Easter Activities - 06.04.2020  

 

Hello Year 1,

We hope you are keeping safe and finding a nice balance between home learning and enjoying time with others at home. Thank so much to everyone that has been emailing photos of you completing some of the work set, it is great to see all of your hard work. 

Here are a few ideas to keep you occupied over the Easter holidays. Remember, you don't have to do every activity and you can go back to previous weeks as we are leaving these on the site.

Easter Activities - 13.04.2020  

Happy Easter holidays Year 1!

We are still updating the website every Monday with new ideas, links and resources for home learning. During the half term we suggest your child takes a break and you lean more towards extra curricular activities. such as encourage gardening, board games and crafts or even a film day! Please do not feel pressure to fill your childs day with endless learning. Small doses of learning keep children engaged and it's far more enjoyable for them.

Thanks

Year 1 Team

 

Easter Challenges- optional

Home Learning ideas- 30th March

Hi all,

We hope that everyone is well and keeping safe. Here are a few suggestions for things to do at home to hopefully keep some structure and to provide entertainment. Do send us emails of what you are getting up to, it would be lovely to see. Please don't feel any pressure to complete all of the activities. We have provided them to offer an optional starting point for learning. Please don't hesitate to get in touch by email if you have any questions or concerns. 

 

 

 

Further ideas on how to support your child's learning at home:

 

  • Using Twinkl  ( link above) and Phonics Play look over phase 3 and 5 sounds and play games to go alongside this. Phonics play and how to login below:

  • Look at our Year 1 home learning page ( link below) for high frequency word spellings and some extra phonics homework.
  • Look at making puppets and the different styles of puppets you can create and look at suitable materials to make them.
  • Look at different traditional tales around the world and try to retell a story in writing and children can use a picture to write a story E.g . The sad Sea monster. ( Show a picture , tell a story about him)
  • If you would like to do some workouts at home you can join in with Joe Wicks 5 minute moves for children or Cosmic Kids Yoga Websites Below:

  •  An art outcome where they are doing observational drawing in the style of someone e.g Quentin Blake . The children can use a range of mark making techniques. 
  • Follow the Maths homework grid for some ideas.
  • Research about climate change and create a poster.
  • Reading comprehensions ( see Twinkl website)
  • mindfulness colouring
  •  Crafts and junk modelling 
  • Baking is a great way to use some Math skills
