During this year, we know that many Reception children may have to isolate for two weeks and spend time away from their class so we are continuing to provide online learning for those that need it, when they need it. We learned a lot about online learning in the summer term and about what works well for our parents and the children.

 

We will continue to use some learning platforms, but we are also posting lots of learning on our website to make it more accessible. The school will provide you with a Home Learning Pack.

Our aim is to make this as accessible to parents and families as possible.

While you are at home, you will also get regular calls from a member of your class team so that we can work together to support your child while they are learning at home.

 

Challenge:  

http://lansburylawrence.towerhamlets.sch.uk/weekly-challenge-assembly-2-geography/ 

Here is our weekly challenge for all children in our school. We look forward to Reception’s participation!  

 

We have introduced a new timetable; this is only a suggested time and understand families need to work at times which are best for them. 

We have introduced a device free Friday afternoon; you and your child can find some activities in your packs that you can use instead of using devices.

We will be uploading daily the tasks to be completed and then email your completed work to either dmills@lansbury.net (Hamilton class) or abbeu@lansbury.net (Shireen Class). Thank you and happy learning! – Mr Mills and Miss Uter

Every child should read every day, whether at home or at school and it’s important to plan this in. Many children enjoy reading in their beds before they fall asleep or perhaps they get up early and enjoy reading then. While they are unable to attend school, it’s important that they continue to read every day and find time to do a bit extra. Perhaps straight after breakfast, or before they eat their lunch.

Reading Eggs

Children can also practice their sounds and phonics independently using a Reading Eggs Account. We’ve bought one for every child in Year 1. Be warned! Reading Eggs has lots of games. The games are fun and can be helpful, but make sure your child is doing the lessons first! It’s also very important that you don’t help your child with their test at the end of each map, as that decides whether or not they are ready to move on.
