Congratulations you’ve nearly reached the end of your first week at home!

We would love you to create a poster of all the numbers 1-20 today in numerals and in words. It would be great if we could all spell all the numbers to 20 correctly! Extend beyond twenty if you would like a challenge.

Don’t forget to email your creations or post on seesaw. Thanks again! 

PS It was lovely to see some of you doing Jaime and Meg's dance earlier! Mrs Howells joined in when her daughter let her!

Well done Year one. We are going to consolidate numbers bonds to 20 for one more day and use this to solve subtraction questions to 20. We’ve attached some worksheets to complete. The first set are for those of you who need to keep practising those number bonds. The second set is for those children who would like to extend their understanding further and use what they know to solve simple subtraction questions. Perhaps time yourself completing the first set and see if you can beat your score with the second set. You could even draw a number line to 20 to help.

Good luck and many thanks!

P.S. Mrs Howells is also doing Jo Wicks workout every morning! It's exhausting but great fun and sets her up for the day!

Keep smiling everyone! 



Thursday 26th March
Happy sunshiny day to you Year 1!
We are going to be artists today, so tune into your imagination and be as creative as a crazy camouflaged caterpillar. Miss Bonner has suggested the following two activities to get you started but if you don't fancy either of these ideas come up with your own. Lots of children and families in Totterdown are creating rainbow pictures to put in their windows. The idea is to make us smile and show that we are all in this together and we will get through this together. Have fun!
Activity 1

Make your own sketchbook. Collect different types of paper and join using a hole punch and wool. See video here https://www.accessart.org.uk/hole-punch-sketchbooks-2/

Activity 2 (Also from AccessArt)

Drawing as a tool for seeing, and being in the here and now.

Collect some natural objects – shells, stones, sticks, leaves, feathers etc or household objects – cup, shoe, sock, fork, book… anything you like really.

Draw the objects, one at a time, using some, or all, of the following techniques:

Look and draw your subject (your chosen object) in the time it takes to inhale and exhale one breath. Draw your subject with your non-dominant hand. Hold your pencil or pen lightly from the top (with all five fingers) and dangle it over the paper drawing your subject. Draw your chosen subject in a continuous line without taking your pencil or pen off of the paper. Draw your chosen subject in five lines. Draw your chosen subject in three lines. Look at your subject and draw it without looking at the paper. No cheating! Draw your subject in dots and specks. Draw the outline of your subject in one, strong gesture. Draw your subject without blinking. Draw your subject’s shadow. Draw your subject from inside out with no outline or contour at all (use only shading).



Thursday 26th March
If you feel like expressing yourself through song Mrs Price suggests teaching your siblings or family some of the warm up games, or you could challenge yourself and make up your own. games or songs.
The Telephone Game
The Name Game
Boom Chicka Boom
Pass the Sound
Silent Zoo
You could use the rhyming skills you've learnt in Handa's Surprise (YouTube) to experiment with other books. Why not choose your favourite book and see if you can create your own rhythms.
Listen to a piece of instrumental music and draw how it makes you feel. Use just one or two colours. Try not to draw 'things' but create your own mood symbols and shapes.
Enjoy being creative!
Enquiry: Senses

Morning you lovely lot!
Continuing with our 'What Am I?' enquiry we are going to take a closer look at our senses. What are they? How many senses do we use? What parts of our body do we use for each sense? So many questions. We are challenging you all to find the answers as part of today's task. Don't forget to share your learning on Seesaw. Have fun!

We have been learning about weights and mass this week in class. Be a marvellous mathematician at home by using yourself as a human weighing scales to predict the mass of three or more different objects and order them from lightest to heaviest.

Try to use the vocabulary of heavier than, lighter than, balanced, lightest, heaviest and equal to when explaining your findings.

Your challenge this week is to use your understanding of weight and mass to bake a cake. Ready! Steady! Bake!



We have attached all the Phase 3 and 5 sounds which we have been learning, use them to write real and alien words. Then use dots and dashes to help you read them. Your challenge is to then put them in a sentence. For example, for the sound /ee/ you could write leek or zeek.



Message from Mrs Flook:
What an interesting week that turned out to be. Well done for having a go, sticking at it and continuing on your learning journeys.
Here's a little something to make you smile at the end of our first week of home learning. Feel free to share your thoughts on my attempts to get active.
Now it's time to switch off your brains, curl up on the sofa, read a book, watch some TV or just chill with your family.
See you all back here on Monday morning. Over and out.
