Home learning for Year 1 - Sparrows

Week Beginning 8th June

Dear Sparrows Parents and Children,

As before, please complete a lesson of Maths and English each day and do the ‘frequently’ section a few times a week. Then you can do the Learning Journey and Science lesson when the mood is right across the week. I have also included an 'Other Learning' section, in case you wanted anything extra!

I hope you are all well, if you need to contact me for help/ a chat/ any form of support please feel free to do so via email- cp@harlandsprimary.org

Stay safe,

Miss Pooley.

This week in Science we will be looking at common flowers.

1. Watch the video on plants you can find outside https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpxnyrd/articles/zw2y34j

2. Go through the flower images and sort into piles of ones you know and ones you don't know (these may need rearrange before printing as they keep shuffling themselves around)

3. Research and find out the names of the flowers you are not sure of

4. Complete the 'WALT name common flowers' worksheet by matching the flower and the name

5. With your family, play flower bingo (4 bingo sheets available below). Get one person to call out flowers and the others to mark off when they have one on their sheet. The winner if the first to get all the flowers crossed off their board!
