With Miss Carney
Welcome to our new children and families!
This Autumn term out topic is Autumn at School. Please visit this class page each week to find out what we are doing in class and how to help your child with their Home Learning.
Please make sure you have registered for School Ping to receive all school letters and our class newsletter.
Important Notice: The following pages contain links to websites that we feel are supportive to the curriculum and safe but it must be noted that the contents of the websites are out of our control. Therefore, we recommend that parents check them before allowing children unsupervised access. Remember to stay safe online!
Due to Cover restrictions we are currently unable to send home reading books. Once the children have become familiar with their phonic sounds we will provide you with details on how to access on-line reading books. We will be using Oxford Owls.
Oxford Owl are offering access to an e-library of their reading books free of charge.
Parents will be able to select the books specified on this page by registering on-line.
All books are tablet friendly. Watch this space for further details on how to register.
HOMEWORK W/C 14/09/20

HOMEWORK W/C 28/09/20
From week commencing 28/09/20 ALL children in Campbell class should practise their letter sounds (phonics) for p,i,n.
Visit our phonics page by clicking on the red button on the right for more phonics information.
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.
PLEASE HELP YOUR CHILD TO PRACTISE WRITING THEIR NAME EVERY DAY UNTIL THEY CAN WRITE IT FROM MEMORY WITH ALL THE LETTERS FORMED CORRECTLY.
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.
