Year 1 Remote Learning wk beginning 14th February 2022

Hi Year 1,


Here is your remote learning for this week if you are isolating - remember, you don't have to complete any work at home if you feel poorly! Make sure your grown ups let the school office know if you are isolating. Mrs Large will check in with them via e-mail as soon as possible to check you are all ok, and to help you with your remote learning if needs be.


If you follow this link it will take you to a padlet containing most your work. (You may prefer to finish the work on last week’s padlet first if you have already been isolating for a few days – that’s absolutely fine): 

(The same padlet was used at this time last year, so please just ignore any old comments etc - but feel free to add your own.)

Here are some extra things for you to have a go at based around your class’ current learning:

Children’s Mental Health Week 2022:

We are celebrating Children’s Mental Health Week at the moment! This year’s theme is ‘Growing Together’. Mental Health is SO important. We are lucky at St Johns that we spend a lot of time learning about our emotions and self-regulation.

Here is a video introduction to Children’s Mental Health Week:

Growth Stories

Human beings change and grow – we do it all the time and in many ways. Emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’. At these times, we are reminded of how much we need others in our lives to help us to keep growing.   

Here are some videos of some grown ups you might recognise talking about growth and the challenges they have faced and overcome. If a grown up at home feels well enough, you might like to watch them together and talk about them.

Here is a little picture to remind you of the work you will have been doing in school based around ‘Zones of Regulation’. It may help you if you deal with any big emotions you may experience while you are off school poorly. Remember – it’s ok to not be ok! The self regulation tools you have learned at school will help, and it’s ALWAYS worth talking to a trusted adult about how you are feeling.



You have a new Topic – Wild Safari!        

Here are some videos for you to watch to help you understand some elements of your new topic – including climate (weather!)   (ask and adult to help you skip to 7:15 to see which animals live in which climate zones)  



Watch a Safari here: 

Can you think of some amazing adjectives to say in a sentence to describe the animals?


For example,


“I can see a tall yellow giraffe.”  


“ I can see a big, grey elephant. “  



Here are some resources based on counting – you don’t have to do everything! There is a selection for you to choose the activities which suit you best:

Here are some lessons based on counting, and numbers to 50/20:

Have a go at some of the video lessons on this link (you definitely don’t need to do more than one a day, and if you started these last week, you can simply pick up where you left off):

If that’s too tricky, try some of these lessons based on numbers 0-20 (you definitely don’t need to do more than one a day, and if you started these last week, you can simply pick up where you left off):

Here is some more counting practice:

Counting in twos:

Counting in fives:

If you want a challenge, you could try counting back in 5s too:


Remember, there are lots more great remote learning resources on the school website here:
