4th May to 8th May Weekly update Y1
How are you all? It is such a long time since we saw each other isn’t it? We really hope that you and your families are staying safe and well.
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. Attached to the bottom of this update is a ‘How to Guide’ which is really simple to follow. Work uploaded to Purple Mash can be commented on to help you move your learning forwards but can still be shared to the Display Boards in Purple Mash too.
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 an answer questions but there will be no more free worksheets. You should have access to the Power Maths Summer Home Learning Ebook if you go to our Maths page or you can order a paper copy to be delivered to your home address if you haven’t ordered one at the reduced price through school to collect as soon as they are delivered.
This week’s NRich task can be found here. It is suitable for both Year 1 and Reception as the memory game is also a great tool for teaching Mathematical thinking. There’s also a new extra task card for the Y1 at the bottom of the Maths page.
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 2 English. The lessons are based on the story of a girl called Katie who goes to London and there is one task each day. You’ll only need paper and pencil to take part for the lessons. The sessions are best followed in sequence, starting with the Monday lesson.
Practise handwriting everyday, using cursive joins please.
This week we are beginning to learn about 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 and send it as an email in 2Email. 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 we would like you to think about the Christian Value ‘ Service’. You can find an activity sheet on our website which will explain the value and give you some activity ideas. Make a service snail and complete it for your family. There is a story and activity ideas for service here and here. Please post it on the blog or upload it to Purple Mash ‘My Work’.
