Please watch the video and then answer the subtraction questions using the number line to count back. 

Below is a link to an online number line so that you don't have to draw a number line into your home learning book. If you are using a phone or tablet you could take a screenshot and then 'edit' using the pen tool to draw the jumps.

Relationships and Health Education


This is a baseline activity before starting the topic we will come back and evaluate at the end point. Please either use the worksheet below or write/ draw into your home learning book. 


 Ask your child to close their eyes and imagine God and spend a moment picturing what comes to mind. Then ask them to draw that picture in the space on the sheet. 

In the space titled, ‘I am important to God because…’ ask the children to complete that sentence in as many ways as they can.

 Then, in the space provided on the sheet, ask them to draw or write any words that help them explain what they think the ‘Kingdom of God’ is. Say that it doesn’t matter if they don’t know, they can just draw or write what they think it might mean.


Please take a photo of this piece of work and email back to me. Thank you.

Monday 18th January

Good morning Year 1. 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to get outside and have some time away from school work. 

This weekend I managed to get 10,000 steps on both Saturday and Sunday. I also had a games night on Saturday- I lost! I think I will have a re-match next week. 

Have a good day everyone. 

Miss Cooper 


Relationships and Health Education

This term we are starting a new statutory curriculum called Relationships and Health Education- RHE for short!


Our first module is called 'Created and Loved by God' and explores the individual. 

Today, I would like you to share this prayer before starting your home learning activities for the day.

Remember children- put your hands together, be calm and be ready to speak to God, make the sign of the cross and say the prayer together (you might want to listen to your adult for the first time you will be able to join in with "Amen"), finish by making the sign of the cross again.
