Good Morning Lovely Lions,

I hope you had a great first day back of learning together at home! We have another fun and exciting day of learning for you planned.

Have a lovely day,

Today’s Learning

Literacy Activities 

Focused  

Sound br 

You could watch this video to refresh yesterday’s learning: 

Worksheet or game 

Choose one of these activities 

Word search 

Normal  

Challenge 

Game: Smelly words

Handwriting

Letters p and d 

Look at the video below. You can use a white board or a paper. It is useful for the children to have lines, so they have a reference and they can do all the letters the same size. 

Look carefully.  

  • We always start where the dot is, we go from the low left corner of the square to the top right corner of the square. 
  • We use the lines on the paper to help us to follow.

We use this website in class to model the writing:

Reading 

Today try to read the reading book without support. Take your time, it doesn’t matter if there are words that you find tricky and adult will be able to support you. 

Retell the story to another person in your house or even to one of your toys! Retelling is a vital skill for young readers to work on to help them understand what they are reading.  

Numeracy

Start by warming up your counting in tens brain by watching this video 

Did you notice that Jack didn’t always start at 10? One time he started at 5 and counted in tens. This is called counting in tens ‘off decade’. 

Watch this video and see how we can use a number square to help us make the pattern of counting in tens off the decade. 

You may wish to print this bottom to top hundred square. 

t-n-399-hundred-square-bottom-to-topDownload 

You could colour the tens pattern columns each in a different colour,  or make the patterns by putting beads or buttons on a column as you count, then taking them off and starting again on a different number. 

Knowing how to count in tens off the decade means we can quickly and easily add 10 any number without having to  ‘count on ten’ 

RME

Today we are going to be learning about a new religion: Buddhism.  

Learning Intention: 

I know what a belief and a religion are.  

To understand some aspects of the Buddhism Religion and to discuss what they believe with an adult. 

Success Criteria: 

  • I can listen to an Buddhism story and discuss what Buddhists believe. 
  • I can share my thoughts about aspects within the story.  
  • I can be creative and use my imagination to bring the story I have heard to life. 

Activities:  

  1. Watch this video which highlights aspects of what Buddhist religion and what they believe.  

“The Buddhist Story of Siddhartha and the Swan and The Monkey King.” 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/religious-studies-ks1-the-buddhist-story-of-siddhartha-and-the-swan-and-the-monkey-king/zfkcwty

  1. Discuss times when you have shown kindness to other living things and create a collage of pictures of living things cut from magazines with the title “be kind to living things”. 

Hope you have a lovely day!

Good Morning Lovely Lions,

I hope you had a restful and lovely holiday! I am looking forward to hearing all the fun things you have been up to.

This week we are going to have a whole class session on Teams on Friday at 11:00am.

I am looking forward to hopefully seeing you back in school next week.

Here is the weekly plan:

Reading books have been shared on the Learning Journals. Please continue to share your child’s learning on the journals – it is so lovely to see!

Have a lovely day,

Miss McGillivray x

Today’s Learning

Literacy 

This week we are going to introduce the pr initial consonant blend. 

Today’s Focus

Learning Intention (What we are learning today): 

  • I am learning that two letters together make one sound. 
  • I am learning to recognise vowel and consonant diagraphs. 
  • I am learning to segment, word -build and blend. 

Success Criteria (How can I show that I have learned and understood) 

  • I can identify that two sounds together make one sound 
  • I can read words that have the worked sounds  
  • I can write words that have the worked sounds  
  • I can identify words that contain the worked sounds  

Sound br 

Please watch the attached video

You can also watch this James Hartmann video 

Be Geraldine 

Find as many objects as you can in your house with today’s sound. 

Challenge: Could you write them without help? 

Spider splat game 

See PDF 

Reading books 

You will find your book for today on your child’s e -learning journal. 

Introduce the story and invite your child to relate to her/his own experience, tell/read the story and talk about it, encourage your child to re-tell you the story and talk carefully about the pictures. 

Look for any new words that are new for your child, discuss the meaning and think together about words that have the same meaning (synonym). 

