Good morning Year 1! Today is Tuesday 2nd June. We are now in Summer term 2, week 1.
I hope you all had a great day yesterday and got along well with the work. Just remember that even though I can't be with you all right now that I think that you are all amazing just the way you are.
Today you have Grammar, English, Maths and Humanities tasks to complete. Have a wonderful day children!
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.
There are 7 days in the week. Sunday is the first day of a new calendar week. Monday is the first day of a new school week.
Play Uncle Tom's Days of the Week. You can even try Uncle Tom's Months of the Year too.
Re-read The Race Across the River. Highlight only the names of the animals that are in the story. Use your phonics to read tricky words. Sequencing events from The Race Across the River. Remember to use sequence words; first, next, then, after that and finally.
Use a descriptive word for each animal (the tiny rat, the huge ox, etc.). Descriptive words are adjectives. Adjectives are words that describe a noun.
Why not try the fun adjective game below!
Today we will be learning more about turns. This is how we turn an object or shape:
- Start (whole turn)
- One quarter turn
- Half turn
- Quarter turn
- End (whole turn)
In today's task you will be describing turns. If you are finding it tricky, you could cut out the shapes from paper to help you.
Today we will be learning about the seaside as part of our Humanities topic; 'UK seas, rivers and mountains'. Have you ever been to the seaside? What do you think it may be like?
In this lesson we will be understanding the features of the seaside. We will also be learning about what people do, eat and find when they go to the seaside.
Today you have two tasks.
1- Label the features of the seaside.
2- Write a postcard about your time at the seaside. What did you see, do and enjoy? (Choose between the two postcards).
Why not enjoy the story Lucy and Tom Go To The Seaside when you have finished the work.
