Mrs Bagshaw will also be hoping to contact you by telephone over the course of the coming week just to have a catch-up with yourselves and the children and see how things are going.  As always, please feel free to drop me an email any time if you have any concerns or would like me to give you a call.  I am always very happy to hear from you and if you'd like to send photos of your children's work, I can post it onto our class page.

My email address is stpcdeputy@icloud.com

Please find below the children's work for this week.

Love to everyone,

Maths Work Week beginning 18th May 2020

This week's focus is on Position & Direction

This consolidates previous work on fractions and involves the children being able to understand direction - forwards, backwards, a full turn, half a turn, a quarter turn and a three quarter turn.  They need to understand that 2 half turns make a full turn, that 4 quarter turns make a full turn and that 2 quarter turns make half a turn.  Through lots of practical activity, we would hope that the children also become  confident in knowing their left and right.  The terms clockwise and anti-clockwise can be used too.

Along with work on direction, positional language such as above, below, under, in front of, behind etc... can be used.

This is a unit where mathematical vocabulary and language are really important so I would suggest that the more discussion you have with your child, the better they will understand.

It isn't necessary to record anything on paper unless you wish to do so, as the children will learn better through practical activities and discussion.

One nice idea is to create a path in your garden with obstacles in the way.  Ask your child to give you instructions to direct you through it, using the correct terminiology.  You can then then create a path for your child to follow, following your instructions.

They could also create a real life 4x4 grid in the garden or on paper with different objects in each square and play a game like, "What object is 2 squares below the teddy bear?" etc...

I've uploaded a couple of Education City activities and attached the Focus Maths planning that accompanies this unit but as always, feel free to supplement/replace any activities with ideas form elsewhere.

 

 

English Work for Week Beginning 18th May 2020

This week we are going to write a set of our own instructions, telling someone how to take part in an Egg & Spoon race.

Activity 1 - Get everything you will need for an egg and spoon race.   In your book or on paper, draw a detailed picture of each thing and label them.

Activity 2 - Take the things you need and go outside with your mum or dad and any brothers and sisters who may want to take part. Put the things you need on the ground next to you. Your job is to give everyone the right instructions to take part in an Egg & Spoon race.  Remember that your instructions have to start with a bossy word and be very clear.  The runners in the race are not allowed to do anything unless you tell them to!

Activity 3 - Talk over with your mum or dad the instructions that you gave yesterday to the runners.  Write each instruction down remembering to;

a) Put a number at the start of each sentence.

b) Start each sentence with a bossy word.

c) Put your sentences in order.

d) Put capital letters and full stops in the right place.

e) Start all your letters on the line.

f) Use lead-ins

g) Make your letters the right size

h) Make all capital letters tall

i) See if you can spot any common exception words

 

Finally, draw a  picture of an egg and spoon race, remembering to put in a detailed background.

 

OPTIONAL

If you finish all of this, and would like to,  I have attached below a Book Review where you can write about one of your favourite books.

 

 

 

 

 

Spellings for Week Beginning 18.5.20

This week my group will be working on alternative ways to spell the sounds ar and ur

We will be looking at creating an ar sound by using just an a, as in father and rather, or an al, as in calm and half.

We will also be looking at how to create an ur sound by using the graphemes or, as in worm and work and ear, as in earth and learn

Mrs Moss's group will be focusing on alternative ways of pronouncing the graphemes er and ch.

So far we have pronounced ch in works like chin and chat, but we need to see that sometimes ch can make a sh sound, as in chef, or a k sound as in school or character.

We also need to see that er can come in the middle or at the end of a word, like stern, or better,

Please find below your child's spellings for this week.

Work for the week beginning 18/5/20

I hope you are all well. It has been amazing to see all the fantastic work from last week and the children's smiley faces. I am so proud of all the children and their positive attitudes to home schooling. It was great to catch up with all those of you who I spoke to on the telephone, I will be contacting the rest of you by telephone early this week. Friday would have been Sports Day so Mr Wassell has devised a Virtual Sports Day, see the events below.

 

Topic

The focus for this week is the weather. I have included a PowerPoint below which asks your child to think back to the weather chart they completed at the beginning of the Enchanted Wood Summer Term topic. Then for the main task, the PowerPoint asks your child to devise a weather forecast for a place of their choice. It is totally up to you how you wish to do your forecast, it could be a drawn or printed map with the weather symbols written on or your child may wish to video record themselves doing a weather forecast. I have included a Uk and World map below to support this task.

