Week Seven

Hello Year One,


We hope you are keeping well.

Did you enjoy thinking up a story about another world at the top of the beanstalk? We hope you liked the video of Ms James showing you how to draw a face. Ms James has been drawing lots of faces at home and her son has had a go too. Mrs Grindrod (who is terrible at drawing) and her daughter followed the video and had a try at drawing a face too. This week Miss Tinley has used her DT skills to make a bird box for her garden!


If you'd like to share your artwork we would love to see them on our twitter page @lyppardyear1 or @lyppardschool.

We would like you to have a go at some rhyming challenges this week just like the rhymes in "Oi Frog". You have to make an animal rhyme with something it sits on! Choose your favourite animal. Can you make it sit on something that rhymes, like cats sit on hats. How many silly rhymes can you make?

Here is Mrs Merrylegs to explain.

In the video below, Jim Field the illustrator of the story Oi Frog, shows you how to draw Oi Frog. Follow the video, have a go and tweet us your artwork! Why don't you try drawing the animal that you've written some rhyming words for!


Please recap the sounds below.



In the spring term children learnt to subtract numbers, within 20, crossing the 10. Children learnt how to represent this using concrete manipulatives and pictorially. Ten frames and number lines are particularly useful to model the structure of this strategy. They also learnt the different structures of subtraction (taking away, partitioning, and difference). One of the most difficult concepts for children is finding the difference where they subtract to calculate how many more.
