Yr 1 Daily Tasks Week beginning 27 April

Home learning for Friday, May 1st
Below you will find all you need for today's home learning
It's Friday! 
Today you are going to do something a little different. It's the end of the week and you've worked so hard in Maths - your Seesaw posts have been fantastic! I would like you to have a go at this mindfulness art activity. Draw around your hand and use colour and pattern to fill the space. Then using a black pen, fill the rest of the page with more patterns. My children have both had a go. Have a look at their examples below. Put on an audible book or some calm music, get out your favourite colours and have some fun. See you all next week. Have a fantastic weekend everybody.

Mr McIntyre is wearing his spelling hat, it can only mean one thing... It is time for our spelling test. Give it your very best, folks.
 
There is also some phonics dancing in today’s video. Post your silliest dance on Seesaw. The silliest dance will be recreated in Monday’s video.
 
Send your completed spelling tests and book tokens to hillcrestphonics@yahoo.com. The draw for the personalised video message from Dougal the Dog will take place over the weekend.
 
Have a wonderful weekend, Year 1s
 
RE  - What is Shabbat? Friday May 1st
It's certainly been a busy week Year 1 and we're really impressed with all the learning that's taking place. What superstars you all are!
 
Today's RE lesson is all about Shabbat. What is Shabbat? Who celebrates Shabbat? Why and when do they celebrate Shabbat? Follow the lesson in the attached pdf and you'll find out the answers to these questions. Watch the video of Charlie talking about what Shabbat means to him. Then, why not challenge yourself to draw and write about a special meal you share with your family.
 
Don't forget to share your learning on Seesaw or via email staff@hillcrest.bristol.sch.uk
Home learning for Thursday, April 30th
Below you will find all you need for today's home learning
Maths - Thursday 30th April 
Good morning Year Ones! 
Today we are taking a break from White Rose and playing  a game! I would like you to explore Karate Cats (click on the link below). Choose the topic of your choice and then select the level (bronze, silver or gold) which best suits you. I wonder who will be the best and get to Black Belt. Good luck everyone! 
Once you have played the game for a while, I would like you to write a set of ten maths questions related to the topic you chose. Then give your questions to someone in your house for them to solve. You can keep them as simple or as tricky as you like but remember, they must make sense and you must have the answers written down on a separate piece of paper so you can mark their work! In other words, today you will be the teacher! 
Happy teaching!

Enquiry Thursday 30.04.20
Morning you lovely lot! It's been wonderful to see so many beans and peas in bags, strategically positioned in a sunny spot on your windows. I'm very excited to see what starts germinating first. Sadly the sun didn't show her smiling face yesterday but fingers crossed she makes an appearance today.
 
Today's lesson is all about seed dispersal, but what does that actually mean??? Well, the pdf will explain everything, so we're looking forward to you all sharing what you've learnt and explaining what it means on Seesaw or via email, staff@hillcrest.bristol.sch.uk
 
Don't forget to keep and an eye on those beans and peas.
Story Time with Mr McIntyre and Mrs Flook
It's a very special story time today because we have found some extraordinary books we would like to share with you all.
 
Last term Year 1 used their imaginations and creative skills to design and make pop-up books based on our enquiry question, 'How do we move around?'. The children embraced their roles as designers, authors and illustrators and should be incredibly proud of their work. They each designed and made one page, which we then turned into six spectacular books. The children showed incredible focus and demonstrated all four of the Hillcrest RIPE elements during this project, which should be celebrated.
 
Mrs flook will read the three books produced by Kestrel Class and Mr McIntyre will read the three books by Eagle Class. Please go to Seesaw to watch Mr McIntyre's videos.
 
Don't forget to let us know your thoughts and feelings about the stories.
 
We hope you enjoy them as much as we have.

Maths - Wednesday 29th April 
Good morning everyone. It was lovely to see so many of you on Zoom yesterday. I really enjoyed the scavenger hunt. It was lovely watching you all rushing back to the screen to present your objects! 
 
Please continue with the White Rose Learning today. Today's work focuses on problem solving. They are quite tricky but just have a go. I have also attached some further word problems on fractions (finding a half and a quarter) if you want some more practice. There are four pages which are progressively more challenging. Choose the page you feel most confident with. Remember you don't need to print the worksheet out. You can just write the answers down in your home learning book or on paper. 
 
Thanks everyone

Maths - Tuesday 28th April. 
Good morning year ones. I was so impressed to see so many of you working hard in Maths on Seesaw yesterday! Well done! 
Please continue with lesson two on the White Rose Home Learning link below. Today you are introduced to quarters.

Thanks again Mrs Howells 
Enquiry: 'Can I grow a bean in a bag?' Tuesday 28th April
Morning Year 1! It's time to open your eyes, have a stretch and wake up those inquisitive scientist's brains of yours. Today we are going to conduct an experiment using beans and peas. Wow! I hear you gasp with excitement and anticipation, and so you should. What could be more spectaular than this? We are just as excited as you are so we've decided to join in and see if our fingers are green enough to make seeds grow. We are really looking forward to sharing our observations with you on Seesaw and vice versa.
 
Everything you need to know is included in the attached pdf, so let it guide you through the lesson and see where it takes you. If you have any queries, questions or incredible discoveries please let Mrs Flook know via the usual email address, staff@hillcrest.bristol.sch.uk
Home learning for Monday, April 27th
Below you will find all you need for today's home learning
ENQUIRY
As we are focusing on 'What grows in my city?' I thought it would be a great opportunity to see what WE can actually grow. Therefore we will all (teaching staff included) be attempting to grow beans. peas and seeds this term. It's not a competition, but more of an experiment to see if different growing environments and conditions affect how things grow.
 
We have provided resources for all children to be able to access the enquiry tasks.
Resources  include:
1 x bean/peas in a bag
1 x instruction sheet
1 x Diary worksheets (2 pgs)
1 x small bag of cress seeds
 
Parents/carers will need to pick these resources up from school (today or tomorrow). It might make more sense for one family to pick up resources for several children who live on the same street.  There are some cardboard pots and soil for those children who may not have access to a garden. Please only take these if you need them. I will post the the pfd tomorrow which will guide you through the lesson.
 
Ready, steady, grow......

Maths - Monday 27th April
Good Morning Year Ones! I hope you managed to enjoy a fabulous sunny weekend. I managed to eat every single meal in the garden which was just wonderful. 
For Maths today, I would like you to continue to working on halving using the White Rose link below. I have also attached a fun introductory video on the BBC website to help. 
Looking forward to seeing you on Zoom tomorrow. 
Keep smiling! 
Mrs Howells 
SPESCH Monday 27th April 2020
Morning you lovely lot! The sun is shining, the birds are tweeting and it's time t get back on our learning journey.
 
Today's SPESCH lesson is all about touch. We'll be looking at when it's acceptable to touch someone and also when it's unacceptable.
 
The attached pdf will guide you through the lesson and explain that our bodies belong to us so it is important that we know how to speak up about a touch we don't like. This is called an unacceptable touch. Touch is an important part of relationships but any physical contact with others should respect their personal space and their bodies. The challenge involves drawing around your hands, so good luck with that.
 
Please email me with any questions or queries and I'll do my best to answer them. Don't forget to share share your learning on Seesaw or via email staff@hillcrest.bristol.sch.uk
 
Have fun! Mrs Flook
