Work for today

Thursday 19th March

 

As you are aware, each day we will be posting work for the children. We understand that many of you are working from home and have commitments to fulfil. We don't want you to feel overwhelmed - don't feel you have to do everything. We will aim to keep a balance between using an ipad/laptop or worksheets. In addition, let the children play outside if the weather permits, listen to music, colour and build. They can even help with chores around the house. But most importantly (as you know) they will need lots of cuddles! You are parents first, you don't have to be teachers and this isn't forever.

 

We hope that you are all keeping safe and well. Children, we miss seeing you on a daily basis so please send us messages and photos!

 

You can start each day with your favourite "Wake Up" routine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gUbdNbu6ak  

 

Please make sure that you read every day. Use the Oxford Owl website or read a book from home.

 

Work for today

  • Maths - Today we will continue our work on measuring length and height. Please watch the PowerPoint and then complete the 2 worksheets            
  • Creative writing - read the poem from Mrs Sondhelm and then write your own Colour Poem. Start each line the same way as Mrs Sondhelm: Red is ......, Blue is ......
  • Remember to make each sentence interesting 
  • Science -Following on from our Science work on animals, here are two activities for you to complete. Try to do one of the activities. You can do both if you wish. 

    The first activity involves using a key to work out which animal is which. It is probably best to cut the pictures out first and then group them using the first clue and then subsequent clues to help you work out which animal goes where. Enjoy! 

 

Please see below details about uploading your work to Classroom.

 

Take care,

 

Mrs Borman and Mrs Rosenberg

What an exciting week this has been. 

 

Our STEM activities started on Monday with a special assembly. Mrs Dalwai, who is not only a teacher, but a virologist, talked to us about COVID -19. She explained about the virus and how it spreads. We watched a video by Dr Chris and Dr X  https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/51342366 and a video about handwashing https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/51342366. Mrs Steel demonstrated some interesting experiments which included making a kebab balloon, listening to different pitches made from blowing straws and making a volcano.

 

Purim at Kerem was amazing. The children looked wonderful in their fancy dress costumes and their Zumba moves were very professional.

 

In Maths this week we have been counting in 2's and 5's. We have also been investigating odd and even numbers. Try this activity  ( Enter the biggest two-digit even/odd number you can think of that uses the digit:) - https://nrich.maths.org/7431 - you can also change the interactivity to find even numbers.

 

On Thursday we had so much building bird nests as part of STEM week. We watched some time-lapsed videos of birds building their nests in Spring. We discussed what sorts of materials birds would use and the techniques that they would use to build their nests. We went on a short nature walk and collected items to build our birds nest and then designed and built our own using collage. Take a look at our fabulous STEM nests!

 

Today we continued our STEM activities and made models of famous London landmarks. We used VR (virtual reality) to look at these buildings and then worked with Year 6 to build them from junk.

 

Shabbat Shalom and have a lovely weekend.

Welcome back after the half term break. The children have enjoyed sharing their news about their skiing trips and visits to museums, soft play, the cinema and ice rinks. Many thanks for all the lovely winter photos. Please remember to send some for our seasons display.

 

This week we have been enjoying reading the lovely book ‘Handa’s Surprise’ which tells the story of a little girl from a Kenyan village and her surprising journey to take her friend a gift. The children loved listening to it, sequencing the events and retelling the narrative from memory.  On Thursday, when it was sleeting, we wrote "Snow" stories with Mrs Sondhelm!

 

In Maths we have started our new topic of place value and have been counting forwards and backwards from different numbers. We have used practical equipment to represent numbers and have grouped them into tens and ones. We have also found 1 more and 1 less than different numbers. See photos below.

Science

In our Science lessons this week we started learning about the food that different animals eat. We learnt the terms herbivore, carnivore and omnivore. The children's exiting knowledge was excellent and we had a brilliant class discussion.

The children enjoyed watching the link below so we have included it on the blog this week.

Winter display 

For the last few years we have had at least one snowy day so that we could add winter photos to our Seasons display. As my wish for snow has not been granted, please can you take a winter photo during half term for our display. Any skiing photos would be most welcome.

 

Wishing you Shabbat Shalom and a lovely half term.

Book week

Jewish Studies

 

In this week's Parsha Yitro, the children learnt how Hashem asked lots of different nations if they would like his special present - the Torah, but they all said “No”. However, the Jewish people answered “Yes”.  The Jewish people stood around Har Sinai and Moshe went up the mountain to Hashem to receive the Luchot - the 10 commandments.  We discussed all of the 10 commandments, but concentrated on (4) keep Shabbat, (5) listen to your parents, (8) do not steal and (9) do not lie.

Week ending 7/2/20

 

This week has been so special for Year 1. The children were really excited to receive their very own Siddur and it has been wonderful to see the joy they are experiencing when saying their Tefillot.

Should anything different be happening at home, however insignificant you think it is, please do let us know. The smallest of changes can have an impact on a child's mood or behaviour and knowing things in advance helps us to be aware of possible changes and be ready to offer support. These might include but are not limited to, a parent being away from home on business, a member of the family being in hospital, a bereavement, a break in etc 

 

 

Shabbat Shalom and have a lovely weekend,

We listened to the 'Just So' story by Rudyard Kipling called The Elephant's Child. It explains how the elephant came to have such a long trunk.

Please ask the children to tell you about the stories and what they liked.

We had so much fun and cannot wait to see what adventures we will all have next half term at Forest School.

Week ending 6/9/19

 

Year 1 have had a great start to the new term, becoming familiar with new teachers and new routines.

 

The children have worked hard at concentrating and listening this week. We have spent time introducing them to their classroom and teaching them about the routines of the school day. They have listened well and are learning to following instructions carefully. Soon it will all be second nature to them ....

 

So that the children can develop their love for reading, home readers have been sent home today. The children are continuing with their Reception reading levels and these will be adjusted accordingly in the next few weeks. Please write a short comment in the reading journal. Books should be returned on Monday.

 

On Thursday afternoon, the children had a wonderful first session at Forest School. They thoroughly enjoyed meeting up with the leaders again after the summer holidays. The children were all very enthusiastic and had remembered so much from last year. We all had fun identifying different leaves on a detective hunt. They learnt about some different types of leaves and what trees they came from. We also worked collaboratively in pairs to twist together coloured string in order to produce a strong form of rope. We had so much fun and cannot wait to see what next week has in store. 

 

The weather on Thursday was lovely, but please check the weather every Thursday morning and supply waterproof or warmer clothing if necessary. 

 

Please note that our contact email is year1@keremschool.co.uk

 

At pick up time, children should be collected from the teacher. 

 

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to Yonat and her family. We hope that they will be very happy at Kerem.

 

Finally, we are looking forward to meeting with those of you who can attend the Meet the Teacher evening next Wednesday. 

 

Shabbat Shalom and have a lovely weekend,
