Homework 2.7.21

We have had a super exciting week this week in the Positive Penguins! The sun has been shining, and the children had huge smiles on their faces for our seaside day on Wednesday! If you would like to see more pictures and information regarding the day, please see Greenside Primary Schools Facebook page!

 

This week, we have been learning more about the seaside; looking at Google Earth to find our closest seaside - which is in fact Southport! We learnt about the different symbols you can find on maps, we have began designing our Lighthouses (which we will be making next week!) and we have begun writing recounts all about our seaside day on Wednesday! It has been a busy one indeed. 

 

Spelling: Phonics

Please refer to the spelling list sent home with your child on Monday (check they can read them too).

 

Maths Year 1: 

I have assigned some activities on Mathletics, recapping our previous Place Value to 100 unit. Please try you best to complete these! 

 

Maths Year 2:

I have assigned some activities on Mathletics, recapping our previous unit of work: Fraction's. Please try to complete these! 

 

Reading Books

The teachers have collected in reading books and planners this week in preparation for the next academic school year. Please use bug club as an alternative to read with your child, where the book levels have been updated to match your child's current reading level. The children have also been doing lots of fabulous reading in school with myself and Miss Nicholas!

Any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

 

Reminder

Please continue to encourage your child to access the online learning platforms available to them where possible. These are Spelling ShedBug ClubNumbotsMathletics and Education City

 

One more week to go Penguins! Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the glorious sunshine!

Homework 25.6.2021

 

Spelling: Phonics

Please refer to your child's planner for this weeks list of spellings. More information regarding our weekly spellings you can find below. 

 

There have been few concerns raised over recent weeks regarding the difficulty of some of the weekly spellings. Once children get to the end of their set 3 sounds, we introduce them to the regular suffixes 'tion, tious and cious' as outlined in the Read Write Inc. phonics scheme followed in school. These suffixes are some of the most common in the English language therefore we feel it is important that children can read these words. Please support your child in learning to read these words. If you feel they are able to do so, please challenge them in writing these words too. 

 

You will also find in your child's book bag highlighted year 1 common exception words. The words highlighted are those which your child can't yet spell. Please take some time over the next couple of weeks to practise the spelling of these words. If you feel your child needs an additional challenge, please feel free to expose them to some of their year 2 words (or year 3) in preparation for next year. You can find these below. 

 

Design a Bee Garden 

 

This week we would like your child to have a go at the Big Bee Challenge being run by BBC Radio 2. The competition is a fun and creative way to learn more about bees and other insects which help provide much of the food that we eat. Please see the link below, and the letters sent home today for more information. 

 

*FROGS danceathon letters will come home with the children on Monday due to the misplacing of letters at the end of the day today! Apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

 

Have a lovely weekend, 

 

Miss Robinson

Homework 11/6/21

 

Spelling: Common Exception Words

As we are coming to the end of year 1 and 2, it is expected that your child can read and write all their common exception words. Please have a go and reading and writing each of the words in the documents (Y1 and Y2) attached. If you feel your child may need a little more support with this, choose one of the groups to focus on. 

 

Year 2: have a go at reading the first group of the year 2 common exception words below.

Challenge: can you spell these too?

 

Maths: Mathletics (logins given- please ask if you need them again)

We have unlocked some more units on our online platform Mathletics. Please try to complete the Multiplication and Division (Groups, Grouping in Twos, Grouping in Fives, Grouping in Tens, Share the Treasure) and Fractions units (Half, Is It Half?). Doing a bit of Mathletics weekly even when it is not set for homework is a great way to keep improving your Maths skills. Let's see how many gold bars we can earn for completing activities this week!

Homework 14.5.2021

 

This week we have enjoyed learning more about multiplication in Maths (2s, 5s and 10s). We have been doing more work on The Dinosaur's Diary in English (a book by Julia Donaldson) and we loved Pyjamarama Day where we enjoyed stories and had a lovely hot chocolate treat. 

 

Maths: This week we would like you explore Numbots. I wonder which robot level you will reach this week? Will you earn enough points to customise your robot? Will we win most class points in our weekly Numbots competition against Reception and KS1 classes?

Little and often works best for Numbots as there are many levels to work through. Level difficulty progresses as your child completes the previous level so you might find they whizz through the first levels. You have been given all of your child's logins for online platforms but if you need them again just ask.

 

Phonics: Choose from the 3 Challenge levels this week. See below. Challenge 1 is the easiest and Challenge 3 is the most tricky. Don't worry if you don't have access to a printer- you could draw out the task on paper. Paper homework tasks may now be brought into school or sent in via the tier group email as before. 

 

Any queries regarding this weeks homework, please don't hesitate to get in touch. 

 

Have a lovely weekend.

Spelling: Please complete some activities on Spelling Shed. Will our class win top Spelling Shed points this week... fingers crossed!

 

Maths: Have a go at completing the counting in 5s sheet attached. If you can't print out, you could write the sequences down on paper. This is one of our instant recall targets this half term called 'KIRFs' so keep rehearsing your 5s forwards and backwards whenever you can! 

 

 

Well done for all your hard work this week Penguins! Keep it up!

Homework 04.12.2020

 

What an exciting week we have had in year 1 and 2! Our class elf from The North Pole has come to see us. He has been up to all sorts of mischief: making a hole in our classroom ceiling, making a swing out of a toilet roll tube and stealing our spanish guitars from our display and trying to play them! 

