Year 1 wc 11th January 2021
Our topic this half term is 'Africa'.
Each day there will be a live zoom lesson, one for English and one for Maths.
We are combining Y1/2 lessons together as they are part of Key Stage 1.
Please find below an overview of the related activities that your child can do. We have differentiated and created 4 tasks, starting with simple steps, leading up to more of a challenge. These are applicable for children in Y1 and Y2. If you need more guidance about where to aim the tasks for your child, please contact your class teacher via dojo.
English- The story of Handa's Surprise.
I will read the story on Monday's zoom lesson at 2.15pm. You can also find an animated version here HANDA'S SURPRISE Picture Book Animation - Bing video
Monday- Read the story. Re-tell the story to your adult. If you have toy animals it may help to re tell the story. You could print the attached pictures, or draw your own simple versions to help re-tell the story. Use the workbook from school to record your child’s work. You can send pictures via dojo message or ideally the portfolio section. Talking is really important when re telling stories and should be the focus before any writing takes place.
*match the animals to the fruit
** match the animals to the fruit and write the names of the animals/fruit
*** Write simple sentences eg The monkey took the banana.
**** Write detailed sentences eg The cheeky monkey grabbed the soft, ripe, yellow banana.
We have also set some related tasks on Purple Mash. You don’t have to do this in addition to these tasks, but as another option to complete the tasks.

Make sure you have dedicated reading time each day. This can be an appropriate book they can read themselves, read a story to them and talk about it, use the sounds and words learnt in phonics to read words and sentences or answer questions about this week’s text. There are also ebooks available to read on Oxford Owl.
Monday- This links to the topic lesson.
Where do you think the story is set?
What is it like? Look at the pictures to describe it. What can you see?
Retrieval questions- what is the name of the girl? Can you spell it/write it?
What did the elephant/antelope/giraffe take?
What did Handa use to carry the fruit? Where was Handa going?
Please find below the Maths zoom lesson 11th Jan. I have cropped the start and end to make a smaller file to enable me to upload it.
This week we will be learning about 3D and 2D shapes.
Monday- There will be an introduction to 3D shapes in the zoom lesson at 11am. The children will do a shape hunt around the house and if you are on zoom we can look at what they found.
*Name simple 3D shapes (cube, cuboid, cylinder and sphere). Name the objects they have found.
**Name simple 3D shapes (cube, cuboid, cylinder and sphere). Find 3 shapes that are the same.
*** Match the name to the shape. (cut the label off the attached 3d pictures to match them up.) Find at least 3 of each shape. Eg cylinder- cup/toilet roll tube/tin.
****Record their shape hunt. There is a sheet attached, but if you can’t print all you need to do, is draw/write the name of the shape. Children to record using a tally system. What can they tell you about their findings? What did they find most of? What was harder to find? Why?
Maths Tuesday Tasks
3d shapes vertices (the pointy bits)
*Find the vertices on your 3d shapes
**Count and record the number of vertices on your 3d shapes
*** Count and record in a table the number of vertices on your 3d shapes.
**** Present your findings in a table. Write stem sentences to explain your work.
Stem sentences- A cube has ____ vertices. A cuboid has ___ vertices. There are more vertices on a ________ than a ________.
Please find below the Maths zoom lesson Tuesday 12th Jan.
Maths Wednesday Tasks
3d shapes- faces are the flat shapes you can see on the 3d shape
*Find the faces on your 3d shapes
**Count and record the number of faces on your 3d shapes
*** Count and record in a table the number of faces on your 3d shapes.
**** Present your findings in a table. (You could add onto yesterday’s table.) Write stem sentences to explain your work.
Stem sentences- A cube has ____ _____ faces. A cuboid has ___ square faces and __ rectangle faces.
Please see below for Maths zoom lesson 13 Jan
Thursday Maths tasks
To find the number of edges a 3D shape has.
*To find the edges of a 3D shape
**To count and verbally say how many edges a 3D shape has
***To match the 3D shapes to its properties
****To match the 3D shapes to its properties.
‘3D shapes always have more edges than faces.’ Do you agree? Why?
‘ A cube has 6 faces and 12 edges, so a square-based pyramid must have 5 faces and 10 edges. The number of edges is always double the number of faces.’ Do you agree? Why?
Maths lesson recording 14.1.21
Today we have been sorting 3D shapes. We have been thinking of different ways that we could sort 3D shapes.
*To group 3D shapes depending if the can roll or not
**To physically group shapes depending on if the can roll and the number of vertices they have
***To sort the shapes depending upon their properties
****To sort shapes a number of ways. To create own thoughts on way shapes can be sorted.
Please find maths lesson below 15.1.21
Children are grouped in school for phonics, so if you are not sure where your child is up to or what they should be learning, please get in touch.
Y1 children were all given their relevant sound mat recently to take home to practice. All sound mats are attached here too.
phonicsplay.co.uk are giving free access again to their website. We use this in school so the children will be familiar with the games and resources.
If you want other online links we sometimes use Mr Thorne does phonics in school. You can search ‘Mr Thorne’ and the phase/sound you want.
Another good fun one is ‘Mr Mc’. He is from Northern Ireland so does have an accent but his activities are fun and engaging.
Each phase has a set of tricky words to read. They usually read them first and then learn to spell them later on.
High frequency words are words that the children will come across regularly in their reading. If there are HFW in their phase then they will be based on the letters they have learned and will be able to sound them out. Encourage the children to read and recognise these words. If they know it, they don’t need to sound it out.
This weeks sounds:
Phase 2 recap s a t p i n m d
HFW: is it in at
Tricky words: to the I
Recognise the sounds. Match the sounds. Make words using sound cards. Make rhyming words. Make up alien/nonsense words.
Phase 3 recap j v w x including s a t p I n m d g o c k ck e u r h b f ff l ll ss (these are the phase 2 cards that are attached). If you can't print then you can write the sounds on individual bits of paper/card.
Tricky words to read: he she
Tricky words to spell: to the
We don’t currently have a phase 4 group. This phase is a consolidation phase of phase 3 and encourages the children to identify and say blends eg ‘str’ as in string.
New sounds: oy (boy, annoy, employ) ir (girl, skirt, thirteen) ue (venue, statue, argue) aw (yawn, shawl, drawer)
Tricky words to read: oh their people
