A Tale to Tell home learning

Thank you from all in Year 1

Hello Dolphins and Turtles

Thank you to all the children who have prepared such fantastic Home Learning to share in class. We have enjoyed seeing your commitment to learning.

This week we had a visit from the Big Bad Wolf! He answered lots of questions that we had written during our Literacy lessons. By the end of his visit he didn’t seem so bad after all…



In Numeracy next week we will be continuing to be finding fractions of quantities.

In Literacy we will be carrying on looking at traditional tales.

Remember to keep logging on to Abacus and Bug Club as new learning is often added.

Happy Learning!

In Literacy we have been retelling the story of the Three Little Pigs. It has been so lovely to see such incredible story writing skills from all of Year 1.

In Numeracy, we have been counting in twos, drawing arrays and even using maths language such as ‘lots of’.

Next week we will carry on looking at the story of the Three Little Pigs and we will even write some questions for the Big Bad Wolf to answer!

In Numeracy next week we will be learning how to recognise halves and quarters.

We hope you have a fantastic weekend, Dolphins and Turtles.

Hello Dophins and Turtles

We hope you have enjoyed being back at school. We have loved getting to know you all and are excited about this term’s learning!

We have kick started our topic about traditional tales by building a new home for the Three Little Pigs! Of course The Big Bad Wolf had to come and blow them down!

Next week we will continue looking at traditional tales and discover more about this cheeky character, the Big Bad Wolf!

We will also be thinking about different types of homes around the world. Please try and bring in a photo of the outside of your home this week to support our topic work.

Have a great weekend everyone!
