Have a wonderful summer holiday, be good, stay safe and I will see you all at some point around school in September.

Good luck in Year 2, I know you will love it!

Today I would like you to design a pair of new shoes.

 

Think carefully about these things:

 

  • What is the purpose of your new shoes, what will you be using them for, when will you be wearing them? Are they for sports, for running, for a party, for comfort?
  • What will your shoes be made out of? Will they be shiny, fluffy, stretchy, wooden, waterproof?
  • What will your new shoes look like? What colour will they be, will they be more than one colour? What style will they be?
  • Who are you designing your new shoes for? Are they for you, or are they for one of the creatures in the story or maybe another mini beast or animal?

 

Once you have thought about these questions and decided, I would like you to draw a picture of your new shoes and label them to say what they are made of and explain all the different parts.

Here are some things to think about:

What does it look like, what colour is it?

How many legs does it have?

Does it have a shell, if so what is it like?

Where would your creature live?

Things to remember:

Not all poems need to rhyme.

Every line in a poem needs to start with a capital letter.

Use lots of descriptive words in your poem, you can use adjectives to describe the nouns and adverbs to describe the verbs to tell us how something is being done.

You can use some of the ideas from the poems you have read today and then use lots of ideas of your own.

Have fun, remember to send me your poems so that I can share them on our web page.

Have a look at these poems about under the sea.

 

Sea Creatures by Meish Goldish

 

Come along, come with me,

Take a dive in the deep blue sea.

Put on your gear, let’s explore

All the way to the ocean floor!

 

See that snail wrapped in curls?

Look! An oyster wearing pearls!

Watch the octopus oh so dark,

But don’t you dare to pet the shark!

 

Dive on down, seaward bound,

Motion in the ocean is all around!

Dive on down, seaward bound,

Motion in the ocean is all around.

 

Now we’re very far below,

The lantern fish are all aglow.

Is that a tiny shock you feel?

You just met an electric eel!

 

Giant blue whales start to stir,

Bigger than dinosaurs ever were!

Wave goodbye to the squid and sponge,

This is the end of our deep-sea plunge!

 

Dive on down, seaward bound,

Motion in the ocean is all around!

Dive on down, seaward bound.

Motion in the ocean is all around.

Today I would like you to have a go at writing an acrostic poem. Look at the pictures to explain what an acrostic poem is and how to write one.

Now have a go at writing your own Acrostic Poem. If this is too tricky, have a go at writing a normal poem about the ocean and under the sea like the ones I have shown you today. Remember if you send me pictures of your work, I will put it on the website for everyone to see.

 

As today is Fun Time Friday, we couldn’t go without a song could we!

Remember that if a shape is split into 2 equal parts then each part is a half. 2 halves make one whole. If the shape is split into 2 parts but the parts are not equal (the same) then the parts are not halves.

I will give you the answers with your EAA.

 

Here is your activity for today.

 

Today we are going to start off with another underwater story. Today’s story is called ‘The Bravest Fish’ by Matt Buckingham.

 

Click on the link below to see the story.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9qCa0wntIY

 

Stanley was a very brave little fish when he was left all alone. He went on an adventure to try and find them. On the way he came across lots of scary creatures. He saw the lobster who was counting his money, his reflection in a shiny pearl and a huge scary shark.

Today I would like you to write a new adventure for Stanley. In the story Stanley woke up late and was late for school so his friends went on the trip without him.

 

Think of another problem that Stanley could have.

Who does Stanley meet on his new adventure, are they scary, are they friendly, do they help him or does Stanley have to try and escape from them?

 

I can’t wait to see your stories and to find out what Stanley gets up to on his new adventures. Have fun. Remember to start your sentences with a capital letter. Remember your finger spaces and to form your letters correctly making your writing as neat as possible.

Wednesday 10th June 2020

Good morning year 1. I hope you are enjoying our activities about the ocean? How did you get on with your under the sea scenes yesterday? I'd love to see them.

Here is your EMA for today it's all about sharing in equal groups.

I will give you the answers with your EAA.

 

Our Story today is called 'A Whale's Tale'

The story we are going to watch today is a story without words but it has a very powerful message. It is called ‘A Whale’s Tale’ It is quite a sad story but unfortunately it is very true. Click on the link below to see the story.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFPoIU5iiYQ

 Look carefully.  What do you notice happening in the story? It is a story about pollution and how sadly people are not recycling their rubbish they are throwing it into the ocean.

