Monday 27th April
Good morning Year One. We hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready for some more home learning today.
If you have any questions please do feel free to contact us, we are here to help.
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 join in with some yoga moves on the Cosmic Kids website.
Also, here is a super movers song that involves counting in 5's for you to join in with:
Today we would like you to find out a bit about firefighters- the uniform they wear, the tools and the equipment they use.
To begin the week we would like you to do some research and find out what they need to wear to keep safe and the tools and equipment they use to help them. Have a go at playing the 'Dress a firefighter' game in the link below- ask an adult to help you read the information boxes about each piece of clothing/equipment to find out more.
Your recorded task is to draw and label a firefighter- then write an interesting fact about what you have found out.
You can either draw and label your own firefighter or use the sheet below, if you prefer.
*Can you think about how to write capital letters and use these at the start of the words for your labels.
There is a short video to watch and it will help recap on matching the uppercase letter to the lowercase letter.
Your spellings for this week focus on the sounds: ire- Fire, fire! and ear – Hear with your ear.
They are: fire, spire, wire, hear, fear, spear / school, house (are the two key words to spell)
These words are on the PDF below, if you would like to print out the usual sheet, but you do not have to.
You will also find the sheet you can use to rehearse the spelling each day, if you would like to.
Remember to carry out a quiz with your child on Friday and let us know their score. Thank you.
This week, our focus for phonics will be: ire- Fire, fire! and ear – Hear with your ear.
We will also revise: a-e – make a cake and i-e – nice smile.
Please complete the phonics sheet attached below- focus on a different section each day this week and play the alien game at the end of the week.
Remember to watch the Ruth Miskin phonics video each day to recap on the sounds we have been looking at this year.
In your handwriting books please work on the following letter formation- the zig zag letters:
v, w, x, z
Please refer to the handwriting sheet in your pack for the correct formation.
Please read for at least 10 minutes- it is great to hear that lots of you have been enjoying the online books from the following websites.
Please ask if you have any questions about this.
In maths we will be continuing with our work on finding a half.
Please follow the link below to the Summer Term week 2 set of lessons.
Please click on lesson 1- Find a half (2)
Click on the pink block called ‘Summer Term- Week 1 (W/c 20 April)’ and it will then bring up a new block called ‘Summer Term – Week 2 (W/c 27th April)’
Watch the video first. There is a ‘flashback’ page to consolidate prior learning, remember to pause the page to discuss and answer the questions.
Once your child has watched the whole video you could either print out the ‘Get the Activity’ pages with relevant questions linked to the learning in the video. You can ‘Get the answers’ in the box below.
Or, if you prefer not to print out additional paper, then please ask your child to:
*Get a collection of 6 items. Find half of them- by sharing between 2 equally.
Draw the 6 items and circle half of them.
Write- Half of 6 is ……..
Repeat for further examples, using objects to share them equally between 2:
Draw 8 items- circle half of them.
Write- Half of 8 is ………….
Draw 10 items- circle half of them.
Write- Half of 10 is ………….
Draw 12 items- circle half of them.
Write- Half of 12 is ………….
*Arrange the 12 items as 3 columns and 4 rows and circle half.
Complete the sentence:
7 is half of ……..
Below is a grid of other subject activities that you can select from this week. Please do one of these each day.
We hope you enjoy the tasks you select this week.
