Friday, 17th July

 

                                                        

 

Good morning, Class 1!

Well done to each and every one of you! You’ve made it to the end of Year 1. It wasn’t the year we had planned, but I am so proud of you all and you should be proud of yourself. Today we say goodbye to Mrs Taylor and we send her on her way with all our very best wishes.  We will miss her greatly but we are proud of her for following her dream of starting her Early Years Teaching Degree.

Maths

Have a go at the Maths Mat I have added in Showbie. It has different maths problems that use lots of the skills we have learnt this year.  (Maths Mat 5 file)

 

Read the question carefully (or ask a grown-up to help) and think about what it is asking you to do. How will you solve the problem? What do you have to do?  Can you check your answer?  You can either write on the sheet in Showbie using the pen tool or print it out if you have a printer.

 

Then… Play some games in Education City.

Wild Art 2020

 

The RSPB are once again teaming up with the Cameron Bespolka Trust to bring you Wild Art 2020, and this year it’s even bigger! They are on the lookout for talented young artists to enter their exciting competition.

 

Your task is to create a piece of art inspired by nature – let your imagination run wild! There are two categories to choose from this year:

  • Real Life: entries using the more traditional approach of paints, pastels, acrylics, pens or pencil.
  • Go Wild: for those of you who want to ‘go wild’ in every sense of the word. To enter this category, experiment with textiles, sculpture, recycled and eco-friendly materials, collages – anything goes!

 

You can follow the link to the website to see some of last year’s winning entries: https://www.rspb.org.uk/fun-and-learning/for-kids/rspb-kids-competitions/wild-art/?channel=paidsearch&gclid=CjwKCAjwi_b3BRAGEiwAemPNU0MMSdcGaiBsMQKqmzBUdDtmCxdUtvdCyFmkKL0bNQxlRTCKX6du5BoCgI8QAvD_BwE

 

Prizes

For each category, the winner of each age group will receive an art gift voucher worth £100. There are also RSPB runner-up prizes for each category and age group too, so plenty of chances to WIN! The winning, runner-up and highly commended artwork will be displayed at The Society of Wildlife Artists Natural Eye exhibition from 28 October to 8 November 2020.

 

A special Richie Richardson award (and £100 book voucher) will be given for the most accurately drawn animal. The winning and runner-up artwork will also be printed in Wild Times, Wild Explorer or Wingbeat magazine.

 

Send a picture of your completed artwork to me via Showbie or email and I will enter it for you!

 

IMPORTANT: When taking a photo of your artwork, please make sure that you use natural lighting. Dark or unnatural lighting can result in distorted image colour/appearance.

We know that lots of our families would like to say thank you to others who have helped over the last few months. From the postman who delivered cards that cheered us up, to a neighbour who has done some shopping, to a doctor or nurse, a friend who called for a chat etc.

 

PinYourThanks are inviting you to enter a competition to design a pin badge to say thank you to someone who has helped you (or your wider family) over the last few months.

 

The winning entry will be turned into a real pin badge and sold, alongside other badges designed by national treasures including Ringo Starr and Joe Lycett. Every pin badge sold raises money for NHS Charities Together and Volunteering Matters.

 

Use the attached template to design your badge.

Send me your completed designs on Showbie or via email by Friday, 10th July 2020 so that I can enter them for you!

Today’s English lesson is about action words.

 

You can find it here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zxkgn9q

 

Watch the ‘Grasshopper Song’ on the Bitesize website.

 

Did you notice how the grasshoppers, bees, spiders, centipedes and other minibeasts were all dancing?

Think about some of the words that were used to describe how they danced. 

  • Write four sentences describing how they danced.
  • Highlight the action words in your writing. 

Here is an example to start you off: The grasshoppers were hopping all over the green, crunchy leaves.

Maths

Have a go at the Maths Mat I have added in Showbie. It has different maths problems that use lots of the skills we have learnt this year.  (Maths Mat 1 file)

 

Read the question carefully (or ask a grown-up to help) and think about what it is asking you to do. How will you solve the problem? What do you have to do?  Can you check your answer?  You can either write on the sheet in Showbie using the pen tool or print it out if you have a printer.

