Year 1 Home Learning

Here are some activities that you can do with your children at home whilst the school is closed. Please check back regularly as I will be updating this page with new activities. 

The Home Learning grid has a lot of activities to do and I would anticipate that these will last at least a couple of weeks if not more!

From Monday 23rd March, Ruth Miskin (the lady who wrote our phonics approach) is scheduling Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons on Facebook and YouTube for children to watch at home. Hooray!


They will release three short Speed Sound lessons on her you tube channel:

with one of their trainers every day for the next two weeks. The films will only be available at the times below:


Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12.30 pm

Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm

Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm

Please note: the films are streamed live and won’t be available at other times.


This is a super opportunity to continue your child’s phonics practice as we would in school and I strongly urge you all to watch them. For children in year 1, the set 3 sounds are the ones we are currently practising. However, we often revisit set 2 so the children could watch this too; perhaps one in the morning and one in the afternoon?

Parents, feel free to join in the phonics fun too!
