In this section of Porth's Class Page you will find information about the opportunities for Distance Learning that we are currently providing. If you require paper copies of any of documents, these will be available from the school office from Thursday morning (19th March). Messaging on Dojo in advance will help us to make sure we have these ready for you.
In addition, we will also be using our Google Classroom platform to provide activities for learning online. Please see instructions on how to log on below. Most children will log in using the details on the 'how to' guidance. We have also attached these into the front covers of exercise books when the children have been in school. If you are struggling to log on, please message me.
In addition to the learning posted please see some useful information and resources below and continue to...

Our topic this half term has been Houses and Homes. Ask a grown up to read the poem below to you. What do you notice? The poem is using our senses to describe our home. Talk with a grown up - can you create your own home poem using your senses?
My Home Poem:
I can smell the delicious crunchy toast sizzling in the toaster.
I can hear the sound of rain drops trickling down the windows.
I can taste the yummy scrumptious ice cream I had for dessert.
I can feel the warm radiator tickling my skin with it's heat.
I can see my family enjoying a cosy day in my home.
This is my home.
Have a look at the KIRF sheet below to see examples of learning that we have covered in Year 1 so far. Please look at Autumn 1 through to Spring 2 at this time. It gives good examples of maths learning which you could have a go at at home.
Practice counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, links to songs we use on YouTube to help us are on Google Classroom. Can you write these as calculations, e.g. 1x2=2 2x2=4
We have been learning all about materials, try and complete the materials worksheets which are in your distance learning packs. Go on a materials hunt and test materials to see why they are good for certain things. e.g. are they waterproof?
From 9am on Monday morning (23rd), Joe Wicks will be running a PE lesson on his Youtube channel everyday at the same time. If you want to check it out in the meantime, he already has lots of videos specifically for children on there too!
Other learning opportunity ideas:
In Year 1 we also suggest having some time to choose your own learning, the children are very good at this in school, they could choose to challenge themselves in any area of their learning, including reading, writing, maths, history, science or geography. It would be great to see photos of these challenges on ClassDojo.
If you require any more information or support about the information above, please message me on Dojo.
