Spring 2

Monday 28th March Home Learning



Read a book on bug club and answer the questions.


Choose two fairy tales that you know well and compare them. What is similar about each story? What is different?



Draw a picture of something in your house or outside (e.g. a favourite toy, flowers). Write some sentences about what you have drawn. Remember your finger spaces, capital letters and full stops. Use your phonics to help you with your spellings.



Practise counting backwards from 20, 30 and 50. 


Practise writing numbers up to 50.


Solve these subtraction number sentences. Use resources, drawing or solve them mentally.

9 - 3 =       10 - 6 =       8 - 4 =     15 - 4 =     17 - 3 =     20 - 5 =



Create your own work out. This might include dancing, stretches or exercise moves. Write it down before testing it out.

Friday 18th March Home Learning



Explain to your parents what 'prosody' means. Read a double page spread of your Little Wandle reading book with prosody. Who in your family can read the page using the 'best' prosody? Have a go and see. 


Is your book fiction or non-fiction? How can you tell? Discuss with the people at home. 


FICTION: If there are capital letters, bold words ? or ! , use your voice to show you know what these are for. If there are speech marks, remember to change your voice into the voice of the character.

NON-FICTION: Say two new facts you have learnt. Answer questions at the back of the book in the Comprehension section - Can you find the answer in the book? 'Don't just guess, check in the text.' 



English - Writing 

Write a diary entry in role as Rapunzel locked in the tower. Tell your diary what is happening to you. Express your feelings and ask questions i.e. What am I doing here? Why has this witch locked me in the tower? This will be a practise for the writing you will do in class on Monday. 




1. Write out your numbers from 0 - 50 and then practise counting backwards from 50.

2. Get your grown up to quiz you! Grown ups say any number between 0 - 100 and get your child to write it down.


3. These numbers are all in the wrong order! Can you order them from smallest to largest?


17, 19, 12, 15


25, 23, 24, 22


31, 20, 49, 13


45, 58, 33, 61


4. Have a go at solving the maths problems below (click on the sheet). 



PSHE - Keeping Safe Online 

We have been learning about the internet and what we use it for.

Create a poster to show all that you have learnt about the internet. 

Questions to think about:

- What is it used for the most? (e.g. learning, talking to people, games, videos)

- How can we, and others, keep safe when using the internet? (e.g. ask your grown ups if something comes up which you are unsure of, don't share your personal information to people you do not know).




Think about what you have learnt about materials so far. Can you name some materials that you know? Can you spot them around your home?

How do you think the materials you have found were made? Are they naturally found materials or man-made? 



Can all materials float? Make a prediction and explain why you think this e.g. I think plastic will float because... I think wood will float because...  I don't think metal will float because...

Test it out with some materials found around your home. Make sure that your grown up is happy for the objects to get wet first!

Spellings: Year 1 Tricky Words


It is best to practise these spellings a few a day, not all at once.


Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check

          1. Look at the word. Say it and spell it out using the alphabet letter names (not sounds)

have    h    a     v    e        have    h    a    v    e         have    h    a   v   e


2. Cover it up. Write it down. 


3. Check it by ticking off each letter you got right.


4. If you didn’t spell it right, correct it. What do you need to remember next time?






















Can you spell the word correctly in a sentence?

Remember a capital letter and full stop or question mark.

Sycamore Class P.E. days stay the same; Mondays and Wednesdays.

Maple Class P.E. days are Tuesdays (change from Monday) and Wednesdays. 


Please attend school in P.E. kit with all jewellery removed or stud earrings covered with micropore tape.
