Thursday 23rd April
Hello Year One. Here is your work for today.
Remember to start your day with an exercise activity. Choose from a website below or create your own exercise routine to try.
It’s important to give the brain a rest from learning throughout the day. Why not try the song below when you need a break.
To complete your non-fiction page about fire engines you will need to write a glossary.
A glossary is a list of key words about your topic. It tells the reader what a word means. Usually the glossary is found at the end of an information book.
There are 3 rules for writing a glossary.
Choose some words from your information page that your reader might not understand and use these to write a glossary. Or you can use the following words: flammable, hazardous, siren, emergency. Follow the steps below to help you.
Continue to work on recalling your spellings: goat, soap, oak, stew, flew, drew/ ask, friend ready for a quiz tomorrow.
Play the phonics game on page 2 of the phonic sheet below.
Here is an additional sheet with some of our focus sounds. You can read the words on screen if you prefer not to print the sheet. If you do print it, you can have a go at adding the sound buttons to the words.
Remember to read for at least 10 minutes today.
Optional reading activities.
