RBPS Reception Virtual Tour

pure sounds

We have created this short video to model how we say all the phonemes in phase 2. They are:
s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss
We hope this helps at home.

RBPS Phase 3 phonemes

In this video you can hear the teachers in Class 1 and 2 introduce the phonemes from phase 3 in phonics. Lots of these are digraphs [2 letters that make 1 sound/phoneme] but there are also some trigraphs [3 letters that make 1 sound/phoneme] also.

Home reading 1

This video has been made to model a reading session at school but should give you some ideas to help you at home. This book has words on each page.

Reading at home 2

This video offers some ideas on how you can support early reading at home when the book you are sharing has no words.

Christmas Jumper Day 2020

We always love seeing the different jumpers that children are wearing for Christmas a Jumper Day. There’s always some comedy ones and some traditional ones. Mrs Lamb really likes anything that sparkles and Mr Beard likes the musical and light up ones. 

FS2 thank you 2020

From everyone in FS2 this year, we just wanted to say a huge thank you and goodbye.

We know we can't speak to each and everyone of you and we can't give out any hugs right now. We do want to make sure that you know how much we appreciate hearing your kind words and how much they mean to us. It has been a tremendous privilege getting to know each and every one of you and watching you grow and mature this year. Next year is going to be an amazing adventure for you all and we can not wait to see what you achieve.

Have a wonderful summer, we can not wait to hear what you have been getting up to. Stay safe everyone.

RBPS Foundation Stage Socially Distanced Sports Day 2020

Even though we couldn't hold our usual sports day for parents to watch, we were able to hold some races for the children to take part in. We did a hurdle race, a bear run and a sprint. Everyone had a chance to take part and we all cheered for our friends. We hope you enjoy this video.

Mr Landa makes Aloo Gobi

Mr Landa has set you the challenge of making aloo gobi in the tradition Indian way.

This would be a great activity to together as a family, preparing the vegetables and cooking side by side.

We hope you enjoy this recipe, don’t forget to let us know how you get on.
