Class 1 Homework Challenges 01.03.19

Date: 2nd Mar 2019 @ 11:45am

Here is what we’ve been up to in our first week back, feel free to pick and choose anything that interests you and your children!

Please continue to listen to your children read and making any notes in their reading journals, as well as the sight words, letter formation and any spellings practise (if they have them!)

In maths this week we have been looking at odd and even numbers. Even Stephen likes numbers 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8. Odd Todd likes 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9. We discussed how we can tell any number is odd or even by looking at the last digit, the ones. You may want to practise with sorting a range of numbers into hoops and timing the children to see how quick they can get!  Another, especially for reception to support 1:1 correspondence and counting accurately touching each item would be to use objects to count, write down to practise letter formation then think about if it’s an even Stephen or odd Todd. You could also do a number hunt! We have also been practising our 5 times table (Y1).

In English we have started our first week of Beegu. The children are LOVING this book and we have had some fantastic writing and book talk around it. This week we have been focusing on Beegu’s feelings. You could write a postcard or letter to mum about how she is feeling, a newspaper article about a ‘little yellow thing’ that has appeared on Earth, year one some receptions have been practising using adjectives in their writing! The children could research and create a fact file on Niel Armstrong or find out facts about Tim Peake through reading, watching videos etc as we are focusing on him next week in topic.

For more crafty activities you could create your own Beegu, build a spaceship that Beegu travelled to Earth in and crashed, Niel Armstrong’s Apollo 11 that he flew in to the moon. (All of these would also look fantastic on our new Beegu display with our planets!) 

The children have also really enjoyed learning our new song (which we wanted to share in celebration assembly but the internet didn’t want us to!) I have attached YouTube link if you wish to have a singalong!

Have a lovely weekend 🙂🐝
