Message to all parents – applicable to children both in school and at home. Please see below:

** SpellingsPlease practise spellings throughout the week, ready for a test each Friday. For those children in school on a Friday, we will do their tests in school for now; please make sure they practise through the week at home so they are well-prepared for Friday!

🤞 Hope last week’s tests went ok! 🤞

** Reading – The children have come such a long way with their reading since the start of Year 1 – we are so proud! Please could you continue to read every day at home using Oxford Owl to supplement your own books; it really does pay off! 🙂

💫💫💫 Many thanks! 💫💫💫

The timetable below is the one that the children will be following in school but for those of you at home, please do not feel you have to stick to these timings – feel free to do what you want, whenever best suits you and your family. Also, do not worry if you do not have a printer or if you cannot get everything done.

Yes, we are keen that the children continue to make progress with their learning, but life at the moment is stressful enough so it is equally important that the children (and yourselves) remain as happy and as stress-free as possible in these difficult times. 🥰

Maths: Addition and Subtraction (within 20)

Topics this week: Great Fire of London (history) / Materials (science) /Algorithms (computing) / Printing (art)

 

Monday 25th January

English: Today we continue with our recounts / diaries topic. Can you remember what a recount is? How about what a diary is? (Recount = retelling – in order – what has happened; Diary = a written record of thoughts, feelings and events – it is usually handwritten).The focus this week will again be The Magic Paintbrush, which should set us up nicely for next week’s work on the diary of Samuel Pepys.

Lesson 5 – to retrieve information – In this lesson, we will learn how to retrieve (find and take)  information from a text (Cedric’s diary).

Play the video and follow the instructions.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-retrieve-information-c4tp4d

Pause as instructed. Skip on / rewind if you need to do.

Let’s practise reading this unit’s tricky words:

my

today were was
so me I

of

When you get to the (just before 3:00mins), click on the Tricky.words.PowerPoint.Mon and follow the instructions. Each spelling group will focus on their own set of words.

Once you have written (and checked / corrected) your spellings, resume the lesson. As Mrs. Howley reads the text, you can follow along with her, or if you feel confident, you can mute her and read it at your own pace.

When it comes to the questions, pause the video as instructed and write the answers in your book. Remember, your answers might not be exactly the same as Mrs. Howley’s … that’s ok! 🙂

Handy hints:

  • Use our Y1 Writing Checklist to help you write your sentences.
  • Read this copy of Cedric’s Diary to help you answer the questions … it will save you keep rewinding the video clip.

Task – your task today is to draw and write about Cedric’s Day. Please record your answers like this: Cedric’s Day. You can write on the sheet if you have a printer or in your book if you don’t.

Maths:

Today we  are looking at subtraction within 20 , but not crossing 10. The video is the third one subtraction not crossing 10.

The second part of the activity sheet is easier if you use a number line (make one at home from 1 -20 or use a ruler), or use a ten frame and cross out as question 1. 10 Frame Template

The video and warm up is here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/spring-week-3/

The tasks are here for you to try as many  as you can. 25.1.21 Mon

Art (Printing): Today our printing is linked to our Great Fire of London topic. You will need to do this over 2 sessions because the first part (fiery background) will need to dry before we can stick on the second part houses). We are going to recreate Pudding Lane ablaze in 1666!

  1. First, you need to print a fiery background. You will need fiery coloured paint or ink – reds, oranges, yellows etc. Then choose what you would like to print with – your hands, sponges, bubble wrap, potatoes cut in half etc. Make sure you mix your colours so the background looks as fiery as possible.

  1. Next, once your printing is dry, it is now time to sketch – on some plain white paper, carefully sketch some houses from 1666 like these: Examples Of Houses 1666 remember that the houses were close together (no gaps!). Don’t make them too small – they need to be about as tall as your fingers! You can sketch houses one by one or you can do them as a row of houses. Once you have finished sketching, remember to cut round the roofs carefully. If you wish, you can use felt tip or wax crayon to go over the outline of your houses for added effect.
  2. Now it is time to put the two pieces together … Stick your houses onto the bottom of your fiery backdrop so that it now looks like a street. How does it look? See Tapestry for examples.

