Avon Home Learning

Summer 2 Week 1 1.6.20

Hi everybody, 

I hope you all had a fantastic, restful half term and are all safe and happy.

Year One - your work will be found on 'Malvern Home Learning Page' for this week. Please do the whiterose home learning for this week with today's date. 

Below I have attached the resources for reception's home learning this week. The activities the children will be doing at home are the same as the work we will be doing in school. 

You will find English, Maths and Coronavirus information powerpoints that you could share with your child. The maths is differentiated, please choose either 1-10 or 1-20 tasks based on your child's ability. 

Please send photgraphs or any questions you may have to Mr Brown this week - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Hello lovely Avon Class, 

I hope you are all safe and happy! Can you believe this is the last week of the half term! This half term has flown by hasn't it?! 

This is the last week of Castles. It follows the same pattern that you are used to and there are some optional activities for Friday (as it is a TED). 

I hope you have a fantastic week, please keep sending me pictures - I do love seeing you all. 

Best wishes

Summer 1 Week 4 11.5.20

Hi Avon Class, 

I hope you all had a lovely long weekend and had lots of fun on VE day! This week follows the same pattern as before, which I'm sure you are all used to by now. Remember - do as much as you can - some days will be better than others, and that is OK! If you get behind, start again on the current day - don't try and catch up. 

As always, I am only an email away if you need me. 

Best wishes

Hi all,

Welcome to another fun week of home learning! This week follows the same pattern as before, however, Friday is VE day. I have attached a powerpoint presentation explaining what VE day is and some fun activities that they could do - if you want to. I know this is a bank holiday, so it is optional. 

Have a fantastic week

Avon and Malvern RE task - 22.4.20

Hello lovely Avon class! 

Welcome back to a new week of home learning. I hope you had a fantastic Easter and ate lots of chocolate (I know I did!). 

I will be uploading a timetable of work for this week that you can print off/look at each day along with details of the tasks below. I will be setting GPS, English, Maths and Topic for each day. I know lots of you are working from home so please just do as much as you can. If you start to get behind - stay with the current day.

For maths we will be following the White Rose Maths Home Learning lessons. Each lesson has a video to watch and a fun maths based activity to do at home. You can either take pictures or use your maths book to record any work (if the activity lends itself to that!). The activities are designed to be fun, engaging and age appropriate for your child. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

For English I will be setting daily tasks. Each week it will follow the same pattern of tasks. Don't forget to use the video tutorials I have made to support your child with using their phonics to write words and simple sentences. 

Sound mat support https://youtu.be/mRhq6MWQgaU

Writing simple words and sentences https://youtu.be/jGg7RvxBPzc

Some tasks will be linked with spellings. For year one, please follow the spellings in order starting at week 1. For reception, please find where your child has got to and pracitse that set for at least a week before moving on and ensure your child can spell them all correctly independently. 

I will also set a topic task for each day. I have made each child their own purple mash login to use for Monday's lessons. Year one should know their login - please watch this video for support with reception children accessing Minimash. https://youtu.be/_r1-66GRdvA

Online Reading Resources

I hope you have had a lovely start to the Easter Holidays and that you've enjoyed a more relaxed Monday morning than usual! Although children took a couple of books home from school we know that they will have read those by now and you are looking for alternative ways to continue reading from home.  Although there are many websites offering free books online, some are far better than others.  The best ones are those that give children the opportunity to search (by age or genre) and have a wide selection of books in their online library.   I have attached a document which has links to some of the best online libraries (this is not an exhaustive list!).  I hope you have a great holiday, take care of each other and stay safe.  Have fun reading, Miss Aucock.

 

 

 

Phonics Support

I have had emails from a couple of parents asking for some other ideas to support with phonics as their child is finding the sounds tricky to remember. 

BBC Bitesize has some great videos of individual sounds. If you come across a sound that your child is finding tricky - watch that video. Try and find objects that begin with that sound around the house, draw objects, write simple words! There is so much to do with phonics - make it fun! :D 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvq9bdm

If you have any more questions or need tips for supporting your child with phonics - email me. 

Hope that helps!
