Good morning Year 1,

Can you believe it is Friday already? This week has passed very quickly. It has been wonderful to teach you again. All children settled very well in their bubbles and they were learning beautifully in their new classrooms. We have all worked very hard.

As we were very productive at school ideally I would like you to take a rest today as a reward for your hard work. However, if you still fancy some learning, please practise the family of 'igh' sound - sheets enclosed below. Additionally, please do some reading on Rising Stars and activities on Sumdog.

Then, in the afternoon, have a lot fun!

I am going to answer to all my emails after the staff meeting this morning and upload activities on the website for next week later today.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Mrs Saganowska

Dear Children,

 

It was great to see you all at school today! I missed you a lot. I know that everyone was a little bit apprehensive at first, not knowing what to expect in our new classrooms and even meeting new teachers. Well, well, you have done very well! You were very brave! I am so proud of you. I enjoyed every minute of teaching you today and Mrs Dargie and Mrs Wiltshire said that you are absolutely brilliant! 

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

 

For those who are continuing home learning, I wonder how are you doing? At school we were talking about Superheroes. If you follow the Hamilton learning packs, you can design your Superhero too. In class, many children drew their parents as Superheroes. Undoubtedly, they have been Superheroes recently!

I am at school every day now but I am still reading my emails, so please write to me and continue sending me your work. I can show it to the class so everyone will see what you have been up to.

I will endeavour to respond in the afternoons.

Stay safe

Welcome to Term 6!

I hope you have enjoyed your half term and this wonderful weather! This week is going to be very sunny too. I literally can't wait to see you on Tuesday. Some of you will be coming to school and some of you will be continuing to learn at home. However, we will all be doing the same learning: reading, phonics, maths, science and foundation subjects and using activities assigned on the website.

In Maths we are going to learn about mass, capacity and volume. We are preparing a few practical activities for you to do at school. At home, please use measuring jars to investigate capacity and volume and maybe if you have a scale to investigate which objects are heavier or lighter.

In English,  we are going to work with 'Superheroes' theme and learning about past tense, opposites and even writing a comic strip.

At home, if you prefer stand alone writing tasks, please refer to 'Additional writing tasks' in English writing folder.

I have also assigned another books for you to read on Rising starts.

Please continue to use Diagnostic Questions for Maths quizzes and Sumdog for grammar and spellings. A new work has been assigned there too.

In Phonics I would like you to practise the family of 'igh' sounds: 'ie', 'i', 'y' and the split diagraph 'i_e' like knight, pie, wild, try or kite.

In Science we will learn about Seasons and observe the weather. Finally, in Art we are going to learn about creative Italian artist Giuseppe Acrimboldo who was famous for painting portraits and connecting his art to fruits or flowers that grew in particular Seasons.

I hope you will enjoy all activities assigned for this week. Enjoy your learning!

I look forward to receiving pictures of your amazing work.

Have a good week!

Good morning Year 1, Happy Friday!

 

This is the last day of home learning before half term! How exciting!

I would like to say a big thank you and well done to all the children and the parents for your hard work, support and commitment since the end of March. 

It has been wonderful to receive your emails.

Dear Children, it has been very difficult not being able to spent time with you at school and teach you on daily basis. However, I have to admit that you have been amazing! I really appreciate your hard work! 

If you have not had a chance to participate in the world's largest drawing challenge yesterday, you can still access the link. I loved the dolphin with the rainbow Rob drew in his lesson! You can try different lessons too. Please access the link below.

 

Dear Parents, please do email me if you require further clarification or have any questions in relations to the letters that will be sent to you today about the process of returning to school potentially from 1st June 2020.

Enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend. I hope you all have a brilliant half term holiday.

Stay safe.

Mrs Saganowska and the Year 1 team

Good afternoon Year 1,

 

How are you today? I wonder how are you getting on with your learning? Have you done any painting this week?
This week is a perfect weather to play with your shadows as the sun shines so brightly. Have you managed to answer the scientific questions in your science task? I look forward seeing your shadow drawings.

 

Enjoy your day!

Good afternoon Year 1,

 

I hope you enjoyed your day today! It was so hot! I am sorry for not writing you a message this morning but I went to school today and it was a very busy day. I challenged myself to cycle to school and back home, total 18 km. It was exhausting in this hot weather but I did it!

I thought you may like to join the world’s largest ever art lesson tomorrow in the afternoon. Follow the link below. If you draw something you must take a picture of it and send it to me as I am very interested how your drawings will look like.

Challenge yourself!

Good morning wonderful class and all grown ups!

