## Half-term Home Learning

Posted on Sunday 24 May 2020 by Mr Catherall

Because this week is half-term, we’re taking a break from the usual daily home learning tasks (just like we did at Easter). Instead, we’ve prepared a menu of home learning activities that you might want to dip into this week – these are optional only, but you might want to encourage your child to have a go at being a quiz master, doing some up-cycling, presenting a cookery masterclass or any of the other activities.

Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have a happy and healthy half-term.

Hi Year 1!

Geography

Today we are thinking about different geographical features. These features are split into physical and human features.

Physical features are natural.

Human features are things that have been created by humans and would not have existed in nature without humans.

1.Firstly have a look at this document to show what physical and human features might be.

2.Using these examples, sort them into physical and human features.

3.Can you think of any other physical and human features you could add?

Good luck with today’s tasks! Let me know how you get on.

Hello Year 1!

I hope you had a great weekend.

Similar to a couple of weeks ago,  it would be great if you could write a quick sentence about what you’ve been up. Then, take a picture of it and send me it to me. It’d be lovely to hear how you’ve been keeping busy.

Remind yourself of these split diagraphs:

a_e

e_e

i_e

o_u

u_e

Then, click on this link and complete the sheet.

Also, here is a link to another traditional tale. We will be focusing on this tale this week.
