TaskKs1 Maths 1

PhonicsFocus: revision (Phases 3 and 5) Play the flashcards speed trials game on Phonics Play. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/flashcards-speed-trials Play the Phase 5A game first, then play Phases 3 & 5A to recap your Phase 3 phonemes too.

Reading: Once a week we will ask you to choose a book from this list – Recommended Books for Year 1. Choose a book that takes your fancy! If you have a copy of the book you can read that; if not, ask an adult to google the book for you and read an online version instead if there is one. https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/reading-lists-for-ks1-school-pupils/suggested-reading-list-year-1-pupils-ks1-age-5-6/

Geography: What is a compass and what does it do? 

Today you are going to make your own compass. You can use this Make A Compass Template if you wish. These Compass Points posters (pages 1-2 only) should help with labelling. Don’t worry if you don’t have a printer, just draw around something round or use a paper plate if you have one. Please label your compass points carefully – 1. North, South, East, West …. Then have a go at 2. North-West, North-East, South-West and South-East. You can write your own labels or you can use these Compass Labels  if you have a printer. If you don’t have a split pin to attach your needle, a small blob of blu tac should do the trick! If your grown-up has an iPhone, you could also try using the compass on there.
