Year R

Term One - Getting to know you!


We welcome all of our new Butterflies, Bumblebees, Dragonflies and Blackbirds to Year R at The Oaks. We are very excited to get to know you better, and begin your child's educational journey with you. This week we will be out and about on home visits, and then the fun starts. Are you ready to play, investigate, discover, and create? The staff have been very busy over the summer, creating exciting new environments for you to explore. Where will you begin?....





Thank you to all who have signed up and got going with Tapestry over the summer. We have been able to get to know you a little already, and it really helps the children to share their home experiences with us, when they begin in the next few weeks. If you haven't already posted on Tapestry, please do have a go, we are looking out for your posts, and as soon as the children begin, we will share their first days at school with you too. smiley



Home Learning

Check out these links to websites and suggestions of things you can do at home.

This links to a Parent portal, with lots of FREE speech and language resources, advice and tips for parents working at home with their children who have SLCN. Also helpful for developing phonics skills for all our Year R children.
Oxford Owl is a great website with a wide range of ideas for phonics and maths. Take a look at their free eBook library too, where you can find books matched to your child's book band with accompanying activities.

Alistair Bryce-Clegg, who has inspired the Early Years ethos at The Oaks, has begun to gather some practical, fun activities to try at home here (there are more being added each day).

Share good quality online stories and enjoy fun Literacy and Numeracy activities here.

Many of our pupils are already enjoying the Numbots resource at home. You should have received your child's login details but please get in touch via Tapestry or email if there are any problems.

For mixed Literacy and Numeracy activities and links to other sites.

GoNoodle is a fantastic website that offers lots of free physical activities for children. There are different categories such as guided dances, relaxation and mindfulness.
