Yarley (EYFS/KS1)

Please note, the home learning has been separated into new links (as seen below). I will still be providing 1 numeracy activity, 1 literacy activity and 1 topic activity for home learning each day. All previous activities can still be accessed on the links further down the page. 

 

Reading

Please continue to read at least 3 times a week. The Bugclub books will help you practise all of your taught phonic sounds, but you can also read your own books, comics, children's newspapers etc.

Remember, "The more that you read, the more that you know, the more that you learn, the more places you go!" (Dr Seuss)

After lots of discussions about wolves and their portrayal as baddies in traditional tales, there was much excitement in the class when I mentioned the story The Deep Dark Wood. At the request of many year 1s, we have decided to look at this book over the next few literacy lessons. Whilst it is not a minibeast story, it does support  our work on expanded noun phrases. There is a lovely twist at the end of this book. I hope you enjoy.

Hello Yarley Class! 

We have missed you all so much and we’re really looking forward to seeing you next week. I’ve had to make a few changes to what our class and the Sunshine Room look like, and I thought you’d like to see before you come back. I had been hoping to send these pictures to you sooner but, I'm very excited to say, yesterday we had a new carpet put in the classroom! 

Here are some photos of how things will look (and our cool new carpet!):

 

The Classroom for Year 1 and Keyworker Year 2 children.

Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3

To start with, I’ve set the classroom up so that you can have your very own table. This is because we want to stop you breathing and sneezing on each other too much, because this is how germs spread. When you’re working at your tables, you will have your own equipment on your table- your own pencil, rubber, colouring pencils, scissors, glue stick and ruler. This is again to try to stop germs mixing between us all. 

Some of the time you will be working at these tables, but because we are all going to be quite protected in our own little group (or as we like to call them, ‘bubbles’), some of the time we will move the tables around so that you can talk to each other and work things out together. We will also be playing with toys together; I have created a ‘play area’ where the book corner was, but there will be restrictions, so only 2 or 3 of you will be playing with a resource at a time.

 

The Outdoor Learning Area For Reception

As you can see, I have been busy painting the Outdoor Learning Area. When we return, this area will only be used by the Reception children. Year 1 will be doing their outdoor learning on the field and in the Conservation Area, which Mr Shakespeare and Mr Vidler have been busy tidying and making into a more usable space.

Unfortunately, we can’t have the small armchairs in the reading area at the moment, or the soft toys and cushions. This is because soft things are much harder to clean than hard, plastic items. We can wash the chairs and tables really easily at the end of the day by spraying them with anti-bacterial cleaner. 

 

Monday

Things are going to be a bit different when we come back. We won’t be with all our friends, as some are going to continue to learn from home, and we have to remember even more than before to try to keep ourselves safe, but we will still be able to have lots of fun. As well as our normal Numeracy, Literacy, Phonics and Reading sessions in the morning, we will also be doing Art, D.T, P.E, Music and topic work every afternoon… and we are going to have lots of time to play. We are going to spend more time on making sure we are happy and feel good about ourselves, and are going to spend as much time outside as we can… so don’t forget your sunhats and sun cream!

Monday morning might be a bit difficult for some of you. Reception children will be coming in to school through the Sunshine Room door and Year 1 and Year 2 key worker children will be coming in through the main doors in the corridor, as normal. Unfortunately. At the moment, your parents will not be able to come into the school building. After spending so much time at home with our families you may find it hard to say goodbye, so I thought I would set a challenge for you! Anyone coming in with a big smile on their face will get to choose one of my special smelly stickers!

 

We can’t wait to see you.

Key Information for Yarley Class Parent/ Carers 2019/2020

 

 

Welcome to Yarley Class!

 

 

Equipment

Please ensure your child brings in their book bag everyday (including reading records, reading books and sight words). Any letters sent home from school will be put into your child’s book bag so please check it regularly. They will also need a bottle for water so it can be used throughout their day. (Please label it with your child’s name) The school will provide a snack of fruit every day. We do not encourage toys from home to be brought into class as these can get broken and lost.

 

Uniform/ Clothing/ Swimming

Please make sure all uniform is labeled with your child’s name. If at any time your child has mislaid a garment, there is a red box in the class cloakroom which you can check at the end of a school day. A suitable raincoat should be also named and brought into school. We have PE on Wednesday afternoons and your child will need trainers, and daps (for indoors), yellow T shirts (or in house colours, now available to be purchased from the uniform shop) and blue or black shorts and also tracksuit bottoms and tops for when the weather gets colder. PE kits can stay at school on your child’s peg, unless it needs to be sent home to be washed. As we will be swimming every Thursday this term, your child will need to bring in a swimming kit in a named bag. The kit should consist of a towel, a one piece costume for girls and trunks for boys (not loose fitting shorts) and swimming goggles. Please could we ask for long hair to be tied back and for no tights to be worn on swimming days unless your child is confident and putting them on independently. Again, please can all items be named. 

 

Homework

To make a link between home and school, homework will be allocated on Fridays and is to be completed by the following Wednesday. This is to be completed by the child with your feedback and support and will help consolidate the learning they do in school. 

 

Reading- We encourage your child to enjoy books and read as often as possible. There is an expectation that children read at home at least 3 times a week. Please write in your child’s reading record when you have heard them read. and they will be entered into the weekly class reading raffle. We will aim to change your child’s book every week. Please remember to use our online reading scheme ‘BUGCLUB’. It has many activities and books your child can use. Please let me know if you would like a reminder of your child’s log in details.

 

Independence- We encourage all children to be as independent as possible and have responsibility. Therefore please encourage your child to say goodbye to you at the school entrance and come into class to put their bags and coats away independently, ready for the school day.

 

At the end of each term, the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) will bring home a booklet of observations and activities that they have done over the previous term. These observations are linked to the main areas of the EYFS. If you wish to discuss this, or you have any other questions about anything, just ask!

 

If you have any questions, concerns or information that you would like to share, you are very welcome to come into Yarley Class at the end of a school day.

 

Thank you.

Mrs Salter
