Hi everyone,


Well done all of those that logged in and written some brilliant code.  Excellent work.


If you want to log in over half term and do some more then that would be brilliant.  Just carry on from where you got up to.

Update from Mr Harris 


Hi Everyone, well done to those that logged in and encouraged their child to do the coding task from last week.  


This week I would like everyone to log in and either start or continue to work through the stages.  If you can work through to the end of Lesson 4 which is about helping BB-8 from star wars collect rubbish.


This will work on almost any device - tablet, ipad, pc, laptop or mobile smartphone, so please encourage your child to have a go - it's fun and will reinforce the coding we have done in class.


Log in at:


Drop me a line if your child can't remember their sign in character.


Rewards are available for children that progress.  Happy coding!

Good morning year 1

Today’s activities are:

English: Today the focus is on verbs. Verbs are action words, such as, walking, talking, jumping. Write a list of as many as you can and put these into sentences.

Remember the rainbow grammar colours and underline in the correct colours if you have them. Additionally, underline the verb in your sentence. It is usually the first word on the orange card.

Mrs Gee walks to school. Walks is the verb. Record your sentences in your homework book or the exercise book which was sent home.

Challenge: can you include nouns, adjectives and verbs into your sentences?


Maths: continue practising times tables daily as this will support a secure understating.

Write some comparative statement calculations using < less than, > greater than and = equal to (same as) using addition and subtraction calculations, within 20.

For example,

12 + 4 = 20 – 4

19 – 4 < 19 + 0


Letters and sounds: with the o-e split digraph sound from yesterday, use the words you found to write them into sentences.

For example, I am sat at home.

Challenge: can you make them more complex by using the conjunction ‘and’ or ‘but’ to join 2 simple sentences. For example, I am sat at home but I would like to play outside.


Science: recap on the different body parts that we learnt about- can you tell your parents the name of them all? This week, we need to think about our senses and which of body parts we use for which sense. Write the body parts down and which sense they help with. Record what you can for each sense.

For example, A nose helps us to smell. I can smell….

Write what you can smell in your environment and continue for each sense.


Topic (geography): we looked at compass points north, south, east and west. See if you can use these words to give your adults/siblings directions to different areas in your house or garden.


Word of the week: is Mercy.

The definition of mercy is compassionate treatment, having a capacity to forgive or showing kindness. I think this is very important during the period of Lent, where we all try to show extra kindness and support others when possible. For example, helping out our grandparents more.

How do you think we can show mercy to others?

Can you write a prayer about mercy?


PHONICS PLAY- on their website it is now free! Excellent for all year 1 children! The username is: march20 and password is: home    this has all the different phonemes children have been learning- choose phase 5 and children can complete the games and activities. 


Have a lovely day and I will update tomorrow.

Mrs Gee :) 





Wednesday 18th March 2020 


Good morning year 1, I hope you are all well.


Activities for today:

English- recap on what a noun is (the name of a person, a place, or a thing) and create a list of these. Then recap what an adjective is (a word to describe a noun) and create a list of these. Use both lists of words to write sentences. How exciting can you make your sentences? Challenge: Can you use the word 'and' to join 2 sentences together? Can you use more than one adjective in your sentence? If you have colour crayons you could underline your sentences in rainbow grammar colours. Remember, green for the subject of the sentence (so who/what the sentence is about) and orange for the predicate (what is happening/or person is doing) and red to stop the sentence (full stop). 

For example. Mrs Gee is writing on the computer

Maths: practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. You can then start to practise reciting the times tables for 2s, 5s, and 10s. There are lots of videos on youtube which are great for helping with this. If you have paper and  pencil, you can practise writing these down as it may support your memory of these. 

You can also practise number formation 1-50. Challenge: Next week we are starting place value to 50 so it would be beneficial to correctly form the numbers. *recap on tens and ones to help you.

For example. 46 this number has 4 tens and 6 ones. 


Letters and sounds: the next sound is the split digraph o-e. Can you think of some words with this sound? Have a look in your reading books to help you. For example, home this has the o-e split digraph because it has a letter sat in between and is the long vowel sound 'o'. 


Topic: Our current topic is Paws, Claws and Whiskers. Please can you think about one of your favourite animals, draw it and write facts about it. You may use the internet to support you, if you have access. 


RE: Last week we started our new topic 'Changes'. Please can you think about how you have changed over time and write some sentences about this. 


I will update on here daily with activities to complete at home to support learning whilst away from school. 

Best wishes, Mrs Gee :)
