Next thing I knew, I had travelled to this imaginary world where the trees were made of cotton candy and the grass was made of strawberry laces. The sky was yellow and there were lots of cars but they all drove backwards. I walked around for a bit and found a talking fountain. I asked him some questions about the land I had travelled to.

 

Can you think of any good questions to ask the talking fountain about the land in my dream?

Can you think of a time you had a dream you travel to an imaginary land? If not don’t worry, you can make it up! Use these sentence starters to write about the imaginary land you travel to in your dreams.

What beautiful weather - I hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine safely! 

I know I have replied individually on email, however I would just like to say how incredibly proud I am of everyone who has sent me work this week! You have completely smashed every task I have set and gone above and beyond! I mostly see your writing, but I'm sure your maths is just as incredible! As for your writing...WOW...just wow! I can tell how much effort and determination you have put into each piece and I want you to know how incredibly proud you make me and all the staff here at Whitchurch Primary!

There has definitely been a LOT of change recently, but one thing that hasn't changed is that you are all absolute SUPERSTARS!

Half term project:

If you would like an activity to work on over the half term, you could create a model out of recycled materials (with permission) of a beach/seaside. If you are lucky enough to have visited a beach/seaside, you could think of your favourite memories and try to incorporate them within your model. For me, it would definitely be ice-cream, sunshine and family/friends! 

Remember to send any of you creations through to the school email office@whitchurchprimary.co.uk with the subject FAO Miss Fudge!

Enjoy your half term Year 1!

 

Miss Fudge :)

For the mission, two astronauts have already been chosen but there needs to be a third. Your task is to solve the clues to work out which astronaut will be chosen. Below is the list of potential astronauts, each day we will unearth a clue to work out who will go to space!

Your first clue is below!
Good luck!

English: Today you are taking the animal you have decided to use in your own story (parrot, salamander, baboon, buzzard or tiger) and find out a little bit more about them. I would like you to use the fact file below and some of your own research today to write facts about your chosen animal. Think about what they look like, what is their habitat, what they eat, where in the world they can be found. Remember to use capital letters, full stops and use 'and' or 'but' to create compound sentences.

For blue challenge: I would like you to write three questions about your animal you would like to know using the correct punctuation and then research the answer, writing it underneath the question, again using the correct punctuation (either full stop or exclamation mark).

Maths: Please complete Summer term week 5 – lesson 1 – Compare length and height - on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Happy Friday Year 1! Another week completed!

I saw this video and it made me think of Puffin Class and all the people we can't see at the moment. I would just like to say I am so incredibly proud of all of you during this time and I miss you lots!!

Yes of course it's Disney, would you expect anything else from me!

Here are your tasks for Friday 15th May:

Phonics: Please play two games on PhonicsPlay and remember to write down any words that you find tricky to sound out. Also get excited for a week long phonics challenge next week, where each day we will use our phonics knowledge to crack the code as to which astronaut is going to go the space!

 

Reading challenge: It is so lovely to see lots of you taking on the challenge each day - Well done and keep it up! I have set the next chapter and quiz on Purple Mash for you! Remember you have to read all five chapters and answer all the brain-busting quiz question before next Friday (22.5.20) to get your certificate!!!

 

English: Today you need to pick your favourite animal and instrument to write your very own story. Using your bare bones plan from Wednesday, you need to again create five sentences of your own bare bone planning with your own animal and instrument, instead of the bear and the piano. As an extra blue challenge, think about your character and how they are being brave by playing their instrument. The bear was brave by leaving the other bears and practising the piano to play huge concerts. Maybe your giraffe might be tall to fit in the concert hall and people may laugh. Maybe your tiger is brave to play in front of huge crowds because he is knows there might be hunters in the big city.

Reading challenge: I have set the next chapter and quiz on Purple Mash for you! Remember you have to read all five chapters and answer all the brain-busting quiz question before next Friday (22.5.20) to get your certificate!!!

