Feedback

We hope the children are enjoying their video feedback. Please keep sending your work in using the Google form  https://forms.gle/pSNNSy1oZq1FNXTy7 Please don’t submit more than four pieces of work each week.

Phonics

Everyone is welcome to join in with our daily live phonics lessons at 9.15am on Google Meet.

Here are the PowerPoint slides for Monday and Tuesday if you would like to access them from home:

On Monday will be revising all Phase 3 phonemes. Can you read all of these phonemes? Can you spot any of these phonemes in your reading books?

Here is a Phase 3 video to watch!

There is also a phase 3 roll and read game to play included in your pack:

On Tuesday will be revising all phase 4 phonemes. Can you read all of the words with the phase 4 phonemes in? Why not try to put some of these words into a silly sentence!

Here is a phase 4 video to watch!

There is also a phase 4 four in a row game to play included in your pack:

English

This week we are learning all about right choice words. These are words that we use in our writing to make it more interesting. They are also called adjectives.

Watch this short video to find out more…

Now listen to this fun story about a mole who loves labelling objects!

Can you label lots of adjectives like mole? In your pack there are some post it notes. Look for objects around your house and label them using right choice words. Have fun!

In your pack there is also an Amazing Adjectives sheet. You need to cut out each object and then write some adjectives to describe it.

Here is an example:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Capture-12.gif

Extension task:

Can you write a sentence about each object?

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Capture-14.gif

Finally, you could look around your house for objects to describe. You could take a photo or draw a picture and then write some adjectives or sentences.

Here is the success criteria for this task:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Capture-10-300x207.gif

Join Mrs Kumar at 10.15am on Monday to find out more about right choice words.

Maths

Monday’s lesson

Let’s get our brains ready, answer these questions:

Let’s remind ourselves of how we can add 2 numbers together by making 10.

Use your tens frame from your first pack.

Tuesday’s lesson

Let’s get thinking about numbers…

Let’s see if you can work out 8 + 6 by making 10 first, no peeking at the answer first!

Now try 7 + 7.

Now answer question 3 on the ‘Add by making 10’ worksheet.

Mrs Broadhead will be teaching a maths google lesson at 10.15am on Tuesday.

Art

This week we are being creative with circles and dots. First listen to the story of The Dot…

Now have fun being creative. In your pack there is a paper plate that you could use for your art work. You could paint dots on it, draw dots, print circles or cut out circles. Here are some that we made in school last year…

Mrs Kumar will be reading the story and talking about this art activity at 1.15pm on Monday.

You might enjoy listening to this song whilst you are being creative…

Thank you

We raised £360 on our red day for the CHSF. Thank you for your kind donations.

Have a great two days and we will blog again on Wednesday.

Here is a funny Winnie the Witch story for you to enjoy. They are in lockdown too. Click on the link.

Maths

Well done on working so hard this week. This is your final maths lesson of the week.

How can you work out the answers to these questions? Maybe use objects or a number line.

Can you answer these questions? You choose which colour you do, can you challenge yourself?

Watch out for the symbols, they keep changing!

Why not have a try at the challenges below. Explain your answers to a grown up.

You will need to remember what < and > for Challenge 1. Here is a reminder…

Mathletics

We have got our first gold Mathletics certificate in Year 1! Fantastic!

Red fun!

Thank you for all your generous donations for the Children’s Heart Fund based at the LGI. Two of our Year 1 families have been supported by this great organisation. Join our whole year group Google Meet at 1.15pm today to find out more.

How about joining a Zoom call to Shake, Rattle and BOOGIE? Friday 5th February from 3.15pm-4pm . All you need to do is click on the link below and fill in a form

Science

What do you know about your heart? How does it work? What is its job? Can you find out any interesting facts?

Can you get your heart working? Get active and see what happens to your body. Put your hand on your chest, can you feel your heart beating? Now do 20 star jumps and see what happens? Is your heart beating faster?

Another busy week…

Feedback

Well done Year 1 we have seen some brilliant work this week. We hope you have enjoyed your video feedback!! Keep sending your work in using the Google form –  https://forms.gle/pSNNSy1oZq1FNXTy7 Please don’t submit more than four pieces of work each week.

