Hello Squirrels.  Some of you may be finding that you need to stay at home and do your learning for a little while.  Below is all the links you will need for the learning and zoom links across the week.  Look at the link called Squirrels Home Learning first - hopefully it will all make sense.  You do not need to print anything off - just use the files as a template to copy or as a discussion point.

The most important thing to keep on doing is read!  How many books can you read in a week?  It does not have to be your school reading book - it can be an online book, one of your own books or an ebook.

We look forward to seeing you on the zoom meetings if you feel well enough.

Below is the home learning for the week and the files that you will need.  Don't forget it's World Book Day on Thursday, so we won't have a maths meeting that morning, instead we will be listening to a story and sharing our masks.  Try and remember to wear your mask to the zoom meeting on Thursday morning.

Hi Squirrels.  Welcome back to the 2nd part of the Spring Term.  I hope you've all had a lovely holiday with your families and found time for lots of fun and rest.

I know online learning was getting a little bit tiring for some of you before the holidays but hopefully we will only have to do this for a couple of weeks and then we can get back to learning together.  Keep going!  We are nearly there!

Your online learning activities and zoom links for the week are in the files below.  Remember there are no zoom meetings for our class on Monday 22nd.  

There are new purple mash activities being released tomorrow.  Don't forget to do a little bit of reading each day and practise your common exception words.  Wouldn't it be great if I had to move everyone up a spelling list when they came back to school?

See you all on Tuesday!

Hi Squirrels.  It's week 6 and the last week of this first Spring Term.   Thank you for continuing to join in the zoom meetings and sharing your work with me on email.  I love seeing how you are getting on at home.  I know it is difficult working at home sometimes and that you are missing your friends but hopefully this won't be for too much longer now.  

Below are the files that you will need for this week's home learning.  Remember there is a file in last week's home learning for those days when you really can't concentrate on the work we have set and need to learn in a different way.  

I hope you all have a lovely week and I look forward to seeing you on zoom.

Apologies!  I forgot to add the maths files.  Top marks to those that have spotted that this morning.

Hi Squirrels.  Welcome back to week 5 and the beginning of a new month.  Thank you for sharing your work with me last week and for joining in with our zoom lessons.  It has been lovely to see how you are all getting on. 

I know some days it feels really hard to do your learning at home and you might not feel doing any learning at all.  We all get days like this sometimes.  If you are having one of those days I have included a file in the file section below for some alternative ideas to do your learning.  You might be more interested in doing some of these activities for a change.

Have a good week, be kind and patient with your family at home, and don't forget to do your reading!

Welcome back to the Spring Term!  I hope you all had a good holiday and enjoyed your time with your families.  I am so sad that we can't all be together again to do our learning.  I am hoping that I will see all of you everyday on our zoom meetings - once in the morning for a maths meeting and once in the afternoon for a story.  This term we are going to try another chapter book - George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl.  It's a really funny story, so make sure you log on at 1pm every day to listen to it.

 

Below are the links your grown ups will need for you to do your home learning.  There is plenty to keep you busy.  I would love to see any fantastic work you do, so don't forget to take some photos of it and email them to me - harriet.fitzsimmons@st-barnabas.northants.sch.uk

Home Learning - Summer Term 2 - Week 7

Hi Squirrels.  I can't believe it's your last week of being in Year 1 - what a strange year it has been!  I have loved teaching you this year and am very sad I didn't get to spend the whole year with you.  Don't forget to come and say hello and show me your excellent work when you're in Year 2.  There are no Oak Academy lessons this week so I'd like you to do a mini project.  I want you to pick your favourite dinosaur and create a little book all about it.  Think about these things

  • What will be on your front cover and what will the title be?
  • What will your sub-headings be?  Pick 3 or 4 questions for your sub-headings - e.g. What did T-Rex eat?
  • What will you have on each page alongside your facts?  Will you use some pictures or labelled diagrams?
  • Will you use some interesting fact boxes? 