 

English: So we have been looking at a bear playing the piano… quite a ridiculous thought if you think about it right? So let’s pair up some other animals with instruments. Here’s a little video to start us off https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kgpy-m9B6s

I’m going to give you a list of animals, a list of ways to play instruments and a list of instruments. What you first have to do is think what animals you would want to play each instrument. Next you need to think how you would play each instrument; you wouldn’t strum a trumpet or tap a fiddle! Then you need to write them into sentences: The baboon is bowing the fiddle. The parrot is playing the clarinet.

Science: We are going to test material properties today. First watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0d0eIqaim8 and then complete the investigation on the sheet below.

Good morning Year 1! Hope you had a lovely weekend! Remember to send in any work you complete to office@whitchurchprimary.co.uk with the subject FAO Miss Fudge. :)

 

Here are your tasks for Monday 11th May:

Phonics: Play two games of your choice on Phase 5 PhonicsPlay. Make sure to write down the words you struggle to sound out and add sound buttons.

 

English: As it is the start of a new week, let's read our book from the beginning.

Today we are looking at creating past tense (to talk about something that has already happended) by adding our -ed ending. 

I would like you to write a news report about the bear and his performance last night.

Take these verbs and change them into past tense by adding -ed and use them in your past tense news report about the bear.

perform, record, interview, play, enjoy, listen

Here's an example for some inspiration:

Yesterday the bear performed to a sell-out hall and tonight he will perform again. We interviewed the bear and he said he has recorded an album and he played some songs last night.

 

Maths: Please complete Summer term week 4 - lesson 1 - Add by making 10 - on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Watch the video and complete the worksheet below. There are two options; if you would like green challenge please complete the worksheet with two stars in the top left corner. Alternatively, if you would like a blue challenge please complete the worksheet that has three stars in the top left corner. 

Once you have completed them, with an adult check the answer and correct any that you struggled with. 

(Art is below the worksheet!)

 

 

Art: I thoroughly enjoyed seeing your BB-8 creations and we have another character to try today...Tinkerbell!

file:///C:/Users/AFudge/Downloads/33722_arts_of_animation_tinker_bell_uk.pdf Have ago and I can't wait to see your drawing!

Alternatively, if you struggle with the detail try Captain America's shield: file:///C:/Users/AFudge/Downloads/33711_aoa_capt_am_UK%20(1).pdf

Happy Friday Puffin Class! As today is a special bank holiday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE day (Victory in Europe of World War Two) these tasks are optional! If you would like an activity to complete today feel free to do so, however if you are celebrating VE day in the sun that is good as well! 

The activity is to create a medal of bravery! Lots of brave men and women risked their lives to protect our country and give us the freedom we have. It would be a nice activity to celebrate their bravery by creating medals in their memory.

 

Have a lovely long weekend in the sunshine and with your family! Stay safe and come back on Monday for our usual lessons and another fantastic week! 

Miss Fudge :)

 

Good morning Puffins! How lovely is this beautiful sunshine! Lots of things to be grateful for and it makes me think of a lovely quote:

"It never hurts to look for sunshine" - Eeyore

Make an effort to appreciate what beautiful weather we have experienced and maybe think about other things to be grateful for that we maybe take for granted normally.

Here are your tasks for Thursday 7th May:

Phonics: Play Tricky Word Trucks on PhonicsPlay and write down any of the words you struggle to read. Then ask an adult to put those tricky words you struggled with into a sentence for you to write. Remember to sound out all sounds and check whether there are any baby vowels that need a strong protector e.g. affraid.

 

English: Let's continue with some more of our story.

What does the word admiration means?

Let's take a closer look at this sentence "The bear's name was up in big, bright lights in the big, bright city."

 

There are two expanded noun phrases (which we have done lots of work on!). Remember an expanded noun phrase is two adjectives (describing words) that describe a noun (naming word). We use it to get a lot more description into our sentence. Rather than saying "The lights were big and bright." you can embed the detail/description within the sentence by using the expanded noun phrase 'big, bright lights'. Like I said, we have done a lot of work on this so I know you can create fantastic expanded noun phrases!

What I would like you to do is write sentences using the piano word mat. You will found nouns on the black keys and the adjectives to describe those nouns on the white keys. Write the expanded noun phrases into full sentences using 'and'.

