Good morning Anning Class! This week we will be exploring our local area (Brentry), learning the different parts of our body, looking at the story of the 'Magic Paintbrush' and learning about numbers to 20. Our literacy work this week in about the 'Magic Paintbrush'. In today's session you will be introduced to the story by a lady called Mrs Howley. Your challenge is to create a story map which you will then use to help you retell the story in tomorrow's session. So make sure you take your time and keep your story map safe!
Numeracy: counting and writing numbers to 20.
In Numeracy we will be looking at Autumn Week 11- Number: Place Value (Within 20) on White Rose Maths. Please follow the link on the timetable to watch a video about counting and writing numbers to 20 and complete the challenge set for your maths group (if you don't know these than please email me: email@example.com). If you would like to challenge yourself further then have a go at the extra challenge.
Please click on the link to the story (I will send out an email with the link to the video). Once you have watched the video discuss: what were the different ways Rosie dodged the obstacles? Then please have a go at completing the sequencing activity. Be creative! The example uses colouring pencils but you can use paints and other materials should you wish to.
This morning, have a go at practicing your handwriting. You can either work on your spellings or pick some letters (3-5) that you think you would benefit from practicing. Aim to do this for 15-20 minutes. Once you have done this, watch the next video on the 'Magic Paintbrush'. Your challenge today is to tell the story to someone. It could be a cuddly toy, sibling or one of your parents. Storytelling is a great skill to have and it helps us learn stories effectively!
Numeracy: represent numbers to 20
In today's lesson, you will be looking at different representations of numbers between 0-20. Please watch the video using the link from the timetable. If you are an Amethyst or a Diamond, your challenge includes representing a number using sticks and stones. Draw a stick for the ten and then stones for your ones. For example if you have the number 19, you would draw 1 stick and 9 stones. If you would like to challenge yourself further then please have a go at the extra challenge which involves cutting out and matching the numbers with the correct representations.
Please come to our Zoom Catch Up session (details will be emailed out). It would be great if your child could have a piece of Show and Tell for the session. This could be a new toy that they got for Christmas, something that they have made or a piece of home learning. We won't have time for all children to talk about their Show and Tell but it would be great if we had a few children who are brave enough to share with the class.
We will be launching our new topic: 'Our School' in our geography session this week. Please go through the PowerPoint and make your own Passport using the Passport Template attached (you will only need pages 1-2 for this). You will be looking at where your house is on a map of Brentry. If your house isn't on the map shown in the PowerPoint then see if you can find it using Google Earth.
Today you will be looking at the different moods in the The Magic Paintbrush. You will then use what you've learned to make your story even better!
Phonics Lesson with Mrs Tierney!
The link will be emailed to you all
Numeracy: counting tens and ones Part 1
In today's lesson, you will be looking at counting the tens and the ones. Watch the video on White Rose Maths (click the link on the timetable) and then have a go challenge for your group. If you would like to challenge yourself further then please have a go at the extra challenge.
This term, we will be starting our new science topic: Animals including Humans. We are going to start off by looking at the human body. In this lesson, you will learn/recap the different parts of the human body. Your challenge is to then complete the activities which require you to label the different parts of the body.
Start the morning by having a practice of your number bonds to 10. There are some resources for this under the 'Helpful Resources' section to give you a few ideas on how to learn these. Look to spend between 15-20 minutes practicing these. Once you have done this, move onto your Literacy learning where you will be writing sentences for your story. Don't forget your finger spaces, capital letters at the start of your sentences and full stops at the end of them.
Numeracy: tens and ones part 2
In todays numeracy lesson you will be revisiting tens and ones. As always, follow the video on White Rose Maths. If you finish both challenges and are keen to do more, then please use this time to practice your number bonds or go over anything that you haven't finished/ like to revisit again.
Please click on the link to the story (I will send out an email with the link to the video). Once you have watched the video, please complete the Elmer Design Activity using the resource below. I'm looking forward to seeing your amazing art work.
Well done for making it through to Friday! Give yourself a pat on the back. You have done some awesome work this week! To finish off for Literacy this week, please watch the video and complete the challenge at the end of the video which asks you to create a thought bubble. I hope you have enjoyed learning about The Magic Paintbrush and I'm sure that you have all become expert storytellers!
Numeracy: counting one more and one less.
In Numeracy, you will be looking at counting one more and one less. Remember that 'more' means the number will get bigger and 'less' will mean that the number gets smaller. Once you have watched the video, have a go at the challenge for your group. If you are wanting to do more work then great! Have a go at the extra challenge.
This term we are starting to look at very basic computer coding.
We use a free downloadable app called ScratchJr which is designed for 5-7 year olds. Their website tells you all about the app and has a troubleshooting guide should you need it:
When you have downloaded and opened the app, the Question Mark icon leads you to a short video that shows how it all works.
The children can explore the app creating pictures and stories.
It's well worth having a look at the sample projects to get some ideas.
Tip - remember to click on the green flag to start the sequence (unless instructed otherwise!)
The last week of work before the Summer Holidays start. You have all worked so hard and I am very proud of you. Our main topic this week is Time.. learning to tell the time and thinking of the past and the future ! We have a new Class Story called 'Wolf's New Friends' too.
To start today I have set as a 2Do the first chapter of Wolf's New Friends to read on Purple Mash and then the quizzes to do. I have also set another Talking Story to listen to as I know you have enjoyed listening to these. This one is about a trip to The Market. I hope you enjoy taking part in the story.
We are back on track with the White Rose Maths Learning this week and will be following Week 12 and the videos and lessons about Time. Watch the video lesson for Year 1 Summer Term Week 12 Lesson 1 by following the link on the class timetable. Then have a go at the worksheets below. As always all copies of work sheets for this weeks learning are outside the School Office. Then have a go at the Telling the Time ( o'clock times) quiz on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do). There are still games to do with number and calculation on Purple Mash, ICT Games and Topmarks Websites so keep practising number bonds, addition and subtraction etc. There is also a game called Hickory Dickory Clock on ICT Games to play but it does involve half past and quarter to and quarter past times too.
