Update

We are now in the third week of the Summer 2 half term! This is the first week that some of our children are going to be returning to school. We are so excited to see you! Here are a few little reminders:

  • Home learning content will continue to uploaded to our class page. Please note yellow highlight text on the WALT overview. 
  • For those children returning on Monday or Thursday, please ensure that you have read the letters and watched the video that outlines the changes to our school. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! 
  • The 'Phonics Actions' that we use for each sound are still available. Please email year1@st-matthews.leeds.sch.uk if you would like a copy. 
  • Please continue to email us to say hello and to share something that you have done at home - our email is year1@st-matthews.leeds.sch.uk 

Take care and stay safe, 

Miss Alderson & Miss Harrison

 

Zoom call

This Wednesday is our first class Zoom call! We are very excited to see you. You should have received a ParentMail with the link to your class meeting - if you didn't, please contact the School Office as soon as possible. 
This week, we would like all children to bring something that is special to them. This could be a picture, an object, a person or a pet - it can be anything as long as it can be shown on camera. During the call, we will ask each child the following questions so please ensure that you have spoken to your child about this prior to the call. 

  • What is your special object? 
  • Why is it special to you?

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email year1@st-matthews.leeds.sch.uk. 

We can't wait to see you on Wednesday!

 

Weekly overview

Below is the weekly overview which outlines the learning objectives (WALTs) that are going to covered in the tasks.

Here is a reminder of how our differentiation works: 

  • 1 chilli mild - the easiest version of the task.
  • 2 chillies medium - the version that we'd expect most children to be able to access. 
  • 3 chillies spicy - a difficult version of the task for children that require a challenge. 
  • 4 chillies super spicy - the most difficult version of the task for the children that require a challenge, having securely understood previous tasks. 

Please don't be afraid to hop between the different levels of challenge.

Due to the recent events that are happening around the world, we would like to children to gain a little more understanding (at a level that is appropriate for their age)  about the Black Lives Matter movement and how we can raise awareness of tackling racism. We understand that this is a very delicate and sensitive matter but we hope that you can help us to educate our children in matters as important as this one. 

Raising awareness of racism
