Good Morning Year 1!

Phonics

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

Your phoneme to focus on today is ea when it is pronounced as ‘e’ as in bread. Practice writing ea.

Practice reading and writing the following words that contain ea: head, bread, thread, spread, health . Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these ea words?

 

English

Today, Wednesday and Thursday your focus will be using your research from last week to create a non-fiction book. 

 

You are going to be an author, editor and publisher!

 

Here is a list of things that you will need to include in your book to make sure it is a quality text that your grown ups will want to buy!

 

Front Cover - Title, Name of Author (that's you!) and a fantastic illustration or picture that will make people want to buy it!

 

Back Cover - Blurb, picture and definitely a price!  Better the book, higher the price!

 

Contents Page - the list at the beginning of the book showing what is in each section and what page to find it on - makes it easier for the reader to find the information they want.

 

First Page - Introduction (that will be the sub-heading of the page) - what's this book about - include an illustration, picture or photograph.

 

The following pages - use your research - give each page a sub-heading and include pictures, maps, photographs and illustrations.  Also, get those fantastic facts in there - put them in a cloud or a flash to make them stand out!  The more attractive and eye-catching your book is, more people will want to buy it and read it. A non-fiction text is not like a story it doesn't have to be in a particular order to make sense.

 

REMEMBER THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF BEING A GOOD WRITER IS READING AND CHECKING WHAT YOU HAVE WRITTEN - that it makes sense and the speeling is correct!

 

Can't wait to see the finished product!

Main Activity =

How did you get on with half past times yesterday? We looked at time not long before we finished so hopefully it was a nice reminder.

Start off by answering these time fact questions -

How many seconds are in 1 minute? How many minutes are in 1 hour? How many hours are in 1 day? How many days are in a week? How many days are in 2 weeks? How many weeks are in 1 year? How many days are in a year? How many months are in a year? Name the days of the week. Name the months of the year.

Today you will be looking at questions that show a time and ask you what the time would it be 1 hour earlier/later. E.g. if it is 2 o’clock now, what time will it be in one hour? Practice some of these questions with someone in your house before moving onto the worksheet.

Here is a game you might want to play after completing your worksheet:
