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, I am loving the beautiful pictures of your topic work from yesterday, some of you could be tree experts in the future! Super job spotting the evergreen and deciduous trees.
I am glad some of you enjoyed the star wars joke from yesterday, Lola and Gorge thought it was really funny too! I was at school yesterday teaching the children who needed to be at school so their grown-ups can carry on being key workers so George decided he would come along to see the classroom and tidy it up...as he thinks I am messy! (Cheeky giraffe!). We decorated biscuits today with icing and different sweets in the afternoon as a treat for working so hard all morning and completing our home learning. George really enjoyed this and joined in!
Morning work: In your yellow books, can you complete these 15 subtraction problems:
Phonics: In your letters and sounds booklet please go back to page 16. You have to read the decodable hight frequency words to your grown-ups. Remember practice makes perfect!

English: Today, we are going to begin writing the story of the 'Tiny seed' in our own words. We are going to write this over two days so please do not rush or feel like you have to write lots today. Remember to look at your story map from yesterday to help you with your ideas.
Today I would like you to try and write up the parts of the story for the seasons of Autumn and Winter. Remember to do your best Year 1 writing and remember to make it interesting by using lots of describing words so that when somebody reads it they want to carry on reading!
Remember to include:
Here is a video of the 'Tiny seed' to help you if you think you might have forgotten something from your story maps.
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/
These are uploaded after 11am daily, but you can still access the earlier ones of you go on before then.
To count in 10p it is the same as counting in 10s. for every 10p you have you add an extra 10.

Art: Today for our Art lesson we are going to be looking at the things we can see out of our windows.
Today, I would like you to look out of your window, what can you see? Can you see any flowers? Are they in pots, Hanging baskets or in the ground? Can you see any of the trees we talked about yesterday in our Topic lesson? Can you see some grass? Is the sky a lovely blue with lots of fluffy clouds? Is it raining and grey?
In your yellow books or on a seperate piece of paper, I would like you to draw what you can see when you look out of your window. To do this start by drawing your window frame and then inside that draw the things you can see. You could use paints, chalk, crayons, pencil crayons, felt tips or anything you have at home to create your picture.
If you are using paints, do you need to mix any of the colours to make new ones? There is a colour mixing chart below to help you decide which colours you need to mix incase you have forgotten.
Here is a few examples of today's task so you can see what I would like you do complete. Make it as big and colourful as you want to. I would really love to see your finished Artwork! Don't forget to send me an email with a picture of it!
End of the day story: The story I have chosen today is one that we have read a few times in class. It is 'Elmer in the snow'. Written by David Mckee.
