### Year1 W/c 29th June

__Week Beginning Monday__ 29.06.2020

__Ongoing: __

Please continue to practise phonics. Phonics Play has great resources for different phases and has brilliant games such as ‘Picnic or Pluto’ and ‘Dragon’s Den’. Please focus on phases 3 and 5 and the sounds that you think/your child thinks they need more practise on.

Please continue to read with your child regularly. Oxford Owl has lots of e-books, which have different levels to suit your child.

Phonics:** Today, we are going to continue to go through the second section of phase 5 tricky words. However, before we do this, play ‘Tricky Word Trucks’ on Phonics Play. Focus on phase 4 and phase 5a. The tricky words we would like you to focus on this week are ‘many, once, because and friends’. Discuss the tricky parts of these words with your child. Your task to practise these tricky words today is to create a tricky word car park (see example below). When writing the tricky word into a parking space, write it at least three times. Then once all of the tricky words are written, to call out a tricky word and your child has to use a toy car for example, to park into the correct space.

**Maths: **This week, we are going to move onto division. Discuss with your child why it is important to learn division, how do we use it in everyday life? Discuss the division symbol and make the division symbol by karate chopping in the air a line with your arm, then putting the dots on top and underneath the line with your finger. Discuss the other names for division – sharing, dividing. Also discuss that division is the opposite of multiplication, so the answer becomes smaller and not bigger. Explain that biggest number always goes first in a division sum. To then work through a few slides of the PowerPoint (found below and only up to slide 8), with lots of discussion on sharing (for instance, one cookie goes to one person and another cookie goes to the other person, until there are no cookies left and you count how many one person has in total). When discussing the slides, ensure you discuss that dividing is where you are sharing equally. Today’s task is to divide practically by sharing. To have some paper plates (or something to represent the people the objects are being shared between). To then write out some division questions for your child (only focusing on 2, 3, 4 and 5). Your child might need a few examples shown of the sharing method first, before they do it themselves. For example, if you had the division sum 10 divided by 5, you look at the second number in the sum and this is how many paper plates you need. Once you have your five paper plates, you then look at the first number in the sum and this is how many objects you need. Once you have ten objects (stones, Lego, etc), you need to put one object on each paper plate at a time, until you have no objects left. Top tip: Count as you are adding the objects to the plates, to make sure you are sharing them equally and not losing count. Then, you count how many objects are on one paper plate and this is your answer. After they have done the task, if you feel your child needs a challenge, you could write out a division sum and you could draw some plates with some objects on and on one of the plates, you could draw one more object on it, than the other plates. Then ask your child if you have completed the method for a division sum correctly, have you made any juicy mistakes? See if they can spot it and they need to record their answer as a written sentence. For example, ‘This sum is not correct because you have put one more object on this plate and the objects have not been shared equally’. Remember your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

**Literacy: **This week we will be learning how to write an exciting adventure story based on the characters from the lion king. You will need to have a mapping out sheet using the template above and lined paper. It may be useful to have the map of the Pride lands from last week so you can look at the dangerous places Simba can wander. First open the power point and watch the film clip as Simba and Nala walk into the Elephant’s graveyard. There are two clips available below and are very short excerpts from the film and cartoon. You can decide together to watch one or both clips but be aware that the **real- life film has a PG rating**. Then focus on the scenery of the graveyard and think about what Simba could see, hear and smell in this scary place. Draw and label these things on the format below.

**Geography: **Today we are going to talk about two geographical words, urban and rural. These are both words which can be used to describe a place. Urban describes a built-up place where lots of people live EG a town or a city whereas rural refers to places with open countryside and much smaller settlements. Go through the power point which will show you urban and rural areas of Kenya. Which ones are which and how do you know? The last slide is an image of Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. Would you like to live there? Using the format above, record your answer in a sentence and please use a because to explain why.

__Tuesday__** 30.06.2020
Phonics:** This week in phonics, we are going to look at adding ing and ed onto verbs that do not need the spelling of the root word changing. To watch the PowerPoint up to slide seven (found on this week’s home learning page). To then complete the ing and ed worksheets.

**Maths: **Get your child to be the teacher and explain how they would use the sharing method learnt yesterday, to solve 20 divided by 5. Then play http://www.snappymaths.com/division/earlydiv/interactive/sharing/sharingframe.htm and have lots of discussion about how the division number sums would look, remembering that the biggest number always goes first in a division sum. To then complete today’s worksheet (found on this week’s home learning page). When completing the worksheet, use the practical sharing method from yesterday’s lesson to solve the division sum.

**Literacy: **Have a look at the next slide on the power point and watch the video. Today’s story is very important as we will be using to help us write our story. Then watch the next slide and make the back drop and puppets for the beginning of the story where the two lion cubs are walking along the savannah path. It will be good if you can practise saying the first part of the story as many times as you can to get it firmly into your head.

**Geography: **Watch the video clip about the Matatu, a small bus which transports people from the urban city into rural Kenya. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ieJhwLu-K0 Using the sheet above can you draw the Matatu and then think about and draw the ways you could make a similar journey in the UK. It would be great if you could then label your drawings.

