Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

 

Dear Parents of children in Yr R and Yr 1,

 

We would like to start by thanking everyone who has been busy doing the home learning activities. We have seen some fantastic work on Dojo, and have been very impressed with the resilience and hard work shown.

 

As you know Yr R children will be returning to school on Wednesday 3rd June, and Yr 1 children on Monday 8th June. Whilst we will be encouraging all children to return to school we appreciate it is a difficult decision to make for each family. However, there will not be any new home learning activities uploaded to the website.

 

If you are going to continue to home school your child, here are a list of useful websites that we would recommend.

 

www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize (free)

 

www.phonicsplay.co.uk (free)

 

www.topmarks.co.uk  (free)

 

www.activelearnprimary.co.uk  (using your personal log in)

 

www.thenational.academy (free)

 

www.oxfordowl.co.uk (free)

 

www.twinkl.co.uk  (some resources free)

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw  (phonics videos)

 

We will no longer be using the Dojo system as a form of communication or as a system for looking at work as all teachers and teaching assistants will be working at school.

 

We thank you for all of your hard work and communication through the Dojo system,

 

Please take care and keep safe.

Wednesday 29th April 2020. 

Good Morning Year 1! 

You will see we have adjusted some of the pages, so that it is easier for you to find the tasks set each day. Under each subject folder we have created folders for each week. For example, for today's English task, click on the English page on the right then click on the 'Summer 1 Week 2' page, there you will find today's task. All tasks for this week we will be in folders named 'Summer 1 week 2' under each subject. 

Please refer to the overview I posted on Monday to see when tasks will be uploaded. We have also created a folder of some nice creative art ideas you can choose to do. Some days it is absolutely fine to enjoy a lovely creative crafty day! 

Please do not feel overwhelmed by the tasks we are uploading. Just pick and choose what to do each day! Even baking fairy cakes involves maths- measuring amounts, sharing, symmetry, etc! Learning can be fun and now is the time to enjoy it in anyway that suits your child. 

Hello Year 1! 

Please don’t feel overwhelmed with the amount of tasks on the website, there is no expectation for your child to complete all the tasks being set for home learning, we just want to provide choice for your children- just submit whatever you can achieve.’-see Key Messages for Home Learning document attached at the bottom of the page. 

Each day we will be uploading the tasks shown on the overview, found under Monday's date. We will also be putting on some creative art activities, just for ideas of things to do. You can pick and choose what you would like to do. 

Monday 27th April 2020. 

Hello Year 1!

This is what we will be uploading each day this week: 

Monday- Phonics/English/Maths 

Tuesday- Phonics/English/Science 

Wednesday- Phonics/English/DT 

Thursday- Phonics/English/Science 

Friday- Phonics/Maths/Reading comprehension

The reason there is not any Maths tasks on Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday is because it will be incorporated into our English tasks. This week in English we are learning about plurals- adding -s and -es. 

This week in Phonics we will be focusing on common exception words and spelling. 

Don't forget to continue to do 10 minutes of reading each day! 

We hope you have a lovely week and continue to stay safe and well. 

Thank you, 

The Year 1 team. 

Friday 24th April 2020.

Hello Year 1, 

We know lots of you have been accessing Activelearn to practise your phonics and read ebooks, which is great. We will continue to load books on there for you, however, we can't load anything higher than an orange dot book. If your child is on a higher colour dot book or you would just like to read more ebooks, you can access the website www.oxfordowl.co.uk. It has lots of the dot books on there for you to access for free! 

You can aslo access free audio books on the 'audible' website! 

Also, you can now access the Phonics play website, your children will be familiar with the games on this site, as we use it a lot in school. Just go to www.phonicsplay.co.uk and it provides you with a free username and password. 

At the bottom of the page, we have uploaded an overview for you, so you can see what we will be uploading each day. 

Today we have uploaded English, Maths, Phonics and Reading tasks for you to do. 

Thanks, 

Miss Bevan, Miss Scotcher and Mrs Prest 

Monday 20th April 2020. 

Hello Year 1! 

We hope you have had a nice Easter break. 

Over the next few weeks, we are going to be learning about the story 'Alice in Wonderland'. All of the English tasks uploaded will be based around this story. Our topic lessons will be all about 'plants' and this week your maths lessons will be about shape! 

We have uploaded English, Maths, Science and Phonics tasks for you today. Don't forget to send us photos/videos on Dojo! 

In the Phonics folder, we have also uploaded a copy of the 'Superhero Spellings booklet', as some parents have said they can not find their copies at home. We will not be setting any work around this booklet. However, when we are in school, these are the words that we correct the spellings of in children's work if they are spelt wrong. You could practise reading them and spelling them if you would like to.

Thanks, 

The Year 1 team 

 

Friday 3rd April 2020

Good morning Year 1, 

It is Friday!! Last day of homeschooling before the Easter holidays! 

Today we have uploaded English, Phonics, Maths and history tasks for you. 

