Please see below for an outline of the planning, skills and activities that will be taught in Year 1 this week.

If you need support with curriculum learning, please see Year Group Blogs - Year 1 - Knowledge Organisers for more information. 

 

Maths

We are continuing to make teen numbers using diennes this week. We have been using a part-part-whole model to represent these numbers.

 

 

We are continuing to reinforce what each digit represents in a number e.g. 12 = 1 ten and 2 ones.

12 = 10 + 2

 

English

In English this week we have been looking at nouns and verbs.

Nouns: person, place, animal or thing

Verbs: an action/doing word.

 

Sort the words into nouns or verbs:

 

​​​​​​​We have also been looking at suffixes. A suffix is a string of letters that go at the end of a root word to change or add to its meaning.

When we add the suffix -ing to a word it changes its meaning. Add -ing to the following words:

walk, talk, jump, flick, punch, pull

 

Now use these words in a sentence.

 

Phonics

Children have been practising reading blends this week. Read the following words using your 'phonics hands'.

 

bend, mend, gift, soft, tent, pond

spoon, track, speck, start, float, train

trust, spent, stand, slept, print, blots

scrunch, streets, string, spring, shrink

 

Encourage your child to use their hands to sound out words - moving their hands out as they sound out each phoneme (letter/sound)

Week beginning 2nd November

Please see below for an outline of the planning, skills and activities that will be taught in Year 1 this week.

 

Maths

We are revisiting addition and subtractions from last half term in our daily 5 a day. Children will continue to use the picture method to solve calculations 

 

3+2=5

000+00=5

 

5-3=2

00000 (cross three out)

 

We are making teen numbers using a variety of objects such as ten frames, multilink, counters and Numicon. Children are starting to discuss what each digit represents in a number e.g. 12 = 1 ten and 2 ones.

The game above shows children some numbers represented by dienes - we will be concentrating on numbers up to 20.

 

We are also practising counting backwards and looking at the vocabulary '1 more and 1 less'.

Literacy

In Literacy this week, we are continuing to practise our sentence writing. Last week, we learnt about capital letters and full stops. Encourage your child to say the sentence allowed, count the words, write and then check.

 

We are revisiting capital letters and making sure that we form all our letters correctly. It would be interesting for you to watch your child form their letters to ensure that you can address any mistakes, the earlier the better!

Phonics

Children are revising phase 3 and phase 4 sounds this week. Phonics play is no longer offering a free trial but there are still some games available for free for parents.

Encourage your child to use their hands to sound out words - moving their hands out as they sound out each phoneme (letter/sound)
