Tell children that today they are going to create a design for a new pair of knickers for the Queen.

We could have a competition for the best pair of knickers and imagine if the Queen came to judge and pick a winner.

What would they look like?  Would they have a secret feature like a super hero?  What could that be?

  • Secret gun pouch
  • Pocket for a corgi
  • A built in walkie talkie to call her driver or guard
  • A pocket for a bell to call her maid

How Famous is Mary Seacole?

Mary Seacole was a Jamaican-born nurse who is remembered for helping soldiers during the Crimean War. Using this video your child can create a simple timeline of Mary Seacole’s life. If this is too challenging, why not ask your child to design an award for Mary Seacole. Your child could also locate Jamaica and Scotland on a world map.   You could look at Florence Nightingale instead.

 

Keep them Clean!

Mary Seacole visited Florence Nightingale, another important nurse, during the Crimean War.

Art

Use this power point presentation   ART power point  to find out about a painting called “La Gerbe” by Henri Matisse.   Go for a walk around your garden or locally.  Find different kinds of leaves and bring them home. 

Can you make sketches of the leaves that you find.  Shade the leaves and include the detail of the veins.

Next we are going to try to make an abstract painting just like Matisse, using one of the leave shapes we have drawn.  Remember to make the plant look real by drawing it sprouting from one point and fanning outwards.  Use varying sizes of leaves as Matisse did.  Select colours with meaning like Matisse did and paint your art work.  If you don’t have paint you could use felt pens.

Send me photos of your wonderful works of art please.

Read “One day on our beautiful planet in the rainforest by Ella Bailey.

 

Note all the wonderful animals that live in the rainforest.  List in a grid on the board into the sections of the rainforest that thy live in.

When each animal is discussed, think of adjectives to describe them.

Think of powerful verbs and adverbs to describe what they do and how they do it e.g:

A black, long-armed spider monkey. Swings, quickly through the canopy.

  • Forest floor
  • Understory
  • Canopy
  • Emergent layer

Children can draw their own large rainforest cluster of trees (see above).  In each layer select 2 animals and draw or cut and stick photos of them.  Children create an expanded noun phrase to describe what the creature looks like.  E.g:  A black spider monkey.    A colourful, feathered parrot.  A grey, snuffling anteater.

At the end of the lesson, discuss with the cdn how this activity will help them to select powerful verbs and adjectives tomorrow when we write poetry.

Thursday 11th June

Good morning Trilby's.  How are you all?

How about starting your day with a bit of Dance?  Have a go at this Zumba kids exercise video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymigWt5TOV8

Here is your learning for today:

Phonics

Begin by helping the monsters to read.  Sound out each sound that appears.   https://www.teachyourmonstertoread.com/digital-flashcards

Today we are going to focus on the digraphs ‘ee’ and ‘ear’. Watch these videos:

ee:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfM7Hz7US0U

ear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EneZ1UubxSA

Can children put these words into a sentence?

Can you think of any more ear words and if you can put suffixes on them?

 

Maths

Part whole models

Using a part whole model to solve a missing number sentence.

Look at each part whole number model and create a number sentence to match which you must solve.  The children should count on from the given smaller number until they get to the larger one. This will then give them the other missing ‘part’ on the part whole model.

You could use counters to count on.  If you are in the blue and yellow groups you could use tens and ones jotting to count on in ones to a multiple of ten and then on in tens to the target whole number.  Or find the answer by crossing off to find the missing number from the total.

Here is a worksheet for you to use: 

Red group –       Number bonds sheet

Green group –      Sheet 2

Blue group –      Sheet 3

Yellow group -      Sheet 4

Task 1 - Label a diagram of a sea turtle.

Click here:   Life cycle diagram worksheet

Task 2 - Ask  children to write sentences to explain the life cycle of a turtle.

Click here:    Sea Turtle Life Cycle work booklet

 

Topic

The Oceans of the World

Using an atlas or the internet, ask your child to identify the world’s oceans. Year 1 children may need some support with this.

Can they find out what animals live in each ocean?   Can you draw some of them or list them under each heading of sea or ocean?

