Wednesday 3rd March

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks and happy Wednesday! This is our last day that will have zoom sessions in the morning! Can you believe it? You have all done such an amazing job being so present every day for our maths zooms. It has been a joy to see you every day. Not long now until we see each other face to face woohoo!

 

Please see today's learning below. Have a great day!

 

Maths - Today we are practising recognising numbers using tens and ones. Please follow the teaching slides if you are unable to join the Zoom session this morning. 

 

 

 

The worksheets today are an optional activity, you could instead try the game below to practice your numbers to 20 at home.

 

How to play the I am thinking of a number game.

 

Think of a number in your head between 1 - 20 and provide clues for your fellow player to guess what number is in your head!

 

For example:

 

I am thinking of a number. It is more than 13 and less than 15. What number am I thinking of?

 

Yes, 14!

 

You could try using number sentences too! I am thinking of a number that is more than 10 add 7 but less than 19. What is my number? Yes, it is 18!

 

Have a go with your family and see you can guess each other's numbers!

 

Literacy - Today in Literacy we are exploring characters through what they say, think and feel. Follow the link below for your next Honey and Trouble lesson!

 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-explore-character-through-what-they-do-say-think-and-feel-6gvp6e

 

You will need your story maps from the previous lesson for today's session!

 

 

Outdoor Learning - This afternoon at school we will be spending time in our forest school area. Therefore, this afternoon's activity is based on things we can do outside!

Creating A 'Y' Stick Loom

Tuesday 2nd March

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks! I hope you all had a brilliant Monday.

Please see today's learning below:

 

Maths - We are carrying on with really understanding our numbers up to 20. Today, our lesson will be focussing on numbers 11 - 20.

 

Take a look at the teaching slides below and have a go at the worksheets provided. You can decide if you want to complete more than 1 as an additional challenge!

PSHE - Today's PSHE activity is a talking and drawing activity with a friend or family member.

We are thinking about coming back to school next week. What it will be like and preparing for change. 

Read the social story with a family member. This story will help make you feel ready for the change and knowing what it will be like next week when you return to school.

 

Have a talk with a family member about what you are worried or concerned about. But also what you are looking forward to!

 

If you want to, draw a picture, or write about something that might be making you feel nervous, but also what you are really looking forward to about coming back to school.

 

 

 

 

REToday, we are thinking about the story about Jesus when he shows the importance of saying thank you.

 

You might do something to help someone else and they say, "thank you". How does it make you feel? 

When do you say thank you? Why is it important to always say thank you?

 

Check out the YouTube video below to learn about the story of the 10 men who were healed by Jesus and the one man who thanked him.

The Thankful Leper (Luke 17: 11-19)

So what are you thankful for? Who are you thankful for? Perhaps you could make a card and say thank you to someone special to you. Just as it did for Jesus, it will make someone feel very loved and appreciated!

Monday 1st March

 

Hello Sparrowhawks and happy March! We are getting closer and closer to spring with every day woohoo!

 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend in the sunshine! It is amazing what a bit of sunshine can do to make you feel happy! It is our last week of home learning. Can you believe it? I cannot wait to see everyone back together again!

I hope you also had the chance to get outside and enjoy some sunshine!

 

Please see today's learning below, have a wonderful Tuesday!

Maths - Today we are looking at number bonds to 20. Take a look at the teaching slides and have a go at the questions in your Power Math books. There are extension questions available also!

RE - We are focussing on stories from the Bible that tell us about what God is like.

      - Christians use the Bible to find out about what God is like and how he wants people to           live.

 

Look at the story of the Good Shepherd told in a wonderful way by two real Shepherds!

 

 

Good Shepherd Children's Story

Things to think about - What does this story tell us about what God is like? How do you think this makes Christians feel when they are worried or afraid?

 

Today's task - Listen to the song The Lord Is My Shepherd

We are going to learn the song by heart! Please see the lyrics below. Have fun and take your time! It may take a few days to remember the whole song!

 

 

 

 

Psalm 23, The Lord is my Shepherd.

The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want;
He makes me lie in pastures green.
He leads me by the still, still waters,
His goodness restores my soul.

 

He guides my ways in righteousness,
And He anoints my head with oil,
And my cup, it overflows with joy,
I feast on His pure delights.

 

And though I walk the darkest path,
I will not fear the evil one,
For You are with me, and Your rod and staff
Are the comfort I need to know.

 

And I will trust in You alone,
And I will trust in You alone,
For Your endless mercy follows me,
Your goodness will lead me home.

PSHE - Today we are thinking about what we can do when we feel like giving up. Read the story The Hope - O - Potamus with a grown up and think about how we can keep trying when we find something hard, and how we can help others to not give up!

Literacy

 

It is Monday! Which means we are going to be writing sentences about what we got up to at the weekend today!

 

Today's challenge:

Can you use an exclamation mark?

 

We use exclamation marks to exclaim something. This could be to:

 

  • Show emotion, the intensity of emotion.
  • Make an order or a command.
  • Show emphasis, if you really want to make a point about something.

 

Check out BBC Bitesize that helps explain to us what this punctuation is and why we use it.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z8x6cj6/articles/z3dcmsg

 

Quick tip!

Remember - when using an exclamation mark, the full stop is already there, so we do not need to add another one. 

Make an Astronaut helmet fit for space travel!

With Beegu safely back on her home planet (largely thanks to our brilliant lost posters), today we are going to write some postcards to her!

 

In the letter from Beegu's parents, they wanted to learn more about our planet. Perhaps in your postcard, you could describe our amazing planet to them?

 

Suggestions for things you could include:

 

  • The country you live in, what is it called? What is it like?
  • The weather - Seasons, night and day, what the weather is like now.
  • Food - What kind of food do we eat? What is your favourite?
  • Activities - What to we like to do for fun? Beegu loved playing games in the playground! What are your favourite games?

If there is something else you want to tell Beegu, please do!

