May Half Term

It has been a very different half term to what we all had planned.  Well done for all your hard work at home, we have loved all the videos, photos and updates about your learning.

As we move forward into May the weather continues to get better with more sunshine promised.  We hope you are all able to enjoy some warmth, paddling pool fun and sun safely from your gardens.  We have been excited to see how many of you are getting out on your bikes too and going on long walks exploring your local environments.

There will not be an activity plan for the half term break, however we encourage you to continue reading, there are still Bug Club books and activities available to you.  There are many activities on Education City for you to complete, but this is not an expectation.

Thank you again for all your observations, if you have any you wish to send over the break, please do.  They will be reviewed and sent out after the May Half Term break.  We have also been working hard in school to prepare new learning environments ready for if we open in June.

Continue enjoying spending quality family time together and hopefully we will see you all soon.

Take care, from all staff in Foundation Stage

Numbots – A new online learning resource

Hello Everyone,

We hope you are having a lovely week so far.

We are excited to let you know that we have signed all the children up to another online programme called Numbots.

Your child can choose their robot and it’s name.  There are stories to watch and listen to with the added option to see the words on the page.  Your child will earn stars to unlock further levels. Once they reach a certain amount, they will be awarded with different badges which enable them to change the robots appearance.

Some children may need support with how to navigate the website or app to get started but hopefully, after a few practises, they will be able to use it independently. The activities begin with some simple counting and get progressively harder. It’s very important that if your child gets stuck with one of the levels that you don’t help them to complete it.  This would identify an area that your child needs to learn which you can help them with separate to the online game. The idea of the programme is that it follows through to different year groups.

Here is a link to the website:

https://play.numbots.com/#/intro

There is also an app available to download.

You will receive and e-mail today regarding your child’s individual login details.

Numbots explained – Please click here for some more information

We hope your child enjoys using this resource.

Kind Regards

The Foundation Stage Team

 

 

Education City Update

Hello Everyone,

We are pleased to inform you that your child has been signed up to Education City using their own individual login.

Please check your e-mail account for more details. 

Your child will be able to use this online resource between the hours of 7.30am-4.30pm. We have allocated some activities in the ‘classwork’ section. The majority of these will be tablet friendly, however, there are some that are not. Please only do the ones that you are able to, these are just an additional online resource to use.  Your child is able to use the ‘subject’ section to play other educational games that they would like to choose and can access.

Here is the link:

5 Beautiful Butterflies

They like satsumas!

I’ll save these so hopefully you can see them when you return to school.
Tomorrow I will release them into my garden, where hopefully they will lay eggs.

Foundation Stage Closure Plan Term 5 Week 2

Hello everyone, we hope you are all well.

Please find attached a plan with suggested activities and links to the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

We look forward to receiving your observations.  Please send any photos or videos by emailing to inbox@2buildaprofile.com with your child’s full name in ‘subject’ box, with a clear description of what your child is learning and what they have said through discussions about their learning.  Please remember a maximum of 3 per child in one day and please send one photo/video plus description per email.

The BBC Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales are also showing lessons for Early Years/ Foundation age children.  Please note the KS1 lessons for England are for children in year 1 and 2 so are not at the age related level for Foundation students.

Here is the link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/primary

We have also added the link into the ‘Ongoing resources and activity suggestions’ part of the blog.

We look forward to hearing from you all this week.

I spy with my little eye…

  1. I spy with my little eye, something beginning with M?  You will have to look very closely 🙂

You can comment on this post.

 

Well done everyone, you found me 😊

 

 

Expectations previous post made clearer.

The previous post has been made clearer-

We are asking for no more than 3 observations as a maximum per family- it is not an expectation or requirement that every family sends 3 per day.  

As a minimum we would like to hear from families at least once or twice a week.

Please only send observations through on weekdays- Monday- Friday.  Observations sent at the weekend will not be commented on or next steps given.

We hope this has cleared up any confusion, we understand families are juggling work and families, as are all FS teachers.   We are trying to give guidance, firstly limit observations so we don’t have too many but also to ensure we hear from everyone.

