Home Learning

 Please see below links to supplement home learning for Year 1.  

Here is a list of links to Maths, Literacy and Phonics/Spelling activities and games that you can try at home...



  • Practise writing sentences about what you have been doing this week. Don't forget your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops! Why not add adjectives (huge/tiny), conjunctions (and/because/but/so) and punctuation (question marks/exclamation marks) to make writing shine!
  •  Create wordsearches and puzzles using your own word lists at http://puzzlemaker.discoveryeducation.com/
  • Write a special note to someone in your family and leave it for them to find
  • Keep a diary of what you have been doing at home. Don't forget to include -ed words (jumped/raced) to make your writing even more amazing!
  • Encourage children to write at every opportunity available, this could be a shopping list, a letter or email to someone in self-isolation or writing a to-do list for the day



In your Home Learning packs there is the Common Exception Words sheet for Year 1 and Year 2. The expectation is that children will be able to read and spell these words by the time they leave Key Stage 1, so this is a good place to start . Advice and support for parents on spelling can be found at https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/english/primary-spelling/ 


  • Messy Little Monster have a huge range of fun arts and crafts ideas at https://www.messylittlemonster.com/
  • Challenge yourself to build using lego or blocks. Can you find a famous building or structure to take inspiration from? Can anyone build the Eiffel Tower?
  • Go on a Spring walk-what signs of Spring can you see? Could you record this in a home diary or draw a picture?
  • Have some fun with drawing lessons by illustrator Rob Biddulph http://www.robbiddulph.com/draw-with-rob
