Year 1 Home Learning 20th July 2020

Expectations for the week beginning 20th July 2020

Reading Daily, for at least 10 minutes.

If you don’t have access to appropriate books, a whole range of books to read online can be found in the Oxford Owls e-book library. Email if you need the class log in code.

Spelling Daily for 10 minutes using the spelling word list for the week. Sort the words by the spelling (we say to the children, “It’s the same sound but different spelling”), then learn to read and spell them.

Writing Continue from last week and write your own story. Have a go at the SPaG mat (two stars is the expected level for Year 1).

Maths Complete the mental maths quiz sheets and maths mats.

Topic/other curriculum -

What is the weather like?

Look at the instruction for last week, finish off any of the tasks below not yet done.

  1. Make a rain gauge/wind gauge – choose from one of these. This will be dependent on the current weather (there may be no rain!) You may like to continue to look at it over the summer to see how it changes from week to week)
  2. Make predictions about how much rain will fall in the week or what the wind speed or direction might be?
  3. Begin to look at how to record rainfall/wind speed/direction

Well done, you have reached the end of term after a super term of home learning! I would like to say a great big thank you to all of our parents and children alike for engaging with the work set and for working so hard under such difficult circumstances. Have a great summer and I look forward to seeing you all back in school in September.
