Home Learning Tasks

Week beginning 6th July

Hello again year 1.  First of all we wanted to say how lovely it was to see all your smiling faces last week in school. It was a real treat after being away for so long. We hope you all enjoyed your day back in school, (especially having your own table and personal folder and crayons!!) and we can't wait to see you again this coming week, with lots of fun activities for you to do. Let's hope the sun shines too so we can get outside as well! Remember to bring a drink with you as well as your lunch and a snack. If it's hot, bring a hat too.

Circus Poems

I know I love the sights, sounds and tastes of the circus. The bright lights and costumes, the salty popcorn or the sugary candy floss and of course the fun music that makes you want to get up and dance. So, this week your activity it to use your senses to make a short poem. Look at the instructions below and read the example to help you think of your own ideas. Think about what you can see, what can you hear, taste and how would you feel when you are there ?

Ask a grown up to go through the power point. Can you read some of the poems yourself, remember to sound out the words, use the rhyme words to help you. I hope they give you some ideas. 

Write your poem out neatly in your book, or print off the sheet. If you want to draw a border around your poem to decorate it that would be great !

Add some describing words to make your poem interesting.

I can hear loud, popping balloons in the crowd

 I can taste sticky toffee apples, making me lick my lips

 I could feel the fun of the circus all around me.     

Use these words to help you.

candy floss     popcorn     ice cream   hot dogs     toffee apples    clown     circus tent   

trapeze      jugglers     acrobats    music    people  

P.E.

 

CIRCUS YOGA POSES FOR KIDS

To bring the circus alive at home, try these five circus-inspired yoga poses for children. Then, perhaps you can invent new yoga poses mimicking circus performers that you have seen yourselves, read about in circus books, or made up in your imagination. These five yoga postures are sequenced to invite flow from one pose to the next:

 

TREE POSE - PRETEND TO BE BALANCING ON A TIGHT ROPE.

Stand on one leg. Bend the knee of the leg you are not standing on, place the sole of your foot on the opposite inner thigh or calf, and balance. Pretend to be balancing on a tight rope. Switch sides and repeat the steps.

Picture 1

HORSE STANCE- TO BE LIFTING HEAVY WEIGHTS.

Stand with your legs apart, feet facing slightly outward. Bend your knees and stand firm as if you’re lifting a heavy weight above your head. Or you could pretend that you have another circus performer standing on your shoulders.

Picture 1

LUNGE -PRETEND TO BE DOING THE SPLITS.

From Horse Stance, come to a standing position. Then, on an exhale, do a swan dive to a Standing Forward Bend. Place your palms flat on the ground. Inhale, and on an exhale, step your right foot back into a lunge, bending deeply into your front left knee while ensuring that your knee is aligned above your ankle. Keep a flat back and open your chest. Pretend to be warming up to do the splits. You could certainly do the splits if that’s available to you. Switch sides and repeat the steps.

Picture 1

DOWNWARD-FACING DOG POSE -PRETEND TO BE GETTING READY TO DO A HANDSTAND.

Step back to your hands and feet in an upside-down V shape, with your buttocks up in the air. Check that your palms are flat on the ground and that your fingers are spread out evenly. Stay here or take baby steps forward to bring your torso right over your arms in preparation for a handstand. Again, you could do a full handstand if you’re able.

Picture 1

LOCUST POSE -PRETEND TO BE A TRAPEZE REACHING FOR THE NEXT SWING.

Come to lie on your tummy, lift your chest and shoulders, and look up. Pretend you are a trapeze performer flying from one swing to another. You could also extend up into a full Bow Pose.

Picture 1

Can you invent other circus yoga poses? Maybe you could juggle (Mountain Pose variation) or ride on a unicycle (Knees to chest pose with bicycle legs) or do a backbend (Wheel Pose)? We saw all of these amazing stunts:

  • juggling
  • walking on tight ropes
  • handstands
  • lifting heavy weights
  • riding unicycles
  • balancing on stilts
  • wiggling in hula hoops

 

ICT.

Dragon Drop.

Dragon Drop is a fun way for kids of all ages to practice their computer mouse skills. In this mouse game for kids, there are 20 stages that increase in difficulty. Click, double click, drag and drop your way to success.

Phonics

There are lots of super phonic games for you to try out for free. Remember it’s important for you to keep practising your phonics sounds to help you spell and read.  

Remember if your child is confident on a phase go to the next phase and remember to revisit previous learning.

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

Try the Reading Robot for key words, numbers, days of the week. You can also add your own tricky words.  

