Year 1 Home Learning

Dear Parents/Carers,
With all the concerns over the coronavirus outbreak and how this might impact schools and your child’s learning, we wanted to offer you some ideas to help you continue their education during school closure.  We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have prepared perfectly matched content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support.

For independent learning and games, we recommend using Classroom Secrets Kids (kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/). Packed with fun and engaging Year 1 content, this online learning platform will guarantee to keep your child learning independently.
For more practical resources and worksheets, we have included a learning pack perfectly matched to the Year 1 content. With a range of resources, these packs will help continue the learning inside your home.

Ideas to support your Year 1 child:

  • Find objects around your home and use your phonics to label them.
  • Read a book everyday and write a sentence about what happened in the story, remembering to include capital letter and full stops.
  • Collect 10 pairs of socks, use them to practise counting in 2s
  • Get a pile of your favourite toys or Lego, group them into tens an ones and count how many you have
  • Get some seeds and plant them, record how high your plant grows each day.

Purple Mash

Please can I encourage you to sign up for/install Purple Mash at home. Your child can access Purple Mash from home on a laptop, desktop or a tablet. Purple Mash is a safe environment that does not require any downloading or allow interaction with people online and children cannot make any financial transactions. We will be encouraging the children to continue their learning at home and Purple Mash is a great resource for this. Your child will be taught how to use Purple Mash in school and will be able to use it without supervision, but you may want to take a few minutes to explore it yourself so that you can help them with their work. Please click on the picture link to login to Purple Mash.

School Learning Zone

Please find a selection of resources for children in Year 1. 

The resources are a great and fun way to support and supplement your child's learning in school, develop their knowledge of the topic and encourage their love of learning.  

As with any internet access adult supervision is necessary when using these resources.  Whilst every effort has been made evaluate these sites for content, St Mary's School is not responsible for the content of external Internet sites.
