Week 8, 1st - 5th March
Welcome back to a second week of our pirates topic, and last week of online learning! There's a brand new pirate story and activities to match this week. Please do bear in mind there is no literacy activity for Thursday this week, as this is World Book Day and there will be other activities available.
Watch Miss Earl read a brand new pirate story below, and then have a go at filling out the speech bubbles to match the characters from the story.
Still thinking about yesterdays Night Pirates story, today we are going to practise our adjectives in our home learning one final time. The little girl pirates from the story stole lots of treasure - how many adjectives can you think of to describe the amazing treasure they stole? Have a go at writing some adjective sentences onto one of the sheets below.
Today is all about understanding what you have read. Pick either challenge one or challenge two, and have a go at carefully reading and then answering questions about what you have read. Watch Miss Earl's videos for more explanation!
Today is World Book Day! Have a look at the World Book Day section of the Year 1 Home Learning page for some fun activities. Don't forget to log in to your class teacher's Zoom at 9am with your costume or prop for some book-based fun, and again at 11am to find out who your masked reader is!
Today's activity is about spotting mistakes. The writing below is missing lots of capital letters and full stops - can you add them in to the correct places?
Week 7, 22nd-26th February
Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic half term with loads of fun and rest, and are ready for a new half term of learning. For the next few weeks we are going to be learning about all kinds of things to do with the big blue sea, starting with pirates!
Remember to just try your best with your writing - don't worry if you aren't sure if your spelling is right, just have a go at sounding it out! Miss Earl, Miss Cushnie and Mrs Tisi love seeing all your work, even if you didn't quite manage to finish it - just have a go, and enjoy the new topic. :)
Today, I want you to remind yourself all about adjectives. First of all, watch the video below of Miss Earl reading a pirate story and telling you all about todays activity. On the sheet below, either draw your own picture of a pirate or use one of the ones from the 'inspiration sheet' to help you. Then on the lines underneath, write a few sentences about your pirate, making sure you use adjectives to describe them!
There's a fun activity for you today! Watch Miss Earl's video explaining all about instructions - what they are and why we need them. Then, you'll need to print the sheet below in order to highlight or underline the time connective and bossy words for each instruction. Do have a go at making the pirate hat too, and send us a picture! :)
Today, I want you to have a go at writing your own instructions. But don't panic! First, watch Miss Earl explain a bit more in the video below. Then have a try at using time connectives and bossy words to write instructions for anything you like. It could be how to build a very simple Lego model, play your favourite game or just tie your shoe laces! There is a word bank on the sheet below you can use to help you.
Another really fun activity today! We are going to learn a bit about pirate flags. Watch Miss Earl explain a little below, and then have a go at completing the sheet. You will need to design a pirate flag, and then write a couple of sentences explaining why you chose that design.
Today is all about spotting words. Use the pirate wordsearch below to see if you can find all the different pirate words. If you aren't sure what one of the words means, ask your grown up! There are answers below as well - but no cheating!
