week beginning 6.7.20

Suggested work for the week.

This week our focus is on poetry and rhyming stories.



Play the phonics games to practice your sounds and words.

Now complete the Phase 5 worksheets below. Match the words to the pictures. Can you write any more words to match the other pictures?


Read as often as you can throughout the week. Try reading some of your own favourites again. Remember you can read your books on Bug Club and also find books on Oxford Owl

Have you looked at the  Summer Reading Challenge 2020? The Reading Challenge normally takes place in the public libraries, but this year has been set up on line. It will celebrate funny books, happiness and laughter. If you take part in the challenge, you will join the silly squad, an adventurous team of animals who love to have a laugh and get stuck in to all kinds of funny books.

Ask your family to look at the link below for more information.

Kinetic Letters

We are now starting to revise capital letter formation. This week please use your Kinetic Letter Mat to practise

                                   the lines with curves group D, P, B, R, J, U. 


Practise one letter per day. You can practise the lower case equivalent alongside the capital letters.



This week we are going to learn a little more about poetry and rhyme and rhythm. Follow the BBC Bitesize link below to find out about how to write a poem.


The book we have chosen this week is a rhyming book called "Commotion in the Ocean" by Giles Andreae.

"There's a curious commotion

 At the bottom of the ocean

I think we ought to go and take a look."


Activity 1:

Listen to the story using the link below. 

Use the sheet below to match the rhyming words and phrases about the sea creatures from the book.

Activity 2:

Guess the sea creature.

Read the descriptions on the sheet below and see if you can guess which sea creature it is. How many did you get correct? The answers are at the bottom of the sheet so no peeping until you have written your answers!

Activity 3:

Write a description of a sea creature.

Draw a picture of another animal that lives in the sea and write a description in the style of Commotion in the Ocean. Can you make your description rhyme? You can use the paper below.

Activity 4:

Write a number poem.

Now you know a lot about sea creatures, we would like you to write your own sea creature poem.

One way of writing a poem is to write a number poem with lots of words in it. Here is an example below.


One floating jellyfish with long waving tendrils,

Two playful chattering dolphins diving and jumping,

Three dangerous sharks circling a shoal of fish,

Four colourful tropical fish hiding in the coral,

Five black and white penguins sliding into the sea.

                                                by Year 1 Teachers 


Now have a go at writing your own number poem. Have fun! Don't forget to say who it is by at the end. You could decorate your poem with the sea creatures you wrote about.

Listen to story

Below is a link to a delightful story all about sea creatures called "Billy's Bucket" by Kes Gray and Garry Parsons. We hope you enjoy it.

Make your own sea creature

Have a go at making your own sea creature. Use your imagination and creative ideas. It could be 2D or 3D. Below are some ideas that might give you inspiration. Have fun!


Make a fact file about your favourite sea creature.

Linked to our work about the sea, we would like you to choose your favourite sea creature and find out as much as you can about it. You could use the paper below to write your information and draw a picture.
