We're All Mad Here: Using Lucidchart to Understand the Madness of Wonderland|  Lucidchart Blog

 

May I extend a very warm welcome to Lewis Carroll's class page and welcome back to school after what has been a very strange year.

 I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with you and your child this academic year. I am sure that the journey we will make together will be an exciting and rewarding one, packed full of rich learning opportunities and fun! We hope you find the information on this page useful. We look forward to working in partnership with parents and carers this year, and watching your children grow and flourish through their learning experiences.

 

 

Parents & Carers 

As you are aware, many protocols have changed throughout school, including limited face-to-face contact. Please, please, please do not hesitate to email or phone regarding any worries or queries you have – however big or small. You may not be able to have a ‘quick’ chat on the playground any longer but we are here and will endeavour to keep communication and our partnership between home and school strong. I am also contactable via Twitter (if you have small queries.) I am an avid user of twitter, as I love the parents and carers to see the achievements, experiences and opportunities we have in class. So please follow us for regular updates, reminders and pictures of what your children are working on, and how well they are doing.

Weekly Routines

 

Our Recovery Curriculum during Covid-19 | themanorcofeprimary

 

Our Recovery Curriculum 

When the children return the focus of our learning will be our R – Curriculum which is centred around reconnecting, recapturing, recuperating, reviving and resuming. In September, our R-Curriculum will put the children’s wellbeing and transition back to school at the heart of our activities and learning. We will be investing time to build relationships once again with staff and peers, listening to children’s experiences, being transparent about the steps we need to take to transition back to school, relearning the skills required to learn in school and developing the confidence needed to thrive. We will also be giving our children the space and time to rediscover themselves and give them a voice and the opportunity to be heard and the support to understand their own emotions about the changes that have occurred and their return to school.

This R Curriculum will run alongside a focus on foundation subjects - reading, writing and maths. The children’s learning under our R curriculum will focus on building small steps to develop the stamina to develop enjoyment for reading and writing whilst focusing on key skills in Mathematics.

 

 

 

 

 

Reading

Please ensure your child’s book bag, reading record and reading books are in school every day. Children are expected to read regularly, reading will be checked on a weekly basis.

It is imperative that reading is recorded in reading records so that we can celebrate your child's achievements. 

We will change reading books every Thursday.

In the first week, children will be provided with logins to a fantastic website/app called Timestable Rockstars. Each week you will be set Times Tables to learn and you will go on a variety of games to learn these timetables whilst ranking on a whole class leaderboard! Children are ranked on how much they interact with the game and earn coins to purchase new rockstar outfits! The app is fantastic and I cannot encourage you enough to suppot your child in engaging with this game. We have seen remarkable leaps in the children's Times Table knowledge when they use this along with our Times Table sessions within school.
