Year 1 Squirrels

Welcome to Year 1!

Hello Squirrel class,

I hope you are looking after yourselves and keeping safe.

I have uploaded below a suggested timetable for you to follow to maintain a routine at home. The timings are just a suggestion so feel free to do the activities when they suit you and your family. 

In the morning we have put up a link for the Body Coach, he streams a live work out on youtube at 9 am every morning.

Ruth Miskin has provided a RWI speed sound lesson for set 1, 2 and 3 sounds daily. Please watch the youtube link which will guide you through the sound lesson. If you need support on any RWI sessions please refer the parent FAQs on the class page under phonics.

Remember you can go through the powerpoints under the phonics section of the class page to practice reading nonsense words. Use your yellow sound book to practice any sounds that were sent home.

On the class page we have put 5 maths and English activities for you to complete at home, please look at the timetable to see suggested times for when to do these activities.

Throughout the day on the timetable there are virtual activities to take part in such as dance and science.

Please make sure you are reading with your child every day, you can use the virtual bookcase and Oxford Owl on the class page to access a wide variety of books. Use the log in details provided to access this.

We have uploaded a range of Maths, English and Phonics learning games that you can play at home.

In the timetable we have factored in time for handwriting and spelling, please look at the class page for the common exception words.

Under the topic learning icon there is a variety of art, science and history activities for the children to complete throughout the week in the afternoon.

Remember to have time to do some fun activities at home with your parents. We will upload some activities that you can do with your family at home.  

You do not need to print off any of these activities at home please use your home learning books or other paper to complete your learning.


We hope you enjoy completing your home learning!

Take care,

Mrs McNeill and Mrs Rashid
