WE MISS YOU! XX
Friday 3rd April - Art - Portraits.
The third artist we were going to study was Amedeo Modigliani. Can you google his images? What do you think of his work? Do you like it? Now watch the short clip on you tube.
After watching the clip can you design your own mask, or look in a mirror and draw your own self portrait? Use any materials you can find around the home – pencil crayons, felt tips or paints try to use a different media to the other art portraits you have done e.g. if you used paint last time, this time use pencil crayons. I will look forward to seeing all your inspired ideas. Please, ask your parents to take photos of your work and send them to me so that I can see your masterpieces.
In History we have been discussing the big question ‘Were my grandparents toys more fun than mine?’ Do you remember the visitor we had in? Kevin? Can you tell your parents things that he told us about the past.
The oldest toy I have in my house is Muffin the Mule. He belonged to my dad. He is a puppet. He is made of metal and string. Muffin used to have a television show.
What is the oldest toy in your house? Can you tell me about it? Draw a picture of it. I'd love to see them :)
Wednesday 1st April.
Here are a list of 'a' words. Spend 2 minutes reading them all and remembering them, then look away and write down as many as you can remember in 2 minutes! Did you choose the right 'a'? How many did you remember? Which did you forget? x
rainbow, whale, steak, cake, crayon, train, snake, Saturday, paint, flame, tray, break, raisin, snail, delay, plane, portrait.
Tuesday 31st March - Art
In school, we have been exploring the work of artists from different times and cultures. We looked at portraits by the German artist Kathe Kollwitz and used charcoal and graded pencils to do our own portraits. The next artist we were going to study was Picasso, which is perfect for Mrs Tilsley's funny face challenge this week. Videos below are of me and Rose and Ronnie doing the funny face challenge in a Picasso style! They are great fun. Please have a go, photograph and send me - they will really brighten up my day :)
If you have already done one or are looking for extra activities then if you have any newspaper or magazines in your house, ask mum or dad if you can cut out any facial features to use in a portrait collage. If you don't have anything like that you could always draw the different eyes, nose and mouth; cut them out and then jumble them up! The crazier the better! Below are some pictures for inspiration. X
Monday 30th March.
Maths objectives this week are fractions. The best way to learn these is through foooooooood!
Have a look in your CGP book for any pages to support fractions.
For mums and dads the year 1 objectives are in bold with ideas next to them.
Recall halves for even numbers to 10 Use your fingers to help with this one. What is half of 6 – put 3 fingers on each hand etc.
Recall halves for even numbers from 12 to 20. Could you put these on bits of paper and stick on the stairs? E.g half of 12 = 6 on step one, half of 14 = 7 on step 2 etc. Then you can say them aloud each time you go up or down the stairs.
Find a half of an even number use practical items such as lego, coins etc but make sure that they are the same size e.g. if sharing coins use 4 ten pence pieces etc.
Find half of an odd number use items that that can be cut e.g. grapes, strawberries etc. What is half of 5 etc.
Find a quarter of items which are a multiple of 4 e.g 4 slices of 1 apple, 8 divided by 4 use peas, 12 divided by 4 use smarties, kitkats (are brilliant for this) etc. Remember that the parts must be equal.
So good to see you working hard at home as well as playing hard. Great to see your pictures.
Don't forget there is a maths competition on Sum Dog running from now until Monday for all classes. Come on Year 1, let's all get involved and get as many points as we can. You can do it!

Geography - The United Kingdom
The UK is made up of many different human and physical features. Please find the attached power point which gives some examples.
Some research questions......
1. What is the difference between a river and a canal?
2. What is the difference between a hill and a mountain?
3. What is a harbour?
4. What is a port?
5. What is Ben Nevis and where is it?
6. What is the Giant's Causeway and where is it?
7. Can you name some of the Lakes in the Lake District?
8. What is a valley?
9. Where is the Angel of the North? Can you find a picture of it?
10. What is the difference between a city, town and a village?
11. Which of the above are human features and which are physical features of the UK?
Good morning .
Did anyone manage to find out what the capital cities of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are? Maybe email me or post your answers on Facebook.
Hope you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday. Lets hope its another nice day.
We are missing you all. It's so lovely to read all your messages and see your photographs. Here are some more activities for you to try.
Take care x
1. Go on a map hunt around your home. How many different types of maps can you find in your house? Do you have a globe? Have you any road maps, OS walking maps, books with maps in, leaflets with maps on? What do the maps show? How are they different?
2. Can you draw a map/plan of a room in your house or your garden?
3. Do you know the compass points? NESW - North, South, East and West. Can you label NSE and W in your garden. What can you see when you look South or West? Can you make up a rhyme to remember the compass points e.g. Never, Eat, Shredded, Wheat.
There is an attached teaching and learning power point on maps if you can open it to help.
In class we have already located the capital city of England (London) on a map of the UK.
Can you now try and use an atlas or an interactive map (Google maps) to find out the names of the capital cities of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland?
Can you also locate them on a map of the UK and label them using the map I have provided in the word document below.
Do not worry if you can't print it out and do this. You could just find out the names of the capital cities of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
24.3.20 - Geography topic work activity idea
In our Geography topic we are learning all about the human and physical features of the United Kingdom. We have located England, Scotland, Wales and N.Ireland on a UK map. Now the children need to learn the capital cities of all four counties of the UK and their features. Why not research the capital city of England (London). Use the internet, find any books that you might have, ask anyone who has been to or lives in London. What human features are famous in London? E.g famous buildings, famous tourist attractions and iconic landmarks. Make a poster, maybe like some shown below and label the human features you have found out about London. Please post pictures.

Good morning Year One. We hope you are all well and keeping safe.
It is TIME week this week in Maths so why not have a go at some of these challenges.
1. Can you estimate how long you think one minute is? Get an adult to use a stopwatch or timer to see how close to one minute you get.
2. Keep an eye on the clock and experience how long one hour feels.
3. Have a clock hunt around your house. How many analogue and digital clocks can you find?
4. Use your clock that we made on Friday and get an adult to ask you to set the time on the clock. Can you make 4 o'clock or half past 2?
5. If you can print out the attached sheet and draw the hands on the clocks to show their times. Make sure your hour hand is shorter than your minute hand.
6. Challenge question - Leon walks to school with his mum. Do you think it takes 20 minutes, 20 hours or 20 days?
7. Challenge question - The Tom and Jerry shows lasts for 30 minutes. It starts at 10 o'clock. What time does it finish?
If you would like to share any pictures or work we would love to see them.
