Hi Otters,

Wow the last full week of home learning before the summer break. This week for year 1 your learning is taking you on a trip to France which sounds like fun doesn’t it?

We are winding down now in school and so I hope that you are going to do the same at home. You have all worked incredibly hard over the last few months and deserve a break and a HUGE pat on the back from me for doing so well.

Reading and Phonics Year 1 and EYFS

Remember to continue to use Oxford Reading Owl for more online books to read this week

Daily Phonic lessons from Letters and Sounds will support learning of new sounds which are needed to help with your child’s reading.   This is what I am using in school with those children who have returned. It would be great if you are able to follow this.


Year 1 Maths  this week you are going to learn your numbers to 10 in French then use them to fill in a colour by numbers sheet

Year 1 English learning some French greetings. There are many ways that you can use these flash cards; the guidance will give you a few ideas.

Geography On a map of Europe can you find France? I would like you to see if you can find out about French food. I know that you all know some already! Who likes baguettes, croissants or pain au chocolat? Who has tried Quiche Lorraine? See if you can find out some other French foods. Maybe you could ask mummy or daddy to buy something for you to try when they next go shopping.



For those of you who are following Oak National Academy or BBC Bitesize  here are the links to those:



Maths you will be practising doubling and halving, time and money.

English Continuing on with phonics I would like you to match Phase 3 sounds, segment (breakdown) words for spelling, reading and writing captions.




Understanding of the World (Geography) Can you also think of any French food and perhaps try some like year 1? You could have a go at some of the French greetings too and surprise some of your family!

I do hope that you have a good week with your learning.

Take care, see you all soon.

Mrs A-E
