Well done everyone we have got to the end of the first week of the Summer Term. Hope you have been making the most of the amazing sunny weather. 


Revise words learned this week which us ch to make the /k/ sound. Rainbow write (trace over with different colours) You can practice spelling these words too.

Type in the Queen's Knickers into google- videos. Choose a version to listen to. Talk to your child about the story setting, beginning, middle and end, characters and whether or not they enjoyed the story. 




The initial problems with logging onto Education City have hopefully been resolved. The children have now got their own log in. Go to Subjects - Mathematics - KS1 Year 1 - Activities. When you click on a particular activity go to Students - Newstead and find your child's name.

You might like to go on Pitcher Framed to revise Capacity and Counting in Stens to count in 10's to 100.

Week 2 - Lesson 4 - Add equal groups


Flashback 4

Listen to the lesson, then do the activity.

Can you make equal groups using objects from around your house? 

How many are there altogether? Can you find a quick way of working out how many? 




In Science we have been finding out about plants. Go for a walk around your garden, how many garden plants can you spot? Can you name any of them? You may need the help of an adult. Or you can google plants on Google images and select a picture to draw. 

Look at the different shapes and sizes of the leaves and petals.

Choose one plant in your garden to draw. You might want to take a photo so you can draw your plant inside or make the most of the sunny weather and enjoy drawing outside. 

Take your time to look at the shape of the leaves, the length of the stem, the shape and colour of the petals. Are the petals all the same colour or do they have different coloured patterns? Try to copy your plant as carefully as you can and then colour it in. You might like to draw more than one plant.

Google -Phonics digraphs phase three phonics Epic phonics and watch short video on you tube to recap previously taught grapheme/phonemes Then turn the sound off and ask your child to say the sounds. 


Recap words you looked at in the videos on Monday and Tuesday. Can you take it in turns to make up verbal sentences. Write a selection of these words on pieces of paper. Stick the up around the garden or house for your child to find, blend to read and put into sentences. 


Over the next couple of days we would like you to create a fact page all About our Queen. Use your research to write sentences and draw pictures. What can you teach us about the Queen? Can you add headings to your fact page? I have attached a link which gives you some ideas. 


 So sorry if you had issues getting onto Education City. It should have been possible to access the activities by clicking on Subjects and then Mathematics then KS1 Year1 Activities without needing a login and password as we are not tracking the children's progress. This was just an extra resource to reinforce learning.
