Good Morning Year 1
I hope you are all managing to get outside a little in this lovely sunshine. It feels very strange not to see you all and hear about what you have been up to! We have been spending some time in the garden and taking our dog 'Buster' for a walk in the fields whenever we can.
I was lucky enough to spend a day in school yesterday with a few lovely children from different classes. They did plenty of work but had lots of time to play too! At home, it can be a little tricky to get my boys to do as much work as I would like them to but I am hoping to get better at this!
I hope your parents are enjoying working with you at home and that you are enjoying this too. Remember that you will need to show them how to do some of the tasks that Mrs. Jennings and I have set!
We would love to hear from you about what you have been doing or see photos. Please ask your parents to send emails to both of us to make us smile!
I am missing seeing you all!
Good morning parents too!
I hope that you are all managing to enjoy some of your time at home during these strange times. I am hoping to update tasks for the following week on a Thursday (dependent on whether I am in school on that day or not). We are aware that there can be a lot of printing out of tasks involved and we will try to send some web based and practical tasks too. I have put some 'to dos' on Purple Mash for the children to have a go at and they can hand these in for us to have a look at.
There is so much being offered online at the moment for home learning and we will try to share useful sites with you as we come across them. Please email us with any you have found useful too and we can pop them on the website for others to use.
Stay safe, and we will look forward to welcoming you all back into school soon.
THIS WEEK'S SPELLINGS
Rainbows group: food, pool, moon, soon, zoo, book, took, foot. wood, good
Superheroes group: as above
This week, we would like you to look at the activity on the 'phonicsplay, site looking at alternative spellings for 'ee'. Click on the link to open the online activities.
The attached documents below can be printed off for the children to complete their own investigations. We would suggest that the children have a go at highlighting all the 'ee' sounds on the phoneme spotter story sheet before looking at the on screen version which gives the answers! We have worked on similar activities in class so the children should have a good idea of what they need to do!
Then have a go at the word sorting activity - copy the words from the sheet onto the sorting grid. This can also be done using the interactive activity.
Finally, they can think about which spelling is used the most in their investigation and then look at the 'Best bet' sheet to compare.
Encourage plenty of play on the Picnic on Pluto activity 'Obb and Bob' which revises work within Phase 3 and Phase 4. Parents can select a group of sounds to work on or try the activity using all sounds from within these phases.
Have a go at the tasks on Activity mat 1.
