Hello girls, boys and grown-ups!
We would like to say thank-you for all of the positive comments and fantastic home-learning you have been doing over the past few weeks. We understand it is not always easy, and the circumstances have been far from ideal, but you are all superstars, and it has put big smiles on our faces to see all of the different things you've been doing!
We hope you have had a lovely half term, and that you enjoyed the sunshine. If you'd still like to carry on with some learning, there is still plenty of ideas below.
As it is likely that Year 1 staff will be returning to school from June 1st, I'm sure you will appreciate that we will not be able to maintain such frequent contact via Marvellous Me, so we will add new ideas and home learning activities here each week.
Take care, stay safe and keep smiling.
The Year 1 team
BBCBitesize and Whiterose are now teaching the same area of the curriculum each week but in a slightly different ways.
We recommend that you stick with one or other of these for your daily lessons and then use the other to deepen your child’s learning. It is helpful for your child to see the same concepts taught in different ways. It maybe that this is useful on some days and not on others.
The additional activities on the grid are either more open ended, more practical and fun or are there to consolidate the learning. Do not feel that you have to do all of these and of course feel free to explore other additional resources and ideas. I hope that this is helpful. If you have any questions or concerns please message us on firstname.lastname@example.orgWhiterose: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
Fun Phonics Finale
As we are approaching the end of Year 1, we thought it would be good to refresh your phonic knowledge ready for the move to Year 2. So ... the Fun Phonic Finale has been created!
Over the next few weeks, we will be uploading some phonic videos for you to join in with at home. You will need to have paper and a pencil ready, just like a normal phonics lesson at school!
We want you to impress your Year 2 teachers with your amazing phonics so we will be giving you a challenge booklet for you to complete over the summer. Give it to your new teacher in September for a prize!