If your child is confident with o'clock and half past times ( Tomorrows work) and they are ready to move onto quarter past and quarter to then there are lots of worksheets and power points on Twinkl and BBC Bitesize.
This morning find out what happens next in the story Wolf's New Friends and have a go at the 2Dos. In Numeracy we are moving onto telling the time to half past. Watch the video lesson 2 on White Rose and then try the worksheets below.
Now I would like you to travel back in time and think about the work we first did in Anning Class all about Dinosaurs ! Imagine you went in a Time Machine and travelled back in time. You could watch one of Andy's Dinosaur Adventures on CBEEBIES https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b03wh7vl/andys-dinosaur-adventures
to remind you what it would have been like.
Then can you write some super sentences about what it would have been like at this time. Don't forget all you have learned in Year 1 ...finger spaces, use your sounds and tricky words to help with Spelling and don't forget a capital letter at the beginning of every sentence and a full stop at the end. Can you put some adjectives in your sentences too to make them more exciting ? You can do this on a piece of paper or on the sheet below or on Purple Mash set as a 2Do.
Remember to start your day with some hand writing. Keep practising your letter formation so that you are ready to start joining your letters in Year 2. Our new spellings all have the wh and ph sound in them: dolphin,alphabet,phonics,elephant,phone,when,where,which,wheel and while. Once you have practised them try the dictation below and then the Spelling Quiz set as a 2Do on Purple Mash ( Year 1 Summer 1 Week 3).
It would be great to catch up on our Class Story Wolf's New Friends ( Set as a 2Do) as well.
In Numeracy today we are learning to write the time. Watch the video on the White Rose website and then try the worksheet below. There is also a game to play about position on Purple Mash ( Set as a 2Do).
This morning read Chapter 4 of Wolf's New Friends and do the 2Dos. Then watch the White Rose video lesson for Lesson 4 Comparing Time and complete the work sheet below.
It's the last day of Home Learning ! Very well done for reaching this point pupils and Parents ! Let's find out what happens at the end of our Class story. Try and do some of your own reading today and keep it up throughout the holidays ! A big thank you to Mrs Tierney who has brought her fantastic Phonic Lessons into your home by her weekly video lessons as well as Home Schooling her own two lovely boys. This week they are having a disco !Keep practising your sounds during the holidays too! Watch her last lesson today and practise your phonic sounds.
Well Done Anning Class ! You have worked so hard and have now finished Year 1 ! By now you and your Parents will be looking forward to a fantastic Summer Holiday and a rest. You have worked so hard that I know you will be ready for Year 2 in September and your new Teachers are really looking forward to having you in Brunel Class. Good Luck and stay in touch !
Have fun and keep smiling,
See you in September,
Good Morning Anning Class ! This week we are off to The Seaside and our work will be to do with this topic ! The work on the timetable is different to the work being done in School this week so if you are in School you can just pick and choose what parts of the timetable you would like to follow on your days at home. You may feel quite tired after a full day in School so it is up to you and your Mummies and Daddies how much you do !
Today I would like you to look at another Talking Story. This one is about a girl called Sally who visits the Seaside. After listening to the story can you you use your senses to write some super sentences about the seaside. You can do this on Purple Mash (set as a 2Do) or on the worksheet below. Remember all worksheets are printed off for you and copies left in the Year 1 tray by the Office.
This morning can you read the third chapter of our Class story about Anna's Sports Day and then do the quizzes set as 2Dos. In Numeracy we are learning how to describe position so watch the video ( link on the timetable) and then answer the questions on the worksheet below.
Don't forget to practice your handwriting this morning by choosing one of the Handwriting Houses to practice. For Spellings this week we are going to think about Compound Words. These are words made of two other words joined together to make a new word. Practice the words on the LSCWC sheet and by doing the Dictation below and then have a go at the quiz set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.
To find out more about Compound Words follow the link on the timetable to a BBC Bitesize page and watch the videos and do the activities. Can you write a list of compound words ? You can do this on Purple Mash ( Set as a 2Do) or on a piece of paper.
In Numeracy we are again learning about Describing Position so watch the lesson video by following the link on the timetable and then try the worksheet below.
Time to read the next chapter of Anna's Sports Day and try the activities set as 2Dos on Purple Mash. In Numeracy there is a video link on the timetable. Watch the video lesson with some Position and Direction Problem Solving Questions on and then try some of the worksheets below.
Let's find out what happens in the final chapter of Anna's Sports Day. Just enjoy the ending of the book ( no 2Dos set ). Watch Mrs Tierney's Phonics lesson this week and have a go at the activities. Try and do some reading today as well. You could also try the Seaside word search below.
Well done Anning Class ! Whether you were at home or School I hope you had lots of fun ! Another week gone and only one more week of School until the Summer Holidays !
Have a relaxing Weekend everyone !
Good Morning Anning Class ! Hope everyone's had a great weekend ! We are going to start off the new week by listening to a Talking Story. It's on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do) and is called 'Going to the Park' You can make some choices in the story. You will probably realise that the story has lots of rhyming words in it. Can you spot any ? Can you think of some rhyming words ? How many words can you think that rhyme with the word 'hat'. Make a list of them and either write them on a piece of paper or on Purple Mash: 2Publish: Page Border. On Purple Mash:2Publish:Page Border you can design your own page border for your writing. You could draw your own border if you do the work on a piece of paper. Can you make some more lists of rhyming words ?
In Numeracy this week we have already covered some of the work set on the White Rose website so for this week we are going to revise the topic of shape and symmetry.