 

Maybe you can ask Beegu a question, so she can reply and tell you about her planet!

 

I have included different postcards for you to choose from. Some have more lines for you to write on,  some are partly annotated to help get you started and there is a blank option for you to use if you would prefer! I have also included a word mat to help provide inspiration and spelling support! Have fun!

Science - Measuring Rainfall

 

This week in Science we are thinking about the wonderful weather that is...rain!

Listen to the video of rainfall and have a think about the following:

 

What can you hear?

What does it remind you of?

How does it make you feel?

What can you do to prepare for rainy weather?

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KngBCw6UKWU

 

Today we will focus on rain and measuring how much rain falls in a week.

Below are instructions to make your very own rain gauge. This will help us know how much rain falls in a week where we live. We will measure the amount that falls using millilitres (ml).

 

Before you measure your rainfall, take a look at the worksheet. Can you first see if you can estimate (guess) how much rain may fall in a week? How could you make a good estimate?

 

Let me know how you get one and we will look at our rain gauges again next week to see how much rain we have collected!

 

 

 

Tuesday 2nd February

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks! I hope you all had a great Monday and it was lovely to see you during our Zoom sessions!

 

Thank you also to everyone who has connected with me on ClassDojo! If you did not receive an invite code please do let me know. 

 

Please see today's learning below!

Maths - Today we are looking at one more and one less. We have practiced this before, but this time we will be going up to 20! Follow the teaching slides if you cannot make our Zoom session, and start on page.145. I also have an extension activity and a fun craft activity to help you with your counting!

Homemade Bead Strings - Bead Strings are a great way to help us with our counting! Why not make your own? All you need is some string and 20 of something to thread with. You could use beads, pasta, or cut up straws!

Literacy

 

In class this week, we are looking at the split digraph a-e, which makes the sound of the letter name for 'a'.

 

Your challenge today is to see how many sentences you can write using some words with the a-e sound?

 

Below I have included some words with this sound, see what you can create!

 

mate,date,name,same,shake,cake,make,lake,wake.

 

Try to write 3 sentences and see how you get on! Can you think of any other words with the a-e sound?

 

RE

 

Today in RE we are thinking about loss. Have you ever lost anything? How did you feel when you knew it was lost? How did you feel when you found it again? 

 

Jesus told three stories one after the other about things that were lost and found. We are looking at all three over the course of the next 2 weeks. Today we are focussing on one, the Lost Sheep.

 

Take a look at this clip:

http://request.org.uk/restart/2014/12/30/story-time-the-lost-coin-and-the-lost-sheep/

 

What do you think Jesus meant by these parables (stories)?

 

How do these stories make you feel?

 

This animation tells the story of the Lost Sheep without words:

Literacy

 

It is Monday! Which means I want to know all about what you got up to at the weekend! Write at least three sentences using:

 

Capital Letter

Full Stop

Finger Spaces

Verb (doing word)

 

This week, maybe you could try to include a question? What question would you ask? Remember, at the end of a question we use a question mark ( ? ) not a full stop ( . ).

History - Neil Armstrong has just landed from his incredible mission, where he became the first man on the moon! Imagine, you have the opportunity to meet Neil Armstrong in real life! You get to ask him 5 questions. What 5 questions would you ask him? Remember, when we finish a question, we do not use a full stop like we do when writing sentences, we use a question mark! ( ? )

Friday 29th January

 

Happy Friday Sparrowhawks! Woo hoo! We have worked so hard this week! Once again, I am blown away by each and every one of you, for always trying your best. Thank you!

 

It is our second 'Follow our Fascination Friday!' Where will it lead you today? You might want to learn about an animal? Or a country! Maybe you want to explore different art mediums or cooking! You can show what you have learnt in any way you wish. Maybe you could create a fact file, a poster, a recipe, tell a story, film something! It is totally up to you and I cannot wait to see where it leads you!

 

I will include daily Maths and Literacy as always. I have also posted some fun Art inspiration for the afternoon to get our creative brains flowing! Have a great Friday!

Maths - Today, we are learning to understand numbers more than 10, by learning about tens, and ones. Please look at the teaching slides if you cannot join me for our Zoom session. I have also included some extention work to get extra practice!

Literacy

 

The optional idea for Literacy today:

 

Now we have finished reading Beegu, and have been learning about the man who landed on the moon, why don't we create our own space-themed story?

 

But, let's do it a little differently. 

 

Start by drawing your story out with a pencil, then add colour with paint or colouring pencils. Finish off by telling your story verbally to your family! Maybe you could video it and send it to me too!

 

Inspiration below to help you:

 

Things to think about:

Characters - Who is in your story?

Setting      - Where does your story take place?

Plot           -  What happens in your story?

 

Art Activity Inspiration!

 

Thursday 28th January 

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks! I hope you are feeling great today! Well done for all your hard work yesterday, and thank you for sending me your photos, I love seeing what you have been up to! 

 

Please see below today's learning. But first, let's celebrate yesterday's learning!

Maths - Today we start our new unit! Counting and Writing Numbers to 20. I have included the teaching slides and some extention work for this lesson. I have also added an additional video from White Rose if you would like to have more practice!

Count forwards and backwards and write numbers to 20

Literacy

 

Following on from exploring emotive language and adjectives to describe how Beegu is feeling, today, we are going to write our very own poetry! Please watch the video for the next part of our story, and an explanation of your poetry challenge!

 

Feel free to write as much as you would like to. And don't forget to send me photos of your lovely work!

Wednesday 27th January

 

Happy Wednesday Sparrowhawks! Halfway through the week! Well done for all your hard work so far. Please see today's learning below:

Maths - Following on from our end of unit session yesterday I think it will be super helpful for us to compare our 2D & 3D together, so we really get to know the differences between 2D and 3D. Today's Zoom session will not have slides as it will be a practical session. But I have uploaded some activites for us to do!

Literacy

 

Today we are thinking about how the author of Beegu shows emotion through pictures and emotive language. 

