Year 1 COVID Absence Home Learning

Hello Year 1,

WELL DONE to all our Home Learners for their determination, hard work and resilience with adapting to our new way of learning from home.  We are so proud of you! Thank you so much parents and carers for your patience and support with this too, it is so appreciated.

Please email your work to us at y1support@barley-hill.oxon.sch.uk so we can see how you are getting on with your learning.

Please note that every week day morning at 9am, we will be leading a live teaching lesson. Please log into this using your TEAMS login details that have been emailed to you via the Year 1 support page. We include a timetable above to show you which lessons will be taught on which day in the live session and suggested lessons for your child over the course of the week.

Live lessons for Phonics and Maths will mirror the PowerPoint or Word document planning for these subjects attached  below, so please do not complete lessons on the PowerPoint before live lessons, as your child would then be repeating the learning.

We fully appreciate that many of you are trying to juggle your own work and other commitments and teach your children all at the same time. We know how stressful this can be and that you will need to fit learning around your own timetables in a way that works for you. Ideally, Yr 1 children should to try complete 3 hours home learning per day. Prioritise the Maths, Phonics and English lessons/activities daily. Please also attend the 1 hour daily online lessons as much as possible and then you could vary the rest of your day with either Topic, Science, ICT, Art or PE. 

Reading is still the number one activity to do at home that can help with your child's overall education. Ten minutes daily reading to an adult can help maintain your child's reading skills. To support reading at home, we have included links to reading sites below and an information letter to support you with home reading.

During lockdown, it is a really good time for the children to practise their cursive handwriting and try to get their letters sitting nicely on the line and be a consistent size. On YouTube if you type ‘mr teach cursive’ there are some simple clips to follow For the week beginning 18th January, please focus on the letters

c, o, a and d. All of these letters start in the same place and are formed in similar ways

Computing/ ICT

The children have been set two pieces of Purple Mash homework this week.The first activity is called ‘The Wrong Sandwich’. The children need to look at the instruction and see why the sandwich has been made incorrectly and then correct the instructions to complete it correctly.

The second activity is called ‘Crispy Cakes Recipe Sequence’. The children need to create the algorithm (set of instructions) to make these cakes. You may, if you have the ingredients, want to physically make these to make the experience even more special. Mmm!

Additionally, the children have been set two activities to complete on Mathletics, both of which consolidate their learning of 2D shapes.


Here is an online video showing you how to draw The Big Bad Wolf. Enjoy!



Below are links to some PE activities you can try at home: switch off those screens for a bit and get active!

PE with Joe Wicks is back on you tube. Search 'PE with Joe" on Youtube and the links to his live lessons will pop up.
