Monday 23rd November 2020 

Good morning, Year 1!

We hope you had a nice weekend and enjoyed the sunshine. Just a couple of notes:

  • The school photos which were due to be on Wednesday 25th November 2020 will be rearranged for a later date.
  • We will still be able to take part in the school nativity too, as we will film our songs when we get back to school.

 

We know that our Year 1 bubble closing might feel a bit strange, but it is very important that we continue to work hard and try our best. We will still be choosing a Shooting Star each week and giving out Merits and House Points too.  

 

Every morning we will be putting work onto the website for you to complete, and we will be following the same timetable we have when we are at school. Some activities may be practical, which is sometimes how we work in school.

 

You can complete the activities for the day in any order you choose. If you need any help, have any questions or would like to send us your fabulous work, please send them to advice@mapledeneschool.com

 

Take care, we will miss you all.  

Miss Young, Mrs Robinson and Miss Briggs

 

Monday: (the links you will need for the following are all available below.)

 

English

We have been reading different ‘Old Bear’ stories by Jane Hissey. Please can you watch ‘The Boat Race’ on YouTube as this is what our English work will be based on this week. 

 

In the story the animals realised their paper boat was more like a hat! So we would like you to have a go at making your own paper hat, watching the video below to help you. You can then decorate the hat however you choose and give it to one of your teddies!

 

Maths – Money

We have been practising recognising different coins. This game below is great to help us sort and order the coins. Leave the counting coins until later in the week. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/money/coins-game

You could also sort coins practically if you have a money box or purse at home!  

 

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

We hope you enjoyed the boat race story, we are looking forward to seeing the paper hats that you have made.

 

For the rest of the day can you complete these activities:

Read an oxford owl reading book based on the colour you are on. (link below)

Maths

Watch the number formation video linked below, and practise your number formation either with the strips below or just on paper. Take your time, it is important you are forming them correctly.

Children can also practise writing the number names too as this is part of our curriculum. E.g. 4 – four.

Science

Practical floating and sinking

Fill a washing up bowl, bucket or any container you have with some water, gather some household items that you can use to explore floating and sinking. Can you draw and label pictures of the items you experimented with? Did any surprise you? Ideas of some objects you could use: a metal spoon, a key, stick or stone, leaf, rubber duck, coin or a plastic ball.

 

Don’t forget to send us the work you have been doing and well done on completing the tasks set today.

Take care and speak tomorrow!
