Hi Reception!

I hope you are well and have been enjoying the sunshine that we've had over the last few days. 

Since it is half term, we thought that we would give you a bit of a break from our usual timetable!  Instead, we have offered you a P.E challenge that you might want to have a go at if you wanted to.  We usually have our ‘Run a Mile Week’ in school this term so it might be nice to have a go at this at home. The ‘Daily Mile at Home’ is a fun and easy way to keep fit and maintain good health and well-being for you and your family.  During each part of the week, you are offered a different challenge when running your mile.   

You could also continue with your reading on Oxford Owls.

We will continue with our regular home learning timetable from 1st June.

Have fun and stay safe!

Mrs Hutchinson :)

Hi Everyone!

Hope you have all had a lovely week. It has been great to see all of the home learning going on. You have all been very busy. Keep up the good work!
Next week is all about Superworm! Lot's of fun activities for you to try, but please remember you can do as much or as little as you wish. The main thing is to keep safe and have fun!

Hope you enjoy next weeks activities.

Happy V.E Day anniversary Reception!

75 years ago to the day, peace one again prevailed in Europe. Today, we have a bank holiday to celebrate and remember those who fought so bravely during the Second World War.

V.E Day, which stands for Victory in Europe Day, was the day on which allied forces announced the surrender of Germany in Europe on May 8th, 1945.

You may now be at home due to the Coronavirus outbreak, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t still have a weekend of celebrations to mark this special moment in history. There are plenty of ways you can still get involved in the big day, from hosting a special VE Day celebrations picnic or afternoon tea with your household to decorating the house with flags and bunting. If you’re a dab hand in the kitchen, which I know many of you are, try creating up some VE Day-inspired snacks and treats. 

I hope that the information and activity sheet that we left for you last week might give you some extra information on V.E day and also offer some interesting activities for you to have a go at.

On a different note, it was once again lovely for us to ring home and find out how you are doing.  You are all managing so well! More of you are also adding work and photographs onto Google Classroom.  I love looking through what you have done.

I have attached next week’s timetable.  Remember to only do what you can and I am here to help if possible.

Take care and have a fantastic weekend

Mrs Hutchinson :)

Hi Everyone!

 

I hope you are all well and keeping safe? I have loved looking at all your hard work you are doing at home. There is some fantastic learning taking place. Keep up the great work!

I have put together a new timetable of activities for next week, which we think you will love as we are learning about the Gruffalo! Hope you have as much fun completing these activities as we have organising them. 

There are a few notices to share this week:

VE Day:
Next Friday is the anniversary of V.E day commemorating the official end of the Second World War in Europe; it has been specifically arranged to be a bank holiday this year. We had planned to organise activities in school designed to support understanding and to celebrate. As this is not possible, we still think it is appropriate to not let this pass us by. Attached you will find some suggested activities to do at home to celebrate VE Day. You can do as few or as many as you want. If you have siblings in school, you can mix and match activities with them too. It would be lovely to see some photos of activities you do.

Reading:
We appreciate that many of you may have completed the reading books you were sent home. Fortunately, one of of our reading schemes, Oxford Owl, have released many of their books as free e-books that can be read at home on tablets, laptops or computers.
In order to access these books, you need to follow this link to create a log in. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/user/sign_up.html

Once you have verified your email address you will be able to view the free e-book library and the books available. To find your child's level, click on Levels then Oxford Level.
I will be in touch next week (week beginning 4.5.20) to tell you which Oxford Level books your child should be reading. You can make a note of the book and pages your child has read in their reading diary as you would for school.

Important Contact Note:
For confidentiality, please contact school via telephone or from your own personal e-mail account to blackfell.primary@schools.sunderland.gov.uk

Google Classroom in an open forum and designed to assist children and parents with work at home. Any messages left on here or sent from the general EYFS gmail account are not private.

Take care and stay safe.

Hi Everyone! I hope you have all had a lovely Easter and enjoyed completing some of the activities I set for you. As the Easter holidays come to an end, I have put together a new timetable of activities for next week that you may like to try. Please feel free to share your learning on Google Classroom as I would love to hear how you are all getting on.

I hope everyone is well and has managed to access the resources on Google Classroom without too many problems. Thank you for your continued support during this time. We have compiled some fun, hands-on Easter activities for you to have a go at during the Easter holidays if you wish. There is a huge variety of activities and although some have been designed with Year groups in mind however any of them can be completed by children regardless of year group. Please take some time to unwind and relax. If you do feel like trying some of these activities, the resources are uploaded and numbered below. I would love to see some photos of your creations if you make anything (you can post these directly on this stream or onto the assignments set in classwork). We hope you have a lovely Easter break with your families.  

A new timetable of suggested activities will be posted for the first week back after the holidays. Children can still use this page and the blog on Purple Mash to keep in touch with me and each other. 
 

Many thanks, Mrs Hutchinson

Hello Reception class, 

I hope you are all staying safe and keeping busy!

I have added some links on our page for you to have a look at and find some activities that you would like to do. Has anyone joined in with Joe Wicks' P.E sessions? It looks like a lot of fun! 

Please continue with the activities that you were given last week. There will be new activities updated soon to give you some ideas of what you could get up to. 

 

Take care everyone and be in touch soon,
