Why not try out this new PE challenge this week. Add it to the PE Blog too!
Week 2 - 11th January 2021
We made a super start to our home learning last week and are all set to go this week. Well done if you uploaded your work on Purple Mash. It has been lovely to see all your efforts on your work at home.
Don't forget to carry on with your reading. We are still working towards our Reading Certificates so do let me know if you have made it to the next magical milestone!
We are now back to having 'Artist of the Week' on Purple Mash so do look under the topic star for some art ideas that you can add to the blog!
All the work for this week has been posted below. The English will carry on from last week.
Let's have a super week!
The Gruffalo's Child
Happy New Year and welcome back to the Spring Term 2021!
We are obviously not back in school and so we will be working very differently in the coming weeks.
All our work will be set from this page on the website under the subject headings below. I have not set a detailed timetable but the work set below should last for the week. The following week's work will appear towards the end of this week. Hopefully we will know how it's going by then!
Please ensure that your child does 10-15 minutes of reading every day. If you need more books you can also access Oxford Reading Owls where the children can choose e-books to look at.
Phonics plays an extremely important part to our learning in year one and so Mrs Cracknell (on a Monday) and I will be using Google Meet to have phonics sessions with the children. It would be helpful if the children were able to access pencils and paper or a whiteboard and pen fro the Google Meets. Any extra activities will be placed on the website. In addition Mrs Cracknell will be adding handwriting practise resources too. Please do encourage the children to form their letters correctly.
There are activities to practise writing around the story of 'Sayeeda Pirate' from this week. You can read the story and then have a go at an activity that follows. Do try to have a go at a writing activity daily and please encourage the children to use their phonics. There are phonics mats and checklists that the children can use to help under the English star.
There is a maths video and activity for every day under the Maths star. On a Friday there will be extra activities if you would like them!
Our R.E. at this time of year looks at special people in our family, community, church and of course the importance of God. Every week there will be an activity to get the children thinking about the topic.
In school we do Science every week so there will be a weekly activity that is posted for the children to complete.
There will be a creative task that is set or a Geography/History focus under the topic star so do look out for that!
Purple Mash and Ed Shed
There are also activities on Ed Shed and Purple Mash that can also be completed.
We are obviously very keen to see all the fabulous work that the children do so it can all be uploaded onto the Purple Mash blog for us to look at and comment on. Please be aware that as we are on Google Meet in the mornings we will look at Purple Mash in the afternoons.
Once again we are all learning very quickly at working in a very different way so please do let us know if you have any difficulties in accessing the work or there are other queries that we can help with. We will do our very best to resolve them!
Good luck everyone and I look forward to seeing all the children on a screen soon!
From all of us in Year One!