This game allows your child to practise naming and locating the oceans.

 

Reading

I love the elephant that you made from a milk bottle after you found out about elephants.  Impressive writing Payton!   My favourite photo is the one where you dressed up as a recylcing collector and sorted all the recycled objects.  Absolutely brilliant!!  She has also been doing her part in trying to save our environment.  She has been pickking up litter in the OUtwoods to try to clean it up and keep it clean.  Thank you Payton.

Who has been singing in the shower and made it rain?   Come back sunshine! sad

Lots of people had trouble accessing Numbots yesterday.  I've reset everybodys passwords and then rest them again back to the original password and I think I've solved the issue.  Try again today. Your login and password is your original password I gave you, there is no change to this. I think they are experienceing problems on the website with so many children trying to get on at the same time.  Try using the site at a different time of day.  But there are no issues with passwords now as I've logged on as every one of you last night, and they all definitely work.angel

Poppy's dad Chris Davies, has sent me this photo today of a newspaper article involving him and his family.  This article is in the Tamworth Herald this week and is really worth a read. 

Mr Davies is raising money for a charity that is dear to his heart by running 5km every day in 2020. The charity helped his daughter and our class mate, Poppy when she was born with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH).  He is aiming to raise £1000, £1 for every day that poppy was effected by CHD when she was younger.     

We are so proud of you Chris and hope you raise lots and lots of money for such a super worthy charity.

 

He's so close to his target, let's help him.   If you would like to donate to the charity CDH UK,  then go to just giving page at:

Good Morning everyone.

Here is the learning that you could have a look at today:

Phonics – Play Roy the Zebra  game to help you to spell the days of the week. click on this link:  

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/english-games/5-7-years/words-and-  Then scroll down till you get to the Zebra game.

Writing - Next, have a go writing the days of the week into your book.  You could write down something that you go on each day of the week to create a sentence for each of the seven days.

Maths –  Have  a go at this place value game :  place value basketball game. Right click open hyperlink:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/place-value-basketball .

Next practise writing the numbers 20 – 100 in digits and write the numbers just to 20, in words.

Topic - My HouseDiscuss with your child what their house looks like inside and outside? How many bedrooms does it have? Who has the biggest bedroom? Who has the smallest? Ask them to look outside their window and see if they can spot a house different to their own.

Can they draw or paint their house? (sent me a photo!)  How many windows at the front? How many windows at the back? Do you have one door or two?

In a special bag - could you (with adult support) place things that make it your home? Why would you pick those items?

 

Don’t forget to practise your spellings for your test this week and read to an adult in your house.  This could be one of your school reading books or a book from home. 

Try this new technique for reading harder books, it’s called “Paired Reading.”

If you get stuck on a really hard word, you can knock on the table and your partner (an adult) will know that you are stuck on a  word and they can read the word for you.  Don’t knock for lots of words though, always have a  go at sounding out words that you get stuck on.  Try just knocking for words when there is a sound that you have not come across before.   

Good luck xxx

Laila - Laila has been very busy in the garden last week enjoying the sunshine with her little sister Isla.   She had an egg hunt, put up her hot tub and practiced herswimming and did lots of mark making with the chalks on the slabs.  She also created a colourful rainbow to show  support for the key workers which is now in the kitchen window.

Today she has made a fruit sald with her mummy.  She chopped fruits and added some orange juice. Then she drew the fruits she used and wrote the names and then she wrote a method.  Wow Laila, brilliant work!

Monday 30th March

Hello everyone,

I thought I’d share some exciting Science news!

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when we planted the runner bean seeds?  We talked about what seeds need to grow.  You all told me that seeds must have water, sunlight and soil to grow in.    But I said to you that I didn’t think seeds needed soil to be able to grow and you didn’t believe me.  You told me to prove it!   Well I have!

We planted our beans in a jar with just cotton wool to support them and gave them a drink of water.  Here are some photos of our seeds two weeks later (taken on friday afternoon). 

They have absorbed all of the water from the cotton wool and they have cracked open (germinated).  They have grown a root and shoot and will be ready to be plant out soon.

