We in the Year 1 team would like to wish you a very Happy Easter break and hope that you enjoy this time together! All of our lovely children please find time at the weekend to eat a chocolate Easter egg (or three!!) and we can't wait to welcome you back to our daily home learning after the break! Our Class pages (accessed from the home pages through the doors) still have activities to work on if you so wish, such as the PICK 'N' MIX homework and the home learning packs loaded on before the school closures so feel free to have a look at these if you wish. The scavenger hunt sheet and mindfulness colouring sheets from last week are still available below also. 

You have amazed us with how resilient and positive you are and hope we all remain in these high spirits going forward! With all our best wishes for a great, albeit strange, Easter,

Mrs Stribling, Mr Harris and Mrs Cahill xx

Friday Reading Challenge

Reading For Pleasure

Some ideas of websites which can be used to find new and interesting things to read: 








Don't forget to check out your favourite author's websites too. Below is an example to get you started.

Oliver Jeffers

As you know, we have recently been reading books by the wonderful Oliver Jeffers as part of our author focus in the Spring terms. He has kindly posted videos of himself reading his stories, which can be accessed by clicking here. He has written stories for a range of ages so please have a look at them before you share with your little ones. His website also has lots of activities that link to his stories which you can access here.

Key Word Lists

Below, we have uploaded a copy of all the key word lists used in school as part of our daily reading routine as we are aware your children will be requiring further word strips by now. The first document is the word sets 1-28 and the following document is the Phase 3 and Phase 5 phonics word strips. Please feel free to access these and use with your children as and when you can. We hope this helps!

Tuesday's mindfulness colouring sheet is below- print off and relax listening to your favourite music whilst you colour in!

Or have a go at Joe Wick's PE session of the day at 9am on YouTube. 

On Thursday, why not try colouring another positive colouring sheet whilst you relax at home. See below...

On Friday, why not try reading the story, Elmer and Rose following the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxWaLeLit8w

In class we read the classic Elmer story and children discussed differences and how it is a positive thing to be unique. After enjoying this story together, discuss this idea again with your child and see how much they remember about our earlier discussion after reading Elmer. 


Each week we will be posting a piece of music from our Year 1 curriculum to listen to. The theme this term is 'Round and Round.' The track this week is 'Oye Como Va' by Santana. You can listen to the music in the video below. 


Once you've listened to the music, have a go at the questions/challenges on the sheet below:

Have you ever heard of the word ‘bored’ before? What do you think it means?

Think of times when you have felt bored. When was it? Why were you bored? Did you do anything about it?

Look at the being bored resource which shows how some children have stopped themselves from feeling bored.

Being Bored resource

How will you stop yourself from feeling bored while you have to stay at home? 

Think about some of the things you enjoy doing or some of the hobbies and clubs you are or were part of. How could you adapt them so that you can still do them at home? 

One of the children mentioned learning something new stops her from being bored. Can you think of anything you might like to learn to do e.g. gardening, cooking, knitting, speak a foreign language?

Make a list of your ideas so you can come back to them if you are feeling bored!

Do you think that sometimes it is important to feel bored? Can it help you to appreciate things or make you be inventive in finding ways to stop this feeling?

Do you control if you become bored?

There will be times when we feel like we don’t have much to do and we’ve run out of ideas. These are the times we can use our creativity and imagination to make sure we don’t become bored.
