I am looking forward to speaking to you all over the next couple of days.
Here are the codes to access the google meets. Please make sure you have a google account and are logged in ready to go. You will be taken to a waiting room and I will let you in to the meeting.
Hello and welcome back to your homework for this week. I am impressed with how well you have settled back into school and the routines we have here. Well done you!!
Don't forget it is so very important to read and talk about a book EVERY DAY!!
Remember on day 1 you may wish to look at the front cover and the blurb and make a prediction about what you think the story will be about. Then, on day 2 you could read the book and think about why events happened. Finally, on day 3 you could recap the book and discuss your favourite parts or sequence the story. Reading is about so much more than just being able to read the words on the page, we need to understand them too!
Let's have another brilliant week year 1!

I am so excited to see you all on Monday, here are your LAST activities to do at home. Don't forget to send them over to me!!
Here is your last online phonics lesson to complete. I cannot wait to see how well you are doing with your phonics and reading!!
Here you are going to look at all the letter combinations for the oo/u-e sound.
English: To write a simple sentence using the suffix -ed.
On Wednesday you practised using the -ed suffix to turn words into the past tense.
Today you are going to use some of those words, or any others you wish to use, to describe what the children did in the book.
The children climbed into the house.
Can you write a couple of sentences to describe what the children in the story did using the -ed suffix? How many sentences can you write?

SEE YOU ON MONDAY ?
Miss Kennedy x
Happy World Book Day!
Today is world book day! This is going to take a very different structure to what we are used to in school. But, we are going to have a day off timetable (apart from maths).
We usually dress up as your favourite character from a story but you do not need to do this at home, however, if you do wish too, I would love to see your fantastic outfits!
We will begin today with a story, this one is one of my favourites:
Now its challenge time!
Here are two creative challenges for you to choose from, please only do one, but it is nice to have the option! We will celebrate your creative pieces in tomorrow blog, so please send them over to me as soon as possible.
Option 1: Paint a potato
Decorate a potato as a character from a book using paint. Be as inventive as you like. The potato does not have to be a character. It can be an object or scene or setting from a book Please challenge yourself. Take a look at the pictures to get ideas.
Option 2: Anything egg box
Use old egg boxes to create artwork based on a book. This can be a character which is the obvious choice but challenge yourself to be creative with your ideas. In one example here, an old egg box have been used to create the backpack from the front cover of The Boy at the Back of the Class.
You could also, if you have time, listen to another one of my favourite stories, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, and complete the activity booklet below.
Maths: To measure lengths and heights
Today you have another practical activity to help you explore different lengths and heights.
Follow along with the lesson here
What objects around your house can you use to measure with?
Using blocks or something similar, can you measure the length of your cutlery?
Now find some other objects to measure. What will you use to measure them with? Remember they need to be the same size!
Have fun exploring!!
I hope you have a wonderful world book day! Can you share your favourite story with someone at home?
