Year 1

Welcome to the Year 1 home learning page!

While our school is closed, this is where you can find activities which will allow you to continue learning at home!

Your child has been given a pencil and exercise book where they can complete this work. If they have been off school this week, please feel free to use any notebook or paper you have at home. Alternatively, you can pick up an exercise book and pencil from the school office. 

Children love routine and we have tried to keep our resources as close as possible to what we do in school. We have heard how much the children are looking forward to school with Mummy and Daddy - please feel free to break out the pink pens and stickers for some marking and feedback! (your child will love it!)

Please see our suggested timetable below. This reflects the structure the children are used to and offers what we feel is a balance between continued learning and blowing off steam.

We hope you are all staying safe and well and we look forward too seeing you again soon. 

Take care,

The Year 1 team.

It's lovely to see so many children reading on the Oxford Reading Buddy! If you want to move through the levels, make sure you complete the quizzes at the end. This sends your teacher a notification and lets them know you're ready to move up!

Guide for parents

Reading at home with your children



In order to support you with maths learning at home, we have created accounts for Numbots, a wonderful interactive games site where your child can practise and develop their maths skills.

The site is similar to Times Tables Rockstars, which you may be familiar with if you have older children, but focused on addition and subtraction.

Please see the guide for parents for login details

Numbots Guide For Parents

Numbots Site

 We have had a couple of enquiries regarding incorrect log in details. If you are having trouble logging in to your child's Numbots account, please try typing their username followed by 1 e.g. rebske1. The password will then still be the same (either wil, wal or hol depending on your child's class). If you are still experiencing difficulties, please send an email to and one of the Year 1 team will take a look at your child's account.
