Welcome to the Acorn Class home learning zone

Summer term 2020.

As we work through the Summer term we have provided you with a set of daily activities. Each day there will be a power point with lots of activities including writing and maths ideas. This will follow a similar structure to that of our school day. It is not intended to be followed rigidly as we appreciate that there are lots of other things going on at home. The daily packs will remain on the website so you can access them when you need to.

Y1 children – The pack includes a rainbow tracker that will carry over the week as it would in class. This provides extra little activities linked to the week’s learning and can be dipped into as and when you wish. Please note that your child only needs to do the phonics activity.

EYFS – Little and often remains the key.  During the day the children are used to lots of free ‘play’ time – we call it ‘choosing for learning’. Small world play, construction, singing, dancing, play dough, cooking, playing board games, chatting, drawing, making activities and being physically active are all valuable learning opportunities. Don’t underestimate the everyday activities that you do with your children.

We would love to see their efforts so please take a photo and email it to our class iCloud account. acornclass@icloud.com

On this page we aim to signpost you to websites that can support your child’s learning journey as it continues at home. We will also be sending home packs of activities for the children to complete.

Little and often remains the key. During the day the children are used to lots of free ‘play’ time – we call it ‘choosing for learning’ Small world play, construction, singing, dancing, play dough, cooking, playing board games, chatting, drawing, making activities and being physically active are all valuable learning opportunities. Don’t underestimate the everyday activities that you do with your children.

Daily activities

Phonics – Please encourage your child to access the website ‘Phonics Play.’ Here you will find lots of games and activities that will support and consolidate your child’s current learning. Foundation Stage (FS) children should use the phase 2 and 3 section. Year 1 children should use the phase 5 section.

https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/

Please use the username march20 and the password home

Writing – Encourage your child to draw/stick in a picture and write a sentence (or more!) in their book.  They are working hard to leave finger spaces between their words and using their phonic knowledge to write independently. Year 1s should aim for 4 or 5 sentences. The Year 1s have been doing lots of work on using interesting vocabulary and are working hard to remember capital letters and full stops. The children have sound mats and tricky word cards that they can use to support their writing.

http://www.pobble365.com/  – Lots of picture stimulus for creative writing

Reading  – This could be books, comics, recipes etc. Practice reading common exception words and the tricky words in your child’s phonics folder. Reading to your child is just as important.

Big Cat Collins have a login for parents where you can read leveled ebooks. These are books that the children use in school.

David Walliams is releasing 30 free audio stories for children to listen to. One story a day will be available every day for the next 30 days https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

 

Maths – There is so much opportunity for maths in real life – cooking is a great way of developing maths skills. Telling the time is another great maths skill to practice at home. In addition we have sent home some practical maths ideas for the FS children and some addition and subtraction practice sheets for the Year 1s.

At school we follow the Whiterose maths scheme for our planning. They have created a parents/carers page with 5 lessons per year group (more will be added so keep checking.) Each lesson has a video explaining the concept being worked on as well as activities for the children. It is well worth a look.

Each day the children have lots of opportunities to explore, imagine, create and learn through their own play as well time with an adult to learn new skills and knowledge and apply these through practical play based activities. Wherever possible our planning will take account of the children’s developing interests.

We want to encourage the children to become independent learners and thinkers.

Their learning is focused around the three prime areas and four specific areas of the Early Years Curriculum.

These are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical development
  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Please take a look at the links above to give you more information about our Foundation stage class, our current learning, how we learn and the assessment methods we use.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us

Where is our learning taking us this week?
