Thursday 2nd 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 read a familiar text at the rate of 50 words per minute.


We would like you to start by watching a Phase 2 or 3 Read Write Inc Phonics Lesson on Ruth Miskin’s YouTube channel.

Today for your English we would like to focus on reading accurately and speedily. We would like you to choose a book from home, or you could choose your reading colour book on Oxford Owl.

You need to practise reading your story book, Fred talking if you need to using your story teller voice. We would like you to practise reading until you feel confident, you could talk about some of the words and what the events in the story are. When you feel confident, we would like you to see how many words you can read in a word, accurately. At the end of Year 1, you should be able to read 50 words per minute, this might be tricky so keep practising!


Story book or Oxford Owl E-Book.


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. We know these can be tricky so we would like you to have a practise at reading them. We need your help as our times have got all muddled and we would like you to see if you can sort them into the two different groups. See attached sheet. You will simply need to cut out the clocks, look at the times carefully and stick all the o’clock times on one page and all the half past times on another page.

LO: I can identify some similarities and differences between the ceremonies studied.


Can you remember anything about a Christian Baptism? We looked closely at this ceremony last week. This week we are going to compare this to the Islamic ceremony.

Welcoming a baby in the Islamic faith however is very different. The most important thing at the centre of all Muslim life is faith in Allah. Because of this a new baby has a prayer whispered in its ear. The most important words of the prayer are ‘Allahu Akbar’- God is great. The whole prayer is called the ‘Call to Prayer’ as it calls Muslims to worship Allah.

They also consider those less fortunate than them. When a baby has their hair, they shave it off and weigh it. The weight of the hair is the weight in gold that the family give to the poor. Ensure that your child understands that two important aspects of being Muslim are performed when a baby is born; faith in Allah and being generous and kind.

If you want to you might like to draw something that is commonly done in each culture to help you remember or you may just simply want to talk about what you have found out today. What is similar? What is different?
