Bubble Closure

22nd March 2021

 

 

Monday:

Today we would like the children to have a go at completing an observational drawing of a flower. Have a look in your garden (or online) at some different flowers and have a go at completing a realistic drawing of this flower. Send a photo of your work to year1@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk

 

Tuesday:

Tuesday is usually our PE day so we have included some PE activities for you to have try at home. Below you will find a PDF version of PE snakes and Ladders. You can either print this off or write down which squares you land on. Each square has a different instruction. Some of these will relate to you needing to move your playing piece around the board. Others will involve a PE instruction.

 

Wednesday:

In English we have been reading Hansel and Gretel. In the story, Hansel gets some pebbles and drops them so they can find their way back home. Hansel and Gretel follow the pebbles back home at night time as the pebbles are reflective and reflect the moon’s light. Research why materials are reflective. Can you think of any other materials that might be reflective? Make a list of all of the reflective materials that you can think of.

 

Thursday:

Today’s lesson will be on RE. Last week the children started to learn about the story of Easter. We would like the children to watch this video and go through the Easter Story PowerPoint below. The Christian Story of Easter - BBC Teach 

 

Once they have watched the video and read the PowerPoint, they children are to have a go at sequencing the Easter Story. You can either use the documents below if you have a printer or the children can create their own story map of the Easter Story. 

 

Friday:

This afternoon our lesson is PSHE. We will be looking at our physical and emotional needs.

Things to think about:

  • What can we do to keep healthy?
  • What changes happen inside our body when we exercise?
  • Why do you think we need to drink water?
  • What do we mean by a ‘balanced’ diet?
  • Why is sleep important to our body?
  • Is there anything else that we need to make us feel happy and healthy?

There are lots of different things that help us to keep our body and minds healthy. We need to take care of our mental health needs as well as our physical needs.

 

Things I can do:

Doing these 5 things every day – or most days – will help us to be healthy, inside and out!

  1. Be Active - this means doing some exercise.
  2. Get Creative - this means making something.
  3. Be Mindful - this means focusing on the 'now' not thinking about the past or the future.
  4. Connect - this means being in touch with people, like friends and family.
  5. Give to others - this means doing acts of kindness to help others.

 

Can you think of something you can do for each one? Here are some ideas to get you started:

 

  1. Be Active - star jumps, running on the spot, dancing.
  2. Get Creative - drawing, puzzles, write a diary, making something.
  3. Be Mindful - colouring, drawing, watching the clouds, enjoying a book.
  4. Connect - talking to people, Skype, Facetime, playing a game together, writing a letter to someone.
  5. Give to others - help around the house, give someone a compliment, say kind things to family and friends.

 

Draw a large circle and split it into 5 sections. Then for each of the 5 sections, draw or write down your ideas of how you could look after yourself. Remember we are all unique (that means different and special!).

Week 9 Topic 

1st March-5th March

 

Monday- Wednesday

Complete the return to school activities. Choose which activities you would like to complete. (You do not need to complete them all)

 

Thursday

World Book Day taster menu

 

Friday

Wellbeing day

Week 8 Topic

22nd February-26th February

 

 

You can complete these activities in any order

 

Science

Make friends with a tree! Circle it with their arms, smell it, touch its bark and take a close look at its branches and leaves. Take rubbings of its bark, collect a few of its leaves and take a photograph of their tree to help with identification. Children could make a mini book all about their ‘own’ tree including their rubbings and leaf prints. Write independently about their tree.

 

Science

Learn that some trees are deciduous and some are evergreen. Look at pictures of both types of tree and read their names. Take a socially distanced walk around the local environment to look at people’s gardens and describe the trees they can see – deciduous or evergreen?

 

Note

Deciduous trees shed their leaves during autumn while evergreens keep their needle-like leaves all year round.

 

Art

Draw or paint a picture of a woodland creature. You could even make 3-D junk models of different creatures including foxes, badgers, birds, squirrels and owls.

 

Art

Look at Andy Goldworthy’s artwork using the internet. Using natural materials found outside, make your own artwork. You could use leaves, sticks, grass and anything else that can be found in the local environment.

 

Science

Bird watching- How many different types of bird can you spot at home in your garden or out on a walk. Use the bird spotting sheet to help you identify the birds that you see.

I am looking forward to seeing yours.

 

Tuesday

Tuesday

RE – Today in RE we will be learning about Noah’s Ark. Have a read through the story and discuss it. Have you heard of the song “The animals go in 2 by 2”?
