Good Morning Year 1,

How are you all doing today? I hope you were busy yesterday. Did you do your exercises? I joined in with Joe Wicks. It was hard work but lots of fun!

 

I just wanted to take this opportunity to direct you to a couple of websites offering reading materials that may be suitable for your child. It is so important that the children keep up with their reading in order to continue progressing. I hope these websites will help with that.

 

http://www.phonicsplaycomics.co.uk/comics.html

 

https://collins.co.uk/pages/big-cat-ebooks  - This seems to be a fantastic resource. Follow the instructions on the webpage to sign up for free. It allows you access to reading books for every colour band.

 

It will read the book to your child but if you press pause each time your child can read each page to you. There is then a little activity that you can do related to that book. Some of these books will already be familiar to the children.

Take care and have a great day,

 

Maths

Warm-up – Count forwards and backwards in ones. Start from different starting points e.g 34,35, 36… or 25, 24, 23…

Have a go at a daily 10 quiz – focus on addition -See additional websites.

 

Continue to  learn about weight and mass on the White Rose hub website

Week 1: Lesson 2 – Measure Mass

 

Watch the video and then attempt the questions.

 

Either print and complete, write the answers on a separate sheet or discuss the answers with an adult or older brother or sister.

Literacy

Before we finished school we had been reading Where the Wild Things are by Maurice Sendak. Could you please re-read the book with your children. Can they write a description of one of the wild things? Can they use adjectives to describe what they look like? What they act like?

 

Can they draw their own wild thing? What does it look like? Think about its features. Can you describe it to somebody?

 

Foundation

Go onto Purple Mash and login with your details (Most of these are stuck in your reading diary)

I have set two 2Dos for art based on the Great Fire of London. You can do one or both. One is to draw what the houses looked like, remember we spent time learning about this and the other is what Samuel Pepys would have seen out of his window.

Click on 2Dos and the work will be there. Remember to save it!

 

 

Remember, you can post your work on Class Dojo to show me what you have done.
