Spring Term 2020
Our big question this term is....
Please feel free to contact Mrs Millard on the email address below to discuss homework tasks or to share any home learning experiences.
Literacy - World Book Day word costume. Please read the word that has been sent home on a sheet of paper and work together to think of a costume that represents this word for World Book Day on Thursday 5th March.
Maths - Design a board game or card game that uses addition or subtraction skills to complete the game. Make sure that you can explain and demonstrate how to play the game to the rest of the class.
Science - Think of an interesting way to sort or display different groups of animals. Animal groups include: fish, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians.
RE - During Lent we reflect on how we can make small changes to bring us closer to Jesus. What changes and kind choices are you going to make during Lent? Are you going to give your time to help others? Make a poster or journal to tell others about changes and promises you have made.
Passport to the World - Mexico
During this half term, will be exploring stories about animals including :
Can you remember the main characters in these stories? Can you describe them? Who is your favourite character? Why?
What are the main events? Try to retell one of the stories to your family.
Read, Read, Read!!
Please read every night with a grown up at home and ask them to sign your book.
REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR READING RECORD TO SCHOOL WITH YOU EVERY DAY.
'Phonics is a way of teaching children to learn to read quickly and skillfully.' DoE 2013.
We are working hard to learn all our different phonic sounds. The children will be bringing home sound mats, words and games to support their learning in a fun way.
Please encourage the children to use these as often as possible.
We use 'alien words' each day to practise segmenting and blending sounds. These words are made up and really make us think about the sounds that we can see.
In numeracy this half term we will be learning about number, place value, addition and subtraction and also developing our problem solving skills.
Play the number bonds game by bursting bubbles that make pairs to 10 or 20. You have to be fast!
Play 'Hit the Button' to answer questions as quickly as possible. Have fun!
This is the prayer we are learning to sing and sign in Year 1 as part of our reflection of the Angelus prayer.
Now you can practise learning the words and actions at home!