In Year 1 the children don’t need to spell all the words correctly. They know to use their phonemes to sound out e.g. hors for horse and climd for climbed. The only words that they need to spell correctly are the Year 1 tricky words – a copy was sent home in your packs.

Have a super weekend.

Good morning Year 1. This is what you need to do over the next two days…

  • Phonics – igh/ ie/ i-e phonemes and compound words
  • English – Write the middle and end of a story. Complete the I wonder task.
  • Maths – Addition – find the missing number/number bonds to 10 & 20
  • PHSE – Why am I unique?
  • Computing – Algorithms, giving specific instructions to move an object.

Phonics

Everyone is welcome to join in with our daily live phonics lessons at 9.15am on Google Meet. Here are the PowerPoint slides for Wednesday and Thursday if you would like to access them from home:

On Wednesday we are revising the i-e, ie and igh phonemes. They are spelt different but sound the same in words like life, pie and flight.

There is a phoneme spotter in your pack for you to complete. Read the text and highlight any words that have the ie/ i-e or igh phoneme in them. Here is a copy:

On Thursday we are looking at compound words. A compound word is when two or more smaller words join together to make a new word.

Can you work out and spell these compound words? Try to put each of the words into a sentence.

There is a fun compound word bingo game to play in your pack! Here is a copy:

English

Did you have fun falling into the snowy painting? Over the next two days you are going to use your plan to write the middle and end of your story. I have written the beginning for you…

Now you need to write the rest of the story. (You don’t need to copy my beginning out.) Use your plan to help you. Write on a lined page in your yellow book. Remember to miss a line in case you need to edit your work. Here is the success criteria for your work…

When you have finished read your story to a grown up. Does it make sense? Are you happy with it? Does it have a middle and an end? Do you need to improve it?

Here is an example from last year:

Feedback

If you would like to send us your story to read, please use this form: https://forms.gle/pSNNSy1oZq1FNXTy7 We are looking forward to reading them. Over the next few weeks we are trialling different ways of giving feedback. You might even get a recorded message!

Reading

On Thursday morning Mrs Galbraith will explain the ‘I wonder…’ task that is in your pack. Join the google meet at 10.15am to hear the beginning of the story about Solomon Crocodile.

You could also have a go at one of the comprehension activities from your pack. Remember everything you have learnt from the Reading Dogs.

Maths

You have all done so well with subtracting one number from another. Now it is to remind ourselves how to add two numbers together.

Wednesday’s math’s lesson

Now let’s get started with our quick fire questions…

Can you calculate the answer to this question? How many other ways can you write it?

Well done – 6 + 7 = 13, 7 + 6 = 13 and 13 = 6 + 7, 13 = 7 + 6. All the calculations are all the same even when they are in a different place.

The next calculation is in a part whole model. Can you use counters and/or the number line to calculate the answer?

Now we have a calculation which has a missing number. We know that adding another number to 12 will make 16, so let’s put our pen on number 12 and count how many jumps it takes us to reach number 16.

Good work 12 + 4 = 16
Can you try working out the missing number?
If you know the answer can you explain why to a grown up?

In your pack you have an addition sheet. You will one of either of the sheets shown below. This is to be completed by Thursday

Thursday’s math’s lesson

Can you remember the number bonds to 10? They will help you to learn the number bonds to 20.

We know the answer equals 20 on each side. So put your pen on the number 19 and see how many jumps it takes to reach 20. Yes, the missing number is 1.

If you haven’t already completed the questions given yesterday, see if you can complete them today.

PSHE

Do you know what the word unique means? It means that you are one of a kind and special. What makes you unique? Are you good at something? Do you have a favourite outfit to wear? Are you a good friend? Listen to the story of Elmer and see if he is unique…

Elmer worried about being different but in the end was happy with who he was. The lesson from the book is that if we are all the same then everything would be terribly boring. Being different is a good thing and differences are what makes things fun and interesting. On your sheet can you draw in the circle what makes you unique. It might be something you like to do or wear. Then you can complete the sentence “I am unique because…”

Join Mrs Galbraith at 1.15pm on Thursday to listen to the story and talk more about the task.

Computing

We have learnt that algorithms give us specific instructions to make or do something. You have given verbal instructions to get someone to move to another place or pick up and object and you have learnt how to give direct instructions to design and make a Mr Potato head.

