expecting - think that something will happen

Talk about the word

Mrs Hargreaves was going to have another baby. She knew that she would have a baby.

  • There is a big, black cloud. I expect it will rain soon.
  • We are expecting Nana for tea.
  • I didn’t expect to see you here.

When might you expect something?

When might someone say…“Did you expect that?”

Agree or not? - Ask your child which sentences make sense. The ones in bold make sense. The ones not in bold don't make sense.

  • That was a surprise. I expected to see you.
  • We are expecting a baby last year.
  • I expect I will see you next week.
  • I expect that you will be hungry when you come home.

 

hope - want something to happen and it could happen

Talk about the word

The family wanted the baby to be strong, not weak like them.

  • I hope that you can walk quietly down the corridor.
  • Blake hoped that there would be beans for tea.
  • Jessica hoped that she would be learner of the week.

When have you hoped for something?

When might someone say…“Let’s hope so.”

Agree or not?

  • Jacob hoped that Mum would give him the biggest slice of cake.
  • I hope we lose the game.
  • Oscar hoped that his mum wouldn’t notice that it was bedtime.
  • Kaci hoped that she would never have sweets again.

Year One Homework

In Year One our main focus will be phonics, reading, vocabulary and number.

  • Phonics - Your child has a speed sound book. Check which sounds your child is learning each week and help him/her to practise them.
  • Reading – Your child will have three books:
  1. The Read Write Inc. book that they have read three times in school. Ask your child to show off their reading skills and read the book four more times at home. Rereading books will help your child to become a fluent reader.
  2. A Read Write Inc. Book Bag book. Your child has not read this book in school. Help your child to sound out the words. Prompt them with the phrases we use in school: Special Friends, Fred Talk, Read the word. Ask them to reread the book until they are fluent.
  3. A picture book from the class library chosen by your child. Please read this to your child. Your child is not expected to be able to read it themselves. Talk about the story and the pictures.
  • Vocabulary – Each week we will study a new picture book in school. We will read the book every day and help your child to develop their comprehension skills. The following week we will study eight words from the book. These words will be sent home. There will be definitions so you know which definition of the word we are teaching the children. Try to use these words as often as you can in your talk during the week. Write down some of the sentences that you have used in your child’s homework book. As your child becomes a more confident writer, ask them to write one or two sentences. Don’t worry if you do not have time to write in the book sometimes, but do sign to show us that you have verbally practised the words. YOUR CHILD IS NOT EXPECTED TO LEARN TO SPELL THESE WORDS.

This homework will start in the week beginning 14th September, 2020.

  • Number – Help your child to count forwards and backwards to and from 100. Complete the chart so that we can track your child’s progress towards this goal.

 

Homework will be stuck in books on Wednesdays. Please return the book to school by the following Monday.
