Term 5 learning

Dear Shooting Stars Parents,

This term you will find on Tapestry (in the documents section) or the school website (drop down tag; Covid 19/Shooting Stars/ Term 5) the weekly learning plans.  I expect Reception children to pick and do one activity from each block, each day.  At the end of the day, please upload the learning your child has taken part in to their Tapestry account so as I can track their learning, assess it against the expectations set out in the EYFS and provide any feedback and next steps required.  Any problems, please get in touch; I will be available by email all day, every day.

As we are moving into Term five and continue with home learning, it is expected that every child will take part in the learning program set to ensure they do not fall behind in their educational journey and are ready to continue learning when we do return to school. However, I do appreciate that the children at this age require lots of adult support so if you need to juggle around the time and days in which your child does their school work then that is no problem.

For nursery children - should you wish to follow a program of learning you should also be able to access the learning set out in the planned activities but you may need to simplify them to meet your child’s individual level.

The Shooting Stars team will continue to upload a daily story time; it is wonderful to read your children’s comments on these so please keep commenting.

As always, I would love to see any additional work or activities that your child has completed and please keep posting the art and cakes and play activities that your child is enjoying as these are also crucial development activities that form the expectations in the EYFS, also I love to see them :)

Keep up the good work Shooting Stars and remember I am here to support you all.

Kind regards

Sandra Meehan
