# Summer Term 1

## Homework 19.05.22 (Due in 25.05.22)

MATHS - Next week in maths we are looking at time. In Year 1 children need to be able to tell the time to o'clock and half past. Please can you introduce your child to a clock face (with numbers not roman numerals if possible). Can you then discuss the 2 hands on the clock (if there is a hand to show the seconds please only discuss briefly/ignore for you). Please explain that the long hand shows the minutes and the shorter hand shows the hour. If the minute hand is pointing to 12 this will show o'clock and if it is pointing to the 6 then this will show half past. We have found this is best done in relation to real life activities. For example, it is 12 o'clock so it is lunch time (look at what this looks like on the clock) or it is 7 o'clock so it is bedtime.

PHONICS - In phonics, we have recapped all the sounds and looked at some words from previous phonics screens. The children seemed to enjoy this activity! I have attached some words below to have a look at if you wish. I have also added the sound cards for the extra sounds we have covered that are not in RWI. The formatting might not be brilliant so I do apologise for this. If you are printing it is best to do it double sided or if not you can stick them back to back.

BIG WRITE -  There will be no Big Write next week due to the school trip to Tropical World on Wednesday 25th May.

HANDWRITING - Please could you continue to practice forming the cursive letters with your child. Please can you remind your child to start from the line with their lead up and then follow the correct motion for each letter. We have found previously that handwriting drastically improves when it is completed 1v1 as you can immediately spot any errors and correct them. Thank you for your support with this and this will be an ongoing task until the end of the year. We have introduced 3 sessions of handwriting during the week to support with this.

TRICKY WORDS - Please could you continue to recap the spelling of the Y1 tricky words with your child. We have found since half term that the reading of the words are fluent but the spellings can be trickier. We have had a real focus this week and the children have responded really well. Thank you for your support with this.

## Homework 12.05.22 (Due in 18.05.22)

MATHS - Next week in maths we are looking at money. Please can you look at all the coins and notes with your child (I know this is becoming harder each year as we move more towards a cashless way of living) but if you do have any at home to look at that would be brilliant. The common misconceptions to address are:

• There is a coin for each number. For example, if something was 7p you would pay with a 7p coin.
• The bigger the coin the more it is worth. For example, 2p is worth more than 5p because it is bigger.
• You can use more than one coin/note to make an amount. For example, to make 6p you could use 5p + 1p or you could use 2p + 2p +2p.

PHONICS - In phonics, we have recapped split digraphs. We have attached some alien split digraph words as well as a mix of real and alien words on the documents below for you to have a look at with your child.

BIG WRITE -  For Big Write next week, Year 1 will be retelling the story of Cinderella . I have attached the story below but if you have the book at home please could you go through it with your child and make sure they can sequence the events. The class will have a word mat available to them during the write to support with key words. Please be aware that the e-book attachment may not work.

HANDWRITING - Please could you continue to practice forming the cursive letters with your child. Please can you remind your child to start from the line with their lead up and then follow the correct motion for each letter. We have found previously that handwriting drastically improves when it is completed 1v1 as you can immediately spot any errors and correct them. Thank you for your support with this and this will be an ongoing task until the end of the year. We have introduced 3 sessions of handwriting during the week to support with this.

TRICKY WORDS - Please could you recap the spelling of the Y1 tricky words with your child. We have found since half term that the reading of the words are fluent but the spellings can be trickier. We have concentrated on some of these words in class such as 'they', 'was', 'said', 'there'. I have attached the Y1 tricky word list to the documents below. Thank you for your support with this.

## Year 1 Homework 05.05.22 (Due in 11.05.22)

MATHS - In maths this week we have moved onto place value to 100. Please could you recap one more/less to 100 with your child. Please can you particularly focus on crossing tens numbers. For example, one more than 39 or one less than 80. This can all be done verbally and we are aiming for rapid recall with these facts.

PHONICS - In phonics, we have recapped the set 3 sounds. We have noticed 3 sounds that the class are finding tricky. These are 'ew', 'aw' and 'er'. We have attached some real and alien words on documents below for you to have a look at with your child.

BIG WRITE -  For Big Write next week, Year 1 will be retelling the story of the Gingerbread Man. I have attached the story below but if you have the book at home please could you go through it with your child and make sure they can sequence the events. The class will have a word mat available to them during the write to support with key words.

HANDWRITING - Please could you continue to practice forming the cursive letters with your child.

## Year 1 Homework 28.04.22 (Due in 04.05.22)

In maths this week we have been looking at quarters. We have discussed that a quarter is 4 EQUAL parts. We have looked at finding a quarter of shapes, objects and quantities. Please could you recap finding a quarter with your child. Please use real situations to do this. If you have time, please could you also recap doubles and halves. We have found the children are confident finding half for numbers up to 12 and doubles up to 6 but are still a bit unsure for double 7, 8, 9 11, 12 and half of 14, 16, 18, 22, 24. We have spoke about finding a quarter of a number by halving it and halving it again. So to find a quarter of 8 you would half 8 which is 4 and then halve it again to get the answer 2.

In phonics, we have looked at 3 new sounds. The sounds are 'ie', 'ue' and 'au'. I have attached some real and alien words on documents below for you to have a look at with your child.

There will be no Big Write homework for next week as we will be visiting Mrs Harrison's garden. Instead of this please could you practice forming the cursive letters with your child. Please can you remind your child to start from the line with their lead up and then follow the correct motion for each letter. We have found previously that handwriting drastically improves when it is completed 1v1 as you can immediately spot any errors and correct them. Thank you for your support with this and this will be an ongoing task until the end of the year.

## Year 1 Homework 21.04.22 (Due in 27.04.22)

In maths this week we have been looking at half. We have discussed that half is 2 EQUAL parts. We have looked at halving shapes, objects and quantities. Please could you recap half with your child. Please use real situations to do this ... for example cutting a pizza in half or halving a chocolate bar or halving lego pieces so you and your child have the same amount. If you have time, please could you also recap doubles and discuss how this relates to half. For example, if we know double 2 is 4 then we also know that half of 4 is 2. Year 1 seem to be grasping this concept well.

In phonics, we have looked at 3 new sounds. The sounds are 'wh', 'ph' and 'ey'. I have attached some real and alien words on documents below for you to have a look at with your child.

For the big write next Wednesday, we will be retelling the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Please could you have a look at the story with your child and ensure they are confident sequencing it. I have attached a PowerPoint of the story below but if you have access to the book then this would be preferable. Children will have access to a word mat during the write to help with key words.
