Good morning Year 1.  I hope you managed to complete your jobs yesterday. Continue to work through the activities you are able to manage with your grown-up.

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.

We miss you very much!

Activity 4

Every day spend 5 minutes practicing your letter formation. Remember to start and finish in the correct place.

Activity 5 – CVC words

Look at the CVC words below. What sound does the word begin with? Can you fred talk and read the word? Can you then trace the word and then write it independently. Some boys and girls may be able to put the word into a short sentence? After that can you match the word to the picture by drawing a simple line.

Activity 6 Geography: Physical and Human Features

Watch the video below on BBC Bitesize. The video discusses what a human and physical feature is.  Can you then sort the images below into physical and human features.

Year 1L/S Class Blog 28.9.20

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!

Mrs Stubbs Ms Liddle Ms Davison  

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.

https://www.google.com/search?q=burglar+bill+youtube&rlz=1C1GCEV_enGB866GB866&oq=Burglar+Bill+you+tube&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0.8881j0j15&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

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.
