Welcome to our YR Class Page 2020

 

SCHOOL CLOSURE GUIDANCE FOR HOME LEARNING

 

 The timetable for Mon 6th April is now available at the bottom of this page (Doc K). There is still a problem with logging into Active Learn but we will try to sort it as soon as possible for you. 

 

Firstly, well done for the super home learning you have been doing so far. I've been really impressed with the things I have seen and heard from many of you.

 

'Hello YR - photos and messages' is now available in our Reception Shared Documents below. Thank you for all of your super contributions. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! If your child is not on, it's not too late - if you email me a photo and message, I can add it on.

 

I have also added some documents to the bottom of the page to introduce you to the daily timetable which is starting from tomorrow. If possible, spend some time today going through them and deciding what will work best for you and your child. You may want to follow it exactly, or adapt it in a way that suits your needs - please don't change what you are doing if you have a system of learning that is already working well for you.

 

The most important documents are the Master Timetable and the Guidance (Docs B & C). I will add activities and ideas into the Master Timetable every day. Hopefully I will post tomorrow's timetable by mid afternoon today, to give you chance to go through it first.

 

Please continue to contact me whenever you need to by email, if you have questions, problems, need log in details etc.  Don't forget to keep me posted with how you are getting on as well.

***Reading help from Bug Club***

Bug Club is part of an on-line learning platform called Active Learn. If you have older children at school, you will probably already be familiar with it. 

Every child in YR now has a Bug Club account. On your child's account, I have allocated reading books which are similar to the ones they were reading in their Reading Group at school.

The books can be found in 'My Stuff' under 'Phonics'. Please use these as you would do a school reading book - don't let your child read them all at once but take one a day, or every other day. There are questions/activities linked to each book as well, if you click on the little bug icon on some of the pages. 

There are some additional books to share in the area 'Bug Club'. Your child can earn rewards for completing books, and each completed book goes into the 'My Library' area so that you can go back and read them again if you want to.

I have also allocated some phonics interactive games which you will find in 'Phonics' if you scroll to the end of the books. I will sometimes suggest playing one of these games as a phonics activity on the timetable. You may need to 'enable pop-ups' on your computer to use these games.

Take some time today to familiarise yourself with your child's Bug Club account:

Website address: activelearnprimary.co.uk

User name: Your child's first name and first letter of sir name (eg. Jack Smith would be JackS)

Password: RECEPTION

School Code: q6wx

If you have any problems or questions, don't hesitate to email me and I'll do my best to help.

Keep safe and well,

Mrs Poole x
