Year 1 Home Learning - TERM 6 - WEEK 1 - 1st-5th June 2020

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.

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 may like to dip in and out of the different activities suggested below. If your child enjoys and benefits from the live phonics lesson, please feel free to join in by following the link below. Or, you may like to take a paintbrush and a cup of water onto your daily walk. Dip the paintbrush into the water so it is wet and then get your child to ‘paint’ spellings onto the pavement. You could choose some tricky words from last week’s list or you could focus on a new sound each day.

 

Phonics Live Lesson

Starting at 10:30 join in with a live phonics lesson by clicking here.

Monday: oy as in toy

Tuesday: ph – phone

Wednesday: wh – wheel

Thursday: au – author

Friday: a – apron

 

These live lessons follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ program which we use at school.

 

English Activity

 

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.

Thursday: ir – bird

Friday: ou – cloud

 

These live lessons follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ program which we use at school.

 

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

Draw 3 big cupcake outlines on your page. The sweets mentioned below need to be shared equally between 3 cupcakes. Draw the right number of sweets on each cupcake.

  • 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.

Home Learning Project

 

I have loved hearing all about your projects. It sounds like you are having so much fun and getting really creative.

 

Well done to those who have included some beautiful handwriting with your project too!

 

It sounds like you have picked some fantastic topics and I can’t wait to see them all.

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.

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.

 

 

Making equal groups

Use Lego, pencils or other small objects to make equal groups of 2’s, 5’s or 10’s. Begin to use the language, ‘There are ___ groups of ___’. Then counting in 2’s, 5’s or 10’s, work out how many there are altogether.

 

 

E.g. There are 4 groups of 5.

So there are 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 20

 

Show me

Use Lego, animals or pictures to complete the questions:

  1. Miss Cox has 4 equal groups. Show me what Miss Cox’s groups could look like.
  2. Mrs Bowman has 3 unequal groups. Show me what Mrs Bowman’s groups could look like.
  3. Challenge: Can you make up your own question?

 

Game

You need counters or similar small objects, a pen and paper and you will play this game in pairs.

  1. Grab a handful of counters or other small objects and count them.
  2. Make equal groups with your objects and write down the number of equal groups you have made.
  3. Make as many equal groups as you can. (You may find 2 ways to make equal groups or even 3!)
  4. When you have both finished, compare with your partner. The person with the most equal groups wins.

 

Activity Sheet

See the attached worksheet on Equal groups. Work through the questions, you do not have to print this off but write the answers into your book. You can split this over 2 days if you need to. Work at your child’s pace. You will notice they use counters and ask the children to use some too. You can use Lego or anything similar to help your child work out the questions, you don’t have to use counters.

D Home Learning Project

 

Hopefully your projects are well under way and you’re enjoying doing them.

 

Thank you for those who sent their pictures in to Mrs Knight. They look fantastic!!

 

Be creative! Include Art, Geography, photos of models, History, Cooking etc. Just have fun with it!

 

Remember, projects will be displayed in the hall on return to school for everyone to see.

 
 
Week 3 - Making Groups
 

 

Week 2 - 27th April - 1st May 2020

Dear Year 1 parents and children,

Like last week, 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.

On Tuesday we would have had a class trip to Pizza Express where the children would have learnt how to make a pizza. If you already have these ingredients at home, feel free to make a pizza. However, if you do not have the ingredients, please do not go out specially.

If you have any questions about your child’s learning please contact Mrs Knight who can pass your message on or please make an appointment through the booking system.

I hope you are enjoying your time together and are staying strong and healthy.

I shall hopefully see you all very soon,

Miss Cox

B English Activity

This week is all about our 5 senses. Talk to your child about the 5 senses. What are they? Why do we need them?

 

Sense matching

Please print or get an adult to write out the attached document. Your task is to match the senses on the left to the correct object on the right. Challenge: Write your own sentences.

 

Outside poetry (part 1)

Walk in your garden or on your daily walk looking for items relating to the 5 senses. Collect the items and attach them to a piece of paper. Label each item with the correct sense. E.g. You may find a feather which would be touch. If you hear birds tweeting or something else you cannot collect, draw a picture on your paper instead!

 

Outside poetry (part 2)

Using your collection from the previous day, you are now going to add adjectives (describing words) to the objects you found. E.g. If you found a feather, you could write: A white soft feather.

 

Outside poetry (part 3)

Using your previous day’s work, now create a sense poem. My examples are shown in red.

 

Walking with… my dad

I can see… tall trees swaying in the gentle breeze.

I can hear… footsteps as I walk along the pebbly path.

I can touch… the white soft feathers from the singing birds.

I can taste… the sweet red strawberries.

I can smell… our yummy dinner.

 

Review Writing

As mentioned in the letter, we were supposed to be going to Pizza Express this week. But not to worry, if you have the ingredients already, you can make a pizza at home. If you don’t have the ingredients, that is ok. You could make a sandwich or something else you already have the ingredients for. You do not need to go shopping for this task. After you’ve made your chosen meal or snack, eat it and write a review. Try to write two things that you liked about it and one thing that you would do differently. E.g. Would you add more cheese next time?

