Hello, Shining Stars! I was very impressed with your work last week. I hope you enjoy this week's activities.


Today, please can you:

  • Read for at least 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Practise your weekly spellings. (ask, asked, back, be, but)
  • Practise counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. 
  • Do 30-60 minutes of exercise (follow the PE link for ideas).
  • Complete the maths and literacy tasks.
  • Complete the topic task



You could try some of the Real PE and Real Play activities with your family this week if you haven't already. Follow the PE link for more information. 



For Literacy today I would like you to use your home learning books (these were sent home before the school closed).

Please can you write sentences that include your weekly spellings. Try and use joined up handwriting, remember finger spaces, capital letters and full stops! Try and use a sticky conjunction to make your sentence longer. 

If possible send a picture of your work to the year 1 email address. 




Place value- Tens and ones


Please read through and complete the activities on the power point (below). Calculate the answers then reveal if you are correct.

Once you have worked through the power point, you must answer the fluency questions (below). These are split into 3 challenges - just like you are used to. D is challenge 1, E is challenge 2 and GD is challenge 3. Remember, challenge yourself to complete what you can. Please answer these in your exercise book - make a note of the date and question numbers. 

After completing the tasks, you can mark your answers (answers available below). 


Pretend you have been on a trip to Antarctica. Write a postcard to explain what your experience has been like. 

Do this in your home learning books. You could draw a picture. If possible  you could also send in a picture of your work to the year 1 email.
