Good Morning Year 1!
I am pleased to say you've made it to FRIDAY! Do you know how amazing you are? You have made it to the end of your seventh week of home learning...Well done! You are certainly a class of resilient rangers, preserving when things got tough...And look you've made it to the end of the first half of the Summer term! Amazing! After today it's time for a weeks rest to relax and recharge ready for the last few weeks of the Summer term...We can do this!
I hope today you continue to work hard at home for your grown-ups. The updates I have received from you all so far have gone in a super picture gallery so look out for your pictures there! Please continue to send them to me and if you haven't sent me any yet...Please do!
Morning work: In your yellow maths pack please complete page 12 about naming 2D shapes.

Phonics: In your phonics buster books please complete page 33 about more letters with alternate sounds.
There are some great interactive games on the phonics play website for children to play and revise their phonetic skills. Currently, the website is free for parents to sign up to if you log in using the user name: march 20 and the password: home.
You could also play some different phonics games at http://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/literacy.html
English: Today we are going to round off all the amazing learning you have been doing during these few weeks. As you have been doing some amazing writing recently I thought you needed a break from working so hard and would enjoy some drama instead. Today we are going to be accessing Now Press Play from home and thinking about the story of Jack and the beanstalk. This takes us back to the vey first week of our learning this term and is a lovely way to finish off.
To access this you need to go to: http://nowpressplay.co.uk/learn-at-home/
Once on the webpage you will be asked for a password it is: nowpressplay
When you have logged in, please select the reception tab, you will see a tab labeled Jack and the Beanstalk. Click this to display today's lesson. Then when you are ready play the clip by pressing the pink play button.
In maths today we are going to have a flashback Friday, this is something we do most Friday's where we test the skills and knowledge we have learnt so far throughout the year. For today's lesson go to the BBC Bitesize website and challenge yourself.
There are two challenges on each page for you to solve and the answers are also there for you so you can self mark using your special marking pens. Good Luck!
Show and tell:
I would love you to send me an email telling me some of the things you have been doing and send me some pictures of you completing your work or enjoying the time spent with your families. I look forward to hearing all about your week!
Remember my Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Golden Time! - On a Friday afternoon in Year 1 we have GOLDEN TIME!
I think you will agree with me when I say that this week (just like last week) has been very different to the normal weeks at school, but more than ever I think you have deserved your golden time. Play, be creative, make things, dress up, tell jokes and let your imagination run wild....You are amazing Year 1 and I am proud to be your teacher!
End of the day story: The story I have chosen today is one that we have not read before in class. it is called 'Mog on fox night' written by Judith Kerr.
