  • 19-05-2020 - Mrs LazenbyHi Riley, Thank you for your message. I got the photo of your super work on WW1 from your mummy and have put it in our gallery. I'm afraid that Chapter 6 has disappeared! I think the Wicked Witch of the West has something to do with it! Hopefully you can pick it up from Chapter 7.
  • 19-05-2020 - RileyHi Mrs Lazenby I hope you are well. We tried to send you some pictures of the work I have been doing but my mum's email isn't working. I was enjoying the Wizard of Oz but we couldn't see chapter six. I hope to see you soon.

 As we are a church school, it is important that we provide a weekly opportunity 
for prayer and reflection. Our Prayer this week is 'The Collect'.

 

O lord,

from whom all good things do come:

Grant to us your humble servants,

that by your holy inspiration we may think those that be good,

and by your merciful guiding may perform the same;

Through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen.

 The prayer is all about following God's good example and trying to do good things. 

 

What ‘good’ things can you do this week to please God? To please your parents and family?

As promised, here is the final chapter of 'The Magic Sword'. Read it and see if your predictions for how the story would end were right!  You could write a story recount or draw a story map to show the main events.


The Magic Sword

   Chapter Six

“Now then, Arthur, tell us, how did you pull the sword out?” asked Sir Ector.

“It was easy,” said Arthur. I just pulled…like this!”

All the knights kneeled down. Arthur could not understand why. And then, in a blaze of light, Merlin appeared.

“Arthur,” he said gently, “Your true father was a king, and your mother was a princess. But I knew you were not safe, because there were so many battles around their castle. So I took you to live with Sir Ector until the time was right for you to be king. And that time is now.”

He turned to the knights and said. “Here before you stands your true king- Arthur Pendragon!” Everyone cheered. Britain had a new king. Perhaps there would be no more battles.

Merlin returned to his little house in the forest. At last he could rest, knowing that King Arthur would be a good and kind king. Just as he had taught him to be.

 

Friday 1st May

Good morning, I hope you are all well. Are you ready to read the next chapter in The Magic Sword? Maths- lesson 3- find a quarter (part 2) Don't forget to check out BBC Bitesize Year One or Year Two for some other activities.

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying our work this week. Today we are going to fnd out what happens in chaper 3 of our story. One of the RIC questions is 'predict'. We have looked at these types of questions a few times in class. To answer a predict question, you have to make a sensible guess about what will happen in the story based on what has happened so far.

You can then a have a try at putting  some words in alphabetical order or write a letter to The National Knight's Organisation to ask them if you can become a knight. 

Some of you have been following the online art tutorials and have done some super drawings. Have a look at Sophia's wizard in our gallery. Today you can have a try at drawing a magical sword.http://youtu.be/Xi4G6LVhy5M

In maths today we are moving on to finding a quarter. Please find this activity on the White Rose Home Learning site.http://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/   lesson 2- find a quarter (1)

Have a lovely day. 
Good morning,
Today we are continuing with our new text 'The Magic Sword'.  Try to answer the questions using full sentences if you can. 
The young boy in the story wants to be a knight. Have a look at the powerpoint that tells you all about a knight's armour. Then you can have a try at labelling a knight. You may even want to follow the instructions on youtube and draw your own knight.http://youtu.be/Xl1O0uFafCk

Phonics- the word 'knight' has the 'kn' sound at the beginning. Remember that we don't voice the 'k'. Can you think of any other words that have the 'kn' spelling at the beginning? Write them in down in a list and remember to always use your best handwriting! Or have a try at the 'kn' activity sheet.

You might want to use some of the writing frames to write a recount of your favourite traditional tale. You could even have a try at writing your own. You could use the word mat to help you choose some super vocabulary. There is also a guessing game where you have try to guess the name of the story by using the emojis. I will play this too and share my answers with you later on.... For maths please watch White Rose home learning Summer Term 1 Day 3. Complete the flashback activity and then the sharing into equal group sheet. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ Have a lovely day.

Tuesday 21st April

Morning everyone, Our Traditional Tale today is 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. There is a story power point, a RIC text with some questions to answer and character description activity to try. I know that lots of you like to draw- I wonder who can scare me with a super troll picture? For maths, there is a 2D shape naming activity. Can you go on a shape hunt around your home or garden and collect some real life examples of 3D shapes? For maths there is the daily mental maths online activity and NUMBOTS for those of you who have requested your usernames and passwords. You might want to check out today's BBC bite size activities too! Try to get some fresh air too- it's going to be a nice and sunny today. Have a lovely day, Mrs Lazenby

Monday 20th April

This week we are going to be reading some Traditional Tales. I'm sure that many of you will know them already. Today our story is 'The Gingerbread Man'. The RIC is quite long so you may want to do it in two parts with a little rest in the middle- rather than all in one go! I hope you enjoy it. Mrs L

Phonics Friday!

Good morning. Today your tasks are all about phonics. Watch the phase 5 sound power point. Can you read the sounds? Are you saying them carefully? Practise any that you are unsure of.

