Thank you for supporting your child in bringing in their homework book today. We will send these books home again on Thursday. Please take a moment with your child to look through any feedback that may have been given. Comments and/or things to practise will be highlighted by a green arrow -->
We can now use homework books to complete weekly homework. These should be used to complete all of the homework, unless otherwise stated on the homework task, and should be returned to school each Monday. If homework books are returned to school later than Monday each week, they may not be marked due to quarantine of the books before they are sent home each Thursday. It is the childrens' responsibility to hand in their homework books, as teachers and teaching assistants will not be going through book bags to locate them! Please give gentle reminders to your child/children on Monday morning to hand them in. Thank you for your continued support.
In Maths, we have done some subtraction (taking away). We would like you to complete the 5 questions below by drawing the circles and crossing some out as we practised at school.
e.g. 5-3 = 2
Draw 5 circles and then cross 3 of them out. Count how many are left.
6 - 2 =
8 - 3 =
7 - 7 =
5 - 4 =
9 - 5 =
This week, we would like you to either print or draw the alien above and then read the sentences below to help you colour it in!
My left hand is green and my right hand is red.
I have a blue hat.
My ears are yellow and so are the stars.
My feet are pink.
I have an orange body.
I have three eyes that are light green.
We would like the children to go on a shape hunt around their home and garden in preparation for our learning about 2D shape.
We would like everyone to find the following:
3 objects that are circles;
3 objects that are squares;
3 objects that are oblongs;
and 3 objects that are triangles.
Have a look at how many sides and corners the shapes have.
Knowing our tricky words help our fluency when we read.
Please learn to read the tricky words below to support reading.
I, no, the, to, go, into (Phase 2)
he, she we, me, be, you, are, her, was, all, they, my (Phase 3)
If your child is confident reading these words, they could try spelling them correctly in sentences.
1 more and 1 less revision - please see the sheet below. You can either print the sheet and complete it, view it on screen and complete the activity in your homework book, or complete it practically using the number cards to 20 that you made last week.
We would like everyone to practise writing their capital letters this week. Below is a sheet showing how to form the capital letters.
You may print and write on the sheet or write in your homework book. There is also a link to an Alphabet Song. We would like children to learn the song and be able to name the letters of the alphabet.
Maths: '1 less'
Please make a set of 1-20 digit cards with your child. These need to be hand written and can be on small pieces of paper. Please watch number formation as your child writes the numbers. SAVE THESE CARDS FOR FUTURE USE.
Shuffle the cards and put them face down in a pile. Take turns picking a card, look at the number, read it and then say what '1 less' than the number shown is. E.g. If a 7 is turned over, your child should say '6'. If this is too tricky for now, only use the numbers
1-10 and put the others cards to one side for now.
Please support your child in reading the following sentences:
The boy had a hat that was too tight.
This long letter is for my sister.
A green car went fast.
Ask them to find the word that has the 'igh' sound in it, the word that contains the 'ar' sound and the word (or two) that contain the 'er' sound. As an extension task, you my like your child to write out the sentences and underline the words that contain those sounds.
We have been working on finding '1 more' than a group of objects this week.
Please make groups of objects and record the number just like last week and then make the group have '1 more'. Write down the new number of objects and ask your child what they notice. They may say that the number has gone up one, added 1 or that it's the next number, all of which are responses we would be happy with!
Write out the sentences below adding a full stop and a capital letter in the correct place.
my dog has black spots
i have a yellow car
This week, we have been looking at accurate counting in Maths and number formation.
Please support your child in making groups of objects from 1 to 10 and then labelling the groups with the correct digit. e.g. Make a group of 6 spoons and write underneath the number 6.
We have looked at the digraphs 'sh' and 'ch' this week. Practise the two sounds out loud with your child and find some objects around the house that start with these sounds.
