Year 1 Learning. Term4, Week2

Thanks for all your support with our delayed 100 Day in School last week. We had lots of fun sharing all things great about 100! Thank you too for all the wonderful outfits and ideas to help us celebrate World Book Day and for coming to share your child’s learning during our Open Day. We look forward to meeting with you at our parents evenings this week.

Noticeboard

  • This week: Parents Evenings Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th March (Remote)
  • Our Year 1 Performance will hopefully happen in the final week of term. We will be doing a performance at 9:30 on Wednesday 6th April and possibly a second on Thursday 7th April, if we need to be mindful of numbers in the hall. We will confirm this nearer the time. Thank you for your patience.
  • You will find below a grid showing the sessions to be taught each week. They do not exactly follow days as each class has different sessions due to support and PE times being different but it allows you to see the week as a snapshot of sessions. 

We will always aim to get outside, whatever the weather, as much as possible so children will really need a waterproof coat each day.

Session 1 :
Discuss what opposites mean. Look at the different stories that have opposite characters in- can you think of any more? 
Look at different adjectives, can you think of what the opposite would be as class?
Complete worksheet of opposite characters at the top and opposite traits at the bottom. 

Session 2:–  
Introduce the word because- discuss different ways of remembering how to spell it. 
Sort parts of sentences into longer sentences that make sense and stick them in books. Use sentence starters to copy and complete. 

Session 3:– 
Read the letter to the class (from the yeti asking how to make friends). Children discuss with talk partners why someone might be lonely and not have any friends. 
Share pictures of yeti’s and think about whether or not they would be friends with a yeti. Orally complete sentences “I would be friends with a yeti because…” “I would not be friends with a yeti because…”

Session 4:- 
Introduce and read the book ‘The Yeti and the Bird’. 
Look at page 2- pick out the adjectives. What do they all have in common? Underline the ‘est’ part of each word. Identify the root words in each.

Session 5:- Handwriting: Focus on correct letter formation to practise

Reading
