Your Child's Home Learning
Today, your child will have received their 'Home Learning' book for the first time for this academic year. The way, in Year 1, we will be completing homework is as follows:
This weeks homework for the Bees Class- Thursday 24th September 2020
Share a Story- A Seaside Story
For this weeks 'Home Learning', I want you to share at least one seaside story together. Stick a picture in your 'Home Learning' book of you sharing this seaside story with your Mum, Dad, Brother, Sister etc. Mr Burchett used to love this book when he was younger, so if you don't have a seaside story to share, you can listen to this one...
Maths Learning- Counting Activity
Click the image above to take you to the 'White Rose Maths' website. Click on the Week 2- Counting Activity Video so your child can show you the sorts of things we have been learning in class. Can they watch the video and answer some of the questions? They can either write the answers to the questions in their 'Home Learning' book or, as parents, you can just comment on how they got on.
If you can find them, we have completed all of the Week 1 and 2 sessions, so you can watch the videos with your child if you like to see what they have been learning. For those who want an additional challenge, this is in their homework books.
We have really been working hard on the children's handwriting in school this week. Our final challenge we would like the children to complete this week is for them to practice their handwriting skills. They can do this in their 'Home Learning' books even without the lines! Click the image above which will take you to the website which will help you. Today, we will be focusing on the following letter patterns:
We have worked on i in class, so I would like you to work at l and t. The sheets you will need to practice on have been placed in your books. Just keep practising these!
Topic Homework- Our own 'Bees Class Seaside Experience'
To be handed in by Tuesday 13th October 2020
We have loved learning about the seaside and the beach this term so far. Some children have bought in some photographs of them over the summer at the beach or since they have been back at school and I will start to add these to the class page in due course. Remember to send these over to us! It is getting a little colder now for this topic, but it might be you want to take a trip down to the beach, take some photographs and send these in.
Each term, children will undertake a larger piece of homework related to their topic which is hopefully 'fun for all of the family' and so they can all get involved. The week before we finish the topic, we would like to create our 'Bees Beach Scene' on the school playground for all of our Bees parents to see at the end of a school day. To help us to create this for the children (and hopefully a memorable experience) each child has a challenge which is:
Make a 3d object of something you might find at the seaside. You might want to use junk modelling, papermache, salt dough or modelling dough.
Have a look at some of the photographs below which might inspire you in your ideas...