 

How are you the morning? I hope you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday. Apparently, today it will be even warmer so make sure you spent some time outside, ether playing in the garden, going for a walk or riding your bike. Make the most of it!

This week is a Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is KINDNESS. Please look at our 'Additional learning' folder. There, you will find various activities you can do this week. Also, watch the clip below and ensure that you are extremely kind to others and most importantly to yourself. Do something what you really, really enjoy! Have fun! In breaks of teaching, learning and responding to your wonderful emails, I am practising my tennis table skills - outdoor in my garden. It is a great fun! 

Look after yourself as much as possible. How many acts of kindness can you practise this week?

 

Enjoy your learning!

 Be kind and spread kindness to others!

In Maths we are going to compare length and height, measure length and learning about weight and mass.

In English, you are going to follow Sayeeda the pirate princess and practise using capital letters and full stops, exploring various new words, attempt to write a diary entry and even make a treasure map!

Good morning Year 1,

 

I am sorry for not writing anything on the website yesterday. I was busy at school and then came home to do homeschooling with my daughter. At school, we had a long meeting, studying the government quidance and discussing how we can potentially welcome you to school from 1st June and facilitate school learning safely. The work is in progress and everything will be communicated to the parents soon.

 

The weather is so nice today, hopefully it will stay like that for the weekend. We can now go to the parks and do more then one exercise per day which is great. I am thinking about playing tennis with my daughter on Saturday or Sunday. Hopefully, we will have a lot of fun!

I am going to work on your next Home learning tasks for next week so this evening and tomorrow morning, there will be new resources and activities on the website for you.

I am very grateful to everyone who sent me pictures of your learning so far. I am going to put them on the website today. I look forward to receiving more. I have not heard from some of you this week, so I would really like to receive a short message with a picture of one piece of work you have done or you are proud of.

 

Stay safe

Have a good Friday and a good weekend!

Mrs Saganowska

Dear Year 1 Children and Parents,

 

I would like to say a big THANKS to YOU for making such a brilliant video! I have watched it many times and I couldn’t stop looking at your smiley faces. You all look so cheerful and happy.  
You are a wonderful class and (Ms Alfredson and Mrs Mills and I) miss you a lot. 
All the teachers like the video clip too. 
We simply can’t wait to see you again at school.
Thank you for keeping in touch and sending to me short messages and photographs of your amazing work.
Thank you to all parents for working so hard and supporting your children during this time.

As the weather became slightly better, I hope you are going for walks and exercising too. It is so important to keep fit and healthy.

 I am planning to go for a run and a long walk today. I hope I will explore secret footpaths leading to a meadow or a forest. 
I hope you will have a wonderful day.

Keep smiling!

Mrs Saganowska
 

Tuesday 12th May 2020

 

Good morning Year 1,

 

How are you this morning? I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday. Have you seen the new video from the teachers? Did you like it?

 

Yesterday, the weather wasn’t great, it was very windy, so I stayed indoors almost all day. In my breaks from work, I did yoga (Cosmic Yoga - The Wizard of Oz) and in the afternoon I did some painting. My work was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh and I painted ‘The Starry Night’. Have you started your Art already? In the Art folder you will find a lot of information about Vincent Van Gogh. 
I can’t wait to see your paintings. 

Surprise me.

Have a good day Year 1.

We miss you a lot.

Enjoy your home learning too!

Mrs Saganowska

In Maths we are going to practise adding, subtracting and compare number sentences.

In English, you are invited to read the tale of mischief with Pippety Skycap and complete activities involving listening, explaining and of course writing. Last week, I prepared a selection of writing activities. If you wish, this week you can still use this list and select different writing activities that you like.

Remember, you do not need to do everything!

I have also assigned another books for you to read on Rising starts.

Please continue to use Diagnostic Questions for Maths quizzes and Sumdog for grammar and spellings. A new work has been assigned there too.

Good morning Year 1,

 

How are you this morning? Did you have a good day yesterday? 

Today is a bank holiday so we wouldn’t have gone into school. I hope you liked the VE day activities down below. We made bunting yesterday and it is now hanging on the school gate. It was a great fun. 
Ms Alfredson and I were a little bit silly yesterday as you can see on the video below. We hope it made you smile.

So, enjoy the sunshine, have an amazing bank holiday weekend, be kind to your family and have lots of fun!

 

Stay Safe

Good morning everyone,

 

How are you this morning? Have you done PE with Joe or maybe other types of exercises? I did cycling today, well not finished yet, as I cycled to school and I will cycle back home in the afternoon. If you sent me an email, I am respond in the afternoon as we are busy here at school now. Ms Alfredson and I are preparing something for you. So check the website later on:) Hopefully, it will make you smile.

