The Year 1 team would like to welcome the children back to school, be that in person or virtually for now. Hopefully we will all be back at school before too long. We would also like to express our gratitude for your continued support of the children and the school.
We are excited about having some more children in the classroom this term and look forward to seeing them again. We have however still got plenty of exciting things for the children to do within our home learning offer.
You will find our 'Home Learning' folders above where all home learning will be uploaded. There will be daily Maths and English lessons, with YouTube videos to support where appropriate, alongside 1 Science and 2 foundation lessons each week. In addition to this there will be a daily phonics/spelling activity and some great fun PE sessions led by Coach Cam.
We would also recommend reading with your child daily. All the children have made great progress with their reading fluency since September. We would like you to help focus on comprehension by asking them questions about the text where the answers are retrievable or inferred. There are links below for online reading resources that may be helpful.
Numbots continues to be available and you will find plenty of additional activities and games on Purple Mash. All the children have been given login details for these websites, however if you have misplaced these please contact your child’s class teacher directly by email.
If after this you find that you still have time to fill you will also find a generic 'Home Learning' section within the 'Children' balloon of the School Website. This has lots of engaging ideas and activities for your child to do at home. We would love to see the work you are doing at home, so please send us photos which we will add to our online photo gallery.
Whilst we will miss seeing you all at the moment we do look forward to the time when we can welcome everyone back into the classroom. Please feel free to contact us by email if you have any questions or queries and we will get back to you as soon as we can. In the meantime we will continue with our daily Zoom catchups. We will have one a week just as a class group with your class teacher, the others will be for the whole of Year 1. Links will be sent out for the class specific zoom meetings and the Year 1 details should have been sent out already.
There will be a Duty Teacher each day. Please direct any home learning questions to them on the relevant date.
Keep happy, safe and well,
Anne Marston, Lynne Street (Beech Class), Suzie Fradgely, Sarah Gilbert (Apple Class), Sidra Kahn (Elm Class) Jon Anderson (Cherry Class)
