Topic

Activity

Monday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’.

Look at the attached PowerPoint presentation About igloos and read it with an adult. Answer the following questions (discuss your answers with your adult, and write some answers if you can!)

  1. Which people make igloos?
  2. How are igloos built?
  3. What foods do Inuit people cook over the fire?
  4. What else have you learnt?

 

Tuesday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’.

Instruction writing.

Last term, we learnt all about instruction writing when we made jam sandwiches. Can you write some simple instructions for making an igloo? (There are clues in the Powerpoint). Remember to use time words such as first, then, next, last. Every instruction must on a new line. Remember to keep your sentences short and bossy!

Wednesday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’.

Creative writing.

 Today we are going to start some story writing. Who will your story be about? We are going to think about a main character who is an Inuit boy or girl, who lives in an igloo.

Draw your character. Think of a name for them. Can you write three sentences about your character? Your sentences might include how old they are, what they like doing, things they are good at, who is in their family etc.

Thursday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’.

Over the next two days, write a story about your character. You may choose to write your story like a comic strip with lots of pictures and captions, or you might write the whole thing in sentences. What makes your story exciting? Does your character meet a polar bear, seal or narwhal? Do they go on an exciting husky ride or fishing trip? Perhaps it’s a day of fun playing in the snow. We can’t wait to hear your ideas!

Friday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’.

Complete your story writing and draw a picture to go with it.

 

D.T.:   If you have started a papier mache igloo continue working on it, otherwise why not give it a try? We’re looking forward to seeing more photos of your igloos this week. If you made one last week using Lego, playdough or cake, why not try a different medium? Can you make a little scene with an Inuit family to live in your igloo?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-x5QOSqP3E  (3 mins) or http://www.nfb.ca/film/how_to_build_an_igloo/ (10mins)

Science: Last week you made a weather chart or diary for the weather at home. What is the weather like in the Arctic? Have a look at a weather forecast website each day and complete a weather chart or diary for the Arctic this week. What’s the same and what’s different compared to the weather in England?

P.E. Complete one of the Joe Wicks workouts either Monday, Wednesday or Friday at 9am.

RE: Special people We all have special people in our lives. Can you think of who is special in your life? Read this story with an adult.

Joe’s story: Grandma’s special people.

Every Sunday, we go to Grandad and Grandma’s with our Mum for dinner.  Tim and I love going there.  Grandad and Grandma let us play upstairs.  We think it is a very special place. Grandma knows how much we like to look at all the photographs on the stairs, on the landing and in the bedrooms.  There are so many of them.  Tim and I make up games to play.  We count them, try to spot the new ones and see if we can remember who all the people in the photographs are.  Grandma says, “These are all my special people, they are our family.   You are there, as well as your Mum, Uncle Brian and cousins.”

Tim and I are glad we’re Grandma’s special people.  She is one of our special people, too.  Some of the photographs are of people we don’t really know.  There is one of Monica, Grandma’s best friend, who lives in the next road.  They go shopping together every week.  Another is of Sally, the district nurse, who helped to look after Grandad when he was very ill last year.

Tim’s favourite photograph is the one of Grandma and Grandad with all their friends and neighbours.  It was taken at the community centre last year at a party.  Grandma has so many photographs because she has many special friends.  I couldn’t tell you about them all today as it would take too long.  Perhaps you could think of people who are special to you.

  1. Who are special people in your lives?
  2. Are there special people in our school community?
  3. Do you know any other special people?
  • Draw pictures of the special people in your life and add key words which express the special things people offer us: e.g. care, time, love, friendship.

Topic

Activity

Monday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

On Friday last week, you started planning a letter to Apac, the boy who lives in the Arctic. You drew a picture of yourself and jotted down some facts about yourself. Here is the link to the video in case you want to watch it again.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYK8ERKPnNM

 

Today we want you to think about the place where you live, it is very different to the Arctic and Apac would really like to hear about it! Your task is to go out for a walk and make a list of things you see in your area that would be interesting for Apac. You might do this in your topic book, or do it on paper and stick it in. Here are some things you might include:

A pebble beach

Grassy park

Concrete pavement

How many things can you write on your list? If you unable to go out, have a think and see how many things you can remember.

Use your phonics to spell words you don’t know.

 

Tuesday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

Have a look at the list you wrote yesterday and read it to a grown-up. Today your task is to choose three of the things and write a sentence for each one in your topic book. Try to use some describing words (adjectives). Here is an example:

 

I live in a brick house with a red door.

 

The pebble beach is a good place to ride my bike.

 

You can play football in the grassy park.

 

Wednesday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

 Today we are going to start writing our letters. You can choose to do this in your topic book, or you might have some nice writing paper you’d like to use.

 

When we write letters, we always put our address at the top so the person we are writing to knows who it is from and can write back.

Write your own address at the top of the letter, the date, and then write ‘Dear Apac’.

 

Draw a picture of yourself with your family by your home.

 

Thursday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

Now it’s time to tell Apac some things about yourself. Use the ideas you have planned already. Here is an example:

Dear Apac,

Hello, my name is _________ and I am six years old. I have a brother and sister and my dog is called Floppy. I like taking him for walks in the rain and getting all muddy.

Can you write three sentences? Remember to say them out loud before you write them down. Perhaps you can write more than three…

 

Friday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

Let’s finish your letter today. Now you need to tell Apac about the place you live. Can you use one of the sentences you wrote on Tuesday? Can you think of some new sentences? Can you think of a question you’d like to ask Apac? Here’s an example:

 

I live in England in a town next to the sea. There is a pebble beach where I have picnics in the summer. There is also a long canal with ducks and white swans. What animals do you see where you live?

