What a fabulous week we have had!

Class 1 have done a fantastic job exploring number lines and what makes up 2 digit numbers. We are exploring number and how useful it is to see maths opportunities all around us. Red tops have discovered the world is packed full of shapes.  We have been exploring designing an animal habitat and thinking about the skills we will use and equipment we will need to do this.

 It has been lovely to see you all on Zoom and some of you in school. I hope you all have a lovely weekend and have a bit of a rest. 

Just to confirm, the zoom calls for class one will take place at 10:45 now instead of 11.00

Thank you Class 1 for working so hard to complete all your tasks at home. It is lovely to see you all on the zoom calls and I appreciate your efforts with this.

I apologies for Friday’s zoom session, I was logged on but the internet at school would not let me start the meeting. We hope this was a one off issue. In the session I was going to discuss our PSHE focus ‘Too much selfie isn’t healthy’ I have found a fabulous book called 'Kindness Grows' that I will read for the children on one of the other meetings.

Just to confirm, there will be a zoom call each day at 11 am.

 If any of these are not possible, do not worry. All information about learning content will be uploaded to the class page each week.

I want to make the sessions no longer than 20 minutes, as I realise it takes lots of concentration for wiggly bottoms.

I realise these are really difficult times and it may be difficult to get through everything.

If you have any questions or worries at all please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

 

ZOOM – I am scheduling a zoom meeting for 11 am everyday. This will give everyone a chance to ask any questions and give me an opportunity to give you some lesson input. We understand if you are not able to make it every day but it would be lovely to see you all.

WB 13.07.20   

                                                                       Hello Everyone!

Our last week thinking about The Seaside together and our last week of term!

I have been trying to get my grown- up children to say ‘She sells sea shells on the sea shore’ as quickly as they can. Why don’t you have a go. I love sentences which have a lot of the same sounds.

I hope you have been enjoying some of our activities. Here are a few more to try.

                                                               Love from Mrs Oxford

 

Can you make your own shaker? You need an empty, clean and dry container and something to put in side to make the sound when you shake it. Rice works well, or sand, pasta, lentils, gravel or something like paperclips. You can experiment with the sounds of different fillings until you find one you like the best (or make more than one shaker!) Make sure you get a grown up to help tighten or sticky-tape the lid on – you don’t want it to fly off and shower rice everywhere! Can you move your shaker to sound like the sea side – the waves rolling in and out?

Literacy:    I have found two more lovely books to listen to online: ‘A House for a Hermit Crab’ by Eric Carle and ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ -poems by Giles Andreae.

Can you find out about hermit crabs and other creatures that live in rockpools? You could make a little picture book with labels to take to the seaside next time you go, so that you know what to look for.

Maths:       Can you make a rock pool collage from different shapes of material and paper? You will need to ask an adult to help cut different shapes out – circles, triangles and rectangles. Once you have your shapes stuck in place you could add some string or wool for seaweed.

RE: Hope – We hope and trust that things will start getting back to a sort of normal soon and that you all will be back at school after the summer. Talk to a grown up about what you are looking forward to doing when you return to school. Can you draw a picture? I would love to see it.

Phonics:       How did your ‘p’ hunt go? Did you picnic on pickles and pine nuts and pineapple? Perhaps putting pesto on pasta or patting it on potatoes?

This week we will listen out for ‘i’.  Another tricky one as it is most often inside words.

 

 WB 06.07.20

Hello Everyone!

We are still thinking about The Seaside.

I have been remembering playing cricket on the beach with my cousins when I was little and building massive sandcastles with moats and defensive walls. Why not ask your parents and grandparents what they remember best about trips to the seaside when they were little. Did they like the same things as you?

Why not have a go at some of the activities below. 

                                                                                               

                                                               Love from Mrs Oxford

Can you design your own sandcastle? Draw what it looks like and how you would decorate it (I like using shells). If you have some sand at home, or go on a trip to the beach, you could make it and send us a photo! Is it easier to use dry or wet sand? Why do you think that is?

Literacy:    I have found two more lovely books to listen to online: ‘What the Ladybird heard at the Seaside’ by Julia Donaldson (the version read by Mrs Noble) and ‘The Rainbow Fish’ by Marcus Pfister.

Can you make your own list of what you can hear at the seaside?

Perhaps you could colour your own rainbow fish and label and put in the window with your rainbow.

Maths:       My children always loved playing with water, I bet you do too.   Can you find lots of different size containers to fill and pour with in your bath or paddling pool? Which holds the most? How do you know? How many of the smallest container of water will fit in the largest container?

RE:         Hope – Let’s play hide and seek!

Ask a grown up to hide your favourite toy (and not to make it too easy). Have a go at seeking for it yourself, but don’t’ be afraid to ask for help. Celebrate finding your toy together. You trusted your grown up to keep your toy safe and with that trust you were showing and feeling hope. You hoped your toy would be safe and that you would be reunited again and trusted your grown up to make it so.

Phonics:

How did your ‘t’ hunt go? I expect you remembered tent and torch. Did you find any ‘t’ seaside words? Turtle, tentacles………

This week we will listen out for ‘p’. I am looking forward to a picnic by the sea. 

PE:      In normal times we would have been taking part in our sports day activities this week, so it would be lovely to try to do something to keep yourself fit and healthy. If it is fine you could have your own races and games in your garden or at the park with your family, or go on a bike ride or for a walk. If you are stuck inside you could try an easy kids Zumba or Dance Party on YouTube or try one of the activities from this site –https://www.youthsporttrust.org/free-home-learning-resources-early-years

Perhaps you could make a healthy snack to have afterwards. Whatever you do, have fun!

 

 

 WB 29.06.20

Hello Everyone!

Our topic for the last three weeks of this school term is The Seaside. I would love to be on the beach at the moment as it is so hot outside while I am writing this. I can imagine myself paddling in the sea and walking for miles collecting pretty stones and shells. What do you like to do at the seaside? Do you like building sandcastles; exploring rockpools; trying to eat your ice-cream before it melts?

