Welcome back Year 1!
I hope you have been enjoying the tasks I have asked you to do at home. I am so impressed with the work I have seen so far, you have shown a great deal of motivation towards your home learning. It is really important to try your best even though we are not together inside our classroom.
If you are struggling to access any of the home learning, please contact the school and we can try and help as best as we can.
Here is your learning for today:
Keep reading every day, this should be for 15 minutes.
Remember this may not always be reading a full book cover to cover. It may be looking at the front cover and making predictions about what you think the story will be about. You may read a couple of pages and think about what might happen next and how you know this. Once you have read the book all the way through, it is a good idea to reflect on what you have read.
Ask yourself questions such as:
Here are the links to the two websites you can use at home if you do not have access to more books at home:
Here is the next lesson within Phase 4. Make sure you are confident with all the sounds and the words in each lesson. If you need to recap the previous lesson do this before moving on!!
Can you remember what an acrostic poem is?
Here are two poems about Winter. Read them both and decide which is an acrostic poem.
Which poem do you prefer? Can you tell me why?
Today your English work is on Purple Mash. Your task is to create an acrostic poem about 'HUMANS'.
I will be able to mark this and you will be able to see the comments I leave.
I have written two for you to have a look at. See if you can do your own, it may be useful to write words or phrases that start with the initial letter first, then choose your favourite ones to create your poem.
Watch and join in with the lesson on the White Rose website. Today's is called 'Order groups of objects'.
Then have a go at the worksheet:
Don't forget to complete the additional challenge on Purple Mash. Some of you have already completed this and I am so impressed!!
On Purple Mash today there is an activity on Materials. Here you need to complete the sentences to describe the materials and objects you are shown in the pictures. There are words for you to choose from on the side.
For example, if you are shown a plastic chair the sentences could read:
The chair is made of plastic. It is hard.
You could extend this activity by finding objects in your house and describing them in the same format. Write these down on a piece of paper and take a picture and send it in. I would love to see more of your hard work at home.
This is a very difficult time, if you need anything explaining more or advice on learning I am happy to help as best as I can, please contact me via the office at:
Have a great day Year 1 and parents/carers too!
