Good morning Year 1 and welcome to your new home learning pages
This week we are starting to look at the topic of Africa.
In literacy, we are going to be focusing on the ‘Tinga Ting’ tales. We will be using two of the tales – ‘Why Lion Roars’ and ‘Why Elephant has a trunk’ but there are lots of different episodes you can enjoy on the CBeebies iplayer here:
In maths, we are looking at fractions and finding half of a shape or quantity. We have complied a range of teacher videos and corresponding worksheets that you can follow whilst watching.
Our thematic work is linked to both the Tinga Tinga tales in art and finding out about African countries and their flags in geography.
Each week a whole Trust challenge will be set for all children from Nursery to Year 6 to complete. This week the challenge is to make a 8 page mini book and Year 1 will be doing this challenge as part of Friday’s home learning (see this video on how to make one

Little Angel Theatre are doing a puppet show of ‘I Want My Hat Back’ by Jon Klassen , which is a story Year 1 studied in the autumn term. This is only available for the next week.

For further songs that the children will know please visit our YouTube channel run by our Pegasus teachers.