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/reading-robot

 

Grab a Giggling Grapheme is a good game for practising their sounds

Numeracy

After all your hard work in school last week with your number bonds we are going to look at Doubles this week. Watch this video first to remind yourselves of your doubles.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9YQ4phTB0E

Click on the Bitesize link below and follow the instructions for the activity. There are two tasks to do, one involving a twinkl sheet.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zqps2v4

 

If you are feeling super speedy this week there is another activity you could have a look at. It is all about grouping equally.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zm4dg7h

 

Learn about grouping equally in twos, fours, fives and tens.  This lesson includes:

  • one video
  • one interactive activity
  • one worksheet
  • Begin by watching the video.
  • It shows how we can put objects into equal groups of twos, fours, fives and tens, focusing on the term 'into groups of' (for example 20 'into groups' of 10).
  • After looking at the importance of making equal groups rather than unequal groups, the video features opportunities to handle real objects and answer questions on grouping equally.

Today's lesson follows on from division with sharing to look at division with grouping. 

Instead of working out how many items are in each group, you are now looking at finding how many groups there are when a known quantity is divided into equal groups.

This is a subtle but important difference to understand when you’re sharing a quantity.

By the end of the lesson, we should understand:

  • what grouping equally and not grouping equally means.
  • that knowing one grouping fact can help you work out the related one. For example, 20 into groups of 2 is 10, can help you work out 20 into groups of 10 is 2.

There are two activities to complete. One from our friends at Twinkl and the other from Times Tables Rock Stars. Have fun with it!

Week beginning 29th June.

Even though some of you will be spending a day at school this coming week with some of your friends, we would like you to continue with your home learning on those days when you are not at school.

Now in your pink books or on paper write about a day in the circus. Remember to use all your senses. What did you see, hear, taste, feel ? Who did you go with ? Did you enjoy it ? What did the clown do ?

Add some describing words to make your writing interesting.

sticky toffee apples       colourful clowns      enormous circus tent

 

Use these words to help you.

candy floss     pop corn     ice cream   hot dogs     toffee apples    clown     circus tent   

trapeze      jugglers     acrobats    music 

If you want you can draw a picture of the circus, the clowns or the tent and colour it in.

Numeracy

Firstly, we will be checking out all our number bonds to either 10 or 20, depending how confident you feel. Don’t forget with your number bonds to write down the “switchers”.  Have a look at the bite size video https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwv39j6/articles/zx3982p       to remind you and then have a go at writing them out in order. eg.

1 + 9 = 10   so    9 + 1 = 10

2 + 8 = 10   so   8 + 2 = 10   and so on...

 

Last week we were counting in 2s and we are going to do some more work based on this so that we feel really confident about it. Click on the link below and have a go.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zqbg87h/articles/zc7ygdm

 

Could you record yourself chanting the 2 times table? Maybe outside somewhere? And put it up on Flipgrid? Or send us an email.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yf3xgE8wMc

Practise singing along to this song to help you remember your 2 times table, see how fast you can go! Can you write out your 2 x table in your pink book or on any paper that you have?  Perhaps you could find a pair (2 of) of something and take photos of them eg. A pair of shoes, a pair of books, a pair of bananas etc and lay them out in their pairs so that it is a visual picture of your 2 times table. That would be fabulous! Good luck!

Welsh/Cymraeg

 

We have been doing a lot of counting and work with numbers recently, so we will be reminding ourselves how to count in Welsh. Do you remember all these numbers? And in the right order? Watch this video and count along...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zxr9pbk/articles/zxy8pbk         

 

Perhaps you could draw a picture of different things to match each written number

eg. un (1) dog, dau (2) books, tri (3) bananas and so on.

 

And what about the days of the week? Watch Gareth and his parrot and see what he does every day. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpkwy4j/articles/ztbjfcw  

What do you do on different days of the week? Before we had lock down what did you do on a Monday? (apart from going to school)  Did you go swimming? Or to football practice? Or dance and drama lessons? And what about the rest of the week?

So you might set it out a bit like this...with a picture of the activity you do on each day.

Bore da pawb ! How are you all ?

As we approach our return to school, I thought it would be a super idea to take some time and think about what you have been doing over the weeks at home. So, this week’s writing activity is to tell us about what you have enjoyed, what you have learnt and what has made you smile.

Maybe you enjoyed learning about bugs and drawing them or going on a bug hunt ? Perhaps you are enjoying our Carnival theme getting  dressed up and dancing around and being amazed at the beautiful parades around the world ? Or have you learnt a new skill? I know lots of you have from your e mails and tweets. I have seen brick laying, gardening, learning about countries, helping out with chores at home, climbing trees and riding bikes, the list is so long you certainly have been busy little Birchgrove bees !

So year 1 in your pink books or on a piece of paper we would like you to write about anything you have done.

The title of your work is My Home School Fun ! To help you with your writing use these sentence starters or think of your own. When you have finished your writing draw some pictures to show what you have been doing. Remember to practice reading your work back to check it makes sense.

When I have been at home, I have learnt

I know how to

I have really enjoyed …………….. because

My favourite part of being at home was 

 

PE

It’s one of your favourite activities ! So lets get moving and grooving year 1. I know you have been dressing up while you dance so remember make it bright , colourful and silly !

