Class 1

Hello Year One,

 

I have been fortunate enough to see all of you this week and it put a huge smile on my face!

 

I mentioned that we would be creating some fact pages to pass up to Year 2. On these fact pages I would like you to include:

 

  • a self portrait
  • likes and dislikes
  • hobbies
  • a drawing of your house and family with labels
  • Something you are good at, in school and out of it.
  •  

We will be doing something similar in school, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

 

Miss Bridgman

Hello Year One,

RE:

Open the book have sent us a video version of their wonderful stories. In class this week we will be picking our own and retelling it. Can you think of a bible story and retell it? maybe you can use your toys as the actors? or members of your family?

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

 

Art:

Our new topic is summer at the seaside. In school we will be creating our own underwater pictures using wax crayons and water colour! 
Have a go yourself!  Here’s some inspiration! 

Good morning Year One.

 

This is your last half term in Year One, I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone! We are in the final stretch now before the summer holidays. 
 

Many of you will be coming back to school this week, things are going to be a little different. You will have either myself or Miss Renshaw teaching you, so that will stay the same but the classrooms will be different and so will how you arrive! This may take a bit of getting used to but I know you be like Percy and try your hardest!
 

Don’t forget you will need your water bottle, two snacks and your plimsolls/trainers. You won’t need anything else, not even your book bag! I have everything ready for when you come back! 
 

I have been very busy setting up the classroom and preparing our activities for the weeks ahead the only thing missing now is you!! I cannot wait to see you again this week! 

 

learning from home:

If you are still learning from home, keep going! You are doing a fantastic job! Don’t forget I want to see what you are doing so please send it in to the school email! 
 

It may take me a little longer to upload the work for this week so please bear with me, as I try to find my feet and juggle teaching in a class and online! 
 

Stay happy and healthy,

 

Miss Bridgman

Learning from home 1.6.20

 

Maths:

This week in school we will be learning about capacity and we will be making our own bubble mixture! Where we will measure out the ingredients that we need!

 

I have put the worksheets on for white rose, which is all about capacity. Have a go at them!
 

If we were in school we would be making our own marvellous medicines based in the Roald Dahl book; George’s Marvellous medicines! 
I wonder what wonderful potions or creations you can make linked to what you’ve learned about capacity?

 

English:

we are going to be writing our own poems this week where I would like you to include one rhyming couplet. Rhyming poems have their rhyming words at the end of the sentence! Remember rhyming words have the same sound at the end. Dog - frog and cat - Mat. 

 

Can you think of your own rhyming pairs?

 

DT 

I wonder what materials would be the best to make a bubble wand. 
 

below I have put the recipe for making your own bubble mixture, but to really enjoy bubble mixture you need a bubble wand! 
 

Have a go at making your own bubble wand and send me a picture to let me know how you got on! Did you get it to work?

LFH

Hello Year One, 

 

We nade it to half term! 
 

You have all been working so hard home learning, I have loved seeing your work and what you have been up to! Now it is time for a rest, I will not be posting any work this week, I would like you to have fun and relax before you come back to school next week! 
 

Below I have attached 33 things to do before you are 10, these are some easy and fun things you could do this week. Some might have to after lockdown, but have a look. Number 23 is my favourite, I used to go out with my Nan, Brother and Sister during the school holidays and if there was a river we would play pooh sticks! 

Miss Renshaw and I cannot wait to see you next week. Things may be a little different when you arrive but we can’t wait to see you and we have lots of fun activities to do! 
 

Until then, stay happy and healthy.

 

Miss Bridgman

Hello Year One!

 

I have been smiling all week at the lovely emails I have been receiving! I have received a lovely postcard all about Disney Land, I had a great fact page about Amelia Earhart and much much more!

 

I can see many of you are working your way through the tasks on purple mash and so many of you have been on mathletics working your way through! Well done!

