Timetable

This is an example of our weekly timetable:

Planning

Look at what we are learning this half term.

 

Spend a morning with us in Reception and see how much we learn!

Look at the progress we have made in our review writing from September to March:

 

We are brilliant mathematicians and learn lots during our maths lessons and in provision time:

The children love our provision and have a lot of fun learning through play!

 

We have a rich learning environment and enhance the areas with books, vocabulary and challenges.

 

   

Each term we aim to enhance the children’s learning with trips, visits and activities from the ’50 Things to do Before You’re 5′ guidance. Have a look what we have planned for the year!

50 Things to do before you’re 5 – Home Learning activities

Listed below are all 50 home learning activities which you may like to complete together at home. You can complete them in any order and upload your photographs to tapestry.

Don’t forget to look in our homework section for the activities we have chosen for this half term.

Things to Remember

PE Kit:

Please wear your PE kit to school on Wednesday’s and ensure earrings are taken out on this day.  You no longer need to bring your PE kit in a bag. You can come to school in your PE kit and wear it throughout the day.

Our school PE kit is as follows:

  • Navy polo shirt with optional logo
  • Black shorts
  • Suitable trainers (Velcro if possible)

In colder months you can wear alternatives to keep you warm:

  • Black / blue leggings or joggers
  • Black / blue hoodie or jacket

 

Homework

Children are expected to bring their planners back daily so books can be changed throughout the week and we ask that children read at least 3 times per week. We will set additional homework where we feel appropriate.  Children will be likely to bring home key words, phonics or handwriting activities in addition to some creative topic activities.

Spring 1- 50 Things Homework Challenges

 

School Dinners

If you are are wanting a school dinner, you can order them from the school grid app. You can choose this for your child at home together or your child can choose their own dinner each morning when they arrive at school. All Reception aged children are entitled to Free School Dinners but if you prefer to provide a packed lunch then we ask that you ensure that it is a healthy and balanced lunch. Follow our guide below to help you with ideas for your child’s lunch.

 

Reading at Fairburn View Primary School

Phonics

Your child will learn to read following the ‘Sounds Write’ Programme. This programme is designed to support the rigorous and systematic approach to teaching synthetic phonics.  Our caring teaching staff plan exciting lessons to meet the needs of all individual children.

Here is a link to the Sounds Write website. What is Sounds-Write? – Sounds-Write

Watch the video in this link to listen to how we say the sounds.

 

Reading

There is a focus on reading across school and there is huge benefits to children reading at home. As part of school policy, we ask for children to read at least 3x at home and this is signed by a parent. You can help your children by hearing them read, but also checking their comprehension. Ask the questions about what they have just read, what they think will happen next and explain what they think of the books they are reading. It is important for children to read a range of texts as this makes them well rounded excellent readers.

Inside school, children have weekly guided reading sessions in which they have opportunity to have adult based and independent reading activities.

We appreciate your help and support in the matter.

 

Writing at Fairburn View Primary School

Developmental Progression of Writing

All children work through the various stages of writing at their own pace.

See the chart below for the development of writing through the early years and beyond.

As we learn more sounds throughout the school year, the spelling of words may change. For example, ‘with’. Until we have learnt the ‘th’ sound, children may spell it ‘wiv’.

The children will learn to use their phonics to write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly, and others are phonetically plausible.

Examples of phonetically plausible sentences:

  • The gijbred man is cwic. (The gingerbread man is quick)
  • I sii a pan. (I see a pan)
  • We are at scol. (We are at school)

 

 

The Building Blocks of Writing

If the lower levels are missing then the rest of the tower will come crashing down.

Parent Partnerships

We welcome any opportunities for parents to share their skills and knowledge.
Please listen to your child read at home every day and record this in your child’s planner.

We would like to see all your WOW moments at home recorded on the tapestry app for us to share with the children in class.

Focus Children

We are currently trialing observing 5 or 6 focus children each week of this term  The week before a child is one of our focus children, they will bring home a letter explaining this. We want you to see this as a positive way of contributing your knowledge of your child, along with a few photographs.  Each child will be a focus child this term, so please look out for your letter. During each child’s focus week they will noticeably have more observations in their journals on which quality interactions and learning experiences are recorded.

Thank you for your support.
