In school we learnt about our senses. Can you remember them? Write down something that you are thankful for, using your senses. Add your ideas to your thankfulness box.

E.g.

  • I am thankful for the waves I can hear in the sea.
  • I am thankful l for the sun I can see.
  • I am thankful for the cakes I can smell baking in the oven.
  • I am thankful for the dog’s fur I can touch.
  • I am thankful for the ice cream I can taste.

 

There is a new idea to  add to your Thankful Box this week.

Excellence in our service with others

How can we show we are thankful, instead of saying thank you? We can say ‘thank you’ through what we do instead of using words. This week we would like you to think about what you could do to show you are thankful. Write down or draw a picture of what you did and put it in your thankful box.

E.g.

I washed the dishes for Daddy to say thank you for cooking me tea.

I cleaned the car for Mummy to say thank you for reading me a story. 

There is a new idea to  add to your Thankful Box this week.

Teachers would love parents to send the writing task to our Year 1 group email. Please do not upload any work online to any social media sites.

Phonics Home Learning

To consolidate learning we have now produced phonics mastery lesson films for Year 1. See below for the links to our new YouTube channel. We will release three lessons a week and they are made up of activities that children will be familiar with from their daily phonics lessons including reading and writing. Children will need a pencil and paper to complete some aspects of the lesson. We hope the familiar structure will be great for pupils and that the film format will mean they can access them a little more independently than worksheets.

Handwriting Home Learning

Each week there will be a new pair of letters from a letter family to practise, with words that contain each letter. You can either print and do them on the sheet or children can write them into their exercise books. We are going to continue with the ‘Curly Caterpillar’ letter family. All these letters start with a curve to the left (anticlockwise).

Spellings Home Learning

We will be revising the spellings we have covered so far this year and each week we will set a task on Friday to learn the new set of spellings. You could also revisit the National Curriculum common exception words, which we have also attached.

Reading Home Learning

We always encourage all children to read at home and we know many of you have many lovely books to read. In order for your child to continue being able to read book banded reading books selected at their level of reading ability, your child now has an account with Bug Club where they have been allocated reading books based on their book band. They have 2 books to read in ‘My Stuff’ and then after completing all of the activities based on the books, they will receive 2 more books. Books read and completed will then go into ‘My Library’ to read. Please use our pupil guide below to help you navigate Bug Club.

We would expect your child to complete 2 books each week and there is a limited number of books within each book band to complete.

We recommend that the first reading will focus on decoding, the second reading will focus on comprehension and completing the activities and the third reading will focus on prosody (intonation, pitch and expression).

Remember, expert readers take time re-reading for fluency, expression and understanding. Keep up the fantastic work!

https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/

Mrs Wordsmith Home Learning

Each week, we will continue upload a set of Mrs Wordsmith words. The task will be new words that we haven’t covered yet. If the children would like a star challenge, they could think of a sentence to write about the word. I wonder how many opportunities you can find each day to practise saying their new words? E.g. I was disappointed when it was time to tidy away my toys… or… I will moisturise my skin after I have had a shower!

Maths

 

 

From Monday 20th April, we will be using some fantastic resources from the White Rose Maths Hub for our home learning. We have chosen these because they really closely match the way we teach maths at St Peter's.

  • Each lesson has a short video to watch with clear modelling and explanations.
  • We appreciate that printing can be a challenge, so you can just write the answers in your exercise book.
  • Questions with a thought bubble next to them are like our 'star challenges' so they may be more challenging.
  • The answers are included for you to check once you've completed the task or if you are getting stuck.

 

From the week beginning 4th May onwards, we are going to be working in line with the White Rose terms dates. This is because White Rose have linked up with BBC Bitesize so there will be more games and activities offered each day which match the main lesson.

To access the learning, you need to:

 

 

 

Nrich Maths Challenges

We will carry on posting a different challenge from Nrich each week and you can also go to https://nrich.maths.org/14600 if you want even more maths!

 

Numbots Online Games

Numbots is a fantastic maths platform created by the Times Tables Rockstars team. Children have their own avatar and earn coins to ‘upgrade’ this by playing games that develop their number sense, addition and subtraction. There is no ability for children to contact anyone else whilst using the platform.

Letters came home on Friday 20th giving children their login details. Alternatively, we sent individual logins via Parentmail to children who were absent. Numbots can be accessed on any computer/laptop and via the free app on tablets and phones.