Numeracy

Number Cups

Write the digits 0-9 around the rim of two plastic or paper cups (yoghurt pots would also work) You can make any number from 00-99 by turning the cups. numbers and counting

You can play several different “games” with the number cups.

1. Make a number and read it.

2. Adult says a number and child makes it.

3. Do a random spin of the cups and then read the numbers all the way around the rim before turning the cups again.

4. Adult makes a number and asks make a number and then I’ll ask what number comes before or after it.

5. Ask the child to make (e.g.) The number after…..

6. Use the cups to answer some simple addition or subtraction calculations

If you don’t have cups you can make a similar number generator with two carboard tubes (cut and tape one slightly smaller than the other to fit inside), or two circles of card, a smaller one on top of the larger one.

As an extension task, you might like to visit this paint the squares website where you can explore numbers to 100 in different ways. On this video you can see one example of how to use the game

Music   

Today is Shrove Tuesday. 

On Shrove Tuesday we traditionally make and eat pancakes. There are different types of pancakes – big thin ones, small thick ones –  and there are lots of tasty ways to eat pancakes. 

Perhaps you are making pancakes in your house today. If you do, it would be lovely to see some photos of you enjoying them, and maybe you could also tell us what you like to put on your pancake. 

If you would like to find out more about why we celebrate Shrove Tuesday then you can watch this video 

Challenge: 

You could watch this video of how to make pancakes, then perhaps an adult could help you make some for your family. 

I would like to teach you a song about pancakes – you can watch my video here 

Have a lovely day!

Good Morning Lovely Lions,

It is almost the holidays – are you excited?

I hope you have been having a lovely week so far!

Here is today’s learning.

I hope you have a lovely day!

Miss McGillivray

Today’s Learning

Morning Routine

Wake up, shake up

Start your day like we always do in school! Here is the challenge – get someone in your family to do it with you! Say hello in French to someone like we do during the register!

Morning Workout!

It is important for us to make sure we exercise when we are not leaving the house as often! Have fun! Look for a cosmic yoga of your choosing on youtube!

Literacy  

Tricky words game 

Can you sort our tricky words by number of letters on them? Make columns: 2 letters, 3 letters, 4 letters, etc. Could be on a white board, on the floor, etc. Ask your child to sort the tricky words. 

Challenge: Time and ask them to say them as they sort them out.  

Writing 

Learning Intention (What we are learning today):  

  •  We are learning to write in sentences. 

Success Criteria (How can I show that I have learned and understood):  

  • I can put capital letters in the right place.  
  • I can use finger spaces.  
  • I can use full stops.  
  • I can sound out the words to try to write them.  
  • I can write a sentence that makes sense. 

Today you are going to write about your home. 

First talk to an adult about your home: Think about what you would like us to know about your home (we will be your audience). Think about the things that make your home special for you. 

Draw a detailed picture (you don’t have to colour it in, black pen drawing if you have one), think about the shapes of the doors, windows and items in it, you can choose one room to draw too.  We would love to see a picture of your home (you could take a photo of your work and upload it on the e-learning journal once you have finished). 

Now you can try to write a few sentences:  

  • The adult who is helping you can write the sentences starters (written below in cursive) so you can copy them. However, if you want a bit of a challenge try to sound out the words and write them without help (Adult, please don’t focus on correcting the spelling to start with if it is phonetically correct).  
  • Sentence starters: Then start by:  I live in …  Tell me everything you can about it: My home is… Then tell me what you like about it: I like because….  
  • Your child should be able to write independently the worked tricky words (such as I, she, he, etc) 
  • You could give your child a bank of words to use (please try not to add CVC words or our tricky words) 

Non-negotiables (adult you could write a simple sentence and model it for your child):  

  • Capital letter at the beginning of a sentence. 
  • Full stop at the end of a sentence. 
  • Finger spaces between words. 

We would love to see your amazing writing. 

