Hi everyone, it was great to see you all yesterday and to share our stories for world book day. I am really looking forward to seeing you all on Monday back in Beech Class. Miss Threlfall and I have really missed you all and we are so excited that we will all be reunited. Have a look at my welcome back blog to see what will happen when we are back.

Don’t worry if you are nervous about coming back, I think we will all be a little nervous but we will have lots of fun and see our friends when we are back!

Here is today’s work:

ENGLISH

Re-watch the story Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman:

Then watch this:

MATHS

Start by recapping some measuring from last week using this game:

Then have a go at recapping some take away or subtraction.

Either practice subtraction to 10:

or have a go at this and select subtraction and then a level that is best for your child:

Then have a go at completing one of these mats to recap our learning:

Year 1 Spring 1 Activity Mat 1

If you would like an extra challenge, have a go at this to recap tens and ones:

Select option – Show the amount and tens and ones.

PHONICS

Have a go at this for today’s phonics:

STILLING TIME

Next week, we are coming back to school. Are you feeling worried about coming back? If so, what worries you? Talk to your adult about your worried and share them with me via email if you want me to know.

It is perfectly normal to feel worried about things. I even feel a little worried about returning to school as we have not been together as a class for a while. I know that as soon as we are in and together I will feel so much better!

RE

Today we are moving onto our next RE unit on Easter.

Read the Easter Story from this web site

OR from a Bible if you have one at home

OR watch this film

Think carefully…

I wonder what you think are the most important parts of the Easter story?

The crosses in the picture are picture crosses from San Salvador in Central America.

Create your own cross in this style using pictures from the Easter Story.

Think about what images you could include. Here are some ideas for inspiration:

I hope you all have a great weekend and I will be on the playground excited to see you and ready to greet you on Monday morning! Mrs Quinn x
