Daily Fun Facts:
Our daily ‘Fun Fact’ via Marvellous Me will be continuing this week… Enjoy!
This week we would love it if you could send in some photos of your child reading in interesting, unusual and unique places! Please send this to your teach via the year group email...
Happy Monday Year 1, these are your activities for today.
For English, we are going to be using the fantastic resources from the BBC Bitesize website. All you have to do is click this link and it will take you to their website. On here you will follow the step by step guide to the lesson. You will need your exercise book / paper and also make sure you watch the videos! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhr7mfr
Watch these Youtube videos to make sure that you are pronouncing the Phase 5 sounds correctly! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3S5sJw7MfI
Attached on the website is a document that have sentences in and they focus on the ‘ou’ and ‘o-e’ split digraph sounds. Please read through the sentences and highlight any words that have these digraphs in. Once you have done this, please practise the spelling of the tricky words – write them each 5 times so it helps you to remember!
Attached you will find handwriting guidelines for your child to practise their best letter formation, using Langshott script. Please make sure the main body of font starts in the pink section of the handwriting sheet. The ascender of the letter ‘d’ for example goes upwards to the blue dashed top line and the descender of the letter ‘g’ for example goes downwards to the bottom blue dashed line. We will not set words for handwriting as these should be personalised for your child. It would be great if you could ask your child to practise the words that they were unfamiliar with from the Year 1 / 2 Common Exception Words and combine this handwriting task with the spelling task below.
Test your child on the spellings they’ve been practising. Continue to practise these spellings at home until your child has learnt them! Use the tips and tricks for how to help your children learn to spell words. When they are confident with the spellings, you can then move onto different words. Today might be a good day to begin new spellings as it’s a new week!
This week we will be using the BBC Bitesize website for our maths learning. Please click on this link and it will take you to the website. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z69fy9q . This activity is all about tens and units (called ones in this document). You will then need to watch the videos.
In music today we are going to be looking at body percussion using the BBC Bitesize website https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zb9djhv
