This is an opportunity for your child to read a book to you. They can choose to read their book bag book that they will have from school. You can also visit the oxford owl website and choose a book of the same level for them to read to you.
Please ensure that you spend time talking about the words/vocabulary at the beginning of the book before you start and that you talk about the questions at the end of the book as well.

Watch the video closely and listen to what you are asked to do. The sounds will be pronounced for you the first you see them (listen to how to say each one) and then you will have the opportunity to say them yourself the second time through.
Complete this for Set 1, 2 and 3 sounds.
Repeat and watch the video a second time to practise any sounds you found tricky.
Spellings – dragon, once, where, here
These are just some of the words that we need to practise and know how to spell by the end of our time in year 1, plus a word linked to our topic. Take one word at a time and show children what the word looks like written down before they have a go at writing it. Talk about the pattern of letters or the sounds you can hear in that word. Cover the word up and ask the children to try and remember how it is spelt.
Repeat with all the other words. Practise any of the words they found tricky again.
Extension: try to put each of the words into a short sentence.

Online activity – use the following website: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
On here you will find many different maths based challenges. Today we would like you to look at the times table section and select any of the following options from the hit the answer: x2, x5 or x10.
Once you have selected any of these options you will be given a time to complete as many calculations as you can based on that skill. Think about all the work we have done on counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10 and use this to help you.
Remember you can play them as many times as you like – see if you can beat your own score!
We have spent some of this week looking at dragons so this afternoon we would like you to have a go at making your own dragon. We have given you some possible craft ideas on the sheet below but be as creative as you like.
Ask your adult to send a picture of your completed work into school using your class email address.
