Home learning – 4.11.20 (morning)

Good morning Year 1!

It’s day 2 of home learning and I’m feeling much more relaxed and excited than I was yesterday so thank you! See you soon hopefully, as ever here is the work on the blog just in case you can’t access Teams.

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

Lets look at a trickier word with ee in it –

Lets count the sounds: th r ee.

Can you say the word? . If you are having difficulty saying the whole word, repeat each of the sounds again and again faster until the whole word appears – three.

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

glee grow cluck zoom slight fee free chomp

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 tree 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 ‘street’. 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 ee in it that would like to practise also.

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

hee Did not neeed to see any more of the dees

There are 6 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 ‘ee‘ 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,

We are focusing on the addition symbol. Here is the success criteria for the lesson.

It is first important that we check that the children understand what the ‘+’ means. Do they know what it does? How do we use it in Maths?

Next, explore some of the language we use when we are adding together. Look at words like combine and group. What do these words mean and do they relate to adding in anyway? Children should have a wide vocabulary in regards to adding together.

The questions today are fairly simple to begin with. Spend some time reading through the questions and making doubly sure you know exactly what you are being asked before you answer!

Once you have completed these, check your working with an adult to make sure they are all correct. Fix any mistakes and discuss how you think you made that mistake.

These next questions require full sentence answers instead of just finding the answer. Just words like ‘because’ and phrases like ‘I know this by’ and ‘I used’ to give an explanation for your answer. Your answer should be good enough that a Reception child could understand how you worked it out.

When you are finished, remember to check you have used a capital letter and a full stop. Are you happy with how you have explained your answer? Does it make sense?

Best of luck!

Mr Markham
