Every day is full of fun and learning in F1. Our classroom is based on the curiosity approach, this means we use open ended resources to allow the children to explore the classroom in their own way. Curiosity is an innate drive within young children and through our purposeful, thoughtful environment we can inspire children to be inquisitive and creative thinkers. 

 

Please check out our class blog on purple mash which is being updated daily with phonics and maths lesson activities.

Virtual School

 

Hello everyone, Miss Fecak here! 

 

As we can't be at school at the moment I will be adding jobs and activities you can do at home to our class page. 

I would like the children in F1 to complete their 'Daily Jobs' list that was included in their packs and also practise their fine motor skills with the tools provided (rainbow ribbon, cutting activities and dough disco!). If you have any photos of your child doing their work please forward them to my email and I will share them on this page too! 

You now all have access to Mini Mash on the purple mash website, please log in and access the wide range of games and activities you have. 

I am able to set tasks and pins so please look out for those too! 

In F1 our class expectation is 3x 20 minute daily focused learning sessions. 

1x phonics, 1x maths, and 1x creative, topic based activity. 

If you have any questions at all, please email me kfecak@bilsthorpefha.org.

 

As well as keeping our minds learning and active, its important to keep our bodies active too!

Maths!

Week Commencing 30th March 2020

This week in maths we are learning to:

''Separate a group of three or four objects in different ways, begin to recognise that the total is still the same'

You can do this at home by...

  • Play a number game while you have a snack. Count out four small items of food, such as strawberries, and place them on to a plate. Then, give some of the strawberries to a grown-up to put on their plate. How many strawberries do you have? How many does your grown-up have? How many altogether?
  • Have a building challenge using four building bricks. Use your building bricks to build a model. Can you make a different model using the same number of bricks?
  • Play a hide and seek game using three soft toys. Close your eyes and ask a grown-up to hide the toys around the room. Open your eyes and find the toys. How many are there altogether? Then, you can hide the toys for your grown-up to find. Can they find them all?
  • Use two empty cardboard boxes as pretend buses. Collect four small toys to ride on the buses. How many toys are on each bus? How many toys altogether?
  • Ask a grown-up to find three of the same coin, such as three 10p coins. Turn the coins so that you can see the Queen’s face on each one. How many coins do you have? Now, turn some of the coins over. How many are showing the Queen? How many are up the other way? How many altogether?

  • How old are you? Draw yourself a yummy birthday cake. Can you draw the right number of candles on the top of the cake? Try to draw the same number of balloons above the cake and the same number of presents next to your cake.
