Finchampstead C of E (Aided) Primary School

An enriching education in a welcoming Christian environment

Rosefinch

Welcome to Rosefinch Class! 6/9/20

 

We are very excited to be welcoming our new Reception children into school for their very first week of 'big school' this week.  They all looked extremely smart in their uniforms!  We are also very proud of how responsible and caring our wonderful Year 1 children are being helping our new friends find their feet in Rosefinch Class and how they have bounced back into school after the holidays ready to learn.

 

This week we will be focusing on ensuring we understand all of the routines in our classroom before beginning our exciting topic 'Lost in the Toy Museum!' next week.

 

We are looking forward to a fabulous week with you all,

 

Mrs Guillaume, Mrs Sheppard and Mrs Paterson 

13/7/20 - Last week of term my radiant, resilient Rosefinches!

Wow - can you believe we are here already?!  You have so much to be proud of this year and the 2 adjectives I have chosen in the title describe you perfectly. 

 

You have been extremely resilient through lockdown at home and also in the way many of you have returned to school and embraced all the changes that have come your way.  We are extremely proud of you. 

 

I have also chosen the word radiant to describe you.  This word, my wonderful ones, describes your cheery smiles.  These smiles have honestly carried me through when times have been tough.  Thank you for being so positive...you have amazing attitudes, well done superstars!

 

This final week our focus is on our well being.  You have been awesome this year and seem to be coping so well but all of these changes in our circumstances and daily lives can be confusing and can lead to a whole host of emotions.  Have a look at our Wellbeing Matrix - try to chose several different types of activities to help you focus on the positives and feel good.  You can continue with some of these activities over the Summer Holidays too.  I have put the last Reception maths presentation below and have included some links for Year 1 maths refreshers to help your mental maths keep ticking over this week!  Don't forget to continue with your phonics also.

 

Take care,

Mrs Guillaume

Sports Day at Home!

Reception and Year 1 Home learning 6.7.20

 

This week's home learning will look a lot more relaxed as we make sure to find time to think about eating healthily and to focus on our wellbeing!  You've all worked incredibly hard these past few months!

 

We thought you all might to have a think about his story of The Teddy Bear's Picnic - there's a story to read and powerpoint to share. You'll find a lesson plan overview with some ideas on it for you to try too. Once you've gone through this you might like to send your own invitation to ask someone to join you for your very own picnic, or perhaps your own teddies will join you. Hopefully the sun will shine for you! There's also an activity about designing a sandwich and planning a healthy lunch too, which you might like to have a go at, along with a couple of reading activities for each year group. Don't feel that all these activities need to be completed - they are there if you need them.

 

Just enjoy a picnic with friends or family, eat healthily to fuel your brain and body and hopefully relax with the warmth of the sun on your face! 

 

You'll find all the documents you need below, along with some further phonics, maths and spelling activities that can be carried out at your leisure. 

 

Enjoy the week - we're very proud of all your hard work! Looking forward to seeing some of you in school again this week. Keep on smiling and don't forget to send your photos in too.

Home learning 29/6/20 

Hello lovely Rosefinch Class!  Welcome to another week.  Mrs Metcalfe has uploaded the home learning for Year 1 under the home learning for Reception.  It has been so wonderful to see most of you back at school now.  You are coming in everyday full of smiles!  I hope the few of you still learning from home continue to feel as positive as your friends back at school.

We continue with Jack and The Beanstalk this week, we started some planting last week and this will continue this week as we learn all about plants and how they grow.  In maths Reception will be moving onto their last unit - measurement - and we begin by learning about length and height.

Mrs Vanstone and Mr O'Reilly have been busy designing a sports day you can compete in at home.  I have attached the information below and look forward to seeing your results.  

Have fun!

Mrs Guillaume

 

Reception - Maths - Length and Height - 29/6/20

Year 1 Home Learning 29.6.20

 

This week in school we will continue working on Jack and the Beanstalk and all fairytales in general. I've included an activity book for you to have a go at at your leisure. There are lots of activities in there to complete through the week. I've included the powerpoint of the story again so that you can recap the story first. The curriculum activities set last week can carry on into this week too, so they're there again if you haven't had a chance to complete those we haven't done in school. Remember to keep thinking about all fairy tales and enjoying the stories you can find. I'll add the link that we've been using in school too, along with some phonics revision and a few more reading comprehensions.

