Hello, Year 1 children and parents. This is the homework for the Spring Festival Holidays. Parents: please help your children to do a little homework every day, and help them to do the work, but do not give them the answers! They will learn best if you encourage them to do the work themselves.

Maths

Use this hundred square to practice maths. Here are some games to play with it. Some are easy, some are difficult. Every day, choose a game that is suitable for your child.  
Picture
1. Point to a number and ask your child to tell you the number before or after it.
2. Point to a number and ask you child to add two, three, five or ten.
3. Point to a number and ask your child to take away two, three, five or ten.
4. Point to a number and ask your child if it is even (ends in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8) or odd (ends in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9).
5. Ask your child to count forward or backward in steps of two, three, four, five or ten.
6. You can use the 100 square to add or take away numbers between 10 and 20. For example, 87-15.

Go to the KS1 Maths Games page to practice. Try to play one learning game every day.
Use this clock to practice time. Your child can learn that one hour has 60 minutes, and learn that one is 5 minutes, two is 10 minutes. Your child can learn that the right side of the clock is past, and the left side is to.
Picture
Can you count the minutes on this clock? Which number is ten past? Which number is twenty-five to?

  1. Above is a picture of the sounds we are learning. Practice saying them and the words for them - for example, sh for shoe.
  2. Every child has a holiday diary. Please use it. Remember to write neatly on the line, and to use capital letters and full stops.
  3. Go to the KS1 English Games page to see games to practice English. Try to play one or more learning games every day. 
  4. You have library and reading books to take home. Please read them every day.
  5. Please write a comment for this blog in English. Tell me where you are, and what you are doing. Tell me if you are having fun. Remember to use capital letters and full stops. Remember to give your name and date. For example:
Lisa, 7/2/11
Dear Mr. Kohll,
Hello. I am on holiday in Beijing. I am having a lot of fun. Yesterday I went to a toy shop. I have a big teddy bear. My mother and father and I went to McDonald's yesterday.

Science

The children have been studying materials. You can practice pointing to things and asking them what they are made of. They should be able to use the English words for plastic, metal, paper, glass, fabric, wood, wax. Some may be able to use words for wool, cotton or different metals.
After the holiday the children will learn about plants. This holiday, they can practice looking at different types of plants and flowers and learning about them. Can they point to the leaves, flowers or roots of a plant?
Go to the KS1 Science Games page to practice. Try to play one game every day.
