Good morning Year 1. I hope your wellies were handy for this week, you surely needed them!! Due to the weather I haven't walked much this week. Instead I have made lots of birthday cards.
I hope that you enjoyed 'To Infinity and Beyond' and managed to enjoy some of the 'Green Up' topic. In school we watched a few videos about the astronauts who are currently on the International Space Station, we planted carrot, cress and sunflower seeds, and made egg and cress sandwiches.
Below is your home learning for this week. Remember if you need any more paper, pencils, paper copies of the resources or other equipment please ask your parents to pop up to school. The resources will be in the school entrance way.
Year 1 !!
The title of the English work this week is 'Bears'. I hope you enjoy the unit and if you hold a teddy bears' picnic please email a photo of it to school. If you do not want your children to use YouTube, you can access the materials below without using YouTube or see some of the paper resources in the packs. Once again you want to adapt the activities to suit your needs, feel free to change them. I hope you enjoy the theme.

Tricky Words - please spend some time each week practising the phonics tricky words. By the end of Year 1 children should be able to read the phase 2, 3, 4 and 5 words at speed. This will improve their fluency when reading. You could play the tricky words games that have been sent home and/or play the tricky words game on
Phonics sounds - the phonics sounds that your child has been taught so far in Reception & Year 1 are shown below. Please spend some time each week practising how to read and write these sounds. I have also included 2 documents below that can be adapted to use for phase 2, 3 and 5 phonics sounds. They give ideas for reading the sounds, blending sounds together to read, & segmenting sounds in words to spell. There are lots of fun games on phonics play to practise these sounds and numerous phonics resources on twinkl - both are currently free to use. Feel free to use these sounds to make up your own spelling tests.
