Today we are learning to identify a noun which  is a word that is the name of something (such as a person, animal, place, thing, quality, idea, or action). Choose a room at home and play a game of I spy with my little eye......

Follow this link to watch a video about nouns;


Then choose one of the scenes at the end of this English section and write a list of as many nouns that you can see in the scene.



Today we are learning about how to change a noun from singular to plural by adding s or es eg. box becomes boxes/star becomes stars/hat becomes hats.

Recap on yesterday's learning with a quick game of I spy from a scene.... but what happens to the word if there are more than one? I spy with my little etc

Using  the pictures below draw a picture of more than one of the objects and write the word in it's plural by adding either s or es.



We are thinking about verbs today which is a word used to describe an action, state or occurrence. Verbs can be used to describe an action, that’s doing something. Follow this link and watch a video about it


We are going to practise adding ing and ed to a verb. Below you will find some flashcards, see if you can write the word and add the correct ending either ing or ed. For eg; jump, jumping, jumped/hop, hopping, hopped.



Today we are going to continue to practise what we were learning yesterday and challenge ourselves to write a sentence using our words from the flashcards.

For eg; I am jumping over the puddle. 

            This morning I jumped in a puddle.


Handwriting Practise -look at the cursive sheet on our year 1 page and see if you can write your name in cursive then write the number names for zero, one, two three and four in cursive.






Activity 1

Today the children will be investigating number bonds to 20. Use two ten frames which can be found in the resources section or draw your own. Make 20 counters by drawing round a 10p coin and cut them out. Colour one side red and the other side blue.

Using a large piece of paper, write the number 20 in the middle. Place all 20 counters blue side up and write the number sentence to match. For example: 20 + 0 = 20. Now turn a counter/s over so that you have 19 blue and 1 red. Write the number sentence 19 + 1 = 20. Repeat until all counters are red.


Activity 2

Write on a piece of paper, all the number bonds to 20 in order using the ten frames by turning over one counter at a time. This is called working systematically. What do you notice about the numbers? Can you see a pattern?


Activity 3

Solve the number sentences that can be found in the Resources Section. Ensure that numbers are the correct way round.


Activity 4

Play the number bond game which can be found copying and pasting this link.


Have a go and solving number bonds to 10 and 20. You can also try the addition within 20.

INTRODUCTION: Christians believe that, because he is God's son, Jesus is always with them. Whatever the problem, they believe that they can ask him for help. This story from the Bible tells of when Jesus went to a party after a wedding, when suddenly, everything goes wrong. The family were poor, and they ran out of wine …

STORY: Look at the story of Jesus turning water into wine. John 2:1-11.
