Note for parents

 

Term 6 Home learning:

During term 6 the home learning tasks will be slightly different. I have provided a list of websites that offer a selection of educational activities and games so that your child can continue their learning at home. Some of the activities can easily be replicated using paper and pencils so a tablet/I pad is not essential. Please keep practising Maths, Reading and Writing daily as well as a Wider Curriculum subject of your choice (e.g. PE, History, Art).

 

Reading

If you haven’t accessed Active Learn Bug Club Reading please email me so that I can provide you with your individual log on. Bug club is an awesome way for your child to continue to practise their reading. There are a wide selection of books that are matched to your child’s reading ability allowing them to practise and consolidate their phonic skills.

Year 1 Home Learning WB: 11th May 2020

Hello Year 1 superstars!

 

I can’t believe it’s week 4 already! I hope you enjoyed all of the week 3 activities and I hope you have been getting lots of exercise and doing lots and lots of superhero reading!

 

 I have been a busy bee over the last week; playing lots of board games and reading some super books. I have even found some new books for our classroom that I think you will love!! Bali and I have been out on long walks. Our longest walk was 10 miles and when we got home, Bali was so tired that she put herself to bed!  I have been thinking about you all a lot and imagining happier times when we are all back together in our beautiful classroom. I have also been thinking about the fantastic efforts that I am sure you are all making with your reading so I decided to make some superhero decorations for our book corner.

 

    

 I really hope you enjoy this week’s challenges and please keep posting your work on Facebook. Your efforts so far have been outstanding and have really made me smile! Thank you for working hard and being exceptional learners!
