Hello everyone - Wednesday 24th June
A very good morning everyone. I trust you are all well and having a good week. It is a bit wet outside this week so maybe these activities will keep you busy inside! It is amazing the think that this is our last day of putting up work for you...time has gone so fast the end of term has arrived.
Let's get ready to work...you have been sharing lots of photos and telling me all the things you are getting up to at home. It is so great to see them all and I just love to see your topic work and lots of art and craft creations. Well done! Here are some letter and word work activities to get us started...
Vowel revisit....which vowel will I use? (a e i o u)
Let's remind ourselves of our letter sounds as we work out which ending sound to use
We have worked hard to go over lots of important key words we are learning by sight - here are some lists of ones we have covered to see how many you know and some extra to look out for as you read. You can use it as a tick list , write out the words, make up sentences using the words.... The link takes you to a key word 'look, read and say' activity
I have made up some sentences with lots of words for our 'read, think and answer' comprehension activity. Today it is all about a crab.
Our literacy tasks today focus on sentence work, a shared reading poem about some pirates, some word puzzles where we put two words together to make a new word and some work on the 'sh' sound...that is the same sound at the beginning of our sea animal focus today...I wonder what animal it will be?
There are lots of themed books to read together - don't forget to look out for some key words. The link takes you to some 'Under the Sea' books in the Animal section of ReadOn . Have you worked out the 'sh' animal....yes it has to be a shark...here are some books all about them. (Look up the website to see lots more books about animals as well as lots of other themes)
This link takes you to a site where we learn about sharks and how to draw them
Which shark is baby shark's mum? - Drawing Sharks
I think it's time to listen to a story about a shark and this one is another by Ruth Galloway who has written lots of our sea animal stories. The story today is called Smiley Shark (there is a musical intro / look out for the highlighted words)
Have a go at this Smiley Shark story activity
If you enjoyed that story here is a link to another called Smiley Shark and the great big Hiccup
Here are some more shark facts
Video of more Fun Shark Facts
We need to take care of our beautiful world and protect our oceans. We can all do things to help . Have a look at this poster to see what you could do?
Click the link to take you to an animated audio book where turtle and mermaid remind us to keep the oceans clean by Reducing Reusing and Recycling our waste - Save the Oceans
This picture story tells us about a little boy who tried to clean up the ocean to help protect all the sealife - A Whale's Tale
Have a look at the Map of the World and colour in all the land green and all the oceans blue...wow, such a lot of water we have to look after. Next time you are at the beach think what you can do to help protect our sea animals.
Here are some Numeracy tasks to get us counting, ordering and adding
Here are a few adding to 5 activities:
Here are some adding to 10 activities:
Here are a few other number tasks - connect the dots, count and colour and ordinal numbers
We have loved so much seeing all your art and craft work - here are some ideas you could use to make your own shark
We just could not finish all our shark work without hearing something...anyone know a song all about a baby shark? I think you may have heard it before ...sing along and do all the actions!
Thanks everyone - you have been great! That is all our topic work completed for the term. I hope you have enjoyed working and learning together with all our 'Under the Deep Blue Sea' tasks.
Maybe I will see you on Friday when you come for a quick visit to school to return school books - I have some of you class work ready to handover. It will hopefully be outside so come to our playground entrance.
Hello Year 1 - Monday 22nd June
I hope you all had a good weekend and it is so hard to believe that this is our last week of learning together in Year 1. This week we will complete some work idea on our 'Under the Deep Blue Sea' topic and I can't wait for one of my favourite books to share with you later....
We will start with a visit to some letter and vowel work. Remember to carefully sound out each letter, blend together and make new words.
We have looked at each letter of the alphabet and their associated sound - say the wound, write the letter and tick if you know. This link will take you to a booklet of Handwriting (12 pages , so only print if you think it is needed to help with letter formation) for both lower case and UPPERCASE letters.
Today we will look at another of our important words we are learning by sight - for
Our comprehension reading passage and questions is all about a boat
Our literacy tasks introduce our focus underwater animal today...clue..it's a big one! I'm sure you know which animal might appear in some of our work. Have a go and fix all the muddled sentences, read the poem, and use the PowerPoint presentation to make up your own Under the Deep Blue Sea story. Let's begin with some fact books - In ReadOn there are lots of sea themed books in the 'Under the Sea' section, this link will take you there....
Remember the story I mentioned, it's by one of our favourite authors Julia Donaldson and it is called 'The Snail and the Whale'. I hope you enjoy! You can listen to the story, watch the animated film all about the adventurous snail and his friend the huge whale and pick and choose some of the activities to do all about the story.
Link to the story of The Snail and the Whale
Link to BBC iplayer for Snail and the Whale film
Link to Julia Donaldson the author singing a song all about the Snail and the Whale
Another story about a huge fish is the Bible story about Jonah, some even think it was a whale that God used to rescue Jonah.
Who did swallow Jonah? Listen to the song to find out
Here is a colour by number activity about Jonah and the big fish
Have a go at some of these whale crafts?