From __________

 

 

D.T.: It is interesting to see how and igloo is constructed. Have a look at one or both of these clips. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-x5QOSqP3E  (3 mins) or http://www.nfb.ca/film/how_to_build_an_igloo/ (10mins)

Can you make a model of an igloo? You could use junk modelling, Lego, playdough or clay – whatever you have at home (fingers crossed it snows and you can do it in the garden!) Perhaps you use bedding and blankets to make an igloo style camp!

Geography: Look at Google Earth and find the Arctic. Look at where it is in comparison to England. Can you find any of the other continents you learnt about last week? Here is a song to help you learn the names of the continents!

Seven Continents Song (Oceania Version) - YouTube

Science: Linking to our Geography, make a weather chart or diary. Can you record the temperature each day and what the weather is like? Next week you will be making a weather diary for the Arctic so that you can compare!

Phonics:

This week we are going to crack on with learning phase 5a.

Use the website ‘phonic play’ to access games and activities to support phonic learning. The username is caritas and the password is caritas.

Key words for your information:

Phoneme - The smallest unit of sound. There are approximately 44 phonemes in English (it depends on different accents). Phonemes can be put together to make words.

Grapheme - A way of writing down a phoneme. Graphemes can be made up from 1 letter e.g. p, 2 letters e.g. sh, 3 letters e.g. tch or 4 letters e.g ough

Digraph - A grapheme containing two letters that makes just one sound (phoneme).

Trigraph - A grapheme containing three letters that makes just one sound (phoneme)

Oral Blending - This involves hearing phonemes and being able to merge them together to make a word. Children need to develop this skill before they will be able to blend written words.

Blending- This involves looking at a written word, looking at each grapheme and using knowledge of GPCs to work out which phoneme each grapheme represents and then merging these phonemes together to make a word. This is the basis of reading

Oral Segmenting - This is the act hearing a whole word and then splitting it up into the phonemes that make it. Children need to develop this skill before they will be able to segment words to spell them.

Segmenting - This involves hearing a word, splitting it up into the phonemes that make it, using knowledge of GPCs to work out which graphemes represent those phonemes and then writing those graphemes down in the right order. This is the basis of spelling.

The shenanigans of the Elf!

It's that time of year... The class elf has arrived in school! We will be using his arrival as inspiration for our writing. Depending on the child, they will write one or more sentences about what the elf has done, with a focus on sounding out unknown words using phonics, starting with a capital letter and ending with a full stop (or even an exclamation mark if it's exciting!) Please write about your elf at home (if you have one) or something you are excited about Christmas.

Make notes – how are birthdays celebrated in the same way? How are they different?

ICT – Log on to your dB primary login and follow the pathway assigned to year 1 all about programming. Play the games and progress each time. Have fun!

PE There are many activities you could have a go at on youtube. Why not experience some yoga? Follow the link - Sonic The Hedgehog | A Cosmic Kids Yoga Adventure! - Bing video

RE – We will be learning about the Advent wreath and the meaning behind it. Can you do some research online? How does the Advent wreath help us to wait for Advent? How many candles are there and why? What does the lighted candle remind us of? https://www.comeandseere.co.uk/activities/interactive-iwb-activities Can you create your own wreath following the link?

Art - We have ordered various craft activity packs to enjoy making in the run up to Christmas. If your child misses out on any of these sessions, we will save their kits for them to complete at home at a later date. But there are lots of lovely ideas of things to make on the internet. Perhaps you could draw a Christmas scene and decorate it?

This afternoon we will be writing the insides of our Christmas cards (we made them last week). At home, why not make a Christmas card for a neighbour or relative, write a little message inside and put it in the post!

RE – We are starting a new unit all about Advent. What is Advent?

Advent is a time when we appreciate the love in our lives and prepare to celebrate love becoming a reality in the person of Jesus Christ. We, as Christians, celebrate the gift of Jesus. Advent is a build up to the giving of love through Christ. People had to wait to receive his presence. It wasn’t given straight away. How does it feel to wait? Can you think of a time when you had to wait? E.g. waiting for your birthday? Waiting for Christmas? Draw a picture of yourself waiting for an event and underneath write ‘I am waiting for… I feel …’

IcT – Practise recognising the position of letters on the keyboard. Can you type your full name and use capital letters appropriately? https://toybox.tools.bbc.co.uk/activities/id/activity-dance-mat-typing/exitGameUrl/http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.co.uk%2Fguides%2Fz3c6tfr

PE - Try and get outside if you have a garden. If it is rainy why not ask your family to put on an exercise video that you can enjoy. The Joe Wicks ones are still on You Tube or maybe try Just Dance or similar.

Design Technology- Outdoor learning - using materials from your garden, can you go on a sensory hunt to find different objects with different textures? E.g. a spiky leaf, a smooth leaf, a rough piece of bark etc.  Record what you find and how it feels.

Art- we will be looking at the painting 'Gateway to Cornwall' by John Dyer and talking about what we can see in this 'celebration painting' - can you guess what the celebration might be? (Bonfire night or New Year's Eve). What do you like/dislike about the painting? What do you think of the colours? In class we will be creating firework pictures using pastels and glitter on black paper and saving them to include in a class collage next week. Why not create your own firework picture at home using whatever art supplies you have!

Maths Activity

This week we will be focussing on telling the time using an analogue clock.

 

Telling time to the hour day 1

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/time/teaching-clock

Using the interactive clock, discuss a clock face. Introduce them to the hands. What is the same about each hand? What is different? Set the time to an o’clock time and discuss that when the minute hand (longer hand) is pointing upwards to the number 12 it is an o’clock time. They need to understand that they need to look at the hour hand (smaller hand) to see which hour it is. Do this with different o’clock times.

