As many of you are aware the school is awaiting closure. During this uncertain time we are operating as normal until we are informed otherwise. If your family have chosen to self isolate we have created a list of things for them to do at home to keep some structure . I will provide you with a list of things for them to do at home to keep structure. And also a few things we would have been studying over the next couple of weeks. Also 'Twinkl' , a website we use for some of our resourcing, have provided parents with a free login which will be below. You can look up areas covered under the year 1 curriculum which is suitable for your child.


Setting up is really easy go to the website below and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS


Hope everyone keeps safe  and look after each other.


Thanks the Year 1 Team



Further ideas on how to support your child's learning at home:


  • Using Twinkl  ( link above) and Phonics Play look over phase 3 and 5 sounds and play games to go alongside this. Phonics play and how to login below:

  • Look at our Year 1 home learning page ( link below) for high frequency word spellings and some extra phonics homework.
  • Look at making puppets and the different styles of puppets you can create and look at suitable materials to make them.
  • Look at different traditional tales around the world and try to retell a story in writing and children can use a picture to write a story E.g . The sad Sea monster. ( Show a picture , tell a story about him)
  • If you would like to do some workouts at home you can join in with Joe Wicks 5 minute moves for children or Cosmic Kids Yoga Websites Below:

  •  An art outcome where they are doing observational drawing in the style of someone e.g Quentin Blake . The children can use a range of mark making techniques. 
  • Follow the Maths homework grid for some ideas.
  • Research about climate change and create a poster.
  • Reading comprehensions ( see Twinkl website)
  • mindfulness colouring
  •  Crafts and junk modelling 
  • Baking is a great way to use some Math skills
