Year One

Hello Nightingales! I am very sad that we are not able to see each other this week but we must keep ourselves safe and we shall be back in school soon. I have been busy recording lessons for you so you are able to continue learning at home. Parents - please contact me directly at Nightingales@pennycross.plymouth.sch.uk if you have any questions about the home learning or if you need to ask me anything relating to your child's learning at home or school. I will reschedule the 'parent's evening' appointments but if you were desperate to ask me anything then please email me. Thankyou in advance for helping your child continue their education at home and for helping them access what they need to do this. Mrs Cook laugh

Today in school we have planned an ‘experience’ day. This is an opportunity to explore drama and learn new things about a subject we might not know much about. I have given you 3 activities to complete below.

Activity 1:

 

Today, our character gets stuck on the MOON!! What do you know about the moon?....

I have put some links to video clips about the moon below. Watch them and talk about the things you have learnt with your grownup.

Activity 2:

 

You may want to think about what the moon looks like and brainstorm some describing words (adjectives) with your grownup. Use the first clip to help you with this. You could even try drawing the moon using the second clip to help you!

Activity 3:

 

Finally, I would like you to act out travelling to the moon in your plane…once you land on the moon you can start exploring! Can you walk like an astronaut? Is the ground rocky and hard? Can you see any signs of alien life?!

 

Parents – if possible, you could make an area in your house where you can shut the curtains to make it dark and put a white sheet on the ground. You could give you child a torch and watch them explore the MOON!

 

I have put a clips below of some cool music which makes me think of space. They might help you get into the part of a SPACE EXPLORER! cool

Phonics

 

We are going to start the day with our usual phonics sessions so don't forget what group you are in for phonics and only do one sound. Mrs Broadway and Miss Clarke's group are focusing on or (shut the door) and Mrs Dye and Mrs Norman's group are learning ur (nurse with a purse ). 

Please watch the You Tube link below where Mrs Suthers is teaching the air sound. This is how we teach this in school and the children are very familiar with this type of lesson.  After watching this lesson please see the powerpoint presentation below on air and then choose a book to read on the Oxford Owl website which I have mentioned below.

Phonics set 2 - air sound

Three letters, one sound 'air, that's not fair!

Mrs Broadway and Miss Clarke's RWI group air sound

Please watch the You Tube link below where Mrs Suthers is teaching the er sound. This is how we teach this in school and the children are very familiar with this type of lesson.  After watching this lesson please see the powerpoint presentation below on er and then choose a book to read on the Oxford Owl website which I have mentioned below.

Phonics set 3 - er sound

Today's sound is er - better letter ✉️ I love getting letters in the post!

If your child is able to write some words see if they can choose an er word and write their own sentence.  In class we have been learning about adjectives so if your child is able, see if they could incorporate an adjective into their sentence.
After your child has done their speed sound lesson please go to the main home learning page and at the bottom there is an Oxford Owl e books EYFS and KS1 link.  Please click on this link then click on Browse by age e books for age 4-5 or age 5-6 (depending on the reading ability of your child) and choose an e book to read.  Please note that you need to register in order to read a book.  This is free and is easy to do and this is an excellent resource.  

Maths

 

Today we are focusing on counting on from a given number.  Please see both the powerpoints below to help with this concept.  One is to 10 and the other is Counting on to 20.  The children need practise at this as they often start counting from one .  We always say put the biggest number in your head and count on.  This is preparing the children to use their mental skills when solving addition problems eg 9 +7= . There is no worksheet today but you could write some addition problems down eg 5+3=  , 8 + 4=    and ask the children which is the biggest number and count on in your head the rest.  This is an important concept to grasp.  

There is also a good Maths game below called Chopper Squad- More or Less.  Click on 1 to 20 or if appropriate 1 to 30 etc. Children have to work out which number is 1 more or 1 less than a certain number.  We have not done much on 1 less this term so this would be a good game to practise and recap today.

English

 

You should now be in the middle of writing your own vegetable story after you planned it yesterday.  I hope it's going well. Don't forget to refer to Mrs Cook's you tube teaching clips if you get stuck.  Remember, you need to check that your sentences make sense and don't just write one or two words.  You also need to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.  Try and keep your writing small and neat if possible. If you think that you have finished your story you need to look back and edit it.   That means you need to check carefully what you have written.  Have you left out any full stops?  Did you remember finger spaces?  Don't put capital letters in the middle of words.  What else could you do to improve your story and make it even better? Keep your work, name it and hand it in after half term. Mrs Broadway and I are really looking forward to reading your stories.

Friday Afternoons!

 

On Friday afternoons the children usually have golden time where they choose what they would like to play with while teachers hear the children read.  However, if you enjoyed yesterday's Art activity why don't you have a go at using the fruit and vegetables to print with.  What patterns can you make?  You could even print a face?

If your child is able to write some words see if they can choose an ur word and write their own sentence.  In class we have been learning about adjectives so if your child is able, see if they could incorporate an adjective into their sentence.
After your child has done their speed sound lesson please go to the main home learning page and at the bottom there is an Oxford Owl e books EYFS and KS1 link.  Please click on this link then click on Browse by age e books for age 4-5 or age 5-6 (depending on the reading ability of your child) and choose an e book to read.  Please note that you need to register in order to read a book.  This is free and is easy to do and this is an excellent resource.  

Maths

 

We are continuing on our work on addition.  Have a go at playing some games see link below.  Click on the Addition to 10 game on the Top Marks website and then play the Fruit Splat Addition game.  Click on Level 1 or 2 depending on what you think is appropriate for your child. 

Today there is no set worksheet for you to complete but you will need a dice, piece of paper, a writing pencil and objects to count (eg raisins or pasta pieces etc).  We would like you to draw 2 circles onto a piece of paper, roll a dice and count out that many objects then roll again and count out some more objects.  Can you write the number sentence underneath?  If you find this easy then draw 3 circles and add the objects altogether.  If you haven't got a dice then maybe you could write some numbers onto a piece of card or paper and pick a number.  Please see the Maths Slide below to give you an idea.

Maths addition dice activity

Today you are going to look at your plan that you did yesterday and start to write your story.  Mrs Cook is going to model the first part then it's over to you to write your story.  Watch the clip carefully and start to write your story.  We would like you to spend 2 days (Thursday and Friday) writing your story.  Then when you have finished we would like you to re read your story and go back, check and improve it.  Could you add anything else to your sentences eg. Have you missed out any adjectives? Have you remembered your full stops, capital letters and finger spaces? etc.  Have you used the correct words? Could you use some other words that may be more suitable? Please keep your work and bring it into school when we return after half term.  Thank you.

How to write your story

This video is to help you child know how to turn their plan into a story.

Art

 

In Art we are learning about the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo who was born in 1527.  He painted portraits of people made out of different types of fruit, vegetables, meat and fish.  Look at the Art Slides below to see examples of his work.  Next, we would like your child to make a face using fruit and vegetables as shown in the Art slides.  Think carefully about which vegetable or fruit would be best used for hair, cheeks etc. If possible please could you take a photo of your vegetable/fruit face and email the school or bring the photo with you when we return to school.  If this is difficult don't worry- just have fun creating your own face!

If you have dominoes at home maybe you could show your child how to play.  You would be surprised that not many children know how to play dominoes!  Talk to the children about which side has more or less, fewer or greater spots.  How many spots are there in totol on your domino? There is a good game called Robot Addition to play and  its on the Top Marks website.  if focuses on addition to 10 or 20.  Please see link below.