Please write the title and date for your child and then chose from one of the following: 

  • Easiest: Adult to scribe for you and you copy the sentence underneath. 
  • Medium: Attempt to write independently with adult supporting with trickier words.  
  • Trickiest: Write independently. Try to write at least 4 sentences.  

Reading 

Read your reading book to an adult independently. 

Book Review:  

Tell an adult: What did you like about this week’s reading book? What didn’t you like about your book and why? What did you learn? 

Maths: Money

Today we are going to revise our Money topic so far. Below are some videos you can watch to help revise the topic. Some of these are from the money Museum on the Mound and BBC Teach. After watching the videos, you can choose to complete a worksheet, play games, create your own shop or explore money through play in whatever way you like.

The areas we have covered which we would like you to secure your knowledge on are:

  • Recognising coins to £2.
  • Making values to 10p (20p for an extra challenge) using different coins.
  • Paying the exact value for something up to 10p. (20p for an extra challenge)
  • Using your addition skills to help you pay for something.

We will move onto using subtraction and giving change after the February break.

Resources:

Pick and choose which resources you would like to use. Please do not do everything! Allow time for your child to explore money through play. The ‘What is Money?’ videos I recommend watching as it gives a wider context to how we use money in Scotland and where it is made etc.

Videos:

The Money Song

What is Money? Part 1

What is Money? Part 2

Counting Money – Making 10p

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9nyr82

Worksheets:

Coin Recognition Labelling Worksheet

How Much Money is in my Piggy Bank Worksheet

STEM:

Design and Build a Marble Maze

First, watch this video for some ideas 

  • Have a think about how you could build a marble maze using resources you already have at home. 

You could use straws, paper, boxes from the recycling, lego, sticks from the garden…. anything you want. If you don’t have any marbles, you could hunt for a small round pebble, or scrunch up a small piece of paper. 

Once your marble run is complete, you could challenge people in your family to see who can complete it in the shortest time. You could use a timer on a phone or  a stopwatch. 

If you would like to, you could take a short video of your marble run in action and share it on the learning journal 

Have a lovely day!

Look at the video below. You can use a white board or a paper. It is useful for the children to have lines, so they have a reference and they can do all the letters the same size. 

As a warm up you could put flour or salt on a table/tray and practice the letter formation with your finger. 

Look carefully.  

  • We always start where the dot is, we go from the low left corner of the square to the top right corner of the square. 
  • We use the lines on the paper to help us to follow.

Reading 

Today try to read the reading book without support. Take your time, it doesn’t matter if there are words that you find tricky and adult will be able to support you. 

Now try to read your book backwards. From the end to the beginning.  

Remember reading every night with your child it is a fantastic way to encourage reading for pleasure, increasing your child’s vocabulary and most importantly …having a wonderful time with your child! 

Maths/Numeracy 

https://buckstoneprimary.files.wordpress.com/2021/01/download-9.jpg?w=286

Today you could choose to revisit any of the previous numeracy activities which you have found a bit tricky so far.

Or you could play this helicopter rescue game to help consolidate your knowledge of number to 100 ( choose your own level of challenge) 

French

Bonjour! 

Today we are going to think about how to say the colours of the rainbow in French. 

There are two videos for you to watch today. 

This first one teaches you the names of the colours, and asks you to say the words out loud. Don’t worry if it is tricky for you, just have a go. 

In the second video, A lady called Alexa sings the rainbow song in French. 

https://buckstoneprimary.files.wordpress.com/2021/01/download-2.jpg?w=225

If you have a tablet, you might want to download the free app called Fun French, which has some great games to help you learn colours 

You may also want to print this French rainbow colouring sheet, or you could draw your own rainbow and try to say the names of the colours in French 

Have a lovely day!

You could use magnetic letters, letters from our home learning sheet, muffin cases (as photo below). Say a word and your child has to make the word using the items above.

Worksheet 

sh and ch 

Reading books 

You will find your book for today on your child’s e -learning journal. Please note that this week we will be reading fact books. These books might look easier than the previous ones but the purpose of using fact books this week is: 

  • To find information in a text to learn new things  
  • To show an awareness of a few features of fiction and non-fiction texts when using/choosing texts for particular purposes. 

