Home Learning - January 2021
As we switch to remote learning, we have an expectation that your child will carry out learning activities daily as they would if they were in school. They will also have contact four days per week with me via the ‘Zoom’ platform. On Thursdays I am teaching the key worker bubble in school so am not available on Zoom. The rest of the school are using Microsoft TEAMS, however you are all familiar with ‘Tapestry’ so that was felt to be more appropriate for EYFS to share learning. I will be giving more information daily on 'Tapestry' regarding the activities that have been set, as well as links to websites your child should use. Please upload photographs of your child’s work or just write notes about how they’ve got on. I will see this and respond to the children.
The scheduled Zoom meetings will be at 9:30 am and 2:15 pm. During the morning meeting I will take a register of children and discuss the days learning activities. In the afternoon we will share and discuss the work that they have carried out. Links to the Zoom meetings along with the passwords have been sent home via ParentMail. To ensure the online safety of all the children, login and password details will not be published on the website.
If you have any difficulties or questions please do contact me via ‘Tapestry’ or by email using the contact form on this page. For copies of the information that has been sent home, please click HERE.
Welcome To Reindeer Class - September 2020
Hello and welcome to Reindeer class. Despite all the worries and changes to our lives because of coronavirus, we are still very much looking forward to this new school year. We hope that your children are excited and ready to begin their school life with us here at Belmont.
For the first few weeks the children will be learning the routines and ‘golden rules’ of the classroom. Also they will need to learn to follow our COVID safety measures such as regular hand washing, hand sanitising and our no contact policy. They will be settling in, making lots of new friends and discovering what they can do in all the different areas of the classroom. They will also have lots of opportunities to explore our outdoor area. To enable the children to gain maximum benefit from this area, even in wet weather, we recommend that they bring in a pair of named wellington boots that can be left at school and used if needed.
Our topic this half term is ‘All About Me’. Please click HERE to download the knowledge organiser which outlines the essential knowledge that we will be covering during this first term, including key vocabulary, definitions, and other information. Please feel free to use this as a reference guide for what your child is learning, and also, as an opportunity to discuss the facts about the topic with your child and find out as much as you can about it. Any knowledge that your child acquires before a topic is taught in class will help them to deepen their understanding in lessons. The children will be talking about themselves and their families. They will be finding out what their bodies can do and what they can do to keep healthy.
P.E will take place on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Please could your child come already dressed in their PE kits on these days every week.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to have a chat with myself or Miss Young at the start or end of the school day when we are out on the playground.