Why not have a go at some of the activities below.  Have fun!

                                            (These activities are suitable for Red Tops.)

                                                          Love from Mrs Oxford

Can you draw some things that you would need on a trip to the beach? Don’t forget the ones that will keep you safe in the sun. Check with a grown up that you have remembered them all.

Literacy:   See if you can find some seaside books online to share. ‘Sally and the Limpet’ by Simon James (read by Ms Fidler) is a good one, or ‘Sharing a Shell’ by Julia Donaldson (read by Pamela Leach).

Can you draw a picture of your family at the seaside? What is everyone doing? Can you make labels for them?

Maths:       Do you have any shells at home? I have several in my garden that my children brought home from various beaches. If you haven’t perhaps a grown up can help you draw some. There are lots of different shapes. How many can you find? Can you make a pattern that repeats with them?

RE:             I expect you hope to see more of your friends again, now that we are able to meet up safely.  We cannot hold hands yet, but perhaps a grown up could help you to make a big circle of handprints all touching, in paint on paper or even just using water on the pavement. As you make each print say or think the name of someone you hope to see again soon and send them happy thoughts of you all together.

Phonics:    How did your ‘a’ hunt go? That was tricky! I found apple, alarm clock, apple juice and lots of ants outside my back door!

This week we will listen out for ‘t’.  I am trying to think of ‘t’ words at the seaside, but so far, I have just found lots of ‘s’ words! 

 

WB 22.06.20

Hello Everyone!

I hope you enjoyed the topic about ‘Dogs’.

The weather forecast for the week ahead tells us that it is going to HOT!!!

So, what nicer thing to do on a hot day than make a den to create some shade?

Therefore our topic this week is ‘Dens and Camping’.

                                            (These activities are suitable for Red Tops.)

                                                   Love from Mrs Highton

Can you make a den in your garden or in your house? Perhaps you could think of a password, and only people who know the password can come in. Can you make it cosy inside, or draw pictures to decorate it?

Literacy:

What would you need to take on a camping holiday? Ask someone in your family to help you make a list. You could build a pretend campfire, and tell or read stories around it.

Maths:

Triangles: Triangles are a great shape to use to make pictures of tents. Can you cut out a triangle, and make it look like a tent. Perhaps you could make a whole campsite full of tents. How many sides and corners do triangles have? Can you spot any triangles around your home?

RE: Hope

We are all hoping to be able to go on holiday again soon. What things do you hope to do on your holiday? Can you draw a picture of yourself having fun?

Phonics:

How did your ‘S’ hunt go? Did anyone manage Sausages, Sauce, Salad and Strawberries for their tea?!

This week we will listen out for ‘a’. You may not find as many objects that start with this sound in your house, but you might find some pictures in your books.

 

 

WB 15.06.20

Hello Everyone!

It has been lovely to see some of you back in the classroom this week; things are a little different, but we have been so pleased with the way everyone managed the changes. If you are at home, we are thinking about you, and hope you find some of these activities fun. Again, these activities are suitable for Red Tops.

This week our topic is still ‘Dogs’

                                                                  Love from Mrs Highton

We know that Kipper & his family have a dog called Floppy. When the family chose Floppy from the dogs’ home, they all wanted different types of dogs before they saw Floppy. One was too big, another too little. Can you think of other words to describe different types of dogs?

Literacy:

There is a lovely book called ‘Some dogs do’ on the booktrust website with some discussion points: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/some-dogs-do/

If you or your pet (if you have one) had a super power, what would it be?

Maths:

If you can (with a little adult help!) draw 10 paw prints & cut them out. Write the numbers 1-10 on the back (1 on the first paw print, 2 on the next...) Ask someone in your family to hide them around the house. Can you find them all? How do you know that you have found them all? Can you put them into numerical order? And backwards?

RE:

Did your magic wands work? This week you could draw around everybody’s hands and ask them to write their hopes or dreams onto the outlines. Then you could cut them out and make a ‘circle of hope’ by sticking them together.

Phonics:

We are going to start to think about the first sounds in words. This week we will listen out for ‘S’. To make this sound correctly, make the soft ‘ssss’ sound of a snake.

Can you go on a treasure hunt around your home & find as many things as you can that begin with ‘S’? Spaghetti, Soap, Slippers….. I bet you can find loads!

 

 

WB 08.06.20

Hello Everyone!

I am polishing my shoes and sharpening my pencils, and really looking forward to seeing many of you this week. Things will be a little different in the classroom, but I am sure you will soon get used to the changes, and enjoy being back in school. As the majority of the Blue –Tops will be returning, the suggested activities here are suitable for the Red-Tops, but the topics will be the same both at home or in school.

This week our topic is ‘Dogs’

(using ‘Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy’ as inspiration.)

Love from Mrs Highton

Hairy Maclary has his own website: https://www.hairymaclary.com/  where you will find more information about the books, and some games to play.

How would you look after a dog? Think about food, exercise, health, grooming etc.

Can you draw a picture of Hairy Maclary?

Literacy:

If you don’t have a copy of Hairy Maclary form Donaldson’s Dairy, you can access it via the Bookstrust website: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/hairy-maclary/ 

This is a lovely book to share. Listen out for the rhyming words. Maybe you could think of some new names for the dogs?

Maths:

The dogs in the story leave their homes to join Hairy Maclary for a walk. Each home has a number outside. These are numbers made of 2 digits, so they are quite tricky. Does your house have a number or a name? If you go on a walk near some houses, look out for the numbers on them. You might notice a pattern. You could make numbers to stick on the doors of the rooms in your house.

RE:

Our theme this half term is ‘Hope’. Can you make a magic wand & ask everyone in your family what they are hoping for? Maybe a few hopes will come true very soon.

 

Phonics:

As we have been spotting rhymes in Hairy Maclary, can you match these animals to a rhyming word?

cat

dog

mouse

snake

parrot

house

carrot

hat

log

cake

 

 


WB 01.06.20

Hello Everyone!

