Good Morning Year 1 laugh


Thank you for sending me lots of lovely updates on your learning by using your SEESAW accounts, it is really nice to hear your voices, see your videos and look at pictures of your amazing work. I can't wait to see what super work you complete today with your grown-ups, keep working hard! I am so proud of how hard you are working! 


ZOOM TOMORROW (Thursday 4th March) 10 - 10.45am 

This will be a reading focused meeting, come along and share your reading book with me and your friends. This will be a group session where I will let you in and you can listen to eachother read and take it in turns to read to me and show me how amazing your reading is now! I can't wait to hear your fabulous reading! It does not have to be your school reading book you read, it could be your favourite story you have at home. I will even read to you a story (or 2) if we have time. 







In the video Miss Martin and George will introduce you to a new phase 5 sound each day and re-cap the phase 3 and 4 flashcards. For the lesson you will need either a whiteboard and pen or a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. Enjoy! laugh

Miss Martin would like you to record any important or 'cool' facts you find on a piece of paper ready for tomorrow and Friday when we will write our reports. Below are some websites Miss Martin has looked at and thinks you will find lots of information about hot air balloons on. Happy Researching!

When you have finished researching, Miss Martin would like you to use the below sheet to plan your non-chronological report. Remember this is only a plan so don't add too much detail or you will feel like you are repeating yourself when you do the writing part tomorrow and Friday.







Using Purple mash

(Log in : Year1    Password: Year1)   Please notice the capital Y and no gaps.

or your own personal log in, if you can remember it.


On the home page, in the search bar type suitcase and once the page loads scroll down to the suitcase under the 'other' section on the page. Today we are going to create our suitcases from last week using purple mash.


Here is one I made to show you as an example.



Following on from Yesterday's lesson today we are going to create the design for our paper mache hot air balloons. If your balloon is dry after you have designed your balloon tmeplate you can apply it straight on to your paper mache.


First we are going to use the template below to draw and design the design we would like on our paper mache balloon. Here are some ideas from real hot air balloons to give you some inspiration. Rememebr to draw in pencil and colour in very neatly using felt pens or colouring pencils.

Now once you have designed your balloon and are happy 'if' your paper mache is dry and you are happy that it is strong enough and doesn't need any more layers adding to it you can apply your design to your paper mache. If your balloon is not dry or you hae added more layers, please wait until it is fully dry and strong before attempting this step.


Here's how to perpeare your balloon and apply your design, please watch Miss Martin's video below.
