We have been thinking about rhyming words and writing our own versions of ‘Hey Diddle Diddle’.

Can you make the longest rhyme string?

Here’s one to start you off: cat, fat, bat, rat, sat, that, hat.

Can you make a longer one?

Or you might like to make you own version of another rhyme. Have fun!

Look at the fruit and vegetables you eat this week. Where do you think they grow? Underground, on the ground or in a bush or tree?

You can write your answers on this blog or draw a picture and bring it into school. You could explain to your class how your favourite fruit or vegetable grows and bring it into school if you like!

Year 1 Easter Home Learning

Practise telling the time. We have been looking at O’clock and half past times.

How do you know when it is 8 O’clock? Where are the hands? What about half past 8?

You could use the clock you made to practise this.

You could wear a watch over the holidays to help you practise too.

What time do you get up? Have breakfast? A bath? Lunch? Dinner? Brush your teeth?

You could write down the times you do different things each day.

Have a fabulous holiday Year 1 and see you all in two weeks time!
