Year 1 2019 - 2020

Miss Barrow

Mrs Holden

Hello everybody and welcome to Year 1's Home Learning page. The Year 1 teachers, Mrs Holden and Miss Barrow, are here to support you and guide you as best we can through this strange new world of learning from home and we encourage you to stay in touch, to share your work and to just to do your best!

Below you will find a list of the subject areas we would like you to cover this half term, with ideas and links to try. Of course we will update the homework pages every Sunday to be made live ready for a new week on Monday morning.


As a year group we will be looking at the book "Supertato" by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. 

We will set three activities each week on the homework page of the website about this book. Two will be short activities and the third will be a longer piece of writing. 


You can use the Oxford Owls or Big Cats website to access lots and lots of free ebooks, similiar to those we use in school. We will suggest a book linked to your child's phonics phase each week, but other than that, just enjoy reading stories, listening to bedtime stories and spending time chatting about your favourite books.


For Maths, we will use an online platform called MYMATHS to set maths activities for you each week. With the personal login that has been created for you, you will be able to access lessons and tasks that cover our summer Maths objectives. From time to time we may ask you to use the school website to look at other activities, but we will let you know in an email when this happens. It would be great if you could also practise skills and mental maths each day on Numbots, fifteen minutes is plenty!

Physical Education

You and your family can keep active together by joining in with these links:

Or use your one hour of outside time having a nature walk or a bear hunt!


Our new topic in Science is Seasonal Changes and the weather. We will be putting some information and an activity on the school website each week but this topic lends itself so well to home learning. Lots of talk about the weather and making weather reports!


We will be putting some information and a topic task on the website each week. This can be completed in your workbooks, or on paper.

Final note

We want to make sure that you have access to as wide a range of learning resources as possible, so that you you are armed with a plan and tools for tackling home learning.  We also know how challenging and exhausting it can be, working, running a home and teaching too.  All we ask is that you do your best, look for opportunities for learning that you and your child can enjoy together on difficult days: cooking, home improvements, tidying up, helping with siblings and gardening are all really useful skills too! We love hearing from you and seeing what you are up to, so post scrapbooks, send photos and keep in touch.

Stay Safe, Stay Positive
