Easter Resource From Manchester Diocese - The Childrens Changing Places group, which is linked to the Diocese, has asked every school to share this resource with their families. There are some nice Easter activities included. However, a number of the suggestions require specific resources that families might not have access to, so please do not feel any pressure to use it or to complete all the activities! It might just give you some nice ideas of things to do as a family during what would have been the official Easter break.

Internet Links

Below are internet links (in red font) to sites that you may find useful generally or that may be referenced in some of the daily activities.

Links will be in alphabetical order to try to make it a bit easier to find them.

I will try to add to these links as we go along but in the meantime, if you find or know of any other sites that you think would be good to share with the class please contact me via the class e mail and I will add them on to here.

I have now rearranged these links slightly and added a separate subheading underneath for physical activity internet links (30.3.20).

Actiphons - https://actiphons.com/  Online phonics teaching site. I have to admit I do not know much about this but I do know another school in our cluster uses it instead of Phonics Play. If it is possible to access, it could be another avenue to explore if the Phonics Play site gets too busy and it might have ideas and resources to supplement any other phonics activities that I set.

Additional Maths Games Suggestions - Additional Links to Interactive Maths Games.

BBC Schools - Bitesize   https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/primary  Although this mentions KS1 and KS2, Reception children will be able to access some of the learning and resources.

BBC - CBeebies  https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies  We often use this for Alphablocks video's/activities and for Numtums. Once on the homepage if you just type those words into the search section it will bring them up for you. 

Numberjacks   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWKuiktSh-V3E4ysPU0VC3Q  On here you can find Numberjacks videos that we sometimes use in class. 

Phonics Play  https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/    This will be referenced a lot when I talk about phonics and suggest phonics interactive games. This is usually a subscription site but they are now providing a free parent login - Username: march20   Password: home

Purple Mash/Mini Mash     https://www.purplemash.com/sch/stsaviour  This is used throughout school. Your child's individual login has been sent home. The Reception part of Purple Mash is called 'Mini Mash'. It has a range of activities on supporting things like literacy, maths, music, art and obviously computing. Click on the following green link to download a parent guide.  Purple Mash Parent Guide

TopMarks  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/   Website that contains a range of interactive games, included our well used 'gingerbread man' game.

If the link does not work you can go onto YouTube and put 'cosmic yoga' into the search. Apparently I have heard you can choose a theme and it links a story with yoga. Just had a quick look and it looks like fun.

Phonics Teaching

In Reception we teach phonics in ability groups. We use 'Phonics Play' to deliver the governments 'Letters and Sounds' programme. Phonics play provides planning, online games and printable resources. During this period of closure I appreciate that it will be extremely difficult to deliver the programme as we would in school due to resources available etc...

It will also be difficult to direct specific planning/learning as it is monitored weekly. We often deliver a weeks worth of plans and then the following week recover/revise aspects that children found hard the previous week. 

What I plan to do is, at the start of each week, post a link to the schools adapted phonic play plans that your child would have been likely to be following. You can then have a look and if possible practice some of the suggested activities, using support from the phonics play website. The link to this website is in the 'Internet Links' section on this page. Your child should know their group name. (They came up with their own phonics group names!) However, I will also reference the literacy group name as this was sent home before the closure.

In addition though, on the daily overviews I will suggest an interactive phonic game or  a practical activity that can be carried out. This will mean that even if your child is unable to follow the specific weekly phonics overviews, they will still be receiving daily phonic practice and support to maintain progress within this important aspect of learning.
