18th May to 22nd May Weekly update Y1
Another week has gone by – did it fly or has it been a slow one? I really hope it flew by because you have been so busy and having fun.
Here are some ideas for you to have a go at this week:
The Power Maths home learning books arrived last week and are supported by the White Rose and Bitesize materials which are also available if you are not using the book. You can still get plenty of ideas and questions from these places instead.
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 National Academy materials Week 4 English, and they are focussed on the story of The Tiger who came to Tea, with phonics, spellings and activities linked to the story 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.
Have a go at a reading comprehension here
There is a spelling quiz for you on Purple Mash.
Practise handwriting everyday, using cursive joins please.
This week you are going to be sense explorers. Look here on our website.
How do we know about dinosaurs?
In this lesson the children will learn about how we found out about dinosaurs.
There are 3 books allocated in Activelearn for this lesson which will help the children to learn more facts. These are: Dinosaurs and Fossils. These books are too advanced for your child to read so please read to them or set the program to read to the children. They will benefit from hearing a short section over a period of days. There is also a presentation about the life of Mary Anning. See the bottom of the page. The books and the presentation will give them the answer to the question.
Complete a fossil fact file in your 2Dos on Purple Mash
Make fossils, as suggested on page 26, or make an ice fossil like on page 14. Have fun!
At the end of the lesson your child:
Should be able to say what a fossil is and what we can learn from them;
Or, even better, your child could be able to say how a fossil is made and tell you about Mary Anning.
This week we are learning about churches.
You can look inside a church here
Then watch this video and take a tour of the church.
This week's focus sport is here.Why not post a blog about this? We'd love to hear how you're staying active!
