To Master Home School, Keep It Fun and Focus on the Basics - BloombergRobin

I hope your home schooling is going well and you found the online lessons with Miss Brown and Mr Latham helpful last week.

Please find below the Year 1 English and Maths activities for this week. Friday is a bank holiday so no home school on this day!

Well done to all the adults helping you. I know you are balancing other work with this home learning so do what you can and don’t forget to cut yourself some slack!

Friday Bank Holiday

Use your home school sharing book, exercise book or notebook to record your answers. Ask an adult to help you ‘tick or fix’ your work when you have finished.


We will continue our learning on measuring, looking at mass with Mrs Bramble and Miss Judge. The online video lessons can be found at:

Each day starts and ends with a quiz to check your understanding. You will be asked to pause the videos at different points to complete activities.

Day Learning Focus
Monday To compare the mass of two objects. (Lesson 6)
Tuesday To compare the mass of more than two objects. (Lesson 7)
Wednesday To find the mass of objects using non-standard units. (Lesson 8)
Thursday To find the mass of objects in units. (Lesson 9)
Friday Bank Holiday

For some of the lessons you will need some household objects or toys to help you measure mass.

You may want to make a simple balance scale with an adult to help your understanding, but this is NOT necessary. There are lots of ideas online on how to do this, one example can be found at:-

Use your home school sharing book, exercise book or notebook to record your answers when prompted to do so. Adults may need to help create tables to put your answers in and to ‘tick or fix’ your work.

Thematic Learning

On the school website you will find a range of family friendly thematic learning opportunities based around ‘Celebrations including VE Day’. Pick and choose from these activities for your other learning challenges this week.

Keep going with your home learning and enjoy a rest on Friday.

Hope to see you soon!
