Home learning for Year 1 - Sparrows

Week Beginning 22nd 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.

Learning Journey

For our Learning Journey this week we will be looking at some 'through the window' art. Next week we will be making our own superhero art based on the book 'Window' by Jeannie Baker. However, this week we will be studying the pictures and saying what we like/ could improve about it.

Look through the book (in full screen) here https://www.slideshare.net/MrsJuteau/windows-2992791

Other Learning

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.


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!