Thank you again to Mrs Cook and Mrs Gill for the super English clips yesterday.  Today the children will be attempting to plan their own story based on Oliver's Vegetables.  They will be changing a certain part of the story and you will need to make your plan on the sheets below.  There are 3 sheets  for you to use for your plan - page 1. page 2 and page 3.  Listen to Mrs Cook carefully so you know which sheet you should be using.  By the end of this session you will have planned what you are going to write ready for tomorrow.  As parents have joined the story mid way through I will just summarize which  sentences we have used in class to compile our story.  Here we go!

 

Oliver charged around the garden .  He tugged at some leaves.  The carrot was long and hairy (Plot point 1)

On Tuesday Oliver hunted again.  He found green and wrinkly spinach.  "That was yummy !" said Oliver. (Plot point 2)

On Wednesday he found giant leaves.  "I found you !" thought Oliver. Grandpa smiled. That is long,red, shiny rhubarb. (Plot point 3)

On Thursday the rain was splattering on the grass. Oliver felt miserable.The slugs and snails were demolishing the cabbages. (Plot point 4)

On Friday , Oliver searched in the brown, dirty soil. The beetroot was as red as blood. Oliver enjoyed munching the beetroot salad.  (Plot point 5)

On Saturday Oliver played cricket.  The ball rolled into some peas. Oliver loved Grandma's pea soup. (Plot point 6)

 

Please note that a plot point is represented by a circle on your child's planning sheet.

 

So over a week we have written 3 sentences each day and we have now made the story complete. Now on your sheet you are just going to write key words or phrases that you will use tomorrow for your written story. Don't write the whole sentence on the sheet as you will run out of room. These are just little words or phrases that you need to jot down on your plan so that you will be ready to write full sentences tomorrow using all the skills that we have taught you over the weeks.  

Sorry for delay I've just added the planning sheets that you need for today's session.Thanks

Today in Art we will be drawing some still life pictures (these are objects that are not alive but in a pleasing arrangement!) Artists need to be careful not to move their designs when drawing as it will affect the picture.  Look at the Art Slides below - What can the children see? What do they notice about the paintings? Look at the still life work of Cezanne and Matisse.  When the children are looking at the paintings try and introduce some artistic vocabulary such as bold, soft and contrast.

Art Slide page 1

We would like you to arrange your own still life design using, bowls, jugs, a tablecloth and fruit.  Draw the arrangement on a piece of white A4 paper using a writing pencil and this time use coloured pencils to help create a similar style of picture to the artists mentioned previously.

Maths

 

Today in maths we wanted the children to have hands on experience of some mathematical equipment called Numicon that we have in class.  I apologize for posting a few You Tube clips about this but I feel that these are important and they are only short so won't take up much of your time.

 

Firstly,  we are going to recap what we did yesterday (1 more work) using the game link below.    Click on the + train truck then click on up to 10- one more.  If your child finds this easy then click on up to 20 -one more.   

This week we are introducing some hands on Maths equipment called Numicon that helps children to count, work out addition, subtraction problems etc. Obviously, this is very difficult at home but I have put together a few You Tube clips to help introduce this concept to the children.  The You Tube link below is for parents information and not really aimed for the children, unless you think that they are appropriate . This is just to give you an idea of how flexible  and versatile this type of Maths equipment is.  

Introduction to Numicon

Numicon is a hands on, practical way of representing number.

Please watch the You tube links below with your child to help them understand a little bit about how Numicon works.

Numicon Madness

The Ladybirds played a game using Numicon. We had great fun!

The You Tube link below is is for parent information to help teach the children this concept of using Numicon for addition. Please could your child complete the addition sheet below that you think would be most appropriate.

First of all, Mrs Broadway and I would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Cook for teaching and letting us film the English lessons and also to Mrs Gill who has done a fantastic job of being film director!.  I'm sure that it has given you a huge insight into what we are doing in Year One and you maybe surprised at the level of difficulty that some of these lessons present.  I hope that this  demonstrates to you just how important it is to use words and to extend and broaden our children's range of vocabulary,  Our expectations of the children are high and this proves that the children are very capable at great things. Please don't be afraid to use aspirational words. We have been so pleased and amazed at how well the children have embraced this structured way of teaching and the children are constantly surprising us with their huge range of vocabulary.   Your child will need a piece of paper and a writing pencil.  Get ready to write your 3 sentences!

 

Please bear with us as Mrs Cook has been uploading her English lessons during her lunch hour and this can be quite a time consuming business!

Art

 

In our Art session today we would like your child to understand that there are several different pencil techniques that they can use when drawing objects.  Later we would like your child to use these techniques to make an observational drawing of a vegetable, such as a cauliflower, mushroom, potato etc.

 

Watch the you tube clip below to see a variety of pencil techniques (eg hatching, cross hatching, stippling, scumbling, back and forth stroke etc)

Pencil Shading Techniques: Introduction

Learn realistic shading techniques to add texture to your line drawings using different pencil shading techniques!

After watching this clip we would like you to fold a piece of white A4 paper into 8 sections and do a different pencil technique in each box so in total there should be 8 different pencil techniques used.  Please keep this piece of paper so that we can put it in their Art book when we return.

Art slide page 1

Art slide page 2

Art slide page 3

Art slide page 4

After looking at the art slides above and practising your pencil techniques we would like you to make an observational drawing of a vegetable.  You will need a piece of white A4 paper, a writing pencil and if possible a real vegetable such as a potato, carrot, brocolli or mushroom or whatever vegetable you have lying around in the fridge! If you do not have a vegetable then look at the first slide and pick a vegetable from there to copy.  Please do not use coloured pencils to draw your vegetable, keep it black and white.  While your child is drawing encourage them to look carefully at the vegetable and focus on the outline, look at the shading - where does the light hit? Can you see any bumps? What can you see on the leaves or stalk of your vegetable?  Please keep your work and bring it in so that we can put it into their Art books when they return.   Good luck !

Week Beginning Monday 19th October- Mrs Broadway/Miss Clarke's Class 2020(Goldfinches)

 

Thank you for logging on and helping your child to access their home learning.  We have tried to make this as clear as we possibly can.  The children are very familiar with these types of lessons so they should be fine at home.  Please keep any of your child's work so that we may see it when we return.  As you are aware, these are uncertain times and we are doing our utmost to ensure your child receives all the school support that we can so please bear in mind if we have any technical issues etc. Thank you for being a supportive Year 1 class and please let us know if you experience any problems so that we can help.

Our first lesson in the morning is phonics.  The children are either in Mrs Broadway/Miss Clarke's group OR Mrs Dye/Mrs Norman's group.  Your child will know which group they are in.  Please focus on one of the lessons below which is relevant to your child.  Mrs Broadway/Miss Clarke's  group will be learning oo and Mrs Dye/Mrs Norman's group will be learning o-e.
Please watch the You Tube link below where Mrs Suthers is teaching the oo sound, she briefly recaps ow which the children already know.  This is how we teach this in school and the children are very familiar with this type of lesson.  After watching this lesson please see the powerpoint presentation below on oo and then choose a book to read on the Oxford Owl website which I have mentioned below.

