Hello children! How are you? We hope you are keeping well and happy and busy!
Here are some ideas for you to have a go at this week:
The Power Maths home learning books will continue to be supported by 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.
This week’s NRich task can be found here. Both activities are focussed on capacity and exploring this together through different means.
Phonics for Y1. There are some excellent videos for teaching phonics here. They are available daily from 9.30 a.m. for 24 hours. Set 2 revisits sounds and spellings that Y1 have covered. Set 3 is mostly new learning. There are two Set 3 videos. One teaches a new sound and the other practises spelling with that sound. There are also videos to practise reading ' Longer words' and 'Red words' on the right hand side of the web page.
Year 1 will use the Oak National Academy materials Week 6 English, and the focus this week is poetry. There are phonics, spellings and activities linked to the text each day. You’ll only need paper and pencil to take part for the lessons tooThese lessons are best followed in sequence, starting with Lesson 1.
There is a spelling quiz and a phonics activity for you on Purple Mash.
Write a diary for your favourite days in the week. There is a diary set up in your Purple Mash 2Dos. You can draw a picture or add a photo and write at least five sentences about what you did. If you tap on the green tick at the top right hand corner, there is a writing checklist and on the left, some prompts to help you along.
Practise handwriting everyday, using cursive joins please.
There are some reading comprehensions for you here.
If your child would like to try a different variety for English please take a look at the BBC Bitesize lessons per day for English here.
Identifying and sorting animals
By the end of this lesson you should be able to say :
I can identify and name a variety of common animals including, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds
I can suggest how to sort animals into groups.
Ask your child about their favourite animal and make a list of about 10.
Recap the main animal groups fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals ,by watching the presentation below. Then decide which group the animals on the list belong to.
Then sort the animals into groups, for example mammals, not mammals or fur and no fur. Ask the children to say how they sorted them into groups, using the features of animals in that group to explain – warm blooded, fur, smooth skin, lives on land / water, lays eggs etc
Complete the Animal Classification quiz in your 2Dos on Purple Mash.
Learn about Ramadan and its importance for Muslims here
Details of a national art competition with an RE focus can be found here.