 

Then… Play some games in Education City.  You could practice telling the time, measuring or naming 2D or 3D shapes!

 

Or… Have a look at the games on Classroom Secrets Kids in the Year 1 area! https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/category/year-1/year-1-maths/maths-games-year-1-maths/  Choose any of the games on here – you could continue to work on money from last week or revise reading, writing, counting and making numbers to 100.  The free subscription has been extended until the end of term!

Today’s English lesson is reading comprehension. This is a great book – George’s Marvellous Medicine. Some of you might have heard this story before!

 

You can find it here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z87fxbk

 

Have a go at some the comprehension tasks – you can discuss them with an adult, you do no need to write down all of the answers.

 

Challenge: Use the magic potion sheet (or a plain piece of paper) to design your own magic potion. What will it be like? What will it include? How do you make it? What will it do? Use your imagination!

 

Maths

Talk with someone at home about the different coins we have in England. Which is the smallest coin in value? Which is the greatest coin in value? 

 

Investigate how many ways you can make 10p, 20p or 50p. What coins can you use to make the amount? If you don’t have this exact coin, what other coins could you add together to make the amount?

 

Choose the total you are going to work with and draw the coins you would need to make this. You could draw them into a purse/wallet or find real, paper or plastic coins. How many ways can you find to make the amount you have chosen?

 

For example: 

5p can be made using just a 5p coin

But… it could be 1p, 1p, 1p, 1p, 1p

Or even… 2p, 2p, 1p

 

Just because you have more coins it doesn’t mean you have more money!

As you try new sports and physical activities, think about the equipment you use.  How does it help you to play? How does it help you to improve? Today’s challenge is to design a new piece of sporting equipment so you can think about what small changes help you to achieve your personal best.

 

Choose a sport that uses some equipment. You may choose one you play already, or you can find out about a new sport. (I have attached a guide sheet in Showbie).

 

Think about the equipment:

How is it used? What size is it? What shape is it? Is the colour important? What materials is it made from?

The Goldfish’ 1925

Look at the picture.  What effect does the dark background have? There are lots of fish, how do you think the other fish feel about the goldfish? What makes the goldfish stand-out? What techniques you think Klee might have used to create the goldfish painting?

 

 

Read the following link with information about this picture http://www.artchive.com/1925/klee.html

 

If you have them you could use wax crayons or oil pastels to cover the whole page in a mix of bright colours, then cover the page with black oil pastel so there’s no colour seen. Using a paperclip that has been unravelled, scratch at the page to make a shape and the colour will be revealed.  Remember to be safe when using this!

 

Or you could create a drawing with bright coloured wax crayon or oil pastels, where there are some white bits left. Using a black water colour, brush over the page to create the background – the oil should resist the paint and show up.

 

If you don’t have any of these, no problem, simply using colouring pencils, felt tips, paints, sharpies, whatever you have that can be used to create colour and away you go.  You could even have a go at creating a piece on the following free app on an ipad, https://tayasui.com/sketches/   or on your computer if you have a program for art already on it.

Klee used shapes to create the image of the castle and the sun. 

 

Create your own picture using the 2D shapes that you know.  You could draw them and colour them or cut them out from card. Think carefully about adding the sun into your picture somewhere.

‘Cat and Bird’ 1928

 

 

 

 

Watch the ‘Cat and Bird’ book video link below. This was written based on the drawings of Paul Klee.  What do you notice about the illustrations in particular?  What shapes are used?  What colours are used?  Is there are moral to the story?

Time yourself to do a continuous line drawing of a face for 30 seconds only. The only rule is, you cannot take your pencil off the paper! You can go back over lines you have drawn or create new lines, but no lifting the pencil up!  How far did you get? Then have a go for 45 seconds, then a minute, and so on.   Remember it is not about finishing it quickly but having all the detail.  Then colour the picture using a similar ‘warm’ colours to the ones you can see in the picture.

