Summer Term 2
Hi Year 1,
I hope you enjoyed the sunshine over half term. We have been so lucky with the weather. Although my garden is now desperate for some rain.
Belated Happy Birthday wishes to Charlie B, Florence, Jess and Vanessa. All of you had your birthdays over the holiday and I hope you had a very special day.
Obviously this week is a bit different to previous weeks. I am putting the whole week on the website, but for those children who are returning to school, I will be teaching Day 1 and Day 2. So if you are coming to school on Thursday or Friday please could you start with Day 3 and Day 4 on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday is now a wellbeing day for everyone and I will not be setting any work.
Just want to wish Happy Birthday to Isaac for Tuesday.
Unfortunately the Powerpoint mentioned in the topic section will not upload but can be found at Twinkl - Apollo Moon Landing Information. The Powerpoint is only there if you want to extend your learning and is not vital.
I hope the last two days have not been too stressful. Here is Wednesday's learning
Hello Year 1
I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and are ready for some exciting new learning. I have attached all the work you will need for the next few days. Use as much or as little as you feel able to.
I would also like to send congratulations to Annabel and her family for the safe arrival of her baby sister. We have all been so excited waiting for the news.
Happy belated birthday wishes to Jax for his birthday earlier this month. I hope you managed to have a super time despite the restrictions. Happy Birthday to Bella for her birthday coming up this week too.
If you need any help or advice don't hesitate to contact me.
Miss Macgregor and Mrs Davies
Friday 27 March
Unbelievably we are almost at the end of our first week.
Maths - Today you might want to log on to iseemaths.com and play one of the KS1 maths games Sum Connect 4 etc.
English - Try to write as many words as you can that contain the 'a' sound ( a ai ay a-e .)
Can you sort the words into the correct spelling eg
Who can find the most?
Topic - While the weather is sunny, if you can get out. Can you find different plants and find out what they are called? If they are in your garden, can you draw them?
Thursday 26th March
Maths - Use the numbers from yesterday to count on in tens from 10. Then in tens from 4 . Then in tens from 7.
Turn all the numbers cards face down and with your grown up or family, turn one number over each. Whoever has the largest number wins.
English - Can you write down 5 questions for your grown up to find the answers to? Don't forget to add a question mark at the end of your questions. Then can your grown up write 5 questions for you to find the answers?
Topic - Can you find 4 objects made from: metal, wood, plastic, and glass around your house and draw them in different sets.
Challenge can you sort them by their properties? eg hard, soft, flexible, transparent, translucent, opaque)
Wednesday 25th March
Good morning everyone,
I hope you are all working hard and keeping as safe as you possibly can.
Alongside the sheets I sent home last week, here are a couple of things you might like to try today.
Maths - Write down all the numbers you can in order to 100. If possible write them down on squared paper and then cut them up. Can you put them into a 100 square correctly. Remember the patterns
( Down - the tens column goes up by one and the ones column stays the same. Across - the tens column stays the same and the ones column goes up by one.) Then can you sort your numbers into odd and even numbers. Keep your numbers safe for other tasks.
Challenge - Can you find all the multiples of 2? What is a multiple? What does it mean?
English - Both you and your grown up find a page in a book with lots of words. Then challenge each other to find the most sentences on your page. Check your grown up is not cheating! Did they count their sentences correctly? How do you know what a sentence is? When you have found your sentence, can you write down all the capital letters you find on the page? Are they always at the start of a sentence? How many different capital letters did you find? Did you beat your grown up?
Good Luck , have fun and keep safe!
Spring Term 2020
This term sees Year 1 learning about the polar regions of the world. Studying not only the climate, but the animals and people who live and work in the Arctic and Antarctic. The children will look at famous explorers in history, recognise and name continents in geography and study animal characteristics in science. Art will involve making Arctic landscapes and weaving the Aurora Borealis.
Later in the term our topic will be all about traditional tales from different countries, especially Denmark, which will lead into our preparations for Stories4schools. Jack and the beanstalk will inspire our look at the growing conditions of plants and we hope to sow lots of seeds, potatoes and beans to create a beautiful display in the summer.
If you would like any further information or have any queries, do not hesitate to contact me directly or through the school office.
Autumn Term 2019
Welcome back to another new term at Knightlow C of E Primary School.
This term Year 1 will be learning about poetry, especially the work of Allan Ahlberg.
We will also be learning about life in Africa and comparing it to their own lives. We hope to have parents in to teach us about music and dance from Zambia.
Later in the term we will look at Victorian Schools, culminating in a Victorian role play day.
