Year 1 Home Learning

Monday 13th July - Friday 17th July

The final week of term is here! Before we go into the work for this week we would just like to say how unbelievably proud of all of you we are (parents; you too!!) We know that these last few months haven't been easy, so we wanted to thank you for your support; from the minute your children came to us from reception to now; although this year hasn't been what it was meant to; you have adapted to all situations thrown your way!

When your children return in September we will still be there for them to support and help the transition! But we think they are going to absolutely smash being in Year 2!! We cannot wait to continue to watch their journeys at Oakfield.


This week we are going to be focusing on starting that transition from Year 1 to Year 2; if your child is in school we will keep these and hand them to their next class teacher. If you are working at home, keep these pages safe and bring them in when we come back; or email them to us and we can pass them onto your new class teachers!

 Complete the pages below in any order you would like! Make is as fun and creative as you wish!

We hope you have a lovely week!!

Year 1 Home Learning

Monday 6th July - Friday 10th July

This week in Literacy, we are moving onto a new story called 'Superworm!' This is one of our favourite stories so we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! We will be completing a story map and then creating a wanted poster for the dastardly Wizard Lizard!!


In maths, we are moving onto a little bit of symmetry and recapping measure in particular ML - using the terms more, less, full and empty. 

In Mini mission we are doing a bit of art (with what we have learnt about symmetry) and also a practical lesson which should be fun and allow you to get creative! 

Not many paper based resources this week; but you may need to raid your cupboards for some equipment! We hope you have a brilliant week; remember to continue to email us!

Year 1 Home learning

Monday 15th - Friday 19th June 2020

As some Year 1 children are returning to school this week; we have decided to make sure that the learning that is taking place in school is mirrored as much as possible in the home learning tasks set. Therefore, there will now be a 'learning task' grid set for Literacy, Maths and mini mission.

Our NEW mini mission is Mini Beasts! Our Literacy learning will all be based around the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and our Maths will be number based for the first few weeks; with links to mini beasts too!

The learning grids will make reference to the worksheet/ task you need to complete. Please remember, you can adapt or change the tasks we set; we have put the learning objective (L.O) just so that you are aware of what we want the children to have learnt by the end of that task. 

We realise that everyone's circumstances and situation is different during this pandemic, therefore, the work set is planned to try and be as flexible as possible, please don't feel that you have to complete every task set; go with whatever interests your child!

We hope you have a great week at home and enjoy our new Mini Mission; remember any questions or if you just want to share the amazing things you get up to (we LOVE receiving these!); email us on our email address at the top of the page!

 A humungous hello to you all!

Updated 03.04.2020

We would like to say a enormous THANK YOU to all of you for your support, messages and understanding during this very difficult time. We miss your children's smiles, laughs, personalities so, so much and we think of them every single day. Whether you have been doing the home learning packs, whether you have been cooking, playing, sharing stories, giving extra cuddles, doing arts and crafts, smiling, laughing... we thank you for everything you are doing for your children to help them feel safe and loved in a world which we have never experienced before. As we are sure you are aware today would have been the last day before Easter Holidays; so we have a few jobs we'd like you to complete over the 2 week break.

1 - have fun

2 - stay safe

3 - be silly

4 - check in on those you care about; email, text, write a letter, Facebook

5 - hug, smile, laugh more than you ever normally would; in a world where everything is different home can be the safe, happy and constant place which is filled with lovely memories 

6 - most importantly, stuff your faces full of delicious chocolate!!!

We miss your children SO SO much, from the bottom of our hearts we cannot wait to see and speak to you all again!! We will be back in touch properly after the Easter holidays; but if we spot any awesome activities we will post them on here for you all to see.

Stay safe and look out for each other,

Lots of love

Miss Wright and Mrs Williams 




Welcome to Year One home learning page.

Through this page we hope to keep you updated with relevant links to websites/ games/ online resources to support you in helping your children while at home. We will also try and model maths, phonics and writing to help as much as we can via the website. 

Remember; learning can take place in many forms - playing games, role play, singing, dancing, play doh, painting, sharing a story with your child, going on a shape hunt around the home, baking, go for walks so long as you're not in isolation (being cautious of social distancing) and many more opportunities - feel free to take photos to show us when we return; and don't feel restricted by the work that we have sent home.

Most importantly we hope that all of you and your children are well and safe and that they enjoy their time learning with you at home; we will miss you all SO SO much while you are not in school and cannot wait to see you all again!

Below is some helpful information about what year one 'looks like' and some useful website/ video links to support their learning. We will endeavour to update this page daily with helpful tips or new links as we find them! 

As always - we thank you for your continued support! 

 Free Twinkl Resources


Twinkl have kindly provided access to their resources for teachers and parents around the world during the current circumstances. There are thousands of helpful resources which you can access and download completely free, such as;

Phonics sheets, learning games, Worksheets for math, literacy, spelling  common exception words etc. You can create your own login by using your personal e-mail address and the offer code UKTWINKLHELPS, visit www.twinkl.co.uk/offer to sign up.

