Term 5 - Week 5 - 18.5.2020

Dear Parents and Carers,


We cannot believe this is the last week of term 5.  We never imagined at the beginning of this year that term 5 would be quite like this.  We are so proud of all of our Foundation Stage children and the learning that we see on Tapestry is absolutely fantastic.  Thank you parents and carers for your communications with us via Tapestry and email and for finding the time to post photographs and videos of the learning happening in your homes.


Week 5 takes us to the beach, looking and listening to what you can see and hear.  We will be learning to double in Maths.  In Writing and Phonics we are reading, spelling and writing words and captions.  The letter we are learning to write in Handwriting this week is 'v'.  As always don't forget to share books together and use the Oxford Owl and Collins Big Cat websites to continue to access reading books for your child. 


As always just do what you can, there is no need to print any resources, the plan uses household objects, pens and paper.  Most importantly have fun and enjoy learning together.  We wish you a wonderful weekend.  Please contact us by email or Tapestry if you have any questions.  We send the children a BIG 'hello'!


From The Foundation Stage Team


Term 5, week 5 - 18.5.2020

Handwriting Practise - We are now learning to write the Zig Zag family of letters starting with 'Z' this week.


Using the website 'Letter Join' your child can learn to write the letter 'z' with the correct formation.    It is very important that the children learn to write letters correctly.  This website includes instructions of how to write each letter the correct way and then gives lots of opportunities to practise.  Mrs Finney has also added a video on Tapestry demonstrating how to write the letter 'z'.

As well as reading books as a family for pleasure it is important that the children continue to practise their reading skills.  The Oxford Owl website has many books that the children can attempt to read independently, similar to the books they have been reading at school.  The link to this website is below.  Once on the website click the 'My class login' button.  There is then a username and password for each class to enter.  Once you are logged on you can choose different books to read together.  Enjoy.
