Year 1

Welcome to Year 1, please click on the links to the left to access your class page.

We understand that some of you are having difficulty accessing Purple Mash. If so, please can you try the activity at a different time in the day as it is most likely because of the amount of people trying to access it at the same time. 

Please note that the daily activities can be completed in any order.

Cursive Handwriting Resources

Handwriting practice resources can be found below if you want to have a go at home! We already know lots of you are working hard with your cursive handwriting as you complete the home learning tasks. We have been very impressed!

You will also find attached a resource that provides rhymes that will help you form each letter. You will see the ‘f’ and ‘x’ have a different rhyme. We form these a little differently to what is on the document. Please refer to the ‘handwriting resources’ to see the correct formation of each letter.

Daily Learning Information

Dear parents and carers, 
As you are aware, there are now more children beginning to attend school. In order to accommodate this, more staff are also in school, meaning that there are fewer staff monitoring home learning. As previously, all work uploaded to Showbie or completed on Purple Mash will be marked and there will be feedback but this will no longer be every day and it may not be from your child’s class teacher.  There also will be less work to upload or complete on Showbie or Purple Mash.
Thank you for your continued support in these unprecedented times.

Warrington Wolves Sports Week

Today, your daily challenge is to complete your daily mile (this could be a couple of laps around your garden) and a ‘star jump’ challenge. 

How many star jumps can you do in 60 seconds? Count the jumps and submit the score to Showbie. 

Good Luck!

English

Paddington loves going on adventures and visiting different places. Today, we would like you to use your imagination and draw/write your own Paddington Story. We would like you to imagine that he is visiting Warrington!

Think about the following things:

How does Paddington get to Warrington?

Does he stay at your house or in a hotel?

Where does he visit?

What problems does he face?

How are they solved?

How does he get back to London?

Follow the steps and extra information on the storyboard to help you. You might find it helpful to draw your pictures first and then go back and write your sentences. Upload to Showbie, once you have finished.

How far can you jump? Measure the distance that you have jumped and submit to Showbie. 

Good Luck!

English

This week, our focus is on ‘Paddington Bear. Today, we are going to be using joining words such as ‘and’, ‘but’ and ‘because’. These words are also called conjunctions and they help us to extend and join our sentences.

Watch a short clip from the film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCgnuhb45ik

While you watch the film, think about how Paddington is feeling and why.

Now look at the pictures. Next to each picture, write a sentence, using the conjunctions (joining words) to extend your sentences. The sentence starters have already been added on the template below, if you wish to use them or you can write your own sentences about the pictures.

Computing

Login to Purple Mash and complete the 2Do. 

Your 2Do is to help you develop your coding skills and we would like you to have a go at the ‘Bubbles’ activity.

You may have tried this activity before in school, but it was a while ago and it is always good to remind ourselves and keep practising!

Once you have completed and submitted the ‘Bubbles’  2Do, you might want to choose one of the other coding games to play, to challenge yourself. You could try the ‘Air Traffic Control’, ‘Snail Race’ or ‘Vehicles’. Remember to watch the video at the beginning carefully. This gives you the instructions which will help you to complete the activity.

 

 
 
Monday 13th July 2020

This week, our English tasks will be based around ‘Paddington Bear’.

Have you read any of the Paddington books or watched any of the films?

Today, we are going to use our adjectives to describe Paddington Bear.

Look at the photograph of Paddington:

Task 1:

Think of adjectives that you could use to describe Paddington, e.g. brown fur. You could print the picture of Paddington and label this or you could write your adjectives in a list.

Task 2:

Use your adjectives to write sentences to describe Paddington Bear. Try to use ‘and’ to join your sentences. Don’t forget to use your capital letters, full stops and very best handwriting!

Paddington has soft, brown fur and wears a beautiful, red hat.                                  

Challenge:

You might also be able to use ‘but’ to join your sentences:

He is wearing a thick blue coat, but no shoes or socks!

Maths

We have given you the task of learning your number bonds to 20 for the first 2 weeks of this half term. For the next 3 weeks, we are going to focus on counting in 2s, 5s, and 10s to 100. Last term, your target was to count forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s to 50. This term we would like you to carry on to 100. 

Today, we would like you to focus on counting in 10s. Your task is to count forwards and backwards in 10s to and from 100. Remember, the pattern for 10s is a 0 on the end of each number with the tens number just increasing by 1 each time. Just try your best. You may need a few practises before you feel confident. You may only feel confident at the end of the term, but that is absolutely fine. 

Feel free to use the link below to use a 100 square to help you learn. You can paint the squares as you count. 

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/paint-the-squares  

Spellings

On Monday, you were given 10 high frequency word spellings. 

Have a go at the spelling test on Purple Mash. Go to the 2Do section and select ‘10.7.20 spelling test’.

Reading

Read something of your choice. This could be a book that you have at home or a magazine. The choice is yours! Maybe you could find a non-fiction book about the human body or our other science work?

RE

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been thinking about the beautiful world that God created. Today we are going to think about how important it is to look after our environment. Unfortunately, some people don’t take care of places and spoil God’s beautiful creation.

Look at the pictures: Damaging the Environment Pictures

How do the pictures make you feel? How do you think they would make God feel if he was to see them?

Today, we would like you to design a poster to stop people from spoiling God’s beautiful creation. You could choose to focus on one area (cutting down trees, polluting the oceans, dropping litter) or make a poster about a couple of the different problems. 

You can create your poster however you want to but you must include pictures and a couple of sentences explaining what is happening and why it must stop. 

Upload your posters to Showbie once you have finished. We can’t wait to see them!