In the meantime, as we can't celebrate VE Day at school together, I have researched a few activities for you to do. If you wish you can read about what is VE Day and why it is celebrated in Britain. You can also do some amazing craft and decorate your house with specially designed bunting.

You can download all activities below.

Good morning Year 1,

 

I hope you are all okay. I am certainly enjoying the weather today. I am sitting in my kitchen, working and at the same time thinking of you too. I have received a lot of amazing pictures of your work and even few recipes for yummy cakes. I will definitely try them. I look forward to receiving more of them. I am glad some of you really enjoyed hunting for various leaves and learning to recognising the trees. Today is a perfect weather to go for a walk and complete this activity. I wonder how many birch trees have you found. The birch tree is my favourite tree:) Do you know that there are 11 varieties of birch trees?

I wish you have a quiet Wednesday. Enjoy the wether and make sure you have a lot of fun too!

Mrs Saganowska

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! 5th May 2020

 

Good morning everybody! How are you? I hope you had a good start of the week.

I just came back from my morning run. I am feeling refreshed and full of energy for work.

I was very busy yesterday, updating the website, answering emails and looking at your amazing work. You are doing so well with learning at home. Sometimes, I find very tricky to concentrate at home with a lot of background noise. It is a challenge.

This week I wish to bake something in the afternoon. If you have decided to do one of the English activities involving writing instructions, why won't you write an instruction for me how to bake a yummy cake? I can try it at home and post you some pictures of my hopefully amazing baking.

I look forward receiving your work.

Enjoy the sunshine. Keep smiling and stay safe!

Happy Friday Year 1,

 

I hope you all had a chance to have a look at the video the school made. I hope you like it. We simply wanted to say that we really miss you. The school is not the same without you.

I wonder what did you manage to do yesterday. The weather hasn't been great in the afternoon, there were showers and it was quite chilly.

I have almost completed preparing activities for you for next week. I will upload the activities later today so they will be ready for Monday.

Remember, it is Friday today. Normally, we would have had a Golden Time in the afternoon, so make sure you have a time for play and make something creative. Try colouring, maybe building something out of recycling or using lego blocks. Who can construct the biggest tower? Maybe someone can make a bridge? What if you create a shop and pretend that you are selling sweats? When I was a little girl, I loved playing imaginative games. I always played with cars, and created roads and pretended that people are going on the busses. They always had to buy tickets though, so I practised counting money. It was a great fun! Send me some pictures of your games.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Saganowska

Thursday 30th April 2020

 

Good morning Year 1.

How are you? I hope you are still motivated to learn despite the rainy weather. I am planning to go for a walk. I will simply put my wellies and a raincoat and enjoy the showers and maybe splashing in the puddles too.

My ginger cat enjoys the rainy weather. He loves to stay outside and he always comes home completely soaked and asking for treats. He likes them a lot.

I am loving receiving your emails and seeing your creative work. Every time, I look at them, they make me smile.

Keep persevering and working hard even if it is difficult.

I still keep track of your work and use Dojos to reward you. So, the number of your Dojos is growing all the time.

Have you tried making the science investigations? Have a look at some of the pictures below of your friends work. I can see a lovely, bright rainbow. Can you spot it too?

Have a good day

Good morning everyone,

 

I hope you are enjoying the sunshine this morning. Make the most of the weather and do some exercises outdoor to keep yourself fit and healthy.

I am so proud of you all. You are doing an amazing home learning. I am working hard at home too, already planning interesting activities for you for next week.

In your breaks from learning, try to be creative and make some art and craft. I made a wind chime the another day. Below, you can find a link to the website with fantastic ideas for outdoor craft, using natural resources. Use your creativity and have fun!

Enjoy your day

Mrs Saganowska

Tuesday 28th April 2020

Good morning Year 1,

 

No more sun today, I can see a lot of clouds and rain through my window. At least, my plants will get some water. My sunflowers grow nicely. I hope your plants too.

I also hope you had a chance to watch the photos and videos of the chicks hatching. They are so cute!

Thank you for all the pictures of your amazing art! Well done everyone! I look forward to receiving more, so I can put them on the website.

I have added a few more activities/science experiments into the science folder for this week. Also, you can find a few more in the science folder from previous week. Have fun with making these experiments. I hope you will tell me all about it when we return to school. Maybe, you can write about the experiments you have done and tell me what did you find the most interesting?

Have a good day everyone

Stay safe

Mrs Saganowska

 

 

 

Monday 27thApril 2020

Dear Year 1,

 

Welcome to our learning this week. I have been preparing some exciting learning for you to do at home.  

