Hello!
This little activity is from Colette who works for the Road Safety Team in Wirral Council.
Walking and cycling have become a big part of many people’s lives as we look to become healthier, fitter and look after the environment we live in. With schools returning soon we wanted to provide a small activity for Key Stage 1 pupils to get them thinking about Road Safety and the Green Cross Code.

Children can find out more about the Green Cross Code and lots more about how to keep safe when they are on or near roads in the booklet Tales of the Road which you can download here using this link and save their own copy with their name on it!

Later on they could print and draw on or use the camera roll edit to edit their work and draw on their shape. The class will share with each other the 2D shapes they have found on class dojos and begin to identify some of the properties of the shapes. Here are some examples I have put together, good luck Year 1 I cannot wait to see the shapes you find in your environment!

You can make sound effects using voices or any instruments you have at home, if you do not wish to make one. Complete the sheet writing down what you have used to join in with the song.

 

An example instrument you could make is using rice, pasta or anything you have at home and putting it in a bottle. This will create a rattle like sound. Here is a link with further examples and how to make them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWJALMLziOQ

I have attached the gateway keys that we will be assessing your child’s work against and in a couple of weeks we will be revisiting these keys along with the mastery keys after the teacher on the videos have taught them.

 

Writing Unit - Honey and Trouble

Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnhmxNoo4EY from 4:13 to the end to find out how we get honey from the bees to jars that we eat it from. In our story there is a market that sells honey. Here is a market scene.

Ask your child the following questions: Where do you think this market is? What noises might you hear? There is a lot of food being sold here, what might you smell? What can you see? How do you think the people at the market feel?

 

 

Last week we briefly looked at adjectives (describing words). Make sure you use adjectives in your writing today!

 

Independent task: Write a short description of the image

Share the gateway keys with your child for thigs they should try to include in their writing:

Theme - Miss O'Rourke's music - listen and respond to a range of high-quality live and recorded music and songs.

 

Watch the following short video clip that explains how to respond to music: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/bring-the-noise/thunder-jam-weather/zk6pxyc 

 

Here is the four seasons classical music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1hEszuZ4lo Ask your child to complete the table below describing what they hear and guessing the seasons of weather. The last part requires your child to use comparing vocabulary to compare the different pieces relating to the speed and moods. 

 

 

Keeping skills - Miss O'Rourke's number bonds

Mathematics Trail -

Before heading outside, the children need to choose from the list of given a list of sums for them to complete using outdoor resources (sums can range in difficulty). 

List of example sums:

?+3=10 (if your child struggles with this question you could continue with missing number bond to 10 questions).

5+?=20 (if your child can do the missing number bond to 10 questions after some tries challenge with these missing number bond to 20 questions).

Can you collect your resources from the ground and display the amounts in a table?

How many tens and ones does 54 have.

Once outside, the children must use items that they find to help them figure out the answer to the sums. For example, working out number bonds to 10.  The children collect 10 leaves and show different number bonds that add up to 10. 

You can then scaffold, support and push learning using the different questions depending on how the children are coping with the task. However, please begin with number bonds to 10 and then progress if your child is confident. Here are some pictures demonstrating the outdoor activities the children could engage in.

Phonics - alternative 'ai' 

 

Watch the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmKy7qLZNBo

 

Miss O'Rourke's Phonics Challenge:

 

Your child can roll a dice and read a word from the row matching the dice they have rolled. You can make a dice or adapt to what you have at home to play the game. Once words are read your child can then choose words of their choice and write and draw a picture to match. An extra challenge could be to demonstrate understanding of the a phoneme from the video and write those down too!

 

English – Create a verse to a song about travelling with the whale

 

 

Recap the story so far. Think about the whale’s song. Why is he singing to the snail? What does he sing about?  

 

Watch the video of the song ‘Come with me under the sea’ from CBeebies Something Special (from 3:35-6:23): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFqAWhN2wFA 

 

Look closely at the lyrics together:

 

Come with me, under the sea

Come with me, underneath the water

Come with me, under the sea

 

Where there are lots of animals

I see a fish, swimming along beside me

Do you see a fish, swimming along beside me?

I’m sure I saw a fish, go swimming by me!

 

Come with me, under the sea…

 

I see an octopus waving all his tentacles,

Do you see an octopus waving all his tentacles?

I’m sure I saw an octopus, waving right back at me!

 

Come with me, under the sea…

 

I see a crab, scuttling quickly sideways,

Do you see a crab, scuttling quickly sideways?

I’m sure I saw a crab go scuttling by me!

 

Come with me, under the sea…

 

I see a dolphin, leaping gracefully,

Do you see a dolphin, leaping gracefully?

I’m sure I saw a dolphin leaping right out of the sea!

