Week 7 Home Learning- Year 1

Y6 Home Learning | Springfield Primary Academy
Week 7 Home Learning

Quote of the Week
Vintage BFG Roald Dahl print - ‘If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely'

Good morning everyone,

We hope you all had a lovely weekend in the sunshine and are keeping safe!

We managed to speak to most families again last week and hear how you are all getting on.
We are sorry we couldn't give you more information about the governments announcement regarding Year One children coming back to school on 1st June. The school leaders are still in discussions with the local authority. Mr McLucas will share more information when he has it.

Please could you support the school by filling in the form below? It will ask you whether you will be sending your child back in June. If you select 'I will' but change your mind nearer the time (or visa versa), that is absolutely fine. It would really help the school to get a rough idea at this time.

Create your own watch to help you learn the time. We would like you to focus on half past and o'clock. If you want to push yourself, you can begin to look at quarter past and quarter to.

For those of you missing Forest School, you could create your own forest school on your daily walks.

Take some time to observe the bugs in your garden or on your walks. If possible, get up close and personal with a magnifying glass or a camera. Talk to your child about what colors they are, how they protect themselves (do they sting?), and how they work together to build a home (an ant hill is a great example of an insect colony.)

Final FS2 Phonics Workshop
Remember to watch the daily phonics sessions on the Ruth Miskin YouTube channel:

Year One Phonic Screening Test
Each year, children across England sit a phonics screening test, which usually takes place in June. It is designed to give teachers and parents information on how your child is progressing in phonics. However, because of school closures, the checks will not formally take place this year.
Even though these test will not be taking place, they are a good way to check your child is on track and making progress.

Below we will share a past paper. If possible, we would like you to look at this with your child. There are 40 words, 20 'nonsence' or 'alien' words ( not real words) and 20 real words. In previous years, the pass mark has been 32 correct words. Keep practising, we will share a different paper next week.

Hall, Patti - 1st Grade / Reading

We cannot stress enough how important reading with your child each day is. We understand that with home learning, trying to fit everything in will be a challenging task in itself. Please can we ask that, if possible, you prioritise reading every day, even if its just for 10 minutes.

Oxford Owl reading website are offering free access to their books online. The children will be familiar with these books as it is already part of our readings scheme. The colours match to their current reading colours. To gain access to these great resources, sign up for FREE at

Children can read the stories more than once. The first time they read they will be focusing on decoding, which means sounding out their words and this may take them a while. The second time they read start to encourage the children to sound out the words in their head (some children might need to whisper the sounds). The aim is to increase the speed and fluency so the children can focus on understanding what they are reading. Finally they can focus on using expression when reading the story and answering questions about what is happening.

Children learning to blend and read simple words such as 'cat' or 'went' will be learning Set 1 sounds and reading Ditty or red books.
Children learning Set 2 sounds will start to read Green, Purple and Pink.
Children learning Set 3 sounds will start to read Yellow, Blue then Grey.

If you are unsure of your child's book colour send an email to the shared mailbox and your child's teacher can advise you further. Happy reading!