If we take a trip to the beach we like to go on a sunny day when we can get out and play but we know we have to take care to protect our skin and our eyes from the strong rays of the sun. Here are a few sun safety activities.
In school we always keep a close eye on the clock to see what time it is...here are some time themed numeracy activities to remind us all about the clock face, telling the time - o'clock (and some half past). Have a look at the 'Telling the Time ideas' to have some fun together. This story introduces the time theme...
Link to ReadOn 'How do you Measure Time?' story
'On Time' maths game (need Adobe Flash Player)
Clock Face Tell the Time - (use analogue as opposed to digital) set time for -o’clock and child has to say what time it is – can add on 1 hour to see what time it is now…. Change time and tell

Further details are on Ms Robinson's letter on the home web page. This will hopefully be in the small playground for Year 1 and we will all try to stay at a safe social distance so 'air high 5's' ready to be given out!!
Some more pictures of all that is going on in Year 1 homes for you to enjoy! Great job everyone! Such super work ....you have all been very busy!
A huge thanks everyone for sharing some of your work, craft and adventures with us. It is so good to see all the hard work going on in Year 1. We are so very proud of you all. Well done!
Year 1 we need your help please.....
At this time of year in Year 1 we always have a little look back to remember some of the things we did and learnt throughout the year. Could you all please help us out...this year it will be a bit different , instead of our booklet of memories we want to compile a digital one so you can all share with each other. Could you please think of a memory / something you enjoyed doing or playing with / a favourite book or topic......your choice. Write it down, illustrate and hold it up for a photo. (we want to see your smiling face as well as your memory! Please send your ideas to us before the weekend so we can get them all together and you will see them next week. Wouldn't it be great if everyone could add to our collection, adults as well! Looking forward to seeing all your memories! Thank you.
Good Morning everyone - Wednesday 17th June
I hope you are all well and ready for some more activities. We will begin with a revisit to all our 5 vowel letters, a e i o and u. Think about their sounds and work out which one is best to use.
Our words today are if and of - can you hear the 'f' sound in both? They each have a different vowel letter to begin. Look out for these words in books as you read.
Today for our letter focus we have some matching activities - can you match up the CAPITAL letters (upper case )with the small letters (lower case). Look at names of people and places (signposts) to see capital letters at the beginning of words.
Our read and think about it comprehension text today is all about a rockpool.
Our story work in our literacy tasks today focus on a book called The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch by Ronda and Davis Armitage. There are lots of other books in this series by this author so if you enjoy it you can look up the others. The Lighthouse Keeper has a very important job to warn the boats that there are rocks nearby to help keep them safe. Have you ever seen a lighthouse?
Link to listen to The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch Story
Those seagulls were so hungry and a bit greedy too! Sometimes we see them at the seaside and they are always on the look out for food so watch out! Here is an idea of how to make a seagull using a paper plate.
Here is a challenge for you - why not build a lighthouse! How high can you make it? Can you make a coloured pattern on it? What about putting a torch on the top for a light to shine so bright? You could make one with a kitchen roll cylinder, a tube , a paper cup or a Pringles tub.
Miss Crawford and I love learning all about the different sea creatures and today we will look at another one - it is a SEAHORSE! They are so cute the way they swim so straight. Eric Carle, a famous author and illustrator, has written a book all about them....enjoy!
They are fascinating little animals - I hope you learnt some facts by listening to this story and maybe you might hear some more in this song or video clip?
Now can you fill in this fact chart all about seahorses with all your facts? What can they do? What have thy got? Seahorses are...? Have a go!
Here are some craft ideas all about seahorses - you have been so super at sending us photos of all your wonderful sea animal art and craft work! We love to see them! Maybe these photos will inspire you to make your own seahorse.
Here are some numeracy tasks to keep you counting!

For Fun Friday why don't you carry out your own floating and sinking experiment and record what you discover. You could use a basin, a paddling pool or the bath! Here are some floating and sinking activities to get us thinking... Lots of things float in the water, I hope you found some. You could use tinfoil to make a boat to float - try a few designs to see what works best.
Thanks everyone for all your hard work, for sending us e-mails to help keep us in touch and putting a smile on our faces when we see your lovely pictures. Don't forget to send your memory photo to us! Can't wait to see them. Until next week.... (hard to believe it's our last week of term)
Remember you can come up to school on Friday 26th June to collect any belongings left behind and return any school books (reading or library books). Further details are on Ms Robinson's letter on the home web page. This will hopefully be in the small playground for Year 1 and we will all try to stay at a safe social distance so 'air high 5's' ready to be given out!!
It's so good to see you all! Monday 15th June
I trust everyone had a good weekend. We are ready today for some more Under the Deep Blue Sea topic work. Let's start with some of our word and letter activities.
Our vowel focus today is the letter 'u' (remember we have looked at a e i and o and today is the fifth and final vowel u)
Our word today is off. Look out for it in your reading.
Our letter work today will remind us on some we have already looked at. It is important to go over them all to remind us of what sound they make and how to write them.
Our reading comprehension passage today is all about a sandcastle. Read carefully so you can answer all the questions.