 

This week brings us to the last unit in our Maths Books. There are two more lessons on time and I've included in the powerpoint, copies of the pages you'd find in your practice books, so that you can complete at home on Monday and Tuesday. We then have 3 lessons thinking about money which we'll do in school on Wednesday - Friday for those coming in. For the following two weeks, we will recap some aspects of our maths but it will have a much more general theme. 

 

Mrs Vanstone and Mr O'Reily have put together some PE activities so that we can all take part in a virtual Sports Day - This is the main focus of the week so make sure you get your sports kit and trainers on and get sporty at home. Please send in your results. I can't wait to see some photos...

 

Have a good week all and take care - don't forget to look at the Bullfinch class page to see photos of your work this past week or so. 

Mrs Metcalfe 

22/6/20       Welcome to another week Rosefinch Class!

I'm looking forward to a sunnier, warmer week this week...perfect for growing plants!  Our new mini-topic will be all based on Jack and The Beanstalk - one of my favourite traditional tales.  Below this Reception and Year 1 will find some activities based around this story.  Reception - your activites are for the next 2 weeks - don't worry, I am not expecting you to get this all done in a week!  I will add another set of maths on here next weekend but I won't be adding more literacy or topic activities.

I would love to see some pictures from the few of you still learning at home - we are having fun at school but we are missing you guys and can't wait until we can all be together again.

Look after yourselves and your families,

Mrs Guillaume x

Reception - Maths - 22/6/20 - Odd and Even Numbers

Hello Year 1 - it's been lovely working with you over the past few weeks and I'm looking forward to another action packed few days. We're going to be thinking about Traditional/Fairy tales and paying close attention to Jack and the Beanstalk. There are a few activities that we will be carrying out at school, so save those for then if you're coming in. I've included lots of extension activities around this unit if you wanted to do more during the week too.

 

Our Maths moves onto a unit all about time - I've set the work to match up with a lesson in your books for each day this week, so if you come to school and your book is there, then there are a couple of activities you can do to get you ready for recording later in the week.

 

English includes some more phonics and reading for Monday and then we start thinking about our fairy tales from Tuesday onwards.  

 

There's lots to keep you busy - I hope you have a good week and I'll see some of you on Wednesday. Don't forget your sun hat and put cream on before you come to school each day as we'll be doing lots outside too. 

 

Mrs Metcalfe 

15/6/20 - Home Learning

Hello and welcome to the third week of this term...I can't believe we're already 3 weeks in!  All the children back at school have settled in so well and we are very proud of them all.  We really hope that everyone continuing their learning from home is also happy and healthy while managing to keep up their enthusiasm to learn.  It's not easy but remember to keep trying, even when things are tough.  We are so very proud of you all.

 

This week Reception are continuing with their dinosaur mini-topic.  In maths we are moving on to learning about sharing and halving and in English we are continuing with our Talk 4 Writing booklet and please, please, please keep your phonics and reading ticking over!

 

Mrs Metcalfe will be setting some more exciting learning for Year 1 - please see this below Reception's learning for this week.  I was very impressed to see some of the writing our Rosefinch Year 1's had done at school on Friday - well done guys!

 

Have a lovely week,

Mrs Guillaume x

 

Hello Lovely Rosefinch Year 1

Remember to look on the Bullfinch class page to see some photos of what we were busy doing last week in school. 

 

Year 1 home learning is below - there are some activities for you all to have a go at on Monday and Tuesday. The English activities focus on phonics and reading and the Maths is thinking about number bonds to 10 so that you can get your brains working for the recording we'll do in our maths book later in the week. 

 

Keep up with the phonics sessions on line if you are able. Keep up with set 3. There is a link to a bumper pack of reading comprehensions that you might enjoy too. 

 

I've put some extra curriculum activities for this week and they're all to do with RAINBOWS. You might enjoy the Go Jetters episode and I can't wait to see your Rainbow Floss!

 

Have fun with whatever learning you do this week and I'll look forward to seeing the year ones who come into school again on Wednesday. Keep up the good work and keep smiling!

Hello Rosefinch Class and welcome to another week.

