Home learning activities

Monday 1st March

Well done for getting back in the swing of things last week and completing your home learning. Only one more week and we will all be back together in the classroom. How exciting!

As always, just do your best with home learning. If you or your child are unwell, we would not expect you to do the activities as your well-being is more important. Each family circumstance will be different, so just do what you can.

Maths

The activities are taken from the video, so if you wish to print out the sheets before the video begins this will help your child to undertake the activity. Then watch the video before attempting the activity. If you do not have a printer and the activity is a worksheet then children can just write their answers in their book or on paper.

Measuring length

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zf4vbdm

 

Watch the videos and complete the activities.

Tuesday

Measuring height

https://vimeo.com/507433540

 

SOME IDEAS:

Start by measuring your child’s height first and show them where they sit on the height chart. Then compare your height to theirs. Ask your child “do they think you are shorter or taller than me (parent) and why?” Can you find a stuffed toy that is shorter than you? Model/guide using a tape measure or height chart.

Talk about the similarities and differences – size, and shape. Use language such as ‘taller than’ and ‘shorter than’.

RE: Catholics go to Mass: A special Meal

Read the story below:

Last week, I asked Mum why we always went to Mass on Sunday morning.  Mum said Sunday was a special day for the friends of Jesus.  “It’s a day when the parish family gather together to remember Jesus, a day when they celebrate Jesus’ love,” she told me.  “It is a very special meal that Jesus asked us to celebrate to remember him.  It helps us love Jesus more.”

After Mass, Mum bought me a book in the little shop at the back of church.  It is all about Sunday.  It has pictures of what happens at Mass.  When we got home, Dad read it with me.  I can remember lots of things it told us.  There is a picture of the priest welcoming all the people.  He reminds them that they have come together to remember Jesus and his love for them.  He says a prayer.  Everyone sits down to listen to stories about Jesus.  They say prayers thanking God for sending Jesus.  Some receive Holy Communion, and some receive a blessing.  The priest sends people home to take Jesus’ love out to everyone they meet.

We go to Mass to share a special meal with Jesus. He feeds our minds with his stories and blessings and he feeds our body by sharing Holy Communion with the parish members.

TASK: Create a poster to share Jesus’ love with the world.

Science: Please follow this link to the online academy:

 https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/how-do-i-plant-a-bean-cgwp6e

Our new Science topic is about growing plants. It would be really beneficial for the children to have a go at growing seeds over the next few weeks. In the above lesson, the teacher plants a kidney bean. I’ve always found that runner beans grow very well and quickly – children always like quick results! When we have done this in the past, they sometimes grow as much as 5cm in a day. You could link in some Maths work by measuring the plant daily or weekly to see how it’s growing. Planting a runner bean would also link nicely with our English work on ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.

P.E.:  Limber up for some ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ themed yoga poses!

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKC_Lgvukv0

Art :  Had we been in school, we would have been looking at Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’, and creating paintings in that style. Take a look at the painting (PDF attached). Notice how Van Gogh uses really thick paint to give the flowers and leaves texture. Notice also that the sunflowers have lots of different shades of yellow, orange and brown in them. If you have paint at home, create your own painting in the same style. Maybe you can copy Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’, or maybe you have some other flowers at home that you could copy. If you don’t have paint, you could use colouring pencils, felt pens, or anything else you fancy!

Music: Please follow this link to the online academy for lesson 5 on ‘rhythm’ (following on from last term).

RE: The love and care shown in the family

Share your experience of a special meal with an adult, it might have been a birthday party, Christmas, First Communion or Baptism celebration.  Here are some key questions to help you retell your meal:

  1. When might you have a special meal?
  2. What makes a meal special?
  3. Who was there?
  4. Who prepared the meal?
  5. What did you share?
  6. How did you help?
  7. What did you like best about it?
  8. How did it make you feel?

ACTIVITY – You can either paint a picture of yourself sharing your family meal, or you could design a place mat to serve your food on. It can have a picture of your family sharing a meal and you could add in key words to show the emotions you feel when you get to share a special meal together.

Phonics: We are going to revisit phase 5A again to consolidate our learning of the new sounds.

Monday

 Revisit the ‘ay’ sound.

The story of Grace Darling (History)

Grace Darling lived in a lighthouse over 100 years ago. Watch her story:

Attached to this plan, there is a worksheet to record important information about Grace Darling. If you can, print it out and fill it in. If you don’t have a printer, ask an adult to draw it onto a piece of paper for you so you can fill it in and stick it into your Topic book.

 

There are some facts to help you here:

Wednesday

Linked to Art

Telescopes – As Grace lived surrounded by the sea and it was an important part of her father’s job to monitor her surroundings, a telescope was an important part of their equipment. Could you have a go at making and decorating your own? You could use junk modelling e.g., toilet roll or kitchen roll, pringles tube. You could, if you’re feeling adventurous, try use making papier mache. Can you find a way to make your telescope extendable (make it longer)?

You could also use playdough or salt dough.

Why did you choose that material to make your telescope? Why do you think this was a good material to use?

Thursday

The life of Grace Darling compared to my own life.

My life / Grace’s life

Grace was born so long ago, that her life was very different from today. Grace would have had no electricity. Can you give any examples of things that are powered by electricity? Grace would have had no light bulbs, so at night her only light would have been from a candle. With the help of a grown up, light a candle and turn out the lights shut your curtains to imagine what it was like with no electricity. Can you read a book or see very well? Describe how different Grace’s life was from yours – e.g. she was part of a family of nine children, she didn’t go to school but was taught by her father in the lighthouse, they had no running water and had to row to the neighbouring island to collect the vegetables they grew and look after their animals.

