A Message From Your Teachers...
Good Morning Year One. How are you today? I hope you have all had a restful and relaxing weekend at home with your families and are excited for a brand new week of learning. Thankyou once again for your amazing work and posts last week- it was such a joy to see them all. We also had over half the class complete their Online Big Maths Tests and Spelling Test using j2blast which is fantastic news- well done everyone! Please continue to post your wonderful work on the blog this week and I will continue to respond to it as quickly as I can. Don't forget you can also upload your work onto j2files where I can see it, respond and give feedback.
For this week, we are learning about Numbers to 20 in Maths, focusing on comparing, ordering and finding different number patterns. For English we will be concentrating on the the second half of our story of Not Now Bernard, using different reading questions and grammar exercises to help us understand more about the text. I have also added a brand new story time to the class page for you to enjoy- every day I will upload a video of a different story that you can listen to at the end of the day to finish of your day of learning. Listening to stories is so important and enjoyable too! As it is Monday there is also a brand new Joe Wicks workout- make sure you join in to get your daily exercise at home. If you love your learning and fancy an extra challenge I have added some information at the bottom of the page about the Blue Peter Youtube Channel where you can do lots of fun activities, watch awesome videos and even earn badges- wow!
Remember, if at any time you have any queries about the home learning or if you need any support, please send me an email to the address below - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a fantastic Monday!
