Autumn 1

Homework 22nd September

 

Cursive, tricky word, capital letter and number formation.

Each week in class we will concentrate on 2 cursive letters, 2 tricky words, 2 capital letters and 2 numbers. We want to do this in manageable chunks for the children and give them the opportunity to really concentrate/focus on specific areas. Some of this you may feel your child can do already but it is just ensuring they are forming letters/numbers correctly (especially when starting cursive). It can be difficult to break 'bad habits' with formation if left too long so we are hoping this method will stop this from happening. The consolidation practice at home will then check your child can still form the letters/spell the words independently.

 

Please do not feel the need to print the document off, it can just be completed on a plain piece of paper if you wish. It also does not need to be handed into school. Please see document section below for this weeks activities. NO COMPLETION DATE - ONGOING ACTIVITY.

 

Big Write

For the Big Write on Wednesday 28th September children will be writing about how the monsters feel and why (we are going to encourage the use of  because). Please can you discuss the pictures with your child to see what ideas they come up with. Please can you then help them put these into sentences (this does not have to be written down). For example, 'The monster is happy because he had an ice cream or the monster is sad because he lost his toy'. COMPLETION DATE: 28.09.22.

 

Maths

One of the objectives for maths in Year 1 is for children to know the number bonds to 10 with rapid recall (this will then help them as they move onto times tables if they understand the relationships between numbers). Please can you look at the number bonds to 10 with your child (this may be using concrete objects, using pictures or verbally). The aim is for when you say one of the bonds such as 6 your child can then say 4 straight away. This is something that is best practiced little but often so children have the opportunity to transfer the learning to their long term memory. This was something that was worked on a lot in Reception so should be a familiar concept to your child. NO COMPLETION DATE - ONGOING ACTIVITY.

 

Homework 15th September

 

Cursive, tricky word, capital letter and number formation.

Each week in class we will concentrate on 2 cursive letters, 2 tricky words, 2 capital letters and 2 numbers. We want to do this in manageable chunks for the children and give them the opportunity to really concentrate/focus on specific areas. Some of this you may feel your child can do already but it is just ensuring they are forming letters/numbers correctly (especially when starting cursive). It can be difficult to break 'bad habits' with formation if left too long so we are hoping this method will stop this from happening. The consolidation practice at home will then check your child can still form the letters/spell the words independently.

 

For numbers and capital letters we would like them to always start at the stop. One of this weeks numbers is 1 and we want to ensure this is just done as a straight line rather than anything added to it. Furthermore, the tricky word I might seem like a simple one but it is a good opportunity to discuss with your child when you would use it in a sentence. For cursive, all the letters start from the line with a lead up. It is also important to note where the join is on the letter (at the top or bottom) this will be needed when the children start to join. We have been super impressed by their efforts with cursive so far!

 

Each week I will add a document with what needs to be completed at home that week. Please do not feel the need to print the document off, it can just be completed on a plain piece of paper if you wish. It also does not need to be handed into school. Please see document section below for this weeks activities. NO COMPLETION DATE - ONGOING ACTIVITY.

 

Big Write

For the Big Write on Wednesday 21st September children will be writing about what they can see in the pictures (please see the document section underneath to access the pictures). Please can you discuss the pictures with your child to see what ideas they come up with. Please can you then help them put these into sentences. They may want to add an adjective (describing word) to make their sentence more interesting. For example, 'I can see a cuddly bear.' COMPLETION DATE: 21.09.22.

 

Science

There would normally not be any topic homework but it is appropriate for this week. In science this half term we are looking at materials and what objects are made of. On Monday we identified some materials and the class had a good understanding of this. If you get an opportunity please could you have a 'materials hunt' at home. For example, can you go round and find some things made from glass, wood, metal, plastic etc. NO COMPLETION DATE.
