Thursday 8th October
Here we are, our final day of isolation! (assuming that none of you or your family members are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms). Miss Atkinson and I look forward to seeing you at School tomorrow (Friday 9th). Any of you that have completed the activities but have not sent us emails of your work please bring it in with you (we can photo-copy work if it was written in note-pads.) If you have emailed us your work already we have compiled a folder of your work which we will print out and keep as a record of your home learning. 

Maths: We are continuing the learning from yesterday on using place value charts. As the video demonstrates you will be writing number sentences to represent the numbers shown in place value charts and then completing place value charts yourself to represent the given numbers. 

 White Rose Maths Video (click here) (Watch from 5 mins 20 secs)

Phonics: Today we will be learning to read words and sentences with the 'au' sound in, as in 'Paul'. The video below provides some examples of words with 'au' in .

Letters and Sounds 'au' Video (click here)

Grammar: Building on the activity that we did last week today you will be writing sentences which have extended noun phrases in them. See the activitiy sheet for an example and word banks with example nouns and adectives. (If you didn't do last Thursday's Grammar activity it would be helpful to go back and do that-or at least watch the video which will explain what they are!)

RE: As well as our learning about 'The lost Son' we have also been learning about the Christian Value of 'Respect'. We have already learnt about having respect for our-self, our parents and today you will be thinking about having respect for the environment. We want you to think about what you can do to respect the world around you? What can you do or are you already doing to 'go green'? There is some information on the CBBC website below that will help you.

CBBC: Going Green (Click here)

 

We hope that your final day of home learning goes well.  If there are any activities that you haven't had chance to do over the last week or so then why not have a go at those too today? And remember if you haven't already please do share your work with us either via email or bring it into School tomorrow.  We are both so proud of how you have approached your learning, we do know that it is not easy (for parents too!) so a big THANK YOU to you all for trying your best!

We are looking forward to seeing you all again tomorrow*-in person!
Mrs Appleyard and Miss Atkinson.


(*If you are not going to be in School tomorrow (Friday 9th) you must contact the School Office to let them know the reason for your child's absence. Thank you)

Wednesday 7th October

Maths: Today you will be learning to use place value charts to represent numbers, rather than part-whole models. Watch the White Rose Maths Video and you will see demonstrations using base 10, place value counters and even lego bricks.
 

White Rose Maths Video (Watch up until 5 mins 20 secs only today)

 

English: Phonics: Today you will be learning to read the sounds ‘aw’ as in paw and ‘oe’ as in toe. Watch the videos to introduce the sounds then complete the activity; matching words and pictures and then reading sentences and choosing the correct picture.
 

Letters and Sounds 'aw' Video

Letters and Sounds 'oe' Video


English: RIC: Today we will be looking at a non-fiction text called 'History of Seaside Holidays'. Read the text and then answer the questions. Remember to ask a grown up to help you read any of the trickier words.

 

Science: As part of our topic on animals we are thinking about pet animals today. Many of you have a pet-cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pig, fish and many more I am sure. Pets, like all animals, need food, water, shelter and exercise to survive. Pet owners need to provide these things to keep the animal heathy. Today you will watch a short video clip and read about how to look after a pet dog, then you will answer some questions about this. If you’d like to show us your pets you can send us a photo when you send us your work-remember to tell us their names too.
 

BBC Bitesize 'Looking after pets' Video
 

Extra challenge:  Can you think of any questions that you could ask the teachers at School about how they care for their dogs?  For example; How many times a day do you walk your dog? Write your questions down and in a few weeks time we will interview the teachers and you can ask them these questions yourselves.

Have a good day :-) 

Tuesday 6th October
Good morning everyone!

Here are today's tasks:

Maths
We are continuing looking at using number sentences but today you are given some of the two of the numbers and you have to work out the missing number. Drawing part-whole models will help you, or using practical objects again. Please watch the White Rose video from 3 mins 45 seconds as this will help you. 

White Rose Maths video (3 mins 45 sec onwards) https://vimeo.com/456121633

Phonics
Today we are going to look at the ar and or sound. I would like you to write the word and then see if you can write it in a sentence. Remember as a challenge: see if you can use our tricky words her, all and are in your sentences. Don't forget your capital letters and full stops. Below are some links for videos to watch to help you with the sounds:

RIC
Today our RIC will be looking at beach habitats. Read the text and then answer the questions. Remember you can get a grown up to help you read some of the trickier words. 

