In Badgers we work hard and learn together at the same time as having lots of fun!
Week Beginning 05.10.2020
Welcome to another week! Week beginning 5th October. Here is what we will be learning this week.
Phonics: We are learning the following new sounds: g o u l f b. Try adding these new sounds to the ones that we have already learnt and see what words you can come up with (s a t p i n ck e h r m d).
English: We are continuing to look at the story Once There Were Giants by Martin Waddell. This is the Youtube link to listen to the story at home (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STwCfjVajys) This week we will be thinking about the things that we used to do as a baby that we may not still do. Thank you for all the photos I have received so far, these are fabulous!
Maths: We are still looking at counting confidently up to 20 (both forwards and backwards) This week we will be looking at the new vocabulary more than, less than, fewer, greater and equal to. For some fun games to practice counting try the following websites https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/3-5-years/counting or https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/saucerSorter/.
Topic: We are looking at our wonderful world and seeing what autumnal things we can find. We will be labelling the human body. Have a look at the BBC Bitesize page introducing the Human Body (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z9yycdm). In Art we will be creating some artwork in the style of Arcimboldo using Fruit and Vegetables. Do an internet search for Arcimboldo fruit faces to give you some ideas. Take a photograph of your finished artwork. We will also be looking at how we can keep fit and healthy.
Reading- Keep using the Oxford Owls site to find books you can read together. The log in is pupil1234 and the password is year 1. All children have been read with in school today and books have been changed. Thank you all for your support with reading at home.
Week beginning 28.9.20
If your child is unable to be in school this week, please use these ideas to help them keep learning at home.
Maths-We are practising representing numbers to 10 in lots of different ways. Count groups of objects in your home (spoons, toys, tins.) Can you order them from smallest to biggest? Make a number line from 0-10 with some numbers missing. Ask your child to fill in the gaps. Make it trickier by including counting backwards. Have a look here for some fun games to try https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/3-5-years/counting or https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/saucerSorter/.
English-Write a sentence about yourself using the starter I am... Remember to use a full stop and capital letter. Listen to the story Once there were Giants here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STwCfjVajys. Retell the story in your own words. Talk about what you could do at different ages.
Phonics-This week we are learning the songs and actions for the sounds ck e h r m d with Jolly Phonics. You can find them at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvAYUvQUrGo. Try and use these sounds, and the ones from last week (s a t i p n) to write some words (e.g. spit, spin, cap, ink, pen, nest, deck, hint, rest, rat, him, den, sand etc).
Topic-We are thinking about the different stages of growth from babies to the elderly. Draw pictures of the people in your extended family, from youngest to oldest. Can you write anyone's age? Make some Arcimboldo art using vegetables and fruit you have at home. Do an internet search for Arcimboldo fruit faces to give you some ideas. Take a photograph of your finished artwork.
Reading-Keep using the Oxford Owls site to find books you can read together. The log in is pupil1234 and the password is year 1. https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/free-ebooks/
