Year 1

WELCOME

 to Yea1

Friday  3rd April

 

Good morning Year 1! I was really impressed with all the children who completed the R.E assessment yesterday. I have commented on each of your work. I’ve asked some you if you can do a little bit extra by labelling the picture (writing what you have drawn, for example if you drew a priest can you write priest next to him). Due to this being an assessment it MUST be completed, therefore these children must complete the assessment today;

Asiya, Alfie, Caileb, Chineye, Hamna, Jakub, Leonard, Mark, Talha, Noor and Umama.

 

The assessment from yesterday that must be completed today is;

R.E Due to having to finish the term of early, you will be completing your R.E assessment at home. This means parents that you must NOT help your child at all.

Your child must draw and label a picture of what happens the Parish Church gathers in Church. If your child says they don’t know ask them to think about Mass, who/what is there and what happens. Your child must draw the pictures of these things, label it and then write a sentence at the bottom of the page saying what we do when the Parish Church gather in Church.

Like I said, they must do this WITHOUT ANY HELP.  You must also send a picture of this into Purple Mash or attach it as a document and email it to the school office. Both options are available however you must send me a copy of it.

Remember your child’s work MUST be independent which means you can not help them in any way. It will not benefit them if you help in any way if you help them.

I also want to share some of the pictures I have received from everyone that brought a smile to my face over the past 2 weeks.

 

 

Photos that have made me smile

Your work today is

 

Maths – In your Home School book I want you to write out your number bonds to 10 and 20. These are 2 numbers that when added together make 10 or 20. Hexagons and Pentagons I’m challenging you to make number bonds to 20 with 3 numbers. For example; 9+4+7=20

 

English – It’s quiz time again. Read chapter 2 and answer the questions set about it. Good luck!

 

Science – On Purple Mash I have set you a game where you match the body parts with the 5 senses. We have discussed this in class so your child should be an expert.

 

As many of you are aware, On Sunday it is Palm Sunday. Today I want you to go into the garden and find a branch. If you can not do this then please draw a palm leaf, colour this and then cut it out. On Sunday Please put them on your window or door to celebrate Jesus. We may be physically isolated, but not separated. We are united as the Body of Christ.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTmbTuutBgg Watch this video and talk to your child about these questions.

- Where was Jesus travelling too?

- What animal did Jesus travel on? 

- Were the people happy to see Jesus?

- What did they wave when they saw Jesus?

- Why did they wave these when Jesus entered?  

 

 

I will be putting work on the website until Wednesday the 8th April. Sorry about the mistake in my last message.

 

Stay safe and God bless

Mrs Green

 

 

Thursday 2nd April

 

You have a very important R.E task to do today which must be completed and parents you must send a picture of this into school today! You can do this through Purple Mash or through the school office email address.

Take your pic of exercise today but make sure it wakes up your brain for todays work. I loved all the pictures I was sent yesterday of your R.E work and your English work. It was super. I will be posting some of your fabulous work tomorrow on our class page. 

 

Maths – I was so impressed with your math work from yesterday, nearly everyone got over 90%! Now we are doing to see if you can master this with calculations up to 20 with missing numbers. Just like yesterday, take your time and do not rush. Don’t forget how you worked these out yesterday.

 

English – In class we were reading the story The Last Wolf. In your Home School book I want you to draw a picture of a wolf and write sentences to describe what he looks like, what he likes to eat, where he lives and anything else important that you want to tell me about it. Don’t forget to write in full sentences, use capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, sitting your letters on the line and think about the size of your letters.

 

R.E – Due to having to finish the term of early, you will be completing your R.E assessment at home. This means parents that you must NOT help your child at all.

Your child must draw and label a picture of what happens the Parish Church gathers in Church. If your child says they don’t know ask them to think about Mass, who/what is there and what happens. Your child must draw the pictures of these things, label it and then write a sentence at the bottom of the page saying what we do when the Parish Church gather in Church.

Like I said, they must do this WITHOUT ANY HELP.  You must also send a picture of this into Purple Mash or attach it as a document and email it to the school office. Both options are available however you must send me a copy of it.

