Good morning everyone!

Daily practise

 

Yesterday’s activity

How did you get on with putting the food items into alphabetical order?

Well done if you arranged them in this order:

 

bananas

coffee

grapes

ice cream

jelly

lemons

 

Super work if you added some words of your own, particularly if they started with the same letter and you had to compare the second letters of the words. smiley smiley

 

 

Today’s activity

L.O. (Learning Objective):   I can use my imagination to write a short story.

Over the next three days we are going to use our imagination to create a short story. 

 

Imagine you wake up one morning to discover that you have shrunk to the size of a spoon!   Look around your house and decide where you would sleep, what you would use for a bed, a table, a chair etc…. 

I think I would sleep on top of the pile of tea towels in the kitchen drawer as it looks cosy in there, but what would I use as table?  How about you?

Draw a picture of yourself in your small bed or using your minute table and write some sentences about it.  Can you describe how it feels and how you manage to climb in?  Use your imagination!  Do you like being tiny?  Why?  

 

Always check your work for:

  • finger spaces
  • capital letters
  • full stops
  • and does it make sense? Read it back. 

 

Tomorrow we will add to our story. Have fun!

Reading

Read your book to a grown-up every day.  Tell them what you think might happen next – make predictions.

 

Today’s activity

L.O. (Learning Objective):   I can use my imagination to write a short story.

I wonder where you have chosen to sleep and eat now that you are only the size of a spoon?!  Read your work from yesterday to remind yourself what you wrote.  I’m sure you did brilliantly!

 

Today we are going to add the next part to our stories……

 

Oh dear!  Today, there’s going to be a big problem! surprise

 

It might be that your pet is heading towards you……how do you feel with this huge animal towering over you?  What will you do?  What happens? 

 

Or maybe, you desperately want some food.  You can see some, but how do you reach it?  How do you get it without falling?  Describe what the food is and how much of it you eat – remember, you are only the size of a spoon!

 

Draw a picture and write what happens.  Make it exciting!

 

Always check your work for:

  • finger spaces
  • capital letters
  • full stops
  • and does it make sense?

Tomorrow we will add the final part to our stories. Have fun!

Today’s activity

L.O. (Learning Objective):   I can use my imagination to write a short story.

 

Read your story through so far.  What adventures you’ve had!  smiley  We are going to add one last part to our stories today.

 

Imagine that you have discovered that every time you jump you grow a centimetre taller!  What will you do?  Do you want to grow back to your usual size or do you want to stay the size of a spoon?  Why?  You may even decide that you want to keep jumping and turn into a giant!  You decide.  Write and draw about what you decide to do and what happens.

 

Always check your work for:

  • finger spaces
  • capital letters
  • full stops
  • and does it make sense?

 

Here is a link to the Year 1 common exception words (you would have been given a copy of this at the beginning of the year).  Check your work to ensure that these words are spelt correctly.  Find a purple pen (or another colour) to make any corrections, just like we do at school. cool

Super work everyone!

Reading

Read your book to a grown-up every day.  Tell them what you think might happen next – make predictions.

 

Handwriting

L.O. (Learning Objective):   I can form the letters c and o correctly and can write them a consistent size.

 

Log on to letterjoin (username:south  password:brent).  Go to 'Free Play' then  ‘easy letters’, then to the letters c and o.

Watch the demonstration and have a go on the screen if you are using a tablet. 

You might like to practise the same letters with a different background just for fun.  For example, on the menu, go to ‘Fun’ and experiment.  Remember to form your letters correctly though!

 

Then, ask a grown-up to draw a few lines in your book so that you can practise these letters with a pencil.

Start by writing some super neat letter ‘c’ s (no need to write a whole line, aim for about 10 very carefully written ones) and then some super neat ‘o’s.

Remember we are not joining our letters yet, but we are aiming to form them correctly and to keep them the same size.

 

Have a go at writing each of the following words 3 times.  Make sure you are sitting straight and trying your best.  Do a tiny tick next to the words you are most proud of!

 

cone

coil

cow

 

Well done everyone!
