Learning From Home
Year One Daily Learning Routine
Do not worry about trying to keep your child to the full routine they had at school. However, children will feel more comfortable and learn better with a predictable routine to the day.
- get up and go to bed at the same time each day
- have regular meal times
- have regular breaks
- make time to be active – children are used to regular play throughout the day
We will be providing a daily diet of four learning tasks for you to work on with your child.
These will be:
- Maths – one online lesson/ set of paper learning per day
- Phonics - one online lesson/ set of paper learning per day
- Reading – reading either an ebook online or your child’s reading book
- English / Topic – one activity per day
We will publish these tasks on the website on a Monday morning and will also make these or similar activities available as paper copies for those that require them.
It is important that your child takes part as much of the learning as possible.

Introducing the Ruler
You will either have a book borrowed from school or can read an ebook online. Your child’s teacher will let you know which colour book band your child is reading or you can look for the band on the book you have at home.

The webpage looks like this:
Please use this structure each week for the book your child is reading.
Talk about the front cover and the information on the back of the book. What might it be about? Why do you think that? Is it a fiction (story) book or a non-fiction (information) book? How do you know that?
Read the beginning of the book together.
Talk about what you have read so far. What might happen next? Why do you think that? What other information might you find out? Who are the main characters? What are they like? Where does the story take place?
Continue to read the book.
Re- read the book. Talk about the punctuation, are there any speech marks / writing in BOLD? How do we need to change our voices when we read those parts? Are there any phonic sounds you notice in the book? E.g. lots of words with ch in them.
Read again, hopefully your child will be more fluent /confident with the words now. Re-read your favourite page, why is it your favourite? Is it because of what happens or the picture or the sounds of some of the words? Look for a part of the book where the author could have chosen a different word for example it says “big” what other words could be used here?
Read for a final time. Ask questions about what happens in the book. Ask your child to retell the story or tell you their favourite fact that they have learnt.
Access to games and resources on Phonics play is FREE at the moment.
