YEAR 1 - HOME LEARNING - END OF TERM 6

Dear Year 1…nearly Year 2,

As our time together in Year 1’s classroom ends, I want to say a big thank you. You have been on an incredible journey this year and I am so proud of you all. Not only have you learnt to read and enjoy books, but you can also write lots of brilliant sentences too. You have drawn fantastic pictures, made superb boat models and shown how kind you can be to each other.

You have been such a fun and loving class and it has been a pleasure to teach you all this year. I am feeling incredibly grateful that we are moving into Year 2 together. It will be a brilliant year filled with more joy and exciting activities. We will have fun learning maths, reading books, writing stories, completing science investigations and lots more!

You have all made such wonderful progress with your reading, so keep on reading over summer. Find books that make you laugh, smile and be happy. If you are struggling to find books, the Hythe Library are doing their reading challenge again, but as the library is closed, it will be online only. 

Have an amazing summer break with your families, you all deserve it! Thank you for filling my days with smiles and laughter. Here’s to another great year together!

Miss Cox

 

 

 

Dear Year 1,

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’.

 

Flashbacks

Please see the attached PowerPoint. There are 4 different slides with different questions based on everything we have learnt so far in Year 1. You do not have to do them all, but pick and choose the slides you would like.

  •  

 

Home-made skeleton

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

  • 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.

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

delicious herbs.

I can touch

brightly coloured flowers in big blue pots.

I can taste

crispy apples.

I can smell

the wind rustling the leaves.

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:

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!

 

5. If you could go on an adventure anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? How would you get there? Draw a picture and write a few sentences. Remember to use the correct punctuation.

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.
