PSHE:

Today we continue with last week’s topic – Forever Friends (Oak Academy Trust).

Lesson 2 – That’s Not Fair

In this lesson, we continue on the theme of friendship. We will look at a range of scenarios that commonly occur amongst friends and discuss whether they are fair or unfair. We will then consider how we can act fairly to everyone and not just our close friends.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/thats-not-fair-ccv3cc?activity=video&step=1

First, work your way through the lesson. Then complete the follow-up up task from the end of the lesson:

Task 1 – Sorting Activity

Decide whether different scenarios are fair or unfair. Once you have decided, sort them. These resources will help – Tues.8. Fair Unfair Grid / Fair Unfair Ideas For Sorting Tues. 8. If you have a printer, you can cut and stick. Don’t worry if you don’t … instead, divide your page into two, making 2 columns – fair and unfair. You can write your ideas or draw them if you prefer.

Wednesday 3rd March

English: Instructions – Day 8

Today we are going to look at a story called Don’t let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caw6iMBA2NA

We are going to be working with the pigeon over the next three days – he is going to help us with our instructions writing! 🐦 🚌  Can you retell what happened in the story to a friend / family member? Remember to start each sentence with time conjunctions such as First, Next, Then etc.

Task – Follow instructions to draw the pigeon from the story, without looking at a picture … no peeking allowed! Ask an adult to read the Weds. 8. How To Draw A Pigeon instructions to you one step at a time – you draw as the adult reads.  If it helps, divide your page into 4 parts (horizontal lines to divide up the page) – like this Practice 1 Drawing The Pigeon Blank. Once you have finished your drawing, look at your picture and compare it to the one in the story. How alike do they look?

Now repeat the exercise, this time looking at the picture. Use this guide to help you – there is a picture of the pigeon on the left hand side for you to copy: Practice 2 Drawing The Pigeon Pic. To Help. How does seeing the picture help?

Maths: – 

Place Value to 50 – All this week we will be exploring the hundred square and how it works. Today we are looking adding and subtracting 10.

Warm Up: Hundred Square/Chart Song.

The link is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWg5yCu4V8A

Now take a look at a video for Year 1 explaining and modelling adding and subtracting 10 on the 100 square. Start  at 4 mins 30 seconds where we left off yesterday. Pause the video at 8 minutes 31 seconds and have a go at the addition and subtraction sentences on the screen.

The link is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fydOb5NMYKQ

The sentences are:  Jumping   DOWNWARDS 10 + 10 =         15 + 10 =     17 + 10 =       JUMPING UPWARDS  17 – 10 =    23 -10 =        34- 10 =

Please write them out in your workbooks.  Remember + is jumping downwards (counting on 10 )  and – is jumping backwards (counting back  10 or taking away 10).

Challenge – Play 100 Square splat again from Monday, but this time adult splats a square and the child has to say or splat the number that is 10 less than that number and 10 more than that number.  Have Fun!

Maths

All children will be exposed to maths every day, through a range of practical and real life activities. The children will continue to work on their number recognition and counting skills.

We are currently having a big ‘push’ on number formation. It really is so important that the children can form their numbers correctly. Please could you take some time to practise these at home with your child? 

This term we will be focusing on the 4 main number operations. The children will have many opportunities to use practical equipment to support them with their learning and will also begin to record their calculations and discuss new strategies that could be used to solve problems, find solutions and reach answers. 

Lots of our work will be investigative. We encourage you to practise maths skills at home with your child. Look for numbers around the house, count the stairs, help pay for items in the shop… maths is everywhere!

English

Year 1 is such an important time in your child’s learning journey, in that they are still learning how to read and write.

Reading and phonics are key pieces of the Year 1 learning jigsaw. For children to reach their full potential, it is so important that they read at home as well as in school. Could we ask that you try to listen to your child read for around 5-10 minutes each night if possible? Please continue to read books from home as well as school books. 

If you haven’t already checked out Oxford Owl, please take a look! It is a lovely resource which has a library full of e-books relating to the Oxford Reading Tree scheme. Class login details are at the front of your child’s reading record book. These ebooks can be used to supplement home reading should you wish to use them.

Spring Reading Challenge Minis

Phonics is at the heart of all of our English learning in Year 1 – we need phonics to help us read and spell. As such, our daily small-group phonics sessions are an important part of our day. In Years 1 and 2 we use the Letters and Sounds programme in conjunction with Phonics Play for our daily phonics sessions.

The aim is to make phonics fun so we play games and sing songs to help us with our phonics learning. Please see top of this page for further details.

In Year 1 we aim for all children to become confident and independent writers. To achieve this we have a big focus on correct letter formation as well as phonics.

We choose texts and topics carefully to engage the children and make writing both purposeful and fun. 

                 

This term we will look at several well-known stories and traditional tales with repetitive patterns and phrases.

Throughout the term the children will be supported to speak and then write in complete sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

Your class teachers are Miss Platt and Mrs Tetlow. 

Mrs Leavy, Mrs Kulczycki and Miss Ewbank will also be working in Year One, supporting the children with their learning. 

Your child should have brought home a parental information pack back in September. It gives you an idea of what Year 1 is all about! We hope you find it useful. If you have any questions about any aspects of your child’s school life, please do come and ask.

The Year 1 Team

 

Important everyday information:

BOOK BAGS – Could we ask that your child brings his/her book bag to school every day?

UNIFORM – Please could you make sure your child’s belongings are clearly labelled – especially kits, jumpers / cardigans, shoes and coats.

PE/GAMES KIT – For now, children need an outdoor games kit (jogging bottoms / leggings, hoodie / sweatshirt plus trainers). Kits need to come into school on a Monday please, and will come home again on a Friday for washing. It is *really important* that children have the correct kits in school; if not, they will unfortunately not be able to take part in games lessons.

HOMEWORK – General homework (green folder) and spellings homework (red folder) are usually given out on Tuesdays, ready to be handed in the following Monday. Weekly spellings have not yet come home – please look out for these coming home in a couple of weeks. Please could we ask that red and green folders are both kept in your child’s book bag, ready to be handed in on a Monday morning? 

🙂 Many thanks for your co-operation! 🙂
