Working together, learning together

Good morning Year 1.


English – In our story this week ‘The Jolly Postman or other people’s letters’ Goldilocks receives a card from baby Bear. I want you to make and write a card for someone. It could be someone in your house, a friend or a neighbour. Make sure you set it out correctly:
– Use To or Dear to start the card
– Write a nice message. It could about a birthday, to get well soon, to say how much you miss someone or to thank them for something.
– Finish your card with Love or From and your name.


Maths – Investigate these statements and tell me if they are true or false in the comments below.
1. If you add two even numbers, the answer will be even.
2. If you add two odd numbers together, the answer will be odd.
3. If you add an odd and an even number, the answer will be odd.
Remember you can practise your odd and even numbers by playing this game:


Phonics – Practise the two codes /e/ and /ea/. Can you remember where we find each piece of code, the beginning, middle or end?

Geography – Everybody has a different address, which is where we live. Each part of your address tells us something different:

– The name or number of the house (Swalwell Primary School)
– The street you live on (South View Terrace)
– The town or city you live in (Swalwell)
– The county you live in (Tyne and Wear)
-The postcode which is two codes. The first is the county area and the second is the area in your town. (NE16 3HZ)


I would like you to learn your own address. This is important for a number of reasons, including writing letters, if you get lost or if you want to invite a friend round.


Have a great day!

Mrs Leaver
