Well-done to all Year one’s, we are very proud of you all for showing such courage in your learning this week!
In Phonics, we focused on the /oo/ sound spelt /oo/ /u/ /ould/ used in words such as: book, pull and could. We have also been reading a variety of ‘letters’ and trying to spot the key sounds during our daily ‘reading for pleasure’ times.
In English, we focused on the story ‘The Day A Crayon Quit’ and used this to help understand how letters are constructed, e.g. date, address, main body and finally ways to close.
We continued to focus on writing short sentences in our letter writing and applied the three rules: capital letter, finger spaces and full stops.
If you would like to continue with letter writing at home using short simple sentences, then please bring these in to celebrate in class. Perhaps write a letter to a family member, friend or an adult in school. We are sure that Dr Biddulph would love to receive some cheerful letters!
In Maths, we continued to review partitioning, focused on counting on within 20, using tens frames and number lines to ‘confidently’ represent equations. If you would like to continue this at home, here is the sheet Tens frame blog activity from last week for you to revisit.
In Science, we have continued our focus on materials (metal, wood, fabric, plastic and glass) and enjoyed investigating which ones were magnetic or not.
Perhaps you could continue this investigation at home and record your findings, we would love to share and compare your results.
Phonics: ‘Dan Draws A Monster’. We will be learning the <or> sound spelt /or/ /a/ /aw/ used in words such as: for, ball and lawn.
Please continue to use the bookmarks to record your Childs reading experience together. Your feedback is very important and helps us with identifying where your child may need to revisit certain sounds.
In English, our focus text will be, ‘Never Tickle A Tiger’ By P. Butchart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H634SQs_R3s
We will also listen to a variety of other stories that contain various voices/tones and learn about exclamation marks! Perhaps you could practice giving instructions in different voices!
In Maths, we will be exploring ‘teen’ numbers 11 to 19. Learning to recognise teen numbers as ten (a group of 10 ones) and some ones. 12 would be 1 ten and 2 ones.
Science: We will build on our understanding of magnetism with some fun experiments and creating magnetic games!
Please ensure your child has a warm black/navy track suit and outdoor trainers (plimsoles are for indoor only), which are clearly named for P.E
Happy weekend everyone!
