Year 1

Hello Year 1 children. We hope that you are all keeping well and that you are enjoying the activities that we are putting onto the website.yes



Today we would like you to listen to the story of 'Oliver's Vegetables'. It's one of our favourite books and it's all about Oliver discovering about different vegetables when we goes to stay with his Grandpa and Grandma.

When you have listened to it, we would like you to have a go at writing the story yourself. You could also draw some pictures to illustrate your story. You can go back and watch it again if you need to.

Don't forget to write in sentences, using a capital letter and a full stop. Also use all of your Speed Sounds to help you to sound out the words.

This week we are looking at place value- which means finding out exactly how a number is made up and what a number means. We need to know what numbers are worth before we can start using them in calculations and problems. 

Today we would like you to use the 100 square to help you work out the missing numbers.

Remember...numbers are all about patterns. Look for these and it will help you!

History- VE Day

On Friday, people across the country will be celebrating the 75th anniversary of VE Day. This was the day when the Second World War ended back in 1945. To help you find out more about why this is happening, we would like you to look at the fact file (ask a grown up if there are some tricky words you might need some help with) and then do the medal activity underneath.
