Year 1 – Wednesday’s Home Learning

Year 1 Home learning for Wednesday 1st July – Sport Theme

Subject focus What we need to learn: How we might learn it:
English  Reading Read common exception words, noting unusual correspondences between spelling and sound and where these occur in the word. Tricky Word Treasure Hunt – Pick a book you can read together or one your child can read independently. As you read it, can you find and read the common exception words (see attached sheet). Highlight/colour every common exception word you read and find – you get 1 point for a year 1 word and 2 points for a year 2 word. Discuss why the words were tricky and you can always continue this activity with another book.
Writing Using a capital letter for names of people, places, the days of the week, and the personal pronoun ‘I’. Ask a grown up to help you find out about Andy Murray (there is some information attached but you may like to carry out your own research with support).  Once you know who is, what he does and some interesting facts, we would like you to produce an informative fact file about him.  Remember to include headings and key information e.g. name, age, place of birth, famous for, interesting facts etc. and to think carefully about your punctuation and handwriting.
Maths Use the language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least.

Using your number cards that you made on Monday…

Pick up two number cards e.g. 53   and  72. 

Then use the following speaking frame to describe the relationship between the numbers e.g. 

72 is more than 53.  53 is less than 72.
