Home Learning Activities

Hello Year 1!

I hope you are all keeping safe and well. 

I am missing you all very much. 

 

Here are some activities which I have put together for you to do this week. 

Miss Rowell

Week 1 - Week beginning 1st June 2020

English

Listen to the story ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ by Giles Andreae. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pRhgZ8Jffs

Task 1 - Throughout the story, new sea creatures are introduced using short rhyming poems. Can you create a riddle about one of the sea creatures? You need to write four sentences about your animal which start hard and get easier and finish with a question.

Here is mine. Can you guess what animal it is?

I am a mammal.  

I have two fins on my side and a triangular fin on my back.

I have smooth, rubbery grey skin.

I like to jump out of the ocean.

What animal am I?

Task 2 - There are many different types of sea creature in the story. Which of the sea creatures is your favourite, and why?

 

Task 3 - There are facts about each of the sea creatures hidden within the poems. Can you choose a sea creature from the story to research and make a fact file about it?

 

Task 4 - If you could have one of the sea creatures special features or skills for a day, what would you choose, and why? (for example would you have 8 arms or be able to swim underwater for a really long time?)

 

Task 5 - See if you can invent your own sea creature and then draw a picture of it. What features would it have? Would it have any special skills? Write sentences using adjectives to describe your sea creature to your reader.

 

Maths

This week I would like you to have a go at learning to tell the time. In year 1, we focus on o’clock and half past.

 

Task 1 - Have a think about what you do at certain times of day. For example, I wake up at half past 7 and I have my lunch at 12 o’clock. Can you list what you do at different times throughout the day?

 

Task 2 - You could go on a clock hunt around the house.

  • Where can you find the time?
  • How many clocks did you find?
  • Do all the clocks look the same?
  • What does the time look like on the clock?

 

Task 3 – Thinking about seconds, minutes and hours. Write a list of activities which you do throughout the day under each heading.

For example:

Seconds – Pick up a pencil

Minutes – Brush my teeth

Hours – Sleeping

 

Task 4 – Write the time shown on the clock faces and draw the hands on the clock to show the time. Remember the minute hand is long and the hour hand is short. Find the resource below.

Phonics

Use the powerpoint to recap sounds from phase 2 and 3 daily.

Read through the igh and oa powerpoints and practise reading the real and alien words.

 

Task 1 - oa phoneme spotter – read through the story and list all the oa words. How many can you find?

Task 2 – You can either label the pictures using igh and oa words or read the words and draw your own drawing for each word.

 

Science

Did you know you can also plant leftover vegetables?

If you don’t have access to seeds and soil you might like to give this a try.

Watch this video of ways to grow your own vegetables from leftovers:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2z9G6eut8Y

Suggestions of common vegetables you can regrow from scraps include:

  • Potatoes
  • Onions
  • Leeks
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Cabbage
  • Garlic

I am going to have ago at growing my own vegetables. Look out for my pictures on Google Classroom.

Task 1 - Draw and describe how your vegetable changes over time. Try and observe the vegetable at the same time each day. 

 

Art

Look up and use your imagination.

Find a comfy spot and relax. Look up at the sky and observe the clouds. Take time to really look at them.

  • What shapes are they?
  • Are they round, flat, long, thin, fat?
  • Are any clouds close together or are they far apart?
  • Do the shapes of the clouds look like anything, anyone or anywhere such as a person, a country, a monster or an animal?

Have a go at drawing the cloud shapes on a piece of paper and then turn them into something.
