In English we have been looking at nouns and verbs.

We focus on nouns being either a person, place or thing.

Have a play with fruit splat addition! Remember to put the first number in your head, and then count on with your fingers (up to 10). Practise your addition skills on level 1 as this includes numbers up to 10. Level 2 uses addition with numbers over 10 if you would like a challenge or you could see how fast you answer the questions against the timer. Can you improve on your score each time?

10 minutes

This week we have been working on addition sentences.

Preparation

Next week is Anti-Bullying Week in school and we will be focussing on kindness. In preparation, I would love the children to think about kindness and what kindness is. How do we show other people kindness? How has someone shown us kindness in the past? This can be either in school or at home.

 

It would be lovely if the children could draw a picture of someone being kind to them or of them showing kindness to someone else so we can talk about these in school next week.

 

Up to 20 mins

Next week we will be focussing on kindness for Anti-Bullying Week.

Preparation

In geography, we have started to look at the weather and how the weather changes during the different seasons. The children have all brought home a weather record activity sheet to complete. They need to observe the weather at different times of the day and draw a picture to represent the weather at that time in the corresponding box. We will then use these records in our future geography lessons.

 

Approx. 5 mins a day

In geography we are looking at the weather.

Play the ‘Maths Lines’ game; select the number 10, start and fire the balls that make a number bond to 10. Try different numbers after that if you would like a challenge!

https://www.abcya.com/games/math_lines_addition

 

Please note this website only works subscription free via a desktop/laptop computer. If accessing via a tablet/mobile then it will ask for you to sign up; please do not pay for the subscription.

If desktop/laptop access is not possible please do not worry, children can access the ‘hit the button’ website where they can also practise number bonds to 10.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Either game is perfect for the children to practise these skills.

 

5 Minutes

Fluently recalling, and using number bonds is one of the foundations of Year 1 Maths.

This week we’ve been learning the story of Monkey See, Monkey Do as part of ‘Talk For Writing’. We’ve learnt special actions for key words to help us to remember the story. Next week we are going to perform the story in groups to the class.

Preparation

Go on an autumn walk – why do you think it is autumn? What signs can you see that tell you we are now in autumn?

If you can, take a bag and collect some things that remind you of autumn; conkers, leaves etc. and bring them into school for us to look at.

30 Minutes

We will soon be starting to look at the seasons in more detail and identifying signs of each season.

Being Independent

Practice taking your coat off carefully in order that the sleeves do not turn inside out. This is tricky when you come to put your coat on again and so takes time away from playtime.

When you have mastered this skill can you practice zipping your coat up yourself? Or can you practice putting on your gloves yourself?

We are learning to be more independent and get ourselves ready for outside play.

In your home learning books, can you find out an interesting fact or two about Neil Armstrong and write some sentences about what you have found out? Don’t forget to use a full stop where needed in your sentences.
