'Believe to Achieve'

Wednesday 10.6.20

Financial Education Activity


Today we are going to think about how to keep our money safe.

Sometimes we put money in a piggy bank in our houses or in a bank account so it will stay safe and make interest.

Have a look at the information provided from Natwest which explains about keeping our money safe.  




For today's starter we would like your child to practice writing numbers between 90 and 100.  Say a number between 90 and 100 and your child writes it down, taking care to form their numbers correctly.  Practice all the numbers but do them out of sequence for more of a challenge.

Adding Equal Groups


Yesterday you were working on understanding and recognising equal groups.  Today you are going to build on that by adding equal groups.  At this stage we are not formally exploring  multiplication  but are laying the foundations for future learning.  The purpose of today's lesson is to use equal groups to find a total.


In Year one, our focus is counting groups of two, five and ten.


Use objects around your home and arrange them in equal groups of two, five or ten.  Get your child to practice finding the total by counting up in the number there are in the group.  Look at the example in the video below.

Discuss how many groups there are and what the total is.  In my example, you would get your child to explain that there were eight groups of two and that made a total of sixteen.


Once your child is confident at counting in groups of two, five and ten, try the problems below.

Remember to learn to read and write the words independently


Activity - Today we are going to explore questions including question words and the punctuation of a question mark. 

Have a look on the Year 1 section of the video resource centre on the website to find today's Question lesson. 


Below are a range of different images to help you think of some questions you might want to write. You can think of your own. Don't forget to use the question words above to help start your questions and the punctuation ? at the end of your questions.


Activity – Computing (Purple Mash)


We would like you to log in to Purple Mash using your own login (which was sent via Marvellous Me previously) and complete the 2Dos which have been set. 


To access the 2Dos you will see a red link at the top left of the page once you are logged in. Make sure you save them once they are completed. You can always come back and work on it again at a later time. If you require your login again please do not hesitate to contact us. 



Phonics and Reading


We would like you to watch the phonics lessons from Letters and Sounds which are located on YouTube and also uploaded on the phonics resource and support section in the Home Learning part of the website.


We are uploading the videos from the previous week and would like you to keep checking the Phonics section each day, especially if there is a sound your child needs to work on. Please feel free to revisit this sound, as this is what we would be doing in class to consolidate understanding. 


If there are supporting activities to support the video, they will be underneath, There are also some videos using flash cards. Please have a go at saying the sounds along with Miss Smith. Make sure you are saying the pure sounds accurately. 


Don't forget to read your book everyday.