 

Take a look at Task 1. Look at the picture and words. Think about how Beegu is feeling. Can you use adjectives to describe this?

 

Then take a look at the next two pages. The first page shows Beegu in the middle, the next page shows emotive adjectives. From looking at the first picture, what emotions do you think relates to Beegu the most?

 

Cut out the words and stick the ones you think relate the most to Beegu, closer to her. The words that you think do not relate, stick further away.

 

Are some words not relevant at all? Why not?

 

Complete the task again with Task 2. Send a picture of your work once you have completed it!

 

What differences do you notice? 

 

 

Science/Geography

 

As we are doing weather in Science and climates in Geography this term, I thought this week we would join them together!

As you have been getting to know the 7 continents in the world last week and is it the Big Garden Birdwatch, this week we are going to use what we know and learn about the migration of an amazing bird, the Swallow!

 

Watch the Youtube clip below to see the migratory route a Swallow takes every winter and complete the sheet provided. If you would like to showcase what you have learnt, or research anything else about a Swallow's migration, feel free to create a poster or another media to show me!

Today is creation day! After visualising what Beegu's home planet might look like, now you can create it!

 

Use Beegu as inspiration to create a whole new world. 

You can use any art medium you would like to, I have provided some inspiration below to help you get started!

 

 

 

 

Geography

 

We have been monitoring the weather where we live for a little while now. What have you noticed? What has the weather been like?

 (I have definitely noticed there has been A LOT of rain...)

 

Is this what the weather is like everywhere in the world? If not, why?

We are now going to start looking beyond the weather where we live and think about the weather in different continents. 

Wait....what is a continent? Let's start there today.

 

Below I have posted a map of the world showing the 7 continents. Your mission today is to learn what continents are and name all 7 of them! I have also included some resources to help you learn the 7 continents of the world!

 

Extra - Have you experienced the weather in a different continent? If so, what was it like? Was it different from the UK? You can document your thoughts by writing about a holiday you have been on, or maybe you could video yourself and tell me all about it! Have fun explorers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 20th January 

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks. We are halfway through the week! Happy Wednesday to you all! I hope you had a great day of learning yesterday.

Literacy - Today is the introduction of a 2 day task - continuing with our lovely book, Beegu. Watch the video to hear more of our story. Then, I have attached the task as a document for you to read through. Start with the writing task today and we will start the art section tomorrow.

Science

 

Today in Science we are going to be thinking about daytime and night-time. 

 

Have you ever noticed that is it darker for longer in the winter, and lighter for longer in the summer? Why is this do you think?

 

Check out the videos below to learn more about why we have day and night, before completing today's task:

 

 

Why We Have Seasons

A great way to experience how the Earth orbits around the sun, is by experimenting with shadows!

 

Today you're going to conduct an experiment on using shadows and making your own shadow sculptures!

 

You will need:

A torch or lamp (if there is no sunshine!)

Materials to create your sculpture

Paper and pencil. 

 

Experiment:

  • Create a sculpture of your choice - the more interesting the shape the better! I will add some inspiration below.
  • Place your sculpture on some paper and shine a light on it. Can you see a shadow?
  • Draw around the shadow, then move your light to shine on your sculpture from a different angle.

 

What do you notice? Does your shadow stay the same? Or does it change? Think about why.

This helps us understand how our Earth spins, and orbits around the sun, which provides the biggest shadow of all, night time!

 

Do send in your pictures of your sculptures and drawings!

Tuesday 19th January

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks,

 

Happy Tuesday! Well done for amazing work yesterday, you are all working so hard already! Go team Awesomehawks.

Your task for today is to go on a 3D shape hunt! What 3D shapes can you find in your home? How can you prove which 3D shape they are? Take pictures and show me how many you can find!

Literacy

Every Monday we are going to practice our sentence writing by writing about what we got up to at the weekend. 

(Also, I am very nosy and want to know all the fun things you have been doing!)

 

Please try to write at least 2 sentences. Your sentences must include:

 

A capital letter

A full stop

Finger spaces

 

Can you include an adjective (describing word) and a verb (doing word)? Maybe you can also use a noun (name of a person, place or thing)?

 

I will use my weekend as an example:

 

This weekend I walked in the woods with my friend Beka.

On Sunday I cooked some soup and made a delicious apple crumble.

 

Spellings

 

Spellings have been updated on SpellingShed and can also be found below. You have your assigned words on the SpellingShed site, however as there is no formal spelling test, you can also practice whichever spellings you would like to as I have posted them below:

History - Today in History we are learning more facts about the amazing Neil Armstrong. We are also using time lines to show we know when significant moments happend. Your task is to go through the slides provided, then cut and stick Neil's time line moments in the correct order. This is a chance to think about why we use timelines and how they are helpful.

Friday 15th January

 

Happy Friday Sparrowhawks. We did it, we made it through our first official week of online learning. I am so amazingly proud of each and every one of you for working so hard. We have certainly earned a restful weekend!

 

Today's learning is below.  Just a few little tasks for the morning, then I have suggestions for fun activities this afternoon. 

 

But first, it is show off learning time!

Maths - Today marks the end of our unit on subtraction. The teaching slides double up as today's work. It goes through different questions that cover all the different things we have covered.

Literacy

 

Well done for creating such detailed 'Lost' posters! Hopefully, they will help make sure Beegu is found safe and sound. 

 

One of the things we have talked about in class is how lonely Beegu might be feeling. So today, your task is to design and create your very own alien to be a friend for Beegu.

 

Today it is up to you how you make your alien. You could draw, paint or make your alien out of different materials. 

 

Things to think about:

 

What is your alien going to look like?

What would they feel like? Would they have fur? Or scales? 

Would they have arms and legs like humans? Or would they look completely different?

 

Your main task today with this is...to have fun, and get creative!

Spellings

 

We would normally practice our spellings together today! Why don't you practice them at home and show me your scores?

