Year 1: Maple, Pine

Monday 13th July

 

We hope you all enjoyed last week’s learning whether it was in school or at home. Worksheets from last week, along with the week’s update (saved as a PDF) can be found in our archive section below, in case you wish to return to anything. Our current week’s update is also saved in the ‘Weekly Update PDFs’ section, just above our archive. You may wish to print this out to help you work through the tasks. All of the documents from last week can be found below.

 

This week, your child will receive their final telephone call which will be made by their class teacher. We look forward to speaking with all children in our classes at some point during the week.

 

In-School Provision for Green and Yellow Bubbles 

The learning set for home will be the same as school.  As some pupils may not be in every day, here is a timetable stating which subjects/lessons we hope to teach on each day. Please make sure you follow this guide when organising your days at home as we don’t want children repeating any lessons.  Due to school closure on Fridays, we have made sure this day has a lot of learning that we can’t complete in school, so it would be best not to do this on any other day.  Please be aware plans can sometimes change!  We will let you know if this happens via email or text.

 

If you are continuing to educate your child solely at home, you do not need to follow this timetable.

When the children are in school during this period, we are unable to use our colour banded books and reading 1:1 with children involves getting too close! We recommend that you still try to read as often as possible when your child is at home using the websites below or any books you have at home.

Happy Birthday to You!

 

Happy birthday to Max who celebrates his birthday this week. We hope you have a fantastic day. J

 

Below is the Year 1 work for this week.

 

English

This week, we will be writing our own recounts by keeping a daily diary of our week. It may help if you take some photographs each day to remind your child of things they have done.

 

Day 1 - Time openers bingo:

Ask your child if they can remember any time openers. Use the time openers word mat (saved below) to help if they get stuck.

- Each player must write down three time openers.

- Adult to make some time openers cards to use for ‘calling’. You could use the example saved below or simply write a selection of time openers on post-it notes. Put these in a pot or bag.

- One person is the ‘caller’ and must pick out a card from the pot or bag. If a player has that time openers, they must cross it off and use the word in a sentence (verbally). The first person to use and cross out all three words is the winner!

 

Days 2, 3 & 4 – Diary writing:

Using time openers, can your child write a short diary of things they have done each day. You may wish to do this at the end of each day or you could get your child to do this each morning for the previous day. Each day, less confident writers should manage to write 2 sentences (or finish 2 sentences started by an adult), good writers should manage 3-4 sentences and the most confident writers should be able to write more than 4 sentences. It is very important that you encourage your child to use correct punctuation when they are writing more than one sentence. Several examples of one day’s worth of diary writing are saved below to help guide your expectations.

 

Day 5 – Handwriting practice:

ch, lp, mp

Videos and activity sheets are saved below. If you cannot print, please copy the join into your child’s book for them to copy out.

Phonics and Spelling

Please see the table below for our lessons this week and the spellings that link to these. This new learning is what we will be doing with the children in school and so it is important that you try to complete these sessions during the week so that your child doesn’t fall too far behind.

 

 

Revisit and review (5mins max)

Word lists

Monday

 

adding -ing to verbs

 

Revise 5-10 sounds using flashcards or post-it notes. Focus on sounds your child finds difficult.

Look through the PowerPoint below to practise reading and saying words with the ‘ing’ suffix.

In Year 1, we only teach adding ‘ing’ to words where the root word does not change (ie. jump à jumping)

Practise using the ‘ing’ suffix by writing some sentences using ‘ing’ words. You could use the activity sheet below.

jumping

growing

singing

playing

crying

helping

flying

trying

Tuesday

Adding -ed to verbs

 

 

Revise 5-10 sounds using flashcards or post-it notes. Focus on sounds your child finds difficult.

d - sailed, or id - hunted)

Sort ‘ed’ words according to the sound they make when you read them aloud. You may need to read your words aloud to your child to help them to hear the sounds. An example sheet is available below.

mixed

yelled

hunted

burned

 

Wednesday

Maths

This week, we are focusing on ‘counting to 100’. We are currently working within the week entitled ‘22nd June’ on White Rose.

Day 1: Lesson 1 - Counting to 100

Please watch the White Rose video then try our fluency activity and OR the White Rose activity sheet. Try our challenge activity below if your child has mastered the fluency confidently.

Video link: https://vimeo.com/430314213

Fluency activity – Start by listening and singing along to this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0dJWfQHF8Y

Teach children how to locate numbers on a number square (see attached). Show them where to look for the tens column. Play a quick fire game. Tell them to point to a 2-digit number, then another and another. How many can they point to in 1 minute? Try again, can you beat your score?

Challenge activity- Play ‘Guess My Number’.

The child thinks of a number to 100. The adult asks ‘yes/no’ questions to try to find out the number they are thinking of. See an example list of questions to ask below. Once the child has experienced you asking the questions, the adult then thinks of the number and the child has to find out the secret number by asking similar questions. Have a number square in front of them (see attached) so they can cross off numbers they know it can’t be.

Questions –

  • Does your number have ….tens?
  • Does your number have….ones?
  • Is your number an odd number?
  • Is your number an even number?
  • Is your number more than….?
  • Is your number less than….?

