Week 2

Friday 17th April 2020 

Good Morning Year 1, what lovely weather we have had over the last few days! I went for a nice walk yesterday. Have you managed to do some sort of exercise? Axel sent me a picture of his caravan den that he built at home, how creative! And Dora, I am very excited to hear that you are going to start reading the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe, that's one of my favourites! A few of you have started to listen to your parents reading Harry Potter! Are you enjoying it? Let me know in the register. Missing you all very much :)

Animal Pegs

collect some old pegs and create your own mini animal. Cut the picture in half and stick to the peg. 

 

 

 

Needs of an animal 

Can all animals be kept as a pet?

Think about a particular animal and find out if that animal could be a pet.

Draw pictures of different animals. Sort the animals into two groups; suitable for a pet and not suitable for a pet and explain why animals were sorted in a particular way.

 

Animal Leaflet

 

Design a leaflet explaining to potential pet owners what each animal will need. - Interview a pet owner to discuss the responsibilities involved with looking after an animal. How often do they need to find their pet? Who helps clean? What does their pet eat?

Animals 

 

I don't want you to forget what we have learnt in science about the different kinds of animals so I thought  you could do some research and watch videos to remind yourself. Click here! 

What are mammals?

What are amphibians?

What are birds?

What are fish?

What are reptiles?

What are minibeasts?

 

Create a mask

 

Using different materials around the house, create a mask of your favourite animal. Think about the colours and shape. Can you add different textures to their mask?

 

 

Animal Alphabet 

A-Z Animal list: Can you think of an animal for each letter of the alphabet. Can you add sound buttons?

Animal sorting 

Can you sort animals into groups?Click here!

Get your child to group animals into two columns. Identifying animals that can fly and cannot fly.

What do animals eat? Scientists group animals into three different groups according to what animals eat. These groups are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. Carnivores eat other animals, herbivores eat plant material including fruit, leaves, vegetables, omnivores eat a mixture of meat and plant material. (Animals that eat other animals are called carnivores. Animals that eat plants are called herbivores. Animals that eat both plants and other animals are called omnivores)

 

Reading

 

Can you read fiction, non- fiction and poems about animals? Read your favourite book with animals in and discuss what kind of animals they are. Where would they be grouped? where do they live?

 

This is one of my favourite books:) 

 It is all about a Donkey! Not just any Donkey...A WONKY DONKY

 I have read it to you a few times...

 

A donkey is a Mammal and the smallest member of the horse family. Donkeys can perform the same gaits as horses, but generally don't gallop. They can run up to 50 kilometers (31 miles) per hour. They have much longer ears than horses, and a "broomtail" similar to a cow's tail. They are Herbivores!

 

Wednesday 15th April 2020 

Good Morning Year 1, I hope you enjoyed the long weekend. What did you get up to? I made some cupcakes and read a new book! Don't forget to sign the register below: 

 

 

 

We have lots of April Birthdays in Year 1 and over the weekend we missed a few... So I must say a big happy BELATED birthday to...

 

Madina and Vyan!

 

 

I hope you had a wonderful day full of fun and laughter!

 

 

As it is still the Easter Break, I will just upload some fun activities that you can do if you would like to.

 

 

 

Activity - Miniature book making 

 

 

Click here and the link will take you to the page that tells you all about mini books and how to make your own. 

What will your book be about?

Will it be fiction or non fiction?

 

 

Game - Play 20 questions 

 

1.Everyone should get into groups of between two and five people.

 

2.Choose a volunteer to go first. That person should think of an animal, vegetable or mineral.

3. The person who has chosen should tell the rest of their group whether the thing they’ve thought of is an animal, vegetable or mineral.

5.Each round lasts until 20 questions have been asked or the object is guessed. If someone guesses correctly what the animal, vegetable or mineral was, they can choose the next object. If no-one guesses correctly, the chooser can have another turn.

 

 

Activity - Craft Ideas 

 

 

 

Rainbows are really popular in spring, and you may have seen some children putting rainbows in their window during this time. Why not make your own rainbow craft!
