Daily Challenges: 

Please try to complete some of the following challenges every day:

  • Read a book. This could be your reading book from school or a favourite book from your own collection. Reading books have also been set via the Rising Stars website. Please see the blog post on the Year 1 page for more details.
  • Handwriting – Please practise your letter formation every day. In Year 1 we should be able to form most letters correctly by the end of the year. Ask an adult to help you to ensure that you are following our handwriting policy. See the handwriting families attached to your pack.
  • Phonics – Use your phonics mats when sounding out new words. Ask your adult to give you a sound a day. Write as many words as you can that contain that sound or search through your books to find words with that sound in.
  • Exercise – Exercise is so important for our well being, concentration and fitness. It is especially important during this challenging time. Try to get out in your garden for a run around and some physical exercise for at least 30 minutes per day. Alternatively there are lots of online PE sessions on You Tube. You could try a yoga session or a Joe Wicks PE session which will be live each day.

Remember…We are never far away. Please stay in touch. I will be thinking of you all and look forward to reuniting soon. Please stay healthy – wash your hands regularly and catch all of those coughs and sneezes.

Enjoy your home learning – 2020 really will be a year you will never forget. Work hard and always try your best.

See you all soon!
