Year 1

Update W/B : 21/1/19

English and Maths information:

In English this week we will move on from looking at suffixes to look at prefixes. Prefixes are added to the beginning of a ‘root’ word to change its meaning. So for example ‘fair’ is a root word and you can add the prefix ‘un’ so it becomes ‘unfair’. When reading with your children if you can encourage them to point out any suffixes and prefixes this will support them in consolidating their learning.

In Maths this week we will continue to use our science experiments to support us with our maths learning. The main features of the week will be looking at measurements and counting reliable with numbers to 100.

Signpost to homework on MyMaths

I have set a number of tasks for the children to complete on the MyMaths portal. A letter with their log in details was sent home on Thursday 13th September. This learning is to be completed over the course of this half term, you have until the 24th February 2019. The tasks that have been set link with some of the areas that we will be covering in school.

General Information:

We are continuing to collect resources for our new project, ‘Hubble Bubble, Chemical Blasters!’, which is science based. If you can collect any large plastic bottles (2 litre), any other empty plastic bottles (any size), corks, empty jars and any food colouring that might be spare that would be amazing! Thank you for all your support.

For this half term Year 1 will be doing PE on a Monday and a Thursday. This is because we have an outside coach coming in to support PE within school and for this half term Year 1 have the pleasure.


Best wishes,

Year 1 Team
