The children should have received their pass for ‘Times Tables Rockstar’ today for them to access it from home. They should also have a ‘Purple Mash’ login and a ‘Lexia’ login inside their homework book. We would encourage the children to access this software at home however this is not a necessity unless linked to specific homework set. We hope the children enjoy accessing these programs from home. Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you for your continued support, The Year 1 Team.
This week has been very exciting already and we can’t wait to continue our Moon Zoom topic. We have planned and designed our own spaceship or rocket ready to make it next week during our DT lesson. In order to do this we need lots of junk modelling resources such as kitchen roll holders, plastic bottles, pringles tubes or any other cylinder shaped materials. We are also looking for materials that we could put together to create a UFO shape eg. two paper/plastic bowls stuck together. If you any of these materials at home please can you send them in ready for next week. (We can’t accept toilet roll holders!)

We hope you’ve had a fantastic half term and are ready to get back to Year 1 for our new topic – Moon Zoom. We look forward to seeing you in the morning…but watch out on that playground. I think I might have just heard a loud crashing sound!
Just a note to share some of our intended learning for the second part of the Autumn term for English and Maths. This was a frequently asked question at parents evening so we thought it best to share this for the benefit of all parents and children as things you could practise with your child over the coming half term and when we are back at school.
English – Writing:
– writing in clauses which make sense
– re-reading writing to check it makes sense
– using a big capital letter to start a sentence
– spelling key words correctly
– spelling unfamiliar words using the sounds we know
English – Reading:
– re-reading texts to increase fluency
– recognising action words and common non-decodable words
– using sounds they know to sound out and blend unfamiliar words
– making predictions
– inferring from the text and sharing opinions
– continue learning on addition and subtraction
– 2D and 3D shapes
– counting (forwards, backwards, ordering, place value, comparing
Enjoy your half term and we look forward to seeing the children back rested and re-charged ready for our next topic – Moon Zoom.
Thank you for your continued support and for your time at parents evening. It was lovely to spend a bit of time talking about your child’s progress and their next steps.
