Homework for Friday 18th September
This week we have been learning letter blends, where two letters work together to make a new sound. For homework can you find some things that begin with the sh sound. Take a picture of one and upload it to our class dojo page for me to see! If you haven't joined yet I have sent an invitation to your email address.
We have also tried counting objects to ten, keep practising this at home. Ask your child to find or bring you groups of objects up to ten. For example, can you find me 6 spoons? Can you bring me 4 socks? Can you make a group to ten crayons. Again take a picture and send it to me via class dojo.
Have a lovely weekend year 1! I'm looking forward to seeing you all again on Monday!

A huge welcome to everyone in Year 1!!!
I am really looking forward to working with you this year. You have all worked really hard this week and I am very impressed with your skills!!!
Each week I will set a phonics/spelling activity and a maths activity for homework. These will reinforce what we have been doing in school.
This week I would like everyone to find 3 things at home that begin with the sound h. Please don't bring your items into school. Please take a photograph of your things and email it to me at
For maths you need to find 10 objects at home and then sort these into groups. Ideas for this could be; lego/ duplo bricks grouped according to colour or size, animals or soft toys grouped according to type or colour, packets or tins sorted into shape or socks sorted into colour or pattern.
