DFE – Phonic Lessons

27th April

From Monday 27 April, online phonics lessons are available from Letters and Sounds for home and school.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw/channels?view_as=public

These videos will be written and presented by phonics experts and funded by the Department for Education. The online lessons are designed to cover new phonics teaching that the children would have received over the summer term had they been in school.  Three sets of lessons will be available over the course of the morning.

10 am-  Phases 3 & 4 (Rec/Yr1)

10:30am – Phase 5 (Yr1)

11 am- A phase 2 recap (Rec)

A new lesson will be uploaded Monday to Friday at the times above during the summer term. There is also a guidance film for parents to explain the basics of Phonics and how parents can support their child is also available.

This would be a really useful website for children to access every day.

Thank you

Miss Lawlor & Miss Crossley

Pray for the World with Pope Francis

The month, in his monthly video, the Holy Father calls for us to pray for the world in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Let us all pray together for the sick, for the people who are suffering. We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas — we who are put to the test — and deliver us from every danger. O glorious and blessed Virgin. I thank all Christians, all the men and women of good will who pray at this moment, in unison, whichever religious tradition they belong to.”

On Friday 27 March at 5pm UK time (6pm Rome), the Pope will pray on the steps of St Peter’s basilica. Although the square will be empty, there will be a period of Adoration and readings from Scripture. At the end of the service, the Holy Father will impart his Urbi et Orbi blessing and will offer a Plenary indulgence for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rainbow of Hope

Dear boys and girls,

Over the weekend lots of other children have made creative pictures, collages and paintings of rainbows and placed them in their windows for people to see. This is called a ‘rainbow of hope’. A rainbow of hope will brighten up someone else’s day and it will make someone smile. I know that you all love a learning challenge so I thought I would set a mini task that you can do at home.

Your challenge is to make a picture of a rainbow (be as creative as you can), ask your family to take a photograph and email it to school. Any photographs that I receive I will put up in our classroom window so that you can see when you come back to school. We miss each one of you very much and hope that you and your family are all keeping healthy and well.

I can’t wait to see your creations…
From
Miss Lawlor & Miss Crossley

Please email acolgan@st-vincents.rochdale.sch.uk with your pictures.

NumBots – Reception

Last week (11th November), KS1 launched the use of ‘NumBots’; a mathematical software program linked to TT Rockstars which KS2 currently use. The program can be downloaded as an app or used on the internet and it is compatible with both PCs and Tablets. The program can be accessed from home using the log in details which have been stuck in the pupil’s reading records. NumBots has already been introduced to the pupils and they will have regular access in school, however it maybe nice for families to spend some time together understand how the story of the game progresses and the mathematical challenges involved.

Thanks for your continued support.

Fluoride Checks

Please note your child is coming home with a fluoride form today (5th November) from the school nurse, can you please ensure you return the form within the next 7 days. The fluoride checks will take place on the 19th November.  Thank you.

 

Reading at Home

Reminder please can you ensure you read with your child at home and write a short comment or sign their reading records appropriately.  Thank you.

 

Please find below the useful information from the Reception Curriculum meeting;

End of Reception expectations

The seven areas of learning outlined in the Early Years Curriculum lead into 17 ‘Early Learning Goals’ (ELG). These ELG’s state the government expectation for Reception children at the end of their first year of school. Whilst these end goals are relevant to bear in mind, it is important that children do not miss out on the many developmental steps along the way. The characteristics of learning running through and underpining all seven areas of learning and development focus on processes rather than outcomes. The three characteristics to which all learning is measured are identified as playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically. Your child will be learning many new skills and we will be working with you on how best to support and help your child to achieve or exceed the goals by the end of the year.

At the end of the reception year, a ‘good level of development is defined by the government as achieving all the goals numbered 1 – 12. For this we would expect children to be independently demonstrating these skills (i.e. without support). The final goals (numbered 13-17) are also significant and count towards an overall score of developmental progress for each child. We realise that all children are individual and may require different levels of support in moving forward towards or beyond these goals during the year.

Phonics
At St. Vincent’s we follow ‘Letters and Sounds’. Children in Reception will recap phase 1 (encouraging them to tune into sounds around them), before moving through phase 2, 3 and 4. Throughout these phases, phonemes (sounds) will be learnt along with high frequency words and ‘tricky words’. Children will also learn to link sounds to letters and begin to form these as graphemes (written form).

Umbrellas

Please can you not send your child into school with an umbrella. We unfortunately do not have the space to accommodate them and they are health and safety hazard. Thank you.

Photograph

Starting next week (7th October), the Reception pupils will explore a 4-week R.E. topic about ‘Welcoming’ with a focus on ‘Baptism’. If your child has been baptised, we would appreciate it if you could send your child to school with a photograph from their special day. We will share the photos throughout our topic and photos will then be returned at the end of the topic (WC 11/11/19).

Thank you for your ongoing support,
Reception team

Reception Children

In your child’s book bags today (17th September), you will find a reading book, reading record and a list of words to learn.

Please can you ensure you return your child’s book bag every day.

Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday.

The list of words will be assessed, and once the teacher feels your child has learnt these, new ones will be sent home.

Thank you for your support.

Reading Bags

Please bring your reading bag in every day containing your reading book, reading record and high frequency words.

PE Kit

This current term our Reception Children require their Indoor PE Kit.  P.E. bags are to be left in school.

Water bottles – Reception Children

Your child will be issued a water bottle from school when they arrive in September.

 

Birthday Treats

If you are sending your child into school with any birthday treats please can you exclude lollipops or nuts due to health and safety concerns.  Thank you.
