Good morning Year 1!

I hope you have had a good week! It was lovely to welcome some of you back into school yesterday and see some smiling faces! If you are still doing home based learning, don't worry, this will continue as normal for the rest of the term!

Today's tasks are attached below. There is a fun ICT task, a Science task and a Maths task. You will also notice that Miss Mews has added an extra Science challenge above, which sounds very fun! You may wish to do this instead of the Science on the Y1 work for today. Of course, you're more than welcome to do both, but you may not have time to do it all. 

There is also still time for you to enter the Virtual School Games Dance competition. Details for this can be found on the 'all classes' page on this website. 

I hope you have a good day today and a good weekend! I look forward to seeing more of you when you're in school on Monday and Tuesday next week.

Good morning Year 1,

How did you get on with your story writing yesterday? I'd love to read some of them. Today in English, we move on to the next task in the Sayeeda story, which has a poetry theme and riddle solving task. Today's Maths work focuses on counting in jumps of 10. There are two activities below for you to try. 

I hope you have a good day!

Hello Year 1!

I hope you're having a good week so far! Yesterday, you should have completed the planning stage for your pirate adventure story, so today you can write it. If you haven't yet done the planning, do this today as it will help you.

Maths continues with the White Rose scheme, which is uploaded below. 

Can I also direct you to the 'all classes' page, where you will see the information for this week's Virtual School Games. This week's activity is Dance. It would be great if some Y1 children could enter. 

I look forward to reading some of your stories! Have a good day!

I have also uploaded the spelling list and some activities to support you with these.

Good morning Year 1!

Welcome to another week of home learning! I hope you enjoyed last week and hope that you and your families are all well.

This week, we will be continuing with our English work on the Sayeeda the Pirate story. Today has a fun DT task linked to it, which I hope you'll enjoy! In Maths, we are moving on from our work on 'Measures'. This week will focus on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. I have uploaded the English and Maths tasks below and you will find all of the information you need in the document dated today, below. 

 

If you have any photos or work from last week, please send it in via email, so I can continue to add your pictures to the class gallery. 

 

I hope you have a good day.

We've reached the end of another week! I hope it's been a good week for you! I have uploaded the English and Maths task below for today and there is a fun Art activity to do on Purple Mash which links in with the Art work you did earlier in the week. Everything is explained in the document for today. If you have any trouble logging on to Purple Mash, send an email to school and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. 

I hope you have a good day and enjoy your weekend!

Hello Year 1!

I hope you're well and enjoying your week so far! The weather was not helpful for the Art task yesterday. Hopefully, it will be drier today, which will make it better for creating your rain shadows. I'd love to see them, so I can put them on the class page.

I have uploaded the learning tasks for today below as normal.

 

I hope you have a good day!

I hope you're having a good week so far! There are some exciting practical tasks for today. I have uploaded everything you need to know in the document below. There is an Art activity and a practical Maths task to support our ongoing learning on measures. 

 

I'd really like to see any artwork you do this week and I will upload it onto the picture gallery as you send it in.

Good morning Year 1!

 

I hope you've all had a nice half term break and been able to enjoy the amazing weather! I managed to go on some lovely sunny walks with my dog, Meg! She's a Border Collie so loves a walk! The further the better and she loves to go in the river for a swim to cool down. 

 

This week's work tasks will be added below as normal. There is an exciting new Talk4Writing story starting today. I have attached the story and today's English tasks below. In Maths, we are continuing with the White Rose schemes of work. This week continues with 'Measures', as we were doing before Half Term. 

 

I hope you enjoy today's tasks and have a good day!

Friday 22nd May

 

Good morning Year 1!

It's Friday again! This week seems to have flown by! Today is the last day of this half term, so there will be a week off from the learning tasks next week. 

I have attached work for today below. The final task in the Pippety Skycap story is a fun one and links to DT skills. In Maths, there is a Friday challenge from White Rose and I would also like you to have a think about an RE task today too.

 

I hope you've enjoyed this week's task and I hope you have a nice week at home next week.

Stay safe!

Thursday 21st May

 

Good morning Year 1!

I hope you had a good day yesterday and managed to enjoy the sunshine! How many of you managed to finish your ice lolly design and make it? If not, you could do that today! I'd love to see them if you want to send in your pictures. 

The work for today can be found below as always. 

Have a good day!

Wednesday 20th May

 

Hello Year 1

I hope you're well and enjoying the learning tasks so far this week! Today, I have added the next part of the ice lolly design activity- it's a perfect day for an ice lolly! Everything you need to help you for today is attached below. 

Can I also point you in the direction of the Virtual School Games again. Today would be a nice sunny day to give it a go! 

Have a good day! Stay safe!

Tuesday 19th May

 

Good morning Year 1,

I hope you had a good day yesterday! I have added the new tasks for today, below. I have also added this week's spellings which focus on the 'aw' and 'au' sounds. Maths continues with Measures and today's Pippety Skycap task links nicely with this too.

If you look on the 'all classes' page, there is some information about this week's Virtual School Games- the focus for this week is Cricket. It would be great if you could have a go at some point this week!

Have a good day!

Monday 18th May

 

Good morning Year 1!

 

I hope you have all had a nice weekend at home with your families! The weather has been nice and warm and dry again and it looks like it might get quite hot by the middle of this week! Lots of chance to get outside. 

I have attached the learning tasks for today below. You will see that we are continuing with the Pippety Skycap tasks in English but are starting a fun new unit in Maths. 

Of course, these are still worrying and stressful times. Mrs Brown has also put a link on the 'all classes' page of the school website, which is a story all about worries. It might be a good idea for you to have a look at this too, today. 

I hope you have a good day!

Look after yourselves. 

Friday 15th May

Good morning Year 1!

 

It's Thursday already! This week seems to be going so fast! I hope you're enjoying the activities so far this week. I am looking forward to seeing some of your ice lolly designs from yesterday!

Today, I have added Maths and English tasks below. All of the worksheets are there too and any links you need are in the documents as usual. 

 

Have a good day!

Good afternoon Year 1.

I hope you are having a lovely day. As lots of us are doing our work on computers or devices with the internet we must remember about Online Safety which is very important at the moment. I have come across some brilliant videos and activities by thinkuknow who are part of the police force keeping us safe. There are 3 videos at the moment with more on the way, following Jessie and her dog coming across problems you may have when using a device yourself. Have a watch and remember to always stay safe online- If you’re unsure of something, tell an adult.
