Thank you to all the children that managed to get on to our Zoom meeting this morning it was lovely to see all your faces. I miss you so much.
I am in Waddington next week but the week commencing the 13th of April I will arrange another Zoom meeting. This one will be a little more formal and so have paper and pens at the ready.
If any of you would like to write me a letter and pop it in the post I will write back to every letter I receive. Please send to Waddington and West Bradford CE Primary School
West Bradford Road
I have added some Year 1 comprehension tasks they are all dinosaur linked so I am sure you will enjoy.
I would like you to write a story called the Dinosaur egg.
If you watch the you tube clip called 'Dinosaur the egg travels' then your story starter can be that you find an egg. It could be in your back garden, your village or on the river bank. Imagine the possiblities of what could happen when the egg hatches !
I have added some resources that you might find useful when planning your story.
Keep in touch
Miss you all
Maths work for week 2
Click on your year group
This is a fabulous interactive resource it gives you lots of information.
You can print off the slides you want to do then work through them at your own pace.
Welcome to Year 1 - 2!
Hope your all okay. I am sure you have all been working hard with the tasks in your home learning packs. I have really enjoyed all the photos and your e mails so thank you for sending them to me.
As our current topic is dinosaurs I thought it might be fun to find out as many facts as we can about out favourite dino. So this week if you research a dinosaur of your choice and make a fact file that would be amazing. There are so many fantastic books on dinosaurs on the accelerated reading link. You can also look on the internet for facts.
Have fun fact finding.
I am also available to chat to on Zoom Wednesday 1st of April 2020 at 10am.
Look forward to catching up with you all.
Keep in touch missing you all
The children are taught in a mixed age class. In Key Stage 1; Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are taught together for some lessons. The Reception children work in their own year group during Maths and Literacy lessons and the Year 1 and Year 2 children are taught together. This can be a very positive experience and mixed age classes have many benefits. It gives the teacher the opportunity to meet individual needs regardless of their year group. There is class stability and continuity making transition in year groups easier.
Our chosen themed topic runs through the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. We endeavour to make our classroom interesting and motivating, utilising the indoor and outdoor environment. We embrace learning outside the classroom and plan outdoor learning into many of our lessons.
SCIENCE NOVEMBER 2019
We have been learning all about owls in literacy, so today in science we dissected owl pellets. Our owl pellets were from barn owls. After examining them under magnifying glasses, we carefully pulled them apart. Inside them we found remains of fur and plenty of small bones. We quickly learnt how to identify jaw bones and skulls.
Science October 2019
Today in science KS1 were joined by preschool and reception. They shared their ideas about why so many wild and wonderful animals have special patterns on them. After wrapping up warm, we took our science lesson outside. The children a range of cardboard animals that they needed to hide around the school grounds. They decided that the best way to do this was to camouflage them and thought carefully about the colours they should use.
