Our new topic for this half term is 'What a wonderful world!'.

Do you have any ideas for activities based on our topic? Let us know and we will upload them onto our Year 1 page.
If you have any birthday pictures or upcoming Eid pictures, videos of you reading or just any fab videos send them to us so we can upload them. We would love to see the extra fun and exciting things you are doing at home so we can show all of your friends!

In Year 1 we have listened to music and sung songs from around the world. Our theme song for this topic is Louis Armstrong's song -
What a Wonderful World.
Listen to the song.
How does it make you feel?
We would love to hear you singing part of the song.
What makes you HAPPY?
This week whilst you're at home, take some time out to think about all the things that make you happy.
What do you enjoy doing?
Do you have any hobbies?
Maybe you could think about trying something new?
Begin by making a list of all the things that make you happy?
Make a Happiness Tree?
Collect natural materials from your garden or during
your daily exercise.
Alternatively, you could use your imagination and
make a tree or something else to help you remember
all the things that make you happy.
Can you draw a picture of your face,you can also include your shoulders. We have drawn lots of self portraits and talked in depth about the children taking their time and including the features of their face. A mirror can help you look at your face. What shape is your face?
Is it long,round etc.
What colour are your eyes?
Do you have long hair or short hair?
Is your hair curly or straight?.
Use the correct colours to colour in your portrait.
Please could you take two photographs of your portrait.
One with your child holding their picture and another photo of just the picture. We plan to use the photo of your child's drawing for something later at the end of Year 1 so if possible please could you pass this challenge on to others so they don’t miss out.
There are numbers all around inside and outside your house. Can you write a list of all the numbers you find.
What is the largest number you found?
Write down all the odd numbers you found.
Write down all the even numbers you found.
Can you write the numbers from smallest to largest?
Can you make sums with the numbers that you found? For example:48+6=54,10-8=2
Make your own travel brochure. Make a booklet to encourage someone to visit a particular country or continent. You could include flags, maps, facts and pictures in your booklet.
JUST FOR FUN!
Can you draw or make a flag of a country that interests you?
Can you create a dance to your favourite song?
Imagine that you are an explorer and you have just discovered a new island.
Draw a map of the island.
What features will you add on your map?
It is very important for us all to stay active.
In school the children have been taking care of their bodies by exercising with Joe Wicks.
He is now streaming live exercise routines daily at 9am every weekday. Don't worry if you can't make the live workout,they are all saved on the website for you to complete at any time.
Just follow the link and have fun!...
Please find below a list of phonic blends and key words for your children to practise as and when you get the chance.
Start from phase 2 and work up to get an understanding where your child is working from and go from there.
Any queries get in touch. We're here to help :)