 

Maths:

This week the maths on white rose is all about length and height! We did this at the beginning of the year, so you can use this to refresh your memory. The worksheets are below.

 

English:

Keep sending me the post cards, if you haven't yet! I cannot wait to see them, if you have sent me yours already, thank you, have a look at purple mash I have set some grammar games on there. You may need some help reading the sentences, but can you pick the right word to go in the gap?

 

I will be posting a video on the Clatford home learning page shortly with another task for you this week! There's lots on this page to keep you busy and hopefully we will be back together again soon!

 

Stay happy and healthy,

 

Miss Bridgman

 

Hello Year One,

 

Another couple of week of online learning but it won't be long until we are back together again!

 

Thank you for all of your hard work and patience while we have been learning online.

 

This week I would like you to have a go at these tasks:

 

Maths:

 

White rose maths have changed how we access the worksheet, I have attached them below! The vidoes can still be accessed in the same place.

 

This week I have also set you some tasks on mathletics! All about shapes!

 

I have uploaded a shape hunt, see how many you can find around the home!

 

English:

 

We are still on our travel and transport theme, I would like you to write about a journey that you have been on. What mode of transport did you take? Where did you go? Why did you go there?

 

Remember, each sentence needs a capital letter to start and a full stop to end. Have you used your phonics to sound out each word?

 

You can write it in your books or if you would like I have attached a postcard template.

 

I can wait to read them!

 

Phonics:

 

Please have a look at the sheet attached below for some more ideas, and links to videos on youtube.

 

History:

 

Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, but who was the first person/people to ever fly in an aeroplane? and when did they do so?

 

I cannot wait to see what you find out!

 

Stay happy and healthy see you very soon,

 

Miss Bridgman

 

 

 

 

 

Hello Year One,

 

I hope you are well!

 

This week I would like you to have a look at White Rose for your maths this week. they will be updating the pages weekly. This week they are teaching about partitioning and number bonds, you have already done this with me in class so you should all be able to do it.

 

Here is the link for this weeks learning:

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

 

I have set you some tasks on purple mash linked our topic, including designing your own steam train! Have a go at these, I cant wait to see them!

 

Using what you found out about Amelia Earhart I would like you to create a fact page all about her! I have attached a template that you can use (find below) or you can create your own!

 

I would love to see anything that you do, remember you can send your work to: clatfordhomelearning@gmail.com

 

Hope you stay happy and healthy, see you again soon!

 

Miss Bridgman

 

 

Hello Year One and welcome back to online learning.

 

If we were in school we would be starting our new history topic; Travel and Transport. This is such a fun topic! I didn’t want you to miss out on it, so we will be doing as much as we can on here!

This is a history topic so we will be historians going back in time to look at important events that have happened in the past. Your first task is to find out (research) about a lady called Amelia Earhart. How does she link to our Travel and Transport topic? Why is she famous? When was she alive (dates)? And anything else that interests you!

 

You can record what you have found however you like; you may want to write a fact page about her, create a poster or write it in your home learning books.

 

I wonder where Amelia Earhart fits onto our class timeline?

 

Hope you enjoy learning all about this fascinating woman. I cannot wait to see what you find out! Have a look at the youtube page for some more activities!

 

Stay happy and healthy,

Miss Bridgman

 

Reading

I hope you are enjoying the stories that Miss Renshaw and I are posting and we hope that you are still reading at home.

Oxford Owl have a collection of Read Write Inc ebooks that you can access here for free:

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/home/reading-site/find-a-book/library-page?view=image&series=Read+Write+Inc.

They are the same scheme that we follow at school so it is worth a look as we cannot get out to a library!

 

Maths

White rose maths have put together some simple lessons and ideas which the children can do. They are designed to revisit what we have already learned in class and also give you an answer sheet!

 

You can find everything you need for this week here:

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

 

Additional support:

BBC bitesize have teamed up with teachers to create daily lessons linked to the national curriculum. You can access them here:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zjpqqp3/year-1-lessons/1

 

Wellbeing!

