Activities for Children in the event of a School Closure

Good Morning Everyone, We are now in our final week of home learning and we are looking at the rest of UK - Wales and Northern Ireland. 

 

Just wanted to wish you all a relaxing and happy summer break, I look forward to seeing you in September. Mrs Matticks

Year 1 Maths - 13.07.2020

Hello everyone! As this is our final week of home learning, I though it would be nice to have a recap over everything we have covered this year. These are not assessments so please don't worry about them, it is just a good way to spot any gaps in your child's learning and just to remind them of what topics we have covered this year. It would be good when working through these if you let your child have a go at working them out first and then support them if needed. As always, the document titled 'Year 1 Maths' will explain all the activities for the week but they are all pretty self-explanatory. 

 

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for working so hard at home with your children. I appreciate it probably wasn't the easiest thing to do at times, but you continuing their education at home will have helped them massively.

 

Thanks again and have a lovely summer break!😊

Year 2 Maths - Investigations - 13.7.20

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well.

As this is our last week of maths I thought you could have fun with maths. I have attached a range of problems, mysteries, puzzles, games and investigations for you. Just choose the ones that you would like to try.

 

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your hard work over the past weeks. A great big thank you to the wonderful children for continuing to work your socks off at home and a huge thank you to the grown ups for helping your children to continue their education and for your continued support during this challenging time. 

Have a wonderful summer break.

The national animal for England is the lion - Have a go at drawing one for art this week.

Year 2 Maths - Fractions - 6.7.20

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well.

This week our focus is fractions. There are two aspects of fractions - fractions of shapes and fractions of amounts. For each aspect I have attached a PowerPoint followed by a range of activities that will help you to develop your understanding. I have also added some problems and challenges so you can apply your knowledge. I have of course attached a mystery too!

Additional activities related to 'The boy who cried wolf'

Topic - Plants - 29.6.20

This week we are starting our topic on plants.

Why don't you have a go at growing something! It could be fruits, vegetables, flowers or plants. You could write a dairy following the growth of your plant. In your diary you could describe how you planted your seed, say what you have done to keep it healthy, you could measure it regularly and keep record of how it is growing and you could draw regular pictures of it to show what it looks like as it grows. 

I have attached a PowerPoint which tells you about the different parts of plants and some activities for you to label and match the different parts. There is also a word search and a plant and flower hunt for you to try.  

Fun experiments!

Looking for something fun and educational to do? Why not have a look at these easy experiment videos by my cousin Mr Pashler! These are easy to do at home experiments that your children could get involved in. You do not need to worry about the scientific explanation part of the videos as it is pitched at a very high level - just have fun with science!

Year 2 Maths - Measuring Length - 29.6.20

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well.

This week our focus is measuring length. I have attached a PowerPoint on how to use a ruler correctly and a template for a centimetre and metre ruler in case you don't have your own. I have included a wide variety of activities for you to practise measuring. Some of the sheets refer to measuring items in a classroom please just cross these out and add your own items. Of course feel free to ignore the sheets completely and just measure anything and everything you can find at home! There are many things that you could measure using a tape measure too! I have also added some problems and challenges so you can apply your knowledge. I know you like solving our mysteries so this week I have included two for you to have a go at!

Year 1 Maths - W/C 22.06.2020

Hello everyone! Hope you are all well. This week's Maths learning is all about finding one more and one less. This is to consolidate the children’s understanding of where the numbers come in a sequence, especially when we cross a tens boundary (e.g. 59 to 60). Understanding this is a crucial part of the children’s foundation with number as they need to have a concrete understanding of where numbers come in order.

 

As always, the document labelled 'Year 1 Maths' will explain all of the activities for the week. Please feel free to contact me via Dojo with any questions or concerns😊

Year 2 Maths - Odd & Even / Adding small numbers - 22.6.20

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well.

This week our focus is odd and even numbers and adding together three 1-digit numbers. I have included a wide range of activities for you to practise your maths skills. I have also added some puzzles, problems and investigations so you can apply your knowledge. Can you discover who stole the last leaf of autumn? 

Year 1 Maths - W/C 15.06.2020

This week's Maths learning is following on from last week, looking at most and least. We are now looking at the terms 'more than' and 'less than' and starting to use the mathematical symbols to show this. As always, the document labelled 'Year 1 Maths' will explain all the activities for this week.

 

Please get in touch with any questions via Dojo😊

Year 2 Maths - Time - 15.6.20

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well.

This week is about Time! I have started with 'o'clock and half past so the children can recap their learning and then progressed onto quarter past and quarter to and intervals of 5 minutes. I have put the documents in order to help you. For each step of learning I have attached a PowerPoint to introduce the concept and then included some worksheets to practise. You don't have to do them all just pick those that you think will help you to learn best. Can you solve the mystery of the missing football?

Shoes, shoes, shoes! - 8.6.20

If there are any of you that love shoes as much as I do then this is the activity for you! 

Design and make your own shoe. You could design a new shoe for Cinderella or you could just design your own perfect shoe. This is your own design so your shoe can be whatever you want it to be. You can choose how it looks and what it does. It could even have secret gadgets or magical powers, let your imagination go wild. Once you have completed your design you can turn it into a picture or collage or you could even try and make it! 

Fitness fun ideas - 8.6.20

Year 1 Maths - W/C 08.06.2020

Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well! This week's Maths is building upon our knowledge of partitioning numbers into tens and ones and we are looking at more or less. We will be comparing numbers using words like 'bigger' and 'smaller'. There are some games for you to play this week or some worksheets for some sessions, depending on how you're feeling that day. The document 'Year 1 Maths' will explain all the activities for this week.

 

As always, feel free to message me via Dojo with any questions!😊

Year 2 Maths - Money - 8.6.20

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well.

