COVID-19 – Home Learning


  • The website White Rose Maths has developed an online Home Learning Live hub - with a daily online lesson every day for Y1 (and all year groups). Each lesson has a clear teaching video, practice activity and answers to check your work. Remember to start with what you already know. Can you show how you got to your answer?

  • Use your Abacus logins to practise all of the maths we have covered this year so far.

  • Keep up your Maths Fluency training on the Numbots website/app.

  • 15-20 minutes daily practice here can make a MASSIVE difference to future progress in maths. You won't regret it!




We are focusing on the Phase 3 and 5 sounds. Please use these helpful links to revise the sounds with your child/children daily, if possible


The Oxford Owl  free eBook library has been helping children develop their reading skills at home for years. For a limited period, while the UK schools are closed, they are temporarily adding hundreds more eBooks to the library so your child has more to read.

As well as much-loved characters such as Biff, Chip and Kipper and Winnie the Witch, you’ll also find some great non-fiction eBooks to help your child explore their world. They have also added some books used in schools, such as Oxford Reading Tree, and Project X Alien Adventures. You can browse by book band so that your child is reading books at the right level for them.

All the eBooks are free to use, but you will need to register or log in to read your book. Please note, the eBooks are not optimised for mobile phones and are best viewed on a computer, laptop, or tablet.

  • A child in Y1 should be reading for 20 to 30 minutes every day - which can be split into shorter sessions of course. Read exciting chapter books! Use you BugClub logins to access a full range of writing types. Read alone, read aloud, talk and write about what you are reading, form opinions, make predictions and write reviews!

Here are some of Mrs Brown's all-time favourites for Y1 readers; read them and tell me what you think!

  • Gobbolino the Witch's Cat by Ursula Moray Williams
  • My Naughty Little Sister by Dorothy Edwards, illustrated by Shirley Hughes
  • The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton
  • The Twits by Roald Dahl
  • The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy
  • Winnie-the-Pooh by A A Milne
  • A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond
  • The Wombles by Elisabeth Beresford


  • The brilliant, award winning spelling and grammar app/website 'Sir Linkalot' is free for the next 3 months (using the username and login FREE.) It uses clever tricks, links and patterns to teach spelling through short smart videos. Watch, practice on paper, complete the tests and really build your confidence with spelling.


You can find inspiration on the Literacy Shed website which has exciting video clips to inspire story writing.

I really look forward to reading some of your stories.Perhaps you could become an author and illustrator and make your own book?




BBC Bitesize Daily

Starting today, BBC Bitesize have produced programmes for homeschooling in Maths and English for every year group, as well as regular lessons in Science, History, Geography and more.


Science Fun At Home:

The Primary Science Teaching Trust is working with Science Sparks to create activities for children to have some fun with science at home.

Each two page sheet has activities that are:

  • clear and simple, using household resources
  • accessible and manageable for all
  • fun for children and their families to do
  • linked to follow up activities

They will send out a new Science Fun at Home every Wednesday. You can also receive these activities direct to your inbox by signing up to their mailing list. 

  • Sheffield's own artist Pete McKee is uploading some great, weekly drawing cartoon lesson tutorials through his YouTube channel. Have a look!

  • Chris Packham - Badger poo, wood anemones & whatever develops . . . videos from the New Forest.

  • Mylene Klass music

  • PE with Joe Wicks

  • This website from the Scouts is full of fun, cross curricular learning challenges to complete at home.

  • Simple, easy and fun craft ideas to try.


If you need help with logins, need extra resources, any extra help or just to send me some brilliant work, contact me directly through

Take care, stay safe and keep smiling.
