Letters

Looking back at last week we wrote a letter to our new Inuit friend Aput.  As you do not have your letter – perhaps you might like to write a letter to him and include who you are, where you are from and things you like to do. Remember to end with a question. Remember the layout of a letter.

Get your parent to check it and perhaps together you could do some editing – look through and see areas you have written some really good thing and where you could improve.

Tuesday

Letters

Using some fancy paper, write your letter out in neat and look at the your editing – remember to use the correct spellings and any new areas you have added in.

Wednesday

Letters

Look at example of letters. We received a letter from Dublin today. It is attached. Have a read through. What does it say? What parts of a letter can you recognise? What information does it give? Can you think of some sentences you might write back to Paddy? Can you use the word and or because in your sentence?

Thursday

Differences and similarities between letters

Look at the similarities of the letters we have been sent. What did they all have? What is different?  Can you think of reasons why we might write a letter? When might we write a thank you card? Can you write a thank you card to a family member and think of why you would like to thank them?

Friday

Thank you cards

Finish off your thank you card or write another to a friend.

D.T.:   We are going to be designing a windmill this week and looking at how we can create our own. Look at the website and see if you can create your own. How to Make Paper Windmill (easy-crafts-for-kids.com)

Science: Last week you made a weather chart or diary for the weather at home. What is the weather like in the Arctic? Have a look at a weather forecast website each day and complete a weather chart or diary for the Arctic this week. What’s the same and what’s different compared to the weather in England?

P.E. CBeebies | Andy's Wild Workouts | Arctic - YouTube

RE: Special people Is there anything you wonder about? Think about some of these questions…

1. How do the special people in your life help you?

2. What makes a person special?

3. How is Jesus like a light for us?

4. How can we love and serve each other?

What could you do to show your appreciation of the special people in school? At home? In the parish family?

ACTIVITY: Make a thank you card for your chosen special person. Include a message on the inside thanking them for all they do.

HOMEWORK - 14TH JANUARY 2022

Happy Friday! 

The children have enjoyed a fabulous week of learning looking at the Arctic and concentrating on letter writing to a new friend, Aput, from the Arctic. They have written their own letters back to him and learnt all about the layout of a letter. Perhaps they may like to write a letter with you to a family member or friend? 

In Maths, we have been learning to use a number line to subtract numbers within 20. Please have a go at the worksheet attached to practise using the numberline. 

Have a great weekend and see you all for another fun filled week of learning.

Topic

Activity

Monday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

Last week, you started planning a letter to Apat, the boy who lives in the Arctic. You drew a picture of yourself and jotted down some facts about yourself.

 

Today we want you to think about the place where you live, it is very different to the Arctic and Apat would really like to hear about it! Your task is to make a list of different things you would see in yo0ur local area, for example:

A pebble beach

Grassy park

Concrete pavement

How many things can you write on your list?

Use your phonics to spell words you don’t know.

 

Tuesday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

Have a look at the list you wrote yesterday and read it to a grown-up. Today your task is to choose three of the things and write a sentence for each one. Try to use some describing words (adjectives). Here is an example:

 

I live in a brick house with a red door.

 

The pebble beach is a good place to ride my bike.

 

You can play football in the grassy park.

 

Wednesday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

 Today we are going to start writing our letters.

 

When we write letters, we always put our address at the top so the person we are writing to knows who it is from and can write back.

Write your own address at the top of the letter, the date, and then write ‘Dear Apat’.

 

Draw a picture of yourself with your family by your home.

 

Thursday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

Now it’s time to tell Apat some things about yourself. Use the ideas you have planned already. Here is an example:

Dear Apat,

Hello, my name is _________ and I am six years old. I have a brother and sister and my dog is called Floppy. I like taking him for walks in the rain and getting all muddy.

Can you write three sentences? Remember to say them out loud before you write them down. Perhaps you can write more than three…

 

Friday

Our topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Writing letters.

