Dear Year One parents and families,

Thank you so much to you all for taking part in our zoom calls last week, it was lovely to see all of the children and how much they have all grown over the lockdown period. We are grateful for all of the work and support from parents during this time. As our value this month is ‘independence’, this week when we take part in the zoom calls, I would like children to share how they have been independent since not being at school. This could be as simple as looking after a pet, making their bed in the morning or getting themselves dressed.

Many thanks,

Miss White

There are three different types of reading papers along with follow up questions, I woud recommend that children stick with the first reading paper or the second. The first has one star in the left hand corner and the second has two. Please dont worry about the third as children not all children will be familiar with reading comprehension and this is just a practise in preperation for year 2. This video will support and reinforce your child’s learning after the sorting activity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSIVXZrWMK4

The app ‘Teach Your Monster To Read’ has become available to use via iPad or computer free of charge. This website covers reading words and whole sentences including recapping phonics sounds. Children will need supervision and assistance when using this app.

 

Please see new set of spellings attached below.

 

PSHE

Our new value as we enter the month of June is independence. Other values that may link with this are self-belief and determination. How can you be independent? I would like you to learn something new this week that encourages independence. This could be washing your own dishes after your breakfast, lunch or tea. It could be that you are putting your own clothes away after they have been washed. You could make your bed in the morning when you get up. Maybe if you have a pet at home, how are you independently looking after it?

 

Topic/Science

This week I would like you to investigate what some scientific terms mean, these are;

  • Amphibian
  • Reptile
  • Mammal
  • Birds
  • Fish
  • Insects

 

This will then help us to then group different types of animals. There is an activity below which has pictures of different animals, your job is to group the animals, thinking about the characteristics of the different groups. The PowerPoint will help you to group these pictures.

‘Save Our Zoo’

As you have probably heard this week Chester Zoo need our help in order to keep the zoo open while it is currently closed to visitors. Chester Zoo need donations from the public in order to cater for the animals. Please can you make your own poster to raise awareness and show your support for the Zoo.

Although under the heading summer term wk 5 (w/c 1.06.2020 ) the subject is mass, we will be clicking on the link directly beside this which says ‘click here to find an alternative plan’ as we have already covered mass earlier in lockdown.

 Before or even after you have completed your shape work, you may like to go on a shape hunt around your house or garden to explore what everyday things are 3D shapes.

 

English

This week we are going to be looking at poems. We have shared many poems in school and I thought I would attach one from the book ‘Jelly Boots, Smelly Boots’ by Michael Rosen. Have a read and discuss whether you like the poem and what bits you like best. Following that, I would like you to go this link https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-1/english#subjects and scroll right to the bottom where there is the heading ‘poems’.

The week before half term we looked at the alternate sounds for ‘igh’. This week we are going to look at the alternate sounds for ‘ee’. Please see sheet attached with pictures of different words that have the ‘ee’ sound. When you have identified the word, please could you ask your child to write this in a sentence. For example, the first picture is showing a leek. The sentence may be something like; Please can I have some leek and potato soup for my lunch today?

This video also shows the different ‘ee’ sounds; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9I-8iKE3Gk

 

Topic

 

Following on with our animal topic, I have some quizzes attached below which would like you to investigate what animals eat for their lunch and what animals homes are like that they live in. I would like you to have a go at thinking which animal you think may live in this house first.

Phonics

This week we are focusing on the alternate ‘igh’ sound. Please find resources to support this attached. There are flashcards of the different ‘igh’ sounds we may see in words. The sheet shows different pictures, have a go at writing the word on a piece of paper, thinking carefully about which ‘igh’ sound it contains.

Video to reinforce learning - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HNpJFVEjFU

Please continue to learn spellings. I have attached an idea to make a fortune teller that contains the days of the week. This can be used for your spellings, you could play with someone in your house and test each other on how to spell certain words.

Following last weeks task to research an animal of your own choice. This week I will attach a sheet which I would like you to look at. With your grown ups at home, discuss the names of these animals. If you dont know their name, dont worry, this gives you chance to learn something new and find out what it is called. Look at how they are similar and how they are different. There will be a sheet attached, which contains three animals and a space to choose an animal yourself. You will need to label the animal and write a sentence to describe them. For the first animal which is a dog, this could be something such as; 

A dog has two ears, four paws, a tail and two eyes. Their bodies have fur and they use their nose to smell.

What type of environment do they like to live in?

Is it hot, or cold?

What does it eat?

Art

I would like you to have a go at creating your own sunshine picture using something other than a paintbrush to paint with. Ideally you may need something that creates a dot or a round printing shape. This could be a stick, or the suggested item to use is a cotton bud. You can draw your sushine first if you would like, or use the template included, otherwise you can have a go freehand.

 The Highway Rat by Julia Donaldson - Listen and watch the story here https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09kkt1k/the-highway-rat 

Monday – In the story, the Highway Rat steals from others around him. Can you make a wanted poster for the Highway Rat, listing his name, what he looks like and his crimes?

Tuesday – At the end of the story, the cunning duck becomes the hero of the story by saving the day. If you were the hero in the story, what would you do to stop the Highway Rat from stealing? How would you help?

Wednesday – Can you write a book/story review of the Highway Rat? What did you like/dislike about the story, and why? Is there anything you would have changed about it?

Thursday – The Highway Rat finally gets caught out for his unkind acts towards others. Can you make a newspaper report about the moment he is caught out and what happens to him?

Friday – Can you write an apology from the Highway Rat to the other animals that he stole from to say sorry for what he had done and ask for their forgiveness?

Please find a new set of spellings attached.

I would like you to write a recount of your Easter Sunday, telling me what you did using sequence words such as first, next, after that, then, and finally. A recount is telling someone about something that has already happened. Please use detail to explain in your sentetences, such as who was there and what you were doing. Dont forget capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and to read your work back to make sure that it makes sense. I would also like you to include what your favourite part was this could include helping to make dinner, eating easter egg, or going on an egg hunt.

This month would be the start of our new value 'curiosity'. Please discuss together and ask your children to think of some of their own questions for things that they are curious to know the answers for about the world around them. To start think about these questions;

2. Why cant we see in the dark?

 I'm sure many children at this time will be 'curious' about the Coronavirus and have many questions in this unsettled time. Below is a link for an online and downloadable book that has been created with the intention to settle a few worries and answer a few questions.
