Wednesday 22nd July

Year 1

Wake up activity:

Can you write down the days of the week independently?

Phonics Phase 5

Literacy-A Letter to Me.

This week we are going to learn about letters and by the end of the week we are going to write a letter to ourselves to remember our year. Then you could keep this letter in a safe place and open it at a time that you choose- this could be at the end of Year 6, in 10 years’ time, when you turn 18 or at a time of your choice. That way you can keep all the memories of this year safe (a little bit like a time capsule). This week there are only 4 different activities so that you can have a break from writing on your last day in Year 1.

Activity 2- Can you tell us all about you?

To get ready to write our letter to ourselves, today we would like you to complete an activity all about you. Complete the sheet ‘A letter to myself ideas’ (in resources).

Activity 3- Can you plan your letter?

Today we are going to plan our letter to ourselves. Take a look at the planning sheet (in resources- this should help you to organise your ideas from yesterday into sections that can make up a letter ready for writing it tomorrow. Use the questions and headings to help you to organise your ideas. You can write words, phrases, sentences or draw pictures to help complete the planning sheet. Don’t forget to keep looking back at you work from yesterday to help.

Maths- The Mystery of the Missing Moji

This week we would like the children to help us solve a mystery because the Moji’s that have a mystery to solve. The Moji’s were planning to throw a party to welcome the new Moji’s to town, but one of the usual Moji’s has disappeared. They would like your help to find out who is to blame. The way to find out, is to work through a series of clues. Each clue helps to eliminate the Moji suspects from the list until hopefully you are left with one Moji left. You will need to use a wide range of maths skills to solve the clues and we know that you can do it again this week. Don’t forget to let your teacher know which Moji was to blame. You can use the number line and hundred square below to help you with the challenges if you need to and remember to use any equipment that might help you too. Good luck! If you need help from an adult with the challenges then that’s ok. We hope you enjoy solving the Moji mystery!

A Jar of Dreams

When we end a year we usually like to talk to the children about their hopes and dreams for the future. This is a magical thing that is lovely to do, so we would like to give you all the opportunity to experience this beautiful discussion at home instead and then hopefully share it with the teachers too.

So, for this activity we would like you to think about the things you would like to happen when you get a little bit older. These are your hopes and dreams. This could be dreams for Year 2, dreams for when you are a few years older or dreams for when you are much, much older. You can have a couple of dreams or lots of them. You might have dreams that involve other people too e.g. going to the seaside with your family.

You can find pictures of dream jars to help you in the resources as well as a template and editable version too.

Spelling

This week we are going to practise spelling the Year 2 common exception words.

Activities:

• Guess The Common Exception Word- (in resources). Can you look at each word with missing letters and guess what the common exception word should be? The shape of the box around the words gives you a clue about whether the missing letter is tall, in the middle or a digging letter. There’s also a Year 2 common exception words word mat in the resources to help you,
