a Pathway to Success

Monday, 18th May

Good Morning Year 1!

We hope you had a lovely weekend!



Complete ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’ on the Phonics Play website. Play ‘Reading Robot’.

Your phoneme to focus on today is ow. Practice writing ow. This phoneme can make 2 sounds ow as in cow and ow as in snow.  Today we will focus on ow as in snow.

Practice reading and writing the following words that contain ow:  snow, throw, bowl, pillow, grow, window, follow, yellow. Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these ow words?



It's Monday so that means it's spelling, punctuation and grammar!
Today you are going to concentrate on writing four sentences of each type -
A statement - a sentence that gives information.  Remember to end this sentence with a full stop.
A question - when you ask somebody something.  What punctuation do you put at the end of question?
A command - telling somebody to do something.  Depending on the kind of command it can end with a full stop or an exclamation mark.  A command usually starts with a verb - if you want to be polite you could start with please.
An exclamation - when something has shocked, excited, made you cross, made you happy - and of course we end it with an exclamation mark!
Finally, the most important part of doing any writing is to read it and check it.
Your sentences will be based on the picture provided.
Don't forget you can upload your work to your portfolio on Class Dojo.

Main Activity =

Today you will be thinking about half past times. Can you remember what the difference is between the minute hand and the hour hand? Which number does the minute hand point to for half past times? Practice reading and making half past times either using a toy clock or the online version you were directed to last week. We have also attached a short PowerPoint to introduce this if you want to look at it.

You have 2 worksheets to complete – the first worksheet you must write what time is shown on the clock, the second worksheet you must draw the hands on the clock (remember one hand should be longer than the other and use a ruler to make sure you have got straight lines).

We have also attached a telling the time board game for you to have a go at if you want to.
