This week’s homework is some revision of bonds of 10 and the related addition and subtraction facts. A sheet will be sent home, with an example to set you on your way. We recognise that it is a very busy time of year and that the children (and adults) are very tired – so don’t forget that KS1 homework is optional. However, if you do have the energy, we look forward to seeing your ideas. Have fun!
Hooray, now December is here, we can finally begin to celebrate Christmas! This week’s homework is all about ‘giving’. At this busy time, we would like you to see if you can give your family 5 gifts. All the gifts must cost nothing! For example, you could help your Dad make the lunch, or make your Grandma a special card. You could give your younger brother or sister a bed time story, or help Mum take out the recycling. Draw/take photos and write about your gifts to your family. Have fun giving to others.
From Monday 3rd December each class will be taking part in a reverse advent calendar, where children bring in food and hygiene items to be donated to the Food Bank.
However, Owl Class will do this slightly differently to the other classes. We would like all children to bring their donation in on Monday 3rd December (instead of each child having a individual date). The item(s) can be stored in their locker.
Then each day a child’s name will be pulled from a pot and they can then place their item into the hamper. By all children having one date to remember, we hope to make life easier for you at this busy time. Thank you for your help and support.
This week we would like you to practise counting amounts and writing numbers to 20. Sheets will be sent home for you to complete. If you want to challenge yourself further you could make groups of items showing amounts 11 – 20. You could take photographs or draw pictures of amounts to 20. You could look for numbers up to 20 on doors, signs, etc. you could use chalk and write huge numbers to 20 on the pavement or find other ways to have fun with numbers. Have fun being a number detective!
This weeks homework is to find an example of a 3D shape in your home or the world around you, e.g. a tin of beans for a cylinder. You can draw or take photos, and then label each picture. Try and learn the names for all of the 6 3D shapes on the sheet. Have fun!
This week we have been learning about 2 polar animals – penguins and polar bears. We have also been learning about simple addition. So this week’s homework is to create/find 2 pictures (one with polar bears, the other with penguins) to represent these number sentences –
2 + 3 = 5
3 = 1 + 2
this picture shows… 2 + 3 = 5
(2 penguins sliding, 3 penguins walking, 5 penguins altogether)
this picture shows… 3 = 1 + 2
( 3 polar bears, 1 mother bear, 2 cubs)
You might be able to find pictures on the internet, create pictures using your laptop, or you could draw them. Don’t forget to write the number sentence to go with the picture, and if you fancy a challenge… try and make the part-part-whole diagram to go with each number sentence/picture. Have fun!
This week we have been learning about animals in WWI. This week’s homework is to write about your pet(s). You can use photographs, print off pictures from the internet or use drawings. Try and write at least 3 sentences about your pet (don’t forget spaces, capital letters and full stops). If you do not have a pet, write about your dream pet. We look forward to reading about the pets in your life.
This week’s homework is to tell us all about your holiday news. You can write and draw about the activities that you get up to. You can use photos, draw maps, add leaflets, etc. Your challenge is to write at least 3 sentences. Don’t forget to start with a capital letter, leave spaces between words and finish with a full stop. Try and use cursive handwriting. Have fun – we look forward to reading about your adventures.
Today the children have been making potions for the fairies. Here are some photos….
This week we have been learning about bonds of 10 (all the pairs of numbers which equal 10).
2 sheets have been sent home to help children practise these bonds.
Also, please can you practise this rhyme with your children:
9 and 1 are bonds of 10,
8 and 2 are friends,
7 and 3,
6 and 4,
And 5 and 5 are twins – YEAH!
(Whisper) And don’t forget 10 and 0!
