The Year 1 Message Board
Welcome to our Year 1 Message Board - the teachers will post updates here about learning taking place in school and other key messages. Check back regularly to keep to up date with Year 1.
4/11/20 - The home learning tasks have been updated below and more tasks will continue to appear over the coming weeks to reflect the learning the children have been completing in class. Please remember to send in any tasks into the email account at the top of the page.
Home Reading - Please continue to read to your child a few minutes each night. If your sign their purple Home Learning Journal to say they have read they get extra points for their teams in class. Remember, having a bedtime story read to them also counts so remember to note it down.
online learning activities:
With a parent, go to Oxford Owl and click My Class Login at the top.
Log in using these details:
Class 1T Username: hps1t - Password: book
Class 1U Username: hps1u - Password: book
You have free choice over all the books. Remember, if the book is too easy you may want to pick a different one. In school we read the same book a few times to develop fluency (where children can read a book with good pace). Can your parent/carer ask you questions about the story?
Online reading Games

Sparks in the Sky
A story perfect around Bonfire Night
Read the story Sparks in the Sky and then write a poem about what Bo, the character, could see, hear, smell, taste and touch whilst at the bonfire display.

Along the way use your senses to think about what you can see, hear, smell, touch and taste
Can you use the words in the word bank to help you create a poen or think of your own amazing words to add.
We look forward to reading these in class.
The celebration of Diwali
During Autumn time some people celebrate the festival of light known as Diwali.
Have a go at colouring one of these rangoli patterns using lots of bright , bold colours!

Ordering Numbers to 20
Cutting and Sticking time!
We have started to look at and use numbers beyond 10 .
Use the sheet to create a number line from 11 to 20 (remember to count as you go!)
Within the shared file section there is a similar sheet from 1-10 if you prefer to start at that point.
Remote Learning: Individual Isolation
This area of VSchool applies to pupils who are absent from school because they are awaiting test results. They will need to access home learning during this time. A 10 day plan is available on the VSchool.
Remote Learning: Awaiting Test Results
Visit this link to find a 10 day plan which your child can access and complete whilst isolating at home. Continuing to learn from home will support both their education and routines. If your child is unwell and unable to learn, plenty of bedtime stories would be excellent learning for them.
Remote Learning: Class Closure
This area applies to pupils who are absent from school because their class has been ordered to self-isolate by Public Health England due to a positive case being confirmed. This section of the Vschool will be populated by the teachers on a daily basis.
You can contact the teachers directly at: email@example.com
** This area only becomes activated if your child's class has been ordered to isolate **
