Maths:  I can add more

The children will explore addition and represent it in various ways such as number sentence and part-whole models.  Remember the two parts added together will make the whole.  Using a variety of equipment to help consolidate the learning (cars, teddies, lego blocks, counters, chick peas, beans - anything you have available to show the 2 parts).


Go through the presentation showing the different ways of exploring addition and then choose your level of challenge worksheet.  *    Supported,   **  Secure   *** Mastery

There is a practical activity to represent the picture cards.  Can you match them up?


**** Challenge yourself with a problem solving question - can you apply your fluency!  Have a go.  


Handwriting (Numbers 3, 4 and 5)

Warm-up the muscles in your fingers and hands with Mrs O'Brien! Practise carefully forming the numbers 3, 4 and 5. Are you forming the numbers the right way? Use the rhyme in the video to help you.

RE:  Why is Christmas important to Christians.

Please look at the Powerpoint (PDF) the file was too large to insert the audio clip and video.  So please click on individually about the birth of Jesus.  Pause the video at 1 minutes 35 seconds and I would like you to draw a picture of where Jesus was born.  I would like you to think about what is different about the way Jesus was born?  Is there anything the same? How do you think Mary felt?  Some big thinking today Class 1.

Friday 19th November

We are very sad and sorry that Year 1 has had to close but we feel it is the right decision in light of the growing number of cases.  Below is the plan for the day but we understand and recognise that it might not be possible for you to do all or any. PLEASE do not worry - look after yourselves and keep safe.  There will be no set homework this week. 


Reading - Please use your Bug Club Logins to read another book and answer all the bugs!


Writing - Please practise spelling your Tricky Words (so, do, have, some, come, said, like) How many can you write correctly in 10 minutes?  Please can parents spell them WRONG eg doo, hav, sed, sum and see if the children can correct you?  We have been choosing the correct option in class - can they do it on their own now?! 


Maths - Option 1 - use dominoes to complete the sheet below - adding the 2 numbers to make a whole

OR Option 2 - practise your number bonds to 10 using the website Hit the Button below. (Choose Number Bonds and then Make 10)


Handwriting - number formation (focus on numbers 0, 1 and 2 please) if you're brave in a baking tray with flour on or on the sheet below!! 


Science - OPTIONAL we appreciate not everyone can do all of this with work commitments as well.


Use the powerpoint below to find out what happens to hedgehogs, squirrels, geese and wasps in the Autumn.

Option A) Go into the garden to make more Autumnal observations and collect Autumn leaves to make cosy homes for hibernating animals.  Things to think about: keep it out of direct sunlight or prevailing winds, make sure it is covered, don’t keep checking on it. Discuss reasons for this.  

Option B) Complete the cutting and sticking activity - which animals hibernate? 

Choose an option that works for you and your busy day and PLEASE DON'T FEEL PRESSURE TO DO ALL OR ANY OF THIS!

Hi Class 1, 

I do hope that everyone is keeping safe and well!  I am missing you lots... you are all working so hard and I have attached all the Mathletics certificates for the week.  Keep up the hard work :). Mrs Barnes


Phonics: Read and Race Consonant Game

Choose an alternative game and practise blending and segmenting these consonant clusters.  Remember to sound out each individual sound and use your finger as the sound button - this will help!  Let me know who is the winner!!!



Choose a book from Active Learn Primary (Bug Club) to read.  Try and answer all the bug questions.



Number Bond Game - Memory Pairs

There are 4 different levels.

Sheet 1 - Number bonds within 10

Sheet 2 - Number bonds within 9

Sheet 3 - Number bonds within 7

Sheet 4 - Number bonds within 5


Create your own cards if you do not have a printer (this is great number formation practise and writing of number sentences) smiley

Rules of the Game:

  • Place all the cards face down
  • Reveal 2 cards at a time.  If a matching bond is revealed you keep the pair.
  • The winner is the player with the most cards.


TOPIC:  The Role of a Monarch

I attach a Powerpoint which will need some adult support to go through about the role of a Monarch.  What rules would you create if you were King or Queen of England.  Can you design a poster and let me know how you would rule England?  What is important to you?  How are you going to be a good monarch?  What values do you think are important?

Phonics: Read and Roll Consonant cluster games

Practise segmenting and blending your consonant clusters (str, spl) on this roll and read game.  There are 7 different games so take one each day to practise.  Can you beat your Mum, Dad or sibling??  


Maths:  Number Bonds to 10

Review Lesson one of the Powerpoint and practise with your recall of number bonds to 10.  I have attached some worksheets of differing levels of support.  Choose your level like we do in class - 1 star is the most supported with 3 stars being the more challenging.  Use practical equipment or colour the remaining ten frame spots in a different colour.  


English: In the Tent reading comprehension

I attach a small reading comprehension with a few multiple choice questions.  Have a go and do your best!


Take care everyone
