Week 6

Hi there year one,


I hope you are all feeling good and ready for a new week! Below I have added some Maths games, Science activities, Art/DT and and the beginning of our new English focus 'Sidney Spider'. 


I think you will enjoy these activities and dont worry if you don't get through them all this week. You can always roll actiivities over to next week. 


Make sure you enjoy lots of the sunshine over the next few days and are always listening to your grown ups. Missing all your smiley faces today!


See you soon,

Miss Ingham :)


This week's activities are all about the story of 'Sidney Spider'. He has lots of short activities for you to enjoy with him.



Here are some activities to do alongside your ‘week 4’ maths booklet in your folder:


Number bonds to 10 and 20  

This is a great online resource to help with finding number bonds. Play around with the numicon shapes and find different number bonds before playing the games below. 


This is an online game for quick recall of number bonds to 10 (e.g. 7+3 / 6+4 ).


This is an online game for quick recall of number bonds to 20 (e.g. 17+3 / 16+4 ).


When looking at number bonds to 20 we can use our knowledge of number bonds to 10 because it is just 10 more:


2 + 8 = 10     12 + 8 = 20


Watch this BBC video ‘Parts of a plant | Primary Biology – Plants’ to learn about the parts of a plant.


This is a PowerPoint about the parts of a plant too. 


If you can, go outside and find a flowering plant with an adult. If you can’t go outside see if you can find an image online or in a book of one. Look and observe the plant closely and sketch a bigger version on some A4 paper. Then add the following labels to your diagram:


  • Flower
  • Stem
  • Leaves
  • Roots (TIP: you might have to draw this part in because we usually cannot see this part of a plant)


For an extra challenge write down a sentence to describe why each part is important. 


Look around your house or in your recycling bin to find some junk modelling materials such:


  • Empty toilet rolls
  • Cupcake cakes
  • Cardboard
  • Bottle tops
  • Tissue paper
  • Wool/ string
  • Paper 
  • Egg boxes
  • Straws
  • Paper cups
  • Lolly sticks


Can you create a junk model flower plant? Don’t forget all of the important parts! If you can, take a photograph of your creation and stick it in your work book.