As part of our topic literacy work we have our usual variety of tasks. Today we will be thinking about different jobs some people do at the seaside and on the water. Our animal focus today is a wibbly wobbly sea creature....can you guess? Yes, it's a jellyfish.
There are lots of different jobs at sea. A fisherman has a very busy job to travel out to the deep water and catch lots of fish. Did you see the photo of Poppy G above? She was fishing with her dad and caught a big fish! Jesus friends were fishermen but one night they had a problem...they could not catch any fish. Jesus was able to help them.This is the Bible story of 'the huge catch of fish'.
Let's watch and listen to the story about the Great Catch of Fish to see what happened. Here are some activities to match the story. You could also make your own story picture.
Another sea job is a sailor. I think you might have heard this song before.....
A very important job at the coast is a life guard and the lifeboat crew. They help keep us all safe when we are in the water. Have a read at our lifeboat story and think about all the different jobs...maybe you can think of some more!
Maybe you would like to be the Captain of a big ship? Can you remember we had a story about a Duck who got into trouble with his truck? We are going to meet him today again and this time he is in more trouble but he left his truck behind and went on goat's boat.....
The story of Captain Duck by Jez Alborough
I hope you enjoy these songs, stories, crafts and facts all about jellyfish. Maybe you will learn new facts as you watch and listen.
Watch an learn about Jellyfish facts
Here are some fun jellyfish songs:
This link to take you to a story called 'I am jellyfish'
Another book to read (in the ReadOn web library collection - Under the Sea, Animal section) This fact book is called Jellyfish
This book has lots of rhyming stories about lots of different sea creatures...Have a listen and look out for the jellyfish! Commotion in the Ocean
Here are some jellyfish craft ideas for you to try. They look good and I'm sure yours will too! This link will take you to a video clip with an art technique called salt painting. Hope you like the jellyfish salt creation!
How to paint a Jellyfish with salt

We hope everyone enjoyed Healthy Kidz Sports Day on Saturday 13th. Well done Year 1! I hope you heard us cheering you on!
Look who I bumped into at the weekend! Danny and Daisy said to tell all the Year 1's they miss you lots and were asking what you were up to. I was telling them of all the stories you have been sharing with us about your adventures, your work and your fun in the sun. They said to pass on a big 'hello to you all'. They have been enjoying reading lots of books and have written a message for you.
Please take a minute to look at this website which has a huge range of books, fact and fiction. It is split into different categories - just go to the library and browse the different sections. The information gives you the age range the books are for but there are some which you can do some shared reading together with your child https://readon.myon.co.uk/library/browse.html
I liked the story about 'Goldie' the Goldfish and another called 'Ava the Angelfish' (in the 'animal' section and in the category 'Under the Sea'). Another I enjoyed was in 'Maths Fun' in the 'counting' section and is called 'One Giant Splash'....have a look, a browse and a read! Enjoy
A very good morning to all in Year 1 - Wednesday 10th June
Hello again everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and are ready for some more Under the Deep Blue Sea activities. Enjoy!
Our next focus vowel is the letter 'o' and later on we will learn lots about another sea creature - this time it will be an octopus. Did you hear the sound at the beginning of his name? I heard and 'o' some words begin with that letter and we also hear it in the middle of some words. Let's see if we can hear it...
It is important to keep going over all the individual letters we have covered, to recognise them by sight and know their associated sound. We also can keep writing them remembering where to start and what direction to go. Here are some activities to help us go over them.
Today for our key word work we will go over the last group we have been focusing on. This will help with our recognition and quick recall to promote fluency in our reading. This set of words include: so go no big little into by here you your
Our read and think comprehension story today is all about a little fish
This little story is called A Day at the Beach and will get us ready to think about all the things we might do or see on a trip to the beach.
Our Literacy activities focus on the beach and maybe you can remember when you went to visit the beach or maybe you stayed there on your holidays. I love going to visit the beach. Think about - How you got there? What did you do? What did you see? One of my favourite things to do is explore the rockpools and see what I can find. Use the rockpool wordmat to help you write a story or what about drawing a rookpool and labeling all the things you might see in it? Please send them to us so we can have a look at your lovely pictures and your neat writing!
Exploring a Rockpool video - can you see a starfish or an octopus?
Remember the clue on Monday was that our sea creature would be tickly....did you think of an octopus? Let's enjoy this story about A Tickly Octopus
Here are some more fascinating fun facts about an octopus
At the top of this page we have been sharing an online library packed with books through the Readon website. I was reading some books in the Animal section and the Under the Sea book collection. I enjoyed these books and I was able to find out more about these amazing creatures:
In our numeracy activities we will be looking at number words - one two three four five....does it make you think of a little rhyme about going fishing?
In our Readon e-book library there are some number word stories in the Maths Fun - counting section. Have a read-
Here are some addition activities with a fishy theme:
This link will take you to an ICT 10 frame game - drag the red/green counters into the 10 frame. Now make up a story sum to match
This rhyme is about 5 Little Octopus jumping on the bed
This octopus counting activity to add suckers on each of the eight tentacles looks fun - you could stick on bubble wrap / use finger prints or just draw.... Someone could call out a sum and you could add all the suckers together to help work out the answer.
