English

For English this week, we will continue our unit on diary writing. We will be introducing the children to the story 'Vlad and The Great Fire of London'. We will then share-write a diary entry from the point of view of Vlad the flea. The children will then plan and write their own diary entries as if they were living in 1666 and experiencing the Great Fire of London first hand. 

Maths

This week, we will continue exploring addition and subtraction within 10. We will be solving word problem involving addition before moving on to explore subtraction. 

 

Non-core - History

This week, we will be continue our History topic - The Great Fire of London. We will be finding out about what happened at the time and how we know what happened through exploring paintings and Samuel Pepys eye-witness accounts. We will learn about how the fire changed London, such as replacing wooden buildings for stone structures with wider streets and the introduction of the London Fire Brigade. 

 

P.E.

Please make sure that you bring your P.E. kit into school Monday-Friday. We will have a 30 minute session of PE each day from Monday-Thursday.

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.

 

Below is a list of year 1 common exception words.

 

Homework wb 12/10/20

 

For homework this fortnight, we would like the children to use >,< and = to compare number bonds within 10. Please find the activity sheet below and this will also be sent home in your child's homework book. For those who would like an extra challenge, I have included a challenge question to the bottom of the homework sheet. You could also encourage your child to practise number bonds to 20.

 

The homework is due in on Friday 23rd October.