You can watch the BBC Bitesize video ( link on timetable) to revise 2D shapes and watch Numberblocks Flatland ( link on timetable). Try some of the worksheets below and play some shape games ( 2D Shape Sorting and Shape Patterns) from the Top Marks website ( link on timetable).
Remember that you can pick up copies of all the worksheets from this week's timetable from just outside the School Office.
We are going to start reading a new Purple Mash story today called 'Anna's Sports Day'. Read the first chapter and answer the questions set as a 2Do. In Numeracy I am going to ask if you can go on a 2D shape Hunt. You could do this in your home or in the garden or even when out for a walk or at the park. How will you record the shapes you find ? There are some sheets below which may help you or you could take some photos. I wonder which shape you will find the most of?
Keep practicing that handwriting by choosing a house from the handwriting sheet below. Remember to make all your letters the same size and sitting on the line. Think about which letters have descenders ( monkey tails).
In Numeracy we are going to remind ourselves what the word 'symmetry' means. Watch the BBC Teach video ( link on timetable) to find out more about symmetry. Then can you draw/paint a symmetrical picture ? You could do this on a piece of paper with paint or Purple Mash 2Paint has an option to draw symmetrical pictures. You will need to click on the butterfly at the top of the page to make this happen ( set as a 2Do). There are some symmetry games on the Top Marks website. Try Symmetry Matching and Symmetry Sorting ( link on timetable).
Later, another targets in Year 1 is to learn how to write number words. There are some activity sheets below to help you practice these words. You can just try to learn the spellings of the numbers 1 to 10 but if you want a challenge try learning the words up to 20.
Time to find out what happens in Chapter 2 of our class story 'Anna's Sports Day'. Complete the 2Dos as well. In Numeracy today we are going to revise the names of some 3D shapes. Watch the power point below about 3D shapes and then watch the video on the BBC Bitesize page ( link on timetable). There is also a worksheet about 3D shapes to do. Find it below the power point.
It's Friday already and time to beam Mrs Tierney in ! Today's phonics lesson is all about the sound or, au and aw. Watch Mrs Tierney's lesson below and try the activities. You can play Phonics Play games too. Make sure you do some reading today as well.
Remember the pictogram you started on Monday about the recycling you do each day? We are going to answer some questions about the results today in Numeracy. One of Mondays worksheets about the pictogram has a list of questions to answer. Can you answer them about the pictogram you made? You could also try the maths challenge on White Rose ( Year 1 Week 10 Lesson 5) if you like.
Today in Art we are looking at a new artist called Jean Metzinger. Watch the power point below about him. Metzinger used little squares in his paintings ( a bit like a mosaic - look that word up if you don't know what it means). There is a great effect on Purple Mash 2Paint a Picture called Poly Mosaic which paints in little squares like Metzinger ( set as a 2Do) so you could use this to paint a Metzinger style painting or below there is a worksheet you could use which has little 6 sided shapes on it to colour to make a Metzinger style picture. ( can you remember what a 6 sided flat shape is called ?). Remember Metzinger liked to use really bright colours.
Good Morning ! Hope you've had a great weekend and are ready for some more learning this week. We are going to start off by doing some research and writing. This time I would like you to find out all about bears. Not the Three Bears but bears you would find in the wild. You may have a book about bears at home or you may like to do some research on the internet with Mum and Dad. There is a Twinkl power point below too that you could look at that has lots of information about different types of bears. Choose one type of bear to write 5 or more super sentences about. Make sure each sentence starts with a capital letter and ends with a full stop. There is a sheet below as well that you could print off and write your super sentences on or you could just get a piece of lined paper to write on or you can write your sentences on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do). An illustration would be great as well. Even better if you can use some adjectives in your writing too !
In Technology today can you make a mask or puppet of a bear. You could use recycled materials like a paper plate or a cardboard tube and decorate it with paint, crayons, coloured paper or wool. There is a sheet below with some ideas to have a look at. If you have enough resources you could make three bears of different sizes ! I have put some paper plates,wool and googly eyes by the School Office for you if you would like to come and take some resources.
If you can't make your own there are some sheets below you can print off to make either bear masks or Goldilocks and the Three Bears stick puppets. Perhaps you could retell the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and put on a performance for your family. You will need to make some tickets for your show and a poster to advertise it! When and where will the show be ? What time will it start ? How much will it cost?
This morning it's time to read the next chapter of our class story ' Ned and the Three Bears'. Try the set 2Do activities on Purple Mash afterwards. For Numeracy today we are learning to partition 2 digit numbers. Watch Tuesday's video lesson and then practice partitioning by doing the worksheets below.
We are carrying on with our Everyday Materials topic in Science and doing some scientific investigations today.We are going to be testing materials to find out what properties they have. Have a look at the Science Power Point below. Can you find out what the words opaque,transparent, absorbent ,waterproof and bendy mean ? Then can you try some of the investigations on the work sheets below on everyday materials around the house. Are they transparent or opaque , absorbent or non absorbent, waterproof or not waterproof, bendy or not bendy ?
Can you practice some of your handwriting this morning ? You could carry on practicing your capital letter formation or you could practice one of our handwriting houses. Afterwards can you learn these spellings saw,draw,lawn,crawl,yawn,author,August,dinosaur,astronaut,sauce. They all have the aw/au sound in them. You can practice by doing the LSWCC sheet and the dictation below before trying the quiz on Purple Mash set as a 2Do.
This morning I would like you to read Chapter 4 of 'Ned and The Three Bears' and complete the 2Dos on Purple Mash. During Numeracy we are going to be completing the second part of the lesson about Comparing Numbers. Watch Lesson 4 of Week 9 on the White Rose website and then try the worksheets below.
One of our targets for the end of Year 1 is to learn the order and spelling of the Days of the Week. Have a look at the BBC website activities at the link below:
Then try some of the activity work sheets below. There is a cut,order and stick activity, a spelling activity , a days of the week quiz and a word search to try.