Geography
Today we are going to look at creating a simple map of a seaside town. First I would like you to look through the powerpoint and discuss the questions with a grown up. Then you are going to create your own simple map of a seaside town using the symbols given. You can choose to either draw your own map and add the symbols or you can use the map outline provided and add the symbols to the map. You can either print out the symbols, cut them out and stick them on or you can draw the symbols yourself. Remember to give your map a title and create a key so that we know what the symbols mean. I have attached an example of a map to help. 

Have a good day everyone!
Miss Atkinson and Mrs Appleyard
Monday 5th October
Good Morning everyone!

We hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready for another week of home learning. Here are your tasks for today:

Maths: Today we are moving on to writing number sentences to represent the values show in part-whole models. As last week watching the White Rose video will explain how to do this-please only watch up to 3 mins 45 secs as we will be doing activities on the rest of the content tomorrow. Again using real objects like lego bricks in blocks of tens and then some single bricks for ones or spaghetti to represent tens and then pasta pieces for ones will help you. If you didn't complete last weeks activities it would help with todays activity if you went back and did so.

White Rose Maths: Tens and Ones  https://vimeo.com/456121633

Phonics: In our phonics lesson today we will be looking at the long 'oo' as in spoon and the short 'oo' as in book. I would like you to write the 'oo' words and then see if you can put them into a sentence. As an extra challenge see if you can include our tricky words: her, all and are in your sentences. 
Below are a couple of links to videos for your child to watch focused on the long and short oo sound. Don't panic about them saying they are for Reception children. We are focusing on the writing of these sounds which is more difficult. In Reception the children focus on the reading of the sounds.

RIC- In our RIC sessions this week we will be reading some non-fiction texts all abut seasides. Today's text is called 'All about Beaches' Read the text and then see if you can answer the questions. 

PSHE- For PSHE today we are going to continue to think about people who are special to us. I would like you to choose one special person and draw a picture of them in the box. Then you need to think of 5 ways you show them that you care. 

Have a good day everyone!

Friday 2nd October
Good morning Ruby Class. Mrs Appleyard and Miss Atkinson were both really impressed with the work that you completed yesterday. It is great to see you continuing to try your best even when things are a little different to normal. 

Today, as we will every day, we will be holding Zoom sessions at 9.30 and 12.30 to introduce today's learning tasks. You only need to attend one of these sessions. As it is Friday and usually we'd have Golden Time we will be hosting a 'social' Zoom session where you can talk to your friends from class. This session is optional. The links to today's tasks  are at the end of today's instructions.


Maths: Today's learning follows on from yesterday's but today you will be partitioning numbers in different ways not just tens and ones. We would highly recommend that you watch the White Rose Maths video (link below) from 5 mins in as this will explain the activity for you. The Oak National Academy will also help to support your understanding too. It would help you if you could get some objects to help you count in tens and ones-likes spaghetti for tens and pa
sta pieces for ones or lego bricks-with towers for tens and individual bricks for ones.  One member of our class did this yesterday using 3 plates as the 3 parts: whole-part-part and multi-link cubes and it looked like lots of fun!

White Rose Maths: Tens and Ones: https://vimeo.com/455404236 (It is the same video as yesterday but watch FROM 5 MINS in) 
OR The Oak National Academy: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/partitioning-2-digit-numbers-part-2-c8t30c?activity=intro_quiz&step=1 (Quiz and video).

English: Today in Phonics you will be developing your writing/spelling skills focusing on the 'oa' sound as in coat or goat. There is also a 'phoneme spotter' activity where you need to find and read as many words as you can with the 'oa' sound in.
                                                                             

English: You will also be completing a RIC activity (Retrieve, Interpret and Choice-basically a Reading Comprehension.) We have been reading the text 'The See-Saw' by Tom Pervical. This is a beautiful story about Sofia who loses her teddy after a day at the beach. You can listen to the story on you tube (but you don't need to to be able to do today's activity.)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9g6fvG_K9ms

Today's 'other' curriculum task is an RE activity. We have been reading the Biblical story of 'The Lost Son', you can watch it again if you'd like to. Today's activity focuses on the 'hidden meaning' behind the story and makes connections to you and your parents. It will be a nice activity to do whilst you are working with your parents rather than in school.
BBC Bitesize video clip: The Parable of The Lost Son @ https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zsmpvcw
Thursday 1st October

Please see the table above for the learning objectives for each session today. The tasks are attached below and we have also included some links to online resources that you might find useful to support your learning.

