Reading homework

The reading challenge. The children need to read at least four times a week for ten weeks to receive their reading certificate at the end of the term. Please record when you read in the Partnership book as then we know when to change the book.

 

Please ensure that your child is being questioned on what they are reading to encourage their comprehension skills. Children are also to encouraged to use expression while reading. If you would like to read books from home as extra reading with your child please do so!

 

Upcoming Dates:

 

 

Week beginning 9th December

 

Maths

This week Year 1 will be learning about multiplication. They will be focusing on counting in 2, 5 and 10s. 

 

English

Year 1 will start focusing on invitations. They will be looking at the features of invitations and will have a chance to create their own. 

 

 

Spellings

 

When practising spellings Year 1 are encouraged to sound out the word. Can they spot the special friends? (two letters that make one sound, such as ay). Each week the spellings are linked to the sounds they have learnt.

 

Fun activities to learn spellings:

  • Use shaving foam 
  • Use sand
  • Air writing - spell the word in the air and someone says what word they are spelling.
  • Making the words out of playdough, blue tac or pasta.

 

 

Suggested poems for Eisteddfod

Ancient dragons

Dragons, they say, lived long ago.

Where they came from, I do not know.

Some like to fly and roar and prance.

Others are colourful and love to dance.

Long tails,

Huge wings,

Golden eyes,

Sharp claws,

Scaly skin,

Forked tongue…

I’m glad hey don’t live here anymore.

 

By Mrs Maloney

Friendly dragons

Friendly dragons are fun,

Flying through the air.

If it wasn’t for their fiery breath

You’d hardly know they were there.

 

They like to make sandcastles,

And play football in the park,

And thanks to their fiery breath

You can find them in the dark!

 

By Mrs Maloney

My New Pet

My new pet is a curious kind.

It popped out of an egg that I did find.

With beady eyes and curly claws

And razor sharp teeth filling its jaws.

Enormous wings like leathery sails,

Scaly armour right down its tail,

Roaring and huffing and puffing out fire,

To eat you for dinner is all it desires.

It’s not a snake, or a lizard, or bat…

 

My pet is a DRAGON!

 

How about that?
