Tuesday 26th January 

Home learning for 26/01/21

Hello everyone,

I hope you all managed to do some of your learning out in the sunshine yesterday.

Here is your learning for Tuesday.

Keep referring to the daily lesson sheet for the phonics, maths, handwriting and spelling tasks and remember  that alongside that there are two different home learning grids for you to read each day too - 'Big Red Boots' for Reception and 'My Hat' for Year 1. These are the titles of the focus poems for each year group for the next two weeks and all learning tasks are based around them.

These home learning grids provide a literacy activity for each day, as well as topic based activities.  

Our PE partners, Arena, have sent this link for some chair workouts; we did them on Monday and they certainly work your muscles! Have a look if you need an indoor workout:

Keep  learning your new poems and I look forward to hearing about your activities,

Mrs W :)

Monday 25th January 

Home learning for 25/01/21

Hello again Class 1,  

I hope you all had a break from learning to enjoy the weekend. We certainly had a mixture of weather!

Here is your learning for Monday, the first day of a new unit of work based around poetry.

Please note that the learning grids are slightly different this week. You all need to refer to the daily lessons each day, as before for the phonics, maths, handwriting and spelling tasks, but please note that alongside that there are two different home learning grids for you to read each day too - one entitled 'Big Red Boots' for Reception and one called 'My Hat' for Year 1. These are the titles of the focus poems for each year group for the next two weeks and all learning tasks are based around them.

The home learning grids provide a literacy activity for each day, as well as topic based activities. please have a look at the grids and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me. 

Please bear in mind that with our younger children it is important to remember 'little and often'. In school we do a short adult-led learning activity and then have some learning through play before the next adult-led learning.

*I need to share some feedback regarding the handwriting which I have seen so far: please make sure that when you have traced over the letter for the day, you  have a go at writing your own to complete the line. You also need to write the words yourselves after you have trace written over them too.

Enjoy learning your new poems today,
Mrs W :)

Home learning for 21/01/21

 Hi Class 1

Here is your learning for Thursday.

Links to the online video lessons for phonics and maths are on the attached daily lesson sheet, alongside spellings for Year 1 and handwriting practice for everyone. Please remember that the activity grid based on 'The Day the Crayons Quit' is also there.

It was so good to have a catch up with the Year 1 children live on TEAMS today - Miss Edwards, Mrs G and I were very excited to see your faces! You were all so grown up and sensibly started to learn how to use the program. I loved reading you a story and hope you enjoyed it too. Thank you to Mums and Dads for your support with accessing the session.
I am hoping to get logins for children in Reception very soon, so watch this space :)

Please note that there is an art lesson on CBBC at 10am today - it links to our art learning all about colours, so do have a look if you can.

Enjoy your learning activities today.

Mrs W :)

Wednesday 20th January 

Home learning for 20/01/21

Hi everyone

Here is your learning for Wednesday.

Links to the online video lessons for phonics and maths are on the attached daily lesson sheet, alongside spellings for Year 1 and handwriting practice for everyone. Don't forget that the activity grid based on 'The Day the Crayons Quit' is also there.

I have seen some great learning already this week; you are all working hard on your phonics, maths and spelling activities as well as making homes for crayons, creating junk modelled crayons and  there have also been some super physical activities. I have also received a great video from Lola, reciting a colour poem she had learnt. Great stuff!

Heidi has been working really hard on her phonics and reading skills; as well as taking part in the lessons she has signed up for the free 30 day trial on the Reading Eggs website and is really enjoying it - do have a look if you get chance:

Year 1 - don't forget to log on to TEAMS for 11.30 tomorrow, I am looking forward to catching up with you then.

Well done everyone, I am very proud of you all.

Mrs W :)

Tuesday 19th January 

Home learning for 19/01/21

Hello to you all 

Here is your learning for Tuesday.

Links to the online video lessons for phonics and maths are on the attached daily lesson sheet, alongside spellings for Year 1 and handwriting practice for everyone.

