Year 1

This page has been set up to support home learning for Year 1 pupils whilst the school is closed due to the Coronavirus.  Each week a Home Learning Overview will be uploaded by 8am Monday morning for parents/carers to access, along with additional resources and web-based links for pupils to explore.  Should you have any questions, please contact the Year 1 team via email using this email address: year1@southwood.bardaglea.org.uk.  One of the Year 1 team will check the inbox on a daily basis and get back to you as soon as possible.  Please note that we are setting home learning activities to support routine and education, however we do not expect parents/carers to teach new concepts and we understand that many of you are trying to work from home too.  At the very least, pupils should have opportunities to share books and practise basic numbers skills.

Text: Bedtime for Monsters by Ed Vere

Reading focus: inference

Read up to: HOT BUTTERED TOAST – think about the many different references to food and eating (knife and fork, ketchup, delicious, hot buttered toast.

Think about what the monster might be going to find to eat. Think about the following questions:

  • What or who is the monster hunting for?
  • What do you think the monster’s food would look like?
  • The monster is going to eat something on toast, what could it be?

 

Create a menu for the monster: think about what he would like to eat in the morning for breakfast, for lunch and for dinner. Don’t forget to include hot buttered toast and ketchup? Draw images of the food that are on the monster’s menu and label them.

 

Encourage the children to use expanded noun phrases (adjectives) to describe the monster’s food (e.g. warm tasty porridge covered in honey etc.), capital letters and full stops, neat handwriting that is consistent in size, finger spaces between words and conjunctions to join ideas together (e.g. and).

 

Don’t forget to share your monster menus with us by emailing them to the year group email address that can be found at the top of the page.

Phonics:

Tuesday

Reading focus: author intent

Re-read the text again – think about the actions of the monster, where it lives, what it does and the places it goes.

 

Look carefully at the text and the way in which it is written – some of the text is in bold, some words are all in capital letters and some are written in different fonts and have a different layout.

 

Think about the following questions that relate to author intent:

  • Why do you think the author has used different capital letters for some words? (e.g. scratch and ouch?)
  • Why has the author flattened the word squashed?
  • Why has the author pushed the letters together in the word squished?
  • Why are the words BUMP BUMPTY BUMP written so that they go up and down?
  • What impact does this have on the reader?

 

These words are examples of calligrams – this is a word that is written into a shape or layout to create the word visually.

 

Chose a word from the text (e.g. delicious, dark, smiling, forest, gloop, imaging, scratch, squished, squashed or a word of your choice) and create a calligram to show its meaning.

 

Here are some examples:

 

 

 

Remember to add colour and think carefully about what the word means so that you are create it visually.

 

Don’t forget to share your calligrams with us by sending them to the year group email address at the top of the page.

Wednesday

Writing focus: alternative ending (planning)

Re-read the story and continue us to: …very HUNGRY INDEED?

 

Think about the following questions:

  • Where has the monster gone in the story so far? Where else could he go?
  • What has happened in the story so far?
  • What is the monster looking for?
  • What is the monster on his own?
  • In the story there are different that are hiding from the monsters (e.g. bird, rabbit, owl), why are they hiding?
  • Why did the monster leave his bicycle at the swamp?

Think about the questions and then think carefully about what could happen at the end of the story – you are going to plan the ending of the book. Consider the following questions:

  • Where else does the monster go?
  • Who else hides from him?
  • Does he get anything out of his red backpack?
  • Does he find anything to eat to stop him being hungry?
  • What does he find to eat?
  • What is the last picture in the book going to be?

 

Create a plan to answer the above questions and to write an alternative ending to the story (you can you a story s, images, notes or anything that will help you when writing your ending).

 

Don’t forget to share the planning for your ending of the story with us by sending them to the year group email address at the top of the page.

Thursday

Writing focus: alternative ending

Read through your plan that you created yesterday for the alternative ending of the story.

 

Think carefully about each section and how these must all relate to each other – remember your ending must make sense with the story that you’ve read so far.

 

Look at your plan and write the ending. Remember to use capital letters and full stops, exclamation marks and question marks to end a sentence, expanded noun phrases (adjectives to describe), correct spelling for Year 1 common exception words, conjunctions to join ideas together (e.g. and, becuase). The story is written in the present tense – try to use this in your writing (e.g. feeling, closer, climbs etc.)

