Handwriting

 

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

Kinetic Letters Presentation

Monday 28th September 2020

I have included a video of me doing the actions for this letter below (I have to keep it short as there is an upload limit of 75mb)

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 ‘d’. You make this by ‘pulling around, down and push. Then up like a helicopter with a big engine, down bump and flick’. Please try to 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.  Use your index finger in the sand to form the letter.

Today we will practise the ‘g’. You make this by ‘pulling around, down and push. Then up like a helicopter, down, on down and pull around for a tail’.

Practising with your index finger helps with the positioning of the hand and arm for writing. It helps to form ‘good habits’ of an ‘extended’ wrist for writing.

Friday 2nd October

Today's number to practise is 6. In my demonstration I have used flour in a plate (with slightly raised sides). You could use a tray with sugar, salt, glitter, corn flour mixed with water or what ever else you have available at home for your child to practise forming number 6 in.

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.

 

Monday 28th September

I have added a reading comprehension below. Please read this along with your child. You can scribe the answers to the comprehension questions for them. 

Wednesday 29th September  

You could have a go at writing a ‘Book Review’ for one of your favourite story books.

Thursday 1st October

Read and answer some silly questions to feed a T-Rex!

Use the link below and select the CVCC and CCVC words.

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.

 

 

 

Monday 28th September

Today we are going to look at instructions for making a sandwich. Parents will need to help with reading these.

Please see the attached file for the sheets.

The most important words with this are the sequencing words. These are; First, next, after that, then, finally. To help the children to remember the sequencing words there are actions to go with them. Please see the very short video showing those actions.

Sequencing__Words[1].mp4

Have a go at saying the instructions using the actions. After that you can cut out the pictures to go along with the sentences.

There is an extensions sheet for you to write out the instructions – you can do this if you wish.

Tuesday  29th September

For Literacy we follow the idea of ‘Talk for Writing’ which aims to explore and embed a story. This gives children the advantage of having a bank of ideas ready for writing. Once the child has become familiar with the text the next stage is to ‘innovate’ on this. This means we change elements of the story whilst keeping the structure the same. In the case of ‘Carla’s Sandwich’ the children will be changing the main characters and the sandwich ingredients.

(Please don’t worry if you don’t get through all of this …I think I have planned rather a lot!)

  1. Have a read through the text of Carla’s Sandwich again.
  2. Brainstorm some different character names. Can your child write a different character name in each of the clouds? They can copy these from books or just write names they like. Please encourage them to use a capital letter at the beginning of each name.

3. Concentrate on the first three lines of  the text.

 

Carla brought weird sandwiches to school.

Buster noticed it first.

On Monday, he was sitting next to Carla at lunchtime.

 

Innovate/change the name of the characters in this part.

Your child can either write the whole thing out again using their own chosen names or use the scaffolded piece to write the names in.

(Please don’t worry if you don’t get through all of this …I think I have planned rather a lot!)

 

We have done lots of work on various sandwich ingredients.

This is a little exercise to look at a way of showing likes and dislikes on a scale (We use this sort of scale quite a lot in Personal, social and Health Education).

Have a think about some ingredients (try to think of different ingredients from the ones already used in the text of Carla’s Sandwich).

This time innovate/change the sandwich ingredients.

 

‘Eww’, said __________. ‘What is that?’ (It was green and slimy).

‘It’s an olive, pickle and green bean sandwich.’ said _________ ‘I made it myself. Would you like some?’

 

Your child can either write this out themselves or they can use the scaffolded piece below.

Thursday 1st October

Today we will innovate on the next day of the story. You have already chosen a name to replace ‘Carla’, you will now need to choose a name to replace ‘Leslie’. You will also need to think of some more ingredients for today’s sandwich. Will it be yucky or yummy?

 

On Tuesday, at lunchtime Carla sat down with her sandwich.

‘Eww’ said Leslie. ‘What is that?’ (It was yellow and white and oozing).

‘It’s my banana, cottage cheese delight on a tasty toasted baguette’ said Carla.  ‘I made it myself. Would you like some?’

‘No way,’ said Leslie. ‘That is disgusting!’

‘It’s not disgusting’ said Carla, ‘It’s different and I like to be different.’

Leslie moved away from Carla.

 

Please find the scaffolded piece for this attached below.

Friday 2nd October

On Sunday it is the Harvest Festival, a time when Christians thank god for the crops which have been safely harvested. If you would like to find out more about Harvest, please have a look through the attached PowerPoint. Then your child can have a think about something they are thankful for. On the attachment there is a space for them to draw a picture of what they are thankful for and a sentence has been started, ready for them to complete.  

Top tips: remember finger spaces and a full stop at the end of your sentence.     

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. 

 

Monday 28th September

Today we are going to look at some nonsense words and do some sound swapping.

Write the following letters on individual cards/pieces of paper/post its.

f g k m o r s u

These are the letters that make the sounds that we will need.

Put the letters together to make the nonsense word ‘grus’. Sound out the word together. Now say ‘rus’. What letters do I need to add or take away to make ‘rus’?  Now say ‘ros’. What letters do I need to add or take away to make the word ‘ros’?  Continue with ‘os’, ‘us’, ‘fus’, ‘fusk’, ‘usk’.

You can practise writing the words too.

Tuesday 29th September

Today we are going to continue to look at some nonsense words and do some sound swapping.

Write the following letters on individual cards/pieces of paper/post its.

f g k m o r s u

These are the letters that make the sounds that we will need.

