This year may be a little different then what we are used to so, we will work together to ensure each pupil is supported
in school and at home through blended learning.
Below is our class timetable with activities that we do each day in class, if you would like to follow our same routine.
On this website we will update it with work we are doing each half-term and also in the event that we go into lockdown you can ask the school office for a hard copy of a work pack. Alternatively, please pass your email address to the school office and we can ensure that work is sent home.
Stay safe! Love Clyde Class Staff x
9am - 9:30am - Reading/IEP Work
Wake Up song
Hello - This is an opportunity for each pupil to talk about the weekend/night before at home or about anything else.
This is used as a PSHE lesson to allow pupils to communicate with staff and one another.
We look at the date, weather, what we are having for lunch, what we are doing for the day and pupils will 'sign in' on the board.
We then will start our lessons for the day.
Autumn 2 term will be based on Major Milestones that have happened throughout History.
We will base the first two weeks (2nd-13th November) on Cars/Public Transport Topic.
16th - 27th November - Flight Topic
30th - 7th December - Space
Please see the working from home tasks above, and below the recommended worksheets to accompany this topic. If you would like to include your own work with your child or any ideas please feel free to explore this topic. Please send in any completed work that we can add to your child's topic work file.
Autumn Term 2: Phonics
We will be learning about a different initial sound each week but continue to build on our previous knowledge. Provided below are links to some general phonic activities but as pupils are working towards individual targets there are specifically designed worksheets provided in each pupils Home Learning pack, available to collect from Reception in the event of school closure.
Some ideas to help you support your child with their learning
1. Play "I Spy"
2. Spread out letters and ask your child to find initial sounds "what sound does cat begin with?"
3. Use magnetic letters or cut up pieces of paper with letters on. Mix them up and see who can make as many words in 2 minutes.
4. Allow your child to take photographs of objects they find beginning with each letter of the alphabet. Make a phonic photo album.
5. Make a phonics dictionary.
Through our topic this half-term 'The Music of Brazil' we will:
Over the Rainbow Month Curriculum
Literacy - Reading at home
This half term we will be learning all about the season of Autumn. This will include learning about animals who hibernate and the reasons why they do. Lots of our activities will take place outside and we are lucky to be able to go to the Forest School.
Try some of these recipes while you are at home. Remember to practice your number skills by counting spoonfuls, using weighing scales and checking the numbers on the oven. We would love you to send us some photographs of your finished items!
We ask parents and carers to return the home/school diary each day, as this will enable the class teacher to provide comments and information about your child's day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with me.
Individual Education Plan (IEPs)
This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term. There is a section in the plan which provides parents and carers with activities or tasks you can do at home to support your child's learning. Plans are updated each term and sent home.
All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning styles and levels for each child.
P.E. lessons are on Tuesday afternoon.
Swimming sessions take place on Wednesdays at The Meadows Pool in Maghull.
During our P.E. sessions we discuss the importance of keeping fit and the effect it has on our bodies. We look at ways we can keep healthy through a balanced diet and regular exercise.
We do cookery every Monday afternoon. Please let us know if your child has any allergies.
Cookery lessons focus on independence skills and learning to cook for ourselves. We appreciate if parents can assist with the cost of buying cookery ingredients by sending in class funds each week.