 

Think carefully about the vocabulary you use – can you write represent some words in calligram like the author has done?

Friday

Writing focus: editing and drafting

  • Does it make sense? (If not, correct it)
  • Have I got a capital letter at the start of each sentence? (If not, add them in)
  • Does each sentence end in a full stop, exclamation mark of question mark? (if not add them in)
  • Have you spelt the following words correctly – mountains, monster, because, hungry? (If not correct them now).
  • Have you written in the present tense? (If not correct this now).

 

Once you are happy with your edited alternative ending choose your favourite part and draw an image to represent it. Look carefully at the images in the book and try to copy their style.

Text: Bedtime for Monsters by Ed Vere

Prediction focus:

 

Re-read the story and stop at ….THIS monsters wants…

 

Think carefully about the story and what we know about the monster; answer the following questions:

  • Where does the monster go in the story?
  • Where does he end up?
  • Is the monster scary?
  • Why is the monster on his own?
  • What time of day is the story set?
  • The author using questions (rhetorical questions – these are questions that the author using to make the reader think but doesn’t want answer form you) throughout the story – did you see any?
  • What do you think the monster will do once he opens the door?

 

Using the style of the images and the writing (try to use calligrams to add to the meaning of the text) and write the text in an interesting way write the ending of the story. It can only be TWO pages with the image.

 

Remember to use capital letters to start your sentences, either a full stop, exclamation mark or a question mark to end your sentence, expanded noun phrases (adjectives to describe), correct tense (this is written in the present tense), conjunctives to join your ideas together (e.g. and, but, because, then, etc.), correct letter formation that is the same size and finger spaces as well as the correct spelling for Common Exception Words (CEWs) for Year 1.  

Phonics:

 

  1. Read a story for at least 15 minutes.

Tuesday

Reading focus – summary

Read the whole story from beginning to end – then look at your predictions that you have made. Were you correct?

 

Today we want you to think of the blurb – the blurb is the back cover of the book and entices the reader to buy / read the book. It gives the reader some information but not all of the story so that they want to read the book themselves.

 

The blurb for Bedtime for Monsters is just one rhetorical question: DO YOU ever wonder if somewhere, not too far away, there might be…. Monsters? It also has an image of the monster on his bicycle and a house with two labels: monster and your house.

 

Today’s task is to create a new blurb for the book: think carefully how to summarise the story without giving too much away to the reader.

 

It must have writing (you can have more than one sentence if you prefer) and must also include an image.

 

Remember it must entice the reader to want to read the whole story.

Phonics:

 

  1. Read a story for at least 15 minutes.

Wednesday

Reading focus: comparing books

Now that you have read the whole story and how the characters and setting you can start to think about any similarities and differences it has.

 

Think about the following questions:

  • Do you know any other stories that have monsters in them? What are they called?
  • Do you know any stories where the character goes on a journey? What are they called?
  • Can you think of any stories where the character lives in a cave? What is it called?
  • Can you think of a story where the character always carries a bag? What is it called?
  • Is there a story that you know that changes the style of the writing in the book? What is it called?
  • Are there any stories that you know about bedtime? What are they called?

 

Think carefully about different stories and how you can compare them to Bedtime for Monsters by Ed Vere. Use the sentence starters to help you compare stories.

 

Bedtime for Monsters reminds me of ______________ because they both have monsters in them.

Bedtime for Monsters is similar to _________________ because _______________________.

The story ___________________ and Bedtime for Monsters have _____________________.

Bedtime for Monsters is set during the day and ends up at bedtime, this is the same as _____________________.

 

Remember when you are comparing the two stories you need to justify your answer so you’ll need to use ‘because’. Don’t forget to use capital letters to start your sentences, either a full stop, exclamation mark or a question mark to end your sentence.

Thursday

Reading focus: justification of ideas and opinions.

As part of reading it is good to be able to formulate ideas about the books you read – this means to question what you like and dislike about the book, anything that puzzles you and to think of questions you would like to ask to author if you have the chance or any questions that you now have after reading the book.

 

Use a grid to present your ideas for each category:

  • Likes – what did you like about the book?
  • Dislikes – what didn’t you like about the book?
  • Puzzles – what puzzles you about the book?
  • Questions – what questions do you have now that you have read the book?

