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!
Wednesday 15th July 2020
In today's English session, we would like you to think of all of your best memories from being in year 1. You can use your 'My school year memory page' from yesterday to help you. Once you have done that, write another section for your leaflet about the parts of your school day you enjoy the most.
Making equal groups is what you will be learning in your maths session. Before you begin, have ready your the worksheet from below a pencil and some paper. To access the session follow the link within the PowerPoint.
You will practise forming lowercase letter s 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, you explored the story of 'The Cautious Caterpillar'. You thought about what was causing Cody the caterpillar to be worried about becoming a butterfly and flying. After that, you reflected on how you feel about the change you will experience when you start again in September in a new year group and classroom. Today, you will be starting to think about what you would like your new teacher to know about you and what you would like to achieve next year. Complete the passport from below and keep it safe so that you can give it to your teacher in September.
Have a wonderful day learning!
Fun in the sun
Wednesday 8th July 2020
Good morning everybody!
We hope you are enjoying making your leaflets about enjoying the sun safely. Today, we would like you to think about road safety. Follow the slides on the PowerPoint to learn how you can be safe on the road. Once you have finished write a new section for your leaflet about road safety.
Yesterday in maths you counted in 2 pence coins. Today you will be counting in 5 pence coins. Remember it is very similar to counting in 5s. Print, copy by hand or complete on your screen the worksheet from below.
You will be practising the second-to-last 'down' letter for your handwriting session. The letter that you will be forming is lowercase letter u. Say the phrase that goes with the letter (from the PowerPoint) as you form u to help you start and end in the correct place. From 9.30 am onwards, complete your phonics and spelling sessions by following the link on the slide.
On Purple Mash you will find chapter 3 of this week's book along with the comprehension activity. Log on to complete.
Choose another (different) design to create a second aeroplane. Once you have made it, take both (this one and the one from yesterday) outside. Fly them both. Which goes flies the furthest? Think of reasons why this happened. Could it be something to do with the design? If so, what?
In the summer, many people go on holiday to different destinations around the world. Today you get to do the same (kind of)! Follow the slides to go on a virtual holiday to a range of different countries. Talk about what you can see and the similarities and differences to England.
Today's story from around the world is from India. Click on the link within the PowerPoint to watch and listen. Can you locate India on the world map?
Have a great day everyone!
Find your brave
Wednesday 1st July 2020
For English today, you get to become a detective! Your task is to translate what Beegu is saying by using picture clues. There is an example on the PowerPoint to help you get started.
In maths, we would like you to work on counting in tens. Click on the link within the PowerPoint to access the session. You will also need the worksheet from below which could be printed or copied by hand.
The next 'down' letter that we would like you to practise forming is lowercase letter j. Look carefully at the direction in which it ends and remember there is a phrase that you could say as you form the letter to help you do this. Login into Purple Mash for the third chapter and activities for this week's book.
Beegu is in need of a friend. Can you design a friend for her? Have a look at some of the examples on the PowerPoint. Once you have designed it, have a go at making it. Don't worry if you don't have clay at home. You can use playdough instead. With the help of an adult, follow the recipe to make your own playdough.
If you haven't already done so, paint and decorate the rocket you designed and started to make on Monday. Don't forget to post pictures of your creations on our class blog. We look forward to seeing it!
Have a great day everybody!
Wednesday 24th June 2020
Good morning, everyone! We hope you are enjoying the wonderful sun.
So far this week, you have been thinking about why people send messages in the post and the important features of a letter. You have also thought about who your superhero is and why. Today you will start writing the first part of your letter. Follow the PowerPoint to help you do this.
Today's maths session continues with subtracting within 20 using different ways but instead of looking at number sentences that use numerals you will be working through word problems. On the second slide of the PowerPoint, you will find a list of what you need for the session before you begin.
In your handwriting session you will practise forming letter p. Remember you can say the phrase for p (Down the pirates plait and around his face) whilst you are practising to help you with starting and ending in the correct place. For phonics and spelling, follow the link and choose the set of sounds that you have been working on so far this week.
Follow 'Day 3' from the D.T. PowerPoint to finish making your superhero shield. If you have already drawn and made puppets for at least 4 or more characters from the art PowerPoint, you can plan out a scene using the storyboard. Think of the how the scene will start and the order of what will happen.
On Purple Mash, you will find your reading task for today. Remember you can also upload pictures of any work you have completed.
Have a successful day at home.
Wednesday 17th June 2020
Good morning everyone,
For English, we would like you to continue writing your poems. Today you will be writing another two lines based on blue and indigo things. Once you have finished, remember to lightly colour your rainbows using these two colours so that your writing can still be seen.
Just as you did yesterday, get your adult to challenge you on number facts. If your adult needs a reminder of how to do this, they can watch the video from Monday's page by Mrs Peita-Read. Today's maths lesson is about adding 2 parts to find a whole. You will need the worksheet 'Wednesday Maths: Find a part'. Remember to make your own if you do not have a printer.
Continue with the set of sounds you worked on (either set 1, 2 or 3) yesterday for your phonics and spelling sessions. Handwriting today focusses on the last 'around' letters. The phrase for today is "round her head, up past her earring, down her hair and flick'. Say it aloud as you practise to help you form letter q correctly.
For your reading comprehension task, log on to Purple Mash.
Now that you have designed your sun catcher (from yesterday's session), you get to make it. Follow the slide for 'Day 2' from the PowerPoint.
Being away from school for such a long time has meant that you have not got to spend time with your friends. Remembering our friendship skills is still important for us to do. This is what the session 'HUK Back 2 School - Wednesday' PowerPoint is about. There is a link on one of the slides to a video which shows you how to make a paper chain of people. The idea is that once you have made the chain, you can decorate each person with a friendship skill.
Have a lovely, enjoyable day.
Wednesday 10th June 2020
Today, we are going to revisit social distancing and the 2 metre rule. It is really important that you gain a better understanding of what 2 metres means and why we need to try to be this far apart from our friends. Download the ‘Wednesday 2 Metres’ PowerPoint to learn more. There is an activity at the end for you to attempt.
Afterwards, we want you to think about how we all should wash our hands correctly. Go to your sink now and practise with an adult. Once you have finished, draw a range of pictures to show each stage. You can cut them out and put them in the correct order. You could ask an adult to take a picture of your drawings and put them on our blog or you could show someone that you live with and teach them how to wash their hands properly.
For your daily phonics lesson, open up the PowerPoint and click on the YouTube link. With an adult, choose either the set 1, 2 or 3 speed sounds lesson. Afterwards, choose the same set spelling video. Then, follow the PowerPoint to practise writing the letter 'a'. Whilst you write it, you could say aloud ‘around the apple and down the leaf.’
For your art lesson, we want you to think about the children who you are missing that are at home or in school. You can print the heart template on the PowerPoint or, with plain paper, draw your own hearts. Write a kind message to someone that you are missing. Upload this onto our blog. We cannot wait to see your kind messages. If you are writing to a child in school, we will show them the message and they can respond back to you.
Have a lovely day and don’t forget to log into Purple Mash to complete your daily reading
