Physical exercise ideas;
Look out for 'PE with Joe Wicks' at 9am every weekday on youtube.
Cosmic Yoga for kids on youtube is yoga to familiar stories.
Hopscotch in the garden - you could use counting in 2s, 5s and 10s or use different phonic graphemes.
Orchard toys have free printable resources and activities.
Oxford Owl have a selection of free ebooks to read and they are grouped by age.
We have a broad and balanced curriculum. Throughout the year we will cover interesting and exciting topics, these include:
Each week your child will read with an adult at school and this will be recorded in their reading record. We encourage parents/carers to read as often as possible at home, please aim for a minimum of three times a week, and write a comment in your child's reading record. Reading books will be changed once a week in school on a Monday. Your child we re-read this book throughout the week to build their fluency and confidence.
Spellings will be given on a Friday to be tested the following Friday. Spellings will include number names (zero to twenty), days of the week, months of the year, common exception words as well as words linked to our daily phonics sessions.
Homework will be given out each Friday and will include both English and Maths, where possible this will be electronic. We ask that homework is handed in on the following Wednesday. We encourage children to do their own homework as it is always better to have a go and make mistakes rather than to not try at all.
It is essential that all children have:
Labelled clothes (including P.E kit)
Named water bottles
Book bags every day
Reading book and records every day
Homework to be handed in on a Wednesday
PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday
