Welcome to Class 1DO
Welcome to our class page. We are a class of 31 friendly, hardworking children, who love to learn new and exciting things. We are continuing our learning journey this year with Mrs Dwan, Mrs Oldhams and Mrs Turnbull.
We will be visiting lots of new topics as we develop our skills in maths, English and lots of other subjects through exciting, active lessons.
We will also be helping each other to understand the Christian Values and follow them in our daily lives.
We hope you enjoy looking at our class page.
Week 1 of 'home schooling' March 2020 - information also sent to parents by email

Following on with our Kenya topic, we would have used the book ‘Giraffes can’t dance!’ It’s a gorgeous book which highlights how great it is to be different and how we should accept the fact that everyone is different.
Please find attached a powepoint of the story (I bet most of you have the book at home too) and also a lesson plan.
The lesson plan has great ideas for teaching and learning all linked to the story.
These are the Learning Objectives we would have been consolidating this week
LO: I can identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals
LO: I can describe and compare the structure of a variety of common animals (fish, amphibians, retiles, birds and mammals, including pets)
LO: I can identify and classify.
The children could maybe make a poster or do a little bit of writing after researching these science learning objectives.
Spring 2 Week 5
As you know, in geography we have been learning about Kenya. This week we would have been learning about the Masai tribe. I have attached a powerpoint that I would have used. I would have also looked at he Masai jumping dance on you tube and the children always love to join in with things like that.
LO- I can discuss the Massai culture and say how it is different to our culture
We have set three 2Do’s on Purple Mash
Quizzes & games – Carnivore labelling & grouping carnivore/herbivore & omnivores
A written task – looks fun! Safari animal fact sheet.
Reinforcement of these LO’s would be fab as children still need to practise.
I can remember most of the number bonds to 10 and link the connected facts.
I can use number bonds to 20.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6udqW6VhWg – number bonds to 20
Make Target Number Posters – How many ways can you make 10 /20 using known facts (all operations)
Games to play – Snakes and Ladders & dominoes good way of practising addition & subtraction in a fun way.
We hope that you have lots of fun exploring these resources.
Remember to let me, Mrs O or Mrs T know if you need any help.
I will email you every Wednesday with ideas for the following week.
Take care and see you all soon

Sadly, due to guidance around COVID-19, we are unable to invite family members in for the Year 1 assembly which was due to take place on Wednesday 18th March 2020. I have Uploaded to PowerPoint that we were going to use and I have also managed to record the children rehearsing which I will share with parents at some point. Hopefully this will cheer you up during this challenging time for us all.
