Year 1 W/c 8th June

Week Beginning Monday 08.06.2020

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.
Continue learning to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Phonics:
Today we are going to focus on practising the phase 5 tricky words. The phase 5 tricky words we have looked at are ‘Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked, oh, people, their and could’. Your child needs to have a piece of paper with six boxes on it and inside each of the boxes, they need to write one of these tricky words. To then play bingo with these tricky words, where you read out a tricky word and your child reads the words on their piece of paper and if they have it, they need to cross it out. Can they get a full house? To then follow the link https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/phase-2-to-5-tricky-words-roll-and-read-mats-activity-mat-t-l-9428. These mats focus on phase 2-5 tricky words. Focus on the pink mat, which is phase 5, however if your child needs more practise on phase 4 for instance, they could also do this. They need to roll a dice and whichever number they roll, they need to read on the piece of paper. If they roll the same number twice, they read the number next to  the one they’ve just read.
Maths: This week we will be using a maths website called White Rose, to continue looking at fractions. There are videos and worksheets to complete. There are also answer sheets so that you can mark the work as well. If there are worksheets that you cannot print off, please write your answers on a separate piece of paper. The link for this website is below.

Today’s lesson is going to be finding ½ of a quantity. If your child needs a recap on what ½ is, go to https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ and then Summer Term - Week 1 (w/c 20 April), scroll down and select Lesson Four Finding a Half (1). Here you can watch the video lesson and complete the worksheet, if you feel your child needs more practise on this. Explain to your child that finding a ½ of a quantity is where you are finding ½ of a number. We have been focusing on objects and shapes, however we also need to know how to half numbers. Model and explain to your child that today you are going to ½ quantities between two people and the number you are halving needs to be shared equally between these two people. To model this by having two pieces of paper with one big circle drawn on each piece of paper, which represents the two people you are sharing between. To then choose an even number between 1-20, such as 8, then get 8 objects to represent that number such as pebbles, cubes, etc. To then put one object at a time into one circle on your piece of paper, then another one into the other piece of paper with the circle on, then go back to the first circle and add an object into it and so on, until all of the objects have been shared. To then count one group of objects in one circle, which represents the ½. To model this again if your child needs to look at it again. Today’s task is to have two large hoops if you have them and this task might be nice to do in the garden. If you do not have hoops, you could use two skipping ropes made into circles on the floor or just two pieces of paper with a circle drawn on each of them. You need to give your child an even number between 1-20, they need to make that number with objects and shared them out between the two circles and then count one group of objects in one circle to find the half. To record their answers, your child needs to write on a piece of paper ½ of _ is _. To repeat with different numbers. For a challenge, you could ask your child to attempt to ½ an odd number. Ask them what happens when they try to half it and to make sure they are reasoning, can they explain using the word because, why it does not work.

Literacy

This week we will be reading about some truly crazy creatures called Flanimals created by the comedian Ricky Gervaise. The aim of this unit is to learn how to write a simple report but also to consolidate and improve our Science learning about animal groups. When you look at a Flanimal  it is good to think about which real life animals they are like eg if they have two legs they are very like birds. Today have fun reading about the different Flanimals and decide which is your favourite. Draw a picture of it and then think of three questions you would like to ask it. There is a format below. Don’t forget to start with a capital letter and end with a question mark!

Science

A lesson has been set on Developing Experts this week. You will need to log in using your password and complete the set lesson. Here you will learn about how and why animals are divided up into the groups carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. For those of you who are good at identifying these animals you will also learn about another group of animals who are insectivores. Then having enjoyed the lesson, have a go at printing out the sorting activity. If this is not possible draw a range of creatures and talk about which group they belong to. You will need to decide  eventually what group your Flanimal will belong to .  

TUESDAY.

Phonics: This week, the children are going to focus on plurals. We are going to focus on words which contain ‘es’, instead of ‘s’. The rule when adding ‘es’ to a word instead of an ‘s’ is if ends in ch, sh, x, z or a s, you add an ‘es’ and everything else, add an ‘s’. Top tip: If the word ends in a buzzing, hissing or shushing sound, add es. Watch /suffolk/primary/carltoncolville/arenas/websitecontent/web/pluralssandespowerpoint.ppt. Today the task is to create a poster to help them remember this rule, which will come in use during the week. Your poster must include a title along the lines of ‘adding es’, include sh, x, s, ch, z on the poster to show what the word need to end in for it to become ‘es’ for the plural and they need to draw some pictures of things that becomes ‘es’ when plural, such as watches, or buses. They could even make up a short song to help them remember the rule, which would be great to see on Class Dojo!
Maths: Today we are going to focus on ½ of a quantity again. To visit https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ and go to Summer Term – Week 2 (w/c 27th April) and select Lesson 1 – Find a Half (2). To watch the video lesson and then complete the worksheet (this is under ‘Get the Activity’). To help your child with working out finding ½ of a quantity, they can do this by drawing pictures. You need to have two circles drawn on one piece of paper, big enough to draw in them. To then choose an even number between 1-20 and in the circles draw one X in one circle, then drawn one X in the other circle and so on. Whilst doing so, be counting as you do it, so when you get to the number you are focusing on, you know to stop. To then count how many X are in one circle and this is your half. Your child can have a practise at doing a couple of these. When doing the worksheet, they can use this method to work out the answers, or if they prefer doing it like the previous lesson, they can complete their workings out using this method instead.