Thursday 14th January

 

Good Morning Awesomehawks! It was so lovely seeing you yesterday and once again, I am so impressed with how hard you are all working. I just want to take this moment to thank you all for being so AWESOME.  We are Awesomehawks after all, so it is no surprise. laugh

Beegu's parents have got in touch and said that they need our help! They are very worried about Beegu as she is lost and they cannot find her. They have asked us to make some 'Lost' posters to help with the search!

 

Your task today:

On the poster template provided draw Beegu to show people what she looks like.

Use adjectives in a sentence to describe Beegu to help others find her. 

 

For example, Beegu has yellow fur.

 

Check your sentences have capital letters and full stops!

I think everyone can start with 2 sentences, but do write more if you can!

 

Can you discover more interesting adjectives to make your writing more descriptive?

Please send me pictures of your fabulous writing!

Good Morning Sparrowhawks! Well, this is not quite the start to the new year that we were hoping for, but we are Awesomehawks! That means we can get through this tricky time together.

I hope you all had a lovely break over Christmas and New Year and are refreshed and well-rested.

 

I really look forward to catching up with you all on our Friday Zoom session. This will allow us to talk through how our learning will look moving forward. 

For today, I have posted the work below. This is for you to work through as best as you can today. Do not feel pressured to complete everything. Aim to complete maths, literacy and one phonics video (which is available after 9:30 every day). 

 

Have a lovely day! And remember to get out and enjoy the fresh air! It is certainly getting chilly now!

Tuesday 5th January 2021

Hello Awesomehawks! We hope you all have had a magical Christmas and a lovely New Year. It is officially 2021, how exciting!

With a new year comes lots of new amazing things to learn and explore, so let’s have a look at what we will be doing this term!

 

Literacy

 

This term in Literacy, our topic is...wait for it…SPACE! We will be reading a wonderful story about a special creature called Beegu. We are going to explore this book using our amazing writing, art and drama skills, so we cannot wait to get started!

 

Let’s get inspired!

 

 If you could create your very own alien, what would it look like? What would it feel, sound and act like? Where would it live?

 

 

We are lucky enough to have access to some super daily online RWI lessons to help with our sounds and reading!

The first YouTube lesson is up today at 9:30. Below is the link to the YouTube channel and a download of the daily lesson schedule. Each video is up for 24 hours so if 9:30 does not suit, then you can watch the videos at a time that suits you!

 

https://www.youtube.com/c/RuthMiskinTrainingEdu/videos

 

 

 

Maths

 

We are beginning the term by refreshing our brains with some subtraction and addition! If you want to do some extra practice at home that would be AMAZING! Of course, daily Numbots for 10 minutes is brilliant, but if you want more, I have included some extra resources below to help you get settled back in this week, have a look and do use them if they are helpful!

 

After our recap on addition and subtraction, we will be moving on and learning all about shapes!

 

Let’s get inspired!

 

What shapes do you know? How do you know what each shape is? What characteristics do they have to help you know? How many shapes can you find at home?

 

Spellings

 

New spellings are now available to practice! There will be no spelling test this Friday as we only have 3 days back at school, so this means you have extra time to practice your spellings for next Friday!

 

Let’s get inspired!

 

If you know them all off by heart, here’s a challenge! Can you write a sentence using a word from your list of spellings?

Science

 

This term we are exploring weather and seasons! What different weather types are there? How can we tell what the weather will be in the future? We will also be exploring seasons!

 

Let’s get inspired!

Can you investigate how we can forecast the weather? Why is it important that we know what the weather will be like? What is your favourite type of weather and why?

 

Geography

 

Linking with our Science topic, in Geography we will be exploring climates around the world!

 

Let’s get inspired!

 

What can you remember about our discussion about climate before the Christmas holidays? What climate would Mister P live in? How do you know? Why would Mister P not like to live in a hot climate?

 

We will be incorporating Art, Drama, Music and DT with our topic this term, and I will include all our lovely photos and videos of what we create on this page!

 

We cannot wait to see you on Wednesday! Let’s start the term off with a bang!

Monday 7th December 

 

Good morning Sparrowhawks! smiley

 

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! 

 

We are so proud of all the hard work you have been doing!

 

Please check out the learning for this week below. There is no pressure to complete all of this, they are purely suggestions for fun activities to complete at home.

 

Keep completing your 10 minutes of Numbots and SpellingShed every day!

If you need any help with anything do let me know, I will be happy to help.

 

Literacy:

 

This week we are learning the story of Monty the penguin. Watch the clip below to learn his story.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rJ86fLF71I

 

 

To start with this week we are thinking about feelings and emotions. Watch the clip again and think about what emotions you think this penguin is feeling throughout the video. 

 

Things to think about:

Why do you think Monty feels the way he does?

What shows you this in the video?

How does Monty feel when he receives his present?

 

Draw your own Monty and write around him the different emotions you feel he was feeling. Can you explain why?

 

 

Maths:

Keep going with your Numbots every day! 10 minutes a day is great practice!

 

For extra more focused maths practice, this week we are continuing to look at subtraction.

Follow the daily WhiteRose lessons:

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/week-8-number-addition-subtraction/

 

Phonics:

Can you match the sound with the picture? Help stop the dragon getting to the castle!

http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/phase-2-initial-sound-game-1.html

 

History:

We are looking at toys that were used in Roman times and are still used today! It is amazing how many toys we play with today that were invented a very long time ago!

Check out the video and look out for toys that you use today:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z7sygk7

Think together:

When were the Romans around?

What toys did they have that we have today?

What toys did they have that we no longer have?

What has surprised you?

Your task:

To pick a toy to research and find out:

  1. When was it invented?
  2. What is it made of?
  3. Has it changed over time?
  4. If so, how?

Create a poster about your chosen toy – you could draw your toy or cut and stick a picture, and write about the things you have discovered!

 

Geography:

This week we are looking at climate and weather in the Arctic.