Can you be super spotters and read the tiny tricky words that are hiding in the wildlife park?

Read the ‘au’ phoneme spotter story and answer the questions.

Have a try at writing the phase 5 sentences with the correct punctuation. Think carefully about where capital letters and full stops are needed.

EASTER BREAK
As the Easter holiday is due to start on Monday, I will not be sharing 'work' during this time.  However, on Monday I will be sharing some ideas of fun activities that you may choose to do. I will be checking the web page and my emails daily during this time, so if you need to get in touch with my for anything- or send photographs of the activities you have been doing- then please do so. 
If you are REALLY keen to keep working during the holidays, then keep looking at the activities and documents that I uploaded in my very first post.  You can keep reading, practising your number bonds and accessing the daily mental maths online too.

Have a good day everyone,
Mrs L :) 

Super work from Sophia!

Well done to Sophia for doing this super work at home. I know that she has also been very busy baking and exercising too :)

Good morning,
I hope that you are all well and that you had a lovely weekend. I made some delicious chocolate brownies Chocolate Brownie Recipe. I also spent some time in the garden. We have some birds nesting in our garden at the moment so we made a bird feeder out of an old milk carton. Milk carton bird feeder ( scroll down to idea 21). You could have a go at making one ( with help from an adult) and then write your own set of instructions. Don't forget that you will need to include a 'you will need' list first and then use time words and bossy verbs in your instructions. e.g. First find an empty milk carton.

Maths
Keep looking at the daily 10 mental maths games daily mental maths Choose level one or level two if you want a challenge.
Have you finished the White Rose home learning activity that I set last week? I will let you know when week 3 becomes available.
How many addition and subtraction sentences can you write for the number 8? 
Can you make these amounts with 10p and 1p coins?  21p, 46p, 55p, 7p, 12p, 38p

Reading
This week we were  due to start our History work on The Great Fire of London. Read 'Sammy The street dog' on the e reader. Think about the things Sammy could see, hear, smell and feel. Write them on the senses mat.
More to follow on the Fire of London tomorrow...

If you are looking for more work to do -remember to scroll down to my first post on here with the list of end of Year One expectations. These spelling, writing and maths activities can be done more than once.

 
Thursday 2nd April

Good morning everyone! I hope you are well. I am interested to see how many of you have been logging on to our web page. It would be lovely to hear from you! Please send me a quick message to say hello if you can! Today we are continuing our learning on The Great Fire of London. The reading activity today is all about a very important man called Samuel Pepys. Read the text and have a try at answering the questions. I have attached a writing frame for you to have a try write your own fact file about Samuel Pepys. Maths- more and less than activity 3. Have a try at The Great Fire of London colour by numbers. You may need to use jottings to work out your addition questions before you colour!

There are lots of fun maths games! Parents please email me victoria.lazenby2@hunsletstmarys.co.uk and I can send you your child's unique username and password so they can access this fun website.

Good afternoon. A note for parents and carers, Under current circumstances, your child is being asked to access their learning from home. As you can imagine this means that children will be using and will have access to devices more than ever. Please make sure your child has all the appropriate settings on their devices in order to keep them safe online. I have added a document with some links to sites that parents can use to explain safe internet use and make sure children are protected online.

Tuesday 31st March

Good morning everyone. I hope you are all well. Today the activities will follow on from The Great Fire of London work that I set yesterday. If you haven’t read ‘Sammy the Street Dog’ yet, then it might be a good idea to do that first. Please read the text on The Great Fire of London carefully and have a try at answering the questions. There is a word search too. Have a go at cracking the code by answering the addition and subtraction problems (the answers are at the end- but don’t peek until you’ve had a try!) There is also a maths activity sheet for you to try. Have a good day! You can message me on here if you have any problems. If you want to share any of your work- parents can take a photograph and email it to me at victoria.lazenby2@hunsletstmarys.co.uk I can add the photos of your work onto our web page. Remember, first names only.

Welcome to Emerald Class! The following activites are closely  linked to end of Year One expectations for reading, writing and maths. Year Two children may find it more useful  to look at activities on the Amethyst class page. 

Attached are some ideas and activities that you may find useful over the next few weeks. 
Some of the key things that you may want to work on with your child are as follows:

Phonics 
  • reading phase 3 and phase 5 sounds ( see lists in documents)
  • reading and spelling  phase 2, 3,4 and 5 tricky  words ( see lists in documents) or click on the following links for the tricky word songs

You could practise writing some super sentences using a capital letter at the start, finger spaces and a full stop at the end. ( see documents for a list of sentences for parents to read aloud for children to write).


Reading
Please continue to read your child's school reading book with them at home and encourage them to re-read their book to develop fluency and confidence. You may want to ask them questions about what they have read too.
Encourage your child to read the books they have at home as well as any comics, magazines etc.

  • Understand place value in two digit numbers ( how many tens and ones are in each number)tens and ones video
  • Read and write numbers from 1 -20 in numerals and words
