The National Curriculum (KS1)

Due to the coronavirus outbreak we are currently preparing some resources for children to use at home if they are not able to attend school.


Please see below links to websites containing interactive learning games.




This term in maths we are learning to count, order and write numbers to 50. We are partitioning numbers into tens and ones. We are also learning to count in 2s and 5s. Activities at home could include: practicing number formation, spotting numbers around the house, using the hundred square below to count forwards and backwards in 1s, 2s and 5s. 


We have also been using mathematical language to describe the length, height and weight of an object. The best way to encourage mathematical language is for children to practically measuring and weighing activities. This could include baking a cake, comparing the height of our siblings and measuring objects using a ruler or tape measure.



Our main focus in literacy is ensuring children continue to develop their reading and writing skills. Daily reading with your child is the best way to develop reading skills. This could be sharing a picture book together or your child reading their reading books from school. The oxford owl, (link below) allows you to access a wide range of e-books to share with your child.


Our writing this term has focused on writing facts about animals and creating information books containing 'wow' words. Using information books and child friendly search engines children could research and write about their favourite animals. Always encourage your child to use capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, neat handwriting and phonetically plausible attempts at spelling words.

Phonics Digraphs Phase 3 Phonics

Revise your Phase 3 sounds with this phonics digraphs and trigraphs video covering the qu, sh, ch, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, ow, or, oi, ur, ear, air, er ...



This term we have been learning all about animals. We have learnt how animals can be grouped into mammals, birds, reptiles, insects, amphibians and fish. We have began to label animal body parts and looked at different animals diets.


At home children can use the learning pack provided to find out more about different animals. If possible, library visits will give the children an opportunity to use information books to find out more about animals.
