Phonics Homework by Brooke

I made phonics Jenga by writing the phonic sounds on each block. I wrote them so that you couldn’t see what it was until the block was taken out of the stack.

A Slimy Visitor!

Year One were very surprised to find a slimy mess on the playground this week!

There was also a letter from a monster called Slimy Steve! The children had to use their phonics to decode the letter as he’s not very good at spelling!

The children were very eager to check the school CCTV footage to see if the slimy visitor had been caught on camera…

 

We also listened to Miss Zauscinski telling us what she spotted at Crown Point North…

We decided to make some WANTED posters to try and find him:

Jaxon even designed a trap to try and catch Slimy Steve!

 

On Friday we came in to discover that cheeky Slimy Steve had returned and left his underpants to dry in our classrooms!

Slimy Steve also left us a little present! It was a gift to thank us for letting him dry his pants in our classrooms!

 

We had lots of fun matching the underpants to their monster owners and measuring the underpants with rulers and cubes!

Phenomenal Phonics!

This week Year 1 have impressed all the adults with their super phonics knowledge! Well done Year 1!

Their individual score in the Phonics Screening Check will be sent home with the end of year report.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Kingsley and Miss Coggan

Phonics Homework by Mia

I made Phonics Twister with a sheet . I put 16 circles. Then i painted the 16 circles and in each 16 circles I put a sound in each circle. Then I made a spinner to get the colour and right or left foot or right or left hand .The colours are Red,Blue,Yellow and Green. When you land on a circle you have to make a word using that sound.

Phonics Homework by Amelia

We made the sounds and corresponding pictures into a jigsaw. Amelia had to find the sound and correct picture. When she had she had to say that sound.

Phonics Homework by Bobby P

I made hopscotch in the park using my phonics and chalk. It was fun.
I also wrote an origami game with my sounds and it was harder then the hopscotch . I played it with mummy and daddy. It helped me with my phonics and I was really good with sounds.

Fairtrade

We’ve been learning about Fairtrade foods and where they come from. We know to look out for the Fairtrade logo as buying these products helps farmers earn enough money to buy clothes and food.

 

Magnificent Mo!

This week Year 1 have been learning all about the British athlete Mo Farah.

We read all about him and wrote some super questions and facts.

We enjoyed the story ‘Ready Steady Mo!’ by Mo Farah, Kes Gray and Marta Kissi. We retold it using Explain Everything on the iPads.

We also learnt Mo’s famous Mobot dance:

 

All about Tim Peake and Space!

Our influential person this week is the British astronaut Tim Peake. Well done for sharing facts about him for homework. You can view them here.

This week we have been reading and writing about the planets of the Solar System:

We used chalk, pastels, glitter and collage to create these amazing Space pictures:

We learnt that astronauts eat wraps in Space because bread is too crumbly!
Here is a video of astronaut Chris Hadfield making a tasty tortilla snack!

 

Tim Peake must’ve liked the look of our tortillas, as he gave us a virtual thumbs up on our Twitter page!

We have also been using positional language to describe where planets, spaceships and aliens are!