Numeracy

Bore da plant, we are looking at counting in 2s this week. This may sound very simple for some of you, but it is a really useful activity so please take a look and have a go!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z693rj6

There is a video to watch and two activities to do. Remember, instead of counting up in twos, you can multiply by 2, which is a more efficient way of doing the same sum.

Counting in twos gives you the two times table.

So, 7 pairs of shoes is the same as 7 x 2 = 14 shoes.                                 

Remember, a pair always has 2 things. 

A pair of gloves is 2 gloves.

 

A pair of bananas is 2 bananas.

 

If you have whizzed through this (well done!) you could also have a look at this page too.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkvhscw

This time we are counting in 5s. Again, there is one video to watch and 3 activities to do. Enjoy the video which is also a bit of a morning work-out!

A top tip to remember is that when you are counting in 5s, it helps you to multiply by 5.

 

So, 5 flowers  

with 5 petals each is the same as saying 5 x 5 = 25

Counting in 5s gives you the 5 times table.

Good luck with all of your counting and multiplying this week!

 

Challenge

If you love football, then this activity might be just the job for you!                           

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmdr92p

Describing position and direction on the football pitch

                 

Watch Watford FC mascot, Harry the Hornet, as he explains position and directions on his race through the stadium. Try and say the words out loud as you see Harry run around the stadium!!

 

Then watch the slideshow and have a go at following the instructions. There is a quiz to follow. Try this again at the end of the lesson to see if you have improved. There is lots here for you to have a go at. Remember, you don’t have to do it all. Pick and choose the bits that interest you and fit in what you can. Pob lwc!

 

 

Cymraeg/Welsh

Bore da plant. Mae hi’n bwrw glaw iawn iawn heddiw! It’s been raining cats and dogs!!

Have a look at the poem below and try reading it out loud!! You'll see that it rhymes.

Mae’n bwrw glaw trwm  

  Ar ben tŷ Twm;

  Mae’n bwrw ceser

  Ar ben tŷ Esther;

  Mae’n bwrw eira

  Ar ben tŷ Meira

Perhaps you could record yourself saying it out loud. Pop it on flipgrid or in an email. We would love to see it!

 

I’m sure many of you have been playing in the park recently (hopefully in the sunshine!) and there is a great PowerPoint called Chwarae yn y parc that you can look at.  Perhaps you could draw a picture of yourself playing your favourite game or activity in the park and label it by copying one of the sentences from the PowerPoint.

eg.”Dwi’n hoffi mynd ar y beic yn y parc” and draw a picture of yourself on your bike.

Bore da pawb, we hope that you are all well and having lots of fun learning. This week's book is called 'The Tooth Fairy'. We chose this book because lots of you have probably had visits from the Tooth Fairy over the last few weeks. We can't wait to see your new lovely smiles! If you don't have a copy of the book at home, you can access it by copying the link below:

Once you have read the story we would like you to think about a 'tooth friendly' lunch. In your pink book we'd like you to write down which foods you think would keep your teeth healthy and strong. You could either write them as a list, or you could explain why you think they are good for your teeth. If you wanted you could even draw a picture of your lovely bright smile!

 

Good luck Year 1, stay smiling and we'll see you soon.

PLEASE READ:

 

How has lock down been for you and your family? 

 

We have all had very different experiences during this time of lock down. Some of us have enjoyed being around our families and have even learnt some new skills. Some of us have been really missing our friends and relatives and have had times where we have felt a bit sad. In order to make your transition back to school as smooth as possible we would like you to tell us all about it. Please complete these questionnaires with your families and send them back to your teachers. We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back to school and this information will help us to get the right activities ready for you.

If you have any concerns or queries please feel free to email Mrs Jones on ljones@birchgroveprm.cardiff.sch.uk

Carnival Floats

Watch the video clip and look at the floats in the power point.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Py0Tl2PvlJo

As you can see from watching the video and powerpoint, carnivals always have beautiful floats. A float is a platform that is decorated for display in a carnival or parade. A float may be mounted on a vehicle such as a truck, or it may be free-standing and pulled by a vehicle such as a car or truck. They are very colourful and have a theme. This means they are about one thing eg a circus theme, a unicorn theme, an animal theme. This week we would like you to think really hard and design your own float. Think about a theme, something you enjoy or like and then let your imagination go wild. What would be on your float, will you have something fun like clowns or acrobats? Maybe jugglers and dancers ? Remember to label your float so we can see what is on it and colour it in neatly. Use a piece of paper or your pink books.

Challenge

Write sentences to describe your float and explain what it is like. Use interesting words and add lots of adjectives, describing words.

OR

Make your float using things about the house. You could cut out a piece of cardboard for the base. Then draw and cut out what is on your float and stick them to the base. Decorate it and make it colourful

Numeracy – volume and capacity

 

Bore da a croeso i wythnos 3. This week’s maths activities are all about comparing volume and capacity. You will need to know the following words: full, nearly full, empty and nearly empty. There are two slideshows to watch and two activities to complete. The first slideshow is all about capacity, which is the total amount of liquid a container may hold. Look through the 1st slideshow for help.

