Corona virus isolation tasks for year 1
Here are some suggestions on what you could do to support your children at home. Many of these are online based but it would be good for your children to record their ideas or work onto paper to continue to practice the skills they have been using so far in year 1!
Twinkl are offering free access to resources. Go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS.
This is an incredible library of resources which link to activities relating to what children learn in school. I will be suggesting worksheets to help support home learning.
An online maths resource 'Komodo Maths' has offered free activities and resources for children to access. Not all of its services are free but it is still a kind gesture. Here is the link to their website.
Phonics play is another online resource that have unlocked many of their previously paid for activities.
Joe Wicks known as 'The Body Coach' will be holding P.E lessons every day at 9am starting on Monday 23rd March on his You Tube channel.
Cosmic Kids Yoga is another fun P.E You Tuber that children would enjoy.
If you have a look at the file further down this page called Curriculum Map Y1 Spr 2, which is the current term, you will see the things that we should have been covering this year. In particular, for English we have been looking at the traditional tales e.g. Jack and the bean stalk, the three little pigs etc. We have been sequencing the events and reporting on them as newspaper journalists. We were about to move onto the book 'Small mouse Big city' which would have used lots of descriptive writing about the different settings and characters using a range of adjectives.
In maths we have just begun measurement and would have been moving on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
Please continue to practice the phonics that was handed out previously as well as reading as often as possible!
Also, don't forget to check out the links at the bottom of the page!
More information will be posted on here over time.
Thank you for all your support during these times.
I will be updating ideas and suggestions on a weekly basis to help you support your children with their home learning.
Our topic this half term is 'How does our food grow?'
We have started looking at plants and growing our own broad beans. It would be great if the children had an opportunity to grow their own plant at home. They could keep a diary where they can draw, measure and write about any changes they see. They could send in pictures of their plants so I can see their hard work!
Here is a handy link for planting!
English/Geography (Week 1 and 2)
We need to find out about and do some research on the 4 countries of the UK. There is a worksheet that can be coloured in to identify each country which also needs to be labelled. Also, there is a written task where the children need to explain which country they would like to visit and why (other than England). Please encourage children to use the handwriting guide I have supplied as well as sentences rules like; finger spaces, capital letters, full stops and correct spelling where possible.
Below, I have attached some capacity worksheets for using measuring language, sorting and comparing capacity. Here is a link to a capacity game the children might enjoy.
Spelling and reading words
Here are some real and alien words using our next sound (a_e) which the children will need to read.
