    Hello everyone :) 

     

    Hope you are all keeping well.

     

    I can see that some of you have gone onto the school gateway app and given your consent for the Nessy programme. If you have, the secret password is acousticjazz. All you need to do is go onto the internet, type in Nessy, put in the secret password and type in your child’s name. If you haven’t given consent your child’s account will not be open. 

     

    Below is the work that I would like you to complete today. 

     

    Maths 

     

    Today we will be using the final sheets in your pack titled ‘Solving word problems’. There should be two parts to this. These questions require you to read them carefully. Think ‘what is it actually asking me to do? How will I solve this word problem?’

    In some of these problems, the object has not been placed on the 0cm. It is really important that you emphasise that when measuring in cm using a ruler or tape measure, you always make sure that the start of the object lines with 0. 

    These word problems make you think a little bit harder! Some of these ask you how long something is but start at a number other than 0cm. 

    1. What is the start number?
    2. What is the finish number?
    3. What is the ‘difference’? Count from start to finish number to see how long it is. 

     

    For example, the first lollipop starts at 2cm and finishes at 8cm. The object is therefore 6cm long. 

     

    English 

     

     Yesterday you will have drawn a story map which shows what happens in the important parts of your story. Hopefully your story map should look abit like mine and you have between 6-8 pictures which help you to retell what happens in your book. 

    Today I would like you to have a go at retelling the story out aloud to someone in your house using your story map. You may want to come up with some actions together that will help you remember each part of the story. 

    Once you feel confident retelling this story out aloud, I would like you to have a go at writing your story using a sentence for each picture on your map.                      

     

    It would be lovely if you could record yourself retelling the story or if you could send through your completed story map and story once you have finished. 

     

    -High frequency words- Practice reading and writing the next 10 high frequency words e.g by, day, made, time, I’m, if, help, Mrs, called, here. Think of some sentences to put these words into. 

     

    -Try out some phonics games and explore Letter Join. 

     

     

    Reading 

     

    -Re-read the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ together. Turn over and answer the questions on the back.  

    -Tune in to our school YouTube channel ‘Dunkirk Primary School’ at 3 to see our guest speaker ‘Mr Parry’ tell the KS1 story today. 

    -Read some books from home and explore the Nessy programme. 

     

    Please look out for a very exciting email and YouTube clip which will be coming to you very soon explaining what we would like you to do over the Easter holidays. I hope as many of you as possible can be involved and I look forward to seeing what you do! 

     

     I hope you all have a wonderful day and a relaxing weekend.

    Published 02/04/20, by Kate Butler

    Hi everyone, 

     

    Here is the work for today. 

     

    Maths -Today we are looking at 3 sheets from your maths pack.

     

    The first 2 sheets are about ‘Non- standards units of measure 2. They ask you to find out how long an object is using non standard units of measure e.g. cubes. 

    Top questions- 

    Where does the first cube/ step start? Why is that important?

    How many more would it take to go to …?

    Which is longer/ shorter? How do you know?

     

    The third sheet uses a ruler to measure the length of objects in cm (centimetres). 

    Top questions- 

    Where does the object start on the ruler? (0cm)

    Why is that important to start at 0cm each time?

    When I have placed the object against 0cm, where do I look to see how long the object is? 

     

    Challenge- 

    1. If you have cubes/lego in your house, use these to measure the length of different objects in your house. Make sure that the first piece starts at the very end of the object and you count how many it takes to get to the end.. 
    2. If you have a ruler in your house (you can also print them off the internet), have a go at measuring objects in your house using cm. Again, make sure that your object starts at 0cm and you read along to find the measurement. 

     

     

    English 

     

    Today I would like you to choose one of your favourite books. If you don’t have any at home, look online and you can sign up to different websites to read e-books. Once you have chosen one, I would like you to read through that book together. Talk about what happens as you go through. 

    I would like you to draw a story map today which shows what happens at the important parts of the story. (choose between 6-8 parts). Draw pictures to help you remember each part of the story and use arrows to show the order that they happen in. These pictures could be simple symbols as long as they help you remember what happens.  

                        

    Tomorrow we will write this up! You just need to draw the story map today. 

     

    -High frequency words-  Practice reading and writing the next 10 high frequency words e.g about, got, their, people, your, put, could, house, old, too. Think of some sentences to put these words into. 

     

    -Try out some phonics games and explore Letter Join. 

