Welcome to Reception Class RH
Our topic this half term is ‘We’re Going on a Journey’. We will be travelling into space with the books Whatever Next by Jill Murphy and The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers; and going on a Bear Hunt with Michael Rosen in We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. We will be exploring the different environments in the stories and finding out a bit more about Space and Bears!
In Phonics we are following the Letters & Sounds scheme and will be building on the single sounds we learnt in Phase 2, and learning the Phase 3 digraphs (two letters that make one sound) as well as learning some new 'tricky words'. In Maths we will be following the White Rose Maths scheme, developing a deeper knowledge of numbers to 10 and learning about shapes and measure.
We are very sorry that we will not be seeing most of you this half term due to the lockdown, we will really miss you all! Head over to DBPrimary where you will find all our Home Learning Activities, messages and information.
Take care and stay safe
Mrs McIntosh & Mrs Rusz
Home Learning During Lockdown
See below for details of our remote learning arrangements and how to access our remote learning platform DBPrimary
We will be providing remote learning for our pupils through the DB Primary platform. This can be accessed at: hogarth.essex.dbprimary.com
The children will be required to use the username and password that was issued to them as part of their home learning pack at the end of the autumn term.
It is important that children keep their username and password safe and that they do not share it with friends or family.
Once your child has logged into DB Primary they will be able to see the homepage for their class and any tasks their teacher has set for them. It is an expectation that these tasks are completed so that every child can continue to make progress with their learning.
As a school, we will monitor the work that the children do. Although we understand how difficult the current circumstances are, it is important that every child has a daily maths, English (phonics) and topic lesson. Where possible, please follow the timetable that has been set out on DB Primary so that our children learning from home receive the same provision as those who have been offered a full-time school place (following Government Guidance).
As part of the DB Primary platform, your child will be able to use a forum to keep in touch with their friends and teachers. Please discuss the safety implications of this with your child:
As a school, our staff are working collaboratively and we have organised for key members of staff to be our administrative support. Should you have any queries or concerns, please contact:
Reception- Mrs McIntosh- EYFS@hogarth.essex.sch.uk
Year 1- Mrs Wright- email@example.com
Year 2 and Year 3 – Miss Mzoumi- firstname.lastname@example.org
Years 4, 5 and 6- Mrs Sullivan- email@example.com
We hope that having access to DBPrimary will be a helpful way in which you can support your child at home and that children can begin to take responsibility for furthering their own learning independently.
