Learning at Home
Home Learning Project Autumn 1
This term we are looking the topic 'what is the best toy in the world?' and we would like all children to carry out a mini investigation at home. We have asked the children to discover what their grandparents played with when they were children. The children can choose to present this information in any way they wish!
We have had some lovely entries already and can't wait to see more!
The most important home work is sharing a book with your child daily. If your child reads at home please make sure that you record this in the home learning diary as children are collecting stickers each time they read. A full book mark will mean a visit to Mrs Lagares and a special treat! Some children have already started collecting their prizes.
Spellings – Tricky words/Common Exception Words
Some words just need to be learnt by heart as you can’t use phonological knowledge to spell them. Please make sure that you are spending time each week to practise at least 3 words. This will give your child so much confidence when writing. We will be re-testing these words half termly and feeding back on their progress. These words were handed out more recently in Year 1. Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you need another copy.
Year 1 – children should know the number bonds to 10 by heart, for example 1 + 9 =10, 2+8 =10 … Challenge – do you know all the numbers that make 20?
Year 2 – Children should know the number bonds to 20 and 100 by heart: 1+ 9 = 10, 1 +19 = 20, 10 + 90 = 100.
Challenge – how will the number bonds to 10 help you with these tricky additions? 61+29=?,
23 + 57= ?
Please practise this little and often, in the car, waiting in a queue or even walking to school! We would like to thank you for your continued support.