This week is all about Money! I have attached a sheet with coins and amounts on so you can familiarise yourself with money before you start your activities. Can you recognise all the coins, can you match the coins to the amounts, can you order them from smallest to largest and vice versa? Now you are ready to start your tasks.

I have included a wide range of activities which include, adding coins, making amounts using coins, finding change and solving problems. You don't have to do them all just pick those that you think will help you to learn best. Can you solve the mystery of the missing macaws?

Monday 8th June 2020 - World Oceans Day

Today is World Oceans Day where we celebrate our wonderful oceans and how we can protect them. Here are some fun activities you might want to have a go at and a PowerPoint explaining all about World Oceans Day and what it means. 

Art

Can you draw a castle like the one Cinderella went to for the ball?
This clip shows you how to draw 2 different ones. Have a try!

Fun topic ideas

If you would like to do something a little more creative this week. You could make or build your own tortoise or hare. You could paint or draw a picture, create a collage or use cardboard or building blocks to make your animal. If you are feeling particularly artistic you could design and make a home or habitat for your tortoise or hare.

Adjective Hunt

Have a hunt around your house or garden. How many objects can you find to describe with an adjective? Maybe you could even use two adjectives to create an expanded noun phrase. Do you have a comfortable bed in your house or a delicious, ripe tomato in your garden?

Year 1 Maths - W/C 01.06.2020

This week's Maths learning is all about place value and understanding 'tens' and 'ones'. We have done some practice of this in school but I feel we could have another go at it. The document labelled 'Year 1 Maths WC 01.06.20' will explain this weeks activities and resources. 

 

As always, please get in touch with any questions or concerns 😊

Year 2 Maths - Division - 1.6.20

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well and you have had a great half term holiday and enjoyed the lovely sunny weather.

We looked at multiplication a little while ago so I thought this week our maths for year 2 would focus on division. Just a quick reminder that dividing means to share into equal groups. Remember to use your fingers to help you with your calculations e.g. 30 ÷ 5 - count in 5s until you get to 30 putting a finger up each time and then count how many fingers you have.

I have included lots of opportunities for you to practise dividing and then some games and challenges for you to try. Plus our weekly mystery!

Fun Topic Ideas - 18.5.20

1. Design and make your own rainforest.

Create your very own rainforest habitat. You could create a collage, a drawing or a painting. You could build a rainforest in a shoe box, create a 3D rainforest or even use real plants and leaves. I'm sure you will have some fantastically creative ideas.  

2. Design your own rainforest creature.

Think about all the different creatures that live in the rainforest habitat and the features they have that enables them to survive. Design your very own creature to live in the rainforest environment. Does it have feathers, fur or scales? Is it brightly coloured or camouflaged? Does it live on the ground or in the canopy?

Year 2 maths - 18.5.20
Hello everyone, hope you are all keeping well.

Following on from our work with addition, this week our focus is subtracting a 2-digit number from a 2-digit number. To begin with I have included some practise with subtracting 1-digit numbers from 2-digit numbers and subtracting tens from 2-digit numbers to help you practise the skills you will need.

Once again I have created a guide on the method we use to subtract 2-digit numbers in school. I hope this helps. I have attached some worksheets and number cards to help you practise the method and if you have a dice you can generate your own numbers as well. Finally I have added some games so you can have fun using the subtraction method. Plus our weekly mystery!

Have Fun with Outdoor Maths - 11.5.20

Fun Topic Ideas - 11.5.20

1. House of Sweets

Make your own house made of sweets from the Hansel and Gretel Story. You could design it first before you make it. You can use your imagination and make your house out of anything you like e.g. Lego, cake, biscuits, cardboard boxes.  

2. Trail

Make your own trail for someone to follow like the children did in the Hansel and Gretel Story. It could be a trail inside or outside. You could use clues (in words or pictures) to lead them to the next clue or you could leave a trail of objects or pictures to follow.

Year 2 maths - 11.5.20
Hello everyone, hope you are all keeping well.

I hope you all enjoyed your maths work with shape last week. This week we are going to practise our addition skills with a focus on adding two 2-digit numbers together. To begin with I have included some practise with adding 1-digit numbers to 2-digit numbers and adding tens to 2-digit numbers to help you practise the skills you will need.

I have created a guide on the method we use to add two 2-digit numbers in school which also includes a number of examples. I hope this helps. I have attached some worksheets and number cards to help you practise the method and if you have a dice you can generate your own numbers as well. Finally I have added some games so you can have fun using the addition method. 

Of course I couldn't forget our weekly mystery!

Year 1 Maths - Week beginning 04/05/2020

This weeks focus is on counting in steps of 2s, 5s and 10s. Please see below the PDF called 'Year 1 Maths - 04.05.2020' which explains in detail all of the activities attached. It also has a set out structure for how you may want to do the activities, with something set out for each day. 
Please don't feel you have to do it this way, I just thought a more structured explanation would be beneficial for some people! Hope this is all okay and please reach out to me on Dojo with any questions.

Year 2 maths for this week - 4.5.20
Hello everyone, hope you are all keeping well.
I thought we would have a change for our maths focus this week. We are going to take a little break from number and have fun with shape. This week all our maths work is based around 2D and 3D shape. I have attached flash cards so you can practise the names of the shapes. I have included activities based around the properties of shapes, as well as riddles, puzzles, challenges, investigations and a scavenger hunt. There are also nets of 3D shapes for you to make. Once you have made them maybe you could turn them into something, possibly a cone mouse or a cuboid lion. I know your ideas will be far better than mine!
For those of you who are enjoying solving our mysteries I'm sure you will have fun with the mystery of Peter Rabbit and the beetroot burglar.
Enjoy your work with shape.