Firstly, what is meant by climate? What is meant by weather? Are they different? If so, how?

Take a look at the resources below to find out more about climate and weather. What will you discover about the climate and weather of the Arctic?

You might want to think about what animals live there, or what plants are best suited to grow there?

 

Showcase your findings anyway you would like to. You could draw a picture, create a leaflet or poster, or video your findings! Be creative and follow your fascination!

Science:

This week we are looking at habitats.

Check out the video to learn more:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/z3sr4wx

Things to think about:

  1. What is a habitat?
  2. What animals live in a polar habitat?
  3. How do animals and plants survive?

Showcase what you have learnt in a way you would like!

Monday 30th November

 

Good morning Sparrowhawks and happy Monday! I hope you had a very restful and fun weekend.

 

We had an amazing week of learning last week, both in the classroom and at home. We are so impressed with all your hard work, well done!

 

 

Look at our amazing learning!

This weeks learning:

 

Spellings:

 

Spelling Shed has been updated with this week's new spellings! 

 

English:

 

This week we are learning about instructions, what they are and how they help us. Firstly, take a look at the link below that helps explain how to write instructions:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2189sv8Bvy4

 

As we have been learning about Polar Bears, we are going help a Polar Bear by writing instructions to make a perfect home.

 

What to think about:

What will a Polar Bear need to eat?

Where does a Polar Bear like to live?

What temperature is ideal for a Polar Bear?

 

Your challenge is to create instructions to build the ideal home for a Polar Bear! Remember to use verbs (doing words) to help people to know what to do!

 

Maths:

 

This week we are starting to look at problem-solving using addition and subtraction. Follow the link for White Rose Home Learning.

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/week-8-number-addition-subtraction/ 

 

Optional Further Activities:

 

History:

 

This week we are comparing older and newer toys. Pick your favourite toy or game, and compare that toy with a toy your grown-ups know or have played with.

 

What have you noticed?

When was your toy invented?

What is it made of?

How do you know your toy is newer? 

 

Create a poster for your toy and your grown-ups toy, comparing the differences and similarities! 

 

Science:

 

Carry on with your Arctic research, this week maybe think about the similarities between the Arctic and Antarctica? Are they similar? Are they different? If so, how?

 

Geography:

 

Where is the Arctic and Antarctica? Can you locate these places on a map? Have an explore on google earth to learn more!

 

https://earth.google.com/web/

 

Cannot wait to see what you learn!

Wednesday 25th November

 

Hello Sparrowhawks! Happy Wednesday! 

 

I have loved seeing all the amazing learning we have been doing this week, in the classroom and at home! Do keep sending me your lovely pictures of all your hard work. 

 

In History this week we are looking at a specific toy that has been around for a very long time! Lego! (Ask your grown-ups, I bet they played with Lego when they were your age!) The history of Lego is very interesting, and this week we are using it to understand what time-lines are and how they help us know when things happened. Find the PowerPoint below:

 

 

In Science, we have followed our fascination as we have so loved reading 'Me and Mister P' which is all about a Polar Bear that turns up out of the blue in Arthur's life?!

 

We wanted to learn more about Polar Bears and where they live! This week we are looking at the Arctic and becoming science researchers to find out all we can.

 

Check out the PowerPoint below for activities to get stuck in to!

In maths this week, we are focussing on addition, making number bonds and finding addition facts!

 

Follow the link to White Rose Home learning - Week 7 - Addition. We can start on the second lesson (adding more) and work through one of these every day.

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/week-7-number-addition-subtraction/

 

Keep going with your Numbots too!

 

Have a wonderful day, and I will be updating our page again on Friday. Do get in touch if you have any questions.

 

Miss Digance

Monday 23rd November

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks!

 

We hope you had a lovely restful weekend. For those of us who are currently taking some time learning from home, please see below the learning for this week:

 

English:

 

 

Maths:

 

Please do 10 mintues of Numberbots every day. 

 

This week we are looking at finding number bonds to 10. A great way to practice this at home is to create your own game of bowling! Using materials to make 10 skittles, how many fall down? How many are left? How many ways can you make number sentences showing 10?

 

If that is too easy, try it with 20!

I will be adding topic resources throughout the week so do look out for extra activities.

 

In the mean time, follow your fascination and pick something to learn about that really interests you! I would love to see what you come up with!

Friday 16th October 

Starting from next week we will be uploading some additional resources to our page every week to support learning at home, including spellings, Maths, English and humanities. 

 

We will also be sharing what we are up to in the classroom so everyone at home can share in the fun and successes!

We have been very busy bees this term! We have all been learning so much and we are so proud of everyone for working so incredibly hard!

Let's have a look back at our successes so far:

 

Friday 17th July 2020 - Last day of school!

 

Hello Hawks!!  WE HAVE DONE IT!  We have completed Year 1!  I hope you have had a brilliant year 1, you have all been amazing and I have really enjoyed teaching you all both in school and through your home learning! 

I hope you have a great summer and get to do lots of fun activities! 

Good luck in Year 2, I know you are all going to be amazing :)

 

Love, 

 

Miss Currant :) 

A brilliant memory jar!

Wednesday 15th July 2020

Good morning Hawks! 

 

I hope you are enjoying your time at home with your families! 

There is no extra science task today :) Just keep on going with the learning plan and enjoy your last week of term :) 

 

Miss Currant 

 

 

Monday 13th July 2020

Good morning Hawks! 

 

Welcome to your last week of Year 1! I hope you have all had brilliant weekends and are ready for your last week! 

 

This weeks learning is all about going into Year 2 and thinking about what you are excited about for next year and all the achievements you have made for this year. There is only 1 task per day and 1 maths task per day to make your last week a little easier and give you more time for fun activities with your families and grown ups. 

 

I have put the learning plan and maths plan (with the powerpoint) on the website as usual! 

Enjoy your last week! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

What a brilliant Solar system poster from Hannah! Well done! You have drawn the planets so beautifully!

