# Year 1 Homework

## 16 October 2015

Posted on Friday 16 October 2015 by

The homework this week is talk time and is due in on Wednesday 21 October:

Should everybody be able to go on holiday?

Discuss reasons why people may not be able to go on holiday. Does your child think this is fair? Is a holiday a necessity or a luxury? How might someone feel if they can’t go on holiday?

There is much more to discuss than the above but I hope it acts as a starting point for your conversations. Why not get the whole family involved over dinner time, or ask opinions from relatives by calling or emailing them?

The homework this week is practice makes perfect and is due in on Wednesday 07 September.

I can rapidly recall my number bonds to 10.

Number bonds to 10 are two numbers which add up to 10: 3 + 7 = 10, 4 + 6 = 10, etc. These number facts should be instant rather than worked out.

We have been doing a lot of practice on number bonds to 10 this week. We have been looking at why numbers make 10 so that children have a deep understanding of this rather than just memorising facts. Hopefully, many of the number bonds have been remembered due to lots of repetitive practice, but if your child is struggling to rapidly recall the numbers which make 10, use physical objects to demonstrate it. Lots of practice doing so should embed the facts into your child’s memory!  Take a look at Class News on the website to see the ways we’ve been using in class, too!

The homework this week is talk time and is due in on Wednesday 30 September.

I can talk to my family (especially older family members) about what holidays were like when they were my age.

Here are some questions you could ask:

• What holidays did you go on when you were my age?
• How did you get to your holiday destination?
• What did you do when you were on holiday?
• What did you pack?
• Was the food that you ate different on holidays?
• What things are different and what things are the same?
• Do you have any evidence of the holidays that you went on when you were my age? This could be photographs, postcards, letters.

## A note on the spellings from last week

Posted on Sunday 20 September 2015 by Mr Roundtree

The spellings were given before phonics groups had been set. Both year 1 and 2 were set the same spellings for this week so do not worry if your child found these spellings challenging. As phonics groups have now been set up, spellings will be based on sounds from the phonics group which your child is in.

The homework this week is creative and is due in on Wednesday 23 September.

I can show what I know about holidays.

This is a chance to show what your child already knows about holidays before we begin our new topic.
Where do people go on holiday? Why do they go? What do they do there? Is a holiday always a good thing?

Encourage your child to be as creative as they can be!

This week’s whole school homework involves completing the pupil health questionnaire sent home with your child.

I can share my views about health.

This annual questionnaire has been compiled in consultation with our school council and helps us to find out pupil views on some of our key health issues at school. Please support your child to complete the health questionnaire by discussing these issues.  The questionnaire should be returned to your class teacher by Wednesday 15 July.
