A recipe for the perfect Superhero! WB 06.07.20

This is our final week of home learning in Year 1 and we hope you have enjoyed learning all about Superheroes!

 

We would like you to think about what the perfect Superhero and writing a recipe for this.

 

In school we will be breaking up the week into the following:

 

- Monday

Research recipes – introduce recipes and discuss what they are and what they are used for. Read through a couple of examples and discuss what they would have if they followed them. Ask the children if they have ever followed a recipe – maybe for baking a cake? (Examples of recipes are attached below).

 

- Tuesday

What does a good superhero look like? What costume might it have? What tools/equipment might it have?

What are the qualities of a good superhero? Create a word bank of ideas. Can they extend their vocabulary with alternative words for good and kind etc. (noble and helpful…)

 

- Wednesday

Read good example of a recipe for a superhero (example attached below) explain they are going to make their own recipe linked to their own newly created hero. Look at the word bank created yesterday, what were the qualities of the superheroes that they came up with?

Work together to write the start of a recipe. What were the first few features needed? – title, subheading and list of ingredients. 

 

- Thursday & Friday

Children to write their own recipe for the perfect Superhero!

SUPERTATO - WB 22.06.20

I hope you have enjoyed last week learning all about influential real life Superheroes, Florence Nightingale & Mary Seacole.

This week we would be learning all about the story of Supertato, Veggies in the Valley of doom by Sue Hendra & Paul Linnet.

 

We would begin the week by exploring the story (please see an attachment below to access the story). We would find out the following:

  • Who are the characters?
  • Where is the story set?
  • What happens in the beginning, middle and end?

 

Once you have explored the story in school we would have completed the following activities across the week:

  • Tuesday - children to choose their favourite character from the story, draw and label them.
  • Wednesday - Create a story board. This will help when you have to retell the story (please see story board template below)
  • Thursday - Retell the beginning and middle of the story
  • Friday - Retell the ending of the story

 

 

Please remember to send your creations into class dojo so that they can be shared with both your class teachers and your peers! We cannot wait to see all of your wonderful stories :)

 

Real life Superheroes - Florence Nightingale & Mary Seacole WB 15.06.20

I hope you have enjoyed your first week learning all about real life Superheroes for our new topic!

This week we would spend some time researching some real life Superheroes. 

 

Please begin the week by using the internet to research Florence Nightingale. Can you find out:

  • Who is she?
  • Why is she a real life Superhero?

 

There are lots of brilliant videos about Florence Nightingale online including some stories all about her: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Frow559jWSE 

 

Once you have found out lots of information about her we would like you to create a mindmap of all these amazing facts. This will come in helpful as you will then need to create a fact file all about her. Don't forget you need to include your ETWR'S, a title, subheadings, a picture/ photo and most importantly lots of facts!

 

Then towards the end of the week we would like you to then research and learn all about Mary Seacole. How is she similar/ different to Florence Nightingale? Why is she also an influential real life Superhero?

 

If you have time and wish to create a fact file all about Mary Seacole too then that would be fantastic! 

 

Please remember to send your creations into class dojo so that they can be shared with both your class teachers and your peers!

Real life Superheroes - WB 08.06.20

 This week in Year 1 we would be introducing the children to their new topic - Superheroes!

Let’s put on our capes and discover our superpowers as we search for an answer to the question, ‘What is a superhero?’

 

This time is the perfect opportunity to celebrate our Real life Superheroes...

 

Please use the internet to find out all about Real life Superheroes! Please spend the start of the week researching:

  • Who is a real Superhero?
  • Why are they a Superhero?

 

It would be a good idea to write a bullet pointed list of all those real life superheroes to share with your teachers and peers! :) 

 

Then spend the week focusing on some of our important, real life superheroes such as:

  • Doctors & Nurses
  • Police
  • Firefighters

 

It may be a good idea to spend one day researching each of the above. We would love to see some drawings of these real life superheroes with some information describing their role and the importance of it. Remember to use your Every Time Writing Rules! 

 

Please remember to send your creations into class dojo so that they can be shared with both your class teachers and your peers!

It's your turn to become an author for the week! WB 01.06.20

So this would now be our final term in Year 1! It is such a shame we have missed so much time together.Firstly a huge WELL DONE to all of the children who have been working so hard at home and sending in all their work via dojo. I know it has been such a difficult time for many and keeping safe and happy during this time is the upmost important thing!

 

We are going to begin our final topic next week so that the children who have chosen to return to school are completing the same tasks as the children learning at home, so this week it is your chance to become an author for the week!

 

Following on from learning about the story of 'Katie in London' we would like you to create your versions of the story. This can still follow the theme of exploring London like Katie did or you could choose somewhere you have been before on holiday or somewhere you would love to visit! There is plenty of time to research new places and find out famous landmarks within them.

 

Some ideas are the following:

Miss Needham in Disneyland

Mrs Mclean in Paris

Mrs Haley in Spain

Mrs Ford in Southend

 

We would love to see some illustrations to go with your stories or even some photos of the place you have visited. 

Please remember to send your amazing fact files into class dojo so that they can be shared with both your class teachers and your peers :) 

Bright Lights, Big City - Paddington Bear WB 18.05.20

I hope you have all enjoyed learning about Her Royal Majesty, The Queen and finding out all about the Royal Family and Buckingham Palace.

For our final week of this topic we would be learning all about the adventures of Paddington Bear!

 

To begin the week we would encourage you to explore the character of Paddington bear and Michael Bond's famous stories. We would like you to create a character profile by answering the following:

  • Where was he born?
  • What does he look like/ What does he wear?
  • What is his favourite food?
  • Why does he need looking after?
  • What is his character like? 

 

You could also draw Paddington to help :) 

 

Paddington had a famous scrapbook, so please explore this if you have time too! We would then like you to think about all the places in London that you think Paddington would like to visit. It would be a good idea to represent this as a list in your yellow book. If you are writing a list then don't forget those bullet points!

 

Once you have found out all about Paddington Bear your task is by the end of the week is to write a letter to Aunt Lucy as Paddington Bear persuading her to come and visit London! Remember your letter must have the following:

  • At the start of your letter it needs to be addressed to Aunt Lucy using Dear/To
  • Use Every Time Writing Rules throughout
  • Must be persuasive, so you really need to think of some amazing adjectives to describe London!
  • At the end of your letter it needs to be addressed from Paddington because remember you are writing as Paddington

 

If you have time and are able to your parents/carers may even let you watch the film of Paddington Bear! It is a personal favourite of Miss Needham's. 

 

Please remember to send your amazing fact files into class dojo so that they can be shared with both your class teachers and your peers :)
