Here you will find the instructions for your phonics/reading session. You will also need your sounds book (set 2/3) to support these activities. The link 3 for the phonics game can be found below too.

The optional reading comprehension PDF can also be found below (Sycamore 17.7.20 – Reading – The sick dragon). The reading and questions are on 2 separate PDF files.

Remember, if you get stuck on a word use the rule:

  • Special friends
  • Fred talk
  • Read the word

If the word is too long and you’re finding it tricky then cover part of the word and sound that part out before moving your hand to read the last part.

Writing

 

 

 

You are learning to write sentences using a capital letter and a full stop.

 

You are learning to extend your sentences using and or because.

Today your child is going to continue writing their own fairy tale story carrying on from what they wrote yesterday.

  1. Encourage your child to read through their work from yesterday to remind themselves of what their story was about.
  2. Your child needs to continue writing sentences in their story.  Remind your child to use the story word mat to support their writing. (This PDF was attached with yesterday’s daily planner).
  3.  

Remember to ‘pinch your sounds’ when writing a longer word.

 

Re-read your work to check that it makes sense.

 

Check your capital letters and full stops.

 

 

Maths

 

 

You are learning to solve problems with position and direction.

Follow the link 4 to the White Rose website. Most days your child will complete a lesson by watching a video and then having a go at the sheet which links with the clip. The sheet for today’s lesson can be found below (Sycamore 17.7.20 – Maths).

Parents: If you are unable to print the sheet then your child can write/draw their answers in their orange homework books. Please encourage your child to write the short date above today’s work in their books.

 

Basic maths facts

You are learning to partition numbers into tens and ones.

Click on link 5 below which will take you to ‘Place value basketball’. You can choose the level to start on, but I would suggest working on the lower numbers first and then working your way up. To play this game you need to look at the pieces and work out what number is being represented. Then, click on the basketball with the number you think is correct.

Support: The longer sticks represent a 10 and then each small square represents a 1.

Therefore, if the picture showed two long sticks and five small squares this would be 25.

Topic work

 

 

Movie afternoon

This afternoon we will be choosing a film to watch in school. Maybe you could make a cosy den or find some blankets and cushions to sit in whilst you watch a film of your choice at home.

Writing

 

 

 

You are learning to write sentences using a capital letter and a full stop.

 

You are learning to extend your sentences using and or because.

Over the next two days your child is going to write their own fairy tale story.

  1. Before they start writing, encourage them to think carefully about the following:
  • Which characters will be in your story?
  • Where will your story be set?
  • What will happen at the start, in the middle and then at the end of your story?

Your child could write some simple notes on another piece of paper to remind themselves of their ideas when they come back to their work tomorrow.

  1. Once they are happy with their ideas they can begin to write their story using the PDF file – Story writing frame.  Encourage them to use the story word mat to support their writing.

Select level 2 (Read time to the hour and half an hour) to begin with and then if your child would like more of a challenge then they can try some of the other levels.

Parents: I would recommend leaving the clock at 12 hour clock as the children have not been taught 24 hour digital time yet. If you feel your child will be confident with 24 hours then they are welcome to have a go!

Topic work

You are learning to build a simple shelter.

Today I would like you to have a go at building a shelter for a little toy of yours. This could be inside with newspaper, Lego or even a pack of cards. If you have a garden (and it’s dry!) you could build a little shelter using only things you can find on the ground such as twigs and leaves. Click on the PDF below to see some ideas.

Now it’s time to see if it can withstand the Wolf’s huff and puff! To do this try huffing and puffing yourself or waft it with a magazine or small book.

I would love to see your shelter building so please take a photo and either share this on the class blog or send it to our class email.

You are learning to use your phonic sounds to spell words correctly.

Over the course of this week your child is going to design and create a house advertisement linked to the story of the 3 little pigs. Today they will be focusing on different materials and adjectives they could use to describe them.

  1. Go through the PowerPoint which has been saved as a PDF below (English – Materials). What words could you use to describe each material? Can you think of any other materials? (e.g. clay, rubber, paper etc.)
  2. Next, they need to decide on the materials they will use for the items listed in the table (see English PDF – Materials for their house). Encourage your child to use a range of materials. Then, in the next column your child needs to write an adjective which matches this material (e.g. wood and hard).

