Good morning Year 1. Can you believe it’s the last day of this half term? I can’t! I’ve missed you all so much, but seeing your wonderful work on Seesaw every day cheers me up. I am so grateful to your wonderful parents and carers for all their hard work supporting you with your learning and to each of you for being brilliant and making the best of what has been a very strange and challenging time.
Maths Today we are going to continue with sharing equally. As always, have some little objects nearby so you can count them and share them into equal groups. Everything you need for the lesson is over on Seesaw. Please make sure you look through the pictures and think about those questions before you answer the questions in your yellow practice books.
English Today I would like you to go onto Seesaw and complete the reading comprehension set. Please read through the text with your child as there may be some challenging words or new vocabulary for them, they can then answer the questions.
If you have time then please log on to Teach your Monster to Read and practise your phonics for 15 minutes.
Enchanted Woodland Topic You’ve all done such lovely work for our Enchanted Woodland topic. I’ve loved seeing your woodland crowns, your land art, your wonderful maps, your “save the trees” posters and all your amazing hedgehogs.
This afternoon, to finish off our topic, I’d like you to think a little bit about the smallest creatures in a woodland or a garden. Have you ever looked down and seen ant scuttle by? Or a family of woodlice disappear into a dark corner? What is your favourite mini-beast? If you can go for a walk today or over the weekend, have a careful peek amongst the leaves and grass and see what you can find. Remember, mini-beasts are living creatures and we must treat them respectfully, and let them stay in their home. Don’t pick them up, and if you move a log or a stone to find something, always put it back. Can you sketch and label some of the mini-beasts you find and upload your sketches to Seesaw?
Use this guide to help you name the creatures you see and this website to find out more:
One final activity before half term begins, can you draw a smiling rainbow like this?
Have a lovely half term Year 1. Look after your families and keep being brilliant!
