Good morning Year 1.
English – Today I would like you to look through the book ‘The Jolly Postman or other people’s letters’ and see what you can tell from the words and pictures about the Jolly Postman. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpeo_0yoD0k
-What type of character is he?
-What does he like?
-What does he dislike?
-What questions would you like to ask him?
-What advise would you give him?
Maths – Practise counting in 2’s. What do you notice about the pattern? Are they odd or even? You can practise counting in 2’s by ordering the numbers using this game: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/caterpillar-ordering
Phonics – Practise the codes /s/ /ss/ and /ce/. Can you remember where we find each piece of code, the beginning, middle or end? Can you write word lists for each spelling?
Science – When we get mail it comes in different packages (envelopes, bags, cardboard). The postmen and women have to deliver mail no matter what the weather. I want you to investigate the best material to use to keep the mail dry. Use a range of materials and test how waterproof they are. Does it need to have any other properties? e.g. flexible, opaque, lightweight.
Have a great day!
