Monday 13th July 2020

Hello Year 1! Hope you had a lovely weekend in the sunshine! What did you get up to? I spent the whole weekend busy helping to paint the new fence, keeping Alice and Bobby happy and I made some rock cakes too. As you know this is our last week of home learning before the summer holidays and it will only be a four day week too!

Here is your home learning for today:

  1. Maths Task 1 - please complete up to 30 minutes on Mathletics I have set all of the Year 1 tasks now so today I would like you to explore the live Mathletics function. This allows you to play against other children from your class or even someone who is in another country! All you need to do is click on the green play button at the top of the screen and see who is waiting to go head to head with you!! Good luck!

2. Maths Task 2- We are continuing with our White Rose maths week 8. All the attachments you will need for the week will be attached at the bottom of the page for you to access.

**Remember to watch the video first then download the activity sheet from the bottom of this page, then check your answers as usual from the answer sheet at the bottom of this page.**

3. English Task 1 – Please complete 15 minute practise on Spelling Frame

4. English Task 2 Learning Objective: To create a game.

Success Criteria:

  • Follow game suggestions.


Today I would like you to pick up a book and open it at any page. Look where the book’s two pages meet in the middle. This is called the book’s ‘gutter’. Go to and listen to the reading of This Book Just Ate My Dog, written by Richard Byrne, where very strange things indeed happen in the book’s gutter!

Now you are going to play the ‘This Book Just Ate My Dog Race Game’, with a grown up, read the Instructions. Play the game several times.

Next you are now going to design and write your own race game. With a grown up, read the Suggestions. Design and write out your game. Challenge people in your family to have a go! I have attached the sheets for you to print if you need or you could just draw your own game borad onto paper.


Pick a book you like from your shelf at home and draw pictures of some of the characters or things in the story. Hide them inside the book, as if they have been ‘swallowed up’ by the gutter. Shake them out... gently!