Parents: If you are unable to print the sheet then your child can write/draw their answers in their orange homework books. Please encourage your child to write the short date above today’s work in their books.

You are learning to write sentences using and to join your ideas.

 

You are learning to use a range of adjectives.

 

Today your child is going to write about an adventure under the sea. It is up to them how they write this. They can either write a story using the sentence starter:

One day deep down under the sea

Alternatively, they can just write sentences to describe what they can see.

I can see…

They can use the picture at the top of the English – Sea Adventure PDF file to get them started.

Basic maths facts

You are learning to partition numbers into tens and ones.

Click on link 5 below which will take you to ‘Place value basketball’. You can choose the level to start on, but I would suggest working on the lower numbers first and then working your way up. To play this game you need to look at the pieces and work out what number is being represented. Then, click on the basketball with the number you think is correct.

Support: The longer sticks represent a 10 and then each small square represents a 1.

Therefore, if the picture showed two long sticks and five small squares this would be 25.

Topic work

 

 

You are learning to listen carefully to spot instruments in pirate shanti songs.

Click on the topic link 6 below and listen to the pirate songs. As you are listening make notes of what instruments you think you can hear.

Use the link 7 for instruments below to listen to what they sound like.

Which is your favourite pirate music? Why?

Did any of them sound familiar?

Use words and sentences like:

It made me think of…

It sounded dramatic when…

Use words such as volume, pitch and tempo (see definitions below).

Volume - how loud it sounds

Pitch - high and low notes

Tempo - how fast or slow the music sounds

Challenge: you could create a piece of art work as you listen to show how it makes you feel or think.

 

 

You could also have a go at drawing some other sea creatures by clicking on the art tutorial below (link 8).

You are learning to extend your sentences using and or because.

Today your child is going to write sentences about why Tiddler was late.

  1. Begin by listening to the story of Tiddler (link 4 below). Encourage your child to listen carefully to some of the reasons as to why Tiddler is late to school.
  2. Discuss with your child some of the reasons and then get them to think of other reasons as to why he could have been late. It can be as elaborate as they like!
  3. Then, on the English PDF sheet below get your child to write their ideas down into sentences. They can use the sentence starter:

Tiddler was late because…

  1. They can finish their sheet by drawing a picture at the bottom if they want to.

 

Remember to ‘pinch your sounds’ when writing a longer word.

 

Re-read your work to check that it makes sense.

 

Check your capital letters and full stops.

Basic maths facts

You are learning to quickly recognise odd and even numbers.

Follow the link 5 below to play the game, ‘catch a star’. You will need to read the numbers and then decide whether this number is odd or even.

 

Look at The Moon. If it says 'odd' you need to catch only odd numbers. If it says 'even' you should only catch even numbers. Every 30 seconds or so The Moon will change. Move the chimney to catch the numbers.

Topic work

You are learning to create a rocket.

For today’s activity you will need some junk modelling materials (e.g. recycled toilet rolls, plastic containers, tissue paper, coloured paper etc.). Have a go at making a rocket.  Think about what the rocket needs for example: wings, rocket launchers etc.

The YouTube video (Link 6) below gives an idea of how you could make it, but you do not have to use it and you can make your own.

-Think about what you will use to stick

Here are some important things to remember:

Keeping Physically Active

You are learning to keep physically active. 

Joe Wicks (AKA the Body Coach) is running a daily physical activity session to support children with their physical wellbeing whilst they are at home. Follow link 1 below to take part in Joe Wick’s live PE lesson. 

  • Follow the instructions carefully, this will keep you safe.
  • Stop if you think you might have injured yourself.

Exercise helps our bodies and our minds stay healthy.

Exercising each day, helps you develop strength and fitness over time.  

Ask an adult in your house to help you find the right website.

Reading/Phonics

You are learning how to read and write using your phonic sounds.

 

 

 

Your sound of the day is ee (What can you see?). Link 2 below will take you to Mrs Tawn speed sound session. Watch this before clicking on the document below (Sycamore 11.6.20 - Phonics). Here you will find the instructions for your phonics/reading session. You will also need your sounds book (set 2/3) to support these activities. The link 3 for the phonics game can be found below too.

The optional reading comprehension PDF can also be found below (Sycamore 11.6.20 – Reading – All About Beaches).