Thank you for your understanding,

FS Team

IMPORTANT- PLEASE READ

IMPORTANT- PLEASE READ
Communication about your child’s home learning.
Over past weeks we have all been thrown into the unknown and everyone is adapting to a temporary new life.  We have had many observations from some families, which are lovely to see and also useful to enable us to see how they are progressing and give personal next steps to help you support learning at home.
With this situation currently having no end date in sight we would urge ALL families to contact the school by sending in observations of your child and their learning.  We appreciate that for some, you may feel daunted by this so we are sending guidelines for all families to follow.
For example;
One activity on this weeks plan is;

Can you remember the days of the week in order? Maybe you can find a song to help you?

What day comes after Tuesday?

What day comes before Saturday?

Links to-

  • Shape, Space and Measure
  • Understanding
  • Expressive Arts and Design
 
​An observation idea may be…
You send in a video of your child singing the days of the week and answering some ‘quiz’ questions about what day comes after/ before a certain day.
The information written with the video may read;
‘Martha thought we could search the internet for a song about the days of the week.  Together we found an appropriate song and learnt it.  She enjoyed singing it to her family.  Later I wrote the days of the week on pieces of paper and muddled them up.  Martha decided she was going to start with Monday as the first day of the week and independently put them in order.  When she got stuck she sang the song to herself to help her remember.  She was very proud when she had completed the task’
 
This useful description enables us to see how Martha problem solved, how much support she needed and also that the had a clear understanding that there was an order to the days of the week.
 
This observation only needed one video with the description, no further photos were needed for us to understand Martha’s learning and to give her next steps.
When you send in observations please choose the best photo or video that clearly shows the learning that has taken place.  We would be especially interested to hear the ‘child’s voice’ explained in the text or via video, to be able to understand their level of understanding about what they have learnt.
Please send by emailing inbox@2buildaprofile.com with your child’s full name as the subject.

 

We would expect to receive no more than 3 observations maximum per day per family with a minimum of 1 or 2 per week.  Please send them individually- one photo/ video sent with one explanation of that photo or video per email- therefore if you are sending multiple observations please send one observation at a time.  Please only send observations through on weekdays- Monday- Friday.  Observations sent at the weekend will not be commented on or next steps given.

 

It is important to aim for ‘quality’ rather than ‘quantity’ of observations so we can be most effective in our response.
 
Any families we have not had contact from by the end of this week will be contacted to ensure that they are able to access the blog, understand the observation system and most importantly are safe and well.
 
Kind regards,
 
Foundation Stage Team

Update 20th April 2020

Good afternoon,

We hope you have all had a good day.  There has been some guidance provided from the government about home learning that you may find interesting.

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/help-primary-school-children-continue-their-education-during-coronavirus-covid-19

The bitesize website has a range of lessons.  Currently there are only ‘Early Years/ Foundation Stage’ resources under Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.  Please use these at the moment.  Key Stage 1 resources will not be age appropriate for children in Foundation Stage.

We hope you have found this useful.

We miss you!

Dear Children,

We hope you have had a wonderful Easter break with your families.

We miss you all so much. We miss you coming into school and sometimes charging in with excited news to tell us. We miss listening to you all talk to each other on the carpet and we even miss the mess of snack time 🙂

We miss the classrooms and outdoor area being changed into a cinema, theatre, safari park or whatever else you have chosen to create with your friends.

Most of all, we miss your laughter and the happiness that you bring to us all on a daily basis.

We really enjoy seeing all the wonderful things you are doing at home. We are all so proud of you. It has been lovely to read of your achievements and we look forward to hearing from all of you this term.

Continue to stay safe and enjoy your time as a family and we hope to be back together soon.

Love from

Mrs McCormack, Mrs Lapworth, Mrs Kelly, Mrs Rosam, Mrs Laundon, Mrs Lightwing, Mrs Wolmarans, Mrs Richardson

And Milo and Bubbles 🙂

It’s starting!! Day 17- Caterpillars are hanging upside down!

Very exciting news… look!