Y1 Writing Checklist

Toolkit For Writing In A Diary.Tues – your own completed version will be even better 🙂

Task – Today you are going to start to write the first part of Ma Liang’s diary (introduction / Event 1) – Diary Writing Guide.Weds. It will help you if you read through Mrs. Howley’s Example1 First Part Of Ma Liang’s Diary.Weds before you start.

How / where to write your diary … here are some ideas:

✍️ Do you have a special notebook at home? If you do, you might want to write in that … OR …

✍️ You might have some special paper that you choose to write on … OR …

✍️ You can write your diary entries in your blue book. **Remember that you will need this piece of writing to carry on for the next 3 days so you will need to leave enough room in your book** … maybe 2 pages, depending upon the size of your writing?? … OR …

✍️ If you want, you can take the double middle page out of your blue book to do your diary writing instead. That’s what we’re going to do in school – we’re going to write on the middle pages and then close it like a book so it looks like a proper diary. We’re then going to decorate our front covers to make them look more like a diary.

     

Handy hints:

  • Start your diary entry with Dear Diary.
  • Your first sentence will need to start on the next line.
  • Remember you are Ma Liang, so you will need to use I, me, we.
  • Use your checklists from earlier in the week to help you to organise your ideas..
  • Think it! Write it! Read it back!
  • This week’s work is to last 3 days so make sure you leave yourself enough room to complete your writing.
  • Enjoy! ✍️ 🙂 ✍️

History: Today we’re going back in time again to 1666 to find out more about The Great Fire of London. Today we will be playing the Great Fire of London game to help us with our learning. It teaches us facts about the fire but it’s also fun to play! (see below)

Here is today’s key question: How did people try to put the fire out? To get you thinking about this, have a go at completing the Firefighters Then And Now. 21 activity. No need to cut and stick – just talk through your ideas with an adult.

Task 1 – Now it’s time to play the game! 🙂 http://www.fireoflondon.org.uk/game/

Follow the instructions; if you click on the parts that flash, they give you extra information. Please play the game up to and including Tuesday 4th September … don’t worry, we’ll save Wednesday 5th September onwards for another day. Handy hint – Don’t try to skip ahead … make sure you follow the lady’s instructions about when to move on – if you do follow her instructions, you should get to ‘have a go’ at putting the fire out! 🔥💦🔥

Task 2 – To finish, it’s Quiz Time! You should now be Great Fire experts … spend a few minutes with a grown-up playing the GreatFireQuiz. If you have a printer, you can print the sheet and tick the answers; if you don’t, just write 1 to 8 in your book, followed by true or false for each clue. Can you get them all right? I bet you can!!! 🤞😀🤞

Today we are going to look at a video from Letters and Sounds again. Today it is all about adjacent consonants and short vowels again. The pace is slow but the video is useful in showing how we teach counting phonemes/sounds in words by segmenting eg. b-e-n-ch  is 4 phonemes/sounds when we split the word up(segment sounds) and then we blend to read eg. bench. Eventually your child will become confident in just looking at the word and saying it from sight. Until then looking for the different sounds in words is crucial when learning to read with speed and fluency.

Maths: Addition and Subtraction (within 20)

Topics this week: Great Fire of London (history) / Materials (science) /Algorithms (computing)

 

Monday 18th January

English:

Today we are starting another new topic – recounts / diaries. Do you know what a recount is? Do you know what a diary is? (Recount = retelling – in order – what has happened; Diary = a written record of thoughts, feelings and events – it is usually handwritten).

The focus of our recount / diary work for the next two weeks is the story of The Magic Paintbrush, which is another traditional tale. This work should lead us nicely to the last week of the half-term, when we will be looking at the diary of Samuel Pepys.

Some of you might already know the story of The Magic Paintbrush, others might not. It is a story based on a Chinese folk tale. It shows that goodness and kindness are rewarded over greed.

To familiarise yourself with the story, here is a beautiful animated version for you to watch:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iy2TUvycfeg

Your task today is to find out more about the story. Please record your ideas like this: The Magic Paintbrush.background You will need to look at a world map for question 4 – first find us (UK), then find the place where the story is set. Have a look on a globe if you’ve got one – or you can use this map: WorldMap.

Warm-up This is part of the White Rose Home Learning Video.

Addition and Subtraction within 20 – Today we are looking at the video about adding by counting on (the second video)

Please find the link to the learning today here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/spring-week-2-number-addition-and-subtraction-within-20/

The warm up is also part of the learning on the video clip.

