This week we would like you to return your child's competed Literacy work. We look forward to reading their independent retelling of the story of Let's Find Fred. This work needs to be returned by Sunday 24th of January via the Year 1 email: email@example.com
We will give general feedback on the Year 1 blog and may respond individually if appropriate.
Mrs Ban has read a story for the children this week, we hope they enjoy listening to it!
Please try and complete the following:
Daily: Literacy, Numeracy, Phonics, CLIC, Reading and one Topic subject.
In addition to the activities listed in the plans please continue to read with your child on a daily basis.
In year one children spend time learning through a mixture of focused learning activities and through independent play. Focused activities last between 20 and 30 minutes and can be broken up by independent play based activities. Play based activities can develop fine and gross motor skills, investigative and problem solving skills, creativity and imagination and many other areas. Here are some ideas that we are using in the classroom over the next couple of weeks. You do not need to follow these ideas but we often give children breaks between the activities (we do let them play) and these are some of the things we do in class.
- Using any construction toys at home, can you build a bear or a bear cave?
- Have a teddy bears picnic. Can you make a picnic using playdough? Make invitations and birthday cards. (This is a great recipe for playdough https://theimaginationtree.com/play-dough/)
- Practice forming letters, writing tricky words and drawing pictures. This can be done in a tray of flour, water and a paintbrush in the garden, chalk, paint, felt pens…
- Can you make a bear cave den that will fit you inside? You could read some stories to your own bears and soft toys.
- Threading, colouring, junk modelling, building, imaginative play.
Please take pictures of the different things you do so we can add them to the blog!
Thank you for all your hard work,
Year 1 Team

LO: I know some facts about the four different countries within the UK.
Watch the live lesson with Miss Browne. These videos can whizz on, so may need pausing at times.
There is a sheet to complete during the session.
LO: I know that a birthday is a celebration of birth and I can talk about how I celebrate my birthday.
Watch the PowerPoint below. In your books, draw a picture showing how you celebrate birthdays in your family. Write a sentence to go with it. Remember to use good year 1 writing!
LO: I can identify and investigate different properties.
This week we are doing a science experiment to find out which materials are waterproof. The instructions are in the PowerPoint below and should talk you through the experiment. There is a table to print out to record the results on.
This week we are having another go at 2go on Purple Mash. On the start screen, press the challenges button. See how many challenges you can complete.
LO: I can print using a repeating pattern.This week we are looking at printing and repeating patterns. There are different ways you can do this at home. Here a few ideas though feel free to be as creative as you wish to be!
- Children can make their own stamper. This website has lots of good ideas: https://www.osc.org/kids-homemade-stamps-diy/
- Children can find things around the house they can use as a stamper to print with. They could make a shape out of the bottom of a cardboard tube, use a vegetable like a potato, leaves or the end of a bunch of celery make a lovely flower!
Using the stamp, they can then fill a piece of paper with a repeating pattern. It could repeat using colours, direction of stamp, number of stamps…
LO: To create simple melodies.
A task has been set on the purplemash 2do tab. This week, just have a play around with the program and see what it does. If you’re not sure how to get started, press the green arrow and it will show an instruction video.
It can be hard to keep active when we are at home. Here are some websites that may be helpful and fun to do!
This is free to join and lots of different dances to join in with.
