Ordering numbers to 100

 

We’ve been comparing, then ordering numbers all the way to 100 this week.

 

Remember to work out how many tens, then how many ones to help you to compare numbers. Roll up for some fun throwing coconuts to rehearse your ordering skills. Please choose numbers up to 100.

 

Them you can challenge yourself to apply your learning by completing this challenge on CSK.

Year 1 Common Exception Words

 

Thank you for your great efforts at home last week. Continue practising any ‘gap words’ you have at home, and we will keep working on them at school.

 

‘Guess Who?’ Adjectives

 

Choose another member of our awesome class. Can you write three clues to describe them? We can read them on Friday to see whether the rest of the class can guess who you are describing! Make sure you include adjectives to help you to describe them accurately.

 

As always, remember capital letters, finger spaces and punctuation.

My Money: Want or Need?

 

We’ve really enjoyed learning about money so far. This week we all role-played different jobs to earn ‘wages’.

 

Use the attached resource, or work straight into your Home Learning Book. Look at the different things you might buy with your wages. Are they things you really need, or instead things you’d want? Can you sort them into two groups?

 

We’ll discuss your ideas in our next PSHE lesson.

 

 

 

30  mins

 

We’ve learned about different types of money, how we use money in different forms to buy things, and how many adults do job to earn wages so they can buy things.

Counting Backwards within 100

 

We’ve been working really hard to count down within 100 this week. It’s crossing the 10s, such as 61,60,59 which can be the trickiest.

 

You can use songs such as this to help you to practice counting backwards.

 

There’s also our favourite ‘Whack a Mole’ game, where you can set yourself the challenge of counting backwards from 20, 50 or even 100. Ask a grown-up to set the setting on the right to ‘BWD’  If you get stuck, you can use a 100 square to help you like this one.

Year 1 Common Exception Words

 

Before half-term, we had a go at spelling the list of Year 1 Common Exception Words, or ‘red words’. These are words that you cannot sound out, but you should aim to be able to read and spell by the end of Year 1.

 

In your book bag is a copy of the words. Each one that is highlighted is one you spelled correctly: well done! Please stick the list up at home and have a little practice of a couple at a time when you can. We are also working on practising these ‘gap’ spellings in class each week as part of KIPPT time. Please don’t try to learn them all at once if there’s quite a few gaps. (If all your words are already highlighted, well done, you can already spell them all!)
 

Suffixes – ing, ed, er

 

We’ve been learning about the ing suffix in class this week. Complete the activities on Classroom Secrets Kids to consolidate your learning. Read each sentence out loud to help you to choose the right word.

 Geography: The Seaside

 

We had great fun using compasses to explore which way is North, South, East and West in class this week.

 

You should find a map of the United Kingdom in your book bag.

 

Using either an atlas, other map, or a website such as Google Maps or Google Earth, can you label any seasides that you’ve been to on your map sheet. For each one, can you work out whether you travelled mostly north, south, east or west to get there? I wonder who has been to any unusual seasides, and which is the most popular place to go for our class. We’ll find out next week!

 

30  mins

 

We will be learning more about features of the seaside in coming weeks.

KIPPT time: Number bonds to 20.

We’ve been polishing our number bonds to 20 recall this week in class. Spend five minutes playing Hit The Button to brush up on them at home. Choose ‘Make 20’, or ‘Make 10’ if you are still working on your number bonds to 10.

 

Quarters

 

Watch this song to remind you of how to find a quarter. Now, can you find different ways to represent quarters at home? Draw, or take a photo of examples you can find. Food is very good for showing this.

Learning the model text: Rumplestiltskin

 

I’ve put our text map and model text for Rumplestiltskin into the resources folder. Use the text map to rehearse telling the story. Use the actions we came up with as a class, and try to use lots of expression. It’s a long story, so you might need a grown-up to help you by checking them model text.

Sharing Equally: Dinner Time!

 

We’ve loved chatting about how to share equally. Sometimes many of us say ‘it’s not fair!’ at home, especially if we have a brother or a sister!

