Year 1 2019 - 2020

Home Learning in Year 1

As you are aware, the school has been closed for the foreseeable future. From  now on, all Year 1 pupils will need to access the school website by logging in  under the “student login” at the top of the Year 1 page (instructions below).  

Home learning is a new aspect to teaching for both families and schools and  whilst we have done our utmost to ensure this runs smoothly, there may be  teething problems. For any queries on this, or any aspect of your child’s home  learning, please contact me by email.  

As I will either be working from home or in school, I will be available to  respond to emails between 9am and 3:30pm.  Replies may be not immediate, but I  will get back to you as quickly as possible. 

Before Easter, I sent home packs of phonics, handwriting and maths work. The  children have also brought home a notebook and maths and handwriting  exercise books to use for their work. I talked these through with the children  before school closed.

Each week, I will be setting work, via the website, for the subjects we usually  teach in school. I recommend that you log-in with your child as often as possible to  check for updates to the homework or discussion items. As well as English and Maths, I  will also set topic work such as History, Geography, Art and Science tasks. I will aim to  set a range of work: some will require the use of a laptop or tablet whereas other will  not  rely on electronic devices.  Of course, I really encourage the children to be reading on a daily basis too.

I do know how hard it is working from home and ensuring your child keeps learning, so please use what I send as a guide to reinforce learning (I understand each family dynamic is different).

If you wish, you can upload photographs of your child's work in a number of ways. Either use the "upload homework" tab on the green page or you can add a photo in the homework or discussion item pages. Your child can also make a digital scrapbook of their work to share with me. Whichever way you choose, it is a great way for me to keep in touch with the class. I make a note of any uploaded work and award house points, which will continue to be counted over this half term.

And Finally…

I am very sorry not to be spending the regular time with our class.  Your children have been an absolute pleasure to teach so far this year. I miss their weekend news and stories, their laughter and smiles and their enthusiasm for learning. Please remind them ‘We are still the same Year 1 family and I am still their teacher!’

I hope that all our families are able to stay healthy and happy over the upcoming weeks. I really cannot wait to have the whole class back together for some exciting learning, when it is safe to do so. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the meantime. 

With kind regards and best wishes 

Ms Cummins
