Home learning for Friday, May 15th
Below you will find all you need for today's home learning
Well done Year One!
 
We just want to say how incredibly proud we are of you all for continuing to persevere with your learning at home. Your creativity and imaginative ways of demonstrating your individual learning journeys has blown our minds!!!
 
We've all been down in that learning pit at some point, even us teachers, rummaging around at the bottom trying to find a way out. It might be because of a tricky maths problem or that you can't find the right adjective to put in your sentence. It could be that particular digraph which you can pronounce two different ways! What is that about? Or you might be struggling with those new spellings. Whatever the problem is, there will always be a way to solve it.
 
You just have to stop, take a breath, take a break, think about it again, ask for help, use resources....... whatever you choose to do is absolutely fine.
 
Continue to be resilient and try again. Continue to be innovative in your approach, because looking at things from a different angle can sometimes help. Continue to ask for help when you need it because sharing ideas is a great way to learn. Continue to be your excellent selves and always take pride in what you do. 
 
                       Continue to inspire one another each and every day.

Enquiry Friday 15th May

Good morning Eagles & Kestrels. We are super impressed, and a little bit envious of how well your beans, peas and cress are coming on. You clearly all have very green fingers, or perhaps your seeds were magic and you’re secretly growing giant bean and pea stalks??? Ummm very mysterious! We are also enjoying reading your observations and seeing the detailed drawings in your diary entries. Keep it up because we only have one more week of our experiment left.

In today’s lesson we will be looking at where our food actually comes from. Is it Tescos, Co-op or somewhere else? Let the pdf and powerpoint guide you through the lesson and then you’ll be ready for the task at the end.

Can you find out where the food in your cupboard comes from? Look for the country of origin information on the packaging. Use the Map of the World to show where things come from or write a list, it’s up to you.

Don't forget to share your learning on Seesaw or via the usual email address, staff @hillcrest.bristol.sch.uk because we like seeing what you've been up to.

Have fun!

Maths - Thursday 14th May
Good morning year ones. How lovely it was to see all your hard work yesterday as we celebrated all things mathematical! Your creative responses to the maths activities were great - well done! 
We were inspired during our class zoom to create a repeated pattern and so today, you're having a break from all things number based. I would like you to create a beautiful repeated pattern. Use all your artistic skills to produce something unique. You can make these as complex or simple as you like using paint, scrap paper, pencils, anything you like! There is lots of inspiration on the internet. Explore and have fun! 
Best wishes 
Mrs Howells

Water Phonics Roulette Terms and Conditions
Users play the game at their own risk. Hillcrest Primary School will not be held responsible for any tears or damaged items instead the blame will lie squarely with Mr McIntyre. Have fun and share videos of you or your family getting wet on Seesaw!
RE Thursday 14th May
In today's lesson Abbie Owl will try to explain why blessings and prayers are such an important element of the Shabbat celebrations. Let Abbie Owl guide you through the lesson whilst you continue to be your inquisitive selves by asking and answering questions. 
The task at the end involves you using what you've learnt about Shabbat to imagine what a 'special meal' with your classmates would look like. What will you eat and drink? What will you do at this event? Be as creative as you can, draw a picture of your special meal, write a menu, create a guest list and seating plan. The challenge is to create your own blessing or poem to be read at the imaginary meal.
 
We look forward to seeing and reading your work on Seesaw or via email - staff@hillcrest.bristol.sch.uk

Good morning Year ones.

Today is National Numeracy Day and you are going to be spending the day being Marvellous Mathematicians! Below you will find lots of fun maths activities for the day ahead. Don’t feel you have to do them all but try to have a go whenever you can. Eagles we'll see you later for our Zoom. Today will be a maths quiz so have a pen and paper at the ready with your mathematical brains switched on! 

I’ve attached the family activities from the National Numeracy web-site which involves using maths within your home. I know I keep repeating myself but maths really is all around us and the more we use it, the more confident we become as mathematicians 

Enjoy your day everyone, keep flying high and remember to email if you have any questions. I’ve really enjoyed reading your feedback about maths confidence – many thanks We’re really looking forward to seeing all your responses to the tasks below so post when you can on Seesaw or email them to your teacher directly.  

