Friday 12th February 2021

Hey year 1 Miss Ley here, Happy Friday! last day before the well deserved half term break :)

I hope everyone has enjoyed their week, you have all done some fantastic learning! Well done to you all! Here is the learning for the day, enjoy!




Can you count the dienes and match the number?

Main learning

Today we are going to add and subtract ‘ml’ and ‘l’. Read the question carefully and decide if it is add or take away. You can use a number line to help you.







Practise  rainbow writing your spellings then ask someone in your home to give you a spelling quiz. This week’s words all have the ‘oi’ sound.

Main learning:

How did you get on making your board game? We would love to see it. (Remember, you can email your class teacher using this address: Just put your class name and your name in the subject.)

Today you are going to write the instructions so that people will know how to play your game.

M. Silly forgot to say that the instructions must be in the right order! 

You could set your work out like this:


Art -Paper Dancing Dragons:

Today we are making paper dragons. You will need some paper, colouring pens or pencils, scissors and 2 sticks (lollipop sticks, chop sticks, wooden skewers etc.). If you have anything else you’d like to add for decoration, that would be great. I like using colourful feathers or glitter. 

step 1: draw the front and back of the dragon, colour and cut out.

step 2: fold a strip of paper (like a fan/pop up)

step 3: stick the strip (body) and front and back together.

step 4: add sticks.

Hey year 1! Miss Ley here, hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend. We have some exciting things planned this week, last week before the well deserved  half term break! You have all worked very hard!



Can you match the numbers to the correct words?


Main learning

Today you will be adding in the context of ml & L. Remember to write the correct quantity at the end of your sum.

Use a numberline to help you.




This weeks spellings:   




Main learning:

Are you feeling bossy? This week is all about bossy verbs! Our  learning question is can I identify bossy verbs and time connectives.

A verb is a ‘doing’ word and a bossy verb is an order or command to do something. They can be sharp and direct. For example, ‘Line up for assembly, or ‘Mix the flour and eggs together.’ 

Have a go at playing ‘Simon Says’ with someone in your home. It’s a game full of bossy verbs!

Have a look at the slide below, can you find and  write out all the bossy verbs? (Look carefully, they are not all verbs!)


Remember, time connectives are words like, ‘first’, ‘next’ and ‘lastly’.



Can you draw the objects that are made from the different materials that you have learned. label them with their properties. Here is a video to help you.
