Year 1 - Oakwood

Weekly Update (Week ending 14.02.20)

In Oakwood this week: 

In maths we continued our work with place value by using our knowledge of it to answer place value questions. We also continued to develop our confidence in numbers to 40 by answering more and less questions, e.g. what is 4 more than 30, what is 3 less than 31. We have also been looking at 100 squares and practising how to read them accuratly.

In English we have been having oppotunities for extending writing linked with well known stories. We aimed to apply all our learning so far to these pieces. We have written two stories where we retold a well known favourite and also a letter. This was to practice being able to write in 1st person and  3rd person. 


In phonics our sounds have been: ay ( play, stay), a_e (make, state), e_e (even, theme). 


The spelling test this week will be on week 6's spellings.


All the spellings are taken from the Year 1 common high frequency words. All the spellings for this half term have been attached. 


For some children who can already confidently spell these words, other words to practice would be from the Year 1 and 2 common exception words that are now in the homework books. 


MPL now has its own twitter account - this is another great way to keep up to date with what is going on in school. 


A reminder that this term P.E. will be every Tuesday and Wednesday. 


Next week:

We hope you all enjoy the half term break.

No homework over the break, however if you would like an activity to get involved in for the children we are having a competion for the best decorated poataoe! They must be decorated as a book character and will be judged the first week back after half term. 


In addition to this we would love to have photos of any children who would like to be represented in our  'Catch me Reading' display. We would like to see the stragest places you can find where it is possible to read. 


Thank you to all of you who have already signed up to Marvellous Me the children are really enjoying sending you messages about their lessons and looking out for new badges.
