I would like you to try and draw your character on a piece of paper and label your character with describing words (adjectives).

Remember to use your phonics to sound out words that you do not know. 
Use the phonics/letter mats to help you. 

 

As an extra challenge see if you can use your adjectives to write some full sentences about your character!


Top tip: Remember to check for a capital letter, full stop and spaces between words for full sentences!

πŸ’–πŸŒˆPHSCE Topic - Staying safe and people who help usπŸŒˆπŸ’–

 

For this topic I thought it would be a really good opportunity to talk to the children about doctors and nurses and everyone else in our community who are helping us during this time.

Please see attached activity below -  sentences that the children can copy out onto a piece of paper and fill in the missing words of people who help us.

 

I think it would also be a nice idea to make a thank you poster for people who help us. The children can choose anyone who they think help us and keep us safe, nurses, firefighters, police, parents, teachers, waste collectors, the list is endless! Please email a picture of their posters for our class page.

⭐️ Year 1 News ⭐️

 

Thank you to all our families for your support over the past few weeks. We are really going to miss having the children in school.

Please continue to check our class page here and the Kids' Zone (KS1) page for weekly messages and updates regarding home learning resources and how to help your child to continue to make progress during our school closure.

 

The National Phonics Screening Check for Year 1, that was due to commence in June 2020, has now been cancelled. Therefore you do not need to continue to practise the 'alien' words as previously requested. Please can children work on their phonics and reading skills by using the reading eggs app, watching and joining in with the daily phonics lessons from Mr Mc (links on the Kids' Zone page for KS1) and sharing books together. 

 

If you need any support at all, or you have any questions, please email the office or follow and message me directly via twitter @misstaylorY1

 

 We are still here for you! Thank you :)

Exciting news for reading in Year 1!

 

Year 1 now have the opportunity to practise their reading skills and have lots of fun by using the Reading Eggs online games.

 

Click below link for more information!

Year 1 is an important and exciting year for the children. It is the first year of Key Stage 1 and a time where children become more independent as they make a gradual change from a play-based enhanced provision to a more formal style of learning.

Useful websites for interactive phonics games and videos

Picture 1
Picture 2

In Year 1, children will have lots of opportunities to practise their phonics, reading, writing and mathematics.

They will be able to investigate and answer questions through our science, history and geography topics.

 

Our topics include learning about toys from the past, discovering new authors such as Sue Hendra, reading Supertato and learning all about Florence Nightingale.

I am sure the children will have lots of fun as they learn.

In Year 1 we also love to learn in a creative way! Children will experiment with many types of media to express their creativity, including painting, drawing, building and using technology.

We will also introduce children in Year 1 to the Arts Award!
