Wednesday 29th April 


Good morning Year One, 

We hope your home learning is going well. We have been very impressed by all the work we have seen from you so far. Thank you for working so hard.

Here is your work for today.  If you have any questions please do feel free to contact us, we are here to help.

We are both contactable through our usual email addresses.




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

Or, maybe join in with some super moves by watching the video below:

This video and movement song links with our PSHCE work on feeling good about yourself- believing in yourself and being proud. You might like to listen to it later in the day if you are going to watch the Mr Jones video story about 'When I feel good about myself.'

Wake Up! A warm up movement song and dance

A familiar and cheerful song to get you in the mood for your day of learning!



Today we would like you to write your own non-fiction page with information about firefighters.

Please include the following on your page:


Labelled picture


Information box- including a question and answer- remember where to use a question mark.

Select a word to write a definition for- explaining what the word means, like you would find in a glossary.

Challenge: Use subheadings for the different topics you write about.



Continue to learn your spellings for this week- they focus on the sounds: ire- Fire, fire! and ear – Hear with your ear.

They are:  fire, spire, wire, hear, fear, spear / school, house

Please carry out the quiz at home on Friday and let us know how you got on. Thank you.


The phonic focus this week are also: ire- Fire, fire! and ear – Hear with your ear.

We will also revise: a-emake a cake and i-enice smile.

There is an additional phonics sheet but you can read the words on screen if you prefer not to print it off.


Here is the link to watch the Ruth Miskin phonics video for today- it will recap on the sounds we have been looking at this year.



In your handwriting books please work on the following letter formation- the zig zag letters:

v, w, x, z

Please refer to the handwriting sheet in your pack for the correct formation.

Can you think of any short words that use these letters- it will give you a chance to show you can write all the vowels correctly, too.

For example:

vet, van, wet, wax, box, fox, zoo, zig, zag...

Also, work on any particular letters you know need a little extra time spent on them. Thank you


Please read for at least 10 minutes. You can select an online book from one of the websites below.



In maths we will be completing work on finding a quarter of amounts.
