Bridgegate Homework: Friday, April 20th

Maths and Literacy– Please encourage your child to complete page 24-25 in the First Mental Arithmetic booklet and page 16 in the Early Comprehension booklet. The homework the Year One Team have set is aimed at consolidating 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.

Spellings We will be testing the children’s spellings on Tuesday, based on the sheet that has been provided. New spellings will be handed out once the children have been tested. Please support your child with their list spellings. Practising each spelling using the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method will award your child with confidence for the Spelling Quiz every Tuesday.

The Year One Team have also sent home three sound sheets this week, for the children to practice their focused sounds at home. To support your child with their phonics, please encourage them to independently sound each picture out and complete a ‘silly sentence’ when they have finished, using the words they have spelt.

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.

Phonics – Thank you to those who attended the Phonics Screening Check meeting this week, The Year One Team hope you found it of use but as always, please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions that you may have. As a team, we have sent home an answer sheet in order for you to score your child’s answers once the test provided has been completed. Can these please be returned to school within the first week back, after Easter. If you are unsure as to the level of guidance to provide to your child, we encourage you to completely allow them to direct their learning by not intervening however tempting it my be! For a true reflection, simply encourage your child to segment the word and blend to read the word. They may apply sound buttons, using their fingers and they also may ‘self-correct’ if they have recognised the word they have read does not sound right after a first attempt. Thank you very much and should you require any further guidance, the following link hopefully will be of use:

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.
