Year 2 w/e 13.12.19

What a great start to our Christmas celebrations! I am sure you will agree the children did a fantastic job in their concerts- learning all of their lines, songs and dance routines. A big thank you for all your support in learning their lines with them and also for providing such fantastic costumes. 

We have the whole school pantomime on Tuesday 17th so please make sure your child has a packed lunch for that day. 

Our Christmas party is the afternoon of the 18th so please bring party clothes in a bag to change into.

Next week we will be looking at instructional writing. Please show your child some examples and talk about the features/ purpose of this text type. They will be writing an instruction text on how to make a snowman. Please also discuss this with them. 

Have a lovely weekend

Year 1 homework blog

Good morning,

 

This week we are looking at the names and important properties of 3d shapes. The children are currently exploring how we use each shape in our daily lives and are busy crafting their own Christmas versions.

 

In English we have explored the Christmas story and shall be writing our own Christmas letters to Santa.

 

Thank you for the support you have shown the Children during today’s nativity. It means a lot to the children and is the perfect reward for all their hard work. It was also wonderful to hear the kind comments from some of you after todays play.

 

Just a reminder you can take your child after the Christmas nativity tomorrow from the usual pick up point.

 

Next week is a busy one. We have the panto on Tuesday and FP party on Wednesday afternoon. They will need to bring party clothes with them on Wednesday to get changed into.

 

Kind regards,

 

The year 1 team

Year 1 homework

Good morning,

 

We have looked at finding the difference in maths this week and it would be great if you continue that at home to cement understanding with the children. One suggestion would be for them to make their own number line in chalk and jump between the two numbers, the number of jumps=the difference (You could also get them to build two towers and compare the difference in number of bricks.) . You find the difference between two numbers by starting from one number and counting to the other (so the difference between 8 and 3 is 5 because you count on or back 5 times to get to that number). If they are confident in finding the difference you can stretch their understanding by adding or taking away a set amount from both numbers and seeing if the difference changes. (8-3=5 and 9-4=5)

 

Understanding about the difference between numbers and knowing when it does or doesn’t change is a useful skill to master because they can use it to manipulate subtraction sums to make it easier for themselves. IE changing a tricky bridging sum like 13-7 to 16-10 by adding 3 to both numbers.

 

One final request. We will be using paper mache to explore 3d shapes in the final weeks so if you have any spare unwanted newspaper could you bring it into the class.

 

Kind regards,

 

The year 1 team.
