Year One- Thursday 23rd April 2020

I hope you are all staying safe and well. It's very strange not seeing you all but I hope you're doing a little bit at home and enjoying having time with your families and the Easter Bunny managed to visit you.  

The weather is still glorious which is always good, so make sure you get outside in the garden and make the most of the fresh air. I can see from the work you have been sharing that you have been doing lots of lovely things outside. I am really enjoying seeing your work, it does make me smile.  

RWInc will continue to have live lessons via YouTube so they will help us keep our 'sounds on the boil' whilst we are at home.  These will take place daily and can be located via the following link: 

Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12.30 pm  

Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm  

Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm

They also have Poetry Time on Youtube at 2pm each day, they are also available afterwards.  


Today ware going to access the new resources on the BBCBitesize Home Learning website. We will focus on the reading activity today. It can be found via: 

A girl lying down with the title 'Daisy and the trouble with life' 

Listen to the extract of 'Daisy and the Trouble with Life', which is read by TV presenter Anita RaniWhilst it's playing try to make a list of the things Daisy did last week. You can pause the video at different points if needed. 

Bronze: Sequence events in a story 

Read this short extract from 'Daisy and the Trouble with Life' and then try the activity below. 

Starting with the one that happened first, put the events that Daisy talked about in order. 

To help you out, number one has been highlighted below. 

  • They tried to get Tiptoes to fall into a trap. 

  • Tiptoe stayed on the wall. 

  • Daisy dug a mud trap. 

  • They magicked Tiptoes into a lion. 

This can be done like a comic strip in your books using pictures and/ or sentences 

Silver: Predicting what might happen next 

Read this other extract from 'Daisy and the Trouble with Life' then do the activity below it. 

Where do you think Daisy is actually going? 

Use the start of the sentences below and see if you can come up with some ideas of where she might be going. Remember, she is grounded. 

  • She might be _ _ _ _ _ _ 

  • She could be _ _ _ _ _ _ 

  • Maybe she is _ _ _ _ _ _ 

  • What if she is _ _ _ _ _ _ 

Gold: What do you think? 

Re-read the extract used in 'silver' above. Pay attention to the part where the writer describes Daisy's frown. 

Do you think it would have been Mum's fault and the front doors' fault if Daisy ended up with the worst frowning face? 

Talk about who's fault you think it was and explain why you think that. 

Can you make a frown? See if you can make the worst frown in the world. 

This can be done in your homelearning book or using J2easy (whichever is easiest for you). 



Today please find in the Year 1 Hwb Class folder a resource helping us look at making doubles 

This does not need to be printed out and stuck in your book, only if wish/ are able to 
To challenge yourself try and double objects from around the home or garden 

Bronze: double 1 digit numbers 

Silver: Double 2 digit numbers up to 20  

Gold: Double 2 digit numbers beyond 20. Can you double a 3 digit number?  


Health & Well Being:  

Today is our PE lesson so start with Joe Wicks (@thebodycoach)  at  on YouTube. A great way to start the day for all the family.  


 With the great work being done by our NHS workers I thought it would be timely to learn a little bit about some very famous people who have shaped our National Health Service. The new hospital in London is called The Nightingale Hospital. We are going to try and learn a little more about the person that it is named after.    

Carry out some research to find some information in readiness for our Big Write tomorrow.  A great resource is the Encyclopedia Britannica available via Hwb (which provides information at different reading levels as well as images). I have also uploaded to the Hwb Class Folder a Powerpoint to help. In addition to this I have included an optional timeline activity and lamp outline to make.  

Finish the day with some colouring, whether this be a picture to thank our wonderful NHS staff and key workers or one of the Florence Nightingale pictures that I have included in the Class folder. If your able to give them a cheer and clap later please do.... if you need to do it a little earlier, I appreciate that...I would love to see...we could create an appreciation film/ collage if you send them or pop them in your J2easy folder.  

Most importantly, take care, stay safe, take a deep breath and enjoy the fresh air! 

Stay safe
