Covid 19 - Lockdown January 2021

 

During the current lockdown, learning will be provided either through Microsoft Teams or through a pack of learning that can be collected from the main school office. Please phone the school office before arranging to collect a pack.

 

Each day children will have a Read Write Inc, Numeracy, Literacy, Topic and live story session to complete. This should be submitted via Teams or emailed to jmccann@vrpsp.co.uk. If there is no record of learning being completed, a phone call will be made and support offered in order to enable children to access their learning. 

 

Information and guidance on using Teams can be found on the schools Facebook page. 

 

If you have any questions or queries please email jmccann@vrpsp.co.uk.

Spring Term

 

A big welcome back to everyone for the New Year. We know that returning to school in these uncertain times can be tricky for families and children but we want to reassure you that we are here to support you. 

 

Our first Spring Term will be all about 'Traditional Tales and Fantasy' with children using their imaginations to bring these wonderful stories to life. Children will have lots of opportunities to expressive themselves through art and design while developing the fine motor skills needed to support their writing. 

 

The first text we will be looking at as a class will be 'The Gruffalo' and will be followed by 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. If you don't have a copy at home their are plenty of versions on YouTube to share with your child. 

 

Children will begin to learn the basics of Reading and Writing through Read Write Inc. More information on Read Write Inc can be found here

Children's Maths Learning will follow the White Rose Maths scheme of learning. As part of this, children will be getting to learn about numbers through the Numberblocks.

You can support your child's learning by getting to know the Numberblocks, investigating capacity and learning shapes at home.

 

 

 

 

Covid-19

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions in place, the Foundation classroom will run slightly different than usual. Children will be regularly washing their hands and this will be a focal point for the first week at school. Alongside this, children will be unable to access resources that are unable to be thoroughly cleaned regularly. We will be constantly following Government guidance and advice from the Early Years team so that your child can access as many different types of provision as possible.
