Monday 4th May

Good Morning Year 1,


Welcome to another new week.


Thank you for your brilliant work last week, I have shared more of your fantastic efforts on class story and on our web page.


Let’s see how many of can complete today’s activities. Remember to show me what you have been doing.


Mrs E


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




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



Today we are going to look at the sound 'ir' like in bird 'ur' like in burn and 'er' like it tiger. 

Can you read and write these words?

bird           burn       tiger 

first          turtle     otter 

whirl          turnip     letter 

chirp          nurse     player 


Write the words on flash cards and sort into the column with the correct digraph.









Can you think of any more words you could put in your chart?


Can you play Buried Treasure and practice the sounds?


'ur' and er are phase 3 sounds 'ir' is a phase 5 sound 




Warm-up – Can you practice doubling numbers

Pick a number up to 5, can your child recognise the corresponding double fact? Re-enforce numbers they struggle with practical objects.

When they are confident move onto numbers 6-10.


The aim is for rapid recall.

Practice using Hit the button - Double numbers


Complete the lesson on the White Rose hub website (see links below)


Summer Term week 2: Lesson 1 – Find a half (2)



Watch the video and then attempt the questions.


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



From tomorrow we are going to start doing some sentence work on the bbc website: Small Town Superheroes.

So today I would like you to create your own superhero (like we have done in class). You can use the template below or just draw your own.


I would also like you to tell me some facts about your Superhero…


Can you write the sentence starter and then complete it with your own ideas? Use your imagination with your answers, it’s up to you.

I am ______ years old.

My favourite food is ______________________________

My special superpower is ___________________________

If I was in charge of the world for a day I would ____________


Remember to use capital letters and full stops.

I will share all your superheroes on class story. I can’t wait to see them.


As you all know the NHS and the doctors and nurses are really important in helping us to fight the corona virus. So I thought it would be a good idea to find out about a famous nurse who was one of the first nurses to help to clean up hospitals and help poorly people get well. Watch the video and complete the activity.

Can you draw a picture of Florence Nightingale and tell me any facts you have found out about her?


Remember, you can post your work on Class Dojo to show me what you have done. There are lots of dojo points on offer! smiley
