Year 1


For our final maths lesson of the week we will be finding, learning and practising number bonds to 20. See if you can find them all and then learn them. We will be thinking about how we can use our number bonds to 10 to help us too.



In Key Stage One phonics is taught in phonics groups rather than classes.  Your child will know who their phonics teacher is, but if you need clarification please message your child's class teacher on class dojo for confirmation. 

Please see the links below to watch today's phonics lesson.

Sentence writing -



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 a guided mindfulness session aimed at children in order to support relaxation and mental focus.



Today we are going to get one step closer to writing our winter poem for the bear by turning our ideas from yesterday into sentences. You will need your work from yesterday to help you. 



  • Observe or handle evidence to ask questions and find answers to questions about the past.
  • Use artefacts, pictures, stories, online sources and databases to find out about the past.


Let's find out some facts about dinosaurs in the past. Today we are going to research one or more dinosaurs to find out their length, weight, height and a fun fact. 

We will then present the information we've researched. You could make a short film of the chosen dinosaur, a dinosaur powerpoint or a poster of the dinosaur with these facts around the outside edge. (An example one is attached below) Can you use information in books, the internet, posters or magazines to research something from the past?


  • First, choose the dinosaur you would like to learn more about. The dinosaur's pictures below are also attached as a PDF below. 
  • Find out the length, weight, height and a fun fact about your dinosaur. You could use the internet if supervised, look in a dinosaur book if you have one at home or use the information fact cards attached below. 
  • Here are some dinosaur websites with facts to help you.

  • You could make a short film of the chosen dinosaur, a dinosaur powerpoint or a poster of the dinosaur with these facts around the outside edge. (See Triceratops example below)


Extension (Optional)- Can you find a dinosaur which is smaller in length than your dinosaur? Can you work out the difference between their lengths? e.g. An Apatosaurus is 12m longer than a Stegosaurus.  

Shared reading 

I can make sensible guesses about what sort of text this might be and what it might be about. 


Let's have a look at the front cover of this book together. See if you can talk through these questions with someone in your family. 

  •  Can you tell me the title of this book?
  • What sort of book/text do you think this will be? e.g. I think this is going to be a.....

(Your child may use words such as: story, information book, fact book, fiction or non-fiction)

  •  What can you see on the front cover which has given you a clue to help with your prediction? 
  • Are all the dinosaurs on the front cover the same? How are they different?
  • Who are the discovery squad? Why are they on the front cover?



Story time 

Each day there will be a story or poem read to the children by a member of the Key Stage One team. 

Please see the link below for the story today. We hope you enjoy it.