Remember your child’s work MUST be independent which means you can not help them in any way. It will not benefit them if you help in any way if you help them.

Wednesday 1st April

 

Good morning Year 1. I hope you are all enjoying your second week of working from home. I know it can be a little bit weird that you have to still do school work when you are at home but it you MUST continue to do all of the work I set for you. Most of you are doing really well with this and I loved reading your book reviews yesterday. I had added some books to the list of book the I must read 😊.

This morning why not try to learn some new dance moved from Oti Mabuse who was on Strictly Come Dancing! If you follow this link you will be able to learn a new dance

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC58aowNEXHHnflR_5YTtP4g

She is also holding a live Youtube dance lesson at 11:30 but you can find them all on the link above

Remember, keeeeep dancing!

 

Maths – missing number calculations to 10. Remember to use a hundred square to count and find your answer, counting on using your fingers or is there a number bond that you know? Please do not panic about the race. The most important thing is how well you do on these calculations. I’m not looking to see who got the fastest, i'm looking to see who got the most correct, so DO NOT RUSH! Take your time and answer them correctly.

 

English – Can you write a diary entry about your week at home. What have you been doing? What was your favourite part of the week? What did you do at the weekend? Have you played and fun games? Who was in your house? What exercise did you do? Have you done any baking/drawing/science experiments etc? Are you enjoying completing your learning at home? Start your diary entry with Dear Diary. Don’t forget that you are writing what you have been doing. Most importantly don’t forget capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and writing neatly on the line. Try to use the word ‘and’ to join 2 sentences together. Remember this is your child’s work so they must do the writing and sounding out of the words. You are there to support them but not do the writing for them or tell them how to spell every word.

You can send a picture of these in to me on Purple Mash by clicking on work (at the top of the page) – my work – new – upload and then clicking on the picture that you have taken. You will need to put the picture on your laptop before doing this. Even if you are struggling to put it on Purple Mash I still expect this to be in your Home Learning books.

 

Art – Today I want you to go outside and find something that God has made. Perhaps a tree or a flower. Draw this in your Home school book. You could use paint, felt tips, crayons or be extra creating and use collage. Write the date at the top of the page with the title God’s world.

 

Stay safe

Tuesday 31st March

Good morning Year 1. Who enjoyed Go Noodle yesterday? Take a pick this morning if you would like to do Go Noodle again or Joe Wicks. You could even do both! I hope you have all said your morning prayers , thanking God for keeping us safe.

I have been on Purple Mash and commented on your Science task from yesterday. I was especially proud of Jensen, Logan and Maliha for using the word transparent!  Also a well done to Ava , Mark, Asiya, Harry, Apola, Ella, Leonard, Logan, Emilia, Martin, Aleksander, Oliver and  Jake for getting 90% or above of the answers correct on their Math work. 

 

That being said, I am incredibly proud of all the children in Year 1 for completing their work every day. This is FANTASTIC and will really make a difference to your learning when you return to school. WELL DONE!

 

Maths – Your math task is on Purple Mash. I have reset some of the additions to 20 for some of you. See if you can beat your score from yesterday. I have set some addition to 100 for some other children. Take your time answering these. Use a 100 square if you need to. These have been set to your child’s level so please support them with finding the answer but do not tell it to them.

 

English – Today your task is to write a book review of your favourite book. Think about what happened in the story, why should someone else read it, who was the author? Remember that this is your child’s work and they must type it and spell out the words using their phonic skills.

 

R.E – I want you to watch this story of the Good Samaritan and answer the questions below in your Home School book.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSfm2xdKau4

 Where was the Jewish man travelling to?

Who was the first person to find him on the road and why didn’t he help him?

Who was the second person to find him on the road and why didn’t he help him?

Who was the third person to find him on the road and what did he do?

How could you be like the Samaritan?

 

Stay safe

Monday 30th March

 

I have been keeping track of who has been on Edshed and Purple Mash every day and completed all tasks set to them on that day. Because of this I am going to give these children 100 honey pots each on Ed Shed. These children are; Olaf, Aleksander, Mikolaj, Elliot, Oliver, Jensen, Martin and Maliha.

 

Let’s start the day a little differently, try some of these Go Noodle dance routines that we have done before in class

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAwOTEJXH-cOM0X5cnnZpkWxTtryDpv_

Copy the link into your web address bar and pick one of your favourites. Some of mine are Banana Banana Meatball, Dinosaur stomp and All I Eat is Pizza. 

 

Maths – I have put a game on Purple Mash with additions to 20. See how quick you can do these. See if you spot any number bonds!

 

English – Your task for today is to find your spelling group, write out your spellings in your Home School Book and then write them in sentences. Make sure they make sense!

Science – Recently in Science we have been discussing materials. What they look like, what they feel like and grouping these in different ways. I have set you a game on Purple Mash discussing the Materials.

 

Just a reminder that you must also compete on Ed Shed daily, complete all tasks on Purple Mash daily and read every day with an adult. Try to discuss the book, discuss the characters and discuss what you have just read.

 

Stay safe

Friday 27th March

Good morning Year 1. What a brilliant day to get our thinking caps on. I have looked and commented on all your written and art work from yesterday. I was especially impressed with Logan, Jake and Ava. The work you completed on the artist you picked was brilliant! I would tell exactly which artist you chose and who the picture was of. Big well done! Just to note, on the math work you wont need to save/hand this work in. I see who has been on the games and their scores.

 

As the sun is shining beautifully, I would love for you to go outside (in a safe area) and do some exercise. You could run in the garden, kick a ball, play catch with someone, play tennis or set an assault course for someone else to do.

 

English – I have set you a 2do on Purple mash (its through serial mash an app on there) to read chapter 1 of a book.  I want you to read the first chapter twice and then answer the quiz also on your 2dos on Purple Mash. Encourage your child to read the words and support them if they need help. Just like you do with their reading book. Some children will need no support with reading this and other will need a bit. Next week we will get chance to read chapter 2!

 

Maths – You did so well yesterday with one more and one less! Your challenge today is to now complete the game up to 100. Use a 100 square to help you if you are unsure.

 

R.E – As you know there are many key workers still out working. For example; nurses, doctors, delivery drivers, all hospital staff, postmen and women, shop workers. Draw a picture of one of these people and write a prayers saying thank you to God for all the help they are giving us during this unpredictable time. Please do this in your books Home School books and say this prayer tonight before you go to sleep.

 

I hope you have enjoyed your first week of working from home. It has been a big change for us all but seeing all of your hard work has really helped to put a smile on my face. Thank you. Stay safe over the weekend everybody.

 

God bless

Mrs Green

 

 

Thursday 25th March

 

Good morning Year 1. I was really impressed with the work handed in yesterday. I was especially impressed with Maliha’s alien description and Alfie’s seasonal tree picture. I have been told that some parents are wanting to contact me, if it is urgent please email the school email address and someone will respond shortly. I hope you are still exercising with Joe Wicks. I have seen a picture of Oliver on our St Marie’s Twitter exercising with his brother Milan. Keep it up boys!

 

Your work today is:

English – Your task today is to write a diary entry about what you did yesterday (Wednesday). Do this in your Home School book. Make sure you also write the date at the top of the page and write the title as Dear Diary. Remember you are writing what you have been doing. Don’t forget your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. I can’t wait to see these when you are back in school. Just a reminder that this is your child’s work. You are there to help but please encourage your child to sound out the words and use their phonics book for any sounds they are not sure on. This does not include any ‘tricky’ words that you can not sound out.

 

Maths – We have already learnt about on more and one less so let’s continue this with a game on Purple Mash. Use a 100 square if you are struggling. Remember one more means add one and one less means takeaway/subtract one.

 

Art – We have learnt about many famous people from the past. Now your challenge is to research a famous artist and decorate a face in the style of that artist on Purple Mash. Check your 2 Do’s. Try searching for Andy Warhol, Pablo Picaso or Georges Seurat for some inspiration. Don’t forget to write which artist you have used for inspiration.

 

On Ed Shed the current winners in each group are:

Blue group – Martin with 15,454,844

Green group – Jett with 3,978,186

Red group – Olaf with 2,955,076

I have given all 3 of you a 100 honey pots as a reward. All of the winners were boys. I think the girls need to step up their game!

 

You must complete ALL the work set every day. It is important that your child keeps up with their education and a keeps to a routine.

 

Stay safe and don’t forget to keep saying your prayers.

Mrs Green

Wednesday 25th March

 

I hope many of you tuned into Joe Wicks this morning and enjoyed the exercises that he had us all completing! I also saw that a lot more children had been on Ed Shed and Purple Mash yesterday. Remember to go on both Ed Shed and Purple Mash EVERYDAY to complete all of the tasks set. The tasks set go alongside reading your reading book everyday.

 

Maths: Your Maths work is set on Purple Mash. Keep up with the odd and even numbers. Remember it is the ones that tell you if a number is odd or even. Make a note of the odd and even numbers to use in your game on Purple Mash.

 

English: Read your phonics book to make sure you have remembered all of the sounds that you knew. I have also set a task on Purple Mash. This task is to describe an alien. This could have been an alien that Bob saw on the moon!  

 

Science: We have previously learnt about the 4 different seasons and how trees may look in them. On Purple Mash there is a seasonal picture for you to complete. You need to think about each season and how the tree would look. Don't forget to click Save As when you have done. 

 

You must complete all of the tasks I set you daily and I will check on both Ed Shed and Purple Mash. Keep safe.

 

Mrs Green

 

Tuesday 24th March

 

I hope you all enjoyed your tasks yesterday and are staying safe at home. Just a reminder, Joe Wicks is holding a live exercise class at 9:00 am for children all over the country. If you search for The Body Coach Joe Wicks you can join in too! I know I will be.

 

Maths – I would like you to look back at your multiples of 2, 5 and 10 from yesterday and write all of the even numbers that you wrote in one list and all the odd numbers in another. Don’t forget an even number is a number you can share equally and is always a multiple of 2!  In addition to this, I have set a game to identify odd and even numbers for you to do on your Purple Mash account. You were all given a username and a password for this. I will be check to see who completes these daily

 

English – Your task today is to write what you did on Mothers Day.

- Who did you see?

- What did you do?

- Did you give someone card/present?

- How did you make someone feel?

Try to use the word ‘and’ to join two sentences together. Please encourage your child to use their phonics book for any sounds they are unsure of.

 

Don't forget to compete against your friends and the rest of the school on Ed Shed daily. I can see that less than 5 children did this yesterday. 

 

Mrs Green

 

As you are aware, I will be putting work on this page daily for your child to complete. Don't forget to write these in your Home Book with the date at the top of the page. 

 

Monday 23rd March

 

 

Maths - Say (and then write) your 2, 5 and 10 times tables. If your child is unsure then use a hundred square to help write these. If you type into Google 100 square there will be a lot to choose from. EXTRA CHALLENGE: Can you go past 100? Don't forget what we discussed with the hundreds, tens and ones. 

 

English - Spellings are to follow.

Your task today is to first write out your spellings and then write each of them in a sentence. Don't forget to use capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and making sure you sit your letters on the line. 

Don't forget to look on Spelling Shed (the link was in your letter) so you can complete the spellings games. You can compete against your friends and other groups. Use Stage 1 or look under more lists and assignment and you will see your group. 

 

DON'T FORGET TO:

- read everyday. 

- exercise daily.

- try to keep some sort of routine in the day e.g Get up, read, English, choosing time, lunch, Math, choosing time/Arts and crafts and exercise. 

- do something fun with your child. 

 

Stay safe. Mrs Green

 

 

Hello and welcome to Year 1. The children have been having lots of fun in their new class and have settled in very well. We have a fantastic Autumn Term coming up ahead of us with lots of interesting activities. Let’s see what we will be learning about…

 

In Religion – we are learning about families; our own, our school and our Church families.