It was so lovely to welcome some of Reception back to school this week and to say hello to Year 1 across the playground...to see all those happy, joyful little faces was amazing!

This week Mrs Metcalfe will be setting the learning for Year 1 but you will find it pasted below.  I have planned some 'mini-topics' for Reception for the rest of the Summer term.  Our first mini-topic is Dinosaurs!  It will be our topic this coming week and next week too.  I have posted LOADS below but please just use what interests your little one.  There is a topic plan to give you ideas across the Early Years curriculum based on the theme of dinosaurs.  

Enjoy, and remember, if you are continuing to learn from home you can still email me your photos and copies of your learning and ask any questions you may have.

Have a 'roar-some' week!

Mrs Guillaume x

Year 1 home learning 8.6.20

Hello year ones of Rosefinch - It was lovely having some of you back into school this week! I hope you've had a good weekend. You'll all find your home learning here for the week. I've set different activities for Monday and Tuesday, so that those who are coming back into school can all start at the same point on a Wednesday. We'll carry on with the Talk 4 Writing text, 'Sayeeda the Pirate Princess' and the afternoon activities are all about pirates. I hope you enjoy them; remember you can take your learning off into other areas if you find activities of interest about pirates. Keep up the phonics work too and join in the daily programme if you can.

 

Keep sending your photos in if you're doing home learning - If you look on the Bullfinch page, I have included lots of photos from school this past week so you can show your grown ups what you've been doing. Have a good week and I'll see some of you on Wednesday. 

 

Mrs Metcalfe

Welcome back everyone!  - 1st June 2020

 

We hope you all had a wonderful half term and enjoyed the beautiful weather!

 

This week the planning is going to look a little different in layout on here. As some children in both year groups are returning to school from Wednesday we will have a mix of different ways we will all be learning!  

 

I will be teaching those children in Reception who are returning to school in the hall everyday from Wednesday so other than a bit of reading practice and counting at home we will be covering your Maths, Phonics, English and some of the topic work while we are at school.  Children in Reception who are continuing to work from home will find their learning on here as before.  I will be continuing to be responsible for planning the learning Reception do.

 

Year 1 will be returning on Wednesday and will be doing 3 full days of learning with Mrs Metcalfe and 2 days of learning at home every week.  Year 1's learning will look different whether returning to school or continuing to learn at home because of this.  As Mrs Metcalfe will be looking after the Year 1 bubble at school she will be planning for all Year 1 whether they are Rosefinch or Bullfinch Class.  This won't make any difference to where you can find the planning - it will still be posted here on our Rosefinch Class page.

 

I hope you have a fabulous week, I'm so excited to be able to welcome some of you back into school as is Mrs Metcalfe.  I expect you will all have a mixture of feelings about coming back - that is totally normal.  You might have a funny feeling in your little tummy!  That's ok.  We have all been at home for a long, long time!  Mrs Metcalfe and I have been in school making it all homely and fun for you when you return and we will be there waiting for you with a great big grin on our faces!  If you are staying at home a little longer then please keep in touch using our email - your lovely photos and messages have kept me smiling while we can't be together.  You are all amazing and I'm proud of you all!

 

Love Mrs Guillaume

Monday 18th May

 

Welcome back to another week - the last of this half term!  In maths Reception are beginning to look at the concept taking away and Year 1 are continuing to learn about the new concept of multiplication.  In English we have received an exciting letter...I can't wait to read your replies!  Our topic time in the afternoons will be some fun activities focussing on the importance of looking after our mental health as this week is Mental Health Awareness Week. 

 

I hope you have a fun week and enjoy half term next week too.  I won't be setting any learning activities next week - HAVE SOME FUN doing what YOU ENJOY.

 

Take care lovely ones,

Mrs Guillaume

Welcome to another week Rosefinch Class!  I hope you have really enjoyed the bank holiday weekend and you had some fun celebrating the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

 

This week we return to our topic focus on minibeasts - looking closely at butterflies.  The English focus continues with Max the Labrador for Reception and Pippety the Pixie for Year 1.  In Maths Reception begin a week of learning about adding by counting on and Year 1 finish their work on capacity and begin a unit on multilplication...A busy week!

 

I hope you have a great week of learning and continue to be superstars for your Mums and Dads - be kind and be helpful where you can!