So many of you have been sharing such super art work - you sure are a creative bunch! Here are some octopus ideas to give you some inspiration for a Fun Friday octopus activity:
Hello Year 1 - Monday 8th June
I hope your are all keeping well and had a great weekend. Thanks so much to everyone for getting in touch with us and letting us know what you were doing. There has been a lot of work going on....well done such hard workers in Year 1! We heard of some perfecting sprints and races ready for sports day, BBQ's and paddling pools in the sunshine, baking, gardening, movie nights, craft work, helping on the farm....wow such talented kids! Here are some photos of you in action, thanks for sharing.
The fish pictures are great - anyone else who has got one please send our way and we will be happy to share so all your friends can see! Today we will begin with our usual letter work and we will focus on the vowel letter i...remember how we sometimes call it Inky i after poor wee Inky mouse who got his name the day ink spilt all over him. Look out for him in the middle of these words.
It is important to go over all the letters of the alphabet and recognize the associated sound for each letter as well as how to write it - here are some recap activities to help us remember them.
We have been very busy learning lots of important words recognizing them by sight so if we see them in our reading we will know them. Today we will learn the words you and your.
We have started some comprehension activities to help us read and think about the story. There are some questions to answer to see what we remember - the story today is called 'the little mouse'
I am really enjoying all the different things about our Under the Deep Blue Sea topic and I hope you are too. Ella B has been telling us that she loves to watch Maddie Moate and Greg on YouTube exploring lots of things in their 'Ocean Week' programmes (May 2020) Please tune in to see what they have been sharing. Today we will be looking at another sea creature....what out it does not nip!....yes it's a crab! I hope you like the crab themed stories and activities. There are lots of different types of crab. Follow the link to see some crabs and find out some facts.
Why not do a 'crab walk' watch to see how it's done...be careful!
Watch 'The Adventures of Crab' to see what he is up to - there are no words to tell us but I know you will be a great story teller and make up your own story to match. Have a try!
Here are some more songs to enjoy....
One of my favourite crab stories is by Ruth Galloway and she has given it the title Clumsy Crab. Yesterday I was a but clumsy and I hit my toe on the cupboard, I had no shoes on so it was very sore....did you hear me shout! I will try to look where I am going next time! Let's see what adventures Clumsy Crab went on.
Our next story is called Sharing a Shell by author Julia Donaldson. If you had a shell would you share? Well let's find out about a crab who lived in a shell (remember that is a hermit crab).
Use the PowerPoint to retell the story remembering to add in as many details and descriptive words as you can. Pick some fun things to do about this story....
If you enjoyed finding out about crab in his shell you might like to listen to this story called:

Good Morning everyone - Wednesday 3rd June
I trust you are all enjoying the lovely sunny weather. Here are some letter and word tasks to get us all started....
Today we will look at words with the vowel 'e' hiding in the middle - can you hear it as you sound out all the words? Here is a little song to help us with our sounds - Vowel 'e' song
Our word today is 'here'. Try to think of how you can use it in sentences and look out for it in stories.
Here is a comprehension reading activity and some questions to answer. There will be words in the story we have learnt so try your best to 'have a go' and read it. Remember all the details in the story.
We use lots of different words to describe where things are - in, on, above, below. Unmuddle the sentences and look at the picture to describe where things are.
Can you think of all the different types of transport that can travel on water?
Here are some songs about travelling:
We all go travelling by - look out for the little green boat on the water
You could try and make a picture of a boat on the water - I like the paper waves in this one.
Can you think of an animal that lives in the sea but is not a fish, it can be found all over the world and often lives deep in the ocean. It has 5 or more arms and the amazing thing is they grow back if one comes off! They come in all sizes and colours. Do you think you know what animal I'm thinking about? Yes its a starfish. When I was a little girl I remember finding some sitting on some rocks at the beach. Have you ever seen one? Let's find out more about them....
click here to look and read the Starfish fact book
Some more Starfish Facts
There are lots of different types of Starfish
Here is a story about Felix who wants to Save the Starfish
This song reminds us that we are all different, and so special...just like the starfish..One of a Kind
Get moving to this Starfish Song
Remember as part of our Colourful World topic we enjoyed the story of Rainbow Fish. It was a class favourite and I thought we could look at it again.
Look and Listen to the story by Marcus Pfister - Rainbow Fish
Listen to this song about Rainbow Fish
We love to draw and I thought you would like to see how to draw a fish
Here are some Numeracy tasks for you.
This link takes you to a Rainbow Fish Maths Game
I hope you have lots of fun with all these different tasks - remember to email us some of your photos to let us see what you are up to...splashing in paddling pools like fish or why don't you make a Rainbow Fish to let us see your art work
Look after each other and take care xx
Oh, we better not forget about a Fun Friday activity.... as I was thinking about Rainbow Fish and his colourful scales I thought this experiment would be good to see all the colours travelling..Have a look and maybe you could have a go.
Rainbow Water STEM activity
See what some of you friends have been doing this past few days..... You are working so hard ......well done everyone!
