‘Learning about caring; caring about learning’

Oak – Reception

Tuesday 17th November

Thank you all for being available for my telephone consultations, it is so nice to talk with you and make plans for your children. Lots of you asked about reading, we introduce a few sounds every week. So far we have introduced m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u, b, f. If you want to play with these sounds and make simple words with them this is a great way to start reading. There are some words that you can't sound out so we learn these from flash cards, so far we have learned, I, the, look. We haven't really talked about capital letters yet or punctuation. We use Read Write Inc, they have a great website if you want to have a look. 

This week and next week we will be finding things out using the internet. First we will watch safety in my online neighbourhood, by online media. It gives three simple rules for using the internet.

1. Always ask a grown up

2. Only talk to people you know.

3.Stick to websites that are just for you.

You could use these rules at home too. I will put the link at the bottom for you.

If there is anything else you need to know, please email, jill.lewis@millbrookprimary.co.uk

Tuesday 4th November

Welcome back! I hope you all had a great half term, although you couldn't get out as much as usual. This week we have introduced some new sounds, we now know m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, ,g, o. there are lots of words you can make with these, sad, dad, pat, pin, on, in. please have a go making and reading these words at home. We are counting every day and counting things, practising touching each one and taking it slowly. Forest school is this week and PE is every Tuesday. Each week we talk about the world around us and what is happening and so your children will be talking about bonfire night, remembrance day and children in need over the next couple of weeks. If you talk about these things at home as well it will help your children understand and maybe add to our conversations in school.

Thank you all for being so supportive.

Find some autumn treasures, leaves, conkers or acorns when you go out for a walk.

Monday 19th October.

Thank you all for making our first half term such a good one. The children have settled very well, they seem unaware of all the changes around the school and are having fun and learning every day. We will introduce some more sounds this week, to take us up to m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o. There are lots of little words you can make out of these sounds at home. This week we will be talking a little bit about Halloween, without being scary and I hope you all have a fun and safe half term. I have some photos of our first visit to forest school, it was lovely down there and we will try to go every other week. 

 

7th October.

Reading!

We will be unable to have reading meetings this year so I am just going through a few things here.

We use Read Write Inc to teach your children to read. It teaches sounds slowly, putting them into words as soon as possible. So as soon as we learned m, a, s, t we started reading small words mat, sat. We also learn some words that you can't sound out. We learn these from flashcards and they are the most common words : I, the, you, are, go, my. We learn them slowly, one or two a week and start to use them as soon as they are familiar. I have put a link in to the set one sounds, please remember we have only learned m,a,s,t,d,i so far.

This is a menu of what we are learning about at the moment.

We are still thinking about rabbits.

How is it different?

Keep your eyes open as you go for a walk and see if you can see some.

It has been so lovely seeing you all this week. We are still looking at our topic 'The Rabbit who listened'. This week we are going to be talking about Rabbits and creating our own through drawing and playdough. If you are at home can you have a go at drawing a picture of a rabbit and have a conversation with your grown-ups about it. 

 

This weeks task on Mathletics is Count to 5, if you have completed this one feel free to have a go at another one. A new task is set on here every week. We will be going over how to long on to Mathletics this week with the children so everyone knows what to do and can have a go. 

 

Purple Mash passwords and logins went home with the children yesterday, there will be tasks set on here in the next few days. We will go over logging on to this website in class so the children know. 

 

If you have any problems or have forgotten your login to Purple Mash or Mathletics please email me and I can give you your login again. 

 

Key Information

PE will begin next Tuesday and will be weekly after that. Children are to come ready and dressed in their PE kit to school as the guidelines are that we are no longer allowed to get changed in school for the time being. 

 

Forest school will begin soon. We will give you plenty of notice for the date we will begin. For this the children will need to bring in wellies and a coat on this day as it can get quite muddy in the forest school area.  

 

If you have any worries or concerns about anything please get in touch with us at jill.lewis@millbrookprimary.co.uk

 

Have a lovely week everybody!

Week beginning 7th September.

We have had a lovely start to our school year with all the children settling into school really well. Thank you all for helping to prepare your children when we couldn't have our usual starting school times and activities.

 

This Friday we will be having a very special assembly on our class screen, Mrs Watkins is telling us all about the kind and loving relationship between home and school and all the children will be bringing home a Millbrook teddy.

 

On Friday we will be sending a Mathletics login and password home with each child, tasks will be updated here weekly for the children to do. Each week I am going to update this page with a new job for them to have a go at. If you have any problems please let me know. This weeks job was about More or Less.

 

Breakfast Club - if you are interested please give us your child's name. It won't be running as it has done in the past but we are hoping for a more limited breakfast club which will be in classrooms. We will hopefully have further details shortly. 

 

If you have any worries or concerns please email me. 

 

 

Welcome to Oak Class!

We are so excited to see you next week in. This is what your class will look like when you start. If you need anything my email is jill.lewis@millbrookprimary.co.uk.
