Homework Challenges 

Literacy Homework Challenge

We have been reading the story of Pinocchio in class.


Pinocchio is looking for new friends. Can you write a letter to Pinocchio and tell him all about yourself and how you would be a good friend for him to have. You could tell him about your favourite toys and what you like to do at weekends with your family.

You also might like to tell him about Year One and what he could look forward to when he goes to school !


Mathematics Homework Challenge

We will be looking at lots of different 2d and 3d shapes over the next few weeks. Can you go on a shape hunt around your house or outside and see how many different shapes you can find. Make a list of all the shapes you see or take some photographs and send them into school via e mail.

These are some of the shapes you might like to look for:







Rectangles or oblongs





Cubes ( 3d)


Cuboids ( 3d )











Science Homework challenge


Do you know the names of all the trees around you. Your science challenge this half term is to try and find as many different trees as you can either in your garden, in a park or go for a walk to the woods. Take some photographs or draw pictures of the leaf shapes and then see if you can find out the names of all the different trees you found. You may like to send this in with photographs or get someone at home to help you create a power point.



RE Homework Challenge

We are learning all about the Creation. We have listened to stories and looked at pictures of the wonderful world God created for us. Have a think about all the world God created and think of your own way to represent something beautiful that God created. It may be a drawing, a model, some photographs or some writing. You choose !



If you have a Bible at home, see if you can find the story of the creation ( hint: it is right at the start ).



Read, Read, Read!!



Please read every night with a grown up at home and ask them to sign your book.







'Phonics is a way of teaching children to learn to read quickly and skillfully.' DoE 2013. 


We are working hard to learn all our different phonic sounds. The children will be bringing home sound mats, words and games to support their learning in a fun way.


Please encourage the children to use these as often as possible.


We use 'alien words' each day to practise segmenting and blending sounds. These words are made up and really make us think about the sounds that we can see. 






In numeracy this half term we will be learning about number, place value, addition and subtraction and also developing our problem solving skills. 




Number pairs

Play the number bonds game by bursting bubbles that make pairs to 10 or 20. You have to be fast!



Mental Maths


Play 'Hit the Button' to answer questions as quickly as possible. Have fun!

This is the prayer we are learning to sing and sign in Year 1 as part of our reflection of the Angelus prayer. 

Now you can practise learning the words and actions at home!