Remember, if you get stuck on a word use the rule:

  • Special friends
  • Fred talk
  • Read the word

If the word is too long and you’re finding it tricky then cover part of the word and sound that part out before moving your hand to read the last part.

Writing

 

 

 

You are learning to write an acrostic poem using adjectives.

 

Today your child is going to write an acrostic poem about Dinosaurs.

  1. Look at the PDF below (English Poem PowerPoint) to understand what an acrostic poem is.
  2. Then your child needs to use the English worksheet below to create their own acrostic poem about dinosaurs.

Parents: Encourage your child to use their word mat from Monday’s writing session.

Parents: If you are unable to print the sheets then your child can write/draw their answers in their orange homework books. Please encourage your child to write the short date above today’s work in their books.

 

Remember to ‘pinch your sounds’ when writing a longer word.

Re-read your work to check that it makes sense.

 

Maths

 

You are learning to measure length.

Follow the link 4 to the White Rose website. Most days your child will complete a lesson by watching a video and then having a go at the sheet which links with the clip. The sheet for today’s lesson can be found below (Sycamore 11.6.20 – Maths).

 

Today you need to click on Summer Term – Week 5, Lesson 3 – Measure length

(Ignore the w/c dates on the website)

 

Parents: If you are unable to print the sheet then your child can write/draw their answers in their orange homework books. Please encourage your child to write the short date above today’s work in their books.

 

 

Basic maths facts

You are learning to tell the time to the hour and half an hour.

Click on link 5 below. You will need to scroll past the writing until you see the game with the teddy bear and clock face. Click on the play button. Select level 2 (Read time to the hour and half an hour) to begin with and then if your child would like more of a challenge then they can try some of the other levels.

 

Parents: I would recommend leaving the clock at 12 hour clock as the children have not been taught 24 hour digital time yet. If you feel your child will be confident with 24 hours then they are welcome to have a go!

Topic work

You are learning to investigate colours.

Click on the link 6 below and watch the art lesson. Today I would like you to complete the first activity and to do so you will need an egg box or a small container/box of some kind.

Writing

You are learning to read a text with adult support.

 

You are learning to write sentences using because.

 

Today your child is going to write about where they would want to go if they could travel like T-rex in the story.

  1. Read the Dear Dinosaur book by clicking on the PDF below (English story). Your child will most likely need help with reading this. Adults: you can read the whole story to them, if preferred, as the focus of this task is the writing part.
  2. After reading the story, get your child to think about where they would like to go and why. This could be the same as somewhere T-rex goes in the story.
  3. Your child then needs to use the sheet (Sycamore 10.6.20 – English worksheet) to write about where they would like to go and why. I have included a sentence starter at the top to get them started. There is also space at the bottom for them to draw a picture of where they want to go.

Parents: If you are unable to print the sheets then your child can write/draw their answers in their orange homework books. Please encourage your child to write the short date above today’s work in their books.

 

 

Remember to ‘pinch your sounds’ when writing a longer word.

 

Re-read your work to check that it makes sense.

 

Check your capital letters and full stops.

 

 

Maths

You are learning to revise your year 1 Maths knowledge.

Every Wednesday, your child will need to complete a Maths activity mat. This will incorporate a range of skills which they will have learnt in the classroom. Today’s activity mat can be found below (Sycamore 10.6.20 – Maths).

 

 

Parents: If you are unable to print the sheet then your child can write/draw their answers in their orange homework books. Please encourage your child to write the short date above today’s work in their books.

Basic maths facts

You are learning to partition numbers into tens and ones.

Click on link 4 below which will take you to ‘Place value basketball’. You can choose the level to start on, but I would suggest working on the lower numbers first and then working your way up. To play this game you need to look at the pieces and work out what number is being represented. Then, click on the basketball with the number you think is correct.

Support: The longer sticks represent a 10 and then each small square represents a 1.

Therefore, if the picture showed two long sticks and five small squares this would be 25.

Topic work

You are learning to follow simple instructions to draw a health hero.

Click on link 5 below to draw a health hero. You could write a little note underneath your picture such as ‘Thank you NHS workers!’ and put this in your window to say thank you to all our incredible health workers.

Remember you can share your amazing drawings with me via the email:  sycamore@newtown.wilts.sch.uk. I would love to see them. 😊

There are lots of different drawing videos on this channel if you would like to have a go at drawing more!
