Let’s start our day with a prayer.

I want to love You always,

In all I do and say.

I'll try to please You Father.

Bless me through the day.

  • Daily handwriting and phonics/reading
  • Grammar: Contractions
  • English: My Weekend News
  • Maths: Time
  • RE: New topic on Neighbours





Daily handwriting and phonics/reading: Please aim for 30 minutes (15 each) of handwriting and phonics and continue reading each day. smiley

Don't forget to check out your new spellings for this week if you haven't already. Can you use these words in a sentence?






Grammar: This week we are learning about contractions.


  • Contractions are a shorter way of saying two words. 
  • We take some letters out and replace them with an apostrophe. '

Take a look at your spelling words below. Can you spot what letters get replaced with an apostrophe?



For today's task practise writing your spelling words in your handwriting book. Remember to use your handwriting rules - sit up nice and straight, use the tripod grip to hold your pencil and form your letters correctly.


As an extra challenge you can try to use some words in sentences.


How To Use Contractions in English





English: Today we are going to write a recount of our weekends. What did you do? Who were you with? Did you go anywhere? Did you play outside? What was your favourite part? 


Now that you are all superstar writers try to add lots of detail. Can you use some of the things we have learned in Year 1?






Maths: Today we are going to continue learning about time. First, review what we learned last week.


  • Can you read time to the hour and half past on a clock?
  • Which hand is the minute and which hand is the hour?
  • Where is the minute hand when we talk about o'clock?
  • Where is the minute hand when we talk about half past?


Review these new words:

time, clock, hands, minute, hour, o'clock, half past


Review clockwise and anti-clockwise. Can you remember which way clockwise goes? This is the way the clock always turns.

For today's task can you join the analogue clocks to the digital clocks?


Check out Mathletics for more tasks about time.

RE: Today we are starting our last RE topic in Year 1 - Neighbours. We don't know all of our neighbours. For example nurses, police and teachers are our neighbours and they care about us and help us. We have neighbours all around the world. We can love, help or care for our neighbours.


"You shall love your neighbour as yourself."
Mark 12:31



  • What are neighbours? Are they just people who we know or live near?
  • How do we love our neighbours? What does this love mean?

Today we are going to show how we can lend a helping hand. What can you do to help your neighbours? E.g., I can be a good neighbour by being honest and kind to others. I can be a good neighbour by supporting my family and friends and always telling the truth. I can be a good neighbour by helping my brother when he is hurt.


You can use paint to do your handprint or trace your hand and colour.
