Coots Class is for our Reception children. The class teachers are Mrs Sims and Mrs Beavis (On maternity Leave from February 2021), and we are lucky enough to be supported by Mrs Watson in the mornings and Mrs Sultana in the afternoons.
Spring Term One – Home and School Learning
In Coots, the beginning of spring term has seen many of us learning from home. Mrs Sims, Mrs Beavis and Mrs Watson have used tapestry and zoom to keep in touch with us at home and in school.
Our teachers have uploaded daily videos of phonics, maths, stories and songs onto tapestry for us to use at home and in school.
We have all learnt our phase two sounds and many of us have learnt our phase three sounds too. We are now beginning to apply these sounds when reading and writing. We have also been practising our tricky words – I, no, go, to, the, he, she, we, me, be, you, are, her, was, they and my. We have had access to Book bug where we are able to read decodable books linked to our phonics.
In maths, we have focused on lots of different areas. We have looked at lines of symmetry, odd and even numbers, telling the time, doubles and halves, 2D and 3D shapes and measurement (length, height and weight). Both at home and school, we have completed formal and practical activities to help us gain an understanding of these areas. We have had access to doodlemaths. Many of us have completed the daily five challenges.
We have also had activities focused on stories such as; Mrs Beavis read us the story Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose and got us to make some yummy chocolate mousse. Mrs Sims has also read us stories and got us to think about the core values in them. Mrs Watson has sung us some songs like The Manners Song linked to the story Pardon, said the Giraffe.
Also, we have enjoyed other activities with our families at home and friends in school such as walks, PE challenges, painting, cooking, board games and many more.
Here are some photos of us learning in different ways at home and in school.