They still look like caterpillars at the moment but they hang in a ‘J’ shape to start creating their cocoon.

I have only taken 1 picture this time as they are at a very important and delicate stage.  It takes 3 days for them to be safe to move from the pot to the butterfly cage, where they will stay until they emerge from their chrysalises.

Day 15- Wow! The caterpillars are enormous!

Happy Easter everyone!  Hope you’ve had a lovely day.  Here are our caterpillars, see how they have changed!

Day 15 Video

Sometimes they hang upside down.
Can you see them on the lid?
Some are climbing to the top.
They have been eating a lot.
They are huge!

What will happen next to these caterpillars?

Do you know any stories with caterpillars in?  What happens in the story?

Tell us about it…

Day 12 Caterpillars

Can you see the bits of exoskeleton?
They are about 3 times the size they were when they arrived!

Day 12 Video

Can you say ‘exoskeleton’?
After someone has read this to you can you explain what an exoskeleton is to someone else?

Easter Holidays

A wonderful start to the Easter Holidays with some sunshine.  We hope you are all able to enjoy some warmth and sun safely from your gardens or during your daily walks/ bike rides.

We are going to be taking a two week break from home learning, however we encourage you over Easter to continue reading, there are still Bug Club books and activities available to you.  If you do wish to continue to carry on completing learning activities, TWINKL have a wide variety of resources but this is not an expectation.

Thank you again for all your observations, if you have any you wish to send over the Easter break, please do.  They will be reviewed and sent out after the Easter break.

Continue enjoying spending quality family time together and hopefully we will see you all soon.

Regular updates about the caterpillars will still be posted so you can watch how they develop and change over time.

Happy Easter from all staff in Foundation Stage

My special delivery!

Who guessed it?  Caterpillars!

There are 5 caterpillars, can you spot them all?
My instructions!

Our new additions are about 8mm long at the moment- ask an adult to show you how big that is on a ruler.  It is probably about the same width as the top of your little finger.

If you have any questions to ask me about the caterpillars you can reply to this post.

I have one question for you… what have the caterpillars come out of?  And what made them?

Top Tips- Observations

We have had many observations this weekend which are all great to read and see the children.

Here are some top tips that will really help us to manage and assess the observations.  We want to get as much from them for your child’s assessment as possible.

  • Please send in your observations throughout the week as and when your child completes learning activities

Please don’t save and send them all at once at the weekend.  We are trying to check them on our ‘normal working days’ and between our own childcare situations.

  •  Please give as much detail about what and how your child has achieved their learning 

This enables teachers to give a more accurate assessment against the EYFS and provide more specific next steps.

  • Please include any statements/ conversations you have had or video your child’s thoughts on what they are learning

This enables us to see the level of understanding and also link in Communication and Language statements.

We do understand how hard this situation is at the moment and everyone is learning how to live and function in our new way of living.  We want to support you and your child as much as possible and really appreciate everything you are doing to support your child’s learning at home.  The above suggestions are things we have to take into consideration when linking your observations and we thought you might find the information useful.

Take care,

FS Team

Hello!

Thank you for all the observations we are receiving, it is wonderful to see what the children have been learning.  We are reviewing them as often as we can and will send them out weekly so you can see how we have linked their learning to the EYFS and also suggested next steps to help continue the learning at home.

I hope you are all beginning to adjust to home learning, we understand the challenge of trying to home school children and work from home.  There is a lot to juggle, but please remember well-being comes first.

Some posts on here you are able to comment on.  These comments must be related to the post themselves and will be approved by myself or Mrs McCormack, so may not show immediately.

The post I put on earlier on in the week about my special delivery I was expecting invites children to guess what I might be getting and there are clues within the comments of the post.  Great guesses so far from Harry S, Emily and Evan!

I will be revealing what was in my delivery tomorrow… so stay tuned!

You can also see that next weeks activities are on the blog and there are two new websites for you to explore under the ‘resources’ section.

Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Lapworth and the FS team

Week 2 School Closure Plan- Week beginning 30th March 2020

Please find attached a plan with suggested activities and links to the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

We would appreciate it if you could send a comment to this post just to state that you have seen the new plan so we can support any families who are not yet accessing the blog.  A simple- ‘yes’ will be fine, thank you.

