a Pathway to Success

Friday, 19th June

Good Morning Year 1,

Can you believe that it is Friday already? This week has flown by! We hope you have enjoyed your activities this week.


Here are your activities for today …


Daily recap of ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’ on the Phonics Play website.

Play game of your choice off Phonics Play (Phase 5)

Practice writing each common exception word 3 times and then put it into a sentence. Your 4 common exception words for today are: to, me, today, she.

Read a book – this can either be a book you have at home or from one of the websites previously suggested.



I hope you have enjoyed writing your Catch It story this week. Today I would like you to create a front cover and a blurb for your story.

Your front cover will need a title, name of the author (your name!) and an eye-catching illustration that will make people want to read your story.

The blurb is a short description of the story but remember not to give away key details. It is supposed to make people want to read the book to find out what happens. It might be useful to look at some blurbs from your own stories to get an idea of how to write them.

Enjoy and remember to post your work on your portfolio!



Warm-up =

Complete 3 more activities from your maths warm up PowerPoint.

Beat That Quiz – if you have completed it within 2 minutes 30 seconds, keep reducing your time to challenge yourself further.

Main Activity

Can you remember the difference between rows and columns?

Today you have got a practical activity – You will be making arrays. For this activity you are going to need some small objects e.g. counters, dry pasta, pebbles etc.

I have attached a sheet full of cards stating the number of columns / rows and repeated addition sums. Cut out all of the cards and then separate them into two piles. Choose a columns / rows card and then make that array using your small objects. Once you have made your array, find the matching repeated addition card and work out the answer by skip counting. I have attached a word document with a little example of what to do if this explanation is not clear enough.


Have a lovely weekend!
