# Summer 1

## Homework 23rd May

Please remember we do not expect anything handed in for any of the homework activities.

Personalised Sheet -  Please work on this sheet little but often. We want information to be transferred to long term memory and repetition is a good way to do this. If you would like to discuss anything on the sheet, please do not hesitate to ask. NO COMPLETION DATE - ONGOING ACTIVITY.

Phonics

The second week back (week commencing 10th June) will be phonic screen week for all Year 1 children in the country. In the document section below I have added some information about the screen and how you can help at home.  COMPLETION DATE: 10.06.24

Big Write

For the next Big Write children will be retelling the story of Cinderella. Please can you sequence the story with your child. Children will have key words and sequencing pictures available to them during the write. Please see the document section below for more information. The Big Write will be on Wednesday 5th June. COMPLETION DATE: 05.06.24

Maths

Please can you complete one of the arithmetic papers from the homework page if you have time. Let your child have a go at the questions themselves and then go through any corrections together. Assessment week will be the 3rd week back after half term and this will help with the preparation.

Maths homework this year will be focussed on our basic skills and NumBots. By the end of year 1 children need to be able to:

• Say 1 more/less for numbers to 100
• Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards (and from any given number)
• Know doubles (up to 12) and halves (up to 24)
• Know number bonds to 5,10 and 20

In Summer 1, we will continue to concentrate on Number Bonds to 20 (rapid recall) and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards (from any given number). We will also look at halves and quarters.

We have found these skills are best covered little but often. If you could find 5 minutes 3x a week to practise the above it would be greatly appreciated. If your child needs a number line, number square or manipulatives to help with this to begin with then that is absolutely fine. This is best done verbally as the aim is for rapid recall.

• For number bonds to 20 we have been looking at the number bond to 10 and then adding a 10 to one of the numbers. For example if 8 + 2 = 10 then we know 18 + 2 = 20.
• Count in 2s, 5s and 10s - Use the number square to spot the pattern and then try without when confident.

NUMBOTS - NumBots will continue this year and I will set challenges as well where appropriate. Please can you carry on completing your story record this week. Certificates will be handed out on Friday 7th June  in assembly for anyone who has completed a level. In order to get a certificate in the assembly on the Friday you will need to have completed your story record by the Wednesday. Any questions about maths, please ask a member of the Year 1 team. COMPLETION DATE: 07.06.24
