Class 1 remote learning for the day

Happy Thursday Class 1!

I hope that you enjoyed yesterday’s activities! I’ve seen some great up cycled items of clothing from the ‘Dress to Express’ challenge and I can’t wait to show you.

Here is your learning for today:

9.00- 9.35 EYFS Phonics and Early writing:

Today we will be learning the new sound ‘oi’. For your follow up task, I have a buried treasure game for you to play. Remember, to segment and blend the words to read them, then sort them into the table depending on whether they are a real or rubbish word. If you don’t have a printer, then draw a table and write the words into the right side. To make the task easier for your child, select fewer words to read and sort.

Year 1 phonics:

For your lesson today, you will be reviewing alternative ways of spelling sounds. Please follow the link to watch today’s video. Don’t forget to join in with the video, saying and reading the sounds and words.

For your follow up task, I have a phonics ‘bang’ game for you to play. Remember, if you don’t have a printer, just write the words out onto cards.

9.50- 10.30 Year 1 Literacy Live lesson

We will be using our bare bones story plan to write an interesting problem and resolution to our versions of ‘The Paper Bag Princess’.

10.50- 11.50 Maths Live Lesson

We will be consolidating our work on subtraction today and applying our skills to some problem solving.

You will find 3 levels of work. An easier reception task, a harder reception task and a Year 1 task. Choose the difficulty level based on your child’s confidence with their subtracting skills.

12.00- 12.20 Story time, snack and chat

Afternoon activities:

Continuing the theme of ‘Children’s mental health week’, I have a PSHE lesson for you today, looking at worries. Please follow the link to watch the teaching video. It is interactive and there are opportunities for discussion, so you will need to pause the video at various points.

She sets you a challenge of making worry dolls, so you might need to have a root around your house to see if you can find some of these things:

  • lollipop sticks
  • plastic cutlery
  • wool
  • fabric
  • glue
  • felt tips

As an alternative to the worry dolls, you might like to make a worry monster. If you write a worry down and put it into your worry monster, the idea is that the worry monster will eat your worries away.

Write down some of your worries onto a strip of paper using these sentence stems:

  • I am worried about…
  • My worry is…

Try your hardest to write your worry yourself. Don’t worry about correct spellings. Writing in the EYFS is all about being independent and writing using the sounds that you have learned so far.

Here are the worry monster instructions:


Enjoy your day!
