Good morning Year 1,


I hope you have all had a lovely weekend!


Here are today’s tasks.


Mrs E


To start today's phonics please can you recap your phase 3 and phase 5 sounds that you find tricky. You can use your sound mats or you could use the flash cars on phonics play



Can you now practice some of your tricky words- You need to be able to read and spell these! Practise the ones that you find difficult. Choose up to 5.




This half term we are going to be looking at alternative pronunciations and alternative spellings. Today we are going to look at the alternative pronunciation for the ‘g’ grapheme.  Can you read these words?


gap, gas, pig, plug, golf, gent, ginger, magic, danger, germ


Use these games to practice your pronunciation of the 'g' sound





Reading – Have you read any books from Big Cat Collins?


You should try to read one or two a week.


Remember Choose the colour above your home reading book. There is an activity to complete at the end of the book. Let me know what books you have read there are lots of dojo points on offer.

Practice using Whack-a-mole.

What number can you count up to?

Summer Term week 6: Lesson 1 – Measure Mass



  • Please watch the video to support your understanding.
  • Try the sheet below.
  • Check your work against the answers (attached below).


Either print and complete, write the answers on a separate sheet or discuss the answers with an adult or older brother or sister.



Today we are practicing correctly forming sentences by using capital letters and full stops.

This lesson includes:

  • a video introducing you to capital letters
  • a short introduction to full stops
  • two activities


Remember when we write sentences, we always use a capital letter at the start. We also use capital letters for I and for proper nouns (the names of people, places, languages, days of the week and countries).


Watch the video below and see if you can help Captain Capital defeat Captain Chaos.

Play along and see if you can help the Punctuation Pals.




At the end of a sentence we put punctuation, this is usually a full stop but can also be a question mark, or exclamation mark, depending on the type of sentence.


For this lesson, we're going to focus on full stops.


Activity 1: Punctuate with MC Ernie

Play the 'Punctuation' mini game on Small Town Superheroes. Use the yellow arrows to navigate to the 'Ernie' section to find the 'Punctuation' game.



Activity 2: Let's listen to a story

Next you are going to watch a video about a book called 'Sam Silver: Undercover Pirate'.


Before watching the video, write three sentences or discuss with your Mum, Dad, brother or sister, explaining what you think it might be about. Remember to use capital letters and full stops.

Once you've written your sentences, watch the video below.



Now you've watched the video and you know what the story is about, look back on your sentences - how close were you to guessing correctly?


Now, write three more sentences that would describe the story to someone who doesn't know it, or again you can just discuss it with your Mum, Dad, brother or sister.



Topic (Monday and Tuesday)


Let’s find out about the continent of South America. Can you find it on a world map?



Learn about the exciting city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, including the major sights, some traditions and the Rio carnival.


This lesson includes:

  • One video introducing the city
  • One video about the Rio Carnival
  • Two activities to build your knowledge
