Good morning year 1 and welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely week of relaxing and enjoying the sunshine! We are all feeling refreshed and ready to start term 6.
Here’s today’s learning:
The RWI videos will start up again from today but will take a slightly different form. All videos will be available from 9:30am so you can choose from set 2 or set 3, whichever you feel your child needs to focus on. There will be reading opportunities for longer words and red words included in each session. Use the link below to find the lessons you need under the different categories.
If you would rather not use the videos, teach the lesson as follows:
1, Find the sound ‘ea’ on your sound card and say it lots of times, make sure you are looking at the sound to ensure you remember what it looks like, also say ‘ea- cup of tea.’ When you're finished, point to some other sounds too (about 10).
2. Write down the following words for your child to read (cream, beam, sea, beast, bleach). Remember they need to find the special friends, Fred talk (say the sounds) and then read the word.
3. Now write down some words for your child to read as a recap of previous sounds learnt (book, boat, fire, snail, bark). This time encourage your child to say the sounds in their head and then say the word aloud.
4. Ask your child to show you their alien faces! Write down the words reab, creat, sheag, klead. Ask your child to spot the special friends, Fred talk and then read the word.
5. Now it's time for spellings! One at a time say the following words to your read (cream, beam, sea, beast, bleach). Repeat the word back to each other then ask them to pinch the sounds. When they know how many sounds in the word they can write it down. Help your child to tick or fix (correct) their work.
Today we are going to focus on using capital letters and full stops when we are writing. Use the link below to learn all about Captain Capital.
There are then some fun activities and games to complete which will help you to practise using capital letters and full stops.
To warm up our maths brains today, complete the activity below.
This week in maths we will be focussing on statistics. Today’s focus is on tally charts and recording information using tallies. Use the attached PowerPoint to learn about tally charts and practise making tallies, then it will be your turn to create your own!
Topic this week will be RE and we will be focussing on, ‘What do Muslims celebrate?’ Last term we explored the different celebrations of Hindus, can you remember any of their special times? Talk to your adult about what you can remember.
We have discussed Muslims before, what can you remember about the faith? Can you remember where they worship? (Mosque). Who do Muslims believe in/ pray to? (Allah). What is the Muslim holy book called? (Qur’an).
Use the teaching slides attached to learn about the Islamic New Year then complete one of the attached activities.
On a Monday we normally have a PE lesson. To ease you in after a week off, type in to google Cosmic Kids Yoga and choose a video your child wants to complete.
Have a great first day back!