We would like children to play on ‘Story Mode’ for 3 minutes 4-5 times per week.

They will need adult support to get started but then should be fine on their own.

Story Mode

  • The emphasis is on mathematical concepts and matches our ‘mastery’ approach to teaching
  • It has visual representations, variation and exposure to different calculation strategies and these are in a carefully sequenced order
  • All children will begin with ‘Rust’ level 1 which focuses on subitising (‘seeing’ how many as opposed to counting for small numbers)
  • To get to the next level, children need to earn two stars by answering accurately

 

Challenge Mode

  • No requirement for children to do this (although we think lots will really enjoy it!)
  • Unlocked once they get partway through the ‘Tin’ stage on Story Mode
  • The emphasis is on rapid responses to essential facts and simple calculations
  • To unlock the next challenge, children must correctly answer 12 questions in 1 minute
  • For Year 1 children, please choose from challenges 1-10.

History home learning

Over the next few weeks, we are going to continue our journey as historians as we find out more about the life of Mary Anning the famous palaeontologist. Look out each week for your new exciting task! Remember that expert historians use their skills of observing, describing, sequencing and asking and answering questions. We hope you enjoy your journey back in time!

Excellence in our Service with Others

 

This term our value is Thankfulness.

 

 

 

Week Beginning 04.05.20

 

Choose a key worker that is helping the community at this time. Write a message or draw a picture of them and put this in your box. You could say thank you for the nurses, police, firefighters, bin collectors or postmen and women.

 

Examples

Thank you to the nurses for caring for people in hospital.

Thank you to the bin collectors who help keep the streets clean.

Thank you to the police officers for keeping us safe.

 

Each week we will set a new challenge of how we can show thankfulness to those around us. Thankfulness is about focusing on what is good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have. It is a positive emotion and in unusual times like these it is important to continue being positive as much as possible. 

Week Beginning 27th April –  ThankfulnessTask

It is spring time! The leaves are on the trees and the sun is out. We are thankful for Spring as it brings all the baby animals and we are able to grow vegetables and flowers. We know that some of you have been planting seeds already at home!

Why are you thankful for spring time? During this week, add some things to your thankful box about Spring time. You can write them down, draw a picture or take a picture of something outside that has appeared for spring.

You could even plant some flowers or vegetables in your garden and help look after them.

Happy Easter Year One!

School Closures – Learning at Home

We have carefully selected learning at home for your child during this uncertain time. We greatly appreciate your continued support as we work together to provide learning at home.

Week 1 Reading Reflections

Well done to all the children who have logged onto Bug Club this week and have read some online books. We can see how well you are doing on your reading and your quizzes, there are some great scores!

Remember, expert readers take time re-reading for fluency, expression and understanding. Keep up the fantastic work!

https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/

 

Writing home learning

To support your child with writing, we would like them to use a picture as a stimulus for writing. There will be a picture for each day and examples of how they can use this to create some sentences or even write a story for a Star Challenge. We have included a Grapheme Mat and a Common Exception Word Mat that the children use in the classroom to check their sounds and their spellings.

Handwriting

Each week there will be a new pair of letters from a letter family to practise, with words that contain each letter. You can either print and do them on the sheet or children can write them into their exercise books. We are going to start with the ‘Curly Caterpillar’ letter family. All these letters start with a curve to the left (anticlockwise).

Phonics

Each week there will be new phonics practice uploaded. There are phase 3 and 5 flashcards and common exception words to practise reading 3-5 times a week. There will also be tasks for the children to practise their sounds in the context of reading and spelling words and sentences.

Don’t forget to log on to 'Phonics Play' and have fun with the online games. At this point in Year 1, the children need to practise their mastery of Phase 5a sounds so select that level of your chosen games. We have begun to learn alternative sounds from Phase 5b so they may like the challenge of some Phase 5b games too. Here is the link to the Phase 5 games on the children's area of the site:

Maths

 

Maths Tasks

We know that working on knowledge learned some time ago improves long-term memory. For each week of closure, year groups will upload 5 independent tasks taken from different units across this academic year. We will also add the 'star challenges' relating to the tasks. These are intended to take children deeper into the learning objective. There is not an expectation that all children complete the star challenges but they may surprise themselves with what they can do!

 

Maths Investigations - Nrich

We will also add an additional (brand new) challenge each week from the fantastic Nrich maths site. If you want even more maths, there are ‘open’ problems to solve each week where you can submit your own solutions online: https://nrich.maths.org/8495
