This week in English we will be reading the story Jasper's Beanstalk by Nick Butterworth and Nick Inkpen. The children have been learning how to write instructions and will be writing their own instructions later on in the week on how to plant a seed.
In maths we have been recapping addition and subtraction. We have been using the number line to recap jumping forwards for addition and jumping backwards for subtraction. Later on in the week will be solving worded questions for addition and subtraction. As part of your home learning you could ask your child worded questions such as- 'If I have 6 apples and you give me 5 more, how many have I got altogether?' and 'I have 12 biscuits and eat 3, how many do I have left?'.
After half term the children will be completing a quick phonics check. Over the next few weeks we will be sending home some real and alien words. We encourage the children to sound the words out and then blend them back together, for example, glump > g-l-u-m-p; fair > f-air; rescue > r-e-s-c-ue. They do not need to remember the words but be able to identify the sounds and blend them back together.
We have moved our Summer Reading Event to Thursday 7th June at 9am. This is our final year one event for the year.
With the ever changing weather please remember to send children in suitable clothing! In PE we are hoping to be outside as much as possible so please send in suitable outdoor shoes.
We also ask that you continue to read with your children at least five times a week. This can be a mixture of phonics, tricky words, reading book, magazines, library books, big talk. It does not have to be the school reading book but reading these regularly helps the children to become more confident and fluent readers.
We hope you all have a lovely half term break- we cannot believe that we only have one half term left!
