Home learning tasks are issued each Friday and are due the following Friday. The tasks and any necessary resources are stuck into a book which must be in school every Friday. Sometimes home learning tasks should be recorded in the book and at other times it will be more beneficial to do practical activities with your child to consolidate skills learned in school. Please keep the book safe and make sure any work done in it is neat and tidy. Please write in pencils only, thank you.
Every child has a Reading Record and a reading book from their colour band. Please read with your child as often as you can, but at least three times each week. Regular reading practise is essential in helping children develop confidence and competence with reading. Book changing is now done by adults in school. Each time you read with your child please record this in the Reading Record and remember to write if you finish a book so that we know to change it for a new one! As soon as the children need their book to be changed they should place their reading book inside their Reading Record and place both together in the tray by the classroom door at the start of the day. Please help your child by reminding them to do this if you have read together.
By the end of Year One children should be able to read and spell the first 100 high-frequency words. Some of these words can be sounded out such as ‘at’ and others, such as ‘was’, cannot. Those that cannot be sounded out are called ‘tricky words’. Today your child is bringing home a bookmark of the first set of high-frequency words they should practise reading and spelling. High frequency word reading and spelling is assessed in school each half term so please practise these words regularly as on-going home learning. The way you practise these words is up to you – you may like to make it fun by writing the words in chalk, paint, shaving foam or even typing them on the computer.
Home Learning - 6th January
Your home learning this week is to research the type of outfits that children would have worn in Victorian times.
Parents and Carers
Please prepare an outfit for your child to wear on our trip to the Priest’s House Museum on Monday 23rd January.
The images below provide examples of Victorian style as well as examples of what children wore on the trip last year.
If you have any questions about your child's outfit please don't hesitate to ask.
Please look out for the trip letter which will come home next week - If you are able to help on the trip we would love to hear from you!
Many Thanks, Miss Prince and the Year One team
In the home learning this week it says that the children's spelling quiz results from last week are in their home learning books. I am very sorry but this is a mistake - the children did their spelling quiz in their English books so they had lined pages to help them.
I have prepared a sticker for each child which tells you their spelling quiz score. These will be stuck into the children's school diaries on Monday so you know how they got on and whether they should continue to practise last week's words as well as their new ones. Hopefully the children have been able to make a start learning their new words anyway.
Thank you in advance for your understanding - if you have any questions please don't hesitate to speak to me or any member of the Year One team!
Miss Prince :-)
Steps to Success for Multiplication
1. Read the number sentence (eg; 3 'groups of' 5 equals)
2. Draw the groups
3. Draw the dots
4. Count the dots and write the answer
There is no home learning this week in order to allow children to read lots and be well-rested before their special phonics jobs next week. Of course, the children can continue to practise the games on the phonicsplay website should they wish to.
Many Thanks, Miss Prince