Hello Year 1 - Monday 1st June
I trust you are all well and had a great weekend. The sun has been shining and I'm sure you have had lots of fun outside. A huge well done to you all for all your hard work with our last topic. I really enjoyed all the different things we learnt in our Jack and the Beanstalk topic .... I hope you did too.
Remember I said we were going to start a new topic this week, well it's a new month so I hope you are ready to find out more about ,,,,,,UNDER THE DEEP BLUE SEA! As usual we will start our work with some letter, sound and word activities before some topic tasks. We have been looking at every letter of the alphabet and the sound it makes and how to write it. You have been very busy learning them all. Next we will look at 5 special letters a e i o and u. They are called vowels. We see them in lots of words. We will look at each one, today it is the turn of letter a.
Our word focus is a little 2 letter word - by
This is a reading activity and some questions to answer. There will be words in the story we have learnt so try your best to 'have a go' and read it. Remember all the details in the story. Sometimes we call it comprehension.
Today as part of our new topic Under the Deep Blue Sea we will think of some fish facts. One of my favourite stories to read in Year 1 is a book by Ruth Galloway called Fidgety Fish. I hope you like it...
If you want to read more of Tiddler's sea adventures have a look at another story he is in
Here are some Literacy tasks
Just like our bodies have different parts that all do different jobs, a fish has also different parts to his body. Do you know what they are all called?
Click to a link called 'I spy' and we can find out more then have a go and label your own fish
We will be learning lots about the World Around Us (WAU) in this topic - I know lots of Year 1 boys and girls love finding out about animal facts so I thought you world like to learn more about fish:
These action songs will get you moving....
These Numeracy tasks involve fish -counting, adding, sorting....
Why not try this 'Let's go fishing' game - number fish shapes and add a paper clip. Use a 'rod' with a magnet attached and see what number you catch (add numbers together if if get lots!) You can also make some fish to swim in a bowl and number them. Someone could make one swim away and you have to work out which is missing /put in the correct order / add 2 fish together. For the 'Flapping Fish' game - draw a fish out of thin paper, cut it out, now use a bit of card to flap the air around it to see if you can get it to move. You could make another and have a race to see how far they can go!
This 10 Little Fishies Song is lots of fun as they add all the fish together. Count along!
Lots of you like to make things so maybe these ideas will encourage your creative art and craft talents!
I think we will have good fun learning more about this topic...We will finish off with a fun song today which has lots of sea animals in it. Maybe we will find out some facts about them too! Take care and 'see' you all very soon!
Here are some more of your photos you sent in of all the things you have been up to...looking forward to seeing some more this week!
Good Morning Year 1 - Wednesday 27th May
We have been learning together in the month of May about Jack and the Beanstalk. I hope you have enjoyed all our tasks. Today we will revisit some of the ideas from the story and continue our learning. As usual we will begin with some letter and sound work. We will go over all the sounds to see what ones we know and which to continue working on. Try to write the letters remembering to use the correct formation. Play 'I spy' using the letter sound to focus on some sounds / look for letters on packaging or in books / circle letters in newspapers or magazines...
Link to Jolly Phonics website - click on each letter to hear the sound (focus on group 1, 2, 3 as well as letters j z w v y x qu
Our key word today is special as it is two words together to make a new word. 'in' and 'to' together make 'into'
This link takes us to the Jack and the Beanstalk story (split up into different part) and there is also a link to 'useful resources' which some may find helpful. You could retell the story in your own words - use lots of detail and describing words to talk about characters and events.
Here are some topic related Literacy activities
Can you think of a musical instrument in our Jack and the beanstalk story? Maybe you can play an instrument? Miss Crawford plays the piano....look at the musical instrument PowerPoint to see and hear her in action!
Link to BBC Bitesize lesson on Body Percussion
Link to BBC Listening game about Musical Instruments
In the story we can think about how different characters feel. We all feel different at different times and in different situations. It is important to talk to our family and tell them how we are feeling. Listen to these stories about Feelings and Emotions:
Here are some Numeracy activities to do - in the I spy game look at the picture page first to help you work out the sums. Jack had to go up and down the beanstalk so I thought a game of snakes and ladders would be a good 'Fun Friday' activity to see who goes up the ladder or down the snake.
Thanks everyone for all your hard work. Remember to adjust and adapt the work to suit your needs. Please feel free to send us some photos of you, your work or a 'hello' message. Until next time....and remember next week it's a new topic...clue.... we are going to the deep blue sea!
Look at all the great work Year 1 have been getting up to. Huge thanks everyone for all your e-mail messages and photos. Miss Crawford and Miss Douglas just love to see you all having fun, working hard and enjoying our topic.
Happy Bank Holiday Monday 25th May
Hello everyone I hope you are all having a lovely long weekend. Here are a few ideas of things to do until our last Jack and the Beanstalk on-line work pack on Wednesday.
I hope you have been enjoying the themed songs - the final one is called 'We're Rich!'
