Week beginning 28th March

In English we will be watching a short video clip called 'Soar'. We will be writing a prediction task based on this clip. We will also be writing setting descriptions and character descriptions.

There are also some brilliant daily Year 1 phonic video lessons available on Letters and Sounds for Home and School - YouTube Feel free to ask which would be the most suitable videos for your child to watch. 



In maths the children will be continuing to work on 'measurement' but this week we will be focussing on ordering objects by weight and volume. We will be using the mathematical voculabulary, heavier/lighter, balance, volume and mass.


There are also some brilliant Year 1 daily maths video lessons available on the home learning section of the White Rose Maths website. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning

You may also wish to download the FREE 1-minute maths app onto your devises.

It is aimed at Key Stage 1 pupils (ie, age 5-6 years). Individual one-minute tasks focus on adding and subtracting – and on ‘Subitising’, the skill of instantly recognising the number of items in a group without counting. 



In History we will be learning about the aviation achievements of Amelia Earhart and Amy Johnson.

In Geography we will be continuing to compare the city of London to Kuala Lumpur and also Dubai. We will consider the human and physical features of all.

In Science we will be continuing to investigate the properties of materials, this week we will be testing to see if materials are magnetic or not.

On Wednesday we will be having a visit from the Fire Service and learning all about fire safety.


Ways to help at home...

Log onto the Rising Stars website - your child has a number of books allocated to them that are appropriate for their reading level.

Why not do some baking with your child and help them weigh the ingredients so that they can apply their mathematical learning.
