Dear parents and carers,
Year 1 children have had yet another fantastic week! Our children continue to expand their knowledge about the Great Fire of London in 1666 and are able to confidently retell the event in detail! They have enjoyed going back in time and immersing themselves into this period of time.
In English, we recapped key people and their importance in the Great Fire of London, then used a model of a ‘story mountain’ to break the story down into introduction, build-up, problem, resolution and ending. Children learnt the difference between the sections and ordered the story into these parts. We also focused on writing sentences in past tense using adjectives, verbs, exclamation marks and finally incorporating the word ‘and’ to connect two sentences.
Use this story mountain template to create your own Great Fire of London story.
In Maths, we have been adding by making 10, writing the equations and sentence stems, then going onto matching the tens frames and writing the equations.
It would be great if you could work together to complete this maths sheet.
In Phonics, we have been learning different spellings for the /i/ sound.
/i/ – find hind kind mind
/ie/ – fries, cries lie pie die tie
/y/ – sky dry my cry by
/i-e/ slide ride daytime crime pride
/igh/ – flight, might light fight right height
Please continue to practice spelling these words at home. Challenge- write these words in a sentence. Here is a phonics website with interactive games PhonicsPlay
Reading books will be changed next Friday 9th February.
We hope you have a restful and joyful weekend.
Year 1 Team
