Friday 27th March – Year 1

Hello, Chestnuts and Cherries! We hope you are ‘blossoming’ at home, enjoying the blue skies and hearing the birds sing. Well done for having a go at the home learning activities this week.

Activity 1- Exercise with Joe Wicks. However, if you are feeling a bit tired or achey today, you could stretch out and do some of the balances we did our PE lessons. Can you balance of 4 body parts? Can you balance of 3 body parts?  Can you balance of 2 body parts?  Try and be creative and try a few different balances for each challenge. *Make sure you stay safe and do it on the floor with a grown-up. You may want to try and do this outside if you can.

Activity 2- Phonics- See the video uploaded by Mrs Felstead.

Activity 3- Literacy- Can you read a part of the story about Flotsam and Jetsam who you thought about yesterday. Try to use your phonics to sound out and blend the sounds together. Can you think about what might happen when they meet the old man (who could be a fisherman) and the boy? You can talk about it or write it down as a story if you wish. See if you can practise reading the text all by yourself once you have read it with your grown-up so that you become independent.

Flotsam and Jetsam 3


Activity 4- Maths We have found some videos that you may want to watch about mass and weight. When you have watched the videos maybe you can look around your house and pretend your arms are scales. Can you pick up two things and compare them? Which is heavier/lighter? Can you use sentences to compare the objects, in the same way that we saw in the videos?  You could check on some scales in your house if you have some. You could compare different foods when you are helping with a meal.

Please just look at lessons 1, 2 and 3 today.

You may want to look at the activity sheets with questions to go with them if you have time.

Afternoon Activity

Listen to Mrs Worth’s story. Can you read or tell a story to someone in your house? Can you try to put expression into your voice and make it interesting for your listeners? You might even use noises as they did in Caterwaul Caper – but make sure they add interest to the story!

You may want to read it to your whole family or read/tell it to just someone else. If you are feeling really creative you may want to make up a story using your toys or draw pictures to accompany it!

Have fun!

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

    So only a couple of activities left to do then finished a week of home schooling, this could have been a lot harder if it wasn’t for the help of the Year 1 teachers. Thank you for making it achievable and fun. Grace has enjoyed every lesson and activity that has been set.

      Thank you so much for your kind comments. We have really enjoyed thinking of activities that are hopefully useful, fun and not too challenging. We welcome any comments from parents. Have a lovely weekend and well done!

    Thanks for letting us know. Mrs Felsted is experiencing a few technical difficulties but hopefully it will be on soon.
    If not, we will all look forward to it next week!
