Year 1- Thursday 14th May

Good morning, I trust you are all well and keeping safe today we are going to think about the many birds we might be seeing in our gardens. 


Today we will have a go at a reading activity. It is all about birds, I thought that would fit well into the work you did last week when you made a hide to spot lots of Wildlife! Some of your were so quiet you saw lots of birds.  

There are 3 levels for you to access- Gold, Silver and Bronze (3 Star, 2 Star and 1 Star). Please find the resources in the Hwb Class folder.    

RWInc will continue to have live lessons via YouTube so they will help us keep our 'sounds on the boil' whilst we are at home.  These will take place daily and can be located via the following link: 

Speed Sounds 2 and 3 are now being repeated so please allow a moment at the start of the lesson to allow them to reload.   


Today linked to our work on Birds, we are going to use our counting skills to record data on a bar graph. Can you remember how you were counting in 5s last week and recording it like a tally? If you spot that many birds try using that skill today. Once you have spotted your birds, record your data on a bar graph (see file in Hwb Class).  

Bronze: record data from bird spotting on a bar graph on paper or J2easy 

Silver: Record your data on a bar graph including your tally on paper or J2easy. Can you present it in more than one form when using J2easy? 

Gold: record your data using a tally to help count in 5s, using more than one graph and write some sentences to record what you have found out about the data. 


      Humanities & Well Being  

Important to have a healthy mind so make sure you try some yoga, do an online workout, complete the Daily Mile or go for a good walk. Always crucial to fuel our body with some fresh air! 

Continuing our work on Birds try and complete one (or more – if you like)  of the following activities:   

  • Draw/ paint a bird 

  • Make a model of a bird using recycled or natural materials 

  • Make a bird feeder  

  • Make some bird food 

  • Make a house for a bird 

  • Make a nest
