Year 1 15/06/20

Monday 15/06/20

Hope everyone is doing well.

Week two of the enchanted wood. We are going to listen/read up to the point that they think they must see what is up the top of the far away tree. It is the 21.12 minute mark.

English-sentence types

There are 4 main sentence types and we will begin to explore the rules and differences between these. These sentence types are…
1.      Statement sentences usually end with a full stop and tell us about a fact or an opinion. Banana's are yellow and my favourite fruit.
2.      An exclamation sentence can only end with an exclamation mark and are similar to statement sentences but shows a high amount of emotion or excitement. I can't wait for my Banana snack!
3.      Command sentences could end with a full stop or an exclamation mark and are "bossy" because they tell someone to do something. Don't step on the banana skin. If you use an exclamation mark it suggests urgency to the command. Don't step on that banana!
4.      Question sentences always end with a question mark and ask a question. Would you like a banana?
For more help with these sentences you can use this BBC bitesize lesson
and watch the video.
•       Bronze. Complete the first page of activity three. I have also uploaded the document onto Hwb in the literacy folder. (Named sentence types)
•       Silver. Complete the second page of activity three.
•       Gold. When reading/listening to our story listen out for the different sentence types. Did the story use all the sentence types? (This would be an ideal time to use a tally chart as a bonus activity.)

Maths introducing Carrol diagrams

The powerpoint is on hwb in the maths folder labelled Carroll diagram.
The learners have looked at sorting via circles and Venn diagrams. This week we shall look at Carrol diagrams. Fun fact the author of Alice in wonderland came up with the concept of sorting using this method and so the diagrams are named after him. I have uploaded a video that provides a short explanation of Carroll diagrams that will hopefully help. Disclaimer, you will hear the faint dulcet tones of my daughter in the background. She was with her mum but wanted to get my attention for a tower she had built. 😊

•       Bronze. Complete Where do you think these shapes will fit in the Carroll diagram slide. You should be able to drag and drop the shapes in editing mode.
•       Silver. Can you correct the mistake Mr Carbis made on the next slide?
•       Gold. Can you create your own rules/criteria using the shapes available.?

Topic-A plants structure.

We will use another BBC bitesize lesson to help look at the main structure of plants.
Some plants have flowers, where their pollen is stored. Plants need to spread their pollen to other plants for more of them to grow but they cannot move around to share their pollen. Why do you think flowers are so colourful and nice smelling?

•       Bronze. Draw/paint your own picture of a plant. Make sure you include the 3 main parts. (root, stem and leaves).
•       Silver. Complete the quiz in activity 1 of the BBC bitesize lesson
•       Gold. Become a botanist. With the help of an adult pick a plant/flower from your garden. I want you to carefully separate each part of the plant and look at them carefully, writing down anything you notice about the stem, leaf, flower and roots. (This could be colour, shapes, whether it is hairy etc.) This is inspired by this video which you may want to watch first.
