Yr 1 Daily Tasks Week beginning 30 March

Home learning for Friday, April 3rd
Below you will find all you need for today's home learning
It's show time!
Friday April 3rd 2020
We have been so impressed and amazed by the resilience, innovation, partnership and excellence you have all demonstrated that we wanted to end our second week of home learning by celebrating our creativity. But what to do? That's the question. Well, I was more than impressed by Mr McIntyre's double act with Dougal, and inspired by the Hillcrest's Got Talent entries so far that I thought to myself, 'this is the perfect time for a puppet show Mrs Flook.' The video is me celebrating my creativity, I hope it makes you smile.
Your challenge, if you choose to accept it is to create your very own puppet show using any resources you can find at home. My puppets were made from screwed up tin foil, rolled and bashed into shape then covered with masking tape. I used pipe cleaners for arms and legs, bits of fabric and wool for the hair and clothes. I adapted the story from an old poem I fell in love with years ago. 
You can draw pictures of your chosen characters, cut them out and stick them onto spoons. You can raid the recycling box and make junk puppets. You can even use your dolls and teddies for the characters. Write your story, make the puppets and perform your show.
Please ask parents/carers before using family heirlooms as puppets!!!
Explore your curious, crazy, wonderful imaginations and make us all smile.

You've reached two weeks of home learning - congratulations!

Now you have spent the week learning about measures, we’d like you to have a go at the attached quiz. You can either print the quiz or complete the questions orally. The quiz is scored out of 18 (questions 3 and 14 are worth three marks each). We’d love to know your scores which you can post on seesaw or email Mrs Howells/Mrs Flook. Good luck and remember to ask an adult to read the questions! If you find any questions tricky, use these as your focus work today. Thanks again for all your hard work!

Enquiry: How does my city change in Spring?
Thursday April 2nd 2020
We were very impressed with all your beautiful pictures, describing some of the seasonal changes you might see in Spring. Continuing on this theme you are going to be meteorologists today and write your own weather report.
We have attached a pdf to guide you through the lesson, but as always, if in doubt give Mrs Flook a shout (preferably via email). Have fun!

Today we would like you to deepen your understanding of mass and weight. We started learning about this just before we finished school 

Start by reminding yourself how to be a human scale. Hold two items (more if you can!) and tell someone in your house which one is lighter or heavier than the other than the other. Are larger items always the heaviest?  

If you have scales at home, explore weighing items. You could even do some baking – parents' permission of course! Explore how weight is measured (in grams and kilograms). Have a look at food tins, boxes or bags and investigate how weight is labelled on the packaging. Take photos or make a poster of your findingsWe would love to see your creative work on Seesaw.  

Challenge: Follow the link below (click on week one lessons 1-3) with a video and worksheet exploring weight and mass. Good luck!  

SPESCH: Happy, healthy me!
Wednesday April 1st 2020
Last week Jigsaw Jack showed us the different ways we can keep ourselves clean and healthy. Today we are looking at the importance of staying safe, health and happy.
Use the attached pdfs to guide you through the lesson. Then complete the worksheet to explain why our bodies are so amazing. Mrs Flook is on hand (via email) to answer any questions or queries you may have. Share your learning on Seesaw (if you want) to inspire your class mates to have a go.

Today you are going to learn about capacity. This word means the amount or volume of liquid within a container.
Firstly, have a go at this practical activity:
Take a small cup and a large bucket. Guess how many cups of water it will take to fill your bucket? Then have fun filling your bucket! Warning: don't forget to check with your parents first as this will get messy! Probably best to do this outside! I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your activities on seesaw! 
If you then want to do deepen your learning, follow the link below which includes a video (titled 'Flashback 4') and activity sheets ('titled Get the activity') to complete or discuss with your parents. Click on week 2 which will give you the capacity work.
Challenge: have a look at bottles or cans of liquid in your house. How is volume measured? What units of measure are used?

As we are now in Spring we are going to look at seasonal changes. Take a walk in your garden and tell us what you see. We have attached a pdf with a link to a youtube video to help you understand what happens during this season and why. We're looking forward to seeing your beautiful spring drawings on Seesaw. Enjoy!

Hi Year ones! Welcome to your second week of mathematical home learning.
This week we will be focusing on measuring - prepare to have fun! 
Today I would like you to build a Lego tower! Yes, that's right, you're going to learn maths using Lego! I would like you build the tallest Lego tower you can. Maybe other people in your house could build one too. If you don't have Lego, use building blocks, books, or any other objects which are equal in size. 
Once you've finished, estimate (guess) how many centimetres tall your tower is and then, using a ruler, measure your tower. Who can build the largest tower? Remember our golden rule when measuring: 'be a hero and start at zero!' This means you always start at zero centimetres on your ruler. Challenge: Draw your tower and label the measurements. 
I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations on seesaw. I may even post the best ones on the website!
Good luck and happy building!
