This term, our topic is called ‘5 Go Wild’. We will be learning about different animals, their habitats and diets. We will discuss animals living in the wild and in captivity and make decisions on which we think is better and why. We will be making shadow puppet theatres and telling a ‘Wild story’ using our handmade puppets!

Daily learning guide
Learning times are only a guide, you might choose to approach each task at a different time.
9.00: Maths - Tackle the next Maths lesson in the Oak National page focusing on ‘Fractions’.
9.45: Take time to complete some work on Doodle Maths/ Doodle Tables.
10.15: Phonics time! Access the next phonics video and then try to write some of the words with today’s grapheme in. This week we will be focusing on recapping graphemes and phonemes from the phonics we have learnt so far. This is really important for when we come around to doing the phonics screening later on in the year.
10.45: Take a break. Grab a drink and a snack ready for your English lesson
11.00: English undertake the lesson each day, which will focus this week on discussion around whether it is right for animals to live in a zoo.

12.15: Lunch time.
13.15: In the afternoon we focus on our Foundation subjects.
Monday: Geography – Choose 2 animals, one which lives in our country, and one which comes from a different country. Create a fact file about these animals, telling us what they are called, the type of animal they are, where they live (their habitat), what they eat (their diet) and how they are suited to where they live (have they adapted in any way so that they can live in their environment?). Don’t forget to draw some pictures too! We can’t wait to read your fact files!
Tuesday: Music – Let’s continue to learn about the pulse in Music. https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/creating-simple-patterns-6rwk8d
Wednesday: Science – This term, we are learning about living things. We will be linking this to our ‘5 Go Wild’ topic, which focuses on animals from Africa. https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/what-is-a-living-thing-70t3ae
Thursday: PE – Join in with this ‘Wild workout’! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJGqlIa4Dbw
Friday: DT - Check out this link to watch a shadow puppet theatre performance of ‘The 3 Little Pigs’.
This term, we will be making shadow puppets and the theatre surround to show off our wonderful African animals. Can you draw a picture of what your theatre and animals will look like, then list the resources you will need to make it? If you are able to, print off the template here to show us your work: template.
Each day, take part in this exercise session with Joe Wicks! Can you continue it each day throughout lockdown to get yourself superfit?
14.30: Nearly the end of the day. Take time to read your school reading book, or a book from home to an adult or a sibling. Discuss what you have read and test each other on tricky spellings! Can you get more right than your partner?
In addition to the lessons and activities prepared by your teachers, all children have unlimited access to a number of learning apps. In Year 1 these apps are:
You should have logins for all three of these sites, and you will be used to using them at school. Try to use them daily to help improve your Maths, reading and Spelling skills. They are all free to use and work on pretty much any online device - including many mobile phones.
If you have any problems logging on, please either contact your class teacher via the class email address or contact Silverdale tech support at: firstname.lastname@example.org