 

Can you explain to your grown-ups how to share an amount fairly? Maybe you could be in charge of dishing out some food at dinner time? What can you do to make sure everybody gets the same amount?

 

To consolidate your learning, join in with the Interactive Activity game.

 

There’s also an optional Maths Challenge with a pirate theme if you’d like something harder! It’d be helpful to use objects to represent the coins at home to help you.

Singular and plural

 

You’ve been learning about singular and plural words both through teaching in class and learning your spellings last week.

 

Watch this lovely clip about the ‘pluralator’ to remind you of when you add /s/ and when you add /es/ to make a plural.

 

Pick three of these words, and use your ‘pluralator’ of them to turn them into plurals. Then, can you use each in a silly sentence?

Asking, telling or yelling

 

We’ve been talking about selecting the right punctuation to end a sentence. If we are asking something we use a question mark, if we are telling you something it’s a full stop, and if we are showing a strong feeling, or yelling, we use an exclamation mark.

 

Follow this link to look at an amazing picture. Can you write an asking sentence, a telling sentence and a yelling sentence about it?

 

Don’t forget that lovely tall capital letter at the start of each sentence, and spaces between your words. Also remember to make your tall letters (ascenders) nice and tall!

Science: Sorting Plants

 

As part of our plants topic, we’ve been learning about wild plants and garden plants. Today’s home learning asks you to hunt around your garden, or a local area with plants, such as your park.

 

How many plants that we’ve been learning about can you spot, and can you sort them into ‘weeds’ and ‘not weeds’?

 

There’s a worksheet on the resources page you can record your answers on, or you could complete this straight into your Home Learning book.

The prefix ‘un’

 

We’ve begun to explore the meaning of the prefix ‘un’. It’s introduced after a brief phonics recap, in this video by Mr Lynn , which was recorded in last year’s lockdown.

 

Can you:

1) Remember the meaning of ‘un’ that we talked about in class, and how it changes a word?

2) Find any other words where you can add ‘un’ and change the meaning?

 

Try to find three, and use each of them in a sentence.

RE: Creation Collages

 

In RE, we have been learning about the Christian story of creation; looking at versions based on the start of the chapter of Genesis.

 

We have talked about how amazing the natural world is. We have marvelled at amazing landscapes, such as waterfalls, mountains and rivers, as well as the incredible range of wildlife that we find all around the planet.

 

Your task is to create a ‘Creation Collage’ of things you find amazing in the natural world. You might cut up old magazines, add natural materials such as leaves or pressed flowers, or include some of your own drawings or art work.

 

We’d like to add some to our display area in class. Therefore, please complete this work on a A4 sheet of paper, instead of in your home learning books. We’ve popped a sheet in everybody’s book bag.

Capacity investigation: how many cups?

 

Please ask an adult to help you with this! The aim is to develop number sense through using estimation skills. We very much enjoyed doing it at school! I’ve uploaded a simple worksheet you can use for this if you wish.

 

Choose a plastic cup, and a 5 containers in your house of various sizes. Label them A to E.

Estimate how many cups of water it’d take to fill A, and write this down. Then, carefully fill A up using your plastic cup.

Use the answer you get to ‘estimate’ how many it’ll take to fill container B. Don’t just guess from the top of your head! Compare the size of A and B: are they similar? Will the answer be a lot more/ fewer cups?

Continue in this way, estimating each container before measuring it with cups. See if your estimates get more accurate as you go.

 

Discuss with your grown-up: did any surprise you? Are some shapes easier to estimate than others?

This work will go alongside your Science work, as explained below.

 

When you go on your Spring walk, use your senses. What can you see, hear, smell and touch? Can you write a sentence with one idea for each of those senses? Try to include an adjective in each sentence.


Today’s focus is letter height. Can you remember which letters are tall letters, and make sure they are taller than the rest?

 

Don’t forget this week’s spellings are uploaded to resources, and also in your Pupil Planner.