Introduce the story and invite your child to relate to her/his own experience, tell/read the book and talk about it, encourage your child to re-tell you the book and talk carefully about the pictures. Please discuss with your child the difference between a fiction and a fact book. 

Look for any new words that are new for your child, discuss the meaning and think together about words that have the same meaning (synonym). 

Maths/Numeracy 

Introduction 

Warm up your number brain by counting some short number sequences forwards and backwards within 100. 

We’ve done this before, but it is something we should practise regularly. 

Here are a few examples to get you started, but you can decide your own start and stop numbers. Today I’d like to to focus on ‘bridging the tens’ so crossing through 20/30/40  in each example. Counting backwards through a 10 can be challenging for some. 

  • start at 18 and stop at 23, then do the same backwards 
  • start at 47 and stop at 52 
  • start at 25 and stop at 32 
  • start at 67 and stop at 73 

Learning intention 

To develop knowledge of numbers and number sequences 1- 100 

Success criteria 

I can recognise decade numbers 

I can order decade numbers 

I can say the number before and after each decade number. 

First, watch and join in with this video 

And now, watch this video… 

…and then try some of the activities from the video with an adult 

On small squares of paper, write all the decade number from 10 – 100 

Muddle them up, then ask your child to place them in the right order. 

You could time this, then challenge them to do it again and beat their own time, or, as in my video ‘steal’ a number and ask them to identify which number is missing. 

Now choose one decade card, remove it from the row, and ask 

“Which number is this?” ( e.g. 50) 

Then 

“If I was counting in ones, which number would come after 50 ( 51), and which number would come before 50 ( 49) 

Repeat with one or two other cards. 

n.b. If your child finds this tricky, start with decades to 30 only, then increase the level of challenge when they are ready for it, 

Out and about – how many decade numbers can you spot ( door numbers, buses, car number plates etc)

Outdoor Learning: Today’s Key Task

Nature Scavenger Hunt Bingo 

Your task is to go on a walk around in your local environment and see how many of the boxes you can tick off. See document below. See if you can get a full row or if you can tick off everything!  

Take a photo of each thing you find and, if you would like to, share them with us on the Learning Journals!  

Have fun!

Good Morning P1L,

I hope you are having a lovely week so far!

Here is today’s learning:

Morning Routine:

Wake up, shake up

Start your day like we always do in school! Here is the challenge – get someone in your family to do it with you! Say hello in French to someone like we do during the register!

Literacy  

Scottish week 

Would you like to try to learn a Scottish Poem? 

This poem was written by JK Annand 

TWA-LEGGIT MICE 

by JK Annand 

Ma mither says that we hae mice 
That open air-ticht tins 
And eat her chocolate biscuits 
And cakes and sic like things. 

Nae doot it is an awfy shame 
That mice should get the blame. 
It’s really me that ripes the tins 
When left alane at hame. 

But jings I get fair hungert 
And biscuits taste sae nice 
But dinnae tell ma mither 
For she thinks it’s the mice! 

Sounds 

Please revise this week’s sounds: ee and oo 

Activity 

Can you write five words with the sound ee and five with the sound oo? 

Challenge: 

Write a sentence using one of those words. 

Focused  

Writing 

Learning Intention (What we are learning today):  

  •  We are learning to write in sentences. 

Success Criteria (How can I show that I have learned and understood):  

  • I can put capital letters in the right place.  
  • I can use finger spaces.  
  • I can use full stops.  
  • I can sound out the words to try to write them.  
  • I can write a sentence that makes sense. 

Today you are going to write about your someone else in your family. (Not Mummy – unless you didn’t do last week’s writing task) 

First talk to an adult about the person: Think about what you would like us to know about them (we will be your audience). Think about what they look like, what do they like doing, what do you like about them (we are sure there are lots of things that you like about this person!) 

Draw a detailed picture (you don’t have to colour it in, black pen drawing if you have one), think about their hair, their eyes, their hands, their clothes, etc. We would love to see a picture of them (you could take a photo of your work and upload it on the e-learning journal once you have finished). 

