English – Phonics

As our English activity today, we are focusing on phonics. We will be looking at three alternate sounds today (more than one way of writing the same sound).

You could watch the Read Write Inc video on Set 2 and 3 sounds live at 10:00 and 10:30 here: RWI Youtube as this would a great start to this activity. Afterwards, the clip is available for 24 hours on the RWI youtube channel.

After practising some speed sounds, have a look at these sounds:

What do you notice about them? What is the same? What is different?

They all make the same sound! They use different letters though.

Sound out and blend these green words. Can you be a great detective and work out which word has which ow/oa/o-e sound?

Alternate ow oa o-e Green Words

Here are some activities you could complete if you would like to continue learning about ow, oa and o-e:

  • Monster Words – Sound out and blend the words. Draw a monster next to the words that are not real words (monster words!). Can you tell someone at home which ow/oa/o-e sound is in the word? Click here: Monster Words ow oa o-e
  • Snakes and Ladders – Roll a dice and move that amount of spaces. Sound out and blend the word before moving to the next person’s turn. If your square has a ladders, you can climb it but if it has a snake, you have to slide down. The winner is the first person to reach the finish square. See if you can tell someone at home which ow/oa/o-e sound the words have. Find the game here: Snakes and Ladders ow oa o-e
  • Write each sound on different pieces of paper and see if you can make a word that has an ay/ai/a-e sound in it. You could choose a word from the table above, or think of your own. For example:

Maths

Message from St. Mark’s maths team: ‘White Rose Maths’ are a community of lead Maths practitioners who develop Maths education by providing medium term planning and resources to schools. Within our everyday lessons at school, St Mark’s use White Rose as a basis for our Maths lessons and children are used to learning in this style. Over the last few days, White Rose have released some high quality materials for Home Learning which include a teaching video and resources for each lesson. Each day, we will give you a summary of the Maths learning and signpost you to the video we would like your child to watch which will be followed by an activity to complete. The answers will also be available if needed.

Lesson 1 – Introduce weight and mass

This is an introduction to weight. Have a look at the video together. Can you say the sentences together? ‘The ___ is heavier than the ___.’ ‘The ___ is lighter than the ___.’ 

Before having a go at the activity, can you become a human scale? Find two objects from your house, put one in each hand and stretch your arms out. Can you feel which is heavier? Can you feel which is lighter? Show what you think by lowering the hand with the heavy object and lifting the hand with the lighter object. 

 

Watch the Week 1, Lesson 1 Video Here – Weight Lesson 1

When you have watched the video, click here to access the activity: Weight Activity: Lesson 1

If you would like the answers, they are attached here: Weight Activity: Lesson 1 ANSWERS

We have prepared some extra challenges for those who would like them. You can find them here: Lesson 1 Challenges

 

Topic

RE: Today we are thinking about what it means to be sad or happy and the different colours that are associated to these feelings.

Use the slides to think about the difference between sad and happy. You will need to talk this through with someone at home. Click here: Sad and Happy

Think about a time that you were happy and a time that you were sad. Have a go at drawing these situations and colouring the border with either a sad or happy colour. You can look at Miss Jamieson’s example on the slides above if you wish. Find the activity here: RE Enquire

Good Morning Year 1

Dear parents and children,
We hope you are well and have had a lovely weekend. This week’s English is a Phonics focus. We will focus on one sound each day and explore all the different ways of writing this sound. We are really impressed with all of the fantastic learning you have done so far – well done! If you would like to hear another story from an astronaut, you can listen to Serena Auñón-Chancellor reading ‘Ada Twist Scientist’ here: Ada Twist Scientist – Astronaut Reading

Thank you again for everything you are doing.

  • Write each sound on different pieces of paper and see if you can make a word that has an ay/ai/a-e sound in it. You could choose a word from the table above, or think of your own. For example:

Maths

Today we are looking at ordering numbers to 50. You might want to remind yourself of what greater, less than and equal to mean. You can put numbers in order from smallest to largest, or largest to smallest. Have a chat with someone at home about the words ‘smallest’ and ‘largest’ and what this might look like. You can use the slides here: Ordering Numbers to 50

On these slides are some practical activities you can do for ordering numbers to 50 – you might need quite a few objects! 

If you would like to, you could print out some digit cards HERE to go alongside your groups so that you can easily remember how many there are in each group. Remember to talk about how you know which number is the biggest/smallest. You could also have a go at printing out and ordering some dienes. Find them here: Ordering Dienes

Topic

RE: This term in RE we are thinking about the concept of Sadness to Happiness. Today we are communicating this idea and thinking about what it means.

