Well, the 2nd half of the Spring Term is here! We hope you had an enjoyable half term!

This half term we will conduct 2 different projects. Our first, is called The Giant Problem and involves the children becoming mathematicians in order to judge ‘The Tallest Giant in Town’ competition!

The children will be measuring using non-standard units and then in centimetres, using rulers.

Please look out for our home learning which will be coming home this week!

During the first week back we will spend a lot of time measuring using non-standard units. We will be measuring using our feet and then will discuss the problems that can occur when you measure this way!

We will writing sentences in the present and past tense so that the children can confidently apply ‘ing’ and ‘ed’ endings to words. Eg looking, looked.

In Number Time, we will be looking at representing numbers in different ways. How can we show the number 32? How many tens and ones? What comes after it? Before it? On a hundred square, what number is below it? Can you think of a number sentence which makes 32?

In phonics we will be learning ‘ing’ and ‘ed’ endings. We will also be practising reading words with the sounds ie, oe, ue in them.

We will be doing Gymnastics in PE this half term.

Vocabulary

Here is some key project vocabulary that you can help your child to learn about. We will be talking about these words in class so help your child to learn the meaning of the word and learn to apply it orally in a sentence.

  • vertical
  • horizontal
  • measure
  • centimetre
  • roughly
  • exactly
  • precisely

Project Updates

We celebrated our 100th school day in Year 1 just before the half term break.

Each day we have counted the day by adding a straw into our chart and then once we had 10 separate straws we bundled them together as a set of 10. We looked at how numbers to 99 had a tens digit and a ones digit.

Take a look at some of the fun we had!
