Year 1 (Home Learning) – Thursday 14th January

Hello Year 1,

We hope you’ve had a hearty breakfast this morning and are feeling ready for another day of Remote Learning!

Miss Simons’ read this book this morning and really enjoyed it – perhaps you could read it, or listen to your adult/the audio read it (as you follow the words)?

Don’t forget to record any reading in your yellow Reading Records, as we are looking forward to dishing out lots of WOW Points when we return to school!

Here is a video explaining how to access this story book via Oxford Owl’s Free eBook Library:

A reminder of the expectations of Home Learning:

  • There will be a daily Zoom registration @ 10:40am, during which a member of the Year 1 Team will greet the children and discuss the activities for the day ahead.
  • The expectation is for children to be on the daily Zoom registration and engaging with the set activities on our Year 1 Blog – Phonics, Literacy, Maths and a Curriculum subject.
  • Please email children’s work across to their class teacher at:



Here are your activities for the day:


Here is a clip of Mrs Tucker showing you how we teach Phonics at Lings:

There are two Phonics (1 & 2) plans below. Please email us to find out which plan is most suitable for your child.


Phonics Plan 1

For letter sound practise:     


Phonics Plan 2

For letter sound practise:     




Look at this picture of a tree that can be found in the forest:

Who do you think might be living in the tree? 

Write down your ideas in a series of sentences.

Make sure that you use capital letters, leave spaces between words and end your sentences with full stops.

Remember … anything can happen in a magical forest!  





Play a game of The Price is Right with your adult – adults will hopefully remember this game!

Ask your adult to choose a number between 1-20 and write it down somewhere safe.

Now try to guess the number – after each guess, your adult will respond either, ‘higher’ or ‘lower’.

The game continues until you guess the correct number.

Now you can swap places and play again.