Remember none of this work is compulsory, they are ideas to keep the children entertained. As you know we are in lockdown for the next three weeks as a minimum. During this time, I will continue to set some work to do on this class page. I will probably post more than what you need, please do not feel you have to do it all!

This isn't mandatory, as yours and the children's wellbeing is more important, but it is to simply keep you ticking over and keep boredom at bay, whilst hopefully learning some things along the way.

Join Miss Bridgman for another lovely story.

Another scavenger hunt!

Hello Year One,

 

Happy Easter, I hope you are all well and have been enjoying the sunshine. This week is the first week of your Easter holidays, you will not be getting any work from me this week or next. It is very important that you use this time to relax and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.

 

Below you will find some Easter activities if you want to do some, as always these are optional, you can do as few or as many as you like.

 

I hope you all stay safe and happy!

I hope you are spending lots of time outdoors in this lovely weather! 
 

I’ve just uploaded another scavenger hunt that you can do in your garden or on a walk! 
 

Stay safe and healthy see you soon!

Dough disco

Still image for this video
‘Dough Disco’ is a fun activity which combines the use of play dough with a series of hand and finger exercises designed to improve fine muscle control. The movements develop children’s fine and gross motor dexterity, hand-eye coordination and self-esteem. The overall aim is to ultimately support children’s hand writing skills.

You will need:
1 cup of cold water
1 cup of salt
2 teaspoons of vegetable oil
3 cups of flour
2 tablespoons of corn flour
Food colouring

Instructions
Gather together all your ingredients.
Put the dry ingredients in a bowl and then slowly add water.
Mix until it forms a nice dough.
It should now be easy to pick up and mould – add more flour if it is too sticky and more water if it is too dry.
Knead it well with your hands to get all the food colouring to blend in.
Then the fun begins! You can store your play dough in an airtight container when you have finished playing.
You can add food colouring to your play dough and even a sprinkle of glitter to make it sparkly. Add a drop or two of essential oils to make it fragranced or grains of rice for texture. Have fun experimenting with different additions.

5 Minute Move | Kids Workout 1 | The Body Coach TV

Some of you maybe at home now, self isolating. Remember, staying active has been scientifically proven to benefit your mood and overall well being, thanks to the ‘happy hormone’ endorphins you release when you get your heart-rate up. This 5 minute move will keep you active and release those “happy hormones”.

Check back soon for another video to keep you moving and active!

The children will be coming home with home learning books soon which have some activities and sheets in for them to have a go at. Before that time I have made a list of activities, websites and resources that may prove helpful, informative and fun for you and your child while they are learning from home.

 

  • https://www.ictgames.com/ this has lots of fun games for KS1 children that work help support phonics and maths.
  • Purple mash- your child has their own log in for this in the back of their reading log. I have selected some activities for your children that they should be able to do independently, they will need help logging on.
  • Mathletics - your child has their own log in for this in the back of their reading log. I have selected some activities for your children that they should be able to do independently, they will need help logging on.
  • https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ - this has interactive resources to support phonics teaching, you do not have to pay or subscribe, follow the links to free resources.
  • https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize this has lots of great information and games. We have been using it for Geography where the children have been learning about the UK and farming.
  • https://www.phonicsbloom.com/ this has some free resources which will support children learning their phonics sounds.
  •  

I will be posting information and tasks to this page so please keep checking back here regularly. Any work that the children completely can be stuck into their home learning books so they can show me when they return.

 

I hope you all stay healthy and happy. Remember that although some of us may be ill, isolated or feeling sad. We are still a big Clatford family! We'll all be back to school together before you know it!

Reading in Year One

Still image for this video
Reading is so important in Year One, we try to read a story every day. Today Ava wanted to read to the class. She picked the book The Ugly Five by Julia Donaldson. She read with such enthusiasm and expression and even turned the book to show the class the pictures like a real teacher! I think I'll be out of a job soon, well done Ava!

