For those children who are continuing their home- learning, please find resources below.
Please access these daily phonics lessons on YouTube.
By the end of year one, the children are expected to recognise, read and write words containing Set 1, 2 and 3 speed sounds.
Phonics Play will allow the children to practice their phonics skills while playing a variety of games. Phonics Play have provided free subscription during this time. Log in details can be found on their page- https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/
The children could also use these books as a stimulus for some writing-
If you've read a book about a party why not write your own invitation to a party of your choice!
If you're character has been on an adventure, why not record it in a diary entry.
Has your character been on holiday? Pretend you are with them and write a postcard home!
Alongside the children’s phonics work, we would highly recommend the children completing reading comprehensions. Many of these can be accessed on Twinkl by searching ‘Year 1 Reading Comprehension’.

We would also like to draw your attending to the Year 1 common exception words and high frequency words on Twinkl.
Again, the expectation is that children can read and spell these words by the end of year one.
Twinkl also has a plethora of phonics and story activities for you to access.
To support our teaching of Maths, we follow a programme called ‘The White Rose.’ They too, luckily, have provided free online access to parents. We would recommend making your way through these activity packs.
Snap Maths http://www.snappymaths.com/ and Twinkl also provide a range of number and number sentence worksheets, which may be of help.
Children may also access TT Rockstars (Log ins were sent home but if needed, please telephone the school office who will be happy to re-provide for you.) https://ttrockstars.com/ to develop their multiplication knowledge.