It’s about time we got back to the top

 

So say goodbye to your friends, under the sea…

 

Watch Blue Planet video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_38JDGnr0vA

 

Discuss what you saw and ask your child can draw and label pictures of things you have talked about.

 

Ask your child: If the whale was going to continue singing his song, telling the snail all the other wonderful things she could see on the journey, what might he tell her about?

 

Use inspiration from the video or children’s own connections to things they have seen when they have travelled to share writing a verse for a song, inspired by the tune and rhythm of the song they heard, with a repeating chorus.

 

Here is Mrs Eason’s example:

 

(Chorus)

Come with me, on a journey, Come with me, we’ll sail across the water. Come with me, on a journey, There’s wonderful and special things to see…

 

(Verse)

We’ll see turtles, gliding, diving turtles, Would you like to see turtles? Gliding, diving turtles? Come and see the turtles diving up out of the sea!

 

Task: Work together to create a verse for a song.

I will collate the verses and we will have a class song. Today’s activity is a speaking and listening activity you can scribe for your child using their ideas.

Phonics - alternative 'igh' graphemes 

Watch the following:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31SNwBMMLJw

 

Challenge:

Write labels using the alternative 'igh' sounds for each picture.

 

Answers:

 

English – Write persuasive sentences

 

 

Watch the following video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmMnaSkeKqQup to 2:01 and stop the video.

 

Look back at the text on this spread from ‘This is the whale who came one night…’ to “Come sail with me.” Do they think the snail should go with the whale? What words does the whale use to entice the snail to go with him?

 

Ask your child to point out the words and phrases that the whale sang about talk about why these might be persuasive. Discuss how adjectives are used to add to the richness of the whale’s description and make the journey sound magical and exciting.

 

The snail’s family do not want the snail to go travelling around the world because they will miss her and the worry about her.

                                           

 

 

Task 1: Your child will now be in role as the snail. You will pretend to be a family member of the snail. Tell the snail your reasons why she should stay. Now swap roles and become the whale and tell them why should go travelling.

 

Ask your child which viewpoints stick in their memory. What was most persuasive about these statements?

 

Task 2: Write their opinion on whether she should stay or go. Write about what the snail might enjoy doing if they make that choice.

 

Greater depth challenge: Explain why they should make that choice. Use adjectives like the author did.

Phonics Challenge:

Ask your child to read through the following text and list any words that have the split digraph e_e.

 

English – Write a thought bubble from a character’s point of view

 

 

Watch the following video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmMnaSkeKqQ up to 1:26 and stop the video.

                           

 

Look back at the phrase ‘This is a snail with an itchy foot.’ What does this mean? Look at the clever use of idiom here; the snail’s underside is called its foot and the idiom to get itchy feet means to want to travel or do something different.

 

Ask your child: Why do they think she wants to travel? Where do they think she might like to go?

 

Use a globe or a world map to look at the choices the snail has.

 

Ask your child to draw a picture of a snail and a thought bubble in their lined book. Write a thought bubble for the snail. Remind your child to use their Phonics learning for their writing. If they have come across the any tricky words or phonemes during Phonics sessions, they should be applying that knowledge.

Miss O'Rourke's Phonics challenge –review

 

Watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_RO2ajxOgQ

 

Phonics Challenge:

Match the words to the correct picture.

 

English –find spelling patterns in the text

 

 

Watch the following video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmMnaSkeKqQ up to 0:50 seconds.

 

Stop the video and ask: Who is this character? Where have you seen snails before? Where were they? What were they like? Have they heard of sea snails before? What do they already know about them?

 

Now show the children a video of a sea snail in action, such as: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enPACKaL4ZQ&feature=youtu.be

 

Encourage your child to look closely at the snail; what does it look like? How does it move? You might discuss the similarities and differences between the sea snail and garden snails the children may be more familiar with.

 

Ask your child to spot any words with the alternative ‘ai’ sounds in them. Ask them are they all spelt with the same letters?  Ask the sort them into different columns.

 

ai

a_e

ea

ey

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Words from text to sort: tale, snail, great, grey, whale, sail, gazed

 

Greater depth challenge: Look for rhyming words like snail and tale. Write down some more rhyming words e.g  snail, sail, pail, fail, hail, sale, gale.

Ask your child if they notice anything about sail and sale. They sound the same but are spelt differently. This is called a homophone.

English – write sentences in speech bubble

 

Show your child the following picture of the cover image with the text removed:

 

Ask them to look at the picture and talk about what they can see. As they tell you their idea note them down so they can see you writing too.

 

Now engage in some wider talk about what they see, encouraging the children to predict with questions such as: Who do you think the main characters are? What do you think will happen in this story? Does this remind you of any other stories you know? What questions do you have about what is happening? Scribe your child’s responses and place them somewhere your child can see them for next two weeks.

