Pluto Class Year One

Week 6 - w/c 6/7/2020

 

Hiya Pluto Class

 

It was so lovely talking to so many of you last week and hearing all about your adventures with your adults and brothers and sisters.

 

I hope you have been enjoying our Space topic!  This week we are going to start looking at Fairy Tales and thinking about how to write or tell one of our own.  We will also be drawing a fairy house and a special fairy.  I have found some pictures that you can look at and imagine that you are there and write about what you would hear, see, smell, touch and taste.  It is so much more interesting when we use all of our senses. 

 

I have also put on some worksheets and activities to do with the three little pigs story which is a well loved Fairytale.  

 

For Maths we are looking at arrays and practising our times tables!

 

There is a lovely new science project called Scientists and Inventors.  I have put on some activities for this too!

 

I have found so much for you to do that you should have enough for at least the next 2 weeks. Ask your adults to e mail me if you need any more but I don't think you will!

 

Have a lovely week I will give some of you a call and hope to see you very soon.

 

Mrs Hicks

This is a real Fairy Glen in Scotland.  How do you think you will feel if you visit there? 
The picture above has been drawn by someone and looks like a Fairy Village.  Can you imagine being there and living in the village!  Write down or tell someone your thoughts about the picture.

This week we have a new science topic: Scientists and inventors. This pack should last you for the next two weeks. I hope that you enjoy it.

Hiya Pluto Class

 

I hope you are all well and happy!

 

It was so lovely being able to talk to some of you lastweek.  I will be trying you again this week so please listen out for the phone as some of your adults didn't hear last week.

 

I hope you have been able to get outside for walks and to look at the lovely nature all around you!  I went for my first walk in the countryside for a long time and could not believe all of the lovely things that I could see.  There were lots of flowers and the beautiful green leaves on the trees. I even saw a squirrel and some colourful birds.  Please send me any pictures you have of you out and about and write to me about what you have seen.

 

This week we are looking at time in Maths. We are doing Space in Topic and literacy too.  I have found some great science experiments that you can do at home - so a really fun week for us all.

 

I hope to speak to you this week.

Hello Pluto Class,

 

I hope that you are all well and happy and have been out in the sunshine.  

 

It seems like so long that I have seen you all and we have had fun together!  I know that some of you have been very busy at home and having great fun with your families.  It is a time that we can all spend some more time with our families which is very precious.

 

I am going to be calling most of you towards the end of this week and I hope I manage to get to speak to you.

 

Be Good and Kind   

 and 

 Stay Safe

I hope you are all happy and have been enjoying the lovely weather.

 

I haven't had many e mails or photographs from many of you for quite a while.  Please send in pictures of your work and tell me what you have been up to!

 

I am sorry that I haven't managed to talk to you personally on the phone over the last couple of weeks but I have been unwell and am only now getting a bit better.  I did not catch the virus so don't worry about that.

 

I will set you some work and play activities so that you can keep busy and be learning even though you are still at home.

 

I miss you very much and can't wait to see you all soon.

Mrs Hicks

There are lots of lessons on here that you can do each day:
As we are working on fractions this week you can use the sheets in the booklet above.  You can also think about fractions in every day situations.  Like when you cut fruit or pizza into equal parts which fractions can you find.  If you divide a loaf of bread into equal amounts how many fractions can you find?

 

We are now on week 3!  Week commencing 4th May 2020

 

Hi Pluto Class,

It was lovely to speak to so many of you last week.  I will be making more calls this week so please ask your adults to keep their phones switched on!

Another busy week ahead for all of us with lots of lovely learning and fun activities for you all.  

Thanks to those children who have sent in work and pictures of their home activities it would be great to have some more!

 

I have added on a link to the BBC Bitesize site this week as they are providing lessons to do every day.

Comprehension

Read my short story with your adults then answer the questions.

 

One day Mrs Hicks and Pluto class decided they would like to go on a trip.  “Where shall we go children?” Mrs Hicks asked.  “To the forest” the children squealed excitedly.  They decided to go to the Forest on a Friday and made a list of everything they would take.

