Year 1 – Remote Learning – WC 08/02/21

by 5 Feb 2021Year 1

Hello Year 1 and parents! This page is where you will find all that you need for your home learning.




Small group TEAMS calls will occur straight after whole group calls; Mr Wignall/Miss Hussain will ask certain children to remain on the call. These children must stay on the whole group call whilst all other teams have left and the small group session will begin.  For example; Monday’s Year 1 TEAMS call: 10.30am-11am, at 11am- specific children will stay on with Miss Hussain/Mr Wignall whilst the rest of the year group leave the call.

We will use the Teams meeting to go through the writing lessons for the week.

  • *Please send any Writing evidence in (to the remote teacher) by Friday please so we can log it and file it*


  • ——————–When opening documents from this post; please ensure not to type straight on to them as it will edit the document———————————-

Overview:  Week 6 Timetable –  Talk through 

Above is a copy of the timetable. All the resources for each day are listed further down the page. You should complete any work in your Home Learning exercise book. Alternatively, If you would like to print the worksheets, you could stick them into your home learning book. If you want to share your work and get feedback this week, ask your parent to email a photo/scan to Miss Hussain at

For Maths, we are focusing on counting in 2’s and 5’s and moving onto measurements. Please find the videos and worksheets below. You can answer the questions in your Home Learning book if you prefer or print the work sheet. PLEASE NOTE: There is a link to the video on the 1st page of the power point.

Please find some great resources to explore below;

For English, we have written some fantastic non-chonological reports on Peru and the ones we have seen have been amazing! I hope it has taught some important research skills as well as writing skills. For the final week we are going to do another report on London. So for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday we will be repeating the sequence of research, plan and write for our new report. We hope that for this report the children will be a bit more independent as this is a key skill we are looking for. Encourage the children to use their phonics, grab the sounds and write them down. We cant wait to see the final reports!
