Good Morning Year 1 I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and have recharged your brains ready for another busy week of home learning. This week is week 2 of our home learning (it's going so fast!) and I want you all to continue to work hard at home for your grown-ups. The updates I have received from you all so far have gone in a super picture gallery so look out for your pictures there! I have just set up a new gallery for all your fabulous learning in week 2 so make sure we fill it up by sending lots of picture updates! Keep up the amazing work, I am proud to be your teacher and now your grown-ups can see why as you are showing them how hard you work and how beautiful your work is! Always remember we are the best Year 1 class in the world!
Phonics: In your phonics buster books complete pages 6 and 7. You can listen to Miss Martin's audio clips as she reads out what to do and then talks through the answers so you can self mark them.
There are some great interactive games on the phonics play website for children to play and revise their phonetic skills. Currently, the website is free for parents to sign up to if you log in using the user name: march 20 and the password: home. I am pleased that so many of you in your email updates have been saying you have been accessing the phonics play website, well done!
English: From your blue English pack please complete pages 3 and 4 on capital letters to start sentences. Miss Martin has recorded a voice clip reading through the pages (where the dog wakes up halfway through and you can hear her yawn! haha!) so you know what to do. She has also recorded the answers so you can self mark your amazing work too. There is also a short youtube video to watch before beginning the work to refresh our brains about capital letters and sentences.
Maths: Around your house or garden find 5 objects and put them into height order. Discuss your learning with your grown-ups using language such as taller than, shorter than, bigger, smaller, greater. You could order them any ways you like for example from biggest to smallest or from shortest to tallest. Here is a picture of some numicon that I found in school and put in height order from smallest to biggest and some example sentences to show you what to do.
The orange numicon is smaller than the Lilac numicon. The blue numicon is taller than the pink numicon. The green numicon is shorter than the pink numicon but taller than the lilac numicon.
Topic (Science): In your white science booklet please complete page 2 (name the animal). If you want to colour the animals in when you have finished the work please do as it will make it brighter. Miss Martin has recorded a voice clip explaining the task and the answers so you can self mark your own work.
Reading: Make sure you read a book today or have a grown-up read you a story. If you have read all your reading books from school, you can read some of the phonetically decodable comics online.These can be found at www.phonicsplaycomics.co.uk. Also David Walliams (A well known childrens author) has given you the opportunity every day to reveice a short audio book from his collection of short stories from his book 'The World’s Worst Children!' You can access these at : https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/
Try and remember to record all of your reading in your diary so that we can see how much reading you have done when we come back to school. I can't wait to see how much reading you have done at home!
