Literacy-Spelling

This week we would like you to check how many of this weeks’ Year 1, common exception words you are spelling correctly from our list and which ones you still need to practise.

This week’s words:

sure, who, water, again, half, ask, his, were, your, they.

Ask and adult to test you on them and then look together to see which ones you spelt correctly.

If you need to practise any then open the activity mat with that word on and try the activities on the mat for your word. (in resources)

Once you can spell them all correctly try this spelling game:


 

Literacy-A Letter to Me.

This week we are going to learn about letters and by the end of the week we are going to write a letter to ourselves to remember our year. Then you could keep this letter in a safe place and open it at a time that you choose- this could be at the end of Year 6, in 10 years’ time, when you turn 18 or at a time of your choice. That way you can keep all the memories of this year safe (a little bit like a time capsule). This week there are only 4 different activities so that you can have a break from writing on your last day in Year 1.

Activity 4- Can you write a letter to yourself?

Using all of the ideas that you have gathered this week; can you write your letter to yourself. Remember than you might read this when you are much older so try to make it really amazing and include lots of interesting details. You could look at some of the example letters that we read in activity 1 to help you with ideas and don’t forget to use your planning sheet from yesterday. If you look in the resources there is also a tick list of Year 1 skills that you could try to include in your writing too. When you have finished your letter, don’t forget that you can sent it to your teacher who would love to read all about you! We hope that you enjoy this last writing activity.

Maths- Maths Challenge

In this section please reflect on what you have already learnt about addition, multiplication and problem solving to try to beat Holly’s score. You may want to test lots of different ways and see whether changing the order of the numbers and the order of the symbols creates a bigger number. A large version of the problem is in the resources.

 

It is time to say goodbye to Year 2

 

Usually at the end of the Year with your school report we would ask you to write about something you have done well at, something that you have enjoyed and something that you would like to get better at next year.

 

Why don’t you have a go.

Your answers may be about home learning or about school. Use the topic report sent with your school report to look back at all of the things you have done whilst you were in school this year. Which was your favourite?

What are you looking forward to next year? What would you like to learn about next year?

You could write these down and keep them to look back on at the end of Year 3 or talk these through with someone.
