Happy Tuesday lovely Owls.

Thank you for all the lovely photos and videos you shared yesterday.

It made me  smile to to see some od you doing your daily speed sound lessons, reading your books, doing a little bit of writing in your new books, drawings of Paddington. A few of you I can see have learnt how to ride your book what an amazing achievement. Keep sharing.

Grown ups-please remember not to put too much pressure on yourself to get lots of work done. It is only week 2 and we are still adjusting to this new way of working. Please be kind to yourself. It is ok for the children to just have days when they are playing at home. I have been doing lots of playing with my two at home. 'Playing is learning.' The most important thing for us is that the children are happy.

I have put a link to this fantastic Early Years website with lots of ideas to do at home with our little ones: https://www.eyfshome.com/activities-by-day

They launched on Friday with a trial day all about 'My Home' and will continue to post some ideas each day. Maybe if you are stuck for ideas today you could have a look. I'm going to try some of them today. 

Hope you have a wonderful day. It isn't quite as sunny as it has been but its not raining so enjoy some fresh air today.

Looking forward to seeing what today brings.

Love Mrs Campion and Mrs Hoskins x

Message from Mrs Powell:

Dear children, When we do something do we say we can’t do it?  Try and change that today and tell yourself you can do anything.  Remember you are amazing and if you believe in yourself you can do anything!

Good Morning Owls. 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a well earned rest. We have enjoyed being out on the garden this weekend and the boys have been practising riding their scooters.

I am looking forward to the week ahead and I can't wait to see what you are going to do this week. I love seeing all of you on Tapestry.

I have attached a timetable that might help you structure your day but please do not worry if you do not follow it. It is just a bit of guidance to those who may want a bit of help structuring the day. As always, please do what suits you best. 

This week, I would like us to start doing our RWI phonics I know lots of you have been doing the daily speed sound sessions and have been very eager to start the Get Writing books. I have uploaded on Tapestry all the information you need for your group this week. If you are unsure of anything please just send me a message on Tapestry and I will help in anyway I can. I have also attached some Maths ideas for this week, please do not feel you need to do all of these activities they are just ideas of practical ways to do some Maths at home. I have included our number bonds song we use in class and a numberblocks episode too to support. You can do the activities in any order.  
Please remember these tasks are just ideas of what to do please do not worry if you do not complete these at all. This is a very new and challenging situation so being safe and happy is the main priority. 

I hope you all have the most wonderful day and remember to keep posting to Tapestry,

Also, I wonder who will be Mystery Reader tonight?

Love Mrs Campion and Mrs Hoskins

It's Friday! , by Mrs Campion

Date: 26th Mar 2020 @ 10:26am

Wow its Friday!! Well done grown ups on surviving your first week at home-hope you are still hanging on in there! I think you are doing an amazing job!! I can't believe how busy you have all been this week and the wonderful things you have been up to!

To finish our week, I thought I would share one of my favourite stories 'Stuck' by Oliver Jeffers. It links lovely to the story we read for World Book Day 'Blown Away.'

Here is a link to the story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hipx6HJs4XQ

After you have listened to the story, here are a few ideas of what you could do in your busy time today!

1-You could make your own kite using card, twigs and string.

2-Can you remember the the things that were thrown into the tree? Maybe you could draw and label them in your book? You can watch the story again to see how many you remembered and which ones you missed out?

3-Do you have any trees in your garden? Or can you see any from your window? Maybe you could draw me a picture. Are there any birds, blossom or new leaves growing?

Have the most wonderful day my lovely Owls and a fantastic weekend. I will be back in touch on Monday. 

I have sent a message on Tapestry who would like to be a mystery reader. You and your grown take a video of you reading your favourite story together, send me the video and I will post so you can share it with all of your Owl friends on Tapestry. I will reveal the first Mystery Reader tonight! I wonder who it will be?

Oxford Owl have just released new RWI books on the website so over the weekend maybe you could have a read with your grown up.

Thank you for all of your support this week and all the wonderful messages and videos on Tapestry. It has made me smile so much.

Message from Mrs Powell: Good morning children!  This morning I want you to think about how special and unique you are, talk to someone in your house about all the special qualities that make you unique.  What about the people you live with, what makes them special, why don’t you tell them!

Hello Owls!

What a busy day you all had yesterday. Wasn't it such a gorgeous day! We spent a lot of time in the garden enjoying the sunshine. 

Thank you for sharing all of the gorgeous things you are up to. I have seen lots of wonderful maths work, pictures, sunflowers, phonics and letter formation, baking and making cards. Well done everyone!

Hope you enjoyed the story I uploaded onto Tapestry yesterday for your bedtime story. I will post another one later with another special person you may know. Keep your eyes peeled later for another special story. I loved seeing pictures of your favourite bears. 

