Good morning 1D it looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day β˜€οΈ

Tonight before you go to bed, let’s all go outside and look into the night sky together....  If you do you will see the biggest supermoon of the year the ‘Super Pink Moon’.  The moon won’t actually be pink, it gets its name because the April full moon often corresponds to the blooming of spring flowers.  The moon will look both bigger and brighter in the night sky because this is when the full moon closest to the earth πŸŒ‘ Have fun my space scientists!

Good morning 1D 😊


It’s the start of our Easter holidays let’s have some fun! Here are some learning challenges and activities you may like to try 🌟


🐣 Make an Easter acrostic poem.  First think about all your favourite things at Easter time and write down lots of words to help you (bunny, family, egg, chocolate, hunt, etc).  Now let’s write an acrostic poem! Write down the word in CAPITAL LETTERS vertically down the page.









Finally, use your list of words to help you write a sentence for each line beginning with the letter in our word Easter.  Don’t worry if you can’t think of them in order, it’s fine to go back and add any missing lines afterwards.  


🐣 Decorate a hard boil egg, what can you create? Think about making a perfect pattern or can you make it into an animal or story character? 🎨 


🐣Create and make Easter cards for your family and friends.  You can do this using paper and materials around the house or on the computer.  Can you post your card or email your card to wish your family and friends a very Happy Easter 🐰 


🐣Have an egg rolling race with your families.  Use your time words to describe the race (quicker, slower, earlier, later) and your ordinal numbers to give everyone their race positions (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc).


🐣I have loved seeing your baking adventures 1D! Keep baking! πŸ‘©‍🍳 🌟


🐣Create an ‘Active Easter Egg Hunt’.  Draw and cut out Easter eggs that you write active challenges on, for example:

Touch your toes 4 times.

Hop on the spot.

Run on the spot.

Hide these around the house and outside for you and your family to find, each time you find one, read the active challenge and take part πŸ’ͺ



Have fun 1D and please email me at year1@torrisholme.lancs.sch.uk I love hearing about your wonderful adventures 🌈 x

  πŸŒˆ Happy Birthday Nellie! πŸŽ‚ We hope you have a magical day xxx


Good Morning 1D 😊

Today I would like to challenge you to have fun with phonics!


First you need to cut little squares of paper and carefully write each of our phase 3 & 5 graphemes (a grapheme is a letter or a number of letters that represent a sound).  Please remember to draw a writing line and form each letter with care, using your best handwriting πŸ–Š.  These are going to be your home learning phonic flash cards, just like the cards we use in class 🌟


Phase 3: qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er

Phase 5: ay, ou, ie, ea, or, ir, use, wh, ph, ew, oe, au, (our split digraphs also contains two letters but they are split between a consonant, for example; make, bike and pure) a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e, u-e 


Say each sound as you place your phonic flash card into a hat.  Play ‘pass the hat’, play your favourite song and when the music stops the family member holding the hat must stop and pull out a flash card and say the sound!  Have fun 1D and keep your flash cards very safe we will use these for lots of fun activities in the next few days 🌟Have a wonderful day 🌈😊


If you would like to hear the pronunciation of each sound, please copy and paste this link

Good Morning 1D! Let’s make the most of another sunny day and take our learning outdoors!


Today we are going to be Marvellous Mathematicians! Using our skills we learnt in PE I would like you to roll and/or underarm throw a ball with a family member counting in your multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s.  If someone drops the ball you have to start back at the beginning.  How far can you count in your 2s, 5s, 10s?  If you don’t have a ball can you find another object in the house or outdoors you can use? (like a balloon, orange, etc) Please share your photographs and videos with me at year1@torrisholme.lancs.sch.uk, happy Friday!


At the weekend I would like everyone to remember our class positive affirmation ‘We are Kind’ this weekend can you help you grown ups with some jobs? Cleaning, hoovering, dusting, planting, tidy your bedroom and put your toys and book away? Can you write an email, text message or a letter to a family member you have not seen this week?
