Year 1 Tuesday 23rd June

English-Recapping verbs, nouns and adjectives.

Today we will be following on from yesterdays look at Verbs to recap a verb (doing word), noun (naming word) and adjective (describing word). We shall use this game to create a character that might be in a play

  • Bronze. Choose a noun, adjective and verb to create a character in this play. After you have done this recap the definitions and see if they can explain what each type of word is in their own words.
  • Silver. Can you think of your own noun, adjective and verb to create a character, draw this character and write a sentence about this character.
  • Gold. Cut out words from old Newspapers, magazines or write down words from your favourite book. Would they be a noun, verb or adjective? You could sort them in a table.

Maths- counting forwards and backwards in 2

The big maths scheme would like the learners to be comfortable in counting in multiples/lots of two up to 100 and back. Yesterday these learners "discovered" the numbers that are multiples of two. These are called even numbers and are the ones that end with a flat top. Today we are going to recap the pattern of counting in twos.

Warm up. Count up in twos. When you shout switch they count backwards. If they struggle to get to twenty then warm up with a counting in twos song.

Please note, with practice they should get the hang of the counting pattern. However it is normal to find 12, 14, 16 and 18 difficult. These numbers are examples of teen numbers (11-19 are the teen numbers) and are tricky because they have a completely different sound pattern to them. In an ideal world they would be called 10-2, 10-4, and so on.

  • Bronze. Using a number square colour in the multiples of two. Can you get all the way to 100?. (You can create a giant one outside using chalk or use this online version) Once they have done this have a go counting forwards and back from different starting points.  
  • Silver.  What do you notice? They should spot that the numbers skip, that there are 5 columns and all the numbers end in 2, 4, 6, 8 and 0.
  • Gold. Have a go at starting them at different points. You say 74, 76, 78 and they have to carry on  their own. Do this forwards and backwards. If you have drawn a giant chalk number square they can follow along by jumping to the numbers. You can make this harder by giving them less numbers, going backwards and as an extra challenge starting on incorrect numbers and they have to spot the mistake.

Topic-aerial view/birdseye

Maps use a simple aerial/birds eye view. This is what a place would look like if you were a bird looking down from the sky. Using google earth/google maps explore famous landmarks/areas that they will recognise.

  • Bronze. Using Google maps/Earth on satellite view show them the aerial view of their street or an area they are very familiar with. Can they spot buildings that they recognise?
  • Silver. Switch between street view and satellite/aerial view. How does the pictures look different. Write down 3 ways your house/another landmark is different. (Unable to see doors/windows, Able to see into the neighbours garden the house looks like a block etc.)
  • Gold. Can you follow a route that you travel using just aerial view? This could be from your home to the local shop or from your house to school.