I am really looking forward to seeing some of you again very soon. It will be lovely to be back at school, and to find out about all the things you have been up to in this amazing sunshine. I wonder if I will recognise you?!

In the meantime, here are some ideas for the coming week. I thought it would be a great opportunity to think about and recognise some of the people who have been busy keeping us safe, growing and delivering food, and helping people to get better again.

 I hope you enjoy these activities.

Love from Mrs Highton

 

People who help us:

Design your own truck/lorry. Make up your own logo. What have you been busy delivering?

People have been making sure that the electricity supply keeps going. Carry out a survey of things that use electricity in your house. Which object do you think is the most important?

Maybe you could make some healthy vegetable soup using some of the ingredients from your healthy shopping list? (see below).

Literacy:

Make a shopping list including lots of healthy foods.

Make a ‘Thank You’ card for a key worker and write a message inside.

Write a riddle about a vegetable. Can your family guess what it is?

Maths: This week I have included some word problems for you to solve. You may need a grown up to help you to read the questions. Then you will have to find the important information that will help you solve the puzzles.

They are attached to the end of this grid.

RE: Sunday 31st May was ‘Pentecost’. This was when Jesus’ friends got together to talk about Jesus going to Heaven. Suddenly there was a gust of wind, and then an amazing fire appeared. The fire separated into flames resting above the disciples heads. Then the disciples started to speak in different languages. Peter, one of Jesus’ friends told the people that they had been blessed by the Holy Spirit.

Can you make a wind twirl to show the ‘special’ wind? Draw a spiral on a piece of paper, and decorate it. Then cut along the spiral lines, and attach it to a stick with some string or wool. It should spin around in the breeze.

Phonics: Our tricky word this week is: ‘were’, which we use when we talk about something that has already happened to several people or things. Perhaps you can practise this word by describing some of things you have done with your family?

 2 syllable words: You could write the 2 words on separate pieces of paper and mix them up. Now can you match them together to make commonly used words?

back/pack  lock/down  bin/bag  sun/hat  lunch/box

 Addition_and_Subtraction_Word_Problems.docx

 WB 18.5.20

Hello Everyone!

This week has been a little different, I was able to see my daughter Elizabeth for the first times in ages, and we took Betty for a walk on the racecourse in York. I think Elizabeth was more excited about seeing Betty than me, but never mind! Maybe you have been able to see some other members of your families too.

Thank you for working so hard, again! It has been lovely to receive photographs of smiling children, enjoying both some of the activities suggested, but also discovering the fun of baking, gardening and riding bikes.

Here are another few ideas for the week ahead, this time on the topic of ‘Dinosaurs’, which I chose because many of you often bring dinosaur toys in for Show and Tell.

I hope you enjoy this topic.

Stay safe, and enjoy half term next week.

Love from Mrs Highton

 

Dinosaurs: There is a well resourced Dinosaur collection from CBeebies (search: Dinosaurs-CBeebies-BBC) with loads of great ideas for crafts, games and a vast collection of TV programmes called Andy’s prehistoric adventures. These are about 15 minutes long, and not too scary (but you might want to watch with a grown up if you don’t like ‘real’ dinosaurs very much!)

There are many suggestions there, but you might also want to find some stones and paint them to look like dinosaur eggs. Or if you have a shoe box, maybe you could make an environment for a toy dinosaur with volcanic scenery, plants, rocks and trees etc.

Literacy: Can you create a brand new dinosaur of your own? Try to write a few sentences to describe it. Has it got 6 horns? Can it fly? What does it eat?  Think of a name for it…. Eden-saurus? Reeva-ceratops? Maybe you could draw and colour a picture to go with your description.

Maths: Adding 3 groups of objects, and then 3 numbers together.

This week, can you create 3 groups of objects, maybe by throwing a dice to generate each group? Find the total by counting all the objects. Now, instead of creating 3 groups, use a written digit for the first group; then count on from this number to find the total. When you are ready try to use digits for groups 1 and 2, and then finally try adding 3 digits together. You will need to count on by putting totals in your head as you go.

RE: On Thursday 21st May, it is Ascension Day. This is when, 40 days after Easter, Jesus rose up from earth to go and live with God, the Father, in Heaven. Can you write the word Jesus in big letters, and then (if you have any) decorate each word with cotton wool, to remind us of the clouds in the sky as Jesus rose. Or you could draw a cloud above each letter.

Phonics: 2 tricky words this week, but similar. They are ‘come’ and ‘some’. Perhaps you could use these in your dinosaur descriptions?

 Again, using phoneme frames with 4 spaces, practise the sound ‘oo/oo’ with words with 2 consonants at the beginning or at the end…

Spoon/ crook/broom/cooker/scoop/gloom/stood/proof

 

s

p

oo

n

 

 

 

 

 

 

WB 11.05.20

Hello Everyone!

I have really enjoyed walking my dog Betty, and looking at all the houses decorated for VE day. How lovely that the sun was shining too!

I was so pleased to speak to some of you last week, and to chat to your parents too. It sounds like everyone is doing really well, and staying cheerful. It was lovely to hear that you have been enjoying some of the activities that I have suggested; I am aware that can seem to be plenty of content, so please feel free to select any ideas that are of interest, there is no expectation that everything has to be attempted. And of course, you may be pursuing other topics that are relevant to your individual family.

This week we are looking at ‘The Alphabet’ …. I’m sure you will enjoy singing the alphabet song, just as much as your family will enjoy hearing it!

Take care, I miss you all.

Love from Mrs Highton

 

Literacy:  Can you make 2 colourful alphabet banners? One using lower case letters and the other with upper case (capital letters). These will help you with other activities. Write your full name in capital letters. When you have completed your Alphabet Treasure Hunt (see below), put some of your objects into a bag, and pull out 3 of them. Arrange them into alphabetical order using your banners to help you. Write a list each time.