Phonics set 2 - oo sound

If your child is able to write some oo words see if they can choose an oo word and write their own sentence.  In class we have been learning about adjectives so if your child is able see if they could incorporate an adjective into their sentence.
Please watch the You Tube link below where Mrs Suthers is teaching the o-e sound, she briefly recaps u-e which the children already know.  This is how we teach this in school and the children are very familiar with this type of lesson.  After watching this lesson please see the powerpoint presentation below on o-e and then choose a book to read on the Oxford Owl website which I have mentioned below.

Phonics set 3 - o-e sound

Mrs Dye and Mrs Norman's Read Write Inc group

If your child is able to write some o-e words see if they can choose an o-e word and write their own sentence.  In class we have been learning about adjectives so if your child is able see if they could incorporate an adjective into their sentence.
After your child has done their speed sound lesson please go to the main home learning page and at the bottom there is an Oxford Owl ebooks EYFS and KS1 link.  Please click on this link then click on Browse by age e books for age 4-5 or age 5-6 (depending on the reading ability of your child) and choose an e book to read.  Please note that you need to register in order to read a book.  This is free and is easy to do and this is an excellent resource.  

Maths

 

This week in Maths we are focusing on more/less/fewer/greater and addition work.  Today we would like you to concentrate on more and less  work.  Please look at the powerpoints below for help and then choose a worksheet or worksheets which you think would be appropriate for your child.

For English we are continuing our work following the book Olivers Vegetables.  Mrs Cook is very kindly going to record her English lesson so that the children will be able to follow her instructions.  The children produced some fantastic sentences last week writing about different vegetables using a variety of vocabulary.  In this lesson the children will be writing 3 sentences.  Please keep this piece of writing and return to school.  We usually do our English lesson after play so please bear in mind any technical glitches that may occur and that Mrs Cook needs time to upload the recording.  Thanks for your patience.

Writing Chunk 1 disclaimer!

I apologise I managed to confuse the beetroot with radishes during the first video!! It is beetroot Oliver finds, not radishes. I do realise in the next clip! Sorry for the confusion, Mrs Cook.

Writing Chunk 1 (Monday)

Writing Chunk 2 (Monday)

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

Writing Chunk 3 (Monday)

This week is Art week and for our first session we would like you to draw a self portrait.  You will need a piece of A4 paper, a mirror and a writing pencil.  Please do not use any coloured pencils.  Talk about the different features of their face eg eyelids, forehead,etc.  (We have been learning body parts for our Science lessons this term too) and get them to look really closely at their features.  Have they got any freckles etc ?  Please try and encourage your child to use the whole of the A4 piece of paper as they will find this tricky.  See the link below for help.  We would like your child to to do a full face portrait.  Thank you 

Week Beginning 13.7.20

 

This week is Outdoors Week!

 

Normally at this time in the year we would be doing outdoors week at school! So this week I have provided a variety of outdoor activities that you can try at home. We are continuing to use Super Sentence Stackers to inspire creative writing. I hope that is going well for you at home. Please email me with some of your writing as I would love to see it and hear how you find using Sentence Stackers at home!

For Maths this week, each day has a different area of maths to recap. We have learnt all these areas in depth so your child should not need too much support to complete these activities. 

 

Have a lovely week!

From Miss Fielding

Week beginning 6.7.20

 

This week we are continuing to use the Super Sentence Stackers videos to inspire writing. I have also planned a few extra activities inspired by another Julia Donaldson book: Room on the Broom!

Below you will find all the learning activities that I have provided for you, using the topic ‘Room on the Broom’, so I hope you have fun with them all this week. Please use the daily English activities below by clicking onto the pdf and clicking the video links. Keep going with the daily Maths activities each day and spread out the topic learning throughout the week. I have organised the topic learning into days to give you some idea about how we would structure our learning in school through the week.

I hope you are all still enjoying daily reading and are continuing with the RWI live lessons on Youtube. Don’t forget that you can contact me with any questions and I love seeing your super work sent in!

Have a lovely week!

From Miss Fielding

 

Remember that you can watch Room on the Broom using BBC IPlayer. I loved watching this version over the weekend!

English

Here is this weeks English learning. Please use the pdf to get the links of the video. I have also added a picture of the chart if this is useful.

Maths

 

This week in maths, we are focusing on adding up to 30! I have included a variety of activities and online games to play to help you with this. Remember to use everyday objects around the house to help you count. We will be using numicon, number lines, cubes and our fingers in school to help us add numbers together.

Weekly Maths Quiz

 

After a little break for the week, I have made another maths quiz for you to do to test your knowledge of this weeks work.

This weeks quiz is about addition to 30. After you have finished this weeks work, have a go at the quiz!

 

Good luck!

Topic

 

This week, Miss Dade has created some more science, RE and PE learning for us to do. I have also added a few ideas linked to our weekly story: Room on the Broom!

 

Monday

This weeks RE learning is about Hanukkah. Please look at the powerpoint then fill in the worksheet by drawing the three important symbols and filling in the gaps in the sentences. There is also an extra activity to make your own dreidel.

 

Tuesday

Read to the story of Room on the Broom using the pdf story. Please use the DERIC questions provided below for you to try and answer with your parent at home. Remember to answer in full sentences and give reasons for your answer.

In the story, the witch chose to make a potion to create a magical new broom. If you could cast a magical spell by creating a potion, what would you do? Maybe you would make a potion to turn into a princess. Or maybe you could use your potion to become invisible!

Use the worksheet to create your own potion. What would it do and why have you chosen that? Remember to write in full sentences and use ‘because’ and ‘and’ in you sentences to explain your reasons.

Wednesday

 

Today we are going to look at how we can classify animals into their different groups dependent on what they look like and where they live. We will be looking at mammals, amphibians, birds, reptiles and insects.
Your task after looking at all of these different groups of animals, will be to cut and stick the pictures of animals into the correct box.

Thursday

 

Today we have another science lesson about animals and today we are learning about herbivores, omnivores and carnivores. Read through the PowerPoint to learn facts and then complete the worksheet attached. 

Friday 

 

Today brings you some PE to complete! Over the next two weeks you are going to be practising some circuits and comparing your progress next week to see if you have got any better. Have a look at the PowerPoint then fill in the sheet to make a log of how you are doing.

Just for fun!

 

Science Experiment

Miss Fielding was inspired this week by witch’s potions and decided to create her own magic potion at home. She used baking soda (or you could use bicarbonate of soda), white vinegar, food colouring and glitter to create an exploding potion. Why don’t you have a go! Watch the video to see step-by-step instructions and let me know how your potions go!

I hope you have a lovely week at home. Please contact me on my email: sfielding@pennycross.plymouth.sch.uk if you need any support or would like to share some of the work you’ve been doing.

See you soon!

Week Beginning 29.6.20

 

This week, as we get closer to the summer holidays, we are slightly changing the way we provide home learning. Across the whole school, we are using a new way to provide English learning which will hopefully allow you to access it at home more easily without requiring worksheets or printing. 

Please watch the video of Miss Fielding below explaining how it all works and look at the pdf document where you will find all of the information. 

Miss Fielding explaining this weeks English learning

Maths

 

This week in Maths we are focusing on what is half and a quarter of a shape and using the more than, less than and equal to sign. (<>=).  Remember the crocodile eats the biggest number! eg   4 <  8 .

Monday

 

Today we are focusing on what is half a shape.  Look at the information below and try and complete the sheets.

Tuesday

 

Today we are focusing on what quarters are.  After you have watched the information below see if you can cut out a circle, square and rectangle and fold them in half and then into quarters.  Then try and colour one quarter in.  See if you can also try the sheet below.

