Tuesday 21st April

Good morning Year 1. Today is Tuesday the 21st of April. How are you all doing today? I hope that your first day of home learning yesterday went well and you were able to complete some of your tasks. I was so happy to get photos from some of you of the great work you're doing at home. Remember you can write to me and send photos to I hope to hear from you. smiley

Practise reading our daily calendar with someone in your family. 

Example: The day is Tuesday. The date is the 21st. The month is April. The season is spring and the weather is sunny. 


Ms Hume has been so kind to upload a music video so you can practise your music at home. Check out her class page - it looks like this. She will be posting a new video each morning so be sure to have a look.

Did you know that today is the Queen’s birthday? She is now 94 years old. Make sure to sing a big happy birthday to the Queen, and don't forget to do 94 HIP HIP HORRAYS!  That might take you all day!

Daily handwriting and phonics

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



ENGLISH - This task is all about excellent listening. It’s very good for children to LISTEN to a story and follow it without pictures. This really improves their listening skills. As you're listening to the story try to remember all of the different animals that Chicken Licken meets. You can pause the story and write down who he meets along the way. Today's activity focuses on good listening, ordering events, writing golden sentences and using the conjunction 'and.'

MATHS - Money is a new concept for children that we teach in summer term. Children may need a little extra support with this activity. There are two differentiated activities - mild and hot. Please choose the one that is best suitable.

If you have some coins or notes at home these would be great to show children to introduce the values of money. I have attached a poster to show children the different coin and note values in the British currency.
