Welcome to Class 1
Online Learning - 3rd January 2023
Happy new year! I hope you have all had a lovely break and are ready to see what 2023 has in store. Below I have attached some activities that I would like the children to do on their online learning day (I have provided activities that also require no printing). Please send your child into school with this work on the 4th January as this will be filed.
Maths - watch the video on how to form number correctly (the children will be familiar with this. Children to trace numbers on worksheet or free write them onto paper. Reminder of a 'pinching' pencil grip.
Counting within 10 - ask children to find 8 teddies, 4 spoons etc. Worksheet provided as an extension.
Maths - I have provided you with the next worksheet in our white rose scheme of learning, counting within 20. If you are unable to print the worksheet, please work with your child asking them to find 12 teddies, 15 marbles etc. They can then draw these onto some paper and write the number next to.
I have also attached an extension activity for anyone who wants an extra challenge!
Phonics - flash card all of set 1 with your child both reading and writing. Jot down any that they need help with so we know where to support.
Phonics – look back in spelling books and retry spelling any that need improvements from spelling test. Also, recap some common exception words for Year 1.
English – either using the template or your own paper, ask your child to draw a day from the Christmas break e.g. Christmas Day, a trip out etc. Using their phonics, children to write some simple cvc words/ initial sounds of trickier words to describe their picture such as, dog, fun etc. Please do not correct your childs spelling e.g. Christmas dinner spelt dina/u is fine as this is phonetically spelt.
English – either using the template or your own paper, ask your child to draw a day from the Christmas break e.g. Christmas Day, a trip out etc. I would like your child to write about this picture and be able to read their work back once in school. Please ensure your child is reminded of the following:
Topic - We are starting a new topic this term 'Polar Explorers'. I would like you to research animals that live in a polar climate. Once you have chosen, I would like you to write the name of this animal, draw the animal and colour it in accurately (these will be going on our display). Year 1, I would then like you to write some descriptive phrases using adjectives to describe this animals e.g. polar bear - fluffy, sharp claws etc.
See you Wednesday :)
Start of term notes:
We are so excited to welcome your child into our class and look forward to the year ahead of us. We hope that your child is looking forward to the new year and aim that each child develops a love of learning and school.
We aim to encourage independence as an essential process of development. Please encourage your child to walk independently, carrying their school belongings, to join the line where they will be welcomed by Miss Mabbett or Mrs Dobson.
Please use your child's reading record as a form of communication such as reading log, or alternative arrangements for pick-up. They will be checked everyday and therefore, should be in book bags every day.
Miss Mabbett and Mrs Dobson
