Year 1 Remote Learning Page WB 8-2-21

Dear parents,

Bellow you will find the planning for week beginning 8.2.2021. 

Thank you for returning the science work. We have added some photos on the Year 1 blog, take a look at them!



Throughout the week we try and add stories for the children to watch.  Have a snack and a story just like we do at school.


Focused Homework

This week we would like you to return the completed literacy writing. This work needs to be returned by Sunday 14th of February via the Year 1 email:


We are currently calling families to check everything is OK.  The number may be a 'withheld number'. It takes a while to get through the list of children working from home, but we are trying our best to call you as soon as possible.

Thank you for all your hard work. We understand that home learning can be challenging, please get in touch if you need any support or advice.  We miss all of the children at school and can't wait to have them altogether again.


Have a relaxing half term break!

Best wishes

Year 1 Team

This week in maths we will be learning how to partition two digit numbers. A two digit number, is a number, made out of two digits: 43, 58, 61. To partition two digit numbers, we need to break them down into tens and ones. The first part of the number will show us how many 10's there are and the second part of the number shows how many 1's there are. (43 has 4 tens and 3 ones. 4 tens=40, 3 ones=3) 
We will also be revisiting addition, as counting on from a number and solving addition word problems.
In a word problem we need to identify the numbers we are working with and the word that shows us that it is addition. (7 birds are sitting on the tree. 4 more birds join them. How many birds are on the tree altogether?)

This week we will do the BIG WRITE based on the story: The Rainbow Bear.
Children will need to write a diary entry in three separate days. First day the diary entry will be about the beginning of the story, second day the diary entry is about the middle of the story and the third day the diary entry is about the final part of the story.
In school we will encourage this writing to be as independent as possible but we give children ideas at the start of each writing session. Please encourage children to write independently, trying to remember to use capital letters, full stops, finger spaces. The focus in this writing is on verbs in past tense and using personal pronoun I. Children will have to imagine that they are the Rainbow bear and they write the story from their perspective, things that they did and things that happened to them as Rainbow bear. 
Some of the parents we have spoken to expressed that children find following the online phonics lessons sometimes tricky. We are still keeping these links on the website but this week we have done a different, simplified version of the lessons as well. This week in the videos the teacher is focusing on alternative spelling of a sound but she also mentions alternative sounds.
In the power point presentation we have focused only on the different spelling of the same sound. 
Choose the lessons that suit you and your child best.  

Geography and ICT

In today's lesson, we join Miss Browne in learning about some of the famous landmarks in London.


After watching the lesson, log onto Purplemash.  On the 2do tab is an activity with a writing frame.  Pick 3 different pictures of a landmark or mode of transport from London then write about the picture.  Please save your work.  Here is an example below.

This week we are learning about the artist Kandinsky.  We are also learning how to add white to a colour to make a tint and black to a colour to make a tone.
Try and recreate the Kandinsky picture using paints with different tints and tones.  If you don't have paints, you could try and recreate the picture using paper, pens, or crayons.
Chinese New Year.
At school this week we will be doing a lot of craft activities on Chinese New Year.  It would be lovely if you could join in too.  Chinese New Year is on Friday 12th February, maybe you could have a Chinese New Year activity morning? 
Watch the PowerPoint presentation below and the short Cbeebies video. We have attached lots of different craft ideas and resources.  Please choose from the ideas or think of your own.

Paper Fans and Lanterns
Science -
This week in science we are going to build and test some toy aeroplanes for Paddington Bear.
We will be using paper, thin card, cardboard, foil and tissue paper to make our flying machines.
We will test to see which material is most effective to use as an aeroplane. We will measure how far the aeroplanes fly to make our judgements.
The power point will explain the design and testing process. The worksheet should be used to collect and record the results and to make a simple conclusion.

Over the next few weeks, listen to different types of music.  Ask different people in your family what their favourite song/piece of music is and have a listen.  Does it make you dance? Does it make your feel happy/sad?  Does it remind you of anything?  You can just enjoy the music, or draw a picture of what it makes you think of or write a sentence.  It's up to you!

Outdoor Learning:
This week we would like you to try and build a maze outside. 
First you need to collect a bag of medium sized sticks on your walk or from your garden. 
Next place two sticks on the floor facing each other, leaving a gap between them in the middle so you can walk through. Keep adding sticks to make the path longer, turn to the right or left, you can make a dead end, etc. 
After you have built your maze, test it out. Can you get from the start to finish? How about making your way back from the finish to start? 
Finally clear the maze away and tidy up.