While the weather is so nice try and enjoy the lovely sunshine. My boys have really enjoyed chalking outside and looking for bugs in the garden. Maybe you could draw a picture and label some of the things in your garden in your exercise books or you could maybe choose an activity to do from your pack and share it on Tapestry with me. We are attempting shadow pictures (I have put a picture on Tapestry)

I have to say it is easier looking after 29 of you at school than keeping my 2 little boys entertained and busy at home! I miss you all and your smiley faces and think about you everyday. 

I hope you have a wonderful day and as always, message me if you need anything and keep sharing. All of your posts really make me smile.

Love from Mrs Campion and Mrs Hoskins xx

PS- I have attached a document that helps to explain what is happening to little people and ways to help manage feelings and emotions. It is quite a long document but you could maybe start to have a little look through it together. x

Message from Mrs Powell

Dear children,

I have a challenge for everyone to do in your house.  Can you think of three lovely things to happen each day, then either tell them to someone in your house or write them down?  I’m going to do this and hopefully we will all try and find our own sunshine.

Happy Wednesday Owls, by Mrs Campion

Date: 24th Mar 2020 @ 7:16pm

Happy Wednesday to you all. 

Hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday. We celebrated my little Leo's 4th birthday. It was nice to be able to spend the day with him. He loves Toy Story so he got a lot of Toy Story toys! Hope you are all enjoying your time at home with your special people and remembering our school rules. Ready, Respectful and Safe.

If you managed to take part in the phonics session yesterday I hope it went well. It is lovely to see the children keen to carry on with their normal routine.  They take place every day and follow how we teach at school.

There are so many lovely rainbows around at the moment I have included a link to the story 'Elmer and the rainbow.' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s12XdwobAcE

Afterwards, tell your grown up and maybe send a video clip what your favourite colour is and why? Mine is purple because it is bright and I love purple flowers. Finally, can you find 10 objects that match yoir favourite colour? Don't forget to put them in a line to help you to count them and point to each one carefully as you say the number.  You could split your objects up into two groups and practise your number bonds to 10. (9+1, 5+5 etc). There is a sheet in the pack with different ways to make 10 which may support this activity if you wish.

I am currently in the process of putting together a timetable for Owls class to help us structure our days while we are at home to start next week. I have tried to link it as closely to our routine at school as possible. This routine is just a guide and feel free to use it as you feel appropriate or not at all! I don't want you to feel any pressure at all, just do what you can. You are doing an amazing job already! I will post it to Tapestry also. (Feel free to give any feedback/anything you want more help/support with.) I really want to keep our lines of communication open.  I don't know about you but we are using this week just trying to adjust to it all a little bit at a time!

I miss seeing you all each day ( also applies to Mums, Dads, Grandmas and Grandads on the gate!)

If i can be of any help/support please send me a message on Tapestry. You will need to add it as an observation but I will see your comment and reply as soon as I can. 

It has been lovely to see all of the gorgeous activities you have been up to. I feel very lucky to be able to share these with you so thank and please continue to share. I really hope that all the grown ups are hanging in there too!

Take care and keep smiling.

Love from Mrs Campion & Mrs Hoskins.xx

Good Morning Owls (Tuesday), by Mrs Campion

Hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday, It certainly feels strange not coming to school and Mrs Hoskins and I are both missing all of your lovely, smiling faces. 

Thank you for sharing some of the lovely things you have been up to.I am so proud of you all and how hard you are working already! It really made me smile to see some of you drawing, planting sunflowers, doing maths, learning to whistle, reading at home, taking part in the Joe Wicks challenge, leaning to ride your bike and make yorkshire puddings. Please keep sending in your photos and videos to tapestry. 

Its lovely to hear that some of the children are worried they are missing phonics! Read, Write Inc are doing daily phonics that you can access. I have attached a Daily Phonics guidance sheet to help you know which group your child is in and how to access the videos. Please can I ask that you do not start the Read, Write Inc Get Writing books yet. I will let you know when we are all going to start them so that we all start at the same time. I will let you know on the blog when you are to start using them and what activities in the book to complete. Thank you for your support with this. Please message me on tapestry if you are unsure about groups. 

I have attached a document of a few apps/websites that I think will be useful and that you will enjoy. The document shows what the app/website is and how to access it. 

Oxford Owl is a website school subscribe to and I have set up a username and password so that you can access all the free reading books.

Why don't you have a look today. Let me know which ones you enjoy.

I have seen lots of people on my road colouring and painting rainbows and putting them in their window to make people smile as they walk past. Maybe you could do this today? I would love to see your rainbows. Thank you to some of you that have shared yours already. 

