Please see below for information on homework and work if you are self-isolating at home.

Reading Books   Reading Books   Reading Books   Reading Books

We are currently in the process of 'bench-marking' the children's reading level. This is to ensure that they are issued with books that are appropriate for their level of reading, and to help them progress.

 

We appreciate your patience with this.

 

Please rest assured children will be issued with their books over the next week. Going forward, please ensure your child brings their books and diary into school each day, so that we may use every opportunity to read with them. 

 

Many thanks,

Mrs Lambert

We are currently focussing on Key Stage 1 Common Exception Words

It is vital that your child is confident in these spellings, in readiness to move onto Year 3 and 4 statutory spellings. 

Below I have included a number of resources which you may find helpful to use at home. We will begin weekly spellings checks of these words on the dates listed below.

English

In class we have been following an approach in English called 'The Write Stuff' by Jane Considine. We apply a method called 'sentence stacking' where you learn grammatical and technical concepts within the context of sentences. 

During lockdown in February till June, Mrs Considine did daily English lessons called 'Super Sentence Stacking'. These videos follow a similar structure to what we are doing in class currently, so you can continue with 'The Write Stuff' approach at home as well.

In the videos Jane does refer to sending work to her through social media, however these videos are not live, so you wouldn't need to do that anymore.

For your English lesson, you will need your homework book and a pencil or pen.

Here are a list of her writing lessons based on short film clips. Click on the title to be directed to the English lesson on Youtube. Please complete one each day.

ExtraORDOnary

Click HERE to go to the NCDYS website where you can view this week's extraORDOnary video.

Below you can follow the amazing things that happen in our Liturgical Calendar. It’s a chance to really explore the rich Church year.

At some point in the week, you could plan and hold a short Collective Worship for either yourself, or other members of your household.

Perhaps you would like to create a Prayer Table or Space for your family, just like the one we have in class. 

Creating a Prayer Space reminds everyone in the household that prayer is an important part of everyday life. When you create a Prayer Space in your home, you are reminded of God’s presence at all times, while also making a connection between church and home. You can use an end table or coffee table, on a mantel or shelf. Invite family members to check out the space on a daily basis.

Your Prayer Life

Please find below a link to some resources which you might be able to use at home, as a family, to help focus on your relationship with God, and to spend some time in prayer.

Your Wellbeing

Below you will find a copy of a 'Coping Calendar' which includes ways to help you stay calm and healthy over the coming weeks. 

I have created a blog called 'Action for Happiness' for you to add photos and comments. Please take time to check in with yourself, your family and friends to make sure everyone is okay! Take care!
