We have been learning to add by partitioning numbers, to consolidate their learning the children have been given a worksheet to complete.
* Please continue to encourage your child to use Sumdog and Times Tables Rockstars to practise their math skills. Also continue to encourage your child to learn their number bonds to 100.
Please continue to encourage the children to include each word in a different sentence, to demonstrate that they understand how to use the word in context. Remember to underline the word that they have included in a sentence. The children will bring their spelling books home on Friday, so that you can see their spellings scores, however, please make sure the children bring their spelling books to hand in to their teacher on Mondays. Children will be tested on these spellings every Friday.
Group A & B: behind, plant, beautiful, Christmas, sugar, children, consumption, produce, import, export
Group C: One, two, three, four, five, six
To improve the children’s comprehension skills we are encouraging them to use RIC (Retrieve, Interpret, Choice) when answering questions. The children have been given a comprehension worksheet to complete.
As mentioned previously, your child will be building up a range of reading skills. They should have strong phonics knowledge and growing comprehension skills, which will help them read more broadly, confidently, and fluently. Please encourage your child to read for at least 10 minutes each day.
If you'd like to learn more, visit the BBC Bitesize website for KS1 - here you'll find relevant and fun activities which will support your learning in each subject :) https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/primary
Remember to look at our Curriculum map each half term to find out about what we are learning in each area of the curriculum and to support your child's home learning.
Mrs Harris is encouraging our children to touch-type during their computer lessons. Would you kindly continue to ask them to practise this. Click on the links below to help them.
Wishing you a happy and peaceful weekend.
