Good Morning Year 1

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the work you have been sharing on your dojo portfolios – it is lovely to see you have been working hard and enjoyed learning about VE day!



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

Your phoneme to focus on today is oo as in moon. Practice writing oo. Can you think of any words that contain oo?

Practice reading and writing the following words that contain oo: moon, soon, broom, drool, stool, hoover. Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these oo words?

Today you will be looking at balancing addition sums. Go through the attached PowerPoint to understand what to do. There are some questions for you to do as you go through the presentation (remember to watch it as a ‘slideshow’ otherwise it will show you the answers straight away). Then complete the worksheet.



Can you remember what kind of word a noun is?  It's the name of a person, place or thing.  Nouns can be proper or common.  Make an alphabet of proper and common nouns.


Write a recount of your V.E. Day and draw a picture or do it on the computer and practise your keyboard skills and maybe include a photograph.


We had a street party with lots of bunting and decorated windows.  Everyone sat outside their own house and had a picnic.  John and Maria at number 18 played music from the 1940s.

It was lovely to meet and get to know the new neighbours Peter and Lorraine.  The sun shone, the children scooted up and down the street and it was a very a happy day.
