Home Learning - wk beg - 30.3.20

Hello Year 1! Here are your second set of weekly learning tasks to complete whilst we are working from home. If you have any questions regarding the tasks set, please email your class teacher who will be pleased to help you! Feel free to complete the tasks by printing out worksheets or by recording on paper or in your homework book. Keep checking this page as much as you can as we put updates on here regularly.

Please do not panic about getting every task set completed. We do not expect everything to be done, just do as much as you can! Some websites will have glitches due to the amount of children using them, please be patient with them.


Comprehension – The reading comprehension this week is called the Runaway Iceberg and it is attached to this page below. There are 3 different levels of questions so please choose the questions your child would feel easiest to complete independently. The answers are also attached if needed.

English Workbook - Please complete pages 6 and 7 this week (The ‘ee’ and the 'ie' sound). Answer pages can be found in the middle of the workbook for parents/carers who wish to go through the answers with their child. 

Sentence Writing - Attached below is a writing task called super sentences. This will help your child to remember to always use correct punctuation. There are 3 different levels so choose the one your child will find easiest to complete independently. Answers are also attached and your child can extend their learning further by writing their own super sentences and remembering punctuation, finger spaces and neat handwriting too. They can also try and use conjunctions such as ‘and’, ‘but’ or ‘because’ to join two sentences together.


MyMaths – There are two tasks to complete on my maths this week. They are comparing measures and comparing length. Feel free to do the online lesson before completing the task to help you. You can have multiple attempts on a MyMaths task so if you struggle at first, have another go! Practise makes perfect :)

White Rose - If you have seen our previous post, you may have seen the link provided to access learning materials for the block of work that the children would have been learning next from the White Rose Scheme of work. This week is under the week 2 tab and is focussed on capacity and number work. Take a look at the videos and complete the worksheets for each lesson - This website has been created to provide children aged 4-11 with Maths tutorial videos and a wide range of games and activities. They are currently offering free sign ups for all.

TTRockstars – This website helps children with their times tables. The children only need to focus on x2, x5 and x10. The children can have as many attempts as they like with this to improve their knowledge. If you have not received your login for this website please email your class teacher.

There is also a Spring Maths activity booklet attached to print out or complete questions in homework books.

Purple Mash – Science and History.

You have been set some Science tasks about Animals and their habitats this week and also a History Task about toys which we looked at in the Autumn term. There is also a RE task about Easter called Oakley and Brody’s leaflet to complete. Click on the 2Do tab to find all tasks set.

If you can’t get onto Purple Mash, we have attached a Science booklet about animals and their habitats to this page. You can print it out or complete on paper/homework book.

There are lots of other activities you can do on Purple Mash so feel free to do them alongside set tasks. You can also do previous weeks tasks at any time too.


This week is all about Easter so there is an Easter egg task on Purple Mash or you can print out the colouring pictures that are attached below. You can also make your own Easter card either on Purple Mash or use some paper or card.


Attached below are some sheets called – Where am I on the map? The children have been learning about this in school and so they should be able to complete this independently.
