Year 1 Home Learning!

Hello Hedgehogs and Cheetahs!

This is your home learning base.

You will find a range of activities to have a go at. We hope that you get lots of time stretch your brain muscles by keeping active, playing games together and being imaginative with your toys. All of these things will help you learn new skills every day. Please feel free to take photos of the things you get up to. We would love to see them when you all come back!

Have fun and stay safe. From the Year 1 Team.

What has Mrs Searle been up to?

I have missed you all this week! I have been keeping busy though...

Each morning I have been working out with Joe Wicks (9am). It’s a great way to start the day!

I have been reading lots. There is a really good website http://stories.audiable.com/start-listen I looked at today where I discovered people read stories to me! I have been listening to ‘Timeless Tales of Beatrix Potter: Peter Rabbit and Friends’. It‘s great! 

The 30 day Lego challenge has been keeping me very busy. 


I tried hard to build a rollercoaster but I’m sure you could do better (I helped my son to make a pirate ship instead).



Over the past two days, I have been enjoying the sunshine. My children and I played football. The sunshine reflecting from my camera lens created a rainbow!


It was lovely to spot some signs of spring yesterday. I drew pictures and used some photos to create a spring collage. 


I would love to hear about what you have been up to. Don’t forget you can upload things to our Year 1 email address.


What has Mr Rose been up to?

Hello Year 1! I hope you are all looking after eachother and staying safe.

This week, I have taken my dog Ruby for a walk once a day. She loves having a splash in the water to cool down!

I also tried to bake a cake... I think I will keep trying before I show you what it looked like!

Mr Rose has also been busy planning some fun activties for you do while at home! Check back next week to have a look at them.



Our garden is very messy at the moment.

Today, I put on my gardening gloves and started digging to make some flower beds. I wonder how our bean plants are getting on at school?

It's still quite messy isn't it!

How have you been helping your grown ups at home?

2) Write about feeling wild! When did you feel like a wild thing? Would you go an adventure with a wild thing?

You can use some of the Year 1 Common Exception Words too! There is also a phonics sound mat to download on this page.

3) Have an action word rumpus. In the story, Max is given a crown and scepter and starts the Wild Rumpus.

All the other wild things have to copy his actions! How many action words can you think of?


4) Use shapes cut out of paper to make a wild thing face! How many of each shape will you need? What if you wanted to make two or three masks?

What is Phonics?

Here is a help sheet explaining what phonics is and how you can help your child learn to read at home. The children really enjoy spotting the sounds in words!

Keeping active

It is important to stay healthy and active. Fitness at home can be fun!

Number/Alpha Blocks

We know that not everything on YouTube is safe for children to watch. Places like BBC iPlayer have a range of shows to help children learn in a fun and safe way.

English - Spelling

 For a challenge, can you write a sentence that contains one or more of these words? If you really want a challenge, take a sneaky look at the Year 2 words!

Maths - Number

Have a go at these maths calculations. You could copy the sums out onto some paper to have a go at. Can you complete this blank number square?


If you have any questions or are unsure about anything, please get in touch.


Peregrine Nest Cam

We have been checking in with the nesting peregrine falcon in Nottingham. Here is the link if you want to have a look at home! The egg will hopefully hatch in a couple of weeks. Please note the warning on the website before you watch.
