Please make sure you have downloaded Teams, as we will be checking in with everyone weekly, so look out for your invite. The first check in will be on Wednesday 13th January at 9:15 am. You can use this time to ask any questions you may have, or just to catch up and share your news with us. In the mean time if you have any questions or concerns please do get in touch.

You can contact me with any questions or to share pictures of the children’s work at: Galilieo@southbankprimary.co.uk

Home Learning

Below you will find a suggested timetable of learning activities that you can do with your child at home. This reflects the timetable we have in school, to help provide routine and consistency. Please do not worry if you do not follow this exactly. I understand that learning at home is very different to being in school, you can adapt this timetable to suit the needs of you and your child. Try to make time in your day to play, relax and enjoy each others company.

Children will be given a set of number cards from 1-20. You could support your child at home:

  • to put the number cards in the correct order,

Children can also practice their number formation:

Mental Arithmetic

Mental arithmetic is of great importance, with a particular emphasis in Year 1 on counting up to 100 in different ways, both forwards and backwards. Please help your child by counting as part of your daily routines – in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. Other home learning activities that you can help your child with are those that form part of day-to-day activities, e.g. counting coins and using money, telling the time, measuring using different equipment, spotting patterns and shapes around them, and so on.

You can access additional learning activities at: topmarks.co.uk

Children also enjoy watching these videos to help them with their counting and they keep them active too!

Number Bonds to 10

PE

New classes with Joe Wicks begin on Monday 11th January at 9am on Wicks’ YouTube channel.

Science

In Year 1 the children conducted a ‘mouldy bread’ science experiment. The aim of this experiment was to provide the children with a powerful reminder of the importance of washing their hands. The experiment used two slices of bread to illustrate the accumulation of germs. One slice was left untouched while the other was touched by the children. They touched the bread after they had washed their hands with soap and water, so they thought they were clean! The children then predicted which slice of bread would go mouldy first.

The children’s predictions were correct!
