Finish your story about the witch, then use the spellings in your reading record to check any words you might have mis-spelt.

Can you ask your parents to give you some coins (remember to return them!)? How much money is there altogether?
Continue with your project work.

This week we would like you to write a similar story to Room on the Broom, about a witch who gets into trouble. Perhaps she has to make a magic spell, using a broken cauldron? Perhaps she wants a new cat for her broomstick but can only find dogs?!
Here are some pictures to help with your ideas:
Draw a story map as a plan for your new story about the witch, with ideas for words and sentences you could use. Talk your story through with an adult.
Watch this video about doubling and halving:
Now complete this task:
3 + 6 + 7 =
5 + 3 + 5 =
4 + 9 + 6 =
3 + 3 + 7 =
4 + 8 + 6 =
2 + 6 + 8 =
6 + 6 + 4 =

Please start your project work on Amazing Adventures, using the Julia Donaldson books. Mrs Brash has left some ideas for you on the Year 1 page!
Literacy writing task
Day 1: Look at the scene above from 'Room on the broom.' Can you write about what you can see, describing the mountains, trees and sky? Use interesting words to describe what you can see as well as anything you can imagine hearing and feeling.
Day 2: Describe what you think is going to happen in this story. Where do you think the witch is flying to? What do you think might be in her cauldron? Will there be room left on her broom for other people or animals? Who might they be?
Day 3: read the full story of Room on the Broom, or listen to the following clip if you don't have the book:
We would like you to rewrite the story in your own words. You can change details such as characters or the ending.
This week we are looking at partitioning.
Please practise your number skills with numbers to 20, using the following videos and lessons:
In addition, we have the following reading and numeracy websites which will help you continue with your learning whilst you are off school. If you have forgotten your login details, please email the Year 1 team or call Mr Darling using the school phone number.
Reading - Bug club and myON
We would like you to engage in reading daily with your child. The children should be reading for at least 20 minutes a day. This can be from their reading book sent home from class, a book that they have at home, using Bug Club or myON.
Your child's class teacher will provide you with log in details for your child. Please access your account via the link here:
Timestables - TTRockstars and Numbots
Please encourage your children to practise their timetables daily. This doesn't have to be a laboured activity but simply when walking to school asking them a few questions related to the timestable they are learning. All of the children also have access to TTrockstars, this is an online app which allows the children to practice their timetables and related division facts. They can earn coins from correct answers to update and personalise their characters as well as battle with other children in their class and in Mission Grove.
Numbots helps them to practise their basic but essential number facts and skills such as number bonds.
