Good morning Year One.
We hope you all had a lovely long weekend and enjoyed spending time with you family. This week, we are setting literacy and maths tasks for you as usual but hopefully these will be tasks you can complete mostly on your own without too much adult help.
In the afternoon there are lots of activities you could select from, if you would like to, on the ‘Give your parents a break' week sheet. If you have brothers or sisters in the school, you could work on these together.
If you have any questions about any of the tasks set, or we can help in any other way, please do feel free to contact us. We are both contactable through our usual email addresses.
You might like to start your day with the Joe Wicks workout on You Tube.
If you prefer, you could try something more relaxing, such as this cosmic yoga.
Today you are going to read the sentences on the sheets below. They are about the Great fire of London. Your task is to think of the order the events would have happened and put them in order by numbering them. You then need to copy the sentences into you home learning books in the correct order.
This is also a handwriting task and we would like you to think carefully about sitting your letters on the line, keeping your letters the same size and shape and thinking about where to start you letters and the direction you form them.
There are three slightly different sheets to select from. Have a look and complete the one you feel is most appropriate for your child.
You do not need to complete all three pages!
Your spellings this week are the days of the week:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Remember – they all end in day and begin with a capital letter because these are the names of the days of the week.
The usual spelling sheets are in the document below but you do not need to print these out, you can learn the spelling in the way that works best for you, if you prefer.
This week we are going to have a revision week and we are going to think about all of the sounds we have looked at so far this year. There are a collection of words to read and add the sound buttons – you then need to draw the picture of the word.
If you prefer not to print the sheets you can copy the words and draw your pictures into your book.
There are three sheets in the document below. Select the sheet that you feel is most appropriate for your child.
They do not need to complete all three sheets.
You might like to complete a few pictures each day across the week, rather than complete it all today.
Here is a phonics game to play, if you would like to.
Sort the real words into the treasure chest and the alien words into the bin!
Start with phase three sounds and then move on to the others.
Read Write Inc – Phonics lesson of the day
You might also like to watch the new, daily Ruth Miskin phonics lesson- they focus on a different sound each day.
This week we will be revising the letter formation of the ‘one armed robot’ letters: r n m h b k p
If your child is starting these letters in the correct position (the top of the letter, going down, retracing up the line and curving over) then they can begin to start working on the pre-cursive letter formation and start their letters on the line.
In this power point you can select the letter you would like to learn, watch how to form it and then have a go in your handwriting books.
Today you might like to focus on: r n m
Please try to read for at least 10 minutes at some point today- it is great to hear that lots of you are continuing to enjoy the online books from the following websites.
If you follow the link below, you will find the usual video lesson on the White Rose Maths website.
Go to the week 4 set of lessons and watch lesson 1- Add by making 10
There are no worksheets on this website this week but more linked learning can be found at BBC Bitesize.
Here are three worksheets that focus on number bonds. You do not have to do these but you might like to. Select one of the three sheets that you feel best suits your child. They should be able to complete this with a degree of independence using objects, fingers or a number line, as appropriate.
There is a fourth challenge sheet, which builds on the learning from the video lesson and some children might want to have a go at- if they were confident with the concepts in the video.
Your child could copy the questions into their home learning book if you prefer not to print.
