Year 1 - task 8! Here is the list of our Year 1 common exception words. We aim for children to be able to read AND spell as many of these words as possible by the end of Year 1. A good idea would be to test the reading of these words and highlight one colour then test the spelling of these words and highlight another colour. This way you will know where your child is up to and what their next steps are. As some of us can already read and spell all of these I have attached Year 2s for you as well! 😊
How well do you know these words!? I challenge you to choose 5 words and use them in a sentence! Don't forget to write your sentences in your work books!
Remember! Sentences need ...
I've included our handwriting support sheet to help you alongside the sayings....
Year 1 - task 7! Before we broke up we had been working hard on recalling our times tables, in particular our 2s and 5s! I have put the links below to our favourite times tables songs so you can interactively join in with them as often as you want! 😃👍 Afterwards have a go on Top Marks - number splat where you can splat all of your twos, fives and tens!! Get your grown ups to take a picture so I can see when we're all back together again!!
After you're finished why not have a go at one of your Topic challenges? Find the sheet where you are matching animals to their habitats. For this you will need scissors and glue! To make it harder why not ask a grown up to cut out all of the animals individually like I did here! :)
Year 1 - task 6! Who has been watching the zoo's live feed today? The red pandas were so cute!!! Look in your packs and find your English sheet looking at adding the suffix -s or -es to make plural. Can you follow the rule and make these animals plural? One ostrich - 2 ostrich....
Do you fancy going to the zoo today?? Chester Zoo is giving us all a virtual tour LIVE! Explore in the comfort of your pjs in your own living room! As our next topic is all about animals it's well worth a watch!
Year 1 - task 5! Join us in getting our hearts pumping and bodies strong! P.E with Joe - Every morning at 9am!!
Year 1 - your forth task! Find your favourite toy and draw a picture of it! Don't forget to use the skills we have learned in class - thinking about the shapes in objects to help us to draw and shading using hatching, cross hatching, dotting, smudging and scribbling!
Here is a great example from Jamie-Lea in year 2 which she completed last year to give you inspiration!!
Year 1 - your third task! Our topic this last half term has been all about toys! Have a go at the following challenges to consolidate your learning!
Year 1 - your second task! Supporting children with their phonics development can often be daunting for parents! To see how new sounds are introduced I have attached a link to Read, Write, Inc online. Here, videos are being posted daily, teaching new sounds exactly the way we do in school! Definitely worth a watch and they are designed for the children to join in interactively! Have fun!
Read Write Inc are streaming LIVE every day this week and next week! This is a great opportunity for your child to stay in touch with the Speed Sounds and 'special friends'.
Please read the message below and follow one of the links.
Ask your child which teacher they have currently for phonics to match the set speed sounds!
Mrs Collier - Set 1 Miss Sharples - Set 2 Mrs Vickers/Mrs Holden - Set 2/3 Miss Ebdon - Set 3
(If your child is unsure please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible). Knowing which group your child is in will also enable you to choose an ebook at their appropriate level:
Mrs Collier - Red ditties/ Red band
Miss Sharples - Red band/Support with green books
Mrs Vickers/Mrs Holden - - Pink/Orange band
Miss Ebdon - Yellow/ Blue Band

Can you tell your grown ups these sounds and the mnemonics to go with them?
Can you read all the words containing these sounds? I have included real words and alien words!
How many words can you write containing these sounds? Can you write a sentence too? I have included an example my little girl did to help you! Remember to hold your pencil like this....
Year 1 - your first task! If you haven't done so already I would like you to make a rainbow to go in your window, showing support for our community. The message behind this is: "Stay safe: stay at home - the storm will pass and reveal a world even more beautiful than before!"
Year 1 Class 2019-2020
Support through School Closure
I hope you are all well and enjoying time with your families. This all feels very strange and I'm missing you all already. I was so proud of the progress you were all making and would give anything to have us all back together again to continue to watch you grow and flourish! The most important thing right now however, is ensuring that we all stay safe and keep our families safe too! Keep washing your hands while singing "Happy Birthday" two times! If you or your families get fed up of this I've included a few songs below that will also do the trick! Also stay indoors! I know you miss your friends but all of this will be over much quicker if we follow the rules. We can go for walks with our mummy or daddy but no going out with our friends or visiting their houses! A nice idea that you could join in with (and I will be posting as your first challenge ) is to make a beautiful rainbow picture and place it in your window. That way your friends can see your beautiful work whilst walking with their grown up. If you spot them you could wave at them through the window too! I will be posting regularly to keep in touch with you all and offer support, tips, ideas and challenges to help you and your families! I hope you find this helpful and look forward to seeing how you all get on!
Have fun, stay safe and I will hopefully see you all soon!

- If you're happy and you know it wash your hands x 2
