What's happening this half term - Topic Web

Week beginning: April 27th 2020


We hope you have enjoyed looking at the Year 1 activities that have been suggested for your child during their time at home. 

You will now be able to access a new government online classroom called 'Oak National Academy' 

This is an online classroom and resource hub for children in classes Reception to Year 10. Teachers have prepared 5 sequenced video lessons and resources for English, Maths and Foundation for each year group. These are based on the national curriculum for that year and new lessons are delivered each week. 

Your child can choose what and how much they would like to look at. Each lesson is led by a teacher with activities for your child to have a go at. Your child can pause the video at any time, for example to get a pencil and paper or to collect things needed for a lesson such as lego bricks, crayons. The activities are online and the teacher will help the children with the task, showing the answers. 

We feel this is really useful resource to help their child with their learning whilst at home. Please remember it is up to you and your child to decide what to do. 

When you enter the site click on classroom/schedule/Year 1. Click on the week and day you would like to look at. You will see Maths, English and Foundation. Click on a subject to open it and follow the instructions. I would recommend you start with Week 1-April 20th for this week.

We hope you and your child will really enjoy learning 'as if at school'.

We shall continue to set some Purple Mash 2Do tasks and activity sheets based around a theme which your child may like to have a go at. If you have any questions please contact me on class dojo. Enjoy!
