This week we started learning some songs for our Christmas performance. This will be some songs from one of our plays put together as a KS1 Christmas film. This involves singing outside and keeping within our bubbles! When complete a link will be sent to you. If you would rather that your child was not in this film please let us know.
In English, we have been continuing our work on ‘The Tiger Child’ and have been looking at questions. We have discussed how these are different to statements and have been busy asking each other questions when we’re in character, practicing question marks and writing our own questions! The children have also been securing their understanding of verbs (past tense) and how to use these in their writing.
In Maths, we have moved onto to our new block of work: Place Value to 20. We have been identifying and writing numbers to 20 (in numbers and words) and have used visual representations to understand tens and ones. Using our knowledge of numbers to 10, we have also been identifying one more and one less to 20. The children have been practicing their reasoning skills when explaining what they notice and the patterns they can see.
In DT, the children have started looking at the materials they will need to make their fire engines and why that material will be suitable. For example, we discussed using pipecleaners for the hose as they are easy to wrap around a cardboard tube. We also talked about using strong cardboard for the chassis so it would stay intact and sturdy.
Keep up with the Oxford Owl reading, as well as reading other texts.
Please remember to write in your child’s reading diary when you hear them read.
Year 1 are looking at Phase 4 phonics:
This week’s Oxford Owl focus: Phase 4 Set 12 ‘No tricks gran’
Phase 4 Set 12 ‘Cat’s painting’
We hope that you have a relaxing weekend.
