Monday 23rd March 2020
Hello Year 1, I hope you are well.
Welcome to our class page. Here are some links to help you with your learning for the next couple of days. Please make sure you visit the page on Wednesday to find out about Showbie and to see what work you have been set.
Remember to read every day. I think it would also be a really good idea if you started to keep a diary too – we are going through a very interesting time and in the future people would learn lots about history by reading about your lives!
Take care and be kind,
RWI Live Lessons
Daily Lessons on YouTube and Facebook
Learning to read at home with Read Write Inc. Phonics during School Closure
Daily lessons for children
RWI are excited to announce that from Monday 23rd March they are scheduling Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons on Facebook and YouTube for children to watch at home.
They will release three short Speed Sound lessons with one of their trainers every day for the next two weeks.
The films will only be available at the times below:
- Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12:30pm
- Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1:00pm
- Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1:30pm
Please note: the films are streamed live and won’t be available at other times.
They will also release a film of a teacher reading a poem for Reception and Year 1 children to join in with at 2:00pm every day.
The poems will be available to watch again and again on YouTube.
A great opportunity for children to learn these by heart!
Parents can sign up to either their Facebook page or their YouTube channel.
Films for Parents
Films for parents to help their child learn to read at home with Read Write Inc. Phonics are available on their website and YouTube channel.
The YouTube channel will be redesigned shortly to help parents find the films easily.
They will add a parent film to Facebook every day.
If you would like to contact your child’s teacher about their learning please email Year1@donnington.brent.sch.uk
Staff will check emails during the school day (8:45-3:30) and will respond when it is possible for them to do so.
If staff themselves are unwell or looking after their own children, they may not be in a position to respond.
Despite school being closed, we are still committed to doing all we can to support you.
If you have any personal challenges or concerns about your child’s safety or well-being, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (emails will be checked within school normal working hours).
