Year 1 Homework - Due Tuesday 25th February

Phonics - We have been working very hard learning our Phase 5 Sounds. The children have been asked to go on a Phase 5 Sound Hunt, looking for words containing some of these sounds. Don’t forget to write them down, using your sound buttons to show the graphemes you have found. 

 Challenge - Can the children define what the words mean or even use them in a sentence? 

Science - In Year 1 we have been learning all about parts of the body and their functions for both humans and animals. The children have been asked to design a new animal, labelling parts of its body and explaining why each part is important (e.g. wings to fly away from predators). 

Maths - The children have been set a variety of activities on so they can keep practicing the topics that they have been learning in Maths lessons. 

Reading - We have now been able to set up a log in so the children can access the ebooks on our new reading scheme website - Please explore our new online books and have a go at the comprehension activity at the end of each book. You will be able to find our child’s login details at the front of their homework book.

Autumn learning in Year 1

We have lots of exciting activities and new learning to discover in Year 1 this half term. Not forgetting, we will be practicing for our Christmas play "Born this Night". 


Maths - This half term we will be recapping our understanding of numbers to 20, learning to tell the time to the nearest hour and half past the hour and the children will be learning to identify 2D and 3D shapes, as well as being able to describe their properties. 


English - We will be exploring a range of traditional tales this half term in English. The children will be comparing these tales, creating our own alternative endings and creating our own tales in a similar style. 


Science - 'Materials' is our focus for  this half term's Science topic. In year 1 we will be identifying the features of materials, comparing different materials and their properties and discussing their uses. 


RE - We begin this half term with our prayer unit. The children will be exploring different prayers and the reasons of why we might say them. After we will move onto our Advent unit where we begin to think about what we are preparing for during Advent and why it is so important
