Here is a guide to how best to support your children while they are engaging in remote learning. The purpose of this is to provide a guide for what home learning might look like and to inform you of what the school plans to do to support you.
It is important for children to keep their skills developing, particularly in reading, writing and maths.
Reading: Children should read for thirty minutes every day. This might involve reading on their own, reading with an adult, listening to stories or discussing what they have read. Children should read a range of fiction and non-fiction. Oxford Owl is a useful resource with e books for the colour band level children are reading at. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/
Phonics: A daily phonics video will be placed on the school YouTube channel.
Children can access the free PhonicsPlay account. The purpose of the phonics programme is to build children’s speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. Guidance will be added weekly by teachers with a focus. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/ (Username: march20 Password:home). http://www.phonicsplaycomics.co.uk/comics.html
On this website, children access comic strips to read related to the sounds they are working on.
Maths: Each day the White Rose Maths Hub will be publishing daily videos and work sheets (with answers) which the school have paid for so that all parents can access. The resources are excellent and we regularly use them in school so the children are very familiar with the content and style. The video can be found by following the link below (there is one for four days of the week) and then the questions and answers will be shared on this website daily. The content will be the same as the content their peers are covering in class.
Watch session 5
It is essential to develop children’s counting skills from 0-20, adding and subtracting single digits e.g. 3+2=5 and be able to recall one more and one less of any given number up to 20.
Children can also access Espresso online and use a username and password to access all areas. https://www.discoveryeducation.co.uk/what-we-offer/discovery-education-espresso Username: student10836 Password: school
This website has lots of exciting activities for all areas of the curriculum to engage with.
Mr Wilson and Mr Bainton have also put together and grid of physical activities for you to do over the week. You can find them on the link below as well as a tracker to record all your efforts.
Below is a suggested timetable of what your week might look like
|11.00-11.30||Exercise and play|
|1-3||Grid of activities (1 per day)|
We are really keen to keep the communication between home and school as open as it can be. If your child does anything that they are really proud of please email it to their year group email e.g. yearR@kingsleighprimary.co.uk and we will share work on the blog in the usual way.
Thank you for your continued support as we strive to do the best that we can to support our children and community through this unprecedented time.
