Year 1 2021 - 2022

Miss Coleman

Welcome to Year 1


Home Learning
I have uploaded lots of useful links for parents to follow. I upload my planning weekly that has resources and links attached, please use at your discretion and don't feel pressured to stick to it. Do what suits you and your family situation at this difficult time.

 Currently we would be covering Traditional Tales in English, Weight and Mass in Maths and focusing on set 3 sounds in Phonics. The children should also have pink books with work in to be completing and choosing daily at home.

I am aware that some parents are still working from home and finding it difficult to get through much. I have added booklets that the children should be able to work through independently.

If you need anything, please email with the subject Year 1 / Miss Cadogan

BBC Teach - all subjects are on here and there are some really good links and videos.

My Maths you all have our school log in for MyMaths but also an individual log in. If you use the school log in, you can access all the lessons, activities and problems.

White Rose Maths This is the Maths scheme that the school follows and we use in class. White  Rose have released online resources for home learning.

Oxford Owl this site has some ebooks for your children to read or for you to read to your child. Please use the class log in   username- y1joseph  password- Y12020

RWI Phonics

We're streaming three, short Speed Sounds lessons for children to watch at home every weekday on our YouTube channel.

Films for parents (please click to take you to the Ruth Miskin page, use the arrow to load more videos)

Films for parents to help their child learn to read at home with Read Write Inc.

They are adding a parent film to Facebook every day too.

YouTube The children love a song and video. Mr Thorne and Geraldine Giraffe are worth a watch when practising a specific sound for phonics. You can type in Mr Thorne Phonics followed by any special friend and a video will appear to accompany learning the sound. Jack Hartmann does some very catchy singing videos for counting. We count to 100 every day with Jack and he also does videos for counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Twinkl Twinkl has allowed free access for parents. They have provided worksheets, plans and packs for each subject. This is a brilliant resource for parents to help at home with endless resources.

Phonics Play Phonics Play have given the username:march20  password:home and allowed free access for the month. This provides a game format for children to use their phonics. Phase 5 is where most children will be. A particular favourite is Buried Treasure, Picnic on Pluto and Tricky Word Trucks.

Purple Mash  For Year 1 Purple Mash has some great learning games. I will set these as ‘2Dos’ for the children so when you log in, if you click 2Do you will see tasks that are Year 1 appropriate.

The Body Coach Kids Workouts You can use these five minute workouts to keep you active during your time at home! Why not get everyone at home involved! Joe Wicks will also be starting 'PE with Joe' starting on Monday 23rd March at 9am on his youtube channel. (The Body Coach TV- youtube) 

I have copied some links that are either good games or resources. I will update these as I find them:

Top Marks is a good website for Maths resources and games

This game would be good for practising number bonds, halving and doubling

BBC bitesize has some good resources for all subject areas. I tend to use for Science and Topic
