Please feel free to contact me if you would like any assistance with any of the work set, or if the children just want to let me know what they have been up to! My email address is email@example.com :)
Parents: As you are aware, Year One are a year group that have been asked to return to school. If you are sending your child back, please remember that Year One are to start back Wednesday 10th June. I have a list of those children definitely returning on that day, but if you wish to send your child back and haven't already told me or have changed your mind, please can you let myself or the school know, as increased numbers will affect staffing and rooms. Thank you!
Zoom: I will do a Zoom story session each Friday for all children at 12pm. I will email codes out to everybody that joined last time. If you didn't join last time and would like to, email me for the code!
Work for children is now uploaded for the whole week, rather than day by day. This is because I am now in work Monday-Thursday with the children that have returned to school. Please do continue to do the work day by day though-do not rush off ahead! I will try my best to mirror what the children are doing in school. I will still be contactable by email so please do email me any work or questions you have! This page will still also celebrate any achievements such as Reading Eggs Certificate and good work! I will be ringing the children at home of a Friday.
Below is a short video of what the children will expect to see when they return to school. Hopefully this will put any worries or concerns at ease!
Work from home
Well done to Enya and Eli for their Readings Eggs certificates! Keep going!
Suggested Daily Timetable
Activities you can do at any time:
- ask a grown up to draw you a large part-whole model in the purple exercise book and practice your number bonds within 10 (start from the number 5. Use 5 coins, 5 pieces of pasta, 5 buttons or anything you can find to split into two parts. Can you remember all of the number facts to 5? Once you can, go on to the number 6 and so on...). Use this to play Hit the Button!
- practice forming your letters correctly in the red book! Use the letter mat sent home. Make sure you are controlled with your pencil, that your letters touch and stop on the correct line, that they are not floating above the line. Pay particular attention to b and d
- practice counting forwards and backwards on a 100 square, not just from 0/100, but from any number. You can also use the 100 square to practice counting forwards in 2s, 5s and 10s. Once you can do this without looking at the 100 square, see if you can count backwards! If you have a ball you could teach a grown up or brother/sister to play our counting game! Remember, if you say 3 numbers, the other person can only say 1 or 2 numbers...
- ask a grown up to play 'Find and Copy' with you using the Phase 3 sound mats. You can also do this with the Phase 5 sound mat now!