PE

Finally Friday would have been sports day. The list of sports day activities is below so you can all take part at home. There will be video examples put on the school website throughout the week so you can start practising each day. A record sheet will be posted too so your scores can be recorded. I have included some colouring sheets below and certificates so you can prepare for the big day.

Virtual sports day races

1. Egg and spoon (hard boiled egg, potato or suitably shaped stone)

2. Dressing up race (hat, gloves, scarf, coat)

3. Star jumps in 1 minute.

4. Throw and catch in 1 minute with mum or dad

5. Paper plane javelin

6. Design your own obstacle course (optional)

Have a great week and I look forward to catching up with those of you I haven't spoken to by phone on Monday or Tuesday. Please contact my by email stpcmrsbagshaw@icloud.com in the meantime if you have any concerns.

Have a good week, lots of love.

Maths Work Week Beginning 11th May 2020

Our Focus this week is a revision unit on fractions, namely recognising how to find a half and a quarter of a shape, a set of objects or a number. 

Key concepts that we need children to understand

a)  a fraction is an equal part of a whole one

b) When we split something into 2 equal parts, each part is called a half.

c) 2 halves make a whole one

d) When we split something into 4 equal parts, each part is called a quarter.

e) 4 quarters make a whole one

f) 2 quarters is the same as a half

For young children fractions can be a very abstract concept so the more we can link it to concrete, practical and visual images, the better.

While we have used the terms a half and a quarter, we have not yet introduced the numeric representations of fractions -  1/2 & 1/4 so please bear this in mind as it will be new to many of the children. 

I have downloaded six activities from Education City that will help your children to better understand these concepts.

I have downloaded below the White Rose Maths Plans that you may find useful, along with a set of activities related to the unit.  I have included some challenges if your child wants to have ago, but as usual I would suggest that you choose which things to use and which to leave according to how the week goes. 

PLEASE NOTE Whenever the children are asked to find a half or a quarter of a set of objects, the best way is to use concrete apparatus (buttons, coins, lego pieces etc...) and to split them into 2 equal groups or 4 equal groups.

 

 

White Rose Planning for Halves and Quarters

English Work for Week Beginning 11th May 2020

We are now ready to start our new 2-week non-fiction unit on Reading and Writing Instructions. This week we will be concentrating on reading a recipe for gingerbread, as well as comprehension and grammar activities.  In grammar the focus will be on

a) reading and writing compound words which are words made by joining 2 other words to make one new word e.g. hose & pipe = hosepipe etc....

b) the prefix -un.  This is added to the start of a word to change its meaning to the opposite of what it meant before, e.g happy & unhappy.

Below you will find the recipe along with a reading comprehension,  powerpoints and several activities to support the two grammar objectives. As always, please feel free to dip in and out of these resources, using whichever you feel are most helpful.

 

Spelling Lists for Week Beginning 11th May

This week my group will be working on alternative ways to spell the sounds i and ear.  We will be looking at putting a y or ey at the end of a word as well as making the ear sound by using the graphemes ere  and eer instead.

The last 4 words in the list are common words that are used a lot in writing.

Mrs Moss's group will be focusing on alternative ways of pronouncing the graphemes ie and ea.

So far we have pronounced ie like igh in words like pie and cried but this week we will be looking at how ie can also make an ee sound as in field.

Up until now we have sounded ea like ee in words like bean and dream but this week we will be looking at how ea can also make a short e sound as in bread.

 

TOPIC WORK FOR WEEK BEGINNING 11/5/20

I hope you all enjoyed the VE Day celebrations, it was great to see all the work from the children this week. Please find below the topic work for the week ahead.

Topic

The focus this week is the four seasons. I would like the children to think about the weather, plants and length of day associated with each season. I have included fact cards below for the seasons and a season sorting activity. Finally the main task for the children is to design a poster showing each of the seasons and the weather, plants/trees and length of day for each. This can be done in any way and you could use the sorting activity pictures if you like as part of the poster.

Computing

The computing task this week is to send an email with help. Therefore I thought the children could send me an email either sending work or just a short message. These messages can be sent to stpcmrsbagshaw@icloud.com and I'll reply to all.

Have a good week, stay safe and love to you all.

Mrs Bagshaw x

VE THEME DAY 7/5/20

As you are aware, there is a special day this week, VE Day (Victory in Europe Day), which is on May 8th. As a school we are going to be celebrating this by having a themed day on the 7/5/2020. On this day I would like your child to complete special activities below, some of them we will be doing as a whole school and I would love you to send me some pictures of what you get up to. We would like everyone to create their own Union Jack Flag and put it up in their window, to celebrate and say thank you to all those soldiers, who lost their lives during the war.