We have been talking about beans and all sorts of vegetables. Many of you are telling me about your vegetables you have planted and are looking after in your gardens. My spinach and beetroot are growing well! The story today is about a vegetable - it's green...it grows in a pod...yes, it's a pea. Have you ever heard about the Princess and the Pea? Have a listen:
Fun with Feet: The giant had very big feet - you could measure everybody's feet in your house to see who has the biggest feet - order shoes starting at the biggest to the smallest - use a shoe to measure things in your house e.g. how many shoes long is the sofa? Now try the bed or the bath - count everybody's feet - now count in 2's - 2 4 6 8 10....
Have a listen to this story about - The BIg Foot Mystery
Here are some literacy focused tasks:
Enjoy the counting and addition activities called 'Lets go Berry Picking'
This song reminds us of the numbers 1 - 20....have a listen 'Counting to 20'
Hello to everyone in Year 1 - Wednesday 20th May
It is so lovely to 'meet up' again this morning with you all. I hope you had a good time with all our giant ideas. The picture gallery is looking great with all your photographs. Many thanks to everyone for sending in their contributions...so good to see each other!
Let's begin our day with some more letter, sound and word work.
We have worked so hard we have nearly completed every letter in the alphabet. Do you remember how many letters there are in it? Yes it is 26. Today we will look at the letter v and also remind ourselves of a few others.
Sight words are so important to learn and this reading activity helps revisit some words we have looked at before to remind us...have a read
Our word work today has two words that are the opposite of each other. They describe Jack and the giant...do you think you know what they could be? today we will look at big and little. Can you think of things that are big and little?
Good work so far! Today as part of our Jack and the Beanstalk topic we are thinking all about money. Some coins are silver and some are gold. Maybe you have been saving lots of money in your piggy back...well done! Maybe you like to spend it on little treats. Well Jack and his mum at the beginning of the story had very little money but at the end they had lots...they were rich!
Here are some literacy tasks all about money and gold. We would love to see your suggestions of what you would buy in the activity 'if I had a pot of gold'...please send your work our way : )
Jesus tells a story in the Bible about a lady who lost a special silver coin. She was so sad and had to look for it everywhere. Let's listen to the story -
Here are some activities all about this story -
Listen to this rhyming story all about a Bunny and his money..........listen out for all the words that rhyme.
Next we will think about some numeracy activities and no prizes for what our work will be about today......Yes, you are clever....it's all about money!
This PowerPoint is all about some coins we might see in our piggy banks. Let's find out more..
Click the link to find out more about coins (1p to £2) - Recognising Coins
Here is a story all about spending your money at the shop - Money Story

Money ideas (always remember to wash your hands if you are handling money........ask mum and dad first!)
- Look at some coins. Design your own. What shape will it be? Whose picture will you put on it? How much will it be worth?
- Use paper and pencils or crayons to make coin rubbing - put the coins under the paper and you will see the pattern appear if you gently rub over the top with your pencil
- Sort coins into groups according to their colour / shape / value
- Make a money box to keep all your coins. Here is an idea...but there is a problem....you have to eat all the Pringles first!
Well done Year 1...that was a lot of money work! I hope you will have good fun with all the activities. Remember parents do what you can, when and how you can! Part of our weekly routine in the Year 1 classroom is our Fun Friday activity and it is no different for on-line learning, here is our challenge this week. Mum's and dads we will need your help. We love to do little experiments in Year 1 and this week we are going to be scientists and find out what cleans coins - so start saving all those grubby pennies.
Watch and listen to find out more about cleaning coins...now you could try to do it yourself!
Good job everyone! Thanks for all your hard work. Monday is a bank holiday but we will pop up some activities for you to do on Tuesday then as usual more on Wednedsay (that will be our last day of Jack and the Beanstalk...I wonder what we will be learning about next?)
Enjoy the rest of your week
Missing you all!
Miss Douglas, Miss Crawford, Mrs Cowan and Mrs McMahon xxxx
It's Monday 18th May - Good Morning everyone!
Back again! Good to 'see' you all ready for some work to do together. I hope you had a great weekend. Maybe you had fun doing our shape scavenger hunt challenge.
Thank you to everyone who sent in Jack and the Beanstalk photos....wow, they are great! There are some works of art when it comes to castle construction! Can you spot Mrs Cowan's castle mono-print painting?
Today we will start with our letter and word work. Remember if you are unable to print just adapt...look at the screen and chat...write on paper....whatever works best for you! We are learning how to write and say the sounds to match letters j and q
Sight words are so important to learn and this reading activity helps revisit some words we have looked at before to remind us...have a read
we continue a new word focus today with the word no - it is easy to get it mixed up with one we already know - on so we will look at them together...remember which sound comes first.
Our theme today in our Jack and the Beanstalk topic work is giants.....Fee Fi Fo Fum....watch out or he might come!
Can you think of lots of words to describe the giant in the Jack and the Beanstalk story? Let's look at other giant stories, here two of my favourites.
A Bible story about a little boy David and a big giant called Goliath
I remember singing this song at Sunday School, maybe you know it. Have a listen and sing along
The other giant story I enjoy is about a kind, huge giant called George who was very smart.
