St John the Baptist
Church of England Primary School

Good morning boys and girls! Miss Paul and I happened to be cooking pasta for our tea last night and it got us thinking......maybe we should travel to the moon? 

  

 

Below is some information on how you can join us using TEAMS: 

Class 1HP

Hi everyone. Just to let you know I will be changing the time of our daily phonics sessions from 09:15 to 10:10. This will take effect as on Monday 8th June. We will continue with our class read 'Marge in charge' next week, this is at the time of 14:50 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. It would be lovely to see a few more faces next week. Hope you all have a wonderful week, from Miss Paul :)

As we settle into our routines I would like to invite the children at home to join the lessons via teams. This will take place as of Wednesday 3rd June 2020 starting with daily phonics at 10:10 and a class read 14:50 on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

We aim to stick as close to times as possible. If you wish to join all you need to do is log onto teams and head for the ‘Class 1HP’ team icon. I will set the lessons (teams only allows me to set meetings on the hour or half hour but I will be joining at the time/s stated above), however I will not be inviting specific children to join. If you wish to join you simply click join meeting button. May I ask that you mute yourself and use the hands up icon if you wish to speak, I will then ask you to unmute yourself to talk. It may take some getting used to but I’m sure that with practise well get there together.  

Class 1AC

Please note the new phonics times from 29.6.20

Please join me in our daily phonics lessons at 10am on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and 9.15am on a Tuesday and Thursday. 

I will also be doing a discussion about the literacy or maths work or a story at 2.45pm on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday! 

To access this you will need Micorsoft Teams. This is available for PCs, or as apps on all smartphones and tablets. Either download the app or Google "Office 365", login to Office 365, then click on Teams.
Children will need to use their school account to log on. This is their Christian and Surname - with a dot between, and then the school's generic address..... so my log in is
paul.reid@st-john.lincs.sch.uk
The password is your child's date of birth - so the 30th April 1972 would be 300472. See if you can download and log on and then you will know that you will be ready. If it won’t log in and you have a 0 in your date of birth try removing it e.g. instead of 04 try just 4. If you still have problems with passwords etc. e-mail our parent@st-john.lincs.sch.uk and we will try and sort it out.
Please be aware that when we use TEAMS children (and adults) should be up and dressed, and you should be with an adult in somewhere like your lounge, kitchen or study. Not your bedroom. You should also be aware of what’s around and behind you - so that what everyone sees is appropriate and not anything that you wouldn’t want to be shared.

It will be so lovely to see as many children as possible. There is a 'mute' button and a 'hands up' button that we will be using as part of our TEAMS sessions. 

Any questions please do get in touch :-) 

I am loving receiving all of the hard work that boys and girls at home have been doing. I have made a display in the classroom to showcase some of your work! Please keep emailing your work so that I can add to it! 

 Daily activities:

  • Mental arithmetic’s - counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s, counting forwards and backwards, one more and one less than a given number up to 100, number bonds up to and including 20.
  • As we progress into the summer term the children would start to look at some of the alternative pronunciations and alternative spellings of graphemes. Here we have included the alternative pronunciations sound mat for Phase 5. In addition to this please see the ‘Supporting Your Child With Phonics’ PDF for help and guidance. 
  • Phonics – Here are the sound mats that include all the phonemes (sounds) and their corresponding graphemes (letters that make the sounds). In our phonics lesson we would go through these at the start of each lesson. We would then choose one grapheme and focus on reading and writing words containing that grapheme, can they write a sentence containing words that include that grapheme. Phonics Play is a great resource to use it can be accessed through your internet browser and has lots of games your child can play to help practice their phonics. You can choose to focus on a particular grapheme or revise all graphemes within a phrase. Zat Phonics Screening Check is an app that can be downloaded to your mobile device which helps children prepare for the phonics check but is also a great audible resource so children can clearly hear how a word should sound.
  • Common Exception words – practice spelling your Year One common exception words. Can you write them in a sentence?
  • This weeks spellings
  • Hand writing practice – ensure all letters sit on the line and are a consistent size (upper and lower case). Do the lower case letters have clear ascenders (letters that sit higher such as t, d, f, h, k, l and b) and descenders (letters that sit below the line such as q, y, p, f, g and j)? We have attached a handwriting practice sheet at the end of the document to help if needed. 
  • Reading – Oxford Owl are offering a free membership which gives you access to online e books - these books mirror lots of the book we would be using with your children.
