This half term our topic is:
In the Movers and Shakers project, your child will learn five statements from Dawson's model that will help them identify people who are historically significant and use the words year, decade and century to describe dates and times. They will study the life and impact of a significant person in the locality and of 10 significant individuals from around the world. They will complete in-depth studies of significant explorers Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong, and significant activists Emmeline Pankhurst and Rosa Parks and think carefully about the impact of their actions. The children will also carry out an independent study of a significant person from the past and learn about people who are significant today. They will also learn how significant people are commemorated and design a memorial for a person they have studied.
PurpleMash: Children are set weekly tasks on PurpleMash in their '2Do' folder which they are encouraged to complete at home.
Home Learning Project: We ask children to choose to complete a home learning project linked to their curriculum project being studied. Home learning projects provide a fun and creative opportunity for children to practise and apply new skills, as well as express their knowledge in a topic area.
PhonicsPlay - Fun activities to support early reading skills. Phases 4 and 5 activities are appropriate for most Year 1 children, whilst some children would benefit from practising other phases carefully linked to their progress. Ask your child's class teacher if you would like some support/further information. Type in the following details username: march20 password: home
