Year 1

Hello Year 1,

It has been another busy week for the Year 1 teachers. As always, we are busy working full-time to prepare your home learning, plan future lessons and plan exciting things for September. In other news, Mrs Borg finished for maternity leave last week and we hope that she’s had a relaxing week off before her new little one arrives. Mrs Grice has been baking again-she’s going to be able to enter Bake Off at this rate! Miss Brennan has been a busy bee creating PE videos for all of you in her back garden for all of you to enjoy. Mrs Duncan has been kept busy with her young children and the ducks at her local park have never been so well fed.

We hope that you’re all well. It seems as if we’ve been away from you for a very long time now; please know that we miss you all very much. As always, we have loved hearing from you via phone calls home and emails from your adults. It has been so lovely to see the wonderful home learning that some of you have been completing at home. We have especially enjoyed hearing about the exciting books that you are reading and all of the phonics sounds that you have been practising at home. This week’s home learning is packed full of fun ideas and tasks that will help you to continue your learning; we hope that you’re all working hard on it. Please remember that we love seeing photographs or updates on how your learning is going so please keep your emails coming in.

Have a fantastic week

Best Wishes

The Year 1 Team

Weekly Learning
The documents below outline the weekly learning for your year group.  Maths and English activities can be completed daily - children should be able to complete these independently.  The wider curriculum document contains curriculum based challenges which can be completed across a two week period.  

Resources to support the wider curriculum learning. 

The Maths and English sections below contain optional learning resources.  These can be used if children would like to develop their learning further.  The maths activities provided by First 4 Maths involve learning about maths in a fun and creative way.  The English documents offer a range of creative writing opportunities.  

White Rose Maths are releasing daily maths lessons during the school closure.  Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.

It is vital that children continue to read at home with an adult daily.  
Oxford Owl will be offering a range of free support so that children can continue their Read Write Inc. learning journey away from the classroom during these uncertain times. This will include a ‘phonics spine’ of 72 free eBooks matched to Read Write Inc. levels, along with 62 Speed Sounds practice sheets, 28 Ditty practice sheets, parent information booklets and 8 Speedy Green Words slideshows. These free resources will all be added to the Read Write Inc. page on Oxford Owl for Home over the coming weeks.
Read Write Inc are also producing daily phonics lessons.  These will be available on their YouTube channel.