 

Volume can change, because it is the measure of the amount of liquid in the container. This may change if you pour some of the liquid away, or if you add more liquid to the container. The 2nd slideshow will tell you more.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmytpg8

 

For the first activity you will need to find some suitable containers from around your house. A bit like a treasure hunt! Good luck and happy measuring! The second activity is a printed sheet – you will need to answer some questions about capacity for this one. Good luck! 

 

Challenge 1

Sally has 20 beads. 

She uses some beads to make these necklaces.

How many beads does she have left?

 

Challenge 2

George is thinking of a two digit number.

What number is George thinking of?

Welsh/Cymraeg

We are still looking at Y Tywydd this week. I hope you enjoyed reading the Tedi Twt story with a grownup. I saw some lovely examples of welsh writing last week, and some of you had a go at sorting out the winter and summer clothes. Bendigedig! This week I’d like you to look at another story involving clothes ( y dillad). It’s called “I Mewn” which loosely translates as  “In you go” (click here for the link) Enjoy reading it together.

Perhaps you would like to have a go at making your very own season spinner wheel? Click here for the template. You will need some card and a split pin. Stick the printed sheet onto some card (this will make it nice and rigid) then get a grown up to create a small hole in the centre.

(I usually use a sharp pencil pushed through into a lump of blu tac or plasticine). You will need to cut out the arrow and fix it to the wheel with the split pin. Or you could use the welsh weather words sheet below to create your own daily weather wheel. Then every day you can ask “Sut mae’r tywydd heddiw?” and spin the arrow to the appropriate weather. There is also a picture of a weather chart which you could print off, or why not have a go at making your own??

Whatever the weather this coming week, enjoy yourselves and keep safe.

Reading Challenge

 

Bore da pawb! We hope that you have had a lovely weekend. This week's book is a fabulous story that teaches us about perseverance and that it pays to keep on trying. The book is called 'Sticks Masterpiece - Colouring Book'. If you don't have a copy at home it can be accessed by copying the link below:

 

https://freekidsbooks.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Sticks_Masterpiece_Colouring-FKB.pdf

 

In your pink book, we would like you to write a short report about a time when you found something tricky, but you didn't give up. It could be when you were learning to ride your bike, learning your number bonds or times table or even learning to do cartwheels. We bet that you are an expert now!

 

Good luck with your reading challenge Year 1 and we will see you very soon!

This week's art and craft activity is making a clown hat and nose!

Let's make a clown hat and nose that we can wear and use for some circus imaginative play!

This activity is so much fun and all the supplies you need can come from scrap paper or recycling materials from home ... You can also search around the house for some pompoms, ribbons or stickers and also remember the sillier your clown hat is, the more fun it will be!

 

Follow the link bellow to find the instructions on how to make your clown hat and nose:

 

http://momstown.ca/how-make-clown-hat-and-clown-nose/

 

 Finally put your clown hat and nose on and start clowning around!

Bore da pawb ! We hope you enjoyed the first week of Carnival? Are you ready for some more fun ? Let’s get started and have some fun, maybe the sun will come out!

 

Literacy

True or False. Scan the QR codes and watch the videos and listen to the music. Have a dance about while you are doing it. If you can’t scan the codes watch the videos from last week. Now read the sentences carefully, remember to sound out words or read ahead to help with difficult words. Some of these sentences are true, they are about carnivals and some sentences are false, they are not about carnivals.

In your pink books or on a piece of paper copy out the sentences into 2 groups, True and False. You could write the True sentences at the top of the page and the false sentences at the bottom half of the page.

Challenge

Can you think of a True and False sentence of your own? Write it in your book.

Scan and listen. Scan and watch

    Scan and listen.                               Scan and watch  1
    Scan and listen.                               Scan and watch  2

Phonics.

It’s phonics time. This week the clowns have jumbled up the carnival words. You must use your spelling skills to spell out the words correctly. We know you can do it.

Put each word into a silly sentence, the sillier the better. Practice reading them out loud, can you make someone in your family laugh ?

 

Reading Challenge

 

Bore da pawb! We hope that you have all had a lovely week. 

 

This week's book is called 'Up in the Air'. The book tells us about things that can fly, not just insects and birds! We hope that you enjoy reading it. 

 

In your pink books we would like you to write a short story entitled "If I could fly". Tell us where you would go and why. What kind of things would you see? What do you think it would feel like? 

 

Don't worry if you don't have the book at home. It can be accessed by copying the link below:

Bore da a croeso i wythnos 2.

I hope you enjoyed completing your weather diaries last week and noticed the change from sunshine to rain mid-week? That was a shock, but great for our gardens. This week I would like you to read the Tedi Twt book (link) and read it together with a grown up if possible. Practise saying the phrases out loud. I’d love it if you could record yourself doing it and upload it to flipgrid or tweet it or email it to your teacher.

