Good morning Year One.

We hope you all had another good day yesterday.

Here are your tasks for today.



You might like to start your day with the Joe Wicks workout on You Tube.

If you prefer, you could try something more relaxing:




Today, you are going to write your diary entry as an eyewitness to the Great Fire of London. Using your ideas from the last two days, your task is to describe what you experienced.

Imagine sitting in the safety of a boat on the River Thames and think back on what you saw, heard and how you felt.  You are going to write your diary as though this event has just happened.

There are some examples of sentences starters to help you out, if you need them, on the sheet below.

There are also some sheets of paper you can print off (if you want to, you don’t have to) with some old looking, burnt paper. There are different types of lines on each page, so select the one that is most appropriate. You may have already created your own ‘old’ looking paper, if you have chosen to do so from the Foundation subject grid. If you have done this on plain paper, it might be helpful to draw some lines for your child to write on and help them produce their neatest writing.


In your diary writing please include:

*What you saw

*What you heard

*How you felt




*Adverbs (include how something happened.  They often end in -ly for example- quickly, slowly, helpfully, wildly, sadly, angrily, safely, carefully...)

*A simile (comparison between to things - using the words 'as' or 'like')



Continue to learn your spellings. They focus on the spelling rule for adding ‘ed’-

If a word ends in a short vowel sound (a, e, i, o, u) + a consonant, we double the consonant before adding –ed


clap – clapped

grab – grabbed

stop – stopped

drag – dragged

trot – trotted

plan – planned


If your child is finding this new rule tricky, focus on spelling the root word and quiz on these rather than the word with –ed added.

*You might want to discuss that when a word ends in two consonants, we just add –ed.

Such as in: painted, hunted, jumped, buzzed…



Here is a phonics game to play.

Sort the real words into the treasure chest and the alien words into the bin!

Start with phase three sounds and then move on to the others.


Also below, you will find a booklet with some words with blends- if you prefer not to print off the booklet, simply ask your child to blend and read the words on a screen.

Read Write Inc – Phonics lesson of the day


You might also like to watch the new, daily Ruth Miskin phonics lesson- they focus on a different sound each day.



Today we are continuing to consolidate the letter formation of the ‘ladder letters’: l i j t u y

If your child is starting these letters in the correct position (the top of the letter) then they can begin to start working on the pre-cursive letter formation and start their letters on the line.

In this power point you can select the letter you would like to learn, watch how to form it and then have a go in your handwriting books.

Today you might like to focus on writing patterns such as: l t l t        u y u y       j t l j t l


Please try to read for at least 10 minutes at some point today.




If you follow the link below, you will find the usual video lesson on the White Rose Maths website.

Go to the week 5 set of lessons and watch lesson 3- Measure length (2)

More linked learning can be found at BBC Bitesize.

There are worksheets to print, if you would like to, or if you prefer- you can copy some of the questions into your home learning books.