Now here are photos of our seeds today - they have doubled in size.  Isn’t that amazing! 

So what have we learned?  Seeds only need water to germinate – that means begin to grow a root and a shoot.  They don’t need soil or sunlight.  But to carry on growing strong and healthy, they will need sunlight so that they can make food using their leaves.  When they are transplanted into soil later, they will use their roots to suck up water and important vitamins and minerals from the soil; that they can’t get from the cotton wool. 

I’m looking after your bean seeds at home for you now.  When they are all ready, I will plant them into pots for you and put them in my greenhouse.

Thursday 26th March

Hello everyone!

How are you all?  I hope you are all well and you are keeping busy at home.

The weather is lovely at the moment so I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and making the most of getting into the garden without it raining. 

I’ve been teaching my little boy how to weed and plant in the garden.  He wanted to mow the lawn but I thought that might be a little bit dangerous!

I have been having a go at the Joe Wickes PE session each day.  I’m not as fit as all of you so my legs are really hurting now on day 4!  I might have a day off tomorrow. Image result for laughing emoji

Christingle Service

Today the Vicar from Mancetter church came into school and talked to us about The Christingle services that take place in Christian churches before Christmas.  She told us why Christingle services are important in the Christian church.   She showed us how to make a Christingle and shared with us what each part of the Christingle symbolises:

  • The orange represents the world
  • The red ribbon (or tape) symbolises the love and blood of Christ
  • The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations
  • The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness.

        

We went back to our classes and made our own Christingles.

 

Victorian Day

This half term we have been learning about what life was like for children over one hundered years ago.  Today we came to shool dressed as Victorians and spent the day learning as they would have done in school.

We took part in reading writing and arithmetic lessons in the morning.  We wriote on slate boards with chalk which was very difficult.  In the afternoon the children took part in drill lessons and played Victorian games.  We skipped using a huge rope and drew hopscotches on the playground.

        

      

      

        

      

      

       

      

          

    

 We had a brilliant day.

 

Our Christmas Nativity

Our Christmas production  went down a storm today!  The crowds flocked to Lower School Hall today to see our production of "Whoopsy Daisy Angel."  Everyone performed  brilliantly and Mrs Taylor said that our singing was fantastic, some of the best she had heard!

A special mention to Brooke Bates who made a particularly funny Whoopsy Daisy Angel.   

Well done everyone, I was very proud of you all.

From Miss Maddocks.

 

Pattern Fun in Maths

This week we have been looking at 2D shape in our maths work.  We have been looking at patterns.  We continued patterns we were given or that our teacher began, using different colours and different shapes.  We made our own patterns using shapes and challeged our partners to continue them.

      

      

 

Our Visit To Sudbury Hall Childhood Museum

We had a lovely day today on our trip to Sudbury Hall Museum.  We enjoyed finding out about the lives of Victorian children in the past.  

There was lots to see and do.  We took part in a workshop about victorian toys.  Some toys, we still play with today, but many were very different to our own toys,  Most of the toys were made from wood.

      

    

We found out that some children didn't go to school, they went to work.  If they were small enough, they worked as chimney sweeps because they were small enough to climb up inside the chimney.

      

We dressed up as Victorian children and took part in a school lesson with a very sstrict teacher.  It was very different fromschool today and we are so glad that school is not like that anymore!

                     

We had a brilliant time !

 

Investigating Blubber!

In Science today we have been investigating how polar animals keep warm.  Some have a double layer of fur to keep them warm.  Other animals have a thick layer of blubber which keeps them warm.

We carried out an experiment to find out how blubber works.

         

First we filled a washing up bowl with cold water and ice and waited for the water temperature to go down.

              

Then we covered one of our hands in vaseline.  This would act like the blubber around an animal's body to keep our hands warm.

Then we plunged our hands into the cold water.  The hand covered with vaseline, felt much warmer in the icy water than our hand without vaseline. It stoppped the temperature of one hand from dropping.

           

We understand how blubber works now.

 

Welcome to Year One

We have had a lovely first day in our new class.  Here are our first day photos.