Let’s finish your letter today. Now you need to tell Apac about the place you live. Can you use one of the sentences you wrote on Tuesday? Can you think of some new sentences? Can you think of a question you’d like to ask Apac? Here’s an example:

 

I live in England in a town next to the sea. There is a pebble beach where I have picnics in the summer. There is also a long canal with ducks and white swans. What animals do you see where you live?

From __________

 

D.T.: It is interesting to see how an igloo is constructed. Have a look at one or both of these clips. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-x5QOSqP3E  (3 mins) or http://www.nfb.ca/film/how_to_build_an_igloo/ (10mins)

Can you make a model of an igloo? You could use junk modelling, Lego, playdough or clay – whatever you have at home (fingers crossed it snows and you can do it in the garden!) Perhaps you use bedding and blankets to make an igloo style camp!

Geography: Look at Google Earth and find the Arctic. Look at where it is in comparison to England. Can you find any of the other continents you learnt about last week? Here is a song to help you learn the names of the continents!

Seven Continents Song (Oceania Version) - YouTube

Science: Linking to our Geography, make a weather chart or diary. Can you record the temperature each day and what the weather is like?

P.E. :  Follow this link to an Arctic themed yoga session!

RE: Special people We all have special people in our lives. Can you think of who is special in your life? Read this story with an adult.

Joe’s story: Grandma’s special people.

Every Sunday, we go to Grandad and Grandma’s with our Mum for dinner.  Tim and I love going there.  Grandad and Grandma let us play upstairs.  We think it is a very special place. Grandma knows how much we like to look at all the photographs on the stairs, on the landing and in the bedrooms.  There are so many of them.  Tim and I make up games to play.  We count them, try to spot the new ones and see if we can remember who all the people in the photographs are.  Grandma says, “These are all my special people, they are our family.   You are there, as well as your Mum, Uncle Brian and cousins.”

Tim and I are glad we’re Grandma’s special people.  She is one of our special people, too.  Some of the photographs are of people we don’t really know.  There is one of Monica, Grandma’s best friend, who lives in the next road.  They go shopping together every week.  Another is of Sally, the district nurse, who helped to look after Grandad when he was very ill last year.

Tim’s favourite photograph is the one of Grandma and Grandad with all their friends and neighbours.  It was taken at the community centre last year at a party.  Grandma has so many photographs because she has many special friends.  I couldn’t tell you about them all today as it would take too long.  Perhaps you could think of people who are special to you.

  1. Who are special people in your lives?
  2. Are there special people in our school community?
  3. Do you know any other special people?
  • Draw pictures of the special people in your life and add key words which express the special things people offer us: e.g. care, time, love, friendship.  

Phonics:

Use the website ‘phonic play’ to access games and activities to support phonic learning. The username is caritas and the password is caritas.

Key words for your information:

Phoneme - The smallest unit of sound. There are approximately 44 phonemes in English (it depends on different accents). Phonemes can be put together to make words.

Grapheme - A way of writing down a phoneme. Graphemes can be made up from 1 letter e.g. p, 2 letters e.g. sh, 3 letters e.g. tch or 4 letters e.g ough

Digraph - A grapheme containing two letters that makes just one sound (phoneme).

Trigraph - A grapheme containing three letters that makes just one sound (phoneme)

Oral Blending - This involves hearing phonemes and being able to merge them together to make a word. Children need to develop this skill before they will be able to blend written words.

Blending- This involves looking at a written word, looking at each grapheme and using knowledge of GPCs to work out which phoneme each grapheme represents and then merging these phonemes together to make a word. This is the basis of reading

Oral Segmenting - This is the act hearing a whole word and then splitting it up into the phonemes that make it. Children need to develop this skill before they will be able to segment words to spell them.

Segmenting - This involves hearing a word, splitting it up into the phonemes that make it, using knowledge of GPCs to work out which graphemes represent those phonemes and then writing those graphemes down in the right order. This is the basis of spelling.

