Welcome to Year 1 at New Hartley First School

School Closure / Home Learning
Notice for Parents/Carers:
From Monday 4th May I will provide a timetable for the week. It will be displayed here and also sent to parents via the school app.
This will consist of a suggested structure for children to work to during the week. Each day will have IT based activities and alternative paper based or practical ideas and will consist of reading, writing, maths, physical and one other activity eg. Creative, research etc.
Please remember that these are suggestions. There is no expectation that all activities must be completed, or that they should take the equivalent of an entire school day. Some activities will be shorter than others, whilst some may be open ended.
I hope you find the new structure helpful, and please remember I am always available via email/school app to answer queries and support you.
Week beginning 18th May 2020
For additional ideas or resources feel free to have a look at Northumberland's Padlet using this link:
Week beginning 11th May 2020
Week beginning 4th May 2020
Helping children to talk about their feeling during this time.
Please do not feel you must print this booklet to make use of it, unless you have access to a printer and want to.
Instead we thought you might like to use the activities and ideas as conversation starters to help you find out how your children are coping emotionally and to give them the opportunity to share any questions they may have.
Any activities that are suggested as recording/drawing tasks can just as easily be done through conversation or be copied by hand however you like!
(Thank you to a kind parent for sharing this with us!)
What have Year 1 been getting up to?
If you would like to share what your child has been up to feel free to send photos to add to our class page. Please send them direct to Mrs Banks firstname.lastname@example.org
I am happy to receive photos for all families. Please be reassured that in-line with GDPR, children's photos will only be published on the website if prior parental consent has been given.
What have the Banks family been up to?
As the weeks go by there are more birthdays and we find more and more to do around the house and garden!
Useful links to online resources.
These sites can be used to supplement the suggestions in the weekly timetable. Feel free to dip into these as often as you like.
There is a 'parent help video' available to click on, above the login details, when you open this link.
The video guides you to some of the key programs you and your child can access through school360, including: Northumberland's Home Learning page, BBC Bitesize, j2e and my new favourite, Busy Things!
What we get up to in
These photos will give you a sneak peak into some of the activities we get up to in our lessons.
On Thursday 14th November 2019 Year 1 children invited their parents and carers into school to our very first 'Share a Book Coffee Morning'. It was a huge success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed reading their favourite stories with the people they love!
