Hello from Mrs Birch- Monday 18th January

Don’t forget to take a look at some examples of your work we’ve put on our Year 1 class webpage.

Find out more about our Cultural Diversity Week and view the contributions so far, by clicking on the link below.


This week we are going to be writing persuasive letters. That sounds tricky but don't worry the tasks we have planned for you are quite simple, you just need to make sure you stay focused! Some of these activities will be linked to the story Dogger so I hope you can remember it well. On Friday I have set you a comprehension task on reading eggs.


This week we are continuing with our work on the conjunction and to join words and clauses. We would like you to take a look at the Powerpoint which has been uploaded and complete one of the worksheets attached. You can choose your level of challenge.

* = easiest

** = middle

*** = hardest


This week, we are going to be learning about Place Value within 20.  For each day there is a worksheet which has 3 different levels - Easy (Page 2), Medium (Page 3) and Hard (Page 4).  Please use the sheet which you feel best suits your child. In the Challenge box, there is an additional sheet for each day which is more about problems solving and explaining your thinking.  Feel free to use this if and when you like!


This week, we are going to continue looking at materials.  This week we are going to be looking at the words we can use to describe different objects.  It will be useful to have a bag containing different materials (or objects made from these materials) when you carry out the activities.  

The stars at the top of the sheet show the level (1 star - easy, 2 stars - medium, 3 stars - hard)



Last week we looked at the creation story. This week we are going to think about what God did on the 7th day... he rested. It is important that we rest after we have worked hard. We want you to tell us how you like to spend your 'rest days'. What do you like to do when you get time off from school work or helping your parents?



Last week in Topic we learnt all about Florence Nightingale. This week we are going to learn about inventions from the Victorian era. Go through the PowerPoint to learn all about some of the inventions. You can also click on the links to find out about other inventions. For the activity, sort the pictures into inventions from the Victorian era, and modern inventions. If you do not have a printer, you could draw a table and write the name of the invention on the correct side.



Mrs Gordon thought it would be lovely if you could practise a song while you were at home with your family. You could even teach it to the rest of them - some of you are amazing at dancing too and you could make up a routine to go with it.  Our song is in the link below. 


I know how much some of you like singing and dancing so you could always record yourself singing and dancing to your favourite song and send it to us - we'd really like to see them!


Who can help?



We would like you to start the first coding unit at home. It is lots of fun and you can get more and more creative as you work your way through the lessons at home. Don't worry though it starts off very simple!


We are starting with Level 1- On the Move


The 'On the Move' unit helps you to learn that programs execute by following clear instructions and it helps you to understand that programs respond to inputs to do different things.


The link above will take you to the Discovery Education Webpage and you will need to login:

We are continuing to look at the work of L.S. Lowry.  

Over the next few weeks, we are going to create a collage in the style of Lowry, adding a new part each week.  This week we are going to create the background.  



It's important to try and stay fit and healthy, especially when the weather isn't very nice and we can't go outside!
