Thursday 21st May – Year 1

Good Morning Year 1,

It’s time to celebrate some of the fabulous work that you have been doing at home during the past week …

big well done to all of you! Keep working hard and setting the standard at home!

 

Here are today’s activities:

1. Sounds-Write Phonics

2. Reading/Literacy

(Link to Science)

Follow these instructions to plant your seeds:

·        Find a small pot that you can plant your seeds in. Don’t worry if you don’t have a pot – with an adult, you can very carefully cut a plastic water bottle in half (and then you could even decorate it – if you would like to).

·        Fill half of your pot with soil.

·        Take your seeds and sprinkle them on top of the soil.

·        Take another handful of soil and put it on top of the seeds (so that the seeds are covered and you can’t see them).

·        Pour a small amount of water onto the soil.

·        Leave your flower to grow in a suitable place – water it when necessary (check your packets for how often)!

 

Question to think about: What is your seed going to grow into?

Choose one of these factories and create a poster to advertise and show people what type of shoes they make and what their factory looks like inside to make people want to visit their factory!
