Online phonics lessons for Letters and Sounds
The DfE have made online phonics lessons available for parents. A new lesson will be available to access daily from Monday to Friday at the times allocated below.
Phase 2 recap
For children in Reception and Year 1 who need extra practice sounding and reading words such as ‘tap’ ‘cap’ ‘mat’ ‘pat’
For Reception children who can blend and read words such as ‘fish’ ‘chat’ and ‘rain’
For Year 1 children who can confidently blend and read words such as ‘stamp’ ‘chair’ and ‘green’
The online lessons are designed to cover new phonics teaching that that children would have received over the summer term had they been in school.
Hello, I'm Miss Brown!
I am now proud to be the class teacher in Year 1 - Koala Class. In Koala class we are all kind, caring and polite. Keep an eye on our class page to see what we're getting up to!
A Message from Miss Brown
Good afternoon Koalas, how's your Tuesday been so far?
Today I completed the Joe Wicks PE lesson for the second day in a row. I'm struggling to walk now! Have you been joining in with it?
Ordinarily we would be getting into our PE kits right about now for some outdoor PE to finish our day. If you can, why don't you practice throwing and catching with someone at home? How many times can you throw and catch the ball without dropping it?
It seems like forever since we did a maths lesson. How have you been getting on with the sheets we sent home? They had a mixture of things that we have already covered this year. If you want to continue learning and look at some new maths with your grownups, head to Home Learning at White Rose Maths - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
They have fantastic resources for you to use that will keep your maths skills up to date each day!
The weather has been unusual recently hasn't it? Last week I sat in the garden enjoying beautiful hot sunshine but when I woke up on Sunday it was snowing! Can you remember what we learnt about Winter and Spring in science?
Perhaps you can keep a daily record of the weather over the next couple of weeks to see how it changes.
Is it hot and sunny? Cold and rainy? Dry and warm? Are the leaves on the trees starting to appear yet? What kind of plants and flowers can you see? How does this change from each day and each week? If your grownups have fancy phones, they could even find the temperature for you to record each day!
I hope this gives you something to keep busy with for now!
Have fun Koalas, speak soon, Miss Brown x
A Message from Miss Brown
Good morning Koalas!
I hope you have enjoyed your first week at home, it's been unusual for me not to see your smiling faces every day!
In case you're beginning to run out of things to do, here are some fresh ideas for you to try at home:
Stay safe Koalas and I'll catch up with you soon.

Your child has taken home a learning pack today which consists of a Maths and an English booklet for their relevant Year Group as well as an exercise book with a project based task. The packs will support what we have already taught this year.
Please do not start these packs (unless your child is self-isolating). These packs have been prepared in the event that schools are nationally closed as a result of Government recommendations.
These packs will not be marked as passing them all back into school increases potential infection, they are designed to support student study at home.
Additional Learning Activities could include:
This term in Koala class we are learning about TOYS!
Old toys, new toys, our favourite toys and famous toys!
Ask us what happened to the teddy Dogger, in the classic story written by Shirley Hughes.
We will show you how to use an aerial view map to find toys that have been lost!
Talk to us about Toys in Space, and find out about the Hoctopize...
We can tell you what our favourite toys are, and the materials that are used to make them.
We know about some toys from different continents too!
Keep watching our class page for the arrival of our very own toys that we have designed and made all by ourselves!
