Home Learning

 

Miss Curbishley and Miss Warden miss you all lots and lots. However, we are going to make learning from home as FUN as possible for you all! 

I will upload daily activities for you all to do at home on this page, and will give your grow-ups a call each week to see how you are getting on! 

Stay safe x 

Let's get ourselves woken up and moving with a 5 a day or PE with Joe - or both if you really want to challenge yourself!

 

Easter Challenge!

 

Can you create your own zoo?!

You can be as creative as you like with this open ended challenge. Have a think about what different materials the enclosures may be made from to keep the animals safe.

Reading throughout the week

Read the blurb- what does this tell us? 

Can you read a couple of pages. 

As questions as you go about what is happening/could be happening. 

Can you predict what might happen at the end of the story?

Look at a picture on a page- can you think of three different things that could be happening in the picture?  

Topic of the week! – resource in pack (Table for materials)

 

Think about if you were to make your own superhero cape.

Can you test different materials that you could use?

Examples might be- foil, cling film, toilet roll, paper, card

Are they waterproof? Would they survive the challenges you may face as a superhero!

Draw and label the materials.

Describe the materials.

What is good?

What is bad?

Would you use this material for your cape?

 

Challenge- can you make your own superhero cape using one of the materials you tested? Take a photo to show your teacher and have lots of fun with it! 

 

(Purpose- We want the children to explore a range of materials. To describe them, to make predictions and to investigate them. There is no wrong or right answer, we want the children to be 'scientists' to come up with an option of material that they think fits the purpose- cape making!)

Every day Routines

 

School starts at 8:50am prompt every day. On a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday parents are invited into school for 10 minutes with the children to complete SODA (Start of the day activities). This is a great opportunity for some shared learning before the day begins. On a Thursday and Friday we ask that parents 'kiss and go' so that we can get straight into our routine of getting changed for PE/getting prepared for celebration assembly.

School finishes at 3:30pm prompt. Please be on time to collect your child. 

Please ensure your child has their book bag in school every day. Thank you 

 

Reading

 

Your child has a colour levelled reading book that they will change in school with an adult. If your child has read their book and needs a new one, please put it into the basket by the door at the start of the day, along with their reading record. Please read with your child ideally every day, but as often as possible. Reading opens so many opportunities and is fundamental to your child's learning. We want all children in Year 1 Beech to move their way up our reading tree, by reading every night throughout the week! 

 

Homework 

 

Homework will be sent out every Friday, please return the completed homework by the following Wednesday so that it can be marked. Thank you. 

 

PE

 

Year 1 will be having PE on either a Monday or a Thursday. Please send your child to school with a full school PE kit. Plain White t-shirt, black/blue shorts, and pumps. This can stay in school until the end of each half term. Thank you. 

 

Celebration Assembly

 

There will be a celebration assembly on Friday each week. Two children from each class will be selected for a certificate. If your child has been chosen, you will receive a text on the Wednesday before.
