    Challenge Time

    • Lets dig deeper…. Can you explain what you have learnt this week?

     

    Maths - Year 1

    • First, watch this Number Blocks video on halving.
    • Next, get ready for some active maths! Make number cards of all the even numbers between 2 and 30. Have some counters, pebbles, dried pasta even (though I wary that this may be precious in your house at present, it is in mine!). These concrete objects will help you count out halves of numbers.
    • Shuffle the cards and scatter them around the activity space. 
    • Run and pick a card at random. As quickly as you can, come back, say and write down half of the number you picked. You may need to count out the number of objects and then sort them into two groups to find half. Continue playing until you have used up all the cards.

     

     

     

    Art

    • Have a look at different textures that you might find in and around your house. Firstly, go around and feel as many different textures as you can, describing them to an adult using words such as rough, smooth, bumpy etc
    • Then, with some paper and wax crayons, make some rubbings of some interesting textures that you find. Try and find some different and interesting textures as they will make the best rubbings, such as bricks, patio floor, tree bark, wooden fence etc. Can an adult guess which rubbing is of which texture?
    • Now collect some leaves and have a go at creating a leaf rubbing picture just like in this video. Think carefully about which colours you will use to create the best effects

     

    P.E.

    • Why not practise some fun yoga and listen to a story at the same time with Cosmic Yoga, there are loads of different stories to choose from. Check out their website or look on their YouTube site for some great videos
    • Also check out the Joe Wicks: body coach channel with lots of interesting work out videos. Plus at 9am every weekday Joe will be live streaming a kids P.E. lesson, so don't forget to tune in
    • Check out our fabulous Highfield Primary P.E. and Sports page for more great sporting ideas

     

    Computing

    The weekly computing challenge will be to send an email to class2@highfield-primary.trafford.sch.uk

    Talk to your child/children about the many ways that you can communicate. You might want to take it further and create a bullet point list or a mind map; you may even want to discuss the pros and cons of the different forms of communication

    This will lead onto the discussion of what an email is and why you might use them. Explain to your child/children that you are allowed to set up an email account when you are a teenager

    Tell your child/children that school have set up a special email account that parents/carers can use to communicate to teachers and that you will help them to write an email. Children - Think about the message you want to communicate and once you have impressed your grown-up they may even show you how to send an attachment!

    • Today we will be focusing on capital letters. Where do capital letters go in a sentence? Is it just at the start of every line? Talk about this with an adult and maybe look in your reading book, can you point out the capital letters. Listen to this fun hip hop granny song about punctuation to refresh yourself
    • Play this fun capital letters game here. Remember to read each sentence out loud carefully so that you don't make any mistakes
    • Write 5 super sentences about what your bedroom looks like. Try to remember to put in your capital letters without an adult needing to remind you. Remember, names and places have capital letters at the start as well. Once you are done, check through your work to make sure you didn't miss any out.

    • Build your own bear hunt journeys using things in your garden and repeat the patterned language from the story (Eg: 'Squelch, squerch and Stumble trip) as you travel through them. You might even invent language patterns of your own! 

    Maths - Year 1

    • Last week you looked at 1 more than a number, toady we will look at 1 less than a number. How is this different from 1 more? What does 1 less mean, does the answer get bigger or smaller? Use splat square like you did last week but this time looking at 1 less than a number
    • Ask your adult to write you a list of numbers between 1 and 100. Without using a hundred square or number line can you work out what is going to be 1 less than each of these numbers. Adults: note that the more challenging numbers are higher numbers, or any that end with a 0. Children: think about what strategies you can use to help you work the answer out if you are stuck.
    • Show off what you have learned with this fun interactive song

    Tuesday

    English - Reception

    • Warm up with the Flashcard Speed Trial  game, pressing the tick if your child correctly says the sound and a cross if they make a mistake

    English - Year 1

    • This week we are going to be looking at heroes and villains and creating our own comic strip. Today we are going to look at our hero. What is a hero? Discuss with an adult some heroes you might know, these could be from books, comics, films or in real life. What do they all have in common? 
    • Create your own hero. On a piece of paper draw your hero, thinking carefully about what he or she might look like and what they might be wearing. Around the edge of your paper write as many adjectives as you can to describe your hero. Remember, adjectives are describing words, and can be used to describe what someone looks like, sounds like, what they are wearing or what their personality is like. Try and think of as many as you can for each of those categories. You do not need to write sentences, just words or short phrases such as 'brown, curly hair' or 'kind'
    • At the top of the paper give your hero a cool name that resembles the character. Remember: names always start with a capital letter because they are a proper noun

    Phonics: 

    • Warm up with the Flashcard Speed Trial  game, pressing the tick if your child correctly says the sound and a cross if they make a mistake
    • Read a phonics comic of the correct level for your child and discuss any new sounds or words they might have come across

     

    Maths - Reception

    • Use objects from around your house (including outdoors) such as vegetables, fruit,  pencils, plastic cups, sticks, leaves, dominoes, dice to make repeating patterns. Show your adult. Talk through the patterns with them and see if you have had any wobbles. If you have, can you correct it? How did you notice the wobble and how did you correct it?