Algorithms are so important if we are going to make or do something correctly. This week we are to use the programme 2Go in Purple Mash

First of all you need to log on to Purple Mash and in the search engine put 2Go. Now launch the app. Click on the right arrow to choose which background you would like.

Before you start we need to make sure you have the correct tools to use. Click on the grey wheel at the top – this is the settings button. We are using the left, right, up and down buttons.

Next you need to click the tab on this page which reads ‘general’. We are then going to choose allow programming (slide right) . This will allow you to select a number of instructions/directions to move your object.

You need to choose where you would like to move your object to. I chose to move the king to the house. Click the purple directional arrows on to your grid. Then press play to see if your object gets to where you wanted them to go. There are lots of different backgrounds to choose from. Have fun!

If you get stuck with any of the above there are video tutorials on the app which will explain everything.

Wearing red!

Thank you for all your donations for this great charity. We are looking forward to ‘seeing’ you all in red on Friday. You can still donate using ParentPay.

Have a great two days and we will blog again on Friday.

We hope you have had a lovely weekend. Here is a timetable of our online lessons this week…

This is what we are learning over the next two days…

  • Phonics –  oi/oy and e-e/ee/ea/ey phonemes
  • English – draw a story plan
  • Maths – subtraction, crossing 10
  • Art – create a sculpture
  • PE – ball skills using hands or feet

Phonics

Everyone is welcome to join in with our daily live phonics lessons at 9.15am on Google Meet. Here are the PowerPoint slides for Monday and Tuesday if you would like to access them from home:

On Monday we are revising the oi and oy phonemes. They are two different digraphs that make the same sound in words like boy and soil.

There is also a fun four in a row game included in your pack to play. Here is a copy:

On Tuesday we are revising the e-e, ee, ea and ey phonemes. They are different digraphs that make the same sound in words like concrete, teeth, sea, key.

There is also a fun roll and read game included in your pack to play. Here is a copy:

Can you read these real and alien words? Why not try to put one of these words into a silly sentence? Don’t forget to look out for Monday and Tuesday’s phonemes in your reading books!

English

Our work this week is based upon the story Katie’s Picture Show. Enjoy listening to the story read by the author…

Now you are going to use your imagination again. Look carefully at this painting. You are going to be like Katie and fall into it! Where did you land? On top of the green tower? Next to the snowman? What happened to you? What is the problem? Did someone throw a snowball at you? Did you fall over whilst skiing? Are you stuck in the snow? How did you escape out of the painting? Did you use the ladder? Fly on a bird? Ride on the horse?

Now you are going to plan your story. I have written the beginning of the story, so you are just planning the problem and resolution. In your pack there is a sheet for you to draw your story plan on. You don’t need to do any writing on this sheet. On the Wednesday blog post we will look at writing your story.

Maths

Monday

Let’s get our brains ready for some number work. Can you answer these quick fire questions…

We are continuing to practise subtracting one number from another by counting back to 10 using our number line.

Start at 19, how can you split the number 11? You can split it by going back to 10 and going back one more jump.

Have a go at this one…

This time we don’t know how many flowers were picked. So let’s look at what we do know.

Now you have practised some subtraction calculations you can now answer some questions. You may find you have different questions to answer.

The work set is for today AND tomorrow, so no need to rush.

Tuesday

Today is our last day of subtraction. You are doing so well. Let’s get our brains warmed up…

Don’t forget if you can split the number you are taking away up. So 12 is made up of 10 and 2. Can you count back to 10 and then back 2?

This time we know we start with 18 teddies and now we have 9 left so let’s write that down – 18 – ? = 9. Can you count how many jumps you need to do to get from 18 to 9?

You have nearly finished. Is the calculation below true or false? How do you know?

Art

This week we are learning about sculpture. This is when an artist creates a 3D piece of work. Look at these sculptures. What shapes and colours can you see? What materials have they used?

Gary Webb is a British artist. He uses lots of bright colours in his sculptures.

Can you be an artist and create a sculpture? Have a look around your house and garden. What could you use to make a sculpture in the style of Gary Webb? We are looking forward to seeing your amazing art!