Music for PE week beginning 11th May

Monday 4th May

Hello and welcome to another week of fabulous learning!  We are pausing our topic on minibeasts this week to focus on an important mini-topic: VE Day.  All of our 'afternoon' topic activities will be based around learning about this important national commemoration on Friday.  Obviously many of the planned community events for this bank holiday will have been cancelled but we can still mark this day ourselves by reflecting on the joy at the end of war in Europe in 1945, but also all the sacrifices that were made during the time our country spent at war in this period.  This week you will find 4 days worth of learning in all subject areas as Friday is a national bank holiday but if it's easier please feel free to spread the activities over 5 days if it suits your family better.

Have an awesome week and keep the fabulous pictures of your learning and the wonderful things you have been up to coming in...I've added the latest ones below.

Mrs Guillaume

Home Learning Week beginning 27th April 2020

Welcome to another week Rosefinch Class!  Below you will find all the learning tasks for this week.  It is all based around minibeasts and habitats.  English is continuing with our work on Sidney Spider (I have re-posted the work below but if you already printed this out last week then there is no need to re-print it) and alongside this our continued focus on phonics, reading, spelling and handwriting (please also see the links to the Read, Write Inc lessons below).  Maths is measuring length for Year 1 and patterns for Reception but I have also included a word document for each year group with handy links to some mental maths videos to keep our calculation skills ticking along nicely.

I have absolutely loved receiving the photographs of you enjoying your learning tasks at home.  Keep up the good work my treasures - it is hard, especially at home, but seeing how resilient and determined you are to try your best makes me so proud!  Keep going superstars - I know you can do it.

 

Have a wonderful week,

Mrs Guillaume

Monday 20th April

Welcome back lovely Rosefinch Class!  I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter break.  At least the sun has been shining for us!  I am missing all your little smiling faces so much so please remember to send me some photos of your learning and the fun you've been having - I have put those I have received below.  This week we begin our topic The Ugly Bug Ball which is all about minibeasts.  This week we begin our focus with spiders.  I hope you enjoy learning about these fascinating creatures - love them or not!

 

Don't forget to tune in daily to the Read, Write Inc phonics.  This is so important to help with your reading and writing.  I have put the link and schedule below.

 

Have fun,

Mrs Guillaume

Happy Easter Rosefinch Class!

Below are some activities that are Easter-themed.  They are not must-do's, they are just there if you fancy doing some Easter based activities.  The weather for the next week (at least) looks glorious so make sure you go out for a daily walk or bike ride and enjoy your own personal outdoor space as much as you possibly can.

 

Have a look at the photos below that some of you have sent me of your fantastic home learning! It's not too late - I can add more if you haven't had a chance to send them to me yet - you can email me on the address Mrs Vanstone provided (finchparents@finchampstead.wokingham.sch.uk) or if you are in Reception you can upload them to Tapestry using the 'add observation' link.

 

Happy Easter my little bunnies - I hope you get to enjoy some yummy treats - and most important of all, stay safe!

Easter activity links

Home Learning - Week beginning Monday 30th March 2020

Hello!  I hope you have all had a great weekend and enjoyed learning at home last week.  It was certainly a different experience teaching my own children and there were challenges along the way but we did enjoy spending so much time together as a family as I'm sure you all did. 

 

This week I have uploaded the whole week's learning in one go.  I'm hoping this helps your grown-ups use the time they have to teach you and help you learn in a way that fits in with their jobs and looking after everyone else in your home too!  The activities are suggested ones - there is no pressure to stick rigidly to these or to get them all done.  They are suggestions based on what learning we would have been doing at school - modified for home use!

 

I hope you enjoy your learning this week - I think there are some fun and exciting things in there along with important things that we need to keep practicing so our brains don't forget how to do them!!!

 

Any questions please don't hesitate to email me at the address for Finch parents given to you by Mrs Vanstone.  Please remember that reception parents can also contact me via Tapestry as well as upload photos of things you've been up to.  This will still be added to your children's EYFS learning journal as it would have been in school.

