School Based Video Learning


We are pleased to start a VERY exciting school based video learning opportunity!  Mrs Keene is now the proud parent to 2 (so far) goslings.  They have recently hatched and she is going to send in video updates so we can watch them grow.  Children could watch the videos to see the stages in growth of the goslings, and watch their development.  Check back soon for more updates!

Competition Winners!

Gosling 1 is called Gary, successfully named by Walter!

Gosling 2 is called Jerry, successfully named by Fred!

Film based Writing Activities

The website litfilmfest is releasing a video every weekday at 10.30am to inspire a writing task on their Youtube channel.  They create films and activities specifically designed to engage children in film based narratives and exciting written tasks.  Other writing challenges can be found on their website:

Ruth Miskin Phonics

The school uses Read, Write Inc to structure our phonics teaching for children in Reception and KS1.  Every day a phonics lesson will be delivered to enable children to continue practicing the phonics they have learnt in school – we really strongly recommend parents make use of this video learning.  The material is delivered based on 3 sets, so please ask your child’s Teacher which would be most appropriate for your child to follow. There is also a wealth of material to support phonics work on the Facebook page ‘Ruth Miskin Education‘.

Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12.30 pm
Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm
Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm

Radio Blogging

This is a bit of a sneaky entry onto the video page – as its actually a radio channel.  A group of educational consultants have joined together to create a radio station for children to listen to and contribute to – they can get their work read as part of the radio program.  As far as I’m aware, the plan is that this will be on throughout the school day!  So it could provide lots of activities and interest.
