Class Blog for Killigarth


Learn at home with Killigarth Class

The information on this blog is for you to use to trial home learning with your child. As we are all getting used to this way of learning, please take this first week to try as many of these activities provided to find a way of learning at home that suits your circumstances. After Easter we are looking forward to providing further support by posting learning videos which relate to the resources we have provided for you.  

Dear All, 
To help you support your child to learn at home, here are some useful websites which link with our learning in Killigarth Class. We hope you can find time to learn alongside your child and opportunity to talk to them about their learning. We will continue to update the blog with new learning weekly (not in the Easter Holidays) and we all look forward to hearing about the children's learning when we see them again. 
Take care. 
Mrs Counsell, Mrs Fernie and Mrs G 

Please contact Mrs Counsell or Mrs Fernie with any learning queries. 

There are four guiding principles that should shape practice in early years settings. These are: Every child is a Unique Child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.We encourage early learning by: playing and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically. Therefore, we encourage this use of time with your child to build on these skills. Please scroll down to see the attached documents to download (Activities to try at home and 100 things to do indoors) for some ideas. 

READ, READ, READ - Please keep reading every day and talk about it with friends and family. 
We have been enjoying different stories, please see the link below for a FREE resource with 'The World's best storytellers reading aloud' Also, 'Teach Your Monster to Read' is available FREE on Google Play/Apple Store free to download -

Spend 20 minutes each day practising your child's phonics skills. See this brilliant, easy to use website that we use in class We are currently learning Phase 3 sounds and reading and writing them in words. 

Our focus is 'Understanding Numbers'. 
We have been learning about number 9 and 10. We have been finding out about these numbers and how they are made. To help us please watch the Numberblocks Series 2 on BBC IPlayer/cbeebies  

Keeping Active: We all know the importance of keeping children active. It will help them to stay physically and mentally healthy, as well as focused and ready to learn. "The imovement" platform contains resources that will support you and your children at home. You can access these resources for FREE at . New resources will be added on a daily basis, and will include Quick Blasts, Active Blasts and Additional Activities to support Maths and Literacy.

Thank you for supporting your child and us at this time.

Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man! 


Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man! 

We have had so much fun learning the Gingerbread man story. He has visited us in our classroom and school field. He has left us clues and treats to eat. What will happen next? 


Outdoor Learning 

The children have loved the Outdoor Learning sessions. 

So far we have made and tried porridge, popcorn, bread and jam and noodles. The children's listening skill have been amazing as they listen and move around the fire.  


Fine motor skills 

In Killigarth Class we have been completing challenges which strengthen our fine motor skills. 

These have included; hammering pumpkins, practising our letter formation in paint and making houses for the Three Little Pigs.

Making houses for the Three Little pigs has helped us to develop our cutting skills. We have explored different materials  and tools to hold our structures together. 

We have been entering into the spooky spirit and sorting and counting different halloween creatures using tweezers. One child found 20 spiders! 


The Three Little Pigs 

Last week we launched our new enquiry in Killigarth Class 'What would your house be made of?' Mrs G went outside and found a crime scene! We spent time using our detective skills to investigate and use the evidence to help us find out what had happened. We noticed there were several clues; straw, bricks, wood and trotter prints! 

Back in the classroom we used evidence forms to record our findings and mark make in our continuous provision. Working together, we came to the conclusion, after looking at the evidence that it must have been the Three Little Pigs! 

We have been using actions to retell the story and using a story map. We have talked about the trick the 3 Little pigs played on the wolf and thought about the tricks we would use.


Welcome to Killigarth Class 

Welcome to Killigarth Class! 
We have had a fantastic start to our year in Reception by making new friends, sharing stories and playing together. We have been listening to rhyming stories and singing number songs. We have been making the most of the beautiful weather by learning outdoors in our little playground, swimming in our school pool and making clay faces in the garden.