The author of the book is Julia Donaldson (She also wrote the 'Gruffalo') and she loves to sing along with her husband Malcolm - listen as they sing about George the Smartest Giant in Town.
Here are a few more literacy tasks
Here are two numeracy tasks - you could make 2 spinners (draw out the numbers in a circle, hold a pencil with the lead in the middle and a paper clip attached. Now spin the paperclip to see what number you get. Do it again and add the two numbers together.
I love jelly beans - maybe Jack did too. Look at how he works out his adding sums with the jellybeans (you could try this but just use counters instead of sweets!)
Look at the 'I spy pictures' first then add up all the different things you see.
David used 5 little stones in his sling to fight Goliath - here are some ideas we can have fun with and use our counting skills.
- get lots of little stone and put them into sets of 5, now counts in 5's - 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 35, 40.....
- measure stones in order of size - set then in a row starting with the smallest
- measure stones in order of weight - set them in a row starting with the lightest - use your hand to feel their weight ...don't lift any too heavy or they might fall on your toes!
- make a stone stack - how many can you get to balance on each other to make a tower (where do you think the biggest one needs to go, top or bottom?
- write numbers on stones and put in the correct order, start with number 1 first. Now can you go backwards starting with the highest number? Hide a stone - get someone in your family to work out which one is missing? Can you work it out when they hide one on you?
Have you ever heard of a giant called Finn MacCool? Some say he lived a long time ago. Listen to the story and decide if he is a real or imaginary character? Draw what you think he looked like. Would you like to meet him?
You might see him in the Giant's Causeway near Portrush next time you visit!
Here is the next song in our Jack and the Beanstalk series...sing along!
Try this action song about Jack and the Giant - move your body to match the characters!
Here are some little ideas which you may enjoy doing. They link in with the David and Goliath Bible story we heard.
Until next time - take care and keep up the great work everyone. We are so proud of you all!
Hello Year 1 - Wednesday 13th May
I hope you have fun with some of the growing activities this week. There are lots more 'Jack and the Beanstalk' adventures to find out about over the next few days. The photos of your work and adventures are great - Miss Crawford and I love to see what you are all up to! Well done those who have been keeping their 5 A-DAY fruit and vegetable chart...we will put up some photos when you email them to us.
Let's learn some more letter and word work
Our letter focus today is y and z. Sometimes the letter 'y' plays tricks with its sound at the end of words but we will think of the sound it makes at the beginning of some words. 'z' is a letter we do not see very often in words. Think about the sound and how to write (don't forget to look up Jolly Phonics on YouTube to hear the songs)
Here are some more sentences to go over reminding us of our important key words we want to be able to recognize in our reading. Don't forget to keep looking at some of the e-books online (see reading e-book guide on 20/04/20)
Our new key words to focus on today are - so and go. See if you can find them in any of your books
Our 'Jack and the Beanstalk' topic continues and today we focus on castles! I can't wait! I remember being so excited as a little girl when my family went to visit castles,,,I think my favourite one is Dunluce near Portrush. Have you ever seen a castle? Sometimes we read about castles in stories - do you remember the time we read Cinderella...she went to live in a castle when she married the prince. Well Jack got such a surprise when he found a castle at the top of his huge beanstalk.... Here are some literacy tasks for you to work on....
Listen to the stories, one is about Eric a brave Knight and the other about a girl called Lola who built a sandcastle.
Our Numeracy focus will be on shapes - why not design and build a castle of your own! Send us some pictures of your masterpieces - you could draw a castle / use 2D shapes to design a castle / use blocks to print a castle picture / use lego or construction toys to build a castle / use junk material to build a castle / or why not if you have a sand tray build a super sandcastle structure! What a choice! Mrs Cowan's favourite castle activity in school is to paint a mono-print castle - she paints the table with grey paint (I know it's messy but fun!) then with her finger she draws a castle in the paint. Next she gets a page and sets it on top and hey presto she has a castle mono-print picture!
I like this idea of how to make a castle number line - you can use a lego character etc to count forwards for addition sums and count backwards for takeaway sums. Get someone to call out a sum and you can carefully jump your 'knight' up or down the number line to match. You could then have a go and write down the sum when you work out the answer.
Enjoy listening to this addition counting song
Here is the next song in our Jack and the Beanstalk series and today's is called 'Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum', and one about who lives in a castle. Enjoy!
Our Fun Friday activity this week is a shape scavenger hunt. Get an adult to help you read the clues then go looking! Keep an look out for lots of different shapes all around you.
Well done for all those who signed up to the Virtual Sport's Day challenge! Good job! If you are still interested in joining please register before Monday 18th. Looking forward to next time we 'meet' on-line. Have fun with all these work tasks - you are doing a brilliant job so just keep it up! Have fun and keep safe. Lots of love from Miss Douglas, Miss Crawford, Mrs Cowan and Mrs McMahon .....Missing you all xx
The Year 1 crew have had a lot to do! We are super impressed to see all the things you have been up to at home and so proud of you all!