 

Telling time to the hour day 2

Use the interactive clock as support if needed. Then complete the attached document named ‘Time to the hour’.

 

Telling time to half hour day 1

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/time/teaching-clock

Using the interactive clock, introduce them to telling the time to the half hour and learn the language ‘half past’.On the interactive clock show the minute hand move from the o’clock and travel half way around the clock from the 12 to the 6. Show different half past times and talk through what each time is.

 

Telling time to half hour day 2

Use the interactive clock as support if needed. Then complete the attached document named ‘Time to half hour’.

Can you create yourself as a skeleton using materials you find outdoors or in the house?

 

Tiny Beastie Tally Trail

There are tiny critters everywhere! Next time you go for a walk, take a notebook and a pencil and keep a tally mark record of all the creatures you spot. Ants, bees, beetles, flies. Look closely under the leaves of any plants – you might see a caterpillar!

 

Tweet Treats

To help find out what birds visit your garden, provide some bird food. It will encourage those birds to stay and more to visit. You can buy bird feeders from the shops, but why not make your own? All you need is some bird seed, some lard, pipe cleaners or string – or make one from pine cones!

 

Instructions to make your own bird feed:

  • Mix a handful of bird seed with a handful of lard.
  • Shape it into a ball or other shape and use a pipe cleaner or string to hang the feeder up.
  • Alternatively push the mix into a pinecone.
  • Try to hang the feeders out of reach of cats!

Rainbow Animal Story

Choose another rainbow animal and write a story about them. What might happen to them?

 

Adjectives

Think of different adjectives to describe all sorts of different sea creatures. Use these adjectives to create poems. You could do acrostic poems.

E.g.

Sharp pointed teeth

Happy grin to lure you in
Angry snap of the jaws
Really dark eyes
Killer personality

Maths Activity

This week we are focusing on fractions, specifically half and quarter.

 

Finding half

Explore finding a half for the first time using shapes and sets of objects. Use the vocabulary ‘half’ and ‘whole’. If possible, use real life objects and show how they can be cut in half. An adult should then draw simple shapes and get your child to split the shapes in half.

 

Finding half of quantities

Children use their understanding of finding half of an object or shape and apply this to finding half of a small quantity. It is important that children find the total amount and can then show how this number can be shared equally into two. The use of small objects such as counters can help children to find a half. You may find the attached halving mat useful.

 

Finding half computer game

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Follow the link to play the game. Click on ‘Halves’ and start with halves to 10 at the top then progress to finding halves from 5 to 15., find different halves.

 

Exploring quarters

Explore quarters for the first time. Develop their understanding of equal parts and non-equal parts and relate this to a shape or object being split up into four equal parts.

Take two square pieces of paper, two circular pieces of paper and two rectangular pieces of paper.

Model folding one of each into four equal parts and the other into four non-equal parts.

  • Which shapes show equal parts? Which do not?
  • How many equal parts can we see?
  • Can we fold any of the shapes in a different way and still get equal parts?
  • Count the equal parts and then model counting them in quarters.
  • Colour a quarter of each shape. Can you colour it in different ways?

 

Finding a quarter of a quantity

Find a quarter of a small quantity through equal sharing. It is important they can show the groups clearly by drawing around quantities or by physically sharing into something.

Use small objects at home to investigate these questions.

  • Choose a number of sweets and work out how many you have (must be a multiple of 4). How can I share them equally into four groups? What is one quarter worth?
  • Use a range of containers and rice/water. Can you show me a quarter full in each container? Do they look the same or different?
  • If I have 2, and it is a quarter, what will the whole look like? What will the whole be worth?
  •  

 

Disney wake up shake up

https://www.nhs.uk/10-minute-shake-up/shake-ups

10 minute activities based on Disney films that count towards a child’s 60 active minutes per day.

 

Prized Possessions

The Rainbow Fish gave away his most prized possession, his scales. What is your most prized possession? Draw a picture of it and write a sentence to say why it is special.

 

Rainbow Animal

Make a different rainbow animal. It can be any animal you like. You could colour it in, paint it or even make a collage.

  

Being a Good Friend

The Rainbow Fish learnt to be a good friend. Talk to an adult about the different ways to be a good friend.

Story time

Please listen to “I don’t want to wash my hands” read by Tony Ross. Discuss with your family what this story is about and why it is important.

  •  

 

Phonics

Revisit and revise any sounds you are not sure on. If you are confident with all the sounds then see the attached document to find the first 100 high frequency words. Pick a few words per day and see if you can read and spell these key words.

 

English Activity

This week we will be focusing on instruction writing.

 

Verbs – let’s do them!

Introduce the term ‘verbs’ and explain that a verb is a ‘doing word’. Explain how if you say a doing word on its own it sounds bossy. Instructions always sound bossy because they use bossy words, but we don’t have to use a bossy voice! On your daily walk or in your garden, say different verbs to each other and you have to do them, e.g. Run to the flowers, hop on the spot etc.

 

Write the verbs

Recap the term ‘verbs’ and explain that a verb is a ‘doing word’. Explain how if you say a doing word on its own it sounds bossy. Give your child some instructions and stress the verb. E.g. Put hands on heads, rub hands together, pat your stomach, stand up on the spot, turn around etc. Then write your own instructions. When you’re done, read them to someone else and they have to do what you say! EXT: Can you underline the verbs in your sentences

 

Washing our hands

Recap or watch “I don’t want to wash my hands” read by Tony Ross (Link in story time section).