HOMEWORK - 7TH JANUARY 2022

Welcome back to the New Term. We hope you had a great Christmas break and enjoyed the festive holiday.  The children have returned with great enthusiasm, and we are loving being back with them again.

This week, we are beginning to set spellings which we will give out every Friday. The children will have a week to learn and practise these at home ready for a test on the following Friday. New spellings will be given out each Friday. 

If you wish to have a go at the following SPAG activity as well, feel free to.

Shark Sounds (ictgames.com)

Pick four sounds you want to practise and press the Go button in the shark head. Use the skull in the middle to move to eat the correct sound that travels towards the shark. 

Remember to keep up the reading and log this in the green reading record. Any messages please feel free to write in the record book or email in to the school office and we will try to help in any way.

Many thanks and enjoy the weekend.

Mrs Everitt and Mrs Reid.

Thank-you card or letter

We hope you had a lovely Christmas!

Today, think of a present that you received that was really special. Can you make a thank-you card and inside, write a little message to the person who gave you that present. Alternatively, write a little letter saying why you like the present so much. Make sure your sentences have a capital letter, full stop and word spaces. Don’t forget to post it!

Wednesday

Epiphany

Tomorrow is the feast of Epiphany, the day when the three wise men came to visit Jesus. Watch this video to see what happened.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofFRSwl2XKU

 

Now draw a picture of a nativity scene. Include all these things and label them or write the words underneath – Jesus, Mary, Joseph, star, kings, cow, hen, sheep. The red words all contain sounds we’ve looked at in phonics. Perhaps you can sound them out yourself!

 

Thursday

Our new topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’.

Today in school we will be starting our new topic about the Arctic. Watch this video clip first:

The next clip is interesting too:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umAeFKF2uxA

 

Can you think of any questions you’d like to ask about the Arctic? What would you like to find out about in this topic? Write down three questions, remembering to start each question with a capital letter and end it with a question mark. E.g.

Who lives in the Arctic?

Friday

Our new topic for the term: ‘Posting and Places’. Planning a letter.

Over the next week in school, we will be planning and writing a letter to Apac (the Inuit boy we met in the video yesterday). Today we will be thinking about things we’d like to tell him about ourselves. Draw a picture of yourself and around it, write some of the things you’d like to tell him e.g. your favourite food, hobbies, your family etc.

Spelling list

Practise writing out the spellings listed. Maybe you could write them into sentences.

the, we, mum, get, and, can, one, just

Science: Take a winter walk around your area, garden, or even better, the woods. What has changed since the autumn? What can you see, feel or smell? Do you need to wear different clothes?

Geography: Can you name the 7 continents of the world? Watch this clip, then see how many you can remember. If you have a world map at home – maybe a poster or an atlas, perhaps you could write seven labels for the continents and stick them on. Maybe you could print a world map and colour the continents in different colours.

This week we have been learning all about finding one more and one less than a given number. The children have been getting really good at this and enjoyed playing games on Topmarks - Daily 10 online. If you choose level 1, addition one more, or subtraction one less and let the children challenge themselves.

I have also attached a game you can print out and play at home.

Please continue to practise your phonic sounds at home, particularly air, ure, ur, er.

Have a blessed weekend!

HOME LEARNING - 29TH NOVEMBER 2021

Home Learning for Year 1 – Monday 29th November

Hello to those of you learning from home today! In school this morning we will be doing Maths, English and Phonics, and in the afternoon we will be practising our Christmas play. Below are some tasks for you to complete at home, and we will be doing something very similar in school.

English-

This week our book is ‘Jesus’ Christmas Party’ by Nicholas Allan. You can see it being read by following this link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6TDZgsZgfU

Can you remember the order in which the visitors come to the inn?

Please write five sentences, using the following words to sequence the order in which the visitors arrived:

First

Then

Next

Soon

Last

Here is an example: First Mary and Joseph came to the inn. Remember to start your sentence with a capital letter and end it with a full stop.

