Year 1 Home Learning

This week we have been reading the story ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea: Kerr, Judith, Kerr, Judith: Books

Plan a tea party for you and someone you live with or one of your toys. You could write an invitation to that person. Remember to include the time and date. You could also design a menu, what will you eat at your party? Will you have something to drink? Not all the water in the tap like the Tiger though!!!

Draw a picture or write about your tea party and bring it in to share with the class next week.

Log in to MyMaths and Bug club over the weekend too.

Planting bulbs

Today we started talking about the changing weather and the seasons. What season are we in now? Have you seen any signs of this season?

Although Spring feels quite far away we have planted some bulbs so we can have a beautiful display of flowers when the time comes. First we had to get the weeds out and we even found last years potatoes. Then we could get started. Can you remember what we had to do? How did we plant the bulbs?

Handa’s Surprise

This week we have been reading Handa’s surprise by Eileen Browne. Today we acted out the story. Use the pictures below to tell someone at home the story. We had so much fun we retold the story twice!

This afternoon we tried some of the fruits from the story. We tried a soft yellow banana, ripe red mango, creamy green avocado and purple passion fruit (juice). There was a mixed reaction to some of them but we were fearless and tried new things! Which was your favourite fruit?

This week we have been reading the story ‘Dinosaur Roar’. Look on your class blogs to share the story with someone at home. You could choose your own animal to write some sentences about.

E.g Penguin soft, penguin cuddly. Penguin warm, penguin snuggly!

Challenge- Can you think of a sentence that rhymes?

This week you also had passwords for Bug Club and MyMaths sent home in the front of your reading record. Have a go at signing in with them and looking at a book or some of the activities.

End of term Goodbye 2S

Dear 2S,

It’s the last week of term and usually that would be filled with celebration and reminiscing as we remember our year together. The great things we have done and memories that we have shared.

Even though we have had to miss out on a term together, we certainly crammed a lot into the 2 terms we did have! As we look back through the photographs of just some of the wonderful things we have done we are smiling and thinking about all the learning, growing and laughing that we enjoyed this year!

There are so many things to think about and remember but we have tried to write a few below to remind you.

Autumn Term – Horniman Museum visit, making and showing our toys at our own toy exhibition, performing in the christmas play, experiments in science (including the challenge of making a backwards marble run… impossible!!) The beautiful teddy bear sketches (that we just had to leave up all year to admire for longer).

Spring Term – Albany theatre visit, baking bread (mmmm the delicious smell it left in the classroom), a visit from the fire brigade, rainbow theatres performance and then our class assembly.

What we will remember the most though is the amount of reading and singing we enjoyed together – you need only sing 1 line of a song and everyone is joining in and smiling.

We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures and remembering your time in Year 2. Comment with what you have enjoyed this year and your memories from Year 2.

It has been an unusual end to the year and we have missed you all. We wish you all a lovely and relaxing summer and are looking forward to seeing how much you have grown in September.

Love from,

Miss Spicer, Miss Partington and Marvin 🐶