What did you notice happening to the animals in the story because of the pollution? Talk to your grown up about it.

 

For your activity today I would like you to make a poster which encourages people to stop polluting the oceans. To recycle their rubbish and not throw it into the ocean as it harms the animals. On your poster you could show people what happens to the poor animals when they get tangled in the rubbish.

 

As a challenge, if you would like to, you could make a short video telling people about the importance of keeping our oceans clean. You could send me your videos and I will put them on the website. Be creative! You could make it like a news report. Have fun!

 

As a DT project you could make a model out of recycled items. Can you make you model on an Ocean theme to match our theme for the week? I'd love to see pictures of your models so don't forget to email me pictures of them.

Good morning Year 1. I hope you had fun yesterday with the World Ocean Day activities I set for you. We are going to be doing lots more activities about the ocean this week.

But first, I had a lovely email from Emily yesterday. She said that she is really enjoying the Ocean work so far and has sent me a picture of her fact file which she chose to do about the Orca Whale. Well done Emily, you have done a very good job and well done for learning how to add the pictures too. I'm glad you enjoyed doing your own research as well. Did anyone else do the Orca Whale? Have a look at Emily's. Sorry it's so small but I hope you can still see it.Well done Emily. laughyes

Emily also sent me some more pictures of the things she has been doing as well as her school work. She has planted an apple tree that her Grandad gave her and she has been looking after her Lillies and her bean plant and she planted some tomatoes from seed at the beginning of lockdown and they have now started to grow. Well done Emily, you are a good gardener.

Emily has been busy.

For your EMA this morning I have made you another video to watch. Watch the video carefully and then have a go at answering the questions.

To begin our under the sea adventures, today I would like you to watch this video about the world’s oceans.

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

 

Now have a look at these fact files about creatures you might find in the ocean. You can pause each slide so that you can read the information.

 

Your activity today is to choose one of the underwater animals you have seen today in either the video or the fact file slides. See if you can do some research to find out more information about them. Once you have gathered as much information as you can, I would like you to create your own fact file so that somebody else can learn about the underwater animal you have chosen. Make it as interesting as you can with facts and pictures. Remember if you send it to me I can add it to our class page for everyone to see.

Here are the answers to your EMA. How did you get on? Did you set it out the way that I showed you this morning?

 

Well done! Now here is your EAA.

This afternoon we are going to do some more grammar activities.

This week I have also got some spellings for you to learn. Watch the video below and then have a  go at practising them every day. I will give you your test on Friday.

Summer Term Half Term Week

 

 

Monday 25th May 2020

Good morning Year 1

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and didn't get blown away, it's been so windy hasn't it!

It was so lovely to see so many of you when I came round to deliver your new work packs. It was so nice to see your happy smiling faces, I have missed you all so much and YES, you have definitely grown LOTS!

I am really sorry that I didn't get to see all of you, some of you were not at home when I called but I spoke to lots of your grown ups and they said you were doing very well.

Have a look at the pictures below and see how many of your friends you can spot. 

Logan was at his dad's when I called but his mum showed me his bean plant. Look how tall it has grown, it's amazing! Well done Logan! laughyes

Albie your bean plant looks great too!

Lewis was at his dad's when I called round but his mum face timed him so we could still say hi. Can you spot him on his mum's phone?

If you have a look on the school videos page under the Children's information tab on the main page, then you will see a video of school work pack home delivery day.laughyesheart

Layla sent me a lovely email with some photos to show all the things she has been busy doing. Layla made a Snail World where she kept some snails for a while before they went back off to the wild. Can you spot Layla's snails. I think they had a lovely time visiting Snail Land Layla! They must have had a great time because they stayed for about a week! laughyes

This week is officially half term week, so I won’t be posting your activities on the website each day as normal. Instead I thought you might like to have a go at some of these activities. There are 100 activities for you to have a go at so that should keep you busy throughout the week. You can probably continue with them for a few weeks too! Click on the document at the bottom of today’s page to see the activities.

I have also included some mindful activities that you might like to try, they are nice and calming and relaxing. Click on the document at the bottom of today’s page.

