Class Activity

All Classes Activity Flow

Class 1- Tapestry

I understand that lots of people hadn’t received the activation link for Tapestry. I think (hopefully) I have now resolved this. Please check your junk in case you can’t see the email. Any problems, come and see me and I will see if I can sort it out.

Tapestry is only applicable to Reception children, so you won’t receive an email if your child is in Year 1.

Thanks,

Miss Latham

Tapestry log in

Hello,

Keep an eye out in your emails for a notification with log in details to view your child’s Tapestry account. If you haven’t had an email by tomorrow, come and see me on Thursday morning and I will look into it for you.

You can download the Tapestry app from any app store, for free, onto a mobile phone, or access it through the browser.

Thanks,

Miss Latham

Mother’s Day Stay and Play

I hope everyone who attended enjoyed the stay and play afternoon in Class 1 today.

The children had been excited about it all day and really enjoyed having you into class for the first time.

Thank you for also helping to tidy the classroom after. That was really appreciated. Hopefully we will be able to host another stay and play session next half term to celebrate the end of the school year.

Thanks,

Miss Latham

Class 1 Forest School

Hello,

Thankfully our brilliant caretaker has fixed the damage to the Forest School area caused by the storm, over Easter break. This means that we will be able to resume our weekly Wednesday Forest School afternoons.

Hopefully we will have some lovely weather, but it might be a good idea to send your child in with an old top that they can change into for the afternoon. I will provide the water proof trousers.

If the weather gets very hot over the next few weeks, a cap and sunscreen may also be a good idea/

Our first session will be tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks,

Miss Latham

Class 1 belated ‘Mother’s day stay and play’

Hello,

Just a reminder that Class 1 are hosting a stay and play session on Thursday (28th April) from 13.30 until home time. Although it was intended as a Mother’s day event, if a mum is unable to attend, then we are happy for a dad, nan, grandad, aunt etc to attend in their place. The limit is one adult per child due to space in the classroom.

We have lots of fun activities planned, which you will be able to do alongside your child/children and there will be coffee, tea and cakes to enjoy as well.

I know that the children are excited for you to join them in class.

Please report to the main reception on arrival to school.

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday!

Thanks,

Miss Latham

Support for Year 6 children aged 11+

Hello,

I understand that this time of year for our year 6 children can be quite a stressful and worrying time. With SATs and the transition to secondary school, it can be overwhelming and normal for children to experience anxiety about changes happening in their lives. I therefore  wanted to signpost parents to the ‘Kooth’ charity.

Kooth provides a safe, secure means of accessing help via the internet.  By accessing Kooth children aged 11 and above can benefit from:

  • A free, confidential, anonymous and safe way to receive support online.
  • Out of hours’ availability. Counsellors are available online from 12noon to 10pm on weekdays and 6pm to 10 pm at weekends, every day of the year on a drop in basis.
  • Online Counselling from a professional team of BACP qualified counsellors is available via 1-1 chat sessions or messaging on a drop in basis or via booked sessions.
  • Discussion Boards which are all pre-moderated, allow young people to access peer to peer support.
  • Online Magazine full of moderated articles many of which are submitted by young people offering advice and guidance on a huge range of topics.
  • No referral is required.
  • Young people can register for kooth independently at www.kooth.com

If you would like to learn more about ‘Kooth’, watch the introductory video or email me via the school office.

I hope you find it useful.

Homework for Easter

Hello,

For homework over the Easter holiday, I have set some reading games for the children.

Year 1 have a 1 minute reading challenge. Cut out each word card. Set a timer for 1 minute. Segment and blend the words to read them. If it is read correctly, you can keep that card. At the end of 1 minute, count how many words have been read. Next time, challenge yourself to read more words in a minute. Can you keep beating your time?

I’ve given you a table, so you can track your score and hopefully over the 2 weeks, be able to read more and more words within the minute.

Reception children have been given a ‘Reading pop’ game. Cut out the cards and put them into a feely bag. Take it in turns to take a card. Segment and blend the word to read it. If it is read correctly, you can keep the card. If not, put it back into the bag. If you pull out a ‘pop’ card, then any cards you have should go back into the bag. The person with the most cards collected at the end, wins.

If your child has lost a copy of their game, you can print them off below.

Happy Easter!

Class 1 have had a lovely few days celebrating Easter! It started off with hot cross bun eating on Tuesday and ended with a morning of fun creating their own Easter crowns. I was really impressed with their creativity and hope they enjoy wearing them for Easter celebrations. A special mention goes to Rosa and Mila who won the Easter crown competition!

I hope you all have a lovely Easter break filled with glorious weather and copious amounts of chocolate! I look forward to seeing you all in 2 weeks time.
