Good Morning Year 1 and happy Tuesday :)


Our suggestion for your day:  


0900-0930 - Reading  

Choose a book of your choice to read to yourself or to someone in your family - you could log on to Tapestry to a story read by a mystery teacher!   


0930-1000- Maths Challenge  

Today you will be playing a game called Splat to practise counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. 


1000-10:10 – Handwriting  

Check Tapestry for today's letter.  

Write the long date at the top of your writing books. Watch the video online and then practise writing the letter in your books. You should practise writing for at least 5 minutes. Remember to always start your lead ins on the line.  


10:10-11.10 Snack Time and Learning Choice Time  

Have one healthy snack: a banana, apple, orange etc. with a glass of milk or water. Make your own learning choice, there are ideas on the grid on our man learning page.  


1115-1200 – Phonics  

 Log onto tapestry and watch the speed sound videos. 

If you would like, we have attached a new document with some phonics game ideas for you to play instead of writing sentences. These can be found on the Year 1 home page. Try and write sentences at least twice a week!


1300- 1330 – PE  

Choose an online work, play in the garden or go for a cycle, scoot, walk or run!  


1330 Enquiry and Learning Choice Time  

Over the next 3 days, you will be learning about the 5 different oceans. To help you with this watch the Five Oceans Song daily. 

You will then complete an ocean learning choice based on the ocean you are learning about. To help you with this research, we have listed 3 key features of each ocean which you could research.  


Today, you are going to be learning about the Atlantic and Southern Ocean.
