Good morning Year one!  We hope you're all staying well.  Even though we're all staying indoors, hasn't it been lovely to see some blue sky and sunshine?


Rewatch the episode of Dip Dap going on his camping trip.

Draw a text map of his adventures


Today you are going to practise counting forwards.



Good morning to our lovely little gems! We are missing you lots and hope you are getting on well.

Please continue to read regularly on Bug Club and play number games on Numbots.

Here are your tasks for today:


Use your text map to start your story. 

Remember - capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

Challenge: use adverbs like slowly, carefully or quietly to show how Dip Dap does something.

You could start it like this: One evening Dip Dap decided to go camping. He carefully pitched his tent below a big green tree.


Today you will be counting backwards! First practise by singing and exercising with Jack Hartmann and then complete the work in the image gallery.



Happy Thursday everyone! We hope you are staying busy at home. Yesterday Miss Wilkins spent part of the day clearing out her messy yard with her children - it was hard work! Miss Mahmoud was also in her garden. She got very dirty and even had mud in her hair!

Here are some fun learning activities for today.

Finish your Dip Dap story, remember to use all the things in our writing toolkit.
If you have finished this story, have a go at drawing and writing your own DipDap Story! See the image gallery for some ideas.


Watch this clip - Make sure you dance along - We know how much you love a freestyle dance! Then have a go at the sheet in the image gallery. You could also write the questions as number sentences in your maths book.
eg. 4+1= 8+1=



Well done everyone, we have got to the end of the first week at home! We are missing you very much but are proud of the hard work you have been putting into your challenges.  Make sure you have a restful weekend.

You are going to find one less of a number today. Use the number square in your maths book to help you.
