Year 1 Learning Opportunities – Thursday 23rd April

Good morning Year 1!

Here is a list of the learning opportunities for today. Have fun!

Kind Regards,

The Year 1 Team

English: Naming Nouns!

Listen to the noun song:

Make a list of different nouns (at least 4 of each person, place or thing). Children cut them out and stick them in the correct place. 

Challenge: Can they add any of their own nouns?

Maths: Greater than, less than!

Children listen to short song to demonstrate greater than and less than.

Write a range of numbers on pieces of paper or card, including numbers with same digits but in different order, for example: 17. 71 or 29. 92 or 134. 314. This will also check their understanding of place value. Pick 2 numbers and use the peg alligator made yesterday to eat the biggest number… Beware, he is very hungry today!

Challenge: Choose higher numbers, including hundreds and thousands.

Other: Throwing Challenge… Start with the container as close as possible, move further away each time the ball goes in. What’s the furthest distance the ball can be thrown? What happens if you change the size of the container?

PHONICS: This weeks focus: zz, qu, ch (Phase 3 revision).

Phonics Play is offering free subscription during school closure. This enables you and the children to have full access to the Phonics Play resources. Please spend some time, this week, to familiarise with the site and resources.

Any online game must be checked first by an adult and closely monitored. Children also benefit from applying the sounds they are learning through writing them into sentences as well as reading them.

READING: Oxford Reading Owl is a free resource that has increased its available resources during school closure. It has a fantastic selection of Oxford Reading books for the children to read at their level.

  1. Follow the link:
  2. Click on ‘Browse E-books’
  3. Click on ‘free e-book library’. 
  4. Choose a book

As well as listening to the children read, it also benefits them to hear adults read and discuss the story.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: As well as having fun in the garden for daily exercise (throwing and catching, running, skipping, bouncing on a trampoline, etc), some other fun routines for the children to follow are:

  1. Wake Up, Shake Up Lazytown
  2. Cosmic Kids Yoga.
  3. Joe Wicks Daily PE lessons.

These can be typed into a search engine by an adult who will then need to monitor them.

Have fun!