__Wednesday__** 01.07.2020
Phonics: **To continue looking at the suffix er and est. If your child needs reminding, watch the PowerPoint from yesterday’s lesson. To then make paper chains for ed and ing verbs. To have a list of verbs (where the root words does not need changing). For example, float and shift. On the first paper chain, to write the root word EG float, on the second paper chain to write the word with ED added EG floated and on the third paper chain to write the word with the ING suffix added EG floating. To then discuss and get your child to point to which one is the present and which one is the past tense.

**Maths:**Today, we are going to be using the sharing method in a pictorial form. To ask your child to draw the division symbol and check that they have drawn it correctly. Ask your child if they can tell you any facts about division EG it can be called sharing, the biggest number goes first in the sum, the answer is always smaller, etc. In the previous lessons, we have shared by using objects. However today, we are going to share by drawing the objects. To say some division sums for your child to write down for today’s task, to help them to practise writing division sums and using the division symbol (to focus on 2 and 5 and if your child needs a challenge, to also focus on 3 and 4). To then show your child some examples of using the sharing method by drawing. For example, if you had the sum 12 divided by 2, you would look at the second number in the sum and draw two big circles. You would then look at the first number in the sum and this is how many you are sharing between the 2 circles. You would then draw a cross into one of the circles one at a time, until you had counted aloud up to 12. Top tip: Take your time counting and do not rush. To then count how many crosses you have drawn into one circle and this is your answer.

**Literacy:**Have a look at the next part of the power point. Today we are going to map out and talk through the beginning of our adventure story. You will get a format for the map above and will need to keep it safe as we will be adding to it as the days go on. It is important not to skip though the talking part as this will give us confidence when writing.

**Geography:**Watch the clip about the Matatu again and talk about what would be great about travelling on this little bus and also what might be not so good. Record your ideas on the format above. These ideas will help you when you make your Matatu board game tomorrow.

__Thursday__** 02.07.2020
Phonics: **Ask your child whether the verb you are saying is past or present tense and ask them how they know this. To then get them to read the letter (found under Thursday phonics wc 29th) and be verb inspectors by crossing out the endings of verbs that they think are juicy mistakes and put the correct ending in its place.

**Maths:**Quick karate chop of what the division symbol looks like. The children have been looking at sharing using the information the division sum has provided them. However today, they are going to look at the information to see what the division sum would be. To do this, you will need to draw out some circles with pictures in for your child. For example, you could draw five big circles and in each circle draw 5 crosses. Your child needs to look at how many crosses there are in total (25) and this is the first part of the division sum. They then need to look at how many circles there are in total (5) and this is the second part of their division sum. So, they know the pictorial representation is representing the sum 25 divided by 5. To extend this, your child could then work out the answer to this sum by counting one circle. When drawing the pictorial representations for your child in this task, focus on 2 and 5 division sums and for a challenge, 3 and 4 as well.

**Literacy:**Today we will be writing the beginning of our adventure story. Watch the next slide of the power point and learn how to do this . You will need to look at the symbols you drew yesterday and talk your sentences through again. Remember to reread your sentences to check you have included finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.

**Geography/Design and Technology:**You will need a big sheet of paper or card. Look at the template of The Matatu game. This is intended to be a dice game for younger children. The aim of the game is to get your Matatu from the city( Start) to the village ( Finish). First draw the road and show each square along the journey. Number these squares. On some of the squares write and draw some good things which happen eg You are given a prize chicken – move on two squares. Then on some squares draw and write some bad things which could happen eg The Matatu has a flat tyre – miss a turn. Your board game should be decorated with some urban but gradually rural pictures( use the previous images on Tuesday for ideas). Have fun making and playing your game. You could make Matatu counters for each player and will need a dice.

__Friday__** 03.07.2020
Phonics: **To make a verb ING King and a verb ED Queen poster. You need to create a poster for each of these and they must include: A title of ING or ED, whether it is past or present, a King/Queen in the middle, the root word with an arrow pointing to the change to the word once the suffix has been added and for a challenge, sentences with these verbs in. Remember to not forget your capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

**Maths:**Today we are going to look at a new method for division, called grouping. An example of grouping for division is for the sum 14 divided by 2, you look at the first number in the sum and this is 14. You then draw 14 crosses. You then look at the second number in the sum which is 2 and this is how many you need in each group. So you draw a circle around every 2 crosses. Once you have drawn a circle around every two crosses, you count how many groups of 2 you have in total. This gives you the answer 7. To do a few examples with your child’s input, before they do the worksheet. To then complete the grouping worksheet. There is a challenge worksheet, if you feel your child needs a more challenging worksheet.

**Literacy:**Look at the next slide on the power point . Today we are going to work on the build- up section of our story. You are going to decide on a feature which marks out the beginning of the dangerous land the cubs are going to enter and why they want to go there so badly they ignore the warnings of adults .Complete the sheet with the fork in the path by drawing the feature eg a large jagged rock, big tree and then the dream bubbles with the fantastic things which are making your cubs forget the sensible thing to do.

**Art:**This afternoon you are going to paint or colour your Matatu . First think of a drawing which represents the countryside eg it could be a huge rooster. Draw it on and then paint carefully around it. Once it has dried paint your main symbol. Have a look at the video where one is shown for you. Have fun and see if you can make it as colourful as a real Matatu.
