Year 1

Please find summer learning, including information about your new topic, for our new Year 1 children.

Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl. They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth. Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planet. Which is your favourite dinosaur? The Tyrannosaurus, the Brachiosaurus or the Micropachycephalosaurus? Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes, he did. Run!


Below you can find the attachment to download the 'Dinosaur Planet' knowledge organiser and glossary. 

Phonics and Spellings

You can practice some spellings over the holidays, have a look at the 'Tricky Red words' for Year 1. Can you get your adult to say the word and have a go at writing it. 

You could also take a tricky word and see if you can create a sentence out loud then have a go at writing it down.

Ideas to use phonics over the summer holidays:

Can you write a shopping list? 

Can you make a list of 5 or 10 things you want to do over the holidays?



Could you have a go at writing the date?

Long date example: Wednesday 21st July 2021

Short date example: 21.07.21

Maybe you could write a diary entry, can you write the long date? What have you done today? What is the weather like?
