Home Learning

Hi Year 1. I hope you are all managing OK with the work that I have set. I am really enjoying seeing pictures of your learning! It might be a nice idea to keep a diary or journal if you haven’t done so already. You could record your activities, thoughts, feelings and photos – as this is a moment in time nobody will forget! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me. If you have not yet had chance to complete the work set on here, then please scroll down to “Week beginning: Monday 23rd March”. The work will be uploaded in order and the earliest work will need to be completed first, for the next work to make sense.

Week beginning 13th July 2020

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.  Thank you for sending me lots of photos of your poems, I really enjoyed reading them. I can’t believe this week will be our last Zoom lessons, the last few weeks has gone so fast. I have loved teaching you all again.

Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday!

Love Mrs Murray xx

Do you notice anything special about the poem? Does is rhyme? What does rhyme mean? How is the poem set out? Write down the title of your favourite poem with a reason why.

Tuesday 7th- Read the three other seaside poems. Try and learn a few lines from your favourite Poem and practise performing these. Someone at home could video you doing this. Try and read the lines to make them sound like a poem. Watch this example to help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orgRWcZEoFM

 With sharp, shiny teeth 

Swimming in the ocean blue.

 I know I look nasty 

But don’t be afraid 

I’m more scared of you.

Friday 10th-  Can you remember what an acrostic poem is? Practise writing another. Make sure you use a different word to last time but it should still be a seaside word.

Look at page 30 which shows the Treasure Island, think of as many adjectives (describing words) as you can to describe this setting. Examples are: beautiful, quiet, dusty, empty and calm.  You could draw a picture of the island and write the words around it.

Tuesday 30th- Using the words you thought of yesterday describing the Treasure Island write a setting description. Pretend that you are on the treasure island. Possible sentences starters are: I can see… I can hear… I can smell… I can touch… I can taste…  Examples:  I can see the beautiful Ocean, I can hear the quiet breeze.

Wednesday 1st– Today you will pretend you are in ‘Class Three’. How do you feel when you first see the pirates and they come onto your boat? Write how you are feeling in a speech bubble and try and use the word ‘because’. An example is ‘I feel terrified because the pirates look big and scary’.  

Thursday 2nd- Look at page 30 and the picture of the treasure chest. Use this template to write a list of items you think would be in a treasure chest. Try to use adjectives to describe each item. For example ‘Shiny, silver necklace’

Friday 3rd- Think about different ideas of how the story could be changed. A different class, different characters or different setting  Look at the last page of the story and write it again changing some of the words. Don’t worry the words do not need to rhyme. An example is: So if ever your class goes to sea, remember what happened to Class Three. And if aliens board, don’t make a wish… just make friends with a jellyfish.

Monday 15th – This week we will be looking at the fabulous book ‘The Tin Forest’. Either read the book until page 2 or listen to the book being read and pause at 30 seconds. Think of as many adjectives (describing words) as you can to describe the setting….such as wide, windswept, dull, grey, dreary etc. Think about the colours, the weather, the smells, the garbage, the ground etc. You could print off an image of the setting and write the words all around. Or you could just write them in a list.

Tin forest

Tuesday 16th – Read on a little further, or listen to the book being read and pause at 42 seconds. Think about the man who lived in the house. Write a character description. What can you see? Describe his hair, clothes, face etc. What do you think he is like on the inside? He spends every day sorting through the garbage. Is he kind, helpful, tired, lonely etc?

149accf8e969952b654debe00ed37557

Wednesday 17th – Read on until the old man creates his forest, or listen to the book being read and pause at 1 minute 43. Today try to use the connective ‘but‘ in your sentences to describe the tin forest. ‘But’ is often used to show the opposite of what has already been said.

Some examples: There are tin trees, but no real trees. I can see a tin tiger but not a real tiger. There are no real birds but there are birds made of tin. The sun is not shining but the lights are.

The tin forest illustration

Thursday 18th –  Read on until the old man makes a wish, or listen to the book being read and pause at 2 minutes 19. Imagine what the old man might be wishing for. Think of a few ideas and then write in your best handwriting ‘I think that the man wished for…’. Don’t forget to use your phonics to spell the words and include finger spaces, full stops and capitals.

