Bridgegate Homework: Friday, February 16th

Maths and Literacy– Using the First Mental Arithmetic booklet and the Early Comprehension booklet, please encourage your child to complete page 10-11 in the First Mental Arithmetic booklet and page 10 in the Early Comprehension booklet. The homework the Year One Team have set is aimed to consolidate your child’s knowledge of what they have been focusing on in class. Please could you support your child to practice their independent skills when they are completing their homework. Thank you!

The Year One Team feel it is important that Bridgegate have the chance to rest during the half term and therefore, we will not be setting any spellings or sound sheets home for the children to complete this week.

On return to school, the children will be exploring their new topic theme, ‘Animals and their Habitats’, within the Bridgegate’s unique Transdiciplinary Theme, ‘Sharing the Planet’. If possible, during the half term please encourage your child to research their favourite animal and prepare them to bring either a photograph, drawing or stuffed toy to represent their choice of animal for the first day back at school. In doing so, this will prepare the children for their new topic and will enthuse their learning for when they return to school.

Reading – Please continue to read with your child every night and please may you record this in your child’s Reading Record. Reading to your child is also very beneficial, even if they are accomplished readers, as this increases their vocabulary and fosters a love of reading for pleasure.

The blog is full of ideas and online games that really help your child consolidate their learning and access new learning in the following weeks, so please check the blog for regular updates, homework ideas and website links.

Thank you for the hard work and effort that you all put in to working with your child at home.

The Year 1 Team.
