I hope that you are all keeping safe by staying inside and finding plenty to do. Remember, what I said about your learning, little and often is better than nothing for 2 weeks and then 1 full day. However, it is important to remember, now more than ever, that learning happens in many different ways it is not all about sitting down working through the tasks on this page or a workbook.
A normal school day in Reception does involve us teaching english, maths, phonics, topic etc and spending a little bit of time each day doing these will help your child continue to learn, develop and retain knowledge. However, the children also spend much of their time in the role play, small world, construction, craft area, painting, play dough, threading, colouring and sand and water. We sing, share stories, talk, make up games and just enjoy learning through play. Take the opportunity in these strange times to bake, play board games, do jigsaws, ride your bike, tell the time, learn to tie your shoe laces, learn how to skip, learn new songs, learn how to take a photograph, learn how to make a sandwich or prepare your own breakfast . Take advantage of these strange times and think creatively!!!
If you want to share any of the fantastic things you have been doing then you can email me at Reception@st-annes.notts.sch.uk or you can continue to upload what you have been doing to your Tapestry account.
I'm missing you all already but it is more important that we are keeping ourselves safe and healthy.
