Friday 5th March- Year One Home Learning

Good Morning from Mrs Marler and Mrs Bilbeisi!

Please note that there will not be a Google Meets session today, as all live sessions have been cancelled, in order to allow teachers to go into school and prepare for the return on Monday.

Your final day of online home learning, consists of:

Royal Duty No.1- PE

Remember to stay active whilst you’re at home. Get in that daily exercise as well as the fresh air when you can.

Today’s PE lesson is based on movement, stamina and problem solving. Take a look at the PDF document attached to see the instructions for our ABC Alphabet workout. You will need plenty of paper and a pencil for today’s task.

Have fun and stay active!

Royal Duty No.2- Independent Learning


Using the resources you have at home, can you recreate one of the famous London Landmarks. Check with an adult first, to see what they are happy for you to use. Resources you could use:

  • Blankets or cushions to recreate the landmarks through a den.
  • Lego
  • Clix
  • Blocks
  • Junk Modelling/ Recyling
  • Paper, card and cellotape

Royal Duty No.3- Phonics

Spin the Bottle

Write down all of the consonant blends that we have learnt this week and last week, on squares of paper and then lay them out in a circular shape.

Consonant Blends from this week and last week:

  • nt as in tent
  • nk as in ink
  • ft as in gift

Next, find an old bottle from your recycling. Place the bottle in the center of your sounds. Spin the bottle to see which consonant blend the bottle ends up facing and your job is to think of a word that uses that Phase Four Consonant Blend.

Create a bank of words from this game and see how many words you can come up with in total.

Take a look at the example below. You will see I have payed this game using phase 3 digraphs and trigraphs, using the same concept play the game using Phase Four Consonant Blends.

Time for a radiant royal fact!

The members of the royal family do not have any surnames. Instead, They use surnames representing their house or dynasty.

Have a fantastic day and a lovely weekend!

We are SOOOOOOO excited to see your happy smiling faces on Monday!
