In the links above you will find out all about the exciting learning that is yet to come this half term! Please have a browse.
Below you will find important information regarding your child's PE time slot and information on reading.
At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- A weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within the week! Enjoy!
Please listen to your children read daily. When the children are confident with the text, their book will be changed. Please ensure book bags are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week.
Year 1 have P.E weekly and the day will be confirmed with a sign on the door. Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school on this day. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.
Homework is set every Friday via J2E. This will direct you to access Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds where your children will complete an English and Maths task. Please support your child in completing these tasks. Their logins for J2E, Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds can be found inside their reading journals. If you encounter any problems, please speak to your class teacher.
Class Blog ~ Thursday 21st January 2021
Another busy week for those in school and a huge well done to all those who have been accessing home learning on J2E and attending our zoom meetings. It has been so lovely to see so many smiley faces on screen!
For those at home, please remember to upload your work back onto J2E or emailing it over to Year1@phoenix-pri.essex.sch.uk for feedback and house points!
In English this week, we have been learning and recapping our phonics sounds and writing them into sentences. We have also been learning about sentence types and this week we have focused on 'statement' sentences. We have learned that statement sentences tell us something and usually end in a full stop.
In Maths, we have been learning about 3D shapes.
We learned that a cube and cuboid are like boxes, with flat faces.
A sphere is round like a ball. Cones have flat and curved faces like an ice cream cone and party hat. A cuboid can be stacked and rolled; it is like a can of beans.
A pyramid has flat faces and a pointy top.
This week we have been looking at our favourite toys and some children looked at 1960's toys. We played jacks, pick up sticks, Ludo and tiddlywinks!
We listened to bible stories to understand how Jesus is a good friend.