Write/Draw instructions to wash your hands. Please see the attached writing frame you can write on or use for ideas.

 

Blowing your nose

Talk about what to do when you need to blow your nose. See the attached writing frame and write a sentence about each of the pictures to create instructions for how to blow your nose. Remember your bossy verbs! You can write straight into your book if you don’t have a printer.

 

In the morning

What do we do when we get up in the morning/before going to school?

Think of a set of instructions using bossy verbs for getting up in the morning. E.g. Brush your teeth, put your clothes on etc. You may like to write sentences in comic strip with a picture for each of your instructions.

 

Maths Activity

This week we are continuing with our number work to 100.

 

Make a number

Using digit cards or create your own by writing 0 – 9 on individual pieces of paper. Then create different numbers, e.g. Make a number greater than 25, make a number less than 72, make a number between 32 – 67 etc.

 

Number card problem

Use your home made digit cards to answer this problem.

Miss Cox has the number cards 1, 2 and 4. Mrs Bowman has the number cards. 3, 5 and 6.

They both use two of their cards to make two-digit numbers. Miss Cox’s number is bigger than Mrs Bowman’s number. What could their numbers be? How many answers can you find?

Can you create your own problem?

 

Numbers to 100 worksheet

Please see the attached document, you don’t have to print, you can answer into your books. There are 3 levels, choose the most appropriate for your child.

 

Number questions

Create your own number lines to answer the questions below:

  • I am counting back from 17, will I say 20?
  • I am counting forward from 39, will I say 50?
  • I am counting back from 27, will I say 19?
  • I am counting back from 99, will I say 100?

Challenge questions:

  • I write a two-digit number. I use the same digit twice. What might my number be?
  • I write a two-digit number. I use a 3 in the ones column. What might my number be?
  •  I write a two-digit number. I use a 7 in the tens column. What might my number be?

Can you think of your own questions?

 

 

Problem solving

Using resources from home, answer the problems. You can take pictures of your answers instead of writing them down.

  1. Mo creates a traffic jam using some toy cars on the carpet.

The red car is 3rd from the front.

It is also the 2nd from the back.

Use some cars or manipulatives to find out how many cars are in the traffic jam.

 

  1. Always, Sometimes or Never True?

When finding 1 less than a number, the tens digit of the number stays the same.

 

  1. Noah watched the animals going into the ark. He was counting and by noon he got to 12, but he was only counting the legs of the animals.

How many creatures did he see? See if you can find other answers?

Joy of Moving

Be part of the Joy of Moving Festival! The EFl Trust, the people in charge of the football league, have created a festival of games, activities and challenges to complete at home by yourself or with your family. The attached booklet below has all the information and activities to complete across a range of sporting skills.

 

The world outside my window

Museums and galleries are closed, so why not create your own exhibition or gallery of artworks inspired by you! What would you like people to know about you? What are the important things in your home that are close to your heart? Who might you paint a picture of? Toys, special outfits, holiday souvenirs and much-loved teddy bears are some of the many things you might wish to include as objects are artworks.

 

Grass Hopper Music

Watch the video below about rhythm and repetition. Begin my matching the sounds to the pictures. Then find objects at home that make different sounds and create your own insect music. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01d6rx8

  

Build a Shelter

Find a space outdoors/indoors where you can design and build a den. Set criteria, for example, it needs an entrance, windows, a chimney. If you’re lucky enough to go outside is it waterproof?

 

Well- being  jar

Listen to the song using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71hqRT9U0wg

How does this make you feel? Happy I hope!  As we are all living through a very strange time and things are difficult and different, I thought it would be nice if you could create a well-being jar. Please follow the instructions in the document below to help you to do this.

Phonics

Please see the attached PowerPoint to find 5 slides with 5 different activities to do each day.

 

English Activity

Rhyming words

Listen and join in with the Super Movers rhyming video by following the link below:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-english-rhyme-with-radzi/zvbm47h

Then see the attached document to find a selection of rhyming cards. There are 3 levels, pick the one most suited for your child. You do not have to print the cards off but looking at the cards, match the rhyming words together and write them in your book. Challenge: Can you think of anymore words that rhyme?

 

Rhyming sentences

Listen and join in to the Super Movers video again. Then create your own rhyming sentences. You can use the attached rhyming cards as support or you can create your own rhyming sentences. E.g. The cat sat on the mat. 

 

Rhyming Games

Play some rhyming games together. You can pick from the ones below or play your own games.

  1. Round Robin

Imagine you are going on a trip. Say one item you are taking with you on the trip, e.g. “I’m going to the beach and I’m taking a hat.” The next person to repeat the sentence and add on a rhyming item they want to take, e.g. “I’m going to the beach and I’m taking a hat and a mat”. The sillier the rhymes get, the better!

  1. Rhyming Hopscotch

Use chalk to draw a hopscotch grid or map one out with tape. Decide on a word at the beginning of the hopscotch, e.g. dog. Then as you hop down the hopscotch call out different words that rhyme with the word you picked. Can you make it to the end of your hopscotch? Try with a new word and see if you can get even further.

 

‘Stop telling fibs!’ Day 1

Read the attached ‘Stop telling fibs’ eBook together. Notice the rhyming words. Then look at the pictures at the end of the book (when Mum enters the room). Go through the different animals and how they rhyme. Notice the other animals that weren’t in the story: Fox in socks, chimpanzees in dungarees, a bat in a hat, a yak in a mac. Choose one of these animals and in the same style of the story, write how the animal ends up there. E.g. “Put on your socks,” said Mum. “I can’t put on my socks, there’s a fox in my socks!” said Tomek. Do not worry about speech marks; they are a Year 2 expectation.

