Computing home learning:

Hi Year 1, 

Before we broke up, we were using the beebots in our Computing lessons. This involved giving them directions to get to the other side of the table or to follow a route planned for them on a large piece of paper. I would like you to see if you can remember how to give directions. With someone else in your house, see if you can give directions to get to and from different places. You could go from your bedroom to the kitchen, or the lounge to the front door. Try to use instructions like "take 6 stepss forward" or "turn left" or "turn right". If you get an instruction wrong, can you fix it to give the right instruction? 

Have fun!

Religious Education (R.E.) home learning:

Hello Year 1!

This term in RE we looking at Special Books.

The Buddhist special book is known as the Tipitaka which means 'three baskets'. This is because it was written on palm leaves, and stored in baskets.

Watch the video telling two Buddhist stories. You might remember them.

Challenge: How can we care for animals? Draw a picture of your pet (or animal that you would like to have). Write a sentence or tell your grown up how you would take care of it. Look out for Mrs Westall's YouTube video on looking after your pet.

Music home learning:

Have a go at playing this tune (attached file) on the virtual piano!

The notes on the piano are labelled so follow the words on the sheet and play the note shown above the words. If you're finding it tricky, try singing along to help you remember the rhythm of the melody! If you have a real piano/keyboard/glockenspiel at home, try to use that as well.