This week I’d like you to think about which clothes you wear, depending on the weather. Look at the Tywydd a Dillad PowerPoint (click on the link at the bottom) and try writing some of the sentences yourselves into your pink book, or on any paper that you have.  It might look like this…

Sut mae’r tywydd heddiw? What’s the weather like today?

Beth wyt ti’n gwisgo? What are you wearing?

Mae hi’n heulog. It is sunny.

Dwi’n gwisgo siorts coch a crys -t gwyn. I am wearing red shorts and a white t-shirt.

 

If you need reminding of your colours and some vocabulary for clothes, please see the links at the bottom.

 

As an extra challenge you could sort out the clothes on the sheet into summer (haf) and winter (gaeaf). See the link below. Don’t worry if you can’t print these out you could write the title at the top of the page into your book and draw the clothes yourself. Don’t forget to label them.

 

Pob lwc plant.

Numeracy

How did you get on with all that measuring last week? Hope you had lots of fun finding things to measure! We are continuing with the same theme this week so get ready to have a go. Click on the link below for this week’s activities.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z428wty

 

We are comparing mass: heavier and lighter.

 

How do we compare the mass of objects?

When comparing the mass of objects, we use these words:

  •     heavier and heaviest
  •     lighter and lightest

Top tip

Remember an object can be heavier than something else, even if it looks smaller.

The mass of two objects might be equal to each other, too.

 

Using symbols

We can use the symbols for more than and less than to compare the mass of objects.

  • > means more than
  • < means less than
  • = means equal to or the same

 

Comparing objects

Use the words heavier and lighter to compare the objects.

Here are some examples:

The pencil is lighter than the shoe.       

This is the same as writing

The pencil < the shoe.

There are two activities to do. One is practical where you will need to find things around the house to see which is heavier or lighter. the second activity is a reading sheet. Again, if you can’t print it out, just record your answers into your pink book.

Week beginning June 1st 2020

Carnival

Scan the code and get dancing on the year 1 Flipgrid.

Bore da pawb ! We hope you enjoyed half term and had lots of fresh air. It’s time for our new topic.  This is a colourful and fun topic. So, let’s get started.

We would like you to dress up in your brightest clothes. The brighter the better.

Then watch the videos and look at the photos of carnivals. Look carefully at what the people are doing- what can you see and hear? Dance around to the music and get into the carnival spirit its great fun!

Literacy

Now your first activity is to fill in the A-Z grid . Think of words that are linked to either carnivals or a circus. For example A- acrobat D- dance. How many can you think of. Don’t worry if you can find all the letters of the alphabet, but have fun. Remember if you can’t print off the sheet write the letters neatly in your pink book or on a piece of paper.

Challenge

Choose 5 of your words and write silly sentences. E.g The acrobat did  somersaults eating candy floss.

P.E.

Now its time to get moving. We have seen you dance, and we know you love to jig about. So put on your brightest clothes and click on the link below and try and learn the dance moves. Keep practising, get all the family involved and maybe go outside and have a dance in the sunshine.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arQxkdRYyE4

Now fill in the vowels to make the circus words. Remember if you cant print off the sheet, write the words in your book and maybe draw some pictures to go with them.

 

Reading Challenge

 

We have a lovely book for you this week, it is called 'Cryptic Carnival'. The story tells of fantastical creatures at a carnival and how they all get along, it is full of rhyming words too, see if you can spot them all!

 

In your pink book we would like you to create your own Cryptid Carnival creature. We would like you to use as many describing words as you can. Tell us what the creature feels like, sounds like, likes eating and doing. If you prefer you can draw your creature and label each part, for example "it has fluffy feathery wings like a newborn chick". 

 

Good luck and we cannot wait to see your fantastic creatures.

 

You can access the book by copying the link below:-

Numeracy

 

This week we are going to be looking at comparing length and height (taller and shorter).  There are two videos to watch, and a slideshow and 2 activities to complete. You will need to find different items to measure that are around your house eg. pencils, crayons, books, cereal boxes, plants, the list goes on and on…!!

Click on the link below for this week’s activities.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zf4vbdm

 

If you have whizzed through this, and you would like to try another lesson then this one follows on naturally and it involves measuring length and height using non-standard measures. That means items like hand spans, lolly sticks, matches and cubes. Don’t worry if you haven’t got these because you could use pasta shapes, teaspoons or anything else you have a lot of, that is a regular size and length. Watch Fin and Snoot measuring the length of their new cars using feet, centimetres and metres.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbwc92p

 

These activities are lots of fun, so we hope you enjoy measuring everything in and around your house and garden this week. Let us know how you get on in the usual way, by emailing your teacher, tweeting some photos or putting it up on Flipgrid. We look forward to hearing from you.

 

Challenge

If you are maths-hungry and fancy a challenge have a go at these! You might need a grownup to help you and that’s fine.

Jane is standing in a queue.

There are 5 people in front of her.

There are 2 people behind her.

How many people are in the queue?

 

Rosie has 80 pence.

Mo has 12 pence.

Rosie gives Mo 25 pence.   How much more money does Rosie have than Mo now?