 

Create a comparison poster between Grace’s life and your own. Some examples could be “To get food for my family we go to Sainsbury’s or Aldi… Grace’s family rowed to the other island to get food”. Other topics for comparison could be schooling, lights, running water, sharing bedrooms etc. This could either be illustrated or, in the case of their own lives, shown with photographs from home.

Watch the video clip about Grace Darling and see if you can answer the questions below.

 

1. What would have been the good things about living in a lighthouse, and what was not so good?

 

2. After rescuing the people from the storm, Grace says that 'perhaps she was brave.' Do you think she was brave?

 

3. Did she deserve all the attention from newspapers?

 

4. Do you agree with Grace that the attention and fame was because she was a girl?

 

5. Can you think of any other ordinary people who might be - or who deserve to be - famous for doing extraordinary things.

 

6. Can you think of a set of reasons (or criteria) why people should be famous, or as historians say, significant?

RE: Jesus is the most special person for the parish family. We learn stories about him from the bible. We listened to the story last week of Mary and Joseph taking Jesus to the temple and meeting Simeon.

Another story which the parish family will hear at Mass is from Luke’s Gospel where he tells of another journey Jesus, Mary and Joseph took to the Temple when Jesus was twelve years old.

Rhythms (thenational.academy)   lesson 2

RE: Jesus is the most special person for the parish family, we read and listen to stories from the Bible about him to learn about his life and his lessons. One of the stories we hear about at this time of year is about Mary and Joseph taking Jesus as a baby to be presented in the Temple.  Mary and Joseph made many journeys to the Temple. We remember this story on 2nd February, the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus.  Candles are blessed and carried on this day to remind us that Jesus would bring light and joy to the world.

Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the Temple. They wanted to thank God for him. At the Temple, they met an old man called Simeon. He was a good and holy person. He often went to the Temple to pray. When he saw Jesus, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God. He said, “This baby will bring light and joy to the world.” Mary and Joseph were very surprised by Simeon’s words and didn’t know what he meant at the time. Simeon blessed them.

After that, they met Anna. She was eighty-four years old and spent all her time in the Temple praying. She said a thank-you prayer to God for Jesus and told everyone that he would bring happiness to those who loved God. Mary and Joseph took Jesus home to Nazareth where he grew up and learned to praise God.

Based on Luke 2: 23-40

Activity: Design a candle to celebrate Jesus being the light of the world.

Poetry

We are going to spend the next two days learning and performing the poem ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat’. This poem has many different verses – we expect you already know some of them! Here are three verses that we’d like you to learn, and then we’d like you to try and think up a verse of your own!

 

Row, row, row your boat,

Gently down the stream,

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,

Life is but a dream.

 

Row, row, row your boat,

Gently down the river,

If you see a polar bear,

Don’t forget to shiver!

 

Row, row, row your boat,

In to outer space,

If you see an alien,

Pull a funny face!

 

When you think of your own verse, try to follow the pattern of the first three verses. Can you make it rhyme?

Extra challenge: can you write your verse in your book?

Tuesday

Poetry

Today we’d like you to practise performing your poem – it would be brilliant if you could do all three verses and the new verse that you wrote yourself. Add actions to aid your memory and make it more entertaining. Can you perform it to the rest of your family?

Wednesday

Factsheet

 Today we are going to start learning about a famous Arctic animal – the polar bear! Watch the following clip:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-ks1-ks2-wonders-of-nature-polar-bears-in-their-habitat/z73ygwx

 

Talk about the following questions with an adult and write your answers in your book.

  • Imagine you are a baby polar bear waking up - what might you see when you open your eyes?
  • What is around you?
  • Describe what you might do during the day.
  • Where do you go and how do you get there?
  • What do you need and how might you get it?

Thursday

Factsheet

Over the next two days you will be making a polar bear fact sheet. You will need to use the internet, books for home if you have some, or ask adults to find out the information you need. On your fact sheet, include pictures, information about what polar bears look like (perhaps you could label a picture of a polar bear), what polar bears eat, their homes and baby polar bears. Make it as colourful and interesting as you can!

Art: In school this week we would have been using chalks or chalk pastels to create pictures of the northern lights on black paper. If you have access to these materials at home, have a go. Use your fingertips or a sponge to smudge and blend the colours together. If you don’t have chalks or pastels, perhaps you could draw, paint or make a collage using scraps of bright paper or fabric. The following link is a video to inspire you.

RE:  People who help at Mass on Sunday.

There are quite a few people who welcome and help at Mass on Sunday. Can you name any of these people?

Although there are people there with special roles, everyone who is there is important and joins in by praying, listening, singing and saying the responses.

Some people have special roles at Sunday Mass e.g. greeters, the priest, the deacon, altar servers, readers and more. Some people help to prepare the church for Mass on Sunday e.g. flower arrangers and those who clean the church.

Draw a picture of a church and the people who help at church and have a special role to play. Don’t forget to include yourself in the picture. You are important too!

  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

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!

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.  

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.

Who lives in the Arctic?

Friday

Our new topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Planning a letter.

Over the next week in school, we will be planning and writing a letter to Apac (the Inuit boy we met in the video yesterday). Today we will be thinking about things we’d like to tell him about ourselves. Draw a picture of yourself and around it, write some of the things you’d like to tell him e.g. your favourite food, hobbies, your family etc.

Phonics : Play some of the phonics games from the following link all based on Phase 3 sounds.

Games - Epicphonics.com

Science: Take a winter walk around your area, garden, or even better, the woods. What has changed since the autumn? What can you see, feel or smell? Do you need to wear different clothes?

Geography: Can you name the 7 continents of the world? Watch this clip, then see how many you can remember. If you have a world map at home – maybe a poster or an atlas, perhaps you could write seven labels for the continents and stick them on. Maybe you could print a world map and colour the continents in different colours.

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.

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!