Creative Afternoon

Your task today is to map your local wildlife. You could do this anywhere - on a walk, in your garden or even looking out of your window. 

 

On paper, ask an adult to help you draw a rough sketch map of the area you are going to explore, and map where you see the wildlife. Think about the key features of the area e.g. river, grass, bird feeder, bushes, trees, flowers, ponds and draw these on to your map first… 

 

Below is an idea of what a sketch map might look like… you do not need to include street names in your map as it is likely to be a smaller area! 

 

As you explore, note down the wildlife that you see and label it! For example, if I saw a dragonfly by the pond, I would mark the pond with an X and draw or write ‘dragonfly’. 

 

I have also attached a 30 days wild bingo sheet incase you would like to try this!

Creative Afternoon

 

This afternoon, your challenge is to create a habitat for some local wildlife… you may want to create a minibeast hotel, a bird nest or even a hedgehog hide! I have included some pictures below, but there are lots of ideas that I am sure you will come up with yourselves!

 

Try and use as many loose natural materials as possible. You may want to collect materials on a walk or using things around your garden! When you are finished, you could put your habitat out in your garden or somewhere on a walk for the wildlife to enjoy.

 

 

Remember to send some photos to me via Showbie or my email! Or even better, with the help of your parents and your e-safety knowledge, share your creations on Twitter with the hashtag  #30DaysWild. Don’t forget to tag us @WalfordSchool so that we can see your amazing work too!

Monday, 1st June

 

Good morning, Class 1!

I hope you have all had a fantastic half term and enjoyed the fantastic weather.  We are now in the final half term of Year 1 and I am so proud of everything you have achieved so far this year at both school and home. Keep making me smile everyone and I will look forward to hearing what you have been up to on Showbie.

PE with Joe

Visit Joe Wicks’ YouTube channel from 9am for a daily PE lesson to get you moving, and feeling energised… https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

Alternatively, you might like to try some Cosmic Yoga…

https://www.cosmickids.com/category/watch/


Phonics / English 

Choose one of the tasks… RWI phonics or English! 

 

RWI speed sound lessons will now be available at 9:30am. If you have been following along since the start set 3 sounds have now all been covered so will start repeating. For summer term 2, there are new daily films on reading longer words and blending the set 3 sounds as well as reading red words. Here is the link to the video channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ/videos 
 

Today’s English lesson is on punctuation.  Can you tell someone at home when you would use a capital letter? 

 

You can find it here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zv78jhv

 

Let's write some pirate sentences

Create a list of words that you would associate with pirates. Here are some to get you started: 

  • eye-patch
  • skull and cross bones
  • parrot

 

Once you've made your list, try writing three sentences about pirates using words from your list. Here are some examples: 

  • Some pirates wear an eye-patch over one of their eyes.
  • A pirate flag usually has a skull and cross bones on it.
  • A parrot can sit on the shoulder of a pirate.

You could draw a picture of a pirate to go with your sentences! 

 

Maths

Today’s maths lesson is on mass.  Have a look at the slides that are here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdtq2sg

 

Then you could try the Classroom Secrets game on measuring: https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/year-1-introduce-weight-and-mass-reasoning-game/

 

Or… If you have a weighing scales at home have a go at weighing some objects you can find in your house or garden. Can you compare two things? Which is heavier? Which is lighter?  How much so they weigh?

 

Or… You could weigh some ingredients for a recipe – you could make a tasty treat or have a go at the playdough recipe on the BBC Bitesize website https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdtq2sg.

 

Or… You could try the worksheet. You don’t have to print it out; you could just talk about these questions with someone at home.

Creative Afternoon

This week we are going to be taking part and doing lots of activities inspired by the 30 Days Wild Challenge. You can find out about it on the Wildlife Trust Website: https://action.wildlifetrusts.org/page/57739/petition/1

 

Today’s focus is on birds… Have any birds been visiting the bird feeder you made in our home learning science lesson? I hope that they have – keep an eye out and see if you can find out what type of birds they are! 

