Home learning for Year 1 - Sparrows

Week Beginning 8th June

Dear Sparrows Parents and Children,

At the bottom of the page I have included a 6 week Yoga course for the children to complete- enjoy!

As before, please complete a lesson of Maths and English each day and do the ‘frequently’ section a few times a week. Then you can do the Learning Journey and Science lesson when the mood is right across the week. I have also included an 'Other Learning' section, in case you wanted anything extra!

I hope you are all well, if you need to contact me for help/ a chat/ any form of support please feel free to do so via email- cp@harlandsprimary.org

Stay safe,

Miss Pooley.

In English this week we will be continuing looking at 'Juniper Jupiter' by Lizzie Stewart. As always, Monday-Wednesday will be English based and Thursday and Friday will be phonics based. Please follow the PowerPoint.


This week we are returning to PowerPoint for our maths lessons. Please follow the PowerPoint provided.


This week in Science we will be looking at common wild plants. Please go through the PowerPoint provided before completing the activities.

Learning Journey

For our Learning Journey this week we will be continuing our theme of 'real-life superheroes'. This week I am asking you to choose a 'real-life' superhero you know and write a thank you letter to them. This may be someone that works in the NHS, police, fire service, etc. I have included two writing templates for you to choose from (you don't have to use these). I have also included 'Thank you key workers' colouring, in case you wanted to find your chosen persons job and do a colouring for them to go with their letter.

Other Learning

New games cards added (What Am I?)

This section is optional. If you are looking for extra work or activities to do then you can choose any of the following files. There's some Maths consolidation tasks, English activities (not based on our core text) and some super hero themed bits too. If you happen to do any of this extra work then, as always, please send in pictures. I would love to see what you've been up to!


I have added 6 lessons of Yoga, if you wanted to give it a go. Each lesson comes with a PowerPoint presentation, lesson plan and resources. Enjoy!