Best Wishes

Storytime with Mrs Flook - Wednesday 13th May

Morning Eagles & Kestrels! I hope you've all had a stretch, a shake and now you're wide awake?

In celebration of National Numeracy Day and all things maths related I thought instead of reading you another story I'd like to share a poem by Carol Ann Duffy.  Now, you may well be thinking Mrs Flook has gone mad, 'What on earth has maths got to do with poetry' I hear you whisper. Well, it turns out that maths is all around us!!! I know, crazy huh? It's in our homes, in our games, it's there when we go shopping and even when we walk up the stairs to go to bed. So, with that in mind I'd like to challenge you to switch your listening ears to full volume, enjoy the beautiful poem and see if you can solve the maths problems at the end.

You are all magnificent mathematicians so why not give it a go...

Questions:

1. How many birds are in a tree?

2. There are six verses in the poem and in each one I read the word 'laugh' three times. How many times in total did I say 'laugh'?

3. How many dwarves are singing in verse six?

4. How many animals are mentioned in the poem altogether?

 I have attached an adapted version of the poem for you to reread after you watch the video.

SPESCH Tuesday 12th May
Today our SPESCH lesson is all about friendship. We've all had days when, for whatever reason we've fallen out with our friend or friends. This can often leave us feeling upset, frustrated, angry, or all of those things at once. With that in mind Jigsaw Jo wants to help you find ways to resolve conflict and mend friendships. She needs you to listen, to ask and answer questions, to share your learning and to come up with creative solutions together.
 
The attached pdf will guide you through the lesson and explain what you need to do to complete the task at the end.
 
Please email Mrs Flook with any questions or queries and don't forget to share your learning on Seesaw or via email staff@hillcrest.bristol.sch.uk

Reading
This week we will be looking at the book, 'There's a Lion in my Cornflakes' by Michelle Robinson. There will be lots of fun comprehension tasks throughout the week based on the book. Today your challenge is to predict what would you think would happen after the end of the story. Check out the videos above to help you with this.
The 'Dougal Reading Challenge' continues this week. Remember get 10 book tokens in to hillcrestphonics@yahoo.com by Friday and you will get a certificate and be entered in the draw for a personalised message from Dougal the Dog. This week Alexa in 1MH and Felix in 1JF received a message from Dougal. Keep reading folks. Remember the Bookbarn is open.
 
Spellings
Another week, another spelling test. Practise the below spellings over the week in preparation for our test on Friday. You will receive a resilience or excellence certificate for all your hard work.
 
Phonics
We will continue to practise over the week. Today visit phonicsplay.co.uk and have fun with their games. Remember we do phonics in school every day so we recommend you spend 15 minutes a every day practising your sounds and blending.

Maths – 11th May  

Good Morning Year ones. This week will be a big maths focus. On Wednesday we will be having our weekly Zoom meeting and this week, it will be all about maths. We will run a short quiz including a scavenger hunt. Don’t worry though, it’s just about having fun – your scores don’t matter!  

 

Wednesday is also National Numeracy Day and your daily tasks will all be maths focused. As mathematicians we will be making links, recognising pattern and having fun!  

 

Mrs Howells’ favourite Maths formula is: Maths = Confidence! If you can be confident, that is the key to success! The more you use mathematics, the easier it becomes. As the saying goes, if you don’t use it, you will loose it!  

 

Today I would like you to watch the white rose video add by making ten then head over to BBC bitesize where you will find an activity and games to help develop your understanding of this concept 

 

would also be keen to find out how you perceive Maths as a subject in your house. Do you consider yourselves mathematically competent? Was it a subject you struggled with when you were a child? How confident were you learning Maths at school? The charity web-site has a whole host of information on the website which you can use and maybe useful. 

 

Best Wishes to you all  

Mrs Howells.   

Enquiry Monday 11th may
Happy Monday you wonderful lot! I hope you all had a great weekend enjoying the sunshine and  having adventures big and small? We've been lucky to have had all sorts of weather which has really helped our beans and peas grow. Take a look at the photos I've shared of my beans and peas. I'm positive my beans are going to grow up to the clouds. I wonder what's up there?
 
Today's Enquiry lesson is crammed full of interesting questions for you to answer and activities to complete. Let the pdf guide you through the lesson and feel free to send me any queries, questions or amazing discoveries to staff@hillcrest.bristol.sch.uk
