Our learning for week commencing 21st September
This week we are going to continue learning about 2D and 3D shapes and measuring capacity.
We will be looking for and naming 2D and 3D shapes in our classroom. We will be naming their properties using the correct mathematical vocabulary shown in the pictures above.
The children will be matching 3D shapes to everyday objects. You could look for some in your homes and gardens.
The children will be measuring capacity looking at full, half full and empty. The children will be predicting which container they think will hold the most/least amount and why they think it, will it be the tall and thin bottle or the short and wide?
If your child is self-isolating at home, here is some of the work that we are doing at school.
Our story this week is ‘‘The Gotcha Smile’ by Rita Philips Mitchell and Alex Ayliffe
Here is a link for you to enjoy the story together at home.
This week the children will be thinking about the characters and their feelings in the story. They will be describing their first day and what they like to do at school. We will be practicing writing super sentences including capital letters, finger spaces, adjectives and full stops. The children will be sharing what they have remembered about the story by sequencing the story in the correct order and writing descriptive sentence about each part of the story.
If your child is self-isolating at home, here is some of the work that we are doing at school this week.
In topic this week the children will be thinking about how they have changed and the life cycle from baby to adults. Watch the video clip below...
We will be looking at a baby picture of your child ( don’t forget to bring one in).
The children will be remembering about when they were a baby. They will be thinking about what they could do as a baby and what babies do or do not do? Why do they need lots of help?
We will be wondering about different times in their lives such as when are you old enough to… sleep in your own bed, walk, cross the road, go to work, drive a car etc.
We will be thinking about how the children have changed from being babies to now that they are old enough to be in year 1. What can they do now that they are older? What do they still need help with?
The children will be learning about what happens after they are children covering the 6 main parts - baby, toddler, child, teenager, adult and elderly. We will be making a life-cycle to show 4 stages of their lives – baby, child, adult and elderly thinking about how they will change and the different things they will be able to do.
This week we will be revising the ai, ee, igh and oa digraphs.
We will be reading the letter sounds in words and sentences practising segmenting and blending.
The children will be thinking of their own words and sentences using the sounds of the week.