Something else you might like to try over half term is to earn yourself a Blue Peter badge. These badges are very special but it is possible for you to earn them. I am very lucky, I have a Blue Peter badge because I won a competition when I was about 10 years old! Log on to the Blue Peter website and see if there are any badges that you would like to try and get.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/findoutmore/apply-for-a-blue-peter-badge

Remember you can also continue with your reading, you can read books you have at home or you can find lots of e books to read on the Oxford Owl Website. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/?view=image&query=&type=book&age_group=Age+5-6&level=&level_select=&book_type=&series=#

You can also find some fun activities to do with books here: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/open-the-hometime-cupboard/

There are also lots of stories for you to listen to here:

https://www.storylineonline.net/

This is also a good website about books:

https://toppsta.com/blog/view/bookish-ideas-if-you're-self-isolating-with-the-kid

Keep practising your numbers:

counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s

Number bonds to 10 and 20

Finding half of an amount and doubling numbers

Baking is really good to help you with your measuring.

I’d love to see some pictures of the activities you choose to do over half term. Have fun, love from Miss Hulme xxx

100 fun indoor activities

Mindfulness activities

Gratitude Scavenger Hunt

Acts of Kindness. How many can you do over half term and how many can you continue to do over time?

Take some pictures of you doing activities over half term, especially acts of kindness as they really do make a difference. Send me your pictures so that I can add them to the website, we would all love to see them. laughheart

Today is the day! I will be coming round today to deliver your new work packs. I am really looking forward to seeing you. I bet you have grown so much. I'm not sure what time I will arrive at your house today but it will be lovely to see you. Look out for our school mini bus. See You later! laughyesheart

Here is your EMA

 

Today let’s see what you can remember about doubling and halving. To double a number you need to add the same amount again, (Twice as many). To half a number you need to share it between 2 or put them equally into 2 groups. Have a go at these questions, be careful because some are doubling and some are halving.

     1. half of 2 =

     2. Double 2 =

     3. Half of 4 =

Good morning Year 1

Yay! The sun is shining today! laughHopefully you will have lots of time to play outside whilst it is sunny.

Here is your EMA

 

Today we are going to be learning how to double a number.

To double a number you add the same number again, for example to find out what double 1 is, do this sum:  1 + 1 = 2

To find out what double 2 is, do this sum: 2 + 2 = 4

Double 3 is:  3 + 3 = 6

Watch the song about doubles by clicking on the link below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4U2QLjqripY

Here is your activity for today.

For yesterday’s activity, you designed your own zoo. Think about the animals that you decided to have in the zoo, also think about their enclosures. Today you are going to design a poster to advertise your zoo so that people want to come and visit. Make it eye catching and remember to include all the important bits of information. What would make you want to visit a zoo?

EAA

 

This afternoon you are going to practise your doubling. Click on the link below.

Click on ‘Doubles’ and then click doubles to 10. You can play this game several times to try and beat your score. Once you have played that a few times, if you want a real challenge, you could try the section that says ‘Doubles from 10 to 20’ These are tricky!

Click on the link below to see the story ‘Zoo’ By Anthony Browne. We have read this in class before.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T07u0AggVsg

How do you think the animals in the zoo are feeling and why?

If you were the zoo keeper, what could you do to make life better for the animals that live in the zoo?

 

Think about the work we did yesterday about the RSPCA and the things that animals need to keep them happy and safe.

 

Design a new zoo for the animals. Things to think about:

What animals would you have?

What would their enclosures look like and why? What kinds of things would they have in them?

What would you need to make the animals happy and safe?

Draw a picture of your zoo, you could even make a model of it too if you wanted to. Have fun!

Good afternoon Year 1

To find a quarter, split the items into groups of four and then count how many in each group.

To find half of an amount, split them onto 2 groups and then count how many in each group.

 

1. Add the correct punctuation mark to these sentences.

Which of these does each sentence need:    ?     !     .

What a mess

I like apples

Where are my jeans

28    12     8      17     0     6     14     5

 

 

2. There are 12 lollipops in total.

A quarter of 12 is ______.

 

 

An apple costs 1p, a strawberry costs 2p, grapes cost 4p, and pears cost 6p

Click on the link above and listen to the story about The Disgusting Sandwich.

What is your favourite sandwich? Can you make it? Have a go with your grown up. What ingredients did you need? How did you make it? What did you do first, what did you do next, what did you do after that?

 

You are going to write a set of instructions to explain how to make your favourite sandwich.