Friday 10th July 2020

Good morning Hawks!

 

Your art task today is to make a 3D model of your favourite planet! This could be done using paper mache if you would like or you could draw on a balloon or you could just cover a ball with paper and draw on that!

 

I wonder if as the class we could make the whole solar system?

 

Send in your photos of your planets!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant space writing from Danny! Well done Danny!

Wednesday 8th July 2020

Good morning Hawks!

 

Your science task is a half science and half writing one today!

I wonder if you could come up with your own pneumonic to remember the order of the planets.

 

My        Mercury

Very      Venus

Easy      Earth

Method    Mars

Just       Jupiter

Speeds    Saturn

Up        Uranus

Naming    Neptune

Planets    Pluto

 

This is the one that I always use but I wonder if you could come up with a more fun one! First you will have to remember or look up the correct order of the planets and then go from there! Your adults could help you if you need it :) 

 

Send in your pneumonic and we will see which ones we can remember.

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant home learning from Danny and even a trip to the park! Very lucky!

Monday 6th July 2020 

Good morning Hawks! 

 

I hope you have had a good weekend and didn't get blown away in all the wind we had! Hopefully this week will be nice and sunny and we can all get outside! 

 

This weeks learning is all about Space! We have learnt a bit about space before so I wonder how much you will remember and impress your adults with your astronaut knowledge. 

 

I hope you enjoy your learning this week! Keep sending in the fabulous photos of your home learning! 

 

Miss Currant :)

We have a fossil hunter amongst us and they look like they were very successful!

Evie has been doing some brilliant musical home learning this week! Well done!

Friday 3rd July 2020

Good morning Hawks,

 

I hope you have enjoyed your music topic so far this week. This weeks art task is to make a musical instrument out of recycling from your house. You could use wool and cardboard to make a guitar, you could use lentils and a bottle to make a shaker or try and make a drum with a pot and some material.

Make up a tune to play on your instrument and send either a photo or a video of you and your instrument into school to share with your friends! 

 

I look forward to seeing what you create!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Great home learning Danny! Well done! I love your new collection of instruments!

Super dancing Loki! You can jump so high!

Great home learning Harriett! I wonder if you will ever learn the french horn?

Joshua has been busy with his home learning and has even lost his first tooth!

Wednesday 1st July 2020

Good morning Hawks, 

 

Happy 1st of July! We are in our last month of school. I hope you have enjoyed your music topic so far this week :) 

 

Your science today is another sorting activity to show your grown ups what super scientists you are! We are thinking about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores this week. 

Sort the animals into the right part of the venn diagram after reading the information about the animals :) 

 

Enjoy your science and keep sending in your photos of your work!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some great home learning from a couple of Hawks! A time whizz and a concert to attend!

Monday 29th June 2020 

Good morning Hawks, 

 

I hope you have had a great weekend! What did you all get up to? Did anyone get caught in the rain? I did and I got very soggy! 

 

This weeks learning is all about music which is an exciting topic! I have uploaded the weekly learning plan and your power maths for you as usual. 

 

It is brilliant to hear from you all still and I love seeing the learning that you are doing at home! You are all doing really well and I can see that you are trying your best :) I know that Mrs Hillier will be very proud to have you all next year and see how hard you all work! 

 

Enjoy this weeks learning :) 

 

Miss Currant :) 

We have a new chef in Hawks class who has been cooking up a Chinese Feast!

Some superb art projects! Well done! Can anyone see what animal they have drawn?

Friday 26th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

For your art task today we are going to continue the theme of ‘Around the world’ and think about Australia. In Australia they have a specific type of art called aboriginal art where instead of painting with big brush strokes they use lots and lots of different coloured dots to make up one larger picture.

I have attached a PowerPoint for you to look through to learn more about the art and then you can have a go yourself. Draw a picture of an animal (you will have to make it quite big) and then paint that in and see how it comes out! 

 

Enjoy your arty afternoon!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Evie has been very busy with lots of learning! Well done Evie! Keep up the good work!

Someone in our class has a new kitten! He's very cute!

Brilliant maths work!

Super science! Well done!

Some brilliant home learning from Joshua! Well done, keep up the good work!

Wednesday 24th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

This week for your science we are going to be thinking about the structure of animals. Once again, we have done this before in Autumn term, but I would like you to show your grown-ups how much you can remember. Have a look through the PowerPoint with your grown-ups and then see if you can draw your own animal to label.

If you want a super challenge, then you can draw more than one animal with a different structure and label that too.

If you think that you will find drawing an animal too tricky then you can use the elephant labelling activity that I have attached instead 

 

Enjoy your science!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant fruit facts! Well done!

What a super fun extra activity! Very stretchy slimy!

Some lovely writing about a lovely place!

Monday 22nd June 2020

Good morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a brilliant weekend and are looking forward to all the sunshine we are going to have this week! Hopefully you will be able to get outside a little more this week! 

 

Your topic this week is 'Around the world' which gives us a chance to learn about our world a little more which is exciting! I have posted your weekly plan and power maths below. 

 

I hope you enjoy this topic and keep sending in pictures of your home learning! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some lovely art work here! Florence Nightingale would be proud of these lanterns!

Friday 19th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!


Seeing as we have been learning about Florence nightingale and other significant people I thought we could make something that Florence nightingale is famous for carrying around with her during her time helping others.

This week I would like you to make some paper lanterns. I have included some instructions on how to make them. You can either make 1 and then dress up like Florence nightingale and send in a picture of you or you could make lots and hang them up as decorations! It is up to you!

 

I hope you have fun making them!

 

Miss Currant :)

Resources:

Some super science! Well remembered!

Wednesday 17th June 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

For today’s science task I am seeing if you can remember when we did this back in Autumn term. We have looked at the different type of animals before and thought about why they belonged to each category.

Go through the PowerPoint with your grown-ups and see how many facts you can remember about each animal group. After wards see if you can sort the animals into the correct groups!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Great maths and even some friends to help you out with sharing! Well done!

