Welcome to Year 1

Summer Term 2020

Our big question this term is....

How Does My Garden Grow?

 

 

 

 

 

 

This will be the final week for on line learning at home. We are planning for a full return to school in September in line with Government guidance.  Please continue to check the school website regularly for updates and details about returning in September. Thank you for your engagement with the on line learning during these difficult months.

Here is a message from our local library;

 

Dear all

 

I am delighted to announce that we have just launched a new Summer Reading Challenge website especially for children in Cheshire West and Chester. It includes:

 

  • Details of exclusive free online events, which include an acting session from Carly Thoms (who played Miss Honey in “Matilda the Musical” in Manchester recently), story time with Mama G, how to do “silly face” animations with Mako Create, dancing with Cheshire Dance, Noodle Performance Arts, the professional storyteller John Kirk reading The Twits and “how to be an awesome storyteller” with Simon Adepetun.
  • Competitions: each of which have the prize of a £20 book token: short silly story competition, sharing a happy memory of lockdown, drawing something silly and writing a book recommendation.
  • Soon to come will be videos featuring crafts and jokes.
  • There’s a great video introducing the website which is ideal to show for classes and remote school assemblies at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsD4vnBvcHk&feature=emb_logo.

 

And of course there’s also the national Silly Squad website where children can join to read books and get online rewards for doing so at www.sillysquad.org.uk.

 

We’re still working hard to get our libraries open as soon as possible. Storyhouse is reopening this Saturday, followed by Ellesmere Port, Neston, Northwich and Winsford libraries on the 13 July with revised opening hours. A further five libraries will be reviewed two weeks later.  The Summer Reading Challenge will be almost entirely online this year.

 

Children, as long as they have their parents/guardians’ permission, can join the library service online via this link. We have a wide and expanding range of ebooks available via this link.

This term we are going to be naming a variety of common animals and learning facts about them. We have been pracitsing different watercolour techniques whilst painting wild animals.

Read, Read, Read!!

 

 

Please read every night with a grown up at home and ask them to sign your book.

 

REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR READING RECORD TO SCHOOL WITH YOU EVERY DAY.

                                                                                                                                                                                                        

                     

 

 

'Phonics is a way of teaching children to learn to read quickly and skillfully.' DoE 2013. 

 

We are working hard to learn all our different phonic sounds. The children will be bringing home sound mats, words and games to support their learning in a fun way.

 

Please encourage the children to use these as often as possible.

 

We use 'alien words' each day to practise segmenting and blending sounds. These words are made up and really make us think about the sounds that we can see. 

 

                                           

Phonics ALIEN WORDS

 

                              

In numeracy this half term we will be learning about number, place value, addition and subtraction and also developing our problem solving skills. 

                 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

 

Number pairs

Play the number bonds game by bursting bubbles that make pairs to 10 or 20. You have to be fast!

 

 

Mental Maths

 

Play 'Hit the Button' to answer questions as quickly as possible. Have fun!

This is the prayer we are learning to sing and sign in Year 1 as part of our reflection of the Angelus prayer. 

Now you can practise learning the words and actions at home!