Is it Friday already ? You must have been working hard ! Time to find out what happens in the final chapter of our Class story,'Ned and The Three Bears' . Just enjoy the story ! Can you watch Mrs Tierney's fabulous Phonics lesson and have a go at the activities. You should also practice some reading today by choosing a book from Oxford Owls or by reading a book from home. In Numeracy there will be a problem to solve on Day 5 of Week 9's Lessons or you could play a maths game instead. For Art today we are continuing to look at the artist Vincent Van Gogh's work. Today we are going to try and recreate one of his famous paintings called 'Starry Night'. Have a look at the power point below. There are some instructions in the power point to follow to help you make the background of the painting. Below is also a sheet with some black silhouette buildings on that you could cut out and stick on to your background to complete your 'Starry Night' picture. You could instead try a painting using Purple Mash 2PaintaPicture : Swirly set as a 2Do.
If you don't want to do art I have attached a WANTED poster sheet as well so that you could make a poster to try and find Goldilocks after she left the Three Bears house in such a mess ! Sorry I forgot to write this activity on the timetable ! This can also be done on Purple Mash set as a 2Do.
This morning after waking yourself up with a bit of exercise we are going to remind ourselves of the traditional tale called Goldilocks and the three Bears. You may have the story at home to read or you can watch it on You tube by following the link :
or you could read it yourself by looking at the e- book from Twinkl. There is a link to the book on the timetable. Then can you pretend you are Goldilocks and write a letter to the Three Bears to say you are sorry for what you did. She was rather naughty wasn't she ?! You could use the sheet below or a piece of paper. If you prefer you could write it on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do)
Today after chilling with some yoga we are going to start to read a new class story on Purple Mash called 'Ned and the Three Bears'. I think you will be able to guess which traditional tale this story is based on ! After reading the story answer the questions set as a 2Do.
In Numeracy we are going to continue recognising the value of coins. Watch the power point below and try the worksheet. Remember you can play Maths games on Purple Mash and Top Marks too.
Today we are going to start by practicing the formation of capital letters. Use the sheet below to copy and practice starting each letter in the correct place.
If you've got some extra energy try some Joe Wicks before reading the next chapter of Ned and the Three Bears and trying the quizzes on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do).
If you have some coins in your piggy bank at home perhaps you could add them up to see how much you have to practise working with money. Or you could ask Mum or Dad if they have any spare coins you could add up. Remember to give them back ! Then have a go at the worksheet and find how much money the ice creams are.
This morning practice your phonic sounds on Phonics Play after some yoga and then settle down to practice your reading either by reading one of your own books or by reading a book from the Oxford Owls website. In Numeracy today you could try the maths problem set on White Rose Year 1 Week 8 Friday lesson or play a maths game.
In Art this week we are looking at a different famous artist called Vincent Van Gogh. Watch the power point below which also includes a link to a short clip about Van Gogh. Then try to recreate your own Van Gogh style picture. Use bright colours like Van Gogh did in his later paintings and use big and bold brush strokes if you are lucky enough to have your own paints. There is a template below too that you could use to help you or you could just colour it in with pencils or felt tips. If you prefer you could use the Purple Mash 2Paint a Picture program ( set as a 2Do).
Well done you have worked so hard and I am sure you are ready for the weekend. I hope you have a lovely time and I will look forward to seeing you again next week !
Keep smiling and having fun !
Additional Notes and Resources for Week Beginning 8th June
Good Morning ! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Wake yourself up with a bit of a move around... a bit of running on the spot or some dancing ! This morning I would like you to do some of your own research about wolves. Not like the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood but real wolves in the wild! Once you have found some interesting facts about wolves I would like you to write 5 fantastic sentences about wolves. Make sure each sentence starts with a capital letter and ends with a full stop. You can do your writing on Purple Mash (set as a 2Do) or on a piece of paper or on the sheet below. There is a link on the timetable if you want to watch a CBEEBIES program about Ethiopian wolves
Last week you made some fantastic musical instruments out of recycled materials. This week can you rummage through the recycling box again and see what else you can make. There are some links to ideas using socks,cardboard tubes and pebbles on the timetable. There is also a link to a recycling song to watch and more ideas at CBEEBIES Junk Rescue.
After some Cosmic Yoga it is time to find out what Little Red has been up to in our class story, 'Little Red'. Read Chapter 3 and complete the 2Dos set. In Numeracy today we are going to practise counting in 5's. Watch the video lesson and then try these worksheets:
This morning practice your handwriting. It would be good to practice the formation of capital letters now that you are using them to start every sentence with! Here is a sheet with their formation on.
After some Joe Wicks or another go on your obstacle course read Chapter 4 of Little Red and complete the 2Dos on Purple Mash. In Numeracy we are learning about adding in equal groups. Watch the video on the White Rose Website and then do the work on the sheets below:
It's Friday already. Time for some more Cosmic Yoga followed by reading the end of our class story 'Little Red'. No 2 Dos set. Just enjoy the ending! Practice your phonic sounds by playing some games on Phonics Play and if you've got time read a book from Oxford Owls.In Numeracy a challenge has been set on White Rose or play a maths game instead. Later perhaps try and do some art. We are continuing looking at the work of Claude Monet this week but looking at cityscapes rather than landscapes.Watch the Twinkl power point below about Monet's use of colour depending on the time of day or season. See if you can make a piece of art like Monet's cityscapes either on paper or on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do). Think about the colours you use. There is a silhouette of the Houses of Parliament on the sheet below which you may like to add to your background.
Well done Everybody ! You have got to the end of the week again. Time for a well deserved rest after all that hard work ! See you next week !
Additional Notes and Resources for the Week Beginning 1st June.
Mrs Tierney's Phonic Lesson.