Physical Education

Joe Wicks is doing daily PE sessions at 9am via youtube - these look great for all the family to join in with and a fab energetic way to begin the day! Mrs Williams will definitely be joining in with her two little monsters at home!!


Follow the link to his website where at the bottom there is a link to his youtube page - you may need to subscribe to access the videos.


At school we follow the Read, Write, Inc scheme of learning from Ruth Miskin - RWI are doing daily phonics lessons Via youtube and facebook

RWI Phonics lessons at home from Monday 23rd March on Facebook and YouTube:
Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12.30 pm
Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm
Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm
Note: films won’t be available at other times


Phonics play is also another great online resource for your children to learn and recap their phonics knowledge. They are offering a free login at the moment during the school closures.



Let your children explore with their writing - we'd love to have some of the tasks completed about 'Peculiar Pets' but if your child would like to keep a diary of what they do each day while they are off school then that is great too! They might want to write their own story linked to The Great Fire of London... let their imaginations run wild!! The most important thing is that they do SOME writing in some form.

Key things they should/ could include in their writing:

  • Capital letters at the starts of sentences and for Proper nouns (Names)
  • Full stops at the end of sentences.
  • Adjectives to describe: 
    • red ball 
    • delicious, hot dinner 
  • Spell some words phonetically; but using the correct 'special friends' for some well known words (See the phonics (RWI) sheet in your pack that was sent home: 
    • Wons upon a tighm thair was a cheetu hoo mayd a cayk.
    • (Once upon a time there was a cheeter who made a cake.)
    • Some children will know which is the correct 'special friends' to use in a word - other children may not - this is absolutely fine!
  • Some children may be able to extend their sentences using 'and', 'but', 'because'
    • The Great Fire of London spread quickly because the wind was really strong on September 2nd 1666.
    • Some animals have 4 legs but others only have 2 legs.

For reading - use the oxford owl login that was in your packs; share stories with your children, lots of people are doing a 'share a story; via youtube - your children could write a story and share it with you or siblings. For us as teachers; children knowing their 'special friends' and all the phonics sounds is what is key for year 1. If you want to challenge your children - read a story and then ask some questions about what they have read:

retrieval - where they can FIND the answer in the book; Who dropped the eggs? Who said _______?

inference - where they have to THINK and use their initiative to answer; How do you think ____ is feeling? How do you know? What tells us that....


We have sent home a maths booklet - feel free to work your way through this - but maths can be done really practically at home too. If would be good if children could be introduced to the terms 'tens' and 'ones' understanding that for numbers more than 10, there are tens and ones which make us a 2 digit numbers.

  • Lets take the number 26
    • There are 2 tens (20) - reinforce counting in tens.
    • There are 6 ones.
    • So 20 and 6 make 26.

Topmarks website is a key source of games which can be linked to any level of ability.

The weather is beautiful today! If you can get outside for a bit of exercise please do; go on a shape hunt, how many leaves can you count on a plant? How many laps of your garden can you do in a minute? Whatever you do; stay safe.

Wednesday 25th March

Another day where lovely sunny weather is predicted! But wrap up warm as it is still a bit chilly...

How about having a go at creating some artwork using natural material. You could create pictures of people, animals, flowers trees or even write messages! When you go for a walk, take a bag with you and collect sticks, leaves, seeds etc (But please don't break branches or leaves off any plants or trees - they need them!)

If you have a front garden you could create art for people to look at and enjoy as they walk past - No garden? No problem - create your artwork on a piece of paper or an opened out cardboard box. We can wait to see what you create!

Image result for garden art for kidsImage result for thigns made with leaves and brances by kids

If you fancy staying indoors why not experiment with some lego stamping art - you could create pictures of things you love or have a go at making repeating patterns using shape and colour!

Friday 27th March

Week 2 - Beginning 30/3/2020

Ease yourselves into a new week (it's hard for our children too, not just us); why not do something creative? Please don't feel pressured to 'force' your child to complete all the work we sent home, use this time to teach your child life skills instead; cooking, building a den, crafts... below are some suggestions which might help you decide... remember talking with your child, being there for them can be just as educational as 'school work' 


Image may contain: ‎possible text that says '‎σעൾ DAY ৪ Make A Den കൽ Building dens are very important for children and will help with their learning, creative thinking, sustained and shared thinking. It will also help them understand plan, evaluate and investigate. Also, just plain old fashioned fun! What do:Grab chairs, pillows, old or what about a clothes horse? Anything goes! If are adventurous head outside and grab some big sticks and make a tee- pee tent with an old sheet or big leaves. www.jigsawearlyarsonsultacy.com‎'‎No photo description available.