Jesus is good news

Children made candles with Jesus is Good News written on them because Jesus is the light of the world.

Algorithms with our Robot

This week we had a special visitor come to see us in Year One to help us learn about algorithms. This jam sandwich making robot was very naughty and taught children the importance of clear and direct instructions. When the robot didn't do what we wanted we had to debug our algorithm and start again.

Mirror Maths

We used mirrors in maths to help find doubles. The children loved using the mirrors and had great success finding double!

Science Sorting

Welcome back to Year One, we hope you had a lovely and restful Christmas break! This half term we are lucky enough to have Mr Bailey-Hobbs join us for six weeks; he is doing his teacher training and is excited to learn about Key Stage One.

Our new topic is Fantastic Fairy Tales where we will be learning about traditional tales and their characters.

What love means to Year One

Still image for this video
We have thinking a lot about love and what it means to us. For our assembly we made this short video about love.

Our Odd Socks

Still image for this video
During Anti-bullying Week, the children wore odd socks to show that we are all unique. This special week helped us celebrate our uniqueness and gave us lots of opportunities to talk about friendship and love.

Remembrance Poppy Prayers

We learned about poppies as a symbol
We wrote prayers on the back

Salt Dough Symbols

Here are some of the children's salt dough symbols

Making a harvest loaf

As part of our RE topic, bread as a symbol, we made a harvest loaf for the harvest service. The children had lots of fun learning how to make a harvest loaf and enjoyed shaping the dough!

Making an animal

As part of our amazing animals topic the children made an animal of their choice. Some children recreated an existing animal like a cat, a tiger or giraffe. Some children creatively chose their favourite parts of different animals to create a super animal!

We are so impressed with all of the creations and have created a little zoo in the corner of the classroom. The children used their geography skills to decide which habitat their animal would live in!

 

Peace as a symbol

This week, to celebrate International Peace day on the 21st September, we made our own symbols for peace! 

This linked nicely with our RE topic (Bread as a symbol) and the children brought so many great ideas to the class discussion.

We considered what peace was and how we could capture that in a symbol! The children were really proud of what they created and these symbols are now hung with pride in the quiet garden! 

 

Funky Fingers

Year One builds upon the children’s experiences from Year R.  The classroom is still mobile but activities are often teacher-led and involve the children in working with an adult or independently.  Learning friends help children to recognise the kind of learner that they are.

 

In the mornings, the children have a literacy or maths lesson and then phonics before lunch. In the afternoon the focus changes to topic and science work. The children also have an indoor and outdoor P.E lesson, music, R.E and ICT skills lessons.  Our topic this half term is Amazing Animals, which is a science and geography topic. Children will also have daily handwriting lessons and will do “funky finger” exercises to help their fine motor skills!

 

In Year One we want the children to be happy and enjoy their learning.  We encourage the children to be polite, reflective, to behave well, and to support and respect each other. Children are also rewarded with team points and certificates. On Friday afternoons, they have Golden Time which is a time when they can play. As a class they are collecting marbles in a pot, once they have collected all of the marbles they will have a class reward, which the children will choose.

 

The children’s learning is reinforced through homework.  The children practise spellings, during the week, and complete a maths, literacy or topic based piece of weekend homework. In addition, they take home reading books which they choose themselves.

 

During this term children will visit Marwell Zoo.  Next half term they will take part in the Christmas play alongside Year 2.

 

This page will be updated with pictures of what we get up to in class; so please check back for more information!

Clockwise and Anticlockwise

This week in maths we are learning all about position and direction. We will be learning about clockwise and anti-clockwise, we will be learning about 1/2 1/4 and 3/4 turns and will have the chance to program robots! Today we started outside, using our direction steering wheels to help us! 

Follow this link below to watch our weather reports, we wrote these reports in our table groups in science.