Maths: This week we are looking at ‘capacity’, and that some containers have a greater capacity than others. Often ‘taller’ containers look like they will hold more, but this is not necessarily the case. There is a well explained session from nrich maths… don’t worry too much about needing food colouring!

https://nrich.maths.org/12491 

RE: I am sure you have enjoyed sharing lots of stories with your families; there is nothing better than snuggling up with a good book. You may remember that sometimes Rev. Jan brings her special pink book into school. This is a Bible, a book that tells us about God and Jesus. There are many stories in the New Testament that tell us about just how special Jesus was. One of these is when Jesus and his friends are in boat when a storm appears. His friends were very frightened, but Jesus was so special he could tell the storm to go away. Can you draw a picture of the boat in the storm and another picture of the calm waters and sky? (If you have a Bible at home, you can find this story in:  Luke ch 8 v 22-26.)

The Alphabet:

Try doing an alphabet treasure hunt. See if you can find one object for each sound in your house or garden (you may need to use pictures for some of the trickier ones!). Keep hold of your collection, so that you can use them for a literacy activity.

Make a decorated sign for your bedroom using capital letters.

Sing the alphabet song… and teach it to your family.

Phonics: This week, the tricky word is ‘like’. Can you write several sentences starting with ‘I like to…’ ?

Again, using phoneme frames with 4 spaces, practise the sound ‘oa’ with words with 2 consonants at the beginning or at the end…

boast/ cloak/float/roast/ croak/toast/coach/bloat/throat

 

b

oa

s

WB 04.05.20

Hello Everyone!

Another week has passed, hopefully you are all staying well and happy.

I hope you enjoyed finding out more about your houses last week. I am looking forward to seeing your work and hearing all about your homes. Seeing and hearing? Aha! Our senses! Let’s use the coming week to find out more about our 5 senses. We use our senses to find out about the world in which we live, through seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and touching.

Here are some activities for you to try… and if you can think of any others, please explore your own ideas too. Take care, and as ever, keep smiling! Hope to see you soon.

Love from Mrs Highton 

Literacy: Make a booklet about your 5 senses. You could draw your eyes and colour them in. Then you could write and finish this sentence ‘I like to see….’ On the next page, draw an ear and finish this sentence ‘I like to hear…’ Complete for all the senses.
Maths: We are going to count in 10s and 5s this week, and then practise using 10p and 5p coins if you have any. Have a quick look at your hands to remind yourself how many fingers you have. You will need to borrow fingers from your family…. Counting in 10s, how many fingers are in your house altogether? Now try the same with 5s. Make collections of any objects, either in groups of 10 or 5, and count. You can use 10p and 5p coins as well. Perhaps you could make a toy shop, and use these coins to buy a selection of goods?
RE: At the moment we are not able to touch some of the people we love, such as our grandparents (although you are probably able to see them on your tablets etc, which is lovely.) Draw around both your hands and cut out. Join your hands together at the ‘wrist’. On each fingertip write the names of the people you are praying for just now.

Senses: There are lots of great experiments you can do to help you learn more about your senses.

Taste: It is your tongue that lets you know the different taste of foods. If you have these foods, try to describe how they taste… lemon/salt/sugar/dark chocolate. Think about these words and try to match them to the foods; sweet, salty, sour, bitter.

Smell: Perhaps your parents can find some strong smelling things in your house, and without looking, can you smell them and say what they are? (eg bubble bath/coffee/onion/curry powder etc)

Touch: Make a collection of objects with different textures. Do they feel rough? hard? smooth? soft?

There are some listening activities on this website

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/eyfs-listening-skills-sound-games-1/zm72kmn

And of course, you can have endless games of I-spy!

Phonics: This week, the tricky word is ‘have’. You can tie this in with our topic by writing these sentences... I have seen a.../I have heard a....etc.

Using phoneme frames with 4 spaces, practised the sound 'igh' with words with 2 consonants at the beginning....flight/bright/plight/slight/fright

f l igh t

 

 

 WB 27.04.20

Hello Everyone!

The weather has certainly been kind, and the sunshine has meant that the bees have been busy. I hope you managed to spot a few, and that you enjoyed some of the activities suggested.

As we are all spending so much time in our homes, I thought that 'Houses' would be an ideal topic this week. Here are some ideas for you to try, although if you come up with other activities, I would love to see your work when we see each other again.

 Literacy: Can you make an 'estate agents' brochure about your house? You could begin with the front cover, with a drawing of the front or back of your house, and your address written underneath. Write the title 'For Sale' in large colourful letters. Now you can add more pages to your booklet, you can do as many as you want to, describing some of the rooms in your house.

RE/Literacy: Our homes are 'special places' where we feel safe. You could draw the outline of a house, showing the rooms. You could write out or finish these sentences in each room.

I like to be in my kitchen because..../ I like to be in my bedroom because..../I like to be in my sitting room because.... etc.

Maths: Play 'The House that Jack Built'. Ask an adult to draw the outline of a house with a roof, 2 chimneys, a door, a patio window, 3 other smaller windows and some flowers.

Red tops might want to play with one dice. If you throw 6, colour in the roof. 5 = chimneys, 4 = patio doors, 3 = windows, 2 = door & 1 = flowers. Maybe you could have several houses and play this game with your family.

Blue tops. Time to practise some subtraction! Use 2 dice (or roll one twice). Create a subtraction problem with the 2 numbers, always making sure you use the highest number first. If the answer is 0, colour the roof. 1 = door, 2 = chimney, 3 = windows, 4 = flowers and 5 = patio doors.

Dice are a great way to generate addition problems too.

 What is your house made from? Have a good look at the outside of your house. Can you see any of these materials? Brick, wood, glass, plastic, metal, stone, mortar. Draw a diagram and label the different materials.

Look at the brick pattern on your house. If you have lego or duplo, try to recreate a wall with the same pattern. Or you could use a duplo brick or any rectangle to print this pattern with paint.

 Phonics: The new tricky word this week is 'said'. Perhaps you could practise writing a sentence using tricky words from your list, and adding 'said granny' etc at the end.