Here is Mrs Tierney's Phonics lesson for the week. This time it's a game called Pick a Puppy. Please watch the video this week sometime as it will remind you all of the different ways we can spell the 'ee' sound.
Hope you've all had a fantastic half term holiday and are ready for some more learning ! Try and do a bit of exercise first thing in the morning to get yourself moving ! It doesn't have to be Joe Wicks! It could be putting some music on and having a dance or running round the garden four times !
This morning I would love to read about your news from the Half Term Holiday. I know you probably had to stay at home but what was the best part of the week for you? It might have been as simple as a favourite meal or a game you played or a walk you had. Remember to use your sounds to spell words and think about the spelling of 'tricky' words carefully when you need to write them. If you can, put a capital letter at the beginning of each sentence and when you have finished writing a sentence put a full stop. Say your sentence out loud when writing so you don't forget any of the words and you can check it makes sense. How about thinking of some amazing adjectives to make your writing even better and more interesting for the person reading your work ? It would be great if you could write your news on a piece of paper so you can practise your handwriting too but you could do it on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do) or you can send your news in the form of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to illustrate your work too please do !
In Numeracy this week we are starting a new Measures Topic. This time we will be learning about Mass ( weight) and Volume ( capacity). Remember you can click on the link on the weekly timetable to watch the lesson videos on the White Rose website. The worksheets and answers will be in the additional notes for that day. Here are today's worksheet and answers :
In Numeracy this week too I want you to keep remembering your number facts so keep playing the games on Purple Mash like 2Race ( there are lots of different versions to practise different skills at different levels), Bond Bubbles and Sequence a Snake. The more you practise the quicker you will be. There are also some great games on the ictgames website ( link on timetable) such as Funky Mummy,Duck shoot and Smoothie Maker. Again there are different levels and skills to practise.
Later have some fun with some Music ! Last term you had a go at making your own piece of music on Purple Mash 2Create and you can try this again today ( set as a 2Do) but you may like to make your own musical instrument out of rubbish ! It's great to recycle and our new science topic is all about Everyday Materials. What materials can you find to make an instrument out of ? What noises can you make ? Take a photo if you can or even a video and either email it to me or upload it into your folder on Purple Mash. I have put links to two videos on the timetable which will give you some ideas so watch those first.
Limber up with some yoga this morning then settle down to read the first chapter of our new class story 'Little Red' ( set as a 2Do). It's based on another traditional tale. Can you guess which one ? Answer the questions carefully. Remember to read the story first. If you can read it all to yourself or share the reading with an adult or if it is too tricky ask an adult to read the story to you but listen really carefully and try and spot some words that you do know or could sound out.
In Numeracy , we are comparing masses today. Here are the worksheets:
This morning practise your handwriting. Choose a house to practise and remember to try and do your writing on lined paper so that you can put the descenders ( monkey tails) under the lines. Think about where each letter should start and make sure each letter is about the same size. Here are the handwriting houses again to remind you.
Choose an activity to wake you up and get yourself moving. Joe Wicks is there if you are feeling super fit ! Read the second chapter of our class story 'Little Red' and try the 2Dos on Purple Mash. Today in Numeracy we are learning to measure capacity. Watch the video on the White Rose website and try the worksheet below:
Chill out with some yoga this morning ! Then practise your Phonic sounds by playing games on Phonics Play and watch Mrs Tierney's video at the top of this page. Practise all you have learned by choosing a book from OxfordOwls to read. Remember we have a class account : Username : Anning Password :brentry
Then try a maths challenge set on the White Rose website Year 1 Home Learning Week 6 Friday Lesson 5 or play one of Gareth Metcalfe's games ( link on timetable) or a board game that involves counting or strategy !
Today we start our new Art topic Landscapes and Cityscapes and we are starting with Landscapes and a French painter called Claude Monet. Look at the Power Point to find out more about Monet and how he used to paint . Then have a go at creating your own landscape like Monets. You can do this using paint if you have some and your fingertips to make marks. There is a sheet below that you could use to paint on or colour in to make a landscape picture. Or you could try painting on Purple Mash 2Paint a Picture (set as a 2Do) and use the impressionism style of painting to create a Monet inspired piece of art. Good luck !
It's the end of the week. Well done for working so hard again. I hope you've had fun and enjoy your weekend ! See you next week !
Additional Notes and Resources for the Week Beginning 18th May
Mrs Tierney's Phonics Lesson this week.
Mrs Tierney has made another fantastic video of a phonics lesson. This week starring her guinea pigs ! Please at some point during the week have a go at this lesson as it reminds us of all the different ways we can make the 'ai' sound.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend and are ready for a new week of learning ! Don't worry it'll soon be Half Term ! Have we got enough energy to try Joe Wicks this morning ? If not just put on your favourite tune and have a ten minute dance ! This morning we are reading the next chapter of our class story, 'Anna and the Third Leaf'.Read the next chapter and try the 2Dos If you would like to try the Grammar activities to go with this chapter I have put them below. We start a new revision topic in Numeracy today about Measures ; Length and Weight. Watch the video lesson first ( link on timetable) and then do the worksheet below:
There are also a couple of games on the Topmarks website ( follow link on timetable) called 'Happy Camel' and 'Measuring in Centimetres' you could try. Also, this week keep practising your number bond and addition and subtraction skills by playing games on Purple Mash.
In Science today we are going to do some research on the life cycle of a plant. First take a look at the Twinkl Power point below and the Time Lapse Video of a bean growing.
Then have a look at the BBC Bitesize page ( KS1 Science Plants) and watch the two videos and try the quiz at the end.
Finally,if you are lucky enough to have a printer try the worksheet below or you could draw some pictures of the different stages of the life cycle of a plant and label them.
