Year 1 & 2
WEEKLY UPDATE w.c. 30/3/20
Tweet us any work that you're particularly proud of @TrinityBingley, or email us at email@example.com. Make sure you put your teacher's name at the top of your email and your own name at the end.
Watch the video showing signs of spring. Have a think about other things we expect to see as spring arrives. Then choose one of the following activities to complete:
- Write a poem about the things we see in spring. Can you include all of your senses?
- Write a diary from the point of view of a new lamb. What would it be thinking about? How would it feel to be skipping around the field with its friends?
- Write a list of all the things we see in spring time. Can you think about the things that will change as we move through spring towards summer.
You could also draw or paint a picture of a landscape in spring, compose a piece of music that sounds like spring, or collect some natural items to make a nature collage! Listen to Vivaldi's piece of music called Spring for some more inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-dYNttdgl0
Watch the video to remind yourself about how to use column addition and subtraction. Complete at least 5 additions and 5 subtractions. If you were crossing the tens in class, make sure you challenge yourself to keep doing that at home!
Visit the website www.science-sparks.com and choose an experiment to complete at home. Make a prediction of what you think will happen before you begin and then see if you were right! Make sure you ask an adult for help, and make sure it's OK to use all the things you need.
Why don't you try making one of these snap puppets? Watch the video and work out what you will need. It doesn't matter if you haven't got any coloured paper - decorate a plain sheet yourself! Watch the video again, pausing it after each step so that you can have a go. Take a photograph of your puppet and tweet it to us.

Work for Children
During the school closure, we want to make sure your child still has access to the education to which they are entitled. Alongside the home learning packs from your child's teacher, there are countless online resources that can be accessed at home. Some need to be printed, but many can be used on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Here are some of the ones we think will be the most useful to you at this time:
Signs of spring
I have made a short film of some of the signs of spring that I have noticed on my daily dog walks by the river. Before you watch it, get a piece of paper and write down all the things that you can think of that I might have seen. As you watch it, tick off the ones that you have written on your list.
Let me know if you enjoyed watching it and if there were any things missing that I could go and search for! I’ll be uploading another one which I took in the woods.
Below is a 'How to' video for column addition and subtraction. This method is taught in Year 2 and the children had been working on this in school.
Keep an eye on this page for future videos on multiplication and division.
Listen to these instructions about how to make a smoothie. Can you rewrite them? Could you draw them for children who can't yet read? If you have the ingredients at home, ask an adult if you can have a go at making one!
Choose 5 words a day from your child's list to learn and use in sentences. The sillier the sentence, the better! You can also use dice to play this spelling game and make learning to spell more fun!
Here are some phonics resources in preparation for the phonics screening test for Year 1.
When you need a break from doing maths and learning all your spellings, you could take a look at this website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/ten-pieces/get-creative-with-classical-music-at-home/z6tqqp3
You can listen to different pieces of music and respond to them using art or dance. Let us know how you get on! Enter text...