Some brilliant writing! Well done!

Oh no Hawks! Look what has happened! Poor Hannah has broken her wrist but she tells me that she got to see the bones inside her arm which was pretty cool! I wonder if anyone could make a card for Hannah to make her feel better?

Monday 15th June 2020

Good morning Hawks! 

I hope you have had a brilliant weekend and have stayed dry in the rain! What did you do? I hope you are all still having fun with your families at home :) 

This weeks learning is all about significant people in our history. The people you will be learning about are key figures in our past and are very interesting! 

I hope you enjoy this historical project! I can't wait to see what is sent in! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

An amazing piece of rainforest artwork! Well Done Hannah!

Well done on your spellings Hawks! I have had a look and I can see lots of you are practising hard!

Friday 12th June 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

This week in Art we are going to think about a famous artist called Henri Rousseau. He did lots of paintings of Jungles and put his own unique style on creating them.

I have attached a PowerPoint for you to learn a little about him and also some of his pieces of art.

I would like you to try and recreate one of his pieces of art or make your own using his style of drawing!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Emilia has been busy doing an amazing rainforest project! Well done Emilia! This is great!

Wow! Look at these sock puppets! I would like to listen to a story with them!

Some great animal factfiles! Well done! These could be in Longleat!

These look like some really fun activities!

Wednesday 10th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

This week for your science task I would like you to make a seasons wheel. This means dividing something circular (it could be a paper plate or just a circle of paper that you have cut out) and divide it into 4 sections.

Each section represents one of the 4 seasons. You can write the seasons name in the section and also draw a picture of what a tree would look like in that season. If you would like an extra challenge you can also draw pictures of clothes that you would wear in that season and write a sentence on the back to describe either the tree or the clothes.

 

I hope you enjoy your science task and keep sending in your work!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Resources:

Brilliant topic work! You have looked closely at the different parts of the rainforest!

What a lot of animals and some brilliant writing!

Monday 8th June 2020 

Good morning Hawks! 

 

I hope you had a brilliant weekend and did lots of exciting things with your families! It was a little bit more rainy this weekend which was brilliant for the plants but hopefully it will get sunnier soon so we can all go outside again! 

 

This week for your learning you have a rainforest theme which is very exciting! The weekly plan is uploaded along with your power maths :) 

 

Any problems or questions please don't hesitate to email! I look forward to seeing all your rainforest activities! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Brilliant new olympic sports medals! Well done!

Someone in Hawks has been very busy cooking for their family! It looks very yummy!

Friday 5th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Your art task today is to create your own Olympic medal to go with your new olympic sport or to create a medal for someone in your family who deserves one. Will they be the same colours as usual medals (Bronze, Silver and Gold)? What picture will it have on the front? Will they be metal? Could you make one as well as design it?

 

I hope you have fun with this task today and have a brilliant weekend! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

 

Thursday 4th June 2020 

Hello Hawks! 

I have put these handwriting and number formation practice sheets up as an optional task for you to complete. We know in Hawks that is it very important to do your neatest handwriting and this means we have to practice. 

Please do not feel that you have to do these, they are very much an optional task. 

 

I hope you are all keeping well and keep sending in your brilliant work! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Well done for finding some 'or' words! These can be tricky to find!

Some powerful mathematicians have sent me their work! Well done Hawks!

Some super science! Well done!

Wednesday 3rd June 2020

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Today for your science task we are going to start thinking about the seasons. I have uploaded a powerpoint to get you thinking about the different seasons and a worksheet to fill in. You can either do the worksheet on Autumn (what was done in the powerpoint) or you can do it about the season we are in now, it is up to you. 

 

I hope you enjoy your science and keep sending in your fabulous work! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant topic activities sent in! Well done!

Good morning Hawks! 

I hope you have all had a brilliant half term and got up to lots of exciting things! I expect lots of you have been keeping cool because it has been very hot! If you would like to send in any pictures of your half term then please do. I would love to see what you got up to. I have been very busy planting new trees, making things out of elderflower and starting lots of projects with recycled wood! 

 

This week for our learning we have a sports theme to keep us active during the time we are away from school. The weekly plan has been uploaded and so has our power maths. 

I am going to be in school with some of the children in the daytime so might not be able to reply to your emails straight away but I will do my best to reply quickly and if not I will reply to them at the end of the day. 

 

I hope you enjoy this weeks learning and I look forward to hearing from you!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some great rainbow weaving fish! Well done!

Friday 22nd May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks,

 

I hope you have had a good week so far! I have really enjoyed seeing all the pictures of your home learning! You are look like you are working really hard and you should be very proud of yourselves!

 

For your art task today I thought we could continue on the ‘Under the Sea’ theme and make some weaved rainbow fish. You can use anything to weave into your fish, it could be coloured paper, wool, ribbon, pipe cleaners, anything that you can bend to weave it in!

 

I have attached some pictures and instructions on how to make them. I hope you enjoy your art task and have a lovely weekend in the brilliant sunshine!

 

Miss Currant :)

Under the Sea writing! Well done guys! These are brilliant!

Super maths! Well done!

Extra home learning! Well done guys! You look like you are doing some brilliant extra tasks at home!

Some super science! Good work!

Wednesday 20th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Today for Science I have 2 different activities for you. One of them is to think about trees again but this time to think about the different parts of a tree.

I have uploaded a cut and stick for you to do but if you don’t want to do it this way, you can always look at the labels that I have provided and make your own big versions of them and stick them on a real tree that you could find in your garden or out on a walk!

 

The second activity is a little quiz to see what you can remember about our learning from the past few weeks. You do not have to do this if you don’t want to and you do not have to do it independently. Your adults could read you the questions and you could talk about the answers together. Some of them are matching activities and I know that all of Hawks like matching activities and we are very good at them!

 

I hope you are having a good week and enjoying your Under the Sea learning! You have sent in some brilliant work so far! Well done! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant reading tasks! Well done!

