Home learning:

As a school we are using the online learning platform called 'Seesaw'. You can access this by using the website https://web.seesaw.me/ 

or you can download the app from the app store.

 

 

Everyone has been given a log in. Your child's log in was sent via email. If you have any problems with this, please let me (Mrs Hopwood) know by emailing admin@wilfredowen.shropshire.sch.uk

Activities will be uploaded to seesaw for your child to complete every day. 

 

Here are some links you may find useful in addition to the activities on Seesaw;

 

  • https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ - as a school we follow the white rose maths scheme so I have included their website that has some free resources linked to numerous areas of maths, including some home learning videos.

Spellings.

Make sure that your child spell these words correctly in their writing and not just in a 'test'. (Many children will spell the word correctly in a test but spell it incorrectly when they are busy writing). Focus on 10 spellings at a time. Start with Phase 2 and end with Phase 5.

 

Once you child is spelling these in their writing move to the common exception words.

 

 

 

Letter formation.
