Summer Term Remote Learning

Last lap…

How strange to be writing this knowing it is the start of our last 7 week half-term together. This half term would typically be a fun time with lots of exciting events such as sports day, school trip and class parties. This I feel cannot be missed so  I have some  ideas and plans of how we can create a special  ‘Dosbarth Chirk’ final term! (So watch this space on Class Dojo)

The previous topic work based around the book ‘Superworm’ proved very popular and I would  like to THANK YOU for all the amazing  pictures and recordings I received, and so I have decided to continue the outdoor, minibeast theme.

This Term we will focus on the story ‘Spinderella’.  (Story available on Seesaw if you do not have access to the book). Again the activities in the grid are suggestions, very much a ‘Pick and Mix’ up of ideas. Examples of ideas are on Dojo.

Ruth Miskin is continuing the RWI sessions

White Rose Maths- Reception:

White Rose Maths- Year 1:

These are just a small selection of activities possible but please do not under estimate the other learning (life skills) that you are doing at home such as family walks, laying the table, cleaning and tidying up, cooking etc.

Please continue to share and send me photographs and evidence of anything you are up to on Seesaw or Dojo. It really is lovely to see the children happy and active.

Many Thanks

Stay safe & stay positive.

Miss Griffiths.

Hello and welcome back after the Easter break! I hope you managed to relax and have some quality time with family.  

Due to the current circumstances I have decided to totally change planned topics this term. I thought it would be fun for them to have a home learning project based around ‘Outdoor Learning’ (fingers crossed the beautiful weather continues!) My intention with the activities set (See document below) is to provide inspiration for you to enjoy learning together with the emphasis on ‘hands on’ multi-sensory activities.  

Having said that I would ask where possible RWI sessions are continued daily. (There is a new lesson daily which can be revisited during anytime later that day) 

Speed Sounds Set 1 - for children in Reception. 

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds 9.30 am (BST) 
  • Set 1 Word Time 9.45 am 
  • Set 1 Spelling 10.00 am 

Speed Sounds Set 2 - for children in Reception that can read Set 1 Speed Sounds and for children in Year 1 and 2. 

  • Set 2 Speed Sounds and Word Time 10.00 am 
  • Set 2 Spelling 10.15am 

There is  quite a lot to go at but you can select the right amount for you- don’t make it hard on yourselves!  I am aware that home-schooling is providing many different challenges and do not wish to make life any harder than it is. 

I cannot wait to see how you get on with these activities. Please take lots of photos and recordings and upload them to Seesaw. I will also be posting ‘Rocket’ keyword updates weekly. 

Good Luck and ‘Stay Safe’ 

Miss G.  

RWI plan

Can I go outside please?



Welcome back! I hope you have all had a super summer break and are ready to start a new adventure in class Dosbarth Chirk. I am very lucky this year to have a mixed class of both Reception and Year 1 children. They have all made an excellent start to the year and we thank you for your support so far in helping them to settle so well. During the first few weeks, our main aims will be to get to know your child and help him/her settle in to school life. Your child’s happiness is paramount to us. We want school to be a pleasurable, exciting, fun experience, a place that your child enjoys coming to, a place where he/she can relax and be him/herself.

We have lots of exciting things planned this Autumn term, our new topic  is ‘Superheroes’ which we will explore whilst carrying out all our Baseline assessments. Together we will be reading the amusing ‘Supertato’ book stories by Paul Linnet and Sue Hendra.

Please see below my Autumn reminders this term.

If parents/carers have any worries or concerns, please feel free to catch me at the end of the day. Messages can also be sent via Class Dojo.

*Remember to sign up to Class Dojo to see all of the exciting things your children are getting up to each day. The children also get to see the comments you write back which makes them feel very happy and proud.

I look forward to getting to know you and your children even more this term and wish you a very happy Autumn term with us.

Warmest Wishes

Miss Griffiths