    Maths - Year 1

    • We have looked at one more and one less separately, let's now look at them together and see what you have learned. Remind yourself by telling an adult what one more and one less means and give them some examples
    • Split your page into 3 sections, label the middle section 'number', the left hand section 'one less' and the right hand section 'one more'. Ask an adult to say a number for you to write in the 'number' column then fill in what is one more and less than this. If you are finding this tricky then start by using a number line or a hundred square to help you and then try without it. Start with numbers 0-20, then increase up to 50, and finally up to 100. Make it more exciting by using this random number wheel to choose the numbers
    • Show off what you have learned with this fun helicopter game

     

    Wednesday

    English - Reception

    • Play the Dragon’s Den game. This is a different variation of Picnic on Pluto. Can you beat your previous score?
    • Write out all of the letters of the alphabet in lowercase on lined paper, thinking carefully about where the letters start and end, how large they should be and whether they are an ascender or descender. Have your 4 focus letters improved since last week?
    • Choose 4 more letters that you can improve as well as you have with your first four. Practise them with this game. Firstly, click on 'follow' so that you can see how the letter is supposed to be formed then click on 'press and follow' to follow this with your finger. Finally click on 'free draw' to have a go drawing the letter yourself
    • Practise today's focus letters on lined paper until you reach the end of the line. Can you see any improvement? Which one is your best letter? Why?

    English - Year 1

    • Yesterday we created our hero, today we are going to create our villain! What is a villain, can you think of any other words people might call them e.g baddie. Which villains can you think of? Again these could be from stories, comics or films. What do they all have in common, what makes them a villain?
    • On a new piece of paper draw your villain. Think carefully about how they would be different from your hero. Would they be human or maybe a monster or an alien? What sort of colours and clothes do villains often wear? Use some pictures from stories and films to help you if you are stuck. Just like we did with our hero, write as many adjectives as you can on your paper to describe your villain, thinking carefully about how these adjectives would be different from your hero's. Do you have any adjectives that are the same? Why is this?
    • At the top of your paper give your villain a wickedly evil name, remembering as always, your capital letter as it is a proper noun

    Phonics:

    • Warm up with Tricky Word Trucks looking at HFW (high frequency words). Ensure that you select the correct level for your child
    • Play the Picnic on Pluto  game focusing on reading words and deciding if they are real or nonsense words. Can you beat your previous score?

     

    Maths - Reception

    • If you have playdough at home, use 3-D shapes to press patterns into the dough. Can you tell your adult which shapes you used? You can also make patterns on the dough using loose parts such as shells, stones, beads or buttons.
    • If you don't have any playdough but would like to make a quick and easy batch, click here. It's fun to do together and remember to talk about the measurements and steps of the recipe, including the numbered instructions. There are maths links everywhere! :)
    • If you don't want to use playdough, why don't you cut out shapes, using coloured paper if you have it (or colour them in!) and create simple repeating patterns that way. Talk through the patterns with them and see if you have had any wobbles. If you have, can you correct it? How did you notice the wobble and how did you correct it?

    Maths - Year 1

    • Today we are going to be looking at 10 more. This sounds tricky but isn't really as long as you remember our work on partitioning. Use splat square to work out what is 10 more than 24. How is the answer different from 24? It has one more 10 in the tens column. Write the two numbers out and write T and O over the tens and ones to help you see this. Repeat this with another number, how does it change? Every time we add 10 more it adds one more in the tens column, but doesn't change the ones. Repeat this until you feel comfortable adding 10 more to a number, using splat square to help you if you need it

    • Now we are going to imagine that your hero and villain meet up and have a conversation. In comic books these are done using speech bubbles. Ask an adult to draw some speech bubbles for you or print some off from the computer. First, imagine that you are the hero. What would he say to the villain in your comic? Write this on your speech bubble and place it near to the mouth of your hero.
    • Now you have to write what the villain would say back to the hero. Think about what your hero said and make your villain's response relates. Place this completed bubble next to your villain.
    • Repeat this process several times until your have a conversation going on between your two characters. Even though this is in a speech bubble please remember what all super sentences need- capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and good letter formation. Don't get rid of these speech bubbles, you will need them tomorrow to make your comic.

    • Today we will focus on more complex patterns. An example of this is the game 'duck, duck, goose'. Repeating the same word twice and then using a different word makes this pattern more complex than simply 'duck, goose'. Perhaps there are enough people in your household to play this fun game?
    • Join in with this complex patterns video
    • Show the children this AB pattern and this similar AAB pattern and ask them to tell you what they notice. What is the same and what is different?

    • What is different this time?

    Maths - Year 1

    • Now we are going to look at 10 less than a number, don't worry - this is very similar to 10 more than. This time use splat square or a hundred square to find what is 10 less than the number 47. What do you notice this time about the answer, has it got bigger or smaller? What has happened to the tens and ones columns? You should have noticed that this time it has got smaller by 1 lot of 10. Repeat this with lots more numbers until you feel confident that you can do 10 less without needing to count it on the hundred square.
