a Pathway to Success

Thursday, 14th May

Good Morning Year 1!

Hope you are all well and continuing to work hard.

Phonics

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

Your phoneme to focus on today is u_e. Practice writing u_e. Can you think of any words that contain u_e? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdfBg1SMFzM

Practice reading and writing the following words that contain u_e: rude, huge, cube, June, tube, flute, . Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these u_e words? Please read through the attached flashcards with words containing u_e.

 

English

 

Today we want you to continue with your research of the world area for your class but also find two amazing facts about it.

 

I have found out a couple of amazing facts - there is NO LAND at the North Pole, it is covered in a thick layer of ice - in some places nearly 3 metres! 

If you want to find a meteorite go to Antarctica!

 

Well, who knew?!

 

Keep your research safe - you'll need it next week.

 

Maths

Warm-up =

Count in 2s,5s,10s.

Daily 10 – Level 1 > Addition >  Up to 20 – Adding ones.

 

Main Activity =

Hope the activity went well yesterday. Remember to keep practicing your recall of the days of the week and months of the year. Today you will be thinking about o’clock times. Can you remember what the minute hand must point to for an o’clock time? First practice reading and making o’clock times with somebody in your house. You can either use a toy clock if you have one or click on the following link https://www.visnos.com/demos/clock .

Then complete the worksheet drawing the hands on the clock and writing the times. Remember to think carefully about the length of your hands – one hand should be shorter than the other.

We have also attached an optional ‘matching times’ game. Cut out all of the cards, jumble them up and see if you can match up the cards correctly.

 

Science

You will now start thinking about different ways that we can group animals. First, we will start by grouping animals based on what they eat. We can group them into carnivores, omnivores and herbivores. Research what each of these terms means. There is a PowerPoint for you to run through before completing the activity and a nice video on the following link. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/z96vb9q

Complete the sorting activity. You might be best making a larger Venn diagram so you can fit all of the animals in opposed to using the one provided on the worksheet.
