Friday 15th January
We hope you managed to do something enjoyable over the weekend. Once again, we wanted to reiterate how proud of the children we are and wanted to thank you for all your support with remote learning. Let’s hope this week goes just as well.
This week in Maths, the children have worked hard learning about length and height and begun learning how to use a ruler. Next week, they will be focusing on time – thinking about days of the week, months of the year and will finish the week by making a clock, ready for the following week’s work.
In English, the children have enjoyed writing their own set of instructions for their thaumatrope toy focusing on time connectives. Next week they will be writing about what life was like as a Victorian child, thinking about their jobs, what they wore etc.
In History, the children made a timeline thinking about different objects from the past and present. Next week they will find out about life as a Victorian child worker. In Art, the children created a black and white portrait of themselves wearing their Victorian costumes.
In PSHCE, the children learnt about oral hygiene – a very useful topic. Next week they will be thinking about the Zones of Regulation and how they can use these strategies at home. They will also be making posters for the window filled with kind messages for people who pass by.
Please continue to read at home with your child. Your child can also log in to Bug Club to do some additional reading or to access some more books. If you would like to support your child with phonics to ensure that they are articulating their sounds correctly, please watch this video to support your child further:
Please look at the weekly overview before lessons start on Monday so that you are aware of each lesson coming up and what resources you may need. This can be found on the Year 1 page on the Eastwick website.
There are some great internet sites at the top left of the overview to support your child’s learning.
Showbie: Live sessions on Showbie will be at 8:40am, 10:00am, 11:45am, 1:30pm. Please remember not to upload any photos of your child’s face as this is a safeguarding issue. Please only take photos of your child’s work and submit their work on Showbie. Thank you.
We have loved seeing all your children on Showbie this week. We hope you all manage to have a good weekend and get plenty of rest. Remember to get some fresh air, go for walks and most importantly be kind to yourselves. Stay safe.

If you have an iPad please upload PocketPhonic Stories. This is an app that is excellent for teaching handwriting, phonics and reading. You will need to log in for your child but then they should be able to complete these on their own. There are certificates you can print off to motivate your child.
