Year 1 Monday 18th May

Monday 18th May

I hope you are all feeling well and our thoughts are with you.

Okay this week we are going to look at George's Marvelous Medicine. Please see this video for some of the story and the literacy explanation. If you prefer you could skip to the 35 minute mark as it is me reading the fiery broth and witches brew part that is important to the work and I explain the task shortly afterwards.

English- onomatopoeia

George's Marvelous Medicine is full of onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia is noisy words that sound similar to the meaning. For example the word bang sounds like bang.

  •  Bronze: Go through the extract. Can you colour in/ highlight all the words that are noisy onomatopoeia
  • Silver: On Hwb there is a onomatopoeia worksheet. Can you match as many noisy words to the pictures on the first page.
  • Gold: Complete the rest of the worksheet.

 Topic-safety around medicine part 1

Today we are going to look at the different substances that we place on or in our body. Tomorrow we will look more closely at the dangers of medicine. Introduce children to the concept that medicines are drugs designed to keep us well and help us get better. Who needs medicines? - We all do but only when we are sick. Who gives us medicines? Adults, doctors

  • Bronze: Draw round a child on large piece of paper and brainstorm all the things we take into and on to our bodies – eg air,  (pollution), rain, food, drink, medicine, injections, cream, make up, plasters, inhalers, eye drops, ear drops, nose drops, tablets.
  • Silver: Highlight the things that help our bodies get better when they are hurt or if we are ill. Encourage children to share experiences of taking medicines.
  • Gold: Have a look at some medicine bottles you may have, you may need to read them. What are the clues that they are dangerous? (Keep out of reach of children, child safety caps any warning signals etc)

 Maths-Subtraction within 20

Today we are going to use a number line to help us with our subtraction understanding. I would recommend the children create their own number line for number formation practice. You could do this small scale using pen and paper or using chalk you could make a giant number line outside. This BBC bitesize video is a great explanation of how to use a number line. is  an example of an interactive numberline.

 To complete this task you could use a BBC bitesize task to give some of the sums.

  • Bronze: Complete activity one. If they are still struggling with the number line get them to practice taking away 1 and give them physical objects they can use to double check they are right.
  • Silver: Activity two.
  • Gold: Activity three the subtraction quiz. This will test a broader understanding of subtraction such as how to write a subtraction number sentence.
