School Mission Statement

Monday 1st June

Here are the tasks for this week. All the resources can be found at the bottom of this page and all the Purple Mash tasks are already in your ‘Alerts’.

Whilst, home learning is a topic of a number of conversations at the moment, I really want to stress that above all, yours and your children’s happiness and wellbeing is the most important thing. Remember, just do what you can!

I have attached a timetable to the bottom of the page, which may help you structure your week a little more.


Literacy Tasks:

You will need to read or listen to the eBook ‘Starry-Eyed Stan’. There are two versions- the book version (see files below) or the video version (follow the link below).

  1. Phonics Videos on YouTube- Letters and Sounds, which is the scheme we use at school to teach Phonics from, are beginning a YouTube channel that goes through different Year 1 phonics sounds. They will be releasing videos every day from Monday to Friday at 10:30 and 11:00 for Year 1 pupils. They will be focusing on blending and reading words! 
  2. Answer the comprehension questions on the 'Starry-Eyed Stan' story. Make sure you answer the questions in full sentences, using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. Complete this activity in your blue books. I have also given the answers and examples of answers to these comprehension questions, so feel free to mark them at home!
  3. Imagine you have been on your first deep-sea dive. Write a diary entry all about what you saw on your first dive and how it made you feel. See the resources below for my own example of what this should look like and some useful diary entry tips. Please watch the video below of a dive as it may give you some ideas of what you may see on your dive. Please complete this task in your blue books! Remember to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and lots of adjectives!


Maths Tasks:

Please start off by following the link below and watching and joining in on this fun Maths/PE activity that will help you with your numbers to 100!

  1. Follow the lesson below called ‘Ordering Numbers’. Write any answers in your blue books. The answers will be given after the activity.
  2. Follow the lesson below called ‘Finding Number Patterns’. Write any answers in your blue books. The answers will be given after the activity. 
  3. Complete ‘1 less- 1 to 100a’ and ‘1 more- 1 to 100a’ activities on Purple Mash (they are not long tasks). It is a timed activity, but more than enough time is given.


RE Task:

God made us all to be different. One way we are different from each other, is by our talents. Stan from the eBook ‘Starry-Eyed Stan’ has a talent. His talent is to be able to sing. What talent or talents do you have? 

Write a paragraph about your talent and how it makes you feel when you are doing your talent. (See below for my example) Once you are finished, draw and colour in a lovely picture of you doing your talent. 


Art Task:

Using whatever resources are available in your home, create your own ‘Under the Sea Art’. Think about what it would look like under the sea, what animals you might find and what plants you might see. It is up to you what you decide to create (whether it is just a sea creature or an image of the underwater world- you could also try and recreate one of the pages from the story).

You may want to use paint, colouring pencils or use different materials to make this. It might be something nice to do with your family. I would love to see any final pieces (please email any pictures of them to the school office). 


Music Task:

For this task, I thought it would be a nice idea to get creative and make some musical instruments! If you look at the resources below, you will find a document that explains ways of making different musical instruments using objects that you most likely will already have in your homes!

Once you have made them, have some fun playing with your musical instruments, you may even want to try and make a song or play along with a song!


Geography Task:
Over the last few weeks, we have been looking at the seven continents! Quickly remind yourself of the continents by watching this short video and join in on the song!

Once you have reminded yourself of the continents, please follow this link, which will take you to the Oak National website where you will see a lesson on Australia (one of the seven continents). You will need your blue book and a pencil!
