Year 1 Home Learning during Lockdown

Welcome to the Home Learning page for Year 1. During the school closure you can expect daily maths, English and phonics tasks.  Some tasks will be pre-loaded for the week but you can expect daily tasks to be uploaded by 8:30am at the latest on the day they are needed (unless there are technical difficulties!). 

There will also be a range of tasks from other subject areas.  Children can choose what order they do these other tasks in.  We recommend doing two of these additional tasks each day. 

You can expect regular contact from members of staff during the school closure. This may be by email, Marvellous Me or by phone.  If the member of staff is calling from their own phone it will be a withheld number. 

Staff will check and respond to the year group email regularly and a member of staff will be available to respond directly between 1 and 2pm, Monday-Friday. 

Please email a photo of a piece of work your child has done each day to the year group email: year1@dovecote.school

Our Topic Theme this half term is Oceans and Water

PLEASE NOTE: You may have noticed that the Year 1 web page looks a little different.  We are trying to have a similar approach across the year groups so that parents accessing multiple year groups are following the same format.  The learning below is now in a collection of daily tasks (which include Maths, English and Phonics) from Monday through to Friday. 

Underneath all of the daily collections of Maths, English and Phonics you will find the Further Learning Activities which you can choose two or more of a day and do in any order.

Our new topic book for the half term is: 

Each day we will be updating the English, maths, phonics and topic acitvties for you to have a go at. 

Each day you should try to complete: 

  • ​1 maths acitvity
  • 1 English activty 
  • 1 phonics activity 
  • 2 other subject activities 

Email a photo of a piece of work your child has done each day to the year group email: year1@dovecote.school

What a lot of snow!

We'd love to know how you have enjoyed the snow! As we are learning about weather this half term, why not get out and explore the snow?

As well as having fun and building snowmen you could also:

Take some photogrpahs showing the snow.

Measure how deep the snow is, how many centimetres fell?

Bring some snow in and watch how it melts. How long does it take to melt? How much water (in milligrams) do you get from a snowball?

Build a snowman and measure how tall it is. We'd love to see photos!

 

We'd love to know what snowfun and snow learning you get up to!

Geography

This week we are going to be thinking about water and rivers. Start of finding out more about rivers by wathcing the BBC Bitesize Video.

Rivers: Where do rivers come from?

This video charts the journey of a river from its source to the sea or a lake.

It explores the main aspects of each leg of the river journey, introducing pupils to vocabulary to describe the river journey and to the key features of rivers along the way.

 

Things to talk about:

· What is a river?
· Where do rivers begin?
· What probles might come from living near a river? 

 

Rivers Near Us:

What is the nearest river to us? Your task today is to research all about rivers.

What is the nearest river to us called? Can you find it on a map? Have you ever seen it when you've been on a walk? 

 

Water

Watch this episode of 'Come Outside' with Auntie Mabel to learn more about water.

Practical Learning Challenges

Extra time at home could be a good opportunity to work on some more practical skills. Have a look at these ideas and see if there any that you (or your grown up!) think would be good for you to work on. We'd love to see how you get on with these practical activities!

Tying Laces

Being able to tie shoelaces is such an important skill and helps you to be independent. Have a look at the guide below to help. 

Play a Board Game

Playing board games is a great way to work on a lot of different skills. Taking turns, counting on and back and many more! What games do you like to play?

Telling the Time

In Year 1 we learn how to tell the time to the hour and to the half hour. This would be a great thing to master during home learning time. 

Help Make Breakfast

Help your grown prepare breakfast. There is so much to learn in the kitchen! Measuring out amounts, as well as the physical skills of carefully pouring!

Completing a Jigsaw

Jigsaws are great! They help build your attention and concentration. We'd love to see photos of you and you compelted jigsaws! 

Sorting the Laundry

Helping with household jobs can have so many learning opportunities. Can you help sort and fold clothes carefully?

Playdough

Help your grown up to make some playdough. Measure out the ingridients carefully and mix it all up. Playdough is great for fine motor skills, as well as being great fun!

Making Sandwiches

Can you make a sandwich for your lunch? With the help of a grown up, why not plan and make your own lunch one day. You could even write some instructions to let us know how you did it. 

Baking

Learn how to bake some tasty treats. This is a yummy way to practise weighing and measure amounts, as well as all of the physical skills involved. Here are some simple recipes you could try.
