Home Learning Tasks for The Wonderful Wolves
Good Morning everyone where did the sun go? As much as I like the sunshine I think the rain is much needed for the plants and flowers. Please remember to keep active even if you can’t get out and about due to the rain. Below you can find the home learning for today.
Phonics / GPS
In phonics this week we have been looking at the /oy/ sound.
How many different /ar/ words can you find in 2 minutes (remember this can be any of the spellings ‘ar’, ‘al’ or ‘a’) – can you explain what your chosen words mean?
Our collective worship value for today is RESPECT.
Can you explain to your grown-up what we know about respect and how we show each other respect at school? How do we make sure that we are all good bucket fillers? Noah showed great respect to God by following his instructions and keeping his animals safe. God used a rainbow as a sign to Noah that he was not going to send any more rain, now we use the rainbow as a sign of unity and hope all around the world. Can you draw your own rainbow and think about what you are hoping for?
For English today I have put a comprehension task into the files section on our class page of the school website – title Grannie Island Comprehension. For the first section, I would like you to write the correct answers as full sentences in your book. For section 2, write the statement number and then whether it is true, false or you can’t tell. For section 3, there are lots of sentences that are not in the correct order, can you re-write these in your book in the correct order so they tell the story.
The lovely weather seems to have gone away for a few days and we now have lots of rain. Rather than this being a bad thing ask your grown-up if you can put on some wellies and jump in the puddles.
The video for today can be found at https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ located in Week 2 under “Lesson 5 - Make arrays”. Enjoy watching the video, if at any point you do not understand feel free to watch the video again or pause it to ask your grown-ups for help. Then use your blue book to record the answers to the questions in the activity section.
Can you help prepare your own lunch? If you are having sandwiches can you make these yourself? Buttering the bread and adding the fillings you would like. If you are having a hot meal can you safely help your grown-up with the cooking?
Last week you planted your own bean or sunflower. This week one of the things I would like you to do is check to see if it has grown at all. Even if your plant hasn’t grown you can still write this as an entry into your plant diary (you can keep this on one page of your blue books).
The other thing I would like you to do is go on a wildflower hunt. I have added a file to the class page of the website called Wild Flower Hunt. Don’t worry if you can’t print this you can draw a table that is similar in your book. When you and your grown-ups go out for a daily walk, see if you can you find most or even all of the flowers. Were some of the flowers easier to find than others? You could even take some pictures of the ones you find to share with us.
Use the BBC nursery rhyme website (https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/nursery-rhymes-songs-index/zhwdgwx) to sing along with some of your favourite nursery rhymes. Ask the grown-ups at home about nursery rhymes they remember singing as a child are they on there too?
The story for today was chosen by my children. I asked them what story they thought you would all like to listen to and they chose The Little Pirates – click on the picture below to go to the story.