First you need to list the ingredients and the equipment you need.

Then write instructions step by step, make sure they are in the right order.

You will need to include some time connectives like: First, then, next, after that, finally etc.

You will also need to use some imperative verbs (bossy verbs) like: Cut, spread, take, shake, grate, squeeze, chop etc

Once you have made your sandwich and written your instructions you could take a picture of your sandwich. I bet it is delicious. laughyesheart

Still no sign of the sunshine.

How are you getting on with your activities? What else have you been doing?

I had a email from Emily to say that she is feeling much better and her face looks much better now after falling off her bike. She now has a new helmet which is good news and her mummy and daddy also bought her a cycling jersey. She sent me some pictures, she looks very smart. Emily was also very busy on VE Day and she made a huge flag which she put up in her window. Did any of you make flags and bunting too for VE Day?

Monday 11th May 2020

Good morning year 1

It's the start of another new week.

I hope you had a lovely weekend. Did you celebrate VE Day? What did you do?

 

Here is your EMA

Here are some quick activities for you to do. Before you start read the tips and then have a go at answering the questions below.

 

Grammar and punctuation: Here is a tip to help you. Singular means only one, plural means more than one. To make words plural we can either add –s or –es. The rule is as follows:

When you make a word plural you add either an “s” or “es” as an ending. ... If the word ends with ch, sh, s, x, or z, use es to make it plural.

 

A prefix is a group of letters that go at the beginning of a word to change it’s meaning. The prefix –un changes the word so it means the opposite.

The rest of the activities you should be able to do by yourself. Write the answers in your blue book.

 

 

1. Write the plural of each word by adding s or es:
 flower _______________
 box _______________
 girl _______________


2. Add the un- prefix to the words below:
 ____zip.
 _____happy.
Can you write a sentence using the un- word?


Help Sara to un jumble the words below.
taf _______________
hact _______________
amt _______________

 


1. There are 4 candles on each cake.
There are 3 cakes.
How many candles are there altogether? _____  


2. Look at the repeating patterns below.
 What comes next?

noyesnoyesno

Arithmetic
1. 15 + 4 =
2. 12 - 8 =
3. Double  5 =

Here is your activity for today.

When I was in school on Friday, you’ll never guess what I saw. The fairy door is still in our classroom. That means they must still be there!  I bet they are wondering where you all are and why the classroom is so quiet. I am sure they would love it if you wrote them a letter telling them about all the things you have been doing whilst you have been in lock down. Remember your capital letters and full stops, finger spaces and to form and join your letters correctly. If you ask the fairy a question then remember to put a question mark at the end.

 

Here is your EAA

 

Have a look at this Picture Hunt. If you go outside for a walk today, have a look and see which of these items you can find. The number on each picture shows you how many points you get for finding each item. Keep score as you go along and then work out your total at the end. You might find more than one of each picture. Count up your score carefully. You could make a tally chart whist you are out and then add up your score when you get home. Have fun!

 

You might want to take your own pictures whilst you are on a walk and make a picture hunt of your own. You could send me your hunt and maybe we can see if the rest of the class can find the items and add up their scores. laughyes

 

Picture Hunt

Summer Term 1 Week 3

 

Friday 8th May 2020

Good morning Year 1

Today commemorates 75 years of the celebration of VE day a very special day in History. 75 years ago, this day was made a public holiday and a day of celebration to mark the defeat of Germany by the allied forces during the Second World War.

With your grown up, have a look at the VE Day document below. Find out some information about VE Day.

There are some tasks on the slides for you to have a go at.

You could also make and decorate some bunting to hang around the house. You could make your own Union Jack flag to wave in celebration.

You could design and even make a special party meal to celebrate.

You could make up your own dance to celebrate the happy occasion.

You could pretend you are Winston Churchill (The Prime minister at the time) announcing the news to the nation. What would you say to the people of Britain?

There is no EMA or EAA today as it is Bank holiday but I thought you might like to have a go at some of these activities with your family. I will be doing some with the children I am looking after in school today.

But first, lets get moving!

Click on the link below and join in with the dance through the ages. Have fun! laugh

Here is your EMA

 

Today we are going to be scientists and look at the weather. Click on the link below to watch the short video about weather.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uo8lbeVVb4M

Have a go at making your own weather journal like in the video. You will need to look at the weather each day.