.

 

Maths: Please complete Summer term week 3 - lesson 4 - Add more and count on within 20 - on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

It makes me very proud to see all the wonderful work you are produced and how much effort you are continuing to put into all your activities!

Here are your tasks for Wednesday 6th May:

Phonics: Have a look around the house and collect some words. You need to work out how many syllables are in each word. Syllables is useful for breaking a word up to help when sounding out. Think about how many beats are in the word. It can be helpful to clap out the word.

 

English: Let's listen to a little more of the story.

Do you think the bear is brave? Is he brave for taking a risk? Would he have missed out on an opportunity if he wasn't brave?

We are going to have another look at contractions of some of our tricky words.

could not = couldn't

would not = wouldn't

should not = shouldn't

Write a letter to the bear using these contractions to tell him what he should do. If you would like an extra challenge (blue challenge!) try to add in a compound sentence, using 'and' or 'but' to connect two independent clauses.

 

Maths: Please complete Summer term week 3 - lesson 3 - Add together and find a part - on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Watch the video and complete the activity, checking the answers once completed.

 

PSHE: Continuing on with our healthy living topic, complete this worksheet. You could print it off or you could create your own version of the sheet or create a poster with all the same information.

Here are your tasks for Tuesday 5th May:

Phonics:

Try to think of a word that uses each digraph as well to challenge yourself. I'll start you off with the first one. 

ai (rain): ay (play), a-e (make)

 

English: The poster and song we received yesterday reminded me of a story. Let's read a bit of it:

Do you think that the bear will continue to play? Why? Do you think the the paino is played by others or do you think that it has been in the forest for a long time? Have you ever tried something before that hasn't gone that well in the beginning but you continued to practice?

Today we are going to write compound sentences using the conjunction 'and' or 'but' which joins two independent clauses together...creating compound sentences. Match up two statements and connect them using 'and' or 'but'. Then voila! You have five compound sentences!

.

Maths: Please complete Summer term week 3 - lesson 2 - Fact families linking addition and subtraction (1) - on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Watch the video and complete the activity, checking the answers once completed.

 

Science: Continuing on from our everyday materials topic, today I would like you to describe the properties of certain materials. The properties of materials are how they look and feel, and as you can imagine metal has very different properties than fabric. Use these key properties to help write your descriptive sentences of metal, wood and plastic .

 .

We've had a letter from Iggy delivered to school asking for our help!

Your spellings were given out on Monday 20th April (just down below) and SpellingShed is all set up for each week, with some fun ways of practising spellings. Remember your child's login is at the front of their spelling books.

 

PSHE: As it is Friday, we would usually have choosing in the afternoon, but to link with our new healthy lifestyle topic in PSHE this term; I would like you to go outside in your garden and play a sport/active game or if you can't go in a garden, be sure to go out on your one walk today. You could even play tag whilst on your walk, if it is safe to do so away from roads. If you are not able to go out, please do a Joe Wicks on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMpSKmcdXBI or dance to your favourite songs!

A key aspect of a healthy lifestyle is staying active, and with the weather as beautiful as it is take this time with your family. Try to think how exercise makes you feel and why it is so good for us.

 

Have a lovely weekend! Stay safe!

Hello Year 1! I have added some tasks for you on Purple Mash to start off with and to help you get your head around the website and how it works. Please have a go at the activities, by logging on using your login details that were sent out last week and go to your 2dos at the top. In there, you should see four short tasks for you to complete. I should then be able to see all your fantastic work straight away! The activities are set until Sunday so no rush, as i know you have the daily tasks from here to do as well. I will start to set some of our daily tasks over on Purple Mash in the future, however for now please just get used to the website. There are other fun games and activities for you to try out as well on Purple Mash!

Think about these questions:

What do we know about Iggy already? What do we think we know about him? What might happen next? What does Miss Greer not like? Do you think she might be about to stop Iggy building?

Today I would like you to match up and write these statements; one about Iggy (pink) and one about Miss Greer (green). I would like you to connect the statements with the conjunction 'but' because the statements are contrasting (opposite).