For each category you need to have at least three responses.

Remember to justify your ideas so you need to use ‘because’.  Don’t forget to use capital letters to start your sentences, either a full stop, exclamation mark or a question mark to end your sentence.

Friday

Writing focus: book review

Read the text again and look back through the work that you have completed over the past three weeks.

 

Today you are going to think about the story and how you would recommend it to someone else.

 

You will need to think about the following questions:

  • Whether the book is fiction or non-fiction.
  • Who would you recommend the book to? What age range is it suitable for and what interests might they have?
  • Would you recommend / not recommend the book and why?
  • What illustration (drawing) would be best to review the book?

Remember to use capital letters to start your sentences, either a full stop, exclamation mark or a question mark to end your sentence, expanded noun phrases (adjectives to describe), correct tense (this is written in the present tense), conjunctives to join your ideas together (e.g. and, but, because, then, etc.), correct letter formation that is the same size and finger spaces as well as the correct spelling for Common Exception Words (CEWs) for Year 1.

Tuesday

Today we will focus on an Exclamation sentence. You may have seen these in writing before. Do you know what they end with? An Exclamation mark!

Do you know what the difference is between an exclamation sentence and a statement sentence? An exclamation sentence is used to show expression or feeling when writing.

 

Compare these two sentences:

I like cake. (This is a statement as it is just telling us a fact.)

That hurt! (I used an exclamation mark to show that it hurt a lot!)

 

Watch:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/zqbjy4j

Write 10 of your own exclamation sentences.

Core Activity

Additional Activity

Monday

You will need an adult to help with some of these tasks.

Watch the video in the link and find out all about Pop Art. https://www.tate.org.uk/kids/explore/what-is/pop-art

Pop is young, bold and fun. It is popular art, art for all. Some Pop Artists include Richard Hamilton, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

Richard Hamilton made collages from images from glossy magazines. Roy Lichtenstein used dots to make his paintings look like comic books.

In your home, find five objects or pictures that could be used to inspire Pop Art (there are lots - it could be a tin of soup, a cereal box, a magazine advert, a comic, a logo from a pair of trainers, or even a pair of trainers!).

Choose one of your objects. Draw and colour it using one of the pop art techniques from the video you watched.

Tuesday

Watch the video about screen printing. https://www.tate.org.uk/kids/explore/kids-view/meet-printmaker

Can you find some things in your home that have been printed? Bags, t-shirts, duvet covers, wallpaper, poster? Which ones use photographs and which ones use drawings created by artists?

Make your own printed art piece.

Find some objects and materials to print with - brush a thin layer of paint onto the back of a leaf, for example, and press it onto some paper.

 

Or if you are super creative: https://www.parents.com/fun/arts-crafts/kid/diy-silk-screen-printing/

Monday

Simple Moving Picture

With the help of an adult watch the video on how to make a simple moving picture.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NL7N62WjBTA

 

Now, with the help an adult try to make your own smiley face sad face moving picture.

You will need:

2 pieces of paper that are the same size

A pencil

 

Instructions:

Draw a smiley face on the bottom piece of paper. On the top piece of paper, trace over the face exactly, but change the happy face to a sad face. Roll the top piece of paper around the pencil so that it is almost attached so when you roll the paper back and forth across the bottom piece, it moves and changes the face.

 

Take a photo or video of your work and put it on your class dojo.

Pop Up Card

With the help of an adult, watch the video on how to make pop-up cards.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c4MNvCVotI

 

In this video, there are 5 different Pop Up Card techniques. Watch all of them before you have a go at making the accordion pop card in the video (the first card made in the video).

 

You will need:

Paper (two pieces, hopefully different colours)

Scissors (you will need an adult to help you)

Glue (of any kind, it does not need to be the ones used in this video)

 

Instructions:

Think about who you can make this card for, maybe for someone you haven’t seen in a while (You could make an ‘I miss you’ card). First, fold your piece of paper in half. Fold the second piece of paper (the one going inside your card) accordion style. Once the whole piece is folded, fold it in half. Glue the inner sides together so it makes a fan when it is opened. Use a heavy book to hold it together while it dries. Now decorate your card, leaving a space for the accordion fan when it is ready. Use glue on both sides of the fan. Match up the middle/fold of your card with the middle/fold of the fan so it opens when you open the card.

