This week we are going to focus on spellings.
If your child needs to learn some of the Year 1 common exception words (words that are not spelt as they sound) then please carry on spelling these. The first picture on the slideshow is the list of Year 1 common exception words and the pictures which follow are some ideas of how your child might learn these spellings.
If your child has learnt most of the Year 1 common exception words, this week they could focus on suffixes. A suffix is a string of letters that go at the end of a root word, changing or adding to its meaning. In year 1 we learn the following suffixes: -ing, -ed, -er and –est. We expect to see these suffixes used correctly when no change is needed in the spelling of the root word, for example, shout-ing.
Look at the pictures below, can you guess and write what I am doing? Don't forget to add the suffix -ing.
In Year 1, we learn to name common 2D and 3D shapes like the ones in the word mats below and we also begin to discuss their properties.
This week we are going to focus on making sure we remember the names of the 3D shapes as well as naming their properties. You could go on a 3D shape hunt around your home and send in a picture of you and a shape you found. Another activity you could do is make the 3D shapes with playdough or marshmallows and sticks (as shown in the pictures below). How many faces can you count on your shape? How many edges can you count on your shape?
By the end of year 1 children should be able to identify and name everyday materials and describe their properties. On Week 2’s home learning page you went on a materials hunt and found different objects that matched the materials and properties in the questions.
This week we are going to focus on different ways of grouping these materials. One way we could group them is by whether they float or sink.
You will need:
to find some objects around your house that are made of different materials.
a large container which you can carry out your floating and sinking investigation.
Can you show what happened in pictures or in a grid like the one below?
Can you list ten things you would take with you to Space? Can you use the conjunction ‘because’ to explain why you would take these things? If you have a printer and would like to login to twinkl to get this writing frame, you can create a free login by following the link below.
