Hazel Class Home Learning
Welcome to the Home Learning page for Year 1 and the start of Term 6. Our message about Home Learning remains the same: this page is a useful point of reference for families, guiding you to resources linked to our learning in Literacy, Maths, Phonics and a range of other curriculum areas. We completely understand that everybody’s situation at home is different. You know the needs of your family more than anybody else, so please trust your instinct and do what you think is best.
Our new topic is …. SUPERHEROES!
Below you will find a link to a timetable of activities for the week ahead, detailing what you can focus on in our Liteacy, Maths and Phonics learning. You will also find a planner, with a range of topic-related activities for our new subject ‘Superheroes’.
We have a new story ‘Traction Man is Here’ by Mini Grey. You can watch the story using the link below. I have also attached a sheet you may find useful on Wednesday.
Our Home Learning Gallery is being added to all the time, it has just shifted to the bottom of the page. See if you can guess who created some of these pieces of learning!
Please keep in touch with pictures of work or activities you have completed. I’d love to hear how you’re doing. Please email all photographs or questions about home learning to email@example.com. For all other enquiries, including requests for school provision for keyworker children, please use firstname.lastname@example.org

Previous learning covered in Year 1:
Term 1: Deadly 60
Our topic this term is all about dangerous animals! We will consider life as an explorer and journey to wild places. We will become deadly 60 reporters and find out about the creatures in various extreme habitats around the world. In history we will learn about famous explorers both past and present. We will become wildlife photographers in art to find out about the animals that live in our local environment. We will finish our topic with a trip to the Wild Place and become real life explorers.
Term 2: Robots
Our topic this term is all about robots! Over the term we will discover how robots move and how things are powered by electricity. In DT we will design our own robot cars by making axels to help them move. In history we will learn about the changes in technology within our lifetime. We can’t wait for all this robot excitement!
Term 3: I’m a celebrity
This term we are turning ourselves into celebrities. We will start with a red carpet event, where we can all show off our glamorous outfits and walk down the red carpet. Throughout the topic we will be learning about famous celebrities of the past and present and deciding which one is our favourite. We will also be finding out about ourselves in our Science work, including what we need to survive and stay healthy. In Art we will have fun creating our own portraits in the style of famous artists.
Term 4: Horrible Histories
This term we are turning back time and travelling to 1666 when the Great Fire of London started. We will try to imagine what life was like in London before, during and after this event, using Samuel Pepys’ diary to help us to paint a picture of the scene. In Science, we will investigate light and sound, in Art we will look at patterns and textures in buildings and in Literacy we will work towards creating poems and newspaper reports. Our Maths learning will focus on weight, length, volume and capacity. We also look forward to a visit from the local fire service.
