Bumblebees and Caterpillars

We appreciate any work you do with the children at home whilst the schools are closed. As we don't know how long they will be closed for it is really important for all your children to keep up with their learning as much as possible. 
The guidelines below are suggestions for how much time could be spent on each area of learning.


ClassDojo
Look out for weekly activities and learning set by the Year 1 teachers!
Reading - 15 minutes a day, including questioning the children about what they have read to develop their understanding.

If your child is reading books that are book banded (coloured stickers)
pink/red/yellow/blue/green/orange, they will be allocated books through their Phonic Bug log-in. 
If your child is reading a book that is banded turquoise/purple/gold/white/lime they can access free ebooks for their book band through this link to Oxford Owl.
Spellings/phonic games
Daily activities, following the schedule provided on ClassDojo and practising the sounds through online games and activities set for you on Phonic Bug.
Maths
The White Rose website that schools use to support their planning are offering free tutorials and resources that you can access from home. Just click on the home learning tab at the top of the page and select Year 1.

This is brilliant for doubles, halves, number bonds and mental Maths skills. 
The children need to know their number bonds to 10 and 20 by heart.
They need to know how to count in 2's, 5's and 10's. 

Mental Maths Train 
This will help with children's addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills.