We can change these cvc words into new words by adding a consonant at the beginning. Can you work out which sound to add? (Some may have a couple of possibilities.)

For example: pot becomes spot.

Try these... rip / rack / top / peck / pin / ran / lap / lad / win.

 I hope you enjoy trying some of these ideas...

 Let's hope we will be able to return to school as soon as possible, but in the meantime, keep safe, and enjoy learning about your home.

Lots of love from Mrs Highton.

Thank you Class 1 for working so hard to complete all your tasks at home. It is lovely to see you all on the zoom calls and I appreciate your efforts with this.

I apologies for Friday’s zoom session, I was logged on but the internet at school would not let me start the meeting. We hope this was a one off issue. In the session I was going to discuss our PSHE focus ‘Too much selfie isn’t healthy’ I have found a fabulous book called 'Kindness Grows' that I will read for the children on one of the other meetings.

Just to confirm, there will be a zoom call each day at 11 am.

 If any of these are not possible, do not worry. All information about learning content will be uploaded to the class page each week.

I want to make the sessions no longer than 20 minutes, as I realise it takes lots of concentration for wiggly bottoms.

 

See you soon,

                                                                       Hello Everyone!

Our last week thinking about The Seaside together and our last week of term!

I have been trying to get my grown- up children to say ‘She sells sea shells on the sea shore’ as quickly as they can. Why don’t you have a go. I love sentences which have a lot of the same sounds.

I hope you have been enjoying some of our activities. Here are a few more to try.

                                                               Love from Mrs Oxford

 

Can you make your own shaker? You need an empty, clean and dry container and something to put in side to make the sound when you shake it. Rice works well, or sand, pasta, lentils, gravel or something like paperclips. You can experiment with the sounds of different fillings until you find one you like the best (or make more than one shaker!) Make sure you get a grown up to help tighten or sticky-tape the lid on – you don’t want it to fly off and shower rice everywhere! Can you move your shaker to sound like the sea side – the waves rolling in and out?

Literacy:    I have found two more lovely books to listen to online: ‘A House for a Hermit Crab’ by Eric Carle and ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ -poems by Giles Andreae.

Can you find out about hermit crabs and other creatures that live in rockpools? You could make a little picture book with labels to take to the seaside next time you go, so that you know what to look for.

Maths:       Can you make a rock pool collage from different shapes of material and paper? You will need to ask an adult to help cut different shapes out – circles, triangles and rectangles. Once you have your shapes stuck in place you could add some string or wool for seaweed.

RE: Hope – We hope and trust that things will start getting back to a sort of normal soon and that you all will be back at school after the summer. Talk to a grown up about what you are looking forward to doing when you return to school. Can you draw a picture? I would love to see it.

Phonics:       How did your ‘p’ hunt go? Did you picnic on pickles and pine nuts and pineapple? Perhaps putting pesto on pasta or patting it on potatoes?

This week we will listen out for ‘i’.  Another tricky one as it is most often inside words.

 

 WB 06.07.20

Hello Everyone!

We are still thinking about The Seaside.

I have been remembering playing cricket on the beach with my cousins when I was little and building massive sandcastles with moats and defensive walls. Why not ask your parents and grandparents what they remember best about trips to the seaside when they were little. Did they like the same things as you?

Why not have a go at some of the activities below. 

                                                                                               

                                                               Love from Mrs Oxford

Can you design your own sandcastle? Draw what it looks like and how you would decorate it (I like using shells). If you have some sand at home, or go on a trip to the beach, you could make it and send us a photo! Is it easier to use dry or wet sand? Why do you think that is?

Literacy:    I have found two more lovely books to listen to online: ‘What the Ladybird heard at the Seaside’ by Julia Donaldson (the version read by Mrs Noble) and ‘The Rainbow Fish’ by Marcus Pfister.

Can you make your own list of what you can hear at the seaside?

Perhaps you could colour your own rainbow fish and label and put in the window with your rainbow.

Maths:       My children always loved playing with water, I bet you do too.   Can you find lots of different size containers to fill and pour with in your bath or paddling pool? Which holds the most? How do you know? How many of the smallest container of water will fit in the largest container?

RE:         Hope – Let’s play hide and seek!

Ask a grown up to hide your favourite toy (and not to make it too easy). Have a go at seeking for it yourself, but don’t’ be afraid to ask for help. Celebrate finding your toy together. You trusted your grown up to keep your toy safe and with that trust you were showing and feeling hope. You hoped your toy would be safe and that you would be reunited again and trusted your grown up to make it so.

Phonics:

How did your ‘t’ hunt go? I expect you remembered tent and torch. Did you find any ‘t’ seaside words? Turtle, tentacles………

This week we will listen out for ‘p’. I am looking forward to a picnic by the sea. 

PE:      In normal times we would have been taking part in our sports day activities this week, so it would be lovely to try to do something to keep yourself fit and healthy. If it is fine you could have your own races and games in your garden or at the park with your family, or go on a bike ride or for a walk. If you are stuck inside you could try an easy kids Zumba or Dance Party on YouTube or try one of the activities from this site –https://www.youthsporttrust.org/free-home-learning-resources-early-years

Perhaps you could make a healthy snack to have afterwards. Whatever you do, have fun!

 

 

 WB 29.06.20

Hello Everyone!

Our topic for the last three weeks of this school term is The Seaside. I would love to be on the beach at the moment as it is so hot outside while I am writing this. I can imagine myself paddling in the sea and walking for miles collecting pretty stones and shells. What do you like to do at the seaside? Do you like building sandcastles; exploring rockpools; trying to eat your ice-cream before it melts?

Why not have a go at some of the activities below.  Have fun!

                                            (These activities are suitable for Red Tops.)

                                                          Love from Mrs Oxford

Can you draw some things that you would need on a trip to the beach? Don’t forget the ones that will keep you safe in the sun. Check with a grown up that you have remembered them all.