Friday 19th – Read the rest of the book or watch the entire video. Look at the final setting of the book. Use alliteration to describe what you can see. Alliteration is when you use two words together that begin with the same letter. You could either print off the picture and write the words around, or just write them in a list.

Some examples: tropical trees, interesting insects, buzzing bees etc

English

This week’s work is based on the wonderful book ‘Where the Wild Things are’

Monday 8th – Either read the book or listen to it being read here BUT…stop reading/listening just after the sentence ‘and Max the King of all the Wild Things was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all’ (this is about 3/4 through the book). Imagine that Max has a dilemma. He doesn’t know whether to stay being King of the Wild Things or whether to go home. Think of all the reasons why he should stay being King (for example he doesn’t have to go to bed, he is King, he doesn’t have to go to school, nobody can boss him about etc). Then think of all the reasons he should go home (he can see his family, he can have a bath, he can have his tea cooked for him etc). Decide whether you think Max should stay as King or go home. Write a simple sentence to Max explaining what you think he should do and why. You could use one of the following sentences starters:

Max, I think you should stay being King because…

Max, I think you should go home because…

Tuesday 9th – Either read the rest of the book or listen to it being read here. What did Max decide to do? Imagine your bedroom suddenly turns into a jungle! What might that look like? Spend today drawing or painting your bedroom as a jungle. You will need this for tomorrow’s work!

Wednesday 10th – Use your bedroom jungle work from yesterday to write a setting description. Write sentences such as I can see… I can smell… I can hear… I can touch… I can taste…

Make your descriptions really interesting! For example are the trees as tall as giraffes? Maybe you have hairy monkeys swinging from slippery vines? Are there shimmering butterflies flapping around gently? Maybe the ground is as muddy as a swamp?

Thursday 11th – Choose one of the Wild Things and write a list of adjectives to describe it. E.G. hairy, scary, sharp nails, pointy teeth etc. You will use these words in sentences tomorrow.

Wild things

Friday 12th  –  Use your adjectives from yesterday to write a character description of one of the Wild Things. Don’t forget capitals, full stops and finger spaces – as well as your beautiful cursive. Here are some sentence starters to help you with your character description.

His nails are…and…

His teeth are…

He smells like…

His body is…

His eyes are…

The Enchanted Woodland

Here are a range of activities you can have a go at:

Build nests and dens for a woodland animal outdoors using sticks, twigs and other collected items from the outdoors.

Sort items collected from a woodland walk into groups of living things, dead things and things that have never been alive. Explain why you have sorted them in that way and think of other things that could be added to these groups.

Investigate how pine cones open and close in different environmental conditions. Carefully tap a pine cone to find out whether the seeds fall out. Place the pine cone in a warm, dry place and notice what happens to it. Find out how the pine cone changes when placed in a cold or wet place. Consider why the pine cone might open and close.

Look at images of mysterious woodland pathways. Choose a favourite picture and imagine you have found the pathway and are about to follow it into the woods. Imagine you meet an animal or a magical creature or find a rare flower or plant. Write a story about your woodland adventure.

Make a home for a tiny, magical creature such as a woodland fairy or imp. Use a variety of small items such as moss, sticks, pebbles, leaves and other found materials to create their woodland homes. Consider how the creature would get in and out of their home and what they might need whilst they’re in residence!

Create teeny treats for a tiny tea party to serve to imaginary woodland creatures. Work with an adult to bake mini bramble crumbles and pies, fairy cakes with leaf decorations or chocolate logs with edible flower decorations… perhaps even a gingerbread house?

Set up a woodland shop using natural items such as leaves, feathers, sticks, pebbles and cones to stock your woodland store. Create your shop in the outdoors, using logs and wooden off-cuts and stumps for tables and chairs. Create mini price tags and role play buying and selling. Solve money problems using the shop items.

Build mini woodlands in sand and mud trays; creating tiny trees from twigs, sticks, pine cones and leaves. Decide where to place coniferous or deciduous trees; adding extra details such as paths, clearings, grassy patches, gates, fences and dens. Make a map of your imaginary woodland.

Make your own woodland crown! Draw around flower, fruit, seed and leaf templates then paint them and cut them out. Stick them carefully to a card band or crown adding twigs, acorns, and other woodland treasures.

