Year 1 Weekly English and Maths – 06/07/2020


In English, we will spend one day reading and comprehending a text; one day on spelling, one day on grammar, one day completing a short writing activity and one day focusing on Lexia.

Reading and Comprehension – Carrot Club

Share the story with your child. Then, discuss the questions from the Carrot Club Comprehension. There is no need to record your child’s answers. However, if you wish to, a question and answer sheet is provided.

Read Carrot Club. There are lots of different characters in Carrot Club, including beetroot, broccoli and, of course, carrots. Design a lunchbox filled with lots of healthy treats. Then, choose one item you have drawn and write a sentence to explain why it is in your lunchbox.

If you are unable to print the worksheet, you can complete the activity on a piece of paper.

What I’m Looking For:

  • 4 pictures
  • 4 labels
  • Use word / sound mats to help with spelling

Reading and Phonics

Children should spend 20 minutes at least three times per week using Lexia. Children should take part in phonics and spelling daily (see Ruth Miskin YouTube Videos).

A Hold a Sentence video is now also available on the Ruth Miskin YouTube Channel. There are two sentences to choose from. If your child is learning set 2 sounds, please choose Hold a Sentence 1. If your child is learning set 3 sounds, please choose Hold a Sentence 2. We recommend that you complete this activity twice a week.
