Remote Learning – Monday 1st February

January 31, 2021 at 3:28 pm

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

Now it is your turn to practise:

Now is the time to answer the Questions 1 to 4 on pages 22, 23 and 24, if you didn’t complete them yesterday. If you would like to challenge yourself then why not have a go at the subtraction Dojo calculations in your pack. Don’t forget to use objects and/or your number line to help you.

Mathletics

Well done for working hard on Mathletics. Look how many certificates you have earned since September…

1GK

1B

Will we get any golds this year? Your certificates have been printed and are in your pack.

Subtraction Game

Here is a fun game to help you practise your subtraction skills. Click here to play.

Choose take away less than 10.
Then use the number line and click on the numbers in grey.

Spelling Shed

Well done to everyone who is practising their spellings on Spelling Shed. Look at the school leader board…

Can we get into the top 10? There is a new game on Spelling Shed that has some of the Year 1 tricky words on for you to practise. Can you spell them all? Keep playing and scoring lots of points for your class.

Library

It is Friday, so it must be library day! Have you been reading lots of books at home? Please let us know if you need more books on Bug Club.

Lots of famous authors have been reading their books. Here is one for you to enjoy…

Remote Learning – Wednesday 27th January

January 26, 2021 at 3:32 pm

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.

  • Art – create a piece of artwork in the style of Henri Matisse
  • PE – ball skills using your 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 a-e, ay and ai phonemes. They are different digraphs that all make the same sound in words like late, play and rain.

This short Alphablocks clip explores the different spellings that create the same sound!

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

On Tuesday we are looking at the or, aw and au digraphs. These diagraphs look different but sound the same like in fork, claw and Autumn.

There is a fun four in a row game include in your pack. 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?

English

This week all our work is linked to the story ‘Katie and the Dinosaurs’ written and illustrated by James Mayhew. Enjoy the story read by the author….

Imagine if you went through the special door like Katie did.

What fantasy world would you explore? Maybe you would go under the sea, in space or sweetie land. Use your imagination and have fun! What can you see? What can you smell? What can you hear?

Over the next two days we would like you to draw the fantasy land you visit and label it. (You can write the labels on the back of the door – please don’t write on the lined page.) Here is an example from last year…

We are looking forward to seeing your super drawings. Remember to use some adjectives, right choice words, when you are writing your labels.

Maths

This week we are continuing our work on subtraction, this time we will be crossing 10. Let’s find out more…

Monday’s lesson

Quick fire starter, can you answer the questions below?

Can you remember how to use your number line to solve subtraction calculations? If not, don’t worry let’s have a look…

Have a look at the next 2 calculations. Can you write the calculation on your whiteboard and then work out the answer?

Well done if you got the right answer.

Now can you try solving these 2 calculations?

Well done, you are doing well. Now you can answer questions 1 and 2 (pages 19 & 20) in your White Rose math books.

Tuesday’s lesson

Ok, let’s get our brains thinking about numbers. Can you answer these warm up questions?

Hopefully you are now more confident using a number line to subtract one number from another. Here is a reminder…

Now we are going to show you another way of how to solve the calculation by counting back to 10 first. Let’s take a look…

Can you solve this calculation by counting back to 10 first?

Now you have had time to practice counting back to 10 first, can you try answering question 3 (pages 20 & 21) in your White Rose maths books.

Art

This week we are learning about another famous artist – Henri Matisse. He was French and used a lot of colour in his art work.

In your pack there are some instructions and paper that you can use to make your own Matisse inspired art work. We are looking forward to seeing your amazing art.

PE

Hopefully your ball skills using your feet are improving. Don’t forget to keep the eyes on your ball and control where it goes.

This week we are continuing to dribble a ball around objects, this time you need to have 1 red, yellow and green object, this could be coloured pencils or pens. Now you need someone in your house to hold these objects up one at a time. If they hold up green – dribble the ball around your chosen objects. Yellow – tap your toes on the ball and red – stop your ball with your feet

This week we have been looking at the two tricky words:

Can you spell both of these words correctly and say them in a sentence? Why not try and add these words into a silly sentence? Can you be a detective and spot either of these words in one of your reading books?

You could also check to see how many of the Year 1 words you can read and spell correctly. There is a copy included in your first pack, but a copy has been attached below too. Pick a couple of the words you cannot spell and practise these through the next week and test yourself again next Friday! If you can spell all of the words are you able to write them in a sentence?

Library Day

Have you read any good books at home this week? Sit back and enjoy this dinosaur story…

Handwriting

Have you been practising your handwriting? Can you write all the lower case letters cursively? Can you form all the capital letters correctly? In your yellow book write the capital letter next to its lower case letter, like the image below…

Maths

Well done for working so hard this week! Today we are looking at solving subtraction problems using a number line. Can you work out what to write for the calculation and answer it?

