Autumn 2

Homework 24th November

Personalised Homework - Please continue to work on specific targets from your child's sheet. Due Date - Ongoing

 

Big Write - For next weeks Big Write we will be retelling the Christmas Story. We will look at the Christmas Story during RE on Monday but we have been discussing the sequence during our rehearsals. I have attached a PowerPoint with the story on for you to discuss with your child. Please note children will have a word mat available during the write with the spelling of key words. BIG WRITE WILL BE ON WEDNESDAY 30th NOVEMBER

 

Maths (Sumdog) - On Friday, in your child's reading folders you will receive login details for a programme called Sumdog. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS COMPLETELY OPTIONAL AND ONLY IF YOUR CHILD IS SHOWING AN INTEREST. I have set some challenges which can be completed on a laptop or tablet (if you download the app). We are not advocating screen time but some parents with older siblings have mentioned if it would be possible to use Sumdog so we are providing the option. Sumdog is a maths based programme and looks at developing fluency. If you have any questions/queries about anything, please do not hesitate to ask a member of the Year 1 team.

 

Nativity - Please can you continue to practise the lines with your child until they are confident with them. This is making a huge difference during rehearsal so thank you. Due Date - Ongoing

Big Write - For next weeks Big Write we will be looking at our locality. Children will be writing about Collingham, Wetherby and Leeds. I have attached some pictures for support at home. This week we have looked at human and physical features which is also on the document. Children can refer back to our walk last week and the places we saw. Children will have the pictures with them during the write. Some examples of sentences might be 'Collingham is a village and it is where I live.' or 'A human feature of Collingham is the church and a physical feature is the river.' or 'Leeds is bigger than Collingham because it is a city.'

PLEASE NOTE DUE TO NATIVITY REHEARSAL, BIG WRITE WILL BE ON TUESDAY 22nd NOVEMBER

Homework 10th November

 

Personalised Homework - Please continue to work on specific targets from your child's sheet. Due Date - Ongoing

 

Big Write - Following the success of this weeks Big Write where the children had to describe pictures we have decided to do a similar activity next week (see pictures in the document section below). We found that children were confident and had an accurate sentence structure. However, for this week we are going to the remove the I can see/taste/smell/feel/hear and see if the class can think of alternate ways to start their sentences. We have also been trying to encourage using an adjective (describing word) in their sentence. For example, 'The huge castle was in the middle of the dark woods.' instead of 'The castle was in the woods.' PLEASE NOTE DUE TO NATIVITY REHEARSAL, BIG WRITE WILL BE ON TUESDAY 15TH NOVEMBER

 

Nativity - Parts for the Nativity will be handed out on Monday 14th November so please look out for this in bags. Any lines that your child has to learn will also be sent out. Please can you try and practise the lines with your child until they are confident with them. We will also be sending out the lyrics to Away in a Manger, please can you discuss the wording with your child as well as practising the lines. Thank you :). Due Date - Ongoing

 

If you have any questions/queries about anything, please do not hesitate to ask a member of the Year 1 team.

Homework 3rd November

 

Personalised Homework

On Friday, you will receive your child's personalised homework. This will show their specific next steps in learning. Please do not worry if you think there is a word/sound on the sheet which you think they know. What we are finding is that children will show they can say/spell a word a couple of times but not consistently. A real focus for the whole school this year is for information to be transferred to long term memory, we will be referring to this as 'sticky learning'. For the reading of phonic sounds/tricky words our suggestion would be to make flash cards and do this for short bursts but regularly. Good times to do this might be ... in the bath, before/after dinner, before your child reads their reading book. At school, if a child is reading 1v1 we will flash the phonic sounds and tricky words to them before they start. We normally find this gets them into the reading 'zone'. If you think your child is confident with a word/sound please continue to have it in your pack as it will be doing no harm revisiting. For maths, we would suggest to do as much verbally as you can and again do this for short periods of time but often. If your child needs a number line/square in front of them to start with then this is absolutely fine. If you would like to discuss your child's sheet with a member of the Y1 team, please do not hesitate to ask. Due Date - Ongoing

 

Big Write

For the Big Write on Wednesday 9th November, children will be using their senses to describe the pictures (please see attached below). Please can you discuss the pictures with your child using the sentence prompts on the sheet and see what ideas they come up with. Children will need to use their imagination for some of the senses but we are looking forward to seeing the ideas they come up with. Children will have the pictures and sentence prompts available to them during the write. Due Date - Wednesday 9th November