 

‘Stop telling fibs!’ Day 2

Read the eBook again to remind them of the story. Pause on the last pictures of the story, when Mum enters Tomek’s room. What do you think happened next in Tomek’s house? Write your own story about what each of the animals did when they were discovered, how Tomek reacted and what his mum thought.

Maths Activity

This week the maths focus is on numbers to 100.

 

Counting to 100

Use a 100 square or the online 100 square: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/paint-the-squares

Warm up by finding different numbers, if you need more of a challenge try counting forwards from 80 to 92, count backwards from 73 to 65, write down the numbers between 75 and 81, find what number comes between 46 and 48 etc. Then see the attached document labelled ‘counting to 100’. Complete the sheet.

 

100 square

Use a 100 square or the online 100 square: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/paint-the-squares

Warm up like yesterday by finding different numbers or counting. Then see the attached document labelled ‘100 squares’. There are 3 levels, you do not have to do them all, pick the one that is most suited to your child. They need to find these numbers on the hundred square and fill in the missing numbers on their sheet. They can colour this section in on a hundred square to help them if they are struggling. If you don’t have a printer, you can draw the missing number grids for your child.

 

Ordering numbers to 100

Order different numbers from 0 – 100. Start with multiples of 10, if this isn’t challenging, move on to other numbers, e.g 43, 91, 12, 22. An adult could write numbers from 0 - 100 onto small pieces of paper. Then put them in the right order from the smallest to the biggest. Repeat with different numbers. Can they create their own number line?

 

 

Partitioning numbers

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-digits-&-numbers-with-marlon-wallen/zfyjbdm

Listen to the Super Movers song and singalong to the digit dance! Talk about how 2 digit numbers are made. Complete the worksheet called partitioning, to show how numbers are made.

 

Number bonds to 100

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-number-bonds-with-martin-dougan/zf6cpg8

Start with recapping number bonds to 10 by listening to the Super Movers song. Make sure they are secure in number bonds to 10 before moving to number bonds to 100. E.g. 8 + 2 = 10 so 80 + 20 = 100.

Let’s Dance!

https://youtu.be/Z7vcAaAzEHw

Using the song from the Disney film Decedents 3, have a dance along with this daughter and Mum duo. Why don’t you pick your own song and create your own dance!

 

My Home – My Museum

https://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/my-home-my-museum

Museums and galleries are closed, so why not create your own exhibition or gallery of artworks inspired by you! What would you like people to know about you? What are the important things in your home that are close to your heart? Who might you paint a picture of? Toys, special outfits, holiday souvenirs and much-loved teddy bears are some of the many things you might wish to include as objects are artworks.

 

Kitchen Music

You don’t need an instrument when you can find one in the kitchen! Learn to play kitchen instruments with Myleene Klass. Watch and join in with the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA2Z-GVNdxo

 

Leaves/Flower Crowns

Become the King or Queen of your daily walk by hunting for brightly coloured leaves or flowers. Collect as many as you can and take them home to make your very own leafy flower crown. To make your crown, choose a band of card that’s long enough to go round your head. Then carefully stick on the nature gems you have found!

 

Write a prayer for the NHS

We all know how hard the NHS has been working for our country. You may have shown your appreciation for them by clapping on a Thursday night. This week, write a thank you prayer which you could say with your family.

Home Reading each day

(At least 20mins)

You could use Oxford Owls if you run out of books!

Oxford Owl for Home
https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/

 

Phonics

This week we are focusing on real words and nonsense words. Please see the attached PowerPoint to find 5 slides with 5 different activities to do each day. You must play the slideshow from the beginning in order to ‘pop’ the balloons.

 

English Activity

This week you might like to try and create a pet shop in your home! You could choose some of your furry toys from around your house to play a part!

 

Fact File

Choose one of your furry toys who will be up for sale in your pet shop. Write a fact file for them which will give potential owners key information about the animal. E.g. what type of animal they are (fish, mammal etc.), what type of eater (herbivore, carnivore etc.), what food they like to eat, what they like to live/sleep in and so on. Depending on time, you might like to do this for more than one animal.

 

Opening and closing times

Create a poster with the days of the week and decide what time you would like to open and close your shop each day. Are there any days that you will stay closed?

 

Role Play

Get someone to come along to your shop and ask you questions about your animals. Can you persuade them to buy a new pet? Can you answer the questions they ask? Have fun in your shop!

 

Funny Bones Pet Shop

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cfpk8QEhK1c

Watch the link about the Funny Bones pet shop. If you were going to the pet shop and could pick a new pet, what pet would you choose and why? You might like to draw a picture of your new pet.

 

Funny Bones Pet Shop 2

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cfpk8QEhK1c

Watch the link again about the Funny Bones pet shop. What other pet could the Big Skeleton and Little Skeleton buy in the pet shop? Think of a different animal that wasn’t mentioned in the video. What happens when they buy this animal? Do they love it or do they have to send it back to the shop?

 

 

 

Maths Activity

This week the maths focus is on money! You will either need to use real coins or print of the attached document.

 

Coins and notes

Use fake coins or real coins and talk about what they are worth. Do they recognise any? What is the value of the coins? Repeat this with different notes.

Then either draw around the coins or cut and stick the fake coins into your books to create a list of their value.

 

Pet Shop

Work out prices for the animals in your shop. If you can use coins to show the value, if not you could put the right amount of cubes or small objects by each of the animals. How much do 2 of the animals cost together? What about 3? An adult could come along with different amounts of money, can they afford a pet?

