Year Foundation and Y1 Tavy

Welcome to St. George's!

 

 

This Week Tavy Class are learning... 

 

*Home Learning*

 

 At the current time, there may be times when your child is unable to attend school as a result of responses to the coronavirus pandemic. In the event of your child having to work from home please use the plan above to support your child.  Mrs Fry and Mrs Moloney will also upload the plan and any resources to your child's Tapestry account. Please check Tapestry regularly. 

 

Here are some links which support our curriculum. We have avoided those that require printing as we are aware that many of us do not have printing facilities. 

 

Please have a regard to Esafety, particularly in regard to resources that are live or from user generated sites such as youtube, Facebook and Instagram. We strongly recommend that you view these sites with your child. 

 

Phonics; Please try to only focus on the sound for that day. Keep it short and if your child loses interest please leave it and try again later. Upload any learning to tapestry.

Resources you could use include;

Maths; In addition to knowing how to write the number, children need to understand what the number means. For example, when learning 2 can your child show you by collecting objects how many objects make 2, where the number comes in a number line and spot the number in your home? Have fun and upload your adventures to Tapestry.

Useful Information

 

This term Tavy children will be dropped to the gate at 8.55 and collected at 3.10

In line with our whole school risk assessment we repeat Mrs Earnshaw's request that only one adult is to accompany your child to the gate.

 

We are looking forward to Group 1 joining us on Tuesday 8th September and Group 2 on Thursday 10th September. 

 

Tapestry 

 

We use Tapestry as our Online Learning Journal to share your child's important milestones with you. Please see the documents below for more information about Tapestry and a consent form. Once we have your permission, we will create an account for you and your child. Please let us know if you need to add more adults to your child's account. At the end of the year we will provide you with a PDF of your child's Learning Journal for you to print out and keep. 

 

@teamttavytales

We also have a little instagram account to share the children's adventures and to keep in touch with like-minded educators. 

 

Reading

This year we have updated our reading books in order to support your child’s learning in phonics. Early reading books will be linked to your child’s phonics phase; phase 2,3,4 or 5. This will need to be read more than once over the week. Repetition is an important tool which allows children to process and internalise sound and letter correspondences and to give them the opportunity to experience being a successful reader. Your child will bring home three books a week; a Guided Reading book which will have been read with the teacher, an Independent Reading book which they have chosen themselves from their phonics phase and a Shared Read which your child will select from the school library because they would like to share it with you! 

 

We would appreciate your positive approach to revisiting these books throughout your week and for finding time to share the Shared Read together.

 

 

Secret Mission!

Book yourself a Mystery Reader slot. Once a week at 3 o’clock we would like to surprise the children with a visit from a familiar adult to read them your favourite story or to talk about your job or something special you have experienced or achieved. This isn’t restricted to parents; grandparents, older siblings, aunties and uncles can all be roped in too. We ask for your support in keeping the identity of the mystery reader a surprise, even from your own child! A sign up sheet will be in the office so that you can pick a date which will work for you. If you think you will need more time with the children please let us know.

          

Please, please, please ensure that EVERY item your child brings into school is clearly labelled with their name. Items will inevitably become misplaced and it makes it a lot easier to return items to their owners when things are labelled. Thank you so much!
