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!

 

Have fun!

Miss Reakes

Earth Class phonics activities

Phonicsplay.co.uk

 

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 

Username: march20

Password: home

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!

Earth Class spelling challenge part 1

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
