Year 1 - Owls and Squirrels -
Welcome to the Year 1 home learning page.
We know this is a difficult time for everyone and that the children might have lots of questions and worries. They might be missing their friends and the familiar structure of school and might be struggling with working at home in a different environment.
Please don't worry about replicating a normal school day at home, but do what works for your family. We will be sending tasks home that are enjoyable for the children to do and we will also be sending a weekly document with activities you could pick and choose from. So much learning can take place from activities such as crafts, baking, active learning and enjoying stories.
We love seeing the work you complete on Purple Mash and photographs you upload of activities you are participating in at home.
Please also look at the Wellbeing section of our school website. There are ideas of how to look after your own and your child's wellbeing. There are social stories to help children understand why life is different at the moment. The stories allow children to talk about their thoughts and feelings and express any concerns or worries.
Exercise is an important part of looking after our mental wellbeing and you could use:
- Joe Wicks daily workout
- Real PE (password on home learning page)
- Cosmic Yoga
- Go Noodle
We have sent learning packs out for you to work through and there are some other links and activities you may want to use below. Have fun and enjoy yourselves.
Love Mrs Mace and Miss Shaw

The Great Bug Hunt 2020
Due to the closure of schools, we have opened up this competition to all primary school children (and their parents!)
Our challenge is pretty simple – take your children into the garden or any outside space you own and see what bugs they can find!
Simply point them at the nearest hedges, flower beds, trees, long grass, logs, stones, rocks (well, you get the picture)... let them explore and then report back to us what they have found.
Please be sure, however, to follow government advice and do not leave your property. To do this, stay 2 metres away from people not in your household and do not put yourself or others at risk.
Make it into a project – if they find a spider or woodlouse, find out all about it. Draw it, examine it (carefully!), what does it eat, where does it live – maybe even write a story or poem about it, design a poster, shoot a video and then email it over to us by the 12th June to email@example.com (use mailbigfile free to send large files).

On The James Dyson Foundation website, there are challenge cards available with exciting experiments for you to try at home. There are videos available for you to watch of many of the finished products and there are explanations of how all the science behind the experiments work.
