Below is a summary of some of the lessons that we will be completing at school. Complete the ones that you feel are appropriate.
Moving on up!
Tuesday 14th July 2020
Following on from yesterday, today for English you will be adding another section to your information leaflets for the new year 1 children. Think about what is different in year 1 compared to reception.
For maths, we would like you to work on making doubles. Remember when we have a double of something we have two of it. Print or copy by hand the worksheet from below and follow the link within the PowerPoint to access today's session.
In your handwriting session you will be continuing with practising the 'curly' letters. Today's letter is lowercase letter f which we form slightly differently in our school. You may see it being formed without a tail but in our school f has a tail. Complete your phonics and spelling sessions after 9.30 am and remember to choose the same set spelling video as your phonics session.
Log on to Purple Mash to complete your reading comprehension task.
Yesterday you read the story about the 'Cautious Caterpillar'. Today we would reflect on the story in more detail. Re-read the story and then follow the PowerPoint 'Spread your wings' and think about how you are feeling about moving to a new year group and classroom.
Finally, we would like you to think about year 1 and all of the memories you have from it. Complete the sheet 'My school year memory page' with some of these memories.
Have a good day everyone!
Fun in the sun
Tuesday 7th July 2020
Following on from yesterday's learning in English, we would like you to think about water safety because swimming in pools and at beaches is another way people enjoy the sun. Today we would like you to write a short section about water safety in the leaflet that you started yesterday. Once you have finished, draw a picture to go with it.
In maths, you will be moving onto counting in 2p coins which is quite like counting in 2s. You will need the worksheet from below which you can print or copy by hand.
Follow the link within the 'Handwriting and Phonics' PowerPoint to get your daily phonics session from 9.30am onwards. Choose the same set spelling video once you have completed your phonics session. After, practise forming the next 'down' letter which is lowercase letter r.
On Purple Mash, you will find today's reading and comprehension activities when you log in.
For your science session, you will be designing two different types of paper aeroplanes, one today and one tomorrow. Watch the Youtube video to help you do this. On the PowerPoint you will also find slides with folding instructions. Keep your aeroplane in a safe place ready for tomorrow's session.
Next, we would like you to create a windmill. Follow the instructions on the PowerPoint and take care when cutting. Once you have done this, find a small box that you can decorate with sand colours. Make a hole in the middle to push the stick of the windmill through. Place you windmill outside and watch it turn with the wind.
Finally, imagine you stumble upon your ideal deserted island whilst you are on holiday. What would it look like? What things would you take with you so that you can enjoy your time alone? Follow the PowerPoint and use the sheet to design and label your ideal desert island.
Today's story is set in the Malaysian jungle. Can you identify where Malaysia is on the world map? Listen to the story by following the link within the PowerPoint.
Remember you can upload any work that you would like to share on our Purple Mash blog. Have fun!
Find your brave
Tuesday 30th June 2020
In today's English session you will continue to listen to the story of 'Beegu' up to 59 seconds on the video. The link is within the PowerPoint. You will then write a list of different ways that you can be a good friend to others. Remember to use a new line for each idea.
Yesterday, you worked on counting in twos. Today you will move on to counting in fives. Follow the link in the PowerPoint to access the session. You will also need the worksheet below.
For your handwriting session, we would like you to practise forming lowercase letter i which is another 'down' letter. Remember to practise your daily phonics and spellings (from 9.30am onwards). The link is within the PowerPoint. On Purple Mash you will find the second chapter and activities for this week's book.
Read the story of 'Beegu' again. Can you help Beegu find her way home by drawing a map? Follow the prompts on the PowerPoint. You can use the sheet with the background or use some plain paper.
Hopefully, once Beegu uses your map, she will find her way home. What will it look like? What geographical features might you see? Mountains, seas etc. are examples of geographical features. Once you have thought of what Beegu's home will look like, we would like you to create a landscape and colour it in. If you have paint at home, you could it to paint your landscape instead.
Have a good day everyone!
Tuesday 23rd June 2020
In today's English session, you will need to think of a superhero in your life so that you could write a 'thank you' letter to them. Not all superheroes have supernatural powers. Your hero can be anyone who you think is brave or who has a special quality that you admire.
Subtracting within 20 using a few different ways is what you will be learning in your maths session. Have ready your 2 tens frame (from yesterday or make 2 new ones) along with the worksheet, a pencil and some paper.
You will practise forming letter b in your handwriting session which is then followed by your phonics and spelling sessions. Remember to log on to Purple Mash for your daily reading comprehension task.
Yesterday in D.T. you designed and made a logo for your shield and in art you drew a superhero or two. Today, you will be designing a shield (follow day 2 on the PowerPoint) for your logo to go on and continuing with drawing another superhero. As an extra challenge we want you imagine yourself as a superhero and draw a costume that you might wear as a superhero. Think about the special qualities you would also have.
Remember you can share your work on our class blog.
Have a good day everyone
Tuesday 16th June 2020
Good morning, everyone!
Today, you get to listen to another poem for your starter in English. Then you will continue your rainbow poems by thinking of yellow and green things. Remember to add your 2 new lines to the ones you wrote yesterday and to colour them in lightly so that your writing can still be seen.
For your starter in maths, using the number cards that you made on Monday, get an adult to make up and challenge you on number fact questions like Mrs Peita-Read did in the video. Once you have warmed your brain up, you will focus on 'fact families'. You will see how the 'part-whole relationship' helps with understanding addition and subtraction facts that use the same set of numbers. As with yesterday's session, there is a worksheet to complete which you can either print or copy by hand.
Your phonics and spelling sessions are followed by a handwriting one which focusses on the letter g. This session has a new rhyme that you could say aloud when you practise forming the letter. Remember to get your adult to choose the correct set of phonics and spelling for you.
For the next few days until Thursday, we would like you to work on making your own sun catcher. For today's session, download and follow the slides for 'Day 1'. You will also need the sheet 'Design a sun catcher' or you can make your own one.
Log on to Purple Mash and complete the second task for this week's story.
Yesterday you reflected on the things you have been missing and those that you are looking forward to. You will be moving on to thinking about feelings today. There are 3 main points we want you to take from the session 'HUK Back to School - Tuesday', which are:
1) We may experience lots of different feelings.
2) We may not feel the same things at the same time.
3) Some days will be better than others.
Use the example on the slide to make your own grid so that you can complete today's task.
Have a successful day learning and don't forget to upload any work you would like to share on our blog.
Tuesday 9th June 2020
Today, we are going to learn about social distancing and the 2 metre rule. Download the ‘Tuesday 2 Metres’ PowerPoint to learn more. There is an activity at the end for you to attempt.
After our English lesson, you can complete some free writing. The PowerPoint ‘Free Writing’ explains that you can do it on anything that you want. Please upload your writing to the blog once you have finished. Don’t forget capital letters, full stops, different punctuation marks and adjectives. Also, try to include some conjunctions like because.
Each day, we will complete a phonics and handwriting lesson. The PowerPoint below has web links for today’s phonics sound. We will practise writing the letter c in our handwriting lesson. Whilst you write it, you could say aloud ‘curl around the caterpillar.’
For your art lesson, draw a self portrait and explore how you have been feeling during this different time. It is OK not to feel OK! The PowerPoint will explain more...
Have a good day and enjoy your learning!
