Year 1 Learning Week 5 Term 6


Whole School Final Topic/Transition: Journeys

  • We will be inviting 1 parent for each child to come to our ‘Learning Share’  to be held on the class patios on this Wednesday, 7th July. This will be a chance for you to look through your child’s work with them and then in small groups come into the classroom to take a look around and see where all their amazing learning has been taking place. Full social distancing will need to be observed, including the wearing of masks. If you could bring a pen or pencil, you will have the opportunity to complete the parent view for your child’s report whilst you are sharing their work with them.

                  Class 5 – 2:30 pm – 3:15 pm  (odds)

                  Class 4 and 6 – 9:10 am – 9:55 am  (evens)

  • Remember to click the link to plans and resources below if your child is needing to self-isolate but is well. Please email the class email address if you find yourself in this position and are unsure.
  • We will continue to aim to get outside as much as possible so they really need a waterproof coat each day.

Session 2 : Complete sheet with think bubbles to show what the characters in the house are thinking. How do we know when the book has no written words? 
Session 3:Create a Headline (and article) for a Newspaper
Learning Objectives:
To create a headline and picture  for a newspaper report.
Activity: To write a newspaper report about the arrival of the little girl, including a headline and picture.
Imagine that you live in that big castle. How would you feel if a stranger suddenly appeared in your city on a magical, red boat? Write a newspaper article about the girl who arrived in the city in a red boat. Who could she be? Why is she here? Think about the headline, and make it exciting. You will need a picture to go with your article too. Share examples of newspapers.
Reduced Challenge: Write the headline and draw a picture for the front of your newspaper. Think about the writing style you could use to make the headline stand out.
Challenge: Write the headline and the article. You can make it as long or short as you want. Use all the ideas you have already come up with. Include a picture and get some ideas from newspapers, the school newspaper and the other resources we have provided.
Include  commonly mis-spelt words in writing books and  from completed spelling tests.  Link  phonics by using other words using the alternative spellings.  

Whole Class Reading – Fiction Focus –  ‘Back to Earth with a Bump’ – A journey of a different kind!
Individual Reading – Fully decodable books at the level of the children so that they are able to develop fluency. 
Guided Reading Groups – Focus on Fiction. Use the 3 levels of reading comprehensions about ‘Journey to Space’.

Please also continue to use Pearson books online for additional material. Books will be changed weekly  on specific days for your child.


Halving and Doubling 
Learning objectives:
To relate doubling to adding the same number to itself
To relate halving a number to sharing equally between 2 groups
To begin to understand that halving and doubling are inverse operations

We will be working practically using numicon and other apparatus to find the double of a number and recording it as a number sentence.
We will also be giving children a chance to practise recalling their doubles and halves facts within 10 and within 20. Supporting at home:
Hit the button is a great game that you may remember from home learning. You can support them with the recall of their doubles and halves facts by giving them a chance to play this at home (set it to double and halves!)
Playing dominoes is another nice way of practising doubles.