Science: Grouping animals. In our Science lesson last week Mrs Appleyard introduced the animal groups: Mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians. We found it difficult to decide whether some of the animals were ‘reptiles’ or ‘amphibians’ so we will have another go at sorting different animals in today’s task. (If you are unable to print the pictures out you could number them going across and then make a list e.g. 1) reptile, 2) ? Remember the main difference between reptiles and amphibians is their skin: Reptiles like lizards have scaly, dry skin whereas amphibians like frogs have moist (wet) skin.

Online resources for support (there are a couple of pdfs above too-I've not worked out how to share documents and weblinks in the same section yet, sorry!)

You do NOT have to watch/read all (or even any) of these resources but they will help you (and your parents) with the tasks set. The mini-tasks that the teachers in these videos set will further secure your understanding of the topics so would be useful to do but do not need recording or sharing with us. However, the main tasks set at the end of such video resources do NOT need completing as we have set our own tasks linked to either our topics or books as well as prior learning.

Maths:


English:
Science:


Please do contact either Mrs Appleyard @ gemma.appleyard@hunsletstmarys.co.uk  or Miss Atkinson @ louise.atkinson@hunsletstmarys.co.uk if you have any questions about the tasks and we will do our best to help you: We may be able to provide further support via Zoom if necessary. Please also contact us if you have trouble accessing anything or if parents are finding it difficult to support children due to work commitments we do appreciate that remote learning presents many challenges! We will try our best to support both children and parents through this period.
 

Sorry that there is so much information today! As it is the first day there is lots to share, we will all get used to this way of working soon.
 

Have a good day! See you at 9.30am or 12.30pm in our Zoom sessions for an explanation of today’s tasks. The Zoom log on details were emailed out to parents yesterday evening if we their email address on file at school. If your parents haven’t received these details and would like them, please email us ASAP.

Please email me if you need any help or would like to show me your wonderful work. Have a good day.

Miss Berry's Cress Diary

Over the next few weeks I would like to share with you things I am doing at home to keep busy.. and things you can have a go at too.
I have planted some cress seeds today and would like to share it's journey with Ruby class. 
On day 1: I put a small amount of soil in a small pot. I pushed the cress seeds inside the soil and watered it.
I have decided to put my cress seeds in the sunlight.
Can anyone tell me why this is a good idea? 
If you want to come on this journey with me you can buy cress seeds from most supermarkets and I would love
to share the photos on here. 


Day 2
The cress has started to grow and the roots have pushed up the soil.
Does anyone know why the cress needs roots?
What is the function of roots? 

Day 3 
This morning I woke up to find the cress has grown out of the soil. What can you see in this picture?
What has started to grow from the soil? 



 
Thursday 2nd April

Good Morning! I hope your Fluent in 15 activities have gone well. Today I have uploaded a 'Great Fire of London' fact sheet with questions. If you have already looked at our topic work on the website you may already know some of these answers. But do remember to find in the text where you have found your answer. You could colour this in a different colour. Today's challenge: Choose a list of common exception words to write. Focusing on how the word is spelt and writing it with neat handwriting. If you do not have a printer, write the words on lined paper for your children. Can you write on the line?

Monday 20th April

Welcome back from your Easter Holiday. I hope you have all kept busy and safe. As social distancing continues, please remind children at home of our school rules: to be ready, respectful and safe. I am missing everybody very much and I will aim to contact everybody at some point this week from school phones. Today I would like you to make a school rules poster and put it up at home, and ask your children to ask themselves, are they being ready, respectful and safe? Today's challenge: complete Monday's Fluent in 15. Remember to aim for it to last 15 minutes. Please do send work to my class email.

Wednesday 1st April

Today have a go at completing the Fluent in 15 of the day. Once again, if you do not have a printer you can write the questions down on paper for your child to complete. Using the red book that was sent home is a good idea to record your answers. Todays challenge: Can you draw and label 2D shapes, including a circle, triangle, square, rectangle, hexagon, pentagon and octagon? Write the shapes name and how many sides it has. I am really enjoying the work that everyone is sending to my email. Keep it up! In addition, Mr Keddie has now set every Year 1 child up with a Numbots username and password. It is a super fun maths game with different levels to complete. Numbots is used in every year group, so why not try it now? Email me for your personal username and password to get started. Numbots : https://play.numbots.com/#/account/search-school

Internet Safety

During time off school children will be more likely to use technology and go online. This is why it is important to check your child's device and talk to your child/children about online safety. The NSPCC website offers good advice on how to approach the conversation of online safety and gives good advice on what you can do as parents/careers to keep your child safe online. Please make sure all devices children use are checked to see what they are accessing, as well as having parent locks where available. Remember to spend some time away from the screen by going outside or keeping busy. Have a look at some good ideas of non-screen based activities. NSPCC: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/talking-child-online-safety/ .

