a Pathway to Success

Friday, 1st May

Good Morning Year 1,

We can’t believe how quickly another week has passed! It feels like such a long time since we last saw all of your lovely, happy faces. We miss you all so much and can’t wait for everything to get back to normal so we can all be reunited.


We hope you are all doing ok and that home learning is going well. We know how difficult it can be to try and work in your home environments but we’re sure that you’re trying your best and that’s all we can ask from you. Nearly weekend …


Here are your activities for today …



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

Log on to Classroom Secrets Kids. Year 1 > Spelling > Year 1 Spelling Game 1.

Your phoneme to focus on today is ie. Practice writing ie. Can you think of any words that contain ie?  Here is a video to introduce the phoneme:

Practice reading and writing the following words that contain the ie phoneme: tie, pie, cried, fried, spied, replied. We have attached some flashcards containing ie words for you to practice reading. Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these ie words?  



Today you have a comprehension activity to complete. It is a little different to the previous ones you have been doing. Rather than a picture you have got a short extract of text. Read the text and make sure you understand it before answering any of the questions.  



Warm up – 

Friday again which means it’s time for your ‘Beat that’ maths quiz – We have attached a sheet for you to give this a go at home if you want to. Put the timer on for 2 minutes and 30 seconds and see if you can beat last week’s score. If you feel you could do it in less time go for it. Good luck!


Main Activity –

Your next focus in Maths will be on money. Today you will start off by recognising the different coins.Get a selection of different coins. Can you say the value of each coin? What colour is each coin? Can you put the coins in order? What do you notice about the colour of the coins now they are in order? After you have completed the above task, have a go at completing the challenge questions based on recognising coins.

Once you have completed your activity there is a sorting game that you can play online -


Have a lovely weekend!

Miss C, Mrs P and Mrs C.
