Thursday 30th April

Good morning Class 1, I have more activities to keep you busy again today. You can find all the links below. Remember if you have not signed up yet to Showbie please see the details lower down on our class page. I can see a few of you are already signed up and it was nice to hear from you yesterday. I enjoyed talking to you about the things you have been doing and it was lovely that you were sharing some of your work with me. It made me smile!  

 

I hope you are doing lots of work on your phonics while you are away from school. Make sure you look over all the old sounds we completed through the year as well.

Literacy: Today I have a great lesson for you using descriptive words. We did lots of work on this in class so you will be able to really impress your family and show them what great writers you are. Watch the short video to remind you of how to write descriptive sentences and then there are a few activities for you to try.

Maths: White Rose, summer 1, week 2, lesson 4; Problem solving.

Today you are going to be solving problems for your maths work. The problems are to work out the weight and height of different objects. If you watch the short video it will explain what you have to do. If you are still not sure try to watch the video again before you start the activity. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Back in school we were starting to move onto numbers to 40 so I have an activity here for you to work on putting numbers in order starting with either the largest or smallest. It is ordering numbers to 50 but I know that you are all so clever you will have no problem going onto the larger number.

Today it is Captain Tom Moore’s birthday, he is 100. You might have seen him on the news lately, he has been raising money for the NHS. I have a short reading activity for you about Captain Tom. Try your best to read the information for yourself and then there are a few questions for you to answer. Why not write a short descriptive paragraph about Captain Tom Moore with the information you have.

Good Morning Class 1, 

I have some exciting news for you today. Mr McNicholas has found a way that we can communicate more with each other through Showbie. If you get your parents to sign up you will be able to have a chat with me and show me the fantastic things you are doing at home. It will be wonderful to hear from you as I have missed seeing you all each day at school. I have posted the letter below that will give you all the information you need to sign up. I am really looking forward to hearing from you. 

Ms Collins 

Dear Parents, 

Thank you so much for your continued support helping your children to learn at home. I hope that you are also enjoying the chance to see just how amazing they are, that is the pleasure that I had everyday at school working with them. I really miss the energy and enthusiasm they showed every morning rushing through the classroom door, always wanting to tell me something they had achieved or were just excited about. 

I will upload a set of activities for you each day to help you keep the children busy and give some structure to the day at home. Please do not worry if they are finding the activities too difficult, as I always say to them "Just do your best". Reading is so important, either the children reading independently or sharing stories together. I have included some links below that will help you to access online books the children can read and audio books for them to listen to. 

Enjoy the extra time that you have with your children at home. 

Best wishes 

Ms Collins 

Dear Class 1, 

 

I hope that you are having fun at home with your family during this Easter break. I have been keeping busy at home with my children; we have been drawing, reading, making things, cooking and eating chocolate eggs! 

 

I have just received the lovely video that you made for me. It was so lovely to see you all and hear your beautiful messages. I have really missed all of you, and I am looking forward to being back at school together again; hopefully, that will be soon. It really cheered me up today to see you all and that you all look so happy. I hope that you enjoy the rest of your Easter with your family. I will find some more activities for you to do from next week. Remember to check the website. 

 

Take care and remember to be helpful and happy at home with your family. 

Best wishes 

Ms Collins