Kind regards,

Foundation Stage Team

Suggested organisation of your day with your Foundation Stage child at home

Each day we suggest that your child spends 10 minutes with a reading focus, writing focus and maths focus.  These should be spaced out throughout the day with the three daily challenges set out on the Blog.  During the day children should be encouraged to play and problem solve.
It is not essential that you always play with them as part of play is problem solving and using your own imagination.  It is also important that children learn to become independent learners and do not rely on an adult sitting with them all the time.  The most important thing you can do during this time is to talk to your child and listen to their thoughts.
Each family has its own dynamics, stresses and strains at the moment so we do understand that some days will be less focused than others.  We look forward to seeing any observations of tasks your child completes.
There are new websites and resources being added all the time to the resources page so please keep checking. 

Hope you are all well, just a note to say Hello!

Good morning all children in Foundation Stage,

I hope you are all well and working hard through play at home!  Who started their day with the Joe Wicks workout?  I did!  It was great fun.  If you didn’t get a chance today try tomorrow, at 9am!

This is easy to access through ‘The Body Coach’ on YouTube, you subscribe for free!

There is a new maths website added to the resources page on the Blog for you to try as well, but make sure you are doing lots of maths activities with your toys- counting, adding, measuring, ordering!

I have a surprise being delivered to my house early next week which I am going to share with you via this Blog.  I wonder if I give you clues whether you can guess what it might be?!  Keep checking the Blog for clues and further updates.

Take care and stay busy at home,

Mrs Lapworth and the Foundation Stage Team

Keywords

We have put all the keywords in the ‘Resources’ Page for you to access as needed.  Please only introduce a few at a time and practise both reading and writing.

Thanks

FS Team

Key Worker essential childcare for those critical to the COVID-19 response

Further to the governments guidelines stating;

‘As a country, we all need to do what we can to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

That is why the government has given clear guidance on self-isolationhousehold isolation and social distancing.

And the most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.’

Essential Childcare Provision

CCS will be open to those who have been allocated a place as they require essential childcare.  Please do not approach school if you have not been allocated a place.  Only staff and children who are pre-booked to attend the site will be admitted.

If your child is attending this week please can they…

  • Bring a clearly labelled water bottle
  • Bring their PE bag
  • Do not bring your book bag
  • Wear sun cream if sunny and appropriate hat
  • Try to ensure they wear a clean uniform each day

Staff caring for your child in school…

We will be trying to encourage the children in Foundation Stage to keep a social distance from each other, which is a challenge for them.

  • We will give each child a paper plate with their name on which will be spaced out on the carpet area for them to sit on to help encourage social distancing, for any group time (such as story time).
  • When the children hang their coats up we will space them along the pegs.
  • To limit bringing contact from home and back from school we are asking book bags to stay at home.  Also the minimal staffing and range of staff will mean it will not be necessary for them to have their book bags at school.
  • We will be aiming to do most activities outside, again to encourage distancing from each other.
  • We will continue to ensure children are washing their hands thoroughly at regular intervals.  If your child has sore hands please provide them with a clearly labelled hand cream which they can apply themselves as needed.

We recommend that when your child gets home they change their clothes and wash their hands to avoid any contamination from school into your home.

Please continue to observe the following guidelines and notify school if anyone in your household begins to exhibit symptoms…

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature
  • if you live with others and you are the first in the household to have symptoms of coronavirus, then you must stay at home for 7 days, but all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. See the explanatory diagram
  • for anyone else in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. The ending isolation section below has more information, and see the explanatory diagram
  • it is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

Foundation Stage Closure Guidelines

During these very unusual and difficult times we are all facing sudden stresses and strains we were not expecting.

Children in Early Years will be confused, worried and unsettled during this time and it is important to focus on meeting their emotional needs first.  This is paramount.  Children who are unhappy can not concentrate or learn.  Please take some time to adjust to this new situation.

