Talk for Writing
From Reception the children learn to write using 'talk for writing', this uses pictures and photographs to plan a piece of writing and then use this as a guide to produce their work.
Here is an example...
Home Learning
The following activities will be set daily for the children via Class Dojo:
A Maths Activity: We will alternate between 'My Maths' and a practical maths activity. When completing a practical activity then we would ask parents/children to send a picture of it via Class Dojo.
A Phonic Activity: This will be either a 'Phonics Play' session (a link will be given) or a practical phonics activity.
An English Activity: At least 1 activity a week will be based upon a book that the children have read for pleasure at home, eg, a book review, an alternative ending or writing another chapter.
A Daily Story: This will be a recorded story read by a staff member for the children to listen to on Class Dojo.
A Daily Read For Pleasure.
A Kahoots Quiz: Once a week we will have a Kahoots Quiz where the children can login at a certain time to play the quiz with the rest of their class.
A Special Topic: Once a week the children will be set a special activity which could be something like planting a seed or baking a cake or take a flower apart and label the parts that you can see...
All activities will be set through Class Dojo.
