'Believe to Achieve'



Today we would like you to consolidate your understanding of the 'ai' sound family by practicing the words below. Watch the video for more information about these spellings. 

We have also included the common exception words for Year 1. It is essential the children know how to read and write all these words by the end of Year 1.

Today we are going to look at the country of Peru, where Paddington Bear came from and describe what it looks like from a picture. Watch the video of Miss Smith explaining the lesson, then complete the work sheet from the pack. A copy of the sheet in your pack is linked below.

Today we are practicing the 'in' and 'im' joins.


Today is Fluency Friday when we practice our mental addition and subtraction skills.  As usual, hit the link to join in with some counting and our number sense activity, then watch the introduction to today's lesson.


For the main part of our lesson today, you need to practice Gem Maths and take the Gem maths test.  The documents you need are available below but you should also have the relevant test in your learning pack.  If you score 19 or 20 in three minutes or under, let us know so we can move you to the next level.


Coding - Bubbles

Log on to Purple Mash as I showed you last week.  Then look for the 2Dos in the top left corner.  Find the activity Bubbles and off you go! Hit the link for a brief introduction to the activity.




For the end of this week, we would like you to sit and enjoy a cosy story with your grown up or sibling. It can be your favourite story, a story from home, a story from school or any book you want to share together. We would love to see you sharing the story together, so please send in a photograph or video of you taking part in the story.
