Science – This week we have two options for science. If you are able could you plant a seed? Have a think about what you would need to give your plant/ flower alive? Grown ups – as an experiment, if you are able, could you plant one seed in perfect conditions (sunlight, water, soil, pot etc) and one in incorrect conditions (maybe in the dark, don’t water it). Can you predict what will happen and why? If you are unable to plant a seed have a go at drawing all what you need to plant one (a pot, soil etc) and what they need to stay alive!

We are all excited to see everyone although we understand things will be very different to what we are used to. We will all work together to ensure everyone is happy and safe and understands the new rules and measures put in place to keep everyone healthy.
We will of course continue to put learning resources on the website for those of you who are unable to join us.

I am small.
I have 6 legs.
I have an oval shaped body.
I can fly.
I am normally red or black.
I have spots.
Did you guess what it is?
Yes – you’re right, it’s a ladybird! Ladybirds are one of Mrs Shirley’s favourite insects.
Spellings! Your spellings for this week are to learn to spell the days of the week.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Each of these needs a capital letter. Practise them as often as you can. Be creative and enjoy your learning!

Week beginning 1st June

Hello Year 1 pupils and grown ups! We hope you have had a lovely half term and enjoyed some of the incredible weather we have been having. The times we are going through are still as unusual as they were before half term but we know we will all get to see each other again at some point! Grown ups please keep checking the letters section for updates. We look forward to hearing what you have all been up to during the last couple of months.  I have gathered lots of new ideas to bring back to school when we all return. Below are your activities for the week, there are a couple of videos from some rather unexpected sources that explain some of your work. Have a wonderful week, be creative and enjoy!

Here are some practical maths ideas for this week:

Collect items that could be used as diennes (tens sticks)- straws, pencils etc and ones (lego, blocks, pegs etc). Can you use them to make different numbers? What if you add another ten stick? Or three more ones? Have a grown up ask you to make different numbers. You could extend this to taking away 10 or 1.

Draw a number line outside with chalk or just jump in tens or ones. Big jump for 10, small hop for 1. Can you jump out 33? 41? 100?! Have a grown up give you numbers to jump out!

Spellings! This week focus on numbers 11-20 in words. Numbers to 20 – spellings will help you. Remember, when practising be as creative as possible – paint them, make them, draw them etc. Good luck!

Monday 1st June

English: Below is a video from Clarence, a caterpillar that lives in Mr Wilson’s garden. Have a listen to his worries! Can you help him?

Phonics – For today’s phonics we would like you to read your favourite story and be a phonic detective! How many different digraphs can you find in your book? You could write them or say them when you see them! Can you remember the all? If you still have your flashcards from before half term use them to practise!

Maths – You will need the link here and Scroll down to Lesson 2 – To explore the components of numbers within 100. You can click here to find a link to interactive diennes that will help.

Geography – Below is a message from Peter! Have a listen to what he says. Grown ups – this can be a discussion, a picture, anything! Maybe talk about your own visits to the seaside!

Hello Year 1’s!

We hope you are all well and enjoying the lovely sunshine. We miss you all and can’t wait to see you again once it is safe to return to school.

This week we have some more activities to get you thinking and being creative. We hope you enjoy them!

To all the grown ups, we want to help you as much as possible with home schooling. We realise from our own experiences at home that it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge!

So please be as flexible as you need to be with what we have suggested this week. Do what suits your child and continue to safely spend time outside enjoying the lovely weather.

Take care and stay safe,

The Year 1 Teachers

Spellings!

This week we thought you could try some different words to spell. You all know how to write the numbers 1-10, now you can learn how to spell them!

one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten

We think that two, four and eight are the hardest but we know you will master them! Some ideas for learning them are:

Look at the number/ word mats in the below link (the first one focuses on numbers to 10). Have a grown up say a number, you find that number and say how to spell it. See if you can move on to doing it without looking!

Numbers to 20 – spellings

You could make your own flash cards like you will do in phonics but have the number one side and the spelling the other. Have your grown up show you the number and you try spelling it! Be as creative as you wish. Paint the words, draw them or build them!

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe!

Week beginning 4th May (May the 4th be with you!)

A brand new week starting with the very important ‘Star Wars Day’! I have two very excited children expecting a lightsabre battle here – but only once they have finished their work! I wonder what you will get up to this week? I cannot wait to hear all of your news. Hopefully you are managing to get outside for a walk, making sure you stay safely away other people. I know I’ve seen a few of you whilst out walking with my family, please do give me a wave and say hello. I love to hear from you and know what you’ve been up to! We are all missing you very much, missing singing our songs and reading stories together and we are all looking forward to the day we can be together in class again.

Please stay safe, help your grown-ups, practise your phonics! But most of all enjoy this time to be creative, draw and colour a picture, build a Lego model, read a book. You could even keep a diary to share with us when we go back to school. 🙂

Take care Year 1 x

Additional ideas and activities.
We are aware lots of our children need practical activities to stimulate their mathematical understanding and to keep them active. We do not expect the children to be sat in front of a screen for long periods of time and understand not everyone has access to a computer or the internet all the time. Baking, pairing socks and practising counting in 2’s, make your own ten frames and use these to help with addition and subtraction questions. Ask your child to draw around their hand and cut it out, they could make a number of cut outs and use these to practise counting in 5’s. If your child enjoys active songs you could search for Jack Hartmann on YouTube, he has a range of number songs, ‘Count to 100’ is especially good and the children really enjoy it!

For this weeks Tuesday and Thursday topic time please see the link below (the link is also next to Tuesday and Thursday below). You can ask a grown up to post your work/ photos for the VE Day challenge on the school PTA Facebook page. Have fun! Continue to scroll down to find this weeks recommended work and spellings. Have a lovely week!

E S T A E R U Y N B N


Dear Year 1 Children and Grown-ups.

We hope you are all staying safe and helping your grown-ups as much as possible. We will try to upload other Easter activities when we find them.

Thank you to everyone who’s been completing the work we’ve been putting on the website.

Over the Easter holidays (Mon 6th– Fri 17th April) we would like you to have a go at a project based on the various landmarks around Portland and Weymouth.

A landmark is an object or feature of a landscape that is easily seen and recognised from a distance and helps someone know where they are.

Here are some ideas of things you may wish to include in your project.

A list of landmarks on Portland or in Weymouth.

Draw a picture of your favourite landmark?

Why is your landmark there? Is it used for anything?

Build a model of your landmark – you could use building bricks or empty cereal boxes for example.

Ask your grownups to take a photograph of your model or picture.

Some landmarks that we thought of include: Portland Bill Lighthouse, The Olympic Rings, The Jubilee Clock, The White Horse at Osmington, St George’s Church and Portland Castle.

As an extension we would like you to design a new landmark.

What would it look like?

Where would it be?

What would it do?

Your landmark needs to be easily seen and recognised. People need to know where they are when they see your landmark.

You can complete your project however you like; you might want to build a model, paint a picture, do some writing, create a power point presentation, use Lego bricks or junk modelling.

You do not need to complete everything on this list – you may have your own ideas!

Have fun with your project and have a safe and happy Easter.

We will resume more formal learning after the Easter break with weekly updates on the Year One page on the website.

The Year One Team.
