It has been wonderful to have the children back in Anning Class, but we are aware that there may be a possibility you and your families have to isolate whilst we are living through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some of our families, who have already had to isolate for 10 days, have requested home learning for their children. As a response to this, we would like to point you in the direction of the Oak Academy Trust website:
This website was established by the Government in response to the COVID-19 lockdown and for the children of families having to isolate or shield at home.
You will find videos of Year 1 teachers teaching all the curriculum subjects. There are English, maths, science, PSHE, music and geography lessons for you and your child to access.
Our topic for this term is Digging Deep! I have attached the Knowledge Organiser, which will show you the key learning objectives. If you are isolating at home, it would be useful for your child to learn about Mary Anning who, as a young girl, found an ichthyosaur in the cliffs of Lyme Regis.
Other activities to support the teaching of our topic:
* research different types of dinosaurs (were they carnivores or herbivores?)
* read or watch Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs (one of our main literacy texts of the term) and answer questions about the events and characters in the story
* watch Andy's Dinosaur Adventures on cbeebies iplayer:
* access games and podcasts on the cbeebies topic page: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/topics/dinosaurs
You will also find a selection of useful websites, to support the development of your child's literacy and numeracy skills, in the 'School Closure' section of our Class Page.
If you are having to isolate and have any questions, please email me and I will certainly help you with activities and resources:
