## Don't forget our class meeting today at half past one!

Year 1 Timetable

Session 1: Phonics Session 2: English Session 3: Maths Session 4: Art Session 5: Additional Activities

This week we are looking at the alternative spelling for the phoneme /ar/.

Start by writing down words that rhyme with boy.

Will all the words have the same spelling for the phoneme?  How do you know?

Read the list of words with today's phoneme and then sort them into the grid.

This week we are continuing with our work on the text, 'Hansel and Gretel' by Anthony Browne.

This week we are going to focus on writing our retelling of the story - today's lesson focuses on beginning the editing process by looking at the content we have included.

As with last week, you will need to watch the PowerPoint below (make sure you have the sound on).

Where you see this symbol on the PowerPoint, pause the video to consider and discuss the questions with a grown up at home.

Where you see this symbol on the PowerPoint, you need to pause the video and write down your ideas.

As today is an editing session, there isn't a new sheet to write on.

This week we are going to return to measurement - specifically looking at measuring length and height.

Today's lesson focus is measuring the length of an object using non-standard units.

1. Warm up your Maths brain with the BBC Supermovers - The 5 Times Table with the Posh Pooch!

2. Work through the video below. Remember to pause the video when prompted and discuss your thinking with a grown up at home.

3. Complete the worksheet attached.

If you are unable to print the worksheet, you could find different objects at home to measure. You will need to use a smaller object (such as paper clips, Lego pieces of the same size or cubes) as your non-standard unit to measure the larger items. Estimate the length before checking by measuring. Record your work in a simple chart like the one below:

 Object Estimate (Lego pieces) Measurement (Lego pieces) Book 10 12

This term in Art, we are going to be investigating portraits and developing our drawing skills.

Today's lesson focus is investigating how objects can be used in portraits to say something about the person in the portrait.

Start by working through the PowerPoint below. Remember to pause the video to consider the questions posed.

Today's task is to set up and pose for your own photograph portrait - you will need a grown up at home to take the photograph for you.

Once you have chosen your favourite photograph portrait, ask a grown up at home to send it to our class email address so that we can share them with each other next week in the classroom.

Read to your grown up

10 minutes on Numbots.