This week in English, we are going to write sentences about our favourite food, learn how to join sentences with 'because' and look at poems.

 Don’t forget to use cursive writing though!

In Phonics, we are looking at the trigraph ‘air’.

In Maths, we are going to learn about fractions, finding a half and a quarter. I have also enclosed some practical activities to support your learning. I hope you will have fun with them.  

In Science, I would like you to try to find garden plants. Can you think of what is the difference between wild plants and garden plants?

In Art, I would like you to have a look at the sculptor Andy Goldsworthy. Can you challenge yourself and make a piece of art inspired by the artist’s work?

I have assigned few more books for you to read on Rising Stars too.

Please remember that these activities are optional and you can fit them in to your family routine in a way that suits you.

 

Yesterday, lovely Ms Alfredson send me few videos of the chicks that hatched few days ago. The chicks are the babies of the cockerel Year 1 hatched last year.

This is so exciting! Also, she has been busy with planting runner beans and panting a rainbow.  Have you done your rainbows? Did you remember the primary and secondary colours we learnt about?

See the wonderful pictures below!

PS. I made a wind charm yesterday, using tidy beads. It was a great fun too.

With all our best wishes from

Mrs Saganowska and Year 1 team

Good morning Year 1,

 

I hope you had a lovely week. Today, very early in the morning, I went for a run again and guess what I saw in the woods! A beautiful, young deer. I secretly took a picture of it and decided to share it on the website so you can see it too. Also, I run next to the farm and I saw two llamas, munching some grass in the distance.

What a great view it was!:)

Now, I am going to start to prepare some resources for you for next week. As you can see I created folders already and later on I am going to put a lot of activities for you to do. I hope you will like them.

I keep receiving your emails and your amazing work! I am glad you are all working hard at home. Very well done!

I hope you will share your work with me again next week.

 

Enjoy your weekend and this beautiful, sunny weather,

Mrs Saganowska

Good morning lovely Year 1 children,

 

How are you this morning? I am glad the weather is nice. I just came back from my morning run. I enjoy running a lot, it makes me feel very fit. I hope you are doing some exercises every day too, are you?

I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine and working hard at home. I would like to say a big THANK YOU to you and your parents, for writing and sending to me your wonderful letters. I am very impressed how much effort you put into writing neatly, joining letters, using full stops and capital letters. I am so proud of you!  You have done a brilliant Maths too and I like seeing that you are being creative in your learning. Most importantly, we are keeping in touch, that makes me very happy, because I miss seeing your smiley faces a lot.

So, I am working from home and researching interesting activities for you. Today, I will put a few more tasks on the website (check in in the science and additional learning folder). Have a look, there will be interesting science, art and gardening ideas/activities that you can make at home. If you feel like singing, access the link below. If you parents register on the website, you will be able to access free singing activities. Have fun!

Enjoy your day!

Best wishes

Mrs Saganowska

Wednesday 1st April 2020

Today is our last day of term. I would like to thank you all for your emails and for persevering with your learning at home. Over Easter holiday I encourage you to continue with the Science challenge. It is a perfect time for planting flowers or vegetables. You can decide which plant you are going to grow. Please have a lot of fun, enjoy the sunshine and hopefully the Easter bunny will hide for you a lot of chocolate eggs. If you are going to do something really exciting and educational, please send me a picture so we can share it on our class page. I will continue to check my emails and post your photos online.

Happy Easter to you all!

Stay safe.

Good morning All,

 

I hope you had a nice weekend and enjoyed the sunshine last week. Apart from coming to school, I have been busy with doing a lot of gardening, planting sunflowers and other summer plants. I have seen some of you have done planting too! 

 

Science challenge for everyone at Year 1:

Your task is to plant a seed and make a diary of how it grows over the next two months (8 weeks - 10 weeks). Please, ask your parent to take a picture of the plant once per week and print it out, stick it in your diary. (Alternatively, you can draw a picture of your plant each week). Write short sentences about how your plant grows. Describe the parts of the plant you can see. What are the colours, and how tall is it. An example of the plant diary you can find in a document below.

 

I hope you are going to have a very busy and exciting week. Please continue to do various activities from the Home Learning Pack and challenge yourself with Maths quizzes.

 

I have assigned 3 new books for you on the Rising Stars website. Please have a look and read them at home. I have seen some of you have read last three books and completed the online comprehension questions. Well done to all of those who have achieved star rewards. Brilliant work!

I look forward receiving from you emails and pictures of your amazing work! I really like seeing your smily faces. Keep checking the website so you can see what others have been up to.

 

Stay safe.

Mrs Saganowska