Here is a song about the weather you might want to listen to.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rD6FRDd9Hew

Here is your activity for today.

 

Do you know which season we are in at the minute?

Look at trees, plants and animals. What can you see and hear?

How are the things you see and hear different in winter?

What about the weather how has that changed since the winter?

 

Use your weather journal from your EMA and add to it each day to help you find out the following information.

 

- Set up a daily weather chart to record when it rains and when it is dry.

At the end of each week, make a tally and compare.

How many dry sunny days were there?

How many rainy days were there?

Were there any days when it was sunny or rainy all day?

Were there any days when it was both sunny and rainy?

How warm has it been on each day?

Have you had to wear different clothes because of the weather each day?

 

Can you think of another fun way to show the information? – Get thinking.

Good afternoon Year 1.

Here is your EAA

 

Click on the link below, it will take you to the Hit The Button page. Click on number bonds, up to 100 and then make 100 (tens).

Good morning Year 1. I hope you are all ok this morning, it's another lovely sunny day.

I had an email from Emily yesterday. She had to go to the Panda unit this week! Poor Emily fell off her bike onto the road. Luckily she was wearing her helmet which protected her head. She cut her lip and her chin but luckily didn't break any bones and because she was wearing her helmet, she protected her head. Luckily Emily is on the mend, she said her lip has started to go down already and she is starting to feel much better. There is an important message here to the rest of you, make sure like Emily, you always wear your helmet when you ride your bike to protect your head.

 

Poor Emily

Here is your EMA for today.

Today we are going to do some more work with money.

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

Watch this video clip, now have a go at doing the same activity, get your grown up to help you to draw the chart if you need them to. You can carry on with the activity using different amounts.  Have fun and explore with the coins to see what values you can make.

 

Here is your activity for today.

 

Do you have a baking tray like this in your kitchen? If not you could use an empty egg box or just put the cards into piles on the floor. On the pieces of paper, write an amount of money, you can use the ones in the picture or make up your own. You might want to ask your grown up to do this for you.

Now using real money, toy money or money you have made, can you count out the coins and count the right amount into each section of the tray? You can play this a few times and change the amounts on the paper in each section. If you keep the pieces of paper somewhere safe then you can play this game again another time.

Here are some more pictures from Emily and Scarlett-Rose

Good afternoon Year 1. I hope you are having a good day so far.

Here is your EAA. Click on the document below to see the activity. Have a go at drawing the clocks (you might want to ask a grown up to help you do this) and then answer each question in your blue book.

Friday 1st May 2020

Good morning Year 1.

Here is your EMA

 

This morning we are going to be doing some more work with money. How did you get on yesterday, did you make your own set of toy coins? If not, then that is something you could do today. Draw round some coins, colour them in, write the amount on them and then cut them out. Remember to keep them somewhere safe once you have finished.

Watch the story on the video clip below. Hassan goes to the shop.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-d5n3ltpwg

With your toy money or real money can you show how many different ways you can make 5p, what coins could you use? How can you make 10p, what coins could you use? How many different ways can you make 15p?

Do some investigating with the money and see what else you can find out. Write the answers in your blue book, you could draw round the coins or draw pictures of the coins if you want to. Have fun!

 

Here is your activity for today.

Write a story similar to Jack and the Beanstalk. You can make up the characters, what are they like? Where do they live? What problem do they have and how do they overcome the problem? How does your story end? Remember to start your sentences with capital letters and end with a full stop unless it is a question. Remember your finger spaces and to form your letters correctly to make your handwriting as neat as possible.

 

Good afternoon Year 1

I hope you have had a lovely morning. How did you get on with your money work and your stories?

It’s Fun Time Friday, so let’s end the week with a song. This song is very appropriate especially during this time that we are facing, although we should always find time to share a little kindness.

A Little Bit Of Kindness

Click on the link below to hear the song and have a go at singing along, it is very catchy. I’ve been singing it all morning!

Good morning Year 1.

I am sure you are all missing your friends and would like to see what some of them have been up to since school closed so here are some pictures that they have sent to me that I thought I would share with you. It really makes me happy when I receive emails and pictures from you, showing me all the things you have been doing. I miss you all lots. Enjoy looking through the photos.

