Please see the revised timetable for today and Friday below! :)

Following a bit of parent feedback and discussing with the Year 1 team we've made a few changes to the timetable.

We will be running off a similar timetable next week to help manage workload at home and offer a bit more flexibility.


For this lesson you will need some lined paper (or you can draw the lines like I have) and we are going to practise our one armed robot letters.
Any you are not confident with today, keep repeating them all week for 5 minutes until you are confident.
Happy handwriting! :)

Today's lesson:

Warm up: Speed read your phonics cards, a little bit like snap!

Activity: Choose half of your sound cards and then say the sound one at a time and say/write a word that includes that sound.

Good Luck!

I hope you had a good day yesterday learning about tens and ones. 

We are going to go over this again today to make sure we have a great understanding around tens and ones.

Today I have uploaded a few extra worksheets that you can complete or you can make your own.

You can watch the second half of the video or play the game below too!

Keep up the hard work!

Finish off

I'm sure there is some work you didn't quite get round to or you need some extra time to finish something off so we've allowed some time today and tomorrow (and the same every week going forward) to finish off this work.

Maybe there are some handwriting letters you need to perfect or you just fancy playing a phonics game around a sound your still unsure of - now is the time to do this! :)

Forest School

Hello Forest Schoolers!

It's such a shame that I haven't had the chance to take you to Forest School this term. Hopefully we will get a chance sometime soon.

Watch my video, join in with my quiz, and use this lesson to explore a park, garden or woodland near you!

When you're out there exploring, please can you find and collect some sticks for you lesson next week in DT. I wonder if you can guess what you need them for?

Maybe when you are out and about you could take photos and make a quiz for your family like I did for you!

Wrap up warm, get out in the fresh air and have FUN! :)