After a bit of relaxing yoga how about an end of term challenge ! Can you write a different version of the Jack and the Beanstalk Story by changing some of the characters and/or objects in the story. We call this an innovation. You could change Jack into a girl character and the cow into a pig ! Let your imagination run wild ! I have written my own innovation of the story and you'll find it below. I have also copied it out with some of the characters and objects missing so you could just fill in the missing words. May be you could ask your Mum or Dad to help you write your ideas down either on a piece of paper or on the computer. I would love to read your new stories so you could upload them onto Purple Mash or email them to me ! They can be as silly as you like!
After all that hard work why not go outside and do an activity ? Another challenge. You have been working so hard learning about Plants this term that I am going to make you the King or Queen of Plants ! For this you will of course need a crown ! Can you make a crown out of leaves,flowers,twigs,seeds and grasses ? Have a look at the video from the Woodland Trust for an idea of how to make one:
Here are some pictures to give you more ideas ! Take a photo when you've finished and send it to me please !
Keep practising that handwriting ! Choose a different Handwriting House to practise on lined paper and take real care to start each letter in the correct place and write in the correct direction.
Let's find out what is happening in the next part of Anna and the Third Leaf Story today. Have a go at the 2Dos set on Purple Mash too. If you want extra Grammar activities to go with Chapter 4 I have put the sheets below. In Numeracy, we are moving on to the topic of weight and mass today. Watch the video lesson and here is the worksheet to go with it.
Our final Science lesson about Plants today and it's all about learning what plants need to enable them to grow healthily. Watch the Twinkl Power Point below, then look at the BBC Bitesize page to find out more about what plants need.
Watch the two videos and try the quiz at the end. If you are able to print off the worksheet below you can fill it in or you could make a poster telling everybody what you have found out about what plants need to keep healthy. I have made one for you to look at.
It's Friday again ! As it's the end of term let's find out what happens at the end of our Class story. Just enjoy the ending. There are no 2Dos ! But I would like you to practise some phonics by playing some games on Phonics Play and to practise your reading by choosing a book in Oxford Owls to read today. It's Maths Challenge Friday today or you could play a Maths game. Finally, can you try an art activity to finish the week ? This week we are learning about an artist called Jackson Pollock. Watch the Twinkl power point below to find out a bit more about him and his style of painting.
Well done everyone ! It's the end of term and time for a very well deserved break from Home Learning. You have all worked really hard at home this term. Mums and Dads you have all been brilliant. Thank you ! Enjoy the weeks break, have fun and stay safe !
Additional Notes for the Week Beginning 11th May
Good Morning , Good Morning ! Hope you've had a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend ! Time to get moving again and try some yoga moves ! Today we are going to start reading the first chapter of a new class story. It is called 'Anna and the Third Leaf'. I hope you enjoy it. I wonder if you can work out why I chose that particular story ? Have a go at the activities set as 2Dos. If you are super keen this morning you could try the grammar activities on the PDF below ( Activity 3 would be a good one to try).
In PSHE today I would like you to think about someone who is always working really hard and looking after you ...that's right your Mum ! Can you tell me why your Mum is the best and so special . It would be lovely to see a picture of her too ! You can either do this on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do) or on a piece of paper.
Time to get moving and see if Joe Wicks is back exercising !
After all that exercise it must be time for some food ! But not for you...! For a Witch ! Can you write a menu that a Witch would enjoy? As disgusting as you like ! What would she eat for breakfast,lunch and tea ? You can do this on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do) or on a piece of paper. Remember to decorate your menu.
Here are the worksheets for today's White Rose numeracy lesson:
If you would like to do some more activities linked to gardens there are lots of super ideas on the BBC Gardening with Children page: http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/gardening_with_children/
I really liked the ideas of Keeping a pet dandelion or Making a daisy chain or Trying to grow plants from food. Have a look !
This morning practise your handwriting. Choose a house to practise on lined paper if you can. Today really concentrate on making all your letters the same size and sitting on the line...not floating up in the air !
Now we are going to practise some more spellings. You have a choice today but I have set them both as 2Dos but you only need to choose one set. You can either practise the tricky words: and,the,a,do,you,to,with,of,what,put,her and on. Or you can learn the spelling of some words that end in -er. These are: better,under,Summer,Winter,sister,letter,anger,writer,faster and swimmer.
Below are the dictation and Look,Cover ,Write sheets to go with each set of spellings for further practise.
After a bit more Joe Wicks or exercise of your choice let's find out what happens next in our class story, 'Anna and the Third Leaf'. Try the work set as 2Dos. I have posted the Grammar sheets that go with the second chapter below if anyone would like some extra activities ! In Numeracy, we are comparing number sentences. Here are the worksheets to go with the lesson.
It's Friday again ! Chill with a bit of Cosmic Yoga and then practise your phonic sounds by playing some Phonics Play games and Mrs Tierney has a brand new video to watch and take part in. Please watch it below as it has some great practise about the different ways to spell the 'igh' sound . Then do some reading ...either one of your own books or one from Oxford Owls. Today it is Maths Challenge day and/or you could play a maths game ! In Art this week we are going to be looking at the work of an artist called Paul Klee and learn how to mix white with another colour to make a tint.Watch the powerpoint below. Can you produce a piece of Paul Klee art? You could mix paints if you have some and paint a picture using different tints of colour, or colour the work sheet below or use the idea on the worksheet to make your own piece of art. You can use Purple Mash 2Paint if you prefer ( set as a 2Do).
Fantastic ! Give yourself a pat on the back ! You've worked really hard again. I am so proud of you ! Enjoy a lovely relaxing weekend ! See you back here on Monday !
Additional Notes for the Week Beginning 4th May
Ready for another week ?! Warm up with some Cosmic Yoga or other exercise of your choice. In Literacy today we are going to be reading the final chapter of our class book, 'Ned and the Jungle Animals'. I wonder what happens at the end ? Have a go at the activities set as 2Dos once you've read the end.
