Friday 3rd July

PDF version available at the bottom of this page.


Good Morning Year 1, please see below the activities we would like you to do today. Remember you can take photos (if you have made, shown or drawn something) or use your exercise book to write any sentences or complete any number sentences.

We hope you have fun!


LO:  I can write the sounds ‘ll’, ‘ff’, ‘zz’, ‘ss’, ‘ve’ ‘nk’ and ‘tch’.


Today we would like you to have a go at a spelling video from Ruth Miskin’s channel. This will get you back into practising your Fred fingers and writing your sounds.
When you have finished, we would like you to practise one of the above sounds. We have attached some spelling activities to help you remember the sounds. These sounds are the end of Year 1 expectations!

Alternatively, if you don’t have a printer, you could practise spelling the following words: buzz, miss, off, pass, stick, sock, think, blink, catch, stretch, jumping, washed, cats, glasses.
If you want a challenge, you could try to put them in sentences.

LO:  I can tell the time to o’clock and half past.


This week we have been looking at two different times on a clock; half past and o’clock.

Today we have found some games on Education city for you to play to help you with telling the time.

These have been set for you so all you will need to do is log on and click on My City to access them. They will be saved as ‘Friday 3rd July – Year 1’

LO: I can understand what a spreadsheet is and what it looks like.


Today we are going to be looking at a type of computer programme called a spreadsheet. Spreadsheets are used to help organise information e.g. if you were having a party, you might use a spreadsheet to organise all of the things that you need for your party. Today we are going to use Purple Mash to learn how to enter information and do some simple calculations. Once you have logged on we would like you to type into the search bar ‘2Calculate’.

Open ‘2Calculate’ and select the “sheet” option at the top and select the first box under the “empty sheets” part. We would like you to spend some time helping your children understand what a row and column look like and what a cell is (e.g. each box). Explain that we move from cell to cell by using the arrow keys on our keypad or by pressing enter if we have typed something in a cell. Similarly if we have typed something wrong, we can change it by pressing backspace or the delete key.

We would like you to explore using this “spreadsheet” today and experiment by typing some information in the boxes (this could be names of family members, favourite animals or perhaps a list of friends etc.) Encourage the children to move from cell to cell using the instructions above to support them. Then we would like you to save your spreadsheet, You are all amazing at saving your work at school!
