Please contact Mrs Chiasson here if you have any queries or need help with your work at home.

You can use this form to ask Mrs Chiasson any questions you have about supporting your child to work at home.

Welcome to Year One!

Show Respect, Work together, Aspire and Nurture

Mrs Chiasson, Mrs Cresswell and Mrs Nicholson

 

Dear Year One Team,

 

I hope you are well and all looking after each other in these very worrying times. Hopefully, the lovely sunshine has helped you get through the first week!

 

As you know, I am adding some home learning ideas to the website for you to do at home each weekday. We really hope you will try to do some of the activities and help your child to continue learning. The most important thing is that you stay safe and appreciate the extra time together but please take some time to do the daily learning, whilst also enjoying some family time, perhaps playing games, exercising or doing fun stuff like craft and baking. Remember, simply cuddling up to read a story with your child will help them both emotionally and educationally. 

 

On a daily basis, we ask that you try to at least do the phonics and maths activities, alongside some reading (Using Oxford owls free e-library). You wiil see I have included suggestions for both academic and fun activities for you to do with your child. Many of the 'lessons' are internet based to ensure the least pressure on you, whilst you are trying to manage work, home and children.

 

Please record work, where appropriate, in the book provided. I would love if you could send me pictures of your child's activities or 'work' via the contact link, as I do miss them. I will reply as soon as I can. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.  

 

I have added some good websites and a possible timetable you may find useful, so please have a look. I find my own children are much happier when they have something to do, so please find a list of things your child might like to do at the weekend.

 

You are amazing, we can do this!

 

Mrs Chiasson

Children love routine and family time, especially in uncertain times, so here are some ideas for a daily timetable whilst you are home schooling.

Possible routine

Friday, 27th March, 2020

Can you design and make a box model Dinosaur? First decide what type of dinosaur you would like to make, then find some empty cardboard boxes, tubes etc. Design your model on paper, labelling the picture to show what you will make it with and how you plan to join the materials. Make your model, asking an adult for support with any tricky bits. Remember to use your scissors carefully. It would be great if you could send me a photo of your creation!

Can you make a dinosaur with a construction toy, such as lego? How can you join the pieces so the model is strong? Afterwards, look at your model, can you think of a way to make it even better?

Can you design a picture for your window? Perhaps you could go for a walk to see if anyone else has any pictures in their windows? (Remember to keep a safe distance from everyone)

Alien adventure

Still image for this video
This week began with a mysterious event; Mr Tranter was called into school and captured a UFO flying above our School, he also found a letter to some aliens. Year One decided to investigate. We gathered our clipboards and started our search. On the security camera's, we found images of a small yellow creature outside the entrance, we also found lots of evidence around the playground, including a crashed spaceship. We used our investigative powers to conclude that the small yellow creature was in fact Beegu. Since then, we have been enthusiastically reading the book Beegu and doing some amazing English, focusing on using adjectives. We have also been learning about space, including Neil Armstrong's mission to the moon. I can't wait for the children to write their own alien stories next week!