  • First use these slides to have a chat with someone at home about what this concept means: Sadness to Happiness.
  • Then have a go at this sheet. Remember to use full stops, capital letters, finger spaces and neat handwriting! RE Communicate

As our English activity today, we are focusing on phonics. We will be looking at Set 2 sounds today. You could watch the Read Write Inc video on Set 2 sounds live at 10:00 here: RWI Youtube as this would a great start to this activity. After 10:00, the clip is available for 24 hours on the RWI youtube channel. Alternatively, you could watch Mrs Baird’s Set 2 speed sound video linked attached to this post.

After practising some speed sounds, have a go at some of these activities. You can do as many or as little of them as you like but we would recommend trying at least two of them:

  • Monster Words – Sound out and blend the words. Draw a monster next to the words that are not real words (monster words!) Click here: Monster Words Set 2

  • Snakes and Ladders – Roll a dice and move that amount of spaces. Sound out and blend the word before moving to the next person’s turn. If your square has a ladders, you can climb it but if it has a snake, you have to slide down. The winner is the first person to reach the finish square. Click here: Set 2 Snakes and Ladders

  • Phonics Play: Dragons Den! Find Set 2 sounds (in either the phase 3 or phase 5 sections) or enter your own words. This game is similar to Obb and Bob as it involves sounding out and blending the words and deciding if they are real or monster. Click here: Dragons Den

  • Write a sentence using one of the words below. You could make this more exciting by using fun pens or pencils! Remember to keep your handwriting small and neat.

toy

car

fork

first

moon

might

day

see

hairy

glow

count

book

  • Make words with Set 2 sounds out of playdough or magnetic letters. You could choose a word from the table above, or think of your own.

  • Write each sound on different pieces of paper and see if you can make a word that has a Set 2 sound in it. You could choose a word from the table above, or think of your own. For example:

Maths

Today we are thinking about comparing numbers. Have a chat with someone at home about what greater and less than mean. We have covered this in school a couple of times but see if you can remind yourself. Can you tell someone at home what these symbols mean?

Use the slides here to talk about comparing numbers to 50 using greater than, less than or equal to language. There are some practical activities on the slides that you could have a go at. Slides: Maths 27.3.20

You could then work through the questions on this sheet: Maths – Friday 27th March

Topic

Heartsmart: Today we are going to be thinking about kindness. The story of The Selfish Crocodile is linked on the slides, have a listen and see if you can spot where the characters show kindness. Do they always show kindness? There is also a kindness game for you to have a go at playing at home. The song that we have chosen for this week always helps us to feel happy, we hope you enjoy it!

English

We are looking at the suffix ‘ed’ today. A suffix is a group of letters added to the end of a word that change the meaning of that word. An ‘ed’ suffix is added to the end of a word to make it past tense and show that it has already happened. For example, walk becomes walked. Use these slides to talk about different words that might have an ‘ed’ suffix. There are some activities on the slides that you could have a go at on paper.

English – Thurs 26th March ‘ed’

Maths

Today we are looking at finding one more or one less than a number from 0-50. Have a go at finding more that 20 of a group of objects. Here I have 24 buttons:

If I put another button in my pile, how many would there be? I could count them using 2’s, 5’s or 10’s or I could use a number line or 100 square to find one more. You can find a 100 square in the general resources pack in the ‘helpful reminders’ section of this post.

If I took a button away from the pile of 24, how many would there be? Again, I could count them or I could use a number line or hundred’s square to find one more.

See if you can tell someone at home about what you have done using the sentences:

‘One more than 24 is ___’

‘One less than 24 is ___’

Now have a go at the cars. I have 35 cars here:

What is one more? What is one less?

‘One more than 35 is ___’

‘One less than 35 is ___’

Here is today’s maths activity sheet for you to have a go at if you would like to continue your learning: Maths – Thurs 26th March

Topic

Computing: Today we are thinking about following a path. If you have access to an iPad or iPhone then you could download the BeeBot app which is currently free at: https://apps.apple.com/go/app/bee-boy/id500131639

Remind yourself of the buttons and how they work using this picture. Then go to the in the garden section and help Bee-Bot pollinate the flowers.

If you aren’t able to download the app, please don’t worry. You could try to create a path in your house or garden using objects or chalk to mark it out and then try to think about using words left right forward or back to follow a path. You could use another toy to represent the BeeBot. For example:
