Summer Home Learning

Hi Year 1!

Well done! You have made it though Year 1, and even though this year has been a bit different to others, you have done so well and we are incredibly proud of you.

Here is your work for the rest of the summer – you have projects that last two weeks and take you all the way through the summer. There will not be any Purple Mash blogs, but if you are worried about anything and you want to tell a grown up in school, you can look here (https://www.harrygoslingprimary.co.uk/pupils/keeping-safe) for how to do that.

We would love you to keep all the project work you do and bring it into school in September so we can see your amazing work!

We know how hard you have all worked and, as we always tell you, you really are wonderful children. We hope you have a safe and fun holiday, looking after each other and being a good team with your families.

We will continue to be thinking of you, and wish you a very happy summer holiday!

Byeeeee!

Week 1 and 2: 20.07.20  - 31.07.20

Be a Masterchef!

Maths and English

We know from our story in English that the cheeky little brown mouse told the Gruffalo that their favourite food was Gruffalo Crumble! Can you try and make a Gruffalo crumble at home? You could even try and make a Gruffalo fruit salad, spaghetti or curry!

Whatever you decide to make, we would like you to write a recipe. This means writing down all the ingredients and their measurements (for example, 125 grams of butter). You will also needs to write a list of instructions, for example,

1) Measure the butter.

2) Put it in a bowl and melt it in the microwave.

If you manage to make one recipe, why not try making another?

Phonics

Here are your phonics to practise this week. Can you use them to make alien words?

HFWs

See if you can join in with Jess as she says the High Frequency Words?

Choose 5 and use them to make your own sentences with them.

 

All About Me

What is your favourite food? Perhaps you have a few favourites! If you were to be a piece of fruit for a day, what would you be?

Have a look at these pictures – Giuseppe Arcimboldo is an artist who creates self-portraits out of fruit! Do you think you could do the same?

Family Homework

Can you create a recipe book of all your family favourite meals?

 

If I finish my learning

Discussion Time: What did your grown-ups eat when they were little? Did they eat different food to what you eat now? Why is that? What are your grown ups’ favourite foods?

 

Summer Reading Challenge

The Ideas Store are running their ‘Summer Reading Challenge’ again but will be little bit different this year. Look at their YouTube video and the website for more information:

 

 

Weeks 3 and 4: 03.08.20 – 14.08.20

Be a Scientist!

Maths

For this fortnight, we are going to be comparing length! Can you remember what it means when we compare things? This means that we are looking at how things are the same, similar and different.

Can you compare your arms with your grown ups’ arms? Whose arm is longer? Whose arm I shorter?

If you compare with more than one other person, you can work out who has the longest and who has the shortest. Can you make some predictions about who will have the longest and shortest?

You can do the same with legs, fingers, toes – the list goes on!

 

English

Can you remember all of the creatures in The Gruffalo?

We would like you to write a report on the deep dark wood! This is not a story – a report is information to share with others so they can learn what you know.

To write a report about the deep dark wood, you can use these titles and subtitles. You can describe the deep dark wood as your introduction. You can then write descriptions for each creature. You might like to plan and think about what you will write before you start! Remember, you can change your work as you go over it and mistake or improvements to make.

 

Introduction

 

Little Brown Mouse

 

Owl

 

Fox

 

Snake

 

Gruffalo

All About Me

Can you go for a walk in your local area and look for some plants? Even grass!

You can draw what you find, write a description, even make a model of it.

 

Family Homework

Who can make the safest boat? Each member of your family should design and make a boat and then test them. Which boat is the most successful? Which boat holds the most cargo before it sinks?  Then see who can get their boat to travel across the water fastest!

If I finish my learning

Sometimes, we can measure the spaces around us using things other than rulers.

Can you measure things in your house using your feet? For example, Santosh took steps from one end of Green Class to the other. She made sure her feet were next to each other, heel to toe. Green Class was 22 feet long!

Perhaps you can measure things with your fingers or hands?

You can write down all of your findings – we would love to see them in September!

Be an Explorer!

Maths

For the next two weeks, you are going to be explorers. In maths, we would like you to explore time and shape.

Time

How long does it take you to do these things? Can you record your answers?

  • Brush your teeth =
  • Walk to Tesco =
  • Eat breakfast =
  • Sleep at night =
  • Do 20 star jumps =

Over the next week, can you time and write down how long it takes you to do different activities? (E.g. walk to the park, bake cookies, read a book). This is a nice opportunity to practise telling the time with your grown-ups.

Shape

Have a look at the picture of flags. Can you go on a flag hunt to spot shapes? What shapes can you see?

Can you draw a picture of your favourite flag? What shapes does is show? Can you label the shapes?

Writing

Keith lives in Australia on the other side of the world and he has now returned to see his family and friends! What can you remember about Australia?

Can you make and write a Keith a postcard to tell him all the fun things you have been getting up to over the summer? He would love to hear from you. You could draw a picture of London, your home or any exciting places you have visited. Then on the other side, write him a letter to tell him what you have been doing and how you are. Have a look at the example postcard below.
