Year 1 Preview Learning Archive


11 October 2021

In Maths this week we will be focussing on adding two small numbers. We will be using lots of different methods to show addition, including the part part whole model and bar charts. We will also start to look at number bonds to 10.  

If you would like to practice at home what we have been learning about in school, then please use the workbook on the WhiteRose Maths website  https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Y1-HL-Autumn-Block-2-Addition-and-subtraction-within-10-2020.pdf This supports the Addition and Subtraction unit I will be teaching over the next few weeks, so please do not feel this has to be completed all in one go. A few pages each week following the information in this Learning Preview will be fine.  If you require a printed version please let me know.

 

In our English lessons we will be looking at the past tense and adding –ed to a word (where there is no change to the spelling of the root word). We will be thinking of sentences using these words, and writing them using our phonic knowledge and Common Exception Words.  

Well done to all of the children that have written out book reviews. I have entered them into the competition to win a book token.

 

The children went to the school library on Tuesday and all chose a library book to enjoy at home. On Tuesdays please can they bring their book back into school so it can be swapped for a new one.

 

In Phonics we will be looking at different ways to make the sound oo (oo and ew) and ow (ow and ou)

In Topic/DT we are continuing to build our castles following our design.

Many thanks for your continued support,

In Maths this week we will be moving onto addition and subtraction. We will be using the part-part whole model as a simple pictorial representation of the relationships between numbers. We will be doing this practically using objects and then will begin to record this using numbers.

 

If you would like to practice at home what we have been learning about in school, then please use the workbook on the WhiteRose Maths website  https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Y1-HL-Autumn-Block-2-Addition-and-subtraction-within-10-2020.pdf This supports the Addition and Subtraction unit I will be teaching over the next few weeks, so please do not feel this has to be completed all in one go. A few pages each week following the information in this Learning Preview will be fine.  If you require a printed version please let me know.

In our English lessons we will be focussing on sentence structure. We will use pictures to think of and write our own sentences, using capital letters and full stops.

We will also be looking at adding the prefix ‘un’ to words to change their meaning, and will be writing sentences using these words. Our Common Exception words this week are be, he, me, she and we.

 

In Phonics we will be looking at two ways to make the sound oa (oa and ow) and ue (ue and ew)

In Topic/DT we are going to start building our castles following our design.

In Maths this week we will be continuing to focus on the value of number.

We will be comparing numbers to determine which number is greater than or less than the other, and we will introduce the mathematical signs of <, > and =. We will then move on to ordering three or more numbers from smallest to greatest, and greatest to smallest.

 

In our English lessons we will be continuing to write up our changes to The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We will be looking at sentence structure, and trying to develop a ‘have a go attitude’ with the children when they are writing new and unfamiliar words. We will also write a book review for The Very Hungry Caterpillar. As you may have seen from the Newsletter we are encouraging the children to do this when they have finished a book. If you would like your child to do this at home when they have finished a story, the book review template that we will use is on the Year 1 page on the school website.

In Phonics we will be looking at two ways to make the sound ee (ee and ea) and igh (igh and ie)

In our Topic work we will be learning about how castles were designed, and looking at famous British castles.

For DT we will then begin to design our own castle we would like to make.

In Maths we are continuing to focus on place value. This will include finding one less than a number, and comparing numbers using the vocabulary greater than, less than and equal to.

A few pages each week following the information in this Learning Preview will be fine.

In our English lessons we will be looking at the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We will make our own changes to the middle of the story, and then write these up as simple sentences, using our phonic knowledge and trying our best to remember finger spaces and full stops!

In Phonics we will be looking at two ways to make the sound ai (ai and ay) and oi (oi and oy) A big well done to all of the children that are completing the phonics sheets at home. This will really help the children to learn the sounds.

In our Topic work we will be learning about the Queen’s Coronation.
