Wow! What a gorgeous sunny weekend we had again.
I am so enjoying this weather, however, I think the weather might be changing this week, so make the most of it today.
Our first week using Class Dojo.
It would be great to see you all in person, but I have been enjoying seeing what you have been up to and it feels like a little community.
I’ll be posting a helpful link on our class story today called an ‘Introduction to Fairytales’. This clip is 4 minutes long and talks about the characteristics and what to expect when you read a fairytale. Great for discussion whilst you’re reading your fictional fairytales.
Parents a big well done for all you are doing with your kiddos, from the photos I have seen, they all look like they are enjoying themselves, learning lots of new skills and being super creative. So on those challenging days remember you are doing great! Year 1 give your adults a big thumbs up.
Kiddos, remember the challenge I set us last Monday to read 200 books on Get Epic?
Keep up the reading guys and I am so pleased you have been enjoying Get Epic.
Last week I baked something, well I didn’t actually use an oven so does that count as baking? What do you think, maybe I just made something? Anyway, I was inspired by all of the baking posts and thought I would jump on the band wagon, however, I knew it would be tricky to find baking ingredients (I could’t find a single chocolate drop) therefore, I decided to bake something a little different.
These are the ingredients I used, what do you think I baked?
I’ll let you know on Class Dojo later on today.
Missing you all!
Take care lovelies,
w/c 21st April
Good morning lovelies,
I hope you had a lovely Easter holiday. It has definitely been a very strange holiday, but thankfully we were blessed with sunny skies for the most of it.
What did you all get up to during the 2 weeks? I cannot wait to see your creations.
Hollie what a beautiful Easter wreath and Charlie S what a creative car you have made, thank you for sharing your pictures with me.
This holiday, I have been exploring more of our local area, going biking and walking. I even got back on my longboard. Who else has brushed off the cobwebs of an old hobby they used to enjoy during this time?
I haven’t fallen off my board, yet. But even if I do, I’ll just get back on it and try, try again.
I’m also trying to master a song from Pirates of the Caribbean on my violin. So a lot of perseverance this Easter. What have you been preserving with?
I’ve been looking at what you guys have been getting up to on Big Maths and Get Epic.
Wow! A lot of determined learners on Big Maths.
Gold stars to all of you who have set out to achieve your personal goals via your Learn its. Lots of improvement in answers and confidence (despite the shorter time). Well done!
I have bumped some of you up onto a different Learn It (if i can see a consistent improvement).
On Get Epic we have read 148 books and read for 1666 minutes! Well done guys, that is a lot of reading, especially as it doesn’t count the books you are reading at home.
Lets try and get to 200 books on Get Epic this week.
Over the last few days I have recommended a variety of fictional stories. These are basically stories that are made up, like fairytales. I found a poster to help you remember the difference between fiction and nonfiction books (it’s so hard to remember the difference sometimes).
I recently watched two films:
1. ‘Moana’, definitely adding this to my favourite films list. Moana is made up, it’s a fictional story.
2. A documentary of a surfer. It’s about the surfers life of how she preserved and showed great determination to achieve her goals. Non-fiction as it’s based on real life.
What stories/ films have you read/watched recently which are fiction or non-fiction? How can you tell they are real or not?
We have a new online classroom, Class Dojo. This Easter I have been looking at an online platform for our learning, so I hope you’ll come and join me. I’ll be posting different messages, learning ideas and other things- so stay tuned. I’m going to upload the music video that Mrs Ling shared with me too, it’s really fun (I like the squirrel with the violin).
You will also be able to see my new Learning Poster for this term. This should help you with what the kiddos should be doing daily, as well as give you a rough idea of topics and weekly ideas. Parents, again, please use this as a guideline and I hope you find it useful and not stressful.
I’ll be posting some sensory activities in the coming week to help with fine/gross motor skills too.
Missing you lots Yr1.
Happy Easter Holiday!
