Tuesday 30th June

Good morning Galileo boys and girls,


We hope you are all well and ready for another day of learning!  The Year 1 children in school were very busy yesterday; learning their sounds with Rosie, reading a non fiction book called 'At the Seaside', completing some maths work learning about beaches and we even managed some Drawing with Rob! Thank you so much for all those who continue to send emails and share on the school blog what you are doing at home, we know that you are very busy learning at home too. We hope to see you soon.


Here is the plan for today...



Continue to learn your sounds, words and spellings by completing the following Read, Write Inc. lessons:

  • Set 3 Speed Sound Lesson - today's sound you will review is 'o-e'
  • Set 3 Spelling Lesson
  • Reading Longer words - you will read Green words focusing on the sounds 'or/aw'

Today I thought you may like to try a new Read, Write Inc. video called 'Read and Hold a Sentence 2'. These videos are good to put all your sound knowledge into practise by writing a sentence. I would suggest using the video for the Blue or Grey storybook.


Continue to read the book which you chose yesterday. Once you have finished reading this, either today or later in the week, answer the questions found in the book. These can either be found on the first or last page of the book. Answer the questions in your Home Learning book and remember to answer the questions in sentences, using puncuation and thinking about spelling. 


Please continue to keep practising your handwriting.  Why not practise in your Home Learning book and remember to use your handwriting guide to help you (found in your first Home Learning pack). If there are certain letters you find tricky keep practising these. It is also a good idea to practise joining letters you know go together, so why not practising your 'special friends' from Read, Write Inc, for example: 'igh' 'ear' and 'aw' Remember you can keep practising your handwriting with any writing task you do throughout the week, whether its spellings or story writing. 


Today's maths lesson focuses on learning times quarter past and quarter to. Share the PowerPoint presentation lesson 2 and discuss the following questions:


How can fractions help us when finding quarter past / to times?
Where will the hour hand be positioned for quarter past / quarter to?
Why do we use the terms ‘to’ and ‘past’?
What time is being displayed on the clock?


You then have a worksheet reading and writing times which are quarter past and quarter to. There's also a bingo game which you may enjoy playing once you have finished the worksheet. 




Choose your topic lesson for today from the Topic page. In school today the children will completing some Science work, learning about the parts of a plant. They will also be finishing off their Drawing with Rob task. Have a fun day.smiley
