Year 1 (Home Learning) – Tuesday 2nd March

Hello Year 1,

Just a reminder that World Book Day is due to take place virtually this Thursday 4th March.
We set you a half-term activity to create your own costume – Miss Kinsella instructed that your costume must be made of recycled materials, e.g. cardboard boxes, pastic bottles, paper, ect.
Get creative and have lots of fun!


FAO: Parents & Carers
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 an additional Curriculum subject.
  • Please email children’s work across to their class teacher at:


Here are your activities for the day:


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:


  • I can write a diary entry in the correct format.
  • I can describe what I have seen on my trip to London.

Yesterday we got on a bright red, double-decker bus and went on a tour around London.

Today we are going to write a diary entry about what we saw.

When we write a diary, we write in first person – which means you use the personal pronoun, ‘I’.


Look at the entry that Miss Simons wrote in her diary yesterday:


Monday 1st March 2021

Dear Diary,

We have now reached our final week of home learning and I am very excited for the children to come back to school! I have really enjoyed seeing their smiley faces on Zoom every morning and doing our Phonics together online. Today the children went on a pretend journey to London and explored the capital city on a red double-decker bus. I can’t wait to see their word banks of what they saw and where they visited in London.


Miss Simons


Using your word banks that you created yesterday …

What did you see? What did you hear? Where did you visit? Did you have fun?

Main Activity: 

Write a diary entry about your day out exploring London.

Remember to include all of the key features of a diary, e.g. ‘I’, ‘Dear Diary’ and ‘From’.
