Year 1 Homework

16 October 2020

Posted on Friday 16 October 2020 by Mrs Taylor

The homework, this week, is creative and is due on Thursday 22 October.

Our Living and Learning statement this week has been…

This forms part of current Living and Learning lessons about mental health and how we feel. Self care is about the things we can do to look after our own mental health.

For homework, we would like the children to play wellbeing bingo and try out some of the ideas below.

The children can choose how to present this.

  • Maybe a photo or picture of them trying a favourite technique.
  • Could they ask a family member which one they enjoy to do.
  • A sentence to explain the ideas that work for them and how they make them feel.
  • Pick their top five ideas and put them in order (using ordinal numbers from our maths learning – 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th)

As we are currently not returning homework to school, please send this by email ( and

This week, the homework is Talk Time and should be completed by Thursday 08 October.

Are animals happy in zoos?

This is a moral question, based around our science learning about living things. which we’d like you to discuss at home with your child. During the discussion with your child, it’s important to appreciate that there may be two opposing views and that although it’s okay to disagree we should respect the opposing view.

Top Tips:

  • Turn the telly off!
  • Sit around the dining table!
  • Have a chat and share opinions and ideas!
  • Children should talk with family, friends and each other –maybe even using FaceTime or Skype.

There is no need to record anything in your child’s homework book from your discussions at home. The children will be able to share their views when we review the homework at the end of the week.

The homework this week is Creative and is due on Thursday 01 October.

What is Autumn?

This week, our fluency text in class was the poem, Autumn is here. For homework, we would like the children to show what are the signs of Autumn.

Creative homework allows the children to choose how they want to present this. It could be:

  • Photos from a walk to show signs of autumn
  • A painting of an autumn scene
  • Artwork using a collection of autumnal natural objects
  • Counting using some leaves, conkers or acorns
  • Some sentences and pictures about an aspect of autumn (eg conkers, harvest, hedgehogs)
  • Cooking using some autumn ingredients (eg blackberries, apples)
  • Adding another verse to the poem, Autumn is here

Be as creative as you like!

The homework this week is Practice Makes Perfect and due on Thursday 24 September.

I can write a sentence.

We’d like to know a little bit more about the children and what their interests are outside of school. If possible, it would be great if the children could tell us this in a sentence. They could also add other detail such as pictures or photos.

Don’t forget to check the following when writing a sentence.

  • Capital letter at the start
  • Full stop at the end
  • Finger spaces
  • Does it make sense?

Our handwriting guide shows the correct letter formation to support this writing. This can be found inside your child’s homework book.

As we are currently not returning homework to school, please send this to us by email ( and

Thank you for your support.

The homework this week is Practice Makes Perfect and should be completed by Thursday 17 September.

I can learn a rhyme by heart.

As we begin our learning in Year 1 with the whole school topic of After the Fall, we’d like the children to learn the nursery rhyme associated with the book, Humpty Dumpty. We’d love to see some videos of the children reading/singing the rhyme ( and

The children can listen to the rhyme here.

On Friday, the children will be bringing home their homework book. Please do have a look inside this book as there is some useful information including our homework guide.

Taken from the Autumn for All document, here’s some information about how homework is a bit different at the start of this year.

We’re setting weekly homework as we normally do. The key difference here is that Homework Books should stay at home for the time being.
Just as normal, the tasks are posted on the website. Instead of the task pasted into books, children take home a piece of paper with the task on, too. The tasks are a variety of Talk Time, Practice Makes Perfect and Creative, but especially the first two.
Parents can email a picture or update about a completed task (just as many have been doing with the home learning tasks we set in Spring and Summer terms). The homework will be reviewed in school, so some pictures would be good!

Hi Year One!

We’ve reached the mid point in the week! So impressed that you’re continuing to work hard right until the end.

Here are your tasks for today:


As you know, Miss Needham is going to be joining  our class next year. As she doesn’t know many of you that well, I would like you to write her a letter (or email) telling her facts about yourself.

You can take a picture of it, sent it to me and I can print it off for her. Or you can post it to school.

Have a go at this really cool Science lesson about forces.

I love it because it links science and one of my favourite sports.
