Hello Year 1,
Well, only 2 weeks until the summer holidays – the weather looks like its getting better, so let’s all keep our fingers crossed! We are continuing our learning about Australia but also comparing it to where we live in the United Kingdom. If you would like a paper copy of home learning, you can collect a pack from school each Monday morning.
This is our book for the week! The Rainbow Fish! Click the link below and have a listen and watch the story….
Now have a go at these lessons….
Monday – Rainbow fish is unique because of his shiny, colourful scales. He likes his scales because they make him feel special. Have a think about what makes you unique and special, and then make an ‘all about me’ page.
Tuesday – At the start of the story, the rainbow fish wasn’t very kind to others. The sea creatures taught him how to be a good friend. Can you write a step by step guide to being a good friend?
Wednesday – Being kind to others is one of the things that makes you a good friend. Can you think of a time one of your friends has been really kind to you? Can you write down your memory of that time?
Thursday – There are lots of ways you can be kind to others. Can you write down some acts of kindness (for example helping make your lunch, holding a door open for someone or sharing one of your toys). Can you write some acts of kindness on individual pieces of paper and put them in a jar. You could pick one each day and try to complete it.
Friday – Can you write a book review for the story of the Rainbow Fish? What did you like about the story? Did you have a favourite part?
BE CREATIVE….CAN YOU MAKE YOUR OWN RAINBOW FISH OUT OF AN OLD CD?
Can you use your phonic knowledge to spell eu and ey words…

This week we are looking at comparing the United Kingdom with Australia. One difference is the UK is in the Northern Hemisphere and Australia is in the Southern Hemisphere. Can you find any similarities and differences….
30 Days Wild Challenge
Did you complete last weeks? Remember we are starting on Day 29 this week… How quickly have 30 days gone?!
This term we are learning all about position and direction. The best way to start is by learning this dance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkzR1GSLcHM
I would love to see you attempt this dance!
If you were in school this week we would have been doing yoga every morning. Have a go at home. These are all linked to our topic.