Literacy

We have one last spelling rule to learn when spelling verbs and putting on an ending eg ing or ed.If you refer back to our spelling rules power point ( see below slides 7 - ) , you will find instructions and examples of what happens if a verb ends in an e  when adding ing or ed .eg to skate, to dive , to smile - A good way of remembering this rule is to drop the e and then add your ending. Using  a Flanimal from yesterday’s power point, can you make a present tense and past tense verb pair . Using one of the following verbs eg smile, wipe, dive, skate . Eg Present  Tense The Grundit is smiling. Past  Tense – The Grundit smiled. There is a format below with an example.

Science

Read the information sheet about The SeaSquibber. Using what you learned from yesterday can you decide to which group The Seasquibber would belong ( carnivore, herbivore or omnivore) and explain how you know . You will need a because in this sentence. See format below.

Today, the children are going to read the text below and highlight the ‘es’ words they see in the text. After they are done, they need to make a list of these ‘es’ words they’ve spotted and these would be great to see on Class Dojo!
Maths: Today’s focus is going to be finding ¼ of a quantity. If your child needs a recap on finding ¼ of shapes and objects, visit https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ and go to Summer Term – Week 2 (w/c 27th April), scroll down and select Lesson 2 – Find a Quarter (1). Here you can watch the video lesson and complete the worksheet if you feel your child needs more practise. Discuss with your child that finding ¼ of a quantity is where you are finding a ¼ of a number and you are sharing it equally between four. Similarly to Monday’s maths lesson, explain that today you are going to find ¼ of a quantity using objects and circles. Key question to ask your child: If we drew 2 circles to ½ a quantity, how many circles would we need to draw for ¼? To then model and explain today’s task by drawing 4 circles on 4 different pieces of paper, big enough to fit objects in them. To then choose an even number between 1-20 and make this amount using objects such as pebbles, cubes, etc. To then put one object into one circle, another into the next circle and so on, until no objects are left. Then count the objects in one circle, as we are finding ¼ of this quantity. Your child then needs to try this themselves. They can use 4 pieces of paper to draw a circle on each, or use 4 hoops or 4 skipping ropes made into circles. You then need to give them an even number between 1-20, they need to make it using objects, share them between the four circles and then count how many are in one circle. To record the answer as ¼ of _ is _. To repeat with different numbers. For a challenge, ask your child why you can’t put two objects in one circle and one in all of the other circles. What would happen? Your child needs to use the word because in their answer, to help them practise reasoning.

Literacy

On a sheet below you will find information about some more Flanimals. Read it carefully and then using the information , draw the Flanimals carefully. This is really testing you on how much detail you  read about each Flaminal and is all about understanding what you have read.

Science

Have a look on Twinkle at a food chain powerpoint . All energy comes from the sun which plants use to grow and make food. This energy is passed on to herbivores who eat plants and then passed on to carnivores who eat the herbivores. Have a go at making a simple food chain using  tubes of white paper. Cut up some rectangles and draw each part of the food chain on. Then roll them into tubes and stand up. Your first one will be the sun , then a plant eg grass , then a herbivore and finally a carnivore. There is a template to help you below but if confident you can use your own .

Today, the children need to match the words to the correct ending when they are plural. There are words which end in ‘es’ and ‘s’ on the worksheet. To use the sheet below, if you can’t print, please copy out for your child to complete. For a challenge, can you write some sentences with the words which have the ‘es’ plural?

Read the information about The SeaSquibber again ( see  Tuesday ). Today we are going to focus on the very first sentence of the report. Did you know that Seasquibbers are one of the smallest Flanimals on the planet ? This is called a hook sentence as it draws you in and makes you want to read on . Using one of the following words , can you create a new hook sentence and draw a picture to with It . eg Did you know that SeaSquibbers are one of the fastest Flanimals on the planet?

 

Fattest ,  thinnest , cheekiest .cutest , hairiest, smoothest ,fastest, scariest

Science

Can you make a Flanimal foodchain? Using the format below , draw each part starting as usual with the sun and a plant. Then have fun creating your own herbivore and carnivore Flanimal. Don’t forget to write about what each Flanimal eats.

To watch https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-l-53585-year-1-adding-s-and-es-to-make-plurals-warm-up-powerpoint-english. Today’s task is for you to read out some words which contain the plural ‘es’ for example, bushes to your child. Your child needs to listen to the word and then write it down. They can use their poster they made earlier in the week, to see if they need to add an ‘es’ or an ‘s’. To repeat with lots of different words which contain the plural ‘es’. For a challenge, you could also read out some words which contain both ‘es’ and ‘s’ plural endings and your child needs to decide which one needs to be used by using their poster to support them.
Maths: Today, the children are going to be focusing on some White Rose varied fluency and problem solving & reasoning questions, which we would usually use in the classroom as a challenge if they had completed their work. The challenges can be found below under ‘Friday Maths’ and they focus on all we have covered to do with fractions. Please do not feel like you have to complete them all, I would focus on the ones you feel your child needs some more practise on. On the questions which ask to explain your answer, your child needs to use the word because to do this. They could explain their answer by simply telling you, or they can write it down. If they write it, they need to write in sentences, remembering capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

Today we would like you to invent your own Flanimal which lives in a special habitat. It will need to have a body suited to living in its habitat eg if it lives on a mountain , it may need feet to cling on to the rocks or if under water it may need to have gills like a fish. Draw your Flanimal and label it’s different parts eg skin , eyes, legs, arms etc. You can also label the parts of the habitat. This is in preparation for writing a report next week so labels are the first step at the moment. Use your imagination to give your Flanimal a name. There is a sheet for recording this below.

Art

Draw  and paint a habitat for a SeaSquibber. If you have forgotten read the information text again. Make sure you include the beach and the rockpools !
