Good morning Year One,

For our literacy this week we are working through a new 'Talk4writing' pack called Brian Bear's Picnic by Alison Cooper. 

I hope you have all now read the story on the first few pages.  If not, read it today.  Then work through two new pages of activities.   We will continue to work through these each day of the week. 

Click on the link below to go straight to the activity pack. 


You also know that we are currently celebrating LONDON VIRTUAL MATHS WEEK.

There are several things we are taking part in.  Please remember to complete your SUMDOG Challenge (1000 questions)

Today is the last day you can do this. 


Here is another interesting project for the London Maths week.  

Venn diagrams in nature

Collect lots of natural objects together when out for daily exercise or in your garden. How could you put them into categories?

An easy way to start is to think about opposites; flowers vs leaves, long sticks vs short ones.

Can you put your natural objects into venn diagrams like the ones in the attached picture?

Whatever features you choose, there must be some objects that have BOTH and can go in the middle!

You can have a look at Page 2 of this document:

This week we are  listening to the audio story - Zero G by Dan Wells

Click on the link below to continue listening.  Try to listen to 2 chapters each day.   

Then you can discuss them and retell the story so far to someone else in your family.




Today, we will be learning about the 5 oceans on our earth and the location of them in relation to the 7 continents.

We will be looking at which continents surround the oceans.

We will then compare the difference between an ocean and a sea.

In this lesson you will need a pencil, a piece of paper or an exercise book and your wonderful brain. Let’s get started!






Have you recorded a clip of you singing for our online choir project?  

If you haven't yet click on the link below to access the Music Blog and find out more about how to do it.  You can then send it to us on email on




I hope you all enjoy the work that has been set for you today.

Remember that you can always email me any questions at showing ‘Year 1’ in the title.

Have a good day!
