11th May to 15th May Weekly update Y1
Hi to you all!
We are really enjoying looking at all the work you have been sending us and seeing what you are getting up to on the school website blog!
You can also ‘upload’ pictures of your work for comment and rewards to Purple Mash. Send us an email in Purple Mash when you have done this to let us know.
Here are a few suggestions for activities you may want to follow along with this week:
White Rose are now working with BBC Bitesize to share their online content for Maths – there will be more chances to pause and answer questions on the videos but there will be no more free worksheets. There’s further information about how to access the Summer Home learning book on our Maths page.
This week’s NRich task can be found here. It is suitable for both Year 1 and Reception with support.
Phonics for Y1. There are some excellent videos for teaching phonics here. Set 2 will be revisiting the learning of sounds and spellings we already know. Set 3 is new learning and spelling with this sound and is shown at 10.30 a.m.
Year 1 will use the Oak Academy materials Week 3 English, and they are focussed on the story of George and the Dragon, and will share the story and there will be one task each day. You’ll only need paper and pencil to take part for the lessons too. These lessons are best followed in sequence, starting with the Monday lesson.
Practise handwriting everyday, using cursive joins please.
Here are some short texts with questions for your child to answer. Please do not print the sheets, but answer these on paper and photograph and upload to Purple Mash. The children do not need to read the texts independently, but can listen to them being read. You can write the answers for the children too if you wish.
The comprehensions, which are often at a level beyond that at which they can read independently, will develop a range of skills:
This week we are sorting food by using our senses. Look here on our website.
Play Dinosaur Discovery on BBC Bitesize.
Please then make a fact file about a dinosaur, choosing from : Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Stegosaurus and Diplodicus. There is a fact file set up for you in Purple Mash 2Dos or you can make your own on paper and post them on the Blog or take a photo and upload it to Purple Mash in ‘My Work’ straight from your computer or pad. Think about what the dinosaur looks like, its size, what it eats, where it lived and see if you can find out a fun fact.
Further the children’s thinking and ask; Why do you think this dinosaur has a long neck/tail? Why has that dinosaur only got small arms? Dinosaurs are a type of animal. Can you name any other type of animal? What about humans? Tell the children that humans are classed as animals.
This week’s lesson is all about Hope and looks at how a rainbow is used as a message of hope to Noah and his family. You can find an activity sheet on our website here. Please post it on the blog or upload your rainbows to Purple Mash.
This week's sport focus is netball. Click here to find the activities linked to football you can have a go at home with this week, including a daily challenge. Why not post a blog about this? We'd love to hear how you're staying active!
