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 sentence with the word 'out' in.

MATHS

Please remember, your child should be spending 1 hour on Maths a day. Half an hour of this lesson is delivered on zoom and the second half an hour is available in Teach it, Twist it and Deepen it activities. Please do not access these activities until after the Zoom session. Thank you.

WALT use numbers to 50

 

Following on from yesterday, we will be continuing to use numbers within 50. 

We will count in 10s first and then count the ones like this. 

Counting like this allows us to count quicker and more accurately. We can arrange objects into tens frames to make counting a lot easier. 

 

Have a go at the worksheets below and see which method is the easiest. 

PHONICS

You should be spending half an hour a day on your phonics activities.

 

Today our new sound is 'ea'.

This is an alternative spelling for 'e'.

Please go to book 24 - pages 3-4 online.

Have a go at reading the words and the spelling activities. 

From today, we will be using Floppy's Phonics online to support our Phonics lessons.

This is the programme that we use and follow in school, therefore it should be familiar to the children. Below is an information sheet about how to access the books and what to do on the pages with regards to activities. If there are any questions, please don't hesistate to contact us via email.

We will be doing one sound over two days from now on. The first day will require you to access the online area and the following day you will be given a written activity linked to that sound. 

Please don't go any further than the sound that we are learning but feel free to go back to any previous sounds or books.

ENGLISH

Please remember, your child should be spending 1 hour on English a day. 

Half an hour of this lesson is delivered on zoom and the second half an hour is available in the uploaded activities. Please do not access these activities until after the Zoom session. Thank you.

WALT research information

Today we would like you to carry out your own research on the internet. You are going to be using the Woodland Trust website to research a tree of your choice. There are lots to choose from so why not pick one you haven't heard of before and learn something knew! 

Once you have chosen your tree, we would like you to find out a key facts about its... 

1. Size

2. Leaves

3. Flowers

4. Fruits

 

Also, make a note of any fact that you found particularly interesting! 

We will be using this information over the next few days. 

There is a template for you to complete below or you can simply write down the facts that you find.

 

It is important that you remember how to stay safe online and ask an adult if there is anything that you are unsure of. 

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

Each subject should take you an hour to complete.

PE WALT aim at a target

 

Today we would like you to practice aiming towards a target.

We want you to continue to practice your underarm and overarm throwing, which one is better for hitting a target?

 

You can make your own targets in the garden or somewhere safe in the house.

Check with an adult first!

 

Remember ... position your feet first and always look at the target. 

Music WALT appraise music

 

In week 2, we reminded ourselves about pulse and rhythm and you had a go at finding these in the song ‘DON’T SING ME THE BLUES’.

We used body percussion and different movements when doing this.

Today, we will be appraising the song. Appraising means we will be judging it and saying what we think about it then giving reasons for these thoughts.

Have a think about these questions when you listen to the song:

Do you like the song?
What can you hear? (instruments etc.)
What is the style?
How is the song put together? (chorus, verse, introduction, instrumental solo)
How does this song make you feel?

 

Once you’ve listened to the song a couple of times and thought about answers to the questions, your job is to draw a picture to reflect your appraisal.

You may want to draw how the song makes you feel, the instruments you can hear, what the song makes you think about.

You may wish to listen to the song as you draw so you don’t forget or miss any features.

We would love to see your pictures so please send them to our year 1 email address.