Useful Reading Tips

You should aim to read with your child everyday. You can read a variety of books (as stated below) during school closures, and encourage your child to talk about the book. Whilst reading, ask questions and discuss the storyline of the book. In Ruby class we have been reading Paddington by Micheal Bond. I have provided some useful links to suitable books, including Paddington. Reading activities can be fun, just like Acer's Paddington model which he made after reading the story. 

Types of books we can read

School phonic books 
Story books 
Non- fiction books 
Comics
Audio books 
Youtube/ online books 

Useful links- books we have used in our repeated text libary

Monday 30th March

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is doing well and keeping busy. I have provided some activities to complete today. Some activities may take longer than one day so do remember this. Have a go at the Year 1 Maths Activity Booklet, Phase 3 reading activity and writing sentences. I have also uploaded some fun art ideas to complete at the bottom of this page. Remember to go outside for a walk and have a go at some mindfulness activities too. There are key documents on this page to help with work that has been set, and other activities that can be revised all the time. Have a wonderful day, Miss Berry :)

Useful documents for phonics

Children could have a go at: reading and writing tricky words, reading and writing Phase 5 words, reading and writing Year 1 common exception words, practising letter formation handwriting and reading and writing sentences, using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

Daily Phonics practise 

Children should be practising Phase 5 phonics sounds everyday. A simple lesson may look like this:

1) Recapping and revising Phase 5 sounds using flashcards 
2) Reading words with Phase 5 sounds in 
3) Writing words with Phase 5 sounds in 

Twinkl are providing free resources online that are useful for reading: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/class-management/school-closure-home-learning-classroom-management-key-stage-1-year-1-year-2
Another fun game that is very useful is 'Buried Treasure': https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/Phase5Menu.htm

If you do access these websites, please focus on Phase 4 and Phase 5 phonics. Children should read first, then move on to writing. 
Mathematics

In maths we are looking at numbers 0-50. During time off school, it is important children have time to practise mathematics they have learnt this year, and revise this until we return to school. All children are provided with workbooks to show their work when we do return to school. Feel free to use manipulatives/ concrete objects to show their mathematics and thinking (sometimes this can be more fun), and you could show this by sending photos/work to my email which I can share for other adults and children to see. For extra help, we use WhiteRose Maths. Use the link to access more resources: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Children can practise simple additions, within both 10 and 20. E.g. 13 + 4 = 
Practising subtractions within 10 and 20. E.g. 17 - 6 = 
Working out how many tens and ones numbers have (from 0-50) E.g. 34 has 3 tens and 4 ones
Practise counting to 50 forwards and backwards 
Practise counting in 2's, 5's and 10's
Names and properties of shapes

Useful links for Mathematics

Mental Mathematics

Mental mathematics can also be practised by setting children certain time frames to complete a set of simple questions. We suggest that 15 minutes is provided for 15 questions. Children will undertsand this process as 'Fluent in 15'. 
Another way to make mental maths fun is to have a go at the online game 'Hit the Button'. We play this in class so children will be familair with the game. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button 

Easy Mathematics to do at home
At home Acer has done some wonderful money work, using real life coins.
Have your own money challenge just like Acer has.
1) What coins could you use to buy a 30p banana? How many ways can you do this? 
2) I have 50p. Apples are 10p, sweets are 5p and oranges are 20p. What can I buy? 
3) Can you recognise and draw the coins. Label the coins using the 'p' and '£' sign.

Alisa and Thomas have also sent me work, come and have a look.

Project work (History and Geography)

In project time, we have focused on London. Our next project leads on from this, looking at The Great Fire of London. Please look at the Great Fire of London PowerPoint and answer the reading questions afterwards. Answers could we written in homework books. I have provided story cards too to sequence, to build up their knowledge and understanding of the event. Children can also make their own London newspaper, poems and senses sheet based upon the Great Fire of London.

Easter Holiday Fun 

During the Easter Holidays a perfect idea to keep children busy is to bake! Children love to be messy and have fun.
Have a go at baking some Easter chocolate buns and send the pictures to Miss Berry's email address.
I would love to share the fun you are having.
Acer has made Easter Cornflake buns! Have a look at his lovley work.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness can improve mental wellbeing, for both parents and children. So why not spend 10 minutes of your day practising mindfulness and improving your mental wellbeing. This could be a part of your morning routine and getting your children ready for a positive day. Similarly,  before bedtime can be calming and relaxing for children who are feeling overwhelmingly stressed during school closures. 

Benefits of mindfulness
