Hello Everyone!

Do you like the picture of these little friends from a walk the other day? Lovely goslings.

This is the perfect time for spotting baby animals. Do you know what a baby hedgehog is called? It’s a cool name. Maybe drop it on an email for us, if you know or find it out! You could also tell us about any baby animals you see – maybe there is a nest in your garden.

Eid Mubarak to all those celebrating. Hope you have a wonderful time.

A big, big thank you to all of you who were able to join us on the Zoom talk on Friday. It was SO wonderful to see you all and your families. Well done for waiting patiently for your turns. Hopefully, you enjoyed all meeting together too.

Well, it’s time for half-term and we thought we would set you a fun series of challenges to keep you busy – all the details are below. We hope you enjoy them!

We look forward to seeing and hearing about all the interesting things you make, talk about and do. HAVE FUN!

May the 4th, 2020

 
                                                                      

Good morning,                                            

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!! Why have we put that, Year 1? As a little challenge – find out! We have left you a clue.  

 We hope you are all well and had a good weekend.

 

In last week’s newsletter, we said we were going to focus on something special this week. Do you remember what it was? Here’s a picture clue:

 

So, your Mission for this week, should you choose to accept it, is:

  1. Find out what is being celebrated on 8th May and why.
  2. Write or draw what it is all about. You could:
    1. Make a poster.
    2. Dress up as an evacuee and take a picture to send us. Maybe add a caption.
    3. Imagine you were there on 8th May 1945. Write a diary entry about the day you heard the news about VE Day and what the celebration was like – what happened in the streets? What did you see/hear/eat? Perhaps draw a picture too.
    4. Why do you think we still celebrate it now? Talk to an adult about it. Think about whether you think it is important that we still do and why or why not.
    5. Talk to an adult about WW2. Do they have any pictures they can show you, maybe of an older member of your family, during the war? Again, you could write and tell us about this, if you would like to.
    6. Learn some Wartime Songs. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=wartime+sing+along+songs&docid=608033765255808895&mid=23872A5B4E8A491F12BE23872A5B4E8A491F12BE&view=detail&FORM=VIRE  

We would love to see some of your work and share it on the Class Page, if you would like us to. We hope you have fun with this and have added some resources below. STAY SAFE! smiley

With very kind wishes from Mrs Burrows and Mrs Ovel.

ENJOY! smiley

 

                                                                                       Tuesday, 28th April, 2020.

Well hello again! 

 

With the weather changing we thought we would just drop you an extra note about your weather projects. You might find it interesting to see how different things look outside after the rain; not just the grass and the flowers but the sky too! We would love to see what you have been up to - weather charts, pictures, painting, writing, baking! Perhaps you could    send us some photographs of all the lovely things you have been doing. No pressure though. smiley We have both been trying our hands at various ways to keep fit and new challenges like sketching, for Mrs. Burrows and some new recipes, for Mrs. Ovel; when we're not busy working, of course!

 

Also, we had an email from one of our parents (any pictures can be given in at the school and if anyone has any ideas, please email them directly to the school to pass on. Thanks.)

 

'Hi everyone, I stopped to chat with one of my elderly neighbours (Betty, aged 92) yesterday. She lives by Buckhurst Hill Primary School and always stands at the window and waves to the children - it’s always the highlight of her day. Since the school has closed and we’ve been in lockdown she seems so lonely, one of her neighbours died recently. She has no family at all. She goes out EVERY DAY to the local shop at the top of the road (the shopkeeper is making sure she has everything she needs) - she really shouldn’t be putting herself at risk like this but she is craving company so she won’t let anyone shop for her.

 

I wondered how I could help her and cheer her up. I’m going to get my son to draw her a picture and write her a letter and I wondered if any other children might want to write to her too. I can print off letters and post them through her door if anyone would like to help or if you are passing her house, please wave and chat to her. Her name is Betty, she loves cats and foxes (she feeds the foxes every evening) and she has lived in Loughton/Buckhurst Hill since 1941.

 

I just feel so sad for her, if anyone has any other ideas, please let me know."

 

So, we are looking forward to hearing from you. We hope you are all keeping well and taking care of each other. We miss you and would really like to hear from you. smiley

 

With very kind regards,

Mrs Burrows and Mrs Ovel

Good Morning Everyone!  smiley

 

We hope you are all keeping well, have had a good weekend and have been enjoying some of the tasks we have shared with you.

 

Well, we are fast approaching May Day, which is a public holiday, usually celebrated on May 1st; now officially known as the Early May Bank Holiday. It is an ancient festival of Spring and currently, a traditional Spring holiday in many European countries. Dancing, singing and cake (yum!) are usually part of the festivities. This year, in Britain, it has been moved to 8th May to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day celebrations, which we will focus on next week.

                  

For ‘May Day’, perhaps you could design your own cake, card, poster or even have a go at making a mini maypole – perhaps with a straw and strands of wool. If you like, you could imagine having been to one of these celebrations and write a diary entry or story about it. You will find some activity sheets and a PowerPoint below. You could even have a go at Morris dancing, if you are feeling brave!

 

Just a reminder that many museums and some zoos have virtual tours, if you are looking for something different to do. There are a range of activities below, hopefully you will find them interesting. Stay safe.

