EASTER BONNET COMPETITION

 

 

I have been absolutely amazed with all of the Easter bonnet entries and how well you have managed to make something so spectacular out of things around your home! I’ve sat looking at the screen trying to decide who I will crown the winner... I called Miss Kennedy to help and she couldn’t choose just one, then I messaged some of the other teachers who also couldn’t decide on a single winner. So I have decided to name you all winners!

 

CONGRATULATIONS...

Timothy, Aaron, Dora, Isidora, Jake, Baylee and Lily.

 

I will post their creations so you can see how hard they have worked! As this year we are unable to give you real eggs, I'm awarding you all virtual eggs! 

Make sure you go and have a look at all of the other class pages to see their fabulous designs!

Friday 3rd April 2020

Good morning Year 1! Well done for having a fabulous week packed with lots of fun and learning. You have all worked very hard and I must say I am very impressed with how much effort you have put into your home learning. We have had a few Easter Bonnets and crown pictures sent in, the deadline is 3pm today! 

 

Just a reminder that I can't respond to comments on the register BUT I do see them and I miss you all very much! 

 

***Special Birthday shout out to TAYDEN who will be 6 on the 5th April***

 

 

enlightenedEaster Break enlightened

 

Next week was meant to be the Easter break but with all that is going on and things being the way they are, we thought we would keep going. Oh no, don't worry you wont have lots of work to do, but myself and the other teachers will continue to post messages and give you creative activity ideas which you can complete with your family. If you are busy, don't worry! These activities are just ideas to keep you busy if you can't think of something to do. You can still contact me and send me pictures of your work and what you're up to... I love hearing from you. 

 

heartCelebration Assemblyheart

 

It's Friday and that only means one thing... SPECIAL ASSEMBLY! With a twist of course, I hope you have thought hard about who you're going to give your certificate to this week. Who has worked hard? Who has helped you do your work? Has someone learnt a new skill? Who has been kind? Remember we are showing our appreciation and thanking people we live with. I saw a fabulous certificate last week thanking a parent for giving them a lovely haircut. Draw your own certificate and tell me in the register who you are awarding your certificate to!

 

I would like to give a certificate to all of the year 1 parents and carers. This week I have heard all about how much the children have enjoyed the activities they are doing. I have also seen some amazing work and that is all because of YOU!  *Super parents*

Literacy

 

I have seen some fabulous work this week based on Jack and the beanstalk. Did you enjoy that story? What was your favourite part? Today I would like you to write me a book review so I can find out what you enjoyed most about the story. You can even draw a little picture. 

Remember to include: 

 

Title of the book 

Author of the book 

Why you liked or didn't like it

Your favourite part/character and why

Would you recommend the book to someone else?

Does it remind you of any other stories you have read?

 

 

 

Maths

 

Please keep encouraging your children to measure objects, using the language they have learnt (taller, shorter, heavier, lighter, full, empty) and expose them to as many opportunities to measure and discuss measures.

 

I know lots of you will have enjoyed that little footloose dance, I have attached another dance for you to do which explores patterns (You will probably have a little giggle too!) Click on the dancing emoji...

 

 

Make patterns with objects you have at home like blocks, toy cars, or stickers! Create different pattern challenges for your kids like: Make the longest patterns you can, or create a pattern with three different colours. You can use anything to create patterns - shapes, numbers, objects! 

 

School Trip: Learning Journey Topic 

 

Seeing as we will not get to go on our trips, I decided that we can take a virtual trip to the farm!

laughDid you know a baby deer is called a fawn?laugh

 

Can you find out the names of all the baby animals found on a farm and create your own animal book?

Which animals could you include? 

What are their young called?

 

Super work to be proud of ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday 2nd April 2020

 

Happy Thursday! I have really enjoyed seeing all of the hard work you have been doing this week. It's such a shame we are not at school to do our classroom learning walks, where we can appreciate and celebrate our friends work. I am going to put up a few pieces that have been sent to me which have blown me away! I am very excited to to see more of what you have been up to... If you have anything you would like to share please email year1@crampton.southwark.sch.uk. Reminder that Easter Bonnets are due tomorrow! 

 Miss Vanstone told me to mention that she misses you all very much :)

Look at flashcards of all of the sounds you have looked at previously (start to build a bank)

Write the sound: ou  ou  ou  ou  ou (which two letters make that sound?)

Read/write the sound in words (Suggested words): shout, out, hour, sound, flour, mouth, loud, fountain.  Can you think of anymore?

Write a sentence with that sound:  There was a creepy, loud sound in the garden.

Try to use some of the 100 HFW so children get a chance to write them).

Spot the sounds by writing sound buttons: Parents write a sentence and child out sound buttons and bars under each sound. Try to use different words with sounds they have learnt.

For parents only accessing this now – there is an example in week one of me doing the task on a sheet of paper.

Handwriting 

 

 

This week you should focus on your curly caterpillar letters! Remember our structure for beautiful handwriting. Back straight, feet on the ground and concentrate.

You can find a video to help you HERE.

 

Literacy

 

 

Read the story (up to page 6 found below as PDF) What did Jack swap the cow for?

