Summer Term 2020
Our big question this term is....
This will be the final week for on line learning at home. We are planning for a full return to school in September in line with Government guidance. Please continue to check the school website regularly for updates and details about returning in September. Thank you for your engagement with the on line learning during these difficult months.
Here is a message from our local library;
I am delighted to announce that we have just launched a new Summer Reading Challenge website especially for children in Cheshire West and Chester. It includes:
And of course there’s also the national Silly Squad website where children can join to read books and get online rewards for doing so at www.sillysquad.org.uk.
We’re still working hard to get our libraries open as soon as possible. Storyhouse is reopening this Saturday, followed by Ellesmere Port, Neston, Northwich and Winsford libraries on the 13 July with revised opening hours. A further five libraries will be reviewed two weeks later. The Summer Reading Challenge will be almost entirely online this year.
Read, Read, Read!!
Please read every night with a grown up at home and ask them to sign your book.
REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR READING RECORD TO SCHOOL WITH YOU EVERY DAY.
'Phonics is a way of teaching children to learn to read quickly and skillfully.' DoE 2013.
We are working hard to learn all our different phonic sounds. The children will be bringing home sound mats, words and games to support their learning in a fun way.
Please encourage the children to use these as often as possible.
We use 'alien words' each day to practise segmenting and blending sounds. These words are made up and really make us think about the sounds that we can see.
In numeracy this half term we will be learning about number, place value, addition and subtraction and also developing our problem solving skills.
Play the number bonds game by bursting bubbles that make pairs to 10 or 20. You have to be fast!
Play 'Hit the Button' to answer questions as quickly as possible. Have fun!
This is the prayer we are learning to sing and sign in Year 1 as part of our reflection of the Angelus prayer.
Now you can practise learning the words and actions at home!