Maths –

In school we will be practising counting forwards and backwards to 20. We will also be writing the numbers (the right way round!) and writing the words - i.e. eleven, twelve etc. Please practise writing these at home.

Phonics –

Our sound of the day is ‘er’. Watch the videos first.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvq9bdm/articles/zvmnmfr

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Taa3ANEyN_Y

Try to write these words:

her, river, finger, mixer, farmer, butter, ladder.

We’ll look forward to seeing you soon!

From Mrs Aplin and Mrs Everitt

 

HOMEWORK - 3RD DECEMBER 2021

This week we have finished learning about 2D shapes. The children have had a lot of fun looking at these and classifying them. Please have a go at the worksheet finding the shapes around the house and garden. You can even have a go at the challenge and try to describe the properties of the shapes.

Enjoy your weekend and we look forward to seeing you next week.

Mrs Everitt and Mrs Aplin

WORKSHEET - PLEASE CLICK THE LINK

 

 

HOMEWORK - 26TH NOVEMBER 2021

Dear Parents and Carers

The children have been working hard this week looking at the layout of a letter and how to set it out. We discussed the differences of formal and informal letters and how we sign these off. The children will have written a letter to Santa by the end of the week, and we will be sending these off to Santa himself. 

In Maths, the class have been sorting and classifying 3D and 2D shapes and learning to describe these using the correct terminologies. 

For homework; this week we have been concentrating on 3 sounds - air, ear and ure. Please have a go at the worksheets that focus on these 3 sounds. It will be really beneficial to concentrate on these as they are tricky to remember and also tricky for the children to spot within words as they consist of 3 letters (trigraph). 

I hope you have a great weekend.

Mrs Everitt and Mrs Aplin.

Homework - 19th November 2021

Dear Parents/Carers

This week’s home learning is maths based. We have been learning about 3D shapes in class and would like you to go on a 3D shape hunt around the house and label them with the shapes:

· Cuboid

· Sphere

· Cylinder

· Pyramid

· Cube

Happy hunting!

From Mrs Everitt and Mrs Aplin

 

 

Homework - 12th November 2021

Dear parents,

We hope you have had an enjoyable week. The children have all been working hard in all their subjects. We have been writing about the story of the Gruffalo and using adjectives in our writing. In Maths, we have been using the inequality symbols to compare statements. 

In phonics, we have been learning to read 2 syllable words whilst looking at the sounds oo, ar and or. 

Please have a go at the phonics booklet to help practice these sounds. 

Enjoy your weekend.

Mrs Everitt and Mrs Aplin

Additional Homework 12/11/21 - Please click for details

 

Dear Year 1 Parents, 

Welcome back to Term 2. 

Every week we will put a piece of optional homework on the website that you and your child can access. Only do it if you feel that your child would benefit from it and you have the time to do it with them. Homework should not cause stress in your household. 

Homework will be sent on a Friday every week. If it needs to be returned, please return before the following Friday. 

The children are loving learning about life as a six year old from the past. We have enjoyed playing games and researching modern toys compared to old toys and discovering all about school life 100 years ago.

We are happy to see work the children produce at home and always give them house points for additional work. Over the years, for this topic, children have quizzed parents and grandparents about their school life, and the toys they played with when they were six. Feel free to enjoy the learning with your child and find out what we have been doing in class with them.

Maths for this week  5/11/21 (Fact Families)

This week in class we have been looking at fact families. This is creating addition and subtraction sentences using the same 3 numbers ensuring the children use the correct symbols.  

Here is a worksheet to give a go to see if you can find all the facts that fit in that family of numbers.

Many thanks in advance with your support with the children with this. The best model for our fabulous St. Augustine's children is for us all to work together in partnership to support their learning. 

Kind regards,

Mrs Everitt and Mrs Aplin
