Toy cars and a drive in cinema!
I put this information on Seesaw earlier in the week, however I thought I would pop it on the website too so you know where to find it!
On Thursday 1st April, Elephant class are going to have a drive in cinema as a treat for all of your hard work!
To do this you need to make a car toy to sit in (linking with our toy topic). You can make any type of car/vehicle you wish but it must be large enough for you to sit in it comfortably. Take a look at some pictures below from when I did this at my previous school for some ideas.
You must bring your car to school on the 1st April (we haven't got the room to store them before then) If you have any problems doing this activity please let me know asap as we want to make sure that every child can take part. You can contact me on email@example.com
Lockdown Home Learning -January 2021
A massive thank you and well done to all the Elephants and their parents for the interaction and work you have completed this week. If we work together any disruption to your child's learning can be kept to a minimum. I would like to share with you my plans for online learning with Year 1.
Based on government guidance, the children should have on average 3 hours of work a day. Remember, we are back in term time now and it is no longer the holiday. With this in mind, we have decided in school that pupils will receive the following education:
1) A Maths activity every day.
2) An English activity every day.
3) A phonics or SPAG session each day.
4) At least 1 foundation subject activity every day (eg: Science, P4C, Art etc)
5) In Elephant class- Reading comprehension on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
6) In Elephant class- Arithmetic on a Tuesday and a Thursday.
Other tasks may be put on SeeSaw from time to time, such as TT Rock Stars, and these are optional. If pupils can aim to complete the above each day they will be meeting our Year 1 objectives whilst we cannot be in school.
Some pupils have sent through pictures on SeeSaw of their reading or screen shots of their Reading Record. If you continue to send these through and record their reading as normal in their record that would be great. Feel free to send through pictures or messages about any extra learning or activities that pupils get up to. Whilst we cannot be in school it is great to see how pupils are getting on and what they are up to. Dojo Master, Star of the Week, merit badges and other class awards will be announced on a Friday morning as they normally would be in class.
Most SeeSaw tasks have a support video or slideshow which should be viewed before completing the task. This is the teaching bit and if you jump straight to the task without looking at these pupils can get confused about what to do.
As a school, we will be monitoring work carried out everyday. If the children do not do any work for two consecutive days, we will be carrying out welfare checks on the children. I appreciate, due to other commitments, you may not be able to support your child's learning in normal school hours and they will be completing work later on or at the weekend. If this is the case, could you please inform me so that I know not to worry about them.
Every other week between now and February half term, we will be doing welfare calls. During these calls, I will hopefully get to speak to the child and yourself and I can see how we are getting on and if there is anything further I can do to support home learning. I will send details of welfare calls next week via the school app and on SeeSaw.
Finally, please know that I will do everything in my power to make this as positive an experience for the children as possible but if there is an issue, please contact me through SeeSaw, the school office or email me –
Thank you for your continued help and support during another difficult period.

Each week our Year 1s are going to take it in turns to teach you at home a sound we have been learning in class. You will see and hear the sound, hear the phrase we use to remember it and see how we use our fred talk to sound out words. This weeks sound is 'ay' - 'May I play?' Take a look at the short video below.
Read Write Inc
In Key Stage One, we follow the Read, Write Inc scheme for phonics. Below you can find a list of the sounds in the order of which we teach them, alongside the corresponding phrase we use to help them remember each one.
Long term plan
