Welcome to wild animal week! If you are learning from home we would like to remind you to practise phonics and read as often as you can.  Your colour band books are the best thing for you to read.  In addition to these however, we have uploaded some reading comprehension tasks that the children in school will complete this week.  In phonics this week we will be practising ‘hold a sentence’ activities, with a focus on spelling red words and words containing split digraphs. 

 

Your English tasks will stem from a variety of non-fiction texts and Mrs White has planned some wild animal activities from across the curriculum that I have uploaded below for you to use, if you wish.  Please also remember to watch the handwriting videos to help ensure that those of you who use cursive handwriting are joining accurately and that you are keeping your lower-case letters of an accurate and consistent size. 

 

For those of you at home, I look forward to catching up on the phone again this week and seeing many of you, as you reunite with your friends on Zoom.

 

Take care.

Update for children and parents w.c. 22nd June 2020

 

Welcome to Chocolate Week!  This week the children in school will be tasting different chocolate products and using the tasting chart to compare them.  The topic planning is uploaded below, along with some of the other chocolate activities and resources that the children in school will use in their learning this week.  I hope that some of you are able to use these resources to enable you to join in at home!

 

As always, I would like to reiterate that the focus for home learning in year one must be on phonics and reading.  This week’s phonics videos focus on reading words containing split digraphs and our English videos focus on making plausible predictions.  In addition to these, it is important to try hard to read at home regularly.  I have put three reading comprehension activities of differing levels of difficulty on the website.  It would be great if you could have a go at these this week.  The writing tasks this week will be linked to our story, however, they are slightly shorter tasks, as I know how hard some of you worked to produce your amazing pirate stories last week!  Please remember that handwriting is a very important skill that requires practise.  The handwriting videos are uploaded further down on this page.  The children in school will be working on the ‘l’ letter family, with some children learning particular joins, depending on their individual need.

 

In maths this week, we are approaching the end of our fractions learning journey.  The children will learn to apply their knowledge of fractions (halves and quarters) when learning to tell the time on an analogue clock.

 

I hope you enjoy your learning this week, children.  I can’t wait for our Zoom meeting, when many Squirrels will be reunited once again. 

I will also phone all of the children, not currently in school, again this week but do feel free to call or email me with any questions in the meantime. 

 

Best wishes.

Mr Musgrave

Update for children and parents 15th June 2020

 

 

Ahoy there and welcome to pirate week at school.  This week Miss Ukena has planned some pirate themed history, geography, art and PSHRE activities that the children in school will complete in the afternoons.  I have uploaded the planning for this so that children at home can complete these activities too if they wish.

 

In phonics this week we will continue to revisit reading and spelling words containing sounds from set 2 and 3.  Please see the videos and resources below.  Remember children, the most important things to be focussing on regularly at home are phonics and reading. 

 

This week’s English videos have been designed to inspire you to write your own pirate adventure story.  The reason for this is because we would like you to keep your writing stamina up, during your time off school, and therefore it is important to produce some longer pieces of writing.  Now that you have learned all of the writing skills you need in order to write a story, be sure to use the writing checklist to edit your writing once complete. 

 

In maths this week we will continue our fractions learning journey by learning to find one quarter of an object, shape or quantity.  It is important that children understand that one quarter is one out of four equal parts of a whole. 

 

In the afternoons this week we will also be explicitly teaching handwriting.  This is something that no matter what stage of handwriting development your child is at, it is always worthwhile revisiting.  If you would like to join us, please work through the ten handwriting videos, in order. 

 

As always, I have been thinking of each and every one of you and I am looking forward to phoning those of you who are learning from home. 

 

Best wishes.

Firstly, a huge well done to all those who completed their home learning last week.  This week, our whole school theme is ‘Commotion in the Ocean.’  I have planned some topic activities that the children at school will be completing in the afternoons.  These have been added to this page so that the children at home can complete these too, if they wish.

 

Phonics, English and Maths tasks and videos have also been uploaded to support home learning.  Remember to keep up the great work and read as often as you can at home. An equal balance of phonics work to help decode words and answer questions to support comprehension will ensure your reading continues to grow. Remember there are handwriting videos your child might benefit from watching and completing.

 

Please contact the school office by phone or email with any queries. I will endeavour to contact you back as quickly as possible.

 

Take care and have a great week,

Mr Musgrave
