Class 1 – Y2

22nd October        Maths Home Learning


This week at school we have been problem solving with measures. We have thought about weighing and capacity. Over the holidays have a look through your cupboards and read the weights on each item.  Can you order each item from the lightest to the heaviest?

It might be fun to estimate (guess) the weight of each item first.




Complete the activity as above but this time looking at the amount of liquid inside containers. E.g. How much liquid in a can of pop, a water bottle, etc. It would be lovely to see photos of you measuring. Please send and share to the class email address.                                  


Have a lovely holiday!

In Phonics this term we have been revising all the sounds we should have learnt in Year 1. 

We are so proud of the way the children have been trying their best in Phonics.  After half term the government has asked all schools to check that the children in Year 2 know all of these sounds by using the Year 1 Phonics screening.

You can help by supervising your child to play any of these Phase 5 games on the Phonics Play website. You can use a phone, tablet or PC to access these games.  Buried Treasure, Dragon’s Den and Picnic on Pluto do not require a log in. Remember to choose Phase 5. 


Until October 21st children are allowed to use the free login:

The log in will enable your child to use Reading Robot but you will need to listen to what your child says and judge whether it is phonetically accurate. Have fun and thank you for working with us to help your child.

This week we have been practising  our number bonds to 10 and 20. We will be practising this further next week so would love it if you could have a go at home.


Number bonds are parts of numbers that can be combined to make a certain number. E.g. 1+ 9 = 10, 2+ 8 = 10, etc.  If we know our bonds to 10 really well this can help us when solving other maths facts.

10’s Concentration game— Have the digits 0 – 10 face down on the table. On their turn, each player turns up two cards. If they add up to 10, they get to keep them and try again. If one of the cards is a 10, they'set to keep it and turn up another card. Whoever takes the most cards, wins.


Move on and play the above game with pairs to 20.



Hi Class 1 


We have had  an unusual few months but FINALLYYYYY we are all back in school and back to some sort of 'normal' routine. Despite all of the hand-washing and cleaning surfaces we had  a fab week last week, I loved seeing you all back in the classroom, you've all grown up so much.


We have lots of fantastic things to look forward to in Class 1 this term, our new topic is 'Turrets and Tiaras'.  In History we are going to be learning all about castles in England and finding out what it was like to live in a castle. I imagine it was a little spooky and dark, maybe lots of strange noises at night. What do you think it was like to live in a castle? We will also be learning lots of fun songs with a  castle theme, my favourite one is all about a spooky castle, with strange sounds.  In Science we are going to be widening our knowledge about plants and trees and learning all about animals and their habitats. We will also be continuing working hard on our maths work, learning all about place value and learning new strategies to add and subtract. As part of our Literacy learning we will be writing all about castles and the different parts of a castle, I'm excited to see all your lovely writing.


I'm just feeling so excited and exhausted thinking about all the wonderful things we will be doing. Come back soon to see photographs of all our fabulous work.
