Class 1 Homework Challenges 08.03.19

Date: 8th Mar 2019 @ 1:44pm

This week we have been very busy and really enjoyed World Book day on Thursday! The children loved bringing in their cosy things and cuddling up with a book with a friend or listening to one of the many teachers or volunteers read to them. Please continue to read with your child, completing their reading records and practise their spellings (if they have them) and any sight words (: It is one of the best possible ways to support your children's progress reading.

In English we have been carrying on with week 2 of Beegu. We have created and wrote about a new friend for Beegu in the style of Alex.T.Smith who writes the Claude the dog books.

This is Beegu.

Beegu is a yellow alien.

Beegu is a yellow, tiny alien.

Beegu is a yellow, tiny alien who is lost and doesn’t know how to get home.

We have also been practising our use of capital letters for the beginning of sentences, names and places (proper nouns) in SPAG. The children may want to spend more time creating their friend for Beegu in any way they wish at home, labelling them with it's key characteristics or writing about them. They may also want to write a description of themselves or someone they know in the same style, thinking of and using adjectives as we have been practising. They could also test them with some trick sentences to correct with capital letters, no finger spaces or full stops.

In maths, reception have really enjoyed looking at, using and creating their own tallies. There is a huge amount of things you could complete a tally on, cars passing, objects in the house, different types of trees on a walk, food in the supermarket, a questionnaire style for family...

Year one have been practising their number bonds again this week, especially those to 10 and today we looked at bonds to 20. Teen numbers are still a little tricky for some children, understanding it 1 ten first then the number of ones. For children confident with teen numbers, place value of higher numbers up to 100 wold support their maths as place value is a crucial part of their understanding in other areas. Number formation can be done in any way the children enjoy, bubbles and water, mud, sand, salt, painting, any messy play.

Next week is Science week and we have a Design Technology day next Thursday too! If your children have any ideas or particular interests of things they would like to do please let me know and I will try and plan it in for the Busy Bees!

Some children may have had phonics work sent home with them this week, this is up to you to complete if you wish, we have started to send them home as an addition after noticing gaps in our daily phonics sessions.

Have a lovely weekend everyone! (:
