Year One- Friday 27th March

It has been lovely to see some of your work on Hwb and lots of it has involved going out in the fine weather, keep it coming- well done!

Literacy: Big Write

Using your research from yesterday about Big Ben write a information sheet to present what you have found out to share with the Y1 Team.

Try and include where Big Ben is located, how Big Ben is made and how it works and some interesting facts such as the name of the tower and any links you found out yesterday to Benjamin Hall.

Bronze: include at least 3 sentences that give an interesting fact and an image                                                                                    

Silver: include at least 5 interesting facts in your fact file and an image                                                                                              

Gold: Include 6+ interesting facts and image/ and or diagram as well as some information you have found out about Benjamin Hall.

I've added some templates to the class files, to give a guide for you to layout your work in your book or print out and use. You are more than welcome to complete your work on Hwb via Just2easy…we can't wait to see you work whichever method you choose. I'm sure Robin would look forward to seeing some pieces too, if we can get them to him. He was very pleased with our thankyou letters last week!

Numeracy: Today we usually complete our Big Maths Challenges….as we do these in paper form in class I've identified areas that we need to work on whilst I find a way of sharing our challenges securely.                                                                                              

 Bronze: Number Bonds to 10                                                                                                                                                                  

 Use objects around the house to help you find the missing number to total 10. (Beads, lego, daisies, leaves in the garden etc…) have 4 items on display how many are hiding. I have also added some resources to the class files on Hwb if you wish to access these but please make this a fun enjoyable ongoing activity. Little and often is best!                                                                                             

Silver: I can read a number sentence.                                                                                                                                              

Read your number sentence , say 'add' for '+', say 'equals' for '='. As with Bronze, please use real life objects to make this task fun and interesting the main purpose is to ensure we combine objects when we add and use the term equal to find the total. Resources to support, once again are available via the Y1 Hwb Classroom but make this a fun, incidental, real life activity.        


Gold: Fact Families                                                                                                                                                                            

This helps us to recall a Learn It fact and how the linked facts are true and nothing new!                                                                

The first step, Step 1, is very easy and straight forward. The child can just take any learn It and say it out loud as a nice clear sentence. For example, "2 + 3 = 5"                                                                                                                                                         

Step 2 introduces the child to a 'Switcher'. This is where the child 'switches' the first two numbers around but knows the answer won't change. For example "3+2=5"                                                                                                                                                   

Step 3 has no new mathematical challenge, we merely ask the child to say both the original Learn It and the 'Switcher' together.     

Step 4 is the child saying the inverse statement such as, "5 - 2 = 3". We might ask them to, 'tell me the take-away'. Can then progress to giving the other 'take away' , "5 – 3 =2"

Finally, on the top step, Step 5, the child can say all 4 sentences. (2+3=5, 3+2=5, 5-2=3 & 5-3=2). 

Try and write a fact family for the numbers, 3,4,7 and 2,4,6…. Good Luck, please share with us your fact families.

Science and Technology:                                                                                                           

Use Just2easy via Hwb to complete a table and present the data. Mrs Peacock spoke and emailed some of her family to ask them what their favourite fruit was, this information was added to my table and produced my bar graph. Use J2Data when you login to J2easy and select 'Chart' to begin creating your table of data. You can complete your data collection using something of interest to you (favourite colours, food, activity, sport etc…). Your work will be saved in Just2easy so the Y1 team will be able to see when you have completed it. This can be completed over the next week or so as it will take a little longer to collect data. Feel free to send a msg to us to ask the Y1 team your question.

Bronze: Collect data using 3 choices and present in a bar graph.                                                                                                            

Silver: Collect data using 4 choices and present in 2 ways.                                                                                                                      

Gold: Collect data using 5+ choices and present in at least 3 ways.

Don't forget to get out in the garden, have a run around and take in some fresh air! Do something with your family, play a board game, paint a rainbow, tell them a joke. Keep smiling, stay safe…we'll see you as soon as we can x