Please keep posting to Tapestry I love seeing what you are doing.

Hope you have a lovely day and stay safe.

Good morning. smiley

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Wasn't the sunshine wonderful. It is great to be able to enjoy the nice weather. Long may it continue. 

This has been a very strange and unsettling time for our children and my main focus for this week is for you and the children to have time to adjust to a new routine. Be kind and give yourself time to adjust to a new way of working. I want to reassure you that for our youngest children 'playing is learning' so enjoy the magic, awe and wonder in their play. The real focus for this week is well being, both physical and mental so read stories, play board games and encourage their creativity. There will be plenty of time for phonics, writing and maths in the future.So, for this week I do not want you to worry about the packs that were sent home and instead enjoy spending tme together, readng lots of wonderful stories, playing with their favourite things at home, drawing, buildng models, playing outdoors, making dens etc. 

There are ideas in the pack of practical fun ideas to do at home and I have attached a few more nice ideas. At home, we are looking forward to keeping fit with Joe Wicks daily workout at 9am on youtube. Maybe you could try it this morning!!  

Please use tapestry to upload anything you are dong with your child.I would love to see all the lovely things that they are up to. 

Thank you as always for your continued support and please get in touch on Tapestry if I can do anything else to support. Take care and keep safe. 

I will be in touch again tomorrow. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Our number of the week is 6. We are continuing to have a big focus on forming numbers correctly and looking at a set of objects and knowing how many there are (up to 4 objects) without counting. 

I am so proud of how well the children are getting on with their red tricky words. These are words that can't be sounded out so need to be learnt by sight, I will send home a list of the first set of red words we are working on in class.

We are having a real focus on writing our round letters and will be sending home a sheet for the children to practise.

Wow another super busy week in Owls class. We had an amazing time taking part in a fitness workshop this week and we now know lots of new sounds. 

You will find it the book bags a set of sound cards. These cover the sounds we have covered so far in phonics. Please practise these sounds with your child and begin to put the cards together to make words. E.g it sit mat sat pin. It is important that the children sound out each individual sound and then blend the sounds together to make the word. If you are unsure please come and ask. 

In Literacy, we are continuing to use 'Peace at Last' to help us with our writing. We will be looking at pictures from the story and beginning to identify the initial sound in some of the objects we can see and may even begin to write some labels. 

In Maths, we will be sorting into groups and will learn that collections of objects can be sorted into sets based on size, colour and shape. They will begin to understand that the same collection of objects can be sorted in different ways and will come up with their own criteria to sort objects, Our number of the week is number 5. Please help rite this number at home and count 5 claps, 5 toys etc. 

The children are really enjoying their night time topic. We will be learning why it is important to get enough sleep at night and making dream catchers.

Harvest Festival is at Church at 9:15 on Wednesday 2nd October. Can each child please bring a donation for the foodbank. You are very welcome to come and join us. We will be singing a special song.

It is  a 'Come and Join us' session also on Wednesday at 2pm. This is an opportunity for you to come and spend time with your child in the classroom.We would love it if you could come along!

Thank you for all your support at home with the children with reading and practising writing letters. Please can you record any reading/homework you do with your child in their blue diary.

As always, please come and ask if you are unsure about anything or have any questions. 

Thank you for all of your support.

We are so proud of all our Owls and how well they are settling into their new daily routine. 

We continue to have our phonics daily so please continue to practise letter formation at home. We are practising every day in school.

We have read our new class text 'Peace at last' and we will be looking at images  from the story and and trying to identify the inital sound. We will begin to look at pictures of Mr Bear's house and the different rooms. We will then try to draw a floor plan of our own house. We will begin to write some labels to go on our plans. At this stage, we will be looking at initial sounds and what the word begins with. 

In Maths, our number of the week is number 4. We will be looking at groups of objects to see if we can estimate how many there are and then counting to check. We will continue to practise writing numbers.

Any questions please come and ask.

Have a wonderful week.

We are so proud of how well the Owls have settled into their new class and they had a fantastic first full week at school. 

This week, we will be starting our new topic 'What happens when I fall asleep?' which is all about nightime.  On Tuesday, we wil be having a pyjama day so the children are invited to come to school in their pyjamas for the day!(Favourite night time cuddly toys are also invited!) Please can children wear normal school footwear, as we will be going outisde. We will be reading a story 'When the World is ready for bed' and using it to discuss our bedtime routines. We will also discuss things that help us to fall asleep at nght and share them with each other. The children will then create a picture with their something happy to help them fall asleep. 

In Maths, our number of the week is number 3. We will be practising counting and writing numbers correctly. 

As always, please come and ask if you have any questions.

Have a lovely week.

Mrs Campion & Mrs Hoskins.
