Dear Parents,  

We are attaching a timetable of work for next week. Again, it is based around what we would have been teaching at school and we have adapted the activities for you to do at home where possible. There is no expectation that your child should complete every activity each day but again you have a range of activities that you can pick and choose from. Please help your child to keep up with their reading, phonics and mental maths. 

We are looking forward to seeing you on zoom next week.

Rabbits – Monday 10am and Friday at 1.30pm 
Squirrels – Tuesday 10am and Thursday at 1.30pm 

Please make sure you access the teacher teaching videos on ‘The Enormous Watermelon’, ‘Money 1 and 2’, ‘Dear Mother Goose’ and ‘Being an Art Detective’ found in the Share point folders. 

Remember to keep adding your work to your scrap book and stick in photos of what you have been learning about. Please keep us posted on how you are getting on via email, we are here to support you. 

With very best wishes, The Year One Team

Maths Learning Objectives: To find totals and change of money and use in problems. 

RMeasimaths As the children are able to access RM maths at home please try to fit this in 3-5 times a week. You can now use this on an ipad as well now that it has been updated. If you are using a laptop you will need to use the chrome browser since RM has been updated. 

We know that some of you are experiencing difficulties with RMeasimaths so here are some alternative maths programmes for you to try

English Learning Objectives: To write a letter using a ? to ask questions. 

Reading: read any fiction or non-fiction book/magazine/comic you have at home aloud for 10 minutes. Then ask someone to ask you questions about what happened in the story or what the non-fiction was about. After that, try asking them some questions to check they have been listening! Then write today’s date and the title of the book in your yellow book and ask them to sign it. 

*For an idea for some online books, take a look at https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/help-child-learn-age-5-6/ and search for their FREE online books.* 

You are able to come and collect a pack of reading books from near the double green doors on a Tuesday morning from 10am. Please return these books on a Friday from 10am. 

Phonics: write your first and last name in a book, on paper or on a whiteboard and then write out your spelling words each day. Then choose one activity from the following list: 

  • • Use magnetic letters, bath crayons, chalks or alphabet stampers to write each word. 
  • • Write each word on someone’s back and see if they can guess what it is. 
  • • Write each word in a silly sentence, making sure you use a capital letter, a full stop or ! or ? and spaces. 

Log on to www.phonicsplay.co.uk and play a phonics game with the sound of the week. Use the free resources – ow and oa 

‘oa’ is phase 3 ‘ow’ is phase 5 

Spelling lists are in the children’s Home/school books. Please give your child a spell check each Friday on their spelling words!
