News & Weekly Update

Rainbow Reception:

 Hello Everyone,

week commencing 30.03.20

First and foremost, we hope that you and your families are keeping well in these challenging times.  Our routines have certainly been very different for us all over the past week with some of the children and staff in school and others learning and working from home.  Those who have been in school have coped with the changes admirably.  

The home learning packs that were sent home last week can continue to be used for activities next week.  Keep exploring with mark making through drawing, writing with different pens, pencils and chalk on paper, cardboard or chalking on the floor. Fingers are good mark making tools for sand or foam!  Explore words and letters wherever you see them and don't forget that Bug Club is available for an interactive reading experience.  We will keep adding books as they are read. PhonicsPlay is an online resource which has currently opened up free membership to all.  Look for games in Phases 1, 2 and 3 for the children to play.  All love Numberblocks and will benefit from watching any of the episodes from the first series again.  They can be found on YouTube and watching them will give ideas for exploring numbers further.  At school we are doing lots of outdoor activities including gardening and PE to make the most of this beautiful sunshine, as well as craft activities.  

 

Please remember that the most important focus for children and parents at this time is physical and emotional wellbeing.  Most of us benefit from a little structure, but you must not feel under pressure to carry out teaching activities with the children, particularly if they are resistant to them.  Remember that the Early Years curriculum is about learning through play and if you find some time to engage with your child's play then they will certainly be learning!  When the current situation is behind us, teachers across the country, including those at Eastwick, will be working to bridge any gaps that they need to, so please try not to worry on this score.

 

Mrs Thresher would like to extend her thanks to parents for understanding the need to keep children at home in line with the Government's advice that even children with EHCPs who can safely be cared for at home should not attend school until further notice.

 

We hope that you are feeling supported in the changes that we are facing and if there is anything further that we can do, please get in touch.

 

Take care and very best wishes

Rainbow Year 1:

Dear Parents,

week commencing 30.03.20

Those children who have attended school this week have had lots of fun approaching learning through play and outdoor activities. The children have enjoyed developing their friendships with the children from RR who also attended school.  I would like to thank you all as parents, for your support and understanding in keeping your children at home over the coming weeks. This will help us all to stay as well and safe as possible. I will miss the children.

Please remember that the most important focus for children and parents at this time is physical and emotional wellbeing.  Most of us benefit from a little structure, but you must not feel under pressure to carry out teaching activities with the children, particularly if they are resistant to them.  There is great value in learning through play and following your child's interests and joining in with their play will still result in their learning. When the current situation is behind us, teachers across the country, including those at Eastwick, will be working to bridge any gaps that they need to, so please try not to worry about this.

Mrs Thresher would like to extend her thanks to parents for understanding the need to keep children at home in line with the Government's advice that even children with EHCPs who can safely be cared for at home should not attend school until further notice.

Please remember that you can contact me via email if you need any support with your child during this time. I will endeavour to help you all I can.

Rainbow Year 2:

 Dear all,

I have been thinking of you all over the week. I hope you are all well and enjoying the lovely sunny weather! I always think that the sunshine helps tricky days seem less tricky. 

Please remember that the most important focus for children and parents at this time is physical and emotional wellbeing.  Most of us benefit from a little structure, but you must not feel under pressure to carry out teaching activities with the children, particularly if they are resistant to them.  Learning comes in many guises and if you find some time to engage with your child's play then they will certainly be learning! If you are baking, let them weigh out the ingredients.  What's a little mess between friends? If there is an opportunity to measure, show them how to do this properly, starting from zero. I have been enjoying or should I say trying out the Joe Wicks PE sessions with my daughter; great fun! We have also made Box Hill our personal challenge. WE are trying to get to the top in the quickest time possible. Talking about time, ask your child what the time is (perhaps sticking to the easier times to begin with). When the current situation is behind us, teachers across the country, including those at Eastwick, will be working to bridge any gaps that they need to, so please try not to worry on this score.

Mrs Thresher would like to extend her thanks to parents for understanding the need to keep children at home in line with the Government's advice that even children with EHCPs who can safely be cared for at home should not attend school until further notice.

 

I will be in touch again, very soon.

Until then, take care.
