Here is an introduction to this week's learning
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 which follows on from last week’s learning, 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 continue to focus this week on discussion around whether it is right for animals to live in a zoo.
12.00: Time to log on and complete some work on Spelling Shed
12.15: Lunch time.
13.15: In the afternoon we focus on our Foundation subjects.
Monday: Geography – Watch the Geography power point here: WEEK2-Geography-AnimalHabitatPowerpoint.ppt. Draw lines to match the animal to its habitat on this sheet: WEEK2-Geography.pdf, then write a sentence to tell us what the animal is and where it lives. As a challenge, write a sentence to tell us why the animal is suited to its habitat.
Tuesday: Music – Let’s continue to learn about the pulse in Music. https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/understanding-how-sound-is-represented-by-symbols-64w62t
Wednesday: PE - Join in with this ‘Wild workout’! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJGqlIa4Dbw
Thursday: Science - World Book Day – In school, we are all focusing on the book ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. Can you read the book (find the link to it below) and list how many different types of plants can you see in the book? How many animals? How many different habitats?
Friday: DT - Look at your shadow puppet theatre planning from last week. Choose 2 animals that you would like to include in your puppet show. Use 2D shapes to create the shape of your animal. Draw around these onto cardboard and cut them out carefully. Attach your animal template to a lolly stick, straw or pipe cleaner using glue or sellotape. Send us the photographs of your fabulous puppets. We can’t wait to see them!
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
