This is a suggested timetable for children in class 1:
Daily reading of a reading book, Active Learn or a book from home.
30 minutes of Phonics per day
30-40 minutes of Maths
30-40 minutes writing activity based on English or Topic.
In YR we are concentrating on capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Word should be spelt using our phonics knowledge. Don't forget to use your robot arms to segment words to spell them.
In Y1 we can already use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Y1 can also write questions and sentences which have exclamation marks. Y1 are now looking at using "and, but or because" to make sentences more interesting. Recently we have been using adjectives to make sentences more interesting. e.g. "I saw an elephant." could be "I saw a huge grey elephant looking at me with his massive eyes!"
