    Good Morning,

     

    Hope you’re all well and have enjoyed the weekend. This week we will be carrying on with the resources in your pack.

     

    Please see below today’s learning. 

     

    Maths – 3D shapes

     

    -Review the 2d shapes from last week. Can you remember the names of these common 2d shapes? 

    In year 1, the children need to name and recognise some common 3d shapes too cone, cube, cuboid, cylinder, pyramid and sphere. 

    -Look at / print these posters to see what they look like-   https://content.twinkl.co.uk/resource/5b/53/T-N-008-3D-Shape-Posters.pdf?__token__=exp=1585550730~acl=%2Fresource%2F5b%2F53%2FT-N-008-3D-Shape-Posters.pdf%2A~hmac=05406523b204cf8bb3fbb9824816ad21f7c5ed64fa5fc27a14a2d1f57cf4dfd0

    -Once you feel confident with the names, look at the attached powerpoint. 

    -Look in your pack and you will see 3 pages of 3D colouring. Use the key at the side to colour in the shapes in the correct colour. 

    -For an extra challenge, name and label the 3d shapes on the drawing. 

     

    English – Hansel and Gretel

     

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

    -Read the beginning  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 beginning 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  mum, one, them, do, me, down, dad, big, when, it’s. 

     

    -Try out some phonics games and explore Letter Join.

    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.  

    -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  some, not, then, were, go, little, as, no, saw, make. You may want to write these words into your own sentences.

    Published 26/03/20, by Kate Butler

    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, 

     

    Miss Butler

    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,
