Badgers - Year 1

Happy Easter!

Well done everyone who has been doing the distance learning at home, you have worked really hard and can be very proud of yourselves.  It is now the Easter break so there won't be any more daily tasks for a little while, you have been so busy you deserve a rest.  I have put together a few activities you might like to try over the holiday and have some fun.  Remember to keep reading and writing those reads in your journal - see if you can read every day of the Easter break.  Keep practising your phonics sounds too, play some games on Phonicsplay, the login is in your distance learning booklet.  I enjoyed playing the build a rocket game with my little girl today, maybe you could try it too.  Although I won't be putting things on the website every day, I would still like to see any pictures you want to share and I can put them on the class page so you can see what your friends are doing to.

You have all been showing me what you have been up to so I thought I would show you all what I have been doing too. I have been making sure that I keep busy and active while at home. I have been taking Ted my cockerpoo puppy for a big walk every day and he has loved exploring!

Thursday 26th March

 

Good morning everybody, I am really enjoying seeing what you are doing at home in your learning.  It has been beautiful weather so remember to get outside in the fresh air in the garden if you can.  Have any of you been joining in the Joe Wicks PE lesson online?  I would love to see pictures if you have or maybe you have made up a dance at home or done some other exercise at home.  It would be great to show each other what you have been up to on the class page.

 

I hope you enjoyed looking at the animals at Edinburgh Zoo, when I looked the penguins were shaking their wings and the koala was asleep!!  I didn't see the tiger at all, it was hiding.

This will begin on Monday 23rd March, and will continue on weekdays until Tuesday 31st March (as per the term dates). This will then continue again on Monday 20th April if the Government continues to direct us to be closed. Please use the book and distance learning pack we have provided to record any work completed when possible. If you need to contact me during this time, please use the class email, badgers@eye.peterborough.sch.uk and I will respond to you within normal working hours. I look forward to hearing about and seeing your work throughout this time via our class email, and I am already thinking of creative ways we can keep in touch with the Badgers, so look out for video messages coming your way! I appreciate your continued support throughout this time, and we are here to help if we are able.

Thank you, Miss Cockle x

Welcome to Badgers!

 

It is hard to believe that the Summer is over and it is time for Squirrels to become Badgers. We are really excited to welcome your children into Year 1 and we hope that your children are looking forward to coming back to school, catching up with their friends and learning new things. We are very lucky to have two teaching assistants in our class, Mrs Hobbs and Mrs Naylor. 

 

Our topic for this term is Toys, a theme I'm sure your children already know lots about! We will be learning about the History of toys and completing art and design activities linked to toys.

 

In English we will be using texts such as The Tiger Who Came To Tea to stimulate our writing. We will be consolidating our ability to read, write and understand numbers to 20 in maths, using practical resources and applying our understanding to real life situations. 

 

Your child will read regularly with an adult at school, sometimes individually, especially during the first couple of weeks when we will be checking your child's book level, and at other times in a group. We will write in the reading log when we have read with your child. We will check your comments in the diaries and count your child's reads weekly, usually on a Monday.  They will work towards certificates for 20, 50 and 100 reads! Your child will also have daily phonics lessons and we will closely monitor your child's progress through our phonics scheme.

 

We really look forward to getting to know you and your children better as the term progresses. If you have any comments, questions or concerns we are always available in the Badgers' outdoor area from 8.45 in the morning and we can chat after school when we have said good bye to the children. Please bear with us at home time as we get to know your faces and those of friends and family who pick up your child. It might take a little while for us to check that each child is going home safely with the correct person at the start of term.

 

Here's hoping for a sunny September and lots of fabulous learning experiences!
