School Closure Work

Year 1 School Closure Work.

Try to have lots of fun at home, see what you can build, make and create. If you can play and investigate out in the garden, then please explore! There's lots of ideas and work below for you. These are very strange times so please look after yourselves and loved ones around you.

  • Please use bug club to read with your children, 10 minutes a day is fantastic!  School code: tcgc
  • The children’s passwords are inside their school reading record. Check their old record just in case!
  • Here is a link to some comprehension questions for the children to practise.
  • Book review – please complete the book review sheet. If you have time, you could do more than one. We love to hear all about the books that you read. Why not create a reading den and read all your favourite books to your cuddly toys?


  • Read and explore different fairy tales. Can the children make up their own fairy-tale. Perhaps the children could change the gingerbread man to a ginger bread tiger etc.
  • The 100 high frequency words are very important. Therefore the children could take this time to learn to read and spell these words. 
  • Draw a picture of their own imaginary world and write about it. Here are a few pictures to give you some ideas.



Religious Education

  • During this time in school we would be learning about the Easter story. Use this video to help the children understand the different part of the Easter Story.  
  • The children could write a letter as if they were Mary. They could write about hoe the crucifixion of Jesus made them feel. 
  • They could create a story board of the Easter story.



  • Research different types of transport. Look at how it has changed over time.
  • What transport is going past your house?
  • Ask your parents and grandparents what transport they used to use.
  • Use the following video to help you with your discussion.



  • Do you know the countries in the UK? Use this song to help you remember them. 
  • Can you study your local area. I know we can't go out at the moment however, you can use Google Earth to explore the local area. 



  • How many different materials can you find in your house? Take a picture of all the materials you find.
  • What can you make out of the recyclable materials in your house.
  • Try these fun science activities at home. Try some f then in your garden too!



  • Can you draw a self-portrait of yourself?
  • Have a look at Van Gogh’s `A Starry Night` painting- can you create your own? You could use your street as inspiration for your painting. Think about how you can use the swirls in your painting.
    • You can use paints, crayons, pencils…anything you find useful in your house.
