So much great work today and so many lovely ideas for your creative writing task! Let’s hope we will all be able to go to the places we are dreaming of soon!

Adele – Another day of excellent work! It’s lovely to see you working so well with your sister, I hope you enjoyed the trifle it looks delicious! Sorry I made a mistake with the spelling shed logins, I will try my best to get them to you somehow!

Alex – Lovely treasure map and writing today – I, too would love to go to the Caribbean and find some treasure! Well done for your great maths work too!

Allira – Super maths and English work today, well done! It seems like you’re doing really well with numbers to 100 and even wrote a sentence to explain how you worked it out, wow!

Sonny – Your ideas for where you would like to go are making me dream of holidays! I would LOVE to go back to Disney World too, and I’m sure Miss Webster would too! Excellent video as well today.

Katie – It’s great to hear you have been doing such amazing reading and maths, it sounds like you have been showing passion for your learning! I am really enjoying seeing what you have been up to, perhaps you might prefer to write a short diary each day to tell me what you have been doing? Or if you wanted to write some questions to me I could answer them on the blog? Or maybe you could write me a joke each day? I’m really looking forward to seeing your writing, I know how amazing it can be!

Jake – I love your idea of flying to America, that sounds like so much fun! Well done for remembering your continents, I can tell you have been practising our continents song!

Fabien – Lots of great work in English, maths and geography today and an excellent picture! Your idea of going to Spain sounds incredible, I would also eat lots of french fries, yummy!

There was some great maths work done in an activity book as well today, well done if that was you! Please try to remember to put your name on each thing you upload so we can tell you how proud we are!

Spelling shed logins

We have been asked about spelling shed logins so thought it would be best to post on here for all to see! All children in Year 1 have their own spelling shed account where they can practise spellings in a fun way with lots of games and activities. There is a spelling shed app which we use at school but it can also be accessed online. Here is the website: https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb

Once on the website click ‘Sign in’ (It’s a yellow box in the top right hand corner) and enter log in details.

All children had their logins sellotaped into the front/back cover of their reading diary. Hopefully you still have them! If not, unfortunately we don’t have access to them remotely as they are at school but we will be able to access them once we are back in school!

Hope this helps! 🙂

Monday’s learning

English- Creative writing! Can you write some wonderful sentences about where you would go if you could get on this plane and why would you want to go? Remember to make your sentences exciting. Maybe you could include some adjectives to describe the place you would go? perhaps a joining word such as ‘because’ to explain your reasons for going there. We can’t wait to read your creative writing pieces!

Maths-

Counting to 100. Use the pictures to help you answer the questions about counting within 100.
Geography- Can you remember all the 7 continents? Here is the song to help you if you have forgotten: http://www.viewpure.com/K6DSMZ8b3LE?start=0&end=0   Explore one of the continents, Asia! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbpm6v4

Thursday’s learning!

Are you ready to put some more smiles on Miss Webster’s and Miss Abbott’s faces and fill us with pride all over again? Well done to you all for your continuous hard work that you are doing at home. It is not easy having to do school work in a place that is usually a time for you relax and play so we are unbelievably proud of you children for adapting and still showing passion for your learning. Here are the activities for today:

English –

Look at the photo of the wooden bridge. Write some interesting sentences about the picture. It may be a poem, a description or a story.   Things to consider: How did you get to the bridge? What is over the bridge? What adventure will the bridge lead you to? Do you meet someone or something on the bridge?

Maths-

Week 3, lesson 4: Draw the hands on the clock to show the time underneath.

DT- Can you make a board game and play it with your family members? You can make up the rules and design your board however you wish. Will you have counters? Will you have teams? Will you have to answer questions? Or do you just simply move around the board and race to the finish?  You may even want to create a theme for your game. Spend this time with your loved ones having fun and playing your new game! We are looking forward to seeing your cool games on seesaw.
