Panda Class Home Learning Tuesday 12th January

Welcome to Tuesday 12th January.

A big thank you for all of the messages and super work that you have sent me via Dojo.  The key thing is not to worry if it’s not done all in one day but ‘chunked’ when you have opportunity.


Maths – Using positional language

Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers

Start the session by playing a game of ‘Simon Says’. Ask your child to put their hands ‘on top’ of their head, ‘under’ their feet, ‘behind them’, ‘in front of them’, ‘above’ their head.

Draw and cut out a penguin, like the one in the story.  Use this to take turns placing it in locations around the room. Chat to your child about where it is. Use the positional language to describe where it is.  Ask your child to talk about its position and use the positional language in this context. ‘The penguin is under the cushion.’

You could hide the penguin and ask your child to guess where it could be, ask them to put their guess in to a sentence, ‘Is the penguin behind the book?’

Phonics – following the live schedule.  If you are not sure, please let me know.

Pencil control work- You could draw patterns or letters, faintly, for your child to trace over, using increasing control to stay on your lines. Or, use the work sheets link for Lost & Found pencil control sheets.


Investigation – Understanding the World

Use the investigation sheet to experiment making a boat for the penguin to travel in, using recyclable materials. Try and make boats from a variety of materials and investigate to see which ones float and which ones sink.

Boat Size and Strength Testing UtW STEM Activity

Enjoy this story to finish.  Who Sank the Boat?

Year 1

English – Lost and Found

After watching/reading the story of Lost & Found can you create a missing poster for a missing pet? Hopefully, you have never lost a pet so you will have to imagine that you have and create a missing poster with some important writing on it to describe, in detail, what type of pet people are looking for. You will need to use:

  • Adjectives to describe what your pet looks like. For example, ‘Flopsy, my rabbit has long, warm ears.
  • Conjunctions to join your ideas within your sentence, for example, ‘Winston has ginger fur but he has a large patch of white fur on is long tail. Use: and, but, so.
  • Neat letters, capitals and full stops.

Phonics – follow the live lesson schedule.  Please ask if you’re not sure.

Maths –   Subtraction – Crossing 10.

Spr1.3.5-Subtraction-counting-back-crossing-10  This is a Power Point for guidance.

Y1-Spring-Block-1-WO-Subtraction-crossing-10-counting-back-2020  This is the work sheet link.

Any other subtraction activities to supplement it will be good too.  Talk about people getting on and off a bus to create subtraction number sentences. For example, ‘there are 16 people on the bus and at the next stop 6 people get off.  How many people are left on the bus?‘ Use a ruler (because it has numbers on it) or a number track, to count back from the given number.

Geography – The 7 Continents

We are looking for, locating and naming the 7 Continents. Enjoy your journey around the World!  If you click on the small green dots at the bottom of the geography screen there is a quiz at the end of the session for you to have a look at.

Have a lovely day, don’t forget to be kind to yourselves.

Best wishes

Mandy Turner
