Dear Year 1 parents,

As Spring is coming into full bloom, I thought it would be a great opportunity for the children to complete some simple activities on ‘the signs of Spring’ as part of our ongoing Science topic about seasons and weather, (these are all optional activities).

I have found some simple activities on the RSPB site that set some fun challenges to complete either in the garden or out on a walk.  If you don’t have access to a printer, there are still some challenges that you can complete without the sheet and your child could simply draw and label some ‘signs of spring’ on a sheet of paper, (such as; buds forming on trees, Catkins, Daffodils, or a bee buzzing around a flower).

Making a bird feeder:

The Cbeebies website has some great tips on how to make a basic bird feeder:

Your child could write some instructions on how they made theirs.

(See help sheets below).

 

Music

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons – Spring

  1. Here is a clip of Vivaldi’s Spring. You could listen to this with your child and discuss which instruments you can hear. What do you think the music is trying to ‘show’ you? How is it like Spring? How does it make you feel?
  2. What could you use to make sounds that remind you of Spring?
  3. Could you listen to the music again and draw as you listen? What colours would you use? Which shapes would you make?

Have fun!

Dear Parents,

In light of recent events, I have enclosed a pack for the children to complete at home.

In this pack you will find:

  • Reading – Please share books with your child and listen to them read as regularly as possible.
  • Maths (1-2 page to be completed daily). These are not differentiated, apart from the problem-solving task at the back where I’ve made a Bronze, Silver and Gold for you to choose from. Please don’t feel that you must complete ALL the tasks. (I can provide more tailored challenges if required).
  • Mathletics – Work will be available on a weekly basis.
  • Literacy – I’ve enclosed a ‘home’ diary for your child to complete one or two pages a week. This needs to be written in the past tense and include feelings. Even if your child is just at home, it doesn’t need to be about anything super exciting.
  • Handwriting - (1 page to be completed daily)
  • Science – Materials Project
  • Phonics – 1 sheet to be included daily, (I have put a few extra sheets in).
  • Websites - The following websites may be of use:
  • gonoodle.com (for guided dances, mindfulness exercises and yoga)

 

  • cosmikids.com, (These are also available on YouTube for guided yoga session for your child. They include themes, such as We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and Minecraft)

 

 

I will be contactable between 9am and 12 noon on the following email address:

year1@platt.kent.sch.uk

 

I will endeavour to reply as quickly as possible to ensure we can continue to support the children in their learning.

Thank you for your co-operation at this time.

 

Best wishes,

Mrs Wright
