Good afternoon Year 1
How has your day been so far? Did you manage to write some reviews for the books you read? Please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can celebrate your effort.
I hope you had a superb time being a scientist. I did! I made my own superhero capes using kitchen foil, a bin bag and some light fabric. I made sure they were the same length and size and tested them by flying them in my room. I realised that the super light foil flew better than all the other capes, but didn't last. It got ripped! When I flew my bin bag super cape a few times, it got ripped too. So, all I'm left with is the fabric super cape. I think it's the best because it stayed the same and flew well. What did you find out? Some of your friends have shared pictures of their amazing investigations and capes with me. Please keep on sending them so we can celebrate your inventions.
I'm sure you remembered to form your ascenders, descenders, upper case letters and lower case letters correctly in your writing today. All your teachers are so proud of your learning, so keep it up
Remember to visit Bug Club to read a book of your choice with your family as part of your bedtime routine and have an early night so you're refreshed for tomorrow's challenges.
Stay safe and bye for now!
Good morning Year 1,
It's Mrs Coffie here
I hope you are all well and keeping safe. Have you been maintaining a good routine by going to bed early and waking up early? Do you know that maintaining a routine helps you to be healthy, calmer, think better and ready for any challenge? If you haven't, then you have to start.
This week I've been reading 'Malala Yousafzai's' biography and it's interesting to know how much effort she put in everything she did. Have you heard of this young girl? Maybe you can research and read her inspirational life events and even create a fact file or mind map about her.
Your teachers have set different challenges for you today and I'm sure you're ready to start your reading activity. How are you finding your reading activities? Remember, 'the more you read, the more things that you'll know, the more that you learn, the more places you'll go.' So, keep READING! Be a Reading CHAMPION!!
In order for a Reading superhero to fly, they need their reading powers and a good cape to help lift their body. Now, as Reading superheroes, you're going to be scientists today. Your Science challenge for today, is to test which material is best suited to make a superhero cape. This is a fun activity and I'll try testing different materials at home too. Maybe, we can all share photos of our experiments at the end of the day.
A Writing task has been set for you to write the introduction of your biography. I'll like encourage you to use your handwriting tool carefully so your readers can read your writing. Remember to form your ascenders-b, d, k,l, t, h,f, and descenders-f,g,j,p,q,y, correctly in your writing. Look at the example below to remind you.
I think it's time for you to start your learning, so off you go, and....oh remember to email us if you need help!
Have fun and I'll catch up with you in the afternoon.
