Good Morning Year 1!

Here are your activities for today …



Start off with your daily recap of ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’ on the Phonics Play website.


Can you remember what a suffix is? What is an adjective? Which suffix did you work on yesterday?

When you added the -er suffix to adjectives yesterday it was quite straightforward as the root word did not need to change, we simply added -er. E.g. in colder, cold is the root word and we just added -er without changing the spelling of cold.

Look at these 2 words: nicer  niceer.

Which one is spelt correctly? What do the words say? What is wrong with the word spelt incorrectly?

Today you will be adding -er to adjectives which end in an e e.g. nice. When we add -er to an adjective that ends in an e we drop the e and add er to make nicer rather than niceer.

Please complete the attached worksheet where you must practice adding the suffix er to adjectives that end in an e.



Today, you are going to continue with your letter from the Rainforest, Desert or North or South Poles.


I have written the next part of my pretend journey to London.  Get your grown up to read it to you - it will give you an idea of the sort of detail you need to include in your letter about your first day.


Part three incoming tomorrow!



Warm-up =

Number bonds to 20 recall (verbal or using daily ten / hit the button).

Please see the attached worksheet with some sums on. Some of them are correct and some are incorrect. Today to warm up your brains you need to pretend to be the teacher and mark the work. If you think the sum is incorrect, you must work out what the correct answer would be.

Main Activity

I hope you enjoyed your 2D shape hunt yesterday and managed to find something to match each of the shapes.

First I would like you to start off by doing another shape spelling test to see if you can beat your score from the other day. Remember if there are any that you get incorrect use the look, cover, write, check method to practice. Here is a reminder of the spelling words: circle, square, rectangle, triangle, pentagon, hexagon, octagon.

Then you have 2 worksheets of questions about 2D shapes, please don’t feel that you need to complete both of them. You will have seen this style of worksheet before but just to remind you that the questions go from least to most challenging and the answers are provided on the final page. Therefore, you can pick and choose which questions to answer based on your level of understanding. I have also attached a PowerPoint which I would recommend running through before moving onto the questions. It will give you an idea of the type of questions you will be answering so that you can hopefully complete the worksheet independently.

Finally, I have attached a shape game for you to play with somebody in your house.
