Don't forget that there are still some activities to complete on My Maths if you haven't already. There will be more added this week, so keep checking your account. 

 

Daven Primary School is a 'Rights Respecting School' and each week we will be focusing on an 'Article of the Week'. This weeks Article is 23 which states 'A child with a disability has the right to live a full and decent life with dignity, and as far as possible, independence, and to play an active part in their community.'

I have attached to the 'Files to download' at the bottom of the page, a document which includes a range of activities that you can do together as a family at home. Also for your information, I have attached the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which lists all the articles in child friendly language.

Click the following link https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/books/free-ebooks, create a free parent account, click on ebooks for age 4-5 or ebooks for age 5-6 and choose a book to read.

After you have finished reading a book, answer some questions about it. See below for question ideas:

  • Who is/are the main characters?
  • Where is the story set?
  • What is your favourite part of the story?
  • What is your least favourite part of the story?
  • What happens at the beginning of the story?
  • What happens at the end of the story? Did you think that was going to happen? If no, what did you think would have happened?

See ‘Year 1 questions for reading’ in files to download for more questions.

Below are some tips to support reading at home 

 

English

In your pack, are 5 weeks of writing activities linked to books. You can search the books on YouTube to watch if you don’t have the book at home. In your old pack, there were sound mats and Year 1 writing targets - use these to support your writing.

 

Watch the book ‘What the ladybird heard at the seaside’ 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=PvguZ1YvKLw

Below are all the writing activities for this week (13th July). Remember to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops, the conjunction and.

 

Monday – In the story, Lanky Len and Hefty Hugh tried to steal something that didn’t belong to them. Can you make a wanted poster for them, detailing their attempted crimes? Remember to describe each of the characters so that they can be found. Use noun phrases to describe one of the characters. A noun phrase is an adjective followed by a noun. E.g. long legs, stripy top

Tuesday - ladybird came up with a plan to stop the robbers from stealing the mermaid’s hair. What was that plan, and did it work? Prepositional phrases tells you the position of an object. E.g. under the water, on top of the head, over the wave. Examples of prepositional words to use: over, on top of, under, next to, behind

Wednesday –If the ladybird had asked you for help in the story, how would you have tried to stop the robbers from stealing the mermaid’s hair? Can you make your own plan? Use adverbs such as carefully, gently, safely etc.

Thursday –The mermaid was very thankful to the ladybird for stopping the robbers from taking her hair. Can you write a note from the mermaid to the ladybird, thanking him for his help? Exclamation sentences start with What or How. E.g. What an amazing friend you are! How kind are you?

Friday - At the end of the story, the robbers realised that their plan hadn't worked. Where do you think they went next? Do you think they ever tried to steal again? Use some of these story openers: Once upon a time, One day, This morning, After a while, Next, Then, After that, Later, At night time,
