Spring Term 2020
Our big question this term is....
Science Challenge - Create an animal fact file
Create a fact file about an animal of your choice. Please identify if the animal you have chosen is a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore and name some of the food that they eat.
Think creatively and include labelled photographs, paintings or drawings in your work to help you present the facts in an interesting and unique way.
Literacy Challenge - Learn and perform an animal poem
Learn a poem about an animal and perform it to the rest of the class. Think about using expression and projecting you voice clearly.
Maths Challenge - Shapes
Create a 2 dimensional shape picture of an animal or a 3 dimensional animal model. You should be able to name which 2D or 3D shapes you have used to make your animal.
RE Challenge - Families and Celebrations
Our topic in RE this half term is ‘Families and Celebrations.’ We will be learning about the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple and that the title ‘Jesus, light of the world’ comes from this story.
Create a piece of artwork to represent Jesus being the light of the world. You could use a variety of textures and mediums to complete your artwork.
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!
