Home learning pack 7 (Summer 2 week 5, 6 and 7)
For the next two weeks of home learning, you will find a document labelled 'Home learning pack summer 2 week 5, 6 and 7' below. This document lays out two weeks worth of Maths, English and Foundation subjects. There is a page outlining the lessons we would like you to complete for each subject in the pack. If there is any accompanying worksheets they will be found on the next pages of the document. On top of this, some of the lessons require an accompanying PowerPoint or resource pack these are found underneath the home learning document below. We have also included links to other websites and resourceful online learning. These are optional and are in addition to the home learning packs that we have sent out. We understand that these times are difficult and children may struggle to complete learning at home. So please try your best and if you have any questions do not hesitate to email us.
If you were looking for more work for your child to do, there are several websites that you can access that have daily lessons on. Please see below:
It is important to still ensure that your child is practising their phonics. Support on this is found on the Camulos Academy RWI page. > https://www.camulosacademy.com/read-write-inc-1/
More support can be found on https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/. On this website you will find Set 1, 2 and 3 sounds. Most of the Year 1 children are still learning Set 2 and 3 sounds. Start with Set 2 sounds and if your child can access the learning quite easily then move to Set 3. Some children were in the shared reading group whereby they read passages and books and answered comprehension questions. If this is your child (they should know, if not if they know all the Set 3 sounds move onto shared reading) Continue to use the comprehension questions from the last two weeks (scroll down to find reading comprehension questions document).
Keep up the good work!
Online learning available from the Government -
You may have recently become aware that the Government have released an online learning resource website for parents to use as home learning. This is optional and additional work already set by the class teacher. Please do not feel you have to use this resource but we have put it on here so it is available if you need it.
In year 1 we recommend sticking to a timetable each day. This will hopefully help ease the transition for your child and keep some stability and normality. Below I have listed roughly what our daily timetables look like:
8.30-9.00 - Reading
9.00-9.30 - Daily exercise (see joe wicks PE video on YouTube)
9.30-10.20 - English work
10.20-10.45 - Phonics
10.45-11.00 - Have a break and snack
11.00-12.00 - Maths
12.00-1.00 - Lunch
1.00-1.20 - Handwriting (practise forming letters correctly)
1.20-2.45 - Foundation curriculum lesson
2.45-3.00 - Read them a story
We hope this helps! :-)
Hi all, I have attached a document which outlines the end of year objectives that we aim to meet for Year 1 for each subject. Please use this document as a guideline as every child's learning is different and unique. It should help you see the expectation we have for our Year 1s and what we aim to achieve by the end of Year 1. (Taken from the Government national curriculum document)
Aurora class enjoyed their Science lesson on Static Electricity this week. They got to explore how the balloons stuck to them and also giving the balloon faces a beard with the mixed spices. Children loved seeing how it worked.
