New plan! From today, you will find the daily posts on Home > Key Information > Covid 19 (Coronavirus) > Year 1
Today's is there, ready and waiting for you.
I believe the school has sent you an email address, on which you can send photos and updates of the fantastic things I hear you have been getting up to at home, whether Maths, English, Science, reading, learning to cook, learning to make your bed and tie your laces or whatever else! I will post your updates onto this class webpage, and my updates onto the new Covid 19 page.
It was lovely to see Brodie and Wyatt learning outdoors! They enjoyed a nature treasure hunt in the park. They have also been using their mud kitchen, building pirate ships and even went in a mini beat hunt! You have been busy boys, I love to see your creative play. That mud kitchen is awesome!
Ava's beautiful rainbow window has definitely cheered me up as I'm sure it cheers all her neighbours up too! Ava celebrated her lovely brother Harry's 8th birthday too. Happy Birthday to you Harry, I bet this will be a birthday to remember! Hope you had a fantastic day with your sister.
Good morning all! Hope you had a lovely weekend. Apparently you've all be especially busy and creative at home, helping with the cooking, cleaning, building things, doing Art, Maths, English and lots more! I'm so impressed with you as always!
I have created a challenge sheet for you this week. I have put a picture version and also one you can download, then you could maybe highlight or cross out each challenge you complete on your computer (or some of you may even have a printer). You could pick one or 2 to do a day, so don't worry if it takes you a few weeks, you can compare with friends where you are up to!
I've also explained below about a great new feature I found for you on Google last night!
Enjoy and be good for your grown-ups!
Happy Friday Year 1! I hope you are all looking after your grown ups. Not too far until Easter now, so today I have found you some ideas for Easter crafts. I've tried to find crafts which only need things from around the house like toilet rolls, socks, maybe some bits of paper or card and colours. You could make them as Easter presents for your family to make them smile.
Have a lovely weekend, see how creative you can be, how much exercise you can do and keep finding time to read.
Another sunny day! Hope you are all doing well. I wonder how many of you did tasks about sound yesterday? If you just want 2 little things to do today, find a book you enjoy to read to a grown up and either practice some counting in the house or garden or try one of the maths games online.
The weather might not stick so if you can get out in the garden then make the most of it. Think about all of your senses this time.
Touch - Can you find something soft? Spiky? Squishy? Hard? Rough?
Smell - Can you find things that smell nice in your garden? Maybe your grown up might have herbs and spices which smell nice in the garden or kitchen?
Sound - Sit in the garden, or by an open window, with your eyes shut. How many things can you hear? Write them down.
Sight - Draw 5 things you can see.
Taste - Challenge for while you are not at school. Try 5 different foods you have never tried before. What do they smell like first? Are they crunchy? What do they feel like in your mouth? What do they taste like? What did you like about it?
Happy rest of Thursday!
Good Afternoon Year 1! Another sunny day!
We had just started learning about senses in Year 1 science, so I thought today we could all focus on sound. How do we hear sound? Without doing anything to annoy your grown ups, what in your house makes an interesting sound? Pick one thing. Now test what affects how you hear this sound. What if you are further away from it? What if you have your earmuffs or hat on? What if you are having your bath later and your ears are under the water when someone makes the sound. Does it sound different? Why do you think this is?
Here's a crafty challenge for you. Can you make a musical instrument? Or a set of musical instruments? You might put bits of lego or dry rice in a bottle. You could use elastic bands round a box like a guitar. See what noises you can make and how you can make the noises change. Have fun!
Good Morning Year 1! I wonder how many of you were exercising with Joe Wicks at 9am? Don’t forget all the bits I added yesterday, maybe you could use them to create your own timetable. I’ve added a new maths game below, I checked and it works on phones too. Also David Walliams is reading a story every day, you could listen while your grown ups are busy.
We hope you have all been able to enjoy the sunshine at the weekend, whether in the garden or just getting all the windows open to blow away the cobwebs!
We know getting started on how to organise your time this week might be a bit daunting for some people, so we have attached some documents below with a potential timetable, ideas and activities.
We will stress that there is no obligation to even open these! They are just there for anyone who would like.
As part of our Weather Science topic, we predicted which material would be best to use to make a rain catcher. We tested our predictions and found that the plastic bottle was best.
We had so much fun when we went to Oliver Henderson Park to look for signs of Autumn. Can you spot any?
A big thank you to all of the grown ups who came along and joined in with our dance workshop this week. It was a lovely opportunity for grown ups to see what children have been learning in dance lessons this half term and to have fun! Everyone got involved and the children absolutely loved it!