Wednesday

 

Today you are going to put different pizza toppings on a half or quarter of a pizza.  Follow the instructions below and cut out the correct toppings such as cheese, peppers, tomatoes, pepperoni and mushroom and put them on the correct part of your pizza.

Thursday

 

Today we are focusing on the more than, less than and equal sign. If you complete the sheet below then why not make up your own.

Friday

 

Today you need a dice.  You need to roll the dice and write down the number that is 1 more or 1 less.  To make this more challenging use 2 or even 3 die!  If you haven't got a dice then it doesn't matter, just write some numbers on cards, turn them over and decide which number is 1 more or 1 less.  If you are confident with numbers to 20 then see if you can go higher!

Topic ideas

 

Our theme this week is minibeasts and our student Miss Dade has provided the topic ideas so a big thank you to Miss Dade!  Please don't feel pressured to do all of these activities, these are just suggestions. We know how hard it is homeschooling!  It has been lovely talking to parents and children in Year One.  We would love to see any work that you do at home.  We have already seen videos of maths and photos of english and topic work done at home.  It's great to see how hard you are all working. Well done and keep going!

Monday

 

Look at the information provided below  and find out about different types of minibeasts.  Can you label the different parts of a ladybird?

Tuesday

 

Read the story of Superworm (lots of you may already have this book at home) which is attached below and then use the sheets below to design your own superhero or superminibeast!  Or you could just draw your new character on a sheet of paper. It would be lovely to see some some of your superhero characters.

Wednesday

 

Look at the information below and see if you can draw the different stages of the life cycle of a butterfly.

Thursday

 

Today we are recapping our knowledge about the important signs and symbols of the Jewish religion. Look at the information below to help.

Spellings Update 24.6.20

 

It was lovely to hear from a few parents this week. It sounds like lots of you are trying very hard with the home learning. I'm very impressed!

A few parents have been continuing to practise spellings with their children and continuing testing them each week. Please don't worry if you have not been doing this. It is not something that is necessary however it is a good idea to keep practising.

Some parents have been asking about what to do next following the weekly spellings. Here is the next booklet with the 'red' words to practise each week.

 

From Miss Fielding

Week beginning 22.6.20

 

This week is all about Cinderella.

 

Here are the activities we have provided for you this week, based around the Cinderella story. This week, my PGCE student,

Miss Dade has provided many of the topic activities for you and I know she would love to see some of your home learning. If you are able to send me any examples of your learning, I always love to see them!

My email address is emarks@pennycross.plymouth.sch.uk and I can show them to Miss Dade from there as well.

 

Please remember that we understand home learning can be a little over-whelming at times and we appreciate anything that you are doing at home. As the summer holidays approach we will be changing how we support home learning with the hopes it will make home schooling a little easier for you. I hope you have a lovely week, from Mrs Cook.

English

 

Monday

Have a go at reading the story of Cinderella and answering some questions about it on the sheet provided. There is also a PDF of the story with pictures for you to look at. Is this version of the story different from other versions you may have read or watched? Talk about the similarities and differences with a grown up.

Tuesday

Cinderella received an invitation to the ball! Have you ever been to a special party? What was really good about it? Maybe there was an entertainer and some yummy food? You can write your own invitation to a fun party, using the sheet below.

Wednesday

The most magical scene in Cinderella is when the Fairy Godmother performs the ‘Bibbity-bobbity-boo’ spell. You can find a clip of this in the ‘PE’ section below. Look at these other spells from Disney movies. What do you notice about the words?

Use the sheet to make up your own magic spell. You can be as creative as you like! There is space for you to draw your spell as well.

Thursday

Cinderella has some sad times in the story and some happy times. How do you think she is feeling at different points in the story? Use this sheet to write a diary entry as if you were Cinderella, talking about how she feels.

Friday

The Prince goes to a lot of trouble to find Cinderella with the glass slipper but there must be a better way! When things go missing, we can create a poster to help find them. Use this sheet to help you plan your missing person poster for Cinderella and then draw your poster with all the details on it.

Maths

 

This week we are learning about time. Please recap the days of the week and months of the year with your children as well as learning to tell the time using the activity sheets below. There are loads of helpful teaching videos on Youtube so please use these to help you with home learning.

Listen to the story of Beauty and The Beast. Please use the DERIC questions provided below for you to try and answer with your parent at home. Remember to answer in full sentences and give reasons for your answer.

Beauty and the Beast, Read by Miss Fielding

Still image for this video

Tuesday

In the new version of ‘Beauty and The Beast’, Belle often visits the Library and loves to read!

Here is the new version of Disney’s ‘Beauty and The Beast’ and during the opening scene, it shows Belle wandering through the village on her way to return one of her favourite books.

In year one we love reading and sharing our books. Can you write a list of all your favourite books? 

I have attached below a book recommendation worksheet that you could do to recommend a favourite book to a friend. Please have a go at this and then if you would like, please send it to me. I may even send it on to a friend or share it on Facebook to see if anyone would like to read your favourite book.

Please send it to sfielding@pennycross.plymouth.sch.uk

Wednesday

Recap the story again. Can you tell the story to your grownup? Today, we are going to be using our senses to describe a scene in the Beauty and the Beast film. Please watch the film and while you are watching, make notes of the things the Beauty's Dad could see, hear, touch, smell and what he might feel. 

Using the worksheet below, can you write up your ideas in full sentences using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. Remember to add in some of the writing techniques we have been learning to make our writing wow a reader!

 

English Writing Activity (Wednesday) - Beauty's dad gets lost in the forest

Still image for this video

Thursday

Today we are looking at settings. Using the worksheet, can you describe the castle that the merchant found on his travels. Why not research on the internet for some famous and beautiful castles to inspire you. 

Before writing, you could brainstorm your ideas in a mind map. First thinking about the adjectives you would use to describe the castle, and then choosing three adjectives to make a descriptive ‘power of three’. Then once you have organised your ideas, you can start writing. Remember to use all your ideas and write in full sentences, using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces!

Friday

Today, I would like you to innovate the story to make it your own. Let’s try and change The Beast. Maybe you could change him to another scary animal? Using the worksheet template below, can you draw your new character and describe it using adjectives. If you need some extra support, I have included a monster word mat with some important words and nice adjectives on to help you get started.

Extra English Activities

If you would like to continue your learning and challenge yourself with an extra activity, why not re-write the story using your new ‘beast’ character! I have included a story plan below to help you structure and plan your story. Make it creative and exciting, and remember to use all the things we have been learning in school when we write our stories. If you would like to make it into a book, there is a zig-zag book sheet below from that we used for our Jack and the Beanstalk stories and a picture of instructions on how to fold it if you would like to make your very own book. If you prefer to write on plain or lined paper from home, that is fine too!

If you decide to do this challenge, I would love to see your finished stories so please ask your grownups to send me a picture of your stories at sfielding@pennycross.plymouth.sch.uk

Maths

 

This week in maths, we are learning about money. We will be recognising different forms of money, ordering money, adding and taking away money, calculating how much something costs and giving change. Please complete the below tasks for each day and go through the pictures of money daily to help with memory! There is also the weekly Kahoot quiz to complete at the end of the week!

 

If you are able to, please show children real money and also use it to complete activities if you are unable to print out worksheets! 

Use the shopping list above to answer these questions below. I have added the shopping list as a PDF as well if you would like to print it out.

