Home Learning- week beginning 13/7/20
It's the last week of the school year..and what a funny one it's been! We'd like to thank all of you parents for your continued support throughout this strange time; whether your child has been at home or at school.
We are both so excited to be continuing your children's learning journey with them in year 2 next year :) It's an important year for the children, so please continue to prepare and support them during the summer by enjoying reading together and exposing them to number in the wider world (explore money, measure and time). Above all, we hope you have a lovely summer and a well earned break!
This weeks learning is a bit of a check list of year 1 targets. Please take the time to have a go at some of the activities.
* Check that your child can read and spell the year one common words (see link below). Practise putting them into funny sentences or playing hangman with the trickier spelling.
*Check that they know the days of the week and months of the year- create a calendar with a picture representing each month.
*Read a book together. Can you spot any year one common words in it? Make a list of some you find. Ask your child questions and get them to show you where it tells you the answer.
*Encourage your child to write about their favourite memory of year one (make sure they use capital letters and full stops!). Was it finding the dinosaur footprints? Trip to the wildlife park? Dinosaur assembly? Sports relief fun with the assault course? Sports day at home/school?

*Make sure they can count in 2's 5's and 10's- remember there are lot's of songs on YouTube that can help with this learning. This is a favourite of theirs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WghTG10k1EU
* Check they can count to 100 and back, again there is a great video for that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jMmZaFvRpE. They also like the game 'Helicopter rescue' for finding numbers to 100.