When your child is in the right frame of mind please enjoy some of the suggested activities that will post weekly.  These will be posted on a Sunday for the week ahead and cover all the areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

The most important part of every activity is the talking!  Talk, share, ask open questions and give your child time to think and share their thoughts.  Let them tell you what they are learning rather than you tell them.  This will embed the learning much deeper.  Most of the activities are play based, as that is how young children learn most effectively.

Please remember children have an attention span of their age plus 5 minutes!  So that means 9-10 minutes for Foundation Stage children.  Praise efforts and if concentration is lacking leave the activity and try again after a snack or short break.  Sometimes explaining that you would like them to do something followed by an activity of their choice helps encourage learning too.

We would love to see some observations of the children’s learning, but we do not expect a record of every activity.

Kind regards,

Foundation Stage Team

Updated Guidelines for Isolation

Following the most recent guidelines outlined this evening from the Government the current advice is;

Following updated scientific advice, we are today advising that if you or anyone in your home has a high temperature or a new and continuous cough, then you should stay at home for 14 days.

www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response

 

Further communications from school will be sent home tomorrow- 17/03/2020.

Advice for Self Isolation

If your child has a temperature of 37.8 or higher and/or has a new cough please self isolate for 7 days, following latest government guidelines.

We understand that you may be concerned about your child missing out on school but at this time it is more important your child rests and recovers.

When your child is feeling better you can continue to practise;

  • Reading- bug club, keywords
  • Writing- spelling keywords, put them into sentences.
  • Maths- order items by length or height in the house and talk about what they have found out.  Complete puzzles, play games.
  • Understanding the world- What can you find that floats or sinks?  Can you predict what might happen before you put it in the water?
  • Expressivce Arts and Design- Use some recycling materials and see what you can make.

Kind regards,

Foundation Stage Team

Police Visit Today

The children have had an amazing time with 3 Police Officers visiting today and a Police van.

They were able to try on uniform, hats, get in the van and hear the sirens go off!

Ask your child what they have learnt today and about the role of the Police, keeping us safe.

Kind regards,

Updates

Dear Parents,

As you know, we are celebrating World Book Day on Wednesday 4th March. The children are able to wear their pyjamas to school. Due to this we have made some changes to the Forest School dates.  The children will have two sessions next term.

RKAM

Wednesday 26th February

Wednesday 18th March

CLMR

Wednesday 11th March

Wednesday 25th March

Over the half term break…

  • There is some home learning you and your child can complete in their Learning Logs.
  • Please continue to read a range of books with your children.
  • If your child can read the keywords they have, please encourage them to learn how to write them.
  • If your child has their green Individualised Learning Book in their bags then there is work to complete.  Please work with your child on this and return the book on Monday 24th February

Please remember we love to receive observations from home and can link the evidence to their development profiles.

Next term we will be learning about people who help us and our real life heroes. We will begin the term with our sensational start on Monday 24th February when we get the chance to explore an ambulance and learn about the job role of a paramedic.

We hope you all have a wonderful half term 🙂

 

 

CLMR Forest Schools

We had another fantastic first Forest School session with the children in CLMR.  They were very good at following instructions and being safe in a new environment. We are all very proud of them.

Some of the children’s comments…

“Can we go to Forest Schools every day?”

“I loved being outdoors”

“I guessed I would find some creatures under the log, and do you know there were loads more than I thought. I loved the centipede the best.”

Next time we will focus on story telling, creativity and imagination and the children will make their own forest potions.

 

RKAM Forest School

The children all had a fantastic time in Forest Schools today. We are so proud of how well they listened, followed instructions and learnt how to be safe in the area. Our first session focused on exploring the Forest School. The children started by walking round together and identifying any potential risks. We then discussed what we can do to ensure we are safe.

Some of the children’s comments…

“This is the best day ever!”

“I’ve never tried climbing a tree before, but I can do it!”

“I loved working in a team.”

“My favourite part was making a slide and a bed for some ants in the mini-beast hotel.”

“I can’t wait to tell my Mum and Dad how high I climbed in the tree.”

We are looking forward to taking class RCLMR next week.
