Pre Easter Work

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Below I have given the children some tasks that we would have covered in class, had we been in. I have also added some activities to keep the children busy for the time that they are off. 

Thank you for all of your support with the children this academic year. They are achieving fantastic things! I hope that during this time off, you will see how much progress they have made.   

In light of it all, the serenity pray comes to mind;

God grant me the serenity 
to accept the things I cannot change;  
courage to change the things I can;  
and wisdom to know the difference.

Please stay safe and look after yourselves.

God Bless

Mrs A

Writing  

If you have access to a computer, children are to go onto http://www.pobble365.com/. Each day, there will be a picture. The children will need to complete the Perfect Picture’ section and the ‘Sick Sentences’ section.  

Spelling

Spellings for the first half of the summer term will be on the website. Children are to write sentences for these words

Phonics

Please refer to phonics websites for the children to play games. Children can also watch Alphablocks online.

Please ensure that the children are practicing their sounds using their sound mats, they are available on our school website. We normally look at a sound and come up with words that have that sound in it and then we write sentences using those words. Children should have a go at this please during their time off. 

Reading

The children will need to read every day. If you do not have books at home, you can visit a library (if they are open) or listen to stories on Youtube. In English, we have been looking at traditional tales. Can you find any more traditional tales online?

Classroom secrets have fantastic pieces for the children to read also. Try and answer the comprehension questions https://classroomsecrets.co.uk/free-home-learning-packs/ .

Maths

In Maths, we are looking at weight and volume. We would then be moving on to multiplication. Have a look at https://classroomsecrets.co.uk/free-home-learning-packs/ under these areas for some good resources. 

Children can also revise;

  • Place value up to 100

  • Addition and subtraction

  • Length and height

  • Weight and volume

Maybe try and do some cooking and measure the ingredients?

Children can also go onto Timetable Rockstars and Numbobs (which is more accessible to children in year 1) using their Timetable Rockstarts log in. 

R.E

In R.E we are talking about changes and preparing ourselves for the celebration of Easter. 

Activities;

  • Draw a picture of their favourite season and say why it is their favourite.

  • Draw a heart and inside of it, write or draw ways in which you can change and make a new start.

  • Research why Catholics celebrate Ash Wednesday. 

  • Complete these sentences: 

I can think of Jesus often by…..

I can think of others by,…

I can do something extra by…

I can give up ……

  • Can you make Palm trees out of paper and roleplay the story of Jesus entering into Jerusalem?  

  • Decorate a cross shape bookmark or decorate a cross that you have drawn.

  • Make an Easter Story board or story map. Can you challenge yourself to writing the story out

  • Make an Easter basket

 

Science

In science we have been looking at everyday materials and we will be moving onto plants. 

  • Design or make an umbrella for a teddy bear using waterproof materials. Label it and tell me why you have used the materials that you have used. 

  • Draw a flower and label the different parts of the flower.

  • Can you plant a seed? Look after the plant and see how long you can keep it alive (Cress and tomato plants tend to be the easiest to plant and care for)Tell me what you did, how long did it take to grow, where did you keep it, how much did you have to water it?

  • Make two columns. Fill one column with pictures of food that comes from a plant and fill the other column with foods that do not come from a plant. 

Topic

We have been looking at the weather in hot and cold countries and we will be moving on to looking at Significant People and Events and transport.

  • Draw a picture of what you would wear on a very hot day and draw a picture of what you would wear on a very cold day. Can you describe how they are different and why?

  • Can you make some form of transport out of everyday materials in your home?

  • Can you find out why these people are known as significant people;  

-Neil Armstrong

-Nelson Mandela

-Mary Seacole

-Florence Nightingale

Draw a picture of the significant people and tell me what they did that was special and why we still talk about them today.

  • Design a hot air balloon. Can you research when the first hot air balloon was made. Do you know who invented hot air balloons?

 

And if you still want things to do…..

  • Try and do some cooking

  • Draw me a picture of what you can see from your window

  • Have a go at the Lego challenge (attached at the bottom of this page)

  • Write me a letter

  • Write a prayer to ask God to look after all of our families and friends. 

  • Teach your families one of our school songs