When they got to the forest Mrs Hicks told the children they were going to go on a Treasure Hunt.  “Yay” the children cried and started to hunt for clues.  The first clue was behind a big hollow tree and it said “walk straight ahead for 10 steps then look to your right”  all the children lined up sensibly and then followed the instructions. Vibusin had the longest legs so he arrived first closely followed by Max who grabbed the clue and started reading. The second clue said “search until you find a tall stone standing all on it’s own”. The children raced off in all directions and then Alfie and Christopher called out “it’s over here”. De’Shane and Jayden came running over as fast as they could and Jayleigh joined them – “I have found the clue” said Olivia who had sneaked up when nobody was looking. She read it out and it said “Look up high into the trees, what is flying in the breeze?  “I can see it” shouted Sapphire “It’s a kite” Sarah squealed.  “There is some writing on the tail” Aila pointed out. It says “Go to the pond” shrieked Dorinda as all the children started to run. 

Anush and Arthuyan were the first to get to the pond and they started to look under the rocks and plants around the edge.  Amoya had a big smile on her face “I found it” she said laughing.  “Can I read it?” asked Erica and Amoya gave it to her because she is her best friend.  The clue said “Find Miss Howell and she will show you where to go!”. But Miss Howell had disappeared.  She’s playing hide n seek said Zubair we love playing that with her in the playground agreed Kian S.  All the children started to hunt for Miss Howell who could be heard quietly giggling behind a tree if you listened very carefully.  Ethan was the fastest runner but he couldn’t see Miss Howell anywhere.  “Where are you? Called Karina but Miss Howell kept quiet and didn’t even move!   Kian-George thought he heard a rustle in the bushes and called out to the others “Over here” but it wasn’t Miss Howell it was a little Robin that was feeding it’s babies in a nest.  “Just like our one in the garden” said Lael who always liked to watch the Robins.  The children searched high and low but they could not find Miss Howell until Angel spotted something shaking behind a big tree; “whats that?” Angel enquired looking very excited as he noticed a bit of scarf sticking out. He started to run towards it but his new friend Neymal got there first!  “It is Miss Howell” they screeched and it was! Miss Howell came out laughing and laughing “I was there all the time children” she giggled.  All the children danced around Miss Howell who told them the last clue.  “Now you need to find Mrs Hicks and see if you can find the big tablecloth – your prize is on there!”  “I know what it is” said Hailey but she didn’t tell anyone the secret.  All the children went running off to look around the clearing that Mrs Hicks had started the hunt from.  “She’s over here” said Sakina and ran up to Mrs Hicks and threw her arms around her.  “You found me” Mrs Hicks laughed and pointed to the table cloth. Now what do you think was on there?

 

I hope you liked our little story. Here are some questions for you to answer.

 

What do you think would be on our list for the trip?

 

Who found the first clue?

 

What was the answer to the clue that Olivia read out?

 

What day of the week did we go?

 

Where was Miss Howell hiding?

 

What do you think was on the table cloth at the end of the story?

Summer Term 1

Week 1 - 20/04/2020

Topic: Transportation

Welcome back Pluto Class,

I have been missing you and thinking about you having a lovely Easter break.  Did you get many easter eggs or go on an Easter egg hunt looking for pictures of eggs in windows as you went for your daily walk?  Please send me any photographs or pictures from your walks out and the things that you have been doing at home.  This term we will be working on types of Transport and I have put up some ideas in the Home Learning area of things that you could do.  If you have any ideas yourselves you could e mail them to me so that I can share them with your friends.  I look forward to seeing you as soon as I can.  Remember that the email address is pluto@kafed.org.uk. 

 

If you were at school we would be doing a lot of fun activities in Numeracy, Literacy, Art, Science, Topic, RE, and PE.  I am happy to say that you can continue doing this at home, as our new and exciting topic, 'Transport' will be very interesting to do at home with you family.

 

First you can start by trying to write a list of all the different types of transport that you know.

Next you can draw a picture and write about a type of transport that you have used for travelling.

Then you can read some books about different types of transport.

After that you can see if you know any songs about transport, eg The wheels on the bus.

Later you could make your own transport using boxes and other things that you can find around your house.

 

You can also continue with the ideas we had from last term as they will help to keep you happy and calm and teach you more about our wonderful world!

Here are some activities you could do with your child to help with their knowledge of the world and their wellbeing:

Make a 'Wonderful world' collage using materials, objects from the countryside or garden, drawings and cut out pictures.

