Year 1 Maths: Tick, tock.

We use clocks to tell the time.

Clocks with hands are called analogue clocks.

Clocks with only numbers are called digital clocks.

To show o’clock the big hand (minute hand) will point to the 12. To show half past the big hand (minute hand) will point to the 6. Watch this to help you remember.

Now try this:

Ok. Now try half past:

Now try telling the time when you see a clock.

Year 1 Maths: Making maps

We use maps in our every day life. They help us find our way around. Pirates used to make treasure maps. Look at this pirate map:

Now see if you can say where these things are on the map. You will need direction words. Here are some to get you started: near, next to, alongside , behind, above, over, below, under, top, bottom

Keep using those maths words to describe direction…

Describing how to get to the treasure chest is called mapping a route. Did you manage to get the pirate there? Can you tell the pirate how to get from the treasure chest to Mermaid Rock?

Year 1: Geography: Mapping a journey.

Watch this story to help you think about journeys.

Now try describing these journeys:

Make a map of a journey that you know about. Start from your home. Are you…?

Going to the shops?

Going to school?

Going to the park?

Remember to draw the important things on your journey to help you find your way.

Use some direction words and arrows to describe the route. Happy mapping!

Distance Learning Year 1: W/B 06/07/2020

Here is this week’s plan.

Science: Can you build a boat that floats? Why do boats float?

You can use paper, or recyclables from home. A box? A bottle? Test some things out.

Here’s a way to build a boat from a bottle:

Music: Let’s all play our drum. Give it a try, you can clap it out!

Geography: Make a map of a journey you have been on. Listen to this story to help you get started. Then check out our separate Geography post.

Wellbeing: Have you ever found it hard to get someone to listen to you?

Have you ever been too busy to listen to someone else? What would you have done, if you were Bernard and you saw a monster?

English: Where the Wild Things Are. Listen to the story, and look at the pictures. Max goes on a journey to the land of the wild things. If you have the book, you can read along.

Now describe a journey you would like to make. It can be to somewhere real or a place you imagine. How will you get there? What dangers will you face? What will you need to take with you?

Maths: Try this game to practise telling the time. Daily maths is on a separate post on the blog.

Phonics: Tricky words. Here is a song about tricky words. Try the tricky words. Can you remember and spell them all?

Computing: Try these typing games to perfect your keyboard skills.
