Home Learning for the Summer Term

Good Morning Year One!

I hope you have had a lovely weekend. 

Here is our learning for this week. Just two weeks of home learning to go and then a rest over the summer holiday! 

In school this week we will be checking everybody is confident with reading and writing the letters and sounds from the Read Write Inc programme. We might be sending you some sounds and words to practice so you are happy and confident for Year Two.

If you are at home, please let me know any letters and sounds your child needs practice with and I can email you some sheet to support revising these. 

Our garden at school is growing beautifully. There will be some pictures on the class page soon. 

Have a fantastic week. You are all amazing!

Warmest wishes,

Mrs Wilson

Good Morning Year One!

I hope you have all had a very lovely weekend. 

Thank you for all the great photos of your learning last week. I am so proud of all of you. 

Below is this week's home and school learning planner. Those based in school will be coming for three days this week.

After each assessment, a revision folder will be created. The contents will be tailored to your needs and help you ensure you are ready for Year Two. 

I hope you all have a great week.

Year One HOME English for Thursday and Friday- One activity a day

Year 1 HOME Maths for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (We will be doing these in school) Please remember to watch the videos.

Hello Year One,

I hope you have had a good weekend and managed to dodge the showers.

Below is your home and school learning planner for this week. I have also attached the maths sheets. Please make sure you watch the videos which accompany these sheets. They are on the White Rose website:

Even if these seem a little easy and obvious, it is important to talk them through and watch the images as they help to build up a deep understanding which will support later learning. 

Please see below again, if you need the Sayeeda, the Pirate Princess workbook. 

Remember, the priorities are the Reading, Writing, Phonics and Maths activities. Please pick and choose from the other suggested learning.

As always, feel welcome to email me with any questions or if you need anything printed.

Everyone is doing so well. I am really proud of our super star Year One home and school learners.

Good Morning Year One,

I hope everyone is well and happy. Here is the home learning for this week.

Thank you for all your emails and photos. It is so great to hear from you all. It sounds like there is some fabulous home learning happening. We understand it is sometimes tricky but every bit of learning and reading you do will benefit your future. You and your parents are doing really well. We are very proud of you!

It's just a four day week this week as it is a special bank holiday on Friday. Friday is VE day. Maybe you can find out about what this means. There may even be some socially-distanced celebrations happening near you. 

Have a great week Year One.

I hope you are all well, learning lots and having fun!

I have attached above the Beat That Maths master sheets which can be printed out. I am really sorry, it is a bit fiddly to print as all the year groups are mixed together. If I can eventually find a better way, I will. 

Thank you

Hello Year One

Miss Searle, Mrs McCauley and I just wanted to say hello and thank you for staying at home. For those of you who have your child's home learning pack please spread this out over the week, along with Education City,, reading, keeping active and enjoying family time. This will be enough.

If you haven't got your learning pack yet, please contact the school. You can pick it up from the school reception or we can leave it in the school porch area if you would prefer not to enter the school.

We will be sending more activities through to you after the Easter Holidays. These will include Science, topic, Art and Music etc.

Education City will hopefully be updated every Monday during term time. If you have any questions please email school. 

Many thanks. Keep learning, stay healthy and keep smiling!

Mrs Wilson

We hope that you are all managing to keep active and if possible get out into the sunshine. Here is a link for PE activities that you can try at home.

Keep smiling and keep moving!

Detailed information about expectations in Literacy and Maths for all year groups - including Year One can also be viewed and downloaded below. 
Year One and Two enjoyed a fabulous day pretending to travel to India. They 'flew over the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia before laning in Delhi. They then went on a magical tour of India led by one of our expert parents. they experienced the sights, smells, sounds and tastes by completing activities such as making roti bread, decorating rangoli patterns, making marigold garlands and finding out about how blessings are used in India. A very big thank you to the amazing and knowledgable parents and Grandparents who supported the day.

Year 1 had a very exciting first day back today. We met a very special girl named Penda and followed her journey across Kenya. We challenged ourselves to carry water on our heads, to create a mask and dance a traditional African dance. We learned about the African seasons and estimated how tall our class giraffe was! We finished the day by sharing some mango underneath our class mango tree and sharing our favorite parts of the day.

Year 1 enjoyed creating Christmas cards and eating their Christmas dinner today!

Today year 1 bought in as many coins as they could find to raise money as part of Pudsey day. Year 1 had a really good go at creating the biggest spot in the school!

Year 1 have been learning lots about toys this term, old and new. We have had a go at using our class marbles to play some old fashioned games.

Year 1 have been playing lots of games during DPA this year. We are getting very fit with our Golden Mile running and improving lots of skills too.

Year 1 have been doing lots of sorting and ordering this week. We have also been using the language of more, less, greater, fewer and smaller.
