Our topic this term is

 

‘The Enchanted Woodland’

Week 2

Monday 8th June to Friday 12th June

 

Does woodland provide the perfect shelter?

Maths

This week’s maths focus is counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Please click here to access the home learning videos for week 7 and find the worksheets below.

Writing

Task 1: Click here to listen to the story Little Red Riding Hood. Can you use the cards to sequence the events in the story and retell it to a member of your family? If you don’t have access to a printer then you could draw pictures on a story map to help you sequence the story instead. We don’t want you to write the story just yet, only retell it. 

Task 2: Using the vocabulary wheel from last week (it is also available below), think of some super vocabulary and use this vocabulary to write simple sentences to describe the setting and characters in Little Red Riding Hood. For example: The naughty, little wolf hid behind the old oak tree.

Task 3: Have a go at practising your handwriting skills by using our cursive writing techniques you have been learning in the classroom. Here is our fourth set of Year 1 high frequency words.

Phonics/ Spelling

This week, we would like you to have a look at the Alphablocks Guide by clicking here. It is a wonderful guide to phonics and will act as revision for the phonemes you have learnt in school so far. We will attach this link every week so you can continue to revise your phonics along with a specific phoneme and activity.

 

Here is a list of other ways to access phonics activities:

Phonics Bloom

Phonics Play

CBeebies

Jolly Learning

 

This week our grammar focus is to continue using the suffix –ed, -ing and –ed where root words remain the same (hunted, hunting, hunted). Click here to play a game to help you learn to apply the rule.

Reading

Read, get silly and have fun!

 

Summer Reading Challenge 2020 launches online this week!

 

Better Libraries in partnership with The Reading Agency and Lincolnshire County Council are going online to launch this year’s challenge on Friday, 5th June at: summerreadingchallenge.org.uk or click here.

 

The Summer Reading challenge 2020 promises loads of silly fun. Once you have signed up you can head to Lincolnshire Libraries’ social media channels for fun activities and book recommendations and download the free library app Libby to borrow e-books to complete the challenge.

 

The theme for this year’s challenge is ‘Silly Squad’ and the aim is to encourage you lot to read whatever makes YOU happy, get silly and have fun!

Science

Activity 1: Find a quiet area to sit in to observe bird life. This could be your garden or perhaps you could find a quiet wooded area whilst out on your daily exercise? Count how many birds and different bird species you can see, making simple records. What can you see the birds doing in the trees? The bird identification sheet will help you to spot different species of birds. If you or anyone in your family has a pair of binoculars, then these might help you to watch the birds more closely.

Activity 2: Do insects have a favourite colour? We would like you to investigate if insects can tell the difference between colours and if they are attracted to some colours more than others. To do this investigation, place pieces of different coloured paper or card outside on the floor on a warm, sunny day. Then sit quietly nearby and observe the paper for an agreed amount of time, counting and recording how many insects land on each colour. Repeat the test twice during the day to see if you get the same results.

Project

Task 1: Can you build a nest or den for a woodland animal? Begin by matching pictures of animals to their woodland homes: a bird to a nest, a fox to a den, a badger to a sett or a rabbit to a warren. Build nests and dens outdoors using sticks, twigs and other collected items from the outdoors. Can you describe how you made it and what materials you used? Remember to post a picture of your nest or den on Twitter so that we can see it.

You can click here to use these BBC Bitesize resources to help you.

Task 2: Play the 'Who am I?’ game with the family that live with you. ‘Who am I?’ is a fun way to learn more about animals. Attach the name or a picture of a woodland animal to each member of your family’s back. Each person must then ask probing questions to discover which animal they are.

PE

It is so important for us to stay as active as we can during our time at home. There are lots of activities online that can help you do this in a fun way. Don’t forget that you can also complete simple activities in the garden, if you have one, like skipping, ball games and tag. Perhaps you could make your own obstacle course!

 

BBC Supermovers

Disney 10 Minute Shake Ups

Go Noodle

Cosmic Yoga

Why not try to record your activity on our daily record sheet. Are you managing to keep active for an average of 60 minutes per day, across the week?

Week 1 

Monday 1st June to Friday 5th June

Maths

Try your best with these lessons from White Rose. This week the Maths focus is based on measurement. Please click here  to access the daily videos for week 6 and find the worksheets below.

Writing

Task 1: After completing your woodland or garden walk (Project task) can you complete a word bank to help your writing come alive? Use adjectives, nouns and verbs to make your writing sound amazing. 

Use these words to write a recount of events: What you did? What did you see? Describe what things sounded like. Tell us about the things you collected. Remember a recount goes in order from start to finish.

Click here to have a go at this full stop game to remind you where they go.

Task 2: In your second project task we are making a crown, can you write a set of instructions? You can number them and add helpful drawings and diagrams. Don’t forget to check that your sentences make sense and that all your sentences have a full stop and capital letter. You could complete this on the computer and add digital images and photographs.

 

Task 3: Have a go at practising your handwriting skills by using our cursive writing techniques you have been learning in the classroom. Here is our third set of Year 1 high frequency words.

Reading

Keep up with the reading everyone. You’re working really hard! Remember Bug Club has lots of games and resources for you to use to support reading as well as phonics. Don’t forget to share any other reading you’re doing on our Year 1 Twitter page. You could also use the internet to read about your favourite pets, zoo animals or reptiles. How many interesting facts can you find?

Phonics and Spelling 

This week our sounds are alternative spellings for the ‘ay’ sounds. Using ‘ai’ and a_e’. Try our reading and writing activities below.

This week our grammar focus is to continue using the suffix –er , on verbs where the root word remains the same (helping, helped, helper). Have a go at reading words with –er, then try to write words with –er , after that can you write these words within a sentence that makes sense?

Science

This half term we are going to be looking at plants in Science. Have a look at these 2 activities.

 

Activity 1: Is all about deciduous and evergreen plants. Click here to watch a video from BBC BItesize to help you answer the question - Are plants the same all year round? After watching the video, can you identify deciduous or evergreen tress next time you take walk outside?

 

Activity 2: Have some fun at home with these working scientifically activities about a 'Spider Safari' and using lego to try and 'Slow the Drop' 

Project

Task 1: Visit a local woodland area to enjoy an outside walk (if it is safe to do so), using your ‘Super Senses’ to observe nature’s beauty and magic. In a small bag collect fallen treasures along the way. You may wish to take photographs of your surroundings and interesting things: woodland creatures, tree bark, leaves of different shapes and sizes, wild flowers or nuts and seeds (with adult supervision to ensure children do not touch or eat things that are found). Can you describe what you see? Have you found something tall? Short? Colourful? Spiky? Smooth? How many different adjectives can you use? You can use these creative words to help you write your recount.

 

Task 2: Make yourself a woodland crown. Use your woodland treasures (check with an adult that they are safe) to create a crown fit for a prince or princess. Use the instructions below to guide you or use your creativity to make something different.
