I have attached this week’s home learning grid and all the attachments you will need. I will be making a few videos this week too so look out for them!

I am looking forward to hearing from you all and can’t wait to see all the work that you have been doing.

During the week you will get a phone call from either myself, Mrs Gearon or Mrs Garfen.

Don’t be shy! We just want to say hello because we miss you.

Dear Year 1,

Well done for working so hard over the past 2 weeks. I know it's been a challenge and a little bit strange but you all did so well. Now it is time to have a little break. I am also going to have a little break! So I will talk with you all again on Monday 20th April and look forward to hearing about your Pesach/Easter. Keep well.

From Miss Baker x

Below is a link that will direct you to a website which has over 250 online stories perfect for Year 1. All the stories are colour coded and should link to the colour bands used at school. Please email me if you want to check which colour band is best for your child. It is better to access this link on a laptop/ipad rather than a phone.

I understand that sometimes the 2Do's on Purple Mash can run slow. This may be because too many users are using it at the same time and this is out of my control. However, you can try Number Bots for Maths activities. Number Bots is run by the same company as Timestable Rockstars, so you can use the same log in. It is a bit more Year 1 friendly. Give it a go...

Hello Year 1,


I hope that you all had a lovely week and weekend.
Did you see the random snow on Sunday?

On the blog this week you will find the Week 2 Home Learning Grid and all the attachments you’ll need. During the week I will be posting a video to explain the capacity activity and one video which will be a phonics lesson. I hope these are useful and that they make you giggle.

As always, just do what you can and try your best.

Please e-mail me throughout the week if you want to show me any home learning you are proud of, or if you have any questions for me. I always look forward to hearing from you all.

Take Care,



Miss Baker

Dear Year 1,


I am so proud of all you have achieved so far this year. It is a great shame that we can't learn and have fun together as normal for a little while... but don't worry! You can contact me by email ( - I would love to hear from you and your adults about how you are getting on learning at home. I will also be sharing some videos here on the blog to help you with your home learning and (hopefully) make you giggle.


Finally, I have to say THANK YOU for the most amazing video that you made me. You put great, big smiles on mine and Michael's faces. smiley


Please stay safe and well,

Spring 2 home learning

16.3.20 - germ experiment. We got a bowl of water and put some pepper in it. We pretended that the pepper was the germs. It stuck to our fingers when our fingers were dirty. Then we cleaned our hands with soap and the germs moved away. We learnt that germs don't attract when hands are clean.

Oh yeah, I'll tell you something
I think you'll understand
After every activity
I wanna wash my hands!

I wanna wash my hands. I wanna wash my hands.

20 seconds, at a time and then I’m feeling fine
After lessons, meals or break time,
That’s when I sanitiseeee!

And when I wash my hands I feel happy... inside
I feel so healthy and I feel so alive, so alive, so aliveeee!

Oh yeah, I'll tell you something
I think you'll understand
After every activity
I always wash my hands

I wanna wash my hands. I wanna wash my hands.

Tu Bishvat

12.2.20 - PSHE - We put feeling cards around the room and then Miss Baker asked us questions such as "how do you feel when you eat sweets?" or "how do you feel in the dark?" We realised that our feelings change and our feelings aren't always the same as our friends.

11.2.20 - We have been reading the story Only One You, about a colourful rockfish who learns about being unique. Today we painted our own unique rock fish.

Happy Chinese New Year!!

Geography - we have been exploring globes, the 7 continents, the 4 countries of the UK, maps and capital cities!

29.1.20 - We know the 7 continents

Still image for this video


In writing this week, we have been reading and writing acrostic poems. We know that the first letter of each line spells out at word or message. We enjoyed writing acrostic poems about our names; families and animals! Some children even went to show their poems to Mrs Cohen.


In maths, we have started to understand place value. We have been using 'base 10' to help us place the tens and the ones in each number. 


In geography this week we have kicked off our new topic all about The UK (and the world). We have learned the 4 countries of the UK, their flags and their capital cities!! Next week we will look at the continents of the world and the seas...


We are learning this rhyme to help us remember our number bonds to 10!


10 and 0 – Superhero

9 and 1 – Let’s have some fun

8 and 2 – Chicken poo!

7 and 3 – Pat your knee

6 and 4 – Shut the door

5 and 5 – Bees from the beehive

4 and 6 – Pick up sticks

3 and 7 – Clotted cream from Devon

2 and 8 – Shut the gate

1 and 9 – Feeling fine

0 and 10 – Big fat hen


14.01.20 - Geography

Today in Geography we learned how to read a compass. We then made our own. We had lots of fun doing this. We learned an acronym to help us remember North East South and West - Never Eat Slimy Worms! We enjoyed making up new acronyms too.

