Welcome to Year One's Summer Term Topic: Turrets and Tiaras
Please have a look at our topic leaflet for this term.
We've created a third Home Learning Workbook, with challenges to complete at home, inspired by the kinds of Independent and Topic-based learning we would do in class. Like the previous books, we'd expect this to take 2-3 weeks to complete.
Hello and welcome to the Summer Term. We hope that you all had a good Easter. We have added some Phonics and English activities to the website. For Maths, we'd recommend that you carry on using the WhiteRose resources (which are below) and please carry on reading using Bug Club. If you run out of books on Bug Club, please message your teacher so we can release more. Please carry on with your diary writing if you are already doing it.
A new video from the Castle Cook: answering all your questions
The Cook says than you for all the great questions that you sent either straight to her or to your teachers. She's sorry that she hasn't been able to answer them all, but she has been very busy at the Castle. In fact, the Castle is so busy, that they're looking for another Cook to help out. Could you write either a job description or a job advert to help them find one?
Our English plan this week follows the Serjeant at Arms' Challenge. A copy of the plan is under this video. Can you watch the video and take the Serjeant-at-Arms' Challenge?
Interview with the Serjeant-At-Arms
Thanks for your brilliant questions. Mr Wilkinson managed to grab an interview with the Serjeant at Arms. Apologies for the poor sound quality in some places - we were socially distancing and it seems that the Castle's internet connection wasn't great.
The Grand Tournament
We have short highlights of the knights' tournament. For today's writing task, can you write a short news report of what you watched? Don't forget to put a Headline at the top and write in the Past tense.
Thursday's Challenge - describe a character
Mrs Dell has drawn this brilliant picture of a knight. I wonder what he looks like? I wonder what kind of person he is? Can you write a character description and upload it on Seesaw?
Friday challenge: We've had a letter from the Serjeant-at-Arms. Can you help him?
Blacksmiths made all the metal objects for the castle: the weapons and armour for the knight and soldiers, pots and pans for the kitchen, crowns and jewellery for the royals, and tools like hammers and axes. Enjoy the videos and the tasks!
Questions and answers with the Blacksmith
I've tried to answer all your questions. Sorry, if I missed some. Please watch these two videos as well - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVAJdhzN-Ak https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8coEuftCNE
Meet the Lady in Waiting
English Plan: The Lady in Waiting's Challenge (week commencing 18 May)
This week's English lessons are based on the book Ruby's Sword, written by Jacqueline Veissid and illustrated by Paola Zakimi (Published by Chronicle Books - ISBN 978-1452163918). Watch this video of Mrs Dell reading the story and then try today's work in the plan.
