A huge thank you to everyone who continues to send in work to the class teachers. It is great to see the super things everyone is involved in.
We ask for work so we can support and suggest things children could improve on but it is also our way of ensuring all our families are okay. We are monitoring the children who send in work and Mrs Meek is following up those families who haven't sent in work or haven't made contact with their teachers.
Mrs Meek will make calls, leave voice messages and send emails in an attempt to speak with families. Failure to return these calls / emails could lead to a welfare check carried out by Mr Ridlinton and if no contact continues to be made we will call 101 to carry out a safe and welfare check by the Police. Please return any messages Mrs Meek has left over the past few days.
Thank you everyone.
There are 20 expeditions along the way, can you conquer them all? Which ones will you find easy? Which will introduce you to new experiences? Which will challenge you most?
Colour each conquest on the map as you complete it! You’ll soon discover there are so many things to read and places to read them in. Readers who finish the adventure can share their colourful maps with The Open University by using the hashtag #OUReadingAdventure
Books to Build Resilience in Difficult Times
These are very different times for all of us at the moment, and while some people may be finding this time enjoyable in lots of ways, we are also facing many challenges - like not being able to see our friends and family whenever we would like to. However, it's really important that we learn to build resilience in times like these, as life often throws tricky situations at us that we need to learn from and be able to bounce back from. We've attached a list of some fantastic books which demonstrate how others have faced challenging times and managed to build resilience. Reading some of these books will not only be enormously enjoyable, but they may also help you learn how build your resilience even more than you already have. We hope you enjoy some of these.
St Richard's Reading Strategies
These are St Richard’s reading strategies. We use these alongside our phonics knowledge to help us decode words. Discuss these techniques with your child when you are reading together. Your child will be set reading tasks on their individual class pages and will be sent home with reading books. Please also use the links on this page and the individual class pages to access reading materials on line.
Reading is an essential skill and key to unlocking learning. During this time of home learning, please read, read and read some more. Read anything and everything, anywhere and everywhere.
