Class 1

Welcome to Class One. 


We are so pleased you’ve chosen to start your school life with us.
In Class One, we learn through play and see your child's skills grow, so your child is ready to enjoy their school life to the full. 


We love to see your home learning. Please bring your creations and achievements in to share with us. 
Below are a few websites and ideas of activities to try at home. We hope you enjoy them! 

 

Please use the knowledge organiser to learn a little about our current topics.  The vocabulary dozen will help your child to become familiar with some of the terms or new language, which we will be using within our lessons.

 

The homework sheet provides a number of challenges which can be completed when your child is at home. 

 

We really do love to see your child learning and creating beautiful pictures and projects at home, so please bring them in to share with class, or alternatively email them to myself at e.clark@greenhaworth.lancs.sch.uk  

 

If you have any questions, however large or small, please don’t hesitate to speak to us. We will be delighted to help you as much as we can.  Alternatively, if you prefer to email Mrs Clark directly, please email at e.clark@greenhaworth.lancs.sch.uk and I will be very happy to help.
 

Thank you, 
Mrs Clark, Mrs Pilling and Miss Tattersall. 

Summer 2

 

Welcome back to school, I hope you all had a lovely half term and Jubilee break, with your families.

I can't believe we are now in our final half term of the year!

 

Our topic for this half term is Change ahead - Green fingers and growing up! 

 

Over the next few weeks in Science, we will be learning about plants, trees and how they grow.  We will be going on minibeast hunts and observing our findings.  We will also be using our scientific knowledge within our literacy, as we read fictional stories and non fiction text about minibeasts.

 

Our topic work will build on our earlier learning when we learnt about seasons and the oceans.  In Geography we will be learning about continents and the oceans, as well as hot and cold climates.

 

In RE, we will be learning all about Creation and special times for us all.

 

Maths begins with money - identifying different coins and exploring how we can use different coins to make amounts.  We will then be moving onto time, exploring clocks and how to tell the time.

 

To explain more, I have attached our knowledge organiser and homework sheet.  Please try to complete a homework each week, if you can.  As always, try to read each day too, even if it's for a few minutes.

 

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me, or alternatively email at   e.clark@greenhaworth.lancs.sch.uk 

 

Thank you for your ongoing support, 

Mrs Clark.  
 

Knowledge Organiser

What an amazing Spring term we have had.  Here are some photographs from our topic.

 

We hope you enjoy seeing the fun we have had and some examples of our fabulous work.

Dinosaurs!

Fossil hunters - we researched fossils and made our own bones, claws and teeth. We made these as part of our end of term SCARF celebration.

Use the relevant links below for each of the sessions on our timetable. Remember you will need sound on.

Remember to pause the videos to give yourselves enough time to complete the activities set and then start them playing again when you are ready.

Reading is a very important skill, and one which helps your child during their time at school, and throughout their whole life.  Please encourage your child to read their home reading book as often as possible.  Please let them sound out words and support them to blend the sounds together rather than reading the books to your child.

 

Children learn a great deal from being read to too.  Please read others stories to them as well, and encourage them to say what might happen next, what they like and to describe any characters too.   Libraries have many beautiful picture books which I am sure your child (and you!) will enjoy.

 

Thank you,

Mrs Clark.

 

 

 

Home Learning during lockdown 

Please regularly check your emails for any updates and for timetable ideas. 
 

Alongside the online learning, please try to complete tasks from the homework grid, as these inlcude key learning from this half term.

 

We very much recognise that all children learn differently and learning through play is a vital part of children’s development. 
 

Please try to make all of the learning fun and try not to worry if you have days when learning doesn’t go to plan. It happens to us all!
 

We couldn’t be more proud of our children and yourselves.
 

Thank you for everything you are doing throughout these difficult times and for your ongoing support as your child’s primary educator. 

 

Here is a suggested timetable, please note this is only a guide.

A different way of learning.

We very much recognise that children learn differently at home, so it may be that some lessons are more challenging or children would enjoy extending their learning further / exploring other topics for a few lessons. 

 

Please look at the lessons and use the reception / year one titles as a guide rather than feeling like you must follow the year group your child is in.

PHONICS

 

Here are the links for Spelling Shed and Purple Mash:

Phonics Play are also offering free access to their games and activities. Log in details are available on their site https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ 

 

Please note that we use the cursive 'k' in our handwriting policy which is not always available in the Power points so I have attached a handwriting formation poster under the weekly phonics as a guide. I hope this helps.

You are amazing! Let’s celebrate your work. 
 

We love to see your amazing work and creations.

Mrs Clark’s simple cupcake recipe 


I’ve made these lots of times and every time they’ve turned out to be very delicious 😊

 

You will need an adult to help you to weigh your ingredients and with the oven.
 

Remember, never go near an oven when it is on. They can be very dangerous

Ingredients  
125g self raising flour

125g butter or margarine 

125g caster sugar 

2 medium sized eggs 

12 bun cases

 

For decoration 

icing sugar

sprinkles for decoration. 
 

1. Ask an adult to preheat the oven to 180 degrees C or gas mark 4. 
2.  Carefully put one bun case into each bun tray hole. 
3. Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl, all at once. Make sure everything is smooth and it should look nice and creamy. 
4. Carefully spoon the mix into the cases and make sure each one gets about the same amount. 
5. Ask your adult for help and remember to stay away from the oven...Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. 
6. Put the icing sugar into a bowl and add a little water, you won’t need much! You can add food colouring if you want to. 
7.  When the cakes are cooked they will look nice and lightly browned. 
8.  When they are cool, use a spoon or butter knife to spread the icing and add sprinkles if you like. 
9.  The best bit...enjoy eating them and share them with your family. 
Here’s a photo of ours, I’m sure yours will look just as tasty 😊