Now you can try to write a few sentences:  

  • The adult who is helping you can write the sentences starters (written below in cursive) so you can copy them. However, if you want a bit of a challenge try to sound out the words and write them without help (Adult, please don’t focus on correcting the spelling to start with if it is phonetically correct).  
  • Sentence starters: Then start by:  My brother/sister/dad is …  Tell me everything you can about it: He/she is… Then tell me what you like about them: I like …because…. Can you write their name? 
  • Your child should be able to write independently the worked tricky words (such as I, she, he, etc) 

Non-negotiables (adult you could write a simple sentence and model it for your child):  

  • Capital letter at the beginning of a sentence. 
  • Full stop at the end of a sentence. 
  • Finger spaces between words. 

We would love to see your amazing writing. 

Please write the title and date for your child and then chose from one of the following: 

  • Easiest: Adult to scribe for you and you copy the sentence underneath. 
  • Medium: Attempt to write independently with adult supporting with trickier words.  
  • Trickiest: Write independently. Try to write at least 4 sentences.  

Reading 

Read your reading book to an adult independently. 

Book Review:  

Tell an adult: What did you like about this week’s reading book? What didn’t you like about your book and why?

Money: Adding Coins  

Learning Intention: (What are we learning today) 

I am continuing to learn about money and the coins we use in Scotland. 

I am learning how to add coins together to find the price of something. 

Success Criteria: (How can I show that I have learned and understood) 

  • I can recognise coins to £2.  
  • I can add two or more coins together to find the value of something. 
  • I can use visual tools to help me when adding coins together. 

Teaching Input: 

Today we are going to be learning how to add coins together. This can help us find out how much money you might have in total. You might want to find out how much money you have in a piggy bank or if you were shopping; if you have enough money to buy the toy you like? Learning to count our coins is a very important life long skill!  

Can you think of any other times you would maybe need to know how to count money? 

When we add coins it is very similar to when we add numbers together. For example, 2 + 1 is the same as adding 2p and 1p. However, it is important to know whether you are adding pounds or if you are adding pence. Today, we are only going to be adding up to 20p, so we are only working in pence.  

Use coins or paper replicas to help you. 

Start by adding a 2p and 1p together. Put two in your head and add one more on using your fingers, the coins or a number line to help you. 

Do as many of these further examples as you like: 

Now add 5p and 1p.  

Now add 10p and 1p. 

Now add 20p and 1p.  

Now add 5p and 2p.  

Now add 10p and 2p.  

Now add 20p and 2p. 

Now add 10p and 5p. 

Now add 20p and 5p. 

Challenge – If you would like a harder challenge try adding 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p onto 20p or 50p.  

Activities:  

  1. Go on Sumdog and complete today’s challenge. 
  1. Worksheet: How much do the ice-creams cost? Choose the level which you would like to complete! If you don’t have a printer – you could use coins to count the totals.  
  1. Play this money bingo game with your family! Have fun!  
  1. Play this game on topmarks: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/money/toy-shop-money 

STEM Activity  – Today’s Key Task

Today we would like you to think about the word multi-tasking. Do you know what that means? 

It means doing two things at the same time. 

Do you think that is hard or easy? 

With an adult, watch this short video about multi tasking and the different ways our brain helps us to do task. In the film, the girl and her dad try some different combinations of tasks to see if their brain can cope.  

Perhaps you could conduct your own try some of the multitasking activities they show to see how easy, or hard, you find them. 

General Ideas 

Literacy:

  • To help you with handwriting and review letter formation that we have already done you could use this: 

https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/writingRepeater/index.html

  • This game is good for tricky words: 

https://www.ictgames.com/littleBirdSpelling/

  • You could use this game to make and read sentences: 

https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/sentenceSub/index.html

You don’t need a computer to do this game: write words that we have worked on and tricky words (some with capital at the beginning) and full stops. Ask your child to make sentences with them. 

Maths:

Here are some further ideas of things you could do to continue the learning, if you would like to.  

