a Pathway to Success

Friday, 15th May

Good Morning Year 1!

Friday again! Nearly the weekend and time to give those brains a rest from all the hard work you have been doing.



Complete ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’ on the Phonics Play website. Play ‘cheeky chimps’.

Your phoneme to focus on today is ow. Practice writing ow. This phoneme can make 2 sounds ow as in cow and ow as in snow.  Today we will focus on ow as in cow. Can you think of any words that contain ow?



Practice reading and writing the following words that contain ow:  now, cow, down, town, frown, brown, gown. Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these ow words? Please read through the attached flashcards with words containing ow.



Today it's reading and understanding what you are reading(comprehension).


Remember the answers will be in the text for you to find(retrieval)  Sometimes you have to use the clues in the text to work out your answer (inference, prediction and explanation).


If you come across any words(vocabulary) in the text you don't understand - find out what it means - new words are useful in your writing.


Finally, you may need to look at the order of the text(sequence) and think about what you read first, second, third.


Use your VIPERS knowledge to help you comprehend the text!



Warm-up =

Time for your beat that quiz – See if you can beat last week’s score! If you are consistently getting full marks even in a shorter amount of time and fancy a bit more of a challenge, try the year 2 beat that quiz under their section of the website (it does contain some time tables but we are aware that some of the year 1s had already started to grasp times tables).


Main Activity =

Hope you got on well reading o’clock times yesterday and that you managed to think carefully about the length of the clock hands. Today you have 2 sets of challenge questions to work through (you don’t have to complete both if you don’t want to). You have got some challenge questions on reading o’clock times and some challenge questions on the days of the week.


Have a wonderful weekend!
