Good Morning Year 1
I hope you all had a fabulous day yesterday and managed to complete some super work with your grown-ups. I just wanted to mention, your acrostic poems from yesterday were fabulous! They were very creative and I enjoyed reading them.
Yesterday, George and Lola had a very busy day. They started their morning off by wishing Kyan a very happy 6th Birthday, then they looked through all of your pictures in last weeks Year 1 gallery. After lunch, Lola enjoyed a lovely walk in the sunshine and to end the day she had a lovely snooze in her bed with one of her favourite toys 'Mr tiger'.

English: Today, we are going to carry on oiur learing about acrostic poems, Yesterday you looked through a presentation talking you through the key features of an acrostic poem and wrote one about your name. Today keeping in line with your previous learning about the 'tiny seed' and the seasons I would like you to choose two of the seasons and write an acrostic poem for them. Below are some templates you can print if you would like to write your poem on there, or you can copy them in to your yellow books.
Here are a few examples of seasons acrostic poems. Click on them to make them bigger so you can read them easier.
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 children's author) has given you the opportunity every day to receive a short audiobook from his collection of short stories from his book 'The World’s Worst Children!' You can access these at: https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/
New stories are available after 11 am every day, or you can listen to ones from the day before if you wish.
If David Walliams is not to your taste, another super children's author Oliver Jeffers is also reading his books live on Instagram every day. However, if you do not have access to Instagram his previously read stories and videos can be found on his website. https://www.oliverjeffers.com/abookaday
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! I hear a lot of you are reading a lot at home so keep it up!
Maths starter: Today for our maths starter I would like you to watch the following video all about fractions and how they are parts of a whole. It has a very catchy tune, so please sing along once you know the words
Maths: Today, we are going to be looking at quarters in more detail. To help with your understanding I would like you to watch this White Rose maths video about quarters and then complete the worksheets below. You can either print them off if you want to or work out the answers in your yellow books.
Art: As this is the last art lesson of the term, I thought it might be nice for you to create some artwork using the nature and natural things around you. Today, I would like you to gather some things from outside on your walk or from your garden to help you create your picture. Leaves and sticks work really well or you could gather some grass cuttings or anything else that you find on the floor (Remember we don't pull things off trees or bushes as it may hurt them) to create your art work.
As our last topic was all about animals (Paws, claws and whiskers) , I would like you to combine the two topics together and create an amimal picture out of the nature that you find outside. Below are some examples to show you and give you inspiration.
End of the day story: The story I have chosen today is 'Mr Magnolia' written by Quentin Blake. I hope you enjoy this story!