 

With kind regards,

Mrs Burrows and Mrs Ovel.

Activities for week commencing 27.04.20 (The story worksheets are marked *, ** or *** for level of difficulty and there is an answer sheet after EACH set of questions).

Just to give you an idea of what you should see:

 

19th April 2020

Hi year 1 and Happy Sunday!

 

We hope you had a lovely, if a little strange, Easter break and enjoyed the glorious weather we had.  Are you having fun completing the Weather project and investigating the shape shadows?

 

If you're looking for a bit of a routine, here is a suggestion:

 

  9.00 -   9.30 - P.E with Joe Wickes (on Youtube daily)

  9.30 - 10.30 - English activity - either reading, writing or grammar.

10.30 - 10.45 - Take a break!

10.45 - 11.30 - Maths activity

11.30 - 12.00 - Phonics play/handwriting practice (letter formation)These have proven popular with some people: https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/programmes/phonics/

12.00 - 13.00 - Lunch

13.00 - 13.20 - Quiet reading.

13.20 - 14.30 – Topic (Geography weather investigations and activities)

14.30 - 14.45 - Take a break!

14.45 - 15.00 – Word based activities (Maybe select 5 Spellings a week)

15.00 - 15.15 - Singing/Story

 

This is not a routine that we're saying you will have to do - just if you wanted an idea of how to plan the days.  Please don't feel bad/guilty if you haven't done much at all in a day.  Find what works for you as a family (and that might be doing some cooking, playing games, going for a walk away from others). It's a funny time for all of us and the most important thing is that we all feel as happy and safe as we can. 

 

Missing you all, stay safe

Mrs Burrows & Mrs Ovel

Dear All

 

Hello! We hope you are all keeping well and have been able to have a good weekend with all the sunshine to enjoy. We miss you!

Below you will find out your new Project! Please feel free to take at your own pace. It is a Geography project all about ‘Weather’. Something we love to talk about in Britain! It would be good to watch some weather forecasts too and talk about them together.

 

In addition to the things we have set out in the project, some other fun ideas you could try are:

  • On sunny days, if possible, go into your garden and make shapes on the ground with your shadow. Challenge each other to make a duck, a rocket or something else! Look at how any flowers in your garden respond to the sun. Are there any buds in your garden? What is happening to them?
  • On cloudy days, see if you can spot shapes made by the clouds. You might find a rabbit or a dragon or a spaceship! You could then try drawing them or writing about them.
  • On rainy days, look out at the differences in your garden. Do the flowers look different? How? You could also make a simple weather chart showing which days are rainy, sunny, cloudy, etc. How could you measure how much rain falls each day? Get your brains working!

 

We hope you find some things that interest you. You could also listen to The Four Seasons, by Vivaldi, with the children and talk about how the music for each season reflects their individual features. This link has a different picture for each season, which means you can just sample each season, if you don’t feel like listening to it all! https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=the+four+seasons+by+vivaldi&&view=detail&mid=76D8E1123C16F3EF14D376D8E1123C16F3EF14D3&&FORM=VRDGAR&ru=%2Fvideos%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dthe%2Bfour%2Bseasons%2Bby%2Bvivaldi%26FORM%3DHDRSC3. (Any problems, just look up ‘The Four Seasons’ by Vivaldi, choosing Video as your search option).

We hope you have lots of fun trying different things and discovering interesting facts. Do feel free to let us know how it goes.

 

 

Take care and kindest regards,

Mrs Burrows and Mrs Ovel.

For anyone who hasn't discovered him yet, Joe Wicks streams PE lessons, on YouTube, live at 9am week days, called 'PE with Joe' or they can be viewed later on his channel: The Body Coach TV - YouTube. It is also a great time to be looking at how things are growing and changing in the garden, which is something we would have exploring in Science; it can also be a lot of fun! angel

 

We will be adding more updates later in the week. 

For now, wishing you all the best for a safe and healthy time together.

 

With kindest regards,

Mrs Burrows and Mrs Ovel.

 

 

Dear All - hope you are all keeping well and enjoying your time together. Here are some further ideas for things to do. Hope you enjoy them! The Maths sheets get progressively more difficult, to give you a choice. If you can help the children to understand the link between halving and doubling by looking through their answers, that would be great! The reading comprehension is a challenge task so if they seem to be enjoying it, then that's good but if not then it might be best not to force it. If you are able to print it out, the children could go on a digraph and trigraph hunt, underlining or highlighting any of their Phonics that they spot in the story. If you can't print, then the children could just point them out to you on the screen. If you don't have 'sticks' as such for the stick puppets then it should work with cut up strips of a cereal box or something similar. We will be updating things regularly and hope this is useful to you. Just a reminder about the games on Phonics Play which they children are familiar with and enjoy. Also there are lots of resources on Twinkl, which you may find useful (www.twinkl.co.uk/home-learning-hub) or if you need to create an account, they are offering a 1 month free trial. Step 1: Go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer Step 2: Create an account and enter the offer code CVDTWINKLHELPS. Also, it would be great if (with the permission and support of your parents/carers) you would like to send in any pictures of your work, or messages about what you have been up to (and, parents/carers, let us know if you would be happy for them to be shared on the class page!). We miss you! Have fun learning! Warmest wishes to all. Mrs Burrows and Mrs Ovel.
