Year 1 and Nest Home Learning 25.03.2022

Set 1 ch

Set 1 ng

Set 2 air

Set 2 igh

Set 3 ure

Set 3 ear

Children reading Lilac or Red home reading books should watch the set 1 videos.

Children reading Green or purple home reading books should watch the set 2 videos.

The children in Year 1 have been learning about capacity this week. This will be next week’s new learning for the children that work in The Nest.

For Maths today please could you fill a container with water. It could be a bucket, the washing up bowl or any other large container you may have. Ask your child to investigate the best way of finding out the capacity of the container. We have been using non-standard measures this week so they will need to use a cup to find out how many cups of water the container holds. Allow your child to investigate how they will be accurate when they do this. They may need to do it a number of times. Do they need to scoop the water out of the container and count the amount of cups? Is it easier to fill a cup up and pour the water into the container each time? Is the cup full?

In Science this week we have been learning about how to classify animals. To consolidate this learning please watch the following videos and complete the quiz a little further down each page. 







For PSHE have a look around your home and look potential hazards. Discuss how to keep safe.


We hope you have a lovely day.

1 Minute maths app

1-Minute Maths offers children engaging and easily accessible practice in basic number. There’s no specific route or starting point. Having chosen a topic, each user answers a series of randomly generated questions (a different set of questions every time means they learn the concept, not a sequence of answers).

When the one minute’s up, the questions are automatically marked and presented on a breakdown screen, giving instant feedback on how they’ve done. If they’re struggling with a question, a ‘Hint’ button reformats the question as a familiar manipulative display that mirrors the approaches used in the White Rose Maths schemes of learning.


Have fun!