In Numeracy this week Mums and Dads, we have a slight problem which will be resolved soon ! White Rose have decided to start charging for the worksheets from this week. As a School we have signed up to this but we need Mrs Mel to be in School to pay the invoice and she won't be in until later in the week ! We can still access the short video lessons and there is a link to the BBC Bitesize daily maths lessons which are working in conjunction with White Rose and are covering the same numeracy topics each day. There are more videos and worksheets in the BBC Bitesize website if you follow the link from White Rose. You can try these if you wish. I would watch the White Rose daily lesson videos though and I have put a Purple Mash Maths Game as a 2Do each day this week as well which you may prefer to do instead of looking through all the BBC Bitesize work. Normal service will resume as soon as possible !
In PSHE this week I would love to know what you would like to be when you are older. An artist, football player, doctor, vet, teacher or like Mrs Collins a ballet dancer perhaps ! Write a sentence or two and a picture would be lovely either on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do) or on a piece of paper.
Get active this morning with a Joe Wicks work out !
If we were in school we would be learning the story of 'Jack and The Beanstalk' so this week I would like you to read the story and then try and write the story yourself. There is a powerpoint from Twinkl below you can read or you may have a story book of your own about Jack and The Beanstalk that you might like to read. There are lots of different versions of Jack and The Beanstalk so you might be able to research lots of stories about Jack. Today I would like you to write the first half of the story...perhaps up to the part where Jack starts to climb the beanstalk. You may find you can write the whole of the beginning of the story or you may only manage to write two or three sentences. You decide how much you think you can write. Don't forget to use your sounds and tricky words. If you can put full stops at the end of sentences and begin new sentences with capital letters even better. You can do this on Purple Mash set as a 2Do or if you prefer you can write your story on paper with a pencil. If you want to do an illustration you can.
In Numeracy, we are learning about fact families and the link between addition and subtraction. There is a game set as a 2Do on Purple Mash called 2Race. See if you can win by using your number bonds.
For Computing and Technology today I would like you to design either a vehicle or a house. You can do this by using a computer program on Purple Mash ( set as a 2Do) or by designing and drawing on paper or by making a model of your design out of Lego or other construction toys you have at home !
Start your day with some handwriting practise ! Find some lined paper if you can and practise another handwriting house. Write each letter at least 10 times and make sure all the letters are the same size..not too big and not too small !
In Numeracy we are learning to add together and find a part ( addition questions with a missing part eg 5 + __ = 10 ). You could ask your parents to give you some of these missing number questions on a piece of paper to try and work out. I have set a game on Purple Mash called Sequence Snake about sequencing numbers. When I tried it my snake was very naughty and wouldn't go where I wanted it to! I bet you'll be better at the game than I was !
Fingers crossed it's another sunny day as we are out and about in Science again this week. This time we are looking at trees ! Watch the Twinkl power point below. Then see if you can go outside and identify the names of some trees by using the Tree identification sheet. How will you record your findings Scientists? You could make a tally chart like you did with the wild flowers last week. May be you could take some photos of the trees you identified or perhaps you could take one leaf off each tree and stick to a piece of paper and label it with the name of the tree it came from. Another activity you could do is to try and do some leaf and bark rubbings with paper and wax crayons.
Get moving this morning with Joe Wicks ! Then in Literacy can you write the second half of the Jack and the Beanstalk story you started on Tuesday. Again you can try to write the whole of the rest of the story or just write three or four sentences about the second part . Will the story have a happy ending ?
Today in Numeracy we are revising how to add on when adding two numbers and I have set another game as a 2Do on Purple Mash. It is another 2Race game but this time practising adding and finding missing numbers.
Last week in Geography we revised the 4 countries of the United Kingdom. Can you remember their names ? Today we are off to one of those countries and Mr Clarke's favourite ..that's right you've guessed it Wales ! Watch the Go Jetters story ( link on timetable) about their visit to Caernarfon Castle in Wales. Then have a go at the Purple Mash 2 Do set. Choose a picture of a castle ( click on the small green circle in the right top corner of the paper to choose and download a picture of a castle) and write a caption about it. If you want to research any other castles in the UK then do and you could draw a picture and write a caption on a piece of paper if you prefer instead of using Purple Mash.
Today is a Bank Holiday so no pressure to do the set work. If you are wanting some activities though practise your phonic sounds by playing some games on Phonics Play and by reading a story from Oxford Owls. There is a maths challenge on BBC Bitesize today or you could play a maths type of game such as Uno, Connect 4, snakes and ladders, darts or follow the link on the timetable to play one of Gareth Metcalfe's games ( scroll down his page to find KS 1 games).
A challenge for the weekend in Art this week! Can you find out about another famous artist and his work. This one is called Picasso and his work was called abstract because it didn't look exactly like the object he was drawing or painting. Have a look at the Twinkl power point to find out more. Then try and make a Picasso style picture by using things from around your house !
Mrs V-G's daughter, Rhiana , has made Anning Class a special video to show how you could make a Picasso style collage out of pieces of cardboard. Watch her video and see a photo of her finished work below. Can anyone else make one? I am sure Rhiana would love to see some photos if you do. A big thank you to her as well.
Amazing ! Another week of hard work . Well done ... you deserve a rest ! Hope you all have a very happy Bank Holiday weekend . Take care and I'll see you next week !
Additional Notes for Week Beginning 27th April
Why not start or end the day with a bit of Cosmic Yoga ! In Literacy today we are going to find out what happens in Chapter 3 of 'Ned and the Jungle Animals'. Then have a go at the 2Dos set for you on Purple Mash. If you prefer, read a story of your own and get someone to ask you some questions about the story.
In Numeracy this week we will be working through the lessons for Year 1 Summer Term Week 2 on White Rose Home Learning. This week we will continue to learn about finding half and be learning how to find a quarter of objects and numbers.
