# Monday 1st March- Year One Home Learning

Good Morning Year One!

We hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend. Its our FINAL WEEEKKKKK! Yipeeee!

We are looking forward to seeing you on our Google Meets session, this morning.

This weeks focus, will be on the story of ‘The Queen’s Hat‘, written by Steve Anthony.

Have a listen to the story, read by the author, Steve Anthony, himself!

Royal Duty No.1- English

Imagine you are going to meet the queen.

What questions would you like to ask her?

Notice the the beautiful hat she is wearing in the picture below.

Royal Duty No.2- Maths

Estimation

Today, we are going to look at the term ‘Estimation‘. Do you know what it means to estimate something?

Estimating means roughly calculating or judging a number or value. Its like making a reasonable guess. By the word ‘reasonable’ that means you use your prior knowledge to make an accurate guess.

For example, if i was asked to estimate the amount of apple in this picture, I would look at how many roughly i think there are. If I said “100” this wouldn’t be a reasonable guess, as I know that 100 items would look a lot more than the amount of apple I can see below. Whereas, an estimation of “15” would be a more reasonable guess/ estimation.

Take a look at the video below to see more estimation in action.

Your task today is to estimate how many soldiers (Grenadier Guards) you think there roughly are on each of the pages.

Create a table below to record your estimation data.

Royal Duty No.3- Phonics

Using a dice, roll a number and read the corresponding Tricky Word. See how many tricky words you can read and tick off in one game. You can choose a time limit to suit you for this game.
