Week 2 Spring term January 11th

Hello Year One,


Well done on completing your first week of home learning. I was so impressed with your enthusiasm and commitment last week and I am very proud of you all. 


This week you are continuing with the Magic Paintbrush in literacy and you will be working towards writing your own story. In maths it is still addition and subtraction and you start the week with continuing to focus on number bonds and then you move onto using your number bond skills along with other methods to solve subtraction. Please remember to do daily reading for ten minutes and also daily phonics for ten minutes, these are both crucial to your literacy progress.


Your topic lessons this week continue to be PE, music, PSHE, geography, RE and ICT. I am really enjoying looking at all of your creative Purple Mash paintbrush designs.


Remember that home learning isn’t always easy so some helpful tips to make it more enjoyable are, always listen to your grown ups- they really want the best for you. Take little breaks, allow time for play and make sure you get some fresh air each day, even if it’s just ten minutes exploring in the garden or outside space.


Keep up the good work Year One, you are super stars.
