Goodbye 1B

Dear 1B,

it has been an absolute joy to be your teachers this year, we’re so sorry our time together was cut short, but I think you’ll see from this video that we packed in a lot of fun in the time we had!

We’re so proud of all of you. We know you’re going to have a fantastic time in Year 2 and we can’t wait to see all the wonderful things you get up to.

Thank you for being such a fantastic and fun class.

Have a wonderful summer and come and wave at us in September.

Miss Bell, Mrs Bambury & Mrs Taylor


Year 1 Maths: Shape trains.

Wow! It’s Thursday. let’s look at an investigation today. We are going to make 3D shape trains.

You will need a few 3D shapes of your own. You can use anything: lego, tins and boxes, fruit and vegetables.

Ok. Think about this first:

Ok. Now it’s time to try your own trains. How many different pattern trains can you make?

Year 1 Maths: Shape sorting.

Today, we are going to think about sorting shapes. There are lots of different ways to sort shapes. Find some things you can use to sort:



What else can you find?

Try these ideas to get you started:

That’s a great start. Now how about this…

Don’t forget to try your own sorting. Good luck super shapers!

Year 1 Maths: Shape

Hello! We are still thinking about shapes. Today we are going on a shape hunt. You can do this inside, or outside, or even by looking out of the window.

The world is made of 3D shapes. Here are some of them:

A vertex is where the edge or point of a shape meets. More than 1 vertex = vertices.

Ok. Now for the hunt, get looking! Don’t forget the information on the link will help with your shape vocabulary:

Find some shapes, count how many you find!

What are we using the shapes for? Clue: A cone is useful for ice cream isn’t it?

Year 1 Maths: Shaping up!

What do you know about 2D and 3D shapes? Here is a short video clip to help you remember. (It’s quite a way down the page, which has lots of useful information).

Here is some more shape information. You will need it this week:

Now play the pattern game.

Now try these patterns:

Try naming some shapes.

Now make some patterns of your own. You can use any shapes.

Distance Learning Year 1: wb 13/07/2020

Here is the plan for the last week of term. Have a great week. This week we are thinking about the Paper Bag Princess, and dragons!

Phonics: Practise as many sounds as you can. Keep trying these all summer long. Don’t forget to use these sounds in your reading and your writing.

Art: You will need: some paper, some pens or pencils, your imagination. Try making some art from just a doodle or a scribble. Make sure you draw lots of loop and whirls. Watch this for some ideas to get started:

Wellbeing: Take a calming trip with Cracker the Dragon. Make a space to stretch and relax:

Music: Don’t forget to keep checking Miss Middleton’s amazing music site on the blog. Try some body percussion. Practise this one, then make up your own body percussion beats, what sounds can you make just using your own body?

Science: Are dragons real? Can you find anything in the real world that is named after a dragon? Animals? Fruits or vegetables? Buildings? Why do think these things are named after dragons? What features do they have? Here is something to start you off: Perhaps you could try making a foaming dragon

History: The Paper Bag Princess lived in a castle. Find some information about castles here. Try drawing a plan of a castle you design. Or plan a meal for a Princess.

Computing: Remember your typing skills from last week? Keep playing these games to get better and better.

English: The Paper Bag Princess.

Can you still be a Princess if you are wearing a paper bag? How can you tell if someone is a Prince or a Princess?

What sort of Prince or Princess would you be? Where would you live? What would you eat? What would you do all day? What special powers would you have? Write down your ideas, and draw and label a picture to explain them.

Do you know any other books or stories that are like The Paper Bag Princess?

Maths: 2D and 3D Shapes. Can you recognise and name shapes? What are the features of each shape? Here are some words you might need: Sides, corners, vertices, edges, point, faces. We set a maths activity on the blog each day. Please check them out!

Spelling: burn, wear, she, put, came

Year 1 History: Castles.

Have a look at the picture of the castle. Using the information here, and on the website, can you design your own castle?

Look at this picture of a castle. Use it to help you plan your own castle. Don’t forget to leave space for your dragon!

What job do you think you might have had in the castle? Look at these jobs (and there’s a quiz on the link) and choose a job. Or perhaps you would like a different job. Write about why you think you would be good at that job.

Year 1 Reading

Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion

Have a look at the end paper from this story.

What do you notice?

What is different?

What is the same?

Do they give you any clues about the story?

What do you notice about the text on this page?

Why is the writing so big and bold and in capitals?

Do you think this is a very clever plan? Why do you think it is or isn’t clever?

Here is the full story. Does it remind you of any other stories you know?

Here is little Red’s journey. You could have a go at drawing a journey you have been on recently. Maybe a trip to the park. You could draw an imaginary journey.

You might enjoy these stories by the same author, Alex T Smith.
