Homework 17th June

I just wanted to start by saying how impressed I have been with homework submitted in the past couple of weeks. The content and explanations have been superb!

In maths this week the children have completed a mix of both multiplication and division. All of the children should be super proud of all of their achievements. For their homework I have uploaded a division activity to Seesaw.

In our English sessions we have explored imperative verbs in preparation for writing instructions. Therefore for homework this week I have uploaded a verb activity to Seesaw.

Furthermore, to support learning of multiplication children, don’t forget to check out the games on:

Have a great weekend!!!!!

Homework 10th June

Good Afternoon Class 1,

Oh my gosh, I cannot believe that we are now in the second half of the summer term! It only feels like yesterday that you were all starting your first half-term with me.

This week you have all worked really hard, particularly in Maths and English. Adults at home – the children have worked on plurals in English (leading into our work on writing instructions) and multiplication in maths. Some of us, found a few of the activities a little bit tricky, therefore I thought it would be a really good idea to have a practice at both of these skills as part of this weeks homework.

Both, the Maths and English tasks have been uploaded to Seesaw.

Submission: 17th June.

Furthermore, to support learning of multiplication children, don’t forget to check out the games on:

Next week for our homework will see a return to utilising the principles of talk for write.

Have a great weekend!!!!!

This week, we’ve had a really big push on full stops as well as first person pronouns. Although we could do with a bit of a recap on word classes. Therefore, over the next few weeks I’m going to be posting activities linked to word classes onto Seesaw.

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.

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.
