Year 1 Home Learning 2021
Welcome to your home learning page.
Here I will be sharing worksheets for your child to complete, along with PowerPoints and videos to help you along the way.
I aim to make this lockdown journey as fun and engaging as possible, working to stay connected and laugh as we learn!
For the majority of the time, I will be also be teaching our key worker children in school, so will try my best to keep the whole class connected as well as trying to provide a similar learning experience for both groups of children.
We will be holding 2 weekly zoom sessions every Thursday and Friday - Thursday's for activities and PSE, Friday's for our weekly celebration assemblies.
Please continue to communicate through Class Dojo, too.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
Just Dance/Go Noodle/5-a-Day Videos
Below is a link to a Just Dance video. We usually do a clip like this during the day to get the children active between activities. I will try to post daily videos just like this one that we tend to do in class. Maybe you can send in requests from your child via dojo.
Maths Home Learning 11/1/2021 - Counting in 10s
This week, we are focusing on counting to 100 in tens. I will be posting practical and written tasks to complete over the course of the week. If your child manages to learn how to do this before Friday's zoom assembly, why not send in a video of them doing so and I will give them a special message during our assembly as well as awarding them a dojo.

Welcome to the Year One page of our website.
The Year One team consists of Mrs Dagens, Mrs Jones, Mrs Harrison, and Mrs Duffy (and the children of course!).
On a typical day, we start with guided reading. While one group reads with Mrs Dagens/Mrs Jones, another will read with Mrs Harrison and the rest of the class work independently on a range of phonics, handwriting or reading activities. After that, we take an English lesson, where we explore different stories, texts and poetry and try our own hand at writing. It can be a lot of fun!
During break time, we have a good chance to run around, play with our friends and have a drink and a snack - very important if we want to concentrate during lesson time.
After break, we focus on our mathematics skills, such as counting and recognising number facts. Then, before lunch, we have our Letters and Sounds session where we use our phonics skills. It's very important to know the building blocks of English if we are going to become excellent readers and writers!
For lunch, we sit with our friends and either enjoy the food prepared by the lunchtime staff or our own packed lunch. We also play out and make use of the school equipment.
After lunch, every day takes a different path, learning about Jesus through RE, art, history, science, PE and many other wonderful things.
At the end of the day, if there is time, we will do Show and Tell or listen to a story. We're pretty tired by then, so it's nice to see mums or dads and go home for our dinner.
Here are the sound mats which are used by the children to support them with their spelling in class.
