Year 1 - Spring Term 2022

Home Learning during periods of self-isolation

 

Approximate Directed Activity Time - 1.5 to 2 hours per day. Please post work to Tapestry.

 

Ideally, every day we would like children to do the following: Detailed tasks are below.

 

English work - 40 mins

  • Read to an adult or older sibling for 10 minutes
  • Practise some spelling or phonic work with an adult for 10 minutes
  • Complete a writing task from the ideas below. 20 mins

Maths work - 40 mins

  • Practise counting forwards and backwards.
  • Spend around 10-15 minutes completing a maths task on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ (more detail below in the math section)

One piece of topic work - about 30 mins

  • · Complete one of our themed activities (Science, RE, Art, DT, )

 

 

Helping your child with home learning - what to do:

 

Reading (10 minutes).

· Please listen to your child read their school reading book or something similar. If you do not have a school reading book, you can use a picture book from home or an online book.

 

· Listen out for them reading confidently, without having to sound each word out individually.

 

· Can they read with expression? Please spend a few minutes talking about the book, what happened in the book, what they think about it and why etc.,

 

Phonics and Spelling (10 minutes)

· You can complete one of the spelling and phonics mats below (there are 3 different levels for each mat so that you can choose the best for your child) or · Visit Phonics Play

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/, which is a great site to continue reading words and applying sounds. You can access many games for free.

 

· We are learning to identify phase 5 sounds in words and spell words with these sounds. 

 

Writing (20 minutes)

· ‘Super Sentences’. The children should write at least 1 super sentence a day. This can be about anything they like. When they are writing ask them to practice what they want to say in their head before they write.

 

· Use a capital letter and full stop

 

· Leave spaces between words

 

· Sound out words and use the 'special friend' sounds they know. These sounds have 2 or 3 letters. Use the sound bank below if you need to. There may be more than one special friend that makes the same sound so write the word each way and spot the one that looks right from your reading. 

 

For some children one really good sentence is enough, some will be able and keen to write more. Go with your child’s level of confidence and ability - this should be a fun activity. We have included some story setting pictures below that you can use to write about if you would like, but you can write about anything.

 

Maths (30 minutes)

· Log onto https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ and select year 1 and spring term from the drop down menu. Select the current week (week 1 is 3/1/22, week 2 begins 10/1/22..)

. Children can follow the learning on the video and write their answers on a piece of paper or whiteboard. There is time built into the video for responding to questions but you can pause if longer time is needed.

 

· You could also count to 100 from any number and back.  

 

  • Begin counting in 10s, 2’s and 5’s.      2,4,6,8....... 5, 10, 15, 20...... 10, 20, 30, 40.....
