Good Morning Year 1!
I hope you are all getting on well at home and managing to stay motivated to learn. When you all send your work over to me, it makes me so happy that I can respond to you directly - just like I would in school!
Please send the work you do to:
If you send your work over to that, it will go straight into me!! I can't wait to see more of all of your hard work.
Here is your learning for today:
Yesterday you read most of the story 'Everyone got wet', and made a prediction about what you think could happen next. This is such a good skill to learn, so well done you.
Go back and find the story again:
Today we are going to see if the predictions you made are correct. Re-read what you wrote yesterday, then read the story all the way through.
Were you correct? Let me know!!
Today I would like you to have a go at the 'Play Activity 1'. You can click on this, it's just above the book. This is a sequencing activity, which is another core skill to practise when reading a book.
Continue with Phase 4, today you will complete lesson 25.
English: To describe a setting using the suffixes -er and -est.
Here is the next image from the story. The book is called 'Where the Wild Things Are', have you read it before?
Looking at the picture, discuss these questions:
Today we are going to use words which end in -er and -est. These are called suffixes they are the endings attached to words to slightly change their meaning.
Can you describe three trees like I have done here?
The tall tree twists and turns.
The taller tree is as tall as my house.
The tallest tree touches the sky.
Have a go yourself and send in your work. You could draw a picture of your three trees to go alongside your writing.
As an extra challenge, can you use the word 'and' in all three sentences?
Maths: To add by counting on.
Watch the video, join in with the lesson then complete the worksheet. If you cannot print this off or edit it online, you can write your answers on a piece of paper and send a picture of that work over instead. Lots of you have been doing this and it's great!
There is an extra addition task set on PurpleMash for you to complete. This is available to do for a whole week, so attempt it when you feel comfortable with the task!
Science: To discuss materials and their uses.
Today you are going to think about which material is most appropriate for objects. Think about these questions: (remember to speak in full sentences when you discuss)
Would you make a chair out of wool? Why/why not?
Could you make a t-shirt out of glass? Why/why not?
Would you build a house out of fabric? Why/why not?
Have a go at the task on Purple Mash. You need to read the sentence and choose the best material for that use.
As an extra task, could you make up your own questions for me, like the ones I have written above? Write them on a piece of paper and ask your parent/carer to send over an image and I will get back to you.
