Class 1 Home Learning

You will find your suggested weekly timetables below which I will update regularly. Please do not feel you must do all of the activities in one go and feel free to adapt these activities to suit you and your family. I have also included a list of useful links for learning below. Have fun, and remember, the children may be just as stressed as you during this period of change, so if they don't feel like doing their maths one day, do not worry and do what you can.

Their well-being is paramount at this time.

 

In your child's home learning book, you will find all the relevant online log-ins along with a Class Dojo parent and child login (for Year 1 and 2) where you can share pictures of your home learning with me. With your permission, I can share them onto the class feed, as well as messages from myself, so that we can be inspired by our friends and their home learning journey and share ideas!

Mrs Lee would like for reception children to upload their learning onto Tapestry when you can, where she will be be able to track their activities and send messages to you and the children.

 

I thank you for your support during this time and Mrs Lee and I are available for advice and support via the office email, Class Dojo and Tapestry.

What wonders lie in the enchanted woods?

 

Our first topic this academic year is the 'Enchanted Woods' which will lead into a special exhibition day held for parents and children, all with the purpose of encouraging more children to explore the great outdoors and all its wonders!

 

We will be discovering the beautiful, natural artwork of Andy Goldsworthy, as well as looking at habitats and maps within our topic work. We look forward to displaying all of our hard work at our exhibition day and hope that you will be able to make it!

Leader in Me.

 

On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too. 

 

  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergise (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)

Growth Mindset

 

This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.
