Hello, the weeks seem to be flying by at the moment and home schooling the ‘norm’! I have received some absolutely fantastic writing from pupils over the last 2 months. To keep the momentum going I have uploaded previous suggestions about phonics and spelling and new tips for writing to assist with tasks.
You may find some or all of the suggestions below helpful for your child.
Useful literacy based websites:
For older pupils the PDF below gives suggestions to help with Vocabulary; Sentence Openers; Connecting Words and Punctuation. At school your child may have used the acronym – VCOP!
Please get in touch if you wish to discuss any of these teaching ideas further at: email@example.com
We hope you had a good long weekend. We are looking forward to seeing all the pictures of the Time Travellers Sport’s Day. Pupils should email photos to their Home Teacher or upload to the Assignment in Teams.
The Hay Festival is taking place online this year. There are lots of great authors taking part and some fun activities to do.
Sports Day is a little bit different this year but we can still have fun and earn house pennies! Watch the clips below to see the events and find out how to take part:
We hope you had a lovely weekend and look forward to ‘seeing’ the pupils online this week. We are continuing to learn about the UK in the 1920s as part of our ‘Between the Wars’ topic. We also look forward to seeing the pupils in their uniforms on Friday. There is a special buddy activity set for then too.
Remember we are here to help support the pupils please let us know if we can help.
Good Morning, over the last couple of weeks I have given you some information about phonics and spelling. For some, the Edinburgh Sound Chart may be confusing at first and so I have created a wee Power Point with some pointers below.
I hope the SOS strategy has been successful and will be useful for your child.
This week, I am also adding a presentation to help with Phonics. Take a look and get your child to read the words each day, building up speed and fluency.
Have a great week and if you have any questions about the above email: firstname.lastname@example.org
