Home Learning Week 1

Friday 27th March 2020 

 

Good Morning Year One! Happy Friday. I've loved reading your messages and seeing who has enjoyed their learning tasks. Thank you to the parents who have sent me pictures and videos of the children working from home, they brightened up my day! If you would like to send some pictures please email me using the year 1 - contact my teacher form.

Celebration Assembly

Friday is usually a special day because we have celebration assembly where we award certificates to children who have worked particularly hard. We are going to hold a special kind of celebration assembly where YOU will choose who the award goes to at home.  Today you’re going to be awarding the certificates to people in your family who have helped you this week. Have they taught you something new? Have they helped you solve a problem that was tricky? Have they helped to cheer you or someone else up? Have they done something especially kind?

 

Below is a PDF with examples of what your certificates could look like - but be as creative as you like. Remember to make your message thoughtful. Don’t forget to give the winners a round of applause!

Maths

 

Click here to access your maths lesson today on measuring length.

      

Maths Challenge  1: 

Can you collect your own data by measuring objects around the house? How will you record your data?

My book is ten cubes long

My Teddy is 15 cubes long etc.

My feet are 10 cubes long.

Which one is the longest? What is the difference?

Remember to use our star words: Longer, shorter, taller.

 

Maths challenge 2:

Play ‘Guess the Shape’ with a friend or family member. Describe a shape, remembering to say how many sides and corners it has and to be specific, e.g. “It has 4 sides. It has 4 corners. It has 4 equal sides.” See who can guess the most shapes correctly.

 

Literacy 

 

                                                 

Astronauts are very interesting people. They are also very intelligent and are very dedicated to what they do. Since we have been sending astronauts into space, we have sent about 500. These 500 people are very lucky, because they are the only people who have seen our planet with their own eyes from space. We haven’t sent them very far yet though, as technology is only limited to what we know. We have come a long way though, with our opportunities limitless in the future.  Outside of the 500 Astronauts who have travelled to space, just above the Earth, there are about 25 Astronauts that have travelled just that little bit further and have orbited the moon, and only about half of them have touched down on a completely different world. Yes you guessed it. That other world is the moon!  

 

Our topic this week has been about aliens and lots of you have shown interest in the space topic. So, today I would like you to investigate and create a fact file about a day in the life of an astronaut. 

 

Just like we did in class fold your paper into 3 parts and have a section for each part of your fact file for example;

1.Food astronauts eat

2.Activities astronauts do

3.How astronauts get to space

 

Gather your information and then write a few sentences for each. You could include special facts, pictures you have drawn or cut out and don’t forget a fancy front cover!

 

Here are some websites you could use:

 

https://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/k-4/features/F_All_About_Astronauts.html

https://www.ouruniverseforkids.com/astronauts/

http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/sciencefacts/space/astronauts.html

https://www.esa.int/kids/en/learn/Life_in_Space/Astronauts/Weightless_science

https://www.nasa.gov/kidsclub/index.html

 

I hope you have a fabulous weekend! 

Love, 

Miss Cumberbatch

Weekly Geography

 

This term in geography we have been using positional language to describe where things are. We used ‘beebots’ and programmed their journey using ‘North, East, South and West’.  Please draw/build a route for a toy you have at home. Remember to use our positional words. Have a go at writing down the directions too.

Maths challenge: Count forwards AND backwards from 0-100. You could use a 100 square to help you!

 

Literacy:

 

In school we use the same book/video to create lots of writing tasks. So, based on the same video as yesterday (which can be found here) the children could pretend to be the boy and write a postcard to a friend on Earth about what they’ve had to do on their adventure. Remember to have lots of discussion about what he may have seen on his journey from Earth to space and what kind of things they would want to tell their friend. Remind them to use capital letters, full stops and maybe they could include a question to their friend. E.g. do you miss me?

 

They started learning about contractions (I’m, don’t, it’s) to shorten some words so this could also be included in their learning for today.

 

Spellings: 

Choose 5 spellings a week to focus on from the 100 high frequency words/common exception words. 

 

 

 

Reading: 

Read the books provided to send home,make some flash cards of the words you found tricky. If you run out of books you can sign up to:

class code: pnx9670

 

 

Weekly Art 

 

In art we were looking at 'The Snail' by Henri Matisse. We started sketching our own animal and thought about the ways we could use collage to create our own piece of art work. Why don't you watch some animals live from Edinburgh Zoo and have a go at sketching a new animal and work on creating a collage using ripped coloured paper or newspaper. Click here to enter the Zoo cam!

Suggested literacy activity:

 

https://www.literacyshed.com/thewaybackhome.html

Using the same video again, today the children could design and make their own rocket using junk modelling materials around the house.

After, they could write a description of their rocket using adjectives. (Discuss how it looks, the shapes, the colour) what materials have been used? (Metal, wood, fabric, cardboard) are there parts that are transparent?

Adjectives prompts: bright, clear, dirty, long, short, sparkly, strange, enormous, gigantic, massive, and tiny.

 

My rocket has a tall, red cone on the top. There are lots of sparkly, big buttons inside which I can press to make the rocket move. 

 

Weekly Science 

 

In science we have been exploring different materials, what they can be used for and their properties. Why don't you have a go at conducting your own experiment to see which materials are bendy/not bendy and which materials can float/sink. I will link a sheet below, if you cant access a printer you could do this in your exercise book.
