Welcome to 

With Miss Carney

 

Welcome to our children and families.

Spring Term – Under the new Covid restrictions Remote Home Learning is now in operation. Weekly Reception Class lessons are available on MS Teams. All Campbell class families  have received a Home Learning Pack which included the log-in details for this. A demonstration video of how to log-in is to be found on the ‘Classes’ page of the school web-site (select ‘Children’ at the top of the Home page and then ‘Classes’ will appear ).

The pack also includes sheets linking to the videos and supplementary sheets for home learning – please read the explanatory letter and list of contents included in the pack. 

Further Home Learning Packs will be sent home fortnightly.

 

 

Home-Learning during lockdown

 

Please follow the time-table for the lessons provided on MS-Teams. The aim is that all children will view a  literacy, numeracy and phonics session each day and then complete  linked activities

If you are unable to view a  lesson the pack can still be used independently and the class teacher will discuss how to do this during the weekly MS Teams video call. 

Please also remember to work DAILY on the Phase 2 and Phase 3 sound mats and  word mats. The aim is that  children should know all these sounds ands words. Letter formation  practice is included in the pack but it would be very useful for children to complete some additional handwriting practice EVERY day.

 

Our topic  term is Animals and we will be focusing on Jungle Animals. Here are the books we will reading together –

WRITING

Please  practise handwriting regularly. The formation of the letters should be in a cursive style as illustrated below. Help your child to hold their pencil correctly in a tripod grip if they are not already doing so.

Children should only use capital letters at the beginning of sentences or  the names of people/places. Children should not be using capital letters to write complete words – this is printing, not handwriting.

 

Drawing also develops good pencil control as does colouring-in. How are your child’s drawings developing? Please encourage them to draw and colour as much as possible.

Scissor skills are also important. Encourage your child to cut out pictures from newspapers/magazines,  or their own drawings, using safe children’s scissors.
