Good morning.

I hope everyone is OK today.

This week has gone fast (well for me anyway). We are already on the last day of home learning activities before tomorrow's Fun Friday Focus. I wonder what the focus will be???

Today I would like you to retell the video of 'Something Fishy' from the beginning to the end in the correct order. Here is the link to video in case you want to watch it again.

Use all the skills you have learnt this week.. adjectives and joining sentences together using 'and'.


Can you start your sentences using these words:

In the beginning...



After that...




You should have 6 sentences in total. Read your work back and check it makes sense.

Did you remember capital letters and full stops?


I would love to see your writing from today so please email a picture over to 


3D Shapes

Activity: Name the 3D shapes below.

Write a list of the shapes in your home learning book.


Let's be imaginative and design your own sea creature using a piece of clothing just like in the video "Something Fishy".


Choose an animal and piece of clothing and create your own hybrid creature.


For example in the video:

fish= socks

shark= trousers

turtle= hat

octopus= T-shirt and tie


Maybe you could draw:

Wednesday 3rd June

Hello Year 1

Where has the nice weather gone... don't look at the weather forecast!

Yesterday I started to give some of you a ring. It was lovely to hear from you because it's been a while since we last spoke. Remember I will be calling with No Caller ID. 

Have a nice day everyone. 

Love Miss Cooper xxxxx


To join clauses using the word 'and'.


Use the document below to join two sentences together using the word 'and'. We do this to show the reader that there is more than one piece of information.


Measure Length using a ruler

-Watch the video

-Answer the questions from the document below or if you have a ruler at home you could measure 10 items in your house. 

Remember to read the ruler accurately and when writing the measurement down don't forget 'cm' for centimetre. 


Well it's a while since I updated you on my plants so here is a photo. The warm weather has definitely helped. 


Wild Plants

Read the powerpoint information all about Wild Plants. 

Activity: Whilst out for a walk please have a look for wild plants... they are everywhere. Make a tally chart and see which plant is the most/ least common. (If it's raining today save this activity for another time). 

Here is the tally chart for you to copy onto a piece of paper to use whilst out on your hunt. 

Tuesday 2nd June

Good morning everyone.

I hope you managed to get some work done whilst also enjoying the lovely sunny weather yesterday. 

Yesterday, I was back at school working with some children.  I will also start to give everyone a ring again over the next two weeks. It's been a while since I last spoke to you all so it will be fab to hear from you. 

Have a nice day.

Love Miss Cooper xxxx



Today we will be looking at adjectives.

Remember that adjectives are used to describe the quantity (how many), quality or opinion, size, age,  shape, colour, origin and material.


Using the document below choose one sea creature to describe. You don't have to draw the table into your book you could just write a list of adjectives.

I have done fish as an example.


Measure Length

-Watch the video

-Answer the questions from the document below into your home learning book.


Today is the start of our new topic... THE UNITED KINGDOM