 

In English – we are reading a variety of fiction books, such as The Gruffalo and other Julia Donaldson books. We will be predict what will happen in the stories, discuss the characters, plot of the stories and what the characters are thinking and feeling This will help your child understand the story better. We will be writing labels and lists as well as character descriptions.

 

In Maths – We will be looking at ordering the numbers to 100 and different ways to show these numbers. We will also be looking at different ways to make 10 and 20 by adding 2 numbers together.

 

In topic – we are looking at the topic “You are what you eat.” We are going discuss healthy foods, discuss a balanced diet a, look at where different foods come from and write instructions on how to plant seeds. We will also be discussing how to stay healthy with keeping fit and how being hygienic is important. Continuing on from this, we will be completing still life drawings of different fruits, designing a healthy meal and looking at where different foods come from.

 

Please don’t hesitate to talk to myself or Mrs Casey if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you and your children. Thank you for your support, Mrs Green.

A quick reminder that P.E is on a Tuesday and Wednesday and every child MUST have a P.E kit in school with them. Spellings will go home on Monday ready for our spelling test on Friday. Please also read with your child every night. This is very important as really impacts on your child. 

Thank you, Mrs Green

We have been very busy this half term! Take a look at what we have been doing.

 

Oh no! Look who came into school and scared Mrs Green! The children wrote some brilliant newspaper articles to inform and warn everyone about any more potential visits from The Gruffalo. We also gave this visitor a secret code name in case he heard us talking about him... Purple Prickles. 

 

 

Look at a couple of our fantastic reports!

We have been listening to the piece of music called In The Hall Of the Mountain King composed by Edvard Grieg. This piece of music was based around a boy running away from a scary troll king who lived in a cave. We have been writing setting descriptions of the cave, imagining what the troll looked like and describing it. We also listened to the music in our P.E lesson and imagined we were the boy escaping to the cave. We then moved around the hall rhythmically and used our drama skills to tell the story.

Fantastic work Year 1! 

We had our class Mass today. We discussed our families and how we could show them we loved them. Here are some of the things that your children said that they would do:

  • Help my mummy clean up
  • I will look after my baby brother and get things of the shelf when he can't
  • I will give everyone hugs. They like hugs

 

Some lovely ideas.

WARNING

We have found an alien ship landing in school!

Luckily it had a name on the ship which has helped us to know who this ship belongs to. Beegu.

We have started to read the story about Beegu and found out that she is lost on Earth, nobody understands her or wants to be her friend. The children thought about what she might be feeling and said terrified, miserable, lonely, confused and frightened. 

We have decided to to write her a guide to Earth to help her navigate around this planet. Here are some pictures of the alien landing, our reactions and a couple of  pieces of our work. 

We have been making Autumnal collage pictures this week. We used our knowledge of the different seasons and discussed the different colours that we find on the trees in Autumn. I could not believe how many amazingly talented artists we have in Year 1. One pupil even said, "I'm going to do some leaves falling of the trees because that's what they do in Autumn." I am one very impressed and proud teacher!

 

 

 

Year 1 did FANTASTIC in our Christmas production of Prickly Hay this week. Well done to each and every person, you all played a very important part in spreading the news of how Jesus was born.

Year 1 were lucky enough to have a visit from three Year 6 prayer leaders today. They planned there own collective worship and delivered it very confidently. Well done and thank you to Anna, Emily and Piotr. 

 

We had a brilliant trip to the Robert Peel statue and the Bury Art Museum where we got to see some artefacts about Robert Peel and a lot of incredible art! We have been learning about famous people from the past and one of the people we have researched was Robert Peel. We couldn't believe that he was originally from Bury! On our walk to the museum we also got to see a castle and discuss who we thought may have lived in a castle. The children decided that it could have been Queen Victoria who we have also been learning about.

 

WORLD BOOK DAY 2020

Year 1 really enjoyed World Book Day. We got to dress up as our favourite book characters (yes that includes Mrs Green and Mrs Casey), read lots of books and even design our own book mark. Take a look at our costumes and see if you can guess what book characters we are.
