In Tiger class we believe that learning should be engaging, enjoyable and challenging with problem solving, real life experiences and awe and wonder for all learners. We feel it is important to instil confidence and independence in all children, as well as helping them to achieve the best they can.
All new reading books and reading diaries will be sent home on a MONDAY.
All books and diaries need to be returned to school on a FRIDAY. This will enable us to put all the books in a box for 72 hours to quarantine before sending them home with a different child. All classes have access to their own set of reading books and these will not be shared across bubbles.
If your child is absent from school or forgets to bring their book bag on a Friday then their books will not be changed until the following week. In this instance, you can access a variety of free online reading books at your child’s specified level on the Oxford Owl website:
Your child’s colour book band level will be found on a sticker inside their diary.
Ed Shed is a website where Tigers can practise their learning with weekly home learning tasks. You can find out more if you scroll a little further down this page. Log in details can be found inside their diary.
Practise your times tables a little every day at home. We have a times tables test every FRIDAY. You can find out more if you scroll a little further down this page.
Learning spellings at home would be helpful. Again, little and often is best. Again, you can find out more if you scroll a little further down this page.
Our PE days are TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY. Please wear your PE kit to school. PE will take place outside so make sure you're wearing jogging bottoms and a hoodie to keep out the cold!
Finally, RE is an integral part of our curriculum and there are regular opportunities for children to develop their understanding and ask questions in a safe and supportive environment. Children are encouraged to value the awe and wonder of the world, respect the views and opinions of others and see how the word of God can help them in their thoughts and daily lives.
This is the home learning we would ask children to do regularly throughout the week. Information about home learning during a period of self-isolation can be found on Tigers 'Learning at Home' page.
If you'd like to find out what is behind the rest of the doors, here is the online advent calendar we have been looking at in class. I wonder which flags you will recognise?
As part of their Design Technology learning, Tiger Class followed a brief to design and make bird feeders. The brief explained that their product had to be suitable for the birds usually found in the Forest School area. After researching the birds they would be feeding, the children designed and made their feeders. These now hang near the Forest School area so the children can see them through the window every time they go to wash their hands. To help with bird identification, the children also designed a set of posters to be placed near the viewing area so they could recognise the birds attracted to their feeders.
