Summer 1 Home Learning Week 4

Another week gone! Week eight in lockdown - Is it me or are these weeks flying by? I can't believe we are in May.

Frank had his first birthday in April - crazy crazy crazy!

I hope you and your families are well and enjoyed the bank holiday and celebrated VE day too! Mrs Wardell and I have uploaded more work for you all below.
Please do not feel you have to complete all but it would be good if you dipped in and out of some activities to keep your brain working and to keep practising skills you have learnt this year.
Practise,practise,practise is the key to success!
PS Don't forget to keep practising your Word Mountains.
RM Maths and TT Rockstars are great resources too!

SPAG Lesson
Here is another stand alone SPAG lesson focusing on the 'ing' suffix.    (It goes at the end of verbs to change the tense.)
When adding 'ing' it is happening now.
Root word:    hop
Present Tense/ Happening now 
I am hopping.
Past Tense/ Already happened 
Yesterday I hopped . 
Activity to complete at home for suffix 'ing'
  • Ask a grown up to write verbs on pieces of paper/ cards. 
  • spread them all out on the floor.
  • Then together, on separate pieces of paper write the verb again but with the 'ing' suffix.
  • Spread them out on the floor
  • Now, 'play pairs' with your grown up.
  • When you get the pair you have to act out the verb because 'ing' means you're doing it now!
  • if your partner doesn't do the verb you win the pair!
 Activity 2
  • If your grown up says the root word (a verb e.g jump) can you write it in the past tense (-ed suffix) and present tense (-ing suffix)
Then write it in a sentence?
English - Task  1
This week we would like you to  focus on Traditional Tales.
 We would like you to explore traditional tales at home
  • What traditional tales do you know?
    Discuss this with your grown up at home -How many stories can you think of?

  • Can you see a pattern in the traditional tales?-
    What is the same in all of the them? 
Parents these are the features you can discuss with your child.
  • Villian/Baddy 
  • Problem 
  • Always has a happy ending 
  • Main character is saved 
  • Hero - who is it?
  • Set in a familiar place 
Task 2
Choose a Traditional Tale that you would like to focus on this week- here are few to help you.
  • The Three Little Pigs 
  • Goldilocks and the Three Bears
  • Rapunzel 
  • Three Billy Goats Gruff 
  • Little Red Riding Hood
If we were at school, our focus would have been Rapunzel but please feel to focus on your preferred one.
Read the story either on youtube or a book you may have at home.
Can your child identity:
  • Main characters
  • Villian
  • Setting 
  • Hero
  • Explain the sequence of events in the story - a good way to do this is through pictures. Have 8 boxes on a piece of paper and let your child create a story map and colour it in.
Task 3 
Make the main character out of household materials. 
Enjoy this task and engage in lots of descriptive language to describe them. (Adjectives)
e.g Goldilocks has long blonde hair 
The wolf has sharp pointy teeth.
Using your knowledge of adjectives -  Can you think of words that describe the character?
You will need to use these adjectives when retelling the story.

Task 4
By the end of year 1 children are required to use some forms of punctuation accurately. 
In this term at school, we would really focus on the use of full stops, capital letters, exclamation marks and questions marks.
. ? ! 
Watch the video on youtube about punctuation or talk to your child when we might use . ? !                                                                (There are several links below for you to watch)
  • Full stops are used for a statement
  • Questions marks are used when we want to find out information. A Question often starts with  Who    What    Where    When    Why    How    Did    Can    Are 
  • Exclamation marks are used when we want to emphasize something (Often used when someone is happy,sad or shocked/surprised.) 
There is a paper task below for you to complete. There are a series of pictures and you are asked to look at the picture and write:
  • 2 Questions about the picture
  • 2 Exclamations about the picture
  • 2 Statements about the picture.
Go through it with your child and complete one together and see if they can have a go independently after. 
Alternatively, you can look at a picture from your traditional tale book.
  • Picture a picture at random
Then write:
  • 2 Questions 
  • 2 Exclamations 
  • 2 Statements 
  • Make sure your child uses the punctuation accurately.
