If your child is reading a Ditty Book, they will be learning to write short sentences. This will help them to practice their writing skills. They need to read the letter sounds, then the words. When they are familiar with the words, they should read the sentences. Once they are familiar with the sentences, they can copy writing out the sentences.

Design and Technology

Our Topic is Superheroes and we have discussed what a hero is and who might be a hero.

Ask your child to design a face mask.

They can design their own pattern, images and colours

Happy Wednesday Year 1!

Once again you are all working so hard and we are missing you all very much.

Just a reminder once you have completed your work, it can either be (1) written out on paper and returned to school, or (2) photographed and emailed back to school to be checked.

Activity 1 – Numeracy

Complete the tables below by drawing the correct amount of counters.

Phonics videos – Activity 3

I have once again included a link which will take you to some phonics videos. Recap any sounds you may find tricky. Remember to practice your letter formation.

If your child is reading a Ditty Book, they will be learning to write short sentences. This will help them to practice their writing skills. Read the short sentences below. What sounds do they recognise? Can they blend the sounds together to read the word? Can they say the short sentence? Can they then write the short sentence?

Happy Tuesday Year 1!

Once again you are all working so hard and we are missing you all very much.

Just a reminder once you have completed your work, it can either be (1) written out on paper and returned to school, or (2) photographed and emailed back to school to be checked.

Activity 1 : Maths

We continue to represent numbers in different ways and introduce place value. So try to draw children’s attention to the tens frame. There are apples in all the squares of the first frame. If children want to count them, that’s fine. Eventually they will have the confidence to recognise if the frame is full then there are 10 items and that means 1 ten.  The other frame is not full. There are 5 apples. How many in total/altogether? 15

Activity 2 : Literacy

Fred talk read the word, colour in the words that you can read!

PSHE: Activity 5

The children have explored why we need money, what we buy with our money and how we look after it.

Happy Monday Year 1!

Hope you are all safe and well. Into the second week we go.  You are all working so hard and we are missing you all very much.

Just a reminder once you have completed your work, it can either be (1) written out on paper and returned to school, or (2) photographed and emailed back to school to be checked.

Activity 1 : Maths

We have recently looked at representing numbers in different ways.

Information for Adults (for activity below)

Any way to make the number below is fine. If you don’t have counters, use coins. Ask children to count out the correct number of pennies first (check they are correct by slowly touch counting and asking your child to help you count 1, 2, 3, 4….). Put the pennies in the same position as below. So 10 + 5 = 15

Ask your child. What other ways can you make 15? Using the same amount of coins, muddle up the pile. Separate the coins into two piles and see what new way you can make 15 e.g. 9 + 6 = 15  8 + 7=15 there is a long list of combinations. See how many they can come up with and write down their combinations for them and see how their faces shine. If you think your child is struggling with 15, don’t worry, you just reduce the number. How many ways can you make 4? 2+2, 1+3, 3+1, 0+4, 4+0 Model how to do this. Fantastic! How many ways can you make 6? Brilliant! Once they realise this isn’t a trick question and get the gist of the task. They will gain in confidence and move onto numbers over 10. They will love you for it, we promise!

Activity 2 : Literacy

We love to read Peace at Last by Jill Murphy and the children enjoy listening to this story.

Listen to, or read the story together.

Invite your child to tell you what they liked/disliked about the story. Who are the main characters? What happens? How does it end? Encourage children to look at the pictures and talk about what they can see. Look at the text, can they see any letters they recognise from their phonic sessions, or letters from their name.

Look at the pictures below. Can you put them into the correct order?

Phonics videos – Activity 3

Congratulations to all the children in Year 1 for another wonderful week settling into school. The children have quickly adjusted to our new routines and are working hard to complete their learning activities every day. Well done Everyone!

Here are a few reminders for children and adults:

  • Homework and reading books are sent home on a Friday and should be returned on the following Wednesday. Please keep the homework bag until then, so your child can continue to read their books every day, to you.
  • Water bottles should be brought in daily. Unfortunately, we do not have facilities to offer cups and drinks.
  • Children are required to bring a warm coat to school every day as many lessons can include going outside – whatever the weather.

Thank you again, for your patience with queuing at drop off and collection times. Just to remind you the school day begins at 8:45am and ends at 3:15pm for  Year 1.

We have listed below the work we will be following this week.

Have a great week!

Maths: one more/less

The children have been investigating more and less.

Show them everyday objects e.g. 2 apples. How many if I have one more/less. Let them see the number of items becoming larger if we add one more, or smaller if we have one less.

Literacy:

The children are learning the days of the week from memory. Let them sing our days of the week song for you.

Phonics

In phonics children have revisited th and ng. Continue to practice your robot voice and speak in letter sounds e.g Do you want some j-a-m? This will help them to blend letter sounds in small words (no bigger than 3 letters.

Science:

This week we are beginning to learn about the 5 senses.

Geography:

We have been learning about the countries of the United Kingdom. This week we will be investigating the surrounding seas. Can you complete the map labelling? Use an atlas to help you.

Year 1 – Week Beginning 21st September 2020

The children have completed their first week in their new class and year group. We are very proud at how hard they have worked and how they have adjusted to these exceptional circumstances, they are a credit to you.

We would like them to build on their good work by practicing these areas of learning.

Literacy

Name writing and sitting letters on a line.

Encourage children to practice writing their name.  Making sure they have a capital letter at the beginning and try to sit letters on the line (lined paper).  If they can write their first name, why not try writing their second name too.

Phonics – The sounds we have taught this week are: b, f, w, v,

Support your child to practice saying the letter sounds? Can they practice writing the letter? These rhymes below will help your child to form the letters correctly when writing them.

b- “down the lace to the heel, round the toe”    f-“down the stem and draw the leaves”

w-“down, up, down up”                  v-“down a wing, up a wing”

Burglar Bill by Allan and Janet Ahlberg.

Can you read the book or watch ‘Burglar Bill”’ on you tube. Follow the link below.

Read or listen to the story together and talk about what is happening in the story e.g. who are the characters in the story? Why did Burglar Bill sleep during the day? What did Burglar Bill find in the brown box? Who broke into Burglars Bills house? What happened at the end of the story?

Maths

The children have explored number, counting forwards, ordering and recognising numbers to 20. Help them to build on this by singing counting songs and looking for numbers in the environment e.g. numbers on the bus, house doors etc.

Writing numbers

Encourage children to practise writing numbers. Start with 0 and go all the way up to 10.  If they write numbers to 10, why not try a tricky challenge and write them to 20.

In PSHE we have explored different feelings. Encourage your child to talk about how they are feeling. Discuss why they might have any negative feelings (anger, frustration, disappointment etc.) and how to deal with them e.g. do something that makes them feel happy, calm etc.

P.E is on a Tuesday and children can come into school wearing their full P.E. kit.

Homework bags will be sent out on a Friday afternoon and should be returned on Monday and no later than Wednesday.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.
