a Pathway to Success

Friday, 3rd April

Good Morning Year 1,

Happy Friday!

Hope you are all ok and having lots of fun at home!


Here are your activities for today …


Go onto the Phonics Play website. You can access this on a tablet using the address         username: march20   password: home

Click on phase 5 on the menu that appears at the left hand side of the screen. Practice phonemes and tricky words using ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’. Then, play a game of your choice. Your phoneme to focus on today is augh. Practice writing augh. Can you think of any words that contain augh?

Practise reading and writing the following words that contain the augh phoneme. Taught, daughter, caught, naughty.

Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these augh words?  



How did you get on with the riddles yesterday? I imagine you did a fantastic job of them. You have all worked really hard this week on your adjective activities. We will be finishing this week with a comprehension activity.

Please find the attached document containing a picture and questions. Remember to discuss the picture first before you start answering any questions. You can either answer the questions verbally or in writing – your choice!



Warm up – 

Practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Quick recall of number bonds to 10 and 20 using hit the button.

Here is today’s game idea (optional of course): Have you ever played the game ‘Guess Who’?

Today's game is similar to Guess Who but a number version. You will need 1 other person to play along with. Both of you need to write some numbers between 0-20 (however many you want depending on how long you want the game to last) on small pieces of paper.

Then take it in turns to describe your number so the other player can guess what number you have. For example, if I was describing the number 11, I might say … It is an odd number, it is 1 more than 10 and its number bond pair to make 20 is 9.


Main Activity –

Today you will be focusing on adding 2 numbers together. In school we have learnt a range of different methods to add 2 numbers together. We have used practical objects e.g. for 5+4 we got 5 counters and 4 counters and counted them all together. We have learnt to count on our fingers, always remembering to start with the biggest number. Finally, we have learnt to draw pictures/dots to help us e.g. for 5+4 we would draw 5 dots and then 4 more dots and count how many we have all together.

Today we have given you a worksheet full of additions. For each sum we would like you first to try and calculate the answer using your fingers. Then, we would like you to check your answer by using objects or dots (or both!) as explained above. The reason we would like you to check your answers is because it is so easy to make a mistake and you need to get into the habit of checking your answers to be a super mathematician. We don’t want to be getting the easy ones wrong do we?


Hope today’s activities go well and that you have a lovely weekend 😊
