Hi Murphys and Potters,


Another week of home learning has flown by and another one begins. This is the last one before the half term holidays and our potential return on 1st June! The great work has continued to flood in and we are so proud of the time and effort each and everyone of you has put in to every piece of work. Year 1, you are all superstars!

In this week’s pack we have included some new challenges to have a go at if you wish. These are trickier and will make you think very deeply about the answers. Remember it’s OK if your not sure on the answers, just do your best and show your resilience skills to keep trying.


This week we will be-

  • finding half of 2D shapes, finding half of amounts, doubling numbers and comparing the answers to double and halving problems.
  • learning about the stories of Jesus and what they can teach us.
  • reading a new story called ‘Six Blind Men and the Elephant’ and writing our own version of the story.
  • Practising the skills we have learned in our wider curriculum lessons in our retrieval practise. Friday has a special retrieval activity by Mrs Taylor.
  • Practising our phonics, we are working on the set 3 sounds. If you still need to practice some set 2 sounds that aren’t secure that is fine.