 

  •  

Use or draw coins to show the following amounts:

  1. 10p in 5p coins
  2. 50p in 5p coins
  3. 50p in 10p coins
  4. 40p in 5p coins
  5. Can you find anymore?

 

How many?

Put a selection of mixed coins on the table (make sure there are multiples of the same coin). Get your child to find all the 1ps and work out how many there are. Then the 2ps and repeat for the coins you have available.

 

Problem Solving

Use coins to  work out the answers to these questions:

  1. I have more than 2 pence, but less than 1 pound. What coin could I have?

 

  1. Miss Cox has nine 2p coins. Mrs Bowman has three silver coins. Mrs Bowman thinks she must have the most money because she has the most coins. Is she right?

 

  1. Alex has 2 silver coins, Teddy has 5 bronze coins and Rosie has 1 silver coin. They all have the same amount of money. What coins do they each have?
  •  

 

Bucket golf

This game combines underarm throwing with the rules of golf.  To play, you will need rolled up socks or soft foam balls, buckets or cardboard boxes.

Start by setting up a miniature golf course, with a bucket or cardboard box for the hole.  Ideally, you should have at least 5 holes in your miniature golf course. Start at the first tee and attempt to throw your ball into the bucket with as few throws as possible.  You can keep track of the scores on a piece of paper.  You can vary the length of the holes to make the course more challenging if your child is an accurate thrower.

 

Kitchen Music

You don’t need an instrument when you can find one in the kitchen! Learn to play kitchen instruments with Myleene Klass. Watch and join in with the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA2Z-GVNdxo

 

Animal Sculptures

Using playdough and/or a collection of sticks, stones and outdoor materials, create an animal sculpture of your choice. If you don’t have any materials take a bag on your daily walk and collect as many outdoor objects as you think you may need. If you don’t have any playdough you could use blue tack or glue to help your sticks stay together.

 

Mini-beast Hunt

Go on a mini-beast hunt in your garden or on your daily walk. Can you find a bumblebee looking for nectar? A spotty ladybird exploring the grass? A slimy snail in a damp dark spot? A butterfly basking in the sunshine? What else can you see; you might like to take a photo of some of the creatures you find!

 
WEEK 2 - Phonics
 
WEEK 2 - Coins

Dear Year 1 parents and children,

TERM 6 - WEEK 1 - 1st-5th June 2020

I hope you all had a relaxing half term, a well-deserved rest for everyone at home!

You may notice that box D is no longer the home project but is a selection of activities from other areas of the curriculum, e.g. PE, Art, RE etc. These are not compulsory but are there to give you other ideas if you need it.

Like usual, the table below has some suggested activities you might like to complete at home. All these activities can be done in any order and at any time that suits you. If you have other ideas that you would like to pursue, feel free to experiment and adjust as you like. Please remember, this is only guidance. On some days you will not be able to do it all and that is ok. You can only do your best. 

Miss Cox

Home Reading each day

(At least 20mins)

Phonics

Throughout the week your child is going to be looking for different sounds around them. Pick the most appropriate level from the attached documents below. There are 3 different levels. Level 1 and 2 use phase 3 sounds and level 3 uses phase 5 sounds. Pick the most appropriate level depending on your child’s sound knowledge. Once they have selected their sound sheet they will look around their house/garden to find different objects that have those sounds. E.g. if they are looking for the sound ‘ar’, they might find a car, star or garden.  Once they have found a word they cut and stick the sound into their book, write the word they have found next to it and draw a picture of the word they have found. Challenge: Can they write a sentence with this word?

 

They might not be able to find every single sound on each level and that is ok. If they finish one level before the end of the week, they can start another one.

English Activity

 

This week your child will be creating a Non-Fiction book about 5 of the animal groups (fish, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and birds).

 

They should pick a different animal group for each day.  So your week might look like this:

Monday – Fish

Tuesday – Reptiles

Wednesday – Amphibians

Thursday – Mammals

Friday – Birds

 

You could begin each session by clicking the link below to watch a video on their chosen animal group:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv 

 

If they would like to find out even more information, they can use Non-Fiction books or the internet, with appropriate adult supervision.

 

If you’re stuck, think about the following questions for each group of animals:

  • Where do they live? (land or water)
  • How many legs do they have?
  • What is their skin like?
  • What is special about these types of animal?
  • Can you name any animals from this group?

 

They should collect their information each day onto an A4 page. At the end of the week they can add page numbers, a contents page and a front cover to complete their Non-Fiction book on the different Animal Types.

 

 

Maths Activity

This week the maths focus is to use the vocabulary  ‘left’, ‘right’, ‘forwards’ and ‘backwards’ to describe position and direction.

 

 

Route making

Use cones or objects to mark out a route for a family member. Describe the route your partner needs to take using the words ‘left’, ‘right’, ‘forwards’ and ‘backwards’.  Swap goes, can you make even trickier routes?

 

 

Directional Drawing

An adult will be needed to say a clear instruction. The child listens and does as the instruction says to create a drawing. E.g.

  • “Draw a circle in the middle and colour it blue. 
  • Draw a circle on its right and colour it red.
  • The shape up from the red circle is a green rectangle… etc.”

Then swap over, are they able to give clear instructions using the appropriate language.

 

 

Complete the sentences

Use objects in your house or outside area to complete the sentences. 

  • The _____ is above ______.
  • The _____ is below ______.
  • Above ____ is ___ and ___.
  • In between _____ and ______ is ________.
  • There is nothing between ________ and ________.

 

 

What can you see?

Think about where you are sitting. What can you see around you?

Write a list of the things you can see:

  • In front of you
  • Behind you
  • To the left of you
  • To the right of you

 

 

Worksheet: Position & Direction

Have a look at the attached document. You do not need to print this off. Answer the questions in your book.

