Friday 3rd April

Good morning. Welcome to the last day of home learning before the Easter holidays. We have posted lots of ideas underneath to keep you busy during the holidays but you don’t have to do any home learning. We would like you to keep your reading up though please.

English

Today we are going to be writing sentences. Sentences need to start with a capital letter and end with a full stop. They need finger spaces between each word and they need to make sense.

The words below are jumbled up. Put them into the correct order and write the correct sentence into your home learning book.

For part two use the words below to make your own sentence. You will need to add some additional words to make sure it makes sense.

For example: On Tuesday we are going on holiday to Spain.

Maths

Can you practise saying aloud your doubles and haves to 10. Double 1 is 2, half of 2 is one, double 2 is 4, half of 4 is 2.....

Today we are going to be looking at making arrays.

Click on the link below and watch the video of the lesson and try and answer the questions as you go along.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ 

I will post the link to the activities below at the bottom of the page. The answers will be there as well to check if you got each question right at the end.

Remember rows go across and columns go down.

  You could use pieces of pasta or sweets if you don't have counters or just little pieces of paper. 

Computing

You have access to a brilliant computer programme called purple mash at home. There are loads of different activities for you to try on there. 

Today I would like you to try and use the paint programme to create your own Easter egg.

Instructions for accessing PurpleMash:

1) Go to https://www.purplemash.com/sch/maybury-gu21

2) Type in the username and password (both are year1 with NO spaces)

3) Use the search bar to search ‘Easter’

4) Select the paint project Easter egg and have a go at creating your own.

I have posted my example one below. You can then save your creation and then email it to us. We would love to see them.

********** Happy Easter Holidays **********

We will not be setting daily home learning over the two week Easter holidays.  If the school remains closed after Easter, we will resume setting work on Monday 20th April.  In the meantime, try some of the below ideas that were set in the newsletter:

  • Have a tea party/indoor picnic for the people in your household.  Can you also create invitations and menus for it?
  • Build a den using blankets
  • Make sock puppets with old socks and create a little show
  • Make and decorate biscuits
  • Create a Easter egg or treasure hunt with clues
  • Look at family photos together
  • Make paper aeroplanes and have a race
  • Freeze toys in ice (put them in the freezer with some water) and then rescue them
  • Make up your own dance routine
  • Create your own computer art using Paint
  • Create something new using junk modelling

Or you might also like to create a happiness jar: 

If you don’t have a jar: a box, tub or bag will do.  Decorate it to make it look special for you.  Then add the things that make you happy to the jar on bits of paper. You can then get your jar out whenever you are feeling sad and it will remind you of all the happy things in your life.

In your home learning books draw the monster and then write some sentences describing it. There are some words and phrases to help you, but we love to hear your own ideas. Remember to write in full sentences starting with a capital letter, using finger spaces and don't forget to end with the correct punctuation that we practised yesterday. Here's one to help you start:

The monster is called Terry and he has very short legs.

 

PSHE - Learning for Life

Today I want you try and remember what you can about a healthy diet and how to stay healthy. It's very easy to snack more now that we are all at home but remember you still need to balance out all those food groups and remember the importance of exercise. There is a powerpoint presentation below about BEAR and BEAR really wants you all to be healthy like him.

 

Now draw some healthy snacks for BEAR in his snack boxes below. You can always print out his snack boxes to colour in at home by downloading below but it's just as good to draw your own.
