Year 1 – Monday’s Home Learning

Year 1 Home learning for Monday 1st June

Subject focus What we need to learn: How we might learn it:
English  Reading Discuss word meanings, linking new meanings to those already known.

Read the story ‘Supermarket Zoo’ – by Caryl Hart (either below or on this Youtube link).

If you are reading this with an adult discuss any words you don’t know the meaning of. Think about when we RAG rate words at school (RED: I don’t know what it means. ORANGE: I’ve heard it but not sure what it means. GREEN: I know what it means.)

If you are working on your own, write a list of the words you aren’t sure of. You might make a table…

You can then discuss the words you have written with an adult or older sibling later on. 

INTERNET SAFETY: Please remember you should have an adult with you when you go online – Keep SAFE online

Writing Read aloud their writing clearly enough to be heard by others.

Riddle – What am I? 

Having read the story, think about the different animals that can be found at a zoo.  Choose a zoo animal and write your own riddle.  Remember that a riddle gives a series of clues to help you guess the animal.  You may want to draw a picture of your chosen animal and create a ‘flap’ to reveal the answer. 

Once you have written your riddle, read the clues clearly to a member of your family and see if they can guess the animal.


Read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (-) and equals (=) signs

 Add and subtract one-digit and two-digit numbers to 20, including zero 

Read the animal maths problems that are shared below. You might need a grown up to help read them to you. 

Think carefully about if you need to do adding or subtraction to solve it. Do you need to use any equipment to solve it? 

Write out the number sentence using the correct symbols + – and = and solve it. 

Remember to check your answer and form your numbers correctly (always starting at the top)



Can I use basic geographical vocabulary to refer to:

– key physical features, including: beach, cliff, forest, mountain, sea, river.

Today you are going to find out about where animals live or originally come from. 

Using the words:

BEACH, CLIFF, FOREST, MOUNTAIN, SEA and RIVER try and find at least one animal that lives in those places. 

You could use google (make sure you have a grown up with you) or maybe you have some books about animals and where they live. 

Remember to email your child’s class teacher to let them know how you’ve got on. We’d love to see examples of what you’ve been up to.