Today I would like you to have a go at making your own beanstalk. How tall can you make it? What materials will you use to make it with? Make leaves to stick onto your beanstalk. On each leaf I want you to write one of your tricky High Frequency words, or some tricky phonemes, some tricky number bonds or some words that you find tricky to spell. Stick your leaves onto your beanstalk. You can then look at your beanstalk every day and practise saying the tricky things that you have written on each leaf. Take a picture of your beanstalk once you have finished making it, I would love to see it. Have fun! laugh

 

Good afternoon Year 1. I hope you all had a good morning.

Watch the video clip below which is about money.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs8F_g3MGtM

First put them into piles so that you have all the 10ps together, all the 20p’s together etc. Have a go at drawing round some of the coins. You could make your own toy money. This will be useful for some activities that we will be doing in the future.

Good morning Year 1.

I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

I had a lovely email from Jonah last night. He has been very busy doing his school work and also lots of fun activities outside in the garden making the most of the great weather we have had. Jonah - you have been so busy, washing the car, making a drum set out of the pots and pans, being and elf in training (I love the outfit and the purple hair in one of your photos) You must have had to stand very still for that butterfly to land on you, butterflies are so beautiful and to have one land on you is very special. Emily told me that she had a white one land on her last week! laugh Keep up the great work Jonah. It was lovely to see your photos. I have put them below so that your friends can see what you have been up to.

I know that some of you have also sent me pictures over the last few weeks so I will put those on the website as soon as I can so you can all see the things that your friends have been up to as well. laughyesheart

This morning we are going to practise our phonics. Click on the link below. Ask a grown up to log on to the site for you. The log in details are on the phonics play page on the link below. Log in on the left hand side.

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

Once you are logged in then click on the phase 5 tab on the left hand side. The click on the box that says Flashcards Time challenge, then click on phase 5a and then click the 1 minute challenge. Just like we do in class, you need to say each sound, if you are right then you can click the tick. See how many you can get right and make a note of the time it took you. Play this a few times to try and beat your score and get quicker each time.

 

Here is today's activity

 

Here are some times tables wheels for the 2 times table (counting in 2's) If you are bale to print them out at home then you can. If not, don't worry you can ask a grown up to draw them out for you. The number in the middle is always 2. Look at the number next to it, and work out that many lots of 2. For example if the number next to the 2 was a 3 then you need to work out 3 lots of 2 and write the answer in the space on the wheel. There are a few different sheets for you to try if you have mastered the first one, the rest get more tricky as they go along. Look carefully because some times on the tricky sheets the answer is already there and you have to work out how many lots of 2 make that answer. Start with the first sheet, have a go and see how you get on. laugh

 

Good afternoon Year 1

Sorry for the delay with your EAA, there was an issue with the website but thankfully it is all sorted now. How are you? I hope you have had a good morning.

I hope you have had a lovely weekend and have been enjoying the sunshine.

Here is your EMA

 

Time to wake up and get moving. Today we are going to practise counting in 10’s all the way to 120.

Click on the link below and join in with the video. You should do the video a few times, join in with the actions and shout out the answers until you are super confident and getting all the answers right.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFP6JwOWrlg

Now count from 10 to 120 in jumps of 10 and write the answers in your blue book.

 

Here is your activity for today.

 

Do you remember before Easter a few weeks ago, one of your activities was to make your own phonics flash cards? If you made them, do you still have them? If you do, a big well done, look after them as you can use them to practise every day. If you haven’t got any you can make your own set, you could use paper or card, maybe from an old cereal box.

On each card you need to write one of the following: (make them nice and big like the ones we use in class.)

 j   v   w   x   y   z   zz   qu   ch   sh   th   ng   ai   ee   igh   oa   oo   ar   or   ur   ow   oi  ear   air   ure   er   ay   oy   wh   a_e   ou   ir   ph   e_e   ie   ue   ew   i_e   ea   aw  oe  o_e   au   u_e  

 

Phew that’s a lot of phonics sounds isn’t it? You should have 44 cards altogether. Can you spot the split diagraphs?

Once you have made you flashcards, have a go at saying all the sounds. Put them into 2 piles, one pile for the sounds you know really well and another pile for the sounds you find a bit tricky and need to practise.

Remember to keep practising your phonics every day, especially the ones you found more tricky until you know them all really well.

 

Why not become the teacher, line up all your teddies or toys and have your own phonics lesson with them. You could even ask mummy and daddy to join in! Keep your phonics flashcards in a safe place so that you can use them every day.

