A Note for Parents:

I know home learning provides its challenges and most children are missing their normal routines. Hopefully the new Literacy and Maths will help support you and allow children to work a little more independently.

If you are struggling to engage children in the daily tasks set, then feel free to access something different, do a challenge from the challenge grid, or leave the tasks all together for the day. Only do as much learning as you feel is appropriate, you will know when you have simply done enough for the day. I wil always provide 5 activates a day in case you want to keep busy for the whole day. HOWEVER, please do not feel pressured into completing the 5 activities every single day. I would rather there is too much for you than not enough, then this allows you to choose what you think is suitable each day. Use the weekly overview and mix up your days if there is something that you feel will engage the children on a tough day.

Don’t worry about catching up on any tasks, this will not be detrimental to learning and we will soon catch up on anything upon returning to school!

YOU ARE ALL DOING A FANTASTIC JOB!!  heart

Good Morning Year 1!

I hope you enjoy today's video of Bailey looking for some fish to play with.

PE

Today we are going to focus on combining different jumps. Today we are going to start with the same warm-up we did last week.

 

Warm-up - Kangaroos

  1. Start by jogging around a space on the balls of your feet
  2. When you hear the leader shout “Kangaroo over the fence” jump with your arms and legs as high as you can in the air
  3. When you hear the leader shout “Kangaroos side to side” jump with two feet together side to side.
  4. When you hear the leader shout “Kangaroos, paws on your head” jump forward with hands on your head.
  5. When you hear the leader shout “Kangaroos, fast as you can” make small jumps with legs together.

 

Skill Activity

For our first activity we are going to play a game called copy me. You will need a partner to work with (this could be anyone in your family).

Face your partner about two or three metres apart. The first person takes a turn at doing a series of jumps in different directions. These could be sideways, forwards backwards, upwards. The other person must act a mirror and do the same jumps. Take turns and swap.

After a while you can take turns to make a combination of jumps (two to five jumps), see if you can watch and copy the sequence. Take turns at this.

 

Skill Application/Game

Today we will have some different jump stations:

  1. Ladder: For this activity make a ladder on the ground, you can use anything to create your ladder (sticks are good to use). Throw something into one of the ladder spaces and then make a combination jump to go and get the item. A little bit like hop-scotch!
  2. Stepping Stones: For this activity you will need something to act as stepping stones. Make a combination of jumps to get across the ‘river’ using the stepping stones.
  3. Dice Jump: For this activity use a dice (or get an online dice). Roll your dice and see if you can make a combination of jumps with the number you rolled.
  4. Lily Pads: Place two ‘lily pads’ (markers) down space about 5 meters apart. Have a go at jumping from one lily pad to the other lily pad. Use different jump combinations. How many jumps does it take?

 

Cool Down

Stretch your body by moving your body and making the shapes of different letters. Can you make the letter P, T, V, L, X? What other letters can you make?

https://www.thenational.academy/year-1/english/to-describe-a-characters-personality-year-1-wk3-4

 

ART

Today we are going to use our imaginations and become birds. Today as birds we are going to create a bird’s nest to keep our eggs safe. Find something that represents some eggs, it could be stones, plastic balls, anything.

Think about what materials would be good to surround your eggs with. We want to keep our eggs warm and cosy, can you find warm, soft, smooth materials to place close to your eggs. As your nest grows outwards we want to keep out any intruders that might get into our nest. Can you surround the warm and cosy part of your nest with rough, spiky, cold materials to keep your eggs safe?

Take a photo of your nest and upload it to SeeSaw – we will compare our nests with everyone else’s.

 

PSHCE

Last week we thought about our star qualities and what makes us special. This week we are going to focus on ‘Aiming High’ and think about what jobs we would like to do when we grow up.

Start by opening the PowerPoint and working through the slides. When you get to the acting out a job – you can use the Job Cards(below) to pick a job to act out. You could also get your grown up to act out a job and give clues and see if you can guess what job they picked.

Your written task is to write and draw what you want to do when you grow up.

You might decide to read out what you want to do when you grow up and share this on seesaw with all your friends.

PE

Today we will be doing our REAL PE lesson again. Get your family involved and have fun with today’s lesson.

Warm Up

For our warm up we are going to pretend we are going to climb up a beanstalk again, into the land of beans to look for one very special magic bean, which grows anything you could wish for.

  1. Crouch down low like a small bean growing from a shoot and then stretch up tall and high like a bean sprout
  2. Move around the space pretending to climb the beanstalk, use high knees and arms to help pull you up
  3. When the leader shouts (runner bean) run around as fast as you can
  4. When the leader shouts HI 5, run and high five someone
  5. When the leader shouts tickly giant, quickly turn into frozen beans so you can’t be seen. If you move, you might get tickled!
  6. When the leader shouts broad bean, take huge steps and noisy steps and make scary faces as you stomp around.

 

Skill

Today you will need two balls if you have them. You will need someone to drop the balls for you from shoulder height. You will need to watch very carefully and Now react quickly to catch the ball that is dropped.

Once you have practiced this a few times, see if you can catch the ball after one bounce.

To make it trickier start close to the person dropping the ball and move further away each time. You will have to run to catch the ball after it has bounced.

 

Skill Application

With a partner (family member) draw letters or shapes on the floor with chalk or floor spots/cones.

  • See if your partner can bounce the ball along the letters or shapes for you to catch.

 

Now both draw a shape on paper, fold it up and keep it secret.

  • On an imaginary line, try and bounce the ball in the shape you have on your secret paper.

 

Can your partner guess your shape?

  • Now try with a letter instead of a shape.

PE

Today we are going to focus on jumping for height and distance.  You can either do this lesson in your garden or a big outdoor space.

Warm-up - Kangaroos

  1. Start by jogging around a space on the balls of your feet
  2. When you hear the leader shout “Kangaroo over the fence” jump with your arms and legs as high as you can in the air
  3. When you hear the leader shout “Kangaroos side to side” jump with two feet together side to side.
  4. When you hear the leader shout “Kangaroos, paws on your head” jump forward with hands on your head.
  5. When you hear the leader shout “Kangaroos, fast as you can” make small jumps with legs together.

 

Skill Activity

Today we will be focusing on competing against ourselves and setting our own personal bests to see if we can jump futher or higher.

Start by practicing jumping from 1 for to 2 feet and then 2 feet to 2 feet. Each time you practice try and get higher or further. Which one works best?

Points to teach:

  • Jump from a balanced starting position
  • Land softly by bending the knees
  • Explore different body shapes in flight (these might include long and thin, tuck and star)

 

Skill Application/Game

Today we will have some different jump stations:

  1. Jump the River – use a rope or something long to create a river. Practice jumping over the river. Start close to your river and move further away and see if you can make it across without falling in the river
  2. Feet First – Create a start line, practice running to your start line and jump when you get to the start line. Mark down how far you manage to jump. Keep trying and see if you can jump further each time
  3. High Bounce – use something from your house or garden to create a low hurdle (a garden cane is good). Practice jumping over the hurdle. Start with hurdle low and see how high you can get your hurdle
  4. Target Jump – Stick a target on a wall, fence or tree. Stand side on to the wall and see if you can jump and touch the target. A post-it note makes a good target – see if you can jump and reach it. Can you move your target higher each time? How high can you get?

 

Cool Down

Stretch your body by moving your body and making the shapes of different letters. Can you make the letter P, T, V, L, X? What other letters can you make?

Warm Up

For our warm up we are going to pretend we are going to climb up a beanstalk into the land of beans to look for one very special magic bean which grows anything you could wish for.

  1. Crouch down low like a small bean growing from a shoot and then stretch up tall and high like a bean sprout
  2. Move around the space pretending to climb the beanstalk, use high knees and arms to help pull you up
  3. When the leader shouts (runner bean) run around as fast as you can
  4. When the leader shouts HI 5, run and high five someone
  5. When the leader shouts tickly giant, quickly turn into frozen beans so you can’t be seen. If you move, you might get tickled!
  6. When the leader shouts broad bean, take huge steps and noisy steps and make scary faces as you stomp around.

