Year 1

Welcome to the Year One Home Learning Page!smiley

Morning, I hope you are all okay and not missing school too much. smiley I am keeping busy with my Home Learning and planning. I am also watching all of the signs of Autumn out of my window. I am lucky to have lots of trees around my house and the leaves are slowly starting to change colour. My cat Jacob has also been keeping me company. He likes to be on my lap all of the time! 

 

Parents, please find today's work below... do as much or as little as you feel able to. Home schooling is not easy! You can send pieces in to the school office (these will then be passed to me) or you can keep them all together and give them to me when we get back to school. Please do not feel under pressure to do all of the tasks.

 

With all good wishes, Mrs Trickey.

Handwriting

 

We follow the Kinetic Letters handwriting scheme. Please see the powerpoint bellow for more information about this.  

Kinetic Letters Presentation

Tuesday 22nd September: Please could your child practise the letters h, b, r, n and m from the 'Jumper Family'. We have already covered these in class so it will be a nice place to start. It would be great to do this on some lined paper if possible so the children can 'bump' their letters onto the line. 

 

Wednesday 23rd September

We are going to learn about a new family of letters today. These are from the ‘Abracadabra’ family. They are on p24 of the Kinetic Letters presentation.  The idea is to write a ‘c’ and then ‘abracadabra’ more can be added to in order to make it into other letters.

Please practise the ‘c’ today. You make this by ‘pulling around, down and push’. Please make sure that the letter is sitting on the line. You can practise writing them in the air first or in a tray (baking tray) of sand or salt (you can use sugar, however this might be too tempting to eat).  Use your index finger in the sand to form the letter

 

 

Thursday 24th September

We are going to continue with the ‘Abracadabra’ family of letters today. These are on p24 of the Kinetic Letters presentation.  The idea is to write a ‘c’ and then ‘abracadabra’ this can be added to in order to make it into other letters.

Today we will practise the ‘a’. You make this by ‘pulling around, down and push. Then up like a helicopter, down bump and flick’. Please try to make sure that the letter is sitting on the line. Like yesterday, you can practise writing them in the air first or in a tray (baking tray) of sand or salt.  Use your index finger in the sand to form the letter.

 

Friday 25th September

On Fridays we have been practising the 'Pushing numbers': 2, 3, 5 and 7. It would be great if your child can have a go at writing these on a line. We write our numbers as tall as capital letters. The attachment above has an example of each number. 

Please use the link below if you wish to print some Kinetic Letters paper. 

Reading

 

Please spend a little time reading with your child. Either they can read to you or you could read to them. This could be their school reading book or another of your choice.

 

 

 

 

Literacy

 

We have been becoming familiar with the text Carla's Sandwich. This is a book, however I have adapted the text to suit Year One. Please read this to your child. They will hopefully be able to join in with you.

 

 

 

Tuesday 22nd September Activity: Can you draw Carla and one of the other characters with speech bubbles coming out of their mouths (An adult might need to show you what this is). In the speech bubbles please can you write a sentence that Carla would say and a sentence that your other character would say. 

An example would be Carla saying ' Would you like some?' and the character of Buster saying 'No way! That is gross!'. 

Parents, you will need to help your child with spellings but please encourage them to try and hear the initial sounds in the words. I am happy for them to copy writing.

 

Wednesday 23rd September

A Diary Entry by Mrs Trickey

Today I woke up, fed my cat and had breakfast. After that I rang Mrs Roberts to talk about school. I did some work on my computer and then had some lunch. For lunch I had an olive, pickle and green bean sandwich! I feel a little bit sad that I can’t be at school today teaching my class. I am looking forward to being back together again on the 5th of October! Tomorrow I will do some more work on my computer and I may even have a peanut butter, cracker and cheddar cheese sandwich.

A Diary tells us a bit about someone’s day. Today you are going to write a short diary extract for Carla.

Read through the story of ‘Carla’s Sandwich’ again.  Talk about how Carla is feeling. Can you imagine what it might be like to be Carla.  Can you write a diary extract about Carla’s day?

  • You might like to write a sentence about what happened to Carla at lunchtime.
  • You might like to say how you are feeling.
  • You might like to say what you hope will happen tomorrow.

Parents – I have attached a pro forma sheet to help. You can use this if you wish. This is  a lot of writing to expect from your child so please feel free to scribe part of it for them if you wish. You can also help them with spellings.

Thursday 24th September

Last week we looked at the spellings of the days of the week. We looked at recognising the day of the week by looking at the initial letter to give us a clue.

Can your child tell you a day of the week that starts with the sound /f/? Write Friday together. Do this for the other days of the week. Can you put them into the correct order?

Please see the attached sheet. Your child needs to write the days of the week (they can copy these) and then draw a different sandwich that they would like to have on each day. They can write the ingredients for the sandwich if they wish but they don’t have to.

I have also attached another sheet as an extension activity should they wish to do more. This looks at the order of the days in the week, looking at the terms ‘yesterday’ and ‘tomorrow’.

Phonics

 

We work on 'building' words and blending the sounds in these in order to read the word. We also break words into their sounds (segmenting) in order for the children to spell them. 

