Year 1 Home Learning Activities

Year 1 General Home Learning Activities

It is important that we all try and keep to a routine whilst we are away from school. Kelly and Badgie have put together a suggested daily timetable for the Year 1 children.

You can view the activities over here.
Our first maths home learning will look at weight and mass. We have some short videos for you to watch over here.

Our work will look at comparing weights, as well as capacity and volume.

The first activity over here looks at which items are the heaviest, and which are the lightest.

We are now going to measure mass over here.

Our next task involves comparing mass over here. Think about using the words heavier and lighter.

Now we will look at capacity and volume. Our task involves thinking about which containers are empty, and which are full. You can find the worksheet over here.

Our final activity for this topic will help us to measure capacity. You can find the worksheet over here.
Our music teacher Noura has recorded a special music video for Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children.

Our lessons this term have included the song There's a Little Wheel a Turning. Noura has kindly recorded a video that we can all watch and join in with at home.

It includes different actions for the children to take part in. We should all be note perfect when we return to school.

Thank you Noura!

If you feel inspired to create some artwork at home then why not design some posters showing that you support our wonderful NHS staff?

Many children throughout the country are creating rainbow posters and placing them in their windows. The idea is help key workers be happy on their way to work each morning.

Think about adding a rainbow to your design. This is a symbol that many children are using to show that they support the brave NHS staff who work in our hospitals.

We would love to share any of your posters on the Michael Faraday School website! You can scan in your poster, or take a photo of it with a phone, and then upload using the box below.
