Summer Learning Pack

Summer learning packs have been set to support children in continuing to read and practise key maths and writing skills over the holidays. There are also ideas linked to our theme next term and outdoor exploration.

The activities are not compulsory as we know that there are many ‘fun’ ways to incorporate reading, writing and maths into the holiday period – from calculating scores in games to following instructions in recipes!!

So please just enjoy your holidays and use the ideas when needed.

In light of today’s school closure, you may wish to use some of the ideas for home learning.

Have a wonderful summer!

Well we made it and what a fantastic time we have had!
You have all kept us smiling and kept us going and we have had so much fun with all of you. We are very proud of what you have achieved and how hard you have worked, you are all shining stars!

We hope you have a wonderful summer and we will see you when you come back as grown up Year 2s!

Sports Week!

A great start to our sports week with our Euro 2021 5 a side football tournament this morning!
We had lots of fun and there were some very brave and skilled players!

Boccia

In the afternoon we had a go at playing Boccia. Boccia is a game of precision, skill, and tactics – get your ball as close to a white target ball as possible. Boccia’s played by people of all ages and disabilities. Internationally it is played by athletes with severe physical disabilities.

We really enjoyed it.

Zero Waste Day

We started our day by listening to a story from our school virtual library. It is called ‘The Beautiful Blue Planet’ and is a lovely book to share with your child to generate discussion about looking after our Earth.

Then Mrs Holland came to talk about the email the office staff had sent Class 1. They set us the challenge of finding different ways to recycle/re-use the shredded paper generated in school. We had lots of fantastic ideas and made them into a book on Purple Mash (Look in your child’s work folder – Class – Year 1 -.Waste Day). We presented our book to Mrs Holland during our end of day assembly.

We also had just enough time to make some pictures using pencil shavings.

If you have any other ideas to help us to recycle/re-use our shredded paper please let us know.

London Day!

We had a fantastic trip to London!

We did some sightseeing….

The Queen’s knickers and the Queen’s hat!!

We read these stories then created a new hat or a new pair of knickers for the Queen!

We made the Queen’s guards!

Our trip to the Theatre!

We enjoyed watching Aladdin the musical and had popcorn and juice in the interval!

What a week to end this half term!

Class one have continued to work incredibly hard over this last half term. We are very proud of all their achievements and their hard working attitudes!
We hope you have a wonderful break and we look forward to seeing you back for more fun and fantastic learning.

This week in Class 1….

Maths

We have been giving each other directions to get to a specific place. We used vocabulary such as right, left, half and quarter turns and gave the number of steps to move forward.

PE

We were balancing this week and had a go at partner balancing, using each other as a counter balance!
It was lots of fun.
