Jigsaw remote learning W.b. 11.01.21

This week  we will be learning about:

Guided reading – We will be reading Love Monster by Rachel Bright. Read the story that we have attached to class dojo’s and then complete the work that has been set on the power point. This will include; answering questions about the story, completing a book review, vocabulary work and creating some art work based on the story and characters.

Phonics – We are asking children to practise the relevant speed sound for their phonics groups. They are then to read their phonics storybook before completing  proofreading, answering questions about the text, editing a sentence and producing a piece of writing linked to their text. Children are to see their individual phonics class dojo page for their learning.

Speed sound lessons Mrs Housley and Mrs Barnett w.b. 11.01.21

Maths: In maths we will be focussing on number bonds to 10, 100 and 1000 and how they relate to each other. We will then develop our mental addition strategies using partitioning and our knowledge of number bonds.

Nurture: We are will be continuing to discuss and share our thinking about where we live and the world we live in. We will be exploring maps, developing mapping techniques, developing our understanding or continents, countries and their flags as well as enhancing and maintaining positive relationships with our friends.

We will be posting daily learning (PowerPoints, videos, website links)  on Class Dojos.

ClassDojo for Teachers

We look forward to seeing all your great learning, don’t hesitate to get in touch with any of the Jigsaw staff if you need any additional support during this time.

Take care,

Mrs Housley

Jigsaw home learning

Good morning, this week in Jigsaw 1 we are carrying on with phonics with our groups – below is a link for the Ruth Miskin You Tube channel so you can complete a speed sound lesson each day. Copies of text have been put on Dojo’s or sent out in packs for you to read daily and then answer the questions using the text.



In maths we have been focussing on addition using 2 and 3 digit numbers – you can use resources that you have at home to help you – Lego blocks, marbles, pegs etc. These resources have been uploaded on to Class Dojo or sent out in packs for you to complete.




Please remember that if you are home learning that you must send in photos or completed work to show us that the children are engaging with the learning that is happening. If you have any problems then you can phone into school or send a message through class dojo’s.

Work will be added daily or weekly onto class dojo’s for you to access – this is the same work that is being covered in class each week. Homework will also be set on a Friday as normal for your children to complete at home.


Jigsaw November update.

We have been very busy again this month in Jigsaw 2 Nurture group. We have explored mark making and sketching and colour mixing using paint – focussing on the tones and shades that we can make. We have experimented with using tools to create art work with natural resources and continued this investigation with clay work. Our inspiration was the world outside and we carefully observed and used leaves to create marks and patterns in the clay. We have considered the meaning of Remembrance and discussed why it is important to take time each year to reflect on what other people have done for us and we discussed ways in which we could remember people positively. Finally we have continued to work on our social and emotional development by working alongside and with our friends outside – learning to share resources and develop our ideas with each other.
