Year 1 Learning Opportunities – Wednesday 20th 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: Sea Life Search

Australia is surrounded by three different oceans, facing the Indian Ocean to the west, the South Pacific to the east and the cold Southern Ocean to the south. This makes Australia home to some incredible marine environments and a huge range of amazing marine life. You could snorkel amongst tropical fish and coral in the north, swim with whale sharks in the west or watch seals and penguins laze and waddle on the beaches in the south. Whatever part of Australia’s coast you are visiting, you are sure to find an amazing marine experience.

Complete the attached ‘sea life’ word search or create your own sea life word search (using capital letters) for a relative at home to complete.

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

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.

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

Have fun!