At the end of the day today, we will be uploading 'Easter Activity Pack 1', which you will be able to find in the 'Easter' folder on the right hand side of this page. This Easter pack will have 5 activities in for you to do, if you choose to, over the Easter break. We will then be uploading 'Easter Activity Pack 2' on Thursday 9th April, which will again have 5 activities in for you to do. If you do any of the activities or any other fun learning tasks over the holidays, we would love for you to continue to upload your pictures to the Dojo site. However, please note that teachers will only be checking the Dojo website once a week during the Easter half term. 

Thank you, 

The Year 1 team

Hello Year 1. 

Today we have uploaded English, Phonics, Maths and science tasks for you. 

It is great to see so much quality work being completed. Please do not feel like you have to print off the worksheets, we recognise that it could end up being costly for you. You can copy out the questions or just read the questions from the screen and answer them on a sheet of paper. Obviously, if you would prefer to print out the worksheets, then continue to do so. 

Thank you, 

The Year 1 team

Hello and welcome to another week of homeschooling! 

We hope you are all well! 

If you look at the bottom of this page you will see a new timetable for this week. This should help you plan your week. As you will see we have dedicated time each day to exercise. Try and find different ways to burn off all that energy! 

Today, we have uploaded Phonics, English, Maths, reading and science lessons for you to do. 

I would also like to set you an art challenge this week. Last week we had lots of lovely, bright rainbows sent to us and they really made us smile! This week I would like you to draw/paint a self portrait! This means I want you to draw a picture of yourself! Let's see who completes the challenge! 

Keep up all the good work! 

Stay safe. 

Thank you, 

Miss Bevan

Bonjour Year 1! 

Well after today that will be one full week of home schooling completed! We have received lots of pictures from many of you and it is clear you have been working very hard. 

Today, we have uploaded English, Phonics, Reading and  History tasks for you to do. We would also like you to do some exercise, either with Joe Wicks, Cosmic Kids Yoga or running and playing in your garden! 

We would be really pleased if you either read your colour dot book, an e-book or another book you have at home. Don't forget to write it in your reading record and send in a picture. 

Keep working hard! Well done for this week! 

Thanks, 

Miss Bevan 

Thursday 26th March 2020

Hello Year 1! 

We really enjoyed seeing your wonderful pictures yesterday! They really made us smile, thank you. 

Today, we have uploaded English, Maths, Phonics and a reading task for you to do. Once again don't forget to have a little fun and join with Joe Wicks or do some Cosmic Kids Yoga. 

We have also put another little science experiment on the website if you would like to have a go at that! 

Keep up with all the good work! It has been amazing so far! 

Thanks, 

Miss Bevan

Wednesday 25th March 2020

Hello Year 1! 

We hope you are all still well. We have been super impressed by all of the wonderful work you have been uploading. Keep up the good work up! 

Today, we have uploaded English, Maths and Phonics tasks for you to do. We would also like you to do a bit of history learning, by doing some reading about Neil Armstrong and his landing on the moon (if you haven't already done so!). 

Miss Bevan would also like to set you a challenge. We would love it if you drew/painted/created us a picture to brighten up our days at home! We love seeing your lovely art work when we are at school and we are missing it! You can make a picture of anything you like. Maybe, you might like to make an Easter picture or draw some flowers. (p.s. Don't forget how much Miss Bevan likes dogs!). 

We look forward to seeing all of your lovely work again tomorrow! 

Thank you, 

Miss Bevan, Miss Scotcher and Mrs Prest

Good morning Year 1! It is another sunny day here in Southampton! 

Please look at the bottom of this page to find the Year 1 timetable we have uploaded to help you. 

Today, we have uploaded English, Maths, Phonics, and a DT lesson for you. Once again, don't forget to do the Joe Wicks P.E. lesson at 9am to get in your daily exercise. 

Everyday we will also be uploading some reading tasks you can do. Have a look under the 'Reading and Books' tap. It is really important children continue to read everyday. You can either read a dot book, read an e-book or have a go at one of the reading tasks we are uploading for you. 

Also, you can upload your work onto the Dojo portfolio so your teacher can have a look at your hard work! Well done to all of you that completed yesterday's lessons. 

Thanks, 

Miss Bevan, Mrs Prest and Miss Scotcher

Good morning Year 1! 

Today, we have uploaded English, Maths, Phonics and a science lesson for you to do. The English task should take about 1 hour. The Maths and Phonics about 20 minutes each and then you have a super fun science experiment to complete! Don't forget to do some exercise too, to burn off some energy. The Joe Wicks PE lessons online, are a great way to ensure you are getting your P.E. fix. 

This might be useful: if your child is worried about coronavirus, this book has been produced by an intensive care nurse at Southampton General Hospital to help explain things to them:

We will put new lessons on again tomorrow!

Thanks,

The Year 1 team! 

P.S. Please get your parents to check their junk email as some of the class dojo invites that we have sent might have ended up there...

We hope that you are all keeping well if you are at home - we are all missing you at school!

We have put together some ideas for you to work on together at home.

Please feel free to send us pictures of some of your work via Dojo.
