Summer 2 Home Learning w/c: 29 June 2020

Hello again everybody! 
It has been lovely seeing some familiar faces in school these last 2 weeks. We are working them hard at school delivering the same lessons that are on the website for you to complete.
 
This time is super important time at school as we want to make sure you are ready for year 2. Please don't panic too much about being ready for Year 2 as next year will be a very strange year for us all and Mrs Scott will make sure that she teaches you the skills you need as well as the new curriculum for Year 2 too. We are all in the same boat and we will make sure all children are supported.
 
As ever, there are learning packs available at the school office for you to collect if your printer is feeling a little bit tired from all the printing over the last few months! 
 
Enjoy this weeks learning. :)
 
 
Writing a letter for your new teacher
 
Every time I have seen Mrs Scott she has asked about you all and I thought it would be lovely for you to write her a letter all about yourself. You could tell her: 
- Your name
- How old you are
- Where you live or who you live with
- What you look like ( You could get some adjectives in there to describe yourself)
- What you love doing at home or at school
- What you don't like doing
- Tell her about your pets at home
 
Make sure you draw a lovely picture of yourself too!
 
There are lots of things you can tell her about.
The more information the better! 
I know she will also look at your handwriting, capital letters and full stops.
 
You can send it to me on e-schools/ school office or deliver it to school on your daily walk.
English Tasks

"Barry the Fish with Fingers"
 
Whilst teaching these short lessons in school we have really focused on sentence structure and letter formation too.
 
Although these lessons/activities are short the children will be practising their understanding of the story and will be asked to retrieve information from the story too.

Compound Words
 
This week we would like you to focus on compound words.
You will have used compound words already a lot when you are talking to other people but you may not be aware they are called compound words.
Examples of compound words:
 
starfish     sunlight     football    lighthouse   hairbrush.
 
Above are lots of compound words.
 
A compound words is when two words are put together to make a new word. Can you spot the two words above which make a new word?
 
I'll do the first one for you.
star + fish = starfish.

MATHS
In our maths lessons this week we will be continuing to order numbers but will also be focusing on money.
Here are this weeks objectives:
Monday: Ordering Numbers
Tuesday: Recognising Coins
Wednesday: Recognising Notes
Thursday: Counting in Coins
Friday: Maths Challenge Day
Video clips for each lesson, Monday to Thursday are on the WRMH Home Learning Page for Year 1, week 10.
To help you understand and handle money perhaps you could set up your own little shop at home? If you are hungry and ask your grown up for a snack they could ask you to count out an amount of coins to pay for it? Don't forget to send us any photos of your work from home.

Mental Maths 
Timestables
 
Over the last week I have been working with the children to make sure they are familiar with their 2x 5x and 10x tables.
 
We have:
  • Chanted the timestables
  • Wrote them down on our whiteboards
  • Looked at the pattern on a 100 square grid 
  • Looked at timestables written down ( 1x5 = 5)

  • We discussed how we could work out the answer. 

Example: 3 x 5 = 
 
  • The 3 in the number sentence above tells you how many groups you need.
  • The second number tells you how many to put in the group (or the timestable you are counting up in.
To work this out there are lots of ways to do this:
 
  • Use your fingers to show how many groups you need.
    e.g 3x5 = 
    I would need 3 fingers. I would then count in 5s on each finger going 5,10,15  
  • You you could use a pencil to draw groups of five and circle each group.
  • Use objects to help you put them into groups of 2s/5s/10s
