Welcome to the Year 1 learning at home page


This page has been developed to support  families who are currently at home for a sustained period (due to self-isolation, social distancing etc). This page will be updated each week to ensure that your child has instant and immediate access to learning opportunities that are current and reflective of the learning that is taking place in school.  


During any time away from school, please do not feel under any pressure to complete all of the activities.  Find a routine that suits the needs of your family.  We cannot stress enough the importance of daily reading.  See below for 7 top tips to support reading at home.


Thank you from all of us in Team Year 1

Our top tips for reading at home...

Still image for this video
We love to read in Year 1, and we are missing having our story time with you all so much! But we really hope you can share a story together at home with your family. These are Year 1's top tips for story time (our favourite time of the day). See you soon : )


What should I do if I see something upsetting online?

Stop – If you see something you don’t like, then don’t click on it. If something appears during a video

you are watching, close it.


Think – Remember, you are safe.  Don't answer any messages that are upsetting.  Only kind and sensible things should be shared online.


Share TELL a trusted adult as soon as you can so that they can block and report anything upsetting.

Knowledge Organisers


Below are the Knowledge Organisers we are currently using in Science and History/Geography. A Knowledge Organiser is a document which shows the key vocabulary, facts and concepts that we want children to fully understand and be able to discuss by the end of the unit.   A Knowledge Organiser also gives children a chance to do some further research and reading at home.  An important part of learning is recalling and remembering these key words and facts.  Quick, fun quizzes and regular revision and discussion at home will support your child to embed this essential information.  Every time your child recalls a fact, the easier it is for the brain to find and remember the next time!
