Ivrit work- 18.5.20
Shalom! I hope you had a lovely weekend with your family.
This week I am sending you a short PowerPoint quiz in order to check if you can recognise learnt letters. I am also attaching an online puzzle of the aleph bet letters for you to complete, and there’s a timer if you would like to see how quick you can be. I hope you will enjoy it and share your answers/results with me (you can email it to: email@example.com).
Shalom! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Please watch the video and practice saying members of the family in Ivrit.
Challenge: Can you draw a picture or print a photo of your own family and label it (e.g yeled, yalda, aba, ima, saba, savta)? I would be happy to see your work, so please email me your photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Polite notice: A reminder please to ensure the 4 pieces of work for each week are sent in throughout the week so I can provide timely feedback. No work is to be sent in after 3pm on a Friday as feedback is only able to be given during school working hours. Thank you for your understanding and support.
Dear Year 1,
Myself, Mrs Gearon and Mrs Garfen really enjoyed speaking to you all on the phone this week. Next week will be speaking to different children.
I have attached next weeks grid and work. I have highlighted on the grid the pieces of work I would like submitted for marking.
Carry on the brilliant work you are all doing, enjoy the sunshine and be happy!
Hi Year 1,
I hope you all had a lovely Pesach/Easter break. I had a nice break. I ate lots of matza and I got a new watch for my birthday!
I have attached this week’s home learning grid and all the attachments you will need. I will be making a few videos this week too so look out for them!
I am looking forward to hearing from you all and can’t wait to see all the work that you have been doing.
During the week you will get a phone call from either myself, Mrs Gearon or Mrs Garfen.
Don’t be shy! We just want to say hello because we miss you.
As always, please email me if there is anything I can help with.
Speak to you all soon,
From Miss Baker
Dear Year 1,
Well done for working so hard over the past 2 weeks. I know it's been a challenge and a little bit strange but you all did so well. Now it is time to have a little break. I am also going to have a little break! So I will talk with you all again on Monday 20th April and look forward to hearing about your Pesach/Easter. Keep well.
From Miss Baker x
Below is a link that will direct you to a website which has over 250 online stories perfect for Year 1. All the stories are colour coded and should link to the colour bands used at school. Please email me if you want to check which colour band is best for your child. It is better to access this link on a laptop/ipad rather than a phone.
Hello Year 1,
I hope that you all had a lovely week and weekend.
Did you see the random snow on Sunday?
On the blog this week you will find the Week 2 Home Learning Grid and all the attachments you’ll need. During the week I will be posting a video to explain the capacity activity and one video which will be a phonics lesson. I hope these are useful and that they make you giggle.
As always, just do what you can and try your best.
Please e-mail me throughout the week if you want to show me any home learning you are proud of, or if you have any questions for me. I always look forward to hearing from you all.
Read Write Inc are offering free online lessons to children and parents.
I came across a book called 'The Little Corona King' which has been written specifically for primary school aged children to explain about the virus. It is also beautifully illustrated. It is available on Apple Books for 50p! (see link)
Dear Year 1,
I am so proud of all you have achieved so far this year. It is a great shame that we can't learn and have fun together as normal for a little while... but don't worry! You can contact me by email (email@example.com) - I would love to hear from you and your adults about how you are getting on learning at home. I will also be sharing some videos here on the blog to help you with your home learning and (hopefully) make you giggle.
Finally, I have to say THANK YOU for the most amazing video that you made me. You put great, big smiles on mine and Michael's faces.
Please stay safe and well,
In writing this week, we have been reading and writing acrostic poems. We know that the first letter of each line spells out at word or message. We enjoyed writing acrostic poems about our names; families and animals! Some children even went to show their poems to Mrs Cohen.
In maths, we have started to understand place value. We have been using 'base 10' to help us place the tens and the ones in each number.
In geography this week we have kicked off our new topic all about The UK (and the world). We have learned the 4 countries of the UK, their flags and their capital cities!! Next week we will look at the continents of the world and the seas...
We are learning this rhyme to help us remember our number bonds to 10!
10 and 0 – Superhero
9 and 1 – Let’s have some fun
8 and 2 – Chicken poo!
7 and 3 – Pat your knee
6 and 4 – Shut the door
5 and 5 – Bees from the beehive
4 and 6 – Pick up sticks
3 and 7 – Clotted cream from Devon
2 and 8 – Shut the gate
1 and 9 – Feeling fine
0 and 10 – Big fat hen
14.01.20 - Geography
Today in Geography we learned how to read a compass. We then made our own. We had lots of fun doing this. We learned an acronym to help us remember North East South and West - Never Eat Slimy Worms! We enjoyed making up new acronyms too.
W/B 6th Jan -
Happy New Year!
This week the children have been learning about how to use non-fiction books. We enjoyed going to the library to find lots of different non-fiction books. In maths we have been learning about height, weight, speed and length. Next week we will focus on days of the week and months of the year.
The children have had a wonderful week learning about Succot. They loved working with their year 6 buddy to create the most amazing Sukkah's! We even had a special lunch in the school Sukkah where we could see all of our decorations that we made for it.
In English this week, we have read 'Malala's Magical Pencil'. We found it sad that Malala wasn't allowed to go to school which made us think how lucky we are. We enjoyed thinking about our own magical pencils and what we would draw if we had one. We may even make our own magical pencils soon!
We are continuing to learn new games to play in the playground and we are talking lots about how to be a kind friend in the playground too.
Next week is Anti-Bullying week! Please talk to your child about what 'bullying' is and how we can stop it from happening in school.
English - We have been learning about diversity and in particular about Mary Seacole. We enjoyed finding out facts about her and learning her story.
Maths - We have continued to build on our knowledge of finding parts and whole. We are beginning to understand addition and some of us are challenging ourselves to find lots of different ways to make one number e.g. 3+3=6, 2+4=6, 6+0=6, 5+1=6. We have also been practicing our ruler skills. Please continue to practice this skill at home.
Art - We have have been learning the skill of sketching. We all followed instructions to sketch a family using different strokes of the pencil, then our year 6 buddies helped us to colour in. Some of the sketches were better than Miss Bakers!
This week in English we have continued to practise capital letters and full stops. The children have written some fantastic sentences. We have also been learning how to sit nicely and comfortably at a table and we use this chant to help us: '1,2, 3, 4 are my feet on the floor? 5,6,7,8 am I sitting nice and straight?
In Maths we have learnt how to find the 'parts' and 'whole'. The 'whole' is the whole number e.g. 7. The 'parts' are the two numbers that make up that number e.g. 3 and 4. We will continue to practise this next week.
During daily exercise we have been playing lots of new games. Our favourites are 'You're Fired!' and 'The Pirate Ship'.
The children's first week of home learning was great! We look forward to seeing next weeks!!
9th September 2019
English - This week we are going to learn about capital letters and how to form them correctly. We know that sentences start with a capital letter. Soon we will learn that names and places start with a capital letter also.
Maths - We will learn how to subitise - this means seeing a number of items and knowing exactly how many there are without counting them!
Computing - We will learn how to log in and log out. We will also talk lots about keeping safe when we are online.
Friendship - We are having lots of time to talk about what being a good friend means. We know that if we don't like something someone is doing we can say "Stop I don't like it".
Welcome to Year 1
4th September 2019
We have had a fabulous start to the year.
English - We have written some class rules. We know that class rules keep us safe and happy.
Maths - We have been counting and recognising numbers to 20. We also counted raisins and then we got to eat them!
