Support at Home 2020-2021

Week Commencing 19.10.20

 

Dear Reception Parents and Carers,

Your support in continuing your child’s education in these uncertain and challenging times is much appreciated. We hope to provide as much support as possible to enable you to keep your child happy, engaged and learning at home. We are suggesting activities and structuring them through a timetable, but we are aware that some of the activities need adult support or access to a computer, so feel free to follow your own schedule or vary the activities. Some of these may involve more formal ‘sit-down’ tasks, but most will be open ended practical activities. This will by no means be a compulsory or exhaustive list, but is intended as a guide and a starting point.

 

It would be very helpful if you are able to upload observations to Tapestry to let us know how your child gets on with some of these activities.

 

Your child has been given the office.com login details in their reading diary. MyUSO login details are the letters and numbers before @archdeaconcambridges.richmond.sch.uk and the passwords is the same passwords you have been given without the hashtags at the end. When you login to  https://my.uso.im/ you will have access to various learning resources in the Reception area. Your child can use these resources however they wish –many will already be familiar with BusyThings from school.

 

Teachers will be contacting groups of children via Teams. We hope this is a useful way to keep in contact with school friends and teachers. Teachers are also available via reception@archdeaconcambridges.richmond.sch.uk

 

This letter is being shared via Tapestry and the School’s website so you can access it on different devices and through different platforms.

 

We hope this information is helpful and we look forward to reading your observations on Tapestry. When we see them, we will give them a ‘like’ to let you know we have looked at the observation and read the comment. We might also add some comments, give you some feedback, suggest teaching tips or next learning steps.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Reception Team

This week we are focusing on children’s ability to recognise, represent and manipulate numbers to 5.

  • Count toys at home, making sure your child is saying a number for each item as they touch or point the item.
  • Use counters to represent a set of objects on a 5 frame, for example 2 cards, 2 beads on the frame
  • Pretend your teddy bear is 5. Plan a birthday party for 5. What do you need? E.g. 5 candles, 5 cupcakes, etc.
  • Number detective – go outdoors to spot 5 of different items, e.g. leaves, stones, bugs, etc.

RE:

This week we are discussing ‘what is precious’ to develop children’s understanding that Christians believe ‘we are precious to God’.

  • As a parent share something that is precious to you, e.g. photograph of someone special, an item with a special meaning like a ring or an object that brings special memories. Explain to your child why this item is precious to you.
