We have learned all about our capital city, London and also about the different countries that make up the UK and their capital cities. This link will help you to recap that knowledge. It will also discuss the climate in the UK. There is a quiz at the end to test your knowledge too! We think you will all do fantastically well! Enjoy!

 

PSHE - Friendships

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zwfhfg8

During this strange time, when we are all missing our friends and families, it is important to make sure we are communicating with them in a different way. This might be over email, letter, skype, phone calls etc. In this video clip two friends talk about how it is possible to stay friends, even from far away. Why don’t you write one of your friends a letter and send it through the post?

 

Maths

You will find the next two activities from White Rose maths. If you do not have access to a printer you can always answer the questions on paper or verbally with your parent. The video clips on the links are really useful as they will give you some practise questions and you can also do the flashback 4 questions, which recap a range of maths topics! Keeping those mathematical brains active!

English

On the PowerPoint you will find a traditional tale, which I am sure you are all familiar with, Jack and the beanstalk. Read the story on your own or with an adult or sibling and then have a think about the different characters in the story. How could you describe them, using adjectives?

Take a look at the character description worksheets to help you. You could write a whole description about one character or a sentence on each of the characters.

Year 2s – can you include adverbs (quietly, amazingly, slowly) to describe the verbs (doing words)?

Year 1s- can you try and write an expanded noun phrase (two adjectives to describe the noun)?

 

Science

Thinking about the story of Jack and the beanstalk, can you create a life cycle of a bean? You can use the worksheets to guide you or you could create your own. Maybe you could do your own planting in your garden too?

We hope you all had fun over the Easter holiday.

 

Below is a link to a book written for children about Coronovirus. It is illustrated by Axel Schleffler - who has illustrated some of Julia Donaldson's books. You may like to share this with your child to help to answer some of the questions that they may have.

The Great Bug Hunt 2020 competition is now open for entries. It would be great if the children from Albany Infant and Nursery entered it. There are prizes for the child's class and the chance for the winning children to win a microscope!

This is the information from the website:

       

Our challenge is pretty simple – take your children into the garden or any outside space you own and see what bugs they can find!

Simply point them at the nearest hedges, flower beds, trees, long grass, logs, stones, rocks (well, you get the picture)... let them explore and then report back to us what they have found.

Please be sure, however, to follow government advice and do not leave your property. To do this, stay 2 metres away from people not in your household and do not put yourself or others at risk. 

Make it into a project – if they find a spider or woodlouse, find out all about it. Draw it, examine it (carefully!), what does it eat, where does it live – maybe even write a story or poem about it, design a poster, shoot a video and then email it over to us by the 12th June to rebecca@ase.org.uk (use mailbigfile free to send large files).

Maybe you’ll find a spider under the bed, maybe you’ll have a bug hunt indoors, maybe your explorers could learn about a habitat or insect online, the options are endless – with a little bit of imagination…

The website link for further info and also how to enter the Great Bug Hunt is as follows

The children enjoy listening to stories and we share a story every day at school. If you would like to share a story with your child the Book Trust website has lots of lovely stories that you can read to your child. The website link is

The BBC Bitesize website has launched some new resources today. If you would like to find out some history then the following links for year 1 and year 2 would be fun.

Year 1 can learn about Rosa Parks at https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6qnscw

Year 2 can learn about how to be a historian at https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrb492p

 

We have attached below two maths activities for Year 1 and two maths activities for Year 2. The answers are also attached. If you would like to watch the videos to support the activities these can be found within 'Week 1 Summer term' at

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

 

Attached below is a reading comprehension, a writing activity [Pobble] and two science activities. 

For the writing activity the Year 1 children can try to include adjectives [these describe the noun] and the Year 2 children can try to include adverbs [these describe the actions - verbs].

 

Please remember to keep active.  We will add some more ideas on Wednesday 22nd April.

 

Thanks

Hello children! We hope you are keeping safe and enjoying spending time with your families.

 

Here are some more activities you could try this week...

 

  • Make a poster or present a news report all about amazing Australia. You can incorporate all of the landmarks, the physical features like the Uluru Rock and talk about all of the deadly animals you would find in Australia. 

  • If you're going out on a daily walk could you collect things from your walk or garden to create art. 

  • If you have paint at home, you could look for rocks and stones in your garden and paint them. You could make them look like animals or you could paint a rainbow or a positive word or message and leave them for someone else to find on a walk.

  • Creating models and figures with playdough is a great way to get creative. Manipulating playdough helps to develop fingers and make the nice and strong, ready for writing. Maybe you could model your name? It’s lots of fun too for all ages! If you don’t have any playdough use the link below for a very simple recipe using household ingredients.

There are also some reading, maths and writing activities below for you to try too! 

 

Don't forget to keep active by doing some of the suggested exercise below and to keep up your amazing reading! We can't wait to hear all of your fantastic reading when you come back to school! 

 

See you all soon,

The KS1 team :)

 

 

 

 

30.3.20

This week we would like you to see if you can incorporate some geography into your daily walk. Ask the children if they can spot some human and physical features as they are walking and ask them to explain how they know. 

(Human features - Things that are man made - house, bike, microwave, playground equipment. Physical features - Things that are natural - mountains, rivers, grass.)

Attached below is a map of Australia, in school we have labelled this map with the different states in Australia and then went on to label the capital cities. Can the children remember them all and have a go at labeling them? If they have forgotten some, you could help them to research the answers.  

 

Please try and access physical activities each day, the Joe Wicks PE lessons on youtube are really good for our children, there are also plenty of yoga videos on 'cosmic kids' (youtube) and on the BBC website 'supermovers'. Physical activity has been proven to have a positive affect on children's concentration levels and their behaviour. 

 

At school we would normally read a story at least once per day to the children so alongside the children reading to you, you could also read to them. They love to sit a listen to a good story. As Mr Allen and we have already said, this is not a time for you to be teaching the children, enjoy doing these activities together, but also enjoy spending this time together. 

 

We will update this page on Wednesday 1.4.20

 

Thanks, 

KS1 team. 

Topic activities

Home learning 25.03.2020

 

You will find some useful links below which will help to support your children's learning at home. 

The activities are related to; reading, maths, writing, there are some topic activities about Australia and a science activity about the life cycle of the chick. Please do not feel that your children have to complete all the activities, little and often is key! We hope you are also outside in your gardens, enjoying the sunshine! 

There is also an app you can use called 'Epic!' - this is a an app that allows you to read books with your children. 

There will be an update on Friday with some new resources for you to complete. 

Many thanks, 

KS1 team. 

 

 

 

 

 

Daily schedule

Here are some activities for Year 1 and Year 2 

 

You could try and create some Australian Aboriginal art, using some cotton buds and some paint. Ask the children to choose an animal and create a stencil to draw round onto some paper.

 

Using what they know about Australia and the links below, children could create a poster or a leaflet all about Australia and why you should visit!

What can you find there? Think about the landmarks, the deadly animals and the beautiful weather! 

 

We also had chicks in school last week so it may be a good opportunity to discuss the life cycle of a chick. Use the powerpoint and worksheet to guide you. 

 

 

 

Welcome to Year 1 and 2