 

During maths this week we have mastered our subtraction unit of work (Y1) and addition of 2-2digit numbers (Y2)! We are also doing amazing with our phonics and are loving the story, The Squirrels Who Squabbled, in English. We have been tumbling, climbing and jumping in Gymnastics and learning all about the 7 continents and 5 oceans in Geography! We have started to practice our songs for our Christmas performance too...

 

Homework for this week: 

 

Year 1 Maths: This week we would like you to complete the subtraction task attached. If you don't have access to a printer, you can simply use the screen and write down you number sentences on paper. There is more information regarding the task on the sheet attached below. 

 

Year 1 Phonics: Can you match the lower case letter to it's capital letter? Challenge: Can you practise writing these? Don't worry if you don't have access to a printer as you can still practise writing these letters on paper. More information regarding the task attached on the sheet.

 

Year 2 Maths: I have assigned a Y1 subtraction task recap this week on Education City, ready for beginning our new unit of work next week. Please log on and watch the Learn Screen video recapping how to take away. Then, work through the activities set to recap knowledge of taking 1 digit away from 2 digit numbers. This will make sure we are ready for next week's learning.

 

Year 2 Spelling: A new list is available on Spelling Shed and there is also a paper version to download and print.

Well done for all of your hard work with your homework last week Penguins! I can already see lots of improvements with our spellings!

Homework Friday 20th November

 

Please complete by Wednesday 25th November

 

Thank you once again for sending in photos and updates of last week's homework. You did so well! 

 

Year 1 Maths: We are continuing to learn and quickly recall addition facts to 10. Your homework is to log onto Numbots (login already given on login sheet) and see how far you can progress through the robot levels. It starts easy and builds up but you can only unlock more levels once you can complete the current level you are on. We would love to hear how far you have got. Little and often is best for Numbots to keep mental skills sharp so it's a good one to do if you have a spare 5-10 minutes here and there. 

 

Year 1 Spelling and Reading: see attached homework called Common Exception Words. The instructions for the task are on the sheet. 

 

Year 2 Maths: This week we have been working hard with our addition and subtraction of 1-digit numbers from a 2 digit number. We have been using a numberline to help us count our jumps, and a hundred square to help us find the next ten. If you have any problems or questions regarding the method, please don't hesitate to get in touch. 

 

Year 2 Phonics: With our Phonics screening check only round the corner, please have a go at completing the mock test attached below. There are a series of real and nonsense words you child your child will need to read. Try to encourage them to decode, then blend the words. It's the last push!!

 

Please let us know if you are having any issues accessing or completing the homework tasks. 

 

Have a lovely weekend!

Homework Friday 13th November 2020

 

Please complete by Wednesday 18th November

 

Thank you for sending in photos of last week's homework. You are all superstars! Next week we will be giving out Mathletics certificates and I'm sure there will be lots! 

 

 

Y1 Maths: We are learning to work out addition facts to 10. Play the game below to practise this skill. If you can complete the task easily, your next challenge is to become so fast that your addition answers are instant! If you are not yet instant with your addition recall then using counters or fingers is fine to start with whilst you learn the facts. 

 

Y1 and 2 Phonics: We have been working on the split sounds a-e, i-e and o-e as in make, smile and home. This will be revision for my year 2 children. Please complete the attached sheet writing words with split sounds. Your child may need a little more support with this task as this is a new skill working with the split sounds and they may need some help to work out what each picture is (answers for parents are: bike, time, bite, smile, slime, ride, snake, rake, skate, grape, shave, plate, bone, cone, rope, smoke, stone and phone). 

 

Y2 Maths: This week we have been working very hard learning about adding and subtracting 10s. Please complete the sheet attached below. If you do not have access to a printer, you can use an online hundred square and complete the number tracks. 

 

Please let us know if you are having any issues accessing or completing the homework tasks. 

 

Have a lovely weekend!

Homework for Friday 6th November 2020. 

Please complete by Wednesday 11th November. 

 

Y1 Maths: We have assigned some activities on Mathletics linked to our current learning on addition within 10. 

 

Y1 Phonics: Treasure or Fake Words Activity. Children can cut out the coins (refining those scissor skills!) and then place or stick them on the treasure chest or bin depending on if the word if real (treasure) or a nonsense word (bin). If you don't have access to a printer then you could easily adapt by writing the words on paper and cutting out and placing in two groups. Please send us a photo of the activity completed via the tier group email. 

 

Y2 Maths: I assigned some activities on Mathletics based around our most recent units of work. Please try to work through as many as possible smiley

 

Y2 Phonics: Phonics screening check is fast approaching! We have looked again at split e sounds this week e.g. a-e -> cake (they'll be able to explain it to you). These sounds are difficult to spot without the sound buttons underneath so we are encouraging the children to identify these words in normal text. There is a phoneme spotter task where the children have to read and spot words with the split e sounds and write them down. 

 

Please let us know if you are having any issues accessing or completing the homework tasks. 

 

Have a fabulous weekend!

Homework Friday 2nd October 2020

Maths: please log into Mathletics and complete the next assigned activities from our place value unit. 

 

School Council: please encourage your child to apply for the role of Year 1/2 School Councillor and fill out their nomination form, ready for our ballot in a couple of weeks. The School Council representatives in each year group who are elected will meet with Mrs Fuller through the year (virtually or in person in line with Covid-19 safety measures) to share class ideas and views on different school matters. It is a very special job indeed! Your child could either do some of the writing themselves on the form if they are able to or they could tell you their ideas and you could write/type for them. 

 

Please return your nominations via the tier group email (either attach a typed version or a photo of the written version). 

 

Please let us know if you are having an issues accessing or completing the homework tasks or don't have access to a printer.
