Summer Term Week 5 –

Lesson 1 - Compare length and height

See sheet above. 

Extension Task:

Use a non-standard of unit such as a pencil and compare lengths of things around the house. Can you put a group of objects in order from the shortest to the longest?

 

 

 

 

Literacy/Geography:

This week we are thinking about the area of Kent, where we live. Year 1 are going to be looking at our more local surroundings.

Platt is near Sevenoaks within County of Kent.

  • Can you spot Sevenoaks on the map of Kent?
  • What else can you see? What is the area shaded in blue?

 

 

 

 

Fun Activity:

If you have access to a computer, you could try this with adult supervision:

Go into Google Earth: https://www.google.co.uk/intl/en_uk/earth/

Type in St Mary’s Platt in Sevenoaks, Kent, England and watch Google Earth find our school area!

If you drag the icon of the little person, (on the right) onto the map, you will see our local roads and buildings!

If you can’t access the internet, then see if you have a road map or atlas you could look at instead.

 

Today’s Task:

Can you research at least five facts about Kent?

You could write them in your textbook, or the attached sheet provided.

 

Here is a weblink, or perhaps you could talk to an adult in your family and jot down any facts they know about Kent? Think about geographical features.

Literacy/Geography:

You have two different tasks to choose from:

1.      Draw a map of your local area. Don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be completely accurate. Try to remember the main landmarks, such as schools, parks, shops and roads.

Label some parts of your map. Use your phonic sounds if you are unsure how to spell a word. You don’t have to label everything because tomorrow you are going to make a key for your map.

 

Here is an example:

 

 

OR: Choose one of the Images of Kent pictures attached.

 

Write some words surrounding the picture to describe it.

 

 Look at the geographical features. E.g. Hills, field, water and buildings too.

 

Use nouns, (naming words) and some adjectives, (to give description).

 

Extension task:

Put some of the words you have used around the picture into at least two sentences, to describe the setting.

 

 

 

 

Day 4 - Kent

On Friday or over the weekend you are going to complete a book review about your book or based on what you have read so far.

Task:

In preparation for Friday’s book review: Jot down the main events from the story you have read so far.

 

Warm up:

Play this Topmarks – Measuring in centimetres sheet:

 https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/measuring-in-cm

Task: Complete the  measuring activities sheet above. 

NB: You will need a ruler.

 

 

 

Literacy/Geography

Today you are going to make a key to go with your map.

On a map, not everything is always labelled in full. We use a key to refer to. Sometimes maps have basic pictures to represent something, such as the picnic benches below.

Here is an example:

 

 

 

 

Use the Key sheet above, to make your key.

Alternatively:

If you chose to complete the descriptive writing task yesterday. Complete the same task today but choosing an ‘Image from Kent’ with different geographical features.

 

 

 

Day 5 - Kent

NB: you can use picture if this helps.

Warm up:

Play this Topmarks – Measuring in centimetres sheet:

 https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/measuring-in-cm

Friday Challenges

Choose at least one:

1.      Can you find 5 objects, (e.g. toy cars) and order them according to size. You could write down the measurements in your book.

2.      Measure your height. Then, with someone’s help, measure the distance from your fingertip to fingertip when you stretch your arms wide. Compare the distances – do you notice anything? You could jot down your findings.

3.      How many things can you find in your house that measure 15cm?

4.      Measure the length of your foot, then measure the length between your elbow and your wrist. Next, compare the two lengths.

You may need some help with this!

 

 

 

Literacy/Geography:

Write a postcard as though you have just visited an area in Kent.

 

It could be from your local area, somewhere you’ve visited or researched earlier in the week.

You can use the template attached or make your own.

·         Remember to put the picture on the front. (You could draw the picture, print one or stick in a picture from a magazine).

·         Keep it short.

·         Write about what you have done or what you will be doing, (you can pretend).

E.g.

Dear Gran,

 

Today we arrived in Kent.

We visited a National Trust place called Chartwell.

It was the home of Winston Churchill!

It had a huge garden and a wooden swing and climbing frame in the woods.

 

It was great fun!

 

There are lots of gardens to visit here.