 

Welsh/Cymraeg 

 

Bore da plant. Over the next few weeks, we are going to be looking at the weather in Welsh. What we would like you to do is to keep a diary every day of what the weather is like. So first of all, we need to be reminded of the days of the week. Have a look at the link at the bottom. Perhaps this could be printed out and stuck on the fridge to remind you!

 

Watch the following song to remind you of the days of the week and the order in which they come.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjSFKgGkSXs

 

Then in your pink book you can write down the day of the week and record each day’s weather. Remember to ask the question,

“Sut mae’r tywydd heddiw?” (What’s the weather like today?)

And we always answer “Mae hi’n……….heddiw” (It is ……… today)

 

Add a picture of the sunshine, or clouds and raindrops, or the wind, depending on what the weather is like!

 

Can you remember what all the different types of weather are in Welsh? Take a look at the PowerPoint below and practice saying mae hi’n heulog because that means it is sunny, and we have had lots of lovely sunshine these past few weeks. Another good one would be mae hi’n poeth (it is hot) and mae hi’n braf ( it is fine).

 

Y Tywydd powerpoint - or click on the link below

 

Have a lovely sunshine-filled week.    Mwynhau!       Pob lwc pawb!!

HALF TERM ACTIVITIES

 

Yay! It’s officially HALF TERM and time to take a much-needed break. You have been amazing, doing all the lovely work that has been set over the past weeks, and we hope you have enjoyed the wriggle and crawl topic. Us teachers have loved seeing all your photos of you enjoying yourselves. This week we would like you to have lots of fun at home with your family and below is a selection of fun-filled activities to do alone or together. Pick and choose the ones that you like, do as many or as few as you want, and it doesn’t matter on which days you do them! There is a mixture of art and craft, cookery, listening to stories, science, learn a new skill like riding your bike or hula-hooping, and much more. Have a lovely week. We hope the sun continues to shine and don’t forget to send us some of your photos on Twitter, by email or on Flipgrid. Look out for some new messages on Flipgrid from the year 1 team. Take care and stay safe, love from all the Year 1 team.

 

Are you feeling arty and crafty? Have a look at these. Fancy making a unicorn dreamcatcher? Click on the link.

                       Or how about painting some stones for the garden?

              

What about making your own bug out of salt dough? Here is a simple recipe for salt dough.

How do you fancy having a go at making an ice cream sundae?? Yum, yes please!  If you follow the recipe below be sure to send us some pics of you eating it!!

ice cream sundaes

 

The one on the left is called whizz-choc-pop super sundae. Sounds like it could have been invented by Willy Wonka at his chocolate factory!

                         

                                   

 

If your grown up is going shopping, perhaps you could ask them to buy some seeds for you to grow. Cress is really easy to grow, and you can use lots of different containers to grow them in such as yoghurt pots and even empty egg shells! There are lots of other seeds you could try too. Perhaps you could measure how tall they grow?

        

                  

Follow this link for instructions

Have you ever made a kaleidoscope? These are lots of fun and really easy to make and work even if the sun isn’t shining! What beautiful colours can you create?

                                                                 

Watch the following clip for instructions as to how to make it.

Sometimes during these strange times, we can feel a little bit odd and not quite like ourselves. This is perfectly normal. If you have a moment when you feel like this take a look at some of these well-being activities. They are really nice to do and just help to make us feel a little bit better. Click on the link labelled distraction activities at the bottom of the page.

 

I especially like the drive-in movie idea. You just need some popcorn and you’re ready to go! What would be your favourite film to watch at the moment? Mine would be Toy Story 4. Or choose your favourite song to dance along to. In our house we dance to the kitchen disco every Friday at 6.30pm with Sophie Ellis Bextor. All her children are joining in and she even has a disco ball in her kitchen! It’s great fun!!  

 

Another fab activity to keep you both busy and fit at the same time, is to create your very own assault course – in the garden! Once you’ve built it encourage the rest of your family to have a go. Perhaps you could time each other to see who does it the quickest! Click on the link below to give you some inspiring ideas. Can’t wait for the photos!

make your own kids obstacle course

 

                   

                                      

If you’re out and about – either in the garden, or on your daily walk around where you live, take a look to see if you can find any of these wonderful plants and flowers. It’s a bit like the bug hunt you did recently. You may even spot something in somebody else’s front garden, if you look carefully as you walk by.

Learning a new skill is always a great thing to do and lots of people have been trying new things for the first time while we have been away from school. If you would like a new and different challenge how about trying to learn some simple sign language. Watch the video on the link and learn how to say thank you. Its really simple but very effective. Let us know how you get on.

Learn how to use simple sign language

 

We hope that you have lots of fun trying out some of the activities above. Be sure to send us a message and some photos if you can. We love to hear from you! Have a super half-term. Enjoy the break and we shall be back with you ready to start a new topic after half-term. Take care and stay safe, love from everyone on the year 1 team.

