Week beginning 1st March

Friday 5th March 2021

Hey year 1, It's Friday!!! I hope you all have had a lovely week, I have been seeing some fantastic learning being sent in, you all deserve to have a good rest this weekend, and prepare for an exciting day back on Monday! Here is the learning for today :)



Today, we are going to work on finding stronger adjectives to describe different feelings.

What is your understanding of the Coronavirus? Why have you had to stay at home?

These are 4 different ways you might have felt during the 'lock-down'-

Your task for today is to think of or find other words for each feeling, e.g. Excited, Ecstatic, Giddy. Are there any colours you think of for each feeling?

Write a list for each feeling, then see if you can put some of these words into a sentence.


Extra, extra!- In our newsletters, there is always information on how to stay safe while the Coronavirus is still active. Can you make a poster containing some of this information?





Main learning

Today, we are going to be using your knowledge of addition to find the missing number!

Have a look at the example below.

First, I found and circled the first number known number fact, on a number line. In the example above, the number 4.

Next, I found and circled the second known number fact, the number 10.

After that, I carefully counted the jumps from 4 to 10. The answer is 6. So, 4 + 6 = 10 (Why not check the answer with your fingers?)

Have a go at these examples:
