Reception

The Home Learning is based on the teaching and learning that the children would have been receiving in class. Home learning will be placed on the school website every Monday and is primarily for those children who are having to self isolate at home. Early Years Home Learning is designed for all children and their families to engage with at home and is designed to reinforce what is being learned in school.

 

You can email us at office@dorothybarleyinfant.org.uk if you have any problems or queries. 

Active Learn (Bug Club) 

Don't forget to go on 'Bug Club'.  This will help your child to continue developing their reading skills. The quiz at the end is just as important as the reading as it helps comprehension. Your child's account has recently been updated with maths games and activities too! 

 

Once on the home page click on 'my stuff' and choose from: Abacus or Power Maths for maths games & resources. Guided or Independent for online reading books.

 

Enjoy! 

Week beginning 11th January 2021

This week we are reading the traditional tale of Rumplestiltskin. It was written by the Brothers Grimm who were German story tellers. They collected old stories from different places and compiled them into their own book of tales. His name means ‘little rattle stilt’. Rumplestiltskin is known by other names such as Cvilidreta,Tom Tit Tot, Päronskaft, and Tees Mar Khan. Perhaps your family knows a different name for Rumplestiltskin.

 

In phonics we will be starting to learn some new sounds. We have moved on from Letters and Sounds phase two to phase three. Although we will continue to recap the sounds we have learnt so far. This week we will be learning the sounds for the letters: j v and w. 

 

In maths We are continuing our learning about recognising, talking about, and creating patterns.  Not only is this good for our colour and shape recognition it also helps us when we have to look for patterns in numbers and problem solving. 

 

Once again here are a selection of activities. Please use and adapt them to suit your child. You do not need to print the activities and resources just use them as a guide or starting point. Practical and physical learning is always useful e.g. making cakes includes maths (weight and number recognition) literacy (reading a recipe). Your child might want to draw a picture or write about what they have done over the weekend.  A walk in the park is good exercise as well as a source of conversation topics e.g. what do they notice about the plants. Can they spot any birds or animals? They could write about their adventures on their return to home.

We will be learning about and describing patterns in our environment as well as making and describing our own patterns too. 

Family Engagement

Discuss with your family why you were given your name: Were you named after someone special?  Who picked your name? What name would you have had if your were born the opposite sex?

Have your family help you decorate a name plaque.  You can write your own name or your surname and decorate it with patterns, stickers, glitter, or any way you like.
