Good Morning Boys and Girls, Miss Paul here.

We're nearly there. A little bit of home learning this week before schools out for the summer.   

To access TEAMS you will need Micorsoft Teams. This is available for PCs, or as apps on all smartphones and tablets. Either download the app or Google "Office 365", login to Office 365, then click on Teams.
Children will need to use their school account to log on. This is their Christian and Surname - with a dot between, and then the school's generic address..... so my log in is
paul.reid@st-john.lincs.sch.uk
The password is your child's date of birth - so the 30th April 1972 would be 300472. See if you can download and log on and then you will know that you will be ready. If it won’t log in and you have a 0 in your date of birth try removing it e.g. instead of 04 try just 4. If you still have problems with passwords etc. e-mail our parent@st-john.lincs.sch.uk and we will try and sort it out.
Please be aware that when we use TEAMS children (and adults) should be up and dressed, and you should be with an adult in somewhere like your lounge, kitchen or study. Not your bedroom. You should also be aware of what’s around and behind you - so that what everyone sees is appropriate and not anything that you wouldn’t want to be shared.

Class 1AC

Please note the TEAMS schedule for week beginning 13.7.20 and 20.7.20

Hello! Due to transition sessions and other bits going on in school, I am going to be doing phonics Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday this week and the last session will be Monday 20th of next week. There will be no session Wednesday this week. 

Also, there will be no afternoon TEAMS sessions this week. (Tuesday afternoon has also had to be cancelled, apologies!)

To access this you will need Micorsoft Teams. This is available for PCs, or as apps on all smartphones and tablets. Either download the app or Google "Office 365", login to Office 365, then click on Teams.

It will be so lovely to see as many children as possible. There is a 'mute' button and a 'hands up' button that we will be using as part of our TEAMS sessions. 

Any questions please do get in touch :-) 

I am loving receiving all of the hard work that boys and girls at home have been doing. I have made a display in the classroom to showcase some of your work! Please keep emailing your work so that I can add to it! 

 Daily activities:

  • Mental arithmetic’s - counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s, counting forwards and backwards, one more and one less than a given number up to 100, number bonds up to and including 20.
  • As we progress into the summer term the children would start to look at some of the alternative pronunciations and alternative spellings of graphemes. Here we have included the alternative pronunciations sound mat for Phase 5. In addition to this please see the ‘Supporting Your Child With Phonics’ PDF for help and guidance. 
  • Phonics – Here are the sound mats that include all the phonemes (sounds) and their corresponding graphemes (letters that make the sounds). In our phonics lesson we would go through these at the start of each lesson. We would then choose one grapheme and focus on reading and writing words containing that grapheme, can they write a sentence containing words that include that grapheme. Phonics Play is a great resource to use it can be accessed through your internet browser and has lots of games your child can play to help practice their phonics. You can choose to focus on a particular grapheme or revise all graphemes within a phrase. Zat Phonics Screening Check is an app that can be downloaded to your mobile device which helps children prepare for the phonics check but is also a great audible resource so children can clearly hear how a word should sound.
  • Common Exception words – practice spelling your Year One common exception words. Can you write them in a sentence?
  • This weeks spellings
  • Hand writing practice – ensure all letters sit on the line and are a consistent size (upper and lower case). Do the lower case letters have clear ascenders (letters that sit higher such as t, d, f, h, k, l and b) and descenders (letters that sit below the line such as q, y, p, f, g and j)? We have attached a handwriting practice sheet at the end of the document to help if needed. 
  • Reading – Oxford Owl are offering a free membership which gives you access to online e books - these books mirror lots of the book we would be using with your children.

Monday

 Today we are making and playing a game.

‘3 Card Trick’

 Make number cards 1-10.  Pick 3 cards and see if you can make a number sentence with it.

E.g If you pick 3, 4 and 7 you could say 3 + 4 = 7 or 4 + 3 = 7 or 7 – 3 = 4 or 7 – 4 = 3.  You would score a point for each number sentence you make.

If you cannot make a number sentence with your 3 cards then you have not made a 3 card trick and you need to try again.

See here.

 

Let’s recap rhyming words by watching this song

Can you think of words to rhyme with these summer words?

Tuesday

 

There are 6 eggs in a box.  How many different ways can we find to arrange them in rows, if there is always an equal number of eggs in each row? Investigate this by drawing arrays and writing multiplication sentences.

See here.

 

Use your work from yesterday to write a summer themed poem/s. Choose one of the templates or have a go at a few. The first one is a summer poem all about your senses. The others are acrostic poems, here’s a reminder of what an acrostic poem is.

Outdoor Learning at Home!

If you are going on a walk, exploring a local outdoor area or playing in your garden, you may like to have a go at some of these outdoor learning activities. Click this link to take a look at Mrs Llewellyn's suggestions!

Busy at home

 

Science

Lots of you have been busy helping with other jobs around the house and in the garden. Ellie and Iggy have been planting seeds and watching them grow while Evie-Mai has been experimenting with her toys to investigate if they float or sink.

Literacy

WOW! You're posters are amazing girls. It's a shame we're not at school to make a display, they would have looked amazing. 

Birthdays

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SCARLETT, ELLIE, EDEN, IGGY AND LUCY!

I spy with my little eye...

 

Some of you have had birthday celebrations this week. I'm sure it has been a very different kind of birthday but what a great way to spend it, with your family eating cake. I hope you all had the most wonderful 6th birthday.
