We are returning to Education City today to apply our understanding of today's focus - the alternative pronunciation of the digraph 'ie'. 


This week we are going to return to measurement - specifically looking at measuring length and height.


Today's lesson focus is solving problems involving length by adding.


1. Warm up your Maths brain with the BBC Supermovers - The 2 Times Table with Bridget the Lioness!


2. Work through the video below. Remember to pause the video when prompted and discuss your thinking with a grown up at home.


3. Complete the worksheet attached. Remember you can use objects, such as cubes or Lego pieces to help with the addition calculations.


If you are unable to print the worksheet, work through the problems on screen and write down your answers on your own sheet of paper. Remember you can use objects, such as cubes or Lego pieces to help with the addition calculations.

Welcome to World Book Day!

Our school theme this year is 'Adventure' and in Year 1 we are going to use the fabulous story, 'The Pirates Next Door' by Jonny Duddle.


Often, the best way to hear a story being read is listening to the author so, I would like you to start today by watching the attached video (Jonny Duddle performs this brilliantly!) By the end of it, I'm sure you'll be speaking like a pirate too!


After you have enjoyed the story, why not enjoy some pirate related activities? I have attached a sheet of suggestions (although I'm sure you will be able to think of plenty of your own!)


Ultimately, today is about celebrating and enjoying the wonderful world of books - why not find your favourite story from the book shelf and snuggle up with someone at home and share it together? The grown up looking after you may also like to share their favourite book with you.


Remember, we also have our Teams meeting today at 1.30pm. Those of you at home, hopefully you are able to join us today and share the name of your favourite book with the rest of the class (you might even like to dress up for the occasion...I wonder if we will have a visit from the Gruffalo this week?!)


Have a wonderful World Book Day everyone and I look forward to sharing a little part of the day with you this afternoon!
