Try watching a short French animation or video clip every day or play an on-line French game. There are so many engaging and carefully selected resources available on our school website which will help children to keep children tuned into their French learning. Tivi5 Monde is particularly popular and animations are updated daily. Click here for our French page.
It is important to look after your physical and mental health during this difficult time and staying physically active is a great way of doing that. Although many of us are practising social distancing and staying at home more than we may do normally, there are still lots of things you can do at home to keep your physical activity levels up. The resource is below is full of great ideas to stay active for Early Years.
For the coming months we are also going to change the criteria for our Fielding Sporting Stars page on the website. We want to see videos or photos of what you are doing at home in order to stay active. It could be taking part in one of the ideas below, doing some cosmic yoga or a fitness video online or absolutely anything else. https://www.fieldingprimary.com/fielding-sporting-stars/
Also keep an eye out for the new ‘Fielding’s Always Active’ Challenge which will be coming soon to the website.
Stay active and stay healthy.

Supporting your Child at Home
Each week we will update our notice board to inform you of the learning that has been happening in Reception that week. We will offer suggestions of how you can support identified areas of English and Maths at home.
We will also include the learning that will be happening in these areas during the next week so you have a clear idea of what is ahead.
Mathematics - Numbers
• Plan a picnic and let your child decide how many sandwiches and bananas you will need.
• Make a number line using birthday cards.
• Play number snap or bingo with numbers that your child has cut out of a magazine.
• Sing number songs where your child has to count backwards like “Five Little Ducks” or “Ten Fat Sausages”.
Mathematics - Shape, space and measure
• Sort out the pairs of shoes so that they go from small to big.
• Make patterns with buttons or lids, like “big, small, big”.
• Allow your child to give you instructions for an obstacle course, like “Go under the blanket”, “Go through the tunnel” and “Go behind the chair”.
Please see the materials and video links below with ideas of how to support your child in maths.
