Thursday 30th April

Good Morning Year 1,

Thank you for your brilliant work yesterday, I have shared some of your fantastic efforts on class story.

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

Mrs E


Continue with activities in the daily phonics and reading activities on the website. Recap phase 3 and phase 5 sounds from sound mats or on phonics play (Flash cards - Speed Trial).

 Today we want you to look at the sound 'ea' like in bead, 'ee' like in bee and 'e_e like in Pete


Can you read and write these words 

bead      bee       Pete

meat     queen    these

peach    feel       theme

beach    three     extreme


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









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


Can you play Buried Treasure game and practice the sounds on Buried Treasure .




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)

Week 4: Lesson 4 – Find a half


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.



Remember our new story called The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffries. See powerpoint below.


You can also hear it being read – see link below


I need your help again! I have written some brilliant sentences about what happened in the story but I have muddled them all up. Can you unscramble the sentences so that they make sense? Remember to use capital letters and full stops. If you can't print off the sentences it is a good idea to write out the sentences in a clear handwriting (by and adult or sibling). Then cut it up so your child can put it back in order.


Then can you put the sentences in order to retell the story in the correct order? Thank you so much!! 


Extra dojo points if you can write out the sentences in your best handwriting.






Thursday and Friday

 Today can you learn about Neil Armstrong?

He is a very famous man who went to the moon. Watch the video



Activity 1

Asking questions about the past

A great way for children to learn about the past is to ask questions.

Together think of some questions you would like to ask about Neil Armstrong and keep them to use in activity 2


Then watch the next video did they answer any of your questions?


It would be lovely to hear some of the questions you have come up with. 


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
