Monday 27th April – Year 1

Happy Monday Morning Year 1,

We hope that you had a great weekend and were able to enjoy the glorious weather – making the most of our hour of daily exercise! We love reading and looking at what you have been up to at home, so thank you to those who have made contact and sent us pictures and updates of how you are getting on. We now plan to do a weekly post on Fridays to showcase all of your fantastic work from during the week. Keep amazing us Year 1 … we are so proud!
Before you get started, here’s an online safety question to discuss with your adult(s):

Now you’re ready … here’s your first set of activities for the week:

    1. Sounds-Write Phonics* Mrs Brookes has added some additional information for your adults to help with your Phonics at home! *

      We would also like to pass on this useful resource from Letters and Sounds – providing you with daily Phonics lessons at home:

      Please get in touch with us via email if you need any support in selecting appropriate lessons for your children.


  1. Reading/Writing

Reread the first few pages of our story again and then continue up to the final picture:

Look at this picture of the shoemaker and his wife:

They look like they are hiding from something … I wonder what and/or who they are hiding from?
Write a prediction using ‘because’ to explain your thinking.

  1. Maths

How many 2-D (flat) shapes can you draw? Do you know their names? What’s the same or different between them?

Can you make a picture of something using just shapes?
Here are some examples:

  1. Art
    Northampton has a long history of making shoes and is well-known for this. Our football team’s nickname is even The Cobblers!
    Here are some of the shoe factories in Northampton:
    Choose a shoe factory and create a detailed line drawing of it – thinking about your use of detail, pattern, line and tone.

We hope that you have a great day,
Miss Simons, Mrs Brookes and Mrs Roberts : )
