Here you will find all of your home learning for Year 1. This page will be updated daily before 9:30am with the day's new learning. Every day there will be Reading, Maths, Phonics, High Frequency Words and English activities uploaded as a pdf file that you can download and work from. You can print the sheets and complete the tasks on the sheet or use the home learning books that your child has been provided with.

Please find below the overview of this week's learning (18th - 22nd May 2020):
Using the link below please find your allocated reading book for the week. You will use this book to carry out a different activity each day of the week from the Home Reading Plan below. Each book is a different book band. At this point in the year, we expect most children will be reading the turquoise book. If you find this too easy, please try the purple book. If you find the turquoise book too tricky, please read the blue book.

Here are some additional resources to support reading and phonics:
1) Have a go at the flashback questions.
2) Today we are continuing to look at positional and directional language. Watch Mr Richards' video guide to the lesson first.
3) Have a go at answering the questions on your worksheet.
4) If you have finished, why not have a go at one of our Maths Extension Challenges from the pdf below.
The Government has created a Youtube channel with Phonics lessons on that mirror lessons we teach in school, that would be useful to watch as additional learning. You can follow the link here to view the videos.
There are 3 lessons a day, and lessons will remain on the channel for a week:
10:00 - Phase 3 Sounds
10:30 - Phase 5 Sounds
11:00 - Blending Practise (Phase 2 + 3)
Today's home learning is a recap of all the sounds from the past few weeks. Use your phonics knowledge to answer the questions.
High Frequency Words
High frequency words (also known as tricky or red words) are words that the children are expected to learn and memorise from sight. These words can not be decoded (sounded out). By memorising high frequency words, this will support the development of your child’s reading.
Every day, two high frequency words will be introduced with games and activities. By the end of the week, there will be a spelling test on our website page. This will help you to identify the words that you can read and write from memory, or may need to practise a little bit more.
We have been so impressed with your poems! Now you are all masters of poetry, can you fix the mistakes in the poem on the worksheet?
Mental Health and Wellbeing
We know that it is a very odd and stressful time at the moment, so we have created some extra activities to help your well-being and make sure that you keep being you, the amazing children that we know and love.
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, and to raise awareness the Mental Health Foundation has provided some great resources and activities to try at https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week . We've also added a list of short stories below that you can read if you have any worries or concerns at the moment.
Choose any of the ideas from the selection below.
Our last story before half term is written by Peter Wiliamson and is called 'Daisy's Rescue'. Mrs G will read it to you. Happy listening!
If you have missed any of the home learning this week, you can download and work from the pdf's below.
