KS1 Summer 2020 Home Learning Week 1
For Maths this week there are separate units to follow for both Year 1 and Year 2. Each 'lesson' comes with a little video to explain the concept, an activity work sheet and an answer sheet. If you aren't able to print the worksheet, you can just look and discuss the questions with your parent or siblings, you could record your answers in your home learning book if you want to.

For your English work this week we would like you to use this video called 'Bubbles' to inspire your work. https://www.literacyshed.com/bubbles.html#
Here are some suggested ideas you could use for your English work this week:
Monday -If you have some, blow some bubbles in your garden and observe how they move and change. In your work book can you write a list of adjectives (Here is a video to remind you what adjectives are! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/zy2r6yc) to describe bubbles to someone who has never seen them before?
Tuesday - Imagine you were being transported in a magical bubble, just like the girl in the video. Draw a picture of the place your bubble would take you to and write a description of the things you can see outside your bubble.
Wednesday - Here is a poem about bubbles. Can you have a go at writing your own? You could have a look online for other bubble poems to give you some ideas.
Thursday - At the end of the video, the little girl does something kind by giving her bubbles to someone else. Can you write a list of ways that you could cheer someone else up if they were feeling sad?
Friday - Imagine you are the little girl from the end of the story who found the magical bubbles. Write a short thank you letter to the 'mystery person' who left you the bubbles and tell them where they took you.
In science this term we were going to be studying 'animals including humans' in Year 2 and 'weather in the UK' in year 1.
Year 2: This week we want you to think about things that are alive, never alive or used to be alive. Here is an link to some information about this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/zs73r82. When you have read and had a go at the activities on the webpage, can you create a grid on a page in your workbook with three columns 'Alive, Not alive, Not alive any more' and write at least 5 different things in each one.
Year 1: This week we are thinking about different types of weather. Here is a video about weather to get you thinking: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9g87ty. For your task this week we would like you to think of as many different types of weather as you can, for each weather type can you draw a symbol that shows that type of weather. Your symbols can be similar to those used on weather forecasts on the TV or you can make up your own. How many different types of weather can you think of?
Each week we are going to give you a different piece of music to listen to. We would like you to listen to the piece of music and write down or talk with your families about the music, do you like it? What does it make you think of? Can you hear and specific instruments in the music? You could look online to find out some information about the composer of the music.
This week's piece is: 'Water Music by George Frideric Handel.' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kuw8YjSbKd4
This term we were going to be finding out about the Jewish faith. This week we would like you to find out about four important things related to Judaism. A synagogue, a kippah, a menorah and the Star of David. Look at the power point attached below. When you have done that, in your workbook create a page which names, explains and shows a picture you have drawn of each of the four things.
For Geography this week we are looking at the country of Australia, where is is in the world and the name of the different states and territories of the country. Use the slides below to find out all about it then for your activity can you draw a map of Australia and label the states and territories? You could colour each area in a different colour on your map.
In art over the next few weeks we are going to be looking in closer detail at aboriginal art and the artistic skills that come with this! This week we are focusing on a skill called 'cross hatching' this means using different lines and patterns to fill in pictures that we have drawn. Use the slides below to find out more about Aboriginals and their beliefs. Your task once you've read the slides is to have a go at drawing some animals from the story in the slides and using cross hatching patterns to fill them in.