Watch the video from 7 minutes onwards (if you watch from the beginning it will recap everything you have learnt so far this week)

Can you choose some subtraction problems from your pack to solve? Can you write the calculation? Don’t forget to use your number line or objects to help.

Now for some fun activities to help learn your number bonds to 10 and 20.

Here is a fun number bond game to play at home.

Click here to play. Then choose number bonds and then either make 10 or make 20. Have fun!

Can you make a number bond rainbow? You could use different colours to write out the calculations.

Amazing work in Year 1…

Well done to the parents/carers for a super week of teaching and well done to Year 1 for working so hard! Enjoy a rest this weekend and we will blog again on Monday.

Home learning – Wednesday 20th January

January 19, 2021 at 4:49 pm

It is Wednesday! Look what we are doing over the next two days…

  • Phonics – Revise the phonemes – ur/er/ir and ou
  • English – Choose a dinosaur to write some facts about. Do one of the comprehension tasks from your pack.
  • Maths – Subtraction
  • ICT – Algorithms
  • PE – Ball skills using feet

Phonics

Everyone is welcome to join in with our live phonics lessons every day this week 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 ur, er and ir phonemes. They sound the same but look different!

On Thursday we are revising the ou phoneme like in ground.

There is a fun board game and phoneme spotter for these sounds in your pack to play!

Can you read these real and alien words? Why not try to put each of these words into a sentence?

In school the children enjoy reading and writing their own silly sentences. “Can a blue teapot dance and sing?” “Do sharks read books at night and sleep in a bed?” “I saw a jumping dolphin in my garden!” Can they write one using the digraphs from Wednesday and Thursday? They could type it in the comment section of this blog post to make their friends laugh! Will you need a question mark, exclamation mark or full stop? Here is mine…

English

Over the next two days you can choose your own dinosaur to find out some interesting facts about. This game on BBC Bitesize is good fun and will help you find out lots of facts.

Now you can write some sentences about your dinosaur. You could write your sentences in your yellow book, or use one of the writing frames from your pack or make a poster or leaflet. You could even draw a picture of your dinosaur to add to your work. This is the success criteria for the task…

Reading

Have you done any of the comprehension tasks from your pack? Are you still reading lots of books at home? Don’t forget there are plenty of books on Bug Club, Oxford Owls and Collins Big Cat. You could challenge yourself and read a book from the next level.

Leeds libraries have lots of great books you can read online. Click on the link to find out more.

Maths

Wednesday

Today we are looking at subtracting using a number track.

Is Tiny correct?
Have a try to calculate this answer using your number track
Can you work out the answer?

Now have a go at questions 1 and 2 (pages 16 and 17) in your workbooks.

Can you challenge yourself to answer this question:

Thursday

Now you have practised subtracting numbers using a number track, let’s see if you can use a number line.

Can you practise answering these calculations using a number line?
Can you write the calculation and find the answer to this subtraction problem? No peeking at the answer below!

Now you can answer question 3 in your workbook. When you’ve done that can you challenge yourself to try the question below?

ICT

An algorithm is a list of rules to follow in order to solve a problem.

Algorithms need to have their steps in the right order. Think about an algorithm for getting dressed in the morning. What if you put on your coat before your jumper? Your jumper would be on top of your coat and that would be silly! Watch this video to find out more…

We use algorithms every day. I need to bake a cake:

The algorithm here is a cake recipe. You can find the algorithm to solve this problem in a cookbook! In your home learning pack you have some programming cards. Can you give instructions to someone at home and direct them somewhere specific?

Maybe you could make something using Lego or Duplo and give instructions to someone to build exactly the same model. Watch the video to help…

PE

How did you do on the last challenge? Let’s keep practising our ball skills using our feet. Can you dribble a ball or ball of socks/foil around some obstacles, maybe use some tins of food or toys?

Ask a grown up or brother or sister to shout out a body part. You need to stop the ball with your feet and place the body part called on the ball. Have fun!

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

There is a fun four in a row and a roll and read game for these sounds in your pack to play!

Can you read these real and alien words? Why not try to put each of these real words into a sentence?

Remember to see if you can spot any of these sounds in your reading books.

English

Wow! Before we left school on Friday we set up some cameras to see if we could film the cheeky dinosaur that keeps coming in our classrooms. It worked – watch this video to see who it was…

This week we are writing the last page of our T Rex book. Do you know what habitat means? It is where someone might live. Do you know where the T Rex lived?

See if you can find out any more facts about the habitat of the T Rex and then write your last page. Are you proud of your finished book? You are now an author! Well done!

Maths

For the next 2 weeks our focus in math’s will be subtraction, taking one number away from another.

Monday

Can you make 18 on your ten frames and take away/subtract 2? Do you get an answer of 16?
Can you subtract 4 from 15? How many snowflakes do you have left?

Can you have a go at the subtraction sheet in your packs? Then answer question 1 in your workbooks on page 14.

Can you challenge yourself to answer this subtraction problem?

