Myton Park Zoom Protocols
In order to comply with school procedures, we ask you to abide by the following protocols:
1) An adult must be in the same room as the child during the session.
2) This session is for the child’s learning; if an adult needs to contact the teacher about any issues, this must be done at a different time.
3) We encourage you to be available for the session. If there are exceptional circumstances and you are unable to make the time set, you must let the class teacher know in advance via email.
4) The topic of conversation will be education based. Please discuss with your child about appropriate/ inappropriate topics. If your child mentions watching something or playing a game not age appropriate, we will have to explain this to them.
5) Suitable clothing must be worn by the child during the session, even on a hot day.
6) Sessions may be recorded for safeguarding purposes.
7) Virtual backgrounds can be used at home.

Year 1

Good morning

As part of tomorrow’s planned learning Year 1 have a P.E. session timetabled for the afternoon. To minimise items brought in to school could they come in to school in their P.E. kit if they are attending school tomorrow. We would like them to come in their plain navy joggers, white P.E. t-shirt and zip up navy P.E. top. We understand that during the time school was closed some items may have been mislaid or out grown so please substitute any items for similar home clothes if needed. For example a normal home tshirt rather than their plain white school P.E. tshirt. On their feet they can wear plimsols or preferably trainers. If you have any problems organising this please speak to the member of staff on the door in the morning.

Thank you for your continued support and take care.

Year 1 Lexia

We have looked at the information on Lexia and have noticed some children are accessing activities on levels much ahead of their year group. By the start of Year 2 children would usually be accessing activities from Level 6. By completing activities much harder than these they may be coming across concepts we haven’t taught at school. Next time your child logs on you may notice their level has changed. Please encourage them to continue to access the activities given and this extra practise will help their reading to be even better!

Thank you for your continued support.

Year 1 – P.E.

Good evening,

As part of tomorrow’s planned learning Year 1 have a P.E. session timetabled for the afternoon.

Maths – 1.6.20 Counting in 10’s

We have attached the maths questions that the children will be working through at school on Monday 1st June. We usually talk through one question at a time and then the children would either complete it individually or with their talking partner. We would then come back together as class to talk about our answers and how we got to that answer.

We focus on varied fluency, problem solving and reasoning so you will find that we cover a mix of these during one lesson. The children would usually have maths equipment to help them find the answers (if they need it) so they can use objects, number lines etc at home.

We hope the activities are clear and easy to follow, please let us know if you need any help. We are still trying to figure this new way of learning out for ourselves so please bare with us and let us know if things aren’t working or if you find something helpful/useful.

Maths 1.6.20

Thanks again for your continued support especially strange time.

Year 1 – Home learning information/Page of the Week

Hi all,

We hope you’ve had a lovely half term and have been out in the sunshine as much as possible! 🙂

 

From tomorrow (1st June) some children will be returning to school, if you are then we are very excited to see you but if you’re not then don’t worry because we will still be here to set home learning, to see your amazing work and to like and comment on it.

As we will be going back to school and planning activities for the children that are in school then we won’t be accessing Seesaw as often as we have been but we will still make sure that we see your work and comment as much as we can and when we can. We are going to adapt the learning and activities that are being used in school for the children to access at home so that all of the children will still be getting the same activities and opportunities of learning.

Each week we will set English, Maths and foundation activities and we will still send home the spelling list. We won’t be recording the spelling test but if possible please can you do the test at home and still let us know your child’s score. The way that we structure the spelling test is to say the word twice, then say it in a sentence and then say the word for the third time. We are going to change our page of the day to page of the week for those children that still enjoy answering the questions and reading the jokes.

If you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to contact one of us via Seesaw or our email addresses:

Thank you for your continued support.

Take care
