Year 1

Enchanted Woodland

 

Does woodland provide the perfect shelter?

If you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise! 

 

Welcome to our Summer term. We have lots of great learning ideas planned for this term, take a look and see which activities you would like to try.

 

Our topic this term is

 

‘The Enchanted Woodland’

We hope you all have a wonderful summer holiday. Be sure to have lots of fun in the sun, remember to keep safe and we can't wait to see you return in September as a Year 2! 

Week 8

Monday 20th July to Tuesday 21st July

Maths

We have set a few activities and challenges below which use a range of skills that you have learnt over your time in Year 1. We are only at school for two days but we have included more just in case you wanted some extra Maths over the holidays.  

Writing

Activity 1: You may know lots of things about your new teacher, Mrs Taylor, from listening to her assemblies and seeing her around the school. But she doesn’t know much about you. So, this week we would like you to complete share your favourite memories about Year 1. You can share these using Twitter or email them to enquiries@grimoldby.lincs.sch.uk to help Mrs Taylor to get to know you.

Activity 2: Over the summer holidays, it would be brilliant if you could keep a diary which you could bring in to school or upload on to our Twitter page sharing all of your adventures. You may like to share about a beautiful walk through a woodland, or maybe a trip to visit family or to the beach. Remember to use capital letters and full stops, and why not really impress your teachers by using adjectives too!

Phonics and Spelling

High frequency word splat- Practice writing your tricky words on pieces of paper or post it notes and ask an adult to shout out a keyword and you have to find it and splat it! You could also play the same game using phonemes instead.

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

Science

Over this week and the holidays, have a go at some of these working scientifically activities. Don’t forget to Tweet or even include the activity in your diary.

Project

Designer! Can you create your own enchanted woodland? Think about all of your learning from the past term- what things must an enchanted woodland include? You could draw it on plain paper or even make a 3D version using grass and flowers.

 

Artist! This is your turn to be creative. Go on a walk, either in a woodland, through a forest or even just through your village or town. What natural items can you collect? Perhaps a range of leaves, flower heads, petals, pine cones, daisies and buttercups. Use all of your natural items to create an enchanted woodland piece of art. You could make your pine cone into a fairy or a daisy headband.

PE

Over the summer, try to enjoy as much fresh air as possible. Go on bike rides, run around the garden and take lots of wonderful walks. On those not so sunny days, you can always keep active by following a Joe Wick’s Youtube workout or one of these activities below.
