Year 1 – Home Learning Tasks

In preparation for school closure or in the event that your child is absent from school for an extended period of time, we have put together some activities that you may like to do at home.

On top of this, please keep reading every day; this could be a book from home or all children have access to bug club online - Your child’s login details should be stapled in the front of their reading journal. Please remember to write it in the reading record as this could become useful evidence for reading progress.

The children are very familiar with the website They have provided free access for all parents at this time. Username: march20 and password: home. The children are all learning the Phase 5 sounds.

We are currently learning about height and measure in Maths and will be moving on to multiplication and division in the Summer term. The children are expected to be able to count in 2s, 5s and 10s and put these into equal groups by sharing as well as make doubles. If you would like further support on this, we follow the White Rose scheme of learning. This can be accessed at

If you would like any further resources to help, has a huge variety of activities and resources available. These too have been made free for the time being. Please visit and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS.

We hope this helps and will be keen to hear about what the children have been up to on their return to school.

We wish you all well.

Kind regards,

Mrs Penfold, Miss Fitzgerald and Mrs Baker
