Year 1 Home Learning – Thursday 7th January

Good Morning,

Thank you for all of your fantastic work yesterday. I apologise for the website crashing so I know a lot of you are running behind with your work.

I have reduced the workload by making English optional today. If you would like to do it, it is still attached.

For today’s work, you have Maths, Phonics, PE and History.

I hope you enjoy the work.


For Maths we are carrying on with place value, counting one more and one less than a given number.

Please have a go at these questions: One more one less lesson 2


For English, you will need to use the plan you completed yesterday to write your recount. Recount lesson 2

We are starting a new topic in History called ‘All Aboard!’ Today we will be learning about George Stephenson who was the inventor of the first steam train.

I have uploaded a PowerPoint which will explain more about who George Stephenson is. You can also use your computer or iPad to search for ‘George Stephenson facts ks1’ and find some interesting facts about him and what made him so important to our lives today. All about George Stephenson powerpoint

When you find these then please fill in the factfile with these facts. You can even colour in the picture of him as well! Factfile

As an extra task, see if you can find the most interesting fact you can about George Stephenson and write it down.

Year 1 Advent Collective Worship

Today in Year 1 we had a collective worship all about the Nativity and Advent. We talked about what Advent is and what we are waiting for. We looked at the Nativity story and picked out the main points of the story. Then we used nativity characters to act out the story on our tables. We then gathered around the focal point to sing ‘Away in a manager’.


Thank you for such a lovely last day of term Year 1.

I hope everybody has a relaxing and wonderful Christmas!

Keep safe.

Year 1 Christmas Party Day

Year 1 have had the best Christmas party day! Santa could not visit us in school this year so as a special treat we got to speak to Santa on the computer!! He answered our questions and told us all about his reindeer. Year 1 then got a special visitor from Pingu the Penguin, Year 1 must look after him this week! We got to play party games and have a dance in the hall. Then we had party food in the classroom with lots of treats. It was the best day ever!! 🙂

Year 1 Christmas Jumper Day

Year 1 have had a fantastic Christmas Jumper Day!

We have made lots of Christmas arts and crafts. We made Christmas cards and saw a Viking on stilts playing the pipes! So we had to have a little dance 🙂 The school raised lots of money for the Brain Tumour North East Charity, which is absolutely fantastic. Thank you everybody for your generosity! We then got to enjoy an amazing Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and watch the pantomime. All in all, a great day!
