Hello Year One,


It was so lovely once again to see some more members of our class return to school! The weather was very HOT last week and I hope you all got to enjoy some of the lovely sunshine. Hopefully you are all staying safe and maybe we will see you in school soon.smiley


This week, I have uploaded similar revision Maths work and daily English tasks. Your project for Topic this week will be classes.  Along with all of this, I hope we are still all doing some reading! Remember to look online at Oxford Owl for free reading books-


If you are running out of space in your home learning book please contact the office and we will try and arrange for you to collect another.


Have another great week of learning and try your very best smiley Remember to stay safe and if you have any questions or would like to show me some of your work, please email the school ( and I will get back to you all.

For Maths this week, I have uploaded a range of revision tasks for you to complete, these are all areas that we have covered so far in Year One. Choose the ability which suits you best and give it your best try! I have also uploaded some extra tasks for those of you who love to complete a challenge in Maths. 




This week, I have uploaded a range of tasks below. There are some reading comprehensions, writing opportunities and phonics activities.

Remember the website Phonics Play is still offering free interactive resources/games, we are playing this in school and Year One love all the challenges!  I would highly recommend doing the flashcards and the buried treasure games (username - march20 password- home).

Please ensure for the comprehensions that you are answering the questions in full sentences. 

For your phonic tasks, can you read the ‘phoneme spotter’ sheet and identify the chosen sound e.g. oa. Then why not have a go at sounding and sorting the alternative sounds for ‘oa’ and ‘oi’. Sound button the ‘sorting words’ and organise them into the correct sound using the ‘grid’ sheet. The ‘best guest’ sheet is there as guidance for each alternative sound!





For topic last week in school, Year One were learning all out Castles - we absolutely loved it! We even made our very own castles, I will attach pictures below. This week I will set some tasks below and then I would like you to try and make your own castle.


We used an empty cereal box, turned it inside out and taped it back together, we then painted our castle grey. Next we cut out the battlements at the top of the castle, the arrow slit at the front and then the door for the drawbridge. We pinched holes at the front and back and pulled string through to make the drawbridge.  Why not have a try and have lots of fun smiley
