Year 1 - Home Learning

W.C 18th January 2021


Our IPC topic is 'treasure island' and we have been using the theme of pirates to support our learning. We have been reading the book 'The Troll' by Julia Donaldson. This week I've seen great home learning Year 1! Well done!

Here is the attached 'Weekly Menu', as well as attachments to support your child's learning. E.g. a 'reading sheet' that will be given each week practising previous week's sounds in the form of green words, nonsense words and red words. Please do encourage your child to practise these and spot the special friends and then Fred talk.

Weekly Menu:           Suggested Timetable:                    Reading Sheet and other attachments:

Purple Mash

Here is a short video going through briefly how to use Purple Mash on there to - please watch if you need help.  If you need any help with this or need your child's login details please do email and I can help.


The children have been developing their writing and are becoming more confident using their Fred fingers and phonics knowledge. However, sometimes, they struggle to read their own work so if they do any writing at home it would be great if you could encourage them to read this aloud too. E.g. practise reading their sentence back to check it makes sense as well as developing their confidence too. These are essential skills that should encouraged whenever they write anything as this will help their writing to positively develop.

If you have any questions or unsure about anything please do not hesitate to email.

Thank you!