Science

Following on from our work about weather and seasons, watch this powerpoint all about staying safe in the sun. Then design a poster explaining all the ways that you can stay safe in the sun.

Week beginning 1st June 2020

Hi Year 1. I hope you had a nice week away from home learning and enjoyed some sunshine. We are going to be starting a new topic called The Enchanted Woodland. At school topics would usually last a bit longer but I am not able to set some of the lessons we would usually do at school – such as science experiments and walks around the school grounds. Therefore we are whizzing through topics a bit quicker than usual! The Enchanted Woodland is a nice way to finish off the school year – although we have already done most of our learning about plants in science already! This will just be a bit of a hodgepodge of lessons to keep us going over the next 6 weeks or so! We will also have our Brazilian Carnivale zoom party soon, I just need to find a day that all the Year 1 staff can do as we are all busy in school on different days this week!

Beach

Buckets

Eating ice-creams

A sandcastle

Chasing waves

Hot

Wednesday 3rd – Watch this powerpoint about shape poems. Choose one of the following shape poems to complete.

The Enchanted Woodland

Visit a local woodland to enjoy an outside walk, using your ‘super senses’ to observe nature’s beauty and magic. In a small bag, collect fallen treasures you find along the way. Describe your surroundings and take digital photographs of interesting things: tree bark, leaves of different shapes and sizes, wild flowers or nuts and seeds. Make friends with a tree! Circle it with your arms, smell it, touch its bark and take a close look at its branches and leaves. Take rubbings of its bark and leaves and take a photograph of the tree with a digital camera to help with identification. Measure the circumference of it. Use a range of non-standard measures to compare sizes of different trees, including string, hands and blocks. Make the comparisons fair by measuring each tree at the same height, perhaps the base or at head height. Sit in a quiet wooded area and observe bird life. Count how many birds and different bird types you can see. Talk about what you see the birds doing in the trees. Be aware of woodland safety rules, watching out for things that shouldn’t be touched or eaten, keeping calm and looking out for hazards. Back at home, set up a nature table to display all the interesting and exciting treasures you have collected. You could print off the photos you took and stick them in order, writing a recount of your woodland walk. Or you could create a mini book of treasures that you collected, writing a label underneath each item.

Science

Watch the powerpoint about the seasons changing from Spring to Summer. Then go outside to measure your shadow throughout the day as the sun appears to move across the sky. You will need to go outside a few times throughout the day – try in the morning, at lunchtime, in the afternoon and then the early evening. You will need to stand in the same place, facing the same way each time – so mark a spot on the floor to stand on. You could trace around your shadow each time – or use something to mark where your shadow ends. What do you notice about the length and direction of your shadow?

Monday 18th – Watch the video on BBC Bitesize and then scroll down to complete the 2 activities.

Tuesday 19th – Watch the powerpoint and click the words that rhyme.

Wednesday 20th – Find as many rhyming words as you can on this sheet. Remember, words that rhyme should sound the same at the end. Try and change the first letter for a different letter and see what rhyming word you have created e.g. c-at and r-at!

Thursday 21st – If you have any of the ‘Oi’ books at home (Oi cat! Oi dog! Oi Frog! Oi Goat! etc) then choose one of them to read. If you don’t have any, then listen to one being read. Then make a list of as many rhyming words as you can from the story e.g. dog/frog, cat/mat etc.

Listen to the books being read:

Oi Cat    Oi Dog     Oi Duck Billed Platypus      Oi Frog

Friday 22nd – Choose 5 animals from this list and write a word that rhymes e.g. toads/roads, slugs/bugs etc. Once you have done that, write a mini version of your own Oi book. Choose a title, then use your 5 rhyming animals to write the story. For example:

Oi Toads

Toads sit on roads! Slugs sit on bugs and snails sit on tails. Mice sit on rice and goats sit on boats.

Geography

Watch this powerpoint about food in Brazil.

I would love for you to have a go at making a traditional Brazilian recipe, then upload a photo of your creations!

Some of these recipes call for some slightly unusual ingredients so you may have to adapt the recipe!

My very favourite Brazilian recipes are Brigadeiros and Beijinhos which are typically served at birthday parties. They are both super easy to make, very delicious – and very unhealthy! If you share them then they aren’t too bad!

