Class 1 – Home learning during school closures


Summer Term! 

I trust that you are all well and keeping safe at home.

Make sure you log in every week, to see what tasks you should be completing from home.

Don’t forget to send us pictures either via our school Twitter @Northcotesch or to myself at c.hartley@northcote.liverpool.sch.uk or Miss Turner at a.turner@northcote.liverpool.sch.uk

We are all missing seeing you everyday and can’t wait to see some of the fabulous learning you have been doing at home with your families!

We will be displaying the best examples of your work with next week’s learning, so remember to still use your nice neat writing and think about creative ways of showing your work! We are excited to see what you produce!


Summer 2 Week 4: 22nd June 2020


Keeping Fit – Northcote Sports Month!

Task: Northcote ‘Sports Month’ Fitness Challenge
During this time of the year, we should have been competing in our ‘Sports Day’. Rather than cancelling, we have decided to change our plans this year. Instead of a ‘Sports Day’ we are organising a ‘Sports Month’
For the next 4 weeks, we will be setting daily fitness challenges for you and your family to complete –  this will help us achieve the recommended 30 minutes of exercise each day
Each day you need to check the school’s Twitter account to see what the daily fitness challenge is. 
We want to see as many photos of you and your family completing all the fitness challenges as well as images of fitness record cards. (Remember when posting a photo on Twitter do not include your name).
DOWNLOAD YOUR FITNESS RECORD CARD: Sports Month Plan – Children’s record chart
If you are able to complete all of the week’s challenges you will receive a certificate. 
To be able to receive the certificate, you need to email an image of the fitness record card completed weekly to your class teacher. 
Good luck and let’s get fit! 



This week we are going to be learning about sun safety…



Task 1: Use the template below to create a sun safety poster. Write about the different ways you can stay safe in the sun! 



Task 2: Make a list of all the things you would pack inside your bag, if you were going for a day out to the beach on a hot summer’s day!


Challenge: Follow the link below to listen to Dodge and friends singing a sun safety song. Can you think of your own poem or song that will help others to stay safe in the sun?

This week we will be learning about 3D shapes.  


 This video provides a helpful guide to teach your child about 3D shapes. There are also some great ideas of fun and engaging activities you can play together.  


Activity 1: Look at some empty packages and boxes- can you identify what shape they are?

Activity 2: Using dough, can you make a sphere/ cylinder/ cube/ cuboid/ cone? 

Activity 3: Use some empty packages and boxes to make a model. Once your model is complete, talk about what 3D shapes you used. You could have a go at making a house, car, castle or robot.

Activity 4: Find items around the house to make your own bag of 3D shapes (e.g dice- cube, glue stick- cylinder, marble- sphere). Using only your hands, feel inside the bag and describe the shape- can you guess what shape it is? 

Activity 5: I spy with my little eye…. something that is a cylinder/ cube/ cone/ sphere/ cuboid.

Activity 6: Use the nets to make your own 3D aliens- Click Here.
