Home Learning in Meerkats – Summer 2
  • Post category:Year 1

As we approach the Summer holidays, we both want to say WELL DONE to all the Meerkats and their families for how well you have coped with the changes that have been thrown at you over the last few months. We have loved seeing examples of your home learning and have really enjoyed welcoming some of you back into school this half term. Below are a few activities to have a go at over the next couple of days and over the Summer, if you wish.

Have a wonderful Summer!

Mrs Dixon and Mrs Radford 🙂

Monday

Read ‘Starry-Eyed Stan’ and discuss the story with someone at home. What is Stan like? What words could we use to describe him? Write down these adjectives – we would love to see what you come up with.

Tuesday

Use the list of adjectives you wrote down yesterday and include them within a sentence. How many descriptive sentences can you write about Starry Eyed Stan?

Wednesday 

Look through the ‘Diary Writing’ PowerPoint to learn about the best way to write a diary entry. Imagine that you are Stan and write a diary entry to show how you were feeling when Lancelot appeared. Try to include as much detail as you can.

Thursday

Look at the ‘Question Marks’ PowerPoint to learn about the how and when to use question marks. Imagine you are a newspaper reporter that has been sent to interview Lancelot. What question would you want to ask him? Write these questions down and don’t forget to punctuate them with a question mark at the end.

Friday

Have you ever received a postcard? Look through the ‘How to Write a Postcard’ PowerPoint. Imagine that you are Jay and that you are feeling very proud of yourself for helping Stan and all the other Starfish. Design and write a postcard to your family to share your news about what has happened.

Art

Paper Art Project

You will need glue, scissors and coloured paper if you have any. If you don’t, you could paint or colour in plain paper before you have a go at your paper art.

The project is based on the work of French paper artist and illustrator Marine Coutroutsios.

This link will show you examples of Marine’s paper art:

http://www.partfaliaz.com/paper-artists/waves-and-ocean-by-paper-artist-marine-coutroutsios/

The artist uses different folding techniques, overlaps and cuts the paper to create a representation of water.

How will you create an ocean using only paper…?

PE

Have you tried PE with Joe yet? Use the link below to access these 30 minute workouts that the whole family can enjoy! We challenge you to do at least two of these this week and would love to see a photo of you in action!