 

Design a new species of bird:

1. Think of your favourite birds and what you love about them. If you’re not sure, you could look at some different UK birds using the following website:

https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/wildlife-explorer/birds

 

2. Create a new species of bird with the features from the favourite birds that you chose, for example, a bird with a robin’s red breast, a kingfisher’s long beak and a mallard’s big webbed toes! You could present it any way you choose - a model, a painting, a picture or even using technology!

 

3. Give the bird a name. You might like to include some information about it also e.g. what it eats or where it is found.

 

Send some photos of your creation to me via Showbie or my email! Or even better, with the help of your parents and your e-safety knowledge, share your creations on Twitter with the hashtag  #30DaysWild. Don’t forget to tag us @WalfordSchool so that we can see your amazing work too!

The Fiver from Home project is a fun way for pupils (5-11) to imagine what business they could create with just a £5 note.

 

Fiver from Home helps children to develop key skills, including:

  • Creativity
  • Communication – written and verbal
  • Planning and organisation
  • Problem solving
  • Commercial awareness

Once they complete the workbook and activities, they even get a participation certificate to celebrate their achievement!

 

Work through the 4 parts of the Fiver from Home Workbook, completing the activities and using guiding documents.

 

The Wordguide offers explanations with relevant examples all of the terms in the workbook in case this is the first time seeing them.

For parents / carers supervising or delivering Fiver from Home, we have Top tips for Parents sheet that offers a few suggestions on how to keep your young people engaged and having fun throughout the project.

Pitch it!

In the final part of the workbook plan, write and then present a sales pitch to someone in your home.

There are plenty of tips on what to include and how to present the sales pitch in the workbook.

 

Once you have finished, share examples of your work on Showbie.

Complete the checklist and send it back on Showbie to receive a certificate.

Today’s English lesson is on the days of the week! We started to work on our days of the week spellings at the start of the spring term. Have a go!

 

Here is the lesson… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zm9hscw

 

What have you done in the last week?

Think about some of the things you've done over the past week. This could be things you've seen, things you've heard or even school work you've done.

  • Take a piece of paper and fold it in to three sections. 
  • Label each section with a day of the week - don't forget your capital letters.
  • In each section, write two things you did on that day. 

 

Here is an example:
Monday
I went for a walk with my parents.
I did some English school work.

 

 

Maths

 

Watch today’s math video on comparing the weight of items. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z428wty

 

Find pairs of objects around you to compare and work out which is the lighter of the two and which is the heavier. 

Hold one object in each hand and stretch your arms out to the side, so you are standing like a balance scale. Now compare the weights of the objects and decide which is heavier.

Try to use the words heaviest and lightest or heavier and lighter when talking about them.

 

Or… Have a go at the weights worksheet (I’ve added it in Showbie).

Or… Try the Classroom Secrets game: https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/year-1-introduce-weight-and-mass-reasoning-game/

Or… Have a go at the measuring weight games in the ‘Measuring’ folder on Education City.

In the past, we have been lucky enough to visit St Fagans Museum and have a workshop about the old toys and see all the old houses and shops.  It is a fantastic day trip and maybe an idea for a family trip in the future! 

 

In the meantime, there are lots of ideas for making your own version of some of the old toys here on their website…

https://museum.wales/traditional_toys/

 

Choose an idea and have a go!

 

Make a peg doll…

https://museum.wales/traditional_toys/peg_dolls/

 

Make a game of skittles (you might even have some plastic ones at home that you could play with?)…

https://museum.wales/traditional_toys/skittles/

 

Make a game of quoits…

https://museum.wales/traditional_toys/quoits/

You could use any empty bottles or toilet roll tubes for the sticks. See what you can find at home? You could even make some towers out of Duplo/plastic bricks? 

 

Make some marbles…

Today’s English lesson is on describing words and one-armed robot letters.

 

Here is the lesson… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbm3rj6

 

Imagine you're making a poster for a missing monster. 

  • First decide what your monster looks like.
  • Then draw a picture of your monster. 
  • Add labels to the different parts of the monster to describe its features. 
  • Try and include at least three labels on your monster and see if you can use multiple describing words together. 

