Project Home Learning


LO: To identify a variety of human and physical features found in your local environment.

In Year 1 we have been learning about the different features in our surroundings that are also found on maps. The children are to draw and label a list of human and physical features found in the house and garden.  If you do not have access to a printer, please draw the table in the school home book.




Maths help week 1

During the first week of home learning children will be practising their addition and subtraction skills. For this, we use two main methods: Head and fingers and 100 square.

Head & Fingers method

We use this method for basic additions and subtractions such as 5 + 2 or 7 – 3. Head and fingers is a method whereby the children put the larger number on their heads and count on the other number with their fingers.

See this video tutorial to explain the head and fingers method.

100 square method

The hundred square method allows children to start on a number and then add or subtract ‘jumps’ from that number. While children can use this for easier number sentences, it is most often used for more complex ones such as 5 + 12 (see in this video). Follow the following directions to add/subtract the desired amount.

One jump right = +1

One jump left = -1

One jump down = +10

One jump up = -10

Here is another video which shows a more complex addition.


This week we are doing some poetry as well as new Mrs Wordsmith words. Keep up with your reading and practising your spellings too. 



Many thanks, Year 1 team.