 

Reveal the title to your child and see if they can read any of the words in the title:

 

 

Ask your child to take on the role of one of the animals shown. They can write a label for themselves and one for you. Ask your child: If the characters/animals were speaking what might they be saying? Give them some time to reflect and prepare their ideas. Take it turns to talk being in character as that animal.

 

Independent task: write a sentence in a speech bubble. What might your chosen character say?

Phonics – split digraph o_e

 

Watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOajky46znQ 

 

Phonics Challenge:

Look at these pictures and write down the word using the new split digraph o_e or i_e.

 

Answers:

 

English – edit and improve our work

 

Before you begin your child will need another colour pen or pencil (we use green pen at school but don’t worry if you haven’t got a green pen).

 

Read through your child’s story together. See if your child can spot things that they can improve such as as letters written or formed incorrectly (backwards letters).  Your child will use their coloured pen to improve their work. Check their capital letters, full stops, use a question mark. If they have forgotten spaces between words pick out one sentence that they can rewrite using spaces.

 

Check the gateway and mastery keys as you read through and you can tick (imaginary ticks on the screen if you do not have a printer) the ones that your child has achieved.

 

Maths – End of unit test addition and subtraction

This should be completed by your child independently. If your child requires a scribe that is fine but please do not help them with the Maths to begin with. You should read each question to your child and then they work it out and write an answer. Once your child has completed the test you can go through each question while they use a different colour pen/pencil (we use green in school) to correct or not if they have got the correct answer.

 

End of unit test:

If your child found this unit tricky here are some suggested strengthening activities, you can do with them:

Strengthen materials

If your child has shown a strong understanding of this unit here are some deepening activities, they can do:

Deepen thinking materials

Theme – Picture News-What is a leader?

 

Ask your child: have you heard of the word ‘leader’ before? What do you think a leader is? Have you ever had someone who has been chosen to lead your line to assembly or out to play? Have you ever played a game of follow my leader?

 

Discuss what the leader’s job is in each of these situations e.g. to set an example for everyone, to be in charge, to make up the movements for everyone else to follow. Explain that a leader is a person who is in charge of a group, organisation or country. They lead or command the people who are in that group, organisation or country.

 

Look at the following picture which gives some examples of leaders.

 

 

Ask your child: Have you come across any of these before? Can you think of any other examples of leaders? Have you ever been a leader e.g. at school, in a club, at home? What was it like? Did you enjoy it? If you have never been a leader, would you like to be? Why?

 

As a leader, you are in charge of other people. Do you think this would be a hard or easy job? Do you think a leader who bosses people around and tells them what to do all the time is a good leader?

 

Reflection

A leader is someone who leads or commands a group, organisation or country. Some people want to be a leader, others do not. Being a leader is a responsibility but a good leader can really make a difference!

 

Task: Can you think of someone who has led you? Were they a good leader? Why? Draw a picture of a leader that leads you for example: dance leader, football coach, parents, Sunday school leader or rainbow/scout leader. Write sentence about what makes them a good leader.

 

 

Art and Design –creating clouds

 

Look at artist Berndnaut Smilde’s moving cloud installations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bat_yMCcMCU up to 1 minute 28 seconds.

Theme – Picture News – Should anyone be allowed to buy a pet?

                        

Question: What types of animals do people keep as pets?

Listen, think, share

• Think of as many animals as possible and create a list together e.g. cat, dog, elephant, hawk, spider.

• Which of the animals listed do you think could be described as pets? Explain that a pet is an animal that we often keep in our homes. They are usually tame and are kept for companionship or pleasure.

• Look at the following pictures, which shares some examples of popular pets. Can you name each pet? Do you have a pet? If you could choose, which pet would you like to keep? Why? Can you order the animals from your most favourite to your least favourite?

• Sometimes people keep animals as pets that we might not think are pets such as hens, pigs, sheep and other farm animals or wild animals such as hedgehogs or snails. Do you know anyone who has an unsual pet?

• If someone decides to keep a pet, what do you think they need to do to make sure it is looked after? For example provide food and water, shelter, exercise, medical care. Discuss that all pets are different so need different amounts of care, space, time and attention.

Reflection

There are many different pets we can choose to look after. Where we live, how much time we have and what animals we like can help us decide if we should have a pet and what type of pet we can care for.

Tell your child they will be writing a sentence or sentences to describe the image. Remind them that sentences need a capital letter, spaces between words and a full stop.  Here is Mrs Eason’s example:

 

 

Use the labels written earlier to verbally construct a sentence using the word ‘and’ to join two words for the sunset image above. Please ask your child to write their sentence in their lined book.

 

English Challenge: Look at the other image with the animals in the setting. Extend ideas about each subject i.e. Giraffes run fast down the hill and they gallop towards the sunset. Their necks are long and they are covered in brown patches.

