Talk homework

This week we have been using Google Chrome to research different types of food packaging. The children have shown us that they can find the internet, use their typing skills to search on Google and can find examples of food packaging that they like. Continue to have a go at using your research skills at home.

If you would like to challenge yourself, please practise counting forwards AND backwards in steps of 2, 5 and 10!


Thank you to everyone who has been logging their reading on our new Boom Reader app! Please ensure that you are reading EVERY DAY with your child and logging it on the Boom Reader app.


The children will be tested on the ‘er’ sound family on Tuesday next week. Please continue to practise these over the weekend.


Please follow the link below to access LetterJoin, a website which is really useful to support children’s letter formation and cursive handwriting. You can see how we use cursive script by following the tutorials and you can also download handwriting sheets to support your child’s handwriting practice at home.

This week in Year 1

In Maths we have been learning how to find half of an object, shape and quantity. The children can talk about how a half is when something is split into two equal parts, and could fold shapes in half to show their understanding.

In PE this week we have been practising our running, throwing at a target and throwing and catching with a partner. The children showed some really promising skills ready for our Sports Day in June!

On Friday we really enjoyed using the internet to research different types of food packaging. Next week, we will be designing our own food packaging on Purple Mash using what we have found out from our research this week.