Today I thought we would revise some Geography about the countries of the UK. You will need to go to the BBC Bitesize website and find the Home Learning page . In the Year 1 lessons scroll down to the 21st of April's Geography Lesson - Introduction to the UK. Watch the video, do the activities and have fun playing the Pirate Bunnies Game !
If you've got the energy try a Joe Wick's work out this morning. In Literacy I would like you to try and write a short story about anything you like...riding your bike, dragons ( Lulu!), the Tooth Fairy, Pirates, Dinosaurs or anything else you would like to do. Now, you can either write your short story on a piece of paper or you can go on Purple Mash and write it on 2Create a Story ( Set as a 2Do). Remember an illustration is a picture that goes with a story so I would love to see some drawings too !
Later perhaps you could go on Purple Mash and explore Simple City Garden Centre ( set as a 2Do) .Watch the videos, plan a garden and plant some seedlings and watch them grow ! Can you find out 4 things that the gardeners at the Garden Centre have to do? If you prefer you can design a garden and draw it on a piece of paper. Will your garden just have flowers and trees or will it have vegetables and fruit trees too ?
This morning practise some of your best handwriting. Choose a colour house from our handwriting sheet and practise writing those letters. If you can find some lined paper even better. Take care when writing letters with descenders ( those that have tails that go under the line -f,g,j,p,q and y).
Still got lots of energy ? Try another Joe Wicks Work Out ! It's time to find out what happens in Chapter 4 of our class story ' Ned and the Jungle Animals'. Have a go at the 2Dos afterwards on Purple Mash or if you prefer read one of your own story books and get someone to ask you questions about the story. The Numeracy lesson on White Rose is a bit of a challenge today so if it's a struggle you could play a Maths game like Snakes and Ladders, Connect 4 or Battleships.
In PSHE ( Personal,Social and Health Education) today I would like you to think about what makes a good friend. Have a go at the Purple Mash 2 Do in Topic: About Me : My Friend and write about one of your friends.( Set as a 2Do). You could do this on a piece of paper if you prefer.
It's Friday !! Are you having fish fingers for lunch ?! Some phonics today in Literacy. Play some Phonics Play games. Mrs Tierney has made another two brilliant videos about split digraphs ( a-e,e-e,i-e,o-e,u-e) and a game to play too. Take a look !
Another week over ! Well done for working so hard again. Hope you have a lovely weekend. See you next week !
Additional Notes for Week starting Monday 20th April.
Please read these notes for further explanation and resources to help with the timetable
Please see attached a sheet with 'Live and Pre-Recorded lessons' for links to Cosmic Yoga and Joe Wicks.
On most days of the week I have set some 2Do activities on Purple Mash. If you log into Purple Mash each day the 2 Dos should appear for that day.
Purple Mash has a section called 'Serial Mash- Diamonds'. These are chapter books with activities to do after each chapter. Read the first chapter of 'Ned and the Jungle Animals' and try the activities which have been set as a 2Do today. Either read the story independently or with some support from an adult or ask an adult to read the story to you.The White Rose maths activities follow the curriculum we would be teaching this term and there will be a lesson and activities set each day. Have a go at creating your own piece of music by exploring Purple Mash Music 2Explore. There are lots of different instruments to use. This is set as a 2Do so you may be able to send me your music !
Have another look at 'Ned and the Jungle Animals' Chapter 1 and then have a go at the last activity called GPS Resources PDF. GPS stands for Grammar , Punctuation and Spelling. I can't set this as a 2Do so just try the activities on a piece of paper. Have a go at some computing today. Experiment with Purple Mash Computing Tools 2Go and practise giving instructions and directions.
Remember that beautiful handwriting you can do ? See if you can practise your letter formation today. Choose one of the houses to practise.
Today we are going to try and learn some spellings from Purple Mash. Go to Year 1 Spellings and look at the spellings for Autumn 1 Week 1. These spellings have 'ai' or 'oi' sounds in them. Try the 2Do activity and then see if you can learn the spellings using the Look,Say,Cover,Write ,Check way of remembering spellings. There is a list of them and a dictation exercise in the Autumn 1 Week 1 Section too. In Science, find out about the different parts of a plant and what job these parts have. There is a powerpoint on Twinkl that explains the parts of a plant. Try labelling the parts of a plant on the Purple Mash 2 Do I have set today.
Time to read the second chapter of 'Ned and the Jungle Animals' and do the activities set as a 2Do. In PSHE today can you think of someone you haven't seen for a while. Can you write them a cheery postcard with your news ? There is a blank postcard in Purple Mash set as a 2Do or you could make your own. You could even send it to the person !
STOP PRESS White Rose have changed Friday's lesson to a Friday Maths challenge. On Thursday it said it was coming soon so I hope it arrives in time ! If not have a go at a Gareth Metcalfe maths game such as KS1 Sum Turnover. There is a link to his website on the Live and Pre recorded sheet at the top of this page.
Don't forget those phonic sounds you have learnt so well. Play some games on Phonics Play to help you remember them ( Phase 2-5). Have a look at Mrs Tierney's video at the top of these notes. Can you play the Crunchy Carrot game or make one of your own to practise your sounds and blending them to read real and nonsense words?
In Art can you find out about an artist called Piet Mondrian and his paintings. There is a powerpoint about him below. He liked to use the 3 primary colours. Can you find out what the three primary colours are ? If you can, make a picture like one of Mondrian's pieces of work. You just need a piece of paper , a black felt tip, crayon or pencil, a ruler and the three primary colours. With the black pen and ruler draw some lines going down and across the page to make some square and oblong shapes. Then use the primary colours to colour some of the oblongs and square shapes in. Leave some of them white. There is a template below if you want to use it and are able to print it out. There is also one of his paintings to look at .
Phew ! Time for a restful weekend. Well done if you have tried some of the activities on the timetable or done some other activities at home this week. Remember to let me know how you are getting on and as always I love to see photos too !