Recipes

Brigadeiro (chocolate truffles)

Beijinho (coconut sweets)

Pao de Mel (honey cakes)

Brazilian carrot cake with chocolate

Pao de queijo (cheese bread)

Maracuja (passion fruit tray bake)

Feijoada (beef and bean stew)

Coxinhas (croquettes)

Science

We have now finished our topic about plants.

This week I thought you might enjoy being detectives and try to solve the puzzles in these virtual escape rooms! You could work as a family to solve them together.

English

In English we are going to start some work on poetry.

Monday 11th – Start by watching this short video about what a poem is (You could even play the quiz after). Then watch this video about how to memorise a poem. Finally choose one of these poems to try and perform. You could try to learn the words off by heart or you could just read from the sheet. Try to make it a little more interesting by adding actions or a rhythm to the words. You could even sing or rap the poem! A good performer speaks clearly and loudly to their audience. You might even want to ask your audience to film you performing your poem!

Tuesday 12th – Read the poem ‘The Sound Collector’. Imagine someone came to your house and took all of your sounds away! It would be very strange. Have a go at illustrating this poem by drawing pictures to show all the sounds that he took e.g. a ticking clock, a whistling kettle etc.

Wednesday 13th – Tomorrow you will be writing your own poem based on The Sound Collector. Today you will be planning your ideas. Take a walk around your house and see what sounds you can hear! What objects are making those sounds?

Thursday 14th – Use your plan from yesterday to write your own version of The Sound Collector. You can have a look at mine first as an example!

Friday 15th – Why not have a go at performing your poem using the skills you practised on Monday? You could even have a go at publishing your poem by writing it up neatly with a pen, or typing it on the computer. Add illustrations as a border too!

Science

Watch this powerpoint all about parts of a plant. If you have any plants, try to have a look at them to identify the different parts. Can you spot leaves and the stem? Are any roots showing? Then complete this sheet labelling the parts of a plant.

Geography

Imagine you are on holiday in Brazil. Where could you be? Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Salvador or Manaus? Maybe somewhere else? Write a postcard to a friend or family member telling them all about what it’s like. What is the weather like, what have you seen, what have you eaten? Design the front of the postcard to show what you can see. Maybe you will include a famous landmark, or the Brazilian flag? Don’t forget to colour it in!

Art

We have now finished our Art topic about landscapes and cityscapes. We would usually be completing a design technology project now but that is going to be a little hard to set without all the necessary tools! Instead we will look at the Art project “nature sculptures“.

Watch this powerpoint about drawing from nature. Find a natural object from your garden, or have a look at something online. Have a go at sketching your object with a pencil. Read these top tips for advice before starting.

Week beginning 4th May 2020

As Friday is a Bank Holiday, I will upload work for Monday – Thursday and then provide some optional VE Day activities. It would be lovely to see your photos if you do celebrate on Friday! Have a lovely week everyone xx

Phonics

We are going to start looking at split digraphs in Phonics. There are 5 different split digraphs and they make 6 sounds: a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e and u-e (which makes 2 sounds – think ‘flute’ and ‘cube’). They are ‘split’ because they don’t appear together in words but do make a sound together. E.G. in the word ‘theme’ we can see the e-e split digraph: the two ‘e’s are not together in the word but we read the word like this: th – ee – m.

Monday 4th May – watch the video on Discovery Education about the ‘a-e’ sound, then write the a-e word below each picture. Try and have a go at spelling the words without the word bank at the top of the page first, then use them to help you if needed. 

Tuesday 5th – Recap the work done yesterday on the a-e split digraph by choosing one of these activities (or do both!) Phoneme spotter postcard or Colour real and fake a-e words

Wednesday 6th – watch the video on Discovery Education about the ‘e-e’ sound, then complete the wordsearch.

Thursday 7th – Recap the work done yesterday on the e-e split digraph by writing the e-e words in the picture. This is a little tricky as there aren’t that many easy e-e words! The answers are on the second page.

You can also play a game on Teach your Monster To Read each day.

Don’t forget to read a book every day too!

