Resilence PSHE

This week in PSHE we are focusing on being resilient with our 'can-do' attitude. The slides are based on the story Zog which is in the English section. We would love to hear how you've been resilient.

Monday 15th June 2020
Good morning Year 1! Some children from Year 1 are starting back at school today so good luck to them! If you are still staying at home then there will still be plenty of work for you to be getting on with so you dont need to worry about that! ;o)
Some of our learning in Maths and English will still be linked to BBC Bitesize but some of it may not, as we really want you guys at home to be learning the same things as the children in school. So check on here to find out what the learning in English and Maths is each day.
Learning in the other areas will stay the same so you can continue to work on the #littlethings or you can use the BBC Bitesize topic lessons each day... or a mix of both!
Head over to the Distance Learning Maths and English pages now to find out what today's learning is all about!
  HAVE FUN!

Hello year 1

Hello Year 1!!!!

We hope you are all ok and are staying safe? We are all missing you guys and hope that you are not finding it too strange being off school and having to stay at home for such a long time! I'm sure you've all been VERY busy practising phonics, reading and writing and doing some number work, like counting forwards and backwards and adding and subtracting... ;o) ;o) ;o)
Remember that you have ALL worked SOOOOOOOO hard in Year 1 and you dont want to forget all the amazing things that you have learnt so far, so it really is important that you keep trying to do a bit of learning each day if you can in whatever way you choose!

Now the actual Easter holiday is here so it's time to do some fun Easter activities too!

In my house this week we have been making things for Easter. We have been practising measuring to make some Easter nests and an Easter cake, because EVERYBODY wants to eat chocolate in as many different ways as possible at Easter time! ;o)

We have also made some Easter cards and a chick picture to cheer everyone up. Jake practised his cutting skills to make his!

And - not very Easter-y - but we have also been reading lots of Elmer stories and have made an Elmer the Elephant out of a plastic milk bottle and coloured paper. Look for the pictures/ links to these activities and have a go yourselves if you fancy it! We are also adding some Easter English and Easter maths activities onto theYear 1 English and Maths pages for you to have a go at if you like.

Remember that you can send us an email to show us what you have been doing. We would love to hear how you are all getting on. Have fun!

 
ELMER!!!

Use an old milk bottle carton to make Elmer the elephant with squares of coloured paper and glue. Be careful and ask someone to help you with the cutting! Then you could read some Elmer stories or make one up of your own!!! Next time, we're going to make Wilbur ;o)

Get messy and make Easter cards!

Use yellow and orange paint to make Easter cards.

Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate!!!

Use your measuring skills to bake a chocolate Easter cake or some chocolate-tastic Easter nests!

Make this cracking Easter chick!

Practise your cutting skills to make an Easter chick from 2d shapes!