If we add white to a colour, we can make tints.

 

Paul Klee was an artist who experimented with all different types of colour.

Paint with tints. Use an A4 piece of paper and lightly draw lines to create blocks like the image above (shade painting) Then:

  1. Paint the top strip on your paper in your chosen colour. Swish, wipe and blot your brush.
  2. Now mix some white paint in to your colour to make a tint. Notice how the paint turns lighter. Paint the next strip down in this colour.
  3. Carry on mixing a little white with your colour and painting a strip until all your strips have been painted in tints. Don’t forget to swish, wipe and blot!

Creative / Mindfulness task: Make a calming glitter Bottle

Preparation

  • Fill a bottle or jar with water, leaving 2-3 cm of space at the top.
  • Add a generous amount of glitter glue to the bottle (or a combination of PVC glue and regular glitter).
  • Seal the bottle well!

Directions

  • Shake the bottle well to mix the glitter, water and glue and repeat these words as you shake it… “Imagine that the glitter is like my thoughts when I’m stressed, mad or upset. See how they whirl around and make it really hard to see clearly? That’s why it’s so easy to make silly decisions when I’m upset because I’m not thinking clearly. Don’t worry this is normal and it happens in all of us.”
  • Now put the jar down and watch what happens when you’re still for a couple of moments. Keep watching. See how the glitter starts to settle and the water clears? Your mind works the same way. When you’re calm for a little while, your thoughts start to settle and you start to see things much clearer.”

Spring Break Challenges

Throughout the two week break please continue to work on your on-line core skills as these will be so important to you when we return to school:

  • TTRS
  • Numbots
  • Bug Club
  • Nessy

Maths:

We are going to take a break from the White Rose Hub lessons for these two weeks to allow everyone to have a break and those who didn’t start at the same time to catch up. We finished on Week 2 Lesson 4 Step 3 – Add Equal Groups. However White Rose have added some great fun maths lessons that they are updating each day to keep you going throughout the holidays if you would like to try any. Click here to try them out: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/easter-fun/

 

Science – Lost and Found - Materials

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNgh3Q58QoI – listen to the story Lost and Found using the link to YouTube.

Look at the tasks below and select which one you would like to investigate – you can of course choose more than one if you like.

 

Before you start watch this video to ensure the children have a good understanding of what materials are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAkQT1IgNdU

 

Task option 1:

In the story the boy and the penguin have to travel across the sea to the South Pole. Can you investigate what materials would be suitable to make a boat out of? Could you have a go at making different boats using materials around the house and test them?

Remember:

Your boat needs to float – which materials around your house float? Which sink?

Your boat needs to be waterproof – what does this mean?

Your boat needs to hold the boy and the penguin so it needs to be strong – can you add a small weight to your boat to test it?

 

Task option 2:

Research how do penguins stay warm in the freezing weather? - Can you show your research in some way. 

Thinking about this how could the boy keep himself warm? What materials would work best? Can you design an outfit for the boy on his journey?

Draw your design and label the different materials you have used and why you have chosen them.

Spring Break

Now we have reached the Spring Break, we think everyone needs a well deserved rest (teachers, pupils and parents !!), therefore we will not be setting daily tasks on the website. However, we will set a project to complete over the two week holiday as we normally do. As with any holiday period we still expect children to access online learning at home (for help with logins etc check the info page by clicking here). Teachers will not be checking who is going on this daily but will check at the end of the two week holiday.


Please feel free to still add photographs and videos to Tapestry/Dojos as the staff would love to see what the children are getting up to and we know the home school link is now more important than ever. Staff won't be responding to these but will add them to the children's online portfolio.


Daily tasks will resume on the website on 20th April.


Mrs O'Neil Edwards will also be adding a headteacher's challenge to the website for children to work on over the two week holiday.

Maths Update:

As the messages said yesterday, please do not use the Power Maths books, put them somewhere safe in your house and keep them there until the schools re-open.

 

White Rose Hub are a team of teachers and mathematicians who have for a number of years been supporting schools with planning, lesson ideas and resources of a very high standard.

 

They have just released a website to support all those children who are affected by the school closures with a daily lesson which includes:

  • A short 'teaching' video to watch first which explains the daily topic.
  • A number of activities to practice this skill and a few to challenge you further.
  • The answers for these activities which also shows how they worked out these answers.

These lessons are released every Monday and are organised by Year group (from Foundation Stage through to Year 6)

 

If you don't have printer at home, just use whatever paper you have and write the question out yourself.  Remember, it's all about having a go and doing your best, don't worry if you get stuck and don't give up because as each day goes by they will be going over the same topic / skill and you will get there πŸ‘πŸ».

 

You do not need a login or password, just click here or visit (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/)
