If we have a class lockdown or you are self isolating and home learning due to coronavirus, I will be sending some activities home to keep you busy. For most activities, there will be no need to print them out, just use the book sent home last summer, one from the post office or any paper to write your answers in. Some sheets will need to be shared via ClassDojo or email, so if you can't access your child's ClassDojo account, please email me so I can send work electronically.
There will also be activities set on the usual online sites. We have stuck all of your passwords into your Home Learning book, but if you have any problems, please do get in contact. EducationCity now has access to all resources at all times, so if there are any additional activities which you would like to try, go for it (and let me know if you find a particularly fantastic one)!
Hopefully we will be back to normal as quickly as possible, but in the meantime please keep in touch, send me pictures, photos and videos via ClassDojo or email and keep checking back here for more activities. My email address is: email@example.com
Life Education Centre
We all enjoy our visits from the Life Education Centre and Harold the giraffe. While we are in lockdown Harold has been keeping a diary of what he has been doing, and has some great ideas of activities you can do while we are at home. If you would like to read it, click here.
Home learning Spring term
As we are currently shut to all children except key worker and vulnerable, I will be posting weekly packs on here for you to access. Please use the videos on the WhiteRose website, Ruth Miskin YouTube channel and Showbie, and keep in touch via email or ClassDojo.
Science - Winter to Spring
We have been looking at Mindfulness with Mojo in school. Here is a lovely video called "Imagine Eating Lemons" which explains a bit more about it.

The RWI videos can be accessed via the link at the top of the page (https://ruthmiskin.us12.list-manage.com/track/click?u=6bde5b9423568e3565810e174&id=8a870dc0ab&e=2d0b75e965). As they are changed daily, it is not possible to put a link on here, but I have included the video of how the sounds are pronounced.
White Rose Maths
White Rose Maths have some daily lessons online, although this is not the scheme of work we follow at school, the lessons and resources look great. For each day you will find a video, a question sheet and a copy of the answers. From May 4th the worksheets will not be with the videos online, but can be downloaded as part of the weekly pack. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