 

Have a lovely week,

Mrs Guillaume

Afternoon Topic Activities Week Beginning Mon 30th March - Reception and Year 1

English - Reception and Year 1 - Week beginning Monday 30th March 2020

Reading, Phonics, Handwriting and Spelling - Reception and Year 1 

 

 - Read as much as you can!  Practice any phonics games you can find online and check out the Ruth Miskin website for any resources they have made free to use there.  Reception children can continue practicing their green words labelled 1.5.

 

- Being read to is just as important as learning to read words for themselves.  Please read every day to your little one...at least once but more if you can manage it.  This will help their comprehension skills and their understanding of books - characters, plots, information - it is amazing what children learn by being read to!

 

- Daily phonics sessions will continue this week on the Ruth Miskin Training You Tube channel.  Set 1 and Set 2 for Reception and Set 3 for Year 1.  Set 1 is available from 9.30, Set 2 from 10am and Set 3 from 10.30 Monday - Friday and they are available for 24 hours from the time they are broadcast.

 

- Handwriting - Please continue to do a letter each day with the next 5 letters in the handwriting booklets - f, g, h, i, j for Reception and f/F, g/G, h/H, i/I, j/J for Year 1.  Please ensure the children are starting in the correct place and following the correct direction and form for each letter.  This will become so important for joining in the future!

 

Spelling - Reception can continue to practice spelling the green 1.5 words and Year 1 can do the first page in their 'Common Exception Words Y1 Activity Book' (page 2).  The words are the, a, do, to, today.

English - Writing project - Year 1 and Reception - Week beginning Mon 30th March

Please see the powerpoint below for the daily instructions on the tasks.  It builds up to a little writing project.  There are templates you can print out if you would like and are able to, if not the children can write straight into their workbooks and you could create a simple minibeast hunt sheet yourself on a piece of paper.

Maths - Reception and Year 1 - Week Beginning 30th March 2020

Great videos for you to watch with your children. They all reinforce recall skills that will help this children with calculation. All are available on You Tube or BBC iPlayer

Maths for both Reception and Year 1 for the week. Feel free to work through these at a pace that suits your child and your family.

Home Learning Week Beginning Monday 23rd March 2020

 

Good morning Rosefinch Class!  I hope you have been enjoying the wonderful weather this weekend by getting outside in your gardens and going for walks or bike and scooter rides with your family.

 

Below are some learning activities.  You will find daily English and Maths activities and I will upload a new Maths and English activity every day.  You will also find a list of topic-based activities that I will update weekly - so don't worry, you have a whole week to complete them! 

 

Parents, I will add roughly how long each activity should take.  Please don't continue if you feel like you are flogging a dead horse - all of us, the children included, are going through an anxious time with many things going on that we don't understand.  Now is the time for spending calm, quality time together.  Activities such as sharing books, playing board games, baking, playing with lego and interacting with your children through play such as role play - superheroes, opening a cafe, playing with dolls - all of this is extremely worthwhile and will help your children adjust to the changes in their lives.  The time guides are a rough guide and activities can be split across a day however it is easiest for you personally to manage them with work and siblings who also need looking after and help with their learning. 

 

For this age group I would suggest you will find their concentration much better in the mornings - particularly when writing or recording in maths.  Some are simple practice and will not need you to help the children very much, just explain your expectations.  With writing - expect the children to write as neatly as they can, and Year 1 the expectation is that they write within in the lines so please give them gentle reminders of this!

 

Enjoy time with your families and keep washing those little hands!  Remember, we need to sing 'Happy Birthday' twice for them to be truly clean! 

 

Mrs Guillaume

MATHS - MONDAY 23RD MARCH 2020

Welcome to the Rosefinch page

Bonfire Night Celebration! We have been learning all about Guy Fawkes and The Gunpowder Plot from 1605. On November the 5th we celebrated this by making our own chocolate-dipped apples which we then decorated with sprinkles so they looked like fireworks in the night sky! We enjoyed the yummy treats while we had a small bonfire. We loved watching the Guy we had created meeting his doom! It felt very atmospheric watching our bonfire with our huge model of The Houses of Parliament in the background.

Reading Buddies. On a Friday afternoon we are lucky to have reading time with our buddies. They come and collect us and take us to the library to read us a book of our choice. We love this special time together sharing books.

Our Fruit Salads! In the first half of the Autumn term we designed and made our own fruit salads. We learned how to peel and chop the fruit for ourselves. It was yummy!
