Happy Easter Year 1!

You have all worked so hard in your first two weeks of home schooling. We have been so impressed with the photos and work that you have shared with us this week, so please scroll back to last week’s post to find the star certificates! ⭐I am sure you can all think of something you are really proud of achieving this week – we would love to see your certificates shared on the blog.

We are now beginning the Easter holidays and we know you all deserve a well-earned break so we won’t be setting you daily Maths and Literacy activities. However, please keep up with practising your spellings and aim to read at least three times a week. Don’t forget you can access lots of free e-books using Oxford Owl (instructions are in reading diaries). 📚                       https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

We know that this break from school is going to be slightly different so we have created a list of fun activities that you can do –  without needing to leave your home! Please also feel free to look back on any of the Literacy and Maths activities (particularly online and PurpleMash games) that you have been set over the past couple of weeks – I am sure the children would enjoy playing some of these games again! Remember, there is no obligation to complete these, we just thought they may be useful to have…and fun for the whole family!

Year 1 Home Schooling Friday 3rd April 2020

Hello Y1! Well done for making it to the end of term and continuing all the amazing work at home that you would in class. It will make all the difference and we are incredibly proud of you all!

Here are some lesson ideas for Friday.

Friday is spelling day again – so can parents test you on the spellings you have practised at home all week? Again, please send your scores to Mrs Goodwin and Mrs Lee via the PurpleMash email as they cannot wait to hear how you get on.

Here are the next set of spellings which you may already have a paper copy of:

Year 1 spellings Spring Week 12 suffix ing

Mrs Goodwin’s Group spellings e-e

Mrs Lee’s Group (recap or er)

For Literacy today there is a final game linked to our theme of suffixes this week. This time we are looking at plurals. On PurpleMash a 2do has been set to match the singular (one object) to the plural (more than one object) e.g cat to cats. This is a fun memory style game so have fun!

We have also popped on a fun Science/Art activity as our topic of Materials comes to an end. Can you draw a picture of your house, choosing the correct materials it is made from? Here is a picture I have attempted of my house :) It is trickier than it looks!

 

Phonics Video

Here is the eighth helpful video from Miss Hammond. She has created a video to help you continue practising your sounds at home! We hope you find it useful.

We will be uploading all these videos to the phonics section on the school website, accessible via this link

Year 1 Home Schooling Thursday 2nd April 2020

Here are the activities for today for Literacy and Phonics:

Miss Hammond is continuing to make her videos to help keep up the practise at home of the phonics flashcards and year 1 sounds. You could play the 4-in-a-row game again as that proved popular today.

In addition to this there is a new game in your 2do’s on PurpleMash, linked to your spellings. This is a little fun quiz. You can set the time to show the words for as little or as long a time as you like.

Then, for Literacy put your suffix knowledge into practise with this activity:

You choose the correct word ending for the word. Maybe you can write some sentences of your own with the year 1 word endings? You could use words from the game or even words from your spellings.

Hope you enjoy this. You will be suffix experts in no time!

Here is the seventh helpful video from Miss Hammond. She has created a video to help you continue practising your sounds at home! We hope you find it useful.

Wednesday 1st April – Year 1 Maths Activity

Hi Year 1,

It was really lovely to see that so many of you enjoyed exploring the number bonds to 20 yesterday. Today, you are going to play a couple of games to carry on practising – and hopefully get a little quicker.

Please keep the number cards that you use in today’s activity, as we will need them again tomorrow.

Year 1 Home Learning Wednesday 1st April 2020

For phonics today we thought it would be nice for you to play a 4-in-a-row style game using the year 1 ‘ed suffix’ words from this week. Attached is a game sheet we have created for you but if you can’t print, you could make your own by drawing a quick grid and writing the words in it and if you don’t have counters, use a coloured dot instead.

For Literacy, following on in our Easter theme we have set a PurpleMash 2do to write about why Easter is celebrated. You can add images to decorate it. There are headings on the page to help give you ideas about what you might write about. Try to include capital letters and full stops.

We have loved seeing your colourful egg designs too.
