Reading in the Record Breakers
Reading is the heart of our Year 1 Classroom. Each child has their own reading bag with 3 books for them to enjoy at home.
1. Their Ditty book linked to the sounds they know in Read Write Inc.
2. Their stage book to improve their speed and fluency.
3. Their Reading for Pleasure book to encourage the enjoyment of reading at home.
Please make sure you listen to your child read this is so important to their development.
If your child is unable to attend school due to isolation work will be set for them in line with the work completed in school.
You can send your childs work straight to Miss Mc Entee via our bubble email Year_1@stmichaelscatholicprimary.co.uk
Please read the following document which outlines our Home learning procedure.

Computing - Keeping safe online:

We love learning new sounds in phonics as this helps us with our reading!
This half term we are:
- counting in 1s and 2s from any given number forwards & backwards.
- saying one more/one less than a number e.g. 1 more than 17 is 18 (we know more than means adding one) 1 less than 52 is 51 (less means fewer/take away).
- recalling number bonds to 10.
- counting in 1s and 2s forwards and backwards from any number (up to 100).
Autumn 1 - All about me and where I live!
We have been looking at a video clip of 'Bubbles' and talking about describing the beach where the little girl was walking along and found some bubbles.
We used our senses to explore what we could see about the beach in the hear, what we could hear and how the sand would feel. We did this by have a tuff tray of sand and using our hands to feel to help us describe what the sand felt like.
Geography - Where do I live? Where is our school?
We have been looking at where we live and what is in our local area. We have been using google maps to find where our house is from aerial view. We have also been giving instructions using positional language (go forwards, backwards, turn left & turn right) of how to find our house when using google maps.
We have explored our school by google maps and looking at aerial view photos of our school. We have begun to develop our map skills by drawing a map of how we can get from one area in our playground to another.
We have started to identify the four countries of the united Kingdom England,Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and name their capital city.
Science - My body and senses
We have been naming parts of the body we can see and cannot see.
We have been investigating and carrying out simple tests on using out senses. We have used blindfolds to paint pictures like the artist Lisa Fittipaldi. This helped us realise how much people who are blind/have a sight impairment feel and how much they rely on using their sense of touch.
In English we have been working on saying aloud simple sentences out loud. We have been practising clapping the rhythm of the sentences out in different voices e.g. singing, robot etc numerous times before writing the sentences down. Please practise this at home with children.
We have also been doing lots of reading and exploring our new book corner. Children have been enjoying paired reading and encouraging each other to practice reading aloud.
