Year 1 - Oakwood

Please be assured that our daily updates are simply a suggestion and we do not want you to worry about whether everything is completed every day. We want the resources and ideas to be helpful and not a hindrance. The work can be completed at any time. Additionally, if your child finds any of the learning from home tasks too challenging, please feel free to take a look at another class page. At this unusual time, our main priority is that our children and families are happy and healthy.

Learning From Home

Our aim, during this difficult time is to keep children at MPL thinking hard, gaining knowledge and honing their skills. It is important to help them maintain a routine and retain positive mental and physical health. We must strive to provide a consistent, positive point of contact in what will be a very unsettling time for many children. Please check this page daily for new learning from home activities.

Year 1 children have not been using times tables Rock stars but instead could do daily practice of counting to and back from 100, or practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to 100.

KS1 Writing

For English tasks that are set for children to do at home please check this list to support your child with their learning. These are the key areas we have been working on this year.

Not every piece of writing will need them all.

In KS1 we use a green pen to represent capital letters and a red pen for full stops. Please feel free to continue this at home.

Year 1

Year 2

  • Capital letters
  • Full stops
  • Clear finger spaces
  • Correct letter sizes
  • Use of ‘and’ to extend sentences.

 

  • Everything on the Year 1 list
  • Question and exclamation marks used correctly.
  • Common exception words spelt correctly.
  • Use of some conjunctions such as because, so, or and if.
  • Some letter joining.
Below are some useful links to websites you could use to support your children with their learning.