Good Morning Year 1 - Monday 11th May
I hope you all have had a great weekend. Maybe you were playing in the garden and found some mini-beasts or planting flowers and vegetables? Today our work will be based around growing............I don't think my vegetables will grow as tall as Jack's beanstalk!
First we will look at some letter, sound and word work.
Today our letter focus is on w and x. Remember to learn the matching sound as well as how to write the letter. Say 'x' as in 'kiss', say it softly: fox in a box / Go for a 'w' walk - I wonder how many 'w' words you will find on your wander?
Together we have been learning some very important key words so we know them when we see them in our reading. Let's go over the last ten we have been looking at. You can write them our, put them in a sentence, make them with magnetic letters, find them in books....
Here are some sentences using key words we can recognize by sight. Have a go and read them.
Here are some literacy focus tasks all about our theme of growing.
Jasper thought he would plant a beanstalk in Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen's book. Have a read to see what happened
Find out more about parts of a plant and the life cycle from seed to a flower in these video clips
One of my favourite stories for this topic is 'The Tiny Seed' by Eric Carle. I love finding out about the journey of the seeds. I hope you like it too!
These Numeracy tasks focus on height, measuring, comparing and ordering.
Here are some links to BBC Bitesize
We have enjoyed all the Jack and the Beanstalk songs - this one today is called 'And he went higher!' Sing along
This PDMU link helps us remember that we are always growing too ...just like Jack's beanstalk
Thank you everyone for working so hard. Take care and see you again on Wednesday!
Hello Year 1 - Wednesday 6th May
I hope you and all your family are keeping well and you are ready to get going with some more activities. As usual we will start with some letter and word work. Let's have a look over Jolly Phonics set 3 sounds to remind ourselves of each individual sound - remember to learn how to write them as well as sound them out. g o u f l b You can listen to songs on YouTube of all the sounds. Remember you don't have to print out everything - you can talk about the tasks, 'show and tell' on the screen or copy out the answers....whatever is best for you.
Here are some more sight word sentences to help reinforce important key words we have already looked at
Our key word focus is was and are
Click to have some fun with Alphablocks as they use sounds to work out words - help them blend the sound together. Click to link
our work today will focus on vegetables. We know the Jack and the Beanstalk story is all about beans. I love eating beans...my favourite is runner beans but I also love broad beans, baked beans, butter beans, kidney beans.....such a lot of beans! Do you have a favourite bean? Jack's beanstalk sure did grow so tall! At this time of year lots of things are growing in our gardens. I wonder what is growing in yours? Listen to the story of the turnip which grew and grew .... I think you will be able to listen out for lots of rhyming words.
I have been planting things in my garden...I hope they grow! This week I planted some vegetables - spinach and beetroot...they are not the size of Jack's beanstalk yet but maybe some day!
A little boy called Oliver finds out all about vegetables in our story. Have a listen....
In the story Oliver ate different vegetables each day of the week. Listen to the Days of the Week song.
I have an idea - could you make out a chart for every day of the week? - add words or pictures of fruit and vegetables to show me what you eat/drink....remember 5 a day! Why don't you email your chart to me so I can see it.
Here are some literacy ideas for activities you can do about our story and the theme of growing.

Hello Year 1! Wednesday 22nd April 2020
Good job everyone for working so hard with all your work. A big pat on the back for you! You can give one to the adult who helped you.
Miss Crawford and I have been busy doing our 'signs of spring' mind-maps. Have a look at ours to see if you had any ideas the same as us.
Now that home learning has commenced online here is our contact c2k email addresses
In the unprecedented circumstances we face, unfortunately we will not be able to mark all set work and give pupil feedback that normally occurs in the life a classroom. Only work requested by the teacher will be required to be forwarded via the teacher school e-mail address. If you do not wish or it does not suit you to send work, there is no obligation to do so.
Please feel free to email any spring mindmaps to Miss Douglas - I would love to see your ideas
Watch this spring PowerPoint to learn more about the season of spring.
Why don't you do these tasks below for our Fun Friday challenge. Enjoy!
Here are some literacy activities focusing on important key words
Our theme today is all about the Jez Alborough story 'Duck in a Truck'. Its one of my favourites - listen to the story in the link below
Have a go at some of these Duck and a Truck activities
Other Jez Alborough books are available if you enjoyed this one. Look up some of these titles to see other adventures the duck gets up to.
Listen to this song about '5 Little Ducks' who love to go swimming
Help duck do these number tasks
- use your feed to waddle like a duck and walk around your house. Count how many duck steps it takes you to get from room to room. Remember to start at the same place every time so you can compare. Which room took less steps? / which room took more steps?
- Get a toy truck or other vehicles (if you have none use a piece of lego etc.) and measure how far it can go. Look at the picture to give you an idea of how it works. Remember to hold the tube at different heights to see if it makes a difference (you can use a short or a long tube)
We love learning new facts - listen to this and you might learn new things all about ducks
If you feel creative why don't you make a duck swimming int the water - this picture will help you. You can use a paper plate (or just a circle of paper), colour in the plate to make it look like water and sky. Cut a slit in the middle and attach a duck to a lollipop stick. Now help your duck to go for a swim.
