Year One is such an exciting and busy year! The children
work extremely hard throughout the day covering a number of different subjects linked to our exciting topics. They also have daily phonic sessions through Read, Write, Inc. along with Power of Reading where we look in depth at different texts. We also have maths sessions daily where the children learn a range of mathematical concepts and develop their problem solving skills. Each week we have two sessions of P.E. These are normally on the same days but please ensure your child has their full P.E. kit in school at all times.
Changes to online learning
We have listened to what parents have said about the setting of school work, and for the next week we will direct you to the BBC bitesize website for your home learning.
This has been trialled in some year/maths groups and the response has been very positive.
Each day, you will be given English, Maths and another subject (for a bit of variety). You can choose which order you do the subjects in. Teachers really like to see your work and read your emails so please try to check-in at least once a week using your year group email (Remember to label the email with your teacher’s name).
Many of the teachers will be in school or getting things ready for school from now on, but if you need help with your work during the school day Mrs Douglas and Mrs Macias will be online to help you.
You can still contact Mr Davis and Miss Parsons using the year group email. However, as they will be doing other things for most of the day, you may need to wait a little while for them to reply. They are still very keen to see photographs of the lovely things you are doing at home and to just to catch up on how you are feeling.
1. Go to the website. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons
2. Scroll down to choose the correct year group’s work
3. Attempt the work for the correct date.
4. When you email the with your homework today (Wednesday), can you please also let us know how you feel about the online worksheets from before half term and the BBC bitesize this week. Just a quick sentence to say which is best for you. On Thursday we will look at all the emails about the work from the whole school and decide what is the best going forward.
