Starting this week , all children will be receiving a phone call from their teacher to discuss how they are getting on with their home learning. The teachers are really looking forward to speaking to the children and are eager to offer their support. Parents: the call will be made on a weekday during normal school hours (9:00am - 4:00pm) using a withheld number. These calls will happen weekly.*
Don't forget that we are also available via email 9:00am - 3:00pm every school day.
We would love to hear from you. Children, parents and carers are able to use the email below to ask questions, share work and activities you have been doing or to just to keep in touch.
*Note: These calls will not take place during the Easter Holidays.
As the children follow individual curriculums in our base, please use the email address above to contact Miss Hall in order to receive personalised, additional tasks for your child where needed.
In the KS1 Base, we have been reading 'The Little Red Hen'. We have discussed which characters we like and don't like, we have sequenced the story and rehearsed some of our favourite parts.
In the KS1 Base we were able to choose toppings for our pancakes and say which ones we preferred.
We made our own money wallets for Chinese New Year and could watch adults using tools then copy the actions. Some of us could use scissors to cut out the shapes.
We used the mirrors to look at our features and draw our faces. What colour eyes do you have?
Can you guess what we have been baking?
We used our fingers to paint. We repeated the pattern. It was messy!
Some of us have been using the sand tray to help us form letters.
Have a look at us working incredibly hard below.
We had a visit from some Fire fighters. They explained how they help us and showed us the fire engine. We even had a little go of the hose. It was very exciting.
We have been learning about Pirates. We visited Space2Learn. We had an exciting time.
Take a look at some of the activities we did.
Some of us have been learning about initial sounds and can match word cards to objects when looking at the initial sounds.
We have been counting objects. Can you count too?
We know what is a good friend and what is a bad friend!
We visited Tweddle Farm. We learned about animals and it helped us to complete our topic work. We held different animals and even got to feed some. At the end we had a ride on a big tractor!
We loved Halloween! We carved pumpkins and then wrote instructions to share with our friends. We found dark places in school to put the pumpkins. Everyone thought the pumpkins looked scary!
We enjoyed the Gingerbread man story so we made gingerbread men as part of baking.
We made porridge for Goldilocks. We wrote instructions so that she wouldn't steal the 3 bears again!
In social group time, we play lots of different games. We had to race using the tissue paper and straw. We are learning that it is okay if we do not always win.
We go on trips with our class. Some of us went to the National Rail Museum at Shildon. We learned about what trains looked like a long time ago.
We visited a Forest School at Rossmere Primary. We participated in an egg hunt and we used a map to find lots of hidden eggs. It was very muddy! We made a chick using wood, feathers, googly eyes, card and glue.
We went to Chef School at the Toby Carvery. We sorted food into fruit and vegetables and even got to taste some. There were some we liked and some we didn't but we were very proud of ourselves for trying. We had dinner at the Toby Carvery and got to choose the vegetables to put on our plate.
We got dressed up for World Book Day! We brought in our favourite book and shared it with our friends.
