Welcome to Year 1

Continuous learning

From this week we are moving to Continous Learning at home using the Seesaw Class App. A video guide to this can be found here. You will still get notifications via the Seesaw Family App, however, children will need the Seesaw Class App to upload work and follow teacher instructions. Please email your child’s class teacher with any queries. Children will get two ‘responsibility’ tasks each day (one from the class teacher and one from a specialist teacher each day) and a morning welcome video posted to their journal. At the beginning of the week, we will post a list of ‘possibilities’ – additional tasks and activities that children can choose to complete when or if they have time. Finally, we will continue to expect children to read for 15-20 minutes (or more!) each day. In addition to physical books from the TBS library, you can find links to ebooks on the Continous Learning page of our year group website. In particular, the Oxford Owl link gives free access to Book Band books (sign up required; video guide here).

Continuous Home Learning

The Big Read PDF versions of worksheets: The Magic Finger, The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark, The Three Little Wolves And The Big Bad Pig, Dinosaur Trouble. When you complete them, post a photo of the sheet to Seesaw (in the ‘Reading’ folder).

You can find details for spelling and phonics patterns taught in Year 1 here.
