Week Beginning 13th July 2020 - SCIENCE ENRICHMENT WEEK 

For our last week of school this year we thought we would end with a whole family project week as the VE celebration week was so successful. This time we have chosen Science and have a range of fun science activities and experiments that you can do together as a family. The experiments are grouped into 4 categories; cooking ingredients, water, nature and indoor/outdoor fun. They have also been organised into ¬ star, ¬¬ star and ¬¬¬ star – due to the level of difficulty or the level of adult help needed. Some include using fire! We would love to see what you all get up to, so please take lots of photos and send them to your class teacher; to share on Facebook the fun learning taking place. We have even applied to Mrs B (the science guru who has created these) for medals to present to budding scientists out there. There are many activities to choose from and we do not expect you to complete all of them! You could continue to do some throughout the summer holidays if you want. Have a fun week and we look forward to seeing lots of great science.

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'  https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-1/schedule 

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.
