Home learning week beginning 6th July 2020:

Maths:

This week we are focussing on finding half and quarter of objects and amounts. You will need some objects to count and split into groups for example: beads, pasta or sweets. It would also be nice if you had a cake/s or pizza so you can cut them into halves or quarters!

As always, remember to watch the video to go with each lesson before attempting the activities and pause it at appropriate places. If you are unable to print off the sheets at home, you can just write the answers in your own way into your home learning book. Work hard and have fun! smiley

Writing - This week we would like you to think about Neverland, where Peter Pan lives. What would you have in a land where no-one grows up? Draw a picture of your map and write sentences about what you would have in it. We look forward to seeing them!

Design and Writing task

Design and Writing task 1

Design and writing task.

Look at the pictures of the medals above.

Your task is to design a medal for British Soldiers who served in the Second World War.

Your medal can be any size or shape.

Think about the ribbon AND the metal part.

You must include:

  • The years of the war (1939-1945)
  • The colours of the Allies
  • A symbol to show the fighting and victory (winning)
  • Air, sea and land (the areas the war was fought)

Write about what you have decided to do and why, in your yellow book.

Maths:

The Maths follows the same pattern as weeks one and two. There are four lessons which you can follow by clicking on the video links (one for each lesson) and join in with by pausing and answering each question when reminded. Once you have watched the daily video, have a go at the activity to go with the lesson. If you don't have a printer at home, please don't worry, you can draw the pictures into your book and write the number sentences to go with them. Remember, each daily activity starts easier and gets more challenging towards the end so start and stop at the place you feel most comfortable, but have a go! wink

Home Learning for week beginning 27th April Topic work/Reading/Writing

Writing - this week you have tasks on common exception words you find a bit tricky.

Art/DT - Last week you read the story about Ayesha the Superhero Princess; I hope you enjoyed it! Can you follow the instructions to make some superhero cuffs? It would be great if you took photos of them and sent them to us so we can see how brilliant they are!

Maths: as last week, there are 4 lessons for the week with activities. Watch the video link first with your child before they complete the activity for the lesson into their book. Each activity is designed so that the child completes as much as they are able to and starts at a place appropriate for their level. They start easy and gradually get more difficult, so let them lead you! :-). We have also put the answers on, just in case you are not sure. Remember to watch the video for each lesson first.

Monday 20th April

 

Welcome back everyone; we hope you’ve had a lovely Easter holiday and have managed to stay safe and have lots of fun. I have eaten far too much chocolate but managed to get out for a walk every day too! 😊

 

Below you will find your new home learning for this week:

 

Maths: There are 4 Maths activities for your child to do over the week which we would like them to complete into their home learning exercise book. If you can’t print the activities, your child can copy and complete the sentences into their book. They could even draw the pictures that go with each question. Each day’s activity is designed for all children to have a go at. They start off at an easier level and gradually get more challenging towards the end. If your child finds the later parts too difficult then stop at the appropriate point. On the contrary, if your child finds the earlier parts too easy, start a bit further in and work to the end. Work at the level that they feel most comfortable and complete the whole lot if they are really keen! 😊

There are video tutorials to accompany each lesson which are great and very easy to follow. I have added the link below for you. Just click on the link then play the correct video for each lesson. You can pause it whenever you like so that your child can work out the answers. :-)   If you have any problems, do not hesitate to email me.

Happy learning, Mrs Walker.

Art Activity: What colour is your leaf?

 

Print out the art activity or complete it in your own way into your exercise book. Be as creative as you like. :-)

 

English tasks

Look for your colour group and complete a mat each day. The answers are there too but no cheating! cheeky

As with the maths, you can either print each sheet or complete the tasks in your books, each day.  

Any problems please let me know and I can lend a hand. Have fun!

Good afternoon 1CW. Lucas has been working very hard with his mum doing some of the science work about animals. He has drawn sets into his book and written the animals that his mum has given him into the correct sets. Well done Lucas! :-)

Imogen's Home Learning!

Wednesday 26th March

Good Morning everyone!

We would have been learning about Peculiar Pets in school right now. I know you are all learning about them in your packs but if you look at the Edinburgh Zoo web page they have lots of live web cams, where you can see what the animals are up to in real time. I have just been watching the penguins playing! laugh

Let me know what you see and choose an animal to find out more about. Are they a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore? Are they nocturnal? Are they a mammal? What is their diet? Draw or make your animal too!

Have fun! 

love Mrs Cross wink

Wednesday 25th March

 

Hello 1CW, I hope you are all managing to stay safe at home and find lots of fun things to do to help your learning. It is very quiet working from home and I am missing all your happy faces in the classroom. Remember to keep reading every day and to practise your speed sounds with your adult.

 

Here is a little video to help you. :-)

Speak to you soon,

Mrs Walker.

This week we would have been starting to learn multiplication.

 

Watch this little video on how to make equal groups then try making and counting groups of 2, 5 and 10. Use objects that you have in your house to make the groups; pasta, beans, buttons or coins then see if you can record it into your home learning book.

 

Happy counting!

A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson

 

Listen to the story then draw a picture of your favourite part in your home learning book. Write some sentences to say what is happening.

Spread the Happiness have these ideas of things to do inside. How many can you do?

Autumn 1:Superheroes

Our first topic of the year is Superheroes. As well as looking at comic book heroes, we will be learning about real-life superheroes, people who help us every day as part of their job. We will be learning about keeping safe and being healthy by eating the right foods and doing exercise.

In Science, we have been learning about predicting and investigating. Mrs Cross taught us about the special curved shape of an egg which makes it very strong. We predicted whether we thought we could walk on eggs and then we tested it out!

We were very shocked when we were able to walk on them without them breaking! We too have super powers!

Walking on Eggs!

Real Life Superheroes!

 

As part of our topic we invited some real life Superheroes in to help us learn about their jobs and how they help people. We had lots of fun finding out what makes them superheroes.

Visit from Dentist

 

We were taught how to look after our teeth. The Dentist showed us how to brush our teeth and talked to us about which food and drink were good to keep our teeth healthy.

Paramedic Visit

 

Mr Jackman came to visit us. He told us about how a Paramedic helps people and showed us some of the equipment he uses. As you can see from our faces, it is very heavy!

We were also lucky to be able to go inside his ambulance!

Guide Dog Visit

 

We have also learnt that animals can be super heroes too. Laura brought her guide dog, Hestor, in to visit. She showed us how Hestor helps her find her way around and how he helps her at home. 

We tried some special glasses on to give us an idea of what it is like when you are blind.

Firefighter Visit

 

We have had a visit from some firefighters. They came to Year one to teach us all about fire safety and the importance of their role. We learnt about smoke alarms,  what to do in a fire (stop, drop and roll), what a firefighter has to do in their job and what equipment and uniform they have to wear. Mrs Cross even got to dress up as a firefighter!

Police Officer Visit

 

 P.C. Ford and his colleague, from Warwickshire Police Force came into Year 1 to teach us all about their jobs. We had lots of fun learning about what they do each day and how they help others. We tried on their uniform, looked at some of the equipment they use, learnt how to direct traffic and even got to go in the back of the police van!

Super food Smoothies!

 

In DT, we  have learnt about super foods and thought about which super foods Superheroes would like to eat to keep them strong and healthy. We designed a smoothie, helped to make it and then got to taste it! 

We used bananas, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackcurrants.

To end our Superhero topic we had a Superhero Day! 

We all dressed as different Superheroes and practised our Superhero poses!

How many different superheroes can you see?
