Hello Year One,
Well done for continuing your home learning - you are all doing so well! Well done to parents too - Thank you for working so hard with your children and uploading their work to Seesaw.
This week we are going to be continuing our learning about animals and we will be looking at a non-fiction text. Can you remember the difference between fiction and non-fiction?
Keep up your fabulous learning! If you do need the school to print off any work for your child to complete at home, please do contact the school and we can print and send home the learning each week.
Discuss the difference between fiction and non-fiction:
Your child will study a range of non-fiction texts throughout primary school and you'll find lots of information and worksheets in this section to help them, whether its reading and understanding text structure and organisation, writing informative text or about an event, writing reviews, lists, labels and captions, titles and blurbs or putting instructions in order.
See if you can find a non-fiction book at home. If you don't have one, take a look on Oxford owl and choose a text from there to read. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/?view=image&query=&type=book&age_group=Age+5-6&level=&level_select=&book_type=&series=#
What things does a non-fiction book have that a fiction book doesn't? Write a list. (Contents page, glossary, facts etc)
Play the following game for phonics. https://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/yes-no-yeti?phase=5 and have a go at reading the tricky word trucks.
Try and complete the activities attached below.
Attached are the flash 4 and some problems for you to have a go at this week.
RE - Sacraments
Read/Watch the story of Jesus healing the officials daughter. Discuss the importance of having faith. Draw a picture of how they can help people who are sick and write a prayer asking Jesus to take care of those who are unwell.
We are continuing to learn about animals in our science learning. Watch the attached video to find out about habitats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrSWYE37MJs
Think about a farm - what habitats do we find at a farm? Draw a picture of a farm and label some of the areas within your farm. Think about the sorts of animals that would live in them. For example - a pond - frogs, tadpoles, fish etc.
Create your own circuit. Include some stretched to warm up, some movements in the middle and some cool down stretches. Share your circuit with your family. See if you can do more each day.
Go on a colour walk! Go outside and choose a colour. On your walk, see how many things, man made and natural you can find in your chosen colour. Maybe you could take pictures of all of the things you see that are your colour - Or you could draw them.
Draw a picture of a farm. Don't forget to include pens for the animals, a pond, fields, a barn. You could watch YouTube videos to help you with your animal drawings. You could link this activity with the science :)
