Year 1 School Closure Work
Thank you to all the children and parents who have sent us pictures and emails this week, letting us know how you're getting on with your learning at home. We really miss you all and enjoy finding out what you have been doing and see that you are still working hard. Please keep writing to us and we will do our best to reply.
Please find information below about what we are providing for Year 1 children for the second week of closures.
We have included a suggested timetable of activities to be completed daily. They are all activities that we would have been doing in class next week, if the school had been operating as usual.
Each task on the timetable will have a corresponding file containing the resources for the activity on the Year 1 class page. Hopefully you will be able to find everything you need, but if you have any problems please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the activities will be able to be independently completed by your child, but some will require a small amount of adult guidance. We appreciate that many parents will be very busy at this time and may not be able to ensure all the activities are completed. However, we have included as much as we can to ensure there is as little disruption to your child's education as possible.
We have added some guidance documents with the activities to help support you and your child.
We will upload a week's worth of work at a time on the Year 1 page, on the St George's website.
Below are some useful websites and online videos to help support your child's education:
www.discoveryeducation.co.uk - Every week, we watch 'Newsbites'. The children really enjoy watching the news and taking part in the quiz afterwards. Please see the 'science' activity guidance for log in details.
www.oxfordowl.co.uk - The website currently has free access to online ebooks to continue to support your child's reading at home. Books can be selected by age group or book band colour.
www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga - The children enjoy following these story telling yoga videos, specifically designed for children aged 3+. It's a good calming activity and also great for your mental health and wellbeing.
Additional web links for useful educational resources, can be found at the bottom of the Year 1 webpage.
