I have had a very busy day today doing jobs for Mr Fykin and decorating. I can see from Class Dojo, that you have all been very busy too! With the introduction of Class Dojo, I wanted to confirm how the Reception teachers were going to use this resource to communicate with you.
We will be adding two new activities every Tuesday and Thursday (so four in total) from next week. Some of the older children in our school will be receiving a total of 6 each week, but myself and the other Reception teachers want you to continue to read with your grown ups everyday and to keep practicing your phonics skills, so we felt that four additional activities was enough. If you look on the school's website, you can find daily RWI lessons that you can participate in and don't forget you also have the phonics packs which you can use. If you need extra activities to keep you going, you can have a look at the Activities Page or the Reception blog, where other ideas have been shared.
Teachers will definitely comment on all activities that relate to the work that has been set. Other additional uploads that you just want to share, may only be acknowledged with a 'like'. If more than one upload has been received for one activity, we may only make one overall comment. I'm sure that you can appreciate that we receive lots of uploads everyday and so hopefully, this will make it more manageable.
The Reception blog will continue to be updated with general information that is relevant to the whole year group, but teachers will also be communicating information directly to their class via Class Stories on Class Dojo.
How is everyone getting on with learning Mr Fykin's dances? I have tried to learn the first one! Maybe once you have learnt them, you could upload your routines to Class Dojo? We'd love to see how you are getting on! To remind you, you can find the dance tutorials on the Activities Page of the school website.
