Good Morning Pandas and Mountain Goats!
Most of you are returning to school this week for two days a week. We have changed the home learning slightly so that, for those children who are in school, you will only need to do sessions 1,2, and 3 at home. Sessions 4 and 5 are only for those children who are not returning to school. The Literacy lessons 1,2 and 3 are more cross-curricular so you will be covering some science or other subjects as well as Literacy.
Our suggested daily programme of learning, for the days when you are at home is:
1. Phonics (If you are confident that your child knows all their phonic sounds, you can leave this session now. )
2. The Daily Literacy lesson
3. The Daily Maths lesson
4. Ten minutes reading
5. Ten minutes mental maths, maths games or number club
6. Something creative or scientific
7. Some physical exercise or outdoor play
The first three should take about 30 minutes each. There are some excellent new videos in the mental maths section which practise some of the new skills introduced at the end of last term. If some of the daily activities seem much too challenging at this stage, please explore our Easier Activities in the General Resources section below.
We really think you should be doing something creative several times a week. There are great ideas in our projects, science, music, computing and health and wellbeing sections. Other ideas will be presented on our facebook page: Trinity TV. Do what you think you would enjoy. If you have any other exciting ideas for projects, why not share them on our twitter accounts. The details are below.
Don't forget that you need daily physical activity. The live youtube sessions with Joe Wicks are great fun or you can try an Energiser Workout from https://www.jumpstartjonny.co.uk/free-stuff .
This term you will be able to contact us on class emails. Mountain Goats: 1S@willowsprimary.org.uk and Pandas: 1T@willowsprimary.org.uk Mrs Herrero has sent a letter out about this. From Thursday 23rd April we will be happy to answer queries on your home learning by email and would love to see some of your work shared on our Twitter account. Enjoy your learning and we are looking forward to seeing you all soon we hope!