C Maths Activity

 

How many?

Use a tablet or phone for a 1-minute timer. Count how many star jumps you can do. Change the activity to see what else you can do in a minute. How many times you can write your name? How many different numbers or words can you write? Challenge a family member, who can do the most?

 

Doubles

Introduce your child to the word double. Start by doubling 1, get 1 piece of Lego or another object and show them:

Double 1 = 1 + 1 = 2.

Do the same for 2.

Double 2 = 2 + 2 = 4

Carry on up until Double 10. Can they show you with Lego or toys?

I have attached a worksheet which you can look at for ideas. You do not have to print it out.

 

Counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s

Choose one pattern to focus on then when confident, move onto the next. Begin by counting aloud with an adult. We like listening to these songs in class:

https://youtu.be/GvTcpfSnOMQ

https://youtu.be/EemjeA2Djjw

https://youtu.be/Ftati8iGQcs

 

Next, write each number onto a small piece of paper. Then put them in the right order to make your own ‘Counting by 2’s/5’s/10’s’ number line. You could blue tack them to the wall or peg them to the washing line to help you remember them!

 

Finding Half (Day 1)

Explain what is meant by the word half – you share it with 2 people equally. Start by drawing a rectangle, square or triangle for your child. Can they split the shapes in half? If you have playdough, make shapes and then split them in half.

Finding Half (Day 2)

Now draw an even number of flowers or dots for your child to find half of. I have attached a worksheet for you to get ideas from.

D Home Learning Project

 

Hopefully your projects are well under way and you’re enjoying doing them.

 

I am looking forward to seeing them.

 

Feel free to send a picture so I can see how you’re getting on!

 

Be creative! Include Art, Geography, photos of models, History, Cooking etc. Just have fun with it!

 

Remember, projects will be displayed in the hall on return to school for everyone to see.

 

 

 

 

 

I can see

hard stones.

I can hear

I can touch

brightly coloured flowers in big blue pots.

I can taste

crispy apples.

I can smell

Dear Year 1 parents and children,

Week 1 - 20th-24th April 2020

I hope everyone is staying safe and positive through this difficult time.

I have put together some suggested activities in the table below. Most of these activities can be done in any order and at any time that suits you. The English activities are numbered 1 – 5 and it would be best to complete each one in this order as each activity builds on the previous one.

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. 

Do contact the office should you need a phone call from me or advice with any aspects of your child/children’s learning.

Stay safe and enjoy this time together.

I shall hopefully see you all very soon,

Miss Cox

Phonics

Have a look through the Phase 3 and 5 sounds found in your yellow project book.

Start by choosing one sound to focus on. Try and think of 2-3 different words with this sound. See if you can write them down. If you fancy a challenge, do the same with a different sound.

 

 

B English Activity

The class were briefly introduced to a Scottish plant hunter named George Forrest. He sailed to China to collect different plants and seeds and brought them back to the UK so we could have pretty flowers in our parks and gardens.

 

We will be adapting the story ‘We’re going on bear hunt’ to fit with George Forrest and his adventures.

 

  1. 1. Together, read ‘We’re going on bear hunt’ and act out the different scenarios. If you don’t have the book at home, watch the author Michael Rosen read you the story:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gyI6ykDwds

 

2. Re-enact ‘We’re going on a plant hunt’. Change the words from bear to plant. E.g.

We’re going on a plant hunt.

We’re going to find a new one!

What an exciting day…

We’re not scared!

Use the pictures attached in the PDF file to help you continue saying the poem aloud.  Try to fill the blank spaces with exciting words to describe the picture. What does it look like, sound like, feel like…?   Challenge: Draw your favourite scene and write any describing words you can think of.

 

3 / 4. Use the ideas from the Bear Hunt story to write your own Plant Hunt poem. Start writing it today and continue writing it tomorrow. Use the attached PDF with pictures to help you. Adults could write the first repeating verse and children could continue. E.g.

We’re going on a plant hunt.

We’re going to find a new one!

What an adventurous day…

We’re not scared!

 

Uh-uh! A jungle!

A massive, leafy jungle.

We can’t go over it.

We can’t go under it.

Oh no! We’ll have to go through it!

C Maths Activity

 

Track Games

Make a number track to 20 or longer.  Throw a dice. Move along that number of spaces BUT before you move you must work out what number you will land on. If you are wrong, you don’t move. The winner is the first to land on exactly 20.

 

Run Around

Write large numbers onto pieces of paper and place them on the floor in the house or the garden. The adult shouts out different mental arithmetic type questions, e.g. one more than 8, one less than 12 etc. The children run to the piece of paper with the right answer!

 

Number formation

How many numbers can you write? Do you know what the numbers to 50 look like? Try counting to 50 or beyond and write them as you say them.

Make sure the numbers are formed correctly.
