Monday 13th July
Happy last full week of the school year. This week we will be thinking about our time in Koalas and remembering all the happy times we have had as well as looking forward to the year ahead. For English this week I would like you to write a letter to Mrs Copson. Details are attached in the English section below to help you with this.
The maths and English lessons for the week are also uploaded below. The phonics videos this week are also just below. Have a good week.
Don't forget handwriting practice using the common exception words below as well as using the cursive letter formation powerpoint.
I hope you enjoy the content this week. Remember you can pick and mix the resources to suit you and your child.

Week beginning 13th July - Literacy and Numeracy Activities
Literacy - This week I would like the children to think about all the things they have done this year as well as thinking about what they are looking forward to. To do this on Monday they can fill in the 'My School Year Memory' sheet. I have included a file with a list of things we have done to help them with their memories. On Tuesday I would like the children to think about their own qualities using the 'I am an amazing person' sentence starters. They can also begin to fill in their 'For My New Teacher' booklet. On Wednesday they will then be ready to write a draft letter to Mrs Copson. I have included a powerpoint relevant for year 1s for writing informal letters and some letter writing templates. On Thursday they should then be ready to write up their letters to Mrs Copson and if time draw a picture of themselves or of an activity that they enjoy. In school on Friday they are going to be writing dinosaur stories with Mrs Liversidge as we have done lots of research into dinosaurs this term. If the children would like to have a go at writing a story on Friday I'd love to see what they come up with (it doesn't have to be dinosaur based !). I will include a story writing plan in the documents below. If time allows during the week you don't have to leave this until Friday. It can be done a little bit at a time over the week.
Numeracy - This week's maths has a focus on playing games and investigating - perfect as we wind down to the end of term. On Monday we will start by recognising odd and even numbers followed on Tuesday by counting up in 3s and finding patterns. On Wednesday we will investigate the number of legs on groups of animals and finding different ways of making the number 12. Thursday is a game of pairs for practising number bonds to 10, 20 or 100. Friday is another Noah's ark investigation using jumps along a number line.
In computing this term we would have been starting to do coding. I have set a 2do on Purple Mash that is a great introduction to block coding called Fun with Fish. If the children get on well with this there is an extra coding activity called Snail Race.
It would be great if the children have a go at these activities. All is explained in the videos within the activity. For each challenge the children will watch a video that explains what they need to do. If anyone is having trouble accessing Purple Mash please contact school via email and we will advise how to solve any problems.
To continue our Grantham's Got Talent topic I would like you to find out about someone famous who came from Grantham. Her name was Margaret Thatcher. There are links to Ducksters website page about her and a Newsround video below. There is also a powerpoint attached.
Can you write a list of what Margaret Thatcher is famous for?