Mrs Watkins, Mrs Rees, Mrs Jenkins, Mrs Altameemi and Mrs Liddell.

Home learning task updates,

Dear parents, guardians and year 1 children,

Following feedback from parents and discussions with Mrs Morgan and other staff, we are going to be moving away from setting specific tasks on set days or daily work as we appreciate how difficult it can be at the moment to organise completing this. We don't want anyone feeling that they are 'falling behind' if work is not completed on a specific day as you are all doing a fantastic job of helping your children learn. We completely understand that this is even more difficult if you are working from home or have other commitments.

 

With this in mind we will update this webpage with tasks at the beginning  of the week in order for you and your children to work through them in the most convenient way that works within your household. If there are some tasks that you are unable to complete please do not worry, simply pick and choose those which suit you best. We really do appreciate everything that you are doing during this difficult time and want to continue to give your children a broad range of activities to choose from that are manageable for you.

 

This will start after half term, on 1st June. Over the half term holidays we will continue to put up a range of fun activities for you to try if you wish. 

 

Love and hugs

The year 1 team.

Friday 21st May.

Bore da blwyddyn un. Here are your maths activities and we would like you to look at the following tasks and see how you get on. Record your answers into your pink book if you have room, or any paper will do. Remember to go at your own pace, and in your own time.

The first activity involves looking at the BBC home learning website. Click on the link below to find the activity.

Today we are going to be looking at comparing number sentences.

Click on the link below.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmf6hbk

 

Today we are going to learn how to compare number sentences involving addition and subtraction (taking away) using the greater than, less than and equal to symbols.This lesson includes:

  • 2 videos
  • 3 activities

Remember, more than and less than have special symbols that look like this:

 

The symbol > means more than   10 > 3 means 10 is more than 3

The symbol < means less than    3 < 10  means 3 is less than 10

This symbol = means equal to     10 = 10 means 10 is equal to 10

 

And now for another challenge! Have a go at the challenges below. If they are too tricky you might want a grownup to help you. That's fine! good luck!

Eric bakes these two trays of muffins.

He eats 2 muffins.

His dad eats 3 muffins.

His sister eats 4 muffins.

How many muffins does he have left?

 

 

Lola buys this key ring.

Her mum gives a quarter of the money.

She pays for the rest herself.

How much does she pay herself?

Good luck minibeast detectives and remember to look after the bees!

                  Wednesday 13th May

 

Bore da Blwyddyn 1 and croeso to your happy Wednesday. That means it is your maths activity day and we would like you to look at the following tasks and see how you get on. Record your answers into your pink book if you have room, or any paper will do. Remember to go at your own pace, and in your own time.

 

The first activity involves looking at the BBC home learning website. Click on the link below to find the activity.

Today we are going to be looking at fact families.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkd98xs

Watch Snoot and Finn add up some of their favourite snacks…

After the short clip read through the top tips to help you. Remember the ‘switchers’ you have been doing recently? This is what it is all about. This means you can subtract numbers just as easily as adding them up! How clever!

 

Next watch Finn and Snoot realise that subtraction is the opposite of addition. So…

2 + 4 = 6

4 + 2 = 6

6 – 2 = 4

6 – 4 = 2

Now try the worksheet on fact families. Either write it on the sheet or simply write them out into your pink book. There is a second sheet (from Twinkl) called related facts to do. Have a go if you can. Lastly, play the addition and subtraction levels of Karate Cats Maths. There are 3 levels to choose from: bronze, silver, and gold. They become more challenging as you go on. Change your level if is too easy or too hard.

 

Your second activity still involves fact families. Try writing out the fact families into your books for the following number sentences. Remember there will be 4 for each one. Look at the example above to remind you how to set it out. (There should be 2 addition ones and 2 subtraction ones each time.)

               3 + 2 = 5                 6 + 2 = 8                  5 + 4 = 9               7 + 3 = 10    

If you want to do some more, ask an adult to set you a challenge of different number sentences. Could you do any that add up to numbers to 20?  eg.   16 + 4 = 20…            

 

Tuesday 12th May 2020


Bore da pawb!  We hope that you are safe and well.  

This week, we have a lovely book to share with you all about patterns in nature.  You might need to ask an adult to help you log on to the Oxford Owl website and this is really easy to do.  Here is the link to the story.

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/digital_books/1348.html

What insects did you discover in the book?  Please write a list in your pink books.

 

Pob lwc Blyddyn Un!

We have all been super impressed with your mini beast work year 1. You certainly seem to be enjoying this topic and are wriggling and crawling through it enthusiastically.

 

1. Today you will be mini beast detectives. You need to find lots of interesting facts about your favourite mini beast. Use them to create a fact file. You can print off the sheet or use your pink book to draw your fact file. You can use the internet, books or maybe you can ask a mini beast expert if you have one in your house! Take your time and write neatly.

2. It’s story time year 1. This story is about a ladybird. This ladybird is a very lazy           ladybird. Click on the link below. Curl up and enjoy listening to this delightful story.

