Important Message to Genbu-Kai Head Instructors - Genbu-Kai NewsSCHOOL CLOSURE Important Message to Genbu-Kai Head Instructors - Genbu-Kai News

Hello Parents, Carers and Children,

We hope you had a lovely Christmas break. We are sorry that we can't see you in the classroom for a little while, but we are doing all that we can to keep you and your families safe. 

Due to the latest Government announcement, we will be delivering daily remote learning to ensure that all our children continue to be educated. If you need a second copy of any passwords, please email me urgently, as you will need these daily!

Each day, work will be set on your child's class webpage with clear guidance on how to complete each task.  Each task will be listed/ on a powerpoint and is expected to be completed daily. Some tasks will be completed online through our learning platforms; whereas others may be paper based - in these cases you can send a photograph of work to your teacher's class email who will then respond with feedback.

Each new day's tasks will be dated and listed at the top of the web page in red.

Thank-you for your patience during these challenging times. Both Mrs Noble and I can honestly say that you are one of the kindest, most hard-working and resilient group of children we have ever had the pleasure of working with. We thank-you for this and we look forward to seeing what you can achieve throughout this next chapter of your first year at school. We will get through this together! :)

Optional Get Set 4 PE Challenge

Can you complete the challenge by the 28th February 2021?

Inspired by Children's Mental Health Week ( 1st-7th February), Get Set 4 PE are sharing 'one piece at a time'. They are hoping that this mindful practice will bring awareness to all of the things that help to make us smile so that we can do them more often. If you complete the challenge send a photo of your finished puzzle to me. I hope you have lots of fun completing the challenges. 

Life is a giant puzzle.
Every day we need
to piece together all of
the things that help to
make us smile.

Phonics, Maths and Religion

Videos are saved as both an mp4 file and a wmv file, so at least one of them should hopefully work on both android and apple devices. Please email me if you have any issues! It may take a few minutes to download at first. Both videos are exactly the same so you only need to be able to open one of them. :) 

Please remember to also log into Spelling Shed and Numbots for at least 10 minutes to play the games today if you can.

NOTE: This week we will be doing some activities online to help us celebrate world book day. On Friday 5th, you can dress up for WBD in our zoom if you wish! (This is for children both in school and at home). Please see letter towards the top of this page for more details.

PE - PE will take place on WEDNESDAYS (on a two week rota) Please ensure your child has the correct indoor and outdoor PE kit in school at all times. All children also have daily access to our outdoor provision.

Outdoor learning - We love outdoor learning in Reception! Please ensure your child has a pair of wellies to keep in school all year. Please make sure they have their name inside them.

Reading Books -
Reading books (along with key words, sounds and numbers) will be sent home every Monday, to be returned on Friday please. Discussing pictures is a vital part of a child's development when they first start school, so please use the advice at the back of each book to question your child about their reading.

Oxford Owl is a fantastic site, on which you can access lots of reading books, just like the ones we send home from school. They are all colour banded, just like the ones we have in school, so the children will be familiar with them.

Learning Photographs Below...

We have been enjoying making lots of new friends and getting to know our new teachers. We have really enjoyed exploring all of the continuous provision areas!

Religion - Sign of the Cross and Class Saint

We have been learning the sign of the cross and joining our hands to say prayers. We have started to learn some of our special school prayers. We have really enjoyed talking about Jesus, Mary and our class saint - Saint Peter. We made fish for a special display to help us talk about St Peter.

Phonics and Writing 

This week, we started phase 2 phonics. We have a phonics session every day and are quickly learning lots of new sounds. We have enjoyed writing these new sounds in lots of areas. We have also been working hard every day to learn how to write our names. Some of us are even writing our surnames now!

Art - Painting Self Portraits

In religion, we talked about how God made us all different but equal. We used a mirror to look at all of our facial features and carefully mixed the correct colours to paint our self portraits.

Science - Understanding Autumn

 We have been learning about the four different seasons. We have focussed specifically on the current season: Autumn. During Forest School, we had a fabulous time searching for colourful leaves and other signs of Autumn! We have also been cutting and sticking, leaf rubbing and playing in our continuous provision areas to extend our learning even further.

Maths - Comparative Language

We have been doing lots of practical learning to help us understand heavier/lighter, bigger/smaller, longer/shorter. We had a fabulous time in Forest School, using sticks and other natural materials to develop our learning. We also had a go at building different and equal sized towers in the construction areas.

Religion - Baptism

We have been talking about welcome, and how we welcome a new baby into God’s family in the Catholic Church. We watched a baptism video, then had a go at re-creating a baptism with our friends. We talked all about the symbols of baptism, such as the white garment, candle, cross, font and holy water. We practised saying “I baptise you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit” as we made the sign of the cross.

Science / Understanding the World

 We read the story “How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?” This inspired use to use three different sized pumpkins of our own to investigate how many seeds really are in a pumpkin! We had a fabulous time and came up with some wonderful adjectives to describe the inside of the pumpkin. Afterwards, we planted the seeds in our little EYFS garden, in the hope of growing our own pumpkins!

History / Understanding the World 

We have been learning all about Guy Fawkes and the history of bonfire night. To celebrate, we tasted toffee apples and made our own sparklers with breadsticks, chocolate and sprinkles...and then ate them!

Maths - Shape

 We have been learning all about shape names and their properties in lots of practical ways.

Religion / UTW

We have been learning about other religions. We have been learning about Diwali: The Festival of Lights. We made Diwali lamps.

RE / History/ UTW  - Remembrance
We have been learning about All Saints and All Souls. We held a two minutes silence on the 11th November and made pictures of poppies in lots of different ways. We even wrote our own remembrance prayer book for our class display.

Religion - Judaism

 We have been learning about Judaism. We looked at a real menorah candle and had a go at replicating it through drawing, painting,  cutting and sticking. We listened to lots of stories, such as “Sadie’s Marvellous Menorah.”

Computing - Coding

 We used bee bots this week to learn some simple coding! 

Science - Freezing and Melting

We have been reading “Supertato” as our class text. Evil Pea came into our classroom and froze the poor carrots in ice! We had to use our science skills to predict which would be the most effective way to melt the ice, then we carried out our investigation to find out the results. We managed to melt the ice, free the carrots and reveal the hidden message!

Geography / UTW

 Continuing with our Supertato text, we have been learning about some unfamiliar fruit / vegetables. We used our senses to explore them, including tasting them! We voted for our most and least favourite. We looked at a globe and world map and used this to place the foods on the country where they are most commonly grown. We enjoyed asking questions about how long it would take to travel to each of the countries and finding England on the map.

EYFS NATIVITY 2020

This year, our wonderful Reception Class have worked really hard on performing the nativity for you. We are so excited to share it with you all! We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we have enjoyed preparing it!
