If you have some Phase 2, Phase 3 or Phase 5 sounds to learn (as shown on the sound mat pictures below), please continue learning these. 

‘Phonics play’ have updated their website

Sound mats

If you know all of your Phase 2, 3 and 5 sounds it is now time to keep applying the knowledge by reading texts with these sounds in. Please also visit the Home learning info for parents section on our home learning page to find spelling lists for each year group and fun ways to learn spellings. 

English activity


Adjectives are describing words that are used to add more detail to nouns. In class we have been using adjectives to describe the characters in our stories and the animals we met at Marwell Zoo. I remember when we described the sloth as sleepy and the giraffe as ginormous!


Can you think of an adjective for every letter of the alphabet?

- You could think of a few a day.

- You don't have to write them all down.

- Maybe you could send in a video of you saying some of them!


A = amazing

B = brave

C = cool 

D = dull


By the end of Year 1 children should be able to tell the time to the hour, half past the hour and begin to think about quarter past the hour and quarter to the hour. If you know these times, can you start to think about the five minute intervals?


Activity: Can you make your own clock using materials from around your home?


Don't forget to think about:

- how to write your numbers carefully

- how to space the numbers out around the clock

- what each hand on a clock means

- what size the clock hands need to be


Challenge someone in your home to tell the time with a clock you have made or a clock you can find around your home.  


By the end of year 1 children should be able to identify and name everyday materials and describe their properties.

Activity: Can you go on a materials hunt? Can you find something to match the materials and properties in the pictures below?  


Topic - History

We have been learning about the Wright brothers and the different planes which have been invented. Now it is your turn to become an engineer and create your own paper plane!


Activity: Create a paper plane and measure how far it goes!


-You could use different types of paper around your home. I wonder if newspaper or goes further than a normal piece of paper.

- You could measure how far it went in so many different ways! You could measure in footsteps, with a tape measure or even Lego bricks. 

Below is a step by step on how to create a paper plane. If you know another way then that is brilliant too!

Outdoor Learning

Acitivty: Self portait nature faces


Next time you are in a garden or outside on your daily exercise collect some natural items such as flowers and leaves. You don't have to just make yourself, you could make a friend or someone in your family.
