We hope you are remaining well. We will be running another zoom meeting for each class on Wednesday 8th July. The website link and password for these meetings are exactly the same as the first catch up session two weeks ago. If you require these details then please send an email to the class email address. The 1JS meeting will take place at 4pm and the 1JF meeting will take place at 4.30pm.
Below are the weekly resources to support your child’s home learning. Please DO NOT complete these tasks if your child is now attending school.
Creating a healthy fruit salad
As part of our ‘Healthy Living’ topic, we had planned for the children to bring in fruit to create a healthy salad in school. Due to obvious health and safety reasons, this is no longer possible.
Therefore, we would love it if the children can make a healthy fruit salad at home and email some photographs to the class email addresses for us to share in school!
Please continue with the daily phonics lessons and reading on Collins ebooks and Bug Club. Education City also has reading activities available.
On Monday, you will receive an email to inform you of the book your child should read over the week.
This week, the children in school will be completing their Talk for Writing based on the ‘We Found a Hat’ story. The flipchart, model text and two useful YouTube clips (including the read aloud story) can be found below:
Please see the work overview document at the top of this page for further information about how to complete this unit.
We would also like the children to continue practising their handwriting skills. Here is a PDF document with blank handwriting lines for your child to practise their lower case letters.
This week’s spellings will be available on Spell Anywhere from Monday morning. To access Spell Anywhere please follow these steps:
Access the school website —> Click on Pupils —> Click on Spellings —> Click on Year 1 —> A list of high frequency words will appear
The spellings to practise for Monday 6th July are:
trouble, double, shoulder, badge, bridge, fudge, grey, obey
The spellings to practise for Monday 13th July are:
cheese, please, house, purse, tortoise, hatch, kitchen, witch
We would like the children to continue with the focus on unit addition facts and being able to recall such facts with speed. These facts can be found on the following ‘Fact Fluency Grid’:
Please also complete the five daily lessons below. The lessons continue with multiplication and move onto division:
Please follow the timetable and work overview guidance for topic activities. This week will be continuing with our Science topic: Animals Including Humans. Here is a ‘flipping mat’ to support your child’s learning:
Here are the resources for this week’s lessons:
Lesson 1 – Animal feeding groups
Lesson 2 – Sketching a lion face
Please follow the above video to complete a lion face. The children in school will then be sticking this onto a background ‘wash’ which they will be painting in school. If you have paints at home, you may also wish to do this. Alteratively, be imaginative and create a background using different media!
Best wishes and take care,
Mr Storer and Miss Faulkner
