A space to share all the amazing learning that's been going on at home. Have a look at what your friends have been up to!
Wow - look at all the outdoor learning you've been doing. You are impressing us so much with all your challenges! Well done!
Here is a outdoor challenge for you so hopefully the sum is shining! If you want more of a challenge you could write a list of the things you find, listening closely to the sounds in the words.
So as of today, Friday 3rd April 2020, it is officially the Easter holidays. Therefore, for the next 2 weeks we will not be setting any daily challenges. However, we will be checking the class email regularly, so if you would like any help or support, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond as soon as we can.
However, after a discussion we have decided to set the children the challenge of decorating an egg, if they wish to do so. It is a little bit of fun, that would have been happening had we been in school. So all the year 1 staff (and probably their families) will be showing their best on a special area of the website. If you wish to join in the fun, please email lus your entries! And have fun!
Thank you for all your continued support at this difficult time. Stay safe and well, best wishes, the year 1 team,
Mrs Hayward, Miss Walker & Mrs Lofthouse xxx
Wow!! You are all superstars!! I love the different approaches you have taken to sort out my mixed up sentences! And the handwriting is beautiful!! well done you all!!!
LITERACY - I’ve had an accident, I was carrying my animal sentences in my suitcase but I dropped them. When I picked them up, they were all jumbled! Can you put my sentences in order please.

Email a photo of your work. This is a perfect chance to practise those leading lines we've been working on!
If you have more time, you could create some more of your own sentences about these animals! Which is your favourite and why? Which would you most like to meet and why? I wonder if you have you ever seen any of these animals?
Pretend you are a pirate and go and hide some 'treasure' in your garden (if you don't have a garden you can do this in the lounge and maybe set out some obstacles).
Then draw a map of your garden, including all the things in it (bird table/ paddling pool/ trampoline).
After that draw on your route to find the treasure....remember X marks the spot!
Can the children describe their route to you so you can find the treasure?
The words we are encouraging them to use are next to/ left / right.
As an extra challenge, can the children use time openers to write instructions to find the treasure.
For example, First turn left by the steps. Then go around the pond. Next turn right at the rabbit hutch.
Here are some photos of Tuesday's challenge! Split digraph hunt and nature people!
PHONICS CHALLENGE- Split digraphs! a_e e_e o_e i_e u_e
Choose your favourite book (or more than one) and go on a split digraph sound hunt! How many words in your book have a split digraph? Can you read them all? Can you make a list of the words you've found?
SCIENCE CHALLENGE- Nature people!
Go into your garden or on your one walk a day and collect natural materials to make people. Remember not to pick other people's flowers. We can't wait to see your nature people!
Remember to send your photos to email@example.com
These are the homemade boats we've received so far. They are amazing! I hope they all floated. There's also rhyming challenges too!
PHONICS CHALLENGE- Rhyming! Write a list of words that rhyme with these words. Use different colours for real words and nonsense words. WORD 1 pan WORD 2 rest WORD 3 pound
SCIENCE CHALLENGE- Using any materials/ recycling you can find, can you create a boat that floats? Design your boat first and label it clearly. Then test your boat :)
What makes your boat float? If it doesn't float, why not? Can you add to it/ improve it so it does float!
We now have a Year 1 email address. Feel free to email any photos you have and we can put them on the website so children can see what their class mates have been up to :) Thank you! Year 1 Team.
White Rose Maths are creating daily tasks for children and publishing them within the 'Home Learning' section of their website. Below is the link for the Year 1 tasks. If you click on each task, there is audio guidance of how to complete each task which will be really helpful for the children as it explains the tasks very clearly! Simply click on the link below and you will have access to this. We are now on 'Week 2' and White Rose Maths have uploaded the lessons already for the entire week. They will continue to upload like this for the forseeable.
Just follow these four easy steps…
1) Click on the set of lessons for your child’s year group;
2) Watch the video (either on your own or with your child);
3) Find a calm space where your child can work for about 20-30 minutes;
4) Use the video guidance to support your child as they work through a lesson.
Following each video, there are tasks assigned that you can download and the answers to these are also available to you.If your child struggles with these, please do not worry about having to access the daily task within a different year group - that is absolutely fine! White Rose Maths have also created Facebook groups for each year group for further support helping your child should you require it (please copy and paste the link below into your browser and join the group). The team will be online every weekday between 10.00 and 11.00am to share children’s questions, examples and stories via any of their social media channels.
This section contains general literacy and maths work. Ideally, a selection on maths and literacy should be completed each day. The documents in this section were handed out in the home learning packs.

Here are the Year 1 common exception words list which children need to be able to read and spell by the end of year 1. We have also included the year 2 common exception words. You should move onto this if your child is confidently spelling and reading the year 1 list.
The current learn by heart facts which need to be learnt are 'the correct spellings of days of the week' and 'halving facts to 10' These will be updated by year 1 staff. You can see the documents here which show what children need to know by the end of year 1.
