Hedgehogs home learning Friday 3rd April

Happy Friday Hedgehogs!

I’m sure you are looking forwards to Easter, and the next two weeks would have been your ‘Easter holiday’. We won’t be setting any home learning tasks during the holiday period, but you can revisit the tasks you have been set over the last two weeks and carry out any you missed or repeat those that you really enjoyed!

Don’t eat too many chocolate eggs and Easter sweets!

Fine motor skills

Today you can print out or copy the design for making an Easter chick.

Chick 3rd April 2020

Phonics

Please think about the phonics you did yesterday on Education City. You can do it again if you wish before carrying out todays task…

Year 1 – can you put the tricky words from yesterday in to a sentence?

Reception – can you play ‘eye spy’ with a grown up? What sound does the object you can see start with? Can you write the letter to match the sound?

English

Use the photographs you took yesterday to write down the instructions for the task you did. Ask an adult to help you if you aren’t sure – you can write the sentences together perhaps.

Don’t forget to start a new line for each new part of the instruction.

Remember to start each sentence with a capital letter and end it with a full stop.

Use words such as first, then, next, after that, finally, lastly etc to start your sentences.

Maths

Year 1 – your multiplication lesson is set up on MyMaths

Reception – Collect some objects from around your house. Can you make a number line with them? Put 1 object in its own set first, then 2 in the next set, then 3 in the next set, all the way up to 10 and beyond! Can you write the numeral to go with each set of objects? What would happen if you joined two sets together? for example if you joined the set 3 and 1 together, how many would you have altogether?

Reading

Please log on to Reading Eggs to carry out an activity in ‘My Lessons’.

Yoga

Todays yoga is based on the story ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’.

Golden Time

I hope you enjoyed playing a board game together with someone in your house last week. It would be lovely if you made time every Friday afternoon to play a board game with other people in your house please. If you don’t have a board game, I’m sure you can find virtual games to play together online or to print out (www.twinkl.co.uk have some good ones) and you might even have board games for your Xbox or PlayStation!

Hedgehogs home learning 27th March 2020

Good morning Hedgehogs.

I hope you enjoyed your activities yesterday, and didn’t get too wet exploring the capacity of different containers!

Your tasks for today are below. I hope you enjoy them.

Mrs Johnson

Fine motor skills

Pick an activity from the poster below, something different to yesterday please.

26 and 27 March

Phonics

Think about the sounds you were learning about yesterday on Education City.

Can you write your own lists of words with those sounds in them?

Reception – words starting with c or k

Reception – words ending in ck (more challenging activity)

Year 1 – words with the split digraph o-e. This can be the long o-e sounds as in home and the short o-e sound as in come.

Reading

Pick up your favourite story book that you have at home. Which is your favourite part of the story? Why? Can you read that page, and draw a picture to show me what happened?

Maths

Today you have an activity on My Maths all about capacity.

English

Reception – Write a simple sentence on a strip of paper. If you are stuck for ideas, look around you! For example, you might write ‘The flowers are yellow’ ,  ‘My dog is called Stan’ or ‘I am going to help my Mum get dinner’. Cut up the sentence and mix up the word order. Challenge someone in your house to put the sentence back together again.

This activity is similar to the one you did yesterday.

If you find it hard to write/read the words, ask a grown up to do it for you and stick to short sentences. You can help to put the words in the right order and work together as a team!

Year 1 – Can you write a sentence with the verb missing and see if someone at home can suggest what the missing verb might be? Think about the sentences you did on the worksheet yesterday to give you some ideas of what you could write. Can they write a sentence for you to add the missing verb? Who is the best sentence writer?!

Yoga

In Hedgehog Class, we love Cosmic Yoga and take part in this every Friday afternoon. Please find a yoga video to do together on Cosmic Yoga’s website. I’m sure parents will love it too!

Golden Time

You have had a very busy and different week. Celebrate how amazing you and your family are by playing a board game together – snakes and ladders, frustration or kerplunk – any family board game will be lovely. Enjoy spending time together and remember how brilliant you all are.

Well done everyone!

Hedgehogs home learning Thursday 26th March 2020

Pick an activity from the poster below to try at home.

26 and 27 March

Phonics

Please log on to Education City for your activities for today.

Reception children have a choice of two activities, or you can do both!

Reading

Find a cosy spot in your house or garden and snuggle up with a teddy bear. Choose your favourite story and read it to your cuddly toy.

Spellings

Year 1 – words with the split digraph o-e as a short sound – come, some, done, none.

Reception – words ending in ck – pick, rock, neck, luck, sack.

Maths

Explore how much water different containers hold – an activity for your garden! Choose a range of different containers (such as cups, bowls, jugs, buckets and bottles) trying to find different shapes and sizes. Pour water from one container to another, thinking about if they are full, empty, half full, quarter full, three quarters full, if they have more water in than the last container or less than.

Which container held the most water? The least? Which overflowed? Why? What did you find out about the capacity of each container?

Year 1 can also investigate, explore and compare measuring capacity in millilitres and litres using the labels on containers and measuring jugs.

English

Please find your activity below. You can print them out or read them from the screen and write in your green home learning books.

Reception children –

Sentence scramble 26th March 2020

Year 1 children –

Verbs activity 26 March 2020

Art

Have fun printing using different household objects and washable children’s paint. Talk about the different shapes the objects make when printing, the colours used, patterns and textures (eg does it look rough, bumpy, smooth etc). Can you print a picture using different objects?

Please don’t worry if you can’t fit all of these activities in to your day. I want you to enjoy being and learning together and so if you need to leave an activity out and come back to it another time, that’s absolutely fine.
