Following on from the previous three days we would like you to finish off this work by adding some information about:

  • What job you would like to do when you are older
  • Your favourite story
  • Some facts about your new class animal - Butterfly, Glow Worm, Ladybird

Maths:

Your maths today is to make a treat for you and your family. Find and follow your favourite recipe such as jam tarts, muffins, gingerbread people, shortcake, Victoria sponge etc. Take care when measuring the ingredients and make sure you keep an eye on the time.

Music:

Log on to Charanga using the link below.

  • Listen to the song 'I feel good'. Do you like it? How does it make you feel? Dance to the beat.
  • Watch the short clip 'Finding out about Music' - pitch. This is a musical term you will be using in Term 1.
  • Watch and learn the song 'In the Big Blue Sea' (see below). This is a very repetitive song so see if you can sing along. You can practise your counting too!

  • Finally, back on Charanga, enjoy singing along to 'Big Bear Funk'. 

Finish the day with this story.

 

Wednesday 21st July 2021

Year 1 work:

Following on from the work set on Monday and Tuesday, today we would like you to add some information about:

  • Any pets you may have or want to have
  • Your favourite time of year
  • Your favourite foods
  • Your favourite superhero

It would be great to add some drawings to go with your information.

Maths:

Make up a target game, for example get 'ten green bottles' lined up outside and throw a wet sponge at them. Try and knock down different amounts, saying how many are standing and how many have been knocked over. 

If it is really hot, ask a grown up to throw a wet sponge at you ten times. How many splat you? How many can you dodge? Repeat...but this time you aim at the grown up. Have fun!

PE:

Log on to real PE at home by clicking on the link below. Click on the theme 'cat' and complete the cat skills. If you get to green skills, you could use that wet sponge again!

Watch the lessons for your group then go outside and write lots of different sounds as targets (you could use chalks, post it notes, paper etc). Then get a squeezy bottle and squirt water at the sounds needed to make each word, set by your grown up. You get bonus points if you can secretly stick a sound to the back of your grown up and give it a squirt as well. Any photos will be most welcome!

Mrs Bayley has set the music lesson this week.

Hello Starfish and Sea Turtles, I hope you are having a good week so far and enjoying the home learning. Music this afternoon is on Charanga (link below). You will need to login with your username and password which are in your reading diaries. Once logged in you will see today's lesson.

Charanga: Music

The first thing I would like you to do is to listen to the piece of music 'Fantasia on a Theme'. Do you like the music? Why? What does it remind you of? Does it have a fast or slow beat? What instruments can you hear?

Next, listen to Frogs Legs and Dragons Teeth. This is a live concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London.  What instruments can you see? Can you spot the accordion? Perhaps you might like to dance along to this!

Now return to Charanga and under the sections Review Autumn 1 and 2 and Spring 1 and 2, choose some of the nursery rhymes you like the best and sing along! Have a lovely day!

Before the story have a go at some more yoga positions.

Finish the day with this story.