 

Here are some examples: 

Six bright, blue, shiny eyes.
Three spotty, green legs.

 

Once you've finished, read through your labels and circle or highlight all the one-armed robot letters.

 

 

Maths

Watch today’s math lesson on solving measuring problems here…
https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrq98xs

 

Or… Can you find some different objects around you to measure – perhaps you could collect some sticks or leaves in your garden? You could measure in cubes or centimetres. Find the ruler from your home learning pack – be sure to check you have the correct side by looking for ‘cm’.

Or… Create some model towers out of Lego or bricks and have a go at measuring them.  Can you put them in order from shortest to tallest?

Or… Have a go at the measuring with a ruler games in the ‘Measuring’ folder on Education City.

Or… Have a go at the White Rose Problem sheet on the website – you could do these verbally and tell an adult at home the answer.

Skipping Games and Rhymes

You might like to have a go at some skipping. This was a very popular past time along time ago and some children still enjoy skipping today.  

Here are some videos and songs children used to sing:  http://www.bl.uk/playtimes/articles/an-introduction-to-skipping-games and https://www.bl.uk/playtimes/articles/skipping-games

Today’s English lesson is full stops, capital letters and joining words.

 

Here is the lesson…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmqtnrd  

 

Imagine you are teaching someone how to be a Monster Sitter. Write a list of equipment a Monster Sitter will need and then write some instructions outlining what they must do. 

You'll need to: 

  • Make sure your instructions are clear by numbering them.
  • Use capital letters at the start of each sentence and a full stop at the end.
  • Use multiple conjunctions in your instructions. These can be and, because, if and when. For example: You will need to cook the monster its food because it will be hungry. If you don't cook its food, it will get grumpy.
     

Maths

Today, we are going continue to work on measuring. Have a look at the video here… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbwc92p

Or… Can you find objects around you to measure? You could measure in cubes or centimetres. Use the ruler from your home learning pack – be sure to check you have the correct side by looking for ‘cm’.

Or… Try measuring the dinosaurs with the cubes or lego bricks? (Or something similar that you can find at home). https://bam.files.bbci.co.uk/bam/live/content/znp9d6f/pdf#sa-link_location=blocks&intlink_from_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.co.uk%2Fbitesize%2Farticles%2Fzbwc92p&intlink_ts=1589827878463-sa

VE Day!

 

Good morning Class 1,

 

Another week of home learning is complete and what a fabulous week it has been!  Today is the day for your ‘Stay at Home Street Party’.  Some more information can be found here: https://www.veday75.org  I’ve added a poster for you so you can see what events are happening throughout the day. At 11am the nation is asked to remember our Heroes before beginning the celebrations.

 

 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/poppies Can you remember when we watched this video during the Remembrance Day two minutes silence in November? You might like to use it as part of your reflection today. 

 

Do you have a message for our war heroes, like Colonel Tom Moore? You could record a video message and Tweet it @WalfordSchool @VE75 or send it us via Showbie or email.  

 

Remember, today is about spending time with your family and having fun.  I have attached some optional activities you might like to have a go at over the next few days. There is a counting in 2s and 10s VE Day sheet as well as an addition sheet. If you would like to do some writing you could use some of the Union Jack paper to write a recount of your week or VE Day celebrations. 

 

Take care and enjoy the long weekend everyone. I will look forward to hearing all about your celebrations on Monday.

 

 

Best wishes,

Today’s English lesson is a reading activity about a book called ‘Cyril and Pat’.

 

Here is the lesson… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zd8xt39

 

Have a go at answering the questions in activity 1 and 2.  You do not have to write them down you can tell them to someone at home!

 

Then have a go at activity 3…

You are going to write two sentences as Pat and two sentences as Cyril.

These questions may help you decide what to write.

  • You are Cyril. What do you think you would say at the end of the story? Remember, you used to live alone in Lake Park, then you met a new friend Pat who saved your life! Now you live happily together.
  • You are Pat. What do you think you would say at the end of the story? Remember, you found a new friend Cyril but everybody treated you differently because you were a rat. In the end, you stood up to Slim the dog, saved Cyril’s life and now you live happily together.