13.01.20 - Doggy visit. We were so lucky to have Mrs Burger's doggy visit us. He was called Billy. We asked lots of questions about how to look after dogs and we can't wait to start writing a booklet all about dogs!

W/B 6th Jan - 

Happy New Year!
This week the children have been learning about how to use non-fiction books. We enjoyed going to the library to find lots of different non-fiction books. In maths we have been learning about height, weight, speed and length. Next week we will focus on days of the week and months of the year.

16.12.19 - Art Week. This week is art week. Year 1 have been learning about the artist Lowry. We have enjoyed recreating some of his artwork.

3.12.19 - Visit from Israeli Scouts.

2.12.19 - Today we learnt about Advent. We made Christingles to celebrate. The orange represents the world. The red ribbon represents G-ds love. The four cocktail sticks represent the four seasons and the candle represents light of the world!

26.11.19 - Maths - halving

25.11.19 - Goldilocks and the 3 bears role play

19.11.19 - our own Kandinsky artwork

15.11.19 - number bonds to 10

Still image for this video
We have been learning our number bonds to 10. This chant helps us to remember. Test your children at home to see if they can remember the numbers bonds to 10.

5.11.19 - We are reading Stanley's Stick this week - about a boy who uses his imagination to turn his stick into many exciting objects. Today we found our own sticks and made them into something very exciting and creative. Some of our sticks are magic wands, some are fishing rods and some are even musical instruments. We will use our sticks to help us write our own stick story!

23.10.19 - Antibullying week. We found 2 apples. We were very kind to one apple and said kind words. We bullied the other apple. We hit it and said unkind words. We found that the apple we were kind to was white and juicy inside but the apple we bullied was brown, sad and mushy. This made us think about how we feel on the inside when people are kind and unkind to us. Year 1 choose to always be kind to others.



The children have had a wonderful week learning about Succot. They loved working with their year 6 buddy to create the most amazing Sukkah's! We even had a special lunch in the school Sukkah where we could see all of our decorations that we made for it.


In English this week, we have read 'Malala's Magical Pencil'. We found it sad that Malala wasn't allowed to go to school which made us think how lucky we are. We enjoyed thinking about our own magical pencils and what we would draw if we had one. We may even make our own magical pencils soon!


We are continuing to learn new games to play in the playground and we are talking lots about how to be a kind friend in the playground too.


Next week is Anti-Bullying week! Please talk to your child about what 'bullying' is and how we can stop it from happening in school.

4.10.19 - We have been learning about Mary Seacole. Here is our story map to help us remember her story. Can your child teach you the story and the actions?



English - We have been learning about diversity and in particular about Mary Seacole. We enjoyed finding out facts about her and learning her story. 


Maths - We have continued to build on our knowledge of finding parts and whole. We are beginning to understand addition and some of us are challenging ourselves to find lots of different ways to make one number e.g. 3+3=6,  2+4=6, 6+0=6,  5+1=6. We have also been practicing our ruler skills. Please continue to practice this skill at home.


Art - We have have been learning the skill of sketching. We all followed instructions to sketch a family using different strokes of the pencil, then our year 6 buddies helped us to colour in. Some of the sketches were better than Miss Bakers!

27.09.19 - Exploring maths and number with Cuisenaire Rods

Today we drew round a child's body and labelled their body parts. Can you guess who we drew round?

Launch into a book with our new space station book corner!

Homework - Common exception words



This week in English we have continued to practise capital letters and full stops. The children have written some fantastic sentences. We have also been learning how to sit nicely and comfortably at a table and we use this chant to help us: '1,2, 3, 4 are my feet on the floor? 5,6,7,8 am I sitting nice and straight?


In Maths we have learnt how to find the 'parts' and 'whole'. The 'whole' is the whole number e.g. 7. The 'parts' are the two numbers that make up that number e.g. 3 and 4. We will continue to practise this next week.


During daily exercise we have been playing lots of new games. Our favourites are 'You're Fired!' and 'The Pirate Ship'.


The children's first week of home learning was great! We look forward to seeing next weeks!!

9th September 2019

English - This week we are going to learn about capital letters and how to form them correctly. We know that sentences start with a capital letter. Soon we will learn that names and places start with a capital letter also. 

Maths - We will learn how to subitise - this means seeing a number of items and knowing exactly how many there are without counting them!

Computing - We will learn how to log in and log out. We will also talk lots about keeping safe when we are online. 

Friendship - We are having lots of time to talk about what being a good friend means. We know that if we don't like something someone is doing we can say "Stop I don't like it".


Welcome to Year 1


4th September 2019


We have had a fabulous start to the year. 
English - We have written some class rules. We know that class rules keep us safe and happy. 

Maths - We have been counting and recognising numbers to 20. We also counted raisins and then we got to eat them!
