Good Morning Year 1, I hope you all had a lovely half term and enjoyed the outdoors as much as I did! I enjoyed spending it with my family and planting flowers in my garden. It was lovely to speak with some of you and your grown ups on the telephone over the last week. I am looking forward to seeing some of you back in school this week. I have uploaded this week’s home learning to keep you busy. I would love to see what you have been doing with your families, please ask your grown up to follow our school Facebook page and share this with me and all the other adults at school.
Greetings from Mrs Organ
Home learning w/c 15.06.20
Phonics and SPAG mats - Mat 2 in both documents
Welcome to the Spring Term in Year 1
In Maths, we will be working learning about place value with numbers to 50.
In English, we will be learning to write journey stories based on the book ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. We will be learning to use adjectives in our writing to capture the reader’s attention. We will also be learning how to write a set of instructions, starting by explaining to Mr’s Organ how to make a jam sandwich! We will finish the term looking at poetry and will write our own rhyming poem about a journey! This term we will also be introducing a new phonic scheme called Read Write Inc which will help us with our reading and spelling in all lessons. Whole class reading will help us to develop our retrieval and inference and prediction skills while being exposed to a range of different genres including fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts.
Our topic this term is ‘Explorers’. We will be learning about Sir Francis Drake and Amelia Earhart History and what they became famous for. In Geography we will be looking the seven continents and five oceans of the world and dream about where we would like to travel in the world!
In Science we will be learning about everyday materials and will carry out an investigation about the best everyday material for an umbrella which an explorer can use whilst travelling around the world! Indoor PE this term is dance and we will use a range of music to allow our bodies to move in different ways through our theme of explorers. Outside PE is throwing and catching where we will be developing our basic ball handling skills and ow to control a ball.
In Art this term we will be focusing on colour and texture and will explore and experiment with lots of collage materials. In PSHE we will be thinking about our dreams and goals, how to overcome obstacles and celebrate successes. In music we will be handling instruments and learning the names of them. In Computing this term will be learning about algorithms and will use an algorithm to programme a beebot.
- PE is on Tuesday (Indoors) and Wednesday (Outdoors)
- Homework books will be given out on a Friday and will be due in the following Thursday.
- Home reading books will be checked every day so need to be in school daily. The children are expected to read for a minimum of 10 minutes a day. This will need to be recorded in their book and signed by an adult.
Please come in to see me if you would like to discuss anything.
Welcome to Year 1!
In Year 1 we are working hard to identify number bonds within 10. We use a tower of cubes as our “whole” and split each tower into two parts to find pairs of numbers that make our whole. Look at us being busy doing this!
We have been busy in Maths sorting a range of shapes. Mrs Organ gave us some clues to use to sort 2D shapes accordingly. Look at our wonderful sorting!
We have been busy learning the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and focusing on the repeating sections. Have a look at the storymap we created to help us retell the story orally and used to have a go at writing the story ourselves!
