Hello Year 1!
Here you will find our next home learning pack I have made for you all. It’ll seem a little strange but we will be back together soon. I bet your parents are doing a brilliant job of being your temporary teachers!
You have received Pack 1 which was a paper pack. The rest of the packs will be emailed out and put onto this webpage every two weeks. If you need a paper version please contact the school.
Inside your pack you will find Maths, English, History, Science, DT and Art. Please also continue to practise your sounds. I have attached a link to sounds to print off or access in the home learning pack.
Parents please don’t panic, you are not expected to run the day like school. The children are only 5 or 6, so find it hard to concentrate for long periods of time. The school environment is completely different to home so whatever you are doing with your child, I bet you are doing a great job! I have enjoyed seeing the children complete tasks from their pack 1 but also loved seeing them complete their own tasks. You are teaching them useful life skills!
Normally in lessons the children will have a 15-20 minute input from me teaching them a new concept, showing them examples and having a go at examples together. Then for the rest of the lesson, the children will be learning in continuous provision on a task or completing an independent task at the table. Depending on the task, the children may need some extra adult support or prompting but usually they complete their independent task by themselves. Their independent task usually takes between 15-20 minutes.
For the research projects, the children will need support to research but should then be able to write sentences independently from what they have found out. For the reading comprehension, depending on your child’s ability they may be able to read it independently or they may need support with some of it.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any help or advice.
I hope you are all well! Miss Ballentine 😊
