Good Morning All – Eyes on the board and no talking now! Don’t forget to listen and put your hands up if you have a question. No calling out at the front…

We have another exciting day of home learning ahead. It’s a good idea to try and make a timetable each morning so you can plan your day. You could get an adult or an older brother or sister at home to help you. You could even do a visual time table like we use at school with pictures of the different tasks for the day and when you will complete them.

Daily activities as always are:

  • Zumos – Record you mood and listen to the how to be happy recording.
  • Sumdog – Try the different Maths, Spelling and Reading challenges that have been set.
  • Phonics – Use the phonics play website phase 5 activities or the phonics workbooks if have them.
  • Reading for 15 minute

Maths Challenge:

In year 1 we have learnt how we can use these symbols to compare numbers. Here is a number blocks video about them

Use these symbols to write some equations to compare the two digit numbers below. For example: 67 > 28 or 73 < 83 and don’t forget the = symbol… 32 = 32

If you have time also watch and do the activities for year 1 lesson 2 at https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

English Challenge:

We have been looking at the story ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’ in class. Today I want you to think about starting your own version of the story. Try thinking of your own opening to the story but changing the character and what they can’t do. Remember a good opening to a story should introduce the character, the setting and the problem. Here is an example of my opening…

Once there was a mouse called Matty who lived on a farm. He was small and furry. He was very good and nibbling cheese and crawling through holes. But he wasn’t very strong. One day all the farm animals decided to have a weight lifting competition.

You could draw a picture of your character and write a simple opening to the story or tell it to an adult. You could even share the opening to your story on the blog. I’d love to read them..

Science Challenge:

This term we have been learning about animals and how we can group them looking at their observable features. Another way that we can group animals is by what they eat. Animals that eat only plants are called Herbivores. Animals that eat only meat are called Carnivores. Animals like us that eat plants and meat are called Omnivores.

Here is a video to watch https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/z96vb9q

Try writing a list of animals that are herbivores, carnivores and omnivores in your books. You could try organising it into a Venn diagrams similar to the one shown. Please add a comment with some of your ideas…

  1. Brilliant Jovani! I love the way you have used some of the language and phrases from the original story but made it your own. I am very proud of you!


  2. There was a lion called Venom who lived in the Jungle. When ever he tried to run, he would buckle on his foot. All of the other lions would say, ‘you can’t run Venom’. A little ant jumped over him and coughed said, ‘listen to the whooshing trees and then you would feel like running’…….


  3. Hey Anna and Daniel, amazing starts to your stories! ‘Flamingo’s can’t jump’ and ‘Elephants can’t fly’. Did you manage to use any interesting describing words in your stories? I can’t wait to see what happens next…


  4. Hi Mr Fielder. We wrote the start of our stories.

    Anna: Flamingos can’t jump. Mimi likes standing on one leg but when it came to jumping she wasn’t very good.

    Daniel: Once there was an elephant called Biggie 0. He was very good at doing a shower for himself and very bad at digging through little holes. He could not fly.


  5. Hi, I am glad they are enjoying the blog and managing to access it. I don’t think you need to login to the blog and you can use any email to comment with. The email address will help you to login to https://www.busythings.co.uk
    which has lots of online activities. I may begin directing the class here to do certain activities so worth checking out.


  6. Thanks Mr Fielder, they are enjoying the blog and the videos. We have a login for the blog and an email but I can’t see where we might use them, there isn’t a website?
