New Resources

 

I am adding new activites daily to our Google Classroom. If you have not already, please sign up and assign yourself to the Year One classroom using the code texted to your phone. 

The Oak National Academy is a new online resource that has been specifically put together for supporting parents during COVID-19. This resource has been created by 40 teachers from leading schools across England. It will provide 180 video lessons each week. 

This is a very useful resource that could really help to support you in helping your child with their learning at home. You do not need to make an subscribe to the website. 

Follow the link above

Google Classroom

You may have received a text message about Google Classroom. Google Classroom is a platform that I will be adding work in the coming weeks. The children can complete the work that is set and can submit it for me to comment on. I don't mind how the work is completed (on the Classroom or on paper and a photograph is uploaded). I will not be setting dates for the work to be completed as I can imagine what it is like at home. Do them when it is best for your family smiley

 

Instructions:

1) Search for Google Classroom online, on the APP store or on Google Play.

2) Download the APP

3) Login using a Google Account 

4) Add our class using the code that has been texted to your phone

5) Submit assignments 

 

Maths

 

It is important that your child has a good understanding of addition, subtraction, ordering numbers and number bonds to 10. The activities given in the home learning pack help to support this learning. Please could I ask that you also practice times tables 2's, 5's and 10's

English

 

 

In the home learning packs, I have given opportunities for creative writing. In class we have been focusing on the Year One non - negotiable: 

  1. finger spaces 
  2. capital letters 
  3. full stops 
  4. phonics 

We have focused on using these in every piece of writing. Please encourage your child to use these in their writing.
