We found out that we are brilliant at speed bounce as this was where we scored the most points. We had lots of fun, which is what is important. We were good team players and encouraged each other to keep on trying. We didn't even let a little bit of rain stop us!

- Complete the worksheets all about 2D and 3D shapes. Watch the video clip before you start each one so that you know what to do.
- Then why not sort your own 3D shapes that you have at home? After all a ball is a sphere, a cardboard box could be a cube or a cuboid, look carefully at each shape when you are sorting so that you will know what is the similar and different about them. How many different ways can you sort them?
- We are spending more and more time outside now and there are lots of creatures to find. The next time you are out and about, use the minibeast hunting sheet to discover what lives near you.
- Take great care when you are lifting up rocks, stones and branches to look underneath, we are a lot bigger that they are.
- Remember to look and not touch, they are God's creatures.

One of our challenges was to learn a tongue twister called She Sells Sea Shells which is all about Mary Anning. We know that it wasn't really seashells that she was selling but fossils she had discovered on the beach with her brother Joseph. Adam told us it was really hard to remember the rhyme so he decided that writing the words out and reading them lots of times would help him to learn them. Alicia was really proud of herself when she managed to remember all of it off by heart. Take a look at her video to find out more. Why do you think it is called a tongue twister?
Can you create your own palm leaf? Draw around your hand on green paper and cut it out. Then write a prayer on that leaf that we could say on Palm Sunday. Email your prayers so that we can share them with each other.
Finish learning the Hosanna song. We started learning this song with Year Two. Learn the rest of it using this link: https://youtu.be/NVulFFARMSs to help you remember the very important words the crowd shouted when they saw Jesus. Email your videos so that we can share them on this Palm Sunday.
This week some of us have been deciding which dinosaur we think is the coolest. What do you think?
Here are the worksheets for the next part of measuring and then starting multiplication. The website listed on the Home Learning Week 2 box will take you to individual videos to go with each one.
- Continue to use the free website www.phonicsplay.co.uk to practise tricky words in particular 'Tricky Word Trucks' and 'Tricky Word Pairs'.
- The Oxford Owl website is free to join at the moment and has a wide range of free books to download onto your tablet that will fit in the colour band you are reading at.
- Learn the rhyme 'She Sells Sea Shells' off by heart. This is a tongue twister about Mary Anning the fossil hunter but we know that they weren't sea shells at all but fossils. There are lots of videos on the internet to help you learn it and putting actions will help you to remember the words. Please email any videos of this tricky task.
- Complete the measuring and multiplication worksheets. If you click on the website https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ and click on the videos for each lesson they will show you the key teaching ideas.
- Creative Maths Challenge. We know that we need to keep 2 metres away from each other at the moment but can you find 10 things that are 2 metres away from you?2 metres is about 3 footsteps or the length of a broom.
- What do you think is the coolest dinosaur? Use the website www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/shows/andys-dinosaur-adventures?page=2 and click on the dinosaur facts section to learn more about different dinosaurs. Decide which you think is the coolest and draw it and describe it using nouns, adjectives, capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. Don't forget to explain why you think that dinosaur is the coolest using the magic word because. Now create that dinosaur's habitat, you can draw it, paint it or make it 3D!
- Can you create your own dinosaur using just a cereal box and a pair of scissors? Follow this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvhtwduKIl and watch the video to find out more.
- Keep emailing pictures and photographs of your work, whatever that might be, so that it can be added to our photo gallery.
It has been a strange week not being at school but Year One have found lots of ways to learn at home.... Where will our learning journey take us next week?
Good morning everyone, I hope that day 3 is going ok for you all. Today is a beautiful day and it is set to be fine for the rest of the week which is at least some good news! Take this opportunity, before the weather inevitably turns, to work outside. Fresh air is key to a healthy mind and body and Year One love to work outside whenever we can. Here are some ideas for creative ways to enjoy your time outside but don't forget to keep to the government guidelines regarding distance. I would love to see photos of what you have got up to and enjoy!
Here are the booklets for this week and practical challenges. Please complete these together using items you have around the house. I would love to see photos of these! There is a lot here so don't worry if it does not get all done this week.

Welcome to week one home learning. Here are some activities and suggestions to complete this week.
www.twinkl.co.uk has a free subscription at the moment using the free access code: PARENTSTWINKLHELPS. Access the Phase 5 Tricky Word Pairs game for another way to practise reading tricky words.
Those children in Mrs Pratt's phonics group should access the Phase 3 versions of these games.
I hope that this is useful for your child and that they can continue to enjoy learning at home.
For each week there will be a specific phonics task, Maths activities as well as general challneges for reading and writing. I will keep updating things from my end to keep the children learning best we can!
Structure to your child's day will help things seem a bit more like school. This weekly timetable will help but remember to keep the weekend blank!
Keeping fit and active are vital now more than ever. Use your garden if you can as much as possible, Year One love to be outside. If that is not possible, Just Dance videos are great and I have also found a link to everyone's favourite Joe Wicks who will be starting 30 minute fun PE sessions at 9am Monday to Friday. Here it is : https://www.facebook.com/201801253227152/posts/3695351617205414?vh=e&d=n&sfns=mo. If you can't get your child outside, try to spend as much of the time inside as creatively as possible. The 100 Things to do Inside guide will give you lots of ideas I'm sure. I wonder who can do all 100 before we go back to school?
Congratulations to Aurelia, Oliver, Leia, Adam, Lily, Eliza, Laura, you have completed all eight challenges on our bingo board! We hope you enjoy your prizes. Lots of us have completed many of them and only have a few left to go. Who will be a bingo winner next?
When we started our learning journey all about dinosaurs, we made a list of questions that we wanted to find the answers to. One of the questions was: how big are dinosaurs? We set to work finding out the answer. We used long, longer, short, shorter, tall and taller to compare dinosaurs. Next we used cubes and even our feet to measure dinosaur footprints. But we found a problem as some of us got different answers so we decided to measure in centimetres using rulers. We found some really tall and long dinosaurs!
