This week the children really enjoyed tasting different foods and describing what is was like.The children also learned about the importance of maintaining a balanced diet in assembly. Please encourage your child to talk to you about what they learnt in the assembly as they were very enthusiastic when sharing ideas in the classroom.
This week in Maths we completed the topic multiplication and division. Next week we will begin fractions. Please see images below.
If you are able to, please complete some examples of adding different coins together then finding half. Alternatively more practical examples such as splitting food into half or quarters and sharing equally.
In English we started looking at a new book, Freddie and the Fairy by Julia Donaldson and next week we will writing a newspaper report based on what happens in the story. If you have the opportunity please discuss with your child what the features of a newspaper report are.
Please see below some examples of words the children are finding a bit tricky:
haunt, author, Autumn and pause.
cure, sure, picture and and pure.
twice, rice, dice and ice.
We will continue to focus on words with these sounds next week.
The children have been using the year 1 writing checklist to edit their work in order to improve their writing. This includes
full stops and capital letters, finger spaces, describing words and punctuation such as question marks and exclamation marks.
If children complete any writing at home please encourage them to check for the above.
If your child would like to bring in an item for show and tell this will be held weekly on a Friday only. This is a chance to show items of interest such as something they have created, achieved or pictures from a recent trip. We will do our best to share them with the class.
We continue to prepare for the phonics screening which is in June. These words are examples of words used in previous screenings. Whenever you get an opportunity please practice reading these words:
The children have been practicing their cursive writing daily and we are already starting to see improvements. We are now encouraging them to use this in their everyday writing, presenting their work to a high standard.
If you would like any sheets to practice this at home then please write a note in the contact book.
If you read at home with your child please