There is a Powerpoint for you to read through with your child to explain the importance of VE day to begin the theme day. Then the activities for the theme day are to create a flag, design a medal (this can be made practically as well as completing the worksheet), complete a reading comprehension, order the events leading up to VE Day to make a timeline (you may just want to pick key events rather than using all the timeline cards) and finally make a Spitfire glider.

Have fun and enjoy this very special celebration. Mrs Bagshaw xx

Maths Work for Week Beginning 4th May 2020

You may need your waterproofs for this one!  It's Capacity and Volume week!

The good news is that it's great fun, with lots of practical activities to help the children understand the concept of how big a litre is.

There are 3 main things that the children will begin to understand.

a) Capacity means how much liquid a container can hold when it is full.

b) Volume means how much liquid there is in a container. 

c) How much a litre is and to say whether something holds more or less than a litre.

We will also be encouraging the children to understand the word 'estimate'.  We have used it in class before, and refer to it as meaning a clever guess which you have to think carefully about. 

I have uploaded a couple of activities onto the Education City Homework page for the children to have a go at though they can't beat the kinds of 'hands-on' activities given as examples in the Focus Maths Planning which I have attached below.

There is no need to record anything on paper - just have fun!

 

 

Spellings for Week Beginning 4th May 2020

My group is focusing on different ways to record the sounds -s,  -z  and -u.  We will be looking at words that use st to make a s sound as in listen,  s to make a z sound as in noise, and o to make an u sound as in mother.

Mrs Moss's group are focusing on different ways of pronouncing -u and -ow. We will be looking at words that use u to make a yoo sound as in music, and ow to make an oa sound as in slow and grow.

I have attached both sets of spellings below

 

English Work Week Beginning 4th May 2020

We are now in the last week of our Traditional Tales unit.  This means that we are ready to plan and write our own traditional tale.  As it is only a 4-day week, with Friday being a Bank Holiday, I have split the work up as follows:

Days 1 & 2 Planning the story and telling it orally.

Days 3 & 4 Writing and checking the story.

The file attached below explains how the children can develop their plan and create their own story.

 

TOPIC FOR WEEK BEGINNING 4/5/20

I have just set one topic task this week as you may want to use any other time to complete some of the VE Day work. The topic task this week is to create a tree collage. Please only use things you have around the house and drawings will be fine if you are short on craft materials. I have included some example tree collages in the document below.

I hope you all have a good week. It was been wonderful to see all the work you have completed this week.

Stay safe and lots of love to you all, Mrs Bagshaw x

Week Beginning 27th April 2020

Well, I can't believe we're into week 4 of our learning from home programme.  I hope everyone is keeping well and staying safe.  I have had a number of communications with parents this week, which has been lovely. I hope that the work that myself and Mrs Bagshaw have set on this class page is helpful and helps to structure the week, but please feel free to dip in and out of other resources as every child is different and may respond to a wider range of activities available.

Please find below the work set for this week.

Have a great week,

Love to everyone,

The topic for this week is on Addition and Subtraction to 20.  At this stage of learning we would expect children to use concrete apparatus (e.g. counters) or visual aids (e.g.number lines or 100 squares) to support their calculations.  Some children like to draw dots to represent numbers when they are adding or subtracting.  Whatever helps them best is fine.

I have added 7 activities onto Education City (on the Homework page) for the children to complete. The last 2 are missing number activities which can be quite tricky so they may need a bit of extra support if they want to tackle those.  If not, it's fine to leave them.  I have uploaded new number lines to 20 and 100s squares below.

I have also uploaded below the Focus Maths Planning document which shows the kind of activities that your child can do to support their understanding in this area.

Spellings for the week beginning 27th April

My group is focusing on different ways to record the sounds -r,  -n  and -m.  These spellings include what we sometimes call silent letterse.g  gnat, and sign have a silent g,  wrap and wrong have a silent w,  knit and know have a silent k and lamb and thumb have a silent b.

Mrs Moss's group are focusing on different ways of pronouncing -c and -g. Instead of sounding c as a hard sound as in cat and cot, it can also be pronounced as a soft sound (or an s) as in city and ice.  The same applies to g.  We try to encourage the children to see that when a c is followed by an a, o or u it usually makes a hard sound  as in cat, cot or cut, but when it is followed by an e or an i, it usually makes a soft sound as in cent, or cinema.

English Activities for Week Beginning 27th April 2020

This week we will be focussing on the alphabet and capital letters

The alphabet

This will involve children being able to recite the alphabet in order using the correct names for each letter, as well as putting words in alphabetical order by looking to see which letter they start with.

Capital letters

This will involve children knowing when to use a capital letter - at the start of a sentence as well as for names of people, places and days of the week etc...  We will also be working on writing capital letters correctly.

Day 1 - Sing the alphabet song (link below). Make a poster - as colourful as you like - of all 26 letters in the right order. 

Day 2 - Sing the alphabet song again and then recite the alphabet to your mum or dad, using all the correct letter names. You can use your poster to help you.

When you have done this, read the story of Hansel and Gretel again.  On the alphabetical order sheet attached below I have chosen sets of words from the story for you to put in alphabetical order. I have done an example to help you.  See if you can finish the others.  You have to always look at the first letter of each word to choose which one comes first. You can just talk about it, you don't have to write anything down.
Day 3 - Practising writing capital letters.  Look at the  Capital Letters Formation Practice Sheet.  Use this to help you write out the 26 letters of the alphabet in capitals. Remember these 4 things;

      a) Capital letters always start at the top.

      b) They are always tall.

      c) They always rest on the line.

      d) They never have lead-ins or join to other letters.

Day 4 - Read the Hansel and Gretel story and discuss where capital letters have been used.

               a) Read the story on the sheet 'Capital Letters for Names of People, Places and

                 Days of the Week'. 

               b) Copy down  in your book each word in the story that begins with a capital

                   letter.

               c) Sort each word into a group according to whether it is the name of a person, a

                   place or a day of the week or is just at the start of a sentence. You could write

                   this on the sheet, in your book or just talk about it.

               d) Write a sentence that has the name of a person, a place and a day of the

                   week in it. Make sure you start all of these with a capital letter, as well s

                   starting the sentence with a capital letter

Day 5 - a) Spelling Test

              b) Alphabet Hunt - go around your house or garden (or you can do this in your

                   daily exercise time if you prefer)  with your alphabet poster.  See if you can

                  find something that begins with each letter - but you have to start with a and

                  end with z!  Good luck!

               

Work for the week beginning 27.4.20

 

Topic

The focus continues on trees. I have attached below a sorting activities for evergreen (trees that keep their leaves) and deciduous (trees that lose their leaves). There is an answer sheet!!!! You could extend this activity by grouping the trees in a different way.

Computing

The new unit focuses on emailing. The task for this week is to design a poster to show all the different ways of sending messages, traditional (letter, card) and electronic (email, blog, video message). I have included a web link below to show ways of electronic messaging. Please email pictures of these posters and I will be able to put them in the Y1 Computing class work booklet.

I hope you are all well and can’t wait to catch up with you all.  If you have any questions for concerns at all please contact me on the stpcmrsbagshaw@icloud.com email.

Stay safe and lots of love to you all,

English Planning Week Beginning 20th April 2020

We are ready to begin our new 3-week unit of work!  Our focus text is the traditional tale of Hansel & Gretel. This week we will concentrate on reading the text to familiarise ourselves with the story along with completing some activities to develop our Reading skills.

I've attached the story below as a PDF so the children can enjoy the pictures as well as the text.

English Activities for Week Beginning 20th April 2020

Day 1 - Read the story above of Hansel and Gretel.  Choose your favourite part of the

           story and draw a  picture of it. Write a sentence to say what is happening in your

           picture.

Day 2 - Hotseating! Read the story again then ask your mum or dad to sit on a chair and

             pretend to be one of the characters. Think of some questions you would like to ask 

             that character.  Your questions could begin with who, what, why, when or where. 

             When you have done  that, swap places and do the same thing with a different

             character.  If you have time, do the same for the other characters.

Day 3 - Choose one of the characters from the story and write 2 or 3 sentences about

             them.  You can use the adjectives on the character sheets below to help you.

Day 4 - Complete the Reading Comprehension sheets below (your mum or dad can choose

            which one  they think is best for you to do).

Day 5 - a) Spelling Test

            b) Handwriting practice - write out a section of the story in your best handwriting. 

                Remember to start all letters on the line with lead-in strokes. (remember no

                lead-ins for capital letters!)  making your tall letters tall (b, d, h, k, l and t), and

               the letters f, g, j, p, q, y going below the line).

               

Topic Activities for Week Beginning 20th April

Week 2 of our Home Learning Programme.

Hello Selah class! I'm really missing seeing you all and think about you every day. I'll be in school all week so one or two of you might see me but I'll be posting some home learning activities for you on this page and hope you enjoy them. I'll also be joining in with Joe Wick's PE lessons and listening to the David Walliams story everyday too.