When the video pauses you will need to complete the sections on the worksheet which is here.   Y1 Spring Block 1 WO1 Add By Counting On 2019  

Do as many questions as you can. As you can see question 3 is the most challenging, but I’m sure most children would like to give it a try!

Answers can be written on the sheets if you can print them off or written in your books.

Helpful Tips : As you can see number lines and ten frames are a popular resource that the children use and are familiar with.

History / Art (Sketching):

Today’s key question:

 🔥 Who was Samuel Pepys and why was he important?

Today we are going to find out all about Samuel Pepys, who was famous for keeping a diary – he wrote in his diary about what happened during the Great Fire of London in 1666.

First, watch the episode of Magic Grandad … we will go back in time and ‘meet’ Samuel Pepys!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&feature=share&v=VarSSAwiimU

Now, complete today’s task – a sketch of Samuel Pepys.  Here are some  Pepys Images to help you. Please think carefully about these key questions:

🔥 What did he look like?

🔥 How do we know he lived a long time ago?

🔥 Why do you think there are no photographs of him?

Choose one of the sketches / paintings to copy … remember, you should take your time and sketch lightly (tickling the paper!). Make sure your sketch fills the page. You can sketch on here Pepys.border, on a plain piece of paper, or even in your book. Looking forward to seeing your sketches!!!

  😊  Enjoy your daily reading too – maybe complete one of your Spring reading challenges today? 😊

Answers can be written on the sheets if you can print them off or written in your books.

Helpful Tips : With addition we know that it doesn’t matter which way round the numbers are in the calculation sentence (commutative law), so always start with the biggest number first. It is so much easier! Eg. 2 + 16 = 18  is the same as or equal to….   16+ 2 = 18

Warm-up This is part of the White Rose Home Learning Video.

Addition and Subtraction within 20 – Today we are looking at the video about adding ones using number bonds part two (the fourth video.)

This will be the second part of the worksheet from yesterday.

Please find the link to the learning today here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/spring-week-2-number-addition-and-subtraction-within-20/

The warm up is also part of the learning on the video clip.

When the video pauses you will need to complete the sections on the worksheet which is here.   Y1 Spring Block 1 WO Add Ones Using Number Bonds 2020 (1) Weds

Do as many questions as you can. As you can see questions 5 and 6 are the most challenging, because they have missing numbers.

Answers can be written on the sheets if you can print them off or written in your books.

Helpful Tips : With addition we know that it doesn’t matter which way round the numbers are in the calculation sentence (commutative law), so always start with the biggest number first. It is so much easier! Eg. 2 + 16 = 18  is the same as or equal to….   16+ 2 = 18

 

History / Computing: Think back to Monday’s lesson about Samuel Pepys. What can you remember about him? On the night the Great Fire broke out, what might he have seen from his window? What might he have written in his diary? Use PurpleMash (2Do) to create a picture of what Samuel might have seen – please draw buildings as well as flames.

Your instructions are as follows: PurpleMash.Samuel.Pepys

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-deepen-understanding-of-a-recount-through-roleplay-cgv38c

Task (1) – at 3:08 in the lesson you will be reminded of this week’s tricky words. Put some of the tricky words into sentences. No need to write them down; instead, say your sentences out loud to a partner or a grown-up. Remember to say capital letter when you start and full stop as you end each sentence.

Task (2) – at 3:47 in the lesson you will be asked to come up with some questions to ask Ma Liang. Make a list of questions you might like to ask:

Kippers – 1 question

Chips – 2 questions

Biffs – 3 questions

Say each question first, then write them down carefully. Remember to start with a capital letter (H, W, T etc.) and end with a question mark (?). Don’t forget your finger spaces and lovely letters too! 🙂

Task (3) – at 7:10 in the lesson you will be asked to sit in the ‘hot seat’ and pretend you are Ma Liang! Again, dress up if that helps you. Ask a grown-up or a partner to ask you (Ma Liang) questions. Think carefully about your answers; say them out loud, no need to write anything down!

Riddle – can you solve Mrs. Howley’s riddle, ready for the next lesson?

Friday 22nd. January

English:** We continue with our Oak National Academy English lessons. Please pause the lessons whenever it suits you best. It’s also best to watch the lessons with no subtitles.** 

During today’s lesson, you will be learning about the past tense. The past tense is when something has already happened. e.g. I liked my breakfast this morning. I went to the shop. I had a yummy breakfast. I felt poorly yesterday .To help you with this, have a look at these PastTense.verb.examples first.

