During the lockdown it is important to stay active and energised, but this is not always easy. Below are a couple of links to sites which make getting children active fun and easy. 

https://www.gonoodle.com/ - GoNoodle is a free site which allows you to access loads of great videos for the children to follow. 

https://www.youthsporttrust.org/free-home-learning-resources-primary - Youth Sport Trust is a great site which contains loads of different activities to do to keep your children happy and active.  


Mrs Gee and I would love to see how the children have been keeping active. Both of our emails can be found on Seesaw. 


As always, stay safe and keep in touch


Thank you.

Week Beginning Monday 20th April


Dear Parents and Carers,

Firstly, Mrs Gee and I would like to say that when it comes to ‘home learning’ we would like you to do as little or as much of this as you can - there is absolutely no pressure.
We know that many of you will be working at home yourselves, trying to teach multiple children, having challenges with internet speeds etc., so please do not worry if things don't quite go to plan. If you are ever in doubt with anything, please feel free to contact either one of us.
Whilst the children are missing education in school, we are sure that they are learning many wonderful life skills at home with you, as well as spending time with their families. Please be assured that we will pick up where they left off, once children return to school and everything returns to normal.

For maths, please follow the link below which takes you to the 'White Rose - Home Learning' website. This is the scheme we follow and the resources they have provided for home learning are excellent. The resources do not need printing.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Literacy and History work is attached. Both follow the same structure as the Literacy last week, which should make it simple to follow. 

Stay well, stay safe and keep in touch.

Week Beginning Tuesday 14th April  


I hope you are all keeping well and safe in these strange times. 

Both Mrs Gee and I have worked on putting together a plan of work for the week ahead. 

English:
There is a sequence of lessons based around the Julia Donaldson book 'Monkey Puzzle'. Each session is similar to one we would follow in class, so the children should be familiar with it. I have also attached a grammar activity which can be done alongside. 

Maths:
We are starting to look at multiplication and division. To start with, we focus primarily on counting groups of numbers and counting up in, 2s, 5s or 10s. There are activities attached which can support with this. I will also attach the White rose planning - something which teachers use to plan their maths lessons. It gives lots of really good practical ideas as well as 
discussion points. 

Reading:
I have attached a guided reading activity all about Bats. 

Science:
As our topic is animals, it seems fitting that our science links into this. BBC Bitesize is a great place for a load of different activities and videos. It can be found at: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv 

I will now be uploading weekly lessons which the children can do. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I will put my email address on Seesaw should you need it. 

Stay safe. Stay well.

Week beginning Monday 23rd March

I hope you are all well and adjusting to the current situation. 

Maths: The focus for maths this week is volume and capacity. I will attach a few work sheets as well as Powerpoints which can be used alongside them. The main focus is all about understanding key terms such as 'more than' and 'less than' and being able to use these to describe how much liquid different containers have in them. 

English: When we are eventually back at school, we will be starting a new unit all about different animals. For English this week they can research and create different fact files about different animals. They can write about their favourite animal, where it lives, describe what it looks like, what it eats and any interesting facts about it. They can also be writing a diary each day of what they are doing and how they are feeling.  

For a Geography focus, the children could create a world map and draw on where some of the different animals live. 

Phonics: The Ruth Miskin Youtube channel has lots of valuable videos to help your child with their phonics. They are also doing live lesson videos (following the same structure used by the KS1 teachers in school). It can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

I have attached a few guided reading / comprehension activities based on different animals. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and continue to keep an eye on the website for any further information.

Thank you 

Mr Clatworthy
