Coronavirus

16 March 2020 – updated 18 March 2020 08:34

The Department for Education and Public Health England have issued updated guidance for education settings on COVID-19 as below:

  • if you or a household family member have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • if children become unwell at school with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they will be sent home.

Symptoms

  • a high temperature 37.8 degrees or higher – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

All parents/carers should follow this advice and if necessary refer to the below links for further guidance.

When you can't go to the zoo...

Edinburgh zoo and Chester zoo have been releasing video footage of their animals and have set up live webcam streams so that children, and adults, can observe how they move and watch them go about their daily lives. This could be used as inspiration for learning jobs, like making a map of a local zoo, researching one of the featured animals, find out how zoos help rescue and breed endangered animals, drawing the animals of their choice or maybe making a model! Let your imaginations run wild, and have fun whilst you do it!

Well Being

 

We have been sent a document from the City Council to share with parents and children concerning well being. The document below might include some helpful tips for you and your child.

Activity Books

 

The activity books below have been designed specifically for children aged 5-7. These will provide you with appropriate resources to help you support your child across the range of National Curriculum subjects.

Music

 

Have a go at listening to, and making music, of your own. Watching videos of an orchestra playing and talking about which instruments they can see or hear can be a simple but effective way of helping your child to become interested in music.

 

PSHE

 

If your child is feeling anxious at this time try reading them this social story to explain the situation in child friendly terms.

Handwriting

As you are aware we have been teaching the children to form their letters correctly using the Kinetic Letters handwriting scheme. Below are the words to the song that helps them to hold their pencils correctly. They can also practise their animal poses to help strengthen their hips, shoulders and core muscles to help them build their stamina for writing.

https://kineticletters.co.uk/

 

Please use the links below to correctly form each letter of the alphabet. They have been put into 'families' based on where each letter starts and how it is formed.

Physical Education

 

At this time it is really important that we keep our bodies fit and healthy even if we can't get outside as much as we would like. We would recommend exploring Joe Wicks daily PE lesson to help challenge yourself to stay healthy over the coming months. Please use the link below to access his YouTube channel where these videos can be found.

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

We would also recommend Cosmic Yoga as the children are used to taking part in this at school.

Maths and Numeracy

 

It is a really good idea to show your child the 100 square and practise counting with them. Please use the hundred square below, or one of your choice using online resources to count forwards and backwards. Can your child count forwards and backwards from any number? For example, starting on number 11 can they count up to 20?

Once they can count with the hundred square in front of them for support, can they then do the same activity with the number square hidden?

Another activity you can do is hide a number and ask what number is hidden. Ask your child to explain how they know which number is missing. How many different ways can they explain their ideas? e.g "it is one more than x", "it is one less that x", "it is 10 more than x", "it is 10 less than x".

You will also find the Year 1 common exception words. This is a list of words that the government has provided to schools throughout the country and these are the words we aim each child in Year 1 will be able to read and write by the end of the year.

 

These can be learnt in a range of exciting ways including:

  • Making the words out of playdough
  • Writing them in a sand / rice tray
  • Writing them in wax crayon and using a colour wash over the top to reveal the word
  • Making up a rhyme to help your child remember - think of the word because, "big elephants can always understand small elephants"
  • Writing the word in bubble writing or hiding it within a picture they have drawn
  • We are sure you can think of many more!
