Class EJ: Year 1 learners

Please find below a suggested weekly overview of activities - remember, do what you can - I realise we are all experiencing an unusual situation at the moment. Some children will enjoy this structured approach, whilst others will find it easier to use these activities (or others) if needed - there is no right or wrong approach - keeping our families safe and well is everyone's priority at the moment.


Within the table below, any writing in green is a link to another website.  The Maths lessons all link to the Oak National Academy resource. The Phonics lessons all link to the English hub videos for Year 1 learners (Phase 5). As I previously mentioned, we had worked through a lot of Phase 5 before the school closures, so these may provide a good recap for the children. As we are all a little out of practise, the Reception videos (Phase 3) and 'Learning to blend' videos may also prove useful, if needed.


A lot of the resources provided are online - please remember to only go online with an adult at home. It is important to stay safe online (just like in the real world!) Remember there are useful tips available on the 'Think you know' website.
