► THURSDAY'S TIMETABLE
Good morning Year 1
I hope you all had a fabulous day yesterday and managed to complete some super work with your grown-ups. Your Maths challenges are blowing me away, it is lovely to see how much you are pushing yourselves and challenging yourselves whilst at home! Keep up the great work!
► MORNING WORK
In the video below Miss Martin and George are talking you through a phonics lesson just like the ones we have in school. In the video Miss Martin and George will introduce you to a new phase 5 sound each day and re-cap the phase 3 and 4 flashcards. For the lesson you will need either a whiteboard and pen or a piece of paper an a pen or pencil. Enjoy!
This term we are going to be looking at special books. In today's lesson we are going to be looking in more detail at the special book for Hindu people.
Miss Martin has made a video talking through the presentation if you would like to watch that instead of reading it through with your grown-up. However, if you don't want to watch this you can look through the presentation below and complete the worksheet, remember to save it to show Miss Martin later.
Usually on a Thursday morning you would have PE with Mr Revan, so today we are going to be doing some PE at home. In school you would be moving on to invasion games (Basketball, football etc). Today we are going to be looking at a very basic but great football skill to have: Dribbling.
Aim: Using 1 foot only, take small touches and keep the ball close, working the ball in a zig-zag pattern.
Step 1: THE INSIDE TOUCH - Bring your non-kicking foot behind the ball and slightly to the side. The inside of the kicking foot contacts the side of the ball, halfway up the ball and taps it towards the other side
Step 2: After every touch your kicking-foot lands on the floor
Step 3: After the inside touch: as the ball is moving across your body the non-kicking foot steps out to help you balance and to push off in other direction
Step 4: THE OUTSIDE TOUCH - Bring the kicking-foot around the back of the ball use the outside of your foot to contact the side of the ball, halfway up it and touch the ball out, away from your body Avoid these common mistakes: A common mistake is to take large touches and go straight forward. Try to take small touches side to side. Start slow and see how fast you can go.
WORK BOTH FEET - Every 10 seconds switch feet so that you are developing both sides and you get comfortable on your left and right foot
In English today, we are going to be thinking about our own acrostic poems. Yesterday we looked again to refresh our brains at what an acrostic poem is and how we can write one, you also jotted down some ideas about what you could include in your own acrstic poem about TRANSORT. Today Miss Martin will talk you through writing an acrostic all about TRANSPORT and then you can have a go yourself using the ideas you jotted down yesterday. There are a few templates below for an acrostic poem (including the one Miss Martin uses) or you can simply write your own, it is entirely up to you.
BLUE WORK - back 1 step challenge
GREEN WORK - regular challenge
PURPLE WORK - forward 1 step challenge
These levels of differentiation, for some pieces of learning, will ensure that your child can access teaching and learning that is pitched correctly for them. If you are not sure which colour to do then please email Miss Martin to check.
