Welcome to the Year 1 Home Learning page.

The following home learning activities have been provided for you to complete during the period of school closure. Initially we have provided enough to last for a two week period (up to the end of the Spring term). We will add to this and give further guidance if the school is closed for longer than this period. Please keep any completed written work safe so that it can be brought back to school once we are open again.
email contact details at the bottom of the page if you need to speak to a teacher.
Unless otherwise stated all tasks are accessed from the Learning Links PDF below.

Core Learning Tasks and Guidance

Reading: As usual, we would like the children to read regularly and when reading, this should be recorded in their reading diaries. We have sent extra books home (x4) with each child. However, extra reading can be done from the children’s own story books. Oxford Owl is linked below and this is a great resource for eBooks. There is a wide range of different levelled books which can be suitable for your children. As you may recall, we have spoken about the importance of reading the first 100 high frequency words which we gave out on parent’s evening. In addition to this, we also discussed the sound mats (phase 5), which can also be accessed on Twinkl or in reading diaries (phase 3 is also in reading diaries). Please continue to regularly go over the sounds with your children. Phonics play (link - https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/), will give you free access to many phonics games which are great to develop skills. We would also like the children to undertake a weekly reading challenge. The first is to draw an aeroplane which should visit the setting described in your child’s story book. For example, if you are reading Little Red Riding Hood, the setting would be a forest, which the children can draw and label. The second challenge is to draw a library book shelf, where children can record the titles of the books they read and the author’s name.

English: To ensure the children are practising their writing skills, we would like them to undertake one writing activity from the Twinkl creative writing prompt question writing frame per day. Due to this being a PDF, the children will need to write it on paper. This is up to your child to choose. For example, they may like writing about an invention they want to make to change the word. To continue what we have focused on in the classroom, we are expecting finger spaces (which a lolly pop stick can support), capital letters, full stops and writing which is of a consistent size. To support spelling, please visit https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/spookySpellings/index.html and practise year one words on the book shelf.

Maths: For maths, you can access the Twinkl spring themed maths activity booklet for year ones. This will provide you with a range of activities to recap our previous learning. You should bear in mind that some children will need to practise some basic skills before undertaking the activity. For example, the counting in 2s dot to dot may require you to chant the counting in twos sequence lots of times beforehand. Also some activities may be need to be extended for your child if they are finding it too easy. However, other children may require concrete equipment (clothes pegs, pennies, etc) to support their counting. For number formation practise, the children can do numbers that like/dislike the sun. For example, on a piece of paper put the sun in the right hand corner and write the numbers. ICT games (https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/index.html) also has various useful activities. We would like the children to focus on the interactive clock to practise to half past and o’clock times.

Science/Other curriculum areas: For science, we would like you to choose activities from the science including animals and humans activity booklet. In addition to this, we would like the children to keep a record of one main meal a day. They can draw this meal and think about which parts of the meal come from plants and which parts come from animals and label this. For history/art, we are learning about the artist L.S Lowry. On Twinkl, you can look at his pictures of factories and matchstick men and the children can be artists and practise his style of drawing. For a challenge, they could make a little booklet all
