Good morning Year 1! Today is Thursday 21st May. We are now in Summer Term week 5.
I hope you had a fantastic day yesterday and learned something new. Have you noticed that the weather has changed from the start of our season of Spring? The days are now getting sunnier, warmer and longer. A greater number of plants are in bloom and we are starting to see more animals.
Yesterday I made a cake with some strawberries. Strawberries are a fruit which grow at this time of year.
Today you have English, Maths and Science tasks to complete. Have a magical day!
Let's start the day with a prayer.
The Lord's prayer, or Our Father
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Phonics and handwriting
Please aim for 30 minutes (15 each) of handwriting and phonics per day.
We will be learning more about the suffixes er and est.
Try and write sentences using words with the suffixes er and est in the worksheet below.
Read and enjoy the poem, Five Little Senses. List a few things that you really like to taste, smell, feel, see and hear.
Do you remember when we did the taste and smell experiments in class? The different food's certainly had some mixed reactions!
Write about the things you love to taste, smell, feel, see and hear. Decorate your page with beautiful pictures of all the things you have mentioned.
Today's activity focuses on whole, half and quarter fractions. To find a half of a number, shape or object we need to cut it into two equal parts. To find a quarter we need to cut a number, shape or object into four equal parts.
Let's look at these eight cats. Eight is our whole amount.
If we split the eight cats into two equal groups we have four cats in each group. One half is four.
Let's look at these eight cats. Eight is our whole amount. If we split the eight cats into four equal groups we have two cats in each group. One quarter is two.
Have a go at this fraction game!
Today's activity focuses on what food comes from plants. Did you know there are foods that come from all the different parts of a plant?
A fun challenge to try! Can you find foods in your kitchen that fit each part of a plant?
