Year 1 School Closure Guidance

Year 1 School Closure Guidance

The following information is to help you support your child at home. Any help you can provide your child at home would be very much appreciated.

Below you will find useful resources which you can download and use at home. If your child has difficulty completing tasks set, you can access additional resources within other year groups' class pages.

Class teachers will monitor and update online forums such as My Maths, Numbots and Times Tables Rockstars regularly. Please note however, any work completed will not be marked by class teachers. Any work the children wish to share with the class, such as Chilli Challenges, can be brought in after school reopens, or alternatively please email a picture to the school.

Hello from us!

Here's just a little snapshot of what we have doing since our school has closed!

Structuring your day

 In school, we wouldn’t dream of starting a day without a structured timetable so we completely appreciate the need for some type of structure. Please see the suggested timetable below. It incorporates many aspects of your ‘normal’ day whilst also fitting in some academic work that would usually be done at school. We understand that every family is different and has different needs/requirements; therefore, please feel free to adapt or amend to suit your family. If you need any further support of how to structure your day, please get in touch and we’ll aim to support you as much as possible.

Weekly planning overview


Each week, we will upload a weekly planning document which outlines specific tasks for you and your child to work on. You will see that most subject areas are covered in an attempt to give your child the breadth of learning whilst being at home. 

Additional resources


In additional to the above learning dedicated to each week, we have made a folder of different resources that are specific to different curriculum areas. The resources range from PowerPoint presentations that talk through the teaching sequence to application activities to apply knowledge and understanding.
