'Opportunity For All To Succeed'

 

Welcome to Penguins! 

As we are currently learning and working remotely we will be updating this page daily with learning activites reflecting the learning which would be done in the classroom. 

 

  • We appreciate that children at this age need lots of practical and active learning opportunities. Therefore, the activities planned are flexible and will enable families to fit them in to their own routine. Short focus times (15 minutes) are a better option for children at this age and they need lots of time to repeat processes to fully understand concepts.
  •  We will continue to provide activities on the Purple Mash website and these will referenced in the planning on this page. Please remember to save and submit the work for the teachers to see. If you need another copy of the login details for your child, please email the class teacher.
  •  To support the children’s personal, social and emotional development there will be a daily story time session at 2.45pm on Zoom. We encourage all children to take part in this, as it will enable them to interact with the adults and see their peers. A link to the sessions will be sent to you from the school office - if you have not got this by Tuesday please contact penguinsandparrots@gmail.com 
  • Work packs can also be collected for your child from school. Once the work is complete, you can take a photo of it and email it to the class teacher penguinsandparrots@gmail.com

 

Recommended daily activities at home

  • Reading a variety of books. Learning number skills, counting, ordering, writing, adding, subtracting, number bonds and learning shapes. Physical activities such as, running, races, ball games, skipping, dancing, going to the park and making obstacle course using everyday items. It is important to give children opportunities to be active throughout the day. Singing songs, creating own rhythms and musical stories. Taking part in craft activities such as drawing, painting, collage, junk modelling, cutting and sticking activities.

 Thank you for your continued support.