 

Pick a sound – how many things around your home can you find with this sound? Is the sound at the beginning, middle or end of the word? How many words can you think of with this sound? Write a list of as many words as you can that have this sound in. Write some silly sentences using these words.

Now do the same with a different sound. Have fun! smiley

 

Good afternoon Year 1

I hope you enjoyed doing your activities this morning.

Here is your EAA

Look at the number at the top and then click on the number you need to add to it to make 10. Remember you are being timed so go as quick as you can. Play this game a few times and see if you can beat your score. What is your quickest time?

Now in your blue book write down all the number bonds that make 10.

Now have a go at making 20 in the same way.

As this is a very strange time and a time that will go down in history, as a school we have decided to all start to write a diary. You can write about the things that are happening, the things that have had to change for now and the way you are feeling. I started my diary this week and wrote 9 pages on the first day! You can write and draw pictures and maybe even take photographs to stick in. In Years to come we can look back on it and think, Wow! we were so strong to get through this.  Remember to keep in touch via the school email address. Keep safe and keep smiling, you are all doing a great job! laughyes heart

You will need a pack of playing cards for this. If you don’t have any playing cards, you could make your own number cards. Watch the video and then have a go at playing the game. Can you teach it to your mummy and daddy, brothers and sisters?

Challenge: Make the total add up to 20 instead of 10.

Can you think of any other number games you could play using the cards? You could make up your own and write instructions for them. You could teach me when we get back to school!

Today we are going to do some subtraction (take away). You might need your grown ups to help you draw some number lines like yesterday. Draw a number line from 1 to 20. Circle the first number, that's the number you start with. This time, because we are taking away, we need to jump to the left to make our answer smaller. Have a go at these questions.

1. 20-3 =          6. 2-2 =

2. 9-3 =           7. 3-1 =

3. 18-2 =          8. 11-8 =

4. 10-6 =          9. 15-3 =

5. 7-3 =           10. 6-1 =

I will give you the answers this afternoon.

Good morning Year 1.

I hope you had a good weekend with your families and you are all ready for some more activities to try and keep you busy. Remember to say a big thank you to the grownups that are helping you with your home learning.

 

EMA

This morning I would like you to find the phonics activity booklet from you school packs. 

Your first challenge is to find pages 1 and 2! The pages are all muddled up for some reason. surprise

Please complete pages 1 and 2. ( Here's a clue to finding them, one might be at the front of the booklet and one might be at the back!)

 

ACTIVITY

Write some sentences which include the words from the phonics pages you have just done. Remember to put your capital letters and full stops. Remember your finger spaces and correct letter formation.

 

Good afternoon Year 1

How did you get on with your phonics this morning?

Here's your EAA

Draw a number line from 0 to 15, use it to help you to work out these questions. Remember to circle the first number on the numberline and then jump the number that you are adding one jump at a time. I will give you the answers tomorrow morning. You might find it easier to draw a number kine for each question, maybe your grown ups can help you with this!

1. 5+3=         6. 7+6=

2. 8+3=         7. 8+4=

3. 6+6=         8. 9+6=

4. 4+5=         9. 3+9=

5. 4+7=        10. 2+10=

 

Afternoon activity - This one will keep you busy!

 

Make your own set of phonics flashcards, you could use paper or card, maybe from an old cereal box?

On each card you need to write one of the following: (make them nice and big like the ones we use in class.)

j  v  w  x  y  z  zz  qu  ch  sh  th  ng  ai  ee  igh  oa  oo  ar  or  ur  ow  oi  ear  air  ure  er  ay  oy  wh  a_e  ou  ir  ph  e_e  ie  ue  ew  i_e  ea  aw  oe  o_e  au  u_e

Phew, that's a lot of phonics sounds isn't it! Can you spot the split diagraphs?

Once you have made your flashcards have a go at saying all the sounds. Put them into 2 piles, one pile for the sounds you know really well and another pile for the sounds you find a bit tricky and need to practise. Remember to keep practising your phonics every day, especially the ones you fond more tricky until you know them all really well.

Why not become the teacher, line up your teddies or other toys and have your own phonics lesson with them. You could even ask mummy and daddy to join in!

Keep your phonics flash cards in a safe place so that you can use them every day.

Have fun!
