Hello Year 1, we hope you enjoy your day in the snow.

To help to keep you busy we have listed some activities for you to complete, please use  the activities listed on our homework menu too.


We would love you to make a snowman and then write instructions for how you made your snowman. Try to include words like 'first, next, then' remember to be bossy!

Phonics, Reading and Spelling:

Use the games on Phonics Play to recap the Phase 5 graphemes that we have been learning. You can also access Collins to read your reading books (remember to get three comments in your home school links books to earn a scratchcard!) and Ed Shed to learn your spellings.

Now for something really fancy...If you scan the following QR codes on the camera of your phone, it will take you to past phonics papers...

phonics QR codes


Count from 0-50 forwards and backwards, challenge yourself by starting from different numbers. You could take your learning outside and write the numbers in the snow. Then you could choose a number-can you find one more and one less than your number? Can you use the 'greater than', 'less than' and 'equal to' symbols to compare numbers?

We use the following charts to help us when we are writing. We look at them before we write and then use them to check our work after we finish, to make sure we don't miss any out. We call them our writing non-negotiables. Can your child remember them all?
