For example, you might compare a pencil and a rubber and find the pencil is 5 paperclips long but the rubber is 1 paperclip long. It’s important that you have several of the item you’ve chosen to measure with and that they are all the same size. You could try paperclips, lego bricks, spoons or tins (depending of course on the size of the objects or people you are measuring!). Remember also to line up your measuring objects next to the item without any gaps all the way from the start to the end!

 

Topic- Science

  • Take a walk and go on a tree leaf hunt. How many different types of tree leaf can you find? Most of the trees you will see are deciduous- this means they lose their leaves during the autumn and they grow back again in the spring. Can you find any evergreen leaves? These come from trees which keep their leaves all year round. The leaves tend to be thicker and darker green. Remember to keep the leaves you find for tomorrow.

Here is a link to sheet that you could use to help you name the tree leaves you find: https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/media/48345/leaf-id-sheet.pdf

  • Yesterday you wrote out a set of instructions about how to make a cheese and jam sandwich. Can you think of something simple that you know how to do and that you could explain to some one else how to do? Maybe it’s how to put dolly to bed, how to ride a bike or how to make a smoothie? Try doing your activity or just pretending a few times, saying out loud what you are doing at the same time.

Maths

  • Click on the below link to watch the White Rose Maths lesson on length and height and then answer the questions from the sheet underneath.

https://vimeo.com/417730894

 

  • Yesterday you did some measuring using objects of the same size. If you have a ruler at home, try comparing the length and height of objects using this instead. Remember to line the ruler up with the object and make sure the object starts at zero. Where does the object end? Try saying sentences like “The pencil is 12 cm long.” You could also use comparing language like “taller than”, “shorter than”, “longer than” and “the same”.

 

Topic- Art

  • Use the leaves you found yesterday to make a collage. Can you make the leaves into the shape of a face?

 

Thursday:

English

Practise the sound er

er- a better letter

Read the words-

never         after        corner        better

Then try and spell the words.  Remember to use your Fred talk.

 

  • Yesterday you thought of a simple activity that you could give instructions so someone else could do it too! Try splitting your instructions into 4-6 steps. Ask your adult to cut out enough pieces of paper so that you can draw each step. When you have drawn them all, ask some one to mix them all up for you so you can then lay them out in the right order. Say each step as you lay it out. Handy hint: instructions start with a bossy word that tells the person what to do e.g. put, close, open, kick, walk, sing e.t.c. Keep your drawings safe for tomorrow.

 

Maths

  • Click on the below link to watch the White Rose Maths lesson on mass and weight and then answer the questions from the sheet underneath.

https://vimeo.com/417731358

 

  • Today we want you to investigate weight. Look around your house for some different objects and predict which weigh more, less or the same. Try picking them up to see which feel heavier or lighter. If you have some scales at home you can check to see if you were right! Challenge: can you find an object that is bigger BUT also lighter than another object??

 

 

Topic- Computing

 

  • Play this game which introduces the idea of algorithms and links to our science from last term:

https://barefootgames.org/sorting?ref=https://www.barefootcomputing.org/homelearning?utm_source=2nd+Content+Launch+Data+Send&utm_campaign=ff16a1e7b5-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2nd+Content+launch+send&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_80a593cad9-ff16a1e7b5-30190948

 

  • OR try this activity which also introduces algorithms as a set of rules that need to be very clear:

Invent a game to play around the house and write or speak out the rules (an algorithm) for a family member. Do your rules explain everything about how to play? Are there any loop holes?

 

Friday:

English

  • Read a story.
  • Daily phonics:

Practise the sound air

air – that’s not fair.

Read the words- an adult could write these words on pieces of paper for the child to see.

fair    hair     chair     stair

Then try and spell the words. Remember to use your Fred talk.

 

  • Using your pictures from yesterday, have a go at laying them out in order again and saying the instruction for each. On a new piece of paper, have a go at writing a sentence for each picture so that you create a set of instructions. Remember to use your sounds to spell words and don’t forget a capital letter at the start of your sentence and a full stop for the end. When you’ve finished and checked your work, you could give the instructions to a family member to follow. Did your instructions work?!

 

Maths

https://uk.ixl.com/math/year-1/measure-using-objects

https://uk.ixl.com/math/year-1/light-and-heavy

 

  • Recap your number bonds to 10 (or to 20) from last week. You could write them out, say them orally e.g. “6 and 4 make 10” or use number cards to make a game e.g. you could play snap by shouting “snap” when the 2 cards put down add up to 10 (or to 20).

 

Topic- Geography

  • In today’s geography lesson you will learn about compass directions. This task would work best in the garden (or park). Create a mnemonic to remember north, east, south, west e.g. Naughty Elephants Squirt Water. Ask an adult to help you work out which direction is which. If it’s a sunny day, south is where you see the sun at midday. Start in the middle of your garden. Ask a family member to call out the different compass directions. Can you use your mnemonic to help you run to the right place? You might like to try hiding something in the garden and then giving a family member instructions to find it e.g. walk 5 steps north then 3 steps south.

 

We hope you have an excellent week!

Thank you to those who have shared their fantastic work with us- it put a smile on our faces! If you haven’t already, we would love to see what you have been up to whilst at home. You could email us and send some photos to KS1@whitemoor.nottingham.sch.uk or tweet us @whitemoorschool. We look forward to hearing from you.

Maths

  • Access Whiterosemaths home learning and complete the videos and worksheets daily. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
  • Year 1 began to count in twos last term. This week encourage your child to spot things that come in pairs (think bicycle wheels, Kit Kats and socks!) and count how many of them. To get them counting in twos try getting them to count in ones first but whispering/saying the odd numbers in their head. With enough practice of saying “2, 4, 6, 8…” out loud they should soon memorize it. Try counting in twos up to 20. This website has lessons and activities about counting in twos: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkjv382

Games you can play:

  • Have a go at playing “Blast Off”- select the “find the number” “direct”  option for “10 to 20” or “10 to 30”. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/blast-off

 

 Topic

  • Simba and me- Continue to complete one or two tasks a week from the sheet in your pack.
  • Create a seasons tree. Draw a big tree on a piece of paper and split the tree into 4 sections (your adult may want to do this part!). Then make each section the tree in a different season e.g. blossom in spring, leaves and fruit in summer, orange leaves in autumn and bare branches with snow in winter. You could use crayons, paint or collage to do this. See picture below. Talk about the differences between the seasons as you complete this task.

 

 PE

  • Do some exercise 3 times a week

You could try creating an obstacle course/circuit in the back garden with whatever equipment you can find e.g. in and out of a hula hoop, balance a tennis ball on a bat and steps up and down on a secure object or just tasks that involve no equipment e.g. star jumps, pencil rolls or high knees.

 

Have a great week.
