Welcome to Year 1 home learning page. Here you will find the work for your child to complete in the event that they can not attend school for any reason.
This is the timetable that the children follow in school. We expect children who are learning at home to follow a similar timetable.
Most of our home learning work is set on Purple Mash or Sumdog. The children have been given their own log-on's for these websites. On both sites we can set 2Do's or tasks and we can see how the children complete their learning. We are then able to give feedback via Marvellous Me (our 'phone app) or e-mail. These sites can also be used for the children to catch up on any learning they may have missed previously or just for fun. If you are unsure of your child's log-in, check out their home school diary. Click on the links below to access the websites.
Every child has a guided reading book which is changed weekly. Children should read their book at least 3 times a week. In addition, each child has a Read, Write, Inc. book which should also be shared at home.
The children need to be able to read and write the following common exception words. Some are aimed at Year 1 and when they are confident using these, we would expect them to learn the Year 2 words.
In school we use the Read, Write, Inc. scheme to help us learn phonics (letter sounds). To help us learn the sounds we also learn a saying and a picture which is associated with the sound. Some sounds are "special friends" where there are 2 or 3 letters that make a new sound when they are together. (ay - may I play?) The children need to learn the following sounds and sayings.
The whole school work on different passport targets. Your child's targets can be found in the back of their homework book. The passports are aimed at improving mental maths skills and require quick recall of the following number facts.
Our current Mini Mission is Teddy Bear`s Picnic. Check out the 2Do's tasks on Purple Mash for science activities about plants and trees.
In school we use www.charanga.com for our music lessons. They have even added amended units for Covid to avoid singing. The children have their own log-ins for this site for Charanga Yuma which caters for access from home. If you have lost your child's log-in please e-mail us. Click on the link below to access Charanga.
Alternatively, a part of our regular lessons includes listening to a piece of music and asking:
Do you like it or not? Why?
What instruments can you hear? (Don't forget that a voice is an instrument)
What style is the music? (rap, ballad, rock, gospel etc.)
Your child could choose a piece of music and write down their answers.
