Online Learning - Week Beginning 14.9.20
Hello Dolphins, Penguins and Sharks. It has been a strange start to the year so far! You've all settled really well into year 1 and we have enjoyed getting to know you. It won't be long before you are back in school learning exciting new things again. In the meantime, this week we would like you to have a go at some of these learning activities. You will need your learning pack to do some of these activities and record your work in your home learning books. We look forward to seeing you back at school, until then stay well and keep safe.
Maths - Activity 1
Using your number formation template (see below) in your home learning pack, have a go at forming the numbers 0 - 10 correctly. Use the video below to show you the right way to form the numbers. Once you have formed the numbers correctly, have a go at writing them without the template in your home learning book.
Challenge: In your home learning book, try writing from 0 - 10 and then from 10 - 0, each time representing each number with a pictorial next to it. For example, for the number 4, you could draw 4 circles and for the number 9, you could draw 9 apples.
Maths - Activity 2
For this activity you will need the tens frame (see below) in your home learning pack and either the 10 double sided counters (red/yellow) or the 10 unifix cubes. Your task is to represent each number from 1-10 in all the different ways possible. See how many different ways you can find to represent each number on the tens frame. Have a go at showing what you have learnt by forming the number correctly and drawing your representations in your home learning book.
For example, below you can see the number 5 is represented in different ways yet the total amount being represented is still 5. Sometimes we can recognise the number of objects in a small group without the need to count them. This is called subitising.
Maths - Activity 3
We would like you to go a number hunt around your home. How many different numbers can you find? You may want to look at items similar to the ones show below for ideas. Have a go at drawing the object you have found as well as the numbers in your home learning book.
English - Activity 1 (Writing)
Using the letter formation template (see below) have a go at forming the uppercase (capital) letters and lowercase (smaller) letters correctly. Use the arrows on the template to help you start in the correct place. Once you have formed the letters correctly, have a go at writing them without the template in your home learning book.
Challenge: Once you have practised the letters try writing your name correctly. If you really want to challenge yourself, write a sentence about something you have done at home e.g. I went to the park.
English - Activity 2 (Writing)
Look at the pictures on the image below. In your home learning books write the cvc word to go with each picture.
cvc = consonant, vowel, consonant
Consonant - b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r, s, t, v, w, x, y, z
Vowel - a, e, i, o, u
Challenge: Have a go at writing CVCC words and then CCVC words for the pictures below in your home learning books.
CVCC = consonant, vowel, consonant, consonant
CCVC = consonant, consonant, vowel, consonant
English Activity - 3 (Reading)
Look at the pictures below then read the 3 words. Which word matches the picture?
To read the words say each sound and then put the sounds together to make the word e.g. t-i-n = tin.
Once you have chosen the correct word draw the picture and write the word in your home learning book.
Challenge: Write a simple sentence for each picture e.g. The cat sat on the mat.
English Activity - 4 (Phonics)
Practise the Read Write Inc Set 1 speed sounds. If there any any sounds you find tricky, keep going over them.
See the videos below for teaching Set 1 Sounds and how to pronounce Set 1 sounds correctly.
See the video below for helping your child to blend sounds together to read words.
Challenge: Complete the Set 1 Speed Sounds Book. See link below.
Complete any activities in the book in your home learning book.
In Science we are learning about our senses! Look through the powerpoint below to learn about what our 5 senses are, and which part of our body we use for each one.
Have a walk around your house or garden to see what you can see! Perhaps you could draw what you can see and label it with initial sounds, or simple words and sentence.
This week we will learn about the Good Samaritan. This can be read in the Christian Holy Book - The Bible, in the book of Luke. It is a story that was told by Jesus.
Below is a video of the Good Samaritan. Watch the video, and then answer the questions below.
This week we will learn about how to clap to the beat with Jack Hartman!
Watch the video below and join in with the beat!
Last week at school, we began to learn about how to draw a self portrait. We used mirrors to look at the features of our face such as eyes, eyelashes, eyebrows, nose, mouth, ears and hair. We used a pencil to draw these facial features.
Using what you have at home, we would love you to create a portrait of yourself! You may choose to draw, paint or collage a portrait of yourself, and it would be lovely for your teachers to see what you have made.
Use the pictures below to help you choose which media to use.
We're going on a bear hunt with Cosmic Kids!
Look at the fantastic work you've done at home!
