Wednesday 8th July 2020

Good morning Year 1. Hope you enjoyed your day yesterday and have had a good sleep. The weather seems to be getting hot again so make sure you get a chance to go outside and enjoy yourself if you can. This week seems to be flying by and we are not far from the end of term so keep up your home learning if you can as there is not long left now until the summer holidays!

Here is your home learning for today:

1. Maths Task 1 - please complete up to 30 minutes on Mathletics https://login.mathletics.com/. The tasks have been assigned for you to do.

2. Maths Task 2- We are continuing with our White Rose maths week 8. All the attachments you will need for the week will be attached at the bottom of the page for you to access.

  • Please go tohttps://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
  • Please click on Summer - Week 9 w/c 22nd June
  • Monday- Lesson 1: Counting to 100.
  • Tuesday Lesson 2: Partitioning numbers.
  • Wednesday- Lesson 3: Comparing numbers.
  • Thursday- Lesson 4: Comparing numbers 2.
  • Friday- Maths Challenge (No sheet to download, access this via the website above, week 9)

**Remember to watch the video first then download the activity sheet from the bottom of this page, then check your answers as usual from the answer sheet at the bottom of this page.**

3. English Task 1 – Please complete 15 minutes practise on Spelling Frame https://spellingframe.co.uk/

4. English Task 2 Learning Objective: To investigate rhyming words.

Success Criteria:

  • Read the word.
  • Identify the words that rhyme and the words that don’t.
  • Think of extra words that rhyme.

Task:

Today I would like you to go back to the Hickory Dickory Dock story attached at the bottom of the page and re-read this version, looking at all the creatures that run up the clock.

Then look at Number Name Rhymes sheet below. Look at the first digit, 1, and write in the number name – one. Read each of the rhyming words for one and neatly cross out the word that does not rhyme with one (phone).  Repeat for the numbers two to ten: What do you notice about the spellings of the rhyming words? Do they have to be spelt the same way to rhyme? No! It is the sound that matters.

Look again at the Number Name Rhymes page. o For each number, add as many further rhymes of your own as you can. If you are stuck you can use https://www.poetry4kids.com/rhymes/ to help you. Add at least two rhymes to every number except 7 and 11. Keep your page of Number Name Rhymes for tomorrow.

**Extra**

Do you have any clocks or watches in your house? Go on a clock hunt and see how many you can find. Draw a small picture of a mouse and secretly put/stick him next to one of the clocks. How long is it before someone spots him? Move him to another of the clocks and see what happens!

**Extra Transition Activity**

Normally at this time of year we would be having transition mornings to meet our new teacher for next year. Unfortunately, we can't have those this year as, so many of us are not back into school and now that you know what your classes for next year will be I thought we could do an activity based on our transition into Year 2! Usually during those transition morning your new teacher will set activities to help them get to know you, so I have found a booklet that you could do and give to them in September! I have attached it at the bottom of the page for you to print or have a look at. Remember if you can't print you could make your own poster or mini booklet all about you to give to your new teacher in September! 

Tuesday 7th July 2020

Hi Year 1. Hope you were able to get back into your home learning well yesterday and are ready for another day today! I have a busy day today because I have my mum and brother’s birthday today. Isn’t it weird that they are born on the same day? Do you know anyone who is born on the same day? I will pop over for a cup of tea and a piece of cake later to give them their gifts. It is strange celebrating a birthday during this unusual time, I wonder if any of you have had birthdays during lockdown.

Here is your home learning for today:

1. Maths Task 1 - please complete up to 30 minutes on Mathletics https://login.mathletics.com/. The tasks have been assigned for you to do.

2. Maths Task 2- We are continuing with our White Rose maths week 8. All the attachments you will need for the week will be attached at the bottom of the page for you to access.

3. English Task 1 – Please complete 15 minutes practise on Spelling Frame https://spellingframe.co.uk/.

4. English Task 2 Learning Objective: To order the events of a rhyme.

Success Criteria:

  • Look at each card.
  • Check the rhyme order by re-reading.
  • Order the cards or draw the cards in order.
  • Retell the rhyme.

Task:

Today I would like you to start by reading the longer version of Hickory Dickory Dock (attached at the bottom of the page). Name one thing that is the same as and one thing that is different to the version of the rhyme you heard yesterday. Record your thoughts on paper using the comparison sheet below.

Then go to https://hamiltontrust-live-b211b12a2ca14cbb94d6-36f68d2.diviomedia.net/documents/GR_Hickory_Dickory_Dock.mp3 and listen to the recital of the longer version of Hickory Dickory Dock. Did you like the way the rhyme was recited? What did you like? Do you prefer reading the illustrated version or listening to the oral recital? Say why.

Now look at the Hickory Dickory animal picture cards, can you work out what order they should be in? Read the rhyme again if you get stuck. Don’t worry if you can’t print out the cards and cut them up, you could always divide your page into boxes and draw each picture in the order as a storyboard.

**Extra**

What is the best bit in this version of the rhyme? Draw that scene and underneath, write out the lines that go with just that part of the rhyme (The clock struck seven, Wasp flew to Devon, etc.). Remember to use your best handwriting and word spacing for the lines.

**Extra Geography Activity**

For this activity we are going to log back on to the Oddizzi website (link below) and this week focuses on our country, the United Kingdom. Why don't you have a look and explore the activities?

https://www.oddizzi.com/teachers/learning-zone/

The suggested activity sheet (attached at the bottom of the page) has the log in information on. Why don’t you explore and see what you can find out? There are quizzes, facts to read, challenges to answer and lots more!

Monday 6th July 2020

Hello Year 1 and welcome back after the weekend. Did you enjoy your days off? I was quite busy and bought some herbs to give my mum for her birthday and Mr Stokes made her a planter too! I also did a second coat of paint on my garden table and cooked a roast dinner too. Well hopefully you had fun and were able to relax over the weekend. Now we need to get back to our home learning this week and it is our last full week as, next week is only four days!

Here is your home learning for today:

1. Maths Task 1 - please complete up to 30 minutes on Mathletics https://login.mathletics.com/. The tasks have been assigned for you to do.

4. English Task 2 Learning Objective: To compare two poems.

Success Criteria:

  • Read the rhyme.
  • Read the poem.
  • Read the statements and tick if true/cross if false.
  • Which poem/rhyme do you prefer?

Task:

Today I would like you to go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0389khc and listen to the traditional rhyme, Hickory Dickory Dock. Then listen again, joining in with as many of the words as you can.

Now copy out Hickory Dickory Dock in your best handwriting on paper and add some pictures. Then start to learn the rhyme off by heart.

Next read the poem No Hickory, No Dickory, No Dock by John Agard. Look at the statements on the Comparisons chart. Think about Hickory Dickory Dock and No Hickory, No Dickory, No Dock. Put a tick or a cross against each statement.

**Extra**

You could recite Hickory Dickory Dock to your family. Why don’t you think of actions that you could add to your recital to go with different lines or parts of the rhyme?
