# Home Learning Tasks WC 5.10.20

Hello Y1! Here are this week's home learning tasks:

Monday 5th October

English:

For the next two weeks you will create your own story based on the story of ‘Honey and Trouble’.

LO: To generate ideas for a recycled story.

In this lesson, we start the process of 'recycling' the story of 'Honey and Trouble' by choosing new animal characters to swap on our story map.

Maths:

For the next two weeks we will be learning about shape and patterns.

LO: To recognise, name and describe 3D shapes.

In this lesson you will learn the vocabulary of the properties of shapes and use that language to describe 3D shapes.

Task: Complete maths lesson 1 worksheet.

Science:

LC: Which materials float and sink?

In this lesson, we will be investigating different materials and their properties. We will be exploring which materials float and which materials sink, then we will be making comparisons while looking at their properties. Do all hard materials sink? Do all soft materials float? You will need a piece of paper and a pencil. If you would like to take part in the experiment you will need a coin or small metal object, a cotton ball or pad, stones, a pencil and a bowl of water. Otherwise, you can watch me conduct the experiment while observing the outcomes.

Task: Complete science lesson 4 worksheet.

Tuesday 6th October

English:

LO: To tell a story from memory.

In this lesson, we talk through and 'step' our new recycled version of 'Honey and Trouble'.

Maths:

LO: To describe and classify 3D shapes.

In this lesson you will continue to learn how to describe the properties of shapes and how to sort them (classify them) into groups based on their properties.

Task: complete maths lesson 2 worksheet.

Wednesday 7th October

English:

LO: To explore character through what they do, say, think and feel

In this lesson, we use our character writing toolkit to explore the main inner quality of our new recycled animal character, recycling our song from lesson 7 and thinking of adjectives to describe our character's appearance and personality.

Maths:

LO: To identify 2D shapes

In this lesson you will identify and name 2-D shapes, recognise shapes in different orientations and identify key properties of 2D shapes.

Task: Complete maths lesson 3 worksheet.

Geography:

LC: How do people move around in London?

In today's lesson, we join Miss Browne in learning about the different modes of transport used by people in London. We consider which of these modes of transport are the cleanest, and the negatives and benefits of each. We finish the lesson by having a go at reading a London Underground map.

Thursday 8th October

English:

LO: To use exclamations

In this lesson, we explore sentences in our 'Honey and Trouble' story that express big feelings, and practise writing them with an exclamation mark.

Maths:

LO: To describe and classify 2D shapes.

In this lesson you will describe 2-D shapes using mathematical vocabulary and then classify them into two groups.

Task: complete maths lesson 4 worksheet.

Science:

LC: Which materials are absorbent?

In this lesson, we will be learning about absorbency. We will test a variety of household materials and compare how absorbent each of them is. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil to complete today's lesson. For the experiment, if you would like to take part, you will need: a sponge or cloth, plastic bag or cup, foil, cardboard or paper, cotton wool or tissue. If you do not have these materials, you can watch me complete the experiment while observing the outcomes.

Friday 9th October

English:

LO: To find key information in the text

In this lesson, we practise our reading strategies and look for information and clues to help us answer questions about one of our new recycled characters.

Maths:

LO: To recognise and create repeating patterns

In this lesson you will explore and create shape and colour patterns. You will then be able to describe and continue patterns using 2-D shapes.