 

Topic Ideas:

 

Sock vs Target

You will need a rolled-up sock (easy to handle, unlikely to break anything and won’t roll far after being thrown) and a cardboard target for your child to attempt to knock over.  Throw the sock at the target to knock it over, take a step back each time it falls over. Then try again with your other hand, can you think of any other ways to throw the sock and hit the target?

 

Nick Cope – Sing along

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p089gh8c/nick-copes-popcast-series-1-3-take-a-walk

Have a listen to Nick Cope’s podcast on CBeebies. He sings about walking in the countryside. Have a listen and singalong. Why not change the words and create your own song!

 

Pentecost

Please see the attached PowerPoint to find the story of Pentecost. Pentecost is celebrated on the 7th Sunday after Easter, this year it would have been 31st May. Read through this together and then choose one or two of the suggested activities to complete. You do not have to do them all.

 

Animal Puppets

Using the resources you have at home, create different animal puppets! You could draw on old socks, use paper and sticks or make finger puppets out of an old glove.

 

Sikhism

Under normal circumstances, this week we would have been having a Sikhism week in school. Please see the attached document and choose one of the suggested activities to complete. You do not have to do them all.

Dear Year 1 Parents and children

Week 5 - 18th May – 22nd May 2020

Thank you to all those who have sent pictures to ‘2Simple’. I am really enjoying seeing all brilliant learning you have been doing and all the fun as well… Marshmallow claps for everyone (even parents!)

Like usual, the table below has some suggested activities you might like to complete at home. All of these activities can be done in any order and at any time that suits you. If you have other ideas that you would like to pursue, feel free to experiment and adjust as you like. Please remember, this is only guidance. On some days you won’t be able to do it all and that is ok. You can only do your best. 

As always, Times Table Rock Stars (https://ttrockstars.com/) is used as an additional challenge. This is not going to be appropriate for every child due to the timed conditions. Do not panic or worry if your child is not ready yet, they will be introduced to this more in Year 2. However, if you have been able to have a go and would like additional tables added, please let me know and I can do so.

This week, see if you can help an adult at home like they’ve been helping you. Maybe you can help hang the washing out, load the dishwasher or even lay the table.

I shall hopefully see you all very soon,

Miss Cox

This week you need a piece of A4 paper and to pick an animal that interests you. Ask an adult to fold the paper to form a leaflet. You could fold it twice to get 6 different sides. Over the week you will be designing, creating and writing your very own Non-Fiction leaflet about your chosen animal. Can you remember what Non-Fiction means?

 

Collecting Information (2 days)

Using books or the internet, collect some facts about your chosen animal. Write these down into your book or a rough piece of paper. See if you can find a different fact for each different side of your leaflet. E.g. One side could be about food and another about where the animal comes from. Remember to leave a side for your front cover!

 

Neat writing

Once you have collected all your facts for your leaflet you need to copy them out in your neatest handwriting. Remember your capital letters, finger spacing and full stops. An adult might like to draw some lines for you to write on.

 

Drawing

Using books or the internet, see if you can add some drawings to your leaflet.

 

Front cover

Every Non-Fiction leaflet needs a front cover. See if you can include a title for your leaflet, a drawing of your chosen animal and your name. 

Maths Activity

This week the maths focus is on turns using the language ‘full’, ‘half’, ‘quarter’ and ‘three quarter’.

 

Simon Says

Use the language ‘full’, ‘half’, ‘quarter’ and ‘three quarter’ to describe turns. Children should practically turn objects in different directions. You could investigate whether they can finish facing the same direction if they complete different turns. Then play a game of ‘Simon says’ and give the children instructions using the language ‘quarter turn’, ‘half turn’, ‘three quarters turn’ and ‘full turn’.

 

Draw and turn

Draw a triangle in your book. Now turn your book different turns (‘full’, ‘half’, ‘quarter’ and ‘three quarter’), what does the triangle look like now?

Draw a triangle after a full turn, half turn, quarter turn and a three quarter turn.

If you have time, try with a different shape, maybe a rectangle or a smiley face?

 

Draw and match

Draw a shape of your choice. Then draw what the shape would look like after the following statements:

 

  1. The shape has made a quarter turn.
  2. The shape has made a half turn.
  3. The shape has made a three-quarter turn.

 

Worksheet – Turns

Have a look at the attached document. You do not need to print this off. Answer the questions in your book by drawing the new shapes after each turn.

 

My Maths

There is one My Maths activity set for this week which focuses on position, direction and movement.

Week 5 - Turns

 

Week 4 - 12th - 15th May 2020

I am so pleased you’ve all been enjoying yourself at home, working hard and having lots of fun too!

Like usual, the table below has some suggested activities you might like to complete at home. All of these activities can be done in any order and at any time that suits you. If you have other ideas that you would like to pursue, feel free to experiment and adjust as you like. Please remember, this is only guidance. On some days you won’t be able to do it all and that is ok. You can only do your best. 

As always, Times Table Rock Stars (https://ttrockstars.com/) is used as an additional challenge. This is not going to be appropriate for every child due to the timed conditions. Do not panic or worry if your child is not ready yet, they will be introduced to this more in Year 2. However, if you have been able to have a go and would like additional tables added, please let me know and I can do so.

As mentioned in the School Ping by Mc McConnell, we have decided to follow the lead of other local schools and are having a 4-day weekend with our families. Therefore, work this week has been set for Tuesday – Friday.