  • Create a shop and be the shop keeper. Ask someone in your family to be the customer.  
  • Coin hunt – you could set up a treasure hunt around your house/garden looking for coins. When you find one, can you recognise the value? 
  • Continue to look for things the same size as your coin.  
  • Lower or Higher – show a random coin, can you name the coin next higher in value or next lower in value?

Today we are going to do literacy together! I hope you have a lovely day!

Here is today’s learning:

Miss McGillivray

Morning Routine:

Wake up, shake up

Start your day like we always do in school! Here is the challenge – get someone in your family to do it with you! Say hello in French to someone like we do during the register!

Morning Workout:

This morning I am sharing with you one of our favourite things to do as a class. Brain Breaks! We use videos on YouTube from Go Noodle. Here is one of our favourites! If you want a fuller exercise video, you could do some Cosmic Yoga or Joe Wicks.

Literacy 

Today’s Focus  

Learning Intention (What we are learning today): 

  • I am learning that two letters together make one sound. 
  • I am learning to recognise the vowel diagraph oo 
  • I am learning to segment, word -build and blend using oo 

Success Criteria (How can I show that I have learned and understood) 

  • I can identify that o and o together make the sound oo (2 letters make one sound) 
  • I can read words that have the sound oo 
  • I can write words that have the sound oo 
  • I can identify words that contain the sound oo 

Introduce the sound oo. We have attached a PowerPoint with the same format that the one we use in the class. 

oo sound ideas 

Words: food, hoof, tool, wool, look, good, wood, shook, mood, moon, tooth. 

Tricky words: are/they 

Challenge: Could you read these sentences? 

Be Geraldine! Look for things in the house that have the sound oo and take a photo and post it on your learning journal. 

Challenge: Could you sound them out and write them without help? 

Activities 

Choose one of the activities below 

Worksheets 

Easiest 

Medium 

Trickiest 

White board 

Write the oo sound on a white board and a line before and after the oo sound. Look for objects around your house or draw them, write the word. You could take a photo of your work. Look below 

Reading books 

Read the book on your own. 

Make sentences using the words from your book. First make the sentences (ask an adult to write the sentences for you, you can chop into words) from your book then use those words to make new sentences. 

Maths: Today’s Key Task

Money: Making Amounts to 10p with different coins. 

Learning Intention: (What are we learning today) 

I am continuing to learn about money and the coins we use in Scotland. 

I am learning different ways to make amounts to 10p. 

Success Criteria: (How can I show that I have learned and understood) 

  • I can recognise coins to £2.  
  • I can use different coins to make the same amount. 
  • I can use visual tools to help me work with money. 

Starter/Revision:  

Revise last week’s learning by sorting coins from the smallest to biggest value as quickly as you can.  

Can you think of one way to make 5p and 10p? (Using more than one coin) 

Teaching Input: 

Today we are going to think about different ways we can make amounts to 10p. Last week we thought about making 5p and 10p. Using that knowledge, we are going to think of ways we can make other totals up to 10p. For example, 9p. 

How many ways can you think of to make 9p. – What coins can you use? Repeat with other values such as, 3p, 6p, 7p and 8p. For an extra challenge you could work towards values up to 20p.  

Activities:  

  1. Worksheet: How Much Money is in the Jar? – We are not asking you to do all 6 pages, we could not split the file into individual sheets. Please use either page 5/6 and write in values between 1p-10p. 1p-20p for an extra challenge.  
  1. Game: Making Amounts  

Music

Learning intentions 

I enjoy singing and playing along to music of different styles and cultures.  

I have the freedom to use my voice, discover pitch and rhythm.  

I hope you enjoyed singing Sailor Sailor on the sea last time. Today I have a new song for you. It is called ‘Old Brass Wagon’. It has actions to do along with the words. Once you know the song well, perhaps you could invent some new action verses of your own. 

Old Brass Wagon 

On this next link you will find two scots songs, not by Robert Burns though, as he didn’t really write songs for children. I hope you’ll have fun with these songs.
