Sign of the Week







Hello Everyone

Welcome to Feckenham C.E. First School. We can't wait to meet you. 

Mrs. O'Donnell is going to be one of the adults who teaches you when you come to school in September. Below is a video of Mrs. O'Donnell and there is a link to a story called 'The Smartest Giant in Town', which Mrs. O'Donnell is reading. Things are very strange at the moment but we hope you can get to know Mrs. O'Donnell 'virtually', ready for when you start school. Keep popping back to this page every few weeks for any updates for September.

Parents may find the following leaflets helpful in preparation for starting school. Click on the title to open.




This week Mrs. O'Donnell has tried to ring all the new parents. Not everyone answered so I will keep trying, however you can contact me through the email below should you have any questions or queries.

I read a story called Astro Girl to help the older children at home and in school learn about Space. I thought you might like to listen it too! Here it is


 I hope you are all still keeping well. From the letter sent out this week, you will now know that I will be teaching you 3 days a week and Miss McQueen will be teaching you 2 days a week. Mrs Sealey and Mrs Rutter will be supporting our learning and they will be with you evey day. You will also have a Forest School Session with Miss Welsh. I'm going to get some pictures of everyone for you so you can learn their names and also make you a booklet about routines and things you might need to bring like a drinks bottle and snack everyday. More to follow soon!

Summer Term  Home Learning


Please find below a range of activities for home learning each week. This page will be updated with new activities weekly. The activities are all based on a different book each week and cover all the subjects we would teach in school. We have discussed a range of difficulties families may have, such as limited or no access to printer or laptops or data issues or weak internet connections. On top of this families may have very young children who require lots of attention and children in more than one year group or school. We have decided as a team to create a learning grid which gives activities for each year group based on a one weekly story. The idea behind this is so that families do not have to juggle different books and wide ranging activities requring lots of different resources. We have presented the activities on one grid so you can help support all your children at Feckenham First School. Also, you can move your child's learning between year groups. If your child is finding one particular task challenging, then look at an activity in the year below or if your child is finding the set activity easy then move up a year group. Please remember that each child learns at their own pace and, when we are in school we would plan for your child's own learning at their level. Home schooling is very different and we are having to leave it to parents to decide how their child is progressing at an activity. We have also attached any support documents needed below. If your childs activity requires supporting documents, it will be made clear on the weekly learning grid.

Please remember that whatever you can manage without disharmony will be good enough. Do not feel you have to complete all the tasks. We have tried to make your home schooling life as easy as possible.  Any feedback you would like to give would be very welcome. Please email Mrs. Little and we can address or adapt future plans.  

Take care everyone and remember learning is fun and its great to make mistakes and learn from them!

For additional resources for the White Rose maths site, please scroll to the bottom of VE week. White Rose are currently updating their terms of use. We are a premium subscribed school, which means we can access their activities. The video lessons are free to use for all currently and we are working on the best way to get the activities to you. For now, they are attached in year groups at the end of VE week homelearning resources. 

Resources for VE Week Learning 

Please note we are not expecting you to print anything, we are trying to accomadate everyone, your child can draw things out in their exercise books or copy activties onto paper. Also please remember that whatever you can manage is great, we do not want to put any stress on families during these unusual times. Children can not learn if they are cross and adults can not teach if they stressed. Be kind and do what you can.
