P1 – LEARNING FROM HOME WEEK 8 (MONDAY 25TH MAY – FRIDAY 29TH MAY)

Hello P1!

Well done and thank you to those of you who took part in our Sports Day events. You have earned lots of house pennies for each of your houses! The winning house will be announced later in the term when we celebrate lots of achievements throughout the year. Who will be victorious?!

Please find below all the details you will need for learning from home this week. Please remember to get in touch with your child’s teacher at least once a week to share what they have been learning. Also, if you have any questions or problems please just send us an email. Please remember staff are available to you 9am-3pm every school day.

Week 8 Learning Grid

Please find the week 8 learning grid attached. It would be great if you could work through as many of these activities as possible. Some of the boxes on the grid (coloured red) link to an attachment below. Please feel free to either print these and stick into the jotter or to copy the work onto a piece of paper or jotter page.

WOW work

This week we will be focusing on writing for our WOW work. We will be choosing work from the dinosaur fact file pages. This is one of the activities on the weekly grid. At the end of the week, each teacher will choose an excellent piece of work from their class and this will be uploaded to the website on the next Monday.

YouTube Helpdesk

This week we have uploaded a video onto the P1 Helpdesk on YouTube. This video will help with some of the learning in the weekly grid. Please visit the helpdesk here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFH9ZikSY0MXd3PiTBd8ppQ

Literacy

Please remember to practise the daily activities listed in the green Learning from Home jotter and read stories to your child regularly.

This week we are consolidating consonant blends ‘sh’, ‘ch’, ‘th’ and ‘wh’.

We are also beginning to think about ascending and descending letters. Please use the following sheet to start to identify which letters are tall, small and have a tail.

Alphabet-letter-shapes

You will find details of the focused reading and writing tasks under the Jurassic Playpark heading.

Maths and Numeracy

Continue to practise the daily activities listed in the Learning from Home jotter, as well as trying activities from the SEAL grids (in your child’s Homelearning jotter and provided on the P1 class page on the website).

Our numeracy focus for the coming weeks is subtraction. Visit the P1 You Tube Helpdesk to watch a video which explains this skill and gives some practical ideas of how to practise subtraction at home. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFH9ZikSY0MXd3PiTBd8ppQ

We are continuing with data handling this week, looking at how to interpret and use data from pictographs. The attachments below link to the maths and numeracy learning from the weekly grid. There is no expectation to complete all of the activities, they are there to provide some challenge and consolidation of subtraction and data handling.

Topic- Jurassic Playpark

We are in to week 3 of our dinosaur topic, which has proven to be very popular with many of our learners. Read the fact file provided about dinosaurs and see if you can answer the comprehension questions. Then you can have a go at writing your own fact  page, either independently or using the template provided. Follow the links on the weekly grid for a dinosaur ‘How to Draw’, ‘Tiny the T-Rex’ Cosmic Yoga and to create a piece of art of your own. You will also see some ideas in the document below or you may have some ideas of your own.

Personal Learning Profiles

Thank you to those who have already responded to the personal learning profile questions from last week’s grid. The contributions from parents/carers and our learners are invaluable and will form part of the children’s profile of their whole school career. If you have not yet done so, we would be extremely grateful if you could answer the questions and email your home teachers with the responses.

PE

Please find Mrs Griffin’s PE challenge for this week. She has loved seeing the photos you have sent her so far so please continue to do so.
