Year 1 

This week in our English tasks we will continue to look at instructions.

 

Challenge 1

Last week when you had a look at instructions, you identified the imperative (bossy) verbs. The imperative verbs tell you what to do. Instructions also have time openers. Time openers are usually at the beginning of the sentence or the instruction and tell you when to do something.

Look at the instructions about how to make a globe. You will need two colours. In one colour, highlight all the time openers. In another, highlight all the imperative (boss) verbs.

 

Challenge 2

Now you have had a practised identifying and using time openers. Have a go at writing a set of instructions about ‘how to make a jam sandwich’. Remember your time openers and the imperative (bossy) verbs that you used last week. You might find the sheet below helpful. 

Maybe you could make a jam sandwich to check your instructions are correct when you have finished!

 

Challenge 3

Have a look at the instructions you wrote last week for ‘how to grow a plant’. Can you add time openers to your instructions? The more information you have, the easier your instructions will be for someone else to follow. You can use the word bank on yesterdays sheet to help you.

COME AND SEE

During this part of the year, our Bishop, Bishop Patrick, asks us to be a missionary disciple. St Paul is a really good example of a missionary disciple. He travelled around spreading messages about God, His Good News and also wrote letters to people. He wrote a letter to the people of Rome telling them that the Holy Spirit was with them and could help them. Here is what he said:

 

“The Spirit helps us when we find things difficult, sometimes it is not easy to pray but the Holy Spirit will be in your heart and God sees into our hearts and the Holy Spirit will speak for us.  We know that all things work out for good for those who love God.”

Based on Romans 8: 22-28

 

A couple of weeks ago in your home learning, you wrote an asking prayer to the Holy Spirit. We can also ask the Holy Spirit to help us spread the Good News by filling us with joy, love and peace. How could you show joy, love and peace to those around you? Describe your ideas. You can display your ideas however you like, or you might like to complete the table below.

 

The Holy Spirit fills us with…

I can show this to others by…

Joy

 

 

 

Love

 

 

 

Peace

 

 

 

 

PE

Have a go at some of these fun activities on the change4life website to keep you active this week!

DT

Fruit is a tasty snack that can keep us healthy. One of the things you can make with fruit is a yummy fruit salad. To help you achieve this have a go at the follow activities. The booklet attached below will help you.

  • Spend some time researching different fruits; think about their appearance on the outside as well as the inside.
  • Think about which fruits you like and which fruits you don’t like.
  • With a grow up, practise the different skills needed to make a fruit salad: washing, peeling, slicing and juicing. Evaluate which skills were the easiest and which skills were the hardest.
  • Using what you have found out about the fruits you like and the skills you will need. Design and label your fruit salad. Make sure you create a list of the equipment and fruit you will need.
  • Have fun using your design to create your fruit salad!
  • Finally, evaluate your fruit salad. Think about what you did and didn’t like and what you might do differently if you made your fruit salad again.

We can’t wait to see your fruit salads on Dojo!

ENGLISH TASKS:

WEEK 1:

Challenge 1

Get creative! Can you create your own alien character? What adjectives could you use to describe it’s appearance? Label your alien. We'd love to see what you create!

 

Challenge 2

Using all of the information that you created yesterday about your alien, write a character description to tell us a little more about it. Remember to describe it’s appearance, it’s personality and what it likes to do.

 

Challenge 3

Using the alien you have created, write an acrostic poem. Remember the first letter in each line spells out a word. The word you spell could be the word ‘alien’ or it could be the name that you have given your own alien character. Here is an example of what your acrostic poem could look like.

Week 2:

 

Your tasks this week also link to Come and See. Use the bible given to you as part of the Year of the Word to help you with your tasks this week. You might find the login details for Discovery Espresso (sent via Dojo) useful this week; this will help you watch ‘The Easter Story’ video.

 

Challenge 1

Read the story of Palm Sunday (Matthew 21:1-9) or watch the video embedded below. Illustrate or create a story board showing the story of Palm Sunday and Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem. Think carefully about the words and actions used by people in the story.

Make sure you include a detailed character description including what he looks like, his personality and the things he does. Use the video you have watched and the information you have read to help you.

Week 5:

This weeks home learning in English is based around instructions. Instructions are useful because they tell us how to do something. Without them, things like playing board games, baking and building could be quite tricky!

 

Challenge 1:

Have a go at following a set of instructions and share with us on Dojo what you have achieved. It could be instructions to make a cake or build a lego model. You could also use the link before to follow instructions to make a pirate hat!

Challenge 2:

This challenge has 2 parts. First of all, these instructions to make a paper plane are in the wrong order! Can you put them in the right order?

After you have put the instructions in order, can you highlight all the imperative verbs? Remember, imperative verbs can also be called bossy verbs, they tell you what to do e.g. put, bake, open.

 

Challenge 3:

Watch the video below all about plants and what they need to grow. Have a go at writing your own set of instructions on how to grow a flower. Your instructions could be how to grow a plant from a seed or a bulb. Use the video to help you. If you have any seeds or bulbs at home, you could even follow your instructions to check they are correct!
