Let's start the day with a prayer.

Phonics and handwriting


Please aim for 30 minutes (15 each) of handwriting and phonics per day.



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.



Listen and enjoy the story Dear Greenpeace. What else might Emily have seen in her pond if it was not a whale? 


Draw and label pictures of things she might have seen using adjectives – a giant frog, a massive fish, a funny monster... even a shape-shifting alien!


Write a letter to a relative or friend telling them what you think was in Emily’s pond. Make sure you include a good description of your creature using adjectives.


This is an example of how to write a letter.

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

Maths- Task 1- Digital and analogue

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


Check out Mathletics for more tasks about time.

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.


  • 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.
