 Hello everyone, 

We have now completed our Time Travel and are starting the fabulous Magic and Movement topic. Get ready to get very Christmasy and magical very quickly! A large part of what we do is based around the book 'Harvey Slumfenbergers Christmas Present' you can find various videos of people retelling this story on YouTube if you'd like to find out all about it.  Hopefully they will enjoy this just as much as the one before, for more information about what we will cover don't forget to visit the year 1 curriculum page. 

For any of you having to stay at home this week as before there is plenty to keep you busy below in the home learning folder so you don't miss out on all the fun.

Best wishes, stay safe and well.

Year 1 Team

Star Words  

You should find a star word sheet in your book bag which will come home on Monday.  These will have a range of the common exception and tricky words that your child must learn by sight over the course of the year.  If you can read through these as often as possible it will have a big impact on your child's reading particularly if phonics doesn't come easy to them, as this allows them to recognise a good bank of words on a page with minimal effort! It is designed to see how many words they can read in a minute and the amount should increase over the week building confidence and a feeling of success.  We will check the words in school and as long as with us they read the words within a minute accurately we will swap it for another sheet.  If they are not quite secure we will leave it another week to really consolidate their quick recall. We are aware that some children may already recognise the words on the sheet and that is great! See if they can spell the words, it's surprising how even the simplest of words don't transfer over to their writing until they are much more secure with them.  If they can spell them in isolation the next step will be to see if they can put them in a sentence.  

 

Phonics

In school we deliver phonics every day to help children learn their sounds and to segment and blend words to help them read. We have revisited all of our Phase 2 sounds and Phase 2 tricky words and we have now moved onto revisiting Phase 3. The table below shows the phonics we have covered so far.  We are now moving onto Phase 4 which are the consonant blends.

See the pictures below to learn how letter formation is taught and the key language we use to help the children start, finish correctly and sit the letters on the line.
