Good morning everyone
Yesterday I went into school and Mr Dixon-Gogh and I sneaked something out of the 'The Dressing Up Box' when no-one was looking! Can you guess what he put on?
I will put some more resources on here today, so check again later.
We have a new page called 'Home Learning' where I will hopefully be able to upload bigger video files in the future; so far I could only make a very short clip.
Please keep emailing me photos and any requests for help or further resources.
Hello Class 1
It is Monday morning again and here we are back at Home School.
Let's start with the register, and then we can have a run, a dog walk. a pony ride. a bike ride or a workout with Joe Wicks!
This week we are thinking about new life; all around us Spring is bursting forth-green shoots appearing, leaf buds opening, blossom on the cherry trees, birds singing and spring flowers growing in our gardens and out on walks. I am starting a 'Nature Table' at home where I will display all my Spring nature finds - Millie found lots of 'Spring Things' in her woodland area last week. Ted found two nests and spotted a woodpecker, Eleanor went on a Spring listening walk, Martha has adopted an orphan lamb and many of you are planting seeds. It is my favourite time of year! Maybe you could set up a 'Nature Table' too?
One of your Spring Challenges is to make a Spring Journal; I wonder how you will do it?
It's Friday! The first week of 'Home School' is coming to an end. You have all done so well. I am very proud of you all and I think you should give yourselves a 'marshmallow clap'!
If you have made a museum in a box display maybe present it to your family today; make a poster with the date and time, try using a 'querty' keyboard on the computer-mummy can show you how to type your name, then the alphabet then the title of your exhibition.
I am putting together a slide show using the photos that mummy has emailed to me. Please could Toby send me a couple of photos? And Keenan and Abi too? It would be nice to see you smiles! And also Poppy, if you're not too busy baking bread with daddy can you send me a photo too? It was lovely to see Nellie in school on Wednesday, but if mummy or daddy could send me a photo of you reading at home that would be fab!
Look out for the pictures this evening; and I will put the next lot of support materials up for next weeks home learning before Monday.
Love to you all x
Good morning everyone! The sun is still shining and the earth it keeps turning! I am very impressed with all of your Home School work-thank you for sending me photos; you're all doing a grand job! Today is Thursday Think-day so I have put a link to a 'Brain Gym' video for you to do (crossing the mid-line exercises). When you know the moves just use it on audio!
I was in school yesterday to see how the tadpoles were doing. The are very wiggly now and they need thin slices of cucumber to eat. They are herbivores to start with but turn into carnivores when they get their legs! Maybe you could find some frogspawn in your garden pond and set up a tadpole tank? You can find out how to care for them online.
There is also a couple more maths ideas below: did you enjoy your 'Smarties' maths?
Lots of love from Mrs Kelsey xxx
Good Morning Class 1
Lovely to message you all today! Hope you had a great day yesterday taking turns to be the teacher with mummy or daddy! Please send me a message and a photo of your day. Enjoy starting Tuesday Snoozeday with some action songs-start with 'Brand New Day' (audio file below) and then 'Head, shoulders. knees and toes' and any more you can think of!
There is a link to more songs from Out of the Ark below too.
love from Mrs Kelsey.
I took a photo of Stan on his walk yesterday.
Hello Class 1
Week beginning Monday 23rd March
It's time to start our Home Learning challenge! How exciting to play schools at home!
As it is Monday I hope you have all started the day with a run-choose a circuit of the garden and remember to time yourself as you will get faster week by week! Pump those arms as you sprint; feel your heartbeat afterwards.
Maths-practise your 'whisper counting'/counting in twos; watch an episode of 'Numberblocks'!
This week we are measuring using non-standard units. Choose a suitable unit of measure for what you are measuring; see Spring 2 Maths pack page 1. Find out how long a dinosaur is and measure it in strides, not paperclips!
Reading and Writing
Try to engage your child with the content of each ditty/storybook using role play and small world toys; eg
Red group 'Pin it on' ditty book; make your own version of the game and play it!
Purple group 'Ken's Cap' set up your toy diggers in a sand/gravel tray.
Pink group 'Scruffy Ted' find similar soft toys from around the house and role play bedtime.
Introduce the story, then follow timetables (see documents below)
In the lined exercise books practice letter formation, recall of sounds and writing words-a little every day.