PE

Over the last term we have been practising our ball skills using our hands and feet. This game could be played by either rolling a ball in between 2 markers or dribbling a ball with your feet through 2 markers. Perhaps you could have a competition in your house to see who can score the most!

A letter from the Queen!

Can you believe that we got a reply from the letters that we sent to the Queen. How exciting!

Have a great two days and we will blog again on Wednesday. In the meantime, if you would like to send us some work, please use this form: https://forms.gle/pSNNSy1oZq1FNXTy7

You have made it to Wednesday, keep up the good work! Here is what we have planned for the next 2 days…

  • Phonics – oa/ oe/ o-e and ear phonemes
  • English – Write a description of your fantasy setting. Complete the comprehension task from your pack.
  • Maths – Subtraction, crossing 10.
  • Science – Help another dinosaur!
  • Computing – Algorithms. Give specific instructions to make something.

Phonics

Everyone is welcome to join in with our daily live phonics lessons at 9.15am on Google Meet. Here are the PowerPoint slides for Wednesday and Thursday if you would like to access them from home:

On Wednesday we are revising the oa, o-e and oe phonemes. They are different digraphs that all make the same sound in words like boat, bone and toe.

There is a spelling activity in your pack for you to complete. Here is a copy:

On Thursday we are looking at the ear trigraph like in ‘hear‘ and ‘year‘.

There is a fun bingo game include in your pack. Here is a copy:

Can you read these real and alien words?

Why not try to put some of these words into a silly sentence? Here’s mine:

English

Over the next two days you are going to write a description of the fantasy setting that you drew and labelled behind your door.

I went under the sea and this is what I saw and wrote…

Here is an example from last year…

Now write your description on a lined page. Remember that we miss a line in case we need to edit or improve our work. Try and use some great adjectives, right choice words, in your writing. Here is the success criteria for your writing…

Reading and Comprehension

We hope you are doing lots of reading at home. Please let us know if you need more books on Bug Club. Have you completed the comprehension task from your pack?

Maths

We are continuing our subtraction learning, let’s get going…

Wednesday’s Lesson

One way we can subtract is to count back to 10 first. We can partition 8 to help us get back to 10.

Have a look at this calculation 15 – 7 = ? How could you partition the number 7?

We can do 5 jumps to get back to the number 10 and then go back 2 to make sure we are subtracting 7.

Let’s see if we can work out this calculation. There are 14 eggs in the box and 6 are left in. So we can write 14 – ? = 6. Use your number line to see how many jumps you do to get to number 6.

We should write 14 – 8 = 6

Use your number line to calculate the answer to this subtraction problem. Remember we know how many toys we started with and we know how many are left. 15 – ? = 5

Now you have had a practise see if you can complete Question 4 (page 21) in your White Rose Maths booklet.

Watch the video from 6.05 minutes to the end for support and additional practise on counting back to 10 first.

Thursday’s Lesson

Let’s get those brains thinking about maths, try these warm up questions.

Now let’s continue learning about subtraction. We have practised doing lots of subtraction calculations, now we need to look at worded problems and see if we can write the calculation.

What do you think you would write for this problem?

Can you practise writing the calculation for this word problem on your whiteboard and find the answer?

You would write 16 – 8 = 8. Kim has 8 cakes left.

Have a try at this problem:

Now complete Questions 1 to 4 on pages 22, 23 and 24.

Science

Your egg protectors were brilliant! Well done. Now another dinosaur needs your help…

Use all your knowledge about materials. What material is waterproof? What would keep him cosy and dry? You might want to test various materials before you make something. If you have any toy dinosaurs you could test various materials on them. Don’t get too wet!

This short video might help you remember which materials are waterproof.

Computing

Last week we started to learn about algorithms. We learnt that we need to give specific instructions otherwise we don’t get the end result we want. Listen to Algorithm Al to remind what you need to do for an algorithm to be successful…

Can you use the sheet from your pack to create your own Mr Potato head? Now can you give instructions to a grown up, brother or sister to see if they can make one?

Packs for home

Your next pack will be ready to collect on Friday morning between 9am and 11am. Is your child ready for the next level reading book band? If so, please get in touch and we can put some books in the next pack for them to try.

Have a great two days and we will blog again on Friday.
