Home learning – 03.11.20 (morning)

Good morning Year 1!

Happy first day of self-isolating for some and happy second day of isolating for others. Just a reminder, should all go to plan then the work I am uploading onto the blog is only a backup for the lesson which is on the Teams page either to be watched live or afterwards as recording.

For English (RWI), we are practising the sound ‘ay‘. We should practice saying this sound out loud. Can you think of any words that have the sound ‘ay’ in them? ‘Play‘ has an ay at the end of the word. So does stay. Can you count how many sounds there are in play and stay? You should have three FRED fingers out.

Lets look at a trickier word with ay in it –

Lets count the sounds: s p r ay.

Can you say the word? It is important that we do not say ‘spay‘, or even ‘sray‘. If you are having difficulty saying the whole word, repeat each of the sounds again and again faster until the whole word appears – spray.

Next it is important to practise reading more green words. These words mostly use set 2 sounds:

glee high look zoom slight pay day chimp

It is important that we are not only able to read or decode these words once, but read them again quickly and with confidence.

Next we are looking at alien words. These words are very tricky because they aren’t even from this planet! We still learn them because they are great for practising our sounds and blending. Who knows, maybe one day all this alien word practise will come in useful! Remember we must say each sound before we saying the whole word, lets have a go.

Now we have practised our reading, now we must practise our writing. Let’s practise writing the word day to begin with (nice and easy). Practise saying the word over and over again and pay attention to every sound you are using and the way your mouth is moving to form the word. Now (without looking) practise writing the word on a piece of paper. When you are done, you should check if you were correct. Tick if you were and fix if you were not.

Now lets do a harder one. Now lets practise writing the word ‘stray’. Same as before, say the words over and over until you are confident you can feel each sound as it comes out of your mouth, sometimes it helps to say the word very slowly. Now (without looking) practise writing the word on a piece of paper. When you are done, check to see if you are correct. Tick if you were and fix if you were not.

You can practise this with any other words with ay in it that would like to practise also.

Next up is the proofread. Read the sentence below and check for the mistakes.

they do not need any more hey. tooday

There are 4 mistakes to correct, try your hardest to find them all.

Now read the correct sentence and check it against your own:

They do not need any more hay today.

How did you get on? Make sure to tick what you got correct and to fix your mistakes.

Lastly, for the ‘Hold a sentence’ I want you to pick a word that has ‘ay‘ in, try and pick one that you want to learn. Next, create your own sentence using this word. Bonus points for the most creative sentence!

Best of luck!


For Maths,

I decided that because of the importance of the children understanding and recognising the part whole model, that another lesson is required where I am able to use Teams to explain the concept in depth.

Here is the success criteria for this lesson , this is what the children should know by the end:

Understanding both facts, that a part-whole model shows how a whole can be split into two or more parts (including zero), and that parts come together to form the whole (which is called adding), is an essential foundation for children’s understanding of addition throughout all of KS1.

These problems are designed to help the children demonstrate their fluency.

In some of the questions amounts are not shown as numbers but as objects. This is building on the children’s concept of place value which they developed last half term.

Best of luck,

Hopefully see some of you on the Teams lesson!

Mr Markham

    1. Thank you so much! I was very nervous before hand but in the end I really enjoyed it. Maybe there’s a way to incorporate the mute button into class teaching…. ๐Ÿ˜‰
