YEAR 1 - Yellow & Green Classes

This Half Term our Topic is...


Once Upon a Time

  • We have been reading lots of different traditional tales to find out about the structure, settings and characters of these stories.
  • We have re-told and re-written stories using story language.
  • We have looked at the homes in traditional stories and compared them to the homes we live in.
  • We would be going on to look at the materials homes are made from and why they are used.
  • We would be comparing homes now with homes in the past.
  • Children would be choosing materials to make bridges from the 3 Billy Goat's Gruff story and testing to see how strong they are.

Mrs Missett, Mrs Instrall & Mrs Banham will be adding new tasks every day to help you learn at home.

Remember to read every day - you can choose your RWI book, your library book or one of the reading scheme books you have. Read aloud to someone and then see if you can answer their questions about the book. You can do this with your own books too.

Reading is good for you.

It relaxes you, it takes you to exciting places, it teaches you new things and is fun.



This week we would have been introducing weight to the children as well as continuing to practice counting in 2s and 5s.

We will try to  provide a variety of activities that support this. We will try to use practical activities as much as possible in case families are unable to print things out. You could record work in homework books or any notebooks that you may have at home if you want to.


Today's maths  is....


Look at the picture and work out how to complete the sentences. You can talk about them or write them out.

This week we would have been looking at the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff and talking about how this story is similar or different to other traditional tales we have read. 


Today's Topic task is:

The Billy Goats Gruff wanted to cross the stone bridge. Why do you think the bridge was made from stone? Are there any other materials the bridge could have been made from? Why?


Challenge: Use materials around the house to build a bridge.
