Home Learning WB: 11.05.20

 

Friday 15th May 2020

Happy Friday! Well we’ve made it to the end of another week of home learning! Well done for all your hard work. I hope you are able to relax and enjoy your weekend, perhaps you should think about what you want to do over the weekend. I plan to start reading my new book that Mr Stokes got me for my birthday and I need to paint my last two fence panels!

Here is the home learning for today:

1. Maths Task 1 - please complete up to 30 minutes on Mathletics https://login.mathletics.com/. The tasks have been assigned for you to do.

2. Maths Task 2- We are continuing with our White Rose maths and this week is all about fractions! 

  • Please go tohttps://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
  • Please click on Summer - Week 2 w/c 27th April
  • You will see Lesson 5 Friday Maths Challenge. This is today’s lesson.
  • Watch the video and have a go at the activity. Remember to check your answers at the end!

3. English Task 1 – Complete 15 minutes practise on Spelling Frame https://spellingframe.co.uk/  I have set new words for you to practise, Spelling Rule 19 ‘ow’ (Group 1) or Spelling Rule 5 ‘ar’ (Groups 2-5).

4. English Task 2 - Learning Objective - To identify an appropriate spelling of the sound 'or'

Activity - As we know, there is more than one way of spelling different sounds we have already learnt. Today I would like you to identify which spelling of 'or' goes with each picture. 

Look at the chart below - you can use this or just write a list of the words on your own piece of paper.

**Extra Art Activity**

If you are feeling arty today I thought I would share The Dorset Art Spy theme for the week. This week’s theme is ‘under the sea’. This is great for us in Year 1 because usually we have a topic all about the sea in the Summer Term. There are lots of different things that you could create that would show something from under the sea such as: fish, a coral reef, divers diving under the sea or sharks! You could paint a picture, use colour pencils or make a collage. I have found some pictures to give you all some ideas! I would love to see what art work you create!

Good Morning Butterflies! I miss seeing each of you every day but, hopefully it won’t be too much longer until we can all be back together again! Did you start your reading challenge yesterday? Alice did and she was excited about all the different ways to read and says she can’t wait to be a news reporter!

Here is the home learning for today:

1. Maths Task 1 - please complete up to 30 minutes on Mathletics https://login.mathletics.com/. The tasks have been assigned for you to do.

4. English Task 2 - Today we will focus on Grammar. Learning Objective - To distinguish between adjectives, verbs and nouns. 

Activity - Let's remind ourselves of what each word means. 

An adjective is a describing word - pretty, big, cool, hot.

A verb is a doing word - run, jump, hop, drink.

A noun is a thing - table, pencil, ball.

You can watch these videos to help explain a little further https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr

Now I'd like you to get a piece of paper and split it into three parts - then write these headings at the top.

Noun                                         Verb                                    Adjective 

Write as many words as you can underneath each heading in 5 minutes. You could make it more challenging by turning it into a scavenger hunt around your home! Run around and find objects, describe them and say what they are for or what they do!

Hi Butterflies! It has been very windy out these last couple of days, hasn’t it? Especially on Monday,  when I went for a lovely walk down to the church in the village with Alice and Bobby. Have you ever been there? I hope you have been getting out in the fresh air for your daily exercise. Remember you don’t have to walk you could cycle or scoot! Alice has just learnt how to ride her bike without stabilisers and is enjoying going for bike rides everywhere!

Success Criteria - Use adjectives, use conjunctions to join parts of sentences, remember capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. 

Activity - Re-read the story The Mouse, The Frog and The Little Red Hen. 

*First of all we are going to think about describing the characters. Look at the story character describing words in the picture below. Draw or use the table underneath to copy a describing word under each character - which one fits best?

Can you think of any other describing words to go underneath each character?

*Next, draw a picture of Hen being busy - underneath the picture can you write 4 sentences about what Hen does in the story. Try to make sure you extend your sentences using conjunctions like 'and', for example 'Hen bakes a loaf of bread and does all the cleaning in the house.'

Feel free to do as much or as little as you like - it's interesting to see how many different types of reading you can actually do!! All you need to do it tick them off once you've done them!

Enjoy! :-)

First look at the question words below - What do you notice about the 'h' in all of the words? It is silent isn't it? We don't need to sound it out when we say the words. 

Practise spelling these words on a piece of paper - you could rainbow write them in different colours, write them in different sizes or if different places all over your paper! 

We are going to write questions today from Hen, Frog or Mouse - you choose. You must start with one of the question words above! For example:

  • When will Frog and Mouse help me?
  • When is the bread going to be ready to eat?

Remember to write in first person (as a character) and to use question marks at the end!
