Y1 Notice Board during school closure
SCHOOL IS CLOSED DUE TO THE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19.
We use this Notice Board each day to signpost you to work set on Google Classroom. If you need to contact us please use the following email addresses:
If you have serious concerns about anything please email SLT on: SLT@belmont.hounslow.sch.uk
We hope that you and your families stay safe and well at this very difficult time.
Week beginning: Monday 18th January 2021
Please join the live Google Meetings every morning at 9.15am (until 9.30am). We will do the register and go through the three lessons for the day ahead.
Please join us at 2.45pm (until 3.15pm) for a live session to reflect on the day's learning.
Links are available on the Google Classroom stream.
Every day we will set three lessons (assignments) on the Google Classrooms. These will go live at 8.45am. Please take photos of your work and attach these to the assignment. You must submit/turn-in/mark as done when you finish the task. This sends us an alert and we will mark it. Please try to complete the assignments on the same day - just as if you were in school.
Another Lockdown can only mean one thing…….another photography competition! 📸
The first round of the competition is now open and the theme is: Winter Wonder ❄️
The photographs are all put into a gallery on the Belmont School website. Voting then takes place during the following week with the winners announced in the Belmont Star and on Year Group Noticeboards/Google Classroom.
Please submit your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ensure that you write your child's year group, class and name in the subject of the email. This makes it much easier for us to sort all of the entries into their Phase Groups.
A reminder of the rules:
Only one photograph per pupil to be entered
The photograph must be taken by the pupil in the last week
The photograph must be linked to the theme above.
It should have an imaginative title which is submitted along with the photograph
The only editing allowed is cropping
All the entries must be submitted to email@example.com email by Thursday 21st January at 5pm.
This week we are continuing to looking at the traditional story, 'Jack and the Beanstalk.' We will be writing speech bubbles for the characters and having a go at writing out the whole story.
Some books we have read in Year1 are:
In Maths this week we are looking at finding doubles and halves of numbers and at number bonds up to 20.
This week, in Geography, we will be looking at the difference between human and physical features using the Isle of Struay from the Katie Morag stories as a focus.
In Science we are introducing the new topic of Animals and the children will think about and describe their favourite animal.
We will be continuing with Yoga and there will be another Music lesson too.
It is incredibly important that the children are reading every day and unfortunately they are currently unable to take home reading books from school. The Oxford Owl website (as mentioned below) is an excellent resource where you can access lots of free colour banded e-books which will match your child's current reading level and will be similar to many of the reading books that they would normally bring home from school. Please do make sure to use this resource.