Geography

Last week I said that we are going to be comparing a major Brazilian city with a major UK city. This week the focus will be on Manchester. Read the information with facts about Manchester. You could always do extra research if you would like. Then either complete the following sheet using your research or design your own poster of key facts. You could cut out and stick some of the pictures of the houses and landmarks.

Compare the information that you found out about Rio and Manchester. Is anything the same? What is different?

I’ve heard that a few of you are finding the English a little tricky. In class, drawing story maps usually takes about 20 minutes and we usually write for no longer than 30 minutes – so try not to spend too long writing each day.

English

This week’s work is based on the lovely book “Handa’s Surprise”. Start by watching the video or read the book if you have it!

Monday 20th – Which fruit do you think Akeyo will like best? Imagine you are in Kenya tasting the seven fruits. If you have any fruit from the story (pineapple, orange, guava, banana, avocado, mango and passionfruit) then use your senses to describe them. Write down how they smell, taste, feel and look. If you don’t have any of these, try some other fruit instead. Why not add these fruits to your shopping list or buy some fruit that you have never tried before!?

Tuesday 21st – Draw a story map to show what happened in the story. Start with Handa and her basket of 7 fruits. Then draw each animal stealing the different fruit!

Wednesday 22nd – Have a go at writing the story of Handa’s Surprise. You do not need to use the same words as the story – just use your story map to retell the story. You could even turn the story into a mini folded book.

Thursday 23rd – Plan your own version of Handa’s Surprise! It will need a new title. Mine would be called Mrs Millington’s Surprise. I would be taking a basket of fruit to my friend Mrs Eadie. Draw a story map to show which 7 animals would steal which 7 fruit. I think my story would be set in England so a cheeky cow might steal my juicy apple and a naughty horse might take my sour lemon!

Friday 24th – Use your story map to write your own version of Handa’s Surprise. You could turn it into a mini book and include illustrations!

Science

Our new topic in Science is all about plants. If you have any, try to plant some seeds. Think about the conditions you will need to plant your seeds. Keep a plant diary and watch it grow!

Watch the powerpoint all about wild plants. If it is safe to do so, go on a wild plant hunt either in your garden or your local area. Click here for the wild plant activity sheet.

Geography

Our new topic in Geography is Brazil. Watch the powerpoint all about Brazil. Use a map to look at where Brazil is compared to the UK. You could create a collage of pictures all about Brazil. Print or draw pictures inside the shape of Brazil – you could include famous landmarks, pictures of carnival, the flag or major cities. You could include Brazilian colours such as yellow, green and blue – and even add sequins or feathers like carnival masks to decorate your collage!

This week I have chosen 3 activities on MyMaths that should be a little easier than usual and you may be able to do without help from a parent. They are focused on reviewing the counting skills that we learnt early on in Year 1. You can do them on whichever day and in any order.

If you would like some harder activities then please email me and I can set some individual tasks.

Other optional activities:

Phonics

Here are some optional Phonic activities you could do this week.

Remember that there are lots of activities on PhonicsPlay

Don’t forget that you can always play a game on Teach your Monster To Read.

Keep on reading every day! Why not read to your brother or sister if you have one? Maybe you could read a book to your neighbour over the fence! You might even read to your pet. Try and find an unusual place to read and upload a photo.

English

Use your story map to write your version of Little Red Riding Hood. You can use the original story structure to help you if you want, just change the character names.

For example: Once upon a time there was a … called … who lived with … Early one morning … asked her to …

Take as long as you need to write your story. In class we would usually take about 4 days. We would write the beginning one day, then the middle parts and then the end. Or you can do it all in one go if you would prefer!

If you have already written your story, or when you finish, why not try publishing your story? You could either have a go at using those computing skills we have been learning to type up your story. Or you could create your own book with page numbers, a front cover and illustrations.

Other ideas for English this week:

History

Click on the powerpoint that tells us how we know about the Great Fire of London. Then watch this video. Next watch this video – I love Magic Grandad! If you want an extra challenge, you could even have a go imagining that you are in 1666 watching the Great Fire happen! Why not write a diary entry discussing the fire!?

Science

Here’s an activity that we started at school and never managed to finish! Watch this powerpoint about dinosaurs and sort them into herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.

You might also want to try this Science booklet about animals and humans.