Literacy:   See if you can find some seaside books online to share. ‘Sally and the Limpet’ by Simon James (read by Ms Fidler) is a good one, or ‘Sharing a Shell’ by Julia Donaldson (read by Pamela Leach).

Can you draw a picture of your family at the seaside? What is everyone doing? Can you make labels for them?

Maths:       Do you have any shells at home? I have several in my garden that my children brought home from various beaches. If you haven’t perhaps a grown up can help you draw some. There are lots of different shapes. How many can you find? Can you make a pattern that repeats with them?

RE:             I expect you hope to see more of your friends again, now that we are able to meet up safely.  We cannot hold hands yet, but perhaps a grown up could help you to make a big circle of handprints all touching, in paint on paper or even just using water on the pavement. As you make each print say or think the name of someone you hope to see again soon and send them happy thoughts of you all together.

Phonics:    How did your ‘a’ hunt go? That was tricky! I found apple, alarm clock, apple juice and lots of ants outside my back door!

This week we will listen out for ‘t’.  I am trying to think of ‘t’ words at the seaside, but so far, I have just found lots of ‘s’ words! 

 

WB 22.06.20

Hello Everyone!

I hope you enjoyed the topic about ‘Dogs’.

The weather forecast for the week ahead tells us that it is going to HOT!!!

So, what nicer thing to do on a hot day than make a den to create some shade?

Therefore our topic this week is ‘Dens and Camping’.

                                            (These activities are suitable for Red Tops.)

                                                   Love from Mrs Highton

Can you make a den in your garden or in your house? Perhaps you could think of a password, and only people who know the password can come in. Can you make it cosy inside, or draw pictures to decorate it?

Literacy:

What would you need to take on a camping holiday? Ask someone in your family to help you make a list. You could build a pretend campfire, and tell or read stories around it.

Maths:

Triangles: Triangles are a great shape to use to make pictures of tents. Can you cut out a triangle, and make it look like a tent. Perhaps you could make a whole campsite full of tents. How many sides and corners do triangles have? Can you spot any triangles around your home?

RE: Hope

We are all hoping to be able to go on holiday again soon. What things do you hope to do on your holiday? Can you draw a picture of yourself having fun?

Phonics:

How did your ‘S’ hunt go? Did anyone manage Sausages, Sauce, Salad and Strawberries for their tea?!

This week we will listen out for ‘a’. You may not find as many objects that start with this sound in your house, but you might find some pictures in your books.

 

 

WB 15.06.20

Hello Everyone!

It has been lovely to see some of you back in the classroom this week; things are a little different, but we have been so pleased with the way everyone managed the changes. If you are at home, we are thinking about you, and hope you find some of these activities fun. Again, these activities are suitable for Red Tops.

This week our topic is still ‘Dogs’

                                                                  Love from Mrs Highton

We know that Kipper & his family have a dog called Floppy. When the family chose Floppy from the dogs’ home, they all wanted different types of dogs before they saw Floppy. One was too big, another too little. Can you think of other words to describe different types of dogs?

Literacy:

There is a lovely book called ‘Some dogs do’ on the booktrust website with some discussion points: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/some-dogs-do/

If you or your pet (if you have one) had a super power, what would it be?

Maths:

If you can (with a little adult help!) draw 10 paw prints & cut them out. Write the numbers 1-10 on the back (1 on the first paw print, 2 on the next...) Ask someone in your family to hide them around the house. Can you find them all? How do you know that you have found them all? Can you put them into numerical order? And backwards?

RE:

Did your magic wands work? This week you could draw around everybody’s hands and ask them to write their hopes or dreams onto the outlines. Then you could cut them out and make a ‘circle of hope’ by sticking them together.

Phonics:

We are going to start to think about the first sounds in words. This week we will listen out for ‘S’. To make this sound correctly, make the soft ‘ssss’ sound of a snake.

Can you go on a treasure hunt around your home & find as many things as you can that begin with ‘S’? Spaghetti, Soap, Slippers….. I bet you can find loads!

 

 

WB 08.06.20

Hello Everyone!

I am polishing my shoes and sharpening my pencils, and really looking forward to seeing many of you this week. Things will be a little different in the classroom, but I am sure you will soon get used to the changes, and enjoy being back in school. As the majority of the Blue –Tops will be returning, the suggested activities here are suitable for the Red-Tops, but the topics will be the same both at home or in school.

This week our topic is ‘Dogs’

(using ‘Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy’ as inspiration.)

Love from Mrs Highton

Hairy Maclary has his own website: https://www.hairymaclary.com/  where you will find more information about the books, and some games to play.

How would you look after a dog? Think about food, exercise, health, grooming etc.

Can you draw a picture of Hairy Maclary?

Literacy:

If you don’t have a copy of Hairy Maclary form Donaldson’s Dairy, you can access it via the Bookstrust website: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/hairy-maclary/ 

This is a lovely book to share. Listen out for the rhyming words. Maybe you could think of some new names for the dogs?

Maths:

The dogs in the story leave their homes to join Hairy Maclary for a walk. Each home has a number outside. These are numbers made of 2 digits, so they are quite tricky. Does your house have a number or a name? If you go on a walk near some houses, look out for the numbers on them. You might notice a pattern. You could make numbers to stick on the doors of the rooms in your house.

RE:

Our theme this half term is ‘Hope’. Can you make a magic wand & ask everyone in your family what they are hoping for? Maybe a few hopes will come true very soon.

 

Phonics:

As we have been spotting rhymes in Hairy Maclary, can you match these animals to a rhyming word?

cat

dog

mouse

snake

parrot

house

carrot

hat

log

cake

 

 


WB 01.06.20

Hello Everyone!

I am really looking forward to seeing some of you again very soon. It will be lovely to be back at school, and to find out about all the things you have been up to in this amazing sunshine. I wonder if I will recognise you?!

In the meantime, here are some ideas for the coming week. I thought it would be a great opportunity to think about and recognise some of the people who have been busy keeping us safe, growing and delivering food, and helping people to get better again.

 I hope you enjoy these activities.