 

Day 2: Lesson 2 – Partitioning numbers

 

Please watch the White Rose video then try our fluency activity and OR the White Rose activity sheet. Try our challenge problem attached below if your child has mastered the fluency confidently.

Video link: https://vimeo.com/430317914

Fluency activity – Play the game ‘shark numbers’ using the link below.

http://www.ictgames.com/sharkNumbers/mobile/

Go for a walk and record five 2-digit house numbers that you see onto a piece of paper. Try to select some numbers with different amounts of tens. It doesn’t matter if two of the numbers chosen have the same amount of tens as this is a good talking point later. Return home and talk about how many tens and ones are in each number. Use the attached tens and ones to cut and stick the correct amount next to each house number written down. Discuss the greatest and smallest number. Why is this number greater than this number if they have the same amount of tens? Explain if a number has the same amount of tens then we look to the ones to see which is greater.

Challenge activity - Please see the attached document below.

 

Day 3: Lesson 3 – Comparing numbers

 

Please watch the White Rose video then try our fluency activity and OR the White Rose activity sheet. Try our challenge problem attached below if your child has mastered the fluency confidently.

Video link: https://vimeo.com/430320026

Fluency Activities: On a hundred square (attached below) find a number that is less than 69, a number that is greater than 79 and a number that is greater than 69 but less than 79. Repeat for different numbers.

Choose 2 different 2-digit numbers. Which is the greatest? How do you know? (Think about the number of tens and ones in each number). Repeat using different numbers.

Challenge Activity: Please see the attached document below.

 

Day 4: Lesson 4 – Comparing numbers (2)

 

Please watch the White Rose video then try our fluency activity and OR the White Rose activity sheet. Try our challenge problem attached below if your child has mastered the fluency confidently.

Video link:  https://vimeo.com/430313386

Fluency Activity: On individual blank pieces of paper, write out the digits 1-9 twice. Use these to make two piles of number cards 1-9. Shuffle each pile. Turn over the top card from each pile to make a 2-digit number. Write the number down. Repeat the process to create another 2-digit number. Write this number down next to first number, leaving a space between the two. Use the greater than (>), less than (<) and equal to (=) symbols to compare the two numbers. Repeat with different numbers to practise. An example is saved below.

Challenge Activity: Please see the attached document below.

 

Day 5: Please have a go at the White Rose Friday challenge attached below. Also repeat any of the games and the songs from the week. Repetition of activities is important in remembering what has been taught.

 

‘3 in 3’: Please find this week’s ‘3 in 3’ in the document saved below.

 

PE

Science

This week, we would like you to focus on the sense of touch. Ask your child if they can remember the body part that they use to touch. Remind them that we touch with our skin.

Play ‘What’s in the Box?’

Using a cardboard box or a drawstring bag, take it in turns with a family member to put something inside. The other person must feel what is in the box/bag and guess what it is. You could also try using your feet to feel the item and see if it is easier or harder to tell what it is. You may wish to record this activity using the sheet saved below.

Science Documents

Computing

This week, we would like children to experiment with some touch typing games if they have access to a laptop or desktop computer. The following links provide different games which the children can choose from.

 

https://www.typinggames.zone/letter-trucks

 

https://www.typingclub.com/sportal/program-3.game.

 

https://www.typinggames.zone/ducky-trouble

 

If you have a mobile or tablet and these games don’t work, your child could challenge themselves to see how many common exception words they can type in a minute, using the ‘notes’ app of your tablet or smart phone.

 

PSHE

Being bored is a normal feeling to have, especially as we are spending a lot more time at home! It’s important to have ideas of ways to help yourself when you are feeling this way;

 

  • Individually, on pieces of paper, write down activities that you can do, games you like to play, jobs you can help with, places you can visit and toys you like to play with. Then individually fold each one up and place them into a bag/container/jar.
  • Every evening, with an adult, take 2 or 3 pieces of paper out and plan to carry out these activities the next day.

 

This will help fill your day with exciting activities, and you can go to bed knowing what you have planned the following day.

The National Trust have a list of activities to have a go at - https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/50-things-to-do

This website has a great list of stories to listen to: https://www.worldbookday.com/storytime-online/

Optional Extras

1. Continue to explore Classroom Secrets for additional games and activities.

2. Wednesday 15th July is Saint Swithin’s Day. It is believed that the weather on this day will be repeated for the next 40 days!

“St Swithins Day if thou dost rain for forty days it will remain,

“St Swithins Day if thou be fair for forty days ‘twill rain rae mare”

- Find out more http://www.mindfulmum.co.uk/fun/2012/st-swithins-day-for-kids/

3. Make your very own rain cloud! https://www.science-sparks.com/rain-cloud-in-a-jar/

Even on a sunny day you can make it rain!

 

We look forward to hearing from you via email on Friday and hope you enjoy this week’s learning activities.

Please note – this Friday will be the final email we expect from parents about home learning. Thank you for your efforts to inform us of the work your child has completed each week.  We have kept it all as a record of children’s work through this period of time.
