Year 1

Week Commencing – 20th January

The children have been learning:

  • In English we have been reading stories where a favourite toy gets lost. We have thought about how the character feels when the toy is lost and then when the toy is found again.
  • In Maths we have been comparing and ordering numbers up to 20.
  • In Computing we have been thinking about e-safety with Smartie the Penguin.

To support your child with their learning at home you could read a story about toys. Do you have a favourite story about a toy you could bring in?

If your child finds it hard to do up the zip on their coat, please can you practice with them.

Later this term we will be designing and making sock puppets, so if you have any odd socks please can we have them for our puppets. Thank you!

The children have been learning:

  • In English we have been thinking about our favourite stories. We have also described our favourite soft toy.
  • In Maths we have been looking at numbers up to 20: splitting them into tens and ones, finding one more and one less and comparing groups of objects.
  • In Topic this week we started thinking about toys. We thought about what we already know about toys and what we would like to find out.

To support your child with their learning at home you could practice numbers up to 20.

To support your child with their learning at home you could have a walk together and look at what you can see in the winter.
