Year 1 Learning. Week 6, Term 3


Safer Internet Day 7.1.22 – Home Learning Activity: To make a list or take photos of technology you have in the home to bring in and share. We will be doing the same in school this week.

This week, you will receive an email about logging in to book slots for Parents Evenings for the first week back in Term 4, Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd February. Guidance will be in this email if you need to make an alternative appointment to meet in Week 2 to discuss individual learning support plans for specific children.

  • You will find below a grid showing the sessions to be taught each week. They do not exactly follow days as each class has different sessions due to support and PE times being different but it allows you to see the week as a snapshot of sessions. 

We will always aim to get outside, whatever the weather, as much as possible so children will really need a waterproof coat each day.

Session 2: Children to write their retell of the story. Refer back to the story map- only write the beginning and middle of the story. 
Session 3: Think about how the ending of the story could be changed.Finish writing story from yesterday but with an alternative ending such as “the wolf stayed for tea with Little Red Riding Hood and Grandma”. 
Session 4: Handwriting: Start with some handwriting patterns first and then use for phonemes and CEW words of the week. Afterwards complete ‘Fix the sentence PPT’.


  • Read as part of a group. Look at front cover details and explore making predictions, using phonetic knowledge to decode unknown words and to extend vocabulary. Read aloud and look at increasing fluency and use discussion as a group to discuss comprehension and start to answer written questions.
  • In reading groups, continue to continue on phonic and CEW recognition gaps identified.
