Hello Earth Class! Welcome back!
I hope you had a wonderful half term and have enjoyed the lovely weather. Thank you for sending
across all of your fantastic work. I have really enjoyed seeing all the hard work you have been doing. If you scroll down you will see some of it in our class gallery. Well done!
Over the next two weeks, our whole school learning will be SUPER HEROES! Your English will be combined with lots of superhero Art and Design. You will be creating your own characters, villains and comic strips. You will find all of this below. I hope you enjoy creating your superheroes and comics. I look forward to seeing them and being able to add them to our class gallery.
Please ensure that you complete one English and one Art task per day. Along with Maths and daily reading activities too. There is still time to complete the Wincanton Book Challenge 2020 to try and earn a bronze, silver or gold certificate!

On the 100 square grid, colour in each times table using a different colour. For example: red = 2 times table, green = 5 times table and blue = 10 times table.

Welcome to our class gallery, here is some fantastic work you have been doing! If you have something you'd like to share, please email it to Miss Reakes on our class email and it will be added to the gallery.
Well done on your fantastic reports about Mary Anning. I have enjoyed reading about her amazing discoveries. Here is a gallery of your hard work.
Please watch the video (link below) with an adult and then answer questions about what you have watched.
This is a website we use at school to promote phonics learning in a fun and exciting way. Using this website the children can play games which embed the phonics level they are current on in their reading books.
During this time of home learning the website are allowing free access to the site using the following
Please spend 10 minutes a day to complete one of these sheets. If you read a phase 4 book you can choose which sheet to complete.
Paper copies can be found in the 'drop box' in the School's foyer if needed.
Children can do additional spelling and grammar work on the Planet Teach website.
Their passwords are inside their Reading Records.
Go to planetteach.co.uk - type this into the browser without (www) as it is not yet nationally available.
The children have been shown this website in class but haven't had time to explore it yet...now is their chance to do this! As teachers we can see their progress via our teacher tab - good luck!
By the end of year One the children should be able to spell the following words. They have been broken up into spelling families to allow the children to see patterns whilst learning them.
Your challenge is to try to learn them all!
Over this time of home learning pick a family group and try to learn them in a fun way - not all at once, but in manageable chunks! These words can be learnt outside or inside and do not need to be written in the home learning book.
Ideas to learn the spellings in a fun way:-
*write them with water using a paintbrush on an outside wall or patio
*write them in chalk (if you have any at home)
*write them as a rainbow - start in pencil and then choose a different colour to write over the top. Keep changing colour each time you write the word until it looks like a rainbow.
*make it using magnetic letters or scrabble game letters
*write them in coloured pens and pencils
*write them in a sentence in your home learning book
