Morning Job

Our new tricky word is:

 

 

Read the word. Remember tricky words cannot be sounded out like most of the words we read in phonics.

 

When you are confident you can read the word,

 

Look at it, say it, cover it, write it, check it

 

If you spell it correctly 3 times in a row, write a sentences with the word 'some' in.

WALT write a wanted poster 

 

Today we will be using all of the skills that we have learnt this week to write a wanted poster for the Evil Pea!

 

A wanted poster tells the reader:

  • what the character looks like
  • what they have done wrong 
  • what to do if they find them

 

You need to use your adjectives that you have sorted to write descriptive sentences about the Evil Pea. For example ...

 

 

Have you seen the Evil Pea?

He is mean and unkind to the vegetables. He stuck the carrot to the conveyor belt and he drew on the broccoli's face. 

The Evil Pea has a black mask and a red cape. He is sneaky and mischievous. 

Don't get too close because he might push you in the freezer!

If you find him, tell Year 1 at MFSA.

 

There is a template below for you to use or you can create your own. 

 

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

Each subject should take you an hour to complete.

 

Science WALA trees - deciduous and evergreen

 

This term we are going to be learning about plants. What do you already know?

Can you name some plants? What do plants need to survive? Are trees plants?

Our focus today is on trees. Watch the video below and then think about the trees that we can see around us at the moment. Do they have leaves? Why is this?

We are going to learn about two types of trees today. Deciduous & Evergreen.

Read through the Deciduous and Evergreen Trees pdf below to learn more about this and then complete the task. We would like you to sort the trees into deciduous and evergreen.

(Parents - the answers to this task are on the final page of the information sheet) 
 

Science WALT identify parts of a tree

 

As your second activity today, we would like to you label the different parts of a tree. To help you with this, there is a powerpoint with information about each part of a tree. There is also a song for you to watch below and a link to a website where you can do some research. 

 

One final activity for the week ... mindfulness doodling!

 

 

There is a template below for you to print if you can or you can draw your own. 

There is some guidance for adults to help explain this to the children.

 

Well done for completing another week of home learning.

We are so proud of you all, keep up the great work smiley

See you soon!