     

     

    Reading 

     

    -Read the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ together. 

    -Tune in to our school YouTube channel ‘Dunkirk Primary School’ at 3 to see Miss Holly read the KS1 story today. 

    -Read some books from home. 

    We also have been lucky enough to get an online subscription for a programme called ‘Nessy’.  Nessy is an online programme which is designed to help children of all abilities learn to read, write, spell and type.  If you would like a password for this programme, I do require parental permission so please look on the school gateway app. Once you have given consent, your child’s account will be unlocked. J

     

    Hope you all have a wonderful day.

    Good Morning, 

     

    Hope you are all having a good week so far. Here is the work for the day. 

     

    Maths – Comparing lengths and heights sheet (3 sheets)

     

    Today you will first need to talk about what these key words mean ‘taller’, ‘shorter’’ and ‘longer’. You may want to do this by comparing some of the objects in your home. For example ‘which is longer, the bag or the rug?’ ‘which is taller the sofa or the door?. 

    -You may also want to discuss what ‘tallest’, ‘shortest’ or ‘longest’ means when you compare more than 2 objects.  

    -Top tip 1= we use taller when we are describing the height of something (how tall) and we use longer when we are describing the length of something (how long). We can use shorter for both! 

    -You may need to remind your child that when we are measuring we need to make sure that we start at the same point. The bottom of each object needs to be lined up carefully and need to start at the same place otherwise we wont be accurate. 

    -When you finish the sheets you may want to play a game called ‘Can you find..’. See below for ideas.

    -Play this interactive game - https://www.iknowit.com/lessons/k-measurement-longer-taller-shorter.html

     

     

    Can you find something longer than your finger?

    Can you find something shorter than a fork?

    Can you find something taller than a chair?

    Can you find something longer than a pencil?

    Can you find something shorter than a picture?

    Can you find something taller than a doll?

    Can you find something longer than a piece of lego?

    Can you find something shorter than you?

    Can you find something taller than a table?

    Can you find something longer than a leaf?

    Can you find something shorter than your door?

    Can you find something taller than you! 

     

    English  

     

    -Today we are thinking about the ending of the story of ‘Hansel and Gretel’. Please look in your pack for the ending ..sheet which includes pictures of the end of this story only. 

    -Read the end  of the story (I have written it in red) together using the pictures to follow the story and to help you remember each sentence.  

    -Think of some actions to alongside each picture. 

    - Can you retell this part of the story together? Use your actions and pictures to help! 

    Once you are confident with retelling the sentences aloud, write the end of the story on the lines underneath.

    Don’t forget your capital letters and full stops.

     

    -High frequency words-  Practice reading and writing the next 10 high frequency words e.g  children, him, Mr, off, asked, get, just, now, came, oh. Think of some sentences to put these words into. 

     

    -Try out some phonics games and explore Letter Join. 

     

     

    Reading 

    -Read the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ together. Turn over and see if you can answer any of the questions together. 

    -Tune in to our school YouTube channel ‘Dunkirk Primary School’ at 3 to see Mr Cook  read the KS1 story today. 

    -Read some books from home. 

     

    Have a lovely day and don’t forget to tune into YouTube to do a PE session with Pete Wicks at 9. 

     

    Take care,

    Hope you are all well. Here is today’s work.

     

    Maths

     

    In year 1 you need to be able to recognise and names some common 2D shapes. This includes rectangles, squares, circles and triangles. I’d also like you to look at pentagons, hexagons and octagons for a challenge.

    -Start by looking at the attached powerpoint. This explains the properties of these 2d shapes. 

    -Also look at this videos to find out more-https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjv39j6/articles/ztpwdmn and https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zh26sbk

    -In your pack there are 5 sheets of 2D colouring. Can you colour the shapes to complete the picture? Use the colour key to help you .You may also want to write the name of the shape next to each one. 

     

    English (please see the video attached) 

     

    -Today we are thinking about the end of the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. Please look in your pack for the ending ..sheet which includes pictures of the end of this story only. 

    -Read the ending of the story (I have written it in red) together using the pictures to follow the story and to help you remember each sentence.

    Good Morning, 

     

    It looks like it is going to be another sunny day outside today. Thank you again to everyone who has been in touch. 

    Please see today’s work below. 

     

    Maths 

     

    Before you start today’s work, recap number bonds to 10 with someone in your family. 

    Maybe revisit a quick game for 10 mins to make sure that you are confident before moving on. 

