Year One - Home Learning Activities

Here you will find a selection of activities each week to support your child with their learning whilst at home. Scroll down the page to view:

  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Topic
  • PE
  • RE 

You can find an example of a timetable for supporting your child under the 'home learning timetables' tab. Remember, the most important thing is that your child is safe and healthy. So, you may follow this exactly or do your own thing entirely. Keep sending in those pictures and updates to Class Dojo - they're great!

Oak National Academy

Oak National Academy offers free online classrooms for you and your children. It has been created by over 80 teachers with backing from the government. Lessons cover EYFS to Y6, in literacy, maths and science, plus, history, geography, art and languages. Each day, there are at least three hours of lessons. There is also a specialist curriculum for those with additional needs.


Each day, practise the words from both lists and test yourself. Click on 'My Class Login' to play the interactive spelling games.

Here, you will also find the interactive eBooks to listen to your child read and ask questions to check their comprehension.

Head over to Hamilton's web page to find your daily grammar: Here you will find the power point to support your learning. There is a lot to get through here and I am not expecting you to. However, if you're up for a challenge and missing Literacy lessons then there's so much to tackle!



I appreciate how tricky it is to support your children with new concepts in Maths, so there are different options available.

BBC Bitesize offer daily interactive lessons to revise the work that we have already done this year in class. Or, if your child feels confident to watch the White Rose videos and have a go at the new topics in Maths, that's great too (answer sheets are available).


Remember to keep practising those all-important times tables! Play and compete against your friends on TTRockstars.

The Annual Duck Race Sweepstake for
BBC Children in Need will return this year.
They need your help to design a duck
to compete in the race.

You will need to design your duck, name it, highlight any key features, give it a score across different attributes and abilities and upload your design to the BBC Children In Need website.

The template and full instructions are attached to this post.

If you also upload your designs as photos on the related "task", I will share them on our Class Story for your friends to see!Design a duck


Each morning, tune into The Nation's PE Teacher and sweat!


On Friday afternoons, you may want to celebrate all of your work completed in the week and mark the start of the weekend. Strictly's Oti Mabuse is offering dance classes, check out her videos!
