Year 1 Learning Opportunities – Wednesday 13th May

Good morning Year 1!

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

Kind Regards,

The Year 1 Team!

English:  (Over 2 days – Day 2): Finish writing your ‘surprise’ story.

Read through what you have written so far then think about and discuss what you want to write next.

Challenge: Can you include an ‘and, but, because’ conjunction to join 2 simple sentences together? Can you include an adverb (quickly ran)? Can you include an adjective (blue hat)?

Remember: Finger spaces, capital letter at the start of a sentence, a full stop or an exclamation mark at the end of a sentence.Additional Activity (optional): Draw and colour a picture of one of the characters in your story. Label it using adjectives (blue hat) and adverbs (quickly runs)

Maths: Wednesday Workout!

Counting in 2s, 5s, 10s, Number facts to 10 and 20, 1 more/1 less, days of the week, Months of the year, ordering numbers, odd and even numbers, Problem of the day! Please follow attached PDF or PowerPoint below.

Other: Handa SAYS

When you say, “Handa says jump on the spot,” players have to jump on the spot. If you say, “jump on the spot,” without saying Handa Says, players are not to follow the command. If they do, then they are out.  Ideas for commands are: jumping on one foot, running in one spot, doing star jumps, crawling on the belly, sit-ups, etc.

PHONICS: Please see the attached PDF for this week’s daily phonic sessions and support structure.  This is to guide parents when supporting their child with phonics and will be most effective if it is done every day.

Phase 5: ou, ir, alternative pronunciation for ‘er’ and ‘y’

Useful phonics websites: (An adult must always check these)                                                     

READING: Oxford Reading Owl 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, 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.
  4. Andy’s Wild Workouts
  5. GoNoodle (YouTube videos)

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

Have fun!
