Tuesday 31st March – Year 1

Dear everyone.

Well it’s a bit cooler this week, so perhaps not quite so much work outdoors, and we are all being safe and finding things to do indoors. We hope you are able to get out for a bit of a walk or a bike ride each day with your family. Has anyone met a neighbour that they didn’t know before March? I wonder if you can share some of your ‘good news’ stories with us?

Hopefully, you are enjoying our learning this week. Here’s what we are up to today.

Activity 1- PE You are welcome to carry on with Joe Wicks’ online lessons or you can perhaps create a simple dance to follow this music perhaps? (needs a link to music)


Activity 2- Phonics – see Mrs Felstead’s lesson

Activity 3- Maths

Can you explain why 26 is a larger number than 14? Think about yesterday’s maths session.

How many tens are in 26 and how many ones? What about 14?

Your sentence could be 26_is a larger number than 14 because 26 has 2 tens  and 6 ones  but 14  has 1 ten and  4 ones.

Can you explain why 31 is a larger number than 13?

Can you explain why 42 is a larger number than 24?

Can you explain why 89 is a smaller number than 98?

If you want to challenge yourself you could make up some more that you could try and do independently.

Break Make sure you have lots of water to drink and have a break. If there are clouds in the sky, just look at them very carefully and see if they are moving. Are there any that are in a funny shape? Or maybe the sky is very grey. Stop all the noise for a minute or two and just watch the clouds.

Activity 4- Literacy – Please an you carry on working on your leaflet or booklet today. I hope it is going well. You may still be doing your research and finding out some facts or you may be planning where each section may go. Remember, take your time as this can be done a little a day.

Can you lay the table all by yourself?

Activity 5- RE
We have been learning about Judaism in school and Mrs Elijah visited us with lots of amazing resources to explore the Jewish day of rest called Shabbat.
Can you be teachers to your grown-ups and try to remember anything that she told us about Shabbat? If you are finding it difficult remembering or your parents want to find out more, there is some information to help you. (The BBC videos are old but really informative. It might teach the children about traditions being around for a long time… actually thousands of years!)

    Grace had a look at the clouds and said that she could see a turtle. ?
    Also did you know that a Bottlenose Dolphin can jump up to 4.9 metres above the sea surface ?

    89 is smaller than 98 because 89 has 8 tens and 9 ones and 98 has 9 tens and 8 ones, if it has more tens it is bigger. (Florence’s maths sentence)

    Florence also added a new fact to her leaflet – Starfish communicate by sending chemical signals!
