  1. Class Curriculum
  2. Class 1 -
  3. Remote Learning

Please look at Class 1 Photos page (below this tab) to see all the writing tasks you sent for Week 1  - Thank you so much for supporting your child and doing your own work at the same time - you are brilliant! 

Here is just some of the fabulous work class 1 have been doing at home/school during Week 1 - Well Done! 

Well Done for persevering yesterday - we had the same technical issues in school when the remote learning disappeared!!! 

Here is Margaret - the stick insect . 

Remote Learning 

 

This page has now been updated to fit in line with the school's Remote Learning Offer and to fulfil the Government requirements that they are asking schools to provide for Remote Learning. (10/01). 

Work for the day will be updated by 9am on the correct day so keep checking in. 

 

It is expected that all children (those at  home / those attending school) will follow the curriculum below on the identified days.

School will not be offering anything different from the curriculum below as some pupils will be in mixed year groups/ attending only 1 session etc per week. So it is expected that everyone will do the same lessons on the same day.

Work will be uploaded by 9am on the required day and families are expected to maintain daily contact (much easier with Google Classrooms as of 18th Jan). 

Non school attenders will receive a 10min Zoom appointment weekly to talk to their class teacher. These start this week - (watch out for your Zoom invite) as teachers are offering remote learning in class /supervising play/lunches/ attending scheduled meetings after school we shall not be able to rearrange easily. 

Please email just one document /photo or work asked for each day by 5pm for me to acknowledge/mark. (This will be much easier to do after next week once you all have your logins/training on Google Classrooms). 

 

Try your best! I know it is tricky with technology  - we too only have 2 laptops between 8-10 children in class 1!

That is all we can all do. Take Care and Stay Safe. We are missing you already ! Thank you for all of your support, 

Miss Barker

ONLINE SAFETY ACTIVITIES 5-7 YEAR OLDS

Use the link below to access some homeLearning activities connected to Online Safety

Thank you so much to all of you who sent me your writing task on Friday (I usually sort/mark etc on Sat night so I have seen all!). I have added them all to the website for you to look at. Please find them on the photos tab below remote learning on our class 1 section. Keep working hard , I know this is hard when most of you are working from home at the same time!

Please remember the safest place for everyone is at home - even if you are a critical worker! If you are working from home/ have a support bubble member for childcare then that will reduce the spread of this virus as we cannot guarantee social distancing at school in class 1.

Writing 

We are studying a new book this week  - The Queen's Hat by Steve Antony

 Mon

Today is all about prediction by studying the front cover. Follow the ppt in the file list above, below the White Rose files. 

Tues 

Today we get to read the book and see if our predictions were correct. This lesson links with yesterday's Geography lesson. 

Follow the ppt in the file list above. 

Wed 

 Today is a consolidation of yesterday as children should be quite confident now with the task. Pick a different landmark in London and write another sentence (reception), set of sentences including some facts (Year 1). Why not add a picture of that Landmark too. Look at the photos on yesterday's ppt slide and copy one carefully.

All reception should be able to try writing their own 'This is the ........'(help segment/sound out the landmark's name to write it just like you've seen on the end of the Phonics videos each day.)

 Thurs 

Today we will re-read the Queen's Hat and look out for the Butler. Also notice the 'wind' words. Collect more wind words ready for using later in our writing. Follow the ppt in the file list above.

 The Wizard of Oz (1939) - It's a Twister! - Bing video

 Fri 

Today is a chance to catch up, make sure you have completed all this week's tasks and keep them safe as next week we shall be starting to build up a narrative story of our own. If you are completely up to date with everything why not build up a word bank of movement words to describe how the Queen moves as she chases the hat around London.

Mon pm - Topic (Geography, compare/contrast places)

To help us get some background knowledge for our new book, The Queen's Hat, I've chosen a nice lesson from Oak Academy about London Landmarks. It is lesson 5 in a series but that is fine as it can stand alone. 

What are the landmarks in London? (thenational.academy)

 Mon pm - Design/Art 

As we are thinking about hats in our new story I've added the following.

If you want a challenge , children will need some help with measuring, then I thought you might like to make your own hat out of 2 sheets of A4 card/paper. Watch the youtube link and make your own. Once you know how to make the base you could decorate it, add a unicorn horn / ears - up to you! I would love to see any you make!

Friday Disco Fun ...!

During our last Lockdown, to keep our spirits up, we had a little challenge on a Friday to explore as many songs (usually from the past!!) on a theme which we could sing and dance to. Why not have a go yourself - it is great fun remembering hits from the past! Feel free to suggest some songs to us !

This week's theme -
