Hello Year 1 for the last time this half term.
You have been busy again today I see.
Thank you so very much for everything you have done since the closure of school. I makes it much more rewarding when you do the work that is set for you and I can see you all being busy with your families.
Today, please take some quiet time to enjoy the Read Around just like we would do in school. It really is lovely and will make you all feel more like Easter, which is the most important time in the Church year. You will feel closer to everyone, I know I did when I listened to it.
Your activities today obviously include Joe and being outside in the fresh air. Take some reading outside if you can do I saw some people doing maths outdoors today.
First I would like you to play more maths games please. The instructions are here:
Number Bonds to 10
This activity will help your child with recalling the number bonds for numbers up to 10.
Important words and phrases:
You will need:
What to do:
Use everyday opportunities to practise number bonds to 10 with your child. For example:
Look out for:
“How many beads are there altogether?” encourage your child to answer using the format
“There are 5 beads altogether.”
Next I would like you to practise some phonics please. Look at your Year 1 and 2 common exception word sheets please.
Please read through the Year 1 list with your Grown up. Keep trying as I know you can do it. If you can read the Year 1 words then please move to the Year 2 words. Write them out, or as many as you can do without looking at them. Please try to read them more than once during the day to see if you become more fluent whilst reading. Record your scores to see if you get better each time. If you can read them all then write them more than once and track your scores. Let me know what your scores are!
I would then like you to continue on our Easter art Theme please. I would like you to create a cross and colour it in or fill it with words or use 3D equipment to create your cross or collage your cross. It is up to you and your very creative grown ups. Please send me pictures of them via email and I will create an Easter collage of all your creations on our page.
Thank you Year 1 and a very special thank you to your Grown Up helpers. You all need to say an enormous thank you to them too because they have guided you through your work over the last couple of weeks whilst many have been busy with their own work too.
I look forward to seeing your work today.
Have a super Easter family time. See you soon.
Mrs Glynn and I miss you all and love to see your photos,
Love Mrs Clough
