Year 1 Remote Learning – Wednesday 13th January

Wednesday 13th January 2021


Wednesday – it’s already the middle of the week!  Keep up all of your hard work at home.  We are very proud of you all.

Online Phonics Lessons

Owls starting at 9:15. Please log on at 9:10 to be ready and waiting.

Hedgehogs starting at 10:00.  Please log on at 9:50 to be ready and waiting.

We will have a quick hello with the children before the lesson starts.

You will have received an email invitation to join a meeting at 9:15. We have invited all of the children in each class who are learning at home to this one session at the same time.

After our initial hello please make sure:

  • a parent is in the room with you
  • your microphone is muted
  • your camera is turned off

We need you to do this so we are sure that the Internet signal is strong enough to deliver the lesson to a large number of children at once.  You will also need a pencil and paper. Parents will need to help with these sessions to ensure their child is speaking at the computer and trying to sound the words out accurately with writing.


Phonics lesson – Go on Bug Club and play the ‘igh’ spelling game.


Please work through the PowerPoint about Instruction Writing.  There are lots of different ways we use instructions.

Wednesday 13th January – Introduction to Instructions



We are starting to practice our mental maths.  On WordPress there will be mental maths sheet for the children to practice their number bonds to 10.  We are working towards the children being able to complete one column in 2 minutes or faster!  Please only complete one column per day – the sheet is for a whole week. They can use their fingers to help if they need to.

Children should now be confident making and exploring numbers greater than 10, they will now compare groups of numbers.

This builds on, and continues to use vocabulary of comparison such as; greater than, less than and equal to. Because children have explored finding the difference, they can use this as a strategy to find out how many more.

When you have worked through the PP please complete your worksheet either One Star, Two Star or Three Star.  Your groups for maths work has been sent out to you on an email.  Please only complete one set of work.
