# Year 1 Weekly English and Maths – 08/06/2020

## English

In English, we will spend one day reading and comprehending a text; one day on spelling, one day on grammar, one day completing a short writing activity and one day focusing on Lexia.

### Reading and Comprehension – The Old Toy Room

Share the story with your child. Then, discuss the questions from The Old Toy Room Comprehension PowerPoint. There is no need to record your child’s answers.

Capital letters and Full Stops Writing Activity

Read The Old Toy Room story. Choose your favourite toy from home and draw a picture of it in the box provided. Then, write a sentence to describe your toy. What does it look like? What is it made out of? What game do you play with it?

### What I’m Looking For:

• Capital letter at the start of each sentence
• Full stop at the end of each sentence
• Gaps between words
• Use sound mats to help with spelling

Children should spend 20 minutes at least three times per week using Lexia. Children should take part in phonics and spelling daily using Ruth Miskin YouTube Videos.