Tuesday

Home Learning – Wednesday 13th January

January 12, 2021 at 3:42 pm

Well done on working so hard so far this week. This is what we are learning on Wednesday and Thursday…

Phonics – Learn the g say j and ea says e phonemes

English – Write the next page of your T Rex book. Learn how to use the conjunction ‘and’.

Maths – Add by making 10

Science – Investigating materials

PE – Ball skills using your feet

Phonics

This week we are learning phonemes that sometimes make a different sound in some words. For example a ‘g’ is sometimes pronounced as a ‘j’ in some words like ‘giant’ and ‘ea’ is sometimes pronounced as ‘e’ in some words like ‘bread’.

Can you read all of these words? Can you write any of your own words using these sounds? Can you spot either of these phonemes in your reading books?

There are also daily phonic lessons on the government Phonic lessons website. You can use the link to catch up on previous lessons.

English

Conjunctions

Do you know what a conjunction is? It is a word that can help us join up two clauses in a sentence. Today we are going to learn how to use and in sentences.

Now have a go at the two conjunction sheets that are in your pack.

On this sheet you need to swap it and replace it with and to make the 2 sentences into 1.
Can you finish each sentence?

Dinosaur Book

Over the next two days you need to write the next page of your book about what the T Rex did. Use the facts below to help you. Can you find out any more facts? Try to use and in your writing.

Maths

We are continuing to learn how to add 2 numbers together by making 10.

Can you now complete questions 1 and 2 on page 11 and 12 of the White Rose Maths book?

Now complete question 3 on pages 12 and 13.

Science

We have had another letter from a dinosaur and found a nest full of eggs in our classroom!

Can you help Tina protect her eggs? Use all your knowledge of materials to make an ‘egg protector’. What material would be good to use? Have you anything in your house that you could use? Then you can have fun testing it! (Grown ups – you might want to boil the egg first if you don’t want too much mess!!) Please email us photographs of your super egg protectors.

PE

Last half term we did a lot of work on ball skills using your hands. This half term we are looking at our ball skills using our feet!!

Grab a ball and find yourself a little space, ideally outside if there isn’t any snow!

Can you use your feet to dribble the ball around on the floor? Can you control the ball? Can you make the ball stop using your feet? Once you have practised controlling the ball, can you try this activity:

Reading Books

Please can you return any reading books that your child has read when you collect your pack on Friday morning. There will be a plastic box for you to put them in. We have put new books in your child’s pack – hopefully they won’t have read them! There are also plenty of books on Bug Club. Please let us know if your child needs more books adding to their account.

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

How exciting! A Tyrannosaurus Rex in our school! Over the next two days can you write the first page of your book ‘What did T Rex look like?’ (Please only do this page on Monday and Tuesday.)

Watch this video to help you find out more facts…

Now it is time to write the page in your book. (Please don’t just copy the facts from above. Use your own words and also try and find some more facts.) Remember to use capital letters and full stops, leave finger spaces and form all your letters neatly. We will learn more about using ‘and’ on Wednesday.

The success criteria for your writing is below…

Phonics

Everyone is welcome to join in with our live phonics lessons every day this week at 9.15am on Google Meet.

On Monday we are learning about the final split digraph. On Tuesday we are looking at phonemes that sometimes make a different sound in some words. For example a ‘c’ is sometimes pronounced as a ‘s’ in some words like ‘pencil’.

Can you read all of these real and alien words? Can you write any of your own words using these sounds? Can you spot either of these phonemes in your reading books?

There are also daily phonic lessons on the government Phonic lessons website. You can use the link to catch up on previous lessons.

Maths

This week we are adding 2 numbers together by making 10. This is where confidently knowing your number bonds to 10 will help. If your child isn’t sure please practise them using the clips on our previous blogs.

Look at my ten frames. I am working out 8 + 8, I am going to use a ten frame to make 10.

Can you solve these calculations using your tens frame? Can you write the calculations on your whiteboard?

7 + 6 =

5 + 8 =

9 + 8 =

7 + 8 =

Now you have practised adding 2 numbers by making 10. Can you solve this calculation:

Watch this clip if you are unsure of how to add by making 10.

Can you solve these calculations using your tens frame? Can you write the calculations on your whiteboard?

7 + 4 = 8 + 6 = 6 + 9 = 7 + 7 =

There aren’t any pages in the White Rose book for Monday and Tuesday. Please do lots of practical work with your child – making sure that they are confident with their number bonds and solving addition calculations using the tens frames.

Art

Have a look at these beautiful dinosaur silhouette pictures.

How to create your own dinosaur silhouette…

  1. Get a white piece of paper and you can either use strips of coloured paper, paint or coloured pencils to create stripes across your paper. Leave to dry.

2. Draw a dinosaur on to black paper or you could paint a black dinosaur or draw one using a black felt tip and colour it in. Cut your dinosaur out.

3. Stick your black dinosaur on to your coloured stripy paper.
