Dear Parent/Carers,

Teachers and support staff have been working incredibly hard to make the switch from face-to-face teaching to remote teaching as smooth as possible to minimise the impact on your child’s learning. We thank our parents and families for the fantastic support you are providing at home to engage with daily remote learning. Our attendance in many classes is excellent – thank you for working in partnership with us to achieve this.

Reading is a vitally important part of your child’s education, which we have prioritised in the remote learning timetable for your child as outlined below:

Year Group / Phase Reading provision
EYFS

·         Daily story recorded on Tapestry – please access this as many as 5 times a day to allow your child to become familiar with the story and mirror practice in school.

·         Daily phonics recorded on Tapestry (blending for reading)

KS1

·         Phonics

·         Daily guided reading

·         Book-led English curriculum

·         Class story at the end of English

KS2

·         Daily shared reading

·         Class Novel – English

·         DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) during offline timetable

·         After-school and off-line reading interventions

 

Reading at home with an adult or independently for pleasure is also essential to your child’s academic success in all subjects and therefore we encourage you to support daily reading at home for your child.

1:1 Reading Books

During this lockdown period, we want to offer our pupils access to a weekly home reading book as they would normally have when attending school. The teaching team in your child’s class will have asked you during this week’s welfare call whether you would like to take up this offer. Providing pupils with a home reader book will ensure he/she is accessing a text that is targeted at their reading ability.

We have set up the following system for the return and collection of home reader books to and from school with all social distancing and hygiene routines followed. Each year group will have a specified day to collect their new home reader book and return their current book. This is consistent with the collection for afternoon work packs for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

As you can appreciate it takes some organisation to ensure that books can be quarantined for a minimum of 48 hours after drop-off. Parents are expected to come on the allocated collection day to minimise the number of people coming to the school office and comply with lockdown rules. We can make exceptions where you have children in different year groups and then ask that you come on one of the allocated collection days for your children.

We are setting up a login for each class for the Oxford Owl E-book Library which offers some fantastic reads for our pupils. Your child will be given their username and password next week by the class teacher and teaching assistant as well as guidance in an online lesson on how to navigate the site. We are mindful of not unduly increasing screen time and therefore remind parents to ensure this is balanced with physical reading books.

Oak National Academy are also offering free access to a Virtual School Library in partnership with the National Literacy Trust. The reading and writing activities available link to a different popular author or illustrator each week.  See link: https://library.thenational.academy/