Some brilliant junk modelling inventions as part of Mrs Butt's challenge have been sent in! Well done guys!

Under the Sea learning!

Monday 18th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you enjoyed your weekend! What did you get up to? I went on a bike ride, played some rugby and frisbee and re-planted some of my plants :) I am trying to grow some new plants and will post pictures of them if they work! 

 

This week for your learning you have an ‘Under the Sea’ theme. The weekly plan is uploaded as usual but looks slightly different this week. We have changed it so it is slightly more structured and lays out what you should do for each day for the core subjects.

In the maths boxes there are 2 tasks for each day. The power maths is the more important of the two but if you are feeling super sonic then you can have a go at the second activity!

 

The afternoons still run as usual:

Monday and Tuesday – Pick a topic activity from the plan

Wednesday – Science

Thursday – P.E.

Friday – Art/D.T.

 

I hope you enjoy your learning for the week and have fun with your grown ups :)

 

Miss Currant :)

Some brilliant baking has come in already! I wonder what everyone else is making?

Friday 15th May 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a lovely week this week and have had lots of fun looking at different foods!

 

For this weeks Art/D.T. project I would like you to continue thinking about food and make something with your families at home. You could bake, you could cook or you could simply help make dinner. Help to weigh out the ingredients and think about how each one is going to make the product better or what function it has in the cooking!

 

Send in pictures of what you make and we will share all the yummy foods that we have been making!

 

Have a brilliant weekend and enjoy going outside!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant tree rubbings sent in! Great work!

Wednesday 13th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

This week we aren’t going to think about flowers in science. We are going to think about trees! I am going to send you on a tree hunt when you are next on your walk!

 

We are going to think about 2 different types of trees: Evergreen and Deciduous. I have attached a video to explain the different to you and also 2 small posters. I would like you to go out on a walk and find 3 evergreen trees and 3 deciduous trees and take rubbings of them in the rubbings box on your worksheet. Make sure that you put the rubbing in the right column and after you have taken the rubbing you can identify what kind of tree it is and write it in the box. If you don’t know what type of tree it is I have attached a link to a tree ID app that you can use to help you identify it.

 

I hope you enjoy this tree hunt and finding different types of trees!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some extra activities that look very fun! What extra activities has everyone else been doing?

Great writing Hawks! Well done!

Wow! Lots of different food listed here and all sorted brilliantly! Well done!

Some brilliant maths being completed! Well done!

Joshua has been very busy this weekend! He did a virtual race challenge called to the moon and back where he had to do 20 of all the following sit ups, press ups, burpees, tuck jumps then ran 2 miles then all again when he got back! He must have worked very hard! Well done Joshua!

Monday 11th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you had a brilliant weekend and enjoyed VE day! What did you do on VE day? Did anyone celebrate and have a socially distant street party?

 

Here is your weekly plan for this week! This week we are thinking about Food (which is all very yummy).

 

This week I have also put up some guidance to help you with your PowerMaths books. This is what you would usually see in your text books before we started working and we would work through this together answering the questions to talk about methods to answers questions before doing them in our books.

The ‘Discover’ questions can be talked about together, thinking about how we can answer them and what information we used.

The ‘Share’ question usually tells us how the previous questions could be answered (providing clarification and consolidation to conversation that would have happened during the ‘Discover question’).

The ‘Think together’ question you can have a go at on your own and then discuss it with an adult after.

Please don’t feel like you have to complete the challenge question. Only try this if you feel ready to do it and understand all the other questions.

 

Please use this resource if it is helpful but if it is not then please don’t feel that you have to use it!

 

I hope you enjoy this weeks work and I will speak to you again on Wednesday! Keep sending in all your photos!

Mrs Butt's Challenge!!

Mrs Butt has come up with a challenge for you all which is very exciting! 

She has been thinking hard about how she can recycle as much as possible and help save the planet. 

Mrs Butt would like you to save as much recycling over the next couple of weeks and build something amazing with it! It could be a new toy, a robot, a tower or anything else you can think of! 

Please send us a picture of what you make and we can share it all with our friends!

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Today is a very special day! It is VE day today and it is the 75th anniversary of VE Day! To mark this special occasion, I have prepared some fun art and DT activities for you to do today!

 

I have attached a PowerPoint which will help you learn about VE day and why we celebrate it. After that, I have attached a variety of activities for you today so you can choose as many or as little to do as you would like!

 

I hope that you enjoy celebrating VE day and I can’t wait to see what you make! I am going to make some of my own decorations today and put them in my window for everyone to see!

VE Day

Just a note to say: I am aware that other teachers have posted VE day work for today. I will be posting VE day work for Hawks on Friday. If you are taking Friday as a bank holiday then please do not feel you have to complete this work! 

Henry, Alex and Betsy have been busy doing some planting! It's very exciting watching them grow!

I was very excited when I found an eggshell outside my front door! I thought I would share it with you. I wonder what sort of bird hatched out of it?

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a good week so far and are enjoying your work and time at home with your families!


Today for science we are going to be looking at flowers again but this time we are going to look at what makes up and flower and what flowers need to survive and grow. Usually I would have done some planting with you and we could watch our plants grow together. If you have the resources to do this at home then you can do so and watch your plant grow with your families! If not don’t worry, it isn’t necessary.

 

I have attached a power point and worksheet for you to do today. I would like you to be able to remember the labels and then write them on rather than just copy them on from the power point. As an extra challenge, could you also write on the function of each plant part underneath the label.

 

I have also attached a video and worksheet for what plants need to grow. Watch the video and then fill in the worksheet. If you can’t print out the worksheet, don’t worry! You could make a fact file on what you learnt from the video!

 

Have fun and I’m looking forward to seeing what you get up to!

Mrs. Butt has been busy thinking about her environment and helping out the rubbish men by labelling her bins! Luckily she has Fred the food waste to keep watch!
