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.

 
  
 Events that could be interesting.
  This is starting Monday 23rd March on his YouTube Channel.

Homework for children unable to attend school.

Each day homework will be set for those children that are unable to attend school during the current period. There will be one piece of reading, writing and maths set each day. If you choose to, in addition to the above, you can complete some of these non-scene based activities.
In the links at the bottom of the page there are a number of websites which have maths and literacy activities. The Topmarks maths has tablet friendly games. Oxford Owl has free E-books may of which children would have been bringing home from school. 
 
Ongoing tasks to support your children's reading, writing and maths.
With the sets of words your children we need to sound them out and say them. Only do a few a day as a regular practice activity.

Suggested Weekend Activities.

This weekend we want you to do something a little different.

Your fantastic parents have needed to become your teachers this week, so a great way to say thank you is to do something to help them.

Your task is to tidy you room up and put away your own clothes.

If you have already done this then your parents need to think of another task for you to help with.

On Monday, send us a photo of you being really helpful. We will look through all the photos and see how many we can put on the website.

Have fun.
