Happy Easter Year 1!

We hope you and your family have had a lovely break together. You are all heroes for staying safe at home over the past three weeks. This term we have decided to put the whole week of learning on the Year 1 class page, rather than posting work daily. Hopefully this will give you a little more flexibility to plan ahead and to work at your own pace. However, your family’s health and wellbeing should be your main priority, so do as much or as little as you feel appropriate. Remember to get lots of exercise and fresh air each day.

Research the shape of boats and find a few containers from around your house that are the same sort of shape. Draw pictures or take photographs of these containers and record what you find out in your Home Learning Book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The children have been allocated a 'Home Learning Book' so that they can record work completed at home. 

 

To help your child continue their learning whilst at home we enclose: 

A book mark showing your child's online usernames and passwords. 

A hundred square. 

A list of common exception words. (CEW) 

A Sound Mat showing Phase2, Phase 3, Phase 4 and Phase 5 graphemes. 

An 'Ultimate addition and subtraction challenge' sheet. 

Plus homework for this week. 

 

Each morning we will provide some activities for your child via the class pages of our Willows website. 

 

Every day we would like the children to: 

 

Literacy

- Read and then write 10 CEW with the focus on learning the spellings. Then to use one of these spellings in a sentence, rehearsing the sentence aloud before writing it into their Home Learning Book. Please only use pencil and pencil crayons and encourage your child to be increasingly accurate and independent. 

- We would like the Year 1 children to read through the sound mats saying each phoneme clearly. 

- It would be fantastic if the children read every day using either a real book or online using Bug Club. Please remember to talk about what they are reading and to ask comprehension questions to ensure their understanding of the text. 

Please 'curl up' to share a book with your child. We would like the children to record every book they have read and shared as a list at the back of their Home Learning Book. 

 

Numeracy 

- All children should complete their challenges in Numbots or Mathletics for approximately 20 minutes. The children need to count in steps of 1, 2, 5 and 10. Children should continue to develop their fluency by adding and subtracting with numbers to 20.