 

Tuesday 22nd September: Dictation - Please say the following sentence slowly/ one word at a time. Your child can write the sentence as you dictate it to them.

 

Miss Bell let Jill get a doll off the box.

Did the vet tell Bill the dog ran up the hill?

 

They will hopefully be aware of the 'ss', 'll' and 'ff' (two letters making one sound) although you may need to remind them of these. Please also remind them to use a capital letter for the names Jill and Bill. This is quite a lot of writing for some of the children in the class so please judge when you feel your child has reached their limit. 

 

Wednesday 23rd September

 

We are going to ‘build’ some new words today. You will need small squares of paper or ‘post-it’ notes.  Please write the letters ‘b’, ‘e’, ‘s’ and ‘t’. on the separate small squares of paper. Mix them up.  The idea is that your child will pick the letters in the correct order to make the word ‘best’.

Say ‘We are going to build the word best. Listen carefully to hear the sounds that make the word best . What is the first sound you hear? (Hopefully they will say /b/. You can get that letter that is making the /b/ sound). ‘What is the next sound you hear?’ Bring that letter down. Continue until you have built the word ‘best’. Your child can then have a go at writing the word themselves – sounding it out as they go.

Do the same exercise with the following words:

desk, help, kept, left, nest.

 

 

Thursday 24th September

We are going to ‘build’ some more words today. You will again need small squares of paper or ‘post-it’ notes.  Please write the letters ‘f’, ‘i’, ‘l’, ‘m’ on the separate small squares of paper. Mix the up.  The idea is that your child will pick the letters needed to make the word ‘film’.

Say ‘We are going to build the word film. Listen carefully to hear the sounds that make the word best . What is the first sound you hear? (Hopefully they will say /f/. You can get that letter that is making the /f/ sound). ‘What is the next sound you hear?’ Bring that letter down. Continue until you have built the word ‘film’. Your child can then have a go at writing the word themselves – sounding it out as they go.

Do the same exercise with the following words:

Gift, limp, list, sink, wind

 

 

 

Numeracy

 

Tuesday 22nd September: We have been looking at the 'Step Squad' from CBEEBIES 'Numberblocks'. This is to help us to practise our counting. Please could you watch this (available on BBC iplayer) and talk about the 'Step Squad' numbers. The children could then draw some of the Step Squad characters and write their number underneath. 

Children - I wonder if the number 21 is in the Step Squad? 

 

Wednesday 23rd September - Friday 25th September

 

We follow the ‘White Rose’ scheme of work in maths.  They have a super set up on their website for Home Learning. This provides short video clips of the children’s learning for each day.

Please go to www.whiterosemaths.com  and select the Home Learning tab from the tool bar at the top (it is highlighted in pink).  Then select ‘Year One’ and ‘Week 2’.  

 

This is a weeks worth of Home Learning. There is a worksheet to accompany each lesson. Please find these attached below.

Afternoon Learning 

 

Tuesday 22nd September : PSHE and Relationships (Personal, Social and Health Education)

 

We have been talking about feelings and the fact that we all have them. As a 'warm up' you might like to discuss how you are all feeling today. At school, we have started to talk about colours which go with our feelings. A 'Green' feeling means that we are feeling relaxed and ready to learn. A 'blue' feeling may mean that we are feeling a little 'slow'. This might mean that we are feeling sleepy or upset or a little sad. If we are feeling this way then we are not ready to learn. We have some exercises in class to help us to feel more 'Green'. If we are feeling 'Red' then we are feeling 'Fast'. This might mean that we are excited or cross. Again, we discuss strategies in class for dealing with these feelings and ways in which we can help ourselves to feel more 'Green'. 

 

Please find attached below a resource file. Firstly, you can ignore the alien (his name is Maz and we use him to explain things to as he knows nothing about life on Earth). Last week we told him what we know about feelings. Secondly there are some feelings words, followed by some scenarios, followed by some help cards. 

 

You could have a go at acting out some of the feelings words. What do our faces look like when we are sad? After that you can read some of the feelings scenarios (you don't have to do all of these). Please match a 'Feeling' to these and then suggest a 'Help Card' that might help in this situation.

 

This word doesn't have to be recorded, it can be discussion based. I will leave it up to you.

Wednesday 23rd September:

 

The children would normally have Art with Mrs Roberts this afternoon.

Art for Wednesday 

This afternoon we were going to look closely at Strawberries and taste them but you can do this with any fruit you have at home e.g an apple or an orange.

 

Using the AntTrail Technique to draw the outline of the fruit on white paper carefully looking at the shape. Remember the Ant Trail Technique is small dashes until you are happy with the shape then snail trail over the top.

 

Use your marks e.g soldiers,spirals,circles,zig zags and any other marks you know to fill in the shape. Please use just pencil the first time or 1 coloured gel pen.

 

If you have time draw another fruit using the same technique but this time if you have a watercolour box at home use this to paint with the soldier technique. Maybe your mum might have a cotton wool fairy pad for you to use.

 

hope it goes ok.

 

Mrs Roberts
