Welcome to 1D

We are a Year 1 class and we have two members of staff: Mrs Deeming is the class teacher and Mrs Smith is the learning support assistant.

 

We hope you enjoy looking at what we have been learning about in class and out and about. We always have lots of fun! smiley

Good morning! 

Below you will find Home Learning for the coming week if you have chosen not to to return to school just yet. 

Remember to keep sending us photos of your work or activities to share with the class. You can e-mail to:

alison.deeming@racemedow.org

Home learning week beginning 13th July 2020:

Maths:

This week we are focussing on telling the time to the hour and half past. It would help if you could look at an analogue clock and be even better if you could move the hands around yourself to change the time.

As always, remember to watch the video to go with each lesson before attempting the activities and pause it at appropriate places. If you are unable to print off the sheets at home, you can just write the answers in your own way into your home learning book. Work hard and have fun! smiley

Writing - Wendy, Michael and John had lots of fun when Peter Pan showed them how to fly! What would you do if you could fly? Think about what you could see, where you would go and who you would go with? What might your wonderful thought be?

Science - This week we would like you to have some fun with shadows!

Ava has shared photos of her home learning this week. Her mum said that she had lots of fun.

Home learning week beginning 6th July 2020:

 

Maths:

This week we are focussing on finding half and quarter of objects and amounts. You will need some objects to count and split into groups for example: beads, pasta or sweets. It would also be nice if you had a cake/s or pizza so you can cut them into halves or quarters!

As always, remember to watch the video to go with each lesson before attempting the activities and pause it at appropriate places. If you are unable to print off the sheets at home, you can just write the answers in your own way into your home learning book. Work hard and have fun! smiley

Writing - This week we would like you to think about Neverland. What would you have in a land where no-one grows up? Draw a picture of your map and write sentences about what you would have in it. We look forward to seeing them!

Ava has sent us some brilliant photos of her home learning this week. Thank you Ava.

Home learning week beginning 29th June 2020:

Maths:

This week we are focussing on ordering numbers and money. You will be learning to recognise the different coins and notes that we use in the United Kingdom and how much they are worth. It would be helpful if you could see real money as well as looking at the pictures.

As always, remember to watch the video to go with each lesson before attempting the activities and pause it at appropriate places. If you are unable to print off the sheets at home, you can just write the answers in your own way into your home learning book. Work hard and have fun! smiley

Writing - hopefully you have managed to watch Peter Pan so you will be able to write about some of the characters. You don`t have to print this sheet,, you can write in your yellow books. Remember capital letters, finger spaces and full stops ;0)

Art DT - this week have a go at creating a headdress like Tiger Lily`s dad, a teepee or a prayer stick! We look forward to seeing the pictures you send us!

Ben has been very busy with his home learning and has managed a family walk too. Excellent work Ben. Thank you for sharing the photos.

Writing home learning. Week beginning 22.6.20.

Maths:

This week we are focussing on numbers to 100 – counting, partitioning into 10s and 1s and comparing numbers. As always, remember to watch the video to go with each lesson before attempting the activities and pause it at appropriate places. If you are unable to print off the sheets at home, you can just write the answers in your own way into your home learning book. Work hard and have fun! smiley

This week's school challenge is a basketball one. Have fun.

Maths:

This week we are focussing on making arrays, doubles, grouping and sharing. It would be useful if you had something for the children to work with instead of cubes for example coins, buttons, pasta, beads or even sweets! As always, remember to watch the video to go with each lesson before attempting the activities. If you are unable to print off the sheets at home, you can just write the answers in your own way into your home learning book. Work hard and have fun! smiley

Ben's been busy inside and outside this week. Thanks for the update Ben. We love to see all of your photos.

Sophie's Mum sent this photo to us. She said, "Sophie is looking forward to coming back to school next week. Yesterday we took part in another Home Concert Club on zoom. This time with a musician called Francesca Ter Berg who plays the Cello. She specialises in folk music and has an interest in Klezmer. Here is a photo of our zoom screen. Sophie has done some written work about the session in her book." Well done Sophie.

Sophie has been learning Dance Monkey moves. Good job Sophie. We're glad that you're enjoying the dances.

Home learning week beginning 8th June 2020:

Maths:

This week we are focussing on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. These skills are very important when working towards learning times tables which the children will do in Year 2, so lots of practise and reinforcement are important.  As always, remember to watch the video to go with each lesson before attempting the activities. If you are unable to print off the sheets at home, you can just write the answers in your own way into your home learning book. Work hard and have fun! smiley

Writing - this week we would like you all to keep a diary. Look at the document to find out how to do it ;0)

Home learning for week beginning 4th May 2020:

Ben has been busy with his VE day home learning. Fantastic work Ben. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos. I hope everybody has a great time celebrating tomorrow.

Sophie has shared her brilliant writing about VE day.Sophie's Mum said, "We called her great Nanny Rose to ask her about VE Day in 1945. Nanny Rose was 8 years old. She told Sophie about what she remembers of the day and Sophie has written about this in her yellow book. Here is a picture of Sophie’s writing. Sophie said that if Nanny’s house had got bombed she doesn’t know where she would have gone to. Our plans today are to decorate our garden ready for tomorrow’s party. We have made bunting and posters and the airplanes you put on the website. We hope you enjoyed Sophies radio broadcast we sent you the other day." Thank you for sharing this with us Sophie.

Leo has been researching his family history and medals. His mum said "This week we've been looking into our family history and learning about VE day. Leo has seen photographs of his Great Grandad Ealings military medal, which he earned for his bravery in WW2. The story of his bravery was in a book. We also looked at photos of Leo's Great Grandad Purkiss' national service medal and Great Great Grandad Purkiss' WW1 medals. My cousin is in the royal engineers so he sent us photos of his medals from his Afghanistan tours and his queens jubilee medal. Leo loved looking at the medals and it inspired him with his own VE day medal design. He also loved seeing photographs of family members when they were in their military uniform. It has definitely kept him interested this week." Thank you for sharing all of this with us Leo.

