Class 1

Hello Class 1!

I hope you are all having fun at home and are looking after your family.  I have really enjoyed seeing the photos and comments on Tapestry from the Reception children, keep up the hard work. 

I have updated some of the learning activities below to help keep you all busy. Please remember to use these ideas as much or little as you want to, but a little bit everyday would be fantastic.  

These are the learning suggestions for the next two weeks. 



Please remember you have tapestry. I will have access to tapestry and would love to see what you are all up to. I will do my best to comment and reply to any tapestry additions during school hours. 




Please read as much as you can either to your child or with your child. Talk about the stories, act them out with made up characters and talk about what could happen next.

This half term we have been learning about David Attenborough and in English we have been learning to write facts to write our own fact book. Research facts about David Attenborough and create a fact book with factual sentences that have correct punctuation  - capital letters, full stops, finger spaces. Maybe you could include some questions too.  


Creating sentences

Use this picture to write a variety of sentences which must have correct punctuation - capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. Encourage your child to write on the line and to keep their letter size consistent. 



Please revisit previous spellings or see the Year 1 Statutory spelling list from the National Curriculum. 



MATHLETICS - everyone has a login and I can assign more tasks if you run out. Please use this resource to support your child's maths learning. 


This half terms KIRF is doubling and halving, so please keep learning these facts. You could revisit our previous KIRF challenges of number bonds to 10, number bonds to 20, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. 



The children in Year 1 were going to begin to learn to tell the time. Please see the document below that demonstrates the steps the children need to learn in order to tell the time. The planning has some activities you could try at home. Time is best done a little bit but often and talking about the time throughout the whole day. 



The children in Reception have been learning to add two groups by counting on from the biggest amount, whilst also learning number bonds facts to 10 off by heart. We have used the Hit The Button game for this in school. Please see the document below for ideas and suggestions on how to support your child with their maths learning. 


White Rose Maths Hub is producing a series of home learning resources which include a short video and a set of focused questions based on the area of learning for the day.  Some areas will have been covered by the children, which gives them chance to consolidate previous learning, but others may be new and the videos will be especially helpful for this.  

Each week will see a new set of videos and work activities released.  There is more guidance on the White Rose Maths hub home learning.  

We would like children to select the from the resources provided for their year group.  However, if your child finds this too difficult, it is perfectly fine for children to select from an earlier year group where possible.  

We follow the White Rose Maths Hub scheme of work in school so the children will be familiar with the layout and style of the problems.  


Mathletics - complete the tasks made available and then use the free play options.  More tasks will become available if the closure of the school extends over a longer period.

This half term the children have be learning how to classify animals into groups. Mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians.  

It would be great if the children could now learn how to classify animals by what they eat.  You could use toy animals you have or search for different animals on the internet to sort into these groups. 


https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv This website has some videos the children can watch. 



Why is David Attenborough an important person today?

The children have found out about how important David Attenborough is for our climate and animals. Can they find out about anyone who has been an important person in History? Follow the link to choose someone to learn about 




Rainbows seem to be a lovely positive sign for children this week. Make a rainbow with anything you have in your house. Use outdoor things or tins from your cupboards. Teach children the names of the colours and the order the colours are in a rainbow.
