Hello Ash and Chestnut 

Welcome to Week 6 of home learning. This week is a week of feasting, dancing and poetry!  You have all worked incredibly hard this half term and we will have some fun this week to celebrate.  

Your weekly outline of all subjects is below.  Remember your teacher will be uploading daily videos modelling and introducing the lessons being completed in school that day.  More daily lessons across all subject areas are still available to dip into on BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy if you require them.

Your teacher will have sent you information about GetEpic - a fantastic online library for us all to access from home.  Check ClassDojo to find out details of how to log in to your class page and start exploring! 

Take care everyone!


We are going to use our senses to help us write poetry this week! By the end of the week we will be writing our own castle sensory poem.

We do a LOT of sorting between nonsense and real words in Year 1 building towards the Phonics Screener in June.  Have a look at Phonics Play as we use it a lot at school.  Lots of games to choose from and they are offering free access to their site again due to lockdown.  Games such as Dragon's Den, Picnic on Pluto and Buried treasure are fantastic for practising blending.  


This week we will be looking at how to use the question mark ! Open the Powerpoint and Mrs Lambert will talk you through the activities.  There are some sheets for practise as well. 

We have also included a high frequency word list, which the children can practise reading and writing- lots of them are included during our phonics as well.

Reading comprehension

We would normally be working towards guided reading groups at this point in the year.  These groups are when we get chance to really start working on our reading comprehension together.  We would do this once a week.  Try the reading comprehension activity below.  They cover sounds that we have already covered in class.

If you're at home missing science and wanting to do more -  you could take a look at “Let’s Go Live with Maddie & Greg” which is a live family science show on YouTube hosted by Maddie Moate & Greg Foot.  They do three live sessions a week on a Monday, Weds and Fri at 11am.  All episodes are available on their Youtube channel (link above).