Ask your child to write a poem or list of all the things that are wonderful about this world and publish this on your social media page or frame it.

Get your child to draw a picture of the things that make them happy and keep this by their bed to remind them of what a lovely world they live in.

Show your child where they live on google earth and let them explore the world for themselves on this wonderful website.

Encourage your child to watch David Attenboroughs' Blue planet or other real life nature programmes on TV or YouTube.

Help your child to build a bug hotel or hedgehog home to keep the animals safe and warm.

Make some healthy snacks like fruit kebabs, vegetable kebabs, fruit salad, stews or stir frys with your child.

Use leaves to make the digits of numbers up to 10 and stick these up.

Talk to your child about your own childhood and things that went well or wrong and how you and your family dealt with them.

Show your child that when you cut up apples or oranges or pizza it can be shown as fractions such as halves and quarters.

Encourage your child to read the time at least to the nearest hour.

If you have access to a garden encourage your child to make a 'happy space' for them to go and sit and relax.

Encourage your child to do fun yoga and meditation to help them keep balanced and calm.

Activities relating to other school subjects:

Number Detectives

Learn about number bonds and try to remember them.

Questions

Can you tell 3 and what makes 10?

4+_= 10

Continue doing these kinds of questions as often as possible.  If your child has difficulties use counters or objects to show them how to make the number bonds.

See the websites below for further information.

Please continue to help your children with their phonics work as this is so important for their continued learning and future achievements.

Phonics Activities

Write 3 words with each of these sounds 

ck, ai, air, ar, ch, ear, ee, er, igh, ng, oa, oi, oo, or, ow, qu, sh, th, ur, ure, v, w, x, y, z

Now use your words to make sentences.

Please make use of your Bug Club access.

We sometimes use phonics play (see link below) and this website has access to Lesson Plans if you log in as a Teacher.

At this time they are offering a free service for parents aiming to help their children continuing their learning at home.

Also Teach Your Monster to  Read. You can use this for free on your laptop or pc.  There is currently a charge for the app on mobile phones.

Reading/Spelling 

Practice reading and spelling these tricky words.

you, are, they, was, come, said, have, come, little, were, there, what when, out, people, their, called, Mr, some, looked, asked, could

Now use some of these words in sentences.

Then identify Canada, Brazil, China, Nigeria, Jamaica, Spain, UK, France and India.

 

Art and Craft

Draw or paint a picture of your family and friends.

Or

Make a picture or model of your choice.

 

Here are some activities that you can print out to do with your child while they are at home:

 

 

General Home Learning during school opening times:

In Year 1 children will be expected to read daily and write or draw about what they have read in their reading journal. Ideally your child’s input should be alongside comments from you at this stage of their learning.  Towards the end of this term they will also receive weekly spellings; these will be handed out on a Friday, and tested on the following Friday. Half-termly, children will also be given a project to complete based on their topic.

 

All children are expected to complete their homework and hand it in on time; please see the teacher if you have any questions or queries.

 

Planned Trips:

  • Local Parks and community areas
  • Hornimans Museum
  • Beckenham Place Park

Please could you let us know asap of your availability for trips as we always need parent support.

 

Literacy

Our focus in Literacy this term will be:

 

  • Writing list, labels, letter, invitations, etc..
  • Writing simple sentences.
  • Identifying characters, settings and plots.
  • Use correct punctuation.
  • Forming some of our letters carefully.

 

  • Using our focus text ‘Jake’s First Day’ we will be analysing how different characters feel and respond to their environment.

 

Grammar, Phonics and Spelling

We will be starting to focus on Phonics to prepare the children for the phonics screening in June 2019. 

 

Towards the end of the term the children will also have a list of spellings that they will need to know by the end of the year and we will be sending lists home each Friday for them to learn ready for short tests on the following Friday.  We will also be thinking about how we can extend our sentences.

 

Mathematics

We are continuing to use the Big Maths program which the children have loved, including daily CLIC sessions.

Big Maths is an interactive framework which allows the children to engage with activities at school, and at home. We will be supporting the learning of mental maths skills, particularly counting in 2’s, identifying number bonds and ordering numbers.
