Year 1 Foxes
Welcome to the Foxes class page of 2020!
Foxes have lots of fun working hard, learning and playing together.
Our teachers are Mrs Griffiths and Mrs Humpleby and our teaching assistant is Miss Haythorne.
FROM NEXT MONDAY (19th October) WE WILL NO LONGER USE THIS WEBSITE FOR CLASS INFORMATION. PLEASE USE CLASSDOJO INSTEAD.
Week Beginning 12.10.2020
Only two weeks until half-term. The children have been busy learning, and already look like old hands in Year 1! Thankyou to everyone that has already signed up to ClassDojo. Please accept the link you have been sent if you haven't done so yet.
Here is what we will be learning this week.
Phonics: We are learning the following new sounds: ai j oa ie ee or. Try adding these new sounds to the ones that we have already learnt and see which words you can come up with (s a t p i n ck e h r m d g o u l f b). Have a look on YouTube for the songs and stories to go with each sound.
English: We are learning this poem :
When I was One,
I had just begun.
When I was Two,
I was nearly new.
When I was Three
I was hardly me.
When I was Four,
I was not much more.
When I was Five,
I was just alive.
But now I am Six,
I'm as clever as clever,
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.
by A.A. Milne
See if your child can recite it with you. We are making rhyming strings e.g. one, begun, fun, run etc. We are learning to read and write the number words up to ten, and writing short sentences using the words I and was.
Maths: We are introducing the children to the part-part-whole model. Have a look here for how to use it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKiZjYdWPXw. Make one at home, and use beads, counters or coins to make your own examples. We are then using this model to help us make simple addition equations such as 2 + 3 = 5. These are a couple of websites that might be fun to try:
Topic: The children are writing their own algorithm for a simple personal hygiene routine such as cleaning their teeth. Can you make one together? An algorithm is a number of actions that have to be done in a particular order. Think about all the different things we do to stay healthy such as getting enough rest and exercise, eating healthily and keeping clean. We are finishing our 'Bounce Back' curriculum this week, reflecting on who we are grateful for and who can help us when thing feel tricky.
Reading- Keep using the Oxford Owls site to find books you can read together. The log in is pupil1234 and the password is Year 1.

English: We are continuing to look at the story Once There Were Giants by Martin Waddell. This is the Youtube link to listen to the story at home (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STwCfjVajys). This week we will be thinking about the things that we used to do as a baby that we may not still do. Can you write a sentence using the words "I can..."
