Class 1 activities for the day

Happy Monday Class 1!

Can you believe we’ve made it to the last week of home learning before the Summer holidays start.

Here are today’s suggested activities:

For phonics, please don’t forget to head to YouTube at these times to watch the daily phonics: Letters and Sounds video.

Reception: 10.00 am and then again at 11.00 am if you still need blending support to read cvc words i.e. map and cat

Year 1: 10.30 am

For your reading tasks, I have a caption and picture match activity for you to do. Please read the captions and draw a line to the matching picture. Reception is purple and Year 1 is yellow.

For the Reception children’s main activity for Literacy, I would like you to create a sun safety poster. Watch the story video below and discuss the following questions:

  • How can the sun hurt us?
  • What can we do to protect ourselves from the sun?
  • How will this help us to stay safe?
  • What things do you do to keep yourself safe from the sun?

Then have a go at creating your own poster using the frame below. Keep the sentences simple i.e. put on sunglasses. Don’t forget to sound out your words and write the sounds you can hear. Also remember capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.


For maths, I would like you to practise recognising and ordering numbers to 20. Practise counting to 20, by singing along with this video:

For your main activity I would like you to use your counting skills to put the numbers to 20 in the correct order:

Year 1s will need to head over to BBC Bitesize for their daily maths and literacy activity. Today you will be learning how to tell time to o’clock and about the structure of a story.

For your afternoon activity, I would like you to have a go at creating bubbles. Here is a recipe:


Can you collect objects from around your house, that you can use as bubble wands i.e. straws, string, sticks or pipe cleaners turned into bubble wands. Here are some ideas:

Do the bubbles always come out as spheres, no matter what shape the bubble wand is? Why not investigate by creating different shaped bubble wands.

Have a lovely day!