 

Take a photo or video of your work and put it on your class dojo.

Tuesday

Your Moving Picture

Now have a go at making your own moving picture, using the technique you used yesterday.

You will need:

2 pieces of paper that are the same size

A pencil

 

Instructions:

Instead of a smiley/sad face, think of another picture that you could draw that can have a changing part. Be as creative as you can! Maybe you could draw a dog, superhero, anything you like! Use the same instructions as yesterday to create your own moving picture.

 

Take a photo or video of your work and put it on your class dojo.

A different Pop Up Card

With the help of an adult, watch the video again.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c4MNvCVotI&t=14s

Choose one of the other ways and of making a Pop up card, from the video and have a go at making it. Get an adult to help you.

 

Take a photo or video of your work and put it on your class dojo.

Wednesday

Making A Slider

 

You will need:

A picture story book

Two pieces of paper

Scissors (You will need an adult to help you)

Glue

 

Instructions:

Use a story that you have read this week, or a story that you know well. First, draw a background/setting/place from the story. This picture should have some kind of road/path that a character could walk across. You will need to cut a line along this road/path. DO NOT cut all the way through the paper, you need to leave it attached on each side so your slider does not come out.

Next you will use the second piece of paper to create your character. Draw your character and cut it out. Also cut out a long, straight strip of paper and attach it to the back of your character. This strip of paper can now be inserted into the cut line that you made on your background and your character can slide along the setting.

 

See the attached PDF for further instructions/images. Take a photo or video of your work and put it on your class dojo.

Slider

 

Make the next picture of the story you have chosen. Can you make it so it uses the same character but a different background? Can it slide through both backgrounds?

Thursday

 

Levers

 

You can use the attached additional resources which use the story: Jack and the Beanstalk. Or you can create your own Lever art by using a story of your own choice.

 

You will need:

2 pieces of paper (or the attached worksheets)

Scissors

Split Pins (or something similar if you do not have these, such as bobby pins, paper clips, or string/wool that is tied in a knot at both ends)

 

Instructions:

Decide how long you want your lever to be. Cut it out.

Colour and cut out the picture of Jack (or the character you have chosen). Stick it to the end of the lever. Cut a small hole at the end of the lever for the pivot.

Make a hole in the other piece of paper (which you should have drawn as the background/setting) where you want the pivot to be stuck. Put the split pin in both holes and attach at the back.

Slider and Lever

 

Combine both sliders and levers to create your own dinosaur bursting out of an egg!

 

You will need:

2-3 pieces of paper (or the attached worksheets)

Scissors

Split Pins

 

Instructions:

On one piece of paper, draw and cut out a small dinosaur and an egg that is larger than the dinosaur. Cut out a long, straight strip of paper and attach it to the back of the dinosaur.

On the other piece of paper, cut a small slit for the dinosaur strip to fit through (this is your slider part).

 

Now you will stick the bottom half of the egg over the bottom of the dinosaur. Be careful to only glue along the bottom sides, so the dinosaur can still slide up and down. Attach the top of the egg to the side using a split pin so the egg can open and close.

Friday

 

Wheels

 

You can use the attached additional resources which use the story: Little Red Riding Hood. Or you can create your own Wheels art by using a story of your own choice.

 

You will need:

2 pieces of paper (or the attached worksheets)

Scissors

Split Pins (or something similar to this)

 

Instructions:

One piece of paper will be the background.

The other piece of paper needs to be cut into a circle, with a small hole cut into the middle for the split pin to go through.

Place the disc/circle behind one side of the other piece of paper, with some of it sticking out at the side. Put the split pin through both the top piece of paper and the disc/circle.

Carefully, you will need to cut a small window on the top piece of paper so you can see the disc behind it. You will need an adult to help you. Do not cut through the disc!

Now you can draw on the disc. Draw three different pictures, turning the disc each time so the other pictures are hidden and the picture revealed in the window is different each time.

Your Choice!

 

Choose your favourite D&T activity that you completed this week and do it again! This time use a different design/story to create it. See if you can combine two techniques together on the one page so that two parts of your picture move!

 

Don’t forget to send your pictures to your teacher on Class Dojo!
