Welcome to the Year 1 BRW Home-School Learning Page
Summer Term – Half Term 2
Week Commencing: Monday 1st June
I hope that you have all had a wonderful week off and enjoyed the glorious weather! Hopefully the sunshine has helped your science project to grow.
Some children will return to school this week. For those of you who are not returning, here is your home learning for the week.
It is your final week of Year 1 and Home Learning! Well done for your hard work, commitment and determination through this difficult time.
This week, please finish off any pieces of work that you haven’t completed over the last few weeks. Make sure that all of your maths and English work is up to date.
English: Miss Cotter is really looking forward to meeting you in September. Write a letter to Miss Cotter telling her all about yourself. Include what you enjoy doing, who you like to play with and what your favourite subjects are at school. Write a draft first and then ask a grown up to check it before you write up your final version. You could either send it to school or ask your grown up to take a photo of your letter and email it to the office.

What will you discover about our local area?
I will post our weekly learning plan on our Home Learning Page at the beginning of each week. Please leave comments and updates on the blog about how your child is getting on – I love to hear from you. You can also send emails and photographs of any wonderful pieces of work to the office at email@example.com. Please use Mrs Cook as your subject and they will be passed on to me. You can also send any questions about the work set and I’ll respond as soon as I can.
Reminder: Friday 8th May is a bank holiday. There is no expectation to complete home learning on this day as school would normally be closed. Please have a day off, rest and have lots of fun.

We will be following the Home Learning activities set by White Rose Hub. The daily videos are now available BBC Bite Size Daily. You can access the link here. All answers can be recorded in your Home Learning exercise book or print off the pages and complete.
Please try to complete some of the following challenges every day:
- Read a book. This could be your reading book from school or a favourite book from your own collection. Reading books have also been set via the Rising Stars website. Please see the blog post on the Year 1 page for more details.
- Handwriting – Please practise your letter formation every day. In Year 1 we should be able to form most letters correctly by the end of the year. Ask an adult to help you to ensure that you are following our handwriting policy. See the handwriting families attached to your pack.
- Phonics – Use your phonics mats when sounding out new words. Ask your adult to give you a sound a day. Write as many words as you can that contain that sound or search through your books to find words with that sound in.
- Exercise – Exercise is so important for our well being, concentration and fitness. It is especially important during this challenging time. Try to get out in your garden for a run around and some physical exercise for at least 30 minutes per day. Alternatively there are lots of online PE sessions on You Tube. You could try a yoga session or a Joe Wicks PE session which will be live each day.
Remember…We are never far away. Please stay in touch. I will be thinking of you all and look forward to reuniting soon. Please stay healthy – wash your hands regularly and catch all of those coughs and sneezes.
Enjoy your home learning – 2020 really will be a year you will never forget. Work hard and always try your best.
See you all soon!
