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 9.15am - 9.30am, 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 FS2 team

Your child will be sent home with a colour banded book to match their ability and a library book. 

Reading books will be changed on a Friday but please bring you child’s reading book and diary every day as we are always looking for extra opportunities to listen to them read.

We ask that you try to share a book with your child at least three times a week. It really does make a difference. If your child finds some of the words difficult, remind them to use their phonics for support. Alongside reading the text, ask your child questions about the book and what they think might happen next in the story. Please write a comment each time you listen to your child read or share a storybook together. Children who read at least 3 times a week will be entered into a raffle to win a book voucher at the end of each half term. 

Our library book day will be Thursday. Your child will only need to bring their library book back on this day if they want to change it. 

Tricky Words

Children will be sent home with a set of tricky words for them to practise reading. Tricky words are common words that cannot be sounded out using regular phonics.  The tricky words will be linked to the phonics phase your child is learning. Please ensure that tricky word bookmarks are in your child’s book bag every day.



This half term the children will be doing PE on Mondays. Please ensure they come to school in their PE kit on this day. Kit should include plimsolls/ trainers, shorts/ joggers, a tee-shirt and a hoodie/ track suit top. All earrings must be removed for PE, school staff are unable to take them out so please can you make sure that your child is not wearing earrings to school. If your child has newly pierced ears, please see the school office for a form to sign.


This term your child will receive a maths pack. This will contain some maths resources and guidance on how to use these. A weekly homework will also be sent home that supports the work we have been doing in class.  

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. Please write any exciting things you would like to share with us on a wow slip. All completed slips are to be given to a member of staff as we can then share these with the class and display them.


Children have the opportunity to learn outside every day and need appropriate clothing for the weather. 

Please can you ensure that all your child's belongings are clearly labelled.
