Maths Homework

This week in maths we have been learning about weight and mass. On Seesaw I have uploaded the following worksheet for you to have a go at!

English

Next week we are going to be having a big push on punctuation, therefore I want us to have a little practice with full stops. Once again on Seesaw I will be posting the following activity:

Q6 asks you to write the sentence correctly on the line. I am more than happy for you to ask your child to write the sentence on a separate piece of paper and then for you to upload it to Seesaw.

Have a great weekend!

Homework – 29th April

Welcome Back! | Pears Family School

Good Evening Class 1,

I hope I find you well on this glorious sunny afternoon! What an amazing first week of the summer term, the children have worked extremely hard and should be rightly proud of themselves. Hopefully the class 1 newsletter has found its way to you this week with email. Just a quick reminder of two items on the newsletter; hats and sun protection. As we move through the summer term we will be spending more time outside and it is paramount that the children have a suitable hat in school to wear when we go outside. Additionally, you may wish to apply sun protection prior to school, when we are expecting particularly sunny days, as in previous years you can send sun protection into school so long as your child is able to apply it and that the container is labelled.

Homework – 1st April

Good Afternoon Class 1,

Congratulations on another fantastic week in year 1, I can’t believe that we only have one week left of the Spring term!

Maths

In your book bag you have a login for Times Tables Rock stars. Over the next week I would like you to login in and have a go at practicing your times tables. Remember children, the questions that you receive are generated by the website based upon the answers you provide and the speed of your correct answers.

Note for parents:

I have introduced the children to times table rock stars today, we have completed the initial assessment. At this initial stage I would advise that they only access garage mode. Within garage mode the website will generate suitable questions for the children to answers based upon their responses, for example the more confident they become the harder the questions will become. To begin with, the majority of the class will receive questions based around 1×10 through to 4 x10. We have spent time in school discussing multiplication, although we are in the infancy of this.

For your maths homework for this week, I would really like you to have a go at this really cool game! You will need an adult to set it up for you.

Notes for adults; select no higher than up to 20 on the range and choose a starting point that your child feels comfortable with. If it’s too easy come out of the game and add more challenge, if too hard come out of the game and remove challenge.

Science and Maths: Seed Planting

The children are very excited to get started on planting their sunflower seeds.

This year for science week our theme is growth. Therefore the children will be measuring growth by growing sunflowers (although we are aware that it’s going to take a few weeks), we will observing them closely using our Science and Maths skills.

We are starting our seeds off in small pots covered by cling film. Once the sunflowers seedlings are big enough they will spend a few hours outside each day. Next, when the sunflowers have got used to the outside temperature and all chances of over night frost have passed we will plant the sunflowers in the bee garden.

Homework 11th February

Good Morning Class 1,

This week for our homework, we are going to try something a little bit different. Yesterday, I was on an English course in the afternoon and as part of the course we looked at; Talk for Writing. I thought that this could be something that we could have a go at!

Notes for Parents:

What is talk for write?

Brief summary: Writing improves when children have an opportunity to talk about it. They have the chance to collect vocabulary, rehearse the structure of sentences and refine ideas before they start the writing process.

For homework this week I will provide the children with a sentence and then ask them to improve part of it. For example:

Task: Can you improve the opening of this sentence?

I went to Tesco.

Example answer:

On Saturday, I went to Tesco.

I was very hungry so I went to do the shopping at Tesco.

We needed some party treats, so I went to Tesco.


To complete the activity the children should go through the following stages:

For example, if you read the starting sentence to the children and allow them think about how they could improve the sentence. Next. ask them to say the sentence to you and see if the sentence makes sense. Repeat the child’s sentence back to the child and then ask them to repeat it back to you. The child should then write the sentence down, encourage the child to read the sentence back to you as it appears on the page. You should then read the sentence and ask the child if it makes sense and if it could be improved. After the child has improved the sentence, one final check should take place.

I hope this all makes sense!

As well as sending out Talk for write activities as part of homework we will also be completing similar activities in school.

Submitting work: Please could you take images of your child’s writing/record videos of your child saying the sentence and upload onto Seesaw?

Sentences for this week:

Can you improve this sentence?

Jack made a cake.

Can you improve the start of this sentence?

I went to the beach

Can you improve this sentence?

I wnet to eth shpo for sum cakes.

Phonics

On Purplemash I have set the children a spelling game to complete. To complete the activity, I would read through the word with your child, sound it out and then let them have a go at spelling the word.

Reading Challenge

Miss Northen has set us the challenge of beating Class 2 with our number of reads over the course of the coming week. Therefore Class 1, it is really, really important that we log down all of our reading in our home reading logs. This past week in Class 2 a child managed to read an amazing 4 times, but I think we can beat that easily!

I’ve also been looking at Class 2’s Seesaw account and noticed that some of the children have been uploading videos of themselves reading with an adult at home, Miss Northen and I, would love to see the children in Class 1 also enjoying their reading at home. Therefore, if you would like to you could upload examples of you reading at home to Seesaw.

Homework 3.2.22

Good Morning Class 1!

I hope you are all well?

English

This week we will be approaching our homework slightly differently. Inside your book bag you have a writing activity to complete:

Tips for adults at home:

It may be useful to talk through your child’s ideas first before they get started so that they are not overwhelmed. I would break the task down into the individual questions.

Maths

In addition to your English homework; I would like you to continue practicing your addition skills using the following website, simply scan the QR code with a tablet or mobile phone:

Notes for adults at home: Challenge the children to work on the red robot.

Homework 27th January

Good Afternoon Class 1!

I hope you are all well!

This week for your homework, you will need to log onto Purple Mash (if you struggle to get on, please let me know and I will show you at school and send home your login details again).

I have set you 3 maths games to have a go at; that all link to the work that we have completed this week in school. Also, I have set you a phonics activity.

You might want to show your adult at home the work that we have been doing in our IT lessons to, maybe teach your adults how to code 🙂

As always you have until next Wednesday to submit your work.

Thank you,

Mr Mallison
