Task 1: I can use my senses to do tests.
Sight –What can you see? What are you using to see? Does your eye colour mean you can see any better or any less?
Hear – Close your eyes. Get an adult to play different types of sounds on youtube (jungle, sea, traffic etc) – what can you hear? What helps you to hear?
Taste – Taste a lemon/lime – what happens? What part of your mouth allows you to taste?
Smell – Close you eyes. Get an adult to give you things to smell and guess what they are.
Touch – Feely bag (guess the object inside the bag) Use your sense of touch to describe what you can feel and use adjectives to describe.

Phonics is the way we teach children to recognise the sounds in words. It helps your child to learn to read and is an essential part of your child’s education.
In school, we teach children to read through linking letters and sounds using a published programme called ‘Read Write Inc’ (RWI). During the summer term, there are a range of online resources you can use to support the teaching of phonics at home.
Your child can participate in daily lessons on the RWI YouTube site at home. You can access the lessons by clicking on the link below,
RWI Lesson Schedule
Our vulnerable pupils and children of key workers who are in school will have the chance to take part in a phonics session in school.
Unsure which lesson to participate in?
In Year 1, the children have been working through sets 2 and 3. In school, we send home books that support the sounds that the children are working on. Below we have matched the coloured books with each set, this indicates the live lesson that your child could join. In school, we regularly recap the sounds in the previous set so you may wish to revisit some of the earlier lessons especially if your child is finding the lesson a little tricky.
Additional Phonic Resources
All our Phonics sounds are in the video below:

In addition to the above, children will also learn a lot from the following ‘off-line’ activities:
The application tasks for writing and maths can be emailed to your child’s class teacher to their email address. Use year group number, Fielding class letter and 'C' for Canopus or 'S' for Sirius to contact them, for example:
Teachers will respond with feedback, replies may take up to 3 days.
Teachers will not respond during evenings, weekends, school holidays or when they are working in school.
Teachers will use any work your child emails to assess their learning for this term.
We would like to know what your child is working on at home, so if teachers do not receive an email from you or your child they may contact you.
Try watching a short French animation or video clip every day or play an on-line French game. There are so many engaging and carefully selected resources available on our school website which will help children to keep children tuned into their French learning. Tivi5 Monde is particularly popular and animations are updated daily. Click here for our French page.
Other popular resources include:
Have a go at the Fielding weekly Music challenge on the music page of the website. Click here.
In school we have been exploring the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how we can play our part as global citizens. Recently Earth School was launched which is a 30-day home-schooling journey to connect children and nature. https://ed.ted.com/earth-school
If you have enjoyed our SDG sessions in school, check out the daily quests – you can choose to watch the videos and have a go at the suggested quizzes and activities.
It is important to look after your physical and mental health during this difficult time and staying physically active is a great way of doing that. Although many of us are practising social distancing and staying at home more than we may do normally, there are still lots of things you can do at home to keep your physical activity levels up. Below are two very good resources to get you started. Please let Mr Thomas know via email if you have any questions or suggestions.
For the coming months, we are also going to change the criteria for our Fielding Sporting Stars page on the website. We want to see videos or photos of what you are doing at home in order to stay active. It could be taking part in one of the ideas below, doing some cosmic yoga or a fitness video online or absolutely anything else. https://www.fieldingprimary.com/fielding-sporting-stars/
Stay active and stay healthy.
