Room on the Broom - Story time with Mrs Walker

We thought you would like to listen to a story at the end of your day.

This is the home learning timetable for week beginning 11.1.21. All 2Do's and instructions are on Purple Mash. If you are unsure of anything please e-mail your teacher. Have fun!

Every week the whole school will take part in a P.E. challenge. Let us know how you get on.

Most of our home learning work is set on Purple Mash. The children have been given their own log-on's for this website. They are in the front of their reading diary.

 On Purple Mash we can set 2Do's or tasks and we can see how the children complete their learning.  We are then able to give feedback via Marvellous Me (our 'phone app) or e-mail. This site can also be used for the children to catch up on any learning they may have missed previously or just for fun.  Click on the link below to access the website. 

 

Reading     

Every child has a guided reading book which is changed weekly. Children should read their book at least 3 times a week.  In addition, each child has a Read, Write, Inc. book which should also be shared at home.   

 

Spellings     

The children need to be able to read and write the following common exception words. Some are aimed at Year 1 and when they are confident using these, we would expect them to learn the Year 2 words.

 

Writing

Refer to Purple Mash for writing tasks.

Phonics  

In school we use the Read, Write, Inc. scheme to help us learn phonics (letter sounds). To help us learn the sounds we also learn a saying and a picture which is associated with the sound. Some sounds are "special friends" where there are 2 or 3 letters that make a new sound when they are together. (ay - may I play?) The children need to learn the following sounds and sayings.

Maths   

Maths videos and tasks will be set each week on Purple Mash as 2Do. 

Please check the date and aim to complete the task on the date set. This will allow your child to be inline with what is being taught in the classroom.

Maths Passports

The whole school work on different passport targets. Your child's targets can be found in the back of their homework book. The passports are aimed at improving mental maths skills and require quick recall of the following number facts.

Mini Mission    

Our current Mini Mission is Oh, The Places You`ll Go! Check out the 2Do's tasks on Purple Mash for related topic activities.

Music     

 

In school we use www.charanga.com for our music lessons. They have even added amended units for Covid to avoid singing. The children have their own log-ins for this site for Charanga Yuma which caters for access from home.  If you have lost your child's log-in please e-mail us. Click on the link below to access Charanga.

Alternatively, a part of our regular lessons includes listening to a piece of music and asking:

Do you like it or not?  Why?

What instruments can you hear? (Don't forget that a voice is an instrument)

What style is the music? (rap, ballad, rock, gospel etc.)

Your child could choose a piece of music and write down their answers.