Declan is ready for a V.E. celebration on Friday. Thank you for the photos Declan. I hope you have a lovely party with your family.

Thank you for sharing your photos Oliver. What a lot of things you've been doing. Oliver is growing lots of vegetables and flowers and is excited to see his sunflowers grow. He has been practising months/seasons and learning to tell the time, playing shops to understand money and doing lots of crafts.

Well done Ben for reading over 200 times! Good job.

Good morning. We hope you had a lovely weekend. It was lovely to talk to most of you on the telephone last week. As well as the home learning activities don't forget that you can log on to charanga and sumdog for more games. Have fun!

Reading comprehension - complete your group`s activity - if you find it too easy, do the next group above`s task! ;0)

Design and writing task.

Look at the pictures of the medals above.

Your task is to design a medal for British Soldiers who served in the Second World War.

Your medal can be any size or shape.

Think about the ribbon AND the metal part.

You must include:

  • The years of the war (1939-1945)
  • The colours of the Allies
  • A symbol to show the fighting and victory (winning)
  • Air, sea and land (the areas the war was fought)

Write about what you have decided to do and why, in your yellow book.

Maths:

The Maths follows the same pattern as weeks one and two. There are four lessons which you can follow by clicking on the video links (one for each lesson) and join in with by pausing and answering each question when reminded. Once you have watched the daily video, have a go at the activity to go with the lesson. If you don't have a printer at home, please don't worry, you can draw the pictures into your book and write the number sentences to go with them. Remember, each daily activity starts easier and gets more challenging towards the end so start and stop at the place you feel most comfortable, but have a go!! wink

Monday 27th April

Maths: as last week, there are 4 Maths lessons each one with a video link. Watch the video first with your child before they complete the activity into their book. They are designed for all children to have a go and complete as much as they can manage. They start easy and gradually get more difficult, so allow your child to lead and. We have also added the answer sheets just in case you are not sure. Remember to watch the video first.

Ben shared photos of his brilliant writing. As a treat for doing his work he chose to have a disco in his room. Great moves Ben. Thank you for sharing.

Monday 20th April

 

Welcome back everyone; we hope you’ve had a lovely Easter holiday and have managed to stay safe and have lots of fun. :-)

 

Below you will find your new home learning for this week:

 

Maths: There are 4 Maths activities for your child to do over the week which we would like them to complete into their home learning exercise book. If you can’t print the activities, your child can copy and complete the sentences into their book. They could even draw the pictures that go with each question. Each day’s activity is designed for all children to have a go at. They start off at an easier level and gradually get more challenging towards the end. If your child finds the later parts too difficult then stop at the appropriate point. On the contrary, if your child finds the earlier parts too easy, start a bit further in and work to the end. Work at the level that they feel most comfortable and complete the whole lot if they are really keen! 😊

There are video tutorials to accompany each lesson which are great and very easy to follow. I have added the link below for you. Just click on the link and then play the correct video for each lesson. If you have any problems, do not hesitate to email me.

Happy learning, Mrs Deeming.

As with the maths, you can either print each sheet or complete the tasks in your books, each day. Have fun! 

Our Mini Mission for the next couple of weeks is Hero Hunters. We will be learning about instructions, compass points, maps and directions. Each week there will be activities for you to do. This week you have a story about a Superhero princess! Enjoy!

Wednesday 26th March

Good Morning everyone!

We would have been learning about Peculiar Pets in school right now. I know you are all learning about them in your packs but if you look at the Edinburgh Zoo web page they have lots of live web cams, where you can see what the animals are up to in real time. I have just been watching the penguins playing! 

Let me know what you see and choose an animal to find out more about. Are they a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore? Are they nocturnal? Are they a mammal? What is their diet? Draw or make your animal too!

Have fun! 

Sophie has also been busy doing PE and learning about plants. Well done Sophie. Thank you for sharing your photos.

Ben has shared more of his home learning with us. He's been busy learning rhymes and working out with Joe Wicks. Fantastic work Ben. Thanks for sharing your hard work with us.

Spread the happiness have posted these ideas. How many can you do?

As part of our Superhero topic we have had some real life superheroes in school.

 

Visit by the Dentist

Firstly, we were taught how to look after our teeth with a visit from the dentist.

                                          

Visit by the Paramedic

 

Then we had a visit from a paramedic (and a Dad).  Mr Jackman showed us around an ambulance which had a special lift for poorly people to get in and out more easily. 

                             

Mr Jackman showed us some of his equipment and what he uses it for. His backpacks are extremely heavy.

                      

 Visit by the Guide Dog

 

Laura came to school with Hester her guide dog.  We tried on different pairs of glasses which showed us what it would be like if our vision was impaired. Laura showed us how Hester guided her around obstacles and taught us that you should not distract a guide dog when they are working and wearing their harness.

                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Visit by the Firefighters

 

The firefighters taught us to drop and roll on the floor if our clothes catch fire. We practiced crawling under the smoke so that we could get out of a room quickly in the event of a fire. 

                  

We dressed up in the firefighter's uniform which was very heavy and rather smelly.

                   

Visit by the Police

 We had a visit by two police officers from Warwickshire Police. They taught us that the police force is there to help us as well as arresting bad people. We looked at PC Ford's uniform and listened to a message on his radio. He showed us his baton, spray and pocket book.  Then he used his handcuffs to take some children prisoner.

                 

 

We also looked around a police van and tried on police uniform.
