Year 1 (Home Learning) – Monday 22nd February

Welcome Back Year 1,

We hope that you have had a marvellous week off from home learning and are feeling excited to see your friends and teachers on Zoom again – and to continue your learning from home journey!

Join in with this ‘Good Morning’ song to get you feeling positive and ready to tackle the day ahead:

The CBBC’s Lockdown Learning schedule for this week has not yet been published in England – we will keep a close eye and direct you towards the most useful programmes to support the children’s learning and development when the guide becomes available.

Sharing Pictures

  • Download and read Jessie & Friends: Sharing Pictures – the Storybook at
  • Use questions to chat about the storybook. For example:
    o Who did Tia want to send the pictures to at first?
    o How did more people end up seeing the pictures?
    o What made Mo feel sad?
    o How did Ms Humphrey help Jessie, Tia and Mo?
  • Ask your child to draw a picture of a grown-up who helps them
    and, (if they can) write the grown-ups name, all the things they do to help
    your child, and/or what your child admires about them.



  • I can say which country I live in. 
  • I can find Northampton on the map. 
  • I know my address. 

This week we are going to be exploring the United Kingdom!

As you can see, Mrs Roberts is very excited about our virtual trip around the United Kingdom!


Where do you live? Look at these maps of the United Kingdom … 

What are the four countries that make up the United Kingdom? 

Find where Northampton is … you live in England. If you come from England you are called English. 

Today we are going to have a look at the places that you can see in England!


Let’s go on a virtual trip around England … you might even want to dress up as a tourist (sunglasses, rucksack, camera, ect.)!

What can you see? Adults – please discuss important landmarks and features with the children.


Now let’s read some information from a Non-Fiction text to find out some interesting facts about England:


Main Writing Activity: 

Can you write where you live? What country do you live in? What town/village? What’s your address?

(If you are writing your full address, please do not share this – as it’s important not to share your address online)




Below is a picture of the English flag. Can you work out how many rectangles you can see within the flag?

Miss Simons has highlighted one that she found in blue … good luck!


White Rose: Subtraction – not crossing 10

Today you are going to subtract small numbers from teen numbers.

You may need:

  • 2 x ten frames
  • 20 ‘things’ to count with

Watch this video: 

Answer the questions: 



This is going to be an ongoing project throughout the week!

Today we went on a virtual tour of England. The English symbol is a rose because it is part of the country’s history.

We would like you to create your own English rose.

You can be as creative as you want and use whatever materials you have handy at home to do this!



Enjoy your first day back of home learning,

Miss Simons, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Billingham : )
