Lockdown Learning at Home

Learning at Home

The Year One teachers would like to tell you how much we are missing all of your children during this unusual time. It has been a pleasure to teach them and watch them flourish this year and we look forward to seeing them all again when we are allowed to reopen the school. During this period, we encourage children to continue with their learning from home as best you can. There are many excellent resources available to help with this which we have provided links to on these pages.

Before school closed, all children were sent home with a 'Learning at Home' pack. This included extra school reading books, ideas for home learning writing, reading and maths tasks, phonics bookmarks for sounds your child was working on, spelling and phonics practise and games, as well as letter and number formation sheets.

In addition to the packs, all children have a login to the Purple Mash website. Activities are uploaded on this site each week for your children to complete under the 2Dos section. Your child’s login has been attached to the inside of their reading record book.

Children also have a personal login to the Nessy website where you can find games and activities to help with your child’s spelling and phonics. You need to consent to your child using the website by clicking on the link provided in the appropriate parentmail. If you need help with this, or are not sure of your child’s login details, please email the school office and they will send you your details.

To keep you updated we have a 'Hook Infant School Year 1' Facebook page which is updated regularly so if you have Facebook following this page would also be useful: https://www.facebook.com/Hook-Infant-School-Year-1-101093328207590/

Below there are a few core resources that would be good for you to use. If you would like more specific English and Maths resources please look at the pages on this site under 'Curriculum' - 'Year 1'.

The most important thing for your children at this time is for them to be happy and feel safe. We miss your children a lot and cannot wait to see them once again. Please let us know if there is anything we can help with.

Take care and stay safe,

The Year One Team
