Year 1



In our maths lesson today we are going to be learning about how to find the missing number in an addition number sentence. You can choose how big you want your numbers to be today for the know it activity. Good luck!

Maths - Understanding tens and ones


Some of the children were unsure about tens and ones in yesterday's lesson so we're going to revisit tens and ones today. If you feel your child would benefit from this, then please follow the activities below. If you felt your child doesn't need this revision then complete the activities above. 


Watch the video from White rose maths below to explain tens and ones

Can you use this page to make the following numbers using tens and ones. What number have you made?

1 ten and 3 ones.   

2 tens and 5 ones

1 ten and 8 ones

3 tens and 1 one. 



Both of these two games supports the children reading numbers made with tens and ones. Would they like to play basketball or a shark game? See If they can count the number of tens and write it on a piece of paper or a whiteboard and then count the numbers of ones/cubes and write it next to it then read the number aloud. See the demonstration picture below.


There are two activities attached below. 

Activity 1 - Can you use the tens and ones apparatus to write the correct two digit number?

Activity 2 - (optional) Can you use your knowledge of tens and ones to answer some mastery questions. 


Please don't feel you need to print either of these, they can be discussed and the answers written on a piece of lined or plain paper. 

Spelling quiz

The weekly spelling quiz is a an opportunity to see which words your child can spell independently.

The spelling quiz should focus on the spelling words that were given out last Wednesday that match your child's ability (please see last Wednesday's home learning page for the spellings). 

The spelling quiz is held each Tuesday and if you would like to share the results of the quiz with your child's class teacher they can do this via class dojo.
The spelling quiz is carried out by an adult saying the word aloud and putting it into context (e.g. The word to spell is "plate", "can you put your plate in the sink?". Then the child can write it down and move onto the next word by repeating this process. 



Mindfulness focuses on paying attention to the present moment (thoughts and feelings) as well as the world around you. This can improve mental wellbeing. The link below is to classical music which is aimed at children in order to support relaxation and mental focus.



Today and tomorrow we would like to see just how much you have learnt about writing poems. So, we are setting you the challenge of writing a brand new poem independently. Today you could collect your ideas and then tomorrow you could write your poem.

PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) 


Our topic for this half term is Going for Goals. In today's session we are going to focus on exploring the ways in which we work best. Let's think about how we learn. Do you learn best when you are seeing how to do a task or when you are hearing about how to do a task or when you are doing the task yourself?


Task 1:

Today we are going to try some activities to see which way is the easiest for you to learn. 

Learning through sight:

Ask an adult to show you how to make a paper aeroplane without speaking (see below). Then try to have a go at making the paper aeroplane yourself. Is it easy or difficult to learn how to make the paper plane without any speaking, using only your sight?


Learning through hearing: 

Ask an adult to explain (through spoken instruction only) how to draw one of the shape robots below. For example, "draw a square in the middle of the page then draw a star inside the square". 


Learning through doing:

Without any help from an adult, can you look at the picture below and try to create your own dinosaur craft? 



Task 2: 

Now that you have completed task 1, can you discuss the following questions?

Which task was the easiest to complete? And why? (most successful at)

Which way do you prefer to learn? 

What helped you to learn in task 1?

What stopped you from learning in task 1?

What would have made learning easier in task 1?



P.E (Physical Education)
Today in P.E we are going to try a dance challenge (please see the link below). You can show your class teacher your amazing dance moves using class dojo (messages or portfolio). 


Can you copy the dance moves in the video below? smiley
