CLASS 1 Tuesday 2nd June

RHebblewhite - 31 May 2020

Tuesday 2nd June

Good Morning Class One! I hope you have had a great start to the week!

Mums and Dads, if this is your 'first day back'...

This term I will also be responsible for the class webpage for Nursery and Reception at Grewelthorpe and their home-learning. I will continue read all of your EvidenceMe uploads, but unfortunately I will not be able to repsond to all of them. I am keen to continue to showcase the children's work on the page and in our weekly Wonderful Work powerpoint, so please feel free to send in pieces of work that your child has been especially proud of, or even a photo or video clip of a fun activity that your child would like to share with their friends!

Please feel free to contact me at with any queries regarding the children's home learning.
I hope you all have a fantastic 'first week back' Mrs H xx

Some of you will be back at school today for the first time today.
I hope you all have a lovely day! I am sorry that I can't be there with you,
but I will be sending you some video messages later this week on our class page!

School is going to be a bit different now,
but I know that we will still have lots of fun.
Here is a story about Hedgehog and Tortoise.
School is different for them now too, but they are still best friends!

Why don't you send you kiss across the room to your friend?!
See if they can catch it! 

Do you remember our days of the week song today? Why don't you join in?

Do you remember our 'Milkshake' song? 
I thought you might enjoy listening to it and joining in with it again! I did!
It would be great to see some of your singing in our Wonderful Work powerpoint! Image result for milkshake cartoon images

I have found a some fun yoga exercises for us to join in with this week. Yoga is very good for keeping fit and healthy.

Can you remember our 'ur' sound? It's our Sound of the Week! Let's watch the Alphablocks to practise! Join in and robot-talk the words! There is more than one way to write the 'ur' sound, but this week, we will just be concentrating on 'u-r' words.
Perhaps you would like to play a game on your tablet/ipad to practise your 'ur' sound?

On the Phonics Play website play 'Obb and Bob' to practise our 'ur' sound, which is a 'Phase 3' sound. Bob likes to eat real words and Obb likes to eat fake words! The username is 'march20' and password, 'home'. Here are some instructions:

First, make sure you select 'go to new website', when prompted.
Click on: Obb and Bob
Click on: Phase 3
Select: set 1-7+ur. 

You could also go back and practise set 1-7, plus any previous digraphs from the children's soundbook, that you feel they need to consolidate.


Can you remember our numbers and numerals to 20? Join in with this powerpoint, to practise counting up to 20 and back from 20. Ask your grown-up to pause the video on different numbers, so that you can practise adding and taking away one  from each number.  

Perhaps today you could play hidden numbers, to practise finding the missing part of a 'number sentence'. You will need a tea towel and five lego bricks/toys.
Grown-ups - count the 5 bricks together and then hide them under the cloth. Show how many you are taking away and ask your child to use their fingers to work out how many will still be hiding under the cloth. This is a tricky concept, so you may want to start with 3 or 4 bricks initially.


This week's project

This week's topic is about Sports and keeping fit.
That football pitch is looking amazing! Would you like to make one?

Our project is also about our bodies and keeping fit.
Look! Max and his Mummy have been labelling the human body!
Perhaps you could make your own?

 If you have some chalk or are lucky enough to have some lining paper, you could ask your grown-up to trace your shadow or outline. Use your phonic knowledge to label your body. Can you find out where our brain, heart, lungs, stomach are and learn about their jobs?

You might enjoy learning about your 'senses'.
Here are some fun activities for you to try at home!

The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about sports and games. Learning may focus on the history of sport, sporting-heroes, physical challenges and performance.
Play Skittles
● If you have a set of skittles, you’re ready to go, if not you can make your own skittles using plastic bottles. Take a plastic bottle and partly fill with soil/ stones or sand to weigh it down. If you don’t have plastic bottles available you could use tin cans for an alternative version. Ask your child to count how many skittles there are to begin with. Roll the ball at the skittles and ask your child to count how many they have knocked over. Can they work out how many are left? CHALLENGE: You could write this out as a subtraction number sentence e.g. if you start with 5 skittles and knock over 2 your child would write 5 - 2. Ask them to count how many are left to find the answer 5 - 2 = 3

Competition Time
● Have a time challenge. Give your child an action to do e.g. hop, skip, jump, clap or star jump. how many can they do in one minute. Keep a record of the scores. Ask everyone in the house to have a go! 
Parts of the Human Body
● Ask your child which parts of their body they use to run? To do a handstand? Draw the parts of the body and for a challenge ask them to label them using their phonics knowledge. 
Create your own Junk Modelled Football Pitch
● Using a lid of a shoe box or similar container, help your child to cut out two holes on each end as the goals. If you have green card or paper, stick this in the base, if not you can colour in plain paper using a crayon. Draw out the marking on the pitch using crayons or felt tips. When finished, stand your football pitch on a box on the table. Using something ball-like (e.g. a sweet), take turns aiming at your partner’s goal whilst the other tries to save the goal. If you score you get to eat the sweet! CHALLENGE: Write instructions to play your game e.g. 1. Put the ball in. 2. Flick at the goal. 3. Eat the sweet! 

Have fun Class One and remember to look after yourselves and each other!
Love from Mrs Hebblewhite, Fred the Ted, Boris and Croccy! xxx
