Welcome to the Year 1 Emperor Penguins Class.
On this page you will find the following information:
1. Curriculum for the year.
2. End of year objectives (what the children should know by the end of the year).
3. Work expectations.
4. Blended learning (work for your child if they are absent or the class/school has been closed due to coronavirus).
Part 1: Curriculum for the year ahead.
Part 2: End of year objectives (what children should know by the end of Year 1).
Part 3: Work Expectations.
By the end of Year 1, children's letters are expected to be formed accurately (see letter formation rhymes in phonics section) and writing should be legible, consistently sized and sat on the line. Children are not expected to join their writing in Year 1, however as we move through the year, staff will begin to teach pre-cursive and cursive writing to those who are ready to progress.
Part 4: Blended Learning
If your child is absent but waiting for a coronavirus test result to return to school or having to self isolate due to symptomatic household members, then they can access school work on their class page right here! Work will be uploaded every Monday morning. Children are expected to follow the timetable and complete the lessons in their Meadlands-at-Home books, returning these to their class teacher, once they are able to return to school.
If the class or school is having to isolate we will be in touch with you regarding how to access the Google Classroom learning.
For more information, please refer to our Blended Learning Policy.
Parents & carers, if your child is isolating and completing work from home, the following websites can supplement the work we have provided. These are easy to access and navigate and you will find video lessons and video clips which support the learning that the teachers have provided:
Oak National Academy provides video lessons for reception up to Year 6 https://www.thenational.academy/
BBC Bitesize provides primary resources for children https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize
Blended Learning March 2020 - July 2020
Parents and Carers of children in Year 1. Miss Bunker will update this page every morning by 9am with instructions for the day of learning. Please make sure you read her letter and complete the work. If you have any questions please email Miss Bunker and she will do her best to reply to you.
