Hello to all of our wonderful families and a Happy New Year to you all.
We hope you find these recordings of our daily lessons useful and
enable your child to take part in the tasks even if you can't make it to our live sessions.
If you would like any further help, don't forget to email me and I will get back to as soon as I can.
News writing 6.1.21
A brief introduction to our weekly news writing session.
In class we would have alphabet charts and word cards for children to use if they are ready for them. so if you have them at home please let your child use them. As you can see from the introduction we always allow the children to give us the letters, even if they are not quite right. Once we have a word we go back over it explaining any mistakes.
As many of your children are still in the very early stages of writing they will ask for you to spell the words for them. Please do not be tempted as the children are learning that making mistakes is the way we learn and it is by making mistakes that we learn. As those of you who joined in the session this morning saw, we always praise the children and never tell them they are wrong or cannot do it. Although a tricky session, we also want them to enjoy writing.So good luck and don't forget to upload it to our learning platform afterwards.
If a writing a sentence is proving too much, them ask them to just write one word. This could be the name of the object they have talked about, their pet or a friends name. If your child can only identify the initial phoneme in words, this is also OK. Once they have read back what they have written you can scribe it underneath and point out the correct letters they have and any they missed out. We look forward to reading them later.

3 Billy Goats Gruff 7.1.21
In today's session I want you to look at the story map we created yesterday as I tell the story. Join in with the actions and as much of the story as you can. Try to remember the two new actions we introduced yesterday. At the end we will practise writing some key words and then I will explain this afternoon's task.
Spelling session . Friday 8.1.21
At this time of year we normally start to ask children to have a go at writing key words so we can see which ones they need to work on. As some of you already know we do send 3 spellings home for them to begin learning. Although during the autumn term we do not test them in class, this term although we don't call it a test, as it is very informal we would ask those children who have been having spellings to show us what they know.
Please remember grown ups that we are asking the children to complete this unaided. In class we would have no alphabet charts or adult support except for reassuring them that whatever they write is good.
The video explains more. Please have a go, even if you don't manage all of the words and upload it to Seesaw. .

The task today, once you have watched the session is to find 3 objects starting with any of the phonemes we looked at today and draw them. Write the name of what you have drawn using your phonic knowledge underneath each picture. Remember to say the word first, and listen to what you can hear before you write it. Ask your grown up to scribe in their writing what you have written underneath so we can read everyone's writing. But remember, the writing is your own, not your grown ups.
