Year 1

Thank you to those that completed the homework, the maps were lovely to see.

 

I am aware that some people are unsure of how the children should be dressed for the play. The theme is recycled clothing so I would suggest they wear something from a family member. Some children are sporting old t-shirts that have the recycled emblem on them as well, which look fantastic.

 

We are adopting Kung Fu punctuation into our classroom as a trail. The purpose is to make teaching basic punctuation, dare I say a potentially dry topic, more accessible.

They have had a taster today with full stops, ellipsis, commas and full stops. As homework it would be wonderful if the children research their own fighting moves for the other forms of punctuation. I would suggest going on YouTube as there are a range of different videos showcasing this technique.

 

We have looked at adding 3 numbers together in maths, rehearsing for our play continues and the children have been making music that fits certain moods.

 

Just so parents are aware the children shall be stuck with me on Monday-Thursday, apart from Tuesday morning. The children do have a break on Friday when Mrs Fawsitt shall be teaching.

Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend and see you all on Monday for the class assembly.

 

Kind regards,

The year 1 team.

Year 1 homework blog

First of all I wish to say a big congratulations to all those that took part in Trellech's got talent yesterday. It was clear that the children must of worked incredibly hard and they were all fantastic.

 

In lessons this week we have looked at using compass directions, which will lead to following and creating their own maps. As such for homework could they create a local "map" showing any features such as rivers, churches etc. This could be on graph paper or why not get creative and create a giant outdoor map using sticks, ribbon, clothes and any other materials. The children could take a photo and email it to the school.

 

We have also prepared for our school assembly, studied the Pesach festival and looked at measuring time.

 

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend,

 

The year 1 team.

Year 4 Home Learning- Miss Morris and Mrs Phillips W/E 10.5.19


Its been a busy week with only four days, tests, assembly rehearsals etc.


Maths-

Finding the difference between two numbers, we looked at different ways of reaching an answer. For example, the difference between 4 and 15. We looked at counting on, subtracting and using multiples of 10 to help with jumping on. For example. the jump from 4 to 10 is 6, then from 10 to 15 is 5, so  6 add 5 is 11. Alternatively, they might have added from 4 to 14, then added 1.


Try some- 8 and 15, 34 and 18, 61 and 76, 127 and 155 etc.


Literacy- using speech marks. We looked at the rules associated with speech, e.g capital letter to begin, speech marks around the words being spoken, a new line for a new speaker etc.

Have a go at writing out a passage of speech between you at home about something you have talked about.


 "Go and get your swimming bag please," called Mum from downstairs,

"Coming," shouted….

"Hurry up we are late." Etc


Science- We have begun a mini-project designing a 'Moon Hotel.' We started to look at what it is like on the moon and what the guests will require etc. We used the following headings to help us plan, How to get there, the hotel itself, food and drink, activities. They could carry on with some planning for this.



Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Phillips