To be completed each day:

Go through the below coins and notes with your child each day to test their understanding and memory to recognise different forms of money. Ask them to tell you what they are, remembering to say pence or pounds. 

Weekly Maths Quiz

 

Well done to Rasmitha, Barnie, Max, Abigail, Laci, Neavey-Mai and even Talliah from foundation who completed last weeks quiz!

 

Here is this week’s maths Kahoot quiz! It is all about money! Please have a go at the quiz when you have completed this week’s maths learning.

 

Good luck!  From Miss Fielding

Science

 

In Beauty and the Beast, Belle’s father went out to the forest near the castle to collect Belle a rose! In our science learning this week, we are focusing on common plants.

A couple of weeks ago we looked at parts of a plant, in particular flowers. Here are some new activities that you can do to remind yourself of what you learnt. Can you spot any flowers near where you live? Why not go on a hunt around where you live to find flowers?

I have also added an activity which asks you to look at the parts of a flowering plant. Please go through the Powerpoint first to give you some background information before you label the plant.

This week, the new learning is about common flowers you might find. Some of these common flowers and plants were in the flower hunt above. Please have a go at the below activity which asks you to join up the names of the plants with its correct picture.

Miss Fielding having fun doing science!

Last week we asked you to have a go at planting your own pea seed (or any seed) to go alongside our learning of Princess and the Pea, so Miss Fielding had a go at home! 
Here is Miss Fielding’s tomato, chilli and basil plants.

Geography

 

This week we are continuing our learning of the continents and I would like you to focus on the continent of Europe. Here is a GoJetters PowerPoint PDF explaining some of the key facts about Europe.

Did you know that Beauty and The Beast is set in France! That is one of the countries in Europe.

Can you make a list of all of the countries in Europe? Why not choose one country and do some research about it? What sort of animals live there? What food do they eat? What language do they speak?

 

Why not film a video pretending to be a news reporter and tell your audience all the facts that you know about your chosen country! If you do this, remember to share your video with us so we can see your super work!

Art and Design Technology

 

For Art and Design this week, I was inspired by the beautiful stained glass windows in the film. Here are two pictures below to have a look at!

I would like you to have a go at recreating one of these. You could use paper and pencils to do a drawing, maybe even use different coloured paper to make your own stained glass window.

 

Have a look at the video below that shows someone making their own stained glass window out of black paper and tissue paper.

Here is an easier version to help you:

Maybe you could create your own colourful window picture and put it up on your window for friends to see when they walk outside your house!

Just for fun!

I hope you have a lovely week at home. Please contact the school if you have any questions, or contact your teacher directly. We would love to hear from you and see some of your lovely work!

Maths Update 8.6.20

 

Here is another new Kahoot quiz to try this week after you have completed all the maths tasks. This quiz is about number bonds to 20. Remember it is not always about speed and more about being accurate! 

Good luck :)

Week beginning 8th June 2020

 

Princess and the Pea

This week is all about the Princess and the pea story and writing instructions.  This week we would like you to follow instructions and plant a seed.  You will need to find a pot, a seed and some compost.  In school we will be planting pea seeds to tie in with our Princess and the pea theme but you could plant any seed that you have at home.  You won't need your seed until Thursday so hopefully that will give you enough time to sort everything that you may need.  Happy planting and let us know how you get on!

English

 

Monday

 

Please read the story of the Princess and the pea below.

Talk about what it would be like to be in a storm.  Watch the you tube clip below and talk about what you would see, hear and feel?  Don't forget to think about lots of adjectives.  Can you write some sentences using the power of three?

Tuesday

 

In order for us to be able to write instructions we need to understand what an imperative verb or 'bossy' verb is.  See the powerpoint below and watch the clip all about imperative verbs and try and complete the sheet below.

Wednesday

 

Watch the you tube clip below about what happens if you don't follow instructions carefully.  Remember that you must be very clear when you are writing your instructions.  See the powerpoint below about how to make a jam sandwich then cut out and sequence the pictures of how to make a jam sandwich in the correct order.  Then try and write instructions how to make a jam sandwich but this time can you add in time connectives eg first, next, 

then, after that, finally.

Thursday and Friday

 

I found a really useful you tube clip about how you plant a seed.  It also tells you how to write instructions.  In the clip it shows you joined up writing but don't worry about that we won't be joining up our letter like this!  Then we would like you to write your own instructions about how to plant a seed using the sheet below.  Remember to write down what equipment you will need.  Give each instruction a number.  Draw a picture to go with the instruction and remember to use the imperative words (bossy verbs) like put, push, fill, etc.  Also try and use time connectives such as first, next, then, after that and finally.

Maths

 

This week we are learning all about addition and number bonds to 10 and 20 (pairs of numbers that add up to 10 and 20 )  and also subtraction.  Have a try at the activities below.  On a couple of days i have put 2 sheets, just choose the sheet that is best suited to you.  Don't forget you can use raisins or pasta pieces to help you work out your pairs of numbers to 10 or 20.  Then see if you are able to learn your number bonds.

History

 

The princess and the pea story is set in a castle.  Look at the powerpoints below and see if you can learn about the different parts of a castle.  Can you find out if there are any castles near to where you live?

Science

 

Have fun planting your seeds and see if you can keep a diary of how your seed grows.  Can you measure how tall your seed has grown ? Can you draw what it looks like over a period of time? This week we have been learning about where vegetables are grown. Look at the powerpoints below and watch the Tesco farm to fork clips about how different vegetables (peas, brocolli, potatoes, carrots, sweetcorn, peppers) are grown. Can you sort the vegetables into the correct category of whether we eat the flower, stem or root of the plant etc.

Art - Wax resist crayon picture

Click on the link below and try to copy the picture of the princess on top of all the mattresses. The website gives you a detailed step by step guide of how to complete the picture. You will need some crayons and watercolour paints used as a wash.  The picture looks very effective!

Design and Technology - Can you design your own seed packet?

Welcome to Year 1's home learning page. Below you will find some activities and websites to help support your child's learning at home.

 

We thought it might be helpful to provide you with a sample lockdown home learning timetable. In your family, you might decide to work really hard in the mornings and then in the afternoon have some free time. It is of course fine to structure your day differently and find a structure that suits your child and family as we recognise families have other commitments at this time. The timetable is provided as a guide.

Week beginning 01.06.2020

 

This week is all about Aladdin & the desert.

 

We hope you enjoy the learning tasks we have got for you this week which are around the theme of Aladdin and the desert. The weather has been lovely and hot and we hope you have been able to get out and enjoy it. Remember to stay safe and always wear sun cream and a hat when you are out.

English

 

Monday

Please read the story of Aladdin and use the DERIC questions provided to help your comprehension of the story.

Tuesday

 

Aladdin found a lamp with a magic genie in it. Can you help describe it? Use the success grid on the sheet to help you remember which techniques to use for brilliant writing.

Wednesday

 

What would you do if you had 3 wishes? We would love to find out! Use this sheet to write your 3 wishes down.

Thursday

 

Please read through these fact-files about animals you can find in the desert with an adult. What animal is your favourite? We would like you to jot down some notes about your favourite animal from these fact-files and tomorrow you can create your own fact sheet.

Friday

 

Now it is time to create your own fun fact sheet about the desert animal you chose. You can use this worksheet as a template for your fact sheet. Remember the sentences need to be statements (true facts), just like the ones we practised when you were learning to write a fact sheet about pets before lockdown. We would love to read your fact sheets so please send us a picture to the Pennycross email if you can!

Maths

 

This week we are going to be looking at symmetry. We have added some different fun activities for you to do each day.

In school we will be starting with creating our own symmetrical pictures, so I have included a picture of how you could do this with Lego, but you could use anything you have at home to help you to do this. Another fun idea would be to make a painted symmetrical butterfly by painting one side and folding you paper in half to print a symmetrical wing on the other side. Have fun creating symmetry at home!

Geography

 

Activity 1: The story of Aladdin is set in South Asia so we would like you to learn more about South Asia and how it compares to the United Kingdom. Use the PDF powerpoint below to learn about this. Then, complete the cut & stick activity to show which pictures belong in which country.

 

Activity 2: Now let's compare the Sahara Desert with the city we live in - Plymouth. Look at the PDF powerpoint to learn more and see if you can complete some mind maps about Plymouth and South Asia.

Science

 

Can you compare some plants you may find in the desert with plants that we can find here in Plymouth? Use the worksheet to look at some of the different plants and answer some questions. 

Art

 

Idea 1: Look at the collage below of a desert. Can you create your own desert collage by tearing pieces of coloured paper?

 

Idea 2: Can you design some new clothes for Aladdin as a Prince and as a 'street rat' (poor boy). You can use these worksheets as templates for your designs.

Just for Fun

 

Here are some ideas for you to do for fun at home. Can you make a fruit skewer in a symmetrical pattern? Can you make some funky bangles and turn yourself into a magical genie? Here are some pictures to inspire you.

Week beginning: 18.05.2020

 

This week is all about Rapunzel!

 

Below you will find all of the learning activities that I have provided for you this week. I haven't added any specific PE activities so please use Joe Wicks, Cosmic Yoga and your daily exercise allowance as it suits with your family routines. I also haven't set a specific Music task this week but I will be using some songs from the film 'Tangled' in school to sing and enjoy. I hope you have fun this week, from Mrs Cook laugh

English

 

Remember to keep up with daily speed sound practise - RWI provide lessons on their website to assist you. It is also important to keep reading books at home. Recently Miss Fielding posted a video on the facebook page showing you how to access more reading books online via two different sites. I hope you found this helpful.

 

Monday

 

Share the story of Rapunzel together with a grown up. I have added some DERIC questions in a document below for you to ask your child as you read the story together. The document explains a little more about what DERIC is if you are unsure. I have also included a video of me reading the story for you.

Rapunzel read by Mrs Cook

Tuesday

 

Today I would like you to write a book review for the story of Rapunzel. It is important to talk about our opinions and thoughts about different stories. Maybe you have a different version of the story at home that you prefer? Use this worksheet to help you write your review.

Wednesday

 

Today I would like you to start innovating the story with your own choices. You are going to change the villain (the witch) to a new character and also design a new type of tower for Rapunzel to be kept in. Further down this page there is a 'Famous Towers' powerpoint which might give you some inspiration for your new tower design. Use these worksheets to help you create your changes and describe them using lots of brilliant adjectives.

Thursday

 

Now you know the story well and have designed some changes to innovate your story, it is time to plan what you are going to write. Use this worksheet to help you plan the different stages of your story. Then, tomorrow you can keep this handy whilst you write your innovated story.

Friday

 

Now it is time to write your own version of Rapunzel! Use all the work you have completed this week to help you. I have added a video of a modelled write to help you remember those key things - capital letter, finger spaces, Fred-fingers and full stops! Watch this before you start for some tips on how to make your story really good. There is also a word mat below to help you with some of those tricky words.

How to write your story

Maths

 

Our Maths learning this week is about measuring height and length. To begin this topic, it might be nice for you to keep a monthly height chart at home to see how much you grow each month! I have included a measuring chart and a recording table here if you would like to do this at home. 

Monday

 

Let's learn how to measure using a ruler (or objects around the home). I have made a video for you to show how to do this and there is also a handy powerpoint in the documents below.

Once you know how to measure, have a go at measuring some objects around your home. Then, I have some towers for you to measure as well.

How to use a ruler

Tuesday

 

This worksheet is about ordering heights. Use your ruler to help you measure accurately - no guessing allowed! smiley

Wednesday

 

Use these worksheets to help you measure part of an object by 2 and 5 centimetres.

 

Extension: Comparing lengths and heights in your family. Use this table to help you predict and record the different measurements in your family, if you like.

Thursday

 

Use this worksheet to help you measure the differences between objects.

For example:

 

First you need to measure each picture and record the measurement next to it. If the first tower measured 10cm and the second tower measured 7cm, you can work out the difference by doing a subtraction number sentence:

10 - 7 = 3cm. So there is a 3cm difference between the two towers.

Friday

 

Today you are going to have a go at doubling and halving measures. I have included a powerpoint to help remind you about how to double and halve numbers. Look at this first before you have a go at the two worksheets below.

Science

 

This week, our Science learning is all about investigations....

 

1. How tall can you build a tower in 10 minutes, using only paper and sticky tape? Can you make yours taller than someone else in you family? What problems did you face?

 

2. Which material makes the best parachute for Rapunzel to use to escape her tower? What material do you predict will be the quickest to fall? Can you time how long each parachute takes to touch the ground from a high point? (Maybe you could use your own home-made tower!...see idea below in the 'Just for Fun' section.) Can you keep it a fair test?

 

Happy investigating, scientists in the making!

Geography / History

 

This week, to continue reinforcing our learning on the continents of the world, I have made a powerpoint of some Famous Towers around the world for you. What are towers there for? Which country has the tallest tower ever built? How long ago did people start building towers? All will be revealed here! I have learnt some amazing facts whilst making this for you so I hope you enjoy learning them too.

Art

 

This week, my Art idea has been inspired by the film 'Tangled', which is another version of the Rapunzel story. If you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it for a family movie night this week smiley

 

I have added the lantern scene from the movie for you to watch as it gave me inspiration for two Art projects this week. Please don't feel that you have to do both. I enjoy art in my spare time and was feeling very creative this week! I hope you enjoy whichever art project you choose.

Tangled - lantern scene

Art Idea 1

 

I will be doing this lantern idea with the children in school this week. If you have some clean, empty jars in your recycling then this is a lovely way to up-cycle them.

Firstly, choose whether you would like to make a glitter lantern or tissue paper lantern (or both!) and cover the jar with PVA glue to stick your chosen material. The glitter ones work best with the glue painted inside the jars (because then the glitter doesn't come off in your hands when you move the jar) and if you are using tissue paper, finish them with a coat of PVA on top of the paper to seal them.

The jars look beautiful with a tea-light inside them. I will be using battery powered LED tea-lights with the children in school so they are super safe to use as a night light as well.

Art Idea 2

 

I love art and I thought it would be nice to capture the lantern scene in 'Tangled' using paints. I have created this picture using black sugar paper, poster paints, a sponge, a brush and a lot of patience! The swirling night sky reminded me of Vincent Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' painting - maybe you could try searching for this painting online with an adult for an extra Computing idea?

I have made a time-lapse video to show you how I created my painting. If you would like to do your own I would love to see it! Please email them to school or send them to the Pennycross facebook page. Good luck!

Art Project

Just for fun

 

Here are some activities to keep you busy between the learning tasks. I will be using these in school during our COOL time.

I also had a go at making Rapunzel's tower from toilet rolls, card and egg boxes. I had to join the pieces with masking tape and then I painted them with poster paints. If you would like to have a go at making your own, why not role play the story of Rapunzel using your tower and the stick puppet cut-outs below? Have fun!