Put the letters together to make the nonsense word ‘musk’. Sound out the word together. Now say ‘mosk’. What letters do I need to add or take away to make ‘mosk’?  Make those changes and write the word.

Now say ‘mok’. What letters do I need to add or take away to make the word ‘mok’?  Make the changes and write the word.

Continue with mog, smog, smug, sug, suf, smuf

Wednesday 30th  September

Today we are going to have a look at some ‘every day words’. These are words that we see in reading but may not follow the ‘rules’ of the sounds looked at so far. In this case we just point to the letters and tell the children the sound that the letter/s is/are making.  

The words we will look at today are the, for, of, are, was

Everyday words

Still image for this video

Have a go at writing these words. Can you spell them correctly?

Thursday 1st October

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 ‘w’, ‘i’, ‘n’, ‘k’ 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 ‘wink’.

Say ‘We are going to build the word ‘wink’. Listen carefully to hear the sounds that make the word best . What is the first sound you hear? (Hopefully they will say /w/. You can get that letter that is making the /w/ sound). ‘What is the next sound you hear?’ Bring that letter down. Continue until you have built the word ‘wink’. 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:

pond, soft, bump, dust

 

Friday 2nd October

Continuing on from yesterday, we are going to 'build' some more words. You will need squares of paper or 'post-its' with g, u, l, p, s, t, h, n, j, m ready for your child to build the following five words: gulp, gust, hunt, jump, must. Please do continue to ask them what sound they can hear first, next etc. If they can have a go at writing each word, after making it that would be fantastic.  

Numeracy

 

 

Thursday 1st October

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 3’. 

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

Please continue with the ‘White Rose’ daily Maths.

If you would like something a little different you could choose a number and represent it in as many ways as you can. I have made a little video below to demonstrate.

The number 13

Friday 2nd October

As a little refresh, to remember the names of 2d shapes (up to 8 sides), watch this clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjv39j6/articles/ztpwdmn.

Next you can have a go at sorting some 2d shapes using the activity sheet below. 

 

Afternoon Learning 

 

 YEAR 1 ART FROM MRS ROBERTS FOR WEDNESDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER

This afternoon we will be looking in detail at an orange (a lemon or a lime will also work)

Cut your orange in half and look carefully at the colours and patterns that you can see. Look at the different layers of the orange ..eg the skin, pith, the juicy segments and the shape in the middle.

 

You may be able to print off the sheet in the photo which requires you to fill in the sections of the orange with different marks. You may have to draw it first using the Ant Training Technique. Find something round for the outline of the orange. Please use just a pencil.

 

When you have finished this sheet you could repeat this idea using watercolours or gel pens. Maybe you could draw a smaller version. I have given you some ideas on the sheet in the photo.

 

Hopefully next week we will have our Art Lesson in school...Hurrah!

The Life Cycle of an Apple  and Apple Tree Seasons

If you have managed to get hold of some different varieties of apples have a taste of each one. You may have found varieties such as cox, golden delicious, pink lady, gala… (There are about 7500 varieties grown worldwide of which about 2200 are grown in the UK – although supermarkets tend to only stock a small variety) Which one is your favourite?

Have a look at the following ‘You Tube’ clips about apples and their life cycle.

Talk about the different seasons and what happens to the apple in each season.

Activities

You might like to draw an apple.

Have a look at the following pictures and put them in order of the seasons.

Or colour in this picture showing an apple tree in the four different seasons.

You might also like to listen to a story about a man called Johnny Appleseed.

PSHE – Personal Social and Health Education (Including Relationships)

 

Today we are going to be thinking about different types of behaviour and how these can make us and others feel.

Hopefully by the end of the lesson your child will be able to;

  • Give examples of acts of kindness
  • Reflect on the impact of kind/unkind actions  
  • Identify what they can do if they (or others) experience unhelpful behaviour
  • Recognise the importance of telling someone (when to do this and who to tell)

 

Starting Point  (Discussions based)

Can you think of examples of being kind and unkind – maybe three of each. How does it make us feel when we are kind? Or when others are kind to us?

Main Lesson (This can be discussion based or you can scribe ideas if you wish)

What sort of behaviours do we see at school?

You could think of this in terms of Red, Green and Blue behaviours.

The colours appear on a ‘windscreen’.

As talked about last week 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 see the attachment below for strategies to help us feel ready to learn/ green.

Behaviours we may see at school….

Green behaviours – sitting, facing the teacher, shoulders relaxed, smiling, listening to instructions…

Blue behaviours – looking sad, looking tired, eyes closing, laying on the desk, crying…

Red behaviours – shouting, scribbling on work, fists clenched, walking/running in the classroom, not listening to others…

 

How do we feel if we are Red? Green? Or Blue?

How does it make us feel when we see others are behaving in a Red, Green or Blue way?

If someone’s behaviour is upsetting us – what can we do (we can use the ‘help cards’ looked at last week);

  • Do nothing
  • Tell someone who cares about them
  • Write down what is worrying them
  • Tell a friend at school
  • Tell a teacher or an adult at school

Follow up activities:

  1. Mark- make your own ‘Feelings’ Windscreen. How are you feeling now?

2. Do a kind thing for someone else. Eg. You could make a card and give it to someone else or you could do something to help someone else. How did it make them feel? How did it make you feel?

Let’s Move – Autumn Weather

 

This is a programme from BBC School Radio which is available on iplayer.

The children need a little bit of space to do it but not too much so indoors is fine. There is a little bit of partner work – so a sibling or adult joining in would be great, however it can all be done on your own too.

You may like to draw an Autumn picture afterwards.
