Home Learning - Summer Term 2 - Week 5

Hello Squirrels.  I hope you are all o.k and working hard at home.  The Oak National Academy link for your learning and the slides that you may need for your maths are below.  It looks like you will be continuing to learn about the oceans and sound this week.  In literacy you will be building up to write a set of instructions.  I wonder if you can remember all the things we learnt about instructions in school?  Don't forget to keep sending me your learning.  I love to see it.

Home Learning - Summer Term 2 - Week 4

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!

Hi Squirrels.  I hope you have been enjoying the lovely sunshine this week.  Have you noticed how the parks and gardens have changed now that we are in the season of Summer?  The Oak National Academy link for your week is below.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/schedule-by-year/year-1/

It looks like this week you are going to find out about a few more explorers and learn some Spanish words to name the members of your family. 

I really miss seeing all of you, so don't forget to send me photos of your work and write and tell me what you have been up to.

Home Learning - Summer Term 2 - Week 2

Hi Squirrels.  I hope you are all looking after yourselves.  Here is the link to the Oak National Academy work for you to follow this week.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/schedule-by-year/year-1/

It looks like you will be writing a story and learning about some famous explorers.  Can you think of the names of 2 explorers we looked at back in September?

I have put the pdf files for the maths below - there doesn't appear to be any maths on Tuesday - perhaps on that day you could use the topmarks website to play some maths games.

Don't forget to send me an email to let me know how you are getting on.

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. I hope you are all well and still working hard at home.  Are you still doing your 5 reads?  Thank you for all the photos you have sent me last week.  I have seen some lovely butterfly poems and observational drawings of flowers.  I'd really like for our class to win the purple mash/spelling shed or sumdog competition this week, so make sure you are all doing the 'to do's' on the purple mash site.  Here are your activities to do at home this week.

Hi Squirrels.  Welcome back to week 3.  I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Thank you for your emails to show me your work.  It's lovely to hear from you.  Our class won the best class for going on Spelling shed this week.  Well done all of you that took part.  There are new purple mash 'to do's' on their website for you to do as well.

This week's home learning is below, but I also need you to do me another job.  I need a picture of you for the front cover of your report.  Please can you draw a picture of you - just your head and shoulders - in a box that is 5cm wide and 6cm tall.  Colour it in.  Then take a photo of it and email it to me.  Then I can add it into your front cover.  

This Friday is Victory in Europe day.  There are a few activities this week for you to learn a bit about why the country will be celebrating it.  I'd love to see photos of how you are celebrating it at home.

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!

Hi Squirrels!  I hope you have had a relaxing Easter holiday and have kept busy and healthy.  I have loved getting emails from some of you over the last couple of weeks to share your learning.  I have seen some lovely writing and maths and some great photographs of you doing other activities.  I hope you are still reading lots!  Here is a suggested timetable for you to follow for the next week of home learning - each day there is a little bit of literacy, maths and some topic work to do.  Don't forget there is also the work on purple mash, spelling shed and sumdog too.

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.