Don't forget that the activity grid based on 'The Day the Crayons Quit' is also there, as well as a power point of the story.
This week I have added a PSED activity based around feelings, so look out for that at the bottom of the grid. I have already been sent pictures of some great emotions cards today.

It would be good to see more examples of writing - please can I remind you to use your sound mats to sound out words which you wish to spell; children in Reception should write labels, captions and short sentences while Year 1 children can write longer sentences, using your sentence prompts for writing perfect sentences.

I know that lots of children began their curly caterpillar handwriting practice today - tomorrow's letter formation is for 'a'.

On CBBC at 10:05  there is science today - all about electricity.

Lastly a big well done to those of you using Teach Your Monster to Read, I have been sending out more letters and certificates; keep up the good work and you will move on to new games.

Well done everyone and keep sending me pictures of your learning,
Mrs W :)

Monday 18th January 

Home learning for 18/01/21

 Hello everyone, welcome to a new week of learning.

Here is your learning for Monday.
We shall be continuing our learning based around the book 'The Day the Crayons Quit'
and, as last week, the links to the online video lessons for phonics and maths are on the attached daily lesson sheet, alongside spellings for Year 1 and handwriting practice for everyone.

The activity grid based on 'The Day the Crayons Quit' is also there, as well as a power point of the story. Please remember to check the grid for useful links too. This week I have added a PSED activity based around feelings, so look out for that at the bottom of the grid.

When selecting writing activities from the grid please can I remind you to use your sound mats to sound out words which you wish to spell; children in Reception should write labels, captions and short sentences while Year 1 children can write longer sentences, using your sentence prompts for writing perfect sentences.

This week I have added some handwriting practice sheets for everyone - see attached. We are starting with the curly caterpillar set of letters and it would be great if you could practice one letter each day, starting with 'c' today. 

Please continue to select something active from our daily menu - I saw some great pictures of children being physical last week.

After learning to count in French last week, there is counting to 10 in Spanish with Gary Linekar today at 10.05. Great for listening and language skills! 

I look forward to hearing about your learning this week,
Mrs W :)

Year 1-  tomorrow you will receive two emails; one will be a letter from Miss Edwards explaining that we have now set up a TEAMS group for you to meet with me online next week. The other will contain your login details. Please take note of the day and time and we will give more information about joining the meeting early next week. This is only available for Year 1 at the moment.

Well done everyone for all of your hard work. The photographs I have received today show some great maths work going on - it is great to see the different ways you investigate numbers at home.  Remember to place any written work in your yellow resource folder. Don't forget to use these resources to help you with your learning, especially your number lines and sound mats.

Home learning for 13/01/21

Hello!

Please find your learning for Wednesday attached below.

As before, the links to the online video lessons for phonics and maths are on the attached daily lesson sheet.

The activity grid based on 'The Day the Crayons Quit' is also there, as well as a power point of the story. Please remember to check the grid for useful links too - I do add to it as I hear of anything new.

Please keep sending photographs of practical activities; I have seen some super crayons made from collage and some amazing Cosmic Yoga is happening at home (see the daily activity menu for the link)

Remember to place any written work in your yellow resource folder. Don't forget to use these resources to help you with your learning, especially your number lines and sound mats.

I have had a look at Teach Your Monster to Read to see how you are all doing - it would be great if more people could access it this week (it is great way to practice reading and phonics skills). Very well done to Isobel who has received a letter from her monster, thanking her for teaching him/her to read!
Please see the attached information from the Teach Your Monster to Read site - between Tues 12th and Sun 17th January they are allowing parents to download the app free of charge. After that date there will be no additional costs. This may help more people to access it as previously only the online version has been free.

I am sure you will be aware that BBC Bitesize are providing lessons on CBBC channel each day at 9.00 for 5-7 yr olds - do have a look to see if it helps with learning for your child. Tomorrow is all about science and if there is anything of particular interest I will let you know in these daily blogs.  PE with Marcus Rashford at 10:05 tomorrow may be worth a look.
