This Week's Shooting Star Winner... Well Done!

Children in Need PJ day & Friendship Week Odd Sock Day

Click here to see our curriculum plan for the second Autumn half term.

Look at our brilliant outfits!

Just a reminder that it is our DRESSING UP DAY this THURSDAY! It can be anything Halloween related, a book character - whatever you like! We will also do spellings quickly on Thursday too so please send spelling homework sheets on then so the children can get their Dojo points for completing it! 

 

We break up for Half Term on Thursday at the usual time of 3.10/15. 

 

I also just wanted to welcome another member to the KS1 team - Miss Allen - who will be working in all the KS1 classes, but in our class on a Thursday and Friday. You may see her around on the door and writing in reading records etc. so just wanted to let you know!

We have been busy settling into our new class and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air while we can! 

Have a look at some photos of us playing in our outdoor area...

Welcome to 1P!

Hello everybody! I am Miss Pearson and I am the class teacher in 1P. We are very lucky to have our teaching assistants Mrs Davidson (Mon-Thur) and Miss McKenna (Mon-Fri) who help us with all our work! Miss Fort also teaches in class on a Wednesday morning. 

 

We are all aware that this year may be a little more unusual, but please rest assured, things are as normal as possible and whilst the children are in our classroom, we are working as we usually would - plus a little extra hand washing!!

We will still learn all the wonderful things we always do and we will be able to work and play together with our friends. 

Lunchtime and play times we simply have our own area - so we can still play outside, just with our own class. 

 

If you have any questions or anything you think I may need to know, please speak to me. It is a little bit more difficult to speak in person at the moment so if we cannot do so, I can speak to you on the telephone or email - my class email is padiham1p@padiham.lancs.sch.uk

This will be replied to as and when I can - so anything urgent please ask me to call you or try to catch me once all the children have been collected after school. 

It is also really lovely to use the email to send photos of what your child has been up to and we can share it with the class. 

 

 

We will be handing out reading books this week - please try to read as much as possible - even just a few pages per night. This is especially important considering how much school the children have missed this year. Reading is crucial to your child's progress and we would really advise this as a main focus for you to do at home. 

 

* PE lessons are timetabled for Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school this week and that ALL items are labelled. Pumps are necessary as we hope to do PE outside as much as possible. 

 

* Homework - Spellings will be given out each Friday to learn and practice at home - this should be returned the following Friday (not before as the children can then practice up until that day) and the children will be given a little test to see if they can write the words. This is not something which the children should worry about - in fact each year the children seem to look forward to Friday spellings! 

 

* Water bottles - please provide your child with a water bottle to keep in class. We will refill this each day and send this home on a Friday for you to wash properly. Please ensure it is returned again on Monday. 

 

Any questions, please ask!

Any other notices I will add here when necessary.

Information to help your child if they are isolating at home

Fingers crossed we hope this year will go more smoothly than the last, but realistically there may be times when certain children, or even whole class bubbles, may have to isolate at home because of Covid 19. Any of the activities you are able to complete at home will be beneficial to your child, so please don't worry if you're doing it perfectly. Just reading a story each day would be amazing ( especially if your child is feeling unwell). Below we will add the blocks of work for you to use at home if your child is absent from school. There will also be worksheets available from school for those who do not have access to online resources. 

 

Below you will find a variety of resources which we regularly use in school to help you with home schooling. The maths consists of teaching videos and matching worksheets. The English will be a range of activities that follow what we are doing in school this term. Purple Mash is an excellent resource and covers many aspects of the curriculum. Apps like Doodle maths and Numbots are very useful when you wish your child to work independently, and the Oxford Owls and Phonics Play websites are great for reading.

The work and weekly plan here are to help to organise your child's home learning while they cannot attend school as your family are isolating. If the whole class is isolating please see the blocks further down the page.

Below are some websites which may also be useful. This can add to and enhance your child's learning during self isolation but also in general throughout the year.

 

   Maths Lessons:

In school we often use the resources from a scheme called White Rose Maths. Follow the link below to their website, and this will give you access to our home learning videos. Your child can watch these (they will need to do this with support from an adult ), and then the pdf's below are worksheets that your child can then complete. Email to check which lesson we are currently learning.

Useful websites for home learning:

 

This is great for access to lots of reading books that we use in school, plus lots more activities too.

Purple Mash is great. You child can have fun creating their own games, writing stories, creating artwork etc really independently. It has videos to help you to learn what to do.

Numbots will develop your child's maths skills well.

BBC Bitesize has a range of videos to keep your child learning across the curriculum.

Doodle maths is great for independent maths work.

GoNoodle is great for getting active indoors.
Scarf is used in school and has activities to support social and emotional education.