Love from Mrs Highton

 

People who help us:

Design your own truck/lorry. Make up your own logo. What have you been busy delivering?

People have been making sure that the electricity supply keeps going. Carry out a survey of things that use electricity in your house. Which object do you think is the most important?

Maybe you could make some healthy vegetable soup using some of the ingredients from your healthy shopping list? (see below).

Literacy:

Make a shopping list including lots of healthy foods.

Make a ‘Thank You’ card for a key worker and write a message inside.

Write a riddle about a vegetable. Can your family guess what it is?

Maths: This week I have included some word problems for you to solve. You may need a grown up to help you to read the questions. Then you will have to find the important information that will help you solve the puzzles.

They are attached to the end of this grid.

RE: Sunday 31st May was ‘Pentecost’. This was when Jesus’ friends got together to talk about Jesus going to Heaven. Suddenly there was a gust of wind, and then an amazing fire appeared. The fire separated into flames resting above the disciples heads. Then the disciples started to speak in different languages. Peter, one of Jesus’ friends told the people that they had been blessed by the Holy Spirit.

Can you make a wind twirl to show the ‘special’ wind? Draw a spiral on a piece of paper, and decorate it. Then cut along the spiral lines, and attach it to a stick with some string or wool. It should spin around in the breeze.

Phonics: Our tricky word this week is: ‘were’, which we use when we talk about something that has already happened to several people or things. Perhaps you can practise this word by describing some of things you have done with your family?

 2 syllable words: You could write the 2 words on separate pieces of paper and mix them up. Now can you match them together to make commonly used words?

back/pack  lock/down  bin/bag  sun/hat  lunch/box

 WB 18.5.20

Hello Everyone!

This week has been a little different, I was able to see my daughter Elizabeth for the first times in ages, and we took Betty for a walk on the racecourse in York. I think Elizabeth was more excited about seeing Betty than me, but never mind! Maybe you have been able to see some other members of your families too.

Thank you for working so hard, again! It has been lovely to receive photographs of smiling children, enjoying both some of the activities suggested, but also discovering the fun of baking, gardening and riding bikes.

Here are another few ideas for the week ahead, this time on the topic of ‘Dinosaurs’, which I chose because many of you often bring dinosaur toys in for Show and Tell.

I hope you enjoy this topic.

Stay safe, and enjoy half term next week.

Love from Mrs Highton

 

Dinosaurs: There is a well resourced Dinosaur collection from CBeebies (search: Dinosaurs-CBeebies-BBC) with loads of great ideas for crafts, games and a vast collection of TV programmes called Andy’s prehistoric adventures. These are about 15 minutes long, and not too scary (but you might want to watch with a grown up if you don’t like ‘real’ dinosaurs very much!)

There are many suggestions there, but you might also want to find some stones and paint them to look like dinosaur eggs. Or if you have a shoe box, maybe you could make an environment for a toy dinosaur with volcanic scenery, plants, rocks and trees etc.

Literacy: Can you create a brand new dinosaur of your own? Try to write a few sentences to describe it. Has it got 6 horns? Can it fly? What does it eat?  Think of a name for it…. Eden-saurus? Reeva-ceratops? Maybe you could draw and colour a picture to go with your description.

Maths: Adding 3 groups of objects, and then 3 numbers together.

This week, can you create 3 groups of objects, maybe by throwing a dice to generate each group? Find the total by counting all the objects. Now, instead of creating 3 groups, use a written digit for the first group; then count on from this number to find the total. When you are ready try to use digits for groups 1 and 2, and then finally try adding 3 digits together. You will need to count on by putting totals in your head as you go.

RE: On Thursday 21st May, it is Ascension Day. This is when, 40 days after Easter, Jesus rose up from earth to go and live with God, the Father, in Heaven. Can you write the word Jesus in big letters, and then (if you have any) decorate each word with cotton wool, to remind us of the clouds in the sky as Jesus rose. Or you could draw a cloud above each letter.

Phonics: 2 tricky words this week, but similar. They are ‘come’ and ‘some’. Perhaps you could use these in your dinosaur descriptions?

 Again, using phoneme frames with 4 spaces, practise the sound ‘oo/oo’ with words with 2 consonants at the beginning or at the end…

Spoon/ crook/broom/cooker/scoop/gloom/stood/proof

 

s

p

oo

n

 

 

 

 

 

 

WB 11.05.20

Hello Everyone!

I have really enjoyed walking my dog Betty, and looking at all the houses decorated for VE day. How lovely that the sun was shining too!

I was so pleased to speak to some of you last week, and to chat to your parents too. It sounds like everyone is doing really well, and staying cheerful. It was lovely to hear that you have been enjoying some of the activities that I have suggested; I am aware that can seem to be plenty of content, so please feel free to select any ideas that are of interest, there is no expectation that everything has to be attempted. And of course, you may be pursuing other topics that are relevant to your individual family.

This week we are looking at ‘The Alphabet’ …. I’m sure you will enjoy singing the alphabet song, just as much as your family will enjoy hearing it!

Take care, I miss you all.

Love from Mrs Highton

 

Literacy:  Can you make 2 colourful alphabet banners? One using lower case letters and the other with upper case (capital letters). These will help you with other activities. Write your full name in capital letters. When you have completed your Alphabet Treasure Hunt (see below), put some of your objects into a bag, and pull out 3 of them. Arrange them into alphabetical order using your banners to help you. Write a list each time.

Maths: This week we are looking at ‘capacity’, and that some containers have a greater capacity than others. Often ‘taller’ containers look like they will hold more, but this is not necessarily the case. There is a well explained session from nrich maths… don’t worry too much about needing food colouring!

https://nrich.maths.org/12491 

RE: I am sure you have enjoyed sharing lots of stories with your families; there is nothing better than snuggling up with a good book. You may remember that sometimes Rev. Jan brings her special pink book into school. This is a Bible, a book that tells us about God and Jesus. There are many stories in the New Testament that tell us about just how special Jesus was. One of these is when Jesus and his friends are in boat when a storm appears. His friends were very frightened, but Jesus was so special he could tell the storm to go away. Can you draw a picture of the boat in the storm and another picture of the calm waters and sky? (If you have a Bible at home, you can find this story in:  Luke ch 8 v 22-26.)