I've really enjoyed hearing from your mums and dads about how you are doing and how many exciting things you've been up to. If you want everyone to see what you've been doing just ask your parents to email me a photo and I can post it on this class page.

Anyway, I hope you have a great week!

Lots of love from Mrs Moore xx

Maths Work Week Beginning 30th March 2020

Our focus this week is on Time.  There are many elements to this topic and last term we covered  days of the week and months of the year and their related vocabulary e.g. today, yesterday, tomorrow, and before and after.  This week the focus is on recapping this prior learning and understanding units of time e.g. seconds, minutes, hours. I have uploaded a number of activities onto the Education City website and have attached below the White Rose Planning for Time which is pretty comprehensive and gives lots of great questions to ask.  Most of this work is best done orally with your child.  Ideally, we would like the children to be able to recognise o'clock and half past on an analogue clock by the end of this unit.

 

 

Spellings Week Beginning 30th March 2020

Please find below the spellings for this week.

Mrs Moss's group is focusing on 3 new split digraphs i-e, o-e and u-e.

Children need to see that u-e can be pronounced oo (as in flute)  or yoo (as in cube).

My group will be focusing on the different pronunciations of 'e' as in step or me as well as the two ways of pronouncing 'ey' as in monkey or grey.

English Activities Week beginning 30th March 2020

This would generally be our planning, writing and editing week as it is the final week of our unit on narrative poetry.

Writing rhyming poetry is one of the hardest things for children to do and at this age we wouldn't expect them to do it without support. So I'm going to write a list of activities that you could use to help your child to produce a piece of writing (a story) inspired by The Owl & the Pussycat Poem.

Activity 1. Go for a walk and listen and look for and talk about the animals that might be living around you - those that you might see or hear, or those that may be living in the houses, hedgerows or fields nearby etc...

Activity 2. Choose 2 animals from your walk (or just 2 of your favourite animals if you prefer) and draw and label a picture of each of them. You could even have . You may want to give them names.

Activity 3. Read The Owl & the Pussycat again and think of an adventure that might happen to your 2 animal characters. Draw pictures or act out of each part of the story to help you remember it. Remember it has to have a problem that gets solved and all the characters have to be animals! 

Activity 4 Write the story using your phonics mat to help you with your spellings.  Remember capital letters and full stops and to check that it makes sense.

 

 

Topic Work Week Beginning 30/3/20

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and enjoying your home learning. I am missing you all and can't wait to hear about all your learning at home.

Monday 23rd March 2020 - Note for the Year 1 children from Mrs Moore 

Hello everyone!

Just a quick note to say hello and I hope you've had a good day, learning from home.

I will be thinking of you every day.

Take care,

Maths Work for Week Beginning Monday 23rd March 2020

Dear Y1 parent,

The focus in Maths this week is position and direction.  This involves children understanding turns - half and quarter turns, left and right, forwards and backwards as well as clockwise and anti-clockwise.

I have selected activities that your child will be able to access from Monday 23.3.20 to 27.3.20.

At the end of the week I will be able to see how your child has done with the online activities.

If they complete the work you could play a game, giving your child instructions to get from one spot in the garden to another.  They could then give you instructions too. e.g. 2 steps forward, a quarter turn clockwise etc.... You could also create a treasure map on a grid and they have to get to the treasure.

While I understand that this is not an ideal situation for the children -nor indeed for yourselves - I would like to reassure you that I will do all I can to support your child's continued learning at home.

My best wishes to you all,

Suzanne Moore

Year 1 Class Teacher

Below are 2 sheets for your child to do.

Sheet a is a comprehension sheet which can be done orally while sheet b can be done on paper.

 

Wednesday 25th March Update - Reading Comprehension & Maths Website

Hello!

Hope everyone is keeping well.

Just to let you know that I've added a Reading Comprehension activity below. When you open it you'll see a choice of 3 differentiated texts and corresponding question sheets (with answers). Please choose whichever which you feel is most appropriate for your child. These can be completed orally.

I will aim to upload a new reading comprehension each week.

Mr Wassell also informs me that David Walliams is going to be reading a story at 11am every day which I'm sure the children will enjoy. Apparently you can access it at any time, not just 11am. I've added the link to that below too.

On the Maths front, Carol Vorderman's 'The Maths Factor' website has been made available free of charge for all children learning at home.  I have tried to register online but due to high demand a message popped up telling me to try again tomorrow. It may be worth having a look - you may be more successful than me! I've added a link below.

In the meantime take care,

Love Mrs Moore
