Year 1

 Hi Year one,

Thank you so much for all of the amazing photos that you have sent in. It's really great that we can share all of the fabulous things that you are doing at home. Keep sending them so we can make each other smile!

Your photos can be of you completing one of the tasks that we have suggested, or could be of you learning a new skill, being creative or just having fun!

 

Keep joining in with playing 'I spy' for rainbows when you are out on your family walk.

Can you also put one of your loved teddy bears on one of your window sills and join in playing 'Going on a bear hunt?'

Dear year 1 children and parents, 

 

With the announcement of school closing on Friday until further notice, I will be setting work and keeping in touch with you and the children via our class page.

 

As you are aware, the children were also sent home on Wednesday with a paper pack of things to do to get you started!

In this pack were also the children’s log-ins for Mathletics, Spellodrome, Bug Club and Purple Mash. Log-ins are also stuck in the back of their reading journals.

 

Bug club has been updated with your child’s current book band level. Please can you answer the questions on each bug as I will be reviewing the results!

Mathletics and Spellodrome have been updated too and I will be updating  Purple Mash frequently so please look for the 2dos to complete.

 

Please set a little bit of time aside each day for a little bit of handwriting and time on the individual websites mentioned. Reading books and listening to stories is so beneficial to their learning and fun too, so please use this time to enjoy reading together.

 

I will add new websites and ideas weekly so please keep checking.

In the meantime, enjoy learning and spending time together. Get creative with art, get cooking, keep active and most of all keep safe!

 

If you would like to share any photos of how you and your children are enjoying learning together, please email in so we can share these and celebrate together.

 

If you have any questions please email the office and they will send on to me.

 

Take care

Mrs Rhodes, Mrs O’Brien and Miss Reader

Be a scientist!

Suggestions for this week from Mrs Fargher:

  • Can you think about your pets? Which group of vertebrates do they belong to? How do we know? If you don’t have a pet, choose 3 of your favourite animals to think about instead.
  • What do your pets need in order to be kept safe and healthy? Do you have to walk them, feed them or clean their cage? What might happen if you didn't?
  • Can you write 4 things you can see, hear or feel that tells you Spring has (almost) arrived? Think about the weather, the amount of light we have each day, the plants and trees you can see and animals that are around.

 

PS. If you want to find out more about animals and the natural environment, Chester Zoo have prepared a range of resources and videos which can be accessed FOR FREE (!) here:  www.chesterzoo.org/tozooathome.  Have a look and see what you can find out!
