Welcome to Purple Class
Mrs Banyard, Mrs Gee, Mrs Johnson
Hello everyone, we have been really trying to build our knowledge of Common Exception Words (the ones that occur a lot in books but can't be sounded out easily).
Here are the ones we have done so far. Can you read them? Can you spell them?
We have started our work on addition and subtraction.
We used part whole models to find which numbers we could add together and find a total.
We also started with a whole number and split it into two parts.
Finally we went on to do some 'reasoning' with part whole models by finding the missing parts.

Hello everyone. We hope you are staying safe and well. Follow the link to Blue Class page for the activities you can try.
In maths we are learning about fact families or related facts. In other words all of the additions and subtractions that you can make using one set of numbers.
6 + 4 = 10
4 + 6 = 10
10 - 4 = 6
10 - 6 = 4
We will do this using ten frames, part whole models and bar models wit lots of equipment to help us!
Welcome to Year 1!
We hope you have had a lovely summer holiday!
We will be spending the first few days getting to know our new teacher and classroom.
Our topic is “Castles and Knights.” We will be learning all about the history of Castles, the role of Knights and visiting Tutbury Castle on Thursday 26th September. Keep checking for photo updates of the lovely practical activities available to the children each week to support their transition into Year 1.
W/C 7-10-19 and 14-10-19
We will be working around The Knight Who Wouldn’t Fight. English will continue focusing on securing blending and segmenting with lots of vocabulary development. Maths will be looking at 2d and 3D shapes and using these to build castles as well as junk modelling. We will also be designing and making our own moving dragon!
W/c 23-09-19 and 30-09-19
The next two weeks we are reading The Boy Who Grew Dragons. In English we will be looking in detail at making predictions about what we read. We will continue building our sight recognition of common exception words and using these to build and write sentences. In maths we will be almost finishing our work on place value by identifying missing numbers when counting forwards and backwards as well as using number lines and checking and comparing numbers which are greater and less than each other.
Don’t forget we are off to Tutbury Castle Thursday 26th September!
Please check your recycling!
We still want your junk modelling materials especially tubes such as kitchen roll inners and pringles boxes (sorry we are not allowed to use toilet rolls).
9-9-19 & 16-9-19
The next two weeks our activities will be linked the story “Zog” by Julia Donaldson. In English we will be introducing a big emphasis on Handwriting focusing on Curly Caterpillar letters, recapping everything the children have remembered from Phonics in FS2, retelling the story through pictures and drama as well as remembering and writing down sentences linked to the story.
In Maths we will be sorting and working within place value to 10 and beyond for rose children who can. They will be introduced to choosing their own level of challenging activities.
children have been asked to bring in a sock to design and make their own Dragon Sock puppet as well as 3D Castle junk model making and learning how to log on and use Purple Mash safely.
PE- Our PE days are Wednesday’s and Thursdays. Please ensure that PE kits are in school on these days. It is a good idea to keep a PE kit in school all week. Children can keep these on their coat pegs in the corridor.
Reading – Each child has a book and a reading record. When they have read with an adult at home please can an adult write in their reading record with the date, book title and any comments about their reading- these will be checked every Monday by Mrs Banyard. When reading with your child, please try to ask them questions about the book they have read, comprehension skills are very important. Your child can change their book when they are ready, but please stick to the book band colour they have been given.
We are checking the children's knowledge of the 'high frequency' or 'common exception' words on the key word lists. You will get a list of some of the words they are unsure of.
How can you help?
