Good morning everyone. I hope we are ready for another week of home learning. I would just like to say the work I have seen so far has been fantastic! Well done.
Please note sometimes I add activities to the class page late at night so please remember to only access the pages daily to ensure you see all activities.
Please have a pencil and paper ready for zoom sessions.
Happy New Year to you all.
Although this is not the start to the year that we would want let's hope it will help with the bigger picture.
Home learning will be uploaded as in the last lockdown, please do what you can. A lot of the worksheet activities that I have uploaded can also be done in a much more practical way and this is how we would work in school so I will add practical suggestions too.
The children were very excited about our new topic Castles and we had discussed some exciting activities so hopefully we will be back to school as quick as possible.
On Friday afternoon I will attach a link to a zoom meeting so we can have storytime together so please check on Friday's page for the time and link.
Next week I will be also starting our class text and will do through youtube as in the previous lockdown.
If you have concerns or queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Well done to Maggie and her little brother Freddie.
Maggie and her family made Christmas decorations last week and sold them to family and passing neighbours. Maggie raised over £500, which will be donated to Eden Valley Hospice. We are very proud of you Maggie!
This week in Maths we are focusing on shape.
Here are some activities for the week.
In English we are working up to a descriptive piece of writing about the Savannah.
Look at the African animals in the pictures below. Use adjectives to describe them.
Now write sentences about what the animals might be doing in the Savannah. Your sentences should include a doing word (verb) with an ing ending ( suffix).
The fierce lion is hunting.
A sleepy zebra is sleeping.
The tall giraffe is grazing.
Can you think of your own sentences.
Look at pictures of a Savannah sunset. Can you use hot colours to create your own sunset. You could add silhouette animals once your sunset is dry.
Remote Learning W/C 16.11.20
Please remember this work is only if your child is absent from school.
This week our class will be making Poppies to hang in the village so please look out for your child's poppy from Wednesday 11th November.
This week please revisit any spelling errors that were sent home on the last day of term.
Tuesday 3rd November
Wednesday 4th to Friday 6th November
Year 1 Watch the video and complete the maths sheet
Year 2 Watch the video and complete the worksheet.
Please look at the powerpoint with an adult and discuss these events from the past.
It's lovely to be back at school!
The children have settled quickly, adapting well to the new routines.
Over the next few weeks we will be revisiting prior learning. We will be focusing on phonics and reading. I will post an overview of our phonics and spelling patterns so please practise these at home with your child. Year 2 children will be revisiting already taught sounds to prepare them for the phonics screening check after half term.
All children should have brought a reading book home by now. Books can be returned on a Wednesday and new ones will be given out.
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact me through the new email.
Just a reminder that reading books stay at home and are only returned on a Wednesday, if your child has read the books they can reread them to increase pace and fluency.
On a Wednesday afternoon I have my P.P.A time so Miss Buckingham will teach Science to the class.
Friday 18th September
Today your child should have come home with their Spelling Shed password. I have put the year 1 and year 2 common exception words on Spelling Shed for the children to practise. I have uploaded all the words but we will concentrate on a few each week in class (please see the spelling overview ). The children need to be able to read and spell these words and they are tricky so please support your child at home with this.
Next Friday I will post the homework activities that can be completed in your own time, although I would like to see the homework activities before half term. If you could photograph any activities your child is really proud of and email them to me and I will share them in school. Every Monday I will upload an overview of activities that we will be doing in school. If your child is absent from school they can complete them at home, if they are well enough to do so. If you have any problems logging in at home to Spelling Shed or have any questions; no matter how small, please get in touch using the class email.
Welcome to Year1/2!
