Year 1 – Thursday’s Home Learning

Year 1 Home learning for Thursday 21st May

Subject focus What we need to learn: How we might learn it:
English  Reading Read common exception words, noting unusual correspondences between spelling and sound and where these occur in the word.

You will need: Your favourite book, a piece of paper and a pencil. 

Read your favourite book, as you read notice any common exception words and write them on the piece of paper that you have. If you notice a word more than once give it a tick. 

(If you have a printer you might like to print the list and tick the word when you see it). 

Once you have finished your book take a look at your list. Are there any words you didn’t find? Which word was the most common? 


Beginning to punctuate sentences using a capital letter and a full stop.

Begin to form lower-case letters in the correct direction, starting and finishing in the right place.

Using your sentences from yesterday and your research from Tuesday try to create either an information book/sheet, leaflet or poster about your chosen transport.

Remember to have a title, maybe some headings, your factual sentences from yesterday and images, diagrams and labels.

Try to group similar information together and link ideas together using ‘and’.

Also remember to use your best handwriting, so it can be read clearly by others.

E.g.                                  All About Cars

When was the first car invented?         How do cars work?

Maths Solve mathematical problems or puzzles involving addition or multiplication using concrete objects and pictorial representations.

Today is about your child applying their knowledge of addition and/or multiplication.

Begin by playing the dice games at the bottom of the document which can be printed or used for reference.  It is okay to focus on addition or repeated addition if your child is not yet ready for multiplication.

If you would like to challenge them a little more, there are some examples of worded problems which require more thought.  Remember that you can change the numbers in the problem to suit your child’s ability.

Then see if you can find the 5 oceans:Atlantic, Pacific, Arctic, Indian and Southern. (Internet keeping SAFE)

Choose anywhere on the map and talk about which countries/oceans you would cross if you wanted to get there by car, plane or ship. 

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.
