Year 1 Home Learning

We have been learning to play ‘Snakes and Ladders’.

Can you teach someone at home how to play. Everyone will bring home their own board which you could use! All you need is a dice and some counters!

1B’s Handa’s Surprise Dance

We’ve been choreographing a dance to tell the story of Handa’s Surprise.

Can you spot the seven fruit stealing animals and the tangerine toppling goat?

Well done 1B, I’m really proud of you.

1B Sneezing Elephant Maths

This week, Ella the elephant, from Handa’s Surprise, has been to visit us. Ella has been carrying sticks, but she has a bad cold and she keeps sneezing and dropping her sticks!

We’ve been putting them into bundles of ten and counting them in tens and ones.

1B Safari Park and dinosaur Forest.

Wow, what an amazing day we had at Port Lympne.

Well done Year One for managing that long wait on the coach.

Which animals did you see?

Which were your favorite animals?

1B were keeping themselves entertained on the coach.

Yr1 Home Learning

This week, we went on Safari!

Make a list of all the animals that we saw! How many can you remember? Maybe you could draw some of your favourite animals.

Also, tell someone at home all about our day. You could use the words ‘first, next, then, after that and finally’ to help you.

Year 1 Home Learning

We have been practising our 10 times table. Can you practise counting in 10s at home? Maybe you could collect objects and put them into groups of 10. How many groups do you have? How many altogether?

Maths at Holbeach

The teaching of Maths has changed a lot over the years and we are aware that your child will be learning in very different ways to how you were taught at school!

Your child will be coming home with a ‘Parents Guide to Maths’ for their year group, outlining the expectations for the year, what they will be taught and how you can support their understanding at home.

The leaflet covers all the areas of Maths, with examples and diagrams to help you. You can download the leaflets for all the year groups below.

Rhyme Time

In Year 1 we have been thinking about rhyming words. We have all enjoyed singing the Big Pig song. We have talked about what jigs and figs are. We have made our own rhyming books.

Year 1 Home Learning

We have been learning to rhyme! Can you read as many rhyming books as you can? Maybe you could share one with the class.

Also, can you make a rhyming string to share with our class? Maybe you can make lots!

This is one to get you started…

cat, mat, sat, hat, rat, bat……..
