Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero

Thursday 18th June

Good  morning Year 1's. It was lovely to see some of you appearing on the Wednesday Word Zoom meeting. I watched the video later on which cut off after 3 minutes, so I don't know what was in Mrs Smith's box; maybe you could let me know through our blog!smiley


Our literacy learning for today is to write our character description of Dougal inside our 'lift the flap' booklets we made yesterday. If you have done your picture of Dougal on the front then you can now cut 4 equal sized 'doors' into it. Like this...

Our Maths Learning Today...


smileyToday we begin our new unit of work (keeping in line with our maths curriculum), Number and Place Value (within 100). This topic will continue into school next week for those children returning to the classroom, and we will continue to set exactly the same work for those children working from home. You do have most of the sheets in your latest pack (labelled 15th June), and more will be made available to those working from home this week from Wednesday. The sheets will continue to be put online too so they can be printed out if the children want to try a different star chilli challenge!yes


 Throughout the next series of lessons our children will build on their knowledge of counting from 0-50 to count to 100. Children will understand that 100 has 3 digits and one in the hundred column. They will be able to relate this to a place value grid. Children should be able to represent numbers up to 100 using various equipment such as sets of/ rods of  10, place value counters, etc. They will be able to count forwards and backwards from a given number and be able to identify the number before and after a given number. Children may  use hundred square to help them. It is important that children understand the importance of the place value columns, for example, they should be able to describe the difference between 67 and 76 in terms of tens and ones.  Ask questions such as:
Can you describe the number ___ and represent it using sets of  10 / place value counters / on a place value grid?
How many objects are there? How did you count them?
What number comes before and after ___ ?
Can you spot a pattern on the hundred square?
The number in between ___ and ___ is ___.
Write all numbers in between ___ and ___.

Please start from lesson 1 on the powerpoint...