      The lazy ladybird

    4. Make your own mini beast online.  Use your mouse skills and make an awesome mini                   beast. Drag and drop the different parts to create your very own mini beast. Maybe              you can give your creature a name.

        http://resources.hwb.wales.gov.uk/VTC/minbeasts/eng/Introduction/default.htm

 

 

5. This week’s Bug of the Week is a bee. What amazing and interesting fact can you find      about a bee. Write it in your pink book. Maybe draw the bee using the step by step            activity and then write the fact. 

 

 

 

6. It’s art time. This week’s mini beast is of a bee. Follow the steps to draw a buzzy bee.     Colour it in neatly and remember the stripes.

Friday 8th May VE day Bank Holiday activities.

Bore da pawb. As you know tomorrow is the bank holiday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE day. We have put some activities together for you to try. Remember to look at the whole school activities, look for the VE Day star and click on that.

Before you start your activities ask a grown up to go through the power point with you so that you understand why we are commemorating this special day.

1. Make a poster. Write out the poem in your neatest handwriting. Then draw or paint a poppy. You could even scrunch up some paper and stick it in a poppy shape. If you want, draw a border of poppies around the outside of the page instead. Put the poem up in your window so everyone can see it. 

Picture 1

2. Make your own medal out of foil and some ribbon or material.  Wear it to show you remember.  You can write your name on it, what shape will you make ?

Picture 1

3. Make some bunting or paper chains and decorate your house or your front window. You can colour them red, white and blue or decorate them any way you wish. We know how you love to use your imagination year 1.

Good morning Year 1 and happy Thursday!

It's Thursday …. It's art and craft day!

We hope you are still enjoying learning about minibeasts!!

Your activity today is to design your own junk model minibeast out of cardboard and recycling materials.

Below are some ideas to help you.

 

Don't forget to send us your lovely models.

Be creative and have fun smiley

 

 

Wednesday 6th May.

 

Bore da Blwyddyn 1 and Happy Wednesday pawb! I hope you are having a good week so far and have been able to get out into the garden and maybe see some ladybirds or other insects? It's been ideal weather for getting out there bug-hunting!

Today is your maths activity day and remember you can complete them in your own time, and at your own pace.

 

The first activity involves using the BBC home learning website to practice number bonds. Click the link below and follow the guidance for this lesson. It involves watching 2 short videos and completing 3 tasks. Try to do some or all of them. Let us know how you are getting on by tweeting, emailing your teacher or uploading a video to Flipgrid.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zh8m6v4

 

The second activity involves the number of the week. Today it is 20. Can you make some number sentences with numbers that add up to 20? These can be written into your pink books (or on any paper) like this...

19 + 1 = 20     or       1 + 19 = 20   (remember to use the switcher!)

18 + 2 = 20    or       2 + 18 = 20   and so on...

If you think back to last week's task can you see any sort of pattern that might help you? (Look back in your book if you want to). In maths we are always looking for patterns and things to make it easier to remember. Remember these are part of your 'Learn Its', so keep practising saying them out loud and writing them down too. If you have some chalk can you write them outside somewhere? On the drive? On the patio? Make sure an adult says yes first, and that it is in a safe place to do so.  Take photos if you can.

 

Challenge 1:

This is half of Lee's strawberries.

 

 

How many strawberries does Lee have altogether?

This is half of Lee's shape. Draw it in your book.

 

 

What could the whole shape look like? Now draw the new shape.

 

Challenge 2: This is quite tricky!!

Jenny buys a lolly and a chew.  

 

 

The lolly costs 2p more than the chew.

The total cost of the two  items is 22p.

How much does the lolly cost? Write your answer into your book.

Tuesday May 5th 2020

 

Happy Tuesday pawb!

 

This week's book is a lovely book called 'Do You Wonder Why Bugs Are Good?' It tells us about insects and how they help us, especially in the garden. Don't worry if you don't have a copy at home, you can read it here by copying the link below:

 

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2081/8163/files/Do_you_Wonder_Why_Bugs_Are_Good.pdf?5538787067396429544

 

Once you have read the book, we would like you to chose 5 different minibeasts and write a few sentences about each one in your pink book. You could tell us what they do and how they help us or what they look like. You could even draw a picture of the minibeast!

 

Good luck in your mission Minibeast Detectives!

 

Monday 4th May 2020.

Today's activities are maths activities but remember that you can complete these in your own time, at your own pace.  

 

The first activity involves using the BBC home- learning website to practise counting on and back in 5's within 50.

You can print the table (below) or copy this into your home learning book. We would like you to record how many of each bug you can spot and record this using a tally system. 

We have used a tally system at school to count how many electrical items we could find and also to work out the most/least popular foods when tasting traditional foods from Wales. Watch the video to help you to remember why a tally is useful and how we write this. 

 

https://youtu.be/-pEA3w8SQws

 

Remember to count in 5's and record each multiple of 5 (5,10, 15, 20 etc) using the gate.
