Year 1 - Class Basil

Please view this page for all the home school learning resources for the Year 1 Class Basil.

Hello everybody - It's such a shame that our class bubble has popped as it was so lovely to have the children back in school learning and playing together. The health and safety of the children and their families must come first and we are looking forward to seeing everyone again on Friday. Learning packs were sent out on Friday afternoon and here is a timetable of suggested activities.

We have also put two activities on Purple Mash for you to do each day.

New books have been allocated on Rising Stars and we recommend that you practise reading together everyday as this will make a huge difference.

Each week there will also be some games to play on Spelling Shed which will help you practise your weekly spellings.

If you have any concerns or need to ask any questions send an email to year1@pentlandinf.co.uk. You can also share photographs of completed work on here too, it would be lovely to see how you are getting on with your work at home.

Take care and keep safe

Week beginning 15th March

The children have settled back into school really well and we are so proud of them all. smiley

 

English

This week we will be asking the children to use their knowledge about pirates to plan their very own pirate adventure. They will have to think about the following questions:

  • What they would need to pack?
  • Where they would go and why?
  • Who would they take?
  • Would they find any treasure?

There are also some brilliant daily Year 1 phonic video lessons available on Letters and Sounds Spring Term Year 1 lessons - YouTube

 

Maths

 

This week we will be learning about weight and mass and we will be showing the children how to accurately weigh items using balance scales. We will be encouraging the children to use lots of ‘weighing’ language such as heavy, light, heavier than, lighter than as they compare and order the mass of objects.

We will also be continuing to develop our map skills by programming the Bluebots to move around the pirate treasure map.

There are also some brilliant Year 1 daily maths video lessons available on the home learning section of the White Rose Maths website. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

Topic

We have an eggciting delivery coming to school this week! The children will be observing the living eggs and discussing the changes.

The children will be also be designing and making their own pirate ships and investigating if they float or sink.

Last week we talked about the Census and carried out our very own class census counting activities. This week we will be looking in more detail at the local census data from 10 years ago.

 

Ways to help at home

Practise weighing objects and ordering them from lightest to heaviest.

Let your child help you to complete the questions for the census on Sunday.

 

Week beginning 8th March

We wish you a very warm welcome back! Settling the children back into school and their well being is our number one priority. We have missed them so much and are looking forward to a fun and action packed week together.

English

This week we will be settling the children back into class and finding out what they have learnt about pirates so far. We will be sharing some of the fantastic home learning that we have been delighted to see. We will also be learning the names of different parts of a pirate ship and writing labels.

Maths

This week we will be continuing our work on length and height. We will be showing the children how to accurately measure using a ruler and how to record their measurements. We will be using lots of ‘measuring’ language such as longer, shorter, longest, shortest.

We will also be creating our own treasure maps and asking a friend to guess where the treasure is hidden by using co-ordinates.

Topic

Monday is International Women’s day, we will be talking to the children about famous women, both past and present who have helped to shape our world. We will also be researching and learning about famous female pirates. Continuing with the female theme we will be talking about our own mum’s and why we think they are fantastic.

Ways to help at home...

Practise measuring at home.

Read your Rising Stars book together – focussing upon the comprehension questions too.

 

Week Beginning 1st March

This week we are continuing with our Pirates topic, for this week's home learning challenges, please see the suggested timetable of activities below. You should have already received your paper packs and be ready to go. 

We have also put two activities on Purple Mash for you to do each day.

New books have been allocated on Rising Stars and we recommend that you practise reading together everyday as this will make a huge difference.

Each week there will also be some games to play on Spelling Shed which will help you practise your weekly spellings.

Our new topic will be ‘superheroes’.

Before we start learning about our new book, you need to think about everything you know about superheroes. Talk about your ideas with your grown up.

After you have spent some time talking, write some of your ideas onto a mind map.

Consider:

  • What do they look like?
  • What do they do?
  • What powers do they have?
  • Do you know the names of any famous superheroes?

Week beginning 11th January

English

This week we are having a fairy tale theme and inparticular we are focusing on the story of Cinderella. The children watched the pantomime of Cinderella before the holiday, ask them to tell you about what they can remember about the show. They could draw their favourite character and write about why s/he is their favourite and/or maybe they could have a go at writing the story.

 

 

In the story Cinderella's fairy godmother grants her a wish. If your child were to choose a wish, what would they wish for and why? Encourage your child to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops in their writing.

 

Phonics

There are some really good letters and sounds video lessons for your child to watch on the following website.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuGr6z2H2KNHY2HITC9jV0a65ED0aD2Ry

The majority of the children in our class are beginning Phase 5 phonics and we suggest they watch the Year 1 Autumn term lessons 31 - 45.  Autumn Term Year 1 lessons - YouTube

We would recommend watching one video per day to help maintain the children's progress in phonics.

If you feel that these are a little bit tricky for your child they could watch Autumn term Reception lessons 40 - 50.  (5609) Lesson 40 (part 1) - Reception - YouTube

 

Spellings

Encourage your child to practise their weekly spellings by playing some games on Spelling Shed.

Maths

This week will be a revision week of 2D and 3D shapes. Here is a link to a lovely 2D shape song that we have watched before with children in school. It's one of those songs that will stay in your head and you'll probably be singing it all day!

The 2D shape song - KS1 Maths - BBC Bitesize

Discuss and name 2D shapes with your child and see if you can spot any around the house. Encourage your child to count how many sides each shape has. We refer to 2D shapes as flat shapes and 3D shapes as solid shapes.

The 3D shape song - KS1 Maths - BBC Bitesize

Discuss and name 3D shapes with your child and see if you can spot any around the house. Encourage your child to count how many faces each shape has. 

There are also some brilliant Year 1 daily maths video lessons available on the home learning section of the White Rose Maths website.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

We would recommend watching one video per day to help maintain the children's progress in maths.

 

Topic

Why not encourage your child to have a go at designing and making their own magic wand or a carriage using recycled materials which could be used to take Cinderella to the ball?

In school we check in daily with the children about how they are feeling and they select an emoji that best represents this. Talk to your child about how they are feeling. This is a strange time for all of us and not really the start to the new year that we were expecting. Your child will probably be missing their friends and be upset about not coming back to school. Here is a link to some short videos that may make it easier for your child to discuss their feelings. It’s OK not to be OK! - Oak National Academy (thenational.academy)

 

Make sure your child is keeping fit and healthy even though they can't go out very much. You could choose a Joe Wicks workout to do or maybe play a game of dodgeball with them, this is one of the children's favourite games in PE. On Wednesday Marcus Rashford is the Celebrity Supply Teacher on CBBC at 10:05am, why not encourage your child to do a workout with him?

 

Week beginning 4th January

English

This week we will be writing our own ‘Winter’ acrostic poems (where each line of poetry starts with a specific letter and those letters if read downwards spell a word).

We will also be reading the story ‘Snowflake Mistake’ by Lou Treleaven.

This week we will be a revision week where the children can practise their addition and subtraction skills. We will also be learning the months of the year and their order. The link for the song below is a particular favourite of the children in Class Basil especially the bit where they get to shout the months of the year! Apologies in advance!

Topic

The children will be learning how and when people celebrate the new year and watching the 2021 firework displays from London and Dubai.

 

We will also be going on a Winter senses walk. The children will also have the opportunity to develop their creative and fine motor skills by making paper snowflakes.