 

 

Maths

 

Have a go at the ‘Find my total – 20p’ problem solving sheet.

What items can you buy with 20p? You could use some coins (real or plastic) to help if you have some at home. 

 

After your game you could choose a different way of exploring the number bonds…. 

You could chalk a part, part whole model outside and put in objects (cars, apples, buttons) and record ways of making 20.

Or… Complete some activities you haven’t yet had a go at in the number bond booklet.

Or… Draw some part, part whole models on paper with 20 as the whole. How many ways can you find of making 20?

Or… Have another game of ‘Go Fish!’ or the “Bonds to 20 Bus Game’.

 

The aim is to recall the facts for making 20 but if you need resources (counters, buttons, cars) then that is fine!

Can you find out about food and rations during the war?  This video from the Imperial War Museum will tell you about life in Britain and rationing… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9wNJ78S2GY

 

Have a look at the wartime recipe book… you might like to have a go at preparing something for the party tomorrow. You could make a World War 2 cake or how about some scones?

 

Plan your party for tomorrow. Here are some ideas of things you could do…

  • Plan a menu for your party.
  • Make some decorations – see attached sheet for ideas.
  • Create up your own celebratory song!
  • Design a party hat or hair ribbon to wear for the celebration - see Bletchley Park instructions.
  • During WW2, people had to ‘make, do and mend’. You may have something that you might like to ‘upcycle’ or ‘mend’ to wear to your party like your own t-shirt.

 

Don’t forget to send some photos of your creations on Showbie today!

 

 

Rewarding Reading - Story time

Create your own colourful bunting for your ‘Stay at Home Street Party’.

Some templates and instructions can be found here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/4TrqYDyf4PMdLypxzyTwGDg/great-british-buntingBletchley Park also have a no-sew instruction guide (see attached instructions). Be creative - it is up to you how you make your bunting and what design you choose to use!

 

Whilst having fun with your bunting creations why not listen to some war time music? There is a sing-along here with song sheets and videos of some VE day songs… https://www.carradinescockneysingalong.co.uk/ve-day

Class 1

 

Learn this song “Red White and Blue”. Ask to borrow 2 wooden spoons and use them to tap them along with the children in the video. First sing the song. Then add the taps (you can tap on every colour word or choose the word red, white or blue to tap on). Then add the floor rhythms. Have fun!

Today’s English lesson is about using capital letters and full stops to write a statement.

 

Here is the lesson… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhr7mfr

 

Create a postcard…

Imagine you've been Antarctica too. Write a postcard explaining what it was like there.

  • Decide who you're writing the postcard to. It could be someone in your family, a friend or even your school teacher.
  • Make sure all your sentences include a capital letter at the start and the correct punctuation at the end.
  • Remember to finish your postcard with an ending like 'lots of love' or 'from'.

 

 

Maths

 

We are going to continue to work on our recall of facts to 20.  Find someone at home who will play this game with you…

 

Number bond ‘Go Fish!’

  • Find your blue 0-20 number cards from your home learning pack (or make some new ones).
  • Mix up the cards and place them face down so you cannot see the numbers.
  • Player 1 takes two cards – if they make 20 they keep the pair! If they do not make 20 turn them back over!
  • Player 2 takes two cards – if they make 20 they keep the pair! If they do not make 20 turn them back over!
  • Repeat until all the cards are gone!
  • The winner is the player with the most pairs.

 

 

After your game you could choose a different way of exploring the number bonds…. 

You could chalk a part, part whole model outside and put in objects (cars, apples, buttons) and record ways of making 20.

Or… Draw some part, part whole models on paper with 20 as the whole. How many ways can you find of making 20?

Or… I have attached a number bond to 20 booklet – you do not need to do all of this booklet. Pick and choose from it!

Or… You could have a go at this number bonds to 20 game… https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/year-1-number-bonds-to-20-matching-game/
