Home School Learning - January 2021

As we enter another lockdown we would like to remind you that we are here to support you with learning from home. Please do not feel pressured to do everything. There are small activities that can be done at home, and we are following our topic as normal from Monday 11th January.

Each week we will be using Class Dojo to upload a plan of simple activities that you can do at home with you child. If you have requested a paper pack, then you will be able to collect this from the classroom door. We will be providing a daily Zoom drop in call, from Monday 11th January each day from 9am to 9.15am, where we would like to share with your child the things that they can take part in that day. This may include some maths, a story, some phonics or listening activities. We will support with phonic videos and read aloud stories online.

We really want to see the things that the children are doing, so would like any photographs or videos uploaded onto your child's portfolio on Dojo. Key activities that are completed will get your child a Dojo point and go towards a Dojo certificate.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can help with. We will be in touch with a Zoom link.
Many thanks,
The FS1 team

Welcome to Foundation 1

Physical Education

The children will have PE outdoors when the weather is fine, with a sports coach from Next Level Sports. This half term PE will be on a Thursday morning. The children will stay in their uniform for these sessions. Earrings MUST be removed.

Library books

Every Thursday your child will choose a new library book. This is for both you and your child to enjoy and read together. Please remember to return the reading diary and book every week so they can choose a new book to ensure they are developing a positive attitude to a wide range of texts. At the moment books will be chosen from a selection that have been taken from the school library. We will ensure that these are left for 72 hours before being handed back out.


Wow Moments

We would love to hear about any recent achievements, news, or exciting activities that you and your child have been up to at home. In the cloakroom area is our WOW board. Please let us know any exciting things you would like to share about your child. You can also pop to the office and fill in a slip. This will be shared in achievement assembly on a Friday.

Rhyme of the week

We are continuing to sing nursery rhymes each week, and would encourage you to sing these at home with your child. We have a small display and table close to the carpet area, that shows our current rhyme. The following website has animations, words and the tracks for lots of great nursery rhymes.

Speech and Language

Alongside the singing of Nursery Rhymes and sharing different books, we would encourage you to talk to your child regularly about the things you are doing and what they have done at school. This will really support their development with speaking and listening and increase their vocabulary. If you need any ideas, please have a look at our speech and language display and ask if you need any support. We do also have leaflets and support information to help with potty training and moving on from using a bottle and dummy.

We are here to help!

British Values

This half term, we will be focusing on Friendship and Respect as part of our Brinsley Values. The children will be talking about what these words mean.

Class Dojo

We use Class Dojo to keep parents and carers informed about the things that we are doing and events that are coming up. If you haven't registered let us know and we can give you the sign up information.

100 things to do before you're 6!

We have sent home a list of '100 things to do before you're 6!' These are fun things that give you some great ways to get everyone in the family involved in having some fun. We would love to see your selfies of you and your child enjoying the some of these activities. Please see the file below for the list. How many can you do? (This has been taken from Shonette Bason-Wood at Spread the Happiness.)