Use the internet or any books you might have at home to research the answers to your questions.

There are also some maths problem solving activities for you to have a go at.

 

I hope you all have a wonderful Summer holiday and I look forward to seeing you all in September.

Hi Squirrels.  I can't believe we are in week 4 already.  This term is going so quickly.  It's been a bit rainy and chilly last week but I think this week is going to be sunny and hot so make the most of the sunshine and enjoy some fresh air.  Don't forget how to keep safe in the sun though!

This week's Oak Academy lessons are based around writing an information text, learning about the Oceans, learning about how we hear and learning some Spanish to talk about how someone looks.  Fantastic!  There is some good problem solving in the maths and I've attached the worksheet slides below.

Don't forget to let me know how you are all getting on and don't forget to do your reading!

Home Learning - Summer Term 2 - Week 1

Hi Squirrels.  Welcome back to our last term of the school year.  I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable holiday.  Over the next term our learning at home is going to look a bit different.  Some of you are coming back to school for a couple of days a week to do you learning, although it will be in a different way than before.  Some of you are carrying on your learning at home.  

Your home learning for week 1 is going to be done through Oak National Academy.  These are lessons specifically for Year 1 and taught to you by Year 1 teachers from another school.  Everyday there will be an English and maths lesson plus a foundation lesson for you to complete.  All you need to do is watch the video and do what the teacher says.  The teacher will tell you what equipment you need before the lesson.  Just click on the link below.

https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-1#schedule

There will be no to do's set on purple mash but you can carry on using it and choosing which activities you want to do.  If you wanted to carry on from the spelling quiz's we had got as far as Year 1, Spring 2, Week 5.

I would still really love to see the work you are doing at home - it looks like this week you are going to be writing a poem and learning about the astronauts Neil Armstrong and Valentina Tereshkova.  Exciting!

If you have any questions, please email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

For those of you that cannot access the google slides on the Oak National Academy site, Mrs Thompson has been very clever and turned them into a PDF file for you.

Hi Squirrels.  Thank you for all the emails you have been sending me this week.  I can see that lots of you have been really busy at home. 

Well done to those of you that have been going on Purple Mash.  There has been a competition to see which class has the most users of Purple Mash and Spelling Shed and Squirrels class were the winners of both!  Hooray! Don't forget that when you use Purple Mash you need to go to the To Do section first (the red box at the top of the webpage).  There will be lots of phonics and maths things for you to practice in there across the week.

We love Picasso!

As part of our art work on portraits this term we have been looking at the work of Pablo Picasso.  We learnt how he chose his colours to reflect how his subjects were feeling.  He chose blue and purple shades to show sadness and yellow, red and orange shades to show happiness.

We drew portraits of our teachers and chose which colours to colour them with.

We Are Historians!

Today we enjoyed a visit from Wellingborough Museum.  They came to show us some of the old toys they have in their collection.  We enjoyed looking at the old teddies and dolls and comparing them to our own.

We Are Design Technologists!..

We enjoyed a Design Technology day creating our own robots.  We had to solve lots of problems to attach the body parts to our robots.  We learnt lots of different fixing techniques.  We thought carefully about moving body parts.

We Are Mathematicians!

We have been using our talk tasks in maths to explore addition equations using a part, whole method.

We Are Scientists!

We have been learning about the five senses.  We made predictions about what we could feel, taste, hear and smell and then saw if our predictions were right.

We Are Artists!

We have been looking at the work of the artist Henri Rousseau.  We found out that he never visited a jungle, and used the plants in the places around him to copy for his 'Tiger in the eye of the storm' painting.

We went to our park to look at the plants and the trees there and made observational drawings.

We are enjoying our learning outdoors!

We have been enjoying doing some of our learning outdoors.  We used the big number fish to practise our doubles.  We used the skittles to practise our number bonds to 10.  We enjoy reading stories outside.
