WALT create map symbols for our English settings.



Good morning Year 1! We hope you have enjoyed your tasks this week for both English and Geography. Today, we are going to combine what we have done in both English and Geography this week and create some map symbols for your settings that you created in English. You might have drawn a setting, created one out of Lego or a car mat. Whichever way you have created your setting, you will be able to use it for this task!


Today, you are going to create some symbols that would help someone identify the different areas of your map. You might have some houses, a lake, a car park as well as other things on your setting/map that you can create a little symbol for - using ideas from those you have studied in the previous geography lesson.


Click on the PowerPoint below to find out a little bit more!



Your task is on the PowerPoint but if you wanted to use the attached document as a guide to help you with your symbols, please do!


We can't wait to see all of your symbol designs!

WALT understand what different map symbols stand for.


In our Geography lessons we are focussing on maps and our compass skills. Maps have different ways of telling us information and have symbols instead of having the writing on the map itself.


In today's geography lesson, we're going to find out what the different map symbols mean and how we can work them out.


Click on the PowerPoint to get started.



Your task today is to find out what different map symbols mean. There is a document with a key in at the bottom of all tasks if you need a helping hand!


To identify the different symbols in the key and write them on the dotted line

To draw the different symbols in the key (3 have been chosen for you to draw) and then identify 3 more that you can see in the map and draw them.
To find and draw 6 different symbols in the map and put them into the key below - see if you can find out what they mean as well!
If you need a helping hand - use this key to help you!

WALT understand what it means to be honest.


Our value of the month for April is honesty. In this PSHE lesson you will learn what it means to be honest and think about why we are honest with each other.


Please click on the PowerPoint below to get started.

Some questions to think about when reading the story 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf':


  •  What do you think the boy could have done differently?
  •  Is it OK to lie?
  •  Do you think the villagers would have believed the boy had he not lied the first time?
  •  Do you think the boy regrets his actions?

Today's task:


We would like you to draw a picture of the boy in the story when people did not believe him. Have a think about his emotions and how he would be feeling when people did not believe him - what would his face look like and his body language?


Then there is a sentence underneath we would like you to answer that is as follows:


'I should be honest because...'

WALT create art in the style of Mondrian


This year, we have been looking at abstract art. We have learned about Kandinsky, explored warm and cool colours and mixed colours to create secondary colours. Today we are going to look at another abstract artist called Piet Mondrian.


You can find out more about Mondrian here.

We are going to recreate Mondrian's 'Composition with Red, Yellow and Blue'. 


Have a think about the following questions:

  • What colours did Mondrian use? 
  • What are these colours called?
  • What shapes can you see?
  • What is abstract art?
  • What was he famous for?




Your task is to create art in the style of Mondrian. You can choose how you do this depending on what media you have at home. Be as creative as you like - you do not have to copy the original!


You could use:

  • Purple Mash 2Do (choose the lines option)
  • Paint or paint printing
  • Pencils
  • Pastels
  • Strips of paper


Watch Miss Hemmings have a go at home on her whiteboard (she thinks her cat enjoyed it!) Remember, Mondrian did not use a ruler so Miss Hemmings created this freehand.

Challenge: to demonstrate your knowledge, write a sentence to describe what you have learned about Mondrian. You can discuss the colour choice, the style or a fact about his life.