    Number Bonds to 20 sheet -  – Today we are thinking about those numbers that add together to make 20. 

    You may want to start by using 20 objects in your house (it could be anything!)  to help you but then I’d like you to practice using some quick recall games. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

     

    -You could also play a game like fastest finger first. The adult calls out a number and then you have to find the number that matches. The numbers match when they add together to make 20. For example, the adult shouts out 5 and you put your finger on 15 because 5+ 15 = 20. 

     

    Text Box:  6          1          5             4      

12        14         9             8 

18         3          11            13

2           7          17            10 

16        19        20            15        0

     

    -Have a go at writing out all of the number sentences in an order- what do you notice happens with the numbers? Can you see any links with the number bonds to 10?

    e.g.

    1 + 19 = 20          1+ 9 = 10

    2 + 18 = 20          2 + 8= 10 

    3 + 17 = 20           3 + 7 = 10

     

     

    English (please see attached the video) 

     

    Today we are thinking about the middle of the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. Please look in your pack for the middle ..sheet which includes pictures of the middle of this story only. 

    -Read the middle of the story (I have written it in red) together using the pictures to follow the story and to help you remember each sentence.  

    -Think of some actions to alongside each picture. 

    - Can you retell this part of the story together? Use your actions and pictures to help! 

    Once you are confident with retelling the sentences aloud, write the middle of the story on the lines underneath.

     

    High frequency words-  Practice reading and writing the next 10 high frequency words e.g my, her, what, there, out, this, have, went, be, like. You may want to write these words into your own sentences. 

     

    -Try out some phonics games and explore Letter Join. 

     

    Reading 

     

    Re-read the story of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. Turn over and see if you can answer the questions. 

     

    -Tune into our YouTube channel at 3 to see Miss Holly read the KS1 story.

     

    -I am just in the process of looking at websites that provide banded e-books for KS1 children so the children can choose their colour and carry on reading as normal. There are lots of websites to choose from but once we have found a really good one I will send over a link. 

     

    Have a lovely day everyone,

    Good Morning, 

     

    Hope you are all well and spending time with your family at home. 

     

    Here are today’s learning tasks. 

     

    Maths

     

    Practice your 2x, 5x, 10x table – you may want to colour these in different colours on your 100 grid to see the patterns. E.g. the 10 times table is down the side in one column.  

    Once you’ve coloured you may need to use the grid to help you with the below- 

    -Choose one times table at a time and start by chanting these together e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10. 

    -Play the missing number game. Chant out 2, 4, and then clap on a missing number. You have to guess which number in the times table has been missed. 

    -As you get confident change the starting number, it doesn’t always have to be 0. E.g. 6, 8, 10, clap – What number is next?

    - Challenge – some of you may want to jump backwards in 2’s, 5’s 10’s but only do this if you’re confident! E.g. 100, 90, 80, 70, 60   

     

    Number formation sheet – 

    Look inside your pack and you will find a tracing sheet for numbers.

    Make sure you start and end in the correct place so that your numbers are facing the correct way. Once you’ve had a go, cover over all the numbers and spend time making sure that these are formed correctly.

     

     

    English 

     

    Find the ‘Is it a Question’ sheet. 

    Talk together about what a question is (it is when you’re asking something). Read each sentence together and decide which of them is asking something and needs a question mark. If it is a question put a question mark at the end, if it is not a question put a full stop.

     

    High frequency words-  

    Practice reading and writing the next 10 high frequency words e.g was, you, they, on, she, is, for, at, his, but. You may want to write these words into your own sentences. 

     

    -Try out some phonics games and explore Letter Join. 

     

    Reading 

     

    -Re-read the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and turn over onto the back to answer some questions about the story. 

     

    -Today is my turn to read at KS1 story time so I will upload the video of my chosen story ‘Peace at Last’ at around 3pm. Hope you can go to our YouTube channel to watch.

     

    Please keep sending in pictures of the wonderful learning that you are doing at home. When you do, please let me know whether you are happy for this to go on our class page.  I am just about to update the school website this morning so go and visit to see your work being celebrated J

     

    To keep yourself active go to YouTube and type in ‘The Body Coach TV’ where Joe Wicks will be streaming a live P.E  workout daily from 9am! I am going to be joining in with it this morning too! 

     

    Any questions please feel free to reply to my email. 

     

    Speak to you again soon,
