Hello everybody. We hope you are all well and keeping safe.
Below you will see four folders containing home learning. We will add to these weekly so that there is new content on a Monday morning. Please do continue to read at home and try out the activities that have already been suggested.
Look after each other and enjoy the learning.
Team Year 1
Listen at eleven!
David Walliams is releasing a free audio story every day for the next 30 days. the link is http://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/
After hearing the story, your child could retell it, write about it, review it or create their own illustrations.
Last week a login for Myon and Education City was put into the front of your child's reading record. If you login to these sites you will find various age appropriate activities have been set for your child. These will be updated weekly.
Reading and phonics is a huge priority in Year 1. Can we please ask that you continue to read with your child for 10-15 minutes each day. Myon is a fantastic resource to use for this as there is a range of exciting texts available to your child. With regards to Phonics, the Song of Sounds Stage 2 song is available on our school website. It would be great if you could play it to your child every day for them to sing along to.
There are countless opportunities at home to help maintain your child's learning while they are off, for example-
Cooking- promotes knowledge around capacity, instructions and turn taking skills.
Painting- fine motor skills, teaches children their colours and encourages mindfulness.
Outdoor learning- Why not set your child counting challenges outside? E.g. can you collect me 20 sticks? Can you add 5 more sticks? How many do you have now? In school we would have been looking at the seasonal changes of Spring, it would be lovely to see some Spring pictures or poems when we next see each other.
There are some fantastic free resources online at the moment that will allow your child to maintain their fitness. Every morning at 9am Joe Wicks is hosting an online PE class (see link below), Cosmic Yoga is always popular (see link below) and 5 a day (see link below) is useful for when the children need a quick activity to let off steam.

Year 1 Local Area Walk
The three Year 1 classes enjoyed a walk around the local area. We used all our senses to really consider the type of place where we live and go to school. We also discovered you can get an entire class in one bus stop.