 

Skill

Today you will need a ball if you have one. You will need someone to drop a ball for you from shoulder height, let the ball bounce twice and then run to catch the ball.

Once you have practiced this a few times, see if you can catch the ball after one bounce.

To make it trickier start close to the person dropping the ball and move further away each time. You will have to run to catch the ball after it has bounced.

 

Skill Application

Work with a partner, taking turns as ‘catcher’ and must come up with different ways to start, move and catch the ball(s).

SCIENCE

Today we will be continuing our Science topic by looking at the different parts of a plant. Start by watching this BBC clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-ks1-ks2-ivys-plant-workshop-parts-of-a-plant/zvdkpg8

When you have watched the video work through the slides on the PowerPoint and learn the different parts of the plants and what their purpose is.

Tasks to complete:

  • Draw or craft a picture of a plant and label all the parts
  • Explore a plant in your garden or on your walk and see if you can identify all the different parts
  • Explain to someone in your family what each part of the plant does

COMPUTING

To start your lesson today research some landscapes (there are some below to get you started). Find a picture of a landscape that you would like to recreate.  Open https://www.youidraw.com/apps/painter/ and use the different tools to try and recreate a digital image of your chosen landscape.

GOOD MORNING YEAR 1!

I hope you enjoy the video of me and Bailey on our walk. We hope you all had a fantastic weekend and managed to have some celebrations on Friday. You can find the weekly overview above and don’t forget to keep adding up your points from the challenge grid! On Friday we will all share how many points we have got and see who is the winner this week!

This week we will carry on with our Oak Academy lessons, and for our other lessons we will carry on with what we would have been doing if we were in school. You are all doing a fantastic job, so keep up the hard work!

Remember to be reading daily and also to be looking at the spelling list and practicing spelling the words on this list (see document above). It might be a good idea to test yourself on all the words (broken up over the next few weeks) and any words you aren’t sure of or get wrong can be the ones you focus on until you are super confident with them all!

 

PE

Free choice PE this morning, so you can pick whatever activity you like. It could be anything from Cosmic Yoga, a Go Noodle video, Just Dance or a good old Joe Wicks workout. If you fancy doing your own thing such as football, Irish dancing, trampolining etc, then go for it! Remember to also take a look at the Yorkshire Sport Foundation who are uploading PE lesson focusing on different skills. These are brilliant and easy to do at home! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGVzDT1kETxgbfXe0BCSvkA

HISTORY

Last week we had lots of fun finding out who Neil Armstrong was and what he was famous for. Lots of you had fun building rockets and blasting off! This week we are going to look at another Astronaut called Tim Peake.

First open the PowerPoint and work through the slides learning about Tim Peake and why he is famous. On the last slide you will see some things you could find out next. Think about any questions you would like to find out about Tim Peake or about the International Space Station and write them down.

Next see if you can do some research about Tim Peake and the ISS – YouTube has lots of cool clips to watch and learn all about the ISS! Here are some links to get you started:

This one isn't Tim Peake but is a fantastic tour of the International Space Station where he was for 6 months! The Astronaut answers lots of interesting questions!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06-Xm3_Ze1o

 

RE

Today you are going to look at a number of different images on the slideshow. The images all show the same event but are all slightly different. As you work through the slides and look at the pictures think about these questions:

  • Who is in the pictures? How do you know?
  • What is happening in the pictures? What clues can you see?
  • How do the pictures make you feel? Why?
  • Which is your favourite? Why?

Task 1

After looking at the pictures and discussing the questions above. Write down a few sentences to describe what you think is happening in the pictures. Remember it doesn’t matter if you are right or wrong! Just have a guess.

 

Task 2

Think about anything you would like to know. Do you have any questions about the pictures? Write your questions down and see if we answer them in our lesson on Wednesday.
