How are you Year 1?
We hope you have had a good weekend and that you had great fun playing in the snow! What a surprise that was to wake up to white rooftops! Did you go sledging or did you make a snowman?
This week in English, we are continuing with our topic of 'Traditional Tales' and our book this week is 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. As we have been writing with a focus on fiction activities, this week, we are going to try and complete some non-fiction writing. Can you guess which animal in Jack and the Beanstalk we might be writing about?
In Maths we are learning many concepts including: calculations for 10 more and 10 less, sequencing numbers, comparing size and revisiting the concept of doubling. Although some of these concepts are quite tricky, you will be able to use number squares and number lines to help you.
This week we are going to begin our Design Technology focus for 'Food Technology'. You will be learning about where food comes from and the importance of a balanced diet. Maybe you might get the opportunity to do some baking at home...
We know that you are working very hard and as we always say, this work is here as a guide for you. Don't worry if you can't complete it all. This week we would like you to ask your Mummy or Daddy if you can email your Tuesday Maths work and your Tuesday English work to us. We were amazed by the content of your character descriptions last week; well done! We also knew that the 2D repeating patterns were quite tricky and we were very impressed that many of you attempted all the patterns! What a wonderful effort!

Don't forget to watch the Story Time stories and this week there is a non-fiction book to listen to ! Search for the 'Rainbow' and you will find a link to the short story read by Mrs West and also the chapter story read by Mrs Bagley. These are for you to listen to if you would like.
Remember that we are just a phone call away...if you have any questions or you need any help, please get in touch.
Keep working hard Year 1; you are doing so well with Home Learning!
We are missing you so much...
Mrs West and Mrs Bagley
