Good morning Year 1!


Lessons for today are: maths, literacy, phonics and science.  Don't forget these can be done in any order.  Work can be completed in your purple home learning books and/or uploaded onto Tapestry.  If you need any help please contact your class teacher or Mrs Burkitt.


Not every piece of work has different challenges for each group, but where it has been provided please encourage your child to complete their group activity.  If they would like to attempt another groups challenge too that is brilliant!


Thank you for your continued support.


To begin maths today we have a fun length and height song. Join in and dance along as you remember some of the special maths vocabulary we worked on yesterday!

Today in science we will be looking at the seasonal changes that occur between Autumn and Winter.  Please watch the video 'Seren's Seasons' first to remind yourself of some of the signs associated with each season.  Can you remember what Seren builds each season?

Orange and Yellow pencils - maybe your adult can write down the signs of winter you have included in your picture: no leaves on the tree, person wearing hat, scarf and gloves, snow on the ground...


Red and green pencils - Eg In winter I wear a hat, coat and scarf because it is very cold and it might snow.


Blue pencils - Eg. Winter is even colder than autumn and it might snow.  The trees have lost their leaves and might have icicles hanging on them.
