a Pathway to Success

Good Morning Year 1,

Hope you are all OK. Keep up the hard work 😊

Here are your activities for today …


Complete ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’ on the Phonics Play website. Log into Classroom Secrets Kids – Year 1 > Spelling > Common Exception Words Set 1 Year 1. 

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

Practice reading and writing the following words that contain the e_e phoneme: Eve, Pete, Steve, these, extreme, complete, concrete. We have attached some flashcards containing e_e words for you to practice reading. Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these e_e words?  


Today we will be looking at a different type of sentence – commands. We have looked at these in school when we have written instructions. Remember a command is a direct instruction telling someone to do something. Commands normally start with an imperative verb (bossy verb). For example, ‘Eat your lunch’, eat is the imperative verb.

Sometimes we use an exclamation mark (!) after a command. We only use a ! if we raise our voice or want to use emphasis. Here is a nice little video about commands:

You have 2 activities for today …

First we would like you to think of some commands that would need an exclamation mark. We have attached a worksheet for you to complete or you could think of your own commands.

Then, we would like you to write a set of instructions on anything you choose. It could be how to make something (food or craft), how to get dressed, how to brush your teeth, how to play a game etc. Instructions are a set of commands but they generally aren’t as bossy so you won’t need to use exclamation marks. Remember to make sure your instructions are clear and don’t miss out any details.


Warm up – - Level 1 > Addition > Up to 25.

Main Activity –

How have the missing number problems been going? We hope you are feeling more confident with them now. Today we have set you a mixture of the different missing number sums that we have been learning about over the past couple of days. You will need to draw your own part whole model and think of the correct method to solve the problem. It might be worth a quick recap of the methods you have been using before you start your activity.