The Alphabet:

Try doing an alphabet treasure hunt. See if you can find one object for each sound in your house or garden (you may need to use pictures for some of the trickier ones!). Keep hold of your collection, so that you can use them for a literacy activity.

Make a decorated sign for your bedroom using capital letters.

Sing the alphabet song… and teach it to your family.

Phonics: This week, the tricky word is ‘like’. Can you write several sentences starting with ‘I like to…’ ?

Again, using phoneme frames with 4 spaces, practise the sound ‘oa’ with words with 2 consonants at the beginning or at the end…

boast/ cloak/float/roast/ croak/toast/coach/bloat/throat

 

b

oa

s

t

 

 

 

WB 04.05.20

Hello Everyone!

Another week has passed, hopefully you are all staying well and happy.

I hope you enjoyed finding out more about your houses last week. I am looking forward to seeing your work and hearing all about your homes. Seeing and hearing? Aha! Our senses! Let’s use the coming week to find out more about our 5 senses. We use our senses to find out about the world in which we live, through seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and touching.

Here are some activities for you to try… and if you can think of any others, please explore your own ideas too. Take care, and as ever, keep smiling! Hope to see you soon.

Love from Mrs Highton 

Literacy: Make a booklet about your 5 senses. You could draw your eyes and colour them in. Then you could write and finish this sentence ‘I like to see….’ On the next page, draw an ear and finish this sentence ‘I like to hear…’ Complete for all the senses.
Maths: We are going to count in 10s and 5s this week, and then practise using 10p and 5p coins if you have any. Have a quick look at your hands to remind yourself how many fingers you have. You will need to borrow fingers from your family…. Counting in 10s, how many fingers are in your house altogether? Now try the same with 5s. Make collections of any objects, either in groups of 10 or 5, and count. You can use 10p and 5p coins as well. Perhaps you could make a toy shop, and use these coins to buy a selection of goods?
RE: At the moment we are not able to touch some of the people we love, such as our grandparents (although you are probably able to see them on your tablets etc, which is lovely.) Draw around both your hands and cut out. Join your hands together at the ‘wrist’. On each fingertip write the names of the people you are praying for just now.

Senses: There are lots of great experiments you can do to help you learn more about your senses.

Taste: It is your tongue that lets you know the different taste of foods. If you have these foods, try to describe how they taste… lemon/salt/sugar/dark chocolate. Think about these words and try to match them to the foods; sweet, salty, sour, bitter.

Smell: Perhaps your parents can find some strong smelling things in your house, and without looking, can you smell them and say what they are? (eg bubble bath/coffee/onion/curry powder etc)

Touch: Make a collection of objects with different textures. Do they feel rough? hard? smooth? soft?

There are some listening activities on this website

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/eyfs-listening-skills-sound-games-1/zm72kmn

And of course, you can have endless games of I-spy!

Phonics: This week, the tricky word is ‘have’. You can tie this in with our topic by writing these sentences... I have seen a.../I have heard a....etc.

Using phoneme frames with 4 spaces, practised the sound 'igh' with words with 2 consonants at the beginning....flight/bright/plight/slight/fright

f l igh t

 

 

 WB 27.04.20

Hello Everyone!

The weather has certainly been kind, and the sunshine has meant that the bees have been busy. I hope you managed to spot a few, and that you enjoyed some of the activities suggested.

As we are all spending so much time in our homes, I thought that 'Houses' would be an ideal topic this week. Here are some ideas for you to try, although if you come up with other activities, I would love to see your work when we see each other again.

 Literacy: Can you make an 'estate agents' brochure about your house? You could begin with the front cover, with a drawing of the front or back of your house, and your address written underneath. Write the title 'For Sale' in large colourful letters. Now you can add more pages to your booklet, you can do as many as you want to, describing some of the rooms in your house.

RE/Literacy: Our homes are 'special places' where we feel safe. You could draw the outline of a house, showing the rooms. You could write out or finish these sentences in each room.

I like to be in my kitchen because..../ I like to be in my bedroom because..../I like to be in my sitting room because.... etc.

Maths: Play 'The House that Jack Built'. Ask an adult to draw the outline of a house with a roof, 2 chimneys, a door, a patio window, 3 other smaller windows and some flowers.

Red tops might want to play with one dice. If you throw 6, colour in the roof. 5 = chimneys, 4 = patio doors, 3 = windows, 2 = door & 1 = flowers. Maybe you could have several houses and play this game with your family.

Blue tops. Time to practise some subtraction! Use 2 dice (or roll one twice). Create a subtraction problem with the 2 numbers, always making sure you use the highest number first. If the answer is 0, colour the roof. 1 = door, 2 = chimney, 3 = windows, 4 = flowers and 5 = patio doors.

Dice are a great way to generate addition problems too.

 What is your house made from? Have a good look at the outside of your house. Can you see any of these materials? Brick, wood, glass, plastic, metal, stone, mortar. Draw a diagram and label the different materials.

Look at the brick pattern on your house. If you have lego or duplo, try to recreate a wall with the same pattern. Or you could use a duplo brick or any rectangle to print this pattern with paint.

 Phonics: The new tricky word this week is 'said'. Perhaps you could practise writing a sentence using tricky words from your list, and adding 'said granny' etc at the end.

We can change these cvc words into new words by adding a consonant at the beginning. Can you work out which sound to add? (Some may have a couple of possibilities.)

For example: pot becomes spot.

Try these... rip / rack / top / peck / pin / ran / lap / lad / win.

 I hope you enjoy trying some of these ideas...

 Let's hope we will be able to return to school as soon as possible, but in the meantime, keep safe, and enjoy learning about your home.

Lots of love from Mrs Highton.