Art lesson sneak peek

Still image for this video
Have a sneak peek into today’s art lesson! The children were using a range of materials to recreate Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night!

Summer Learning

With the weather on the turn and nicer days creeping in, we’ve been taking our learning outside. The children have enjoyed learning and playing outside!

The Gingerbread Man

This week we have started our new English topic and we are looking at the book The Gingerbread Man. We used all of our senses today to describe the gingerbread man. We enjoyed this lesson, especially when we got to eat the gingerbread man!

Fun in Phonics

In Year One we have been trying to find new ways to help us learn all of our phonic sounds. We do phonics every day in small groups and this week we have been using the aqua beads and letters to help us spell and apply our sounds! The children loved getting to play with the water beads and spelt a variety of common exception words.

Acive Maths

The last two weeks in maths we have been learning about tens and ones! We have been making numbers in a variety of ways and learning how to show this in our books. This week we went outside and played a game using our tens and ones knowledge! The children loved the active maths lesson.

Weaving Cinderella a new dress

This week we came to the end of our art topic. This half term we have learned how to weave, we learned about the warp and weft and practised with paper. Today we got to put it all into practise when we made a new dress for Cinderella to wear to the ball. The children picked their own materials and put their weaving skills in effect. The results are beautiful and each Cinderella is well and truly ready for the ball!

Barnaby Bear

Still image for this video
The children have been working very hard in music to learn the songs ready for the big sing. Here is a short video of our day at The Anvil. Everyone enjoyed singing along with Barnaby and hearing his story about a pirate and his missing treasure.
We took our own bears, who also enjoyed the trip!

Crime Scene Do Not Cross

This half term we have started a new topic, Fantastic Fairytales. We have looked at traditional tales and alternative versions. 

 

When we arrived at school last week, the outdoor area had been changed into a crime scene. There was lots for us to look at and different clues for us to examine! The police came in to question us to help find the criminal! 

Sprout Boy by Year One

Still image for this video
When these children tried sprouts they liked them and chose to write their poem as "everyone likes a sprout"

This week the children finished their Sprout Boy poems. Here some Year One children have shared their ideas to create their own Christmas video inspired by Sprout Boy. The children have worked very hard on these poems and they have been very successful.

Panto Day

A little vlog of our day at the panto, watching Snow White!

Sprout Boy meets a galaxy of stars

In English, in the lead up to Christmas, we have used the video “Sprout Boy” to inspire our writing. We have watched the video and have been considering the vocabulary choices and learning about rhyme.

We have also had the chance to taste sprouts, to decide whether our poem will be about loving sprouts or hating them! The children were brilliant and nearly all of them tried a sprout, many of them were surprised when they liked them! Many of them went back for SECONDS!

Fire Service

On Tuesday 11th December we were lucky enough to have the fire service come to visit us, we spent the morning in class with them playing games and learning about how to keep ourselves safe. After break we had the chance to visit the fire engine and have a go at putting out a fire! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and particularly enjoyed spraying Miss Bridgman!

Marwell Zoo

On the 15th of October we went on a class trip to Marwell Zoo as part of our Amazing Animals topic. While we were there we were looking at Fur, Feathers and Scales. We used what we had learned in science to classify these animals into mammals, birds and reptiles. The animals were clearly not perturbed by the rain and we saw lots of different animals whilst walking around the zoo.

When we got back to class, the children wrote postcards home about our day at the zoo and enjoyed looking through the photos we all took.

Snail and the Whale

On Monday the 8 October a beach washed up on the shores of Year One’s outdoor area! Miss Bridgman was the first to notice the strange scene and asked the children to take a closer look. Upon inspection James spotted that a glass bottle had washed up onto the beach, inside the bottle was a message from a tiny snail who had taken a trip on the tail of a whale.

 

The children were eager to begin learning all about the snails adventures. More information about the snail and the whale will be posted here so check back soon!

Year One 2018/2019
