On Fridays at school, we always do our 'Composition'. This is where the children write independently based on what we have been doing that week. This week we asked you to go on an adventure with a grown up and write about it.

 Big Writing | Oxford Owl

Today, we would like you to write a recount of your adventure. Use your story S plan to help you put the main events in the correct order. 

Remember to;

  • use capital letters and full stops
  • use finger spaces
  • use cursive handwriting
  • include conjunctions to extend your sentences
  • use adjectives to make it interesting 

 

When you have finished your writing, please send a picture of it to Y1@mostonlane.manchester.sch.uk

we would love to see it!

 

Maths:

Today we would like you to start off by completing the Top Marks daily challenge - https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 

Once you have done the daily challenge to warm up your maths brain, use the following link to complete the next lesson on White Rose to practise grouping objects to make arrays. 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ - Week 2 – Lesson 4 – Step 4 – Make arrays. Watch the video and complete the activity.

 

Art:

Let's get creative! Today we would like you to try some shadow sketching. Go and find 4 or 5 of your favourite toys and stand them at the edge of some plain paper (or use the plain pages in your workbook we sent home). You might want to do this near a window so it is light, if it isn't a sunny day use a lamp to make the shadow. If it is a really nice day you could do this activity outside in your garden. When you're all set up you should be able to see the shadows that your toys have made. Draw around the shadows of your toys and then colour them in.

Writing:

As part of your writing this week, we would like you to go for a short walk with your grown up near your house. This will be your own adventure so think about what you might need to take with you. Whilst you are on your walk, pay attention to all the things you can see, smell, hear and even feel. 

Enjoy your adventure!

 

Maths: 

This week in Maths, we are looking at making groups of objects, numbers and measurements. For today, we would like you to complete two activities. 

Remember: weight is how heavy or light something is!

 

History: 

For our final history lesson on adventurers and explorers, we would like you to think about everything that you know and that you have learnt about Amelia Earhart. Tell your grown up the most interesting fact that you know about her. It might be that she was the first woman to break the altitude record by flying 14,000 ft or it might be that her first plane was yellow so she named it 'The Canary'. 

 

When you have told your grown up the most interesting fact that you know, we would like you to design a medal that people could wear to remember her by. Draw this in your home learning book. Think about everything that she did to help you think of a design.
