Good Morning Year 1!



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

Your phoneme to focus on today is g when it is pronounced as ‘j’ as in gem. Practice writing g.

Practice reading and writing the following words that contain g: gem, gel, giant, magic, tragic, page, stage, huge. Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these g words?



Today, we want you to continue with your non-fiction book about The Rainforest, Desert or The Poles. 

The children at school made a great start to their books yesterday.



Warm-up =

Daily Ten. Level 1 > Subtraction > Up to 20.

Count in 2s, 5s, 10s.

Main Activity =

Over the past few days you have done a lot of work on o’clock and half past times. We are aware that you will all be at different levels with this. If you feel like you have not yet mastered o’clock and half past times please continue working on these times for the next couple of days. If on the other hand you feel that you have a good understanding of these times we would like to challenge you a little bit more. Today we would like you to think about quarter past times. Discuss with an adult what a quarter is (you have already done in this in school) and using that knowledge where might the minute hand point when it is quarter past? 

Practice reading and making these times on a clock first thinking very carefully about where each of the hands should be.

Then complete the attached worksheet.
