# Year 1 - Ash & Chestnut

 IPC Homework Project- Autumn 2 Our IPC (International Primary Curriculum) topic this half term is The Magic Toymaker! We will be learning all about toys from the past and how things have changed since then. We will be testing the materials toys are made from in Science and finding out about different toys from around the world in Geography. We are even going to be making our own toy Christmas train!   Your homework challenge this half term is to create your very own cup and ball game!   The Cup and Ball was very popular in France during the 16th Century. It was known as a 'Bilboquet'. It developed into a craze during the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1st when it became known as a Cup and Ball. Apparently even the Queen herself enjoyed playing with this toy! Please make your cup and ball game as glittery and colourful as you wish so we can put them on display!

 Mathematics   Working Mathematically   By the end of year 1, children begin to solve simple problems involving addition and subtraction in familiar contexts, such as going shopping, using a range of hands-on equipment, symbols, images and pictures.  For example:                 Number   Children will identify and represent numbers using objects, pictures and models, such as the number line, and use ‘equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most and least.’ Children will accurately count numbers to, and across, 100 forwards and backwards from any given number with increasing understanding. They count, read, write and order numbers in numerals up to 100 and from 1 to 20 in words. When given a number, they can identify one more and one less. They can count in multiples of twos, fives and tens.                   Calculating   Children will understand known addition and subtraction facts within 20, including zero. They will demonstrate an understanding of multiplication and division through grouping and sharing using hands-on resources, pictorial representations and arrays (2, 5 and 10). They understand doubling and halving small quantities.                   Fractions   Through play and hands-on resources, children will find and name half and one quarter of objects, shapes and quantities.   Measurement   Children will begin to measure using non-standard units (finger widths, blocks etc.) moving to standard units of measure (e.g. cm) using tools such as a ruler, weighing scales and containers. They will begin to record and compare measurements such as lengths and heights, mass and weight, capacity and volume using language such as long / short; heavy / light; full / half-full / empty. They will tell the time to the hour, half past the hour and be able to sequence events in chronological order using precise language (for example, before and after, next, first, today etc.). Children will recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins and notes.                                 Geometry   Children will recognise and name common 2-D shapes, e.g. rectangles (including squares), circles and triangles, and 3-D shapes, e.g. cuboids (including cubes, pyramids and spheres) in different orientations and sizes. They will describe position, direction and movement, including whole, half and three quarter turns.
