Week beginning 27.4.20

It's been wonderful hearing from so many of you everyday by email. We have been blown away by how hard you've all been working and how creative you are being at home. It really does make us miss you even more! 

Stay safe, keep up the hard work but most importantly - do the things that make you happy! 

Miss Savoy, Mrs Didlick and Miss Stone smiley

 

 

TraffiLighChallenges

Please remember you don't have to complete all challenges! Look through the examples and decide what you think can do.
(The children are very good at deciding what level of challenge they can do at school!)
You don't have to pick the same level of challenge each day, you might pick gold on one day because you're brilliant at art but pick red the next day because you find writing in detail difficult.
Hope that helps!

Lesson 1

bubbles to show what

Lesson 2
WALT: describe a character by selecting ambitious vocabulary.

 

Watch the 'Caterpillar Shoes' story again. How many different characters were in the story? Can you draw out a timeline of meetings and list all the characters?

I have started a timeline for you:
 

 

 

Choose 2 animals that the caterpillar meets to describe. We are going to use expanded noun phrases and verbs to describe the character. I have done the spider as an example.

 

Remember: expanded noun phrases = adjective comma adjective noun

                   verbs = doing words such as jump, spring, wriggle

Lesson 3
WALT: identify features of a character description

 

Read the WAGOLL (What a good one looks like) below. 

 

 

What have I included to make my writing interesting? Can you create a poster that would tell Year 1 what to include if they were writing a character description?

 

If you are not feeling creative or if you're a little bit stuck use the table in the word document below to copy one example of each feature.

 

Topic

Science

When you make a discovery you might not want everyone to know about it straight away! Can you write me a secret message using invisible ink?

Outdoor Activities

There are lots of things to discover when you go exploring. Why don't you ask you parents to create a list for a scavenger hunt outside. If Moms and Dads are busy you could use my list or create a scavenger hunt for your brother or sister to do. 

Music

Your child was having a Vocal lesson in school once a week. To keep them going I have created some short films that they can watch and join in with.  All you need to do is click on the links below in the order you see them, and the lesson will appear. Before you start watching get yourselves ready, ask your child to sing a few notes and you are ready to go!  There will be another set of films next week and you can use the films more than once – in fact, the more the better.

 

 

Take Care,

Miss Ashman - Vocal teacher
