Week 3

English

If you have some Phase 2, Phase 3 or Phase 5 sounds to learn (as shown on the sound mat pictures on the 'Week 1' and 'Week 2' pages), please continue learning these. You could learn them through the new updated version of  https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/


-    Choose the correct phase of sounds that your child needs to learn. 
-    They are letting everybody log in for free and access all the resources.

 

Another game you could play is Phonics battleships. It is adaptable for every child. You could put the sounds your child needs to learn, you could write tricky words in each box that they need to learn to read, or you could put words they need to learn to spell and they can spell each word out. I have added pictures below of what this might look like. 

If you know all of your Phase 2, 3 and 5 sounds it is now time to keep applying the knowledge by reading texts with these sounds in. Please also visit the Home learning info for parents section on our home learning page to find spelling lists for each year group and fun ways to learn spellings. 
Mathematics

We have been learning to add and subtract using a number line! On my number line below I have worked out the sum 9 + 6 = 15.
 

Activity: Can you print or draw a number line and work out some adding and subtracting number sentences?

I have included some pictures below of some adding and subtracting games that you could adapt and play at home. Can you work out the sums to get three in a row? Can you throw a bean bag or a ball at the different numbers and write and solve your own adding or subtracting sums? Remember, that when we subtract, we put the biggest number we land on first.

Science

By the end of year 1 children should be able to observe and describe changes across the four seasons.

 

Think about what you might see in each season.

How does the weather change?

How does what we wear change?

How do the leaves on the trees change?

Can you work out which season is behind the binoculars? I will reveal the answers next Monday!

Activity: Can you show the differences between the four seasons in a creative way? I have attached some ideas below.

Seasons Song

Topic- Flight

How would we get to space? Can you follow the instructions below to create your own rocket? If you have different materials at home, you could even design and make your own rocket!

 

Outdoor Learning

Activity: Can you make a bubble machine?

 

You will need a plastic bottle, a pair of scissors, some fairy liquid and a sock.

How to make it:

  1. Cut the bottom of the bottle off
  2. Put the sock over the bottom of the bottle and pull it up until it is flat
  3. Put some washing up liquid and water into a tub
  4. Dip the sock end of the bottle into the water
  5. Blow the bubbles! 

 

Did you know that blowing is good for speech!!

 

Why not try some coloured bubbles? Dip your sock into food colouring before the washing up liquid and watch your colourful bubbles blow!

 

Please send in pictures of your bubble machines so I can share them on our home learning class page!
