Belton (Yr 1)
Welcome to Belton Class!
Welcome back to Term 5! We have recently embarked on new times of learning during the period of the Coronavirus and we have to say that we have been so very impressed with the children's response to distance learning. Over the Easter break we have been preparing learning 'at home resources' for Term 5, which can then be adapted for school use should we return sooner. All activities will be uploaded to 'SeeSaw' and this will include an overview of the activities across the week. You can choose to do them when you want - all we ask is that you complete tasks for each subject in the order to help make sense of them. We will be keeping all parents and carers of Belton Class children up to date with additions, general information and other exciting ideas via Class Dojo so do try and check in there on a daily basis too. We’re looking forward to seeing all that you are able to get up to and hope you all stay positive and healthy during what some may find a difficult time. We also look forward to seeing you all in person again very soon - but in the meantime, look out for our video posts (so you don't forget what we look like).
If you have any problems at all, please get in touch:
email@example.com (Monday-Wednesday am) or via Dojo
firstname.lastname@example.org (Wednesday pm-Friday) or via Dojo.
Traditional Tales is the theme for this terms learning. We will be using stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood to mention a few.
In Literacy we will be writing letters of apology to the three bears, speech bubbles, making puppets, retelling a version of a traditional tale and writing a description of the wolf to help the police locate him!
We will continue to develop our cursive letter formation and begin to look at some simple joins.
To aid our reading and writing we will continue to finish off recapping phase 5a and move onto 5b. We will also focus on making sure we can spell all our common exception words alongside Phase five’s tricky and high frequency words.
In science we will be looking at plants; what is a plant, how do they grow, what are the parts of a plant? We will learn to recognise wild and garden plants alongside different types of trees.
Investigating Judaism is the theme for RE this term, exploring the family and comparing the Jewish family to our own.
We very much look forward to seeing you in action via Seesaw and hope it will not be long until we meet together again as Team Belton!
Many thanks Belton Class Team