 

Today I would like you to write what you would do if you found a magic bean! Think about all the possibilities and all the different things you could do with it. Try to write a few sentences.

 

Use this sentence to start. If I had a magic bean I would.....

 

Remember

Full stops

Capital letters

Practice saying your sentence aloud first

How do we spell our red words: WOULD – w, oh, you, lucky, duck.

Use phonics to help you sound out other words.

Can you make it better? Using adjectives

 

 

 

 

Maths

 

Please keep encouraging your children to measure objects, using the language they have learnt (taller, shorter, heavier, lighter, full, empty) and expose them to as many opportunities to measure and discuss measures.

 

To round of this unit I found a fun dance video and some activities you can do with it. Who knew kids could learn so much with some pairs of shoes? Collect some shoes from different family members and give your kids any of these challenges:

 

https://family.gonoodle.com/activities/footloose

 

 

 Put the shoes in size order from smallest to largest.

 Mix up the shoes, so kids can match up pairs as fast as they can!

 Build a tower of shoes! Challenge kids to see how high they can build a “shoe tower” before it falls.

Measure or count the shoes in the tower to add some maths!

 Sort shoes by colour, type, or owners.

 

 

Weekly Art project 

 

                      Why don’t you try some shadow drawing... It’s a fun and exciting way to create pictures looking at different shapes and movement. You can be as creative as you like as use your favourite objects around the house to make different shapes.

Can someone in your house guess what objects shadows you have drawn?

I have linked some examples below.

Maths

 

You can find today's maths lesson on My Maths by clicking here. Today's lesson is on comparing capacity. 

Please log into my maths online using the password to access extra tasks. 

 

Maths challenge:

It's so important that the children get a good understanding of mass, how to test mass and how different weight feels. In order to get a deeper understanding children need to see that just because an object is smaller, it doesn't mean that is going to be lighter. Give your children a range of practical objects from the cupboards and get them to guess which one is heavier/lighter first. Then ask them to feel which has the greater mass. 

 

You can even expose them to weights using scales and how we measure using standard units (kilograms and grams). Look at the back of pasta/flour packets to see how much they weigh. Bake a cake and ask the children to measure out the ingredients. You could also compare 1kg of pasta to 1kg of sugar. 

 

 

 

Weekly Science Task

                                 

 

This week to link to our story I thought it would be nice to see how beans grow. Now, you can either plant your own bean and observe it over time to see what changes happen OR you can watch a video and create your own bean diary. 

What happens on the first day? (third day, fifth day and so on). Can you draw a picture of each stage?

Has the giant seen Jack?

How might Jack feel at this moment?

Would you rather be the giant or Jack?

Would you rather be a giant in a land of humans, or a human in a land of giants?

What/who else lives in the land of the giants?

Why do giants live apart from humans?

After you’ve done lots of thinking and imagining can you draw/paint/create a picture of a room inside the giant’s house? You could draw Jack inside the room to put everything in perspective. When you finish that, you can write a few sentences using your new adjectives to write a description of the giants room.

 

For example

 

The Giant’s room has a large, wooden cupboard full of sweet, delicious treats. It is messy and has cobwebs in each corner. There is a huge, soft pillow on the floor which he uses for his bed. The walls are dark and dirty.

 

Don't forget: Finger spaces, capital letters, full stops, adjectives and an apostrophe for possession. (Who does the room belong to?)

Using a giant’s hand shape, guess how many beans (cubes, grains or rice, pasta shells) each hand will be able to hold. Then check to see if your estimation was correct. You could use a large hand outline, and other sizes inside. The children should guess for each hand, but after one hand is done they might be able to guess more accurately depending on if the hand is bigger or smaller.

 

 

Weekly Geography Task

Create a map of Jack’s Village, where his house was, the market and the beanstalk. Think about all the map work we have done and try to include a key using colours, so I know how to read it and where to find what I am looking for.

 

 What else could go on the map? Does he live in a town or a village? Think about the story of town mouse and country mouse, what would you find in a village that’s different from a town?

‘Big’ and ‘small’ are adjectives to describe the giant and Jack. Can you think of synonyms (words that have the same or similar meaning) for ‘big’ and ‘small’?

 

Can you write some sentences to describe Jack or the giant, using some of your synonyms?

For example

The giant’s enormous, brown boots were stinky.

Jack used his little hands to help him climb the beanstalk.

 

I’ve used a capital letter, full stop, apostrophe for possession AND an adjective. Can you build a super sentence too?

As it is the final week before Easter, we thought it would be nice to have an Easter Bonnet competition but this time a little differently. This year you obviously can’t go out to the shops so we want to see you be creative with what you already have at home (toilet roll tubes, cotton buds/wool, foil or cut up paper) whatever you can find!

If you don’t have the resources you would like, you can alternatively submit a drawn and labelled design of the bonnet you would have created.

 

Please send photos of your completed bonnet or design to year1@crampton.southwark.sch.uk

Winners will be chosen at the end of the week and results announced on the website. Also, I love seeing what you’re all getting up to so please email any pictures of projects or work you are proud of.