Week beginning 11.5.20

 

This week is all about 'Hansel and Gretel'.

 

We hope you have lots of fun doing all of the learning activities we have created for you. There are lots of different activities for you to try, so please remember to do what you can and don't worry if it looks like too much, just choose the activities you would like to do. We would love you to practise writing and maths every day so I have given you lots of sheets to help you do this.

Hope you have a lovely week!

From Miss Fielding smiley

Hansel and Gretel read by Miss Fielding

Still image for this video

Letter from Gretel

Monday - Listen to the story of Hansel and Gretel and read the letter from Gretel (see above). Gretel has a bit of a problem that she needs some help with. Can you think about what Gretel should do and help her to write a letter to her Stepmum to persuade her to let Hansel and Gretel come home?

 

Tuesday - On their travels, Hansel and Gretel were amazed to find a Gingerbread House! Can you describe the Gingerbread House using adjectives? Why not try and use a power of three in your writing to make it exciting!

 

Wednesday - Recap the story again. Can you tell the story to your grownup? In the story, Hansel and Gretel found a Gingerbread House. What if they found something different? Can you create your own house made of something peculiar and describe it? Here is Miss Fielding's 'Pizza House'!

Thursday - Can you plan your own version of Hansel and Gretel using the pictures on the 'Alternative Story Ending' sheet to help you. Remember to include your new version of the Gingerbread House in your story plan.

 

Friday - It is time to re-write the story! Remember to use your new story plan to help you structure your story. Make it creative and exciting, and remember to use all the things we have been learning in school when we write our stories. If you would like to make it into a book, there is a zig-zag book sheet below from when we wrote our Jack and the Beanstalk stories and a picture of instructions on how to fold it if you would like to make your very own book. If you prefer to write on plain or lined paper from home, that is fine too! 

I would love to see your finished books so please ask your grownups to send me a picture of your stories at sfielding@pennycross.plymouth.sch.uk

Maths

 

Here are lots of maths activities for you to look at this week. This week we will be focusing on 2D and 3D shapes. Can you remember what these are and tell your grownup some facts that you know about them?

I have included lots of different activities such as doing a shape hunt at home, using shape nets to make 3D shapes, shape colouring-in etc. You could even use mini marshmallows and cocktail sausage stick to make a 3D shape?

 

This week's quiz is about your learning of 2D and 3D shapes. After you finish all the maths learning for the week, please can you have a go at the quiz. Remember to put your first name and initial of your surname into the nickname box. Good luck! smiley

Science

 

We are continuing our learning of plants this week. Why not have a look at the PDF PowerPoint below to learn about what plants need to grow! You colour even try and make your own poster about it!

Geography

 

Before Easter, we learnt all about the world, its continents and the oceans. Can you tell your grownup at home about the worlds continents? Why not have a look at the song we learnt together. You could even make your own actions to the song. 

Here are some Geography activities you could try about the continents in the world.

Art and Design Technology

 

Here are some Art and Design Technology ideas that you could try at home:

  • Make your own gingerbread house. Design it, then use any art materials you have at home to decorate it. (see example below)
  • Bake your own yummy gingerbread! I have included the recipe below.
  • During enterprise week, we had a go at packaging and selling our own rocky road. Why not try and make packaging for your gingerbread and decorate it?

Music

 

Here is a song linked to our learning of 'Hansel and Gretel'. It is called 'Let's Build a Gingerbread House!' Why not try and learn the song (see two versions of the song below). You could even create your own dance to it!

 

PE

 

Keep up with your daily exercise, whether that is Joe Wicks in the front room, going for nature walks or practising your favourite sports. This week, I have enjoyed doing some Yoga.

Here is a picture of some of the Yoga I would like you to try called Alphabet Yoga. Why not have a go and try to spell out your name using Alphabet Yoga. 

For fun, could you take a picture of your child having a go at this and send it to Miss Fielding at sfielding@pennycross.plymouth.sch.uk

I am going to use the pictures to make a video to share on Facebook so the children can see their friends having fun at home, so it would be lovely if everyone could participate in this activity.

 

I hope you have a lovely week at home. I can't wait to see your pictures and story writing!

From Miss Fielding

Week beginning 4.5.2020

 

This week is all about the Little Mermaid.

 

Well done for persevering with the learning you are doing a fabulous job!  Please only do what you feel is manageable we don't want you to feel swamped! The ideas on here are suggestions just go at your own pace and do as little or as much as you want.   

 

Listen to the story of the Little Mermaid (see link below) and write about what happened in the beginning, middle and end of the story.  There is a sheet below if you need it. Describe some sea creatures using adjectives, the power of three and use the conjunctions and , because .  The sheets below will help you with ideas for adjectives.  There maybe some that you haven't heard of before!  Find out about different sea creatures like you found out about different bears a few weeks ago.  Use similar sub headings eg What does it look like?  What does it eat?  Where does it live?  What does it do?  and Interesting facts.  You may want to do some research on a particular sea creature that really interests you such as sharks or sea horses.  Amaze us with your facts!  But most of all have fun!  Enjoy your sea themed week!

Maths

 

Keep going with the White Rose website it is a very good resource.  This week we are learning about capacity so if  you haven't done so already look back to the White Rose sessions Week 1 and click under Session 4 and Session 5 these two sessions focus on capacity.  This week take the opportunity to have a free play exploring filling and emptying containers and use the language full, empty, nearly full, nearly empty, half full , half empty, almost full  and almost empty, more, less, least, most.  There are vocabulary cards below.Use different sized containers and guess how many yogurt pots it will take to fill a container?  Can you estimate?  Were you right? Can you make a table and record your findings? Write which containers you used and how many cups did you estimate and how many did it actually take to fill ? Can you put the containers in order of their capacity? Which held the least?  Which container held the most? How about making pancakes for breakfast and correctly measure out how much milk you will need?  Below are some sheets to complete if you would like . DO NOT feel you have to do them , just have a free play using the correct mathematical vocabulary.  Have fun!

When you have completed this weeks maths work, please have a go at the quiz below about Capacity. If you have not completed last weeks quiz please scroll down to find the link and the guidance about the weekly maths quizzes. 

Science

 

We are still focusing on plants at the minute.  Look at the film clips below and see if you can assemble the flower picture which is also below and label the parts of the flower such as roots, stem, leaves and flower.  There is also a Science activity which is all about making bubbles which you may want to do as part of making your fish aquarium which is mentioned further down in the Art section 

Geography

 

We already talked about this in school before Easter , but it will be worth going over it again to see if you can remember.  We learnt about the names of the different oceans and where they were in the world. On the links below there is a song, a powerpoint and a sheet to help you.  See if you can label the oceans on the map. Have a go! 

Art

 

This week we are making aquariums.  You need a cardboard box, shoe box or a cereal box. What creatures will you hang in your aquarium?  I've posted some sea creature ideas below.  What could you use to make seaweed, limpets, rocks etc?  You could even make some salt dough sea creatures and paint them. The recipe is below.  Have fun and let us know how you get on ! We would love to see any pictures! Let your imaginations run wild!

Cardboard aquariums

PSHE

 

Watch the short animation clip below entitled A Whale's Tail. It is about how we are polluting our seas with plastic.  Ask the children how they feel about the clip and ask the children for ideas of how we can stop this from happening.  Look around your house and identify which things are made of plastic?  I bet you will be surprised how much is made of plastic!

