Y1 Notice Board during school closure
SCHOOL IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS.
We will post school work on this Notice Board on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you need to contact us please use the following email addresses:
We have created a password protected Y1 page which allows us to post children's work and photos safely. You will receive a parentmail with the Y1 password. Please do not share this beyond our immediate Y1 community.
We hope that you and your families stay safe and well. Here is some advice from the Healthy Schools team: Staying Healthy - Information for Parent
We hope you are settling in well to the your new learning routines. In addition to the tasks that we are setting for you to do, it would be wonderful to see pictures of other activities and skills that you are also learning at home. It could be anything from learning how to tie a shoelace, following a cooking recipe, some gardening, or sewing on a button.
If for any reason you are unable to do the tasks we have set, there is nothing to worry about. We hope they will be helpful! Tasks will disappear as new tasks are added (on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) so you could take a screenshot of any task you want to save for another time.
In some activities we have provided a mild, hot and spicy challenge. Go with what your child is comfortable with doing. If they find mild relatively easy then they can go on to complete the others too. Do as much as is manageable for you.
Some parents have asked about using Class Dojo at home. If you go to www.classdojo.com/beyondschool/ you can set up your own account and create your own Dojo monsters! You can give points for home learning, chores etc. Unfortunately we can't add you to our school Dojo system but you can still set up your own version to use at home.
Monday 30th March
Imagine you have been to the moon like Bob. We would like you to write some adjectives or short phrases to describe your trip. These will help you for our next activity of writing a diary entry about a trip to the moon. Remember to think about all your different senses.
You will need to log on to purple mash and you will see an addition and subtraction activity in the alert section for you to complete. To help you find the answers you can use a number line, objects e.g. Lego pieces, or drawings to help you. You do not have to complete it all in one go but can save it and go back to it.
As we are now in the season of spring, we would like you to think of things in nature that you would see in spring time e.g. flowers blooming, baby lambs etc and of the type of clothing you might wear or activities you might do. Record some labelled drawings around the word spring in the same way that we did in school for the autumn and winter seasons. Watch the video called springtime in Espresso to help you.
Spellings will be set every Friday and your adults can quiz you each Friday morning (or whenever is convenient). You can record them in your book if you wish. Your spellings this week are based on the sounds /zz/ and /qu/:
Please spend at least 10 minutes reading a book every day! Keep a list of all the books you read at home.
Please ensure to practice correct letter formation each day. For today practice the letter 'd'. Complete two full lines, remembering to start and finish on the line, keep letter size consistent and include finger spaces. You can also practice again the letters 'a' to 'c'.
