Home schooling for week beginning 18.1.21
Please note that next week's home schooling plan and resources was sent last week, so will be further down this page. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
Purple Mash and Mini Mash
I hope you have all managed to log in to Purple Mash and find your way to Mini Mash. There are excellent activities in both areas for Sycamore class. Mini Mash is aimed at EYFS and Purple Mash at years 1 to 6 (although I think there are many reception children who would like to have a go at Purple Mash!).
I have added some "pins" in Mini Mash - these are activities related to our theme of winter. When you go to the Mini Mash main page, you will see a white pin in a purple square in the top right hand corner. Click here for activities.
I have also added some "2Dos" on the Purple Mash homepage. They are on the top bar on the left hand side of the screen. Click here for more activities.
You are given the option to save work when you exit a programme. If you save, I will see what you have done and can send a message back to you. Have a go!
I'm aware that you have been given lots of different activities and suggestions. Please don't feel under pressure to do everything - it's not possible! I'm just giving different options to try to cover everyone's home situations. It's far more important that your child enjoys what they are doing in reception and are enthusiastic and keen to take part.
Please do email if you have any questions or need support.
I hope you have had a good weekend and are ready for some fun learning
Your Purple Mash login details were emailed to you last week - have a browse around and explore the website - there's a huge amount of great activities in the Mini Mash section. Please feel free to email me if you have any problems logging in.
I have also sent you a list of other websites with a range of activities to have fun with.
Please remember that, although I have sent a lot of activities that are "screen-based", playing indoors and outdoors continues to be a very important part of the EYFS Early Learning Goals. I have sent a copy of the Early Learning Goals for your use.
I would love to see what you have been doing at home Please email me pictures if you can.
Take care and have a lovely week!
Hello Everyone - just to let you know I am preparing activities for the children for next week and have put some on the website already. However, this is a work in progress and it won't be finished until later so it may not make much sense at the moment. Please feel free to have a browse but please look back over the weekend for the final version :) Many thanks.
Take care and have a lovely weekend.
If you need any support please contact Mrs Johnston on the following email:
Hello to everyone in Sycamore Class
I was sorry not to see you in school today but I hope you had a lovely Christmas holiday and are looking forward to learning all about our new theme this week – WINTER.
I have added some sheets that you can print off and complete. If you don't have a printer, you can look at the sheets on screen and do the activity on plain paper. Most activities will need some adult input to get started.
You could draw pictures of the things you see in winter for example hats and gloves, robins in the garden, snow and ice. I'm sure you can think of lots more!
I will get back to you with further learning activities each week.
In the meantime, take care and have fun!
Next week we are thinking about where we are from and our local area of Woolmer Green. If possible, it would be great if you could go for a walk around the local area and look at any significant parts in Woolmer Green e.g the church, the road the school is on, Mardley Woods, the community centre, play area and anywhere else in Woolmer Green you may go to. If you can, please take some pictures and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll look at these and talk about them on Thursday next week.
Thank you for your continued support with your child’s learning.