Music

 

The children have already listened to The Aquarium  (Number 7 piece from the Carninal of the Animals by Saint Caens) so they should be pretty familiar with it.  Listen to the piece of music and get them to draw a picture whilst listening to the clip below.  Don't watch the animated clip yet!  After you have drawn your picture watch the clip below and see if your picture was similar to what was in the clip.

Weekly Maths Challenge (wb 27.4.20)

 

This week we are starting a new weekly challenge for the Year 1s! I will be creating and uploading a weekly quiz that will be available to play on Friday after your child has completed the maths home learning activities for the week.

Please help your child to complete the quiz by reading out the questions. Each week the quiz will focus on the maths learning they have done in the week and it will be available to play until the end of the next week. 

To start the quiz all you need to do is click on the link below. It will take you to a new screen and will ask you to enter a nickname. Please enter your child's name and initial of their surname. In our computing learning, your child will know that it is not advised to use their real name online, however in this case it will be okay as only I will be able to see their names and results.

 

This weeks quiz is on learning their number bonds to 10.

 

Good Luck!

From Miss Fielding smiley

Week beginning 27.4.20

 

This week is all about Jack and the Beanstalk!

 

We hope you have fun doing all of the learning activities we have found for you. Please remember to just do what you can, don't worry if it looks like too much, just choose the activities you would like to do. We would love you to practise writing and maths every day so we have given you lots of sheets to help you do this. Have fun!

Jack and the Beanstalk read by Mrs Cook!

Writing

 

Monday:

Look at the story of Jack and the Beanstalk (see above). Can you think of what you would like to find at the top of your magic beanstalk? Use the 'If I had a magic bean' sheet to write and draw some of your amazing ideas.

 

Tuesday:

Recap the story again. Use the 'Describe the characters' sheet to help you write some descriptive sentences about some of the characters (you don't need to do all of the characters we have provided for you). Can you use adjectives and the power of 3 to help describe the characters really well? Don't forget to use you fred-fingers for spelling and finger spaces!

 

Wednesday:

And the Giant was never seen again.....or was he? Using the ideas from yesterday can you complete this 'Wanted Poster' for the Giant? It will be to have a picture and lots of descriptive adjectives to explain what the Giant is wearing and what he looks like (his features). Maybe you could offer a reward for the first person to find him!

 

Thursday:

Can you make your own sentences to tell the story using the pictures on the 'Write sentences about the pictures' sheet? Maybe you are up for the extra challenge of innovating the story of Jack and the Beanstalk to make up your own ending? You can use the 'Make your own ending' sheet to help you plan your ideas.

 

Friday:

It is time to re-write the story! You can retell the story in your own words or you could use the innovated version you planned yesterday to create your own story of Jack in the Beanstalk...maybe you could even replace the character of Jack with your own name? There is a zig-zag book sheet and a picture of instructions on how to fold it if you would like to make your very own book. If you prefer to write on plain or lined paper from home, that is fine too!

 

We have also added a letter from the Giant to Jack at the end as a bonus writing activity if you need it - we know we have some super keen writers with some fabulous ideas in Year One smiley

Word Practise:

 

Here is a grammar activity linked to Jack and the Beanstalk where children need to sort words into nouns (names of people, places or things) or verbs (actions).

 

It is also important to keep up with spelling practise. You have your spelling books for regular words and here are some irregular words (red words) to practise as well. These words don't spell as they sound so practise is the only way to learn them!

 

Mrs Broughton has also sent us a link to a spelling app that has been recommended by Ruth Miskin - who founded the Read Write Inc scheme. This may be a new, fun way to practise spellings at home.

Maths

 

Here are lots of maths activities for you to look at this week.

We have included a number formation booklet as we need to keep practising how to write numbers 10-20 neatly. You could have a go at this for 5 minutes each day.

The other activities include number bond practise and addition and subtraction (add and take-away) questions.

We have also made a 'measures and position' worksheet for you to do, to see if you remember some things you learnt at school.

Art and Design & Technology

 

Here are some ideas for Art and DT: 

 

  • Can you make your own beanstalk and add leaves to it that you have found during your Spring Walk?
  • Mrs Cook has put together a simple guide on how to draw some things from the Jack and the Beanstalk story... can you learn how to draw a goose, a castle and a harp?

 

  • Here is a yummy cooking idea for making hummus.
  • Last term we looked at puppets in DT. Some of the puppets we explored were called shadow puppets. Can you make your own shadow puppets from the story? You will need a bright light or torch to shine behind them when you have finished making them to create the shadows on a wall.

Music - singing idea!

PE

 

Keep up with your daily exercise, whether that is Joe Wicks in the front room, going for nature walks or practising your favourite sports.

 

We have found a video of a bean growing and thought that you might be able to make up your own little bean dance. Can you start really teeny tiny like a seed? Then slowly start to stretch you body up taller and taller towards the sky?

Bean Time-Lapse

Kidney bean time lapse with soil cross section. Showing how roots ant upper part of plant grows.

Just for Fun

 

Some more little activities here for you if you need them!

Week beginning 20.4.20

 

This week our focus is on Goldilocks and The Three Bears and weight. 

Below are some activities for you to try and do.

 

English activities

 

Read the story of Goldilocks and The Three Bears (see story below)

 

Have a go at doing the reading comprehension activity (see below)

 

Sequence the story of Goldilocks and write a sentence about each picture (see sheet below)

 

Find out about different types of bears (see bear facts and panda facts below) and write facts about different bears under the sub-headings  Where do they live? What do they eat?  What do they look like?  

Have a go at drawing the different bears if you can! 

 

Maths activities

 

The White Rose website is really good and focuses on one maths session each day (see link below in previous weeks session).  If you haven't done so already go under Year 1 home learning and click on Week 1 session which is mostly about weight and ties in with what learning has been going on at school this week.  If you have already done that weeks work then just work your way though the sessions week by week. 

 

Science

 

Before we finished for school we talked about what happens in Spring (see PDF below) and we were going to go on a Spring walk and look for different Spring plants.  If you are able to go out, see if you can spot any Spring flowers that are on the sheets below.

 

You many find the website White Rose Maths useful. Each week new age appropriate activities are uploaded.  Please use the link below. 

Thrive Activities

Try some of the activities suggested on the documents below. Have Fun!

The Magic Porridge Pot Week at Pennycross

The story we will be focusing on this week is 'The Magic Porridge Pot and the maths activities will focus on doubling and halving.  Below are some activities you can do at home and we will be doing these activities in school too. 

Writing Activities

  • Read the story of 'The Magic Porridge Pot'. (Find the story on www.twinkl.co.uk)
  • Look up different versions on You Tube. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gleDVbPFww)
  • You could act out the story or make your own puppet theatre.

Doubling and Halving Activities

Please use the powerpoints to support your child along with the worksheets.  Remember the game 'Hit the Button' will help you practise quick fire doubling and halving.  

Little Red Riding Hood week at Pennycross:

 

Hello everyone! I have been teaching this week at Pennycross around the theme of Little Red Riding Hood. I have put some links and worksheets below that we have been doing in class. 

 

Please remember that the next 2 weeks would have been the Easter Holidays and although we can't get out of the house properly to enjoy this lovely weather, it is important for the children to have a decent break from school work as well. Have fun in your gardens (if you are lucky to have them), do some cooking activities and share some stories but most importantly, enjoy a good rest :)

 

I miss you all!
