Hello Year One, 

I hope you have a lovely 'half term' break. I hope you had ago at the activities and enjoyed them.

Thank you for sending in pictures of you taking part in Mr Chicks challenge!

This week we are going to be starting some new topics which I can not wait to share with you. 


Writing - 01.06.20


We are going to carry on with the Kevin the Koala Who Could story! Now that we have learned it and chosen our own ideas for the first part of the story. We are going to have a go at creating part 2 of our story.


Remember that we can use the original story but change different parts (in the white boxes) to make our own story!


The second part of Kevin the Koala goes like this...


On Monday, Wilma the Wombat asked Kevin to come down and play. He couldn't let go. On Tuesday, Jack the Joey shouted for him to come down. He wished he could.

I have put boxes over the parts we are going to change:


On Monday, _____ _____ ______ asked ______to ______ _____ _____. He couldn't let go. On Tuesday, ____ _____ _____shouted for him to _________. He wished he could.

This week we are thinking about two new characters and what Percy needs help with?


Maths - 01.06.20

This week we are going to focus on adding and subtracting numbers beyond 20 using our part part whole model. For today we will be focusing on reading maths problems and using a part part whole model to represent the problems before we solve them.


As an example: 


This is my problem which I need to represent in a part part whole model. 


Claire walks 42 steps and Harriet walks 16 steps. How many steps do they both take?

My part part whole model needs to have 42 as the whole and 16 as one part. I need to solve what the other part with me to make 42. 


So I now know, I am using subtraction to solve my word problem. 42 - 16 = 26.

I hope you have been praticing your phonics! This week we are going to listen to a new story. You may of heard of this story before but I would like you to write down and draw how it might end differently. So listen carefully and pay attention to the details.

Include What you like to do? Who your friends are? What are you really good at? What do you need to improve on in school? Also, think about some personal things such as :

I enjoy walking to the beach when it is rainy and when it is sunny. I am really good at drawing. I need to improve my writing and spelling. I want to get better at running.