I look forward to safer times when we can all be together again,

Miss Cox

English Activity

Questions

Pick an animal of your choice, e.g. a dog. Then show your child the question words: why, when, where, who, what, how. Model how to ask a question using one of these words. Encourage them to think of different questions, using the question words, about the animal picture. E.g. What do dogs eat? You don’t need to find the answer to these questions and remember your question mark!

 

Describing words

Pick an animal of your choice. As a challenge you may like to choose a few different animals from the different animal types: Mammal, reptile, bird, fish or amphibians. Then write a list of words to describe the animal that you have picked. Can a family member guess your animal from your description?

 

Alphabetical order

Talk about alphabetical order and what this means. Write the alphabet out together. Ask your child to go and get 5 different objects from around the house. Now order them in alphabetical order and write the list down into your book. Repeat this and if possible, increase the number of objects. Can they order 7 objects or more?

 

Non-Fiction vs Fiction

What is a Non-Fiction book? (A real book) What is a Fiction book? (A made-up book). Find a selection of Non-Fiction and Fiction books in your house. If you don’t have any books, an adult should use the computer to find different children books that are both Non-Fiction and Fiction. Show them the covers of the books, look inside them, and make a guess! Non-Fiction or Fiction? Then decided which type of books they prefer, get them to choose their favourite and you can read it together.

 

 

Maths Activity

This week the maths focus is on sharing equally.

 

Cubes and hoops

Collect 20 cubes or other small objects. Use plates to represent your friends. Using your small objects and plates, answer the following questions:

  1. Can you share 20 cubes between 5 friends?

20 shared between 5 =  ____

 

  1. Can you share 20 cubes between 2 friends?

20 shared between 2 = ____

 

  1. Can you share 20 cubes between 10 friends?  

20 shared between 10 = ____

 

 

Cupcakes

  • 12 smarties
  • 6 marshmallows
  • 9 jellybeans between

 

Now share these sweets equally between 4 cupcakes:

  • 8 smarties
  • 12 marshmallows
  • 4 jellybeans between

 

Worksheet – Sharing Equally

Have a look at the attached document. You do not need to print this off. An adult should draw the basic outline of the children and objects. Your child can they draw lines to work out how to share the objects equally between the children.

 

My Maths

There is one My Maths activity set for this week which focuses on grouping and sharing. You may wish to use small objects and plates to share or group the objects as you answer the questions.

Week 4 - Sharing Equally

 

Dear Parents and children

Week 3 - 4th - 7th May 2020

It has been so nice to speak to you over the last 2 weeks. I have really enjoyed hearing how you have all been getting on and all the fun you have been having! Keep working hard for your adults at home and I can’t wait to see all of the hard work you have done.

Like usual, the table below has some suggested activities you might like to complete at home. All of these activities can be done in any order and at any time that suits you. If you have other ideas that you would like to pursue, feel free to experiment and adjust as you like. Please remember, this is only guidance. On some days you won’t be able to do it all and that is ok. You can only do your best. 

You will notice that there are no set activities on My Maths.  You can carry on using this resource if you would like to. When you log in, click on the orange tab labelled ‘practice’ and there will be different Year 1 activities for you to complete. This is not compulsory and no work has been set on My Maths so there is no expectation for you to do so. However, it is there if you would like to use it.

As always, Times Table Rock Stars (https://ttrockstars.com/) is used as an additional challenge. This is not going to be appropriate for every child due to the timed conditions. Do not panic or worry if your child is not ready yet, they will be introduced to this more in Year 2. However, if you have been able to have a go and would like additional tables added, please let me know and I can do so.

I hope you are enjoying your time together and are enjoying your daily walks in the sunshine.

I shall hopefully see you all very soon,

Phonics

Please see the ‘Phonics Treasure Hunt’ attached document. There are 3 levels you can choose from, please pick the most appropriate for your child - They need to be able to read them by themselves!

As your child finds each item they might like to take a picture.

 

Page 1: Three-sound or CVC words e.g. ‘mop’.

Page 2: Words which either use digraphs (two letters representing a sound) e.g. ‘f-or-k’ or words which consist of four sounds e.g. ‘s-t-e-p’.

Page 3: Two more sets of the harder words and two sets of outside words e.g. ‘twig’, for when it’s time to stretch your legs.

 

B English Activity

Common Exception Words

Please see the attached document. You will find a list of Year 1 common exception words. By the end of Year 1, all children are expected to be able to read and spell these words. For this task, pick a word from the list and write it in a sentence. Ask your child if they’d like to do a gold, silver or bronze challenge (they’ll know what this means). Bronze = 3 sentences, silver = 5 sentences, gold = 7 or more sentences. Challenge: Can you put 2 words in 1 sentence?

 

Human Body (part 1)

Start by singing head, shoulders, knees and toes or playing Simon Says to get your child thinking about the body. E.g. Simon says touch your nose.  Then, draw yourself or your family. How many body parts can you see and label? E.g. Head, toes, knees, arms etc. Do you know any body parts that you can’t see?  E.g. Brain, heart. Where are they? Add them to your picture too!

 

Human Body (part 2)

Using your picture from the previous day, now write facts about you and your body. E.g. I use my legs to run, I use my eyes to see etc. Use the bronze, silver, gold challenges again. Can they think of their own targets?

 

VE day

Friday 8th May marks 75 years since the end of WW2. I have attached a PowerPoint which you can read with your child so they can find out more about VE day. At the end of the PowerPoint there are some suggested activities. You do not have to do them all, they are only suggestions. If you have other ideas how you would like to celebrate and remember VE day then feel free to pursue and experiment as you like.

C Maths Activity

This week the focus is understanding equal groups. This will involve thinking about what the word equal means, how you would make equal groups and how to count in equal groups.
