Welcome to Class 3!
If you have any concerns over the closure and need to contact your class teacher, please e-mail
A message from you new teacher - Mrs Murphy
Hi Class 3,
Firstly, can I say what absolute superstars you all are! You are working so hard at home and I have heard and seen some lovely pictures about your home learning through making dens, using pebbles and daisies to practise your maths and most importantly your creativity in making your learning fun!
I am so proud to be your teacher whilst Miss Parkinson is at home looking after baby Arlo. I have set a very creative new learning menu for you which is based around our topic of animals in Kenya! I’m excited to read about what weird and crazy animals you create with your wonderful imaginations!! Remember to show off your wonderful learning!
I will continue to put work on Purple Mash every week, so have a go and try your best. If you feel like a change, there are some wonderful resources on ‘BBC Bitesize’ within their daily lessons and also on ‘Oak National Academy’. Click on classroom, schedule and then year 1. These both contain videos for you to watch first and then activities and quizzes for you to complete. Please let me know how you find them – you’re feedback is so important to me in order to keep our learning as engaging and enjoyable as possible.
As a mum myself, I am all too aware of the pressures that lockdown can bring, so please Blog or email me at any time (email@example.com) and I will do my best to help. The learning menu isn’t set in stone – every child learns in different ways and it might just be a case of tweaking some activities.
I truly can’t wait to see all of your happy, smiley faces and hope that you are all staying safe and well. Keep singing away every day!!
Talk for Writing Units of Work
At school, we begin learning to write in Reception/EYFS and use a teaching method called 'Talk for writing' until a child's final year in year 6.
I have attached three new story units below that you may like to use to support your childs oral retelling of stories
The Year 1 units are called:
Pipperty Skycap: A tale of Mischeif
Sydney Spider - A tale of Friendship
Syeeda - The Pirate Princess
It would be lovely if you could read these stories to your child and ask them the questions along the way. I am sure Mrs Murphy would love to see some video clips or photographs of the children in class 3 completing some of these wonderful stories and activities.
A huge thank you for all that you are doing to support your child's home learning
Year 1 Mathematics
Here is a parent friendly guide for the Mathematics skills which are taught in Year 1. We are hoping you will find this useful to support any additional Maths work you are doing with your child during the school closure.