Lesson 4 – To use the past tense – In this lesson, we will practise writing in the past tense which will help us to recount events later in this unit.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-use-the-past-tense-69k30d

Task – complete the Past Tense Verb Sorting Activity. Don’t worry if you don’t have a printer; just write the matching pairs in your book. Remember to put the headers Past / Present at the top of the page.

Today we are going to look at a video from Letters and Sounds again. Today it is all about adjacent consonants and short vowels. The pace is slow but the video is useful in showing how we teach counting phonemes/sounds in words by segmenting eg. b-e-n-ch  is 4 phonemes/sounds when we split the word up(segment sounds) and then we blend to read eg. bench. Eventually your child will become confident in just looking at the word and saying it from sight. Until then looking for the different sounds in words is crucial when learning to read with speed and fluency.

Maths

All children will be exposed to maths every day, through a range of practical and real life activities. The children will continue to work on their number recognition and counting skills.

We are currently having a big ‘push’ on number formation. It really is so important that the children can form their numbers correctly. Please could you take some time to practise these at home with your child? 

This term we will be focusing on the 4 main number operations. The children will have many opportunities to use practical equipment to support them with their learning and will also begin to record their calculations and discuss new strategies that could be used to solve problems, find solutions and reach answers. 

Lots of our work will be investigative. We encourage you to practise maths skills at home with your child. Look for numbers around the house, count the stairs, help pay for items in the shop… maths is everywhere!

English

Year 1 is such an important time in your child’s learning journey, in that they are still learning how to read and write.

Reading and phonics are key pieces of the Year 1 learning jigsaw. For children to reach their full potential, it is so important that they read at home as well as in school. Could we ask that you try to listen to your child read for around 5-10 minutes each night if possible? Please continue to read books from home as well as school books. 

If you haven’t already checked out Oxford Owl, please take a look! It is a lovely resource which has a library full of e-books relating to the Oxford Reading Tree scheme. Class login details are at the front of your child’s reading record book. These ebooks can be used to supplement home reading should you wish to use them.

Useful reading-related information:

Spring Reading Challenge Minis

Phonics is at the heart of all of our English learning in Year 1 – we need phonics to help us read and spell. As such, our daily small-group phonics sessions are an important part of our day. In Years 1 and 2 we use the Letters and Sounds programme in conjunction with Phonics Play for our daily phonics sessions.

The aim is to make phonics fun so we play games and sing songs to help us with our phonics learning. Please see top of this page for further details.

In Year 1 we aim for all children to become confident and independent writers. To achieve this we have a big focus on correct letter formation as well as phonics.

We choose texts and topics carefully to engage the children and make writing both purposeful and fun. 

                 

This term we will look at several well-known stories and traditional tales with repetitive patterns and phrases.

Throughout the term the children will be supported to speak and then write in complete sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

Your class teachers are Miss Platt and Mrs Tetlow. 

Mrs Leavy, Mrs Kulczycki and Miss Ewbank will also be working in Year One, supporting the children with their learning. 

Your child should have brought home a parental information pack back in September. It gives you an idea of what Year 1 is all about! We hope you find it useful. If you have any questions about any aspects of your child’s school life, please do come and ask.

The Year 1 Team

 

Important everyday information:

BOOK BAGS – Could we ask that your child brings his/her book bag to school every day?

UNIFORM – Please could you make sure your child’s belongings are clearly labelled – especially kits, jumpers / cardigans, shoes and coats.

PE/GAMES KIT – For now, children need an outdoor games kit (jogging bottoms / leggings, hoodie / sweatshirt plus trainers). Kits need to come into school on a Monday please, and will come home again on a Friday for washing. It is *really important* that children have the correct kits in school; if not, they will unfortunately not be able to take part in games lessons.

HOMEWORK – General homework (green folder) and spellings homework (red folder) are usually given out on Tuesdays, ready to be handed in the following Monday. Weekly spellings have not yet come home – please look out for these coming home in a couple of weeks. Please could we ask that red and green folders are both kept in your child’s book bag, ready to be handed in on a Monday morning? 

🙂 Many thanks for your co-operation! 🙂
