Welcome to the Year 1 Home Learning Page.

Returning to School

If your child is returning to the Year 1 provision on Monday and Tuesday, they will be given ‘homework’ to complete on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please remember to order lunch for your child for the days they are with us. Children can wear either their summer or winter uniform.

If your child is returning to the Year 1 provision on Thursday and Friday, they can access the home learning for Monday 15, Tuesday 16, and Wednesday 17 June. Once they have attended school on Thursday and Friday, they can then complete their ‘homework’ on the following Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Please remember to order lunch for your child for the days they are with us. Children can wear either their summer or winter uniform.

Turner Groups should arrive between 8:45am and 8:55am and be collected between 2:55pm and 3:05pm.
Stubbs Groups should arrive between 8:55am and 9:05am and be collected between 3:05pm and 3:15pm.
Due to other classes arriving and departing our school at different times we do urge parents to be on time.

If your child is remaining at home, we will continue to add home learning to this page.
If your child is in our Key Worker provision they will do their home learning and additional activities during their time in school.

Home Learning

Please do as much of these activities as you would like to and share your learning with us at [email protected]. There are lots of helpful resources and ideas on this page and we have left activities from previous weeks, which you may find helpful.

When your child is online, make sure that they are supervised at all times and you can see what is on their screen. For extra security, apart from the parental settings, you can download YouTubeKids on any tablets and Ipads to give children a more contained and safe environment.

Daily Lessons

Science

Don’t forget that you also have the topic about the country of Madagascar to complete.

In celebration of International Francophonie (French Speaking) Day on March 20th we are inviting all children to participate in a research based, cross curricular learning project about a French Speaking Nation. These projects should be brought back to school upon our return so that we can congratulate the children on their home learning and share them with the wider school community. Here are some suggestions of the things you could include in your project:

Title Page – completed by the children in school

Contents Page – this may be easier to complete at the end once all other pages have been completed and ordered, or created and added to as the project is developed.

Map of my Country – Drawn and labelled with a key – or printed and labelled

National Flag – Drawn and coloured with an explanation of what it represents or what the meaning is behind the colours and symbols on it.

Climate and Weather – Forecasts and charts could be included as well as a comparison with the UK or France. Extreme weather incidents could also be included.

Geographical Features – Mountains, Rivers, Lakes, Volcanoes, Cities etc…

Native Plants and Animals – Draw the animal/plant and label physical features. Describe characteristics, habitats, and food. Why are they native to this particular country?

Currency – Draw coins/notes. Compare to English/French currency. Explore a shopping list and the cost of items. Has currency changed over the years?

National symbols – Draw any national emblems or symbols often associated to the country eg… England is often represented by a rose or three lions. Explain these symbols/emblems.

National costume – Draw a man, woman and child in national costume. Use materials to make a collage of fabrics and patterns used in traditional clothes.

National food and recipes – Write a traditional recipe. Have a go at making it and take photos. Compare to traditional British or French cuisine.

Cultural Music – Research famous musicians from the country. Which instruments are traditionally played? What genre of music is most popular?

Cultural Traditions – Traditional stories, festivals and celebrations, unique daily routines

Landmarks – Draw/stick in pictures of buildings and tourist attractions, including stadiums. Describe their features and their uses.

Historical figures – Kings, Queens or National Leaders and National heroes. Draw portraits and write a short biography or fact file.

Sports Teams – Draw team badges/kits, describe achievements/trophies won, list key sportsmen/women. Write a match report of a game or instructions about how to play the sport.

Artists – Look at famous painters, illustrators, print makers, sculptors and designers. Write a biography of the artist. Have a go at recreating a famous piece of artwork or create your own art inspired by national artists. Compare them to other artists you have studied in school.

Authors – Write a book review or biography about the author.

Statistics – Make a list of facts and figures about the country eg… population, language spoken, capital city, distance from the UK, average temperature, continent, bordering countries etc…

Glossary – Children could highlight any ‘tricky’ or ‘topic’ vocabulary and write a definition in the glossary. Remember glossaries are in alphabetical order.
