Home Learning Weeks 3 & 4 - Easter


Hi everyone!  We have put together some activities for you to try over the Easter holidays.  Many of these are Easter themed and we hope you will find them fun and they keep you busy whilst you are at home.  Look out for the 'Easter Bonnet Making Challenge'.  We would love to see your creations via our class email.  See the planning grid for more information (word document for weeks 3 & 4)


We have also added the PowerPoint presentation that I was going to share with parents during the phonics workshop.  We hope it will give parents an insight as to how we teach phonics and help you with home learning.


Remember to keep up with your reading and learn the sounds in your sound book (phase two and three sounds)


Please keep checking this page for further information and activities in the coming weeks.


We all hope you are keeping well and we miss you all so much.

School Closure

As you will be aware, schools will be closed from Friday 20th March. We will of course be supporting you with home learning to the best of our ability. With effect from Monday 23rd March, we will be using our class page to post activities that will support your child's learning at home. Please check our class page daily in order to access the activities we will be setting. Should you have any questions, however small, please do not hesitate to contact us by email;  We will be available between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm.


Please take into consideration that effective learning cannot take place in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television).  We appreciate that these are highly unusual (and difficult!) circumstances, however please give some thought to where your child works at home. 


We cannot stress enough that one of the most important things you can do at home is to read with your child. This includes reading to your child as well as listening to them read to you. To support this, we are using the online reading tool, Oxford Owl. Please visit Go to 'My class login' at the top of the page. The username is thegrange and the password is Reception. This will take you to the home page where you should choose the parents tab. Click on the message 'free eBooks for ages 3-11' highlighted in pink. Scroll down to 'Browse the Library' and you can then choose the books appropriate for your child's reading level. 


In addition to the work we will be setting each week (scroll to the bottom of the page and open the Word documents to see these), please see below a list of websites and online learning tools that we regularly use in our class. The children are familiar with these and should be able to access the games independently once set up. 

No username or password needed.
