Welcome to our class page!

We have been buy over the last few weeks getting back into a routine and reforming relationships. Please keep checking back to see our latest learning.

Week beginning 19th October 2020

Welcome back after remote learning!

This week I will be introducing the children to their 'next steps' for learning in the classroom. Our enhanced provision can be seen in the following photos.

Thank you for supporting the home learning. It has cheered me up to see so many different activities and photos!

Thanks for all the home learning photos! It's great to see. We've had a range of writing, maths measuring, sums, gingerbread people making, hoovering, drawing, model making and story sequencing. Please keep it coming in via facebook messenger or email.

Parents Evening Term 1

I have been mentioning our next steps:

Week beginning 12th October 2020

Good morning! Today I tried to video a recording of me reading Zog because I'd like the children to design their own dragon. However the file is too big to upload onto the webpage. So head to                  https://youtu.be/lQkWYErUp3Y  and listen here.

 

If you could then draw your own dragon ready for next week when we get back; that'd be great! Remember in class we've been thinking about all of the different features and body parts. Will your dragon have wings? What about sharp claws, fiery breath or a warty nose? Please take a photo and send to via email jon.doyle@ststephensinf.org.uk 

 

 

Week beginning 5th October 2020

Remote Learning Pack

Classteachers have put together a pack which can be used at home to continue learning. We do not intend that children spend all of their time at home learning from screens but the Internet has lots of useful resources. We have tried to give you ideas that might support children from different year groups at the same time to make it easier if you have limited access to the Internet.

The pack has: 

  • an exercise book,
  • Gingerbread Man sessions (via website link)
  • Maths learning (via website link)
  • ‘extra ideas’ (via website link)

All the learning has been planned so that you shouldn't need to photocopy anything. The link for the learning can be accessed at https://ststephensinf.sites.schooljotter2.com/learning-1/covid-19-home-learning/reception

 

For phonics please follow this link https://www.ststephensinf.org.uk/learning-1/curriculum/phonics 

We have been working on phase 3 and 4 (vowel digraphs/trigraphs and blends) but have also started looking at different vowel combinations to help us with spelling. It may also be useful to practise reading and writing common exception words for Year 1.

 

7th Oct - This morning I have assigned reading books that you can access online by following this link https://ebooks.collinsopenpage.com 

 

Week beginning 28/9/2020

Today we went into the woods and created Gruffalo character puppets using natural found objects. 

Today we had music with Mrs Manning. We have been practising using percussion instruments.

Week beginning 21/9/2020

Today we went on a Gruffalo hunt after reading The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.
