Early Years Online Learning

Dear Hedgehog and Badger Parents,

With schools closed until further notice, we have set up a number of online learning platforms to support daily phonics, reading, writing, maths at home:

Reading-we have found a great website called Oxford Owl that offers free Ebooks covering different ages. We would advise you to look at age 4-5 and 5-6 but obviously this depends on your child’s reading ability-they could go further! All you need to do is register and start to read. You will find some other useful activities and games for maths and spelling that you will have access to once you register. Our philosophy has always been to read as much as possible and to share stories daily.

Phonics- we will provide a daily phonic focus and suggest that this can be practised on paper,with chalks,paint,outside etc. To help you, the website Phonics Play is brilliant for games and support information. They are offering free use of their site for this period of time. We use it regularly in our teaching of phonics.

Username:march20

Password:home

 We would suggest that 15 minutes daily for phonics would be of benefit. This will also include Tricky Words practise-again this website is great for that too!

Writing- we will offer a daily suggestion of what your child could write. However, if you have any other great ideas or something that appeals to your child then tap into that and encourage them to write! We would be continuing to look for the application of phonics, tricky words, finger spaces between words.

Maths-we will suggest a daily song-many of you will know the Jack Hartmann songs already!-these can be found on Youtube. There will be a daily focus which we will provide more detail on. Obviously, it would be beneficial to keep counting forwards, backwards, recognition, writing numerals on a daily basis as well. Free websites that support are ICT Games, Topmarks, Crickweb, Maths Zone-look for the early years sections to guide you.

Physical Skills- this can be indoors and on a small scale or outside on a larger scale. It is important that children continue to develop cutting, tracing and manipulative skills as well as letter and number formation. Twinkl is a website offering free registering for parents that offers a wealth of activities and ideas-not just for physical development –but for all areas. If you can have access to outdoors or a space inside there are ideas for dance, yoga and simple action activities.

Wider Curriculum-we will offer suggestions of activities that your children could do that will link to other areas of the Early Years curriculum. We will provide all parents with the log in for a brilliant early years website called Busy Things.

 Seesaw- is an online collaboration platform that allows pupils and teachers to collaborate in a safe and secure online space. Seesaw is an app that can be downloaded or accessed via a web browser. By joining or downloading the platform, you agree to share whatever you upload with the rest of the pupils in Early Years and the Early Years teaching staff. Please do not upload anything that you do not wish the rest of the year group to see. All uploads and comments have to be approved by a teacher before they are seen by others. We hope this platform will provide a safe place for us to communicate as a class in these unprecedented times.

We will post a weekly ‘activity timetable’ below.
