Zoom Catch Up Meeting
We have arranged a short meeting for children in Class One to have the opportunity to have a quick catch up with their friends and teacher. The meeting will take place at 3.30pm on Thursday 9th July. We hope that you will be able to join us. The ID code and password will be sent in a text message to all parents. In order to help safeguard all of the people involved, we ask that all parents make it known to the teacher that they are in the room at the start of the meeting. Parents do not need to remain on camera if they choose not to.

If you scroll further down the page you can see some of examples of the wonderful work you have been sending us. Please continue to send us photographs of your super work so we can share it with all of your Class One friends.

Class One Team
Here are the weekly tasks for week commencing 6th July...
This week we will be reading some exciting pirate poems and learning to write our own pirate poetry! See the English Learning Activities document below.
Phonics and Spelling
During this final half term we will be revising all of the sounds we have learnt this year. This is very important to help develop vital phonic and spelling skills to prepare us for Class Two.
This week we will continue to post a 'Letters and Sounds' Phonics Lesson on our Class Page each day (Mon-Thurs). We will focus on a different sound each day. These lessons are very similar to our Phonics lessons in school. You will hear the word digraph (two letters that make one sound e.g. ch or oy) frequently in these lessons. Your child will also know digraphs as 'special friends'. Every Friday we will also set a spelling task to be completed at home.
Reading tasks and activities will be set weekly on purplemash.co.uk.
Remember to read at home as much as you can, this may be your school books, comics, joke books, magazines etc. You can also access Reading Eggs and a range of ebooks on oxfordowl.co.uk.
You may like to complete book reviews for your favourite books that you read and we can share them on our class page for your friends to see. A template for this has been set as a 2do on purplemash.

Have a go at creating your own piece of artwork in the style of Kandinsky using the sheet below. Don't forget to send us some photographs of your beautiful artwork!
The Department for Education and several other organisations have worked quickly to produce online learning packages that can be used by parents for primary aged pupils. These were released at the start of the summer term (20th April). These have been divided up into year groups and have video teaching sessions and accompanying worksheets with them. These websites are organised to have daily lessons in English, Maths and other subjects. We are very aware of the pressures currently facing many of our parents so as we have previously stated, do what you can and what you feel is appropriate for your child/children. We will continue to set inspiration ideas and resources to support you and your children so if completing some activities from our weekly inspiration list is enough, that’s great!
