Starfish Class (Rec/Y1)

A message from Mrs O'Brien to the Children!
'I am going to miss seeing each and every one of you! You all make me smile so much everyday. Enjoy your learning at home, enjoy reading and most of all keep safe! I have put some fun things on our website for you that I think you will enjoy. I cannot wait to see you all again. From the bottom of my heart, I hope you continue to be happy, safe and healthy! With love, Mrs O'Brien'
 
If any parents have any questions or concerns, feel free to email me on cobrien@highstreet.plymouth.sch.uk  I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Welcome to Starfish Class

 

For the next few weeks, while schools are closed, this page will be used to share home learning activities, resources and ideas. It will be updated every Monday morning with new content.
 
While you are at home, try to set a routine for each day including time to complete some of the activities on this page, time to take part in other things you enjoy doing and time for breaks and relaxation.
 
Don't feel like you have to do everything posted on here. Work with your child on choosing a range of things to complete during a week.
 
Above all, follow Government advice and keep yourself, your families and your community safe during this time.
 
We look forward to seeing you back at High Street safe and well as soon as possible.
 
On the right of the webpage you will see helpful links and below you will find weekly home learning!

 

 

For all KS1 children it will be really useful to keep practicing your sounds! Use the video clips to help. Double click to enlarge the video clip. Children should know their Set 1, set 2 and set 3 sounds by the end of year 1. By the end of foundation, children should know their set 1 and 2 sounds. Children should read and write words using these sounds.

Children love having parents who are playful, fun, interested and curious about them. Children enjoy feeling important and special and really benefit from having some individual time with parents.
Here are some creative activities that you can use with your child to support their emotional development at home. Play releases lots of feel good chemicals that help us feel calm, steady and connected. If possible, look to do these activities for as much as 20 minutes or more each day.
