Home Learning Letter – Year 1

Good Morning everyone,

Only 3 more days to go until we can have a rest from home learning. We wanted to say again how proud we are of you all – you are all superstars!

Here are today’s lessons – Literacy will take a little longer today as you will be writing a story so maths will be shorter 😊.

Wednesday 10th February 2021


Literacy is a Teams assignment today. You will become authors and write your very own space story – we can’t wait to read them! Please turn them in by 4.30. Many thanks.

Reading and spellings

Make a class with your teddies and toys and choose a reading book to read to them. Remember to read with expression! After you’ve read your book, teach your toys your spellings 😊 – soon, mood, food, gloomy, balloon, school – how did they do?


You can either do phonics with Rosie or go onto Phonics Play  – play Picnic on Pluto, phase 3, er sound. You can revise all sounds after.


Today is going to be a practical maths lesson.

Can you count up to 100? Can you do 100 star jumps or 100 bunny hops? Now have a look at the splat square and count to 100 pointing to each number as you count. Spend 5 minutes playing each of the following games – Missing number, 1 more 1 less, Lines. For an extra challenge try, Cross and Patterns. Click on the link here.

Finally if you go out for a walk today, go on a number hunt. Practise saying the numbers to a grown up. You could jot them down on a piece of paper and then find them on the hundred splat square when you get home.


Make a map of your heart. Watch Mrs Hicking’s video here.
