Good morning Year 1,


Thank you for all your lovely work yesterday.


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 ‘c’ grapheme.  Can you read these words?


cat, crisp, coat, curls, clock, cell, acid, success, accent, ice

Use these games to practice the alternative pronunciation of the 'c' 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.

Warm-up – Practice counting backwards in 10s – Can you start at 100. When you are confident can you start from different starting points, e.g. 50, 40, 30… or 80, 70, 60…

Practice using Whack-a-mole.

What number can you count back from?


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


Summer Term week 6: Lesson 2 – Compare 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 continuing to practice correctly forming sentences by using capital letters and full stops.


Remember the story you read yesterday called ‘Sam Silver: Undercover Pirate’

Well, today we are going to write some sentences about a pirate (there is a worksheet at the bottom if you want to use it).


First create a list of words that you would associate with pirates (you can write them out or just discuss them with who you are working with). Here are some to get you started:

  • eye-patch
  • skull and cross bones
  • parrot


If you want you can draw a pirate and label it?


Once you've made (or thought) of your list, try writing one, two or three sentences about pirates using words from your list. Here are some examples:



Can you think of sentences of your own?


Alternatively, as we have done before, you can write out the sentence and practice saying the sentence out loud. Then cut up the sentence and muddle it up. Can you put it back in order making sure the capital letter and the full stop are in the right place?
