Welcome to Class 1S's Web Page!

HOME LEARNING:

 

TO 1S PARENTS:

This is where you will find the daily home learning, uploaded by 9am each day. If you have any questions, please email me at 1S@fairhaven.dudley.sch.uk. This is where you can also send me any pieces of work and photographs, which would be lovely to see! Please keep in touch!

 

- From Miss Stephens.

A note about daily reading:

Please continue to engage with daily reading. This can be any book from home, or you can select an e-book from the Oxford Owl website. You will need to make a free account but then you have access to lots of resources.

 

I have also added a link to a story time Youtube channel where someone else can read a story to you - if you fancy a change!

Phonics

Please find your video lesson for phonics below. Today is all about the alternative pronunciation of the letter 'e'.

Remember phonicsplay.com is a free resource for you to use to support your phonics learning even further. Picnic on Pluto is a game that focuses on reading real and alien. The Buried Treasure and Dragons Den games are also very similar, take your pick!

If you would like an extra challenge, there is a sentence substitution game. Find both linked below!

English

You will find your English video lesson linked below. Today you will be starting to write your wonderful stories. I am so looking forward to reading them!

Maths

Please find your Maths video lesson linked below. Today you are looking at adding by making 10 first.

There is no worksheet today so please engage with the activities in the video. The first activity involves you making the number bonds to 10, which you may want to play with a grown up or sibling, drawing counters onto a tens frame. It helps to use 2 different colours.

The second activity is about adding 2 different numbers together, but making ten first to make your calculation easier. For example, 9 + 6 becomes 10 + 5. This is much clearer when using a tens frame.

I have attached some blank tens frames for you to use to practise these activities. 

Topic (History/Geography)

Today we are continuing to investigate why the Great Fire spread so quickly and why it stayed alight for so long. Please read slide 3 of the attached PowerPoint below. There are then two maps linked below. Map 1 details the spread of the fire and the days different parts of London were affected. Map 2 details the area of London that was destroyed. You may recognise some of the landmarks. Write some sentences about what the maps show us. 

15/1/21

 

Phonics

Please find your video lesson from Letters and Sounds linked below. We are carrying on looking at alternative pronunciations - today looking at the 2 different sounds the letter 'a' can make.

English

Please find your next English video lesson below. First, you will be doing a spelling activity looking at when we add 's' or 'es' to words to make them plural. Then, you will be making a start on writing the story you have already been working so hard on. Please find the 'boxing up' activity you worked on in a previous lesson to help you write your sentences. 

Maths

Please find your video lesson for Maths linked below. Today is all about using and finding number bonds. You've already had a little bit of practise with this the past few days, so hopefully now you can tell me all your number bonds to 20.

Then can you please complete the attached worksheet. Remember, if you know your number bonds to 10, you can complete this challenge. For example, I know 6 + 4 = 10, so 16 + 4 = 20. Can you see how I know that? Give it your best shot! 

Topic (History)

Please find a link below that provides information on The Great Fire of London. It is a pre recorded stream.  The Museum of London is a free museum, so if you do ever get chance to visit it is well worth it! This link below provides information on the cause of the fire and the reasons why it spread so quickly.

 

Then please show me what you have learned, by telling the story of the fire in drawings. Do you remember the reasons why the fire got so bad? Draw an image of each one you can think of.They could be simple symbols or whole scenes. Can you draw more than three?

PE

Today’s PE session focuses on throwing for accuracy looking at two-handed and one-handed throws. Please click the link below and watch the video for lesson 3 – Throwing for accuracy. All the equipment for today’s lesson can be found in the house, there is no special PE equipment required. You might want to complete this lesson outside.

Phonics

Today's phonics lesson is all about the alternative pronunciation of the letter 'o'. Please find your video lesson linked below from Letters and Sounds. 

English

Please find your video lesson for English linked below. Today you will be doing a reading exercise and exploring how the writer creates mood. 

Maths

Please find your video lesson for Maths linked below. Today you are continuing to look at using number bonds to solve addition problems. 

Then please complete your worksheet. It's the same worksheet from yesterday, you just need to complete questions 5 and 6 today.

If you would like an extra challenge - can you find me all the number bonds to 20? How can you use the number bonds to 10 to help find these?

Topic

Have you heard of London? Have you ever visited London? Can you please do some research and find out some facts about London, for example, where it is, how big it is, etc. 

 

Please find below some slides giving you some information about London. There is also a map of the UK which you can print off and show where London is. Can you please also do this with Wordsley? I have added a link to Google Maps which may help you do this.

Phonics

We are now progressing even further into phase 5 and starting to look at alternative pronunciations. Today is all about the different sound the letter 'u' can make. Please click on the following link for your video lesson from Letters and Sounds. Your sentence reading and writing practise is included in these video lessons. 

English

Please click on the following link for your video English lesson. Today you will be 'boxing up' your very own story. 

Maths

Please click the following link to your video lesson for maths today. You will be learning how to use number bonds to add.

Then please complete the following attached worksheet. You only need to complete questions 1-4 on the worksheet. Questions 5 and 6 are for tomorrow's lesson.

Computing

Over the next couple of weeks we will be creating a PowerPoint based on the Great Fire of London. Before we do this, we need to be aware of internet safety and how important it is. Please click the link below and read, with an adult, the information on each page about how to stay safe online.

PE

Today we are doing another PE session, this time focusing on footwork patterns to develop agility, balance and coordination. Please click the link below and watch the video for lesson 2 – footwork patterns. This lesson looks at speed walking, side stepping, pivoting and lunges. There is no PE equipment necessary for this lesson but it might be a good idea to complete the lesson outside after watching the video.

Phonics

Today your new sound is the split digraph e-e. Please look at the following Mr Thorne video:

and practise writing some e-e words such as theme, these, delete, concrete, extreme, complete.

You can then practise using e-e words in the following sentence: You need to complete your phonics work.

English

Today's English lesson is all about opinions. After a spelling task, you will be learning all about what an opinion is, and how to form your own opinion after a reading task. Please click the link below:

Maths

Today you are continuing your learning about counting on, and using this to solve addition problems. As you will see in the video, you can use pictures to help you count on, or a number line. Please find the teaching slides here:

Then please complete the following worksheet:

RE 

For RE, we are starting a new topic all about Rites of Passage. These are just special times that have happened in your life. Please find a PowerPoint attached for further learning and discussion points. Can you remember a special event in your life? It could be your first day at school, when you learned to ride a bike, when someone in your family was born, or when you went to a wedding. Maybe (with the help of a grown up) you could find a photograph of this event, or you can draw a picture. Please include some sentences explaining what the event is and why it is special to you.

PSHE

For PSHE this week we want to make sure you are looking after your mental wellbeing in these strange times. Have a think about how you are feeling today. It’s okay to be a bit sad and worried – we will try and support you as much as we can, even though we are at home. It might be a nice idea to start some sort of ‘Mood Journal’ at home that you update daily, as writing things down can make us feel better! Only share these with us if you feel comfortable. These activities are just for you and to make sure you are okay.

 

Please find some extra coping strategies linked below. There is a video of a breathing exercise to help you feel calm, and an Art Box game where you can draw what you like in order to express your feelings. 

11/1/21

 

Phonics

Today your new sound is the split digraph u-e sound.

Please have a look at the following Geraldine video:

and practise writing some u-e words such as rude, cube, prune, glute, huge.

You can then practise using u-e words in the following sentence: This prune has a huge stone. 

 

English

Today's English lesson is something we have not yet done in school. It's all about using the word 'but' as a way of extending your sentence writing! This can be very tricky but give it your best shot. I'm looking forward to reading your sentences. Please click the link below for your lesson:

Maths

Today we are starting a new module in maths, all about addition and subtraction within 20. Your first lesson is adding by counting on. 

Here is the video of the teaching slides:

There is no worksheet today - just please engage with the activities in the video. There are some fun games for you to try out, all about counting on to find the answer to an addition problem. We haven't done addition in a little while, so this is a great way to warm those brains up and have a practise before I give you a worksheet tomorrow. 

You will need to make your own number cards (unless you already have some) - just write the numbers 0-20 on bits of paper. You can then use an random dice generator like this one: https://www.online-stopwatch.com/chance-games/roll-a-dice/ to practise counting on!

Science

Use the link below to recap what we learnt last week, about what animals need to survive. Then draw your favourite animal and describe what food it needs to eat to survive, what shelter it requires and how it breathes. I'm looking forward to seeing your drawings!

Also please remember to let me know if you spotted any seasonal changes this weekend, and if you saw any wildlife out and about this time of year!

A Science Update...

I went on a walk yesterday and saw lots of signs of winter. These are just some of the pictures I took while walking around a lake. Can you see how some of the lake has frozen? The seagulls are standing on the ice!

What's it like where you live? Have you seen any different signs of winter? For example, did you have snow today? Because I didn't and I'm a bit jealous. What do you think the animals are doing while it's this cold outside? As you can see in my pictures there were lots of birds still out and about. I wonder why they don't get cold.

 

Go on a mindful walk this weekend, taking in your surroundings, noticing what you see, hear and feel. Let me know if you spot any signs of winter, and/or any wildlife. Maybe you could ask someone about how the animals are dealing with the cold, or ask our old friend Google (Like I had to). If you take any pictures, please send them to me, I'd love to see!

 

Most importantly, enjoy yourself this weekend. You've done really well this first week home learning. Stay safe and take care.

Please do some sentence writing practise with the following sentence:  It will amaze me if you escape from the maze.

English:

Please continue your work on the Magic Paintbrush. Today you will be exploring how to create mood in your stories, so please have access to the story map you created yesterday. You will need to practise reading your stories out loud, with expression in your voice and faces, so find a grown up to practise on! I wish I could see you reading them aloud! Please click on the following link and select Lesson 3: 

Maths:

Today's maths work is all about ordering groups of objects and numbers, from smallest to greatest, or sometimes greatest to smallest! Here is a video that runs through the teaching slides.

Order groups of objects

Please find attached below the worksheet for this lesson. 

 

There is also a second worksheet, called ordering numbers. Parents please don't feel like this is absolutely necessary to complete - I just know some of the brain boxes in 1S may want to give this extra challenge a go! 

Topic (History)

Today we are going to look at what we know about The Great Fire of London. 

Below are a variety of activities to do with your child to extend their knowledge about this. You may choose to do one of the activities or all of them. There are video links, powerpoints and worksheets below.  Please find out about Samuel Pepys and write some sentences about him.
