Stay and Play Online Session 2 Early Mathematics 2020

Whilst we can't run Stay and Play sessions in school at the moment, here's the next best thing! Hopefully it gives you a flavour of how we teach children maths in Reception and the ways in which you can support their mathematical development at home.

Learning Characters notes from home sheet

As mentioned in the Stay at Play at home video session, here are the learning characters notes sheets.  Please print them off and cut them up into separate notes.  Then, when your child does something at home that you'd like to tell us about, choose the appropriate character, write a note on it and send it in to school by placing it inside your child's reading diary.  We will then add it to their learning journey folder in school and it will help to build up the picture of all your child is capable of, both in school and at home.  Many thanks.

Stay and Play Online Session 1 Reading and Phonics October 2020

Due to the current restrictions in place it won't be possible this term to run our stay and play sessions as normal in school. However, do not fear! Below is a presentation which hopefully gives you a taster of what you would have experienced had you all been able to come into school. The theme of this first online stay and play session is reading and phonics. And the good thing about it being online is you can watch it whenever you like! It lasts about half an hour. I hope you find it useful and enjoy seeing some of what your children have been getting up to in school.