Your sentence should look like this "Iggy likes building but Miss Greer might stop him."

Here are your tasks for Monday 20th April:

Phonics: In phonics this week, I would like you to do a hunt around your house. Each day I will give you a new digraph and what you need to do is go around your house and write down any words/objects you can find with that digraph in. As an extra challenge, take one of the words/objects and write them in a sentence.

Today's sound is er

 I might be able to find and write a DVD player, speaker or potato masher. My sentence could be "My speaker plays loud, groovy music." 

 

English: Over the Easter holidays, you all you designed and built some wonderful structures. Well Done!

When you were designing and building, you were being architects. Architects are people who design and help to build lots of different building all over the world. Seeing your fantastic buildings and lots of little Year 1 architects at work reminded me of a story... Iggy Peck Architect!

Please follow along with the first part of this story:

Iggy Peck built so many wonderful structures! You task for today is to name the arch, church, tower and temple, and write them in a full sentence. Now these can be completely made up using a phase 5 sound. It might be Stope Arch or Plest Tower and in a sentence you could have "This is the Shele Temple and it is wide and green."

Now, you need to remember that what you decide is the name, and you all know what we need to use for somebody's name... A CAPITAL LETTER!

We will look a little more at this story tomorrow!

 

Maths: Please complete week 3 - lesson 1 - making doubles on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Science: Other hunt around your house for today, to kick off our materials topic in Science. Please go around your house and create a table of items in your house based on their material. Your subheadings for your table are these materials: metal, fabric, wood, plastic and rubber. You can draw the item, write the name of the item or do both if you are super fantastic! As you are doing this, think what makes each material different and why certain things are made up of certain materials. For example, why would you not want a metal blanket, a wooden umbrella or a fabric cup to drink your juice?

 

Spelling: Here are your Term 5 spellings for both group 1 and group 2. Remember to check the top left to make sure you  are learning your groups spellings! The first spelling test is on the 1st May.

Term 4!

Happy Easter!! Have fun and stay safe!

Some more Easter fun for you all!

Next term's topic is houses, so you could start to think about different houses and what makes your special. You could draw a picture of your house, or each room! Think about what you like in your house and what you could change. Once you have drawn your house, I would like you to think about your dream house and create a model of it. Use materials you can find around your house that can be recycled into your project. 

What sort of things would be in your dream house? Soft-play room, trampoline, a really big garden or make the house big enough that all your family could live with you.

Mine would have a big swimming pool, a garden that was big enough to have some farm animals and a big vegetable patch to grow my own food! 

Please take photos of your projects (both completed and during the process) and email them to whitchurch_pri@bathnes.gov.uk with the subject FAO Miss Fudge. :)

 

Reading Wise (https://app.readingwise.com/) is up and running. Use the school username: whitchurch and password: primaryschool to access the website.

Miss Fudge :)

 

 

 

Don't forget below the picture is your tasks for Friday 3rd April!

If we were in school today, it would have been the last day of term! Over the Easter holidays, there will not be daily tasks as usual, we have decided to set a project for the Easter holidays.

In Year 1, we have been learning all about animals! The different types of animals, where they live and what they eat. 

For one of your projects, I would like you to create a large scale Design and Technology project where you design a habitat with animals that would live in that habitat. Use materials you can find around your house that can be recycled into your project. 

For example, you could create an ocean habitat out of a box with blue paper/paint/felt tip/material. Then draw different types of fish, mammals (whales/dolphin) or reptiles (sea turtle).

If you need leaves, twigs or rocks in your habitat, you could get some from your garden if you are lucky enough to have one or from a walk near your house.

Please take photos of your projects (both completed and during the process) and email them to whitchurch_pri@bathnes.gov.uk with the subject FAO Miss Fudge. :)

I have made my woodland habitat project and thought about lots of different types of animals that might live in this habitat. I have a mammals (deer and hedgehog), birds (owl), fish and an amphibian (frog). See the picture below for some inspiration!

 

Hope you have a lovely Easter! I miss you all lots! I can't wait to see your FANTASTIC Easter habitat projects!!

Miss Fudge :)
