WEEK BEGINNING 13.07.2020   

Another week has passed – how time flies!  We hope that you have all kept yourselves busy and safe.  If you are still staying at home, please try to do as much of the home learning ideas as possible. It is important that you spend some time learning every day. That is why we are giving you more and more choice so hopefully there is something there for everyone! 

Don’t forget to continue with our topic plan ‘Comings and Goings’ 

Remember to let us know what learning you have been doing via Purple Mash.  

Keep practising your basic skills daily to keep those brains sharp! The ideas below will help you with this. A daily visit to the Oak Academy or the BBC Home learning website is also recommended. Have a good week year 1! 


Every day, you can: 

  • Read something for pleasure. 
  • Write something interesting. 
  • Do some exercise. 
  • Have a conversation with someone. 
  • Practise writing basic letters and focus on starting and finishing in the correct place: U, V, W, X, Y and Z. Then write your full name, remembering to use capital letters correctly.  

Your tasks for this week: 

  • When using the internet, remember how to stay safe! If you see anything that you do not like, share with an adult. 


  • For extra handwriting, practise the following words: thought, wanted, come, some, you, was, off, your, tall and asked.  Remember to form your letters correctly! Challenge yourself to write the words as part of a sentence. 


Phonics play are offering free resources so please log on to keep practising your phonics: 


  • Please continue to read fiction or non-fiction books daily to an adult, brother or sister. Tell them about what has happened in the story or something you have learnt so far. Remember if it is fiction, to add detail about the characters and setting. Can you complete a book review to explain what you liked or disliked the book?  
  • Try to keep a log of all your reading to share with us when you come back to school. The more reading you do the better!  


This week in school we are continuing to look at poetry. We will be looking at a poem about year groups based on the poem Now we are 6 by A.A.Milne 

Year Groups 

When I was in year one 

I learnt how to have some fun 

When I was in year two 

I learnt how to make a stew 

When I was in year three 

I learnt to be just me 

When I was in year four 

I learnt how to fix a door 

When I was in year five 

I learnt how to swim and dive 

When I was in year six 

I learnt how to make cake mix 


  •  Can you read the poem?  Can you think of actions to use when saying your poem?  Can you think of ways to perform your poem? 
  • Read the poem and perform to your adult.  This is a rhyming poem - can you identify all the words that rhyme?  Can you make a list of other words to rhyme with them?  Can you identify the parts of the poem that are repetitive?   Now choose one of your new rhyming words to go with the number. (These are my ideas) 














  • Read and perform your poem to your adult.  Today you will need to copy out your poem.  We will be looking at the way the words are used to create a pattern in the poem.  You will need to count the words in each line and write the number after.  Can you spot the pattern? 

When I was in year one                                 6  

I learnt how to have some fun                      7 

When I was in year two                                6 

I learnt how to make a stew                         7 

  • Today you will need to use your rhyming plan plus your pattern plan from yesterday to write your own poem.  Use the poem above and change the rhyming word. 
  • Practise reading your poem, think about ways you can perform it.  Now perform your poem to your grown up; perhaps you can get them to video it and send it to me via the school email account.  I would love to hear your poem. 



  • Practise writing the days of the week and learn how to spell them using the technique look, cover, write, check. Remember to start each month with a capital letter! You could also find other ways to practise your spellings, such as writing them out using fancy letters and colours.  
  • Challenge – Continue to write the long date each day. For example, Monday 13th July 2020.  
  • Practise your spellings using the correct ow, oa, o_e sound blow, snow, flow, window, yellow, coach, goal, throat, toad, soap, phone, bone, rose, globe, stone 
  • Challenge – How many silly sentences can you write using your spelling words? 



  • Look at Oak National Academy year 1 maths lessons on money and carry out one a day! 
  • MONDAY: 


If you are unable to access these lessons, please complete the following lesson activities: 

  • Write all the key vocabulary for X and  as a spider diagram. Ask someone in your house to help you. Now practise writing your 2 times tables e.g. 0X2=0, 1X2=2, stop at 12X2=24. Challenge: can you write your 5- and 10-times tables? 
  • Time yourself to see how quickly you can write your 2-, 5- and 10-times tables. Are you quicker than someone at your house? 
  • Draw a square. How many sides does it have? Now draw one more square. How many sides do 2 squares have? Now continue to complete statements in the picture below.  
  • Can you write the repeated addition for the following multiplication questions? e.g.  3X2=6     2+2+2= 6.  

2X2, 4X2, 6X2, 9X2.  

Challenge: Can you write repeated addition sentences for these multiplication questions: 4X5, 3X10, 9X5 and 11X10? 

  • Look at the pictures. Do you think the groups are equal or unequal? Can you give a clear reason why? Use your knowledge of repeated  addition to help you. 


Now look at these pictures below. 


 Complete the statements:  

There are _ groups of _ pencils. 

There are _ groups of _ flowers.  

Challenge: are the groups equal or unequal? How do you know? Explain your answer to someone at your house.  


Ask your parent/carer to look through the BBC Bitesize lessons to see if there are any lessons that would help you: 

  • And remember to carry out as many activities as you can from the ‘Comings and Goings’ topic plan.
